Lesson For: August 5, 2007 2 Timothy 1:8-9 (NKJV) j k 5Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with 8 i me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us l m with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which n was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, 6 Acts 2:29-39 (NKJV) x “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and 29 y buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had 9 sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the z Christ to sit on his throne, 31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that a b His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, of c 1 d e which we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received f from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear. 34 “For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: g ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, 35 Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’ “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you 36 crucified, both Lord and Christ.” h 37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” i 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus 2 Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to 5 i [Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26; Rom. 1:16]; 2 Tim. 1:12, 16 j 1 Tim. 2:6 k Eph. 3:1; 2 Tim. 1:16 l [Rom. 3:20]; Eph. 2:8, 9 m Rom. 8:28 n Rom. 16:25; Eph. 1:4; Titus 1:2 6 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.

Because it was the work of God. Acts 26:12-18 (NKJV) o “While thus occupied, as I journeyed to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief 12 priests, 13 at midday, O king, along the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me. 14 And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 15 So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this p purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the 2 things which I will yet reveal to you. 17 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the q 3 r s Gentiles, to whom I now send you, 18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to t u light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an v 4 inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’ 8 John 6:44 (NKJV) k l 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 9 j Joel 2:28, 32 k Acts 11:15, 18; Eph. 2:13 7 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.

  • 4. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 What does the Old Testament say on the matter of Effectual Calling ??? Ezekiel 11:19 (NKJV) w x 5 y 19Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, 10 Conversion (faith / repentance) Definition (G.I. Williams, The Westminster Shorter Catechism – For Study Classes): Conversion may be defined as a complete revolution in the mind (or heart, or soul) of man, whereby a sinner turns from all self-esteem and confidence [I like that part] to trust in Christ alone for salvation. REPENTANCE FAITH (Wide Road to Hell) (Narrow way to Heaven) 1) A man must know his 1) A man must know lost condition. what Jesus has done to save sinners. 2) He must have a heart that is broken because 2) He must have a of his sin. heartfelt sense of his personal need of Christ. 3) He must turn from the ways of sin and death. 3) He must turn to Christ and rely upon Him alone for salvation.

  • 5. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 John 1:12 (NKJV) 12 But qas many as received Him, to them He gave the 5right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 12 Then Peter defending God's Grace ... Acts 11:17-18 (NKJV) 17 lIf therefore God gave them the same gift as He gave us when we believed on the Lord Jesus m Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?” 18 When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, n“Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.” 13 Note: From the previous scripture, it is interesting to see that even our repentance comes from God. Acts 2:36-38 (NKJV) 36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” 37 Now when they heard this, hthey were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” 38 Then Peter said to them, i“Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus 2 Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 14 Then Paul speaking of the Corinthians' Repentance ... 2 Corinthians 7:8-12 (NKJV) 8 For even if I made you lsorry with my letter, I do not regret it; mthough I did regret it.

  • 6. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 perceive that the same epistle made you sorry, though only for a while. 9 Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, n that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to o salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For observe this very p thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all q things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter. 12 Therefore, although I wrote to you, I did not r do it for the sake of him who had done the wrong, nor for the sake of him who suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear to you. 15 Once again from the Old Testament ... & the prophet Ezekiel Speaking of the Renewal of Israel .... Ezekiel 36:27-32 (NKJV) 27 I will put My i16Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My j k judgments and do them. 28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be l m My people, and I will be your God. 29 I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the n o grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you. 30 And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the p q nations. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will 5 r loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations. 32 Not for your sake do I do this,” says the Lord GOD, “let it be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!” 17 n 2 Sam. 12:13; Ps. 32:10; Matt. 26:75 o Prov. 17:22 p Eph. 5:11 q 2 Cor. 2:5–11 r 2 Cor. 2:4 15 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.

  • 8. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 Justification Shorter Catechism #33 Justification is an act of God's free grace, wherein he pardoneth all our sins, and accepteth us as righteous in his sight, only for the righteousness of Christ imputed to us, and received by faith alone. Remembering our Key Verse ... Romans 8:30 (NKJV) 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also scalled; whom He called, these He also t u justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. 18 Ephesians 1:7 (NKJV) 7 j19In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to kthe riches of His grace 20 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NKJV) 21 For z21He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become athe righteousness of God in Him. 22 Romans 5:18-21 (NKJV) 18 Therefore, as through 823one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in s Rom. 8:28; 9:24; 1 Cor. 1:9; Gal. 1:6, 15; 5:8; Eph. 1:11; 3:11; 2 Thess. 2:14; [Heb. 9:15; 1 Pet. 2:9; 3:9] t 1 Cor. 6:11; [Gal. 2:16] u John 17:22; Rom. 8:21 18 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.

Lesson For: August 5, 2007 x 9 y condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in z justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. 20 Moreover athe law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace b abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. 24 Galatians 2:16 (NKJV) 16 aknowing that a man is not 9justified by the works of the law but bby faith in Jesus Christ, even c we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. 25 Adoption Shorter Catechism #34 Adoption is an act of God's free grace, whereby we are received into the number, and have a right to all the privileges of the sons of God. 1 John 3:1 (NKJV) a b Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of 1 2 c God!

  • 12. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 Ephesians 4:17-24 (NKJV) 17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should v32no longer walk as 6the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated w from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 xwho, being past feeling, yhave given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by z Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which a grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and b that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. 33 Romans 6:1-6 (NKJV) What shall we say then? a34Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How b c shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were d e baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him f g through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, h even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 iFor if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the j k likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of 1 sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 32 v Eph. 2:2; 4:22 6 NU omits the rest of w Rom. 1:21 x 1 Tim. 4:2 y 1 Pet. 4:3 z Col. 3:8 a [Rom. 12:2; Col. 3:10] b [Rom. 6:4; 7:6; 12:2; 2 Cor. 5:17; Col. 3:10] 33 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.

  • 13. Lesson For: August 5, 2007 35 Death Well, this one should not take too much explanation; we should all have at least a common knowledge of this one (that is at least the fact that it happens to us all, apart from those at Christ's return) ... Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 36 REFER TO: G.I. Williamson's “The Westminster Shorter Catechism”, 2nd ed. Page 174 (Questions about Death) for discussion. Soul (With Christ) Shorter Catechism #37 What benefits do believers receive from Christ at death? The souls of believers are at their death made perfect in holiness (perhaps something we did not realize) and do immediately pass into glory, and their bodies, being still united to Christ (again perhaps not realized), do rest in their graves till the resurrection. Hebrews 12:22-24 (KJV) 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are writtenf37 in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 g And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant , and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 38 Luke 23:39-43 (KJV) 39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 35 The New King James Version. 1996, c1982.
