  • Lesson 1 - Twisted Reality
    One of the important details concerning the close of this age is given to us in II Thessalonians 2:10 concerning those who do not receive a love of the truth.  Not only are they subject to the deceptions of the enemy, they are also subject to strong delusion from God.  When we receive a love of the truth, we embrace the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, to guide us into all truth and enlighten our understanding.  The Holy Spirit "untwists" our perception of reality received from the fall and continues to speak to us the things of Jesus.

  • Lesson 3 - Seed of the Kingdom
    This lesson begins with the importance of the work of the Holy Spirit today and shows that God's primary purpose deals with the restoration of the Kingdom of God.  We have applied everything to Church and ignored the Kingdom.  However, the Gospels mention the Kingdom of God over a hundred times and mentions the Church only three times and two of those are in the same verse.  Note: the second half of this lesson includes a number of comments from the students about how this affects their understanding of what God is doing in their lives.

  • Lesson 4 - Gospel of the Kingdom
    The gospel of the Kingdom is the end time message according to Jesus.  It is important that we understand what the gospel of the Kingdom is and that we are actually preaching it.  This lesson looks at the gospel according to Jesus and the gospel according to Paul and compares it with the gospel according to the institutional church.  The second half of the class is a discussion about our modern version of the gospel of salvation and its relationship to the gospel of the Kingdom and the question is discussed concerning the possibility that we have created another gospel with a different Jesus than the Jesus of the gospel of the Kingdom.

  • Lesson 5 - Disciples of the Kingdom
    Revelation understanding comes to the disciples of the Lord.  To those who are not disciples, the Lord speaks in parables.  This lesson looks at the necessity of following Jesus as a disciple of the Kingdom and of the King.  The requirements and the cost of being a disciple is discussed along with the difference between being a student and a disciple.  Obedience to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is contrasted with lawlessness.  The shortcoming of our gospel of easy grace is shown when compared to the commands of our Lord Jesus.

  • Lesson 6 - Transition to the Kingdom
    The Church gives us the impression that no commands of law are applicable to us but that we are under grace.  However, Jesus' commands are the laws of the Kingdom of God.  They are written on our heart by the Holy Spirit and are designed to set us free from the law of sin and death.  The Kingdom comes within us and begins to grow in such a manner as to change our character and our conduct.  It is through Kingdom law that the Kingdom of God finds internal expression in us and an external expression to the world.

  • Lesson 7 - Application of Kingdom Law Part 1
    Jesus told us to take His yoke upon us and learn of Him and that His yoke was easy and His burden light.  It may be easy and light but it is still a yoke.  We cannot go our own way if we are disciples of Jesus.  In Matthew chapters 5, 6, and 7 Jesus begins to apply to us the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ, which is meant to set us free from bondage.  As the Kingdom is formed within us it begins to be manifested outwardly in our conduct.  The application of the law of the kingdom within is the law of the spirit of life written on our hearts.  This lesson brings forth the first seven laws of the Kingdom as applied in the sermon on the mount.

  • Lesson 8 - Application of Kingdom Law Part 2
    This lesson continues the previous lesson with the next  laws of the Kingdom as applied in the sermon on the mount.  It also discusses the fact that Gentiles have never had a covenant with God prior to the New Covenant in the blood of Jesus and how the Lord has made the Jew and the Gentile to be one by removing the wall of separation.  God has one people not two.  Jesus is the Shepherd of one flock not two.  This is brought forth as part of the application of the Kingdom of God to us.
