PSA244 II Timothy 1: Away From His Forefathers mp3

II Timothy is the last letter of Paul, and I believe the last book written of the Bible. It is to Timothy, Paul’s faithful young helper of long standing. Paul serves God, but he does so away from his forefathers, yet with a clear conscience! Timothy had a genuine, unpretended, unhypocritical faith, yet many false teachers in Ephesus did not. Will we serve God faithfully like Paul and Timothy, or for personal gain as did their enemies?

PSA243 The Great Tribulation Test mp3

In this message, we consider that after this dispensation of grace we live in comes the Kingdom of God. This kingdom ends in a great test of all mankind living on this earth. This is a real test, similar to the testing of Adam. The nations decide to revolt against God’s government. New nations and rulers arise under their own power. How long is the tribulation? When does the Day of the LORD begin in the tribulation? What causes the great flight to the mountains, and who is to flee? What is the supernatural element in all this? Finally, we consider the great final battle that ends this period and the glorious Parousia of Jesus Christ.

PSA242 Bins for Bible Prophecies mp3

There is a need for proper sorting of prophetic material into a proper order of future events. We must sort predictive prophecies, like one might sort screws into bins. Commonly accepted is the idea that future bins include the tribulation period, the thousand-year parousia of Jesus Christ, the little season, and the new heaven and new earth. Yet are these bins sufficient to incorporate all future predicted events? I argue that they are not, but that we must add another bin, the last days, which is a pre-millennial kingdom of God. I show that this period must exist, and demonstrate prophecies that must be sorted into it and not into other periods.

PSA241 Prophecy, Prophets, and Interpretation mp3

In this message, we consider prophecy and what it is in the Bible. The word is used for more than just predicting the future, as we often use it. In the Bible, it can cover a wide range of words from God. Then, we consider the prophets themselves. Who is called a prophet in the Bible? We see that many we would not traditionally think of as prophets are called that by Scripture. Then, we consider various important principles that we need to know and understand in order to interpret prophecy and know what God meant by what He said.

PSA240 Heaven or Earth, Where is the Future Home of God’s Redeemed? mp3

What Is Man? What Is His Destiny? Series

In this message, we consider the question of the future destiny of the believer. Is heaven our future home, or is the earth our future home in the kingdom of God? We consider the lack of Biblical evidence for any clear passage stating heaven is our future home. Is the Kingdom of God on earth a good hope, or a disappointing one? What about the commonly used passages of Philippians 3:20-21 and John 14:2-3, which are used to teach heaven as our future home? What about the idea that the believer of today has a special hope “in heavenly places?” What is our true, future home?

PSA239 Resurrection Versus Death; Which is Our Hope? mp3

What Is Man? What Is His Destiny? Series

In this message, we consider the idea that one goes to heaven the instant one dies versus the idea that one receives life only upon resurrection. Which of these views is consistent with the teaching of the Bible? What about passages that seem to teach otherwise?

PSA238 Views of the Punishment of the Wicked mp3

What Is Man? What Is His Destiny? Series

In this message, we consider various views of the future punishment of the wicked. Traditionalism states that the future punishment of the wicked is eternal, conscious torment in hell. Hell is made out to be preserving fire, keeping alive those who are cast there. Universalism believes that all wicked men, and perhaps all wicked beings, will eventually be restored to God and saved. Hell is made out to be remedial fire, and those cast there are eventually saved. Another belief is that there is no future punishment of the wicked, but rather that they perish as soon as they die. This makes hell out to be remedial fire again, but this time to punish wicked believers. Finally, there is the view of conditional immortality, which believes that the future punishment of the wicked is to be raised and judged, after which at some point they are destroyed, whereas only the righteous are granted immortality. This view makes hell to be consuming fire, burning up all those cast there. Which view of these is, in fact, the truth?

PSA237 Grace Period Start to Finish mp3

What Happened After Acts 28:28–God’s Current Work Series

The dispensation of grace started with Paul’s great proclamation in Acts 28:28. During the first two years of this dispensation, while Paul was living in his own, rented house in Rome, he wrote four books: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon. The gospel of John was also written during this time, with the other gospels as background material. After Paul’s two years he was released and wrote I Timothy, II Timothy, and Titus. We discuss the dispensational significance of all these books. We consider that there was a “transition period” into the dispensation of grace between Acts 28:28 and the writing of II Timothy. We consider a fifth possible “dividing line” for today’s dispensation that some suggest: post Acts. Finally, we consider what God’s next move will be once the dispensation of grace comes to an end. Just how will it end, and what is next?

PSA236 What About the Body of Christ? mp3

What Happened After Acts 28:28–God’s Current Work Series

In this message, we consider the phrase “body of Christ.” Is this truly the special name for those who are part of God’s calling today? Considering the phrase “head over…the church which is His body” in Ephesians 1:22-23. What does it mean that Christ is the “head”? What is a “body,” and what body is this referring to? What is the meaning of the word “church,” and what is God talking about when He speaks of His church? Finally, what is the church which is His body, and what is this important passage truly telling us?

PSA235 Which Dividing Line? mp3

What Happened After Acts 28:28–God’s Current Work Series

In this message, we consider the various dispensational dividing lines different people put forward as the start of God’s work today. The knee-jerk idea of the beginning of the New Testament. The popular idea of the events at Pentecost in Acts 2. The idea of the middle of Act, at the start of Paul’s ministry or various other places. Finally, the idea that it is as the end of the book of Acts at Paul’s pronouncement at Acts 28:28. Which one of these lines fits as the start of a work where God works with all nations, wherein He works in secret, and wherein He works exclusively in grace?
