  4. Ephesians 5:1-21; Be Imitators of God, Part 4 by Karl Kemp  
    The apostle Paul exhorts us to walk as wise people and redeem the time (to use our limited time for God and the things of God), since the days are evil, and to be filled with the Spirit on a continuous basis, which includes walking in, by, and after the Spirit on a continuous basis.

  5. Ephesians 5:1-21; Be Imitators of God, Part 3 by Karl Kemp  
    Is God's love incompatible with His wrath and hell? After finishing the lengthy digression where we discuss Col. 3:5-9, we discuss Eph. 5:8-13 in this verse-by-verse study of Eph. 5:1-21.

  6. Ephesians 5:1-21; Be Imitators of God, Part 2 by Karl Kemp  
    Here in Part 2 most of the discussion deals with the need for Christians to take seriously, very seriously, the warnings in Eph. 5:3-7 (and similar warnings throughout the New Testament) about those who had become true Christians not inheriting the kingdom of God, but rather His wrath. It isn't God's will for any true Christian to turn from God to live in sin, but the New Testament and church history show that it can, and does, take place.

  7. Ephesians 5:1-21; Be Imitators of God, Part 1 (of 4 Parts) by Karl Kemp  
    Ephesians 5:1-21 are strong on the requirement for Christians to be imitators of God and walk in His righteousness and holiness with the victory over all sin through His saving grace in Christ, and they warn us that "no immoral or impure pure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God [the Father]."

  18. The Unbelief of Assumption by Steve Countryman  
    Assumption leads to unbelief. When you rationalize what you feel is truth verses what God says is truth then you are walking by assumption instead of walking by faith. That is what Martha did here. Because Jesus didn't come when the messenger found Him, she assumed Jesus didn't or wouldn't heal her brother. Though she knew who Jesus is and that Jesus healed people everywhere He went, she flat ignored her own two statements of faith and fell into unbelief of assumption.

  21. 1 Peter 4:1-6; 5:10 and Victory Over Sin, Part 2 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss 1 Peter 4:6 here in Part 2. This verse has been interpreted quite a few different ways, but the verse is rather easy to understand once we see that the apostle Peter was speaking of spiritual death, not physical death. We also discuss 1 Peter 5:10. The translation of the NASB communicates the wrong idea that God will strengthen, etc. us "after [we] have suffered for a little while." God wants to strengthen us now!

  22. 1 Peter 4:1-6; 5:10 and Victory Over Sin, Part 1 (of 2 Parts) by Karl Kemp  
    1 Peter 4:1-6 (along with 1 Peter 1:13-25 and 2:24, 25; and many other passages in the New Testament) demonstrate that Christians are called, enabled, required, and privileged to be dead to sin and to walk in the righteousness and holiness of God through the atoning death (and resurrection) of the Lord Jesus Christ. This includes the requirement (and privilege) to walk by the Spirit on a continuous basis, who enables us to live in accordance with the will of God.

    What do you do when faced with a challenging situation?

  25. Baptism in the Holy Spirit Is for New Christians by Max Aplin  
    Baptism in the Holy Spirit is intended for Christians from the time that they first become believers. The idea, found in some Pentecostal circles, that a Christian should aspire to reach a level of spirituality where they are ready for baptism in the Spirit, is a mistake. If someone is a Christian, then he or she is ready for Spirit baptism.

  26. Is Matt. 24 Only For The Jews? by Mick Alexander  
    When will Jesus return? Jesus said, "Watch out that no one deceives you." (Matt. 24:4)

  27. Insisting That the Gospels Are Works of Pure History Causes Problems by Max Aplin  
    Modern Western Christians often simply assume that the four Gospels are historical in every detail. However, although they are basically historical, they were never intended to be works of pure history. Insisting that they are completely historical leads to dishonest use of the Bible, encourages extremely unnatural interpretations of biblical passages, and puts people off the Christian faith.

  28. God's Wrath In The Day Of The Lord by Mick Alexander  
    "The day of the Lord is coming a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger." (Isa. 13:9)

  29. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 11 by Karl Kemp  
    Much of the discussion here in Part 11 is devoted to God's creation of man ("Let Us [us] make man in Our [our] image" [Gen. 1:26]) and God's plans for man (believers), including His ultimate plans. We also discuss the original vegetarian diet for man and animals and the seventh day (Gen. 2:1-3).

  30. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 10 by Karl Kemp  
    We continue the discussion of the firmament that God created on the second day, above which He placed the large amounts of excess water that was on the earth (Gen. 1:2) when His recreation began. And we discuss God's creation of the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day (Gen. 1:14-19).
