Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. Today we going to continue our discussion on the Judgment Seat of Christ by studying 1 Corinthians chapter 3. Many believers used verses 12-15 of this passage to describe the details of the Judgment Seat of Christ that Christians stand before just after the catching away (rapture). A detailed study of the entire chapter (in context) reveals that this commonly held concept is a false doctrine. Join me in this video as we study 1 Corinthians 3 in context and compare it with other scriptures.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. Today we going to discuss the Judgment Seat of Christ. Many believers call this the Bema Seat Judgment, due to the Greek term “bema” found in Romans 14:10 and 2 Corinthians 5:10. These are the two main passages that actually mention the phrase “judgment seat of Christ.” They are quoted below:
Romans 14:10 (KJV) But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:10 (KJV) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Most believers think that the Judgment Seat of Christ (Bema Seat Judgment) is a judgment that believers will face some time after the rapture. In this judgment, believers’ sin will not be judged. Instead, the works that they did for Christ will be judged, and they will receive rewards based on the merit of these works. In contrast to this, most believers think that the White Throne Judgment is a judgment that will take place just after the Millennium (as shown in Revelation 20). Only unbelievers will face this judgment, and their sin will be judged. Then God will reveal that their names are not in the Book of Life, and they will be cast into the Lake of Fire. The main focus of this study is to determine whether or not these beliefs are scriptural. Let’s examine what the King James Bible has to say about this doctrine together in this video study.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. As we continue our series on salvation, we are going to spend some time studying several of the Psalms. David had many enemies. He faced many trials. Through it all he trusted in God to deliver him. David called on God throughout his life to defend him. He also trusted God to deliver his soul from death in the resurrection. David even looked forward to the hope of glory. Join me in this video as we conduct a verse-by-verse study of Psalm 3, and touch on each of these points.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. As we continue our series on salvation, we are going to spend some time studying several of the Psalms. A word study on salvation shows that there are 63 verses that mention the word throughout the Psalms. This is by far, more occurrences than any other book of the Bible. Studying the context of how this word is used within the Psalms will help to shed light on its Biblical meaning. Join me in this video as we conduct a verse-by-verse study of Psalm 1.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 says, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” I was reminded of this passage recently while watching two of Pastor Charles Lawson’s sermons. The sermons are entitled: For This Generation and Imminent and Shouting in the Valley.
My intention is not to label Pastor Lawson as a liar or heretic. The true intent of this teaching is to equip fellow believers with the tools necessary for discerning between true and false statements within sermons. As King James Bible Believer, the King James Bible is our final authority when determining truth. We need to regularly study the Bible under the leading and guidance of the Holy Ghost, so that the Holy Ghost can quicken the truth of the word in our minds. When statements are made within a sermon that causes a check in our spirit, we need to take the time to compare those statements against the truth of the word. In this video, I compare several statements made in the above-mentioned videos against the truth of the word. Please join me in the video, as we allow the Spirit of truth to guide us into all truth (John 16:13).
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. John 17:3 says, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” Knowing God is the key to eternal life, so it must be pretty important. What does this phrase “knowing God” really mean? Adam and Eve knew God in the Garden of Eden, but that was lost when they sought their own knowledge of good and evil. As we seek to know God more we become transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2), and conformed to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29). This is the process of sanctification, and I is a key component of knowing God. For more on this topic, please join me in this video study.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. This video is the beginning of a series studying the topic of salvation. Today we are going to study the first mention of the word salvation in the Bible. This study will uncover the fact that the first mention of salvation is connected to the tribe of Dan. We will study several significant aspects of the birth of Dan and his life. We will also study the history and future of the tribe. Please join me in this video study as we go deeper into this topic.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. In this video, we are going to complete our study in rightly dividing the book of Hebrews. We have refuted the points made by Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer in his book One Book Rightly Divided. Now we will conduct a brief overview of each chapter of Hebrews, and highlight the verses that shed light on the books dispensational application. Please join me in this important dispensational study.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. In this video, we are going to attempt to continue our study in rightly dividing the book of Hebrews. We left off at the five points that Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer was about to make to prove why Hebrews does not apply to our dispensation (the Church age). Let’s study these five points in One Book Rightly Divided and compare them with the truth we find in the Bible. Please join me in this important dispensational study.
Hi, I’m Ray Melograne and this is another Real Life video. In this video, we are going to attempt to rightly divide the book of Hebrews. As I have mentioned before, I believe in the principals of dispensationalism, but I also believe that those principals are taken too far by many King James Bible Believers. One example of this is the classification of a book of the Bible to be not dispensational for us based on poor contextual evidence. In these cases, the main evidence is usually the fact that the book was written to the Jews, and that it contains information that does not line up with a doctrine the classifying individual holds to be true. This, however, is a backward formula for classifying a book dispensationally. One cannot classify scripture based on presumed doctrine. The individual then runs the risk of validating false doctrine by twisting scripture. Instead, a thorough study of the book’s context should be conducted, comparing it to other portions of scripture.
I will again be quoting from Dr. Douglas D. Stauffer’s book, One Book Rightly Divided while presenting my case. In this video, I will be examining what Dr. Stauffer believes about the book of Hebrews and how it should be categorized dispensationally. In this part 1, we will be focusing on the topic of who the book was written to, and who wrote it. There is a large debate over whether or not Paul wrote the book of Hebrews. We will examine the evidence Dr. Stauffer presents against Paul’s authorship and other evidence that supports his authorship. Please join me in this important dispensational study.
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (AKJV).” John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent (AKJV).” Real Life is a King James Bible believing ministry that endeavors to teach the true spiritual meaning of the terms “life” and “eternal life.” Understanding these spiritual terms should have a profound impact on our pursuit of the knowledge of God. Through personal study of the Bible and development of our personal relationship with God, believers have the opportunity to pursue eternal life.
