II Thessalonians 2

Thursday, June 16th, 2011


June 16, 2011
Out of the 774,747 words in the Bible – perhaps no single word of God’s Word is as comforting as the Greek word “maranatha” meaning “the lord is coming.” II Thessalonians 2 deals with that very concept – the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Specifically, we will see the addressing of false teachings that his Second Coming has already happened, what the Day of the Lord will be and how The Hope gives Christians comfort today.

As Christians today, prayer plays an integral part of living and with all the benefits promised to us in God’s Word in prayer, we too should be people of prayer.

II John

Thursday, February 10th, 2011


February 10, 2011

If you’ve ever wanted to have a glimpse back into the early Church, II John provides such a view. Here, in our study, we see that the 1st Century – much like today’s Church – had problems. To us, this can be encouraging because God did so much with those Believers then inspite of their imperfections, God can do that with us too, in our day.
Whether this epistle is written to an actual lady or if that “elect lady” is a codename for a Church – we find in our examination of II John that this study holds tremendous understanding and application to our lives as 21st Century Believers.

Outline to II John:
In Verses 1-4 we see an elect lady commended.
In verses 5-6 we see an elect lady commanded.
In verses 7-11 we see an elect lady cautioned.
In verses 12-13 we see an elect lady comforted.

Verses:
Revelation 3:20
II John 1:1-2
I Peter 1:23-25
II John 1:3-4
Ephesians 4:15
II John 1:5-6
Galatians 5:14
II John 1:7 – (see NIV or ESV versions for better rendering)
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
II John 1:8
I Corinthians 3:11-16
II John 1:9
Romans 10:9-10
John 15:1-7
II John 1:10-11
John 4:6
II John 1:12-13

Titus 2-3

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

In this second installment in our teaching segment on Titus we continue to see the theme of the book: truth matches with godliness and sound doctrine goes hand in hand with good works.

Titus in chapter 2 is instructed to teach sound doctrine so God subsequently describes both what is to be taught as a part of sound doctrine and what the corresponding action will be to sound doctrine. There is practical learning for every type of Christian person. We then read a most crucial biblical truth: our salvation is not dependent upon our good works, but good works is a response to what God so freely gave us in Christ.

In conclusion, it is important to remember is book is not just Paul writing to Titus, but is God speaking to us.

Verses:
Titus 2:1
II Timothy 4:3
Titus 2:2-3
Revelation 12:10 – devil referred to as the accuser.
Titus 2:4-5
Ephesians 5:21-22
Titus 2:6-7 – “sincerity” is literally in the Greek, “without wax.”
Exodus 25:8-9
Hebrews 8:5
John 1:14
Titus 2:8-15
Jeremiah 1:6-10
Psalm 51:7-8 – bones being broken a shepherding term in which a shepherd would break a wayward lambs leg and care for it while the leg healed. After mending, the lamb would cling close to the shepherd’s side.
Titus 3:1-4
John 3:16
Titus 3:5-15
