I'm experimenting on doing a daily Bible study based on a chapter in the Bible. I'm thinking that there is too much for us to learn in every chapter, but I still wanted to try.
B1 False teacher--one who does not teach the whole New Testament in its plain, normal sense.
C1 They do this
D1 By redefining words
D2 Not looking at context
D3 Not take the plain, normal sense
D4 Run verses that seem similar together
D6 Start their interpretation from a theological view point rather than the Bible itself
D7 Have false revelations whether from dreams, spirit guides, or God himself (supposedly)
C2 We reveal them
D1 By knowing the Scriptures
D2 By reading and studying the Scriptures (not a commentary or someone's sermon/teaching)
D3 By reading the context
D4 By reading the words in their plain, normal sense
D5 By considering the historical, societal traditions and situations
D6 By understanding the passage and teaching starting from the Scriptures rather than a theological view point
D7 By comparing Scripture with Scripture
B2 Common salvation--this is the Gospel as taught by Jesus and His apostles (NeedGod)
B3 Sodom and Gomorrah--two cities in ancient times (in the life time of Abraham) who truly broke every one of the Ten Commandments frequently. They were all just about as wicked as one can be. There was not just one sin they were guilty of. They were sinners like all people, but they were about as evil as possible.
B4 The way of Cain. "...not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous." (1 John 3:12, NKJV)
B5 Error of Balaam. Numbers 22:1-24 and 2 Peter 2:15
B6 Love Feast was the meal of the Christians together before they remembered the Lord's Supper and the work of Jesus on the cross. It would be similar to our fellowship meals of today.
B7 Praying in the Holy Spirit
C1 We can pray in the Holy Spirit
D1 Praying in the Holy Spirit would be asking for proper things, with sincerity, putting God's will first, others second, yourself third, and asking forgiveness.
D2 Some examples
E1 "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (Matthew 6:9-15, NKJV)
E2 "He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." (Matthew 26:39, EMTV)
E3 John 17
E4 "And Solomon said: "You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in truth, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day. "Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. "And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted. "Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" The speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing." (1 Kings 3:6-10, NKJV)
C2 We can pray in the flesh
D1 Praying in the flesh refers to asking wrong things for ourselves (Example, "My enemy Joe would lose his job." "Please help me to be the richest man in the county"), wrong attitude, for show, saying the same words over and over, praying without thinking, and doubt (as in "well, He won't answer it anyway").
D2 Some examples
E1 "Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk about in long robes, and love greetings in the market places, and the first seats in the synagogues, and the places of honor at dinners, who devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation." (Luke 20:46-47, EMTV))
E2 "And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. "But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. "And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words." (Matthew 6:5-7, NKJV)
E3 "Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few." (Ecclesiastes 5:2, NKJV)
E4 "Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? And what profit do we have if we pray to Him?'" (Job 21:15, NKJV)
E5 "You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures." (James 4:3, NKJV)
B1 How does Jude describe himself and the ones to whom he writes?
B2 What are we to contend for? (The Greek word for contend means to be serious and bold to defend the faith. The faith is the religion of Jesus. It has been given one time).
B3 How are false teachers described?
B4 Who are the 5 examples of false teachers?
B5 Why did God destroy some of the Israelites who fled Egypt (in the Exodus).
B6 In Jude 1:8--what are three characteristics of many false teachers?
B7 Jude 1:12--who do these false teachers care about?
B8 Jude 1:14-15--who destroys false teachers, when will this happen, and for what reason did He destroy them?
B9 Jude 1:16-18--what type of speaking do these people use, and what would they be doing in the last days?
B10 Jude 1:24-25--who can keep us in the faith and why does He?
