[1Pet 5:7] God Hates Worry! Jesus preached against it. Paul preached against it. The whole Bible is violently against worry, because it was designed by the devil. Satan uses worry to produce stress, suffering, and death. Many people act as if worry was an option, as if you are free to worry if you want to. But we are not supposed to worry. Worrying is a sin! Worry is one of many things that the Word of God strictly commands us n...

[VB064 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 4:17 Walk In Purity (Eph 4:17-32) The first part of this chapter described the believer’s relationship to the church. Now Paul deals with the believer's relationship to the world. Certainly we are “in Christ” and a part of the body, but we are also in the world, where there is temptation and corruption. We have a responsibility to witness to the world, but we must walk in purity and not allow it t...

[VB063 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 4:12-16 Ephesians 4:12-16 – Purpose of the Ministry Gifts We see that Jesus gave gifts to His church in Ephesians 4:11, and the following verses tell us the purpose for these gifts. [4:11] And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, Since we are still in the church age, we still have apostles and prophets, along with the evangelists, p...

[Mt. 16:18; Acts 17:19,22] Ekklesia Imagine what it must have been like to live in ancient times, where all the legal and political decisions were made on a hill in the middle of the city. They may have had 30-40 meetings each year. A herald would go through the city announcing the meeting and invite the citizens to come to the hill near the agora, the city’s business district. There were no certain buildings to meet in, it was ...

[Mt. 28:18; Eph. 1:18-23; 2:1-7; 1Cor. 12:12-14,27] Our Authority In Him Matthew 28:18 is another place in the KJV, where “authority” should have been used instead of the word “power.” I thank the Lord for my Greek dictionary. Matthew 28:18 (KJV) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Power: Gk. Exousia is authority. It should read “...all authority is given unto me in hea...

[VB060 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 4:7-11 Believers as Individuals (4:7-11) We have looked at Ephesian chapter 4, verses 4 through 6 and learned about everything we have in common – seven elements of unity centered on the three Persons of the Trinity. Now Paul switches to individuals, and we will see believers as single parts of the body. Paul begins with, “to each one of us,” The gifts for unity in the church are given in verses ...

Verses 4 through 6 are going to tell us everything we have in common – seven elements of unity centered on the three Persons of the Trinity. The main pers...

[VB058 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 4:1-3 Let’s Walk Together (4:1-3) Remember the first half of this letter has taught us who we are and what we have in Christ (1-3). And now Paul shows us in the last half of the letter our response to the teaching, or how to walk in Christ (4-6). This is a step-by-step walk to victory (4:1,17; 5:2,8,15). The Christian life is compared to a walk because it starts with one step of faith, involves pr...

[VB057 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 3:14-21 Paul’s Intercession for the Saints (3:14-21) Remember there are two prayers in Ephesians (here and in 1:15-23), and they complement each other. The first is a prayer for enlightenment; the second is for enablement. Today we are going explore Paul’s second prayer of his letter to the Ephesians. Eph 3:14-21 (NASB) –[14] For this reason I bend my knees before the Father, [15] from whom every...

What Faith Is [Heb. 11:1-3,6; Ps. 33:6,9] Faith, is really misunderstood and there are many strange ideas of what it is. The Bible tells us what faith is, but first, let’s look at some things that faith is not. Faith, for instance, is not positive thinking; that is something quite different. Faith is not following a hunch. Faith is not hoping for the best, hoping that everything will turn out all right. Faith is not a feeling of...

[VB052 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 3:1-6 The Holy Spirit Reveals God’s Hidden Plan The letter to the Ephesians is so loaded with language of our faith, from basic terminology of our becoming a christian, to deep phrases and thoughts of our supernatural experience in the body of Christ. The function of the Church is a complex spiritual power in the earth that must be understood, and today we take another sip of water from Paul’s fir...

[1Cor. 10:13; 1Pet. 5:9; Heb. 10:32; James 1:2] Sneak Attack As you grow in your spiritual walk, you need to know that attacks on your life may begin to escalate. But the good news is that your new growth and your knowledge of God’s Word will help you come through each attack with victory!

[VB049 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 2:11-22 We Are Reconciled – Jesus Removed the Barrier In the first half of this chapter, Paul has been telling us what God has done for sinners in general, now its about Jews and Gentiles in particular. God had made no messianic covenants with the Gentiles, but God had promised the Jews a kingdom. What the Gentiles were (vv.11-12). Eph 2:11-12 (NKJV) –[11] Therefore remember that you, once Genti...

[VB048 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 2:1-10 Chapter 1 emphasized our possessions (riches) in Christ; and we will see that chapter 2 emphasizes our position in Christ. Your position determines your possessions and authority. For example; regardless of where the President of the United States may be physically, his position, where he is seated, (as the man who sits in the White House) – gives him power and authority. So it is with the C...

[VB046 Podcast Notes] Ephesians 1:7-14 Ephesians is the only letter Paul wrote that does not include some sort of correction for the church. Ephesians is power-packed and is the most concentrated teaching of Paul’s writings. Perhaps that is why we are studying the longest run-on sentence in the Bible. In the Greek, chapter 1, verses 3-14 is one sentence. I am attempting to rightly divide it for study purposes. I love to study Pa...
