Lesson 1

“Prophecy”

August 12, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

  1. The Holy Ghost gives us 6 foundational principles of the doctrine in order (Heb. 6:1-2). Laying on of hands, the work of God, and gifts of the Spirit do not happen until after repentance, faith, and baptisms of water and spirit.

  2. A word of knowledge gives the facts that will not change. A word of wisdom gives how to deal with a situation, giving what to do, how to do, where to do, etc. A prophecy speaks what God is saying.

  3. Often times when prophecy comes forth there is an IF or a SHALL factor -the results and outcomes are conditional upon the response and faith of the hearer (Ezek. 33:8-9, 13-15; 2 Kin. 13:14-19).

  4. We should not assume every word is a word from God. We know prophecy is not from God if the prophecy doesn’t line up with the written Word of God (Deut. 18:20-22). 5.Our gifts differ according to grace, the life God intends for us to have in the fence, and our gifts are used in proportion to faith (Rom. 12:6).

Lesson 2

“Wisdom”

August 26, 2019

Play Video

Key Point

  1. The 6 foundational principles of the doctrine, including laying on of hands, are part of the life of every Christian. Everyone saved and in the body has a spiritual gift and a work to do for God (Heb. 6:1-2; 1 Cor. 12:1-14).

  2. The root of wisdom in Hebrew (chokmah חָכמְהָ S:2451) is the word for mouth (chek ) חֵ S:2441) because wisdom is evident in our mouths and in a word of wisdom God speaks to tell us what, how, where, or when to do.

  3. Solomon’s example shows how God can give wisdom as a plan for how to handle a situation (1 Kin. 3:5-12, 15-27). God gave wisdom to Bezaleel to make things and do his God-given assignment (Ex. 31:3-4). Jesus displayed wisdom in answering and asking questions because wisdom shapes what we do or do not say (Matt. 22:41-46 & Matt. 21:23-27).

  4. The gifts and callings of God being without repentance means that God gives the gifts and He doesn’t change His mind. This does NOT mean we can be used in the gifts without following God’s order and repenting, believing, having both baptisms, and then receiving gifts and working in our calling (Rom. 11:29; James 1:17-18).

Lesson 3

“Wisdom – Part 2”

September 2, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

  1. God’s picture of wisdom is about the mouth and might (Mem מ) because wisdom is about a word that is mighty and comes from God (Chokmah חָכמְהָ S:2451).

  2. Wisdom is the principal thing and the first thing you see in the creation of God — whenever God builds something, He starts off with wisdom (Gen. 1:1; Prov. 4:7; 8:22-23) and to build something that lasts we must build with wisdom too (Prov. 9:1; 14:1; 24:3; Mat. 7:24).

  3. Joseph and Daniel had wisdom from God which they used in their situations (Gen. 41:33, 39; Psa. 105:20-22; Dan. 1:4, 17, 20; 2:12-14, 18).

  4. Wisdom from above, the spiritual wisdom of God, is different than natural wisdom and is received by the Spirit of God (Luke 2:52; 1 Cor. 1:24; 2:9-14; Jam. 3:17-18).

  5. God increased Solomon’s wisdom and knowledge by breathing on him, adding the Hebrew letter Hey ה which relates to the Spirit (2 Chr. 1:9-12).

Lesson 4

“How to be used in your gifts”

September 9, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

  1. Laying on of hands speaks of the works that are done in the New Testament after receiving the baptisms (Heb. 6:1-2; Mat. 9:18; Acts 8:18; 1 Tim. 4:14).

  2. God’s picture of a gift (mattan מַתָּן- S:4976) includes death (Me ת מ) and life (Nun ן); if we’re going to be used in our gift we must be a living sacrifice (Rom. 12:1-2).

  3. The Spirit divides the gifts, giving them as God wants to whom He chooses, and then the gifts are the manifestation or exhibition of the Spirit (1 Cor. 12:7-11).

  4. To be used by God in our gifts more, we must stir up the gift (2 Tim. 1:6), NOT neglect the gift by meditating on these things and giving ourselves wholly to them (1 Tim. 4:14-15), and NOT quench or extinguish the spirit (1 Thess. 5:19).

  5. God’s picture of wisdom is about the mouth and the word for mouth starts off with a fence (S:2451; S:2441). God’s picture of knowledge is about seeing past the door (S:1847; S:3045).

Lesson 5

“The gift of Faith”

September 16, 2019

Play Video

Key Point

1. The gift of faith is different than the measure of faith that God gives everyone and the proportion of faith for use in our gifts (Rom. 12:3, 6).

2. The gift of faith is God’s faith manifested through you so God’s spirit believes through you with His faith. It is not about your faith but it is the faith of God. The faith OF or BY God is different than faith IN God (Acts 3:16; Rom. 3:3; Eph. 3:12).

3. Unbelief stops God from doing a mighty work (Mat. 13:58) but God, the author and finisher of our faith, can help us when our faith is lacking and give us more faith, His faith (Mark 9:20-24; Heb. 12:2).

4. We know we have a gift by the manifestation of the Spirit (the exhibition of the gift in our lives) or by prophecy (1 Cor. 12:7; 1 Tim. 4:14). We also can desire and be zealous of specific spiritual gifts from God (1 Cor. 14:1, 12).

5. There are differences in gifts, administrations, and operations but God can use any gift to accomplish His purpose through us (1 Cor. 12:4-7).

Lesson 6

“The gift of Faith”- PArt 2

September 30, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. Many times the move of God depends on whether or not we believe (Mark 9:17-25; John 11:23-28, 32-40).

2. Whether dealing with the mountain (ex.a demon) in someone else’s life (Matt. 17:16- 20) or the sycamine tree (ex. unforgiveness) in our own life (Luke 17:3-6), we must have faith.

3. All of the gifts are about the Spirit working through us and the gift of faith is about God believing through us; this faith can remove mountains (Mat. 17:18-20; 1 Cor. 13:2).

4. To be profitable servants, we must do more than what is command and go beyond what is expected (Luke 17:7-10; 1 Cor. 12:7; 1 Tim. 4:14-15).

5. We must put the gifts to use by stirring them up, meditating on them, giving ourselves wholly to them, serving in places where there is a need for that gift, and asking God to use us in that gift (1 Tim. 4:14-15; 2 Tim. 1:6; 1 Cor. 14:26-33).

Lesson 7

“Backsliding & Discerning of Spirits”

September 30, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. There are different gifts but it’s the same Spirit. There are different administrations, offices, and functions but the same Lord in charge. There are different operations and ways of doing but the same God working all in all (1 Cor. 12:4-7). 

2. The gifts, administrations, and operations are about God and He should be our focus. God can work however He wants so we should not get caught up in a specific method or person (Mat. 8:16; Luke 4:40; Acts 5:15-16; Acts 19:11-12; Paul – 1 Cor. 2:1 vs. Apollos – Acts 18:24). 

3. Samson and Solomon’s example show us that when people backslide, neglect the gifts, and quench the Spirit (2 Tim. 1:6; 1 Tim. 4:14; 1 Thess. 5:19), even though God doesn’t change His mind (Rom. 11:29; James 1:17), the spirit of God and His gifts no longer operate in their lives the way He used to unless they repent (Judges 16:20-30; Ecc. 2:9-10 “my wisdom” without Hey ה vs. 2 Chr. 1:11-12 God’s wisdom with Hey ה.( 

4. Discerning of spirits lets you know which spirit is operating. This is essential in the church because every spirit is not of God and we do not want to be deceived by and follows signs, miracles, or words when the spirit is off (1 Cor. 12:10; 1 John 4:1; Mat 16:16-19, 21-23; Acts 16:16-18; Mat. 24:4-6, 11; Rev. 13:11-15).

Lesson 8

“Discerning of Spirits”

October 7, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. Discerning of spirits is when the Holy Ghost lets you know which spirit is operating and it can allow you to judge, discern, and differentiate what is actually going on with somebody (1 Cor. 12:10; Mat 16:16-19, 21-23).

2. All spirits are not the Spirit of God or the spirit of the devil — in scripture, there is the spirit of jealousy (Num. 5:14), the spirit of wisdom (Ex. 28:3), the Spirit of truth (John 14:17), the spirit of holiness (Rom. 1:4), the Spirit of life (Rom. 8:2), the spirit of slumber (Rom. 11:8), the spirit of faith (2 Cor. 4:13), a lying spirit (1 Kin. 22:22), etc. A spirit (Ruwach רוּחַ) gives a direction and lead us somewhere; someone can be caught up in something positive (wisdom, holiness, faith) or negative (jealously, slumber, lying) to the point that it controls the person and his or her spirit becomes identified with it.

3. When we talk about spirits, there are three basic categories: the Spirit of God (related to heaven), the spirit of the devil (related to hell), and the spirit of man (Prov. 20:27; Ecc. 3:21; 1 Cor. 2:10-11) which is very common in scripture and in life as we deal with ourselves and other people.

4. Some prophets follow their own spirit (the spirit of man) and prophesy even though they have seen nothing (Ezek. 13:3). When Peter rebuked Jesus and Jesus said, “Get thee behind me, Satan,” Jesus knew that Satan was influencing Peter (in opposing the purpose of God) but Peter’s actions were because he savored the things that “be of men” as he was driven by the spirit of man, thinking like a man, and operating in the logic of a man (Mat. 16:21-23).

5. If someone’s spirit needs to be changed because he or she has allowed something wrong to take primary control, the Word of God is spirit and life (John 6:63) so can counter the problem in one’s

Lesson 9

“Real Prophecy” 

October 21, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. Prophecy is when God speaks through someone because God wants to perform an action. He says it and then He comes to do what He said נ) אב; Amos 3:7).

2. A prophet is only to speak what God commanded him to speak. He should not speak presumptuously but should give the right word from God at the right time for edification, exhortation, comfort, or learning (Deut. 18:20-22; 1 Cor. 14:1-5, 31).

3. Unlike many people called prophets todays, John the Baptist (the greatest prophet other than Jesus) and Jesus Himself did not make their messages about or live lives focused on money, earthly riches, stuff, or luxury (Luke 7:28; Mat. 3:4; Mark 1:6; Luke 21:2-4; Mark 12:42-44).

4. Satan’s focus was money, pride, and stuff (Ezek. 28:1-5, 13-14; Isa. 14:13-14; 1 Tim. 3:6) but to be a servant of God, the focus of our ministries and the theme of our messages cannot be money, stuff, hire, reward, or wages but we must preach just the Word of God and focus on the power of Christ. We cannot be in the will of God and be for hire, putting a price on doing what the master called us to do (Jude 11; Deut. 23:3-4; 2 Kings 5:5, 15-16; Acts 8:18-20; Acts 8:18-20; 1 Cor. 9:16-19; 1 Tim. 6:6-10).

5. True servants of God can get caught up in their emotions and get things wrong (1 Sam. 15:26, 31; 16:1-2, 6; 1 Sam. 27:1; Jer. 28:6) so don’t let your emotions cause you to fail to do what you should spiritually or a speak a wrong word (Num. 20:10-12; Psa. 106:32-33).

Lesson 10

“not For Gain”

OCTOBER 28, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. No one should EVER put a price on the gospel or the Word of God — the ministry is not about money. We should be willing to do what God tells us to do for free and content with what God allows us to have (Mat. 10:8; 1 Tim. 6:6-10).

2. When going out to minister, the hire that “the laborer is worthy of” was a place to lay their head and food to eat, not money (Luke 10:6-7; Mat. 10:8-10).

3. If a man or woman labour in the house of God, especially preaching and teaching, and they are in need, the church should take care of their necessities (1 Tim. 5:3-10, 16-18; 1 Cor. 9:7-10).

4. We must look out for others and help those in need rather than being selfish and focused on ourselves (Eph 4:28; 1 Tim. 5; Zech. 7:4-14; Isa. 58).

Lesson 11

“Prayer & Prophecy”

NOVEMBER 4, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. Do not go to God in prayer with a preconceived notion and your mind made up about what you’re going to do; go to God with an open slate, open to whatever He says and obeying the Word He has given (Jdg. 20:18-28; Num 14:40-45).

2. In order to be used by God we must get ourselves out of the way (Prov. 16:18).

3. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy —prophecy should be about testifying about JESUS CHRIST, not silver and gold that perisheth (Rev. 12:10; 1 Pet. 1:3-7, 9- 11).

Lesson 12

“Power to do His will” 

November 11, 2019

Play Video

Key Points

1. When we’re used in the gifts of the Spirit, it is God’s spirit, power, and hand at work through us (Heb. 6:1-2; 1 Chr. 28:12, 19; Deut. 9:29; 11:2; 1 Cor. 12:4).

2. The Holy Ghost is power in us but we also are endued with power, clothed IN the Spirit with His power all over us so we can be witnesses, work, minister, and be used by God (Luke 24:49; 1 Cor. 12:13; Acts 1:8; Eph. 3:7, 17-21).

3. God works in us the will and the ability to do or perform His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13).

4. When we seek the Lord our shepherd, we should not want (lack) anything that is good for us so we should chase Him, focus on being used by Him, and yield to Him (Psa. 23:1; 34:10; Matt. 6:33; Psa. 47:4).
