WHAT IS SALVATION?
The word “salvation” concerns an eternal, spiritual deliverance. When Paul told the Philippian jailer what he must do to be saved, he was referring to the jailer’s eternal destiny. Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God. But what are we actually saved from? The Bible says that our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of sin is death. But what is sin and how does God save you? Can He save even the greatest of sinners? Was it Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection that achieved our salvation and is salvation only available through Jesus Christ? What about the millions of people who don't believe in Jesus? What will happen to them? And finally, how do we receive salvation and how can we know for certain that it is real? We will attempt to answer these and other questions in "What is Salvation?"
LIFE AFTER DEATH
Humanity has been fascinated by death for centuries, adopting rituals, imagery and theories about 'the afterlife' to help make sense of it. Regardless of huge scientific advancements, death is a mystery for many, remaining largely unknowable for most people. As for what it's like to die, there are popular theories about white lights and seeing your life cinematically flash before your eyes. We do, however, have insight through the personal accounts from people who have been pronounced clinically dead but then resuscitated, some of whom have described what some people believe is the impossible: What is it like to die? The answers vary, but it is undeniable that these amazing accounts will have an affect on everyone who listens.
THE REVOLUTION FOR JESUS
What would living “countercultural lives“ really look like? The Book of Acts in the Bible describes just such a people who turned their world upside down with the Good News that Jesus brought to the Earth. Those early Christians serve as the model for us, but what about contemporary history? Are there any examples of what a movement of counterculture disciples of Jesus would look like in today's world? Consider the Jesus Movement of the 1960s and 70s. At a time when most churches had become nothing more than a social clubs, thousands upon thousands of disillusioned youth left their old lives behind to became counterculture Jesus followers. Even the mainstream media took notice of this influential movement. Join us as we delve deep into the history of what became known as "The Revolution for Jesus!"
What if Jesus were teaching on the shores of Galilee next month? No doubt multitudes would try to be present to hear Him. Many would undoubtedly go to hear Him even if they had a broken leg or some other disability. In fact, they would go especially if they had these ailments in order that He might heal them. In Matthew 10, Jesus sent His disciples to preach, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." That was 2,000 years ago. What would a disciple of Jesus be like today? In "Discipleship Today", we'll take a close look at what the difference is between what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. The word disciple means "disciplined follower". Is it possible to achieve that goal in today's world? Were the words of Jesus meant only for the generation of the Jews, 2000 years ago, or did He mean for our generation to follow them? What does the word discipleship mean in the 21st Century?
BIBLE PROHECY INSIGHTS
Prophecy constitutes nearly one-third of the Bible. Yet, in many churches, the importance of Bible prophecy is downplayed by those who dismiss it as having no practical significance. Such dismissals of Bible prophecy fly in the face of scriptures like Revelations 19:10 which says that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” There is only one place to look for a glimpse into future: The Bible. The Bible foretells the future with inerrant accuracy and has given us a snapshot of things to come. Jesus himself spoke many times about the future and He also scolded people who didn’t seem to recognize the significance of the events taking place around them. He reprimanded those who could read the sky for weather, but were unable to read the signs of the times. He said, “Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?” Join us as we investigate Bible prophecy and explore amazing predications that were made centuries before they came to pass and prophecies that have not yet come to pass.
WHY THE KING JAMES VERSION?
2 Corinthians 5, Verse 17: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." You don't have to be a Christian to hear the power of those words - simple in vocabulary, cosmic in scale, stately in their rhythms, deeply emotional in their impact. Most of us might think we have forgotten its words, but the King James Bible has sewn itself into the facric of the English language. If a child is ever the apple of her parents' eye or an idea seems as old as the hills, if we are at death's door or at our wits' end, if we have gone through a baptism of fire or are about to bite the dust, if it seems at times that the blind are leading the blind or we are casting pearls before swine, if you are either buttering someone up or casting the first stone, the King James Bible, whether we know it or not, is speaking through us. Join us for an amazing journey to find out why the King James Version of the Bible is a masterpiece that continues to speak to more people around the world than any other version of the Bible.
