Lots of Very Important Important Speaking that Will Contain Some Unexpected Surprises!
I had previously purchased and listened to all eight of these messages spoken by dear brother Bercot, but I am so very thankful for the fact that these eight messages were grouped together into one course here on The Historic Faith, encouraging me to listen to all eight of them again.
While listening to the messages included in this course, I made the happy discovery that included with each audio message is a Word document containing either an outline or a transcript of the message. Reading through the Word document after listening to each message was a wonderful way to reinforce the content of the message. In fact, by incorporating a slow reading through each of the associated documents, I was finally able to achieve something I never thought I would achieve – I scored 100% the first time around on all of the quizzes for this course. I had previously abandoned all hope of every achieving that milestone.
There are lots of rich details included in these eight messages, and anyone who has not heard these messages before will find themselves frequently challenged and surprised, which I see as a very good thing. Some of the real gems in these messages include:
1) A very clear, and Scripture-based, explanation of the statement that Jesus “descended into Hell” found in the ante-Nicene Apostles’ Creed.
2) Lots of surprises regarding “life after death” if you happen to hold to common view that Christians go right to heaven after they die.
3) The best, most balanced and most Scripture-based explanation that I have ever heard regarding the reference to the number 666 that appears in Revelation 13:18.
4) An explanation of the “Millennialism” held to by many in the Ante-Nicene church that differs greatly from the today’s prevailing Pre-Millennialism.
5) The best, most balanced and most Scripture-based explanation that I have ever heard concerning Paul’s words “all Israel will be saved” found in Romans 12:6.
6) Lots of shocking facts regarding the birth of the modern nation of Israel, including some real surprises regarding the views of many Orthodox Jews toward the modern nation of Israel.
Scattered throughout these eight messages are many exhortations to remain faithful to Kingdom Christianity, and to be careful to not be led astray after fanciful speculations, novel theology, and wild claims unknown to our Lord Jesus Christ, His holy apostles and His early disciples.
This course is highly recommended!
Lots of Very Important Important Speaking Regarding Putting All of Jesus' Words into Practice!
The basic points that are stressed again and again in these six messages are so crucially important – Jesus really meant every word He said! And He intends for His people to put His words into practice! He really does!
Receiving the words of Jesus as simple, innocent, little children is so crucially important, but so difficult in these days where the “hard sayings” of Jesus are either completely ignored, explained away, or dismissed through the use of hypothetical “what if” questions.
Cutting through all of the ways in which modern Christianity is unfaithful to the plain words of Jesus was very helpful to me. And I was very convicted by the fact that dear brother Dean kept coming back to the fact that we do not like Jesus’s plain words because they are hard words, hard to practice. But God’s will for a faithful people whom He can call His own and over whom He can write His own Name is frustrated whenever we accept reasons to not practice what Jesus has clearly taught.
I appreciated the diversity of styles in these messages – personal testimony from dear brother Dean and his dear wife, teaching sessions, and panel Q&A sessions. That kept things very interesting. I also appreciated the short video clips that were inserted into several of the teaching sessions.
This course was a much-needed reminder that the Bible is not primarily a book of theology, but a book to guide our day-by-day living. “The Bible is simple. It really is.” Amen, dear brother Dean. Amen and Amen!
I wish that all who call on the name of Christ would take this course. What a change, if taken with an open heart, the Church would go through. We could possibly have another “Pax Romana”. Just possibly.

Head Covering are required during prayer and prophesying
Great lesson that convinced me women/virgins need to wear a head covering. But I am not convinced that 1 Cor 11 teaches that women MUST wear head coverings in public or they are in sin any more than I believe a man that does wear a hat in public is in sin.
