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.

Don’t be conformed to the world / Renewing of our mind
Gal 2:20 Yet not I that live…the goal is to be not spotted by the flesh. We all have to see our death. It’s not true because it (scripture) says it is, it is only when it’s true internally. The test comes via the evil one. Many early believers were martyrs because they were a threat to everyone’s value system or way of life.
Luke 22: 24-30 You are they that continue with me in my temptations – definition of a disciple
Heb 4: 1-16 He (Christ) is the Sabbath; Let us labor to enter into the rest – unbelief is not entering into the rest
1 John 2:12 Little child, teenager, young man, father positions. That is our trek.
The Lord’s Prayer – lead us not inward.
Our journey is from salvation to the mercy seat. Lead us not into temptation.

Warfare of the mind
Matt 13: 18-22
Discussion of where the seed (word) falls on most believers.
Hopefully we who hear the cross will be among those who are the good ground, hear, understand, bear fruit.
What does the Holy Spirit do? Convicts of sin where we don’t believe 100%.
Both Christ and Holy Spirit create an empty pipeline to the Father. Don’t ever think you’ve arrived, it creates a strong wall between you and the Father.

Jesus doesn’t “fix” our minds.
2 Cor 11:1 What does it mean for our mind to be corrupted. The serpent beguiled Eve by causing her to leave innocence (to self awareness).
Matt 18: 3 Except we be converted and become as a little child
Col 1: 20-23 What are wicked works? Self awareness. Salvation to sanctification – only happens through repentance. The only way you can understand the bible is by repentance, by repentance we become as a little child.
Romans 6: 1-4 newness of life
Romans 8: 6-8 If we are giving importance to things that exist in time and space, then we are carnally minded. Now we continue with him in his temptation.
We must abandon self.

Battlefield of the mind – exchanging Gods
Gen 6: 5 Thoughts of the heart only evil continually
2 Cor 10: 1-6 Sanctification is about bringing every thought to the obedience of Christ, but only when we repent. Sanctification doesn’t happen because it says it happens but when we repent.
Confession need to happen in a seder in order to edify others in the seder group. The purpose of a seder is that we are sanctified as a body.
2 Cor 3: 14 – 4:7

Exchanging Gods – all our lives we’ve worshiped ourselves.
Joshua 7: 5-21 What was the sin of Achan?
Joshua 7: 19-26 All Israel stoned him with stones.
1 Cor 15:41 Jesus is the last Adam.

Genesis 6:5 Thoughts of man’s heart are always evil.
Jer 17: 7 The heart of man is deceitful above all things, desperately wicked.
Isa 30: 1-3 The mind is wicked above all things. We are still seduced by wanting to know good and evil. The mind of Christ, he didn’t come so we could all be friends. There must be an exchange of minds.
Isa 31: 1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt.
Ezekiel 36:16 He is sanctified in you when you live by faith. God doesn’t overcome us, except at the end, we must empty. We are the temple.

Romans 12:1 Present yourselves a living sacrifice
1 Cor 6: 9-20 Fornication is going anywhere else but to God for our sustenance and satisfaction
Eph 2: 1-10
Col 2: 20 – 3:11 If our life isn’t manifesting the cross…What is esteemed among men is an abomination to God. Are we esteeming what the human race esteems?
Rev 12: 7-9 Satan’s angels are us.

Romans 8:1 There is no condemnation to them that are IN Christ Jesus. It doesn’t say those whom Christ is in…massive difference.
1 John 2:15 We are on a trek to being “in him.” We replace the evil one as us to him as us – continue in him in his temptation, active abandonment. God can’t occupy where you are.
John 16:1 What is the Holy Spirit doing?
The problem with Christianity is folks think they’ve arrived. As long as this is the case, it’s sure they haven’t.
James 4:4 If we are a friend of the world, the love is God is not in us.
Col 1:12-17 By him (Jesus) all things exist. The purpose of the world is the test to see whether we’ll give importance to the things of the world. Repentance opens the door to God.
