The #1 ministry we study with is The Shepherd Chapel and Dr Arnold Murray. Chapter by chapter, verse by verse, line upon line, precept upon precept. Here is his answer to critics page. Of course you don’t want to follow one single ministry because that would seem cult-like (study for ourselves as good Bereans). It is just that he does the best job of teaching what can be confusing subjects. He has a spiritual gift for it.
This biblestudy site are students of The Shepherd’s Chapel. They have many good studies like ‘What really happened in the Garden’, ‘How old is the earth’, ect that much of Christianity gets wrong.
The original chapter by chapter guy was J Vernon McGee, long since passed into eternity, but his work lives on. Another good verse-by-verse guy is Les Feldick Ministries. I believe Les to be wrong on the WHO IS ISRAEL question however, otherwise he’s pretty solid.
Here is an opinion from a guy who reviews things for a living. He doesn’t seem like an overly religious person. Average people can just sense that Dr Murray is the real deal. It is the nit-picking, Pharisee, know-it-all’s who like to knock him.
At one time you could find lots and lots of Shepherds Chapel studies on Youtube uploaded by individuals. My plan for this page was going to be to link to a lot of those studies. Dr Murray has since requested that everybody take down their Youtube videos. I feel this is very unfortunate. Youtube was a great resource. I do not know his reasons for requesting this, but I’m sure they are good.
This does however stress probably THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of Prepping. Storing up the WORD. In your heart, on your ipod, on your harddrive, and a physical library. We may not have a free internet much longer. It could disappear overnight. We should not count on it always being there and having easy access to bible studies.
It is now a goal of mine to purchase the entire Shepherds Chapel Library on physical audio CD’s and DVD’s to have as an endtime resource for a Home Church. In the event of an EMP, ipods and harddrives may be wiped out. It may also be a good idea to have a laptop specifically dedicated to storing up bible teachings. Load up the memory, and then stick it in an EMP-proof bag or box. This very well may be THE MOST IMPORTANT Prepping item.
Here is another way you could begin to build your library. This is a friend of mine (Praise Yahshua on FB) who has offered the use of his library. You can download files from here.
I would ask that if you do so, just remember to send Shepherds Chapel a donation. We need to give where we are being taught. I would recommend ordering teachings yourself, and supplementing with a resource like this. We do not want to be Moochers. Unless of course you are very low on money. That would be understandable.
