Essentials of Christianity. The nature of God. John 14:8-11, 16-20, 23-26.

I. Some challenge questions:
A. Why did Jesus tell Philip that when Philip had seen Him that Philip had seen the Father?
B. Why is it important we believe and not necessarily understand the three Person Godhead?
C. What did does Jesus say leads to the Three Person Godhead making their home in us?

II. Today’s lesson

A. We learned last week that believers are to join God’s work in the church and the world. Today we learn that God reveals Himself to us as God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
B. Like Jesus’ disciples who walked with Him on earth did, we struggle with knowing Who God is. One aspect with which we struggle is understanding God being three Persons in one Being, the so-called Godhead. Thank God we need not understand this for us to be blessed by Him, like we do not need to understand how the food we eat keeps us alive.
C. In the anxiety His disciples experienced as Jesus prepared them for His going to the cross by saying God the Father was preparing a place for them, Philip in John 14:8 said, “Show us the Father”. Like a disappointed teacher realizing His student has not “got” a lesson He has been trying to teach him, Jesus in 14:9 said, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father”. Note Jesus did not say that He is the Father. Earlier in 10:30 Jesus told His disciples “I and the Father are One”. Although God the Father and God the Son (and God the Holy Spirit) are separate Persons, Each is in the Other and They are one Being. We should not worry that our limited minds cannot understand what Scripture says about this but the faith that God gives us allows us to accept this truth and be blessed by it.
D. Jesus says in 14:10 “Don’t you believe [not understand] that I am in [not the same as] the Father and that the Father is in me?” We believe through the faith God gives us. Jesus says these are the Father’s words Who is living in Him and is doing His work in Him.
E. Jesus in 14:11 commands us to believe the Father is in Him, knowing His miracles.
F. Jesus in 14:16-20 comforts His disciples (including us), saying although He is physically returning to His Father, He is leaving the 3rd Person of the Godhead, Holy Spirit, to “come along side them”, and in fact, to be in them. This will be better for them (and us) than what they were then experiencing with Jesus being physically with them but outside them; going forward He in Holy Spirit will always be inside them. The Greek word used for “another” Counselor indicates “another of the same kind”, saying Holy Spirit is just like (but separate from) Jesus. Jesus says the world cannot accept Holy Spirit because it neither sees nor knows Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, His disciples know Holy Spirit because they know Jesus. This is the same argument Jesus made with Philip when He told Philip that he had seen the Father because Philip had seen Jesus. He then told His disciples that they will realize that He is in the Father, that they are in Jesus, and that Jesus is in them.
G. In 14:23-26 Jesus says those who love Him will obey His teaching and His Father will love them and He and the Father will make their home with them. Again, Jesus makes the point these words are His Fathers’, not His. He and His Father are separate Persons, but they are on the same page with each other and they (along with Holy Spirit as He stated earlier) will make their home within us believers. Jesus then re-emphasizes that God the Father will send God the Holy Spirit to teach us all things and will remind us of all the things that Jesus has taught them (us), showing how the Three work jointly for us.

 Spiritual Disciplines. Connecting to Christ’s Body. 1 Corinthians 12:12-24.

I. Some challenge questions:
A. What do you think were some divisions in the Corinthian church Paul that addressed?
B. How did Paul used the analogy of the human body to speak to unity in the church?
C. What did Paul mean by body parts that seem to be “weaker” being indispensable?

II. Today’s lesson

A. We learned last that fasting and confession keep us rightly focused on Christ. We learn today spiritual growth calls for regular interaction with and ministry to other believers.
B. There is much talk of diversity in our country today and the discussion typically is in moral terms that is, it is the right thing to do, and not in effectiveness terms, that is, it is the most effective things to do. Paul in his Corinthians letter speaks of the effectiveness of diversity that empowers His church to be the instrument for His work here on earth.
C. The church at Corinth was a wealthy, unhealthy church in which people and groups of different wealth status, class status, ethnic backgrounds, and other differences fought over whose contribution was most important, or not important, to church work. Paul in 1 Corinthians 12:12 began his analogy of the human body being like the church by saying that many parts form one body. The inference is that the many people and groups in the church formed one body, the church. In 12:13 everyone and every group was baptized into one Spirit, that is, Holy Spirit, that united all its parts. Paul then hinted at some of the divisions: Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), slave (bond servants) and free. One can imagine the vile divisions that contaminated church work by looking at our divisions today.
D. Paul in 12:14-20 then hinted at the ongoing divisions in the Corinthian church by saying if one body part is not like another body part then it does not belong in the body. One can imagine that some were saying that if they did not have a highly visible role in church work, like preaching or teaching, then they were not a part of the church. Paul infers that if everyone only preached and taught, then we would not have a church! He emphasized that there are many parts, but one body, the Body of Christ. Paul also made the important point: God Himself arranged the parts of the church as He wanted them to be and for His purpose. Man did not arrange the parts, so man cannot dictate what they do or do not do.
E. Paul in 12:21 was likely addressing a specific problem in the church when he said, “The eye cannot say to the hand ‘I don’t need you…”. There were likely people in the church with “more important” church responsibilities who were hating on those in the church with “less important” responsibilities. One can see how this would cause much strife, division, and pain. We see this in today’s church and Paul in these verses spoke strongly against these attitudes that lead to these practices. In addition, many in the church might think that their responsibilities are among “less important” ones and so will strive to do other responsibilities rather than focus on doing their assigned responsibilities well.
F. Paul in 12:22 says these so-called “weaker” gifts or responsibilities are indispensable, meaning that the church cannot function without them. God lifts every gift to His glory.
G. In 12:23, Paul says those gifts that are unpresentable, that is, not seen, are treated with special modesty, like we do with certain body parts. God treats them all as special
H. On the other hand, Paul in 12:24 says that those gifts that are out front need no special treatment. Instead, God gives greater honor to those gifts that the world does not honor.

Please join us everyday at 8:00p as we celebrate Black History Month, spotlighting African American inventors, heroes, educators, atheletes, and trendsetters who paved the way for current and future generations to come!

[02/11/21]   Please join us tonight @ 7:00 PM for Bible Study. Our lesson will be led by Dr. Donald Wesson. The outline is below:

Minor Prophets: Obadiah and Nahum

I. Overall messages for:
• Our Nation
• Our Communities
• Our Families
• Us as individuals

II. Obadiah
• About the Prophet: We know very little of him; his name means “servant of the Lord”.
• Time of the prophecy: Possibly around Jerusalem’s fall, ~587/586 B.C.; before Nahum.
• Message: God’s sovereignty brings justice/mercy to the oppressed. Set as criminal trial in which Edom is brought to justice and sentenced for crimes against Israel. God is Judge.
• Edomites
o Descendants of Esau, Jacob’s (Israel’s) twin and older brother (Genesis 25:21-26).
o Esau vowed to kill Jacob for deceiving him out of “his” birthright (Genesis 27:41).
o Nevertheless, Esau forgave Jacob (Genesis 33:4-20).
• The relationship of later generations of Edomites with Jacob (Israel)
o Edomites intermarried with its non-Jewish nations, taking on their cultures and undoubtedly their faiths (Genesis 28:6-9).
o Edom thought itself as a big dog in the area but were seen by others as insignificant.
o Edom thought their homestead in rugged mountainous areas protected from enemies.
o Despite kindship with Israel, Edom refused to help Israel in its need (Num 20:14-21).
o Edom fought against Israel (Obadiah 10-14). Secular history says that Edom allied with the Babylonians in the fall of Jerusalem in 587/586 BC and helped plunder it.
• God’s judgement on the Edomites
o After helping the Babylonians sack Jerusalem, Edom was defeated by many armies, including the Nabateans and Israel, including King David’s army.
o In A.D. 70, Idumeans (descendants of Edomites) entered Jerusalem to loot it and were destroyed when Rome destroyed Jerusalem year, including destroying the Temple. A few year later the Romans destroyed the remaining Edomite homeland, wiping them out completely. Fulfilling God’s prophecy in Obadiah 18, Edomites no longer exist.

III. Nahum
• About the prophet: His name means “consoler”. He is described as “the Elkosh*te” but there is uncertainty as to his origins. However, Capernaum means “village of Nahum”.
• Time of prophecy: Nahum prophesies the fall of Nineveh, capital of the Assyrian empire, which occurred 612 B.C. Nahum in 3:8 describes the fall of the Egyptian city of Thebes which occurred 663 BC, so it occurred between these dates. This is after Jonah preached in Nineveh, ~750-800 B.C., when Nineveh repented, and God forgave them (Jonah 3:10).
• Message: Nahum brings a message that is a burden on the heart of God and of Nahum. He preaches judgement on Nineveh that despite its previous repentance, returned to evil.
• God’s judgement on Assyria and its capital city, Nineveh:
o God used Assyria to judge Judah by taking them into exile, but He now will judge Assyria and its capital Nineveh with destruction using, Babylonians and the Meads.
o Assyrian King Sennacherib killed by his sons during idol worship (2 Kings 19:37).
o Assyria was infamous for cruelty toward enemies that it conquered, including Judah.
o Nineveh, founded on murder, bloodshed, and warfare, was known for its routine violence as a way of its daily life. They were repaid with equal cruelty when it was destroyed by the Babylonians and the Meads as described in Nahum 3:1-3, and “all because of the wanton lust of a harlot” as in 3:4.
o Nineveh was wiped out and rediscovered by archeologists in 1842, 2,454 years later!

IV. What is the message for us today?

God puts people (individuals) in families, families in communities, and communities in nations.

• Nation
o Edom and Nineveh were examples of disobedience to His word inside their societies and examples of cruelty to those outside of their societies, including God’s people.
o Each had been exposed to God’s word and showed evidence of God’s word blessing their lives through their actions. These actions included forgiving to those who had sinned against them and repenting when they heard His preached word. Nevertheless, living out God’s word did not carry over into their following generations. Why not?
o After centuries of patience, God destroyed each because of persistent disobedience.
• Community
o One can imagine individual communities being troubled by their nation’s widespread disobedience to God’s word, wanting to do better, not having opportunities to learn to do better, and so followed the crowd, making the national disobedience even worse.
o Their prior exposure to God’s word gave them initial opportunity to learn and apply His word to their lives. However, learning and living God’s word was apparently not sustained. Having a tradition of doing this required leadership from community faith institutions having God’s word, preserving it, teaching it, and importantly, living it.
o This points out the need for the church to take the lead in teaching and living God’s word in their own communities and leading other communities to do the same.
• Family
o One can imagine that individual families saw the disobedience to God’s word in their communities, were disturbed by it, but had little resources to learn God’s word and saw few if any examples of God’s word being lived out in their communities.
o If they had local churches that were that “shining light on the hill”, they would have been attracted to go to it to learn God’s word and how to live it out in their lives.
o God-fearing families could then lead other families to be God-fearing.
• Individual persons
o One can imagine that individuals saw disobedience to God’s word in their families, were disturbed by it, but had little resource to learn God’s word and saw few if any examples of God’s word being lived out in their families.
o Family members can learn God’s word from their church and live it in their families.
o Spiritual leaders in their families lead other members to learn and live out His word.

The local church is key to our nation, communities, families, and individuals avoiding this fate.

God puts people (individuals) in families, families in communities, and communities in nations.
