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

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

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

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?

PSA234 God’s Various Times mp3

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

In this message, we consider the various times of God’s plans for this world. From the Garden of Eden in Genesis and the start of God’s work, God worked with various men until He chose the man Abraham and his descendants, the nation of Israel. In the Gospel period, Israel continued to be at the center of God’s plans and work. In the Acts period, God continued to work with Israel. Yet in the dispensation of grace, all nations are now equal in God’s current work. In the kingdom of God yet future, Israel will again be at the center, but all nations will be blessed through them.

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

How does the truth of the coming Kingdom of God affect us in the dispensation of grace? What difference should the truth of the coming kingdom make in our lives? How does God want us to live in light of the coming kingdom?

PSA232 The Final Stages mp3

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

In this message, we examine the final stages of God’s future plan as outlined in Scripture, particularly in the book of Revelation. These are the thousand-year Parousia of Jesus Christ, the Little Season that follows it, and then the New Heavens and the New Earth. How is the period of Christ’s parousia different from the premillennial kingdom period that precedes it? What takes place in the Little Season? What does the ultimate period of the New Heavens and New Earth look like?

PSA231 The Revolt in Zechariah mp3

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

In this message, we consider the book of Zechariah in a brief outline. It tells us things about Zechariah’s own day, about the coming kingdom of God, but we especially consider its picture of the coming period of the revolt against the kingdom of God, which dominates the end of the book. What does it have to tell us about that coming, climactic period of time?
