Some of you may know or not that I am going to seminary for my Masters's in Biblical Theology at Calvary University (calvary.edu) with Mary's blessing. I think I am 3/4 of the way through. It is hard work. That is why Bible Study Company posts and podcasts are lower. "Why, Ric, are you going to seminary?". "And shouldn't we just study the Bible any way we want?" Calvary University asked me to do a YouTube interview about why I am going to Calvary. It was an honor, and I hope you enjoyed the video. This video should answer, Who, What, When, How? Let me know your thoughts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_qJpgLQYxA

To have a relationship with God versus religion pray this prayer sincerely, and in your own words. 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. (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 name I pray, Amen!

Bible Study: Exodus 6 Miracles happen when God gives us His perspective. Things are about to happen after Moses prays a complaint to God. Join us for this bible study!
In Exodus 5, Moses lays out a complaint to God because Moses felt that no one was listening to Him EVEN though God instructed him to speak a certain way. As Dr. Baruch of Loveisrael.org points out, the unskilled speech Moses mentions is his realization of the Holiness of God and how sinful he is in comparison to the GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. But this knowledge also reveals how helpless Moses is in the face of impossible odds to carry out God's will in Egypt. In effect, Moses's complaint was showing that even though he did what God said to do, it was not working out as Moses and God intended. So Moses thought. Pharaoh's response was exactly as God intended. Hardening of the heart of Pharaoh is stiffening to the voice of God and staying in rebellion.
We can act like this in the face of understanding God's word and the call to change. If you have not turned toward Christ for salvation, do so today! Pray and ask Him to forgive your sin and get in line with His will.
What happens next? Exodus 6 happens. God shows up with His perspective and prophetic plan. Dr. Baruch shares that the future is a done deal in this scripture, and God is going to move and give powerful promises to Moses and REDEEM HIS PEOPLE, even though they acted wickedly. He hears their cries. He hears ours as well. During this time of COVID, call out to Him today.
We need God's perspective. But do we study the bible to gain that perspective? Are we willing to change in the face of finding His viewpoint? This is a crucial question to ask ourselves because it means the difference of one who believes in God...as a head knowledge... or one who desires to be a disciple of Christ...acting on His perspective and word. Who will we be? Join our podcast and video. Please share to help us grow. Bible study company is free to use.

Who and what are the 144,000 of Revelation? Why is it important? Enjoy part 2 of End Times Videos

For example, he discusses many questions people are asking.
Has the end time started?
Some answers will give you comfort, and some will clarify. We look forward to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Many people are hurting from the loss of jobs and lost family members to this virus, and thus we are sad. Not to mention the stress from being quarantined.
Remember by His stripes, you are healed from sin, and now have everlasting life if you place your trust in Christ’s death and resurrection.

Can we know God's will? Yes! But once we find it and act upon it, we are going to experience pushback, which is called Spiritual Warfare. Did you know spiritual warfare can come through people? Let's dive into Exodus 5 and see for ourselves. Join us for this Podcast for Pewsitters
We want to find God's perspective in Scripture. The world is His house and His rules.
Have you ever been in a situation we don't have control over and feel trapped? God wants us to trust Him for redemption by obeying His Words. He may not get us out right away, but the journey will be hard and amazing. We will grow in our faith to obey His word.
In this chapter, Moses and Aaron are in Egypt, and they are speaking to the oppressed Hebrews that are in real trouble and suffering. With Covid 19, we can almost put ourselves there!
God is coming to the rescue in which is a pattern in the gospels.
They were in bondage to the world system in Egypt and when Jesus was on the scene, and Christ said: "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sins is a slave of sin" John 8:34, So there is a spiritual side to bondage and Egypt is a typology of the world. Sin and obeying are themes in Exodus 5. Who will obey, and who will not? But then who is affected by our obedience? We want God in our lives, but are we ready to have our commitment to Him challenged? Let's take this lesson of worshiping Him during hard times and ask God for help during trials.
"If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:31a-32
And we will be free indeed regardless of our circumstances. Join Ric and Mary Joyner for this exciting and fun show.

Look for the link below for Episode 1 of The Chosen
Bible Study Company Interview with Dallas Jenkins of THE CHOSEN TV Series. The first-ever TV series on the life of Jesus Christ that features the Jewish context of Scripture!
Dallas Jenkins, the Creator of The Chosen TV Series, joins Ric and Mary Joyner in "Podcast for Pewsitters" to discuss the show.
We love the introduction. It is a description of repentance!
The music is outstanding!
What brought the TV series to life for Mary and me is the "backstory" of the characters. Scripture is a type of narrative. But to round out the story, we need to "immerse" ourselves in the lives of the characters. Bringing to life the characters is what The Chosen TV series does. What is His will, and how do we please Him is our constant question?
A particular joy is to watch the characters giving up their "lives" to follow Christ and how that impacted their families. Christ chose His disciples in the beginning of His Journey of obedience to the Father. Onward to the cross, He went for our salvation. The disciples did not know what lay around each corner. So, as you watch The Chosen..."Get ready for different!".
Dallas shares about the many difficulties The Chosen experienced to complete the first season, and God met each one. When Dallas shares with us the experiences in his enthusiastic style, we are on the journey with him, so please join us!
Mary and I are both so excited to watch this series continue. We highly recommend it to all of you. We are also so grateful to Dallas Jenkins for honoring Bible Study Company and coming on the Podcast!

Official Statement of The Chosen
WHY A TV SERIES ABOUT JESUS?
We've been making movies for some of the biggest studios in Hollywood for 20 years. But a subject this important shouldn't be entrusted to Hollywood. It needs to be made by us.
Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I am doing a new thing..."
The Chosen is a new thing.
* How it was financed is new: We're the #1 highest crowd-funded media project of all time -- over $10 million from over 19,000 people.
* The content is new: We're the first-ever multi-season show about the life of Christ.
* The way to watch it is new: We're the first show to have our own app that connects directly to your streaming devices. No subscription needed. Just search "The Chosen" where you get apps and download to your phone.
* How it's reaching the world is new: The show is free, but by "paying it forward," you help ensure people around the world can see it -- we're currently in every country.
Welcome to a new thing!

Walking with God will affect our family and relationships. How? When we submit to God's word He begins to work in our lives, to train us and to bring our relationships into covenant with Him.
Once we begin to obey God, He begins to move in our lives and hearts. In the last podcast, we talked about the 7 things that will change in our life. We finished the first 3 points. Here are the next 4.
Exodus 4 Part 3 In Exodus 4 Part 3 we will deal with the other 4 items.
In our next podcast in Exodus 5, we see that people oppose the will of God and that we are to expect this opposition. Join Ric and Mary Joyner for this fun and interesting Scripture.

Do you long for adventure? What if it can happen when you decide to obey God? It can and will because you were made to serve God. He will start you on a journey that will change all areas of your life.
In our previous podcast, we discussed God becoming angry at Moses's unbelief. If we want to make God angry, that is the place to start---unbelief. Denying His existence in this beautifully ordered world is foolish. But once we have asked Christ into our lives, we are going to be confronted with obedience to God's word. We were not prepared for the impact of correctly studying God's word had on our life when we first started. But this lack of understanding makes sense because Moses struggled in the beginning, and so did the disciples. Can we expect anything different? NO!
We understand from Judaism that our life, which is given to us from God, is for the express purpose of worshiping and serving God. But as our Creator, He gives us free will and then invites us to go into service to Him willingly. Rarely do people accept this call. Moses almost didn't. Will we? In these passages, our entire life is being affected by our decision to take this service from God. Sometimes we "compartmentalize" our walk with the Lord into separate focuses. We must not.
So, what are the six things that happened to Moses after he decided to start walking with the Lord?
Join us next week for the other 4 changes! Don't forget to share it with friends! Sharing helps us grow.

Join Ric Joyner of Bible Study Company in a prayer and worship time through King David's Psalm 4. We often read through the Psalms without taking the time to pray them back to the Lord. This practice can show us how to be worshipful and repentant for issues in our own life. Go deep. Get honest with God. Tell Him your scariest fears and what you are struggling with, and even, who. He knows. He wants you to worship Him through the trials. To use current day vernacular; HE'S GOT THIS even if you don't. But fear not He is with you.
