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.

In a collapsing world filled with violence and chaos comes a little known, sorrowful woman who humbles herself before God and trusts in Him for help. Listen to this lesson to hear the story of how one woman and the son who was the answer to her prayer changed the course of history for Israel. See how God is always in control and honors humility and faith. Find out how Samuel stood at the crossroads of one of his country’s darkest hours and set in motion their deliverance from the Philistines. Hear the striking comparisons between Samuel and Moses and how each was used by God for seemingly insurmountable tasks. Instead of succumbing to hopelessness in the face of all that is happening in our country today, turn to God for the answers that are always available.

Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 13 secs
What this country needs are some good leaders to turn it around. Wrong! Listen to this lesson to see that what any country needs are people who turn to God and His Word for guidance. Hear about Israel under the judges which had reached a low ebb and had no respect for God or His Law. See how when a nation rejects objective truth it becomes subjective and each one only does what is right in his own eyes. Note the contrast between Samson and Samuel. Find out about a grandson of Moses who was a failure. Hear a story of decadence and immorality about a woman who was raped and murdered, leading to almost the complete destruction of one of the twelve tribes. Instead of longing for a leader to magically turn things around, put your trust in God and share the gospel with others.

Passage: 1 Samuel
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 11 secs
What can we learn from history to help us solve the enormous problems we face in our country today? Listen to this lesson to learn that only when a period of history is based on revelation from God can it be instructive. Follow a timeline of the history of the nation, Israel, and see that they cycled from periods of spiritual truth to disobedience to God where they deteriorated into hopelessness, economic downturn, and despair. Learn that when they turned back and walked in obedience to God they were blessed once more. So it is for us. When we let things spiral out of control through disregard for God’s Word, we need to turn back and walk in the Lord to have stability in our lives.

Passage: 1 Samuel 1:1-31:13
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 58 mins 43 secs
Attention all history buffs! Get ready to begin a study of ancient history that addresses challenging events in a nation in chaos that would be right at home on our nightly news. Learn about Samuel who was a prophet, priest, and judge and why he cannot be the sole author of this book. Understand the difficulty of dating when the book was written and follow a timeline of the chronology of events that take place in it. Learn that this book was written for the Jews in Solomon’s generation as a warning to teach them the importance of obedience to God to bring prosperity, success, and victory over enemies. Accept that the message for today is that the people of our nation must either have a massive return to positive volition to God’s Word or we will feel the force of a repressive government.

Passage: Acts 13:13-38
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 49 secs
Paul is giving the gospel to Jews and God-fearing Gentiles in the local synagogue. Paul addresses them within the framework of their familiar as he anchors his message deeply within scripture, stressing their understanding of forgiveness of sin and justification. If it were only that easy to approach an unbeliever today, one who had such a deep knowledge of scripture. This is highly unlikely. Our approach must confront the realities of their position. The optimal starting point is for us to be profoundly familiar with the Word and to have a developed relationship with our audience. Paul will show us how to deal with a variety of circumstances so that we will have a pattern from which to launch our own approach and the assurance that rugged roadblocks aren’t necessarily terminal.
