WELCOME TO BARAH MINISTRIES

 
TODAY’S STUDY
THE CREATOR’S Will is that You Ponder Spiritual Questions
 
FROM A NON-RESIDENT CONGREGATION MEMBER
 
I have studied and studied this year’s lessons! They have hit my soul like  sweet refreshing summer days after a long hard winter!!!! 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Do you know God’s Word? 
 
WILL
A faculty of consciousness that expresses deliberate action…the ability to choose…the freedom to select your actions…the decision to assert a choice, either actively or passively…obedience to a choice you make…to elect…to determine…to decide…to bring about…to influence…to exercise discretion in a matter… 
 
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I (the Lord Jesus Christ) came that they may have (the Zoe) life, and have it abundantly.” 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Are you using the power of your will to live the New Self Life? 
 
It was for freedom that (the Lord Jesus) Christ set us (believers in Christ) free; therefore keep (on) standing firm (permanently in the freedom) and do not be subject again (by going back) to a yoke of slavery. 
 
SLAVERY
Bondage to practices…institutions…drudgery…severe toil. 
 
But the people (the Exodus generation Jews) thirsted there for water; and they grumbled against Moses and said, “Why, now, have you brought us up from Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?” 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Are you yoked to God and His Word? 
 
YOKE
A device for joining together a pair of draft animals
 
 
This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,//who desires all men to be saved and (for all men) to come to the (epignosis) knowledge of the truth. 
 
I will bow down toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness (Your grace) and (for) Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name. 
 
But when He, (God) the (Holy) Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
What doctrinal coat hangers have you discarded from your soul as a result of your studies this year? 
 
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet (all the goals outlined in the previous verses); but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead… 
 
…I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 
 
Let us therefore, as many as are perfect (mature), have this attitude (a lack of self-sufficiency); and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you… 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
In what ways are you deceived? 
 
“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect (believers in Christ).//Behold, I have told you in advance.” 
 
Wuest Translation
Simon, Simon, behold, Satan by asking obtained you and your fellow disciples for himself and from my power to his, in order that he may shake you in a sieve as grain is sifted, by an inward agitation, trying your faith to the verge of overthrow.//But as for myself, I made petition concerning you that your faith should not be totally eclipsed. And as for you, when you have returned to your original position with respect to your faith, stabilize your brethren. 
 
Shawshank Redemption Movie Quote
“Life comes down to a simple choice Red…you either get busy living or you get busy dying.”
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
In what ways does your life reflect the attitude of the Lord Jesus Christ? 
 
Have this attitude in yourselves (be of the same mind), which was also in Christ Jesus… 
 
All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. 
 
…and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 
 
This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 
 
Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe…

QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
What is your level of alertness in the matter of spiritual deception? 
 
THE DOCTRINE OF REBOUND TEST
What does this doctrine of rebound teach us in light of the Creator-Creature Conflict?
 
How consistent is the doctrine of rebound with the thinking, the work, the reputation and the essence of God?
 
What does the bible have to say about the doctrine of rebound? 
 
CRITICAL QUESTION
 
Do you see any biblical connection between confessing your sins and the filling of the Spirit? 
 
Rebound and Keep Moving! Page 4
Sins were not forgiven at the Cross.  Only the penalty of sin is removed once and for all at the Cross.  Christ’s substitutionary Spiritual death accomplishes redemption, but not forgiveness. 
 
Isolation of Sin, Appendix A Page 27
There is no spirituality or spiritual life without rebound. 
 
Rebound Revisited Page 17
You can pray fervently for forgiveness of sins and you are not forgiven. God heeds no prayer offered in a state of carnality. 
 
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. 
 
The next day he (John the Baptist) saw (the Lord) Jesus (Christ) coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” 
 
For He (God the Father) rescued us (believers in Christ) from the domain of darkness (when we were unbelievers), and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son//in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
 
My little children (believers in Christ), I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if (3) anyone sins (maybe you will and maybe you won’t, you have a choice), we have an Advocate (paraclete) with (God) the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous… 
 
…and He Himself (the Lord Jesus Christ) is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours (as believers) only, but also for those of the whole world (unbelievers as well). 
 
I am writing to you, little children (believers in Christ), because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. 
 
So I (the Lord Jesus Christ) say to you, “(Keep on) Ask(ing), and it will be given to you; (keep on) seek(ing), and you will find; (keep on) knock(ing), and it will be opened to you.” 
 
“For everyone who (keeps on) ask(ing), receives; and he who (keeps on)  seek(ing), finds; and to him who (keeps on) knock(ing), it will be opened.” 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Are you obedient to God and His Word? 
 
But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.’
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
Are you giving all of yourself to God? 
 
‘AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.’ 
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
As a result of your learning, how are you handling post salvation sinning? 
 
I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful (by God), but that you were made sorrowful (by God) to the point of repentance (metanoia…a change of mind…a complete reversal of your position); for you were made sorrowful (by God) according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. 
 
JOHN 5:14
…do not sin anymore 
 
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness 
 
Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning… 
 
THANKS FOR WATCHING!
THANKS FOR LISTENING!
