Christ, Our Pattern, Helper, & Friend

Bible Studies

 

How alone should the Christian walk?

"He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked." 1Jo_2:6. (See Col_2:6.) 

 

What mind should be in us?

 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." Phi_2:5.

NOTE: The mind of Christ was characterized by humility (verses 6-8); dependence upon God (Joh_5:19, Joh_5:30); a determination to do only the Father's will (Joh_5:30; Joh_6:38); thoughtfulness of others (Act_10:38); and a willingness to sacrifice and suffer, and even to die, for the good of others (2Co_8:9; Rom_5:6-8; 1Pe_2:24).

 

While yet but a child, what example of obedience to parents did He present to us?

 "And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them." Luk_2:51. 

 

How are His childhood and youth described? 

"And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." Verse 52.

The Sabbath Changed

Bible Studies
    
     The greatest event of all times and all ages, an event that scientists are confused about (in regards to its origin and reason), is the creation of the world and man. The Bible records this massive phenomenon and tells us that God is responsible for its origin and its purpose. In the book of Genesis we discover that this event is the result of the wonderful working of God in the natural world. At the close of the creation week God set a Divine example for mankind in relation to His act of Creative Power. The bible says; “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.” Genesis 2:1, 2 Later on in the scripture narrative we find a Divine commandment respecting God’s Holy Seventh-Day Sabbath to Israel in specific, and later to all mankind in general. (See Ex. 20:8-11) Since God’s Sabbath commandment is so plain, why do so many who believe in the Bible keep an entirely different day. Today we find more people claiming to be God’s chosen and elect and yet they seem to totally disregard His “sign” of loyalty and oneness.
 
“Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.” Ezek 20:12
 
“And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.” Ezek 20:20
 
Many sincere Christians believe and teach the change of the Sabbath by Christ when He was resurrected and the establishment of the new Sabbath, Sunday. We need to study to see if there was a change and is there a divine command for it. How does the Bible warn us of this change concerning the Sabbath day?
·         Ps. 119:126-128
·         Ps 111:7, 8

Acceptance With God

Bible Studies

Who are accepted of God?

"In every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him." Act_10:35. "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?" Gen_4:7.

Since by nature man cannot "work righteousness," the carnal mind being "enmity against God" (Rom_8:7), what transformation is necessary?

    By what agency is the new birth produced?

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Joh_3:6. "It is the Spirit that quickeneth." Joh_6:63. "If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not of His." Rom_8:9.

How precious is forgiveness to the burdened soul at conversion! Is this rich boon conferred as a thing that is due, or as a pure act of grace or unmerited favor?

  "In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." Eph_1:7. "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, and am no more worthy to be called thy son." Luk_15:18, Luk_15:19.

 

NOTE: This is true of justification (Rom_4:1-5) and of every blessing that comes to us through faith. Even faith as a mental action does not merit anything: all the merit is in Christ, whom we receive by faith.

The Bible Sabbath, Which Day Is It?

Bible Studies

 

 Editor's Note: Because of the wide-spread misunderstanding about the seventh-day sabbath being Sunday, the first day of the week, I thought it would be important for us to consider what the bible says about this subject. The bible evidence is very clear! No where in the bible do we find any hint of the sabbath being the first day of the week, sunday. In fact, over and over in the old and new testament the bible refers to the seventh-day (saturday) as the sabbath. Because of the length of this bible study we will brake it up into several parts.

 

 

The Sabbath "The Sabbath is a golden clasp that unites God and His people." T., v. 6, p. 351.

 

  1. Gen. 2:3. Instituted by God.
  2. Gen. 2:2, 3; Ex. 20:11. The Sabbath is a memorial of creation. E. 251.

  4. Mark 2:27. It was made for man.
  5. Gen. 2:3. God blessed the Sabbath.
  6. Ex. 31:15. Sanctified the Sabbath.
  7. Ex. 20:11. Hallowed the Sabbath.
  8. Lev. 19:30. Commands us to keep the Sabbath.
  9. Ex. 20:8. Commands us to recognize the sanctity of the Sabbath. T., v. 6, pp. 349-352.
  10. Ex. 16:23, 25, 26. A threefold miracle marked the Sabbath during the wilderness wanderings. P.P. 296.

The Faith of Jesus

Bible Studies

      

     "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement." Rom 5:10, 11

 

“The faith of Jesus has been overlooked and treated in an indifferent, careless manner. It has not occupied the prominent position in which it was revealed to John. Faith in Christ as the sinner's only hope has been largely left out, not only of the discourses given but of the religious experience of very many who claim to believe the third angel's message.” {3SM 168.2}

   1.       How are we made enemies to God?

  • ·         Thoughts Rom. 8:7,8
  • ·         Actions/Deeds/Sins Isa. 59:1,2

   2.       What does it mean to be “reconciled”?

  • ·         Pardon Isa. 55:7

·         Reconciliation 2 Cor. 5:18-21

3.       What does “reconciliation” bring back to man’s Christian experience?

·         Peace Col. 1:20, 21

·         Righteousness 2 Cor. 5:21

·         All Things (Physical, Mental, Spiritual) Rom. 8:32

“Through Christ, restoration as well as reconciliation is provided for man. The gulf that was made by sin has been spanned by the cross of Calvary. A full, complete ransom has been paid by Jesus, by virtue of which the sinner is pardoned, and the justice of the law is maintained. All who believe that Christ is the atoning sacrifice may come and receive pardon for their sins; for through the merit of Christ, communication has been opened between God and man. God can accept me as His child, and I can claim Him and rejoice in Him as my loving Father. We must center our hopes of heaven upon Christ alone, because He is our substitute and surety.”  {1SM 363.2} 

4.       What is required for reconciliation?

·         (Unconditional) Love Rom. 5:8

·         Blood Rom. 5:10, Lev. 6:30

5.       How do we experience “reconciliation”?

·         Communication Isa. 1:18

·         Repentance Acts 20:20, 21

·         Faith Acts 20:20, 21

“Repentance is no less the gift of God than are pardon and justification, and it cannot be experienced except as it is given to the soul by Christ. If we are drawn to Christ, it is through His power and virtue. The grace of contrition comes through Him, and from Him comes justification.  {FLB 110.3} 

     “Who is desirous of becoming truly repentant? What must he do? He must come to Jesus, just as he is, without delay. He must believe that the word of Christ is true, and, believing the promise, ask, that he may receive. When sincere desire prompts men to pray, they will not pray in vain. The Lord will fulfill His word, and will give the Holy Spirit to lead to repentance. . . . With prayer he [the repentant sinner] will mingle faith, and not only believe in but obey the precepts of the law. . . . He will renounce all habits and associations
