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.

Judges (2021)

Judges (2021)

January 2021 - May 2023

Judges is a book that is rarely taught on in any church. This is a tragedy because it is a book for our times. What is impressive about this book is the theme. The last verse in Judges: “In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Judges was in many ways the dark ages of Israel’s history: they rejected the authority of God, they rejected the authority of Scripture, and in its place they substituted their own authority. In other words, instead of looking to God and His Word for absolutes and structuring all their thought under that umbrella they looked to the community, to one another, to themselves as the source of absolute right and wrong.

Passage: Judges 20:12-48
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 9 mins 49 secs
Why did the Israelites lose the first two battles with the tribe of Benjamin when they had gone to God for guidance?

See how they did things differently when they sought God about the third battle and hear what God promised them. Recognize the parallels with our own nation today as most are turning their back on God and His ways.

Passage: Judges 20:1-48
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 41 secs
Israel was in a state of collapse because they had turned their back on God. The attack and murder of the Levite’s concubine stirred the people to action and they mobilized an army. Find out what the tribe of Benjamin did when Israel demanded the ones who had committed this crime be turned over to them. See that they came up with their own solution to the problem instead of seeking God’s perfect solution. Just like the Israelites, we are imploding in our own nation. Be challenged to study the Word of God and walk by means of the Holy Spirit during these days of chaos.

Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 10 secs
What was a concubine in ancient Israel? Listen to this message to learn that this was not part of God’s design but it was a custom of that part of the world. A concubine was a legitimate wife but of a secondary status. Hear an intriguing overview told from the end to the beginning of what events caused an almost near annihilation of the tribe of Benjamin. See the role a horrific gang rape and killing of a Levite’s concubine played in this and be warned that all of these events were caused by a series of bad, immoral decisions.

Passage: Judges 18:1-31
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 42 secs

Do you view God as a good luck charm? Sadly there are people who think like that. Listen to this lesson to hear about an event in Israel when the tribe of Dan were in apostasy. They were homeless because they had not trusted God to take possession of the land He had given them, so they moved in on other people’s homes. See how their actions resulted in apostasy spreading throughout the land. Understand that when this occurs the only way to recover is to turn back to God.

Are there many ways of worship? Listen to this message to learn that God says there is only one way and He sets out the specifics.

During this message Dr. Dean referred to research from Arizona Christian University.
