Psalm 103 1 Jul 9, 17

Psa 103:1-22. This Davidic psalm gives us a basis for praising the Lord. God is the source of all healing. He is the ultimate Arbitrator. Always in control, abounding in compassion & mercy, forgiving, and committed to us—why would we trust in anything else?

Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 10 Jul 16, 17

Jn 21:1-17. Distressed over his denial of the Lord, Peter announces he is going fishing. Jesus is not yet finished with this disciple and restores Peter, asking if he is committed to serving Him—which is to love Him.



Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 9 Jul 16, 17

1 Pet 5:1-4. Shepherding the Flock: the Role of the Pastor. Distinction and function of NT words for "pastor". "Elder" emphasizes authority, "shepherd"—care, and "overseer"— responsibility. The pastor-teacher needs to be model to the flock that God has assigned him, using the LJC as his example.



Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 8 Jul 9, 17

A healthy local assembly is designed to be self-supporting, with members of the church ministering through their spiritual gifts. 1 Pet 5:1-2. Peter exhorts the elders to shepherd God's flock. Using contrasting pairs, he teaches responsibilities and biblical motives for the pastor.



Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 7 Jul 2, 17

Setting the context of 1st Peter: believers are encouraged to endure testing and be obedient. 1 Pe 5:1—addressing the elders/pastors. A look at the word "glory" in the NT in both its temporal and eternal senses. If we endure with Christ, we will share in His glory.



Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 6 June 25, 17

2 Tim 2:14-18. Review of the responsibilities of the pastor and the importance of him teaching the Word of God. Paul commands Timothy that pastors are to be committed to accurately teaching the Word, as if in God's presence. By so doing congregations won't be misguided away from the truth, but unified.




Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 5 June 25, 17

Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 4June 18, 17Eph 4:16. The gift of pastor-teacher incorporates both care for his sheep and communication ability.

Eph 4:16. The gift of pastor-teacher incorporates both care for his sheep and communication ability. When each individual grows spiritually, the church working together, matures itself. Father's Day: the father's role and responsibility as the head of the family.

Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 3 June 18, 17

Eph 4:11-15. The entire congregation is to be brought to maturity and oneness in Christ, which depends upon bels using their spiritual gifts and serving in virtue love. In contrast to being victimized by the cosmic system, our lives should exhibit spiritual integrity.

Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 2 June 11, 17

Communion. The importance of teaching the Word of God in the local assembly. Eph 4:11-13. The pastor trains the saints, equipping them to serve, with the result that the body of Christ is built and matured.

Importance of the Local Church: 2017 Pleroma Bible Church Conference 1 June 11, 17

Pastor Inghram reports on Pleroma's Dedication Conference and recaps his presentation on the importance of the pastor teaching the Bible in the local church. Rejection of the Word of God results in a darkened soul. Rom 1:18ff; Eph 4:11ff.

Daniel before the Lion's Den

Daniel before the Lion's Den 3 Jan 29, 17

Da 2:20-23; 46-49. Dan blooms where he is planted, doing the best he can w/what God has given him. The king desires to reward D; and in humility & grace, D desires to reward his friends who prayed w/him. His honesty, loyalty & selflessness land D in the highest court—where the pressure will be greatest. If you are a spiritual warrior where do you want to be? In the thick of the battle! We should not be thinking of ourselves & our safety, but how we can serve more effectively where God has placed us. Taking no credit for himself, D crafts a prayer of thanksgiving to God, before going to Neb w/the dream. 

Daniel before the Lion's Den 2 Jan 22, 17

Ps 91; Da 2:19, 24-30. God has a plan for your life—are you preparing & positioning yourself daily, w/o setting parameters, so that He can work thru you? Even when given the opportunity before the king, Daniel does not promote himself; but sees himself as a humble tool of God, crediting Him as the One who will reveal the dream. The plan that God has for Daniel's life is not for his glory, but for God's—He is the Hero of the story.

Daniel before the Lion's Den 1 Jan 15, 17

1 Co 10:11; Da 2:1-19. Daniel's Dilemma. D faces threat of execution if he is unable to tell King Neb his dream & interpret it. Rather than panicking or seeking self-preservation, Daniel takes the spiritual approach and chooses to serve the Lord, rather than self. Unable to handle the crisis in the power of the flesh, he and his friends pray, relying on the Lord to help. God answers his prayer and b/c he trusted Him in faithful obedience, God vaults Daniel to the top. There are many opportunities that we have and many blessings that we could have, if we simply said, "I'll give it a try."

Witnessing and Evangelism

Repentance and Sorrow 2 Jan 18, 17

Gk. lupeo- to grieve; metamelomai- to regret; metanoai- a change of mind (trans. "repentance"). Regret & repentance are not synonymous in NT Gk.; regret includes emotion, repent does not. Emotions may or may not accompany repentance. Whether in salvation or confession of sins, feeling sorry is not a requisite; it is Christ's work on the cross that has the merit. In the NT, repentance is sometimes used for change of mind and other times as a synonym for believing. Repentance is not necessary for faith in Christ. Dt 30:2; Mt 3:2; 11:20; Lk 17:3; Ac 2:38; 8:22; 2 Co 7:8f. 

Repentance and Sorrow 1 Jan 4, 17

2 Co 7:1-12. Background to Paul's 3 visits & 4 letters to the Corinthians, including a painful visit and subsequent letter of strong rebuke—a letter which initially caused distress for these believers, but led to correction. Emotion has no merit for either justification or spiritual growth. "Godly sorrow" means to sorrow according to God's will or intent. This produces a change of mind (repentance) which is based upon the mental understanding of the character of God, and in turn leads to spiritual advance.

Usefulness of Older Age Dec 28, 16

5 min. vid on Big Bang theory: Does God Exist? 4 New Arguments (Prageru.com). Ps 71:18—having an impact on future generations. As long as the Lord is preserving our lives, He is going to give us opportunities to serve. We can have an impact even in our infirmities or incapacities. Spiritual maturity and our greatest effectiveness is often not reached until older age. Biblical examples of exceptional effectiveness in older age: Abraham & Sarah, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Miriam, Joshua, Caleb, David, and Daniel. God has numbered our days—Jo 14:5; Ps 139:16.

Witnessing and Evangelism 11 Nov 27, 16

History of Thanksgiving Day. Bridging Questions are designed to build movement from an individual's false beliefs to correct beliefs. Presenting objective and subjective evidences. The goal is to find common ground and remove obstacles so we can present the Gospel and a positive case for Christ.

Witnessing and Evangelism 10 Nov 13, 16

Veteran's Day remembered. Oath of Office Link; 2 Pet 3:1-9; arguing against uniformitarianism. Uncovering Questions: determining why the individual has barriers or objections to moving towards Christ. Differentiating between intellectual, emotional, and volitional reasons for doubting. Seven steps to uncovering hidden barriers.

Witnessing and Evangelism 9 Nov 6, 16

Ps 20:1-9. George Washington��an example for presidents to follow. Illuminating Questions. The goal is to clarify what the individual believes and how they define terms; it is not to prove the other person wrong, but to minimize defensiveness and reverse the burden of proof. When the unbeliever recognizes the cracks in their worldview, they are more open to replacing it.

Witnessing and Evangelism 8 Oct 30, 16

Remembering the Rescue of the Lost Battalion after the Attack of Pearl Harbor. Hearing Questions continued. Listening for discrepancies between belief vs heart longing, belief vs behavior, belief vs belief, and belief vs illogical belief. All people, regardless of religion, share the same sense that there is a God and a desire to know Him. Materialism and success cannot fulfill the longing of the soul.

Witnessing and Evangelism 7 Oct 23, 16

The Role of God the Holy Spirit in Witnessing. Principles on Evangelism: Our Attitude. Listening for Discrepancies Between an Unbeliever's Worldview and their Heart Longing. We should not feel pressured to produce results when witnessing; ultimately G/HS does the work. We are God's instruments empowered by G/HS and we should truly desire to reach the lost.

Witnessing and Evangelism 6 Oct 16, 16

The Goals of Asking Questions and 8 Steps of Personal Evangelism. Rather than forcing the truth on an unbeliever, the aim is to use questions, which allow them to discover contradictions in their thinking. Once we understand their perspective and uncover their barriers to belief, we can build a bridge to the Gospel.

Witnessing and Evangelism 5 Oct 9, 16

The process of personal evangelism and principles from Jn 4:4ff. As Jesus did with the woman at the well, we want to ask non-threatening questions that lead others to the truth, allowing them to surface uncertainties of their perspective. Passages covered where Jesus taught and answered questions with questions.

Witnessing and Evangelism 4 Oct 2, 16

Reasons why witnessing & evangelism are important to believers and personal evangelism reviewed. Strategies for personal evangelism, and planning & preparation discussed. Asking questions to the unbeliever can help them see their need and build a bridge to the truth.

Witnessing and Evangelism 3 Sep 25, 16

Do we need to have a gift for evangelism in order do it? God gives us the information and opportunity for witnessing; we simply need to be prepared to guide the conversation to spiritual matters. Personal evangelism means that we care for others' eternal future. It is often a process, not just reaping.

Witnessing and Evangelism 2 Sep 18, 16

Constitution Day remembered. Passages covered on our witnessing responsibilities;  1 Cor 6:18ff; 2 Cor 5:14ff.  We belong to the Lord and as His bondservants we should seek to be obedient. Believers have been designated as Christ's ambassadors with a message of reconciliation.

Witnessing and Evangelism 1 Sep 11, 16

Christ's mission to seek and save the lost is a responsibility passed onto Church Age believers. Giving the gospel to a stranger is one of the purest forms of impersonal love and something we should desire to do. Jn 4:5-15. Jesus starts a conversation in a culturally unacceptable situation with a woman at the well.

Points & Passages on Angels continued. God does not provide salvation for angels. They live in heaven, have regular access to earth, and interact with humans. Serving as intercessors between God and mankind, angels teach, administer justice, and minister to both nations and individuals.

Angelic Conflict 2 Jan 17, 16

What does the Bible teach us about angels? These spirit beings, often represented by fire, may be invisible to us but are always there. Not only do these highly intelligent creatures continually observe us, they also serve as our attendants—protecting and guarding us. Highly intelligent and innumerable, their main purpose is to serve God.

Angelic Conflict 1 Jan 10, 16

Intro into the Angelic Realm. The human race is engulfed in a great unseen war—a universal conflict comprised of elect angels following God's plan, and fallen angels carrying out the bidding of Satan. G/HS helps us in our battle and restrains the activity of Satan.
