Study Guide Bible Lesson 14: Samson Chooses Unwisely

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20for you were bought at a price. So, glorify God with your body.

  1. A Nazirite is defined as one who was set apart for God’s special purposes.
  2. Nazirite – He or she was to never cut his or her hair, never eat any part of grapes or drink strong drink, never eat anything unclean, and never go near or touch a dead body.
  3. A vow is defined as a solemn promise or pledge.
  4. The omnipotence of God was evident when Samson’s mother, who had not been able to have children, became pregnant and gave birth to a son.
  5. God told Samson’s parents that Samson would begin to free the Israelites from the Philistine rule.
  6. Sometimes God calls people to begin a task that someone else will finish.
  7. God’s Spirit was revealed in Samson’s life through his supernatural strength. This strength was to be used in judgment against the Philistines.
  8. Samson broke his Nazirite vow when he ate honey that came from dead animal carcass and allowed his hair to be cut. He probably also failed at being a Nazirite by drinking alcoholic drinks at a feast.
  9. Samson’s main problem was he often followed his fleshly desires instead of God’s will. This was frequently shown in his interest in the wrong women.
  10. Samson’s sin led to his own death when he allowed himself to fall in love with Delilah and to reveal the secret of his strength.
  11. The Philistines captured Samson, blinded him, bound him with chains, made him grind grain in prison, and mocked him at celebrations of the false god Dagon.
  12. Samson was deceived, captured, and humiliated; he pulled down the temple, killing himself along with 3,000 Philistine leaders.
  13. Samson destroyed the Philistines’ central place of worship.
  14. God’s Word and the Holy Spirit help believers identify sin and avoid dangerous choices.
  15. Believers make choices every day. Ignoring the Holy Spirit’s prompting results in poor choices, which create a poor reputation.
  16. Poor choices can limit the release of God’s power in a person’s life. Even though Samson did mighty things, he would have been much more effective if he had lived according to God’s ways.

Study Guide Bible Lesson 13: Thanksgiving

 

Memory Verse: Hebrews 13:15 Therefore through him let us continually offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of the lips that confess his name.  

  1. Thanksgiving is important because it reflects a relationship with God, a reliance on God, and rest in God.
  2. God’s chosen people in the Old Testament gave Him thank offerings to voluntarily show their gratitude for His person, power, and to celebrate with friends and family what the Lord had done.
  3. Jesus offered Himself as one sacrifice for all sins.
  4. Through Jesus, believers are able to fellowship and have a relationship with God.
  5. Many of the psalms express thanksgiving to God.
  6. A psalm is a poem or praise to God that is said or sung.
  7.  A psalmist is an author or writer of psalms.
  8. Christians are to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
  9. Jonah showed faith while still in the belly of the fish by declaring that God had already answered him.
  10. It is possible to give thanks during a hard situation. This is illustrated in Jonah’s story – while Jonah was still in the belly of the great fish, in faith he offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to God. The same illustration can be found in Hannah’s story – Hannah cried out to God in honesty during a difficult time and worshiped Him. She was thankful to God for His promise of a son, even though the promise was not yet fulfilled.
  11. In faith and thanksgiving Hannah dedicated her son, Samuel, to the Lord to serve under Eli.
  12. Christians should come before the Lord with prayers of thanksgiving in all circumstances, even in difficult trials.
  13. The Bible says to give thanks in every situation since this is God’s will.     (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
  14. A proper attitude during trials is to rejoice in them because they produce patience and completeness. It is also commanded by God.
  15. The giving of thanks during difficult situations, despite conflicting emotions, is a sign of mature faith in God. Rejoicing or thankfulness is more a choice than an emotion.

Science Chapter 3 Study Guide Test Thursday, November 17th

  1. organelle – one of several tiny structures within a cell
  2. cell membrane – a flexible structure that protects and controls what goes in and out of the cell
  3. cytoplasm – the jelly-like substance found inside the cell that contains organelles
  4. cell wall – the rigid outer layer that protects and supports plant cells
  5. DNA – the molecule that contains the genetic material of a cell
  6. chromosome – a structure located in the nucleus that contains DNA
  7. gene – a segment of DNA located on the chromosome that, among other things, controls specific traits
  8. trait – a characteristic that can be passed on to an organism’s offspring
  9. cell cycle – a series of events occurring during the life of a cell
  10. interphase – the stage of cell growth occurring at the beginning of the cell cycle
  11. mitosis – the stage of the cell cycle in which the cell’s nucleus divides in two
  12. cytokinesis – the final stage of the cell cycle in which the cytoplasm divides
  13. mutation – a change in the DNA sequence of a gene or chromosome
  14. cancer – a disease caused by cells that go through uncontrolled cell division
  15. The basic building blocks from which all living organisms are made are cells.
  16. There are 46 chromosomes in a normal human cell.
  17. The cell membrane protects and controls what moves in and out of the cells.
  18. DNA contains all the genetic information about the cell.
  19. While not all cells have a true nucleus, all cells must contain some form of DNA.
  20. Traits are controlled by the genes.
  21. The cell theory is all living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic unit of all organisms, and all cells come from other cells.
  22. The stage where the nucleus divides in two is mitosis.
  23. The stage the cell membrane of an animal looks as if it is being pinched in the middle is cytokinesis.
  24. The stage that uses the most time for cell growth is interphase.
  25. The three main stages of the cell cycle in order are interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
  26. Organisms inherit traits from their parents.
  27. Traits are determined by genes, which are made of DNA.
  28. DNA is made of tiny pieces that fit together in different patterns.
  29. Each DNA pattern is code that gives the cell instructions for each unique trait. Since there are so many patterns for each trait, each organism is unique.
  30. Cancer forms because sometimes the DNA in the cell gets damaged, causing mutation, which causes cells to function abnormally. The cells may begin to grow and divide too fast. Cancer forms when cells divide uncontrollably often forming tumors.
  31. Cells can grow and divide into layers. The layers will eventually become tissues.

Some tissues will become organs, and the organs will be arranged into organ systems.

Animal Cells- Irregular shape                Plant Cells- Cell Wall, Chloroplasts, Boxed shaped

Both animal cell and plant cells – cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, chromosomes, genes, DNA

  1. mitochondria – power house of the cell
  2. nucleus – controls the cell’s activities
  3. vacuole – In animal cells, the vacuole can hold food for later use or for waste removal. In plant cells, the vacuole is used to maintain water balance.

Study Guide Bible Lesson 13: Thanksgiving

Memory Verse: Hebrews 13:15 Therefore through him let us continually offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of the lips that confess his name.  

  1. Thanksgiving is important because it reflects a relationship with God, a reliance on God, and rest in God.
  2. God’s chosen people in the Old Testament gave Him thank offerings to voluntarily show their gratitude for His person, power, and to celebrate with friends and family what the Lord had done.
  3. Jesus offered Himself as one sacrifice for all sins.
  4. Through Jesus, believers are able to fellowship and have a relationship with God.
  5. Many of the psalms express thanksgiving to God.
  6. A psalm is a poem or praise to God that is said or sung.
  7. A psalmist is an author or writer of psalms.
  8. Christians are to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
  9. Jonah showed faith while still in the belly of the fish by declaring that God had already answered him.
  10. It is possible to give thanks during a hard situation. This is illustrated in Jonah’s story – while Jonah was still in the belly of the great fish, in faith he offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to God. The same illustration can be found in Hannah’s story – Hannah cried out to God in honesty during a difficult time and worshiped Him. She was thankful to God for His promise of a son, even though the promise was not yet fulfilled.
  11. In faith and thanksgiving Hannah dedicated her son, Samuel, to the Lord to serve under Eli.
  12. Christians should come before the Lord with prayers of thanksgiving in all circumstances, even in difficult trials.
  13. The Bible says to give thanks in every situation since this is God’s will (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
  14. A proper attitude during trials is to rejoice in them because they produce patience and completeness. It is also commanded by God.
  15. The giving of thanks during difficult situations, despite conflicting emotions, is a sign of mature faith in God. Rejoicing or thankfulness is more a choice than an emotion.
