Bible study with BunmiSep 22, 2023
027 - Get up and walk
Many believers know God is real and that miracles can happen. But when a desire takes a while to be fulfilled, people lose hope and sometimes, it seems as though it might never happen.
In this Bible study taken from John 5: 1-9, we look at the story of the man by the pool of Bethesda. We study his interaction with Jesus and learn what God expects us to do when we are faced with a similar situation.
Listen and be charged as this Bible study is a charge to all who listen.
026 - Know your authority
One of the words you will hear bandied around in Christian circles is authority. You'll hear preachers and teachers tell Christians that they have authority but what does that mean?
As believers, we need to know what we have been given through Christ Jesus. In this Bible study, we look through the scriptures at God's original plan for man, how authority traded places and the way authority is exercised.
Scriptures referenced Genesis 1, 2 and 3, Luke 4: 5- 8, Colossians 2: 9-10, 15, Ephesians 1:19-22 and Matthew 28:18-20.
025 - A kingdom of words
As believers, we have been translated from the kingdom of darkness into a kingdom of light. How things worked before we became believers is different to how things work in this new kingdom.
The way this kingdom operates is by words. In this study, we see how God created all that we see by using words. We studied Genesis 1, Genesis 2:7 and Hebrews 11:3 to see how words shaped what we see today.
As believers, we speak and then we see the reality of what God has promised us. Our words are the missing link between what God said and what we are experiencing.
Listen and be blessed.
024 - Sin and what to do to be without it
Many of us believers have been told we should not sin since we could talk and act. From a young age, we've had those who had charge of us tell us not to do the wrong things. In the church today, we spend loads of time asking God to forgive us our sins.
What is God's take on sin? What do we need to do to overcome sin? In this Bible study, we look at sin and the work of Christ concerning it. We study Hebrews 10, Romans 3 and 2 Corinthians 5 to understand sin and how to deal with it so it doesn't deal with us.
Listen and be blessed. Please share with your friends and loved ones who need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. God bless you.
023 - How are you acting?
Believers were described by Jesus in Matthew 5 as salt and light. The epistles and most of the New Testament talk a lot about how believers are supposed to be and act because of the Holy Spirit in them.
In this Bible study, as we continue understanding the fundamentals of our faith, we study the character of a believer. We study 1 Timothy 3: 1-9 and Galatians 5:22-25 in the Amplified version.
We learn about the kind of fruit we should produce because of the Holy Spirit in us. Listen and be blessed as you listen.
022 - Getting God's promise fulfilled in your life
God has made many promises to the Body of Christ through His Word. As believers, we have to lay hold of these great and precious promises so that we can see them fulfilled in our lives.
As we continue our understanding of the foundations of our faith, we study 2 Corinthians 1:20. In this study, we see what God has said about His promises for those of us who are in Christ Jesus. We learn about what Christ has done for us to access the promises and how we can see those promises fulfilled in our lives.
Listen and be blessed. Please share with a friend or two so they can be blessed too.
021 - Is it possible to be righteous like God?
What is righteousness? How do we access it? What do we have to do to keep or maintain it? Can we lose our righteousness? Can we even be righteous as God is?
Using various verses in the book of Romans, Philippians and 2 Corinthians 5, we study righteousness, what it means and how a believer is made righteous.

020 - Settle the matters of your faith
Faith is usually the first step for a believer. It takes faith to believe in Jesus, confess that He is Lord and surrender your life to Him. But after that, what next? In this Bible study, we continued our study on the basics every believer should know.
We studied 2 Peter 1: 1-9, Galatians 5:1 and 1 John 1:5 as we built an understanding of who God is, who Jesus is and what we have as believers. Listen and be blessed.
019 - Let's get back to the basics
Every believer needs to know certain basic truths about their faith, God, Jesus and life in the kingdom. The sad truth is many don't based on a lack of the gospel being taught in the Body of Christ.
In this Bible study, we go back to the basics and foundational truths that every believer must know. This is the first part in the series as we learn the foundational truths of a believer. Our foundational scripture is 2 Peter 1: 5 - 8. Listen and be blessed.
018 - Get accurate with God's Word and change your reality
Many believers know the scriptures. We get to see and hear Bible verses from soundbites in the Sunday sermon to WhatsApp broadcast messages. Then we hear people's interpretation of scriptures and sometimes take them hook line and sinker.
This Bible study examines what it means to rightly divide the word of truth (2 Timothy 2: 15). Using Matthew 6:33, we learn not only to divide the word of God accurately but also what it means to seek the kingdom.
017 - Let's settle this salvation matter
Salvation in its simplest form is being saved from death and restored back to God. Man and God had an intimate relationship but in Genesis chapter 3, there was a separation between them due to sin. Salvation is a gift for all the world but what does it mean? When we become saved, do we stay saved or can we lose our salvation? Do we have to work to keep our salvation?
In this Bible study, our main Bible reference is John 2:16. We also looked at Hebrews 7 and Ephesians 2. Listen and be blessed. Also, please share this episode with your communities and networks. Let others receive God's revelation of salvation.
016 - This is why you shouldn't compare
God has a plan for all our lives is a phrase we hear often in Christian circles. We hear it over and over but what does it mean? In this Bible study, we study the scriptures in Psalm 139:14-16 and Psalm 119:6 to understand what God has planned for our lives.
We learn how comparison can take us out of alignment with God's plan. We also learn how to live a life devoid of comparison so that we can live the one God has for us.
015 - Faith: understanding and growing it
As believers, we need faith to live the life that God has for us. What then is faith? Faith in the simplest of terms is to believe. It is to have a conviction about something or someone, in our case, God and Jesus.
To grow your faith, you must first understand what faith is and the part it plays in your life. We study Romans 1:17, 10: 9-10 & 17 and James 2:14-18 in this Bible study. We learn what faith is, the part it plays and how to grow our faith so we can access what God has for us.
Listen and be blessed. If you know someone who needs to hear this message, please share it with them.
014 - The role of the Holy Spirit
When Jesus was on the earth, He operated by the power of the Holy Spirit. As He prepared to leave, He told His disciples about the Holy Spirit, a Helper He would give them to be with them. As believers of Jesus Christ, we have the same Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God in us. Yet, to fully enjoy Him, we must know His role in us.
We must also know how to grow our relationship with Him so that He can have His fullest expression through us. In this Bible study, we study John 14: 16-17, 26, John 16: 13 and Acts 1: 8 to see the role of the Holy Spirit and what He can do with us.
013 - You're in charge of your feelings
Feelings are totally normal. They act similar to the sensors on a car, telling you what is happening in and around you. The challenge is when they rule and dictate how we live and function as people. They were never to be leaders but a guide to heighten our awareness. As believers, we must know what our feelings represent and how to manage them.
In this Bible study, we study how the psalmist in Psalm 42:9-11 dealt with his feelings. We see how we articulated how he was feeling and the posture he took. We also look at Apostle Paul's admonition to us about how we are responsible for how we feel based on what we think. We see this in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.
You are more in control of how you feel than you think. Don't live subject to the rise and fall of your feelings.
012 - Praying the right way for results
Many Christians pray but they do it as though they are shooting at a target they can't see. People don't know if their prayers will be answered which is contrary to how Jesus prayed. Jesus prayed knowing His prayers would be answered and He expects the same of us.
In this Bible study, we study how to pray like Jesus so that we are praying in alignment with God. We can pray accurately, knowing that our prayers will be answered. As we go through Matthew 6, John 17 and 1 Corinthians 14, we see how we should pray as believers.
011 - Knowing the will of God will get you answered prayers
We pray and then wonder why God doesn't respond. When this happens over and over, we can become discouraged and upset with God. The reason we don't get answers sometimes is because we ask God to validate our desires, instead of His will.
God wants to fulfil His will in our lives. All the blessings of God are attached to His will for us. In this bible study, we look at the story of Jesus and how He lived His life on earth according to the will of God.
010 - How to get your prophecy fulfilled
Prophecies are part and parcel of the life of a believer. The Bible is filled with so many prophecies about Jesus, believers and what God is doing. In our modern times, these can seem far removed but prophecies are being spoken every day. When you get a prophecy or prophetic word, it is pointing you to God's heart concerning you in the future. So, how do you get the prophecy to come to pass?
In this Bible study, we see how Jesus interacted with prophecy and ensured it came to pass. We see what Jesus did in John 12: 12-16 and Matthew 3: 13- 17 to ensure that the prophecies spoken concerning Him came to pass. You can do the same thing too with your prophecies. If this episode blesses you, please share it with a friend or two.
009 - Do you know what you have?
As Christians, many of us know that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for us. If people ask if we are saved, we might answer in the affirmative. This is great but there is more to our salvation than just being saved.
In this episode, we study the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32. Our focus is on the latter verses where we are introduced to the older son. Many preachers share about the older son’s jealousy but we need to study what led to his reaction.
As Christians, we can be like the older son when we don’t know what we have. Listen and learn what is yours through Christ.
008 - How to get out of an impossible situation
Life happens. We face challenges but some challenges are tougher than others. You lose a job and none seems to be on the horizon. A loved one falls sick. You have a mountain of debt and everyone wants their money like yesterday. How do you get out of such a situation as a believer?
We see the answer in 2 Kings 4:1-7. In this bible study, we study how a woman who was in debt was rescued thanks to the help of the prophet. And no, he didn't give her the money but showed her how to use what she had to get out of the situation she found herself in.
In this episode, you will learn that challenges are common to all but how we respond as believers should be different.
007 - Here's why your beliefs matter
You hear about beliefs from various quarters. It could be from that coach or influencer on social media or your church pastor. Even non-Christians know that beliefs are important and you'll hear people speaking about overcoming limiting beliefs. In this episode, we study the effects of beliefs on our life experiences. We see the effect of having the right belief and where to start when you want to change your beliefs. The main scriptures we studied are Matthew 13:53-58 and Proverbs 23:7.
006 - You can't afford to be ignorant
In this episode, we study why knowledge is important. As Christians, ignorance isn't bliss and we can't afford to be ignorant. We learn that if we don't have knowledge, especially as God's children, we will live a substandard life. Hosea 4:6 is our anchor scripture. We must spend time in the Word of God to know God, His nature, Spirit, ways and thoughts towards us.
005 - Live free!
In this episode, we study the freedom Christ made available to us and what that means for us. As Christians, we are free from the law of sin and death but if we don't know this, we will live like those who aren't. We study 2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 8:1-2, Ephesians 2:1-9 and John 8:32. To live free, we need to know what Christ did and our position in Christ. This comes by spending time in the Word of God and affirming it to ourselves.
004 - Change your life by what you say
In this episode, we study the power of words. We study how as people made in the image and likeness of God, we can create our realities and change our lives with our words. God has given us authority and when we speak, we should speak as those who have authority. We looked at what happens, in the spirit and in the physical, when we speak. We studied how to use our words to speak life using Proverbs 18:21, Genesis 1:26-28 and Genesis 2:7; 18-20.
003 - What to do when you're worried about your responsibilities
In this episode, we study the story of Martha and Mary in Luke 10 verses 38-42. In this scripture, we learn that having responsibilities are normal but how we deal with them matters. It is easy to get worried, bothered and anxious about what we have to do. Jesus tells us how to overcome this anxiety and worry so we can handle our responsibilities well.
002 - How to grow spiritually mature
In this episode, we learn that as believers, we are expected to be spiritually mature. We also learn based on 2 Peter 1 how to grow spiritually mature.
001 - Why is change hard as a Christian?
In this episode, I share why Christians struggle to change, especially when they want to. We study what affects our ability to change and how we can begin to change so we can experience the life God has for us.
