Dealing with Rebellion Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. The first rebellion was when Satan tried to exalt himself above God. Satan rebelled against God because he was filled with pride. King Uzziah was a great king for almost 52 years. As long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. Let every soul be subject unto the higher power. Every person is to be subject to the governing authority over them. There are FIVE spheres of Human Authority: Legitimate state authority over its citizens. Legitimate parental authority over their children. Legitimate authority of husbands over their wives.

Bible Text: Ezra 9 |

I would like to expand on a couple of points that we stressed last week in the area of separation. Our text passage last week in Ezra 9 and 10 dealt with the concept of separation for the nation of Israel. They were God’s chosen people, and in Exodus 34 and Leviticus 7, they were given very specific instructions about intermarriage with heathen nations. There are three Scriptural distinctions that I would like to expand upon in this area of separation. I believe this will help you in your study of Scripture. You must then define the

John Newton’s description of himself: "At this period," he writes, "my temper and conduct were exceeding various. At school, or soon after, I had little concern about religion, and easily received very ill impressions. But I was often disturbed with convictions. From a child I was fond of reading… I began to pray, to read the Scriptures, and to keep a sort of diary. I was, presently, religious in my own eyes; but, alas, this seeming goodness had no solid foundation, but passed away like a morning cloud, or an early dew! I was soon weary, gradually gave it

Bible Text: Micah 6:6-8 |

What the Bible Says is Real Religion Martin Luther said the following, “The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.” I. False religion says that we need to earn God’s favor (Micah 6:6-7) In this first section of Micah’s message to the children of Israel, he addresses the veneer of religion which they had. Outward deeds (Luke 11:37-41) Sacrificial giving (Isaiah 1:5-15) Self denial (1 Corinthians) II. Real Religion says that we need to accept God’s formula (Micah 6:8) Payment made – do justly - become justified (Psalm 32:1-2; Rom. 4:1-8) Penalty released

A study of the Compassion of Christ Introduction:  I would like to consider what the Bible has to say about compassion. The life of Christ is categorized by many events, parables and miracles.
