Messages with tag - Babylon

Thu, Apr 25, 2019
Passage: 1 Peter 5:11-14
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 3 mins 50 secs
Persecution of Christians is happening more and more frequently. What should we do to prepare ourselves and our families? Listen to this lesson to learn a number of biblical ways to ensure that you can stand firm in the face of unjust treatment. See what God’s glory and His dominion mean. As we come to the end of this epistle find out who Silvanus is and hear six points on whether Babylon is the actual geographical city or a code for another place. Accept that no matter what trouble comes our way, we are to remember that God’s power is greater than all His enemies and His grace will provide for us.

Passage: 1 Peter 5:8-10 & Isaiah 13-14
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 10 mins 23 secs
Begin a riveting exploration of the unseen world that affects everything we do today. Listen to this lesson to hear about a prehistoric angelic creature in the Bible called Lucifer (as well as other names) who rebelled against God and the part he plays throughout human history. Hear three views of interpretation of Isaiah 13–14 and Ezekiel 28 and which one is supported by a literal, inerrant view of Scripture. See nine reasons why these passages are referring to Satan and whether Babylon’s final destruction is yet to come. Learn from this that Christians today still face Satanic attacks.

Passage: 1 Peter 3:19 & Isaiah 14
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 27 secs
Hear a summary of the speakers and their messages at the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Conference held in Dallas, Texas this week. Then continue with the study of the origin of Satan and evil in this world. In Isaiah 14 learn about “Lucifer” who has fallen from Heaven after arrogantly asserting his desire to ascend to Heaven. Then hear how his end will take place in the “Day of the Lord”. Find out how we as Christians have a role to play as witnesses to this great conflict of the ages.

Passage: 1 Peter
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 57 secs
If you have an inquiring mind, you’ll enjoy hearing many vital questions answered about 1 Peter. Listen to this lesson to learn whom the intended audience for this book was: Gentiles or Jews. Several supporting reasons for the majority view that it was addressed to Gentiles are discussed but stronger arguments are convincing in the belief that it was intended for Jews, including terminology and the quoting of Old Testament passages. Another question concerns where Peter was when he wrote this book and historical Babylon seems to be the most likely location. Next, we ask, why was this epistle written? Based on the number of times the word suffering and words for adversity are used, it becomes obvious that the audience for the book were undergoing persecution and troubles in their life. Look forward to the encouragement and strength we can derive for our own lives from a study of this book.
