I was recently asked by a friend that I hadn't seen for a while, "So Joel, what's been going on?". My response was, well... pathetic. In this episode I'll examine why, as we ask ourselves what really defines who we are.
The wrap-up for the ongoing series. Here I recap and tie up the over-reaching theme of the Gospel, extended to men who will follow the pattern enstated by Jesus.
Admittedly, I get side-tracked on this installment but even with that being the case, the theme continues as we challenge one another to be a spiritual people who really forsake all and strive to enter into the "earth as it is in heaven" reality. We'll examine the pattern of Jesus and others who have gone before us in the Scriptures.
The series continues as we look at the scriptural explanation of "transference". Those in Christ have been literally moved from a dominion of darkness into a kingdom of light. It's time we start living like it! We'll use several writings of Paul (primarily) to establish some basic spiritual/governmental realities.
The third installment of the series. This one examines the questions, "What age are we in?" "Who now rules?" and takes a brief look into Lucifer's fall using Luke, 1 John, Revelation and several of Paul's teachings.
After a lengthy introduction, here we'll dive into the timeline of man, beginning of course, in Genesis 1. We allow Scripture to answer the questions, "In the beginning, who ruled? Who reigned the earth?" This commentary is meant to stir us all up to expand our view of why we truly exist.
OK, so this is an introduction, kind of, to a new series I titled, "What Is Man? Reclaiming The Original Purpose Of Humanity On The Earth". In it I'll be examining what the role of man was intended to be according to God's design, the surrendered dominion and several other thoughts on reestablishing God's order on the earth in our lifetime.
