“YE HAVE OBEYED FROM THE HEART THAT FORM OF DOCTRINE”

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. Rom 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.   Most people that call themselves Christians seem to have no problem ‘not knowing,’ they are content with not knowing the things contained in God’s word, they say things like “well I guess God has a plan,” or “there’s a...

WHY DOES IT SAY “HEAVEN” SINGULAR IN GENESIS 1:1 INSTEAD OF “HEAVENS?”

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Gen 1:4  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:5  And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Gen 1:6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. Gen 1:7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was...

THE MOLTEN CALF AND GOD CONSUMING ISRAEL

Exo 32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. Exo 32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. Exo 32:5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD. Exo 32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. Exo 32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted...

THE DOCTRINE OF THE “10,OOO INSTUCTORS IN CHRIST”

1Co 4:10  We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised. 1Co 4:11  Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace; 1Co 4:12  And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: 1Co 4:13  Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. 1Co 4:14  I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 1Co 4:15  For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.   Most, if not...

THE TREE OF GOOD AND EVIL AND THE GAP THEORY

What is the purpose behind “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” and why the penalty of death in connection with eating of it?   Gen 2:15  And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.     My understanding is that the implementation of the plan of evil took place in the heavens first among the angelic realm and then upon the earth. The fact that the plan of evil was already in existence by the sixth day of creation is evident to me by the fact...

HAS GOD’S KINGDOM ALWAYS EXISTED/WHY BRING IT TO EARTH?

1Ki 6:11  And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying, 1Ki 6:12  Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father: 1Ki 6:13  And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.   First off, it is my understanding that God’s kingdom has not always existed. Now let me explain what I mean by that so that what I am saying is not misunderstood. Sometimes when people talk about God’s kingdom they are simply referring to His sovereignty; i.e., His right to do whatever He wants seeing that He is God. In other words they speak of His kingdom in the sense...

THE FATHER’S EXHORTATIONS FOR THE SONSHIP CURRICULUM

Pro 1:1  The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; Pro 1:2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; Pro 1:3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; Pro 1:4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. Pro 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: Pro 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.     You are right in recognizing that the father’s exhortations are primarily exhortations pertaining to the education that the...

THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?

Rev 21:9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,   If I understand your question properly you want me to tell you how I deal with the verses in Paul’s epistles that seem to indicate that he identifies the church of today as “the bride of Christ.” This question is frequently asked and I usually respond by first of all pointing out that there is no question as to who and what the “bride of Christ” is, because the Bible states it in no uncertain...

“I WILL NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE”

Rev 3:1  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Rev 3:2  Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Rev 3:3  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Rev 3:4  Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. Rev 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white...
