When Is A Blessing Not A Blessing?       Mid-1990s
Ogwyn relates the history of a time of great prosperity in both Israel and Judah, yet all the while, devastating prophecies were being made against them. That prosperity disappeared in a mere 20 years as the prophecies came true. Times of plenty can lead to spiritual lethargy. Their religion was just form, not substance. Ogwyn shows what we should do and why, in order to avoid the same tendency and the same fate.

The Work of God       January 7, 1995
The Spirit of the Law       Jan 14, 1995
“As many as are of the works of the law are under a curse.” “The curse of the law.” Given during the heart of the Tkachian rebellion in the Worldwide Church of God, Ogwyn addresses the law and its role in the life of the Christian, including explanations of the above scriptures. Covered: The law of God is eternal; The law that was added; Without the law there is no sin; The difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant is not the law , but where the law is written; The spirit of the law maximizes the law and includes the letter.

Moses & Christ - Friends Forever       Mar 25, 1995
Ogwyn discusses the unity of Moses and Christ and how they were not opposites. Both taught the law, mercy, judgment. Both were mediators of a covenant. Christ taught was Moses said, and what Moses said came from Christ. Yet, Jesus Christ is about a spiritual transformation. He amplified the law that is now written on the hearts of men rather than tablets of stone. When Christ returns, the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb will both be sung, for they are really one song.
7 Steps to Overcoming       April 15, 1995
Given on the First Day of Unleavened Bread. To observe the Passover and not to observe the feast is to miss out on what salvation is all about. God took the initiative in forgiving us, but we must respond. If you’re never tempted, you don’t have anything to overcome. Overcoming goes beyond will power. How? If you’re going to kill the weeds, you’ve got to kill the root. You can change the action without changing the heart, but it is impossible to change the heart and not change the action. What comes out of the heart had to first be put in. How do you genuinely, truly overcome? Ogwyn provides 7 steps to overcoming, one for each of the 7 days of the feast.
