Colossians (2011)
Sun, Aug 28, 2011
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 1:24
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 54 mins 38 secs
What is suffering? What is happiness? Many would say that suffering is when life doesn't meet with our expectations. Many would say that happiness is associated with a specific set of pleasurable circumstances.

In this lesson we learn more about different levels of joy and happiness, and what gladness means. We learn that when our happiness is influenced by people, emotions, and circumstances, we become enslaved to them. We learn what robust joy is. We learn how abiding in Christ is connected to real joy and stability.

Passage: Acts 13:13-39
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 31 secs
In this section Paul continues the gospel message to these Jews by shifting to the Davidic Covenant, a promise which was very familiar to them. Review the Davidic Covenant which is an elaboration of the seed promise in the Abrahamic Covenant. Walk back through numerous Old Testament Messianic passages that address Israel’s future hope in turning to God, His restoration of the Land and promise to David of an eternal kingdom through his seed. See how directly Paul addresses these Jews on the basis of their well-known scripture and the unquestionable ways Paul presents to them, through recognition of the promise of the Davidic Covenant, that these things are fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

Will we go to heaven when we die if we've never told anyone that we believe in Jesus Christ for salvation? Listen to this lesson to learn what "confess with the mouth" means in Romans 10:9 with its special emphasis on the Jewish nation. Find out the three phases of salvation and how only one assures us of our eternal destiny and happens the instant we believe in Christ. Learn about the prophesied two returns of the Jews to the land and striking details of the coming Armageddon Campaign.

Have you ever wished you could be a time traveler into the future? There's a time coming that no one would choose because its horrors almost defy description. Listen to this lesson to learn about a time that was prophesied in the Old Testament when horrendous, indescribable events take place that are beyond anything the world has ever known. See several titles for this seven-year time period including the Day of the Lord and Jacob's trouble. Learn how God pours out His wrath upon the human race and rejoice that all believers of the Church Age will already have been snatched up at the Rapture before this time begins. Choose the present moment to accept Christ's work on the Cross for your salvation so you, too, can escape this violent, deadly dark time.

Passage: Revelation 6 & Daniel 7-9
Series: God's Plan for the Ages - Dispensations (2014)
Duration: 59 mins 51 secs
Who is the Antichrist? Step right up and make your guess or better yet, listen to this message to learn that he won't be revealed until after the Rapture of the church. See that he bursts upon the world stage during a time filled with wars, earthquakes, and epidemics. Observe that this charismatic and cunning man will be empowered by Satan and adored by the masses. Follow the panorama of history where prophecy has already been fulfilled leading to a future, evil kingdom, worse than anything the world has ever known. Be certain of your eternal salvation as you remember that the clock is always ticking down to the end of the Church Age when Christ will come for all who have trusted Him.

Hated? Dragged into court? Our own families turned against us? Listen to this lesson to hear how Jesus warned his twelve disciples that they would face persecution. Learn the difference between the Gospel of the Kingdom and the Gospel of the Cross. Understand what ''he who endures to the end will be saved'' means. Even though this was directed to Jesus' disciples and those in the future Tribulation, understand that during the Church Age we will face opposition and that Jesus promises never to leave us or forsake us.
