  • Ephesians 1:1-4 God's role in predestination. God is not passive. His arms are not folded. God is absolutely in charge of working out details of absolutely everything. As believers we have duties and responsibilities in the Christian life. The Apostle Paul addresses this in the book of Ephesians. So hold onto your seats it's going to be a bumpy ride. 
  • Ephesians 1:5-10 God adopted us as a son to Himself because of, or through, His Son, Jesus Christ. God is orchestrating this program. He saved us according to His kind intention of His will. God's in charge of salvation! These few verses are loaded with strong doctrinal words! 
  • Ephesians 1:11-23 Ephesians was the second most pagan city Paul had to deal with (Corinthians was the first most pagan city). The church of Ephesis was swimming in the sea of paganism! Here we have God's divine viewpoint! 
  • Ephesians 2:11 What covenants did God promise? How many people in America realize that the blessings of salvation comes through the Jewish people?
  • Ephesians 2:14-3:13 The Apostle Paul is stunned about the change the Lord is performing combining the Jew and Gentile into 'one' spiritual body: The Age of Grace! 
  • Ephesians 3:13-21 The Apostle Paul wants us to understand something that is unexplainable and he saw the big picture of how God is working in those things that come against us. If we close our Bibles we will not understand! 
  • Ephesians 4:17-32 This passage perfectly illustrates the Doctrine of Total Depravity
  • Ephesians 4:30-5:10 Most Christians really do not understand forgiveness. They make the mistake that if they are not angry anymore that they have forgiven that person. What is true Biblical forgivness?
  • Ephesians 5:10-32 Elder David Gant teaches on how these verses can be applied to our Christian life and how they help us relate to one another in Christ. 
  • Ephesians 6:1-5 The Apostle Paul makes the rounds in the Christian Community.
  • Ephesians 6:6-24 Paul had certain freedoms though he talks about being in chains

PHILIPPIANS

  • Introduction to Philippians Introduction to Philippians 
  • Philippians 1 & 2 God has purposes for whatever troubles we encounter. 
  • Philippians 1:1-15 We should not play games with worship. Worship has to be from the heart as well as the mouth. We should be worshiping in Christ Jesus, not in ourselves, not in our denominations, and not in our churches. The Apostle Paul opposes the self-esteem movement when he writes, "Put no confidence in the flesh." 
  • Philippans 3:15-4:3 Can believers be so fleshly, so in conflict with other believers, that they are enemies of the Cross? 
  • Philippians 4:4-9 The Lord is watching. He's not far off. Therefore, watch what you say and do in your moment to moment Christian walk.

JAMES

  • James 1:25 The Law of Liberty.

1 PETER

  • 1st Peter Introduction Who Is In Charge? Who Do We Think We Are?
  • 1st Peter 1:1-12 The Apostle Paul wrote 13 outstanding letters to the church. They are logically tight and firm. Oftentimes we are guilty of forgetting about the Apostle Peter. Peteri s the main voice in the book of Acts. He is the apostle to the Jews. He was a fisherman, the one who denied Christ three times but we also forget that the other apostles simply slipped away. The Apostle Peter had a big ministry, possibly bigger than the Apostle Paul.
  • 1st Peter 1:13-16 Peter goes from one link to the next link and keeps the thoughts going. Censure your mind as a belt, don't let your mind, your thinking get scattered, stay sober (meaning emotionally sober), fix your anticipation on the grace that will come by the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
  • 1 Peter 1:17-2:2 There is no longer a sacrifical system. We're in a mobile age. God works in you and me and we represent the Lord Jesus Christ to the world. It's a different deal.
  • 1 Peter 2:2-12 The church is made up of Jew and Gentile. The Epistles are written to the church age, but the bulk of Revelation is written for the Tribulation Age.
  • 1 Peter 2:13-20 When should we obey the government and when should we not?
  • 1 Peter 2:21-3:4 To this you were called because Christ suffered for you leaving you as an example that you should follow in His steps (-vs 21)
  • 1 Peter 3:5-12 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselve beautiful (-vs 5)
  • 1 Peter 3:22-4:11 [Jesus Christ] who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand with angels, authorities and powers in submission to Him. (vs -22)
  • 1 Peter 4:7-19 The end of all things is near. therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. (-vs 7)
  • 1 Peter 5:9-13 Resist him [the devil], standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
  • 1 Peter 5:10-5:15 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

  • 1 John 2:12
  • 1 John 2:18-26 The apostle John talks about the forces that were coming against the church in his day.
  • 1 John 3:1 The world can know us (Christians) to a degree, but there is always a stop point. That's because we're coming from a different orientation, a Biblical orientation.
  • 1 John 3:23 John ties in our belief in Jesus with the love we should have for one another.
  • 1 John 4:11 One thing John does constantly is put the Christian life as an ongoing thing. To paraphrase John would go something like this: 'If you don't see anything coming out of this person's life, the more likely this person is not saved." John is very concerned about fakes and phonies.
  • 1 John 5:6-12 What is baptism? To dip or to immerse? Baptism explained!
  • 1 John 5:16 The sin leading to death, explained. Also explained: Which sin does NOT lead to death?

JUDE

  • Jude (Part One) This was written at about 68-70 AD. The churches were beginning to deteriorate. There was open sin and people who were not born again had been sneaking into the congregations.
  • Jude (Part Two) The problem with human nature is that we go in all the wrong directions.
