Philippians (Part #6) deals mostly with the apostle sending Timothy and Epaphroditus to the Philippians in old age while providing seven specific points about these “fellow-workers” from the Greek. Can Israelites fall from grace? Who are the circumcision? This sermon covers Paul’s warning “beware of dogs, evil workers and the concision” and attempts to apply these spiritual teachings to our modern era.
Philippians (Part #5) continues stressing the importance of Jesus’ Name by visiting the Gospel of Matthew and the 2nd epistle of Peter for further elaboration. What was Paul’s sacrifice to Yahweh? Can men truly labor in vain? What is the Word of life? This sermon explains Paul’s directive “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” and provides updates on the current status of CPM overall.
Philippians (Part #4) begins the second chapter of Paul’s epistle to the Philippians by examining four examples of the Christian life and his appeal for faithful living. Is our Messiah called Jesus or Yahshua? Why are we instructed to have “one mind which was in Christ?” This sermon proves why Yahweh gave our Kinsman Redeemer a Name which is above all others and showcases the sevenfold example of Christ.
Philippians (Part #3) continues our study by scrutinizing Paul’s teachings about “one Spirit and one mind” from his epistle to the church in Philippi. Are Christians allowed to have varying opinions concerning doctrine? Why does the apostle Paul say “to live is Christ and to die is gain?” This ongoing (rainy) sermon on Philippians proves we are to never fear the enemy by continually striving to be of one accord.
Philippians (Part #2) provides updates on Yahweh’s Truth, Covenant People’s Books and the CPM Newsletter before covering the next twelve verses of chapter one. There are only two types of preachers in the world – discover how to discern the spirit behind yours! This continuing sermon dissects Paul’s “model prayer” for the Philippians and showcases the final result of suffering for the Gospel’s sake.
Philippians (Part #1) begins our study on the Pauline epistle by devoting the first half of this introductory sermon to an overview on the letter itself explaining the apostle’s intention for authoring it. Unlike many churches Paul helped establish the Christian converts at Philippi remained steadfast in their resistance to Judaism thus this first lecture clarifies that part of Christian Living 101 is always being joyful.
Titus (Part #2) concludes our two-part assessment of Paul’s New Testament letter by confirming what Bible teachers are supposed to instruct “elders” so they will share wisdom with the next generation of Israelites. This brief series on Paul’s epistle to Titus teaches Christians how to discern the works, teachings and doctrines of genuine pastors by comparing them to what teachers are forbidden from doing.
Titus (Part #1) begins our two-part examination of Paul’s third pastoral epistle by providing background on the book itself and clarifying under what circumstances it was wrote. This sermon covers the seventeen qualifications (and disqualifications) of being a preacher so the faithful can more easily understand what is required of Yahweh’s prophets and identify the imposter tare amongst our people with ease.
Ephesians (Part #12) completes our lengthy investigation of Paul’s writings by providing a concise summary of his entire letter before describing the Gospel panoply in detail. How can the faithful equip these pieces of “spiritual armor” today? What does each part represent? Paul closes his epistle by reminding the Ephesians “We wrestle not against flesh and blood but spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Philemon and Onesimus covers the entire epistle of Paul which emphasizes the importance of repentance and forgiveness. Onesimus once stole from Philemon yet became profitable to Paul in later life thus the result is this shortest (and most personal) of all Pauline letters. Every verse in the text is clarified because there is much the faithful can apply to their Christian walks taught in this New Testament book.
