                                THAT RESULT IN A LIFE OF JOY, PEACE AND VICTORY!  

HERE'S ANOTHER LIFE PRINCIPLE EXPLAINED BY DR. THOMAS Q. ROBBINS

"IF I'M NOT LISTENING, THEN... I'M NOT HEARING" Luke 9:28-36

THE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE IN THIS LESSON:  To listen well is the most rigorous, concentrating act in which we ever engage.  It’s an investment of our very being.  God speaks through many different methods -- loved ones, preachers, friends, teachers, prayer, printed words, experiences.  And to listen we must not be speaking or thinking of some distracting idea or focus on some sort of noise.

  BIBLE STUDY FOR JANUARY 6-12, 2019       Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins,  Teacher

          The subject of the Come and See Bible study class today is the experience of Peter James and John seeing Jesus temporarily changed into what is called His glorified spiritual body.  The Transfiguration is a most extraordinary event and a mind-boggling experience for Peter, James and John. 

          Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins show us in this lesson how important it to understand the Identification experiences of Jesus – the times when God Himself declared who Jesus was.  At Jesus’ public baptism by John the Baptizer, God affirmed who Jesus was.  In this second incident, Jesus took three of his disciples with him.  

          There were several amazing things that transpired during the Transfiguration.  Why is it that the disciples saw Moses and Elijah with Jesus?  And what is the significance of the brilliance of light and then the moving in of a dense cloud?  Dr. Robbins speaks to these questions and shows their importance to us personally then spends most of his time with the command that is given to the Church and to us as followers.      

            Most likely you agreed with Dr Robbins when you hear him say that “listening” is the most difficult part of our life.  Isn’t it helpful to be reminded that to be a good, an effective listener we have to be ‘invested’ in the person we are listening to?  That is so right! 

           Good listening involves hearing what is spoken, paying attention to what is not spoken, watching body language.  To listen well is the most rigorous, concentrating act in which we ever engage.  It’s an investment of our very being.  God speaks through many different methods -- loved ones, preachers, friends, teachers, prayer, printed words, experiences.  And to listen we must not be speaking or thinking of some distracting idea or focus on some sort of noise.  This lesson is based on Luke, chapter 9, verses 28-36, and titled "IF I’M NOT HEARING….  I’M NOT LISTENING.”

Something To Consider

Scripture makes an incredible assertion: "God lives in those who confess that Jesus is the Son of God and those who confess him live in God."  You mean to tell me that "confessing that one believes that God lives in us and we live in God" is all it takes?   That doesn't make sense!  It just doesn't compute in my 21st Century world!  Do you know why you think that?   It’s impossible to accept this beautiful truth if you only use logic or reason.  Such truth can only can be accepted and believed -- made real -- through simple faith.   (I John 4:16)   -Thomas Q
