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...

SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Mar 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mar 16:16  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mar 16:17  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mar 16:18  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mar 16:19  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. Mar 16:20  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.   Most...

GROWING IN GODLY WISDOM AND JUDGMENT

1Th 4:9  But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another. 1Th 4:10  And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;   This is the 2nd part of the earlier study entitled “Judging the affairs of this life righteously as a son;” and in the first study we looked at how the Father would have His sons to judge the things that he may face in this world in a godly manner by proving “what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” in all of the circumstances of his life. However, in this study, we are going to look at how we are taught to “increase” in our wisdom and judgment by allowing ourselves to...

“PUT ON CHARITY, WHICH IS THE BOND OF PERFECTNESS”

Col 3:12  Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Col 3:13  Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. Col 3:14  And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Col 3:16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.   In today’s society the term “charity” pales in stark contrast to the way that God...

THE PROVING AND REPROVING BENEFIT OF THE WORD OF GOD

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.   Our Father designed the word of truth to make a positive impact in the son’s life as he uses the doctrine as a tool to “prove” the things that God values and esteems by the things of this world that ourselves, and man has been “conformed” unto, and as such, His word is also designed to “reprove” the son when he comes across these vital decisions that may come up in his life where he is ‘beseeched’ by God the...

ARE YOU ZEALOUSLY AFFECTED AS A SON?

Gal 4:16  Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? Gal 4:17  They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. Gal 4:18  But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. Gal 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,   The words “affect” and “effect” sound very similar, but each have different meanings; the word “affect” means to change, or make an impact upon someone or something. The word “effect” is the product of an “affect,” meaning when something has an “affect” (something that is introduced to something or someone that is different from the norm) upon someone or something, there...

GODLY LOVE: UNDERSTANDING HOW GOD LOVES

Rom 12:3  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.   When our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ went to the cross and paid our sin debt for us He displayed the ultimate example of sacrifice, selflessness, and Godly love. This Godly example we are given in our scriptures to show the saints the love of Christ; and not only are we given this unselfish act of Godly love to learn by, but we are also shown the love of the Father, and ‘how’ He loves His creation. In verse 1 of chapter 12 we are reminded of all the “mercies” that He has given us as “sons,” and here in verse 3 we are asked to change...

GODLY LOVE: UNDERSTANDING WHAT GOD LOVES

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.   One of the most remarkable features of our sonship education begins in Romans chapter 12, and it is at this point that we come to understand the love, trust, responsibility, wisdom, and design given unto us by our Father. And right at the outset we see these truths within the first two verses alone. The Apostle Paul through the Father ‘beseeches’ the saints by the “mercies of God;” in other words, by all the...
