Hey Elaine,

We had a wee snowstorm over the weekend that knocked out our power and telephone.

We got the power back... but no telephone, so no Internet.

I made a special trip to the library so I can send you this invitation!

-------

Jesus came to destroy death and to deliver those who were bound by the fear of death (Heb. 2).

"Death and hell" are not part of God's wonderful plan, no more than sickness, suffering, pain, and sorry are part of His plan - all of these things are the consequences of sin and satan, and all of them will be removed in the New Heaven and Earth.

But RIGHT NOW, in Christ, God has already shown His intention: to destroy death and hell and to set the captives free.

When that happens, Scripture declares that ALL will be submitted to Christ and "God will be ALL IN ALL."

What a great day that will be!

The Old Testament even has a word for it: JUBILEE!

In the year of JUBILEE, All debts are forgiven, all slaves are released, and everything lost is restored again.

Obviously, we aren't there yet.

But Love never fails, and God will continue to work until:

All enemies are defeated...

All obstacles are removed...

All hindrances are eliminated...

EVERY knee bows...

EVERY tongue confesses...

And Jesus is truly LORD OF ALL!

God is able and willing.

The question is: do we believe Him?

Join us this week as we consider the Scriptures together:

Adjustment to the Government of the Holy Spirit
​​​​​​​by Chip Brogden
The purpose of revelation is not to SUBSTANTIATE your illusions, but to ELIMINATE them. 
 
Now I just love that word adjustment. Adjustment. I know it is uncomfortable and disconcerting to have the sense that everything you thought you knew is wrong (or at best, incomplete), and God shows you a different way, a more excellent way, and usually that “way” is not a way that you would have chosen or come to on your own. It is not a process that anyone particularly enjoys going through.

Even so, we are all in need of a major adjustment...

Hey Elaine,

One of the most powerful verses of Scripture is something few people want to talk about.

"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive" (1 Cor. 15:22).

Depending on how you read this, you can either respond to it as:

"I know that already."

Or...

"What an awesomely terrific promise that blows my mind!"

I choose the latter. :-)

But I'm a little bit biased because I've studied this chapter already in preparation for what I will share with you this week.

I invite you to come experience how GOOD the GOOD NEWS really is!

One Flock, One Shepherd
By Chip Brogden
We must see before God that He has already made us One Flock under One Shepherd. This is not some future event, but a spiritual reality, waiting for us to enter into.
 
Jesus plainly said, “I am the Good Shepherd.” In John 10 He tells us the difference between the Good Shepherd and the hireling. He even says that ALL who came before Him were thieves and robbers. That’s why God sent the Son to Shepherd the flock for Him. No one else is worthy. Apart from Him we are all hirelings. We just love ourselves too much.

In the same way that no one is worthy to open the seal and read the contents of the scroll except for Christ, so no one is worthy to shepherd the flock of God but Christ. The Lord declared that He would tend the flock Himself, and so He has done so and is doing so through the Lord Jesus Christ...

Hey Elaine,

I'm really excited to resume our online Bible study this week.

The more I study First and Second Corinthians, the more I see that things haven't changed that much in the last 2,000 years.

I mean they had problems and controversies, just like we do today.

Speaking in tongues is one of those controversies - some say it's the devil, some say it's the Holy Spirit.

Huh? That's a big discrepancy, isn't it?

Then there's the role of women in the church - a controversy still alive after two millennia.

This week we'll see what Scripture says, what it means, and how it applies to us today.

Being Thankful in a World of Entitlement
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​by Chip Brogden
When we stop to reflect upon all that we have in Christ, it is natural and normal to respond with praise and thanks to God.
 
Scripture tells us that in the last days, perilous times will come as “men will become lovers of their own selves… unthankful” (2 Tim. 3:2). Unthankfulness is a symptom of this modern age. People in more prosperous areas of the world are not particularly thankful for their prosperity. Ironically, they have grown accustomed to thinking that the world (or God) owes them even more – a better job, a free or low-cost education, a nicer home, affordable health care, or an even higher standard of living. This entitlement mentality is unhealthy and leads to chronic discontentment and dissatisfaction.

On the other hand, followers of Jesus recognize that we are entitled to nothing. We also recognize that whatever we do have is the result of God’s blessing: “What do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” (I Cor. 4:7). It is impossible for a person to be thankful and to be prideful at the same time...

All the Parables of Jesus: Prophetic Declarations of Truth
Audio Teaching Series 
by Chip Brogden
The parables of Jesus are not just quaint little stories; they are prophetic declarations of spiritual truth, and they give us invaluable insight into what I call the Irresistible Kingdom of God.
 
“For people who are lost, or who have turned away from religion, this teaching is so full of hope, light, and inspiration to get on that path of relationship with Jesus. One thing is needful! But for the religious who listened in…there was some teeth gnashing I’m sure. :-)” – C.C., Canada
 
There are ten messages (nearly 12 hours)
of teaching in this series!

Hey Elaine,

This week we come to that great love chapter - First Corinthians 13.

Karla and I were discussing this and she observed how all the attributes of love that Paul lists in this chapter - patience, kindness, not envious, not boastful, etc. - are all based on character and behavior; none of them are based on emotion.

Emotions and feelings are up, down, and all around.

Emotions and feelings cannot endure anything for very long.

This love of God is deeper, spiritual, and more tenacious that emotions and feelings.

It is also deeper than logic - love can make you do some crazy, irrational things!

Then Paul makes the astonishing statement that nothing matters without love.

Faith?

Spiritual gifts?

Ministries and good works?

Great teachings and sermons?

Perfect doctrines and belief systems?

Without love they are nothing - WE are nothing.

We intellectually nod our head and say Amen.

But do we really, truly get it?

If we did, things would be very different.

We'll dig deeply into this in our next study...

The Most Basic Lesson
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​by Chip Brogden
“I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing.”
(Romans 7:18a)
​​​​​​​
It is a great day for the Lord when a disciple of Jesus learns this most basic lesson: that in “me”, in myself, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. 
 
We who have received the Lord as Savior have come to this knowledge of ourselves at least once in our lives. There came a day when we despaired of saving ourselves, and instead of clinging to our righteousness, we confessed our sins and admitted our need for a Savior. At that moment, Christ accepted us as His disciples. Confessing our sinfulness did not hinder us from entering the Kingdom; on the contrary, it opened the door for us to go in. The self-righteous, on the other hand, are disqualified by their own good works. How differently the Lord judges things...

Hey Elaine,

As Paul tried to answer the question of "spiritual gifts," he was concerned that the Corinthians would not be ignorant about how they were supposed to work.

The "ignorance" he refers to has to do with the fact that they were in a pagan society surrounded by "dumb idols."

"Dumb" in this case means "not speaking."

Relating to a living God Who speaks and expresses Himself is a major step up from a religion of "dumb idols."

Likewise, the belief that God once spoke, then someone wrote His words down in the Bible, and then God stopped speaking, is a major step backwards.

Paul didn't want them to be ignorant, but today I'm afraid too many remain ignorant.

Hopefully we can educate ourselves through two major revelations connected with spiritual gifts:

(1) The One Body of Christ, and

(2) Love never fails.

These two revelations must be a starting point for any discussion about the spiritual gifts.

Join us this week as we dig more deeply into how this applies to us today...

To Whom Am I Sent?
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
by Chip Brogden
If we are primarily motivated by what other people want, expect, and need then we will be tempted to stay longer than we should stay, or say more than we ought to say. 

When it comes to Christian work and ministry, many workers, ministries and churches are motivated by a perceived NEED. We feel there is a need for something, whether it be a specific ministry, a missionary outreach, a new church, or a Bible study; and so we rise up to meet that need. However, this manner of undertaking spiritual work is purely a human concept. It is of the flesh; it is of the world. It is the same basis upon which a business discovers a need and then creates a product or service to meet that need. The Kingdom of God, however, does not conduct itself according to the principles of business, economics, marketing, or salesmanship.

But the question is not, “Who has a need?” but rather, “To whom am I sent?” Although the two sound very similar, in actual experience the difference is like day and night...

Hey Elaine,
 
At one time, for a man to wear a hat was a custom.
 
God supposedly spoke to man wearing a hat one day and told him that if he were to "pray without ceasing" then he should go without a hat.
 
I guess this is important to God(?).
 
Anyway. he stopped wearing a hat, and all the people with hats mocked him.
 
He took it as a sign that he must be "suffering for Jesus."
 
Really?
 
It's just confusing traditions, customs, and commands.
 
Do you know the difference?
 
You may think you do.
 
But in actual practice, most folks treat them all the same.
 
I mean, mentally we can see the difference.
 
But emotionally we get all bent out of shape over traditions and customs, treating them with the same reverence and respect as a command.
 
Just because something used to be a certain way, or has always been done a certain way, doesn't mean we have to follow it.
 
It also doesn't mean we can ditch it!
 
It just means we need to know the difference so that, whether we do it or ditch it, we are doing it for the right reasons.
 
When you don't know the difference, you start elevating your traditions to the level of commands.
 
And - without fail - those "commands" turn legalistic and get directed towards others.
 
Like, "God commands us to go to church on Sunday!"
 
No, He doesn't - it's a tradition and a custom, but it's not a command.
 
There are maybe 1,000+ things like this.
 
We won't cover them all in this teaching... but we'll see what Scripture has to say about it this week:

Prevalence, Prominence, and Preeminence
By Chip Brogden
“Preeminence” is a lofty word. It means the highest place of ascendency, above all, over all, surpassing all, to the point that nothing and no one else can even come close.

According to Scripture, God’s ultimate intention and purpose is “that in all things [Christ] must have preeminence” (Col. 1:18) – not just in you and me, not just in the Ekklesia, but in all creation. And, if we trace the history of God’s dealings with man throughout the Bible, we see that God has been steadily and surely working towards this goal. “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). He MUST increase, therefore, He WILL increase, and He IS increasing. Likewise, you MUST decrease, therefore you WILL decrease, and you ARE decreasing. This is not a thing to be frightened over. With less of me, there is more of Him. With more of Him, there is less of me. It is a wonderful thing!

The problem, of course, is that religion has taught us something completely different...

Hey Elaine,

The Society of Perpetually-Offended Persons isn't a real club, but it has real members.

The world is filled with people always taking offense.

And the "Christian world" is no better - in many ways, they are the ones most easily offended.

That's a great context for this week's Bible study.

God does not want us to be an offense to others.

Yet Jesus offended everyone - the Pharisees, the people in His hometown, even His disciples.

Sometimes even *I* offend people (I know, hard to believe, right?)

So we don't want to cause unnecessary offense.

But we also have to realize that we live in a world where people are going to be offended no matter what.

And the Truth (if when spoken in Love) is going to offend.

So we'll dig into the ins and outs of "offense" - causing offense and being offended - in this week's online Bible study:

It's free to attend, but your gift (of any amount) makes it possible.

Thank you for supporting Christ-centered teaching!

The Remnant Principle
By Chip Brogden
In our time the Lord is working with a Remnant and is raising up Overcomers to represent His interests in the earth, a people who are in this world but not of this world.

We must understand that all the forces of darkness are going to focus themselves against this Remnant in an attempt to shut up the Testimony once and for all. This, truly, is a momentous and critical period. More than Israel is at stake: the very fulfillment of God’s Purpose and Plan for redemption, the actual coming of the Messiah to establish His Kingdom, hangs in the balance.

Now who would ever believe that with this much at stake the first battle to be fought will be over a thing so insignificant as what to eat? Who would ever guess that the very fate of mankind rested on something as simple as food. But I tell you that most of the people failed in this very first test, this very small test, and immediately disqualified themselves. 

I pray the Lord will open our eyes to see the principle here!

Hey Elaine,

An entitlement mentality insists on having its "rights."

As an example from tonight's study, Paul discusses what apostles are rightfully entitled to - money!

Appealing to Scripture, to the words of Jesus, and to common sense, Paul says he has a right to expect financial support because: "The Lord has commanded that those who preach the Gospel should live from the Gospel."

But then...

He turns around and says he will not insist upon his rights.

Paul had a day job - making tents - while he preached the Gospel.

What's more amazing?

That ministers are entitled to be supported by the people they minister to?

Or that Paul would freely give up that entitlement - and still have a good attitude about it?

Join us tonight and let's explore these things (and much more) together...

Hey Elaine,

The famous "love chapter" (1 Cor. 13) is only the culmination of something Paul starts talking about much earlier in his letter.

He's trying to get the Corinthians to stop thinking about their own needs, wants, and concerns.

He's trying to get them to love, cherish, and edify one another as ONE BODY.

See, all their troubles really were the result of self-seeking.

Love is the answer!

But love is easy to talk about and hard to demonstrate.

So Paul gives them an example from his own life.

His example helps us to not only better understand the apostolic calling, but also, to better see the heart of a servant at work.

And with a servant's heart of love, it's amazing how problems work themselves out!

With a servant's heart, Paul knew how to handle the divisions among them.

With a servant's heart, Paul knew how to deal with "sin in the camp."

With a servant's heart, Paul knew how to settle questions about marriage and food sacrificed to idols and speaking in tongues.

It's so simple you wonder how we might have missed it!

So don't miss this opportunity to take a closer look...

Your Key to Personal Revival
By Chip Brogden
If the Ekklesia is living and abiding in Christ, this eliminates the need for revival!

What is revival? Well, it’s a Latin word that means “to make alive again”. It means something has died and we are going to revive it. That is revival. But we have already seen that when we abide in Christ we share in His Life. The Ekklesia is living because Christ lives. And so the Ekklesia has no need of revival, because it shares in the life of the Lord.

Now see, we try to take that concept of “revival” and we apply it to things that are dead, things that are outside of the Ekklesia – our church buildings, our religious programs, our church services, our membership – and we hope that through “revival” we are going to increase our ministry, enlarge our church, get more people saved, or whatever the goal is. But my point is that the Ekklesia does not need revival. You are trying to raise something from the dead with revival, but the Ekklesia is living.

The Ekklesia is growing spiritually. It is expanding. How is it growing? How is it expanding? Numerically? Well, perhaps; but the real measure of growth is not in terms of numbers or dollars...
