We worship using Psalms
1. We talk about what it means to be predestined. And we discuss that we are adopted into the family of God.
2. We discuss God's kind intention of His will, which is what we are after as we study the Bible, and what that means for our lives.
3. We talk about the praise and glory of His grace and how that matters. Grace is always moving us away from ungodliness which is toward God's will in our life.
4. We talk about "in Christ", "in the beloved" and what that means for us. We are no longer a part of the world. Yet we live in it. But He lives in us!
5. We get into specifics about redemption, what it means for the Gospel, and our daily lives. Do we understand salvation correctly?
6. He lavished His love, grace, and forgiveness on us and we are still in amazement! We just need to believe in Him. Put our full weight of trust in Him and have the assurance of the things hoped for.
Join us to see how we can live praiseworthy to God. BTW you can use this bible study with a group if you like.

Ric and Mary Joyner discuss our "pre-loads" of beliefs and ideas, which cause us hindrance in our biblical study. How do we clear out these programmed biases? Our podcast will discuss exactly how we can change our mindsets by beginning our study in Ephesians.
Ephesians Bible Study with Bible Study Company
Computers come with what we in IT call "bloatware." This pre-loaded software, although meant to be helpful, is biased toward the computer maker. However, this pre-load can seriously slow down the performance of a computer. Ric goes through each computer we buy and unchecks the software to prevent it from starting up and causing the computer to slow down. It uses computer resources we need, such as memory, to perform daily tasks. It has to go.
We are similar to a computer. We can come with preloaded software (ideas and beliefs) that include; bias towards how we grew up. For example, Mary was Catholic and had a bias caused by being in the Catholic church. We discuss the particular quirks of growing up in different mindsets. We can say we are almost pre-programmed toward a certain group, denomination, or religion. For example, in charismatic circles, there are all sorts of denominational beliefs and doctrines (pre-loaded software beliefs) that never get sorted out? These "pre-loaded biases" can split churches.
We explore how we can be willing to "clear the deck" and build a new foundation based on proper biblical study patterns. Then we can eventually add back in the beliefs we hold in a particular denomination or doctrines or toss them out for a foundation based on biblical principles. Are you willing to toss out cherished beliefs if they don't match up to Scripture? The disciples were faced with this pre-loaded teaching as well. Christ changed it all. He even said, "don't build your house on the sand, which is man's opinion, but the Rock is Christ.
Ric and Mary Joyner discuss our "pre-loads" and the type of hindrance they can become. How do we clear out these programmed biases? Our podcast will discuss exactly how we can change our mindsets by beginning our study in Ephesians.

Mary and I reviewed this podcast to take notes, and it is the first one we watched through to the entire end. You may say: "Ric, so what, you did the podcast." Fair comment, but strangely we learned from our *own* podcast!
These principles are what we learned from studying Exodus. Exodus is a picture of our Christian walk, according to Dr. Baruch Korman of loveisrael.org.
If so, what truths did we learn?
1. We learned about His Character.
2. We learned His purposes for us and his wonderful intentions.
3. We learned we could depend and lean on Him.
4. That we should not be grumblers in our tents (homes)
5. That tents represent an eternal perspective vs. "being invested" in the world
6. God will meet our needs.
7. Suffering is part of the package because we are in a dying world.
8. Fear is a waste when the God Who parted the Red Sea has our back.
These truths are what Mary and I rewatched and were amazed at what God revealed to us as we looked back. And we all desperately need God's revelation!
We are taking God's word seriously, and it shows by what He shared with us. We became more and more hungry for these truths and principles, and based on proverbs 1; we can see that God wants to speak to us...if we're going to listen.
Please take time to share in the comments what your Exodus is? And give us a "like". Will you join us? Will you please share? Please subscribe.

The Amalekites are coming! We need a new foundation! Mary and Ric continue the podcast/video on what it was like to start to study the Bible together. We all need an Exodus from the world system (Egypt) and Church doctrines we learned and absorbed. But what if these are what "men" have taught us? We need an Exodus in our hearts that includes wanting the will of God in our lives. Christ, Whom we are to follow based on His command to us, IS the Word of God. (John 1).
When the Amalekites attacked the Israelites, we learned a valuable lesson: Satan uses people. And he can use us if we are not careful. Our reactions to people matter. Anytime anger is involved or if people treat you poorly, make sure you worship the Lord rather than reacting.
Ric and Mary discuss how they could obtain a new foundation in Christ by setting aside what they had previously learned and allowed the Lord to lay a new foundation as they studied the Word with a fresh perspective.
If we ask Him in our study to show us His will, He delights in our new attitude, and based on Proverbs 1; we can be sure of this promise that; The God of the Universe will give us revelation. If we are seeking knowledge, then we must ask ourselves: Is it for Him or us? Our mission is to study the Bible to find out how to please the Lord and perpetually ask Him how we can respond to His Word correctly.
Join us for this authentic and candid podcast of our learning to study the Bible.

We are coming up on Passover (Pesach) and Dr. Baruch Korman has done an outstanding video regarding how the Passover is done in Jewish homes. Remember, that to the Jewish people, believing in the blood of the lamb on the doorposts in Egypt, "stopped the destroyer angel". In the action of adding the blood of the lamb to the doorposts, the angel would pass over the house and not cause death to the firstborn. Many Egyptians and Jewish families who saw the mighty signs of God's destruction through 10 plagues, decided to participate and believed God by faith in the blood of the lamb on the door posts. On those households who decided not to participate or rather did not believe God's word, and stubbornly refused, someone died in their household in Egypt. The King of Egypt, "let the Jewish people go" into the wilderness and into God's care. The Jewish nation was born. A nation based on God's word. As Christian, (One who believes and follows Christ and His word) we recognize and remember His blood shed for our sin! That is significant. We can place our sin on Christ by faith, just as the Jewish believers did in the Passover lamb.
As Christ said, "It is finished". That is all of our sins were washed away...if we put our sin on Him and believe in His resurrection. He literally trades us our sin for His righteousness! Doesn't that make you want to live for Him? On top of this wonderful gift, which is good news, Christ sent us the Holy Spirit to make us born again and to write the laws of God on our hearts! WOW! So turn to Him today and believe in His death, for your sin, and believe in His resurrection as our promise of eternal life. Through Christ, our sin problem was "fixed" with God and we have "Peace with God", and we now have the power to walk with our God and please Him. Titus 2:11-12. Make peace with Him today!
Pray this way: "Lord, Jesus there are only two ways to look at life. I can try to be a good person based on what I think is good or some other religion. Or I can place my sin on Your death and resurrection and ask You to forgive my sin which I do. I am so sorry for what I have done and the people I have hurt. I beg you to forgive me. Will you give me a new heart? Please send the Holy Spirit to live in me and give me new birth so I can be a part of Your Kingdom. The thief on the cross had minutes to live and asked You to remember him when You get to Your heavenly Kingdom. Will you do the same for me? Please save me by Your power. Amen."

What is your Exodus? Part 1 discusses Ric and Mary Joyner learning to study the word of God properly and the life-changing impact our lives. Healed marriage, God opening the word in profound ways and His active presence in our lives on a daily basis. Join us for this personal and transforming podcast.
We participated in churches for many years. We can honestly say we did not learn how to properly engage and study the Bible. Is this strange? We think so. But more than not learning how to understand the Word of God caused major problems for us in our lives and marriages, and we looked through nonbiblical filters at the Bible. How is this possible?
Changes in our life created the need for help. We almost lost our marriage. Why wasn't Christianity working for us? What was wrong? Through Dr. Baruch and Rivka Korman, we learned how to study the Bible properly.
Below is a PowerPoint in PDF that you can read the whole story. But we are discussing one of the most neglected aspects of churches which is to show people how to feed themselves with the Bible, and encountering God in a new relationship. He is our Creator. We are made to serve Him. So, why didn't we learn to study His word? Good question.
Join us for a review of the last 6 and half years it took us to learn how to study Exodus.

A heart-stirring conversation of someone facing down a GIANT (cancer). How would you react? What would your decisions be? Is God in our suffering? Is God fair? Finding a relationship with Christ while facing down a Giant! Join us for a memorable podcast and video with my dear friend Erv Puckett.
The urgent knocking on our glass screen door came with a surprise. My neighbor, who walked downcast on the sidewalk occasionally with a colts hat or jersey, was at my door insisting we "talk".
The heat and humidity were oppressive as Florida summers tend to cook. Erv's countenance matched the stickiness and blanket of heat. I asked him if he would like something to drink. Erv had his trademark Mountain Dew and thus said, "no need."
I politely asked how I could help. He said something like this, "All these times you have prayed for me while I walked by, I need to talk to you. I will die from this cancer because there is no cure, and I don't know where I am going when I die?"
We spoke at length. He had gone to church in the past and even been baptized. But here, Erv was someone facing a real giant and unsure of his eternal destiny. Why?
This podcast/video finishes the story. You will be challenged. You may be changed. You may have hope you can share. Pray for Erv. We don't know the ending of the story...YET!

To pray a prayer for a relationship with Christ and to accept His free gift of salvation forgiveness of our sins:
Dear Heavenly Father, (Matt. 6:9) I want a relationship with You...not a religion. I come to You and open my heart. (John 3:16) I will be honest and sincere with You. (John 4) I am running my life and need Your help. (Matt. 6:10) I was made in Your image and I won't be happy until I am in a relationship with you. (Gen. 3) Most of my behavior does not please You. (Romans 3:23) I know I am a sinner, so please forgive my sins because Jesus Christ, Your Son, came to die for me. He is the Lamb of God so I place my sins upon Him, Who died on the cross for my sin. The Lord Jesus Christ was sinless and died in my place so I could have eternal life with you. My relationship starts today! (John 3:16) I believe Jesus Christ is my savior and salvation is a free gift! It cannot be earned through good works. (Eph. 2:8) You did this so that I can be in a relationship with You on earth and for all eternity. (Romans 10:9-13) And, I will forgive those who have sinned or hurt me too, since you have forgiven me. Take away any bitterness or resentment I carry. (Matt. 6:13-14) Please show me and teach me how to live a praiseworthy life on earth to You. (Matt. 6:33, Acts 9 and 10) I know You love me Father, and I want to love You as well and that you have a purpose and plan for my life. Please teach me to pray. (Matt. 6:9) Thank you, God, for saving me to Yourself (Ex. 19:1-8) and making me a new person! (2 Cor. 5:17) In Jesus's name, I pray, Amen! Learn to grow at www.biblestudycompany.com
