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.

Series: Balfour Declaration
Duration: 52 mins 3 secs

Who owns the legal title deed to the most hotly contested piece of real estate in the world? Again and again we are told that Israel “illegally occupies” this territory and that their communities in Judea and Samaria “violate international law.” But is this true? This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration in England, the first time in history that a nation recognized the right of the Jewish people to their historic homeland. But what legal impact did this declaration have?

In this lesson you will understand what happens when history is ignored. Discover that at the end of World War I the Ottoman Empire broke up. New nations were formed which had never before existed. Learn how these new borders and nations came into existence. In England Arthur Balfour had already seen his declaration seeking a homeland for Jews become policy. But this declaration had no legal force.

In this study Dr. Dean will explain how the British government’s policy became international law and established the legal foundations for Israel’s title to all of the land west of the Jordan River. It is not Israel, but the Palestinians who are the illegal occupiers who violate international law.

This session was presented at the 2017 Israel Today Symposium at Temple Shalom, Dallas, Texas.

Passage: Romans 1:26-32
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 59 mins 58 secs
Decisions and ideas have consequences. When a person, a tribe, or a culture rejects God, the consequences are devastating. Romans 1:18-23 clearly teaches that all human beings are religious: they all know God exists. Those who reject the God of the Bible always substitute something or someone else to worship. The result is that God then gives us over to our desires. The three stages of divine judgment described in this chapter show the cultural degradation that ensues from the rejection of God.
