Temple Baptist Church - 6-3-2018Romans 8:18-21Introduction:A. Last week, we took a short look at the suffering of this present time. Life is hard; life is unfair; life can both physically and spiritually crush you if you allow it to do so. There are times when I am disappointed, hurt, angry, confused, and just plain tired of life. In these verses, Paul gets the spiritual eyes of the Roman believers on the future instead of this present, evil world.B. One of my favorite songs says, “It will be worth it all when we see Jesus; life's trials will seem so small, when we see Christ. One look at His dear face, all sorrows will erase; so bravely run the race, ‘til we see Christ.”1. Verse 18, we see the comparison. “Not worthy to be compared.”2. Verse 19, we see the expectation. “The manifestation of the sons of God.”3. Verses 20-21, we see the deliverance from corruption. “From the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” C. The song writer got a spiritual glimpse of the glory to come: “Oh, that will be glory for me, glory for me. When by His grace I shall look on His face, that will be glory, be glory for me!”D. The glory which shall be revealed. It will be revealed “in” us as well as to us. Let me clarify the use of the preposition “in.” Many years ago, when we went to the Grand Canyon, I looked at it through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy. Being raised in Kentucky, I had seen strip pits all my life. We swam in these abandoned surface coal mines. My thought was that the Grand Canyon was the biggest gully that I had ever see. My day said that if he had been there when that thing started and had a couple of bales of hay, he could have stopped it. Most see it in wonder and awe. Everyone sees the same thing with their eyes but their perspective is different. When we get to heaven, we will all see the same thing, but our inward perspective will be the same.1. The Glory of Seeing Christ! For the first time, we will see Christ—not as we imagine Him to be—but as He is.John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.Jude 24-25 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, (25) To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.2. The Glory of Experiencing A New Body!Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.1 Corinthians 15:51-54 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: (21) Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.3. The Glory of Our Eternal Home! Heaven and earth will exceed all our expectations! 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.Revelation 21:1-2 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (2) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.John 14:1-2 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. (2) In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.4. The Glory of Former Things Passed Away! One of the greatest things about heaven is what will not be there!2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.Revelation 21:4-5 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
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”
As Moses led the people of Israel away from their bondage in Egypt and to the land God had promised them, they were not alone. God escorted them. He manifested Himself by a pillar of cloud by day. At night, He made His presence known as a pillar of fire. “And the LORD went before Read More
