Context, Context, Context!

4/5/2021
They're on plaques and bumper stickers. They adorn tee shirts. Preachers proclaim them from the pulpit, on television, and the internet. Do these popular verses mean what they say they mean? Most often, they do not. Context is everything but we need to know what that really means. Part Two of Rightly Dividing ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Setting The Stage

3/29/2021
Exegesis? Eisegesis? What are you talking about? If we're going to rightly divide the Word of truth, we need to have some fundamentals for understanding. That means learning a few new words and the basic assumptions made when studying the Bible to help it make sense. Part One of Rightly Dividing. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Noble Minded

3/22/2021
What is it to be noble minded? Luke writes this of the Bereans in Acts 17. Of course, anyone who went to Sunday School knows the answer, right? Lots of churches have Berean in their names. Let's go deeper into these role models. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Be Few

3/15/2021
One of the signs of the end times is becoming apparent. In these days, James' words, "Be few those of you who teach" ring very true. The warning they carry needs to be heeded by all who approach the Word.

Oh, Those Itching Ears!

3/8/2021
False prophets and teachers don't rise up in a vacuum. Far too often, they're just giving the people what they want. Itching ears need to be scratched. (Warning! Fiery Preaching Alert!) ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Ear Ticklers

3/2/2021
It's just what you want to hear. Just listen and get all the warm fuzzies and happy feelings. Just wonderful to walk away assured in your well being and self righteousness. The ticklers of your ears feed you just what you ask for and nothing more. Sleep in their embrace and face the consequences. There's more to this than you think and it's not always easy to recognize. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

The Non-Prophets

2/22/2021
Sometimes they're scruffy and random. More often than not, they look the part. Polished, smooth, and sounding so good that many are deceived by their words. The non-prophets are easy to find and seek their own ends. Danger is in their words. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Duration:00:17:59

Just Missed It!

2/8/2021
Prophetic words are tricky. There are many false prophets out there seeking nothing more than their own gain. However, what happens when it's someone who really is seeking the Lord and to speak His Word and they get it wrong? What if they have an excellent track record and years of faithful ministry? Are they to be in the same category as the false prophets? ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Teachers of The New Faith

2/1/2021
They're so nice. The media and entertainers love them. They're invited to pray and speak by politicians. These are the teachers of the new faith, the pioneers of a culturally acceptable version of Christianity. For them, abortion is a sacred decision and the new progressive world is their cause. Beware the seduction of their teaching and the acceptance of the sin soaked world. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Laodicea: The Lukewarm Church

1/25/2021
Laodicea is the church of Revelation most often preached. It's the favorite of every two-bit revivalist. It's also the one the Western Church is most often compared to in sermons and commentaries. The truth is much deeper than most sermons and there is a good ending to the story of the city. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Philadelphia: The Faithful Church

1/11/2021
We have a lot to learn from Philadelphia. It was one of two that receive praise from Jesus without correction. They stood and persevered and had some power. What was their secret and how did it play out? ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Sardis: The Appearance of Life

1/4/2021
The church of Sardis had a great reputation. They had a name in Sardis as a place God moved. From the outside, they had it all together. That's not how Jesus saw them. He looked past the surface to the heart of the matter. We need to hear what was said the them and understand what it means for much of the modern church. Life is on the line. ©2021 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Thyatira: The Sexually Immoral Church

12/21/2020
Sexual immorality was running rampant. People in the church were worshiping pagan idols. They were all lead astray by a so-called prophetess into the darkness. Modern pastors and teachers are following in her footsteps leading congregations and entire denominations down this road of supporting sexual sin and bowing down to the modern pagan altar. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Pergamum: The Compromised Church

12/14/2020
Pergamum was a tough city to be a follower of Christ. A faithful man of God was martyred. It was a major center of pagan worship and Roman cultural center. They were faithful, mostly. Amongst them were those who compromised to the local culture and encouraged others to do likewise. Others compounded the problem with false doctrine. We have a lot to learn from the Lord and Pergamum for today's church. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Smyrna: Persecuted Yet Faithful

12/7/2020
There's always a remnant. At least, that's the hope. The church at Smyrna was persecuted and poor yet Jesus called them rich. There are some key lessons for us today as we face similar circumstances in the days to come. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Duration:00:34:28

Ephesus: Losing The First Love

11/30/2020
Jesus started out telling the church of Ephesus what they were doing right. They were great on rightly dividing the Word and confronting evil. What they lost in the process was so precious that Jesus called them to repentance or have their lampstand removed. When they lost their first love, they fell. What does this mean for us today? Do we face the same trap? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

The Soul of The Church

11/23/2020
Make no mistake, the critical battle ahead is not for the nation but for the soul of the church. As an introduction to a series on the seven churches of Revelation, we examine the importance of this internal battle and the consequences of going the way of Europe. Even more than the political struggle, this is the true war of our age. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Turn From Their Wicked Ways

11/16/2020
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the people of God are called to "humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways" before seeing healing and restoration. It is true that some sin is blatant within the Body of Christ but the worst of it is subtle and far more attractive than open fleshly passions. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Duration:00:49:30

Heal Their Land

11/9/2020
2 Chronicles 7:14 is one of the most familiar verses in American Christendom. For many years it was the theme for the National Day of Prayer and it always gets quoted heavily each election year. What if I told you we've been applying it wrong? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Rulers, Authorities, and The Follower of Christ

11/2/2020
This is one of the most contentious and angry seasons in history. Christians are often a part of the rage especially aimed at elected officials and candidates. However, we are called to a higher standard. The Word is clear. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries
