This morning, Pastor Brett discusses the topics of Calvinism and Arminianism, predestination and foreknowledge. In Romans 8:28-29, Paul writes about “the called”, and we see Biblical examples of predestination for both Calvinism and Arminianism in Exodus 8, where we read about some of Pharaoh’s choices. Were they God’s decisions, or Pharaoh’s?
Tonight, in our through-the-Bible study, we continue to look at Romans 8. Pastor Brett further explains the concepts of predestination and foreknowledge, and how the Lord has a perfect plan for all of our lives.
Our text tonight describes a picture of the throne and what was going on around it. From this somewhat brief passage, we learn a lot about a wide range of topics from decision-making, to the Tribes of Israel, to our purpose in life. There are many rich lessons in tonight’s teaching.
In today’s text, we learn Jesus is described as a stone. We take a look at several passages in scripture that give us deeper insight into the richness of this picture. Will we humble ourselves and be broken before Jesus, or will we harden ourselves and be broken by Him? There are many wonderful applications for us from this passage.
Romans 9 through 11 is a crucial passage regarding the Jews and the plans that the Lord still has for them. In a day and age when Replacement Theology seems to be gaining ground, these chapters are essential for our understanding. We take a deeper look tonight at chapter 9 and the promises God has made to His chosen people.
In Revelation 5, a drama begins to unfold in heaven. John sees a scroll and is distraught over the fact that no one is able to open it. Then the Lamb appears. Our focus tonight is on our Messiah, our Redeemer, the One who is worthy to open the scroll and its seals.
What part does faith play in our lives as believers? In today’s teaching, we spend some time looking at the life of Moses. He provided a great example of what it really means to live by faith. May the Lord reveal to us all some areas of life where our faith can really spring into action in our daily walks.
Romans 9, 10 and 11 delve further into the answer to the question: What must one do to be saved? In Romans 10, we see that Paul talks about the reasons why people reject salvation, the reality of their rejection and the results of their rejection.
Tonight’s passage has to do with the seals of the scroll, which are opened by the Lamb. These seven seals explain some of the key details of end time events. In addition to enhancing our own understanding, tonight’s teaching should serve as a reminder to be sharing the gospel at every opportunity in order to see people spared from these awful events.
