The Jews, The Gentiles, and The Church

People have the confusion, wrong teaching, and doctrine of the Bible because they fail to properly make a distinction between the three key terms commonly found throughout the scriptures. These are the Jews (or referred interchangeably as the nation of Israel), the Gentiles, and the church, as recorded in [1 Corinthians 10:31-32].  Our lesson tonight aims to provide a basic and foundational knowledge of these terms. 1 Corinthians 10:31  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 18]

Following last week, we will look closely at the story of Jesus’s healing a woman and Jairus’s daughter, from a prophetic and biblical perspective. Suppose you carefully observe the scripture starting from Genesis 12, which is the call of Abraham up until the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ. In that case, God was dealing primarily with the nation of Israel. God promised them with a piece of land from the Nile river to the Euphrates river, long life, and prosperity in…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 17]

Last week we read the scripture of the scene when the Lord Jesus Christ encountered a man possessed with an unclean spirit. Eventually, the power of darkness is no match with the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ can still save any sinners tonight if they put their faith in Him. The death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is the good news that we are to have it ready to share with others. Do you remember…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 16]

The first section of chapter 5 starts with the Lord Jesus Christ facing a man possessed by an unclean spirit. We will begin with verse 1. Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. At the end of chapter 4, we learned that the Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples were traveling on a ship. There was a great storm, and the waves hit the ship. The Lord Jesus Christ…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 15]

Good evening everyone. Tonight, we continue our study together in the Book of Mark and chapter 4. We looked at the parable of a sower weeks ago. What we learned is we are to be a sower. We are to keep sowing the seed, which is the word of God. It is a biblical model when it comes to public evangelism. We will never know which ground where the seed will land. It is a blessing that sometimes we get…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 14]

Good evening everyone. Welcome to a midweek service. Two weeks ago, we looked at a parable of a sower. The Lord Jesus Christ used a parable to teach a spiritual application. To understand a parable that He taught, we need to observe the word written in the Bible. God would like us to know the truth. He is the truth. He promised to preserve the truth. He did. A saved believer is to be a sower. We are to spread…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 13]

Good evening everyone. Tonight, we are studying together the Book of Mark and chapter 4. Last week, we had a quick look at the parable of a sower. Our aim tonight is to unpack it. The Lord Jesus Christ used a parable to teach spiritual application. An illustration is an excellent teaching tool when it comes to spiritual matters. Before we begin the lesson, let us first pray and ask the Lord to bless His word tonight. We will begin…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 12]

Good evening everyone. Welcome to a midweek service. Last week we studied one of the debated topics in the Bible on the blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. A person is in danger of eternal damnation if he keeps rejecting the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. However, such a condition can be changed if he repents and believes the gospel that Christ died for his sin, was buried and rose again the third day. Only then can he receive the…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 11]

Good evening everyone. Last week we looked at the scriptures in the Old Testament concerning God’s promise made exclusively to the nation of Israel related to their physical health and well-being. That blessing is tied with the nation’s obedience to the commandment of the Lord. The nation of Israel will always be a God-chosen nation. The Lord is not done with the Israelites.  On the contrary, saved believers of the local New Testament church are promised with something much better than physical well-being.…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 10]

Good evening everyone. Tonight, we are still studying together the Book of Mark and chapter three. Last week we saw the scene when the Lord Jesus Christ healed the man who had a withered hand. That man acted by faith in response to the Lord’s instruction. Salvation is still available today for people if they just do what the Bible says. …Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved. [Acts 16:31]. Tonight, we will see the Lord…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 9]

Good evening everyone. Last week we finished chapter two. The last section of chapter two showed us the scene when the Pharisees accused the Lord Jesus Christ of violating the law on the sabbath day. We also looked at the scripture concerning the sabbath day. It was the law given to Moses and applied to the nation of Israel. God instituted the sabbath as a day of rest for the nation of Israel. The sabbath day requires that they shall…

The Book of Mark [Lesson 8]

Good evening everyone. Tonight, we will be back to a verse by verse study with the Book of Mark. The last time we studied this book together was at a Sunday School in March, I believe. I see the need to do a quick review for your benefit. When you read the Book of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, you will see different key theme of each book representing the Lord Jesus Christ. The Book of Matthew represents the Lord…
