The Vision of the Final Temple (Ezekiel)

Posted Jan 24th 2010, 12:41 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


The Vision of the FinalTemple
(Ezekiel 40-48)
 
            This vision is the most difficult to interpret of the whole book of Ezekiel. Several months ago I began a study of this prophet and his ministry. Many visions were somewhat confusing, but after much prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit, I came to an understanding.
 
            As we know from the New Testament, Jesus Christ is the Alter and also the Sacrifice. Some theologians see the vision as corrected by the Apostle...

Blinded by Lack of Faith

Teaching for March 2008:
Blinded by Lack of Faith
 
No one would speed down a road past flashing lights and signs saying “Bridge Out! Danger! Bridge Out!”  That is unless he was on drugs or drunk. Yet people speed into Hell every day. Why? Could it be they are blinded by their lack of faith?
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age [Satan] has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that...

Thoughts Concerning Revelation

Posted Jan 26th 2008, 02:22 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


A Charisma Ministries teaching for February 2008:
 
Thoughts Concerning Revelation
 
For the last few months I have been making a special study of the last book of the Bible, Revelation. Many books have been written about this book of visions that John received while banished by Rome to the Isle of Patmos. It was on the first day of the week that John “saw” a series of seven scenes concerning things that were, that are, and that will be. He saw things...

New Beginnings

A Charisma Ministries teaching for January 2008:
 
New Beginnings
 
At this time of the year we tend to thing about ways to improve our lives. We make New Year’s Resolutions. Last week my pastor set forth six things we might want to improve. One was spiritual growth.
 
This got me “a thinking” about faith. Some of us pray for more faith. Some even beg God for it. God has already given each Christian a “measure of faith” (Romans 12:3). We need to grow...

Charisma Ministries teaching for December 2007:
 
Christmas Celebration
 
This season let’s celebrate Christmas by remembering the many things that came to mankind when Jesus was born some 2,010 years ago. Jesus was likely born in the fall of 3BC and was placed on the cross in April AD 30. What happened during those 32 1/2 years?
 
This year celebrate Christmas by remembering that God sent His Son into the world to grow up without sin as a boy and then a man, to...

Thanksgiving?

Posted Nov 17th 2007, 06:21 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


This Is the Second Teaching for November 2007:
 
Thanksgiving?
 
Praise the LORD.  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. (NIV Psalm 106:1)  As we approach the annual Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, we tend to forget to thank God for our many blessings. In this Scripture we are told to give thanks to God for His love and goodness. How can we adequately do this?
 
The first word in the above verse is “Praise.”...

The End of Time?

This Is the Second Teaching for October 2007:
 
The End of Time?
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God”. (2 Thessalonians 2:2, 3 NIV)
I hear much about this...

Righteousness?

Posted Oct 2nd 2007, 01:03 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


This Is the Teaching for October 2007:
 
Righteousness?
 “But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:21-24 NIV)
 
As a Christian, did you know that you are...

This Is the Second Teaching for September 2007:
 
Paul’s Prayer for Us!
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians Church he prays a prayer of thanksgiving for their faithfulness. In Ephesians 1:18 and 19 Paul mentions three things that could give them hope in the future. “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in...

God: Allah or Jehovah?

Posted Aug 18th 2007, 03:22 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


This Is the Teaching for September 2007:
 
God: Allah or Jehovah?
 
Just what is the name of God? In the news on August 16th, 2007 a bishop in the Netherlands suggests that we re-name God: “Allah.” Outgoing Roman Catholic Bishop “Tiny” Muskens has proposed that God should be called "Allah," because "what does God care what we call him?" The bishop’s thought was that this would make a better relationship with the Muslim people.
 
What is in a Name, anyway? In the Old...

This Is the Teaching for August 2007:
 
Why we are blessed!
 
18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his...

One Nation under God

Posted Jul 1st 2007, 12:46 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


Teaching for July 2007:
One Nation under God
 
          This is the season that we celebrate the birth of our nation, The United States of America. In our pledge to our flag, we say “one nation under God …” Four hundred years ago; the English established a colony called Jamestown. On April 29, 1607 they landed at Cape Henry, Virginia. They dedicated themselves to the evangelization of America, and the world to God. Then in 1776 this nation declared its...

The Joy of the LORD

Posted Jun 13th 2007, 06:45 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


Teaching for June 2007:
The Joy of the LORD
 
          There is a difference between “joy” and “happiness.”  For the average Christian the definition of the two words is the same. For most, both words mean “an exciting feeling or pleasure.” In the Scriptures, in most translations, “joy” is a feeling that had its base in a person’s relationship with the Lord. We even sing a song “the joy of the Lord is my strength.” On the other hand “happiness” is the...

Teaching for May 2007:
Receiving Healing
 
            Is healing for today? Was it only for the first century? Is it real? These questions come to the mind of any thinking person. Just what is the truth?
            “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 NIV). We know that Jesus healed all diseases when He was here on earth. He told us to do the same. How did He do this healing? He healed by the Holy Spirit’s...

Redeemed from the Curse of the Law

Posted Apr 24th 2007, 03:07 by Charisma Ministries on Teaching/Education


An April 2007 teaching from Charisma Ministries:
 
 
Redeemed from the Curse of the Law
 
 
A few weeks ago we celebrated Resurrection Sunday, sometimes called Easter. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus provide the payment for our redemption. Just what are we redeemed from? You may respond: “Sin.” This is partly right, but we redeemed from much more. Look at this Scripture.
 
Galatians 3:13-14 reads: “’Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is...
