Foundational Teachings (The Mind of Christ: His 7 Steps Down; The Mind of Christ: His 7 Steps Up; The Minds of Some Men of God: Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditis as Our Examples)

21. The Love of Christ for His Church and that of the Husband and Wife – a teaching from The Song of Solomon
20.
The sufferings of Christ (2 types-those we can and cannot share).
19. Two very important but related teachings. One deals with salvation, what you bring Christ. The other deals with the effect of salvation upon the believer.
18. What about drinking wine and strong drink. What does the Bible teach?
17. The Holiness of Marriage.
16. What does the Bible mean when it says to church members “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. What does it mean to a husband and wife when it says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.”
15. Learn the meaning of the following words: instruction, understanding, wisdom, justice, judgment, equity, subtilty, knowledge, discretion.
14. Tremendous introductory teaching on Ephesians 4.
13. This is a great teaching on the faith that saves as excerpted from teaching on Ephesians 2, specifically Ephesians 2.8. Some blame God for not giving faith to them. Others, object, “God has not given me the gift of faith.” Is that his problem? When is one given the faith? Others object that they don’t believe because they have intellectual problems. What about preoccupation with past mistakes and failures, looking to oneself and not to Christ? This short 4 min. 36 sec. study handles all these objections and excuses in line with Bible teaching.
12. This is a great Bible teaching on imprecatory prayer and other matters from Psalm 137.
11. This teaching speaks of plastic twinkies for spiritual kiddies. Dr. McGee says, “There has been a famine of spiritual bread for years. Jesus is being served up as sugar and spice and everything that is nice. Jesus is made a piece of merchandise to sell to people in seminars, books, radio, and TV shows. The Bible is only a prop to use as bait to catch the unwary believer.”
10. What would the Lord have a believer to do?
9. What is the God-given purpose of missions, of all that a believer does? Is it to win souls? Is it to give out the word of God? What is it?
8a. Another short (7 min. 59 sec.) powerful teaching from Ps. 55 on what God wants a believer to do when someone near to him in the church, a confidant, stabs him in the back, betrays him.
8. Are Christians to take vengeance or pray for God to take vengeance (pray imprecatory prayers)? The first imprecatory prayer in Psalms is Psalm 5.10.
7. What is the primary business of the believer and a church? Is it soul winning? What does the word of God say about this? Get the answer by listening to this short 6 min. 56 sec. study on Psalm 1.3-6 which also looks at 2 men, 2 ways, and 2 destinies.
6. In this study from Job, we find Job’s problem. We find his secret sin.
5. Did Solomon succeed in doing what God had told him to do in being a witness to the world? The way that Israel was to witness was different than the way that the church is to witness. Learn that difference and more on this matter by listening to this short 12 min. 4 sec. teaching by Dr. J. Vernon McGee on 2 Chronicles 9.
4. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Many times American Christians will misapply this verse, sometimes to America. Learn the true meaning of the verse by listening to this short 12 min. 12 sec. audio teaching by Dr. J. Vernon McGee.
3. The Shekinah glory was removed from the earth (from Israel). Then God gave His people, the Jews, into the hands of the Gentiles and sent them into captivity. He dissolved the theocracy of Israel and became the God of heaven. … God returned in the flesh, although the Shekinah glory was not visible – He was veiled in the flesh. To hear an excellent 7 min. 49 sec. study on this from Ezra 1.2 click the link below.
2. In this study, Dr. McGee examines one of the great prayers of Scripture which is recorded in Ezra 9. Ezra returned to Jerusalem after the temple had been rebuilt. He found there that the people had committed great wickedness. What did he do? What he did is very relevant for all time. It is relevant for a church.
1. After the division of Israel, Judah had 5 outstanding kings – Asa, Jehoshaphat, Joash, Hezekiah, and Josiah. Each brought reformation and revival. Studying these kings and the revivals they brought reveals the steps to revival. Individual, family, church, national revival cannot occur without crossing some bridges. Learn what the first bridge, the first step to revival is by listening to this short 8 min. 19 sec. teaching.


Foundational teachings that will remain at top:

Ph.2.5-8_1Christ’s 7 Steps Downward. This tremendous teaching  on Philippians 2.5-8 by Dr. J. Vernon McGee reveals, among other things: (1) Who Jesus was. (2) What He laid aside when He came to earth. (3) What form he took. (4) Why He came to earth. (5) What mindset was in Christ Jesus. (6) The kind of mind God instructs believers to have. (7) When Jesus was not God. (8) What Jesus emptied himself of. (9) What Jesus came to reveal. (10) What likeness Jesus took. (11) Who humbled Jesus. (12) For what reason did the Lord Jesus come to earth? (13) Why did Jesus choose the death of the cross? (14) Did Jesus do all this for himself or others?

The Mind of Christ, His 7 Steps Down

Phill.2.9-11Christ’s 7 steps upward. Learn some important lessons from this short 7 min. 55 sec. teaching on Philippians 2.9-11. Learn (1) what the mind of God is; (2) the thing that makes the earth significant and important; (3) what man is; (4) what lends dignity to  man; (5) to whom all knees will bow; (6) who will acknowledge Jesus’ Lordship; etc. One needs to be careful calling Jesus Lord if he is not his Lord. Jesus is not the Lord of everyone. Whom is He Lord of?

The Mind of God, Christ’s 7 Steps Up

8The mind that is to be in the believer. In Philippians 2.5-11, we saw the mind of Christ and the mind of God. Now, in verses 12-30, we are presented with the minds of Paul (the apostle), his beloved and faithful follower, Timothy, and the pastor of the church at Philippi, Epaphroditus (Paul loved him because he could trust him). Church members are given many important lessons in this short teaching. Here are some examples. Believers are instructed to “Do all things without murmuring and disputings.” Paul trusted Timothy. When two men have the mind of Christ, they are together. Paul called Timothy his spiritual son. There were those Paul could not trust; they were attempting to make a name for themselves. Rejoice over the fact that Jesus Christ died for us and that we can serve Him. Walk in humility. Rejoice at the success of others in the church. Do not criticize pastors who stand on the Word of God. Paul says he cannot trust men who criticize another man who stands for Christ. You can judge a church by its attitude toward a pastor who preaches and teaches the Word of God—a bad attitude by church members toward a Bible-preaching preacher is the death knell of many churches. The devil attacks such a man; he does not attack the Word of God. The real test of a church is its attitude toward its pastor. We should respect the one who is teaching the Word of God. Epaphroditus was nigh unto death because of the work of Christ. The two things that should characterize the Christian today. There are several other very important lessons in this teaching.

The Minds of Some Men of God: Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditis as Our Examples 


Song2.1-421 (Notice there are two parts to this teaching, 21a and 21b below). Every believer should have a hot passionate love relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus is not pleased with this cool, lukewarm condition which exists today in the churches among so-called dedicated Christians. Dear believer, are there evidences of the fragrance and the perfume of Christ in your life today? Don’t be satisfied with religious gimmicks. Is the fragrance of Christ in your life today? Listen to this tremendous introductory teaching on the Song of Solomon. This little book is not for the lost. It is for the blood-tipped ear of the man who wants to have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

21a. lick here for Introductory teaching on the Song of Solomon

8Salvation if a love affair, as is the marriage of man and woman and the marriage of Christ and His church. Learn about that love affair by listening to these teachings. See the picture of the Bridegroom and what He thinks of His betrothed. Click here to hear the four meanings found in the book and the story outline of the Song of Solomon. There are four different meanings found in this book. The book (1) sets forth the glory of wedded love; (2) sets forth the love of Jehovah for Israel; (3) is a picture of Christ and the church; and (4) depicts the communion of Christ and the individual believer.

Co.1.2420. There are 2 types of sufferings of Christ which He endured and in which we cannot share. Likewise, you suffer some things which I cannot share – we cannot take some sufferings for others; no one can suffer certain things for you no matter how much they would like to do so. Every person must suffer some things which no one can share. Christ suffered as no man has or every will suffer. On the other hand, there are sufferings Christ endured which we can share. For example, He suffered for righteousness’ sake. Also, there is the suffering in the measure we identify ourselves with Christ for the proclamation of the gospel. The popularity of the Christian with the world is in inverse relation to his popularity with Jesus Christ. If the Word of God is to go out to the world, someone is going to suffer. Learn about this by listening to this 14 min. 20 sec. audio teaching by Dr. J Vernon McGee based upon Colossians 1.24.

119. Two very important but related teachings follow. One deals with savlvation, what you bring Christ. The other deals with the effect of salvation upon the believer.

19a. Philippians 3.7-9. What a person brings to Christ when he gets saved. Maybe great talent, great knowledge, wealth, works? What does one have to offer Him? How do you come to Christ? Is one attractive to God? Click here for short answers to that question.

19.b. Philippians 3.10-14. What does saving faith do? If you have saving faith, does it affect you motivation, your life purpose, your life cycle? Can you be saved without being changed! What does coming to Christ really mean? Once saved, what are to do with our past? Click here to hear the answers to these questions and more.


118. Proverbs 20:1 says, ‘Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” But did not our Lord make wine at the wedding of Cana of Galilee? Is it OK to drink booze? Hear the truthful answer in this short 7 min. 30 sec. teaching by Dr. J. Vernon McGee. See also, Proverbs 23.29-35: “Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.  Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.  They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.”

18. Is it OK to drink wine and liquor according to the Bible?


17. The holiness of marriage. Wonderful 6 min. 15 sec. teaching by Dr. J. Vernon McGee from Proverbs 5.15-17, verses which describe love in marriage. The Word of God makes it very clear that physical love and sexual love in marriage is to be sanctified and brought to a very high level.

17. Holiness of Marriage


Marriage16. What does the Bible mean when it says to church members “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. What does it mean to a husband in wife when it says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord,” etc. Learn the truth about the love of church members, the love of husbands and wives, and more on this tremendous 19 min., 10 sec. audio teaching based upon Ephesians 5.21-31.

16. Submission of church members, submission of wives, love of husbands and more from Ephesians 5.21-31

15.  Learn the meaning of the following words: instruction, understanding, wisdom, justice, judgment, equity, subtilty, knowledge, discretion. The book of Proverbs starts out with the instructions God gives the boy in the home starting out in life. This lesson speaks to several very important matters. It speaks, in part, to the know-it-all. It speaks to discipline and the purpose of discipline. Plus more.  18 min. 55 sec.

14. This 8 min. 43 sec. introductory teaching on Ephesians 4 by Dr. J. Vernon McGee is tremendous. The subject of the first 3 chapters of Ephesians considered the calling, construction, and constitution of the church. The last three chapters deal with the conduct, confession and conflict of the church. In the last three chapters, we descend to the plane of living  where we confront a demon-possessed world and a skeptical mob. It is where the rubber meets the road. Position was the key word in the 1st half of Ephesians – God has given us spiritual blessings. Have we taken possession of them? This teaching is not for dead men. It is for those who are redeemed.

13. This is a great teaching on the faith that saves as excerpted from teaching on Ephesians 2, specifically Ephesians 2.8. Some blame God for not giving faith to them.

12. This is a great Bible teaching on Psalm 137. It is an imprecatory and an historical Psalm. It touches on many matters such as imprecatory prayer (is it for today?), singing the Lord’s song in a strange land, three reasons people lose their song, a glimpse of the history of the Jews in the 70 year captivity, vengeance in both the Old and New Testament, the law of retribution, and repentance.

11. This teaching was recorded many years ago, in the 1970s or 1980s. It speaks of plastic twinkies for spiritual kiddies. Dr. McGee says, “There has been a famine of spiritual bread for years. Jesus is being served up as sugar and spice and everything that is nice. Jesus is made a piece of merchandise to sell to people in seminars, books, radio, and TV shows.

6. In this study from Job, we find Job’s problem. We find his secret sin. His 3 friends had not revealed it; though they spoke a lot of truth, none of what they said revealed Job’s problem. They did not know Job’s problem because they did not know themselves, they did not know Job, and they did not know God. Likewise, Job did not know himself, nor did he know God.  But, don’t be too proud because you and I also have the same problem Job had. Learn about that problem in this excellent teaching.
