Bible Study
by Jon Bowles
Overcoming Satan Philadelphia Part 3
given Wales 19th October 2002
The bible study is part of a series on Philadelphia, and examines how Philadelphia exists when Satan comes down having great wrath, and will direct that wrath against the Church. It examines the different names of this serpent of old, the Devil and Satan, found within the names used, and shows how a large part of the end time deception comes through his actions as the Devil (or slanderer) against the Church. Scripture plainly tells us how to overcome this -- through the blood of the lamb -- and apply it to both our own sins, and also the forgiveness of others within the Church. This is part of what makes God's people part of Philadelphia (the era of brotherly love) (10.3 Mb)

Sermon
by Jon Bowles
What is an Apostle.
given Modesto California 13th April 2002
The sermon points out that "one sent" (the meaning of the Greek word "apostle") carries with it many vital things: Such a person was sent by God, not man (Gal 1:1), and sent for a specific reason -- to lay foundations within the Church of God (Eph 2:20). Such foundations imply illumination to the Truth for the first time (Rom 15:20) and must remain after an apostle's death (2Pet 1:15), as they were actually laid by Christ through him -- not by the man himself (1Cor 3:10-11, 4:16). (7.9 Mb)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
