Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 54 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to be continuing our four-part series in 1 Corinthians 13:7, “(Love) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.” In the first part of this series, we talked about love bearing all things with the ultimate expression of that being Christ bearing our sins on the cross and likewise we...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 52 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House.

As in 1 Corinthians 13:7 CSB, “[7] (Love) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” This is the first of a four-part series love; bears, believes, hopes, endures.

2.51 - Loving Others

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 51 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to talk about loving others. OK, so we talk a lot about love around here, and 1 Corinthians 13:13 has become a life mantra for me at this point, “Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love— but the greatest of these is love.” Since it’s the greatest, it stands to reason that most of our episodes should focus on...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 50 of The Berean Manifesto brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to wrap up our series looking at Jesus in the Old Testament. In the last installment we looked at Paul talking about Christ being the spiritual rock that the Israelites drank from when they were in the desert after leaving Egypt and unpacked the story of Moses striking the rock to bring forth water by including a story...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 49 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to be continuing our series looking at Jesus In The Old Testament. If you missed the last episode we kicked off this series looking at Jesus’ claim recorded in John 8:56 that Abraham had seen the day of Jesus and rejoiced in it tracing that moment back to Genesis 22 where Abraham is stopped by none other than Jesus from...

2.48 - Jesus In The Old Testament Pt. 1

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 48 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 60 minutes or so we are going to talk about Jesus In The Old Testament. Just kidding, but seriously over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to kick off a new series where we look at Jesus In The Old Testament. We can speculate ad nauseum about the presence of Jesus in the Old Testament, and we’d probably even get it right most of the time. But,...

2.47 - Apostasy

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 47 of The Berean Manifesto brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to talk about apostasy. The dictionary defines apostasy as, “the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief.” We’ve talked before about people who have renounced their Christian faith because they feel like they no longer believe. They list off all of their works as evidence that they were at one...

2.46 - The Kingdom Of God

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 46 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to talk about The Kingdom of God. In season 2 episode 44 I presented Galatians 5 in my own words with the ideas and themes presented by Paul updated to reflect The Church of today. However, I didn’t follow through to the end of the chapter leaving out verses 19 to 26. I made this decision at first because Paul says the...

2.45 - Love Your Neighbor

More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 45 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 9 minutes or so we are going to talk about loving our neighbor. We’ve covered this before, but without really needing to say it, this is a topic that can’t be overstated. In Galatians 5:14 Paul wrote, “For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Then the Message translation finishes off the verse with, “That is...

2.44 - Galatians 5

9/22/2019
More
Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 44 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 7 minutes or so we are going to talk about freedom. This episode is probably going to upset some folks. But that’s OK, I don’t answer to man, I know the voice of my Shepherd, I answer to The Holy Spirit and follow His direction. Jesus gave everyone freedom, not just from sin and death, but from every yoke of religion as well. Those of us trying to...

2.43 - Imposters

More
Hello and Welcome to season 2 episode 43 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to take a look at imposters to faith. Acts 19 tells us that the ministry of Paul had caught the attention of all manner of those performing "curious arts." These would be witches, warlocks, and wandering Jewish exorcists. One particular group of wandering exorcists were the seven sons of a Jewish high priest named...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 42 of The Berean Manifesto brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so I am going to read to you from Acts chapters 3 and 4. I had the hardest time figuring out what this episode is supposed to be about, but the only direction I can get from the Holy Spirit is Acts 3 & 4. So I’ll read it to you and you let the Holy Spirit minister to you what He’s trying to say because I’ve got no idea what it is. “Now...

9/1/2019

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 41 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 8 minutes or so we are going to talk about fellowship. I’ve said it before, and this probably won’t be the last time I say it, small groups are the greatest thing to ever happen to the modern church. Whether that takes the form of home groups or adult Sunday school, that one on one intimate interaction and connection, that fellowship, is the...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 40 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and this episode is “The Hem of Grace.” We’re going to start with an event from passages in Matthew 9, Mark 5, and Luke 8. I’ve combined what all three Gospels have to say into one text for you. If you’re following along in one of the three and I say something that isn’t in what your reading then you can flip over to one of the other two to find it. ...When Jesus...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 39 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to be talking about stones; stumbling, mill, and corner. There’s this event in the Gospels where Jesus is riding a donkey into Jerusalem and a very large crowd spread their clothes on the road while others cut palm branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The disciples began to loudly praise God for all the...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 37 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by the Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to finish up our Armor of God series with the final piece of the armor. What is, in my opinion, the most important piece, and when talking about the Armor of God the piece that is left off of most lists; persistence of prayer. It’s Ephesians 6:18 “[18] Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 36 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill, and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to continue our look at the Armor of God with piece number 6 from Ephesians 6, the sword of the Spirit. When I hear the phrase “sword of the Spirit,” it conjures up images of David removing Goliaths head with Goliaths own sword pulled from its sheath in the dry and dusty valley of Elah with the sun beating down and...

Hello and welcome to season 2 episode 35 of The Berean Manifesto, brought to you by The Ekklesian House. This is Pastor Bill and over the next 10 minutes or so we are going to be looking at the fifth piece of the Armor of God from Paul’s list in Ephesians 6 from verse 17, the helmet of salvation. Here in Ephesians 6 isn’t the only time that Paul references the helmet of salvation. In 1 Thessalonians 5:8-10 Paul writes, “[8] But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled and put...
