Class Outline:


Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES

a Christian Church

 
 
We (Paul and Silvanus and Timothy) ought always to give thanks to God (the Father) for you, brethren (believers in Christ at Thessalonica), as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged is growing well), and the (unconditional) love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater…
 
…therefore, we ourselves (Paul and Silvanus and Timothy) speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.
 
This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered (walking in a manner) worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering.
 
For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you…
 
…and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus (Christ at His second coming) will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire…
 
…dealing out retribution to those who do not know God (unbelievers) and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
 
These (unbelievers) will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power…
 
…when He (the Lord Jesus Christ) comes to be glorified in (union with) His saints on that day, and to be marveled at (in His resurrection body) among all who have believed — for our testimony to you was believed (among you).

We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise
When I Think About Home 
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Loved Unconditionally By God
 
Who will separate us 
(believers in Christ) from the (unconditional) love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Priest
 
But you (Church Age believers in Christ) are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of (the) darkness (unbelief) into His marvelous light…
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Ambassador
 
Therefore, we (believers in Christ) are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us (because He is); we beg you (unbelievers) on behalf of (the Lord Jesus) Christ, be reconciled to God.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Saint
 
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to the saints (believers in Christ) who are at Ephesus and who are faithful (and who are) in (union with) Christ Jesus…
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Owner Of Absolute Righteousness
 
He (God the Father) made Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) who knew no sin (nature) to be (a) sin (substitute) on our behalf, so that we might become the (absolute) righteousness of God (+R) in (union with) Him.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
In Union With Christ
 
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in (union with) Christ Jesus (a reference to all believers in Christ).
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUMEIndwelled By the Trinity -
God the Father
 
…for it is God (the Father) who is at work in(dwelling) you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Indwelled By the Trinity -God the Son
 
If (1) Christ is in(dwelling) you (and He is), though the (physical) body (the flesh) is dead because of (an indwelling) sin (nature), yet the (human) spirit is alive because of (absolute) righteousness (imputed…+R). 
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Indwelled By the Trinity - 
God the Holy Spirit
 
But if (1) the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you (and it does), He (God the Father) who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give (the Zoe) life to your mortal bodies through His (God the Holy) Spirit who dwells in you.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Eternally Secure
 
…and I (the Lord Jesus Christ) give eternal life to them (believers in Christ), and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Eternally Secure
 
For I (Paul) am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,//nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is (a result of being) in (union with) Christ Jesus our Lord.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Direct Access To Divine Omnipotence
 
“I can do all things through Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) who strengthens me (with enabling power).”
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Filled to All the Fullness of God
 
For this reason I (Paul) bow my knees before the Father (in prayer)…//(so that you may) know the (unconditional) love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God (the Father).
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Mentored and Taught by God the Holy Spirit (EN PNEUMATI)
 
However, you (believers in Christ) are not In the flesh but in the Spirit (en Pneumati), if (1) indeed the Spirit of God (in)dwells in you (and it does). But if (3) anyone does not have the (indwelling) Spirit of Christ (you have a choice), he (that person) does not belong to Him (Christ…is not a believer). 
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Delivered From the Kingdom of Darkness
 
For He (God the Father) rescued us (believers in Christ) from the domain of darkness, and transferred us (forever) to the kingdom of His beloved Son (the Lord Jesus Christ),//in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Blessed With Every Spiritual Blessing
 
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us (believers in Christ) with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in (union with) Christ…
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Holy And Blameless
 
And although you (believers in Christ) were formerly alienated and hostile in mind (as unbelievers), engaged in evil deeds,//yet He (the Lord Jesus Christ) has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him (God the Father, as) holy and blameless and beyond reproach…
 
THE CHRISTIAN’S RESUME
Justified
 
…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,//being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in (union with) Christ Jesus;//whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation (the ONLY perfectly satisfactory sacrifice) in His blood (to you) through (your) faith.
 
CLOSING SONG
How Great Thou Art 
 
For I am confident of this very thing, that He (God the Father) who began a (divine) good work in (the creation of) you will (keep on) perfect(ing) it until the day of Christ Jesus.
 
Do not fret because of evildoers, Be not envious toward wrongdoers.//For they will wither quickly like the grass And fade like the green herb.
 
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard (garrison) your hearts and your minds (for those of you) in (union with) Christ Jesus.
 
Thanks for watching!
Thanks for listening!
