Acts Commentary

Acts surpasses nearly all the New Testament Books in length. It is an inseparable link between the Gospels and the Epistles. Therefore, without Acts, the New Testament would be incomplete. Originally, Luke’s two writings, his Gospel account and Acts, most likely were circulated as one work. The narrative of Acts was the natural sequel to the story of Luke’s Gospel account. When John’s record was published as the final Gospel at the end of the first century, Luke’s Gospel was weaned from Acts and linked with the other three Gospels to become known corporately as “The Gospels”. At about the same time, Paul’s writings were being collected and identified under one title, “The Apostle”. Thus, seventeen New Testament Books were brought together and reduced to two units.

Bible Prophecy

Bible Prophecy Commentary

In this course, we seek to introduce the student to God’s real conversation with man. God, as Mother and Father to His children, provides for their needs in this life. He also speaks words of life to them that they might meet the future in His success and victory.
God, in His omniscience, has given in advance, words of wisdom, words of warning, words of judgment, words of liberty, words of comfort, words of power, and words of victory. By word and prophecy, God has provided for Kingdom living under the shadow of His loving security, protection, wisdom, and strength. It is His desire that man might walk through his earthly life undamaged spiritually by the ravages of the enemy, Satan.

Blood Covenant

Blood Covenant Commentary

There is a blood line that stretches throughout the entire breadth of inspired scripture. From outside the gates of Eden in Genesis 4 to inside the gates of New Jerusalem in Revelations 21:22, the Bible is filled with the importance of the blood with regard to salvation. The blood of Jesus is very dear to Believers everywhere. Yet most Believers have a very limited understanding of all that has been accomplished by the blood of Jesus. This course enhances the reader’s understanding and appreciation for the Blood of Jesus. We see that Jesus’ blood is of a higher type than common blood. Because of His better blood, we have a better covenant established upon better promises. As you read and study this work, ask God for a greater understanding and appreciation for the precious blood of Jesus.

Childhood Christian Education

Childhood Christian Education Commentary

A trouble as deep and pervasive as to threaten the future of our nation has gripped the United States of America, according to documents drawn up at the White House Conference on Children, late in 1970. That trouble is the national neglect of children and those primarily engaged in their care — America’s parents. Americans may idolize their children and imitate their teenagers, but evidently they do not place them first in their affections.


Homiletics Commentary

Sermons need themes for the same reason that buildings need blueprints, a story needs a plot, a picture needs a center of interest, or a sales talk needs a proposition. It is lamentable that many sermons lack a clear theme that can be followed. A theme-less sermon is like a flood, it spreads in all directions. A sermon with a theme is like a river that flows within its banks in a specific direction. There is value in the river to a man. Floods are wild, destructive, and seldom of any value. A train that does not stay on the track cannot go anywhere, no matter how much power the engine has. A sermon may show a great display
of steam, but it will never reach its destination without a theme.

New Testament Church History

New Testament Church History Commentary

The Christian Church, which includes the past, present and the Church to come, consists of all who believe in Jesus of Nazareth as the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God; who have accepted Him as their personal Savior from sin, and who obey Him as the Christ, the Head of the Kingdom of God on this earth. He is the head, we are the body. Therefore, the Christian Church consists of a corporate body of people, not just a physical structure where people gather.

Old Testament Studies I

Old Testament Studies 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 Studies II

Old Testament Studies II Commentary

Joshua is the Book about a land and a people. It is about the act of conquering and the victory of the Israelites in the Land of Canaan. The land is an inheritance promised by God, waiting to be occupied. The people are the elect nation of God, facing human obstacles in the way of taking the land. The obstacles are the occasion for battle, a holy war, designed by God to oust the idolatrous, polytheistic people, believers in many gods, and corrupt enemies, from the land. It is for this that Joshua is called the Book of Conquest.

Preparation for Ministry I

Preparation for Ministry I Commentary

This word armorbearer is something virtually unknown to the Body of Christ. God is stirring up men today to be called to be the position of armorbearers to the church leaders. What is an armorbearer and what does he do? We see in the Old Testament that the armorbearer was a person highly responsible, being a protector and servant, carrying his master’s shield into battle. Seeing to the safety of his leader, the armorbearer had an awesome responsibility. The armorbearer had an order to his life that revolved around his leader. God intends for us to have our priorities in order, so our prayer should be that God will touch our hearts and minds and do that for each of us.

Preparation for Ministry II

Preparation for Ministry II Commentary

God sometimes asks us to do something with which we argue. Obedience to God at first would make it easier on us. He knows what He is doing and we do not. Many, even up to 99% of Christians in each church have experienced the anointing of the Ministry of Helps, but somehow they were frightened by that anointing, and they ran away.

Systematic Theology I

Systematic Theology I Commentary

The intent of this course in Theology, (the study of God Himself), is to give us a deeper and more intimate understanding of the One True God. It will help us to understand the personage of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Trinity in unity, yet distinguishable by their specific attributes. This course will help us to understand the volume of God’s knowledge because His being, His knowing, and His doing is all there is. His existence extends beyond all that man knows. Through His Word, God shares a portion about Himself with us.

Systematic Theology II

Systematic Theology II Commentary

The Bible is as specific as God obviously chooses to be about the origin or creation of the universe. Apparently God desires that man’s understanding about his beginning in the earth be understood spiritually rather than with point by point natural and physical explanation (Ge.1:26-27; 2:7). Theories abound in the attempt to prove that man is simply a mediate creation that he evolved from original creatures formed in the beginning or out of the original immediate creative act. Scripturally and spiritually, these explanations, theories, of man’s origin, a higher form of life with soul and spirit arising from a lower form, are unfounded. God actually created man last in the Genesis account, in a different way. God’s fingerprint is on man.
