MP3 AUDIO SPECIALS

 

The Riches of His Grace

 

 

As believers in Jesus Christ we are spiritual billionaires, wealthy beneficiaries of the vast riches of God’s grace. Along with our so-great salvation, we possess spiritual assets and privileges of unprecedented magnitude. This tremendous wealth, “which He lavished upon us” (Eph. 1:7–8), is never earned or deserved. Our life, our daily and spiritual sustenance, our surpassing blessings of eternity are received because of who and what God is—entirely apart from our own efforts, work, energy, or morality. By learning and applying God’s Word, we gain the capacity to appreciate and capitalize on the fantastic riches of His grace.

 

This MP3 CD special is a compilation of lessons that address God’s unmerited favor toward mankind before, during, and after salvation; man’s intrusion into the grace policy of God through arrogance and legalism; and the grace-oriented believer’s response to God with humility, teachability, and graciousness toward others.

A Far Greater Happiness

 

 

“Happy are those who hear the word of God, and observe it.” With these few words, our Lord defined true happiness (Luke 11:28). It is the attitude of a believer learning and applying Bible doctrine. It is a secure and enduring contentment, undisturbed by difficulty, free from dependence upon life’s details. It is an inner joy, drawn from the wellspring of God’s own happiness and far greater than the relative and momentary pleasures the world offers. It is capacity to enjoy prosperity and to withstand adversity. As this incomparable happiness fills the believer’s soul, he rejoices in every day as “the day which the Lord has made” (Psalm 118:24).

 

This MP3 CD special is a compilation of lessons addressing the source of genuine happiness, the frailties of human happiness, and the believer’s ultimate objective: sharing the happiness of God.

Blessing in Suffering

 

 

No suffering in life is too great for the plan of God. In fact, God intends for us to have blessing in the very midst of suffering. The pain, the heartaches, the difficulties of life are designed to stretch us beyond our human resources and confront us with our total dependence on the grace of God. They direct our attention to the things that are important in life—fellowship with God, learning the Word, growing in grace. When in suffering we draw upon the doctrinal resources in our souls and use the assets God has given us, we realize that God is “our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). Our love for Him grows stronger, we develop perseverance and confidence in the spiritual life, and we achieve a higher plane of spiritual growth.

 

This MP3 CD special is a compilation of lessons that address the categories and purposes of suffering, the divine solutions to adversity, and the marvelous blessings enjoyed by the believer in undeserved suffering.

The Divine Institution of Marriage

 

 

When God created the first man and woman, He placed them in the idyllic Garden of Eden and established the divine institution of marriage (Gen. 2:24). This sublime union set the precedence of matrimony for believers and unbelievers alike.

 

Marriage was designed by God to be encapsulated within an integrity envelope of virtue love. In the biblical view of marriage, true personal love between a man and a woman cannot flourish without adherence to God’s mandates. These divine rules govern the responsibility of the husband toward his wife and the wife toward her husband. This MP3 CD special also includes lessons on the biblical view of aggressive and responding love and Christian marriage—the corporate testimony.

Deliverance in National Crisis Volume 4: Authority and Freedom

 

 

Whether the leaders of a nation are hereditary kings or rulers in a republic, their authority has but one source—“For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God” (Romans 13:1b). Governmental authority does not derive its power from the people, but from God. God ordained that these rulers obey and defend the laws of divine establishment, which protect our freedom of self-determination, privacy, property, and life.

 

If unjust leaders abuse their divinely delegated power, we are still exhorted to obey their authority. When we render due honor and obedience “for the Lord’s sake to every human institution” (1 Peter 2:13), we honor the Lord and contribute to our nation’s stability.

 

Authority and Freedom, the fourth collection in the Deliverance in National Crisis MP3 CD specials, is a compilation of lessons that address national leadership, the proper balance of law and liberty, false political and economic tenets, and the believer’s patriotic responsibility to the country.

Deliverance in National Crisis Volume 3: The Trends of History

 

 

As we move through life, we are involved in the ebb and flow of history. Nations and civilizations cycle through inevitable periods of ascendancy and decline, economic prosperity and depression, war and peace, abundance and famine, blessing and cursing. Only with the divine viewpoint from the Word of God can we properly interpret the up and down trends of history and find blessing and stability amid the tumultuous events of our times.

 

The Trends of History, the third collection in the Deliverance in National Crisis MP3 CD specials, is a compilation of lessons that address historical trends, interpretations of both ancient and modern history, the rise and fall of nations, and God’s faithful provision for the believer in time of crisis.

Deliverance in National Crisis Volume 2: The Believer’s Impact

 

 

As goes the believer, so goes the client nation. We as believers in Jesus Christ have a tremendous responsibility to our country to obey the laws of divine establishment and persist in our advance to spiritual maturity. In this way, we will become invisible heroes with a powerful, unheralded, positive impact on our nation and on human history.

 

A client nation’s vigor, prosperity, and survival depend upon the pivot of mature believers who reside within its borders. A large pivot means national blessing and prosperity; a shrinking pivot means divine judgment and eventual destruction of the apostate nation. Yet whether facing national catastrophe or national deliverance, the mature believer oriented to the reality of doctrine is stabilized, safe, and secure in God’s plan.

 

The Believer’s Impact, the second collection in the Deliverance in National Crisis MP3 CD specials, is a compilation of lessons that address the blessings, impact, and characteristics of the invisible hero; divine solutions for the believer in disaster; the pivot’s influence on national survival; and God’s deliverance in historical adversity.

Deliverance in National Crisis

 

 

Today our client nation faces an overwhelming number of spiritual, economic, political, military, and social challenges. Terrorism, natural disasters, destruction of free enterprise, attacks on privacy and property, exorbitant taxes, apostasy in the pulpit, and the degradation of our society present a panorama of national crisis. What is the believer to do in the midst of this national degeneracy and decline?

 

The true hope of any nation rests solely in the grace of God and the pivot of mature believers with Bible doctrine in their souls. In times of adversity and historical crisis, the Lord always delivers individuals or nations faithful to Him. He honors those who consistently learn and apply His Word. This MP3 CD special is a compilation of lessons covering a wide range of doctrines related to the national entity, economy, and warfare, as taught by Pastor R. B. Thieme, Jr., throughout nearly five decades of American history.

The True Meaning of Christmas

 

 

Amid the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the true meaning of Christmas is often forgotten. The reason for Christmas is to celebrate the unique birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The babe in the manger was born to die as a substitute for sinful man so that salvation is available to everyone. All may receive the gift of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone. Through His Word, anyone may come to know this unique Savior and discover the true meaning of Christmas.

 

The True Meaning of Christmas, a special collection of Christmas messages by Pastor R. B. Thieme, Jr., includes the first recorded reading of his poem, “The Night Before Christmas,” in 1959.

The Power of the Resurrection

 

 

The Power of the Resurrection solves the problems of physical and spiritual death. Three days after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the omnipotence of God reunited the soul and spirit of our Lord in a resurrection body. The same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead and guarantees our own resurrection is now available to every Church Age believer. But do you know how to appropriate that power to mobilize your spiritual life?

 

On this MP3 CD, Pastor R. B. Thieme, Jr., explores resurrection dynamics which include related topics on the special deliverance of mankind, Palm Sunday politics, the week of the crucifixion, ritual without reality, the judgment of believers and unbelievers, and political versus spiritual solutions.

The Higher Purpose of Freedom

 

 

People everywhere long to be free, but what will they do with their freedom? Will they use it only for their own pleasure and self-gratification? Or will they use it for the higher purpose that God intended?

 

Freedom is a gift from God to the individual and the client nation. The higher purpose of this freedom is to spread the Gospel to a lost and dying world and to disseminate Bible doctrine for the edification of believers. But how well are we fulfilling that purpose? This MP3 compilation of Fourth of July specials taught by Pastor R. B. Thieme, Jr., delineates the responsibilities of every believer to the Lord and to the client nation.
