Romans (2010)

Passage: Romans 11:5-11
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 3 secs
"Lonely, I'm so lonely." Is this the refrain you're singing when you look around at all the people who reject God in the world today? Listen to this lesson to learn about a time when most of the Jewish people were heading down a path of self-destruction and laughing at God's messengers. At the same time there was a remnant of those who decided to prepare their hearts to follow Him. Even though they were ignorant of many of the commandments, God dealt with them graciously. Learn the difference between grace and works and listen to other examples of the Jewish remnant.

Passage: 1 Samuel 21:10-15 & Psalm 56
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 5 secs
Have you ever been in what looked like a hopeless situation with no way out? Listen to this lesson to hear about a time when David was pressed on all sides but he turned to God and cried out to be rescued. He trusted God’s mercy instead of giving in to his fears. See that in our prayers we need to remind God what we know about Him and how He has promised to help us. Understand it’s not that our fears go away. We can learn to live above fear and let God’s Word change our focus. In times like this turn to the Psalms for maximum peace and joy.

Passage: 1 Samuel 22:1 & Psalm 57:2-11
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 32 secs

Over and over in the Bible we are told to trust God. How do we do that? Listen to this lesson to hear four things we need to do to start down the path of relying on God for everything. See that we must switch our thinking from focusing on our problems to God’s loving kindnesses by reading in the Psalms about God’s wonderful works as expressed through His names. When we truly trust God we can rest and relax because we know that God has a plan and He’s carrying it out and we have nothing to fear.

During this class Dr. Dean mentioned a new book authored by Dr. Thomas Ice called The Case for Zionism: Why Christians Should Support Israel.

Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 8 secs
When we’re in a period of deep mourning we should turn to Psalms for ways to pray and seek comfort from God. Listen to this lesson to hear one of David’s psalms that demonstrates this. Focusing on God’s truth gives us the stability we desperately need in difficult times. Find out that we need to remember God has poured out His grace on people from the beginning. This requires us to have learned the content of the Word of God before troubles come.

Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 47 secs
What does it mean to resist the devil? Listen to this lesson to learn what we are to do when we face adversity and suffering in our life. Find out that we need to have learned the Word of God so we are not caught off guard and that we are to walk in humility, submitting to God. Understand that the problems in our life are tests and they are designed to give us an opportunity to trust God. Be learning about God and His plans now so when we face a disaster we are prepared to stand our ground.

Passage: Psalm 89:38-52
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 40 secs
How honest are you when you pray? Listen to this lesson to hear about a psalmist who expresses his frustration over what is happening and asks God if He’s going to keep His promises. He wonders why the nation is under divine discipline and points out that they are a reproach to God’s name. As he expresses his unhappiness, he petitions God to change the circumstances. See how he recovers and expresses once more his understanding of God’s Word. When we are in a situation like that, we need to remember to trust God and His promises, which can be hindered by our disobedience but are never cancelled.
