This Week's Sermon ( 6-20-17 )

" Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?  "  Hebrews 1:14


Notice the writer of Hebrews said;

" heirs of salvation " 


I will be talking about salvation... what it is, the significance of it and the need for it before we physically die.

I will be talking about who saves us and from what.

I will be talking about how in God's eyes, there are only 2 categories of human beings...the saved and the unsaved.

I will be talking about how you do not need to fear death, wondering what will happen to you after death, if you even believe you will exist after you draw your last breath in this life...as many do not.

I will be talking about the fact that there is only one way to Heaven...not multiple ways, as many believe.

I will be talking about how no human being can earn their entrance into Heaven...even though many people think they are good enough for Heaven.

I will be talking about the fact there is a literal hell that does exist...as many do not believe.

Join me as I discuss these topics.

This Week's Sermon: ( 3-29-16 )

" For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. "   Hebrews 4:15


" These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. "   John 16:33

I have discussed some of the reasons God chose to become a human being, the main reason being, to keep those of us who believe in His Son Jesus, out of eternal hell.

My friend, merely believing in God and that there is a God does not save us from eternal hell.

We must also believe in Jesus.

Jesus clearly said;

" Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  John 14:1

God wants fellowship with as many human beings as willingly will choose to believe in His Son, Jesus, unto eternal life.

Another reason God became a flesh and blood human being was to find out what it is like to be one of His own creation with all our weaknesses.

God wanted to subject Himself to temptation and experience our temptations, as the writer of Hebrews said;

" ...but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. "


In the human flesh of God's existence He actually " learned " obedience;

" Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; "   Hebrews 5:8

Also, in God's childhood growing up, He learned obedience;

" And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. "   Luke 2:51-52

As a result, because God overcame in His flesh, by our faith in Jesus we can also be overcomers and we can now have a relationship with God as He wants to have with us.

If we belong to God and continue to abide in Him, through our faith in His Son, Jesus, He shares everything He has with us for all eternity.

Wow!

Give your heart to Jesus before you die and stay with Jesus to the end.

This Week's Sermon: ( 3-23-16 )

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.  "   John 3:16


While it is true Jesus died to set us free from sin, the bondage of sin and being a slave to sin;

" Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. "   Romans 6:18

" But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. "  Romans 6:22-23


Paul knew that the main reason ( though not the only reason ) God became a flesh and blood human being and died on the cross, was to keep us out of eternal hell - that is, those of us who choose to believe in Jesus.

 

Jesus said again;

" And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. "   John 3:14-15

God knew even before He created this planet that He would become a human being and die on the cross for us;

" And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. "   Revelation 13:8

" In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; "   Titus 1:2

When Adam and Eve became separated from the living God by their act of disobedience, God wanted to buy the human race back through His shed blood, death and resurrection so we can live with Him for all eternity, rather than spend eternity in hell.

God wants fellowship with us, His created beings.

This is why He died for us.

Unfortunately, what most people do not believe is that we must rest our faith in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, and in Him alone, in order to escape eternal hell.

Jesus admitted that few will actually believe in Him as being quite literally the only way to Heaven, and this is sad, since He died for all people.

" Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it  "    Matthew 7:14

Salvation is for anyone... whosoever will believe.

" That whosoever believeth in Him...  "   John 3:15

Before you die, put your faith in Jesus, just as the criminal on the cross did just hours before he died.

This Week's Sermon: ( 3-8-16 )

Just as Jesus expounded all the Scriptures in the Old Testament concerning Himself to Cleopas and his friend on the road to Emmaus, likewise Paul expounded all the Scriptures in the Old Testament concerning Jesus to the Jews in Rome;

" And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.  "   Acts 28:23-24

This is the situation.

Just as some believed what Paul taught, some did not believe.

Same as today.

There are some today who believe Jesus is Jehovah in the Old Testament and that Jesus is the One prophesied in the Old Testament to become a human being, the only begotten Son of God, and that Jesus is God who became flesh and dwelt among us...and some, as in Paul's day, who will not believe.

Jesus said clearly;

" I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. "    Revelation 1:8

Micah prophesied about Jesus;

" But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. "   Micah 5:2

The Hebrew word translated " everlasting " means, the days of eternity.

Interestingly, even though John said...

" In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. "   John 1:1-3

and later said in his epistle;

" For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. "   1 John 5:7

there are people who do not believe that Jesus and the Word are the same person.

Again, as with anything else in the Holy Bible, we can choose to reject what we want to reject and believe what we want to believe.

The choice is ours.

My friend, God is amazing.

Jesus said clearly;

" I and my Father are one.

Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. "   John 10:30-31

God the Father, God the Son ( Jesus ) and God the Holy Spirit are not 3 Gods but one in the same God.

Moses said;

" Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. "   Deuteronomy 6:4-5

There is a reason God became a human being and as incredible as it may seem, quite literally became His own Son in human flesh, blood and bone.

I will continue with this.
