Temple Baptist Church - 3-14-20182 Peter 2:1-9Introduction:A. Though all of this has been prophesized for thousands of years, it still amazes this preacher that America has gone so spiritually “south.” In my lifetime, I have witnessed the decline in every major denomination.1. Older people, who have seen this change come, have evidently gotten used to the dark because they refuse to “come out from among them.” Just because Granny is buried in the church cemeteries, they remain faithful to these liberal churches and will be buried there too.2. Younger people, who have never known the old paths of their fathers, now run after these false prophets who are leading contrary to the Word of God.B. We know what time it is and, yet, lose so many to follow their pernicious (wicked) ways. They speak evil of those who hold to the truth of God's Word and the multitudes are in agreemet with them.2 Timothy 3:13-17; 4:1-4 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (14) But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; (15) And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works … (4:1) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (3) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; (4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.2 Thessalonians 2:1-5 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; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?1. Lucifer beguiled the angels in heaven to rebel against God.2. The satanic serpent beguiled Eve in the beginning.3. False Prophets in the Old Testament led the people astray.4. Pharisees of the times of Christ found fault and led to the crucifixion of Christ.5. Judaizing teachers followed the Apostle Paul and led the people away from his teachings.5. False teachers in churches and seminaries have challenged the Word of God in our day and turned the multitudes from the Bible by undercutting its purity and authority.C. Why do so many reject the Truth? You would think that everyone would follow truth, but this is not the case. They follow those who speak evil of truth instead. Why does the world choose to reject the truth of God's Word. And follow these false teachers?1. They do not want an authoritative Bible. If the Bible is God's Word, and it is, then they would have to submit to that authority. The world rejects the Bible without ever reading it. They have no personal knowledge of truth and follow those who pervert the truth.2. They do not want a salvation that changes the heart and desires. The world loves their sin and is not willing to give it up for a holy life. The world rejects righteousness and chooses to follow those who promote unrighteousness.3. The god of this world has done a good job of blinding their minds to the gospel. The gospel gives salvation to all who come to Christ by faith. The world rejects the concept that few are going to heaven and the many are on the broad way to hell. The gospel is exclusive!4. The false religions appeal to the flesh. The world loves worldliness and false teachers who make their message appealing to the sinful. Sinners are sinners by birth and sinners by choice. The world wants a religion that requires nothing and judges nothing. The Word of God condemns sin and judges it.5. The minds of the multitudes has been programed to think according to the philosophy of the world. This world has gone mad. Our children are being raised up in an ungodly world where common sense and right is labeled as the enemy of society. Their thinking is perverted and that is the reason that our minds must be renewed through God's Word.D. Why do so many professing Christians reject the truth? People who have known truth, people who were raised in truth, follow those who attack and speak evil of the truth. They leave good churches for ones that do not preach on sin, practical sanctification, and service.1. Because they reject God's command of distinction! We that are saved are not of this world! We are new creatures, we are different, and we are the enemy.Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Transformation to Christ comes through the renewing of our minds and the renewing of our mind comes through the Word of God. We are to love God, not the world. People follow their pernicious ways because of their affinity with the world.)2. Because of their love for sinfulness! God's people love God! But, as sinfulness comes, that first love begins to cool.Matthew 24:11-12 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. (12) And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (The preaching of our day is mostly exhortational and positive were as Biblical preaching is mostly reproving and rebuking.)2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (Notice the Biblical order of preaching. This does not mean that the pastor is hateful or always negative. The key to reproving and rebuking is longsuffering and doctrine. Longsuffering shows compassion while doctrine does the rest. People do not want a church whose doctrine is right.)3. Because the world has changed their thinking! We that are saved are being constantly bombarded with the philosophy of the world. 1 Corinthians 2:14-16 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (15) But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. (16) For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (We have the mind of Christ but have to allow that spiritual mind to operate within the realm of our thinking.)2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (I do not like to take a text our of its context but do want to make a spiritual application from this verse. Satan is busily seeking whom he may devour. He uses philosophy to get his work done.)4. Because of spiritual loneliness! If you live for Christ in these last days, you will have to travel the road less traveled. “Though none go with me, still I will follow” is easily sung but takes spiritual resolve to accomplish. The sword of division brought by Christ is a reality.2 Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
Temple Baptist Church - 4-29-20181 Samuel 17:1-11A. We all know well the story of David and Goliath. I want to make a practical application from these few verses this morning as I continue to preach on the subject of “The Local Church.”B. We know the story of David killing the Goliath after exclaiming, “Is there not a cause.” Many sermons have been preached on that subject, but I want to give an application to an important strategy of war. C. The armies of both the Philistines and Israel were afraid of coming down into the Valley of Elah and, for 40 days, had maintained the high ground that was found on either side.1 Samuel 17:3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.1 Samuel 17:16 And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.D. Let me give you some quick typology before I get into the message too deeply.1. The army of the Philistines is a type of the world. They hold their ground but challenge us to come down to the valley and fight their giant.2. The army of Israel a type of the people of God. As long as they hold the high ground, the enemy cannot defeat them.3. The valley is a type of Compromise. Notice that they are not challenged to come down for they will never give up their high ground.4. The giant a type of Satan. He is not of the children of God, he is the giant of this world!5. The 40 days is a type of testing. The giant of the valley of compromise never gives up!6. The challenging is a type of war. Give me a man to fight! If one of us goes down to fight the giant and loses the battle (and he will), then we all become servants of the world.E. Now for an example of what I am preaching about. July 1-3, 1863 was the Battle of Gettysburg. 1. The battle took place in Pennsylvania as the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, let the Army of Northern Virginia against the Union Army of the Potomac, led by General George G. Meade. This battle was the turning point of the Civil War as both sides had fought to a virtual stalemate. 2. General Robert E. Lee led his army into the heart of the Union north in an attempt to break the Union's back and bring the Civil War to an end. The result of the battle was app. 46,000-51,000 dead and the Civil War lost. 3. The key to the battle was that the Union army held the high ground and General Lee chose to fight there instead of retreat until another day. Though the Civil War would go on for another 2 years, the war was lost at Gettysburg.4. General Robert E. Lee was a brilliant general and well versed in the art of war but, for what ever reason, chose to violate an imperative strategy of war: always hold the high ground.F. In our story, we find both opposing armies holding their “high ground,” while a giant walked in the valley that lay between. In verse 10, the giant cried, “Give me a man!” Goliath was prepared to both fight and die in the valley. G. We, as independent Bible believing Baptists, have been often maligned as being legalistic and cultic because we have tried to maintain the “high ground” through the years. This is rapidly changing as many independent Baptist churches have given in to the pressure of compromise. They have chosen numbers and worldliness over worship in the beauty of holiness.H. I have been referred to by some as being to “straight laced,” too “old fashioned!” One man, as he was leaving our church for the last time said that he was “tired of the Independent Baptist mentality.” I am not mad at these people. I feel sorry for them because they have missed the point and do not understand why your pastor holds the church and pulpit to such high standards.I. Last week, we established that Christ is the Head of the Church and the Church belongs to Him. 2 Timothy 3:15 refers to the local church as the “House of God, which is the church of the living God.”J. The greatest danger of the church is not that we will suddenly leave our “high ground” for the “high ground” of the world. The greatest danger is that our church will slowly descend into the valley of compromise where we will find a “giant” who is willing to fight and die. That our church will take that first step towards compromise.K. When a local church begins down the road of compromise, it enters the valley where there is a “worldly giant” who is willing to fight and die for what he believes. The question must be asked, “Are we?” How do we maintain the “high ground?”L. Though there are many, I want to look at four “giants” that we will face if we begin our descent into the “valley of compromise.”1. There is a “giant of confusion” that awaits us in the “valley of compromise.” We MUST continue to honor the Word of God as the Final Authority for both faith and practice. The high ground” of the Biblical Singularity. We are all together on this subject but to slip is to eventually face a giant that we cannot defeat! Look at all the churches and schools who “gave an inch” to the new satanic versions. Once in the valley, there is no turning back. Biblical incorrectness is virtually uncorrectable.2. There is a “giant of ecumenism” that awaits us in the valley of compromise. We MUST continue to walk in the “good way” of the Old Paths of purity and surety. We must “hold the high ground” of doctrinal purity. We are who we are, Biblicists! We are independent Baptist in name, but the Bible is our standard. Just this week I was invited to a revival in town at another “Baptist” church. The person who invited me said that they missed the old days when Baptist, Methodists, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Catholic and other denominations came together for worship. Ecumenism is virtually uncorrectable.3. There is a “giant of liberalism” that awaits us in the “valley of compromise.” We MUST suffer the Word of Exhortation. Allowing the preaching to have free course. I try to come to this pulpit with something that will help you and me. I do my best to protect this pulpit by preemptively question each preacher that stands here. Men who stand here must be men of God and God never called a man to preach doctrinal error! Men who help me to live a more consistent life for Christ. As goes the pulpit, so goes the church.2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.2 Thessalonians 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:4. There is a “giant of worldliness” that awaits us in the valley of compromise.” We MUST give God the benefit of every doubt. Abstaining from all appearance of evil in every aspect of our worship. Maintaining holiness in our worship; maintaining integrity in our music; maintaining purity in our membership; maintaining love and forgiveness in our fellowship. Twice in the Book of Judges the Scripture says, “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Everyone's standards of music and dress are a little different so there must be a common standard that protects the convictions of everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. (All and always!)
Temple Baptist Church - 4-15-2018Mark 11:15-19Introduction:A. Lately, I have been preaching on the local church. As I was reading my Bible on the deck Saturday morning, these familiar verses stood out.B. In Matthew, Mark, and Luke we find the story of our Lord's entry into Jerusalem and His cleansing of the Temple.C. In the Wilderness, there was the Tabernacle; in Jerusalem, there was the Temple; in the New Testament, we find the local church.D. All three of these had a common purpose: a place where men met with God in worship and a place where God met with men in fellowship. 1 Kings 8:48-49 And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: (49) Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,2 Chronicles 7:14-16 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (15) Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. (16) For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.E. Here, we find God's love for the place of worship. What was to be known in all nations as the house of prayer had become common and a house of thieves.Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.1. The Anger of the Lord! This account is one few times that we see Jesus Christ angered. John 2:15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;a. He found a change in the people's attitude toward the temple.b. He found a change in God's intended purpose of the temple.2. The Den of Thieves! The House of the Lord had become Commercial! Mark 11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;a. Churches that have become commercial. John 2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. (Some raffle off things, have even have coffee shops in them, support their projects by selling donuts, having bake sales, etc. God's church business is to be funded by the tithes and offerings. Religion is big business and you can get rich if you find out what the people want and adhere to it.)b. There are churches that are all about the money. 1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (We are not to worry about the finances of the local church. The offerings are God's, not ours and we operated within the finances that come in. Since when has God been broke? Televangelists have done much harm to the world's perception of religion.)c. Often, preachers speak of families that will not trust God with the tithe and then the same preachers worry over the offerings. I often say, when we receive the Lord's tithes and offerings, “You give as unto the Lord and it will be just right.” That is why I do not normally take up special offerings.2. The House of the Lord had become Common! Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.a. A vessel was something for common use. Sanctuaries have become auditoriums. A “sanctuary” is something reserved or set aside. To carry a common vessel “through” was to make the sanctuary a thoroughfare or common use. The new trend is to have a multi-purpose place of worship. I have seen a church on Hwy. 25 North that was such. It could be used for worship or play as it was a glorified gymnasium with chairs set out for services. The sanctuary is not a place for play or food and drink. It is a place of worship.b. Churches in our day, for the most part, have become common through becoming casual. The church is a holy place where God's people come to worship Him. It is a special place. It is a sanctuary that is set aside.c. The modern-day churches uses three things to attract the worldly.1) Their Music that appeals to the flesh.2) Their Message that offends no one.3) Their Methods that are unbiblical.d. Here at Temple, we will respect God's house—both the pulpit and the pew. It may seem a little old fashioned, but our forefathers had it right and we will keep it right.3. The end result: The House of the Lord was no longer the House of Prayer! Psalms 66:18-20 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: (19) But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. (20) Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.Conclusion: Every generation will have to make a choice concerning what they want in a church. As each generation passes through the “valley of the shadow of death,” a new generation will choose either the Old Paths of the fathers or the New Paths of the world.Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
