Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Passage: 1 Peter 3:19 & Isaiah 14
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 27 secs
Hear a summary of the speakers and their messages at the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Conference held in Dallas, Texas this week. Then continue with the study of the origin of Satan and evil in this world. In Isaiah 14 learn about “Lucifer” who has fallen from Heaven after arrogantly asserting his desire to ascend to Heaven. Then hear how his end will take place in the “Day of the Lord”. Find out how we as Christians have a role to play as witnesses to this great conflict of the ages.

Passage: 1 Peter
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 57 secs
If you have an inquiring mind, you’ll enjoy hearing many vital questions answered about 1 Peter. Listen to this lesson to learn whom the intended audience for this book was: Gentiles or Jews. Several supporting reasons for the majority view that it was addressed to Gentiles are discussed but stronger arguments are convincing in the belief that it was intended for Jews, including terminology and the quoting of Old Testament passages. Another question concerns where Peter was when he wrote this book and historical Babylon seems to be the most likely location. Next, we ask, why was this epistle written? Based on the number of times the word suffering and words for adversity are used, it becomes obvious that the audience for the book were undergoing persecution and troubles in their life. Look forward to the encouragement and strength we can derive for our own lives from a study of this book.
