John Magnuson Discovery Bible Study Suppliment

Lipscomb University The DBS (“Discovery Bible Study”) in a nutshell. Isaiah 55:11 says,. “When my word goes forth, it shall not return empty or void, but will accomplish the thing for .  It also says that NOTHING about the Word of God is for sale.

Teaching people how to TEACH others to teach others is a good plan. However, the most aggressive discipling groups are often teaching Anti-Christian Doctrine.
The Holy Spirit becomes the Teacher.
It gets the teacher, dvds, and other ‘book studies’ out of the way,
        allowing the “True Teacher” –the Holy Spirit—to enter and teach.

        There is a dependency on God
to reveal Truth—and He does—every time.
God is Holy Spirit: He is not a man nor the son of man. God is not flesh and bones.
Jesus articulates what God the Father BREATHES (spirit is not a person) the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle without metron or METER.
Jesus then SPEAKS that Inspired message and never uses rhetoric, singing or playing instruments.
John Magnuson and church use rhetoric, singing and virtual instruments with a "worship team" a word quite repullsive.
John Magnuson and church says that Jesus the Son is God the Father and that the Spirit OF (A preposition) Christ is another god-people required for Jesus to function.
Scripture revealed by Jesus cannot be private interpreted meaning "further expounding" or corrupting meaning selling the Word at retail.

Discipling teaching that which is written for out learning
Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
        it was needful for me to write unto you,
        and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend
        for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

John Magnuson and leaders denies that that THE FAITH or THE WORD as LOGOS or Regulative Principle HAS been delivered. Jesus in Matthew 28 denies that there is a limit on revelation in Matthew 28 which teaches ANY one claiming to be a MINISTER to GO and make disciples. 

David Young of John Magnuson's church claims that he has a crown which CANNOT be removed and he denies Scripture which says that it can be removed and one declared ANATHEMA. That means any person or thing devoted to enhance any religious group by their persona cannot be redeemed and MUST BE BURNED. The Jews fell into instrumental-trinitarian-perverted "worship service" at Mount Sinai and God declared that sin beyond redemption and many of them were BURNED.

Those involved in the Discipling Dilemna or Extreme Discipleship claim that God COMMANDES them to be Instrumental-Trinitarian and the END is always a gender compromised "worship observation" to which Jesus Said the kingdom does not come. Most of those hearing NEW VOICES or NEW VISION CASTING creep in unaware intending to collect your money and then DISCLOSE their hidden agenda:
Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares,
        who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,
        ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
         and denying
                the only Lord God, [Theos]        |
| Trinitarians are defined by John as Antichrists.
                our Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ.

  1. Before the time of Jesus the PROPHETS were the only Documents which informed the Jews spiritually for more than 1500 years.
  2. Jesus defined Holy Scriptures as the PROPHETS and other prophecies including Jacob who commanded that the godly people NOT enter into covenant with the Levites nor to attend their synagogues. 
  3. For Christians who are ONLY DISCIPLES or STUDENTS of the Prophets and the confirmation of the prophecies by Jesus, He LIMITED a Christian or Disciple to what He had commanded to be taught and observed.
  4. Peter claims to have left a record of the Apostles eye-- and ear--witnesses of Jesus who taught and confirmed HIS teachings by signs and wonders.
  5. All historic Christians claim to be Apostolic and especially with the Reformation and then Restoration removed any faith or practice not directly authorized by Jesus Christ which were BREATHED (spirit means wind or BREATH) by Jesus and practiced or commanded by the original apostles.
  6. You can be a religious person or believe in false gods but the only historic qualification for a Christian or follower of Jesus Christ is the historic and preserved Prophets and Apostles.
  7. The Law and Monarchy court records by the abandoned Civil-Military-Clergy system modelled after Tyre or Babylon are not Holy Scripture.
  8. Suddenly and violently at the end of Hosea's two days and the end of the prophetic sixth day, men in all Bible-based churches arose telling people that there was a "holy spirit" telling them that their godly ancestors were ignorant but maybe blameless: they had derived a formula for just reading parts of isolated verses, meditating on them like a mantra and a "spirit" would tell THEM (but not you) what God wouldl have had written if He had their Doctorate of the Law: Jesus said that they "take away the key to knowledge" and have no role and no dole.
  9. Jesus warned that there is only a Little (mikros) flock of lost spirits in the midst of the World's View, the Kosmos or the kingdom of the Devil.
  10. Jesus defined His flock as the WAY that is called the SECT which is very narrow and their Kingdom does not come with cost nor with observations meaning religious observations beyond the well-defined and exampled command to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.
  11. The Christian System or Covenant as prophesied is with the LAITY and excludes priests and Levites--preacher mediators and musicians who prophesed with instruments meaning they were soothsayer-sorcerers.
  12. Jude warns that these are old predestined UNHOLY spirits. They are dangerous.
Rev. 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write,
        Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
        And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Rev. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him.
        And he said unto me, See thou do it not:
        I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren
        that have the testimony of JESUS:
        worship GOD:
        for the testimony of Jesus IS the SPIRIT of prophecy.

The Spirit is the Spirit OF Truth and is not a person.

Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.
        And let him that heareth say, Come.
        And let him that is ATHIRST come.
        And whosoever will,
        let him take the water of life freely.

g1432. dorean, do-reh-an´; accusative case of 1431 as adverb; gratuitously (literally   or figuratively): — without a cause, freely, for naught,

Those who SELL their own Words will NEVER sell the WORD or Regulative Principle.


You DRINK the Spirit or Word: be aware of people who want you to RUB SHOULDERS WITH A SPIRIT: HIS NAME WILL BE APOLLON-ABADDON.

The Pagan GRACES were blue-eyed prostitutes or Muses or Locusts.
The Christian GRACE hath appeared TEACHING us.

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the WORDS of the prophecy of this book,
        If any man shall ADD unto these things,
        God shall ADD unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Re.22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,
        God shall take away his part out of the book of life,
        and out of the holy city,

THE FOUNTAIN OF REJECTING THE OLDEN SCRIPTURE: Lipscomb University Claims that that Scripture is understood and BECOMES inspired when we ask WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME.

"The DBS is a God-honoring and God-exalting process. People directly engage and rub up against God’s word. In doing so, He—He alone—receives the glory as He proves Himself faithful over and over again as HE enlightens the hearts of people to discover who He is directly from His word.

The Spirit OF Christ commanded that no one SELL His Word.

Wherefore DO YOU SPEND MONEY for that which is not bread?
        and your labour for that which satisfieth not?
        hearken diligently unto me,
        and EAT ye that which is good,
        and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Isa 55:2

Because our God is a PATRIARCH the only always-commanded words are SPEAK or READ and never SING or PLAY which is a gender marker.

Spirit literally means WIND: nothing more or nothing less.  It is used FIGURATIVELY of the "BREATH" of God.

There is no "THE" Holy Spirit. God is Holy Spirit which means WHOLLY Spirit without flesh and bones. SPIRIT is the BREATH of God which reveals the WORDS of God. Jesus articulates the WORD ONLY and He said MY WORD is SPIRIT and LIFE.

The word OF is a preposition. No theoloogy "selling learning at retail" has ever been caught in Text books, sermons or blogs allowed to know that the Spirit OF Christ is the Spirit or MIND of Christ.   The inventors and writers of the "trias concept" along with the Campbells in the American Restoration Movement.

Theophilus the definition of Trias but never as three "persons" before H. Leo Boles.

And first, they taught us with one consent that God made all things out of nothing; for nothing was coeval with God: but He being His own place, and wanting nothing,
........... and existing before the ages, willed to make man by whom He might be known;
........... for him, therefore, He prepared the world.
........... For he that is created is also needy; but he that is uncreated stands in need of nothing.

God, then, having His own Word internal within His own bowels,
........... begat Him, emitting Him
........... along with His own wisdom before all things.

He had this Word as a helper in the things that were created by Him, and by Him He made all things.

He is called "governing principle", because He rules, and is Lord of all things fashioned by Him.
He, then, being
Spirit of God, and governing principle, and wisdom, and power of the highest,
came down upon the prophets
, and through them spoke of the creation of the world and of all other things. 
(This was the Spirit of Christ, 1 Peter 1:11; Revelation 19:10)

For the prophets were not when the world came into existence,

but the wisdom [Spirit in this instance is Sophia] of God which was in Him, and
........... His holy Word which was always present with Him.

The Holy Spirit becomes the Teacher. It gets the teacher, dvds, and other ‘book studies’ out of the way, allowing the “True Teacher” –the Holy Spirit—to enter and teach. There is a dependency on God to reveal Truth—and He does—every time.

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees (clergy) hypocrites. In Isaiah 29 and Ezekiel 33 which will not be covered in this study, the Spirit OF Christ named preachers for hire, singers and instrument players. This was the MARK that people are not going to let Jesus be the Teacher.


This is mocking God who through the Prophets and Jesus defined the future REST both inclusively and exclusively.  We want to be charitable and say that they are just Biblically illiterate but Peter in  Ephesians 4 denied "unity in diversity" and said that the self-authoring preachers, singers or instrument players are LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

2Pet. 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
        through the knowledge of God, [Theos]  |
        and                                                              John says that ANTICHRISTS deny that.  The ONE GOD breathes (spirit) and Jesus speaks.
        of Jesus our Lord [Kurios]                         
2Pet. 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us
        all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
        through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Peter would write HIS memory as a eye-- and ear-- witness:

2Pet. 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent
        to put you always in remembrance of these things,
        though ye know them, and be established in the present truth
2Pet. 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle,
        to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
2Pet. 1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle,
        even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
2Pet. 1:15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease
        to have these things always in remembrance.

Jesus said that Doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge. Beware of these people who declare that Peter was a liar.

Timothy wants BOTH men and women to be SILENT because neither have a jot or tittle to add to the Word or Regulative principle

1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved,
        and to come unto the knowledge of the truth
1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
        and one MEDIATOR between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

The "another" or different in being IN SPIRIT Comforter has a NAME. The Glorified Jesus is HOLY SPIRIT and there is no THE holy spirit or Wind or Breath: Parables to hide from the clergy says Jesus.

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father,
        Jesus Christ the righteous:

If you say that the commanded teaching by Jesus Christ have been TERMINATED and an imagined spirit PERSON has replaced the Scripture then the rest of us are obligated to call you a Made-Off.

John says that if you deny that ONE GOD and ONE Mediator or Son then you are ANTICHRIST and that is why you refuse to teach that which has been taught.

The ONLY personified Spiritus is named Apollon or Abaddon: He is the leader of the Muses or LOCUSTS or musical worship teams.

Lipscomb University: God delights in speaking through people; He speaks through His word and through people to reveal Himself in the DBS process. That is spectacular to see unfold. No kidding, it is an adventure each time.

God HAS SPOKEN and Peter said that the Revelation of the Prophets to the Apostles was not subject to Private Interpretation or further expounding: this would REPUDIATE God who BREATHED or INspirit Jesus to make the Prophets more certain.

Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
        and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
        neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
        and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Lipscomb University  The DBS disciples and inherently makes disciples. So far, I’ve done the DBS about 150 times. Never once (and there is no exaggeration here) has the ball fumbled down the field—not once. It is stunning every time—especially with those who are seeking or who are young in their walk with Christ. And it is refreshing and rehabilitating for those of us who think we’ve been discipled and are good disciplers.

Dopey Dan, God beat you to it just to MARK you:

Matt. 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name [singular] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
         and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

DBS repudiates God, His Revelation, Jesus Christ, the Apostles and Historic "Apostolic" Christianity:

Lipscomb University: The DBS is relentless in shepherding towards transformational living through: personal authenticity, accountability, personal responsibility, evangelism, prayer, and acts of service.

Blasphemer, God beat you to it:

Rom. 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
        that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
        holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Reasonable worship is Rational Worship OF the LOGOS: It is the Regulative Principle exclusive of personal opinions, personal experiences, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing.

Rom. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:
        but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Rom. 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you,
        not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think;
        but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Col. 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Lipscomb University:  People often tire of a study, but I’ve not experienced anyone “tiring” of the DBS process because it is so natural, engaging, and empowering. Who gets tired of encountering the God of the Universe?

It will be helpful to suppliment this Baptist and Lipscomb material so that "hyperlinking" is removed.

First, God the Father gave Jesus the Son the Biblical way to Make Disciples.  Jesus does not pray for any World View: the world or Kosmos is the kingdom of the Devil. The Devil works really hard (legalism) because he knows that he has a short kairos left. The sounds like musical instruments heard in the new Zion is a sign of Judgment and the command is to GO preach the gospel.  Jesus came to seek and save a tiny little flock of lost spirits as lambs in the midst of those OF the World.
Matt. 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
        because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent,
        and hast revealed them unto babes.
Matt. 11:26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Matt. 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Luke 4:43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

The Kingdom does not come with religious observations or lying wonders. The Muses or Locusts led by Apollon-Abaddon are tasked to COLLECT the masses or BEAST people marked by "a new style of music or Satyric Drama."

Making and Teaching the Word is the one-piece pattern: the evangelist is not building towers but seeking lost spirits.  Jude made the musical idolatry at mount Sinai as a warning of those evil spirits predestined to try to make the lambs dumb.

Any minister (slave) of God will obey the direct command:

Rom. 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum,
        I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
Rom. 15:20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel,
        not where Christ was named,
        lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:

When the gospel has been preached and recorded the direct command is to PREACH the Word (regulative principle) by READING the Word.

The Little Flock called the WAY that is a SECT is Narrow and Exclusive: the kingdom does not come with observations which are defined as lying wonders. We are saved or KEPT SAFE by Grace (which teaches) through Faith meaning to comply.

For [20] neither the fiery fox nor loud-roaring lions change their nature.
God breathed (spirit) into the prophets as "the Spirit OF Christ."  This was the present and future PATTERN for the Godly people whom God quarantined from the Jacob-Cursed and God-abandoned Levites.

God breathed into Jesus of Nazareth without measure or musical meter: Jesus then spoke the Word knowing that music destroyed the learning process.

God's message is that he that plants, waters and labors SHALL eat
It is the GIFT of God.  You have to DILIGENTLY SEEK God:

Isaiah 55 defining the WORD with the SPIRIT or Mind of God: Word or Logos outlaws rhetoric, personal opinions, personal experiences, singing, playing instruments or acting.

So then, if you are well informed as to what is good or bad among these wares, it will be safe for you to buy doctrines from Protagoras or from anyone else you please: but if not, take care, my dear fellow, that you do not risk your greatest treasure on a toss of the dice.

Peter said that the Prophets whom Jesus made more perfect are not available for private interpretation or further expounding. He left this as the mark of false teachers. 

Genesis 1:1-25  The Creation Story: God Created the World

, you should remind your students that Jesus defined Holy Scriptures and the Prophets who defined the REST for the godly Jews and the future church both inclusively and exclusive and other passages which spoke of him.  The Spirit OF Christ in the prophets warns against the lying pen of the Scribe. Jesus defined them as hypocrites as sel-authoring speakers, singers or instrument players.

Second, Moses wrote an inverted version of the Babylonian Clay tablets to define God as the servant of His Creation and His children do not serve Him or owe him anything.

Third, He wrote this as a warning to those whom God abandoned because of Instrumental-trinitarian-Idolatry at Mount Sinai.

Fourth, God, Amos and Stephen says that as a result of this idolatry God sentenced them to captivity and death in Assyria and Babylon.

Gen. 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Exodus 12:1-28

The Passover celebrated the escape from Egypt as Sin (Bondage)

In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. Ezek 45:21
And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering. Ezek 45:22
And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the Lord, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering. Ezek 45:23And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah. Ezek 45:24
In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering, according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and according to the oil. Ezek 45:25

THUS saith the Lord God; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days;
        but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened. Ezek 46:1

Leviticus 4:1-35  Redemption: The Sacrificial System

Because of Instrumental-Trinitarian-Idolatry at Mount Sinai God turned the Israelites over to worship the starry host: the prophesying with instruments was soothsaying-sorcery and to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" as the universal meaning of worship music.

God did not COMMAND that to which he ABANDONED the Jews after their musical idolatry.

Is. 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD,
        ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

Is. 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD:
         I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts;
        and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

Is. 1:12 When ye come to appear before me,
        who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

Is. 1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me;
        the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies,
        I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

Is. 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
        they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

Is. 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands,
        I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers,
        I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

This is the Christ Promise repeated by Mark 16 about baptism.

Is. 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Is. 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Is. 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
        though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
        though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Is. 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Is. 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel,
        ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Jeremiah 7 and the Law of Silence: Christ repudiates the sacrificial system

Stand in the gate of the Lords house [courts], and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord. Jeremiah 7:2

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
        Amend your ways and your doings,
        and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Jeremiah 7:3 

God did NOT command king, kingdom, temple, animal slaughter or the Levites making EXORCISM noises.

Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, T
        he temple of the Lord, are these. Jeremiah 7:4

Jesus called the Scribes, hypocrites: in Ezekiel 33 Christ named speakers for HIRE, singers or instrument players.

For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings;
        if ye thoroughly
execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; Jeremiah 7:5 

If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow,
shed not innocent blood in this place,
        neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Jeremiah 7:6 

Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. Jeremiah 7:7

Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Jeremiah 7:8
        For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor commanded them
        in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,
       concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22

Isaiah 8 is SKIPPED perhaps intentionally as the mark of ANTICHRIST.

Isa 8:19And when they shall say unto you,
        Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,
        and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter:
                should not a people seek unto their God?
                for the living to the dead
The Jews had a Covenant with DEATH and HELL:

Is. 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled,
         and your agreement with hell shall not stand;
        when the overflowing scourge shall pass through,
        then ye shall be trodden down by it.

Yet they seek [as a Necromancer]  me daily,
delight to know my ways [Seek like a necromancer],
as (if they were) a nation that did righteousness,

Thus honor accrued to divine poets, and their songs. After these, excellent Homer and Tyrtaeus animated the manly mind to martial achievements with their verses.
