Between the Testaments

Between the Testaments Commentary

The New Testament begins with the Romans ruling Palestine. The throne is occupied by an Idumaean king named Herod. At the end of the Old Testament, the Persian Empire ruled Palestine. The throne of Israel was occupied by a Jewish king named Zerubbabel. The time between the Old Testament and New Testaments is about four hundred (400) years, 445 B.C. to 4 B.C.
These four hundred (400) years can be divided into four (4) groups, known as the Persian Period, the Greek Period, the Maccabean Period, and the Roman Period.

Bible Doctrines

Bible Doctrines Commentary

In light of the above Scriptures, we who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit will have an intense desire to please Christ in whatever way we can, i.e. the fullness of the Spirit complements, completes, or fills up the saving and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Those who claim the fullness of the Spirit, yet live a life contrary to the Spirit of holiness, are deceived and untruthful. Those who display spiritual gifts, miracles, spectacular signs or inspiring oratory, yet lack true faith, love and righteousness, are operating not by the Holy Spirit but by an unholy spirit not from God.

Foundations of Faith Learning

Foundations of Faith Commentary

As we enter into the study of Foundations of Faith – Studies in Learning, let us first do a study on the “Introduction of Faith.” Faith is absolutely necessary in studying the Word of God. Hebrews 11:6 states that “…without faith it is impossible to please God…” When we come to God, we must believe that He is and that He rewards them, which diligently seek Him. As students of the Bible, when we read and search the Scriptures, we must do it in faith. Faith allows the anointing to flow and revelation knowledge to come forth. Faith at this point causes the dry ink on the page we are reading to come alive, leap off the page into our hearts. Let us enter into our study on the faith.

Introduction to Bible Theology I

Introduction to Bible Theology I Commentary

The Bible is the most important book in the world and should be every Christian’s textbook. The study of the Scripture is a lifetime project and is proven to be the most productively profitable study any person can possibly make. Dr. C. I. Scofield (major contributor to the Scofield Bible) said, “Many Christians freely confess that they find the study of the Bible weary work. More find it so who are ashamed to make the confession.” It is believed that this basic study will help bring weary work into the realm of exciting endeavor.

Introduction to Bible Theology II

Introduction to Bible Theology II Commentary

The purpose of this Commentary is to give you an overview of the Bible and to introduce you to the study of Theology. We will pick up where we left off in Introduction to Bible Theology I, with outlines of the New Testament.

Life Management God's Way

Life Management God's Way Commentary

This will be the beginning of an exciting journey towards our destiny, a journey that could take us to many nations around the world. These decisions could enable us to meet people who can help change us and bring new adventure and
excitement into our lives.
There is power in making a decision. Everything that happens in our lives, including success or failure, begins with a decision. Our destiny is shaped by our decisions. The decisions we make today will determine our tomorrows, the future. For example, what we are today is the result of our past.

New Testament Survey

New Testament Survey Commentary

This is a brief synopsis of inter-Testamental history or the four hundred (400) silent years from Malachi to Matthew as it concerns the Jews. No study of the Bible is complete that does not take into consideration the events of the four hundred (400) years which elapsed between the Old and New Testaments. During this time no inspired writer, historian, or prophet appeared. Unbroken by revelation, this period is called the “period of silence.” The last prophetic voice of the Old Testament was that of Malachi, and the first in the New Testament that of John the Baptist. During this period of time, Judea was subject to Persia until about 330 B.C. at which time the empire of Greece was established as a world power under Alexander. In 167 B.C., under the Maccabees, we see Jewish independence. But, in 63 B.C., Judea came under Roman sway, and was subject to Rome at the time of the birth of Christ.

Old Testament Men and Women of Faith

Old Testament Men and Women of Faith Commentary

This course has as its primary focus the relationship God used in the days of Old Testament History to bring man back into obedience. God is and was and always will be full of faith. He used His faith as the instrument of the creative process through which man came into existence. Faith is the spiritual life-line through which man receives the goodness of God. Without faith, man in his fallen state, has no hope of a return, of receiving the promises or the covenants of God.

Old Testament Survey I

Old Testament Survey I Commentary

Both the Old and New Testaments make up the inspired Scriptures. The New Testament was never intended to replace the Old Testament. Instead, the New Testament was given to complement the Old Testament, to complete the story.

Old Testament Survey II

Old Testament Survey II Commentary

Previously we studied in Old Testament I the beginnings of human history, and the God Who controls it. There are key revelations in the Old Testament, such as to give sense to the New Testament events such as the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ in the Gospels, and the judgments of Revelation. The Old Testament is extremely valuable to us as far as beginnings are concerned, giving us understanding of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. The Divine revelation of the Old Testament is invaluable to us today.

Praise Life

Praise Life Commentary

God’s infallible Word contains everything we need to become and do what He has ordained for each one of us. We can accomplish this once we have been reborn spiritually and have given authority to Holy Spirit to bring us into the realm of His purpose for us. There are emphases placed by God on certain aspects of His provision for a fruitful and victorious life here on earth. Receiving Christ is, of course, of utmost importance. Faith is very critical. Repentance and forgiveness keep us under the blood of Jesus.

Prayer I Types and Necessity

Prayer I Types and Necessity Commentary

It must be remembered that begging is not acting or praying in faith. God moves on your behalf when we ask believing that He has already answered. Begging comes from the soul realm that can only hope that God will answer. True faith in prayer can see the answer even before the answer can be seen.
