Session 18 “Religious Conflict”
Todays session we have a tough session of the issue of religious conflict. It may surprise you that God hates religion. Jesus had His sharpest condemnations for the religious leaders of His earthly days. Bible teacher Keith McKenzie takes us through Genesis Ch. 4 and the gospel of John to demonstrate this is a root cause of Religious Conflict. Whether it be the Middle East Crisis, Denominations, or flavor of religion. Religion is bad. Below is a list of free resources for the growing Christian. (more…)
Session 17 Abel : A prototype of believers
We contrast the life of believers (Abel) with that of unbelievers (Cain). Abel is a prototype of faith in action. Hebrews, Psalm 51 are in view. Keith discusses the three aspects of salvation, justification, sanctification, and glorification of the saints who are in Christ Jesus. We have attached a list of free resources for the growing Christian .to help you But grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and for ever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 (more…)
Session 16: Genesis 4 Cain & Abel.
In todays session we look at the contrast of Cain and Abel. Scriptures unfold and tell us that these two brothers approached God differently. Cain is a picture of apostates (Jude) and Abel a picture of the faithful. Works vs. Grace and the birth of religion and murder are all in view. We will see in this lesson that Cain is a prototype of the unbeliever. We again have many firsts in this chapter. Free disciple ship course. See the list of links for other free resources to help you grow in grace. (more…)
Session 15 Genesis 3:20-24.
Today we look at the importance of the Hebrew proper names in genealogy have meaning behind the translation we read. Vs. 21 we have doctrines of atonement, substitutionary atonement and clothing all here in this verse. We notice that blood sacrifices are found around the world and have their origins here in Genesis 3 & 4. All of this points to the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, Christ the Son of God. We see the scene of Adam and Eve leaving the garden of Eden when they look back we see a picture of the veil of the temple and the mercy seat. This is a wonderful picture prophecy of the work and ministry of Jesus Christ as our High Priest. (more…)
Session 14: We look at the wondrous topic being introduced. “Atonement”. We look at Romans 5 we see the effects of sin has spread to all men. We see the foreshadow of Justification by faith in Jesus shed blood on the cross in how God clothed Adam and Eve. This is applied by faith apart from the law.We see also that the adversary hates the chosen people who would bring forth the Messiah who would crush the enemy. This is manifest today in Anti-Semitism is always a satanic structure of trying to thwart God’s plan. We look at the process of salvation. Justification, sanctification, and glorification are a process that God uses to bring us into fellowship with Him. (more…)
Session 13: Genesis 3 Bible teacher Keith McKenzie looks at the effects of the curse on woman in the garden of Eden. God demonstrates His great love even in how distributes the curses on the woman. God’s grace is set in motion as He uses the woman to crush the enemy. However sin has it’s effect and sorrow has come to the woman until Christ comes back for the Church. We pick up the curses with the woman. We examine how God tailors the judgement to the law of unintended consequences. This is part of Gods reflective policy. Obadiah 1:15 (more…)
Session 12 “Sin in the Camp”
We continue to see how here in Genesis Ch. 3 how sin has it’s tragic effects on our relationship with God, families, and nations. Sin effects nations. We look at Joshua ch. 7 The sin of Achan and how it effected the tiny nation of Israel. God deals with sin. Sin always has consequences. Examinig how Christ reconciled our sins and the sins of the nations at the cross. Isaiah 53 and Phillipians 2, Genesis 3:14-19 God begins to execute judgement on the Serpent, Adam and Eve. The battle of the seeds begins here and doesn’t end until the last book of the bible (Revelation) , Christ vs. antichrist the battle of the ages. (more…)

Session 04 Day 4 & 5 of Creation
Our Cornerstone Discipleship Series day 4 and 5 of Creation out of the Genesis account. Here in Genesis 1:14 we have an interesting Hebrew word (Moed) that is very important to our understanding. This introduction is a key very early to understanding Gods use of patterns and prophecy which is a blessing to the Church. We also look at how it relates to our New Testament understanding. Signs and Seasons play a very large role in the bible so we look at a Hebraic understanding for today. Leviticus 23 expands this concept to Israel.
All this in the first 11 chapters of Genesis is an excellent study for all Christians. God is setting the stage of Redemption. (more…)
