Description : The word Disciple in Greek is transliterated mathetes (literally, the learning one) and is derived from the verb manthano which means “to learn”. It means “one who learns instruction from another‟, or a disciple is likened to an apprentice who learns from his master tradesman. Thus, a disciple is a person that not only gains knowledge from the teacher but also acts upon it. A disciple therefore follows and a disciple learns from the Teacher. The disciple never replaces the one true Teacher, or takes the role of the teacher. Jesus remains our Teacher and our Lord. This study guide explores what it really means to be a disciple, within the context of the Great Commission of Matthew 28.

Description : In this guide Stephen E. Fowl introduces students to both theological fruit and critical issues of the letter to the Ephesians. On the theological front, Fowl shows how Ephesians offers an unparalleled cosmic vision of the significance of the death and resurrection of Jesus, of the role of heavenly powers in the universe, and of how the community of Christians is to engage with those powers. Fowl also opens up the major identity questions Ephesians shows existed for early Christians: how to conceive the relationship of Gentiles with the Jews from among whom their faith emerged, and how to live as a Christian within households ordered on patriarchal lines while not capitulating to patriarchy. On the critical front, Fowl provides an introduction to the key critical questions and issues, such as whether this letter was actually written to a church in Ephesus, and whether Paul the apostle was indeed the author of the letter. Yet, whilst there are demanding linguistic, historical and cultural questions to be answered, Fowl is careful to point out that this should not be done at the expense of reading the text closely and appreciating its meaning and message.

Description : CULTIVATING THE CHRIST, Ancestors of Jesus. Ancestors of Jesus. Introduction to the book, Cultivating the Christ. Downloadable Here. There are many names in this book as we trace the lineage of Jesus Christ from the beginnings of Adam and Eve, all the way to his earthly mother, Mary. The only name that is important to remember, however is the one we center our life around, that being Jesus. Jesus Christ, our Savior is the only name that matters! The Great I Am. With that being said, we will focus on Genesis 3, and how God’s prophecy of the seed of the woman will produce a son who will deliver a death blow to the Devil. He will be the salvation of all humanity. Realizing that God could have crushed the Devil with one Divine command, it is a mystery to consider why he chose to involve us, flawed humans, as participating characters in his Master plan. It’s as if God wanted us, his Creation, to act out the solutions to the problems our sins created, learning along the way. God, being the Creator of the Masterpiece play, orchestrated the acts and scenes to draw us closer to Him through identifying with the leading men and women of the timeline of humanity. An underlying theme of this study is how God uses the most unlikely, and even the most unworthy people to accomplish His goals. We will see how the people God chooses to be in the lineage of the promised Messiah, our savior Jesus Christ, are unexpected and often misunderstood. Yet, when you examine God’s Word and attempt to piece together how and why these individuals were chosen, the misunderstood will become understood. We will see how Jesus Christ’s human lineage is composed of men and women who are all sinners, and are broken individuals. Yet, they are all heroes. They are heroes because they had faith in God. As we read-through this study and delve into the Bible, we will start to understand why God chose each one of them to be in Jesus’ family tree. We will study the people who God has chosen to be in the human lineage of Jesus. In doing so, unique characteristics of these individuals will be uncovered, as well as common themes among them. Interestingly, as we read God’s Holy Word, we will also see God insert himself into the Masterpiece story to save the day, and redeem flawed humanity. Sometimes the Lord will make cameo appearances, other times He may be disguised and serve as a messenger. Other times, He might be working quietly behind the scenes. A question we may have is why did it take God so long to send the Messiah, Jesus Christ to save humanity? Over three-thousand-plus years elapsed between the original sin committed by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and the birth of Jesus. Realizing God can do anything in a blink of his Divine eye, we have to wonder what took Him so long? One only has to realize that we live in His “God-space”, where the time it takes between His promises and His fulfillment of His promises fits within His time-frame, not ours. That’s why God is such a mystery. This book explores the people God has chosen to be in Jesus’ lineage, who living in this God-space, endured the trials of everyday life and emerged victorious due to their faith and trust in the Lord. This study exemplifies how God uses the most ordinary, unexpected people who are misfits and outcasts as deemed by society, to ultimately be part of His Master Plan to save His creation, humanity. How undeserving we all may be, but isn’t wonderful to be loved by a God who has such amazing grace and mercy? Also, we will discover through studying God’s Word that as is demonstrated in the Bible book-after- book, the Old Testament continuously has important road signs leading to, and pointing directly to Jesus. As we read through and study the stories of Jesus’ ancestors in the Old Testament, we will examine the meanings behind them and look at supporting scripture, which are like enormous, flashing road signs leading us directly on the path to Christ. Cultivating the Roots of Christ We know that Jesus is the Christ, and is the Son of God, but what about Jesus’ human lineage? Jesus was born to a virgin human woman, Mary, and we are told in scripture and therefore believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh (John1: 1,14-18). Why did God choose to reveal himself to us as a human? In the Old Testament, He spoke through messengers, such as angels or prophets. He also appeared in abstract forms such as clouds of smoke or fire. Why did He choose to finally become flesh and walk the earth as a man? It seems that He became human, in order to be able to better communicate with us. He not only masterfully communicated with humanity through His Word, but needed to reach us through being physically present. God needed to use our language, and our culture of the day, to solidify our understanding of what He, the Almighty, was trying to communicate. Therefore, it is important when reading the Bible that we have insight into the culture of the times, so that we can better understand what God is trying to tell us. In other words, context is extremely important. We need to understand the culture of the day so we can put things into context. Only then can we thoroughly comprehend His meaning. Throughout this book, I have tried to include information that will help put the beautiful stories of God’s word into context, so that we can better understand what He is trying to convey to us. Jesus’ ancestors; Who were these people? ~ Two disparate Genealogies of Jesus ~ Jews kept extensive, very complete genealogies in order to establish and record peoples’ heritage. This important documentation was known to be kept in the Archives building in Jerusalem, and also was well documented in the Hebrew Bible for important figures of the faith. A person’s inheritance, legitimacy and rights, and even legal rights to the throne depended on a person’s heritage. The Jewish culture, being very legalistic, kept detailed accounts of people’s ancestors. Ancient genealogies were therefore very important documentation and were held safely in the Archives building in Jerusalem, along with public registers and bonds taken by money-lenders. The bonds were proof, which allowed the recovery of debts. The genealogies validated many things such as royalty and social status, and inheritance rights to property. With that being said, there are actually two genealogies for Jesus found in the New Testament. They are written in the Gospels of Luke (3:23-38) and of Matthew (1:1-17). Interestingly, the names are the same in both accounts through King David and Bathsheba, but differ somewhat after these two individuals. Pearl: Both genealogies for Jesus written in the New Testament are the same through King David and his wife, Bathsheba. How are they different? The two genealogies written in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew differ in several ways: ò Luke wrote a descending list, starting with Jesus and going all the way back to the first man, Adam. ò Matthew on the other hand wrote an ascending list, starting with Abraham and ending with Jesus. ò Comparison of the names in the genealogies of the lists from Luke and Matthew reveals that the two diverge after King David. ò The names from Abraham to David are the same in both lists. ò After David, the names in the lists are different except they converge on two names, beingZerubbabel and Shealtiel, which are listed in both Luke and Matthew. o Zerubbabel led the first group of Israelites given permission to return to Israel from the Babylonian exile ò Matthew’s lineage contains Jechoniah, whose line was cursed (Jeremiah 22:30, 2 Kings 24:8-9)~The hallmark in the difference between the two genealogies is:~ ò In Luke’s account, David and Bathsheba’s son Nathan continues the lineage to Jesus. ò In Matthew’s list, Solomon, who is also the son of David and Bathsheba, is noted to have been the ancestor of Jesus.Biblical scholars have tried to surmise why the names in the lists are not identical after David, and various reasons have been given. Some include: ò Matthew and Luke were writing to different audiences o Matthew wrote to a Jewish audience, tracing Jesus’ lineage to Abraham, to emphasize his Jewish heritage § Emphasized the importance of Jesus’ ancestry being intertwined with the Covenants God made with Israel § To prove Jesus was a true Israelite, and the rightful King of Israel § Referred to Jesus as the son of David, and the son of Abraham As the son of David, Jesus was a Messiah with a royal lineage o Jesus is the rightful legal heir to the covenant promises associatedwith the Davidic throne God’s covenant with Abraham established Israel as a chosen people, andalso affirmed that the whole world would be blessed through his line (Genesis 12:1-3; 22:18)o Jesus is the rightful legal heir to the covenant promises related to the Abrahamic seed and land Matthew took a legalistic view o To prove to the Jews that Jesus was the promised Messiahò Luke traced Jesus’ descent from a biological view to Adam o Emphasized that the Jesus is the fulfillment of the hopes of all people§ Acts 17:26 o The Good News of the Gospels was meant for Gentiles and Jews o Luke wrote to a Gentile audience§ He emphasized that Jesus is the Savior of the whole world, not just IsraelThere are many reasons that have been given as to why ancient genealogies differ, but perhaps another logical reason can be drawn by reading the comments of Rabbis in the Midrash concerning documentation of the lineage of King David in 1 Chronicles. The Rabbis noted that often there were instances of people being called by two different names. o These names were often copied from different historical documents. o Some names might be missing from one document, yet found in another. o Therefore, the ancient chronicler used multiple documents which varied slightly to complement each other to compile a complete list of ancestors. o This could lead to some names being different when the complete list was generated. o Many of the names could have been lost during the Babylonian exile o Often times, a father may actually be a grandfather. o Generations may have been skipped leading to confusion among the names. Another reason the genealogies may not be identical is that often the writer does not list all of the individuals in the family, only key names. An author may select different names that they may have considered to be important. An older reason used by biblical scholars for why the two genealogies differ, is that Matthew traced Joseph’s ancestry, while Luke traced Mary’s ancestry. This theory does not hold up well, as Matthew lists Mary in his account while Luke does not. The most commonly accepted theory among biblical scholars for accepting why the names in the two genealogies differ from David to Jesus is that: ò Matthew traces the line of royal succession o From King David through King Solomon ò Luke traces the lineage through actual physical descent o From King David through Nathan o Nathan was a little known son of David and Bathsheba, who never assumed kingship o Luke emphasizes the virgin birth (Luke 1:34-35; 3:23) Other reasons cited for differences later in the accounts of Matthew and Luke are the possibilities of Levirate marriage, or adoption. Both would be done to secure heirs for a father or a widowed wife, who did not have sons to assume the role as heir and head of the family line. Important to consider for the names post-King David being different is that the Kingdom of Israel came to an end in 722 BC, when Assyria conquered the Northern Kingdom (Israel). The ten tribes of Israel were exiled to provinces of the Assyrian empire, and records and recognition of the tribes disappeared. Likewise, the Kingdom of Judah (The Southern Kingdom) came to an end in 586 BC when King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia conquered Jerusalem, destroyed the first Holy Temple, and took the Israelites into captivity (2 Kings 25). This was the end of the dynasty of kings of the family of David, and many records of heritage, including the tribes of Israel, were destroyed. As time passed, only a small number of families knew which tribe their forefathers were from. Whatever the reason for the disparity, the important thing to remember is that both genealogies presented by Luke and Matthew agree that Jesus is the ‘son of David’ (Luke 3:31; Matt 1:6, Revelation 22:16), and both arrive at the same name, our Savior, Jesus Christ. As Jesus said of himself, as the Divine author of Revelation through his angel and through John to His churches, Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” Jesus is both David’s ‘son’ and his Lord, and the ruler arising from Israel to conquer the nations (Numbers 24:17, Isa 11:1-5,10, Mark 12:35-37). The Listing of Women in Jewish genealogies Ancient Hebrew genealogies are patriarchal in content, as hierarchal and tribal identity is passed on from the father. For this reason Jewish genealogies rarely include women. Matthew’s account of the genealogy of Jesus is unique, as he included many of the women God chose to be in Jesus’ family tree. This is appropriate, as we know that Jesus is the Son of God, conceived from the seed of a woman. Genesis 3:15 (KJV) “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Fitting with God’s prophecy in Genesis 3:15, and the New Testament accounts in the gospels, we know that Jesus came to earth as God in the flesh. Matthew lists five women in the ancestry of Jesus. Luke, however does not include women in his genealogy of Jesus. Of the five women listed in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus, only Mary comes in the lineage after David. The other three are documented ancestors of David, and the fourth is David’s wife, Bathsheba. The naming of women in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus is unusual, but even more unusual is that many of the women listed in Matthew’s account are foreigners, or have questionable past histories. Or both. The five women listed in Matthew 1, that are in the direct line to Jesus Christ have one significant thing in common. That being that they are all unlikely people to be in the Holy family tree. These five women have come from various backgrounds ranging from being Gentiles from pagan cultures, were broken and sinful, or were from very poor, humble beginnings. For instance, In Matthew’s genealogy, we see five very unlikely women in the line of Judah leading to Jesus, including: ò Ruth, who was a Moabite (from Moab who the people of Israel did not care for, to say the least) ò Tamar who had a deceptive affair, and was originally from Canaan ò Rahab who was a prostitute, and a Canaanite living in Jericho ò Bathsheba who was a seduced woman ò Mary who was a humble, peasant teenager. These women, due to their heritage and/or unlikely character, vividly illustrate that imperfect, unexpected people show up in the genealogy of Jesus! These imperfect people serve as the explanation point in God’s masterful Word, as all of these women fit beautifully into God’s Master Plan of demonstrating how His Love is inclusive of all humanity. A reminder of how God uses the most unexpected people to show His Glory was written by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1: 28-31: “Consider your calling brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being may boast in the presence of God. And because of Him, you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us, wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that as it is written. Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” Although there are many names listed in Jesus’ family tree, my aim in this particular teaching of Jesus’ genealogy is not to necessarily give a detailed account of every person listed. This actually is not possible, as Jesus’ ancestors after the exile to Babylonia, exist in name only. For the complete list of these names, I refer you to the Bible, as well as an excellent reference I have cited at the end of this book. In this book, my aim is to focus on key characters who are Jesus’ ancestors who have been described in God’s Word. With the intent to explore them in detail and gain a deeper understanding of Jesus’ ancestors, we can better comprehend God’s Word and grow in our faith. I have attempted to conflate the two lineages of Jesus as presented in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, to have a better understanding of both the men and women who are in Jesus’ ancestry. We will see their weaknesses and strengths of these members of Jesus’ family tree, as the Bible so honestly tells us. As we look at the ancestry of Jesus, we will learn about God’s relationship with His people, and His promise to redeem His creation from our sinful beginnings in the Garden of Eden. Through the study of Jesus’ descendants, the entire puzzle of the mystery of the ‘Messiah’ will come together as God’s Masterplan unfolds. What do we mean by the Messiah? Pearl: The Hebrew word for messiah is mashiach, meaning ‘anointed one’. The Hebrew meaning of Mashiach is a savior or liberator of a group of people. In Jewish eschatology, the Mashiach is the future Jewish king, descended from the Davidic Line who will be expected to save the Jewish nation and rule during the Messianic Age. In Christianity, we believe that the messiah is Christ, and the Son of God. The word Christ is taken from the Romanized Greek word, Christos, meaning the ‘anointed one’. Christ is the savior of all the world’s people, not just the Jewish nation. We will see in the end, in order to restore the chaos humanity created through sin, God needed to send Heaven down to us by sending His son, Jesus Christ. To restore our relationship with Him, God had to come to earth, and become flesh. The most amazing event in all of history occurred, where the eternal, infinitely Holy Son of God took on human nature and lived among humanity. Although He became human, He was both God and man at the same time, in one person.

Description : The world is full of secular mysteries that cannot be explained or solved, yet people spend hours and hours researching, studying, and asking questions in an effort to find the answer to life’s greatest secrets. Sadly, the mysteries of the Bible, which can be solved through study and prayer, are often ignored. Secrets and Mysteries of the Lost Ark walks you through a study of the ark of the covenant and the sanctuary, two important components of our Christian faith. Designed for individual use or as a group Bible study or church seminar, the twelve lessons in this study guide will prompt you to dive into the Word of God and uncover the truths that Jesus has placed within its pages. “Pastor James Hoffer is to be commended for writing about the sanctuary through this unique study method. This book unfolds the importance of the sanctuary message. I recommend this study to every Seventh-day Adventist.” Norman R. Gulley, Ph.D., research professor in systematic theology, Southern Adventist University “Secrets and Mysteries of the Lost Ark is excellent for new church members and serves as a wakeup-call for those who may have neglected the message that God has given to His last day church.” Richard W. O’Ffill, revivalist and author “Many Adventists know so little about the sanctuary and our doctrines about it or their meanings. This could start a revival in those who read and study it.” Carol Zarska, director, Mountain Refuge Family Ministries, and speaker on the subjects of the sanctuary and prayer “This is a creative, clear, concise study that shows how our fundamental beliefs can be traced back to the sanctuary. A heart-warming and inspiring journey to be sure.” Dave Turner, participant in the first public seminar for this book

The author presents the images of Revelation as a "divine picture book" not to be debated, or to serve as a detailed calendar of end-time events but to reassure believers today that the promise of the gospel is still as real, fresh, and powerful as it's ever been.

Description : Messiah's apocalyptic vision is a war manual, designed to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it. It uses symbolic words that are defined in the Old Testament to point to a literal fulfillment. If you read Revelation only from a literal perspective, the interpretation is hidden. Understanding the vision is like taking a Biblical final exam. If you've read the whole Word, you will have seen the symbolism that Messiah uses and can apply it to the fulfillment. If you read Revelation as one chronological narrative, the prophecies seem out of sequence. That's because it has four chronological layers, each of which spans from when it was written until Messiah returns. This book explains the prophecies of Revelation on a timeline to help you see how the four chronological layers interact with each other, so that you can comprehend the whole vision. You will learn how to identify who fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the antichrist beast, the false prophet, and the harlot called 'Mystery, Babylon the Great.' You will understand the proper context of the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments; the little book of Revelation 10, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11. Whether you're a novice at Bible prophecy or someone who has studied it extensively, I provide an explanation that is easy to understand yet has the depth of verse by verse explanations to provide you the evidence you need to prove it out. When the saints can prove the fulfillment of Revelation, they can proclaim to the world the authority of Scripture and the deity of Messiah, to cast down the power of the enemy over people, so that millions are redeemed for the kingdom.

Description : God is our Deliverance. He is not the means or the method of deliverance, but He is Deliverance. Just as Jesus IS the Way, Truth and Life. If we want deliverance, be in spiritually, emotionally or physically, we need God – but not an idea or the thought or the religion pertaining to God, but God Himself. We need God in our lives and we need to abide in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to secure our deliverance and to walk in deliverance. This study guide explores what is deliverance, how it pertains to spirit, soul and body and how, contrary to common perceptions, all disciples of the Lord are called to the ministry of deliverance. Deliverance is not an exclusive ministry, but is part and parcel of the duty of the disciple. The study guide reveals how our real battle is of a spiritual nature, thus dispelling the erroneous doctrines and notions that demons and hell does not exist. This study guide seeks to equip, to empower and to train the disciple on the matter of deliverance, thus spiritual warfare.

Description : We live a time where man’s wisdom prevails, to such an extent that the world has now determined what is good, what is real and what truth is. Moral-relativism has been promoted, where each man determined his own truth at the expense of absolute truth. Where the truth and wisdom of man prevails at the expense of God’s wisdom, then corruption of mind and spirit follows (Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 1). We live a time where often people have turned what was once evil into good, and where good has become unpopular. This is why it says in the Scriptures to seek wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord, for wisdom is to know what is good and what is evil, and to know good from evil. And once we know what is right and wrong, we need to follow such a path. That is wisdom.
