Bible Teacher Ron Moore continues our study of Revelation with John's first glimpse of the throne room of heaven. As we look through the apostle John's eyes at the majestic sights of God's presence, we'll be reminded of God's glory, holiness and the love He shows us. We'll be encouraged to live our lives today with eternity in mind.
Complacency and apathy are two of the biggest threats to passion and motivation. And when they seep into a believer's life, the result is a tepid lukewarmness. This is the situation the Church in Laodicea found itself in. Join Ron Moore as we look at the dangers of complacency and the ways we can motivate ourselves to a life of passion for Jesus Christ.
If you've ever experienced isolation, either relationally or geographically, you've maybe wondered if anything you do matters on a larger scale. Ron Moore continues our study of Revelation with a look at Jesus' words to the small Church of Philadelphia. As small and isolated as that church was, it still mattered to God and had a significant role to play in the Body of Christ.
The Church at Sardis had it all: comfort, wealth, prestige. Yet they lacked one vital thing. Ron Moore continues our study of Revelation by examining Jesus' letter to this church that was healthy on the outside, but dead on the inside. We'll see how to revitalize our walk with Christ when it starts becoming stagnant.
It's easy enough to identify the truth in the face of outright lies. But what if the truth is mixed with just a little bit extra that makes it seem even better? Bible Teacher Ron Moore takes us to the Book of Revelation and a closer look at Jesus' words to the Church of Thyatira. We'll see how we can avoid mixing truth with fiction in our Christian faith.
Ron Moore takes us Gethsemane to listen in on Jesus' prayer on the night before His crucifixion. Using Jesus' example, we can learn how to approach God in our own prayers. We'll also learn about the most important prayer we can pray. The prayer that lays the foundation for everything God wants to accomplish in our lives.
Romans 8:38 is one of the most often quoted Scriptures when we or loved ones are experiencing heartache. It can be a comfort to hear that God is always at work. Join Bible Teacher Ron Moore as he takes a closer look at this quoted, but often misunderstood verse.
What do you do when you can't shake the question "why"? Bible Teacher Ron Moore takes us to the story of Job, a righteous man who lost everything. By looking at Job's three responses to his tragedy, we'll be encouraged to remain firm in our faith even as the world shakes.
Do you know the God who walks with you down this storm-tossed road? Is He an anchor when pounding waves threaten to batter you into submission? Bible Teacher Ron Moore examines four truths that you can cling to when life is shaken.
Where is God when life's tremors rattle the walls of your world? Does He care? Did He command the earthquake? Will your faith stand or falter? Those are the issues we all battle when pain fractures our heart. Join Bible Teacher Ron Moore as he begins a series showing you how to have an unshakable faith in a shaken world.
As terrible as persecution is, the subtle lure of compromise can present an even greater threat to our witness as Christians. Ron Moore takes us to the Book of Revelation to show how this was true in the Church at Pergamum. We'll see what it takes to avoid the slippery slope of compromise and learn how to stand back up if and when we fall.
Life for Christians in America today is vastly different from life in Smyrna in the first century. But these early Christians set an example we can follow today. Ron Moore shows us four principles from the letter to Smyrna found in the Book of Revelation to help us center our mind on Jesus and our eternal reward no matter what difficulties we are facing today.
The Book of Revelation begins with a message from Jesus to the Church of Ephesus. And the commendation and correction Jesus offers are relevant to the Church today. Ron Moore takes us through this message to Ephesus and helps us see how to maintain our fire for serving God.
As the Book of Revelation gets underway, the author turns our attention to the glorious, resurrected Jesus. Ron Moore helps us see Jesus in this new yet familiar light and shows us how His presence at the end of days will be a comfort to those who believe and terrible to those who don't.
Frightening and confusing are just two of the words often used to describe the Book of Revelation. But what about encouraging and enlightening? Bible Teacher Ron Moore begins a new study on the last book of the Bible by showing how a study of the end times can impact our lives today.
By reading the Bible, we can discern various attributes of God: His power, His mercy, His wrath towards sin. But none of these attributes tell the whole story. As a result, some tend to narrowly define God by only one or two of these attributes. But, as Ron Moore explains, this is dangerous. We'll look at the hidden dangers here, and learn how to appreciate the fullness of God without reducing Him to our own limited definitions.
From the very beginning of Jesus' ministry, He made it clear that His path would be defined by God's plans and not human expectations. It was a path that led to an ignominious death on a cross. And while this would be the final resting place for others, for Jesus, His journey wasn't yet complete. Join Ron Moore for a joyful look at the ultimate victory of Jesus--a victory over death itself and an exciting call to a journey of our own to Jesus' side.
Having walked with Jesus throughout His ministry on Earth, we now walk with Him through His final week. Starting with His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, Ron Moore then takes us through the rest of Jesus' final week--from the encounter with the money-changers at the temple, to His betrayal given in the kiss of a friend. Through each encounter, we'll not only see Jesus in a clearer light but learn how to live a life honoring to Him.
As adults reading the Scriptures, we have a tendency to skim over the "children's stories." But, as Ron Moore points out, if we think we know everything about these events, we need to think again. Such is the case in the story of Jesus' encounter with Zacchaeus. Far from being a cute story of a short man in a tall tree, the story of Zacchaeus provides a powerful and life-changing example of repentance.
Jesus, at one point, describes Himself as the "light of the world." And few people appreciated that description more than the man, blind from birth, who received sight at the healing touch of Jesus. Ron Moore takes us to this miraculous encounter in John 9 and shows us how we can have our own encounter with Jesus. We'll also see what it means to be the light of the world in this day and age.
