The Fourth Philosophy: (THE ZEALOTS)
      In our first lesson we sketched out some of the characteristics of the JEWISH FREEDOM MOVEMENT in the time of Jesus. They would eventually come to be kown as the ZEALOTS, but the movement itself developed greatly from the time of the Galileans (Judas of Galilee) until they fled to MASADA and took their own lives. The philosophies of Judaism most im

THE HEIRS (A Brief Look at Church Leaders Before 135 CE)
      According to Dr. Ron Moseley of the American Institute for Holy Land Studies, the first fifteen bishops (presidents) of the Church at Jerusalem were relatives of Jesus. All of whom are of Hebrew descent, and according to Eusebius was 'to have received the knowledge of Christ in purity, so that they were approved by those who were able to judge of s

THE Jewish Freedom Movement
      Merton Hengel in his book "the Zealots" sheds some light on the scene in the time of Jesus through the works of Josephus and others concerning the unrest that existed in the area of Galilee and other places. As far as I know, the term "Zealot" is first mentioned in the New Testament Gospels. It is found first here before any other writings. Simon t

The Law of Sin
      The law of sin is the law that governs the sin nature. It is in our members (Romans 7:23). The law of God is the law that governs the born again nature and it is resident in our 'inward man' (Romans 7:22). The law of the Spirit in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). The law of sin is a mechanism that causes one

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) By Robert Wurtz II Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) Part 2 By Robert Wurtz II Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. (Romans 2:1) Romans Chapter two begins with a rebuke against those who are se

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) Part 3 By Robert Wurtz II What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God fo

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) Part 4 By Robert Wurtz II What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) Part 6 By Robert Wurtz II What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we a

The New Covenant Part I (The Sign of Circumcision)
      Abrahamic Faith Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. This is Abrahamic faith in a nutshell. We as born again believers are of the true circumcision because we walk in the steps of faithful Abraham which he walked- being yet uncircumcised

The New Covenant Part II (The Conscience)
      This brings us to the New Covenant. Hebrews 8:10-13 (See also Jeremiah 31:33) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every ma

The New Covenant Part III ('States' of the Conscience)
      The GUILTY conscience is a primary obstacle to us coming to the throne of grace or to do His service (Hebrews 9:9). The blood of bulls and of goats could not take away sins- nor did it have the power to PURGE the conscience of its guilt. For this cause of a guilty conscience- people under the Law lived their whole lives in fear of death (Hebrews 2:

      CHAPTER 19 THE NEXT GREAT AWAKENING (Part 1 Confession of Sin) Deep Slumber Multitudes of Christians today are asleep to their own personal spiritual condition. They are content with their walk with him as if they were in no real need to be revived. Many point to the horrible sins of our nation and the Church, but never stop to see their o

      CHAPTER 20 THE NEXT GREAT AWAKENING (Part 2 Consecration) The Power of Holiness For the last 250 years God has been sending revivals to our nation every 50 years in order to have for Himself a nation that demonstrates the working of God in the earth. God Almighty raised this nation to be what it is. But America has backslidden. It has backs

The Oral Law (Part 1)
      For fundamentalist Christians the written word of God is the final authority in all matters of life and doctrine. The WRITTEN word of God is infallible and immutable. The 66 books of the biblical canon have been closed definitively since Jerome completed the Latin Vulgate in 405. Before that in January 7, 367 Athanasius bishop of Alexandria wrote,

The Oral Law (Part 2)
      There are a multitude of arguments that can be presented that refute the authenticity of the Oral Law, but perhaps the most practical one I have come up with is that the thing which the Children of Israel was legally bound to was the written covenant that was written down, rehearsed and agreed upon by the people, and finally the covenant was sealed

      THE OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY GHOST (Part 3) By Robert Wurtz II Convincing the World of Judgment to Come John 16:8 tells us that when the Holy Spirit is come He will reprove the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. In our first lesson we looked at the Holy Spirit working to bring Holy Ghost conviction. In the second lesson we looked at ho

      THE NARROW ROAD TO SALVATION (Revisiting the Book of Romans) Part 5 By Robert Wurtz II Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: kn

      The Seven Fundamentals of Spiritual Growth (The First Requirement) By Robert Wurtz II When it comes to spiritual growth there are seven fundamentals that are required for success. The need for spiritual growth arises from the biblical mandate to love the LORD your God with all your heart, mind, and strength and your neighbor as yourselves.

      The Seven Fundamentals of Spiritual Growth (The Second Requirement) By Robert Wurtz II Of all of the substances on the earth, none are more essential for sustaining life than water. Water is irreplaceable. For us as believers, the Holy Spirit is that water. Many times in Scripture the Holy Spirit is referred to metaphorically with water. Th
