Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Passage: Ephesians 1:3-5
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 52 mins 57 secs
On what basis does God choose who will make up the church? Listen to this lesson to learn that God does not choose who will believe, but in His foreknowledge He knows who will willingly trust in Christ as their Savior. See that God has chosen their destiny and mission. Learn from the Wedding Guest parable that it is the volition of the guests that is the deciding factor and that those who are willing to attend are given robes of righteousness in Christ. Learn what it means when it says God loved Jacob but He hated Esau. Realize that you, as an individual, must accept God’s free gift so you will enter into Heaven and have eternal life.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:1-2
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 25 secs
Why does God call us choice ones, based on what He knows from eternity past? Listen to this lesson to see the importance of understanding election and foreknowledge. See that it is those who trust in Christ as their Savior who have imputed righteousness or the right garments to wear to the wedding feast. Gain an understanding of sanctification in its three phases. See that being holy does not mean we are morally pure but that we have been set apart. Relax knowing that since we do nothing for positional sanctification, we can do nothing to lose it and can confess our sins which are covered by the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:1
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 18 secs
Time to put on your thinking cap! Some truths are so foundational but technical, that they must be studied many times until they become clear. Divine election and foreknowledge are two of those concepts. Listen to this lesson to gain a comprehensive understanding of how Christians are God’s choice ones designed to be conformed to His Son through obedience. See how God’s foreknowledge encompasses all that will happen, could happen, and should happen. Find out that God brings order out of chaos to fulfill His plan, giving us complete peace when we put our trust in Him.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:1
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 18 secs
Does God override our volition in terms of our eternal destiny? Did He arbitrarily choose certain people to be saved or did He know ahead of time who would choose to accept Christ as their Savior? Listen to this lesson to get Biblical answers to these important questions about God’s election and His foreknowledge. Accept the many Scriptures that teach that all who trust in God’s plan are in Christ and have His perfect righteousness.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:1
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 9 mins 9 secs
When the Bible talks about someone being elected, does it mean that they are chosen to be saved? Listen to this lesson to see that election does not refer to salvation or justification but it concerns being selected for God’s purpose in history and refers to serving God. In the Old Testament, see that Abraham was selected after He was saved. Understand that election means the choice one just as Christ was the Choice One of God. See that when we accept Christ as our Savior, we possess His righteousness and are qualified to have a mission and a purpose in God’s plan.

Passage: Romans 11:7-23
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 3 mins 26 secs
Here's a riddle for you: What do an olive tree and a lump of dough have in common? Listen to this lesson to learn how the Apostle Paul uses these two illustrations to show how God's sovereignty selects groups for certain purposes. Learn about the cause of the blindness of the Jewish nation and how this opened the door for Gentiles to become a temporary channel of blessing to the world. Be warned that this should not lead to pride on their part.

Passage: Romans 11:5-11
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 3 secs
"Lonely, I'm so lonely." Is this the refrain you're singing when you look around at all the people who reject God in the world today? Listen to this lesson to learn about a time when most of the Jewish people were heading down a path of self-destruction and laughing at God's messengers. At the same time there was a remnant of those who decided to prepare their hearts to follow Him. Even though they were ignorant of many of the commandments, God dealt with them graciously. Learn the difference between grace and works and listen to other examples of the Jewish remnant.

Passage: Acts 10-11
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 12 mins 1 sec
A commentary on the election presents the sad state of our republic and its worldview shift away from the purposes of our founding fathers. The realization is we have come full circle into the final cycle of civilization. The solution is not a shift of circumstantial issues but a crisis-driven hope in the truth of God’s Word to shine as a light in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation.

The apostles lived in a degenerate, hostile environment, and except for John, lost it all, were tortured, and died as martyrs. Peter was a commercial fisherman, living on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. He met Jesus through his brother Andrew. Peter’s home was the base of operation for Jesus in the area and many miracles took place there. Peter is representative of many men, impulsive, assertive, loyal and prone to get his eyes on circumstance. But Peter spoke profound truths and Jesus set him apart as a leader. Learn about Peter as the small rock and Jesus as the chief cornerstone, and about Peter’s travels to Babylon and possibly to Britain. Witness his eventual torture and death in a barbaric dungeon in Rome.
