Rightly Dividing is a video teaching platform which seeks to proclaim and teach Jesus Christ through the scriptures. This is a Bible teaching and studying tool that allows viewers to see the Bible passages on screen and to follow along with Jordan's teaching as he highlights, underlines and takes notes.

Our goal is Ephesians 4:9-16 - we want to help believers to grow up in every way into Jesus, who is the "head" of the church.

LATEST

This episode of Rightly Dividing looks at 1 John chapter 1. There are some deeply encouraging and comforting truths in this chapter for the weak and struggling believer who is seeking to obey God but discovering that they are doing it imperfectly.

RIGHTLY DIVIDING EPISODES

JESUS IS THE WAY, TRUTH & LIFE

This episode dives into Jesus' statement in John 14:6 - "I am the way, the truth and the life." God's desire is that Christ would become the only "way, truth and life" for every believer for every aspect of their lives.

This episode explains that a proper "Jesus focus" is at the heart of what it means to "rightly divide" scripture.

HOW TO RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD OF TRUTH (PART 1)

The main thing God is communicating to us through his word is His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus IS the word of God who brings the division of soul and spirit in us.

HOW TO RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD OF TRUTH (PART 2)

ROMANS 9  | INTRODUCTION

The topic of Calvinism, election, predestination, etc... is a controversial subject. In this video I introduce a series of videos we will be releasing over the next several months which will deal with these subjects and give a Biblical response to the ideas put forth by Calvinism.

When we compare Galatians to the controversial chapter of Romans 9, we see that Paul's point is NOT to teach a deterministic view of election.

ROMANS 9 PART 1 | ACCURSED AND CUT OFF

TRIALS, TESTING, LEGALISM, TEMPTATION & FAITH

The story in Matthew 4 of the temptation of Jesus contains deep spiritual truths that may not be immediately evident to those who read. This episode dives deeper into this passage and shows how it contains deep insight and encouragement for times of trials and temptations.

When we compare Galatians to the controversial chapter of Romans 9, we see that Paul's point is NOT to teach a deterministic view of election.

ROMANS 9 PART 2 | TRUE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM

The topic of Calvinism, election, predestination, etc... is a controversial subject. In this video I introduce a series of videos we will be releasing over the next several months which will deal with these subjects and give a Biblical response to the ideas put forth by Calvinism.

ROMANS 9 PART 3 | THE SEED OF ABRAHAM

ROMANS 9 PART 4 | ISAAC & ISHMAEL

In this episode Jordan continues through Romans 9 and discusses Paul’s usage of the story of Isaac and Ishmael. Why does Paul bring up this story? What is he using these Old Testament figures to illustrate? This episode answers those questions.

ROMANS 9 PART 5 | JACOB, ESAU & PHARAOH

Jordan explains the spiritual analogies of Jacob and Esau that Paul uses in Romans 9. Did God really "hate" Esau before he was born. Did God unconditionally elect Jacob to salvation and Esau to damnation or does Paul have another point he's making with these Old Testament figures? Find out in this episode.

REFUTING CALVINISM WITH EPHESIANS 1:3-4

Being chosen by God is a spiritual blessing, and Ephesians 1 says that God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing IN CHRIST. This means that the moment in time where believers receive every spiritual blessing (including being chosen) is the point in time when we come to be in union with Jesus Christ.

CHOSEN IN CHRIST | A REPLY TO JOHN PIPER

This episode looks at a quote from John Piper about election in Ephesians 1 and discusses the issues with the perspective that he teaches.

WHO ARE GOD'S SHEEP | PART 1

who God predetermined to salvation while leaving the rest of humanity to destruction and wrath? This is the view that John Piper would teach. In this episode we reply to this view and explain who the sheep of God truly are.

WHO ARE GOD'S SHEEP | PART 2

Who are Jesus' sheep that he refers to in the gospel of John? Are they the unconditionally elect who God predetermined to salvation while leaving the rest of humanity to destruction and wrath? This is the view that John Piper would teach. In this episode we reply to this view and explain who the sheep of God truly are.

WHO ARE GOD'S SHEEP | PART 3

Do we "belong" to God as "his own" BEFORE we believe in Him and receive Jesus as Calvinism claims? We discuss that question in this episode.

MY MAIN ISSUE WITH CALVINISM

Ephesians 1:4 is a popular Calvinist prooftext? But does this passage really support Calvinism? 

CHOSEN "IN" OR "OUTSIDE" OF CHRIST?

When and where are believers chosen by God? Is it before or after they come to be in spiritual union with Christ by faith?

SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE AFRAID OF GOD?

Some Bible verses seem to indicate that we should not walk in fear, while others seem to encourage us to have "fear" of the Lord. In this video Jordan explains a solution to this seeming contradiction and answers the question, "should we fear God?"

(1 of 3) Disproving Ahnsahnghong, 1948 & The Fig Tree Prophecy

The WMSCOG's "fig tree" argument is meant to prove Ahnsahnghong as second coming Christ. Their argument however is based upon a false assumption that the teachings of Christ passed away and needed to be restored. 

(2 OF 3) WHY THE FIG TREE LESSON IS NOT ABOUT AHNSAHNGHONG

When we look at Luke 21's account of the fig tree lesson, we find that the fig tree is not actually a prophecy of Israel's restoration to their land in 1948 as the WMSCOG claims. This then proves that Ahnsahnghong did not fulfill this supposed "prophecy."

(3 OF 3) THE FIG TREE PROVES AHNSAHNGHONG IS NOT CHRIST

The context of Matthew 24 proves that Ahnsahnghong did not fulfill any fig tree "prophecy." Other New Testament passages further proves this point by showing us that it is the name of "Jesus" that every knee will bow and confess to in the last days.

WMSCOG | How To Prove Revelation 22 Is NOT About Mother God

Does Revelation 22:17 teach us that there is a "Mother God" and she gives the water of life? In this episode of Rightly Dividing, Jordan looks at this verse and shows how it clearly does not support the false doctrine of "Mother God."
