Lots of Very Important Speaking that Clearly Presents the Apostolic Pattern for Preaching the Gospel to a Lost World!

Rated 5.0 out of 5
August 21, 2020

I had previously listened to these five messages by dear brother Chuck Pike multiple times on Youtube.com, and several years ago I even set up a “Brother Chuck Pike” playlist for my Youtube account. But it was really great to listen to all five of these messages again and some points that I did not catch in earlier years really registered with me this time. So I am deeply thankful that the team at thehistoricfaith.com has decided to include courses containing lessons by dear brother Chuck Pike.

The way this topic is introduced and approached in these five lessons is excellent. Brother Pike challenges his audience in the very first lesson to consider how they would go about convincing someone that Jesus is the Son of God when that person lives in a country where the persecution of Christians is a very real and common occurrence. We have to admit that a lot of the gimmicks we use in Westernized modern “Christian” nations do not work for people in the many countries where being a Christian is very costly and could cost someone their very life. For these people, a truly extraordinary presentation of the gospel message of Jesus Christ is required, but it turns out that this truly extraordinary presentation is exactly the way the apostles and the early Christians presented the gospel! It is so necessary and so refreshing to look away from our modern techniques and go back to the beginning with the apostles.

After the first introductory lesson, the other four lessons are very dense with detail, but they have to be, because a detailed presentation of Jesus Christ as He was prophesied and prefigured throughout the Old Testament is required. Since this is the case, these lessons will continue to reward those who return to them multiple times. Prepare to be amazed at how many places Jesus Christ is prophesied or prefigured throughout the Old Testament Scriptures. And prepare to be amazed at how detailed and rich these prophecies and foreshadowings of Jesus Christ are.

A major positive aspect to this course is that fact that the attached outlines are extremely thorough and detailed. Each message is linked to a very helpful outline that contains all of the points spoken in the message. And this is the very same set of outlines that are available to be downloaded from links to the message on Youtube.com. Many thanks to dear brother Pike for the time he spent putting these outlines together. As an added bonus, attached to the second message in this series is a really excellent article written by dear brother Finny Kuruvilla covering the prophecy of the 62 “weeks” and the 7 “weeks” recorded in Daniel 9:25.

As one who fellowships with a congregation linked to the Restoration Movement, it was comforting to hear an audience that was so receptive and responsive to the messages. While I am used to many “Amens” and “That’s right!” during Bible studies and sermons, the brothers and sisters listening to brother Pike had an enthusiasm that makes our congregation seem extremely tame! My favorite example – In message one brother Pike stated that he was going to set the bar pretty high in these messages, and one brother responds, “C’mon, set it brother! C’mon now!” After brother Pike sets a very high standard, the same brother exclaims, “Love it!” Some dear brothers and sisters here at thehistoricfaith.com may not be used to this, and I know we all have our own backgrounds and comfort levels, but I found the enthusiasm of the audience to be very refreshing and invigorating.

Lastly, as another added bonus, this set of messages includes the story regarding how brother Kuruvilla’s father George came to be a believer in Christ (and a preacher of the gospel) in India. And dear brother George’s testimony ties in directly to the main topic of all these messages.

As a vehicle to cause us to reexamine how we present the gospel to people, and as a very rich and in-depth study of many Messianic prophecies and foreshadowings in the Old Testament, this course is highly, highly, recommended. I rated this course five start out of a possible five.

There were some amazing insight in this course, especially in the first part about Hades. I haven’t found such teachings in any church I have been to, but they are right there in Scripture. The lessons on Dispensationalism and Israel had some repetitions, that’s why I give 4 stars.

The title illustrates my feelings after hearing this message the first time. Makes my heart sad for the many decieved people “out there”. This life vision for men and women brings to mind the verse : and he went forth in the power of the Spirit. Its the only proven wy to face life.

I am very novice in terms with theology, doctrine or such things. That’s why I am very eager to expand my knowledge. This course definitely gave me a good foundation. Praise Jesus for this and for everyone behind this!

Shadows of Christ (Mini Course)

The series focuses on prophecies about the resurrection of Jesus. My hope is that this series of lessons will strengthen the faith of Christians and open their eyes to the importance of the Old Testament. I also hope that these lessons will be useful in helping unbelievers come to faith in Jesus Christ, based on the evidence of the fulfilled prophecies that were written hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.

Expository Teaching Using Early Christian Insights

A church is only as strong as its doctrine. Those who aspire to be teachers, whether for a church office, leadership position on a missionary team, small group, or family devotions, accept a weighty responsibility. Like any important skill, the ability to teach effectively and accurately must be developed. This course draws upon the Septuagint and early Christian sources to offer practical advice for Bible fanatics who want to communicate the truths of God's word (and especially Old Testament connections to Christ). In the last three modules of the course, Chuck Pike will demonstrate how he would teach through three challenging Bible passages.

The Holy Spirit

If you have more confusion than clarity concerning the Holy Spirit, you're not alone. Some groups have treated the Spirit as a license for casting off scriptural authority. Others have reacted by minimizing His role. The result is that teaching about the third person of the Trinity often leaves much to be desired. But Jesus did not intend for His followers to linger in confusion; rather, he wanted them to realize the Spirit's power in their lives. We hope that this course will begin to clarify the Holy Spirit for you: what Jesus taught the disciples about it, how the early Christians thought about it, and how the Holy Spirit is alive today.

Despite the explosion of Christianity throughout the world during the first few centuries after Christ, few Christians today present and defend the story of Jesus using the tactics of the earliest evangelists. In this 5-part series, Chuck Pike demonstrates the time-tested relevance of scriptural proofs for the gospel.
