Ole Anthony teaches a Morning Bible Study for our community (and anybody else who drops by) at 7:30 a.m. in our dining area called The Lair. Besides being our founding pastor and oldest elder, Ole is also president of our favorite non-profit, Trinity Foundation Inc.
These podcasts reflect the morning meetings– they’re raw and (mostly) unedited. Previous mp3 files of teachings from 2005 through March 2010 are available here for the time being. We are slowly adding descriptions and scripture references to the list. Thanks for your patience.
Just click the link to play the audio file in your browser or right-click on the link to download the file. (In some of the podcasts the volume is too low — that’s our fault, not yours).
For Ole’s Wednesday night Bible study podcasts, go here.

2 Thess 2: 1 – 4 You (we) are the son of perdition. You see that your mind is the snake, the most evil thing in the universe
1 Thess 4: 13 – 18 Ole still believes the end will happen in his lifetime
1 Thess 5: 1 – 11 Another prediction of the end times
1 Cor 15: 35 Jesus was the last Adam. Do we see that Jesus was the last Adam?
We’re not going to recognize what is to come, just as a seed looks nothing like the tree or end plant / product.
That is the mystery of the end time.
Corruption must put on incorruption. We can’t love the world…it comes only by repentance.

What do we know about the “end times”?
2 Thess 2: 1 – 3 The son of perdition is revealed. He is us.
Isa 61: 1 – 2
Luke 4: 16 – 27 This was the reading for that day in the 3-year cycle. Jesus came to preach the gospel to the poor. That doesn’t just mean a lack of money, it means those who no longer gain satisfaction or sustenance from the world system. Why do we go elsewhere? Our minds are subtle. We will eat dust until we’re tired of eating dust.
If we speak the truth, we will piss off everyone in our lives, just as Jesus did here. He pissed off everybody.

The serpent is a metaphor for the mind.
Gen 3: 14 By thy belly will you be lead
Gen 8: 15 Noah saw Christ in the sacrifices or offerings
v. 21 Man’s imagination of his heart / mind is evil from his youth
If we don’t see our death, we’re not better than the prosperity gospel
Phil 3: 7 v. 8 There’s no merit in losing all things; but rather in no longer giving them any importance.
v. 16 Let us mind the same thing, that’s the only thing that makes us a body.
We have no power because we’re not living by faith alone. We must live by faith alone. It must happen by faith. Christ saw the emptiness of the world as he lived just like you or me, until his figurative death at his baptism. The early Christians turned the world upside down by the cross, martyrdom, etc.

Galatians 2: 15 – 20 We are dead, we don’t exist in God’s eyes and should see ourselves the same way.
1 John 2: 12 – 14 Ole teaches on the progression of believers from the world, through the wilderness, to the promised land, to the mercy seat. The darling infant, the adolescent/teen, young man, and the father position
Gal 2: 20 Only 2 reached the promise out of millions

Matt 6: 9 Hallowed = separated every thing else away but him
Give us this day our daily bread, broken bread
Giants / problems are bread for us
Lead us not into temptation – lead us not inward…it counteracts everything our mind has to offer. Lead us not into being a human, from anything that isn’t in the NOW.
Deliver us from the evil one / deliver us from ego
We never really know what to do, yet we always figure out what to do rather than being on the mercy seat in the eternal NOW.
The preaching of the cross produces death. It doesn’t include thinking up things to do for God.
Discussion about repentance.
Rev 17: 1 – 4 Everything we think is good is an abomination to God.
July 25, 2018
Phil 3: 18 Rejoicing in tribulation
James 1: 1
Phil 4: 1 Rejoice always
Romans 16: 1 – 4
July 24, 2018
Matt 2: 1 – 10 Teaching on the Magi, astrology, true astrology in the star maps. They saw the star and rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
Phil 3: 7 – 21 Whatever is a gain to us is a loss to Christ.
We can only apprehend by repentance.
The only way we will see the mystery is by repentance.

Fear and trembling
Isaiah 66: 1 – 2 poor, contrite and trembleth The gospel is the same and was the same.
Isa 66: 3 – 12 Description of the bride
Phil 2: 5 “Let this mind be in you…” We must continue with him in his temptation. He came to preach to the poor. When we see we are poor, we can hear. Man of us are still trying to get God to bless our flesh.
Work out your own salvation in fear and trembling.
John 16: 1 – 11 The Holy Spirit is convicting all of sin, righteousness, and judgment; but he won’t violate your will. You must see the vanity of your thoughts and repent, perhaps a million times a day. There is no standard way of doing it.
