Creator-Creature Conflict 474: Unconditional Love is the Conduct of the Body of Christ

ANCF-503-130609 - length: 68:36 - taught on Jun, 9 2013

Class Outline:


WELCOME TO BARAH MINISTRIES

 
 
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity (fear…cowardice), but (God has given us a spirit) of power and (unconditional) love and discipline.
 
‘Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
 
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

 

TODAY’S STUDY

Unconditional Love is the Conduct of the Body of Christ 

 
I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.
 
…ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory (essence) of God…
 
But I (Paul) am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
 
ASSIGNMENT THIS WEEK
Read Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians
 
He (God the Father) made known to us (believers in Christ) the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention, which He purposed in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ)…
 
…with a view to an administration (a dispensation…the Church Age) suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.
 
Then I (John the Revelator) saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
 
And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years…
 
…and he ((the angel) threw him (Satan) into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he (Satan) would not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he (Satan) must be released for a short time.
