• This whole teaching on spiritual warfare was an awakening for me and my walk with the Lord. Knowing there is always a battle to be had in the spiritual realm makes me so much more eager to pray and be in communion with God. I loved how hard Dr. Wise drove home the importance of powerful consistent prayer. In my own life I know I lack in this area…[Read more]

  • Spiritual warfare lesson 2

    Loved his bumble bee illustration. He keeps coming back to how everything was designed for the glorification of God which is awesome. I think that’s a great filter for our daily lives. Is what I’m doing glorifying God.

  • Chapter 8

    Israel was the sons of the Kingdom because God chose them and promised to bless them. When Israel rejected Him, He gave their blessing to someone else. This was the old covenant with the nation of Israel.

    Jesus addressed himself to the individual. His terms were a relationship based on a decision of faith. The family unit was no…[Read more]

  • Lesson 4. Liked how he talked about the different world views people had and how it affected prophecy back then. I’m glad we have to bible as the truth to backup everything we believe in.

  • Lesson 8

    I got really excited and encouraged when he started talking about how The kingdom of God is here through us since we are in Christ! Awesome to think about the life we have been given through Him.

  • I really like whenever he talks about Jesus talking about himself coming back. I can’t wait for that awesome day

  • I like the way he ended it too because I always wanna be prepared and ready for when he comes back!

    Ch 6

    I like what Ed said about how we don’t forgive like we should. Totes true. It’s easy to just go through life and not pay close attention to it. The standard that it kept going back to was eye opening and made me really thankful for Jesus and everything he’s done because without him there’s no way we could get anywhere close to that kind of…[Read more]

    Biblical prophecy 1 lesson 6

    I liked what he said about how Moses said in Deuteronomy “here I’m giving you life and prosperity or death and adversity, choose life”. It’s sad that it seems so simple but they chose death. I think that still partly true today. I know I want the life God has called me to but sometimes it’s easy to stray off in other…[Read more]

    Totes on what Doug said about seeing the evidence like shooting a gun and hitting a target, seeing how perfect God tied everything together back then is so comforting to think about what is still to come.

    Lesson 5

    This really helped me see the bigger picture and put me in awe at how God pulls his plan together. Literally perfection. He is God I’m not that surprised ha. Very comforting to see his plan back then and think what he’s going to do when Jesus comes back!

    Don’t see any other comments on 5 yet guess I’ll have to come back.

    I never thought about the parables that much so this chapter was a great read. Learning about Gods kingdom and realizing how it’s somewhat here now is a great encouragement for me. I like what dad Doerfel said about the comfort it brings us. Like Tj I’m always excited to see God come in his glory and bring the age to come and the kingdom to its fullness

  • bendoerfel replied to the topic The Kingdom of God in the forum Vine Track 2 years, 1 month ago

    Steve has always talked about satan being rendered powerless at the cross but I’m now fully understanding what he meant. I’m so thankful for Gods gift to us of kingdom blessings in this age! Reading more about how the kingdom is already partially here gives me chills. I’ve always wondered why we don’t see demons a lot, maybe they aren’t in this…[Read more]

  • I have always wondered ways to determine false prophets and now I know. Thank you lesson 3! Liked his points about absolute truth and how freedom of speech in America can be crazy with “true for you but not for me”.

  • Interesting how one of the first thing he says in lesson 2 is to make sure we don’t listen to prophets from pagans.
    I like when he says how Moses knew God face to face and his relationship with God was the reason he was such a great prophet. Moses was so swaggered out everyone says “…Moses and the prophets” what a title!

    To tjs comment.. He…[Read more]

    Really liking this book. When it talks about satan being the god of this age it really makes me think hard. Makes me wonder what Gods up to in his eternal plan if that makes sense. Trying to understand how the kingdom is slightly here now but not fully and will be someday is easy to understand but also hard. The pieces that we get of the kingdom…[Read more]

  • I liked how he talks about prophets of Israel encouraging the people when they did do what God wanted. the day of Pentecost starting the prophecy of Joel is very interesting. This was awesome. “Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be ful…[Read more]

    I am at a loss for words after reading this chapter. I’ve never even thought twice about the meaning of the kingdom of God until now. I’m amazed and in aw at the complexity of the kingdom of God and very excited to keep learning more about it!
