Losing the Bonds of “Truth” (i.e. falsities)

Pastors Jim and Ray uncover some popular “truths” in the modern church, which have resulted in a lukewarm church with no power. They address the word of faith, positional righteousness and other lies that have resulted in a great lack of brokenness and humility and a host of self-oriented sins. Study the scriptures! Get your Bible and be a Berean and be blessed today!

Faith is Substance

Join us today for an interview/discussion with Pastor Ray Greenley and Pastor Jim Kerwin. Have you come to terms who you actually are? Have you actually repented and given yourself fully to Jesus?

What’s the Context? — Part 5

Today Is “Elephant-Eater” Commitment Day! Are you making the commitment to read through the Bible annually? If so, Bible reading chart links are just below. Bible-Reading Charts: Since this is day of making a commitment for annual Bible reading, Jim shares this link that will resolve to a page on The Navigators website — https://finestofthewheat.org/charts-npc. There are three chart options available here for free download. (Read carefully — there are only two download buttons, but there’s actually third link under…

What’s the Context? — Part 4

Synopsis: Jim Kerwin explores Roman military discipline in the context of book of Acts to shine light on the guards at Jesus’ tomb; they definitely were not Roman soldiers! After a brief discussion of some basic Bible study reference books everyone should have, we turned to reconsider the Throne-Room vision in Isaiah 6:1-9, discovering the contexts to which the passage points us — the life, punishment, and death of King Uzziah (2 Kings 15:4; 2 Chronicles 26:1-23), leprosy (Leviticus 13),…

What’s the Context? — Part 3

Synopsis: Hermeneutics 1: Jim Kerwin takes us through other examples of textual, cultural, linguistic, and historical context by: elaborating further on “Wives, submit” and “Husbands, love” (Ephesians 5:22-24). We see how Paul’s context for these exhortations to mutual submission (v. 21) is based on continuous infilling with the Holy Spirit (vv. 18-20) — that’s the only way it works in love! And the context of mutual submission doesn’t end at 5:33; these examples carry clear through Ephesians 6:9. discovering that…

What’s the Context? — Part 2

Synopsis: After a quick review of context (and the associated word textile) Jim Kerwin takes us through a “what is the context?” thought-exercise: from considering a single embroidered thread in a blouse (like a single verse); next seeing that thread in the context of an embroidered flower (like a small scripture passage or pericope); expanding our context, we appreciate the overall effect of the embroidered blouse (a larger section, like a chapter); then the full blouse (perhaps equivalent to a complete…

What’s the Context? — Part 1

Synopsis: Interested in in-depth Bible reading and Bible study? Today’s guest host Jim Kerwin (M.A., Biblical Studies) from Finest of the Wheat Teaching Fellowship, introduces us to the subject of hermeneutics — how to read and study and share the Scriptures in context. And for our purposes this week, discovering the context comes down to remembering two ideas: Asking “What’s the context?” every time we open the Bible to read. When we think about what we’re reading right now in…

Forgiveness is Conditional

Pastor Jim Kerwin and his precious wife Denise discuss the great need for us to walk in forgiveness. If we fail to forgive others, we will not be forgiven and those great mountains in our lives will NOT be removed (See Mark 11:23-26). Sister Denise uses a story from Corrie Ten Boom’s life to illustrate the process in a more granular way. If you choose to forgive, then Jesus himself will give you the strength to forgive others regardless of who…

Feed My Sheep!

Pastor Jim Kerwin and his precious wife, Denise, continue from Friday discussing  their ministry in Latin America and the key things that are important to all Christians. If you’ve not done so, please take a look at “The Sacred Treasure House Initiative” which includes some excellent information and more importantly illustrates the great need for our dear brothers and sisters. Please obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit to pour out to your brothers and sisters and heed the simple…

Why Do You Call Me Lord?

Do you fully understand what it means to say and believe that Jesus is the Lord? Listen to the message and ask yourself the question is Jesus really the Lord of all in your life or not. Make the decision to put all “buts” aside and surrender to the King of Kings.

Make Disciples of All Nations!

In this special broadcast, missionary Jim Kerwin, founder of the organization Finest of the Wheat, shares his recent experiences in Central America. Taking to heart Jesus’ Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, Brother Jim teaches hermeneutics to pastors, Sunday school teachers, and other ministers. These bright, enthusiastic Christians often have only a sixth grade education. Many live in communities that lack basic plumbing or paved roads. Yet, these ministers are eager and hungry for the Word of God.…

Circumcision, a Type of Sanctification

In this sermon, Pastor Jim details one of the three facets of sanctification.  Sanctification is simply that work of God that makes us holy as Jesus is holy. The three elements are consecration, where we fully give everything into the hand of God, followed by purification which is something that only God can do as well as the perfect love that God puts in our hearts. Today’s sermon focuses on the mighty work of circumcision, which is something that Jesus does in our…
