An In-depth Study of Ezekiel

The glory of the Lord. The destruction of the temple. The exile of the Israelites. The judgment of nations. The pouring out of the Holy Spirit. The Shepherd King. The Millennial Kingdom.

These are the topics of the book of Ezekiel! As you study this intriguing book, you will be humbled by the holiness, sovereignty and glory of God; you will be challenged to examine your own lives as you see the sin of the Israelites; you will be inspired as you see the power of the Holy Spirit; and you will be excited as you anticipate wonderful promises to be fulfilled.

This study will give you a better understanding of the past, present and future of Israel… and… as you consider the character and attributes of God, you will come to know Him as your awesome God who is faithful to His word and who is worthy of obedience and reverence. Explore the book of Ezekiel with me so that “you may know the Lord” more intimately!

Follow Me

An In-depth Study of Matthew

Radical. Fanatical. Different. Is this the kind of disciple that Jesus wants?   The Gospel according to Matthew tells us it is!

What did Jesus say that caused men to abandon their jobs and embrace this extreme calling? And what did Jesus do that made people flock to be near Him? Why did Jesus befriend twelve men and mentor them for three years? Why did Jesus make enemies with religious leaders? Why did Jesus endure betrayal, torture and death? What happened after He died? Who was this man and what would He say to you?

This in-depth study of the gospel of Matthew will give you the answers to these questions and challenge you to a more passionate commitment to Jesus. You will learn from Matthew’s eye-witness perspective, his proofs from Old Testament Scriptures, and his presentation of five Sermons of Jesus, just Who Jesus is, what He did, and what He said. Matthew’s life was drastically changed from his encounter with Jesus. Yours will be too.

While the beloved disciple, John, tells us that Jesus is the Son of God; Luke’s research tells us that Jesus is the Savior of all mankind; and Mark’s account tells us that Jesus is the Servant of God; the Gospel according to Matthew tells us that Jesus is the Son of Man Who is the Son of God, the Messiah, the King of the Jews.

The King sent out an invitation across the lands: “Follow Me.” How can you say no to Jesus?

This workbook consists of 10 units with 6 lessons per unit.

Come, Let Us Worship

An In-depth Study of Psalms

The Book of Psalms contains many of our most well-known and well-loved Scriptures. We turn to them so often for comfort and to express the emotions of our souls. The Psalms also challenge us to live godly lives, to worship and adore our great and glorious God, to make the right choices in the midst of overwhelming trials, and to always trust the Lord.  The Psalms lead us to keep our priorities straight by telling us to meditate on God’s word and to worship Him as King. These two key themes will be seen throughout the study.

Beginning with Psalm 1 and ending with Psalm 150, you will study selected psalms in the order of their placement in the Scriptures. You will learn that the book of Psalms is not a random collection of poetry, but instead a divinely inspired and well-crafted theological composition.

The Psalms prompt us to turn to the Lord and see that He is with us every moment of our lives, sovereign, faithful, loving, wise and worthy of all our devotion. They remind us to look forward to the day in which He will reign on the earth and we will worship Him as our great and glorious King. While we wait for Him, and when we see Him…. let us worship the King.

This workbook consists of 40 lessons on specific psalms, plus summaries of the psalms not individually studied.

Letters to the Thessalonians

An In-depth Study of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians

There’s something for everyone in these letters! They affirm and correct and inform and motivate. Their messages contain the topics of faith, hope, and love; holiness, prayer, and perseverance; the will of God and the glorious return of Christ. And so much more! Almost every major doctrine of the Christian faith is covered in 1st and 2nd Thessalonians.

While this correspondence is almost 2000 years old, it is as applicable to our lives today as it was on the day it was delivered by Paul’s messenger. In His wisdom, God preserved these letters and communicated His truth in them. Join me as we read someone else’s mail. I’m sure you’ll find a few things that you will think were written just to you!

The workbook consists of 20 lessons.

God’s Sovereignty in the Storm

ryh devotionalby Ann Wintersannetwinters@gmail.com

A short, four-part devotional to encourage one in their walk with Jesus. Do you feel like the storms of your life are separating you from God? Renew a fresh relationship with The Lord again through studying these special scriptures. Then trust God’s Word that He is Sovereign over troubles and circumstances. Scripture tells us to train our minds on who God is: our Portion, our Inheritance, the Faithful One. The final lesson concentrates on God being Trustworthy to carry out His plan and purpose in our lives for our good and His glory; His foremost purpose is to conform us to the image of His Son and sometimes that occurs through tribulations.
