David - A Man After God’s Own Heart - Lesson #5 - David and Goliath - Part 1 - 1 Samuel 17:1-33 — 09-01-2019

Posted in David - A Man After God's Own Heart by BelieversBibleClass on September 4th, 2019

Our new series, "King David - A Man After God's Own Heart", is a big success as class members and people around the world access this series on our website.  And this week, we started looking at a very popular story in the Bible, the conflict between the young David, and the giant, Goliath.  I say giant because according to the scriptures, Goliath stood 9 feet 9 inches tall.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, carefully lays out the details of this story, and we can almost see the battlefield and what is going on there.  This is Part 1 of this particular story, and Doug will continue the story on our next lesson.  This is the 5th lesson in this ongoing series.




David - A Man After God’s Own Heart - Lesson #4 - David and the Harp - 1 Samuel 16:14-23 - 08-25-2019

Posted in David - A Man After God's Own Heart by BelieversBibleClass on August 29th, 2019

This is the 4th lesson in this new series titled: "King David - A Man After God's Own Heart".  Today, we look at verses 14-23 in the 16th chapter of 1 Samuel.  David, who is a young boy in charge of the flocks, is learning many lessons from God which is molding him into a Man After God's Own Heart.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, is presenting this major series to help us in our quest to be seen by God in this same manner.

This is the 3rd lesson in this new series, David - The Man After God's Own Heart.  We are now looking into the book of First Samuel for details of this, the greatest King that has ever been a king on this planet.  And we are looking into the methods that God used to prepare David, and get him ready for the future.  Turn to 1st Samuel chapter 16 to follow along.

Posted in David - A Man After God's Own Heart by BelieversBibleClass on August 12th, 2019

The second lesson in our new major series, titled: "King David - A Man After God's Own Heart" is a continuation of last weeks lesson as part of an introduction to this series.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, is showing us, through the scriptures, that God is very interested in our heart, and is assessing it constantly.  Our goal is to learn what King David did throughout his life to please God, and to become the one that God points out as one who seeks to be in that same position.




David - A Man After God’s Own Heart - Lesson #1 - The Beginnings of the Israelites Monarchy - Select Scriptures - 08-04-2019

Posted in David - A Man After God's Own Heart by BelieversBibleClass on August 7th, 2019

After a very long wait, we are happy to announce that today we begin a major scriptural study of "King David, A Man after God's Own Heart".  David was the 2nd King of Israel, and is considered the greatest King of Israel.  And he holds the title of a "Man After God's Own Heart".  And you will find that statement directly from God in the scriptures.  How did he acquire that title?  What did he do that made God so in favor of him?  And what about those sins I've heard he committed?  All of this, and more in this series.  This is the first lesson in the series.




The Study of Spiritual Warfare - Lesson #6 - The Unseen War - Chrislam - Part 6 7-28-2019

Posted in Spiritual Warfare Series by BelieversBibleClass on July 30th, 2019

The final lesson in the mini-series - "Spiritual Warfare - The Unseen War".  This is part 6 of this series and covers a new religion that is sweeping the world, and is on fire in America.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, goes through 10 of the tenets of this "religion", and shows how dangerous it is.  As an appendix to this lesson, we are making available some information regarding this religion.  You can download it from our website - www.BelieversBibleClass.com - and then go to the "Miscellaneous and Topical Studies" tab.  This is information that every Born Again Christian needs to read and understand.  And Doug does a superlative job at explaining the downfall of this belief system.




The Study of Spiritual Warfare - Lesson #5 - The Unseen War - Part 5 - 07-21-2019

Posted in Spiritual Warfare Series by BelieversBibleClass on July 23rd, 2019

This is the 5th lesson in this very short mini-series on Spiritual Warfare.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, brings us this series to warn and protect us from the war that is going on all around us -- a war between God, and the Devil, that is Satan.  Satan is trying hard to weaken us as Christians, to take away the joy that we experience as children of God, and in many cases, Satan is winning this war.  This is a very important lesson series that every Christian should hear, and do away with unclean materials like the one discussed in this lesson. 




The Study of Spiritual Warfare - Lesson #4 - The Unseen War - Part 4 - Ephesians 6:18-20 - 07-14-2019

Posted in Spiritual Warfare Series by BelieversBibleClass on July 17th, 2019

We are in a short study on the theme of "Spiritual Warfare".  Class teacher, Doug Brady has titled this series, The Unseen War.  All around us, Christians are being persecuted for their biblical beliefs.  Even here in America, we are seeing more and more persecution of churches.  This series points out the meaning of Spiritual Warfare, tells where it comes from, and discusses what we, as born-again Christians need to do to combat this deadly scourge.

This is the 3rd lesson in this mini-series on the subject of Spiritual Warfare.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, is showing us from the Bible, what Spiritual Warfare is, how it affects us as Christians, and what weapons we can use that are made available to us by God, in fighting this war against Satan.  Today, we look at the first of these weapons.




The Study of Spiritual Warfare - Lesson #2 - The Unseen War - Part 2 - Selected Scripture - 06-30-2019

Posted in Spiritual Warfare Series by BelieversBibleClass on July 2nd, 2019

 This is the 2nd lesson in this mini-series titled: "Spiritual Warfare -- The Unseen War - Part 2".  We are taking a careful look into the Spiritual Warfare that is so prevalent in the world today.  We see churches being destroyed, Christians being mocked and even imprisoned in some parts of the world.  We need to understand Spiritual Warfare, and this short series will help help to be prepared for what could happen even in our church.




The Study of Spiritual Warfare - Lesson #1 - The Unseen War - Part 1 - Selected Scripture - 06-23-2019

Posted in Spiritual Warfare Series by BelieversBibleClass on June 27th, 2019

We start another mini-series this week on the subject of "Spiritual Warfare".  The Christian church, it's people and leaders and every aspect of the Christian Life is being attacked today around the world.  In many parts of the world, there is severe persecution for reading the bible, attending church, talking about Jesus.  And it is starting to be seen in America, too.  This short series will address this issue, and show some of the things that are happening, and what the Bible has to say about it. 




The Attack of Islam on the United States of America - Part 4 - The Kafir - 06-16-2019

Posted in The Attack of Islam on America by BelieversBibleClass on June 19th, 2019

This is the final installment in our short mini-series on Islam, which has been titled, "The Attack of Islam on the United States of America".  Class teacher, Doug Brady, has spent many hours preparing for these 4 lessons, and shares with us that he has been led to teach these lessons by the Lord Jesus.  It is a big step from our usual lessons which are based on the Holy Bible, and for this series, it was based on the Qu'ran.  Todays lesson takes up the subject of "The Kafir", as well as some more information on "Sharia Law", and ends with a discussion of what our responsibility as children of God and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ is toward reaching those who are engrained in Islam.  These are 4 lessons that need to be shared with family members and others.  Next week, we will start a short series on "Spiritual Warfare".




The Attack of Islam on the United States of America - Part 3 - The Threat of Sharia - 06-09-2019

Posted in The Attack of Islam on America by BelieversBibleClass on June 12th, 2019

This is the third lesson in this very important mini-series titled:  "The Attack of Islam on the United States of America".  Class teacher, Doug Brady has felt a very strong leading from the Lord to teach this material so that we Christians, and we American's can be warned about what is happening in our country that is being orchestrated by Islam.  This third lesson is titled:  The Threat of Sharia.  Sharia Law is showing up more and more in our country, and it totally works against the freedoms and democracy that we are.  You need to hear this material.  Our website at www.BelieversBibleClass.com also provides downloadable Notes that Doug uses in teaching these lessons.  




The Attack of Islam on the United States of America - Part 2 - The Concept of Jihad - 06-02-2019

Posted in The Attack of Islam on America by BelieversBibleClass on June 3rd, 2019

This is the second lesson is a short mini-series on the false religion of Islam.  Last week, we learned about the history of Islam, and also learned that Islam is not a peaceful religion.  Rather, it is a religion of warfare and of forced submission.  In this, the second installment, we will take a close look at Jihad, what it is, how it occurs, the patience of Islam in presenting it to Americans, and what we should do about it.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, has carefully studied this subject, and this is a presentation of the findings from his study.  There will be 1 or two more lessons on this subject in the next few weeks. 




The Attack of Islam on America - Part 1 - A Special Mini-Series - 05-26-2019

Posted in The Attack of Islam on America by BelieversBibleClass on May 28th, 2019

We are now in a short mini-series which is a departure from our usual mode of teaching.  The title of this series is: "The Attack of Islam on America".  For this study, class teacher, Doug Brady,  will be quoting the writings in the Qu'ran, which is the writings of Islam.  In order to show the dangerous teachings of the Islamics, it is necessary to show the source of these teachings, which is the Qu'ran.  There is a short explanation of the reason for this series at the beginning of this recording.  This will be a short mini-series, of about 3-4 lessons.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #107 - The Apostle John - John 21:24-25 — 5-19-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on May 23rd, 2019

This is the final lesson in the ongoing study of the Gospel of John.  We have covered this magnificent book of the Bible in 107 lessons, all of which are available here on our Podcast, and on our website, BelieversBibleClass.com.  At that website, you will also find previous studies of many of the old and new testament books.  Today's lesson, titled "The Apostle John", takes a final look at the Apostle John.  This lesson is a wonderful completion of this study.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #106 - The Final Calling - John 21:18-23 — 5-12-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on May 15th, 2019

As we come close to the end of our study of the Gospel of John, today we look at John chapter 21, and verses 18-23.  Here, Jesus is once again placing a call upon Simon Peter.  In fact, class teacher Doug Brady makes an argument that this is the 4th call upon Peter.  The time is nearing when Jesus will ascend into Heaven, leaving Peter and the other disciples, now apostles, to reach the world with the message of Jesus Christ.  Next week, we will complete the study of this book of the Bible.

 




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #105 - The Second Calling of Simon Peter - John 21:15-17– 5-5–2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on May 5th, 2019

We are quickly reaching the end of this long (105 lessons) study of the Gospel of John.  I can tell you from personal experience that although I have read and studied this wonderful Gospel many times, class teacher Doug Brady has brought forth facts and meanings that I had never even entertained.  And this lesson, titled: "The Second Calling of Simon Peter", at the scriptural address of John 21:15-17. 

In this lesson, we see final plans being made, and instructions being given, to the disciples who have followed Jesus for these 3 years.  It will be their job to build the "church", and now 2100 years later, we see the results of that teaching, and the results of the tenacity of the disciples in those early days.

 




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #104 - The Galilean Fishing Expedition - John 21:1-14– 4-28-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on May 1st, 2019

This is the 104th lesson in our ongoing series on the Gospel of John.  We are now in the final chapter of this fantastic book, chapter 21.  And today, we look at the first 14 verses.  Jesus meets with several of his disciples on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.  These disciples have gone home to their commercial fishing business which they abandoned when Jesus chose them for the position of disciple, but now, Jesus is dead, or so they think.  In fact, he has risen from the grave, or resurrected from the grave.  And now, he shows himself to them.  Open your bible to the 21st chapter of John and follow along.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #103 - A Parenthetical Pause - John 20:30-31 — 4-14-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on April 18th, 2019

Today, we look at 2 very amazing verses in the 20th chapter of the Gospel of John.  We have been studying this Gospel for over 2 years, and this is the 103rd lesson in this series.  Every so often, when reading the bible, we read a verse that just seems to be put there for no special reason.  It perhaps emphasizes a previous point, or perhaps just fills some space between other verses.  But wait - - - this is the Bible, and its author is God.  He doesn't waste words.  These two verses have so much material included in them, and breaking it down, as class teacher Doug Brady does, is a way of realizing the importance of the material we are studying.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #102 - The Appearances of the Master - Part 3 - Doubting Thomas - John 20:24-29 — 4-7-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on April 7th, 2019

This is the 102nd lesson in this ongoing series on the Gospel of John.  We are in the 20th chapter, and will look at verses 24-29 in this lesson.  Class teacher Doug Brady, is looking at those people who Jesus meets with following his resurrection, and before the assension.  Today, He finally has a conversation with Thomas, one of the disciples.  Many call him "Doubting Thomas", because of his comments when he misses seeing Jesus on that first day.  We learn a great deal about Thomas in todays lesson.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #101 - The Appearances of the Master - Part 2 - John 20:19-23 — 3-31-2019

Posted in DefaultTag by BelieversBibleClass on April 5th, 2019

As we continue with our verse-by-verse study of the Gospel of John, we find ourselves now in the hours just following the resurrection of Jesus.  He has met with his friend, Mary Magdalene, and now meets with several others during the hours of that first Easter Sunday.  Class teacher, Doug Brady, explains very carefully what is occurring here.  Imagine if your were there in the first century, and you had been following Jesus through his ministry years.  Imagine that now, you suddenly find him, who was dead and buried, very much alive and well.  That is what is happening.  Turn in your bible to John 20:19-23.   This is the 101st lesson in this series.




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #100 - The Appearances of the Master - Part 1 - John 20:11-18 — 3-24-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on March 24th, 2019

We have reached the 100th lesson in the ongoing series on the Gospel of John.  In this lesson, class teacher, Doug Brady, begins to look at the people who saw Jesus after the resurrection.  And today, we look at Mary Magdelene. Jesus has just come from the tomb, and she doesn't recognize Him.  He does answer her questions and gives us a feel for what a glorified body looks like. 




The Study of the Gospel of John - Lesson #99 - The Empty Tomb - John 20:1-10 — 3-17-2019

Posted in The Study of the Gospel of John by BelieversBibleClass on March 23rd, 2019

He is Risen.  He is Risen indeed.  In this lesson of our series on the Gospel of John (of which this is the 99th lesson), we find the tomb empty.  What kind of emotions ran through the women when they discovered the stone rolled away, and the tomb empty.  What about Peter and John?  How did they react?  Today's lesson covers this time in history.  The resurrection has occurred, and Jesus is alive.  Turn in your bible to the 20th chapter of John and follow along in this very important lesson.
