One of the things I’m doing for 2016 is sharing the Gospel to the unbeliever. I am so thankful that I was reunited with the teaching of Chuck Missler as I am taking a journey with him on the study of Genesis as my bible study starting point for 2016. When you really delve into his teaching Revelation is a good starting point for a bible study lesson as well. Everything that begins in Genesis ends with Revelation. Everything that ends with Revelation begins with Genesis. I find that fascinating hearing from Pastor Chuck. He has a style of teaching like no other and he is one of my fave five of preachers. I thank the Holy Spirit for directing me to his teaching once again. I say again, as I listen to him some years ago back in 2010 or maybe earlier and I didn’t complete that study as I remember but one of my goals in 2016 is to complete this study and wait to see if I am prompt to continue in the rest of his books by the Holy Spirit. I pray that I will as he is a preacher for preachers I’m sure. I appreciate him sharing his knowledge and insight of the bible as he is is no frills kind of preacher and keeps it real and interesting (esp. the history of the book). Pastor Chuck is not afraid of a challenge when it comes to the non-believer to tries to discredit the bible. He puts anyone who tries to shame; no wonder the many atheist turns to Christianity. Pastor Chuck teaching is one of the best bible teachers that I enjoy listening to. I can see so clear how he can change a harden heart to convert. Most of all he will tell you He takes no credit but he gives God all he Glory unquestionable. He is such character for me ( He has a certain style) as being very humble and he believes in what he teaches. Charles “Chuck” Missler is an author, evangelical Christian, Bible teacher, engineer, and former businessman. He is the founder of the Koinonia House ministry based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. His caviler style of teaching for me makes you want to wish you were directly in his class but I thank God that it was recorded to be shared and his teaching makes you feel you are indeed in his class. I love how his teaching is applicable for these days and times now. As for me my brain couldn’t retain it all at once (best description I can explain) For I couldn’t hear one tape only once I had to go back several times before going to the next tape and each time I heard something new or something I missed. Anyone that is able to get hold of his teaching be aware that you will be on a journey like never before. I find that you must be hungry and thirsty when you come to his teaching no matter where you are in your walk in Christianity. I believe this is for the layman as well as the five fold ministry. The concept of the five-fold ministry comes from Ephesians 4:11, “It was he who gave some to be (1) apostles, some to be (2) prophets, some to be (3) evangelists, and some to be (4) pastors and (5) teachers.” Primarily as a result of this verse, some believe God has restored, or is restoring, the offices of apostle and prophet in the church today. Ephesians 4:12-13 tells us that the purpose of the five-fold ministry is, “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” So, since the body of Christ definitely is not built up to unity in the faith and has not attained to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ, the thinking goes, the offices of apostle and prophet must still be in effect. Luke 24:13-31. There were so many nuggets in the study of Genesis that makes me want more researching on my own as I like to do on my own or to find out what God is saying directly to me. I am so happy that God planted in my heart sometime ago that what I learn is not just for me but to be shared for someone to find Jesus. This is what I plan to do for 2016.
