Temple Baptist Church - 5-16-20182 Peter 2:9-22Introduction:A. We need to remember our context tonight to get the proper meaning of the verses that I will deal with. I am going to look at these verses in reverse order to show who these people are and how they got here.B. Verses 20-22 have been used more by way of application than contextual interpretation. 1. I fear that the true meaning of these verses has been lost because of topical peaching. YOU MUST always give a Biblical interpretation of a verse before making a practical interpretation! 2. This is simply Biblical Hermeneutics. It is called the Context Mention of Bible Interpretation. When taking a verse out of its context, it often becomes a pretext! Great application but no Biblical interpretation. This can lead to serious doctrinal problems.3. It lends itself to Biblical ignorance which destroys the people of God. God's people are destroyed for a “lack of knowledge.” Preaching through the Bible book by book establishes the people of God doctrinally.C. When you get to these verses, the context has not changed as the first word of verse 20 in the word “For.” The Holy Spirit is now going to draw a conclusion to chapter two. Chapter two begins and ends with false teachers!D. In verses 20-22, these Old Testament false prophets and New Testament false teachers did not lose their salvation, they were never saved. You can wash them all that you want to make the outside smell a little better, but that does not change their inward nature: dogs are dogs and hogs are hogs! 1. Their Dereliction. “falling away”2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition …2 Peter 2:17-20 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.a. Many used the Greek word for “falling away,” which gives us a commonly used word “apostasy.” The words “falling away” give us the actual meaning of “falling away from a former position.” To fall away from something, you must have once stood for something!b. These “dogs” and “hogs” vomited up and left their wallowing in the mire. The “dog” detested but later invested in heresy. The “hog” detested the mire but later returned to its filth.2. Their Deception.a. Their damnableness. 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.b. Their deceiving. 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means …1) “spirit” A spirit that is disobedient to the Scriptures. Teachers who teach and act contrary to clear Scripture and say that they are led by the Holy Spirit.2) “word” A message that does not comply with the Scriptures. Man-made doctrines that do not line up with the clear doctrinal teaching of the Scriptures.3) “letter as from us” A false “word of God” that takes precedent over “The Word of God.” False “bibles” from perverted underlying texts that bring about confusion over what is or is not Scripture.c. Their being deceived. 2 Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.3. Their Damnation.a. Their return. 2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.b. Their accountability. 2 Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.c. Their damnation. Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Temple Baptist Church - 5-13-2018Proverbs 18:22Introduction: A. Mother's Day is one of the most special days of the year. Proverbs 31:29 says, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” B. This morning, I want to rise up, call you ladies blessed, praise you! Our ladies are so very special and need to be praised every day of the year. God bless each of you this Mother's Day.C. It is interesting what some great people have said concerning their mothers. The mother has a tremendous influence for either good or evil in the lives of the children.1. Washington Irving – “The love of a real mother is never exhausted. It never changes-it never tires-it endures through all; in good repute, in bad repute, in the face of the world's condemnation, a mother's love still lives on.”2. Charles Spurgeon – “I cannot tell how much I owe to the prayers of my good mother…I remember her once praying, “Now Lord, if my children go on in sin it will not be from ignorance that they perish, and my soul must bear swift witness against them at the day of judgment if they lay not hold on Christ and claim Him as their personal Savior.”3. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan had 4 sons and they were all preachers. Someone once came into the drawing room when all the family was there. They thought they would see what Howard, one of the sons, was made of so they asked him this question: “Howard, who is the greatest preacher in your family?” Howard had a great admiration for his father and he looked straight across at him and then, without a moments hesitation, he answered, “Mother.”4. May R. Coker – “Motherhood is the greatest privilege of life.”5. Abraham Lincoln – “No man is poor who has had a godly mother.”6. Seen on a church sign: “If evolution is true, how come mothers still have only two hands?”D. I read this somewhere a few years ago and loved it. How moms are made: She must be completely washable, but not plastic; have 200 moveable parts, all replaceable; run on black coffee and leftovers; have a lap that can hold three children at one time that disappears when she stands up; have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart; and have six pairs of hands. She must have 3 pairs of eyes. One pair of eyes is to see through the closed door as she asks the children what they are doing even though she already knows. Another pair in the back of the head is to see what she needs to know even though no one thinks she can. The third pair is in the front of the head. They are for looking at an errant child and saying that she understands and loves him or her without even saying a single word. She heals herself when she is sick and can feed a family of six on a pound of hamburger and can get a nine-year-old to stand in the shower. Se is made both soft and tough. She can endure and accomplish anything. She will be able to think, reason, and negotiate. She has tears as her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her disappointment, her pain, her loneliness, and her grief. SHE IS BOTH SPECIAL AND SPECIALLY MADE!!! 1. Good women are getting like “hen's teeth!” They are scarce and hard to find, but, thank God, there are still some young ladies being raised for the Lord in such a manner as to make good, godly wives.2. Any woman can become a good woman if she so desires. Godly wives and mothers are made as well as raised. Some of you ladies may not have had the privilege of being raised in a godly, separated home, but you can give your life to the Lord and become as godly as one raised.3. The word “find” does not mean to stumble upon, but rather to make a diligent search. Young men, do not fall for the first pretty face that you see because the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Allow your parents to be involved in the selection of a mate for life! Man looks upon the outward, but God looks upon the heart!4. Find – to obtain by seeking - Matthew 7:7-10 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? (If you seek right, the Lord will give you the right mate!)E. I want to look at four women found in the Book of Proverbs, the Book of Wisdom.1. The Gracious Woman - Proverbs 11:16 A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches. GRACIOUS - Favorable; kind; benevolent; merciful; disposed to forgive offenses and impart unmerited blessings. (A mother has the same attributes in many ways that God has.)a. A Gracious Woman Is Forgiving Woman - Nehemiah 9:17 And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not. b. A Gracious Woman Is Kind Woman - Luke 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?c. A Gracious Woman Is Favorable Woman - Proverbs 18:22 Whosofindeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. (She brings the blessings of God on a home!)2. The Virtuous Woman - Proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.a. A Virtuous Woman Is A Moral Woman - 1 Timothy 2:9-10 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.b. A Virtuous Woman Is An Asset To Her Husband - Proverbs 12:4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed isas rottenness in his bones.3. The Wise Woman - Proverbs 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.a. The Wise Woman Builds Her House - Titus 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.b. The Foolish Woman Destroys Her House – “plucketh it down with her hands!”4. The God Fearing Woman - Proverbs 31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beautyis vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.a. The God Fearing Woman Is A Saved Woman - 1 Peter 3:2-4 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. (3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; (4) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.b. The God Fearing Woman Is A Trusted Woman - Proverbs 31:11-12 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. (12) She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.c. The God Fearing Woman Is An Appreciated Woman - Proverbs 31:28-31 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. (29) Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. (30) Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. (31) Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates. 1) By Her Children – “her children” 2) By Her Husband – “her husband” 3) By Her Acquaintances – “in the gates” 4) By Her Lord – “shall be praised”
When Vision Baptist Church was officially started in March of 2006 we had all the dreams and desires of most church plants. We prayed that God would use our combined efforts to see people come to know Christ and become followers of Him. It was also our desire that God would use our new church plant to be a place that people could be equipped for missions service. Over the last 12 years God has been very gracious to us and allowed us to see this dream become a reality! In the summer of 2005 a handful of use moved to Alpharetta. We started to learn the “lay of the land” and begin meeting people. One night a group of us decided to go to “Meetup” where people were learning spanish. Being that we spent time together in Peru, South America most of the group knew some spanish and thought it would be a great way to meet some people we could talk to about Jesus and let them know about the new church that would be started the following year. At that meeting we met a very, young Miguel Sanabria. I believe he was a sophomore in HIgh School […]
We had a wonderful time this Sunday here at Vision Baptist Church. It was our Mother’s Day Sunday service, and we also had a baptism service. Jeff Bush baptized his children Alexa and Hudson, and then, Ben Johnson baptized his daughter Evie during our Sunday morning service. Then, Bro. John Pearson gave us our offering devotion out of Revelation 18 Then, we had special music by Jessyca McKinnon and David Burkhart with Kristen Mize on piano singing “Your Grace Still Amazes Me.” Then, Bro. Gardner preached a message on being a parent worthy of honor from Ephesians 6. Then, on Sunday evening, Dustin Brown was presented with his arrow as he begins deputation to the country of Turkey. Brett Broadrick, our WEC representative for Asia, gave a report on the country of Nepal, and missionaries Paul and Amber Taube, and missionary interns Justus and Courtney Mize. Then, Nate Wilkerson was our 5 minute preacher and he brought us a message from James 3. We had special music performed by James Byrapaka and Chris Fies. Then, Bro. Gardner preached from 1 Kings 15 and 2 Chronicles 13. If you would like to view this service, please check […]
Dear Friends,Bishop Robert Barron recently wrote a concise yet profound reflection on John 17:1-11. Here it is in full (emphasis mine):“Friends, Jesus’ prayer in today’s Gospel sums up his wonderful work as he is about to return to his Father. Jesus was, in his very person, the meeting of heaven and earth. God and humanity came together in him, and his entire ministry was the outward expression of that inward identity. By calling a scattered Israel to unity, inviting the poor to table fellowship, healing the sick in body and heart, and embodying the path of forgiveness and love, Jesus was bringing God’s will and purpose to earth.Now, in his Passion and Death, Jesus brought heaven all the way down into the world. He carried the divine light into the darkest places of the human condition—hatred, cruelty, violence, corruption, stupidity, suffering, and death itself—and thereby transformed them. And the proof that heaven is able to transform earth is, of course, the Resurrection. Now we know that cruelty, hatred, violence, fear, suffering, and death are not the most powerful forces in the world. Now we know that the divine love is more powerful. God’s kingdom has, in principle, broken the kingdoms of the world, which thrive upon, and in turn produce, those very negativities.”This is a great reminder for believers to not be afraid of witnessing this divine love to those who do not believe. Christ has transformed even the worst thing that can possibly happen in life—death. We truly have nothing to fear.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC MediaOne Year Later: The Impact of President Trump’s Executive Order Protecting Religious Liberty – Travis WeberFairfax County School Board to Teach Kids: “Biological Sex Is Meaningless” – Cathy RuseRemembering the Little Ones Up Above on Mother’s Day – Dan HartSponsors of California’s AB 2943 Claim It Wouldn’t Ban the Bible.
