Foundations of Bible Study - Understanding the Plan of God

The first half of this study addresses questions asked after the previous study, viz., 

  1. Do we do good because we have to or because we want to and when do we know we are being hypocritical?
  2. Making it practical
  3. Why do we not NEED to understand the Bible?
  4. Do soldiers in war commit sin?
  5. Does it mean if we are not perfect, we cannot go to Heaven?

The second half introduces the need to understand the plan God is undertaking in order to understand the Bible, make Christianity relevant, and create a sense of repentance.

Foundations of Bible Study: Distorted Relationships - Job, the Disciplined Man Who Did the Right Things

Our study on Job continues with an exploration of the words of Elihu and his taking Job to task for questioning God“s justice.  God afflicts Job because He loves Job and God blesses Job because He loves him.  Every dimension of God“s relationship with us is clothed in His love for us.

Foundations of Bible Study: Distorted Relationships - Job, the Disciplined Man Who Did the Right Things

In this conclusion to the Foundations of Bible Study series, we review Elihu“s speech, see how God addresses Job whom He had so complimented at the beginning of the book, see how Job“s coming to self knowledge in the face of God transforms his relationship with God, and then review how the entire Foundations of Bible Study series ties together.

Opening our Eyes in Ps 119:17-24 and Keys to Prayer in Ps 25

We introduced the extraordinary acrostic Psalm 119 tonight and explored verses 17-24 as they are part of the Thursday Week I Daytime Office.  We explored the psalmist's prayer to have their eyes opened to see the wonders of God's law and how our eyes are opened.  We discussed the concept of being a sojourner in this world and made some cross references to the Beatitudes.

We then began our exposition of Psalm 25.  We noted that it addressed major themes of prayer such as recollection and contemplation.  We looked at issues of justice and persecution and examples of Satan as our accuser.  We cited the need to always ask for our eyes to be opened to see what we do not see and explored the connection between God being good and His showing sinners the way.

Rev 19:1-8 - The Bride Has Made Herself Ready

Tonight's study started with the background of the pictured destruction of Rome and the harlot upon the beast that set the stage for Revelation 19.  We briefly discuss the word "Hallelujah" and its evolution into "Alleluia".  We spend some time examining the idea of eternal punishment and what the earliest Church believed about it.  We conclude with an exploration of the bride making herself ready.
