Insight Into an ‘Intense’ Week at The Cove

Mark Yarbrough, Vice President for Communications, Associate Academic Dean, and Assistant Professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary, will be leading an Intensive Bible Training seminar (IBT) at the Cove on June 18-22.  As some of you may have questions on what this seminar may include, we thought we would share a very helpful response from Mark to a potential participant.  (Don’t forget to see what Howard Hendricks has to say about Mark at the bottom of this post!)       

Letter from Tammy to Mark Yarbrough: 
Hi Mark.  I am considering attending your training intensive at The Cove (It may be full by now but I haven’t checked.) and a question.  I have been a student and teacher of the Word for many years and am looking for something to refresh and encourage me and take me deeper.  I live in Kansas City Mo, so travel to The Cove is a financial investment as well as a spiritual one, and I wanted to make sure this was the right intensive for me.  It it for more of a “Beginner” Bible student, or deeper study for those more familiar with the Word?  Thank you for your time. — Tammy

Response from Mark Yarbrough to Tammy:
Greetings from Dallas. Thank you so very much for taking the time to write.  

I’m glad you are considering the intensive training at the Cove. I hope my comments below give clarity to your questions and assist you in the decision making process. I’ll join you in prayer in that regard. I’ll trust with you that the Lord will make clear what you should do.

In describing what you are looking for…you have used words that are near and dear to my heart: “refresh”,  “encourage”, and “deeper.” That is precisely what we are after.

In many ways, the refreshment comes through the Word, the physical environment at the Cove, and the incredible staff that is present to assist your every need. I minister/speak at many places…and the ministry philosophy at the Cove is second to none. The staff is absolutely incredible, and the very design of the week is intent on pulling us out of our normal hustle and bustle…and focusing our attention to the living Word. The physical environment and beautiful surroundings even direct our attention to the Lord. It is amazing how the Lord can speak when we slow down to listen! I know that is true in my life. Fellowship is also a key ingredient to refreshment. The entire team is available to help–including a resident “pastor” for someone who desires to talk to and pray with someone else. Also, the intensive week-long sessions are generally, and purposefully, smaller in number (as opposed to larger seminars that may have several hundred). The “intensive seminars” are designed so that someone feels the individual attention so that they do indeed get “refreshed.” That also happens as we interact with one another. Fellowship is a blessing! 

In regard to “encouragement” and “deeper”– our sessions are “intense,” but not to the point of overwhelming. I firmly believe that the material covered, and the way it is presented, is applicable for all: for those who are earlier in their walk…but also for those who are grounded in the Word and who want to be challenged to step beyond their current position. Last year, we ran this same general session and we had in attendance those who were early in their understanding of the Word and those, such as yourself, who were competent Bible teachers. We cover some challenging areas: biblical studies and methodology (hermeneutics), evaluation of biblical genres (narrative, poetry, parables, preformed material, etc.), the process of correlation (developing principle statements and themes), and the validity of application. I really believe that there is something for everyone in the study, and that the student knows the depth to which the study needs to move them. I’m a classroom handout nut (!), and I enjoy passing along recommendations for books, studies, etc. We have lots of Q and A. I enjoy a lively, interactive classroom setting that keeps us moving…and moves us to be students of the Word. So, I think you will be challenged to go deeper! If that is what you are looking for, I believe this is it.

I hope that gives a little insight into the week. If you feel you desire more information, I’d be happy to share some more insight.

I also know my friends at the Cove would be thrilled to answer any questions you may have over the schedule for the week.

I hope to see you in June!

Blessings in Christ,
Mark Yarbrough

Kendra’s Bible Study…Joshua 9:7-15

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study.  This is a place where women can come together and share their journey towards Scriptural truths and spiritual maturity.  We pray this will be a safe, respectful, resourceful place to come and discuss God’s Word…to discover What it says…What it means…and What it means to you!

Kendra suggests you use the following process when studying Scripture.  We have included an example of this process from John 1:1.

Step 1:  Pray
Step 2: Read God’s Word (look at the passage)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  
Step 3: What Does God’s Word Say? (list the facts)
1 In the beginning the Word was with God and was God.
Step 4: What Does God’s Word Mean? (learn the lessons)
1 God‘s Word is not just ancient philosophy, it is eternal Truth.
Step 5: What Does God’s Word Mean to Me? (listen to his voice)
1 How do I view the Bible?

Kendra Graham NOTES from Joshua 9:7-15 

What does it Say? FACTS:

7: Israel said to the Hivites: Perhaps you are living within our land how shall we make a covenant with you?

8: a. BUT they said to Joshua, “We are your servants.”

     b. Joshua said to them: “Who are you and where do you come from?”

9-10: They said, “Your servants have come from a far country because of the fame of your God; we heard the report of all He did in Egypt, and to the kings beyond the Jordan.

11: So our elders and inhabitants spoke: Take provisions  for the journey and go and meet them and say, we are your servants, make a covenant with us.”

12: This our bread was warm when we took it for provisions on the day we left to come to you, but now is dry and crumbled

13: These wineskins were new behold they are torn, our clothes, our sandals worn out because of the very long journey

14: SO the men of Israel took some of their provisions and did not ask for the counsel of the LORD. 

15: And Joshua made peace with w/ them, a covenant, to let them live, and the leaders swore an oath to them. 

What does it mean? Lessons:

7. The Israelites, I think had a feeling, had questions in their gut, who these guys really were…..  they pressed them for an answer…. who are you… really?  Israel knew that God said not to make a covenant with anyone within the land, they knew the rules, but their eyes were seeing something very believable, their ears were hearing something very believable.  Discernment is something given by God and must be sought out from God. Our senses and emotions will betray us.

8. a. BUT they said to Joshua…. notice they did not answer the question…. where is Gibbs from NCIS on this one? Or “The Closer” right?  Flattery and compliments from the enemy.  Notice the enemy answers Joshua, not the leaders who asked the question, looking for who the softy is perhaps?  I wouldn’t think it would be Joshua.  They are trying to divide the leader from his counsel.  The enemy loves to divide and conquer, be alert.  Often times the enemy will tell you exactly what you want to hear.

b. Joshua presses for an answer to the leaders’ question, who are you?  Stand your ground.  Be firm.  Don’t be deceived.  Seek discernment from the One who gives wisdom upon request.

9-10:  There is STILL no answer to the question.  A far country is not WHAT country.  Notice now they brought up Egypt and the kings beyond the Jordan, but cleverly left out the most recent victories, so again as to “verify” their story.  They were sure to comment on how “far” the fame of the LORD had reached.  People are clever… the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9  Be careful of the flattery of others.

11:  The Gibeonites had no wish to fight Israel, they were just wanting a promise that they would not be destroyed, and they would be more than happy to be their servants, their slaves.  Be careful what you promise and to whom. Your word is your bond.  Your word reflects on the God you serve.  Be careful. Be careful. Be careful.

12-13. Be careful, what things appear to be, are not always what they are in reality.  Only God can give insight, so ask Him who gives wisdom liberally!  When someone is pushing me to believe something…. especially when they want me to believe it NOW and ACT NOW, and SIGN NOW, be wary.

14:  They believed their eyes, ears and touch.  Things are not always what they seem.  Times when we don’t think we need to seek counsel of the LORD are probably the very times we most need to seek the counsel of the LORD.

15:  Be careful of the promises I make.  Covenants should not be taken lightly.  My word is my bond, so be careful what situations and  people I bond myself to.

What does it mean to me?

7: Am I quick to believe all I see and hear, or am I seeking God on all things, even when the answer seems obvious to me, right in front of my eyes?

8: a. Am I quick to believe flattery and words that tickle my ears and ego?  Am I alert to the tactics of the enemy?  When has the enemy used the tactic “divide and conquer” in my life?  Was it successful?  Did I learn from that?  Was I bamboozled or wise?

8: b. Am I in prayer for discernment?  Am I quick to believe what I hear so I won’t have to press in any longer?  I hate confrontation, but am I willing to hold strong and face up or am I quick to crumble and just believe what I hear because it is easier?

9-10:  When have I been moved by the flattery of someone else to do something I normally would not do?  Have I used flattery to get my way?  Is that right?

11: Do I flippantly make promises with people or am I careful and prayerfully consider the covenants I make?  Is my word my bond, or an avenue to get what I want?

12-13: Am I quick to believe what I see?  Do I rely on my own senses to make decisions or do I prayerfully consider all things?

14: In whom do I trust? Myself? Circumstances?  Or am I constantly seeking God’s counsel?  Am I quickly making decisions, or patiently seeking and waiting for God’s answers? 

15: Have I impatiently made promises to do things, and be places that I never consulted God about?  Everything seemed right on the surface, but after I was committed I knew it wasn’t right?  Am I impulsive in my decisions?

LIVE IT OUT:

Take everything to God in prayer.  Wait for God to clearly reveal His wisdom on the matter then have the guts to follow through with His leading.

Homework for next week: Joshua 9: 16-21

GUEST POST: God’s Example…

By Neil Anderson

In the vast ocean of eternity there was a tidal wave of time that began with the incarnation of Christ and ended with His crucifixion. God stepped out of eternity into time in order that we might step out of time into eternity. His example set the bar so high that human achievement is beyond our grasp. The incarnation was the sternest possible rebuke to our pride. We cannot fully comprehend the example of Christ who “emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men” (Phil. 2:7). He went from the highest state of being to the lowest state of human existence, becoming a helpless infant born in a manger to humble parents with no social status. For you and I to become a slug doesn’t come close to approximating the descent. “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

Our Lord’s time came to an abrupt end at the crucifixion, which was the sternest possible rebuke to our selfish nature. “We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 Jn. 3:16). Can you imagine what life on earth would be like if we all believed the Apostle Paul and lived according to Philippians 2: 3-5:    

“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”  

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.

Kendra’s Bible Study: Joshua 8: 9-17

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study.  This is a place where women can come together and share their journey towards Scriptural truths and spiritual maturity.  We pray this will be a safe, respectful, resourceful place to come and discuss God’s Word…to discover What it says…What it means…and What it means to you!

Step 5: What Does God’s Word Mean to Me? (listen to his voice)
1 How do I view the Bible?

Kendra Graham NOTES from Joshua 8:9-17

FACTS from verses 11-13
11. All the people of war came before the city and camped. 
12. He took 5,000 men and set them in ambush.
13. Joshua spent the night in the valley.

LESSONS from verses 11:13: 
Sometimes God’s plan leads to an offensive attack at the doorstep of our enemies.

God’s plan involves my active obedience and it will probably take an insane amount of   courage that will strengthen my faith in the end.  It is never easy.  There is always a gap between what I can do and what God must do…. that gap will demand courage and will produce faith in my life.  

APPLICATION from verses 11:13:
Would I rather live in a defensive mode or offensive?  Am I willing to go on the offensive against the enemy?  Are there places and things if God calls me to do them that I just won’t do? “I’ll go there, but I won’t go there”?

Do I trust God if He asks me to place myself in a position of vulnerability in front of friend or foe? Or do I demand from God a place to play it safe and a constant “comfort zone”?

Will I press in to what God is asking of me, or get out?  Was I thinking this would be easier than it really is?

FACTS from verses 14-17
14.The king saw it, rose and went to meet Israel in battle. 15. Israel pretended to be beaten and fled. 16.All the people pursued and were drawn away from the city. 17. They left the city unguarded

LESSONS from verses 14-17
14. Often the ENEMY will use the EXACT SAME strategy against me until it doesn’t work anymore.
15. GOD uses a NEW strategy with His people, Trust God with His plan and the results.
16- 17. The enemy is often times bold in their pride and arrogance, James 4:6 “God is opposed to the proud but gives grace to the humble.” The enemy will over-reach due to their arrogance.

APPLICATION from verses 14-17:
What strategy for defeat has the enemy used on me time and time again and has found victory in my defeat?

Have I asked God what His plan is, His new strategy for the enemies defeat and His victory in my past or present circumstances?  Am I willing to “do all”  according to God’s plan even if I don’t like it, or it’s not easy, or it doesn’t make any sense?

When do I think the arrogant enemy just prospers and prospers thinking that God does not see it?  Do I take God at His Word and trust that He is in control?

Homework for next week: Joshua 8: 18-23, 29

Kendra’s Bible Study… Deuteronomy 32: 4, 9-12

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study.  This is a place where women can come together and share their journey towards Scriptural truths and spiritual maturity.  We pray this will be a safe, respectful, resourceful place to come and discuss God’s Word…to discover What it says…what it means…and what it means to you!

Kendra suggests you use the following process when studying Scripture.  We have included an example of this process from John 1:1.

 

Always begin your time by first praying and reading your verses.
Step 1: What Does God’s Word Say? (list the facts)
1 In the beginning the Word was with God and was God.
Step 2: What Does God’s Word Mean? (learn the lessons)
1 God‘s Word is not just ancient philosophy, it is eternal Truth.
Step 3: What Does God’s Word Mean to Me? (listen to his voice)
1 How do I view the Bible?

Today’s Scripture:  Deuteronomy 32: 4, 9-12

Here are a few of Kendra’s lessons.  Please share your lessons with us too!

Verse 4:
Step 1: ROCK! His work is perfect, His ways just, faithful, righteous and upright

Step 2: God says: This IS my immovable unchangeable character.  I AM trustworthy, I AM protective!  My ways are right, I got you, TRUST ME!

Step 3: God is telling me that He is safe, and just and right, solid, never changing w/ the wind of culture… Do I claim the promise of His character in my life?  Do I know My God?  Do I trust God? How, When have I trusted Him?

Verse 9:
Step 1: The LORD’s portion (inheritance) is His people.

Step 2: I say: I am an embarrassment to God. I have nothing to offer.  There are so many more important people and issues than me for God to deal with.
GOD says: YOU ARE MY treasure! MY inheritance! I am PROUD to claim you! I have chosen YOU!

Step 3: Do I realize that I am God’s inheritance and He is proud of that fact?  God is not embarrassed to claim me, am I embarrassed to claim Him?  Do I feel like treasure to God?

Verse 10:
Step 1: He found him in a desert, howling wilderness.  He encircled, cared for and guarded him as the apple of his eye.

Step 2: I say:  I have been rejected, kicked out, forgotten, left to the elements, unimportant and very very alone.
God says: I AM here with My arms around you, holding you up, caring for you in the midst of your misery, very aware of where you are, and you are not alone, I AM here.  I found you and will guard you with all that I AM, for you are the apple of My eye, you mean everything to ME!

Step 3: What is keeping me from seeking the One who loves me this much?  What causes me to believe the lie that God has left and doesn’t care?  LORD, will you show me  You are here today in my circumstance?  Where have I looked for love & acceptance in this world only to be let down b/c it was not You?

Homework for March 13th online discussion:  1 Kings 19: 19-21

GUEST POST: Dependence on God…

By Lyndsey Parham

“Sometimes God wants to force a choice out of us by bringing us to tough situations. You won’t be dependant on God until you are at a place where you solely rely on God.”  ~ Kendra Graham

Isn’t that the truth.

For me, it wasn’t until the Lord walked me through a very challenging season that I truly got and understood this. Dependence on the Lord comes at a place and time when He becomes what you solely rely on. You can try your best to communicate and prepare for this kind of dependence, but we are creatures that learn from experience. This experience became my very own, very personal, very specific “Aha!” moment.

A couple of weeks ago, I was given a gentle reminder of this truth through the Joshua Bible Study at The Cove with Kendra Graham.

 

As a 27 year-old woman, I am at a place in my life where I really appreciate true and authentic based teaching of God’s Word. I care more about what the Word has to say than I do about if I was “entertained” well enough by a speaker. I was so encouraged when Kendra began by talking about how we are to “treat God’s Word right.” Meaning, we don’t want to rely solely on what other people say a verse means. Anyone can hop into Scripture and gain insight into what the Lord wants to reveal to us through His written word.

Kendra went on to say that the “more you dig the sweeter it can be” when you have you own “Aha!” moment in Bible study. And aren’t those moments just the best? I love when you spend time pouring over the Word and then all of a sudden, it seems, that those same words you read a month ago, become so alive as you happen to read them again during a time that you couldn’t need them more. Isaiah 55:10-11 in action.

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (NIV)

I love that. His Word never returns void. There is something about getting in the Word for yourself and then joining in a Bible study where multiple women have done the same. We learn and grow from what each other have gained in their own time with the Lord! Kendra shared that “we aren’t supposed to have all the answers: that’s the point of the body of Christ.”

I am so grateful to be sharing in this Tuesday night Bible study. Especially since we are spending time in the book of Joshua. Big things go down in Joshua. We see the Israelites struggle and experience victory, but even more so, we see God act in some huge ways.

Having recently moved back to Asheville from the Lone star state of Texas, I always heard from my mom and sister about these “Tuesday night studies.” Now I get to experience them in person.

And I am so very glad for that.

GUEST POST: Seven BILLION Souls

By Ron Hutchcraft

I was just doing the math. At one point in time, we had one grandchild. I couldn’t believe my wife was old enough to be a grandmother! But then – within a matter of years, that one has become eight grandchildren!

But that’s nothin’. In that same period of time, a billion more people have joined us on this planet. And this week, our “global village” just changed the population sign from six billion to seven billion.

Not just seven billion people. Seven billion souls. According to Jesus, each one of them is worth more than “the whole world” (Mark 8:36 ). And according to the Bible, each one of them will ultimately spend forever in heaven or hell. And 150,000 of them will slip into eternity every single day. I don’t know about you, but I find all that more than a little breathtaking.

And the orders of Jesus remain unchanged: “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone” (Mark 16:15 - NLT). Everyone. Each of those seven billion humans deserves the chance to know that God “so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son” (John 3:16 ) to take their hell and give them heaven.

So, with the seven billionth soul born this week, the stakes just got higher. The Final Orders (AKA, the Great Commission) just got more urgent.

But as the number of lost souls grows exponentially, something strange is happening. Many Western churches are cutting back their missionary budgets – sometimes to spend more on themselves. The percentage of believers’ income given to God’s work is declining – and the percentage of that which goes to reaching a lost world is shamefully small.

Missionaries who are ready to take that Good News to some needy place in the world can’t go yet – it’s taking them three years to find the support to go. And when some Christian young people tell their Christian parents they’re sensing God’s call to world missions, their parents are telling them to “do something more secure and just give to missionaries.” We want our kids to do something important, right? Don’t tell God that. His Son was a missionary.

With nearly a billion people more to reach with each decade, how can we possibly be content to do it the ways we’ve always done it? At this time of an unprecedented people explosion, we also have within our reach an unprecedented communications explosion. Through technologies like the Internet, social networks like Facebook, mobile systems like iPads and smartphones – and, in some parts of the world, the still powerful “old school” technologies of radio and television. Does this population explosion leave us any choice but to use “all possible means” (1 Corinthians 9:22 ) to give every soul a chance? To capture the most powerful delivery systems in history to deliver the most powerful Message in the world!

If Jesus wept over a city that was lost (Luke 19:41 ), how must He weep over a world that is lost? With more lost souls than ever before. But as world evangelist, D. L. Moody, said: “The Master’s heart is pierced with unutterable grief…not over the world’s iniquity, but the Church’s indifference.” Forget about the Church’s indifference – what about yours and mine?

The exponential growth of souls on this planet isn’t just a fleeting headline – it’s a mandate for the people of God. All of us. Each of us. To pray differently. Give differently. Even plan our future differently. We certainly cannot explain to God “business as usual.”

Because God so loved the world.

Brooklyn Tabernacle Pastor at The Cove

Pastor Jim Cymbala

Brooklyn Tabernacle’s Pastor, Jim Cymbala, knows a thing or two about “Ministering Christ to Others,” the title of his upcoming seminar at The Cove in Asheville, NC, March 28-30.

God called Jim and his wife Carol, to a small church in Brooklyn, NY, in the 1970s. It was in this struggling inner-city church where the Cymbalas realized God’s love could meet the most desperate of human needs. Pastor Cymbala now oversees Brooklyn Tabernacle’s thriving congregation of several thousand people, through which several other churches and missionary stations around the world have blossomed.

At his seminar at The Cove, Pastor Cymbala will speak to the great need of ministry in the world today that’s anointed by the Holy Spirit, centered on God’s Word, and filled with love. Participants will discover how the Holy Spirit, the Word, and God’s people as loving vessels are the solutions for the challenges facing the church.

Will Graham, grandson to Billy Graham and Assistant Director at The Cove, will lead the closing session. For more information or to register for this event online, click here or call 1-800-950-2092. If you come, you’ll take home fresh inspiration to share Christ with others while acknowledging your dependence on Him.
