The Mind of the Spirit

The mind of the Spirit is something that must develop inside of us according to Paul in Romans 8. For our guest, Ben Brinkerhoff, this was something he had to learn through the experiences of life. Join Tim and Ben as they talk about his discoveries in how to set the mind on the things of the Spirit and ultimately have the Spirit of God dwelling in you.

Key verse: “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” (Romans 8:6)

The Ages of the Spirit

In this episode of the Essential Bible Studies Podcast, hosts Jay Mayock and Tim Young take a big picture look at the work of the Holy Spirit through the ages of time. There have been some hallmark epochs were the miracles, signs and wonders were off the charts. What does this mean in how the Holy Spirit works today?

Key Verse:

“Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:8-10)

      1. The gifts (v. 11)
      2. Their purpose (v. 12)

The Spirit of Man

Tom Colby joins Tim Young in our continuing studies on the Spirit by looking at the basics of the spirit in relation to mankind.

Key verse “I said in my heart with regard to the children of man that God is testing them that they may see that they themselves are but beasts.  For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for all is vanity.” Ecclesiastes 3:18-19
