It is one thing to say that I believe in God, and I believe what God's Word says about death, life, Heaven, and Hell.
It is another thing to say that I am so confident of what God says is true that I have no fear of death. In fact, I am ready, or as Paul says, I am groaning, to be absent from this earthly body and present with my Lord and Savior Jesus.
In this lesson Paul describes what it means to walk by faith, and not by sight. This is not a hope so faith, nor does it depend on how hard you believe.
True Biblical faith is a faith built on substance and evidence. Substance for the scientific mind, and evidence for the legal mind.
Listen and learn what it truly means to walk through the shadow of death and to have no fear.

What is going to happen to you the moment after you die?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not the end of your existence. Those that believe this to be true, do so only because they don't want to accept God's absolute truths about right and wrong.
As believers, God has promised us that we will be with Him after our death on earth. This body is a temporary house for our soul and spirit. It is the body that goes into the grave to wait on the resurrection, our soul and spirit go to be with God.
In this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 5:1-5, Paul tells us that God has already prepared a house for our soul and spirit to dwell in.
Listen and sing God's praises as we learn about the wonderful house that God has prepared for us immediately after our death.

It is human nature to trust only those things that we can see, feel or touch.
In this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 4:13-18, Paul is going to challenge the believer on where their focus is. Is it on the current circumstances they find themselves in, or is it on the eternal promises of God's Word?
Does their comfort come from the unseen Jesus, or the physical trappings of religion?
Rejoice and listen as Paul describe how our strength lies in the eternal things that are unseen versus the temporary things that seen.

Jesus tells believers two things about persecution. The first is that you will be persecuted and hated by an unbelieving world. The second is that Christ will provide you victory over that persecution and hatred.
In this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 4:7-12, Paul tells us the secret of living a victorious Christian life. Listen and rejoice as you discover the meaning, and the power, of God working through, and in, you to make you victorious.
