The Holy Spirit at Work

There are two extreme attitudes today regarding the subject of the Holy Spirit. One of those disregards Him almost entirely, substituting a religious ritual or an ecclesiastical machine that functions regardless of any spiritual power. The other attitude places an unwarranted stress on the operation of the Holy Spirit at the expense of the written Word of God and true Christian sobriety. One extreme expressed itself in frigid formalism, the other in fervent fanaticism.

In this course, the Bible is studied to present the truth concerning the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter whom the Father has sent to dwell with us and to be in us (John 14:16).

Judges

The book of Judges records the history of the nation of Israel in the Promised Land from the death of Joshua until just prior to the kingdom being established under King Saul. During this period, the nation failed God repeatedly, prompting Him to allow the pagan people in the land and surrounding areas to oppress them. Whenever Israel cried out to God for help, He would graciously raise up leaders to deliver them from their enemies and a time of peace would ensue—until the next time they failed.

Romans

Countless salvation stories, maybe even your own, have started with truths found in the book of Romans. Perhaps it is because out of all the books of the Bible, Romans provides the fullest explanation of the Gospel. In this letter, Paul helps his readers understand how the Old Testament laws find their fulfillment in Christ, and how all humanity, both Israel and every other nation, is justified by grace through faith. While the greater portion of this epistle is filled with deep truths, it ends in the last several chapters with a call to live “In view of God’s mercy” (Romans 12:1). Through this course, you the student will be reminded of Christ’s great love and be renewed to live for Him.

Joseph: A Life of Virtue

The life of Joseph is a classic Old Testament illustration of the biblical principle that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28). We can rest assured that God allows the trials of life to teach us things we would not otherwise learn. The believer’s life is a probation, not a picnic. During trials, we need to learn to trust God and keep in mind that God’s overall purpose is to conform us into the image of Christ Jesus, His Son (Rom. 8:29).

Discovering Christ in the Psalms

Jesus Christ is the dominant theme of Scripture. He Himself said that when we search the Scriptures, we discover that they testify of Him (John 5:39). A messianic psalm is one of the psalms in the book of Psalms that contains one or more references to God’s Messiah in connection with His ministry as Prophet, His suffering as Priest, or His glory as King.

The psalms covered in this study course are limited to the ones that are quoted directly in the New Testament. May you be richly rewarded in your quest to discover Christ in the Psalms!

Hebrews

Many times it can be difficult to see how the sacrificial system God established in the Old Testament connects with the new covenant of grace Jesus brings in the New Testament. However the letter of Hebrews explains that the sacrificial system of the Old Testament is a picture of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus came to fulfill. Hebrews weaves together these two realities in a profound way that shows the intricacy of God’s plan throughout history. We hope this course will help you understand the letter of Hebrews and the themes in it to grow your faith and encourage your life in Christ.
