Artwork at Cambodia's Angkor Wat temple appears to depict a dinosaur. Though the engraving is “stegosaur-like,” this interpretation has been criticized.
Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, That the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; And he will teach us of his ways, And we will walk in his paths: For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. God still has plans for Israel. Jerusalem will once again be prominent. People will go to Jerusalem from all over the world to learn about the Lord God. People will be hungry to learn. They will go to Jerusalem. God's Word will flow out of Jerusalem to the entire world. This is important for us for several reasons. God still has plans for the future. He has plans for Jerusalem. God has not lost. Things may seem bleak now but before it is over people will be hearing the Word and sharing the Word. The temple will […]
Temple Baptist Church - 9-20-20171 Peter 5:5-7Introduction: A. The interpretation of these verses is to the young pastor or preacher. His is to submit to the elder and, also, to be humble enough to submit to all others. 1. He cannot expect others to submit unto him if he is not submissive. 2. He cannot reprove until he can be reproved. 3. He will never be honored until he learns to honor. 4. He will never be exalted until he learns to be abased. 5. He will never lead until he learns to follow. 6. One of the qualifications of a bishop is that he I not to be a novice.B. The application of these verses is to all of God's flock.C. Under The Mighty Hand Of God. Why?1. It is omnipotence that cannot be stayed.2. It is madness to oppose His will.3. It is both safe and profitable.a) Hid as in the hollow of his hand.2) Safe in his pavilion.3) Comfortable under the shadow of his wings.D. The Definition Of Humility1. Humility In Relationship To Others – vs 5a. Realizing That Others Are Just As Important As We Are - 1 Corinthians 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:b. Realizing Just Hope Important Our Love One For Another Is - Ephesians 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.1 Peter 3:8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:c. Realizing That What We Want Really Does Not Matter In Light Of Eternity - 2 Corinthians 4:17-5:1 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.Peter 5:5b Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humilityEphesians 5:18-21 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.2. Humility In Relationship To God – vs 6a. Realizing That Without Him We Would Be Eternally Lost - 1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.b. Realizing That Without Him We Would Be Nothing - 1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.c.

Humility In Relationship To Circumstances – vs 7a. Realizing That God Is In Control Of Our Future, Not We Ourselves - Job 23:13-14 But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.

Realizing That This Life Is Short At Best And Eternity Is Really All That Matters - 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Temple Baptist Church - 9-17-2017John 21:20-24Introduction:A. We have looked at 10 different men who walked with God in their lives. 1. The series has been a blessing to me as I studied these men. Each one had something that made him special in his personal walk with the LORD. There are more men in the Bible that I could have chosen but, alas, all good things normally come to an end. a) Enoch walked with God in Consistency.b) Noah walked with God in Spiritual Adversity.c) Moses walked with God in Impossibility.d) Joseph walked with God in Integrity.e) Job walked with God in Confusion.f) David walked with God in Worship.g) John the Baptist walked with God in Expectancy.h) Peter walked with God in Love.i) Paul walked with God in the Spirit.2. I want to look at one more man, John the Beloved, before I move on to another subject. I chose John the Beloved because every walk with God needs to have a destination in mind.3. Our destination is what lies beyond this life: an eternity of blessedness with Christ. Aging comes so quickly to all of us. Yesterday, we were carefree children who were raised in a better time. We live, we love, and we die.4. Life is short, death is sure, sin the cause, and Christ the Cure. Paul said it all when writing the Epistle to the Philippians: “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (21) For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (22) But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. (23) For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:” (Philippians 1:20-23) B. The apostles misunderstood what our Lord said to Peter in our text for this morning.John 21:22-23 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. (23) Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?1. It was Prophetic of John receiving the Revelation on the Isle of Patmos.2. It was also Prophetic of a generation that would not see death but would walk with God.C. John the Beloved was special! In the Book of John, his name is never mentioned but he is call “that disciple whom Jesus loved.” John was in the spirit on the Lord's Day when the Lord appeared to him in His glorified body and gave him the Revelation of Jesus Christ and things to come.1. John the Beloved is a beautiful type of the Church.2. Nothing was said negative about John. Though he was not a perfect man, he was called “that disciple whom Jesus loved.” When God sees His child, He sees us as made worthy by the blood and not as we are.3. The Lord loved John with an overlooking, everlasting love. Our Lord Jesus loves the Church and gave Himself for it. He sees us seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus without spot nor wrinkle nor any such thing.4. The Lord allowed John to see Him in the Second Coming in all His glory. We will one day see Him again.D. I want to take a short look at what John experienced that we who love the Lod will one-day experience.E. John the Beloved walked with God in Rapture. We will one day do the same, through the veil of death or in the Rapture of the church. Rapture: a feeling of intense pleasure or joy.1. John's rapture as he saw his beloved Lord. Revelation 1:10, 12-13 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet … (12) And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; (13) And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. (I can only imagine the thrill John felt when he saw Jesus again in all of His glory!)One day just today and it could be today, our rapture as we see our beloved Lord as He is. 1 Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: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. John's rapture as he was caught up to heaven, his ultimate home. Revelation 4:1-2 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. (2) And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. (From exile on the Isle of Patmos, a barren rock of an island, to the glory of God's heaven is beyond imagination.)Our rapture when, in a twinkling of an eye, we are caught up to heaven, FINALLY HOME! 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. (Through the rapture of through death, we will one-day step on shore and find it heaven, touch a hand and find it God's, breath new air and finding it celestial, waking up in glory, finally home!)3. John's rapture of seeing the saints of God along with his loved ones again. Revelation 5:8-9 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. (9) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (John was the last of the apostles to die and was probably in his late 90's when it was his time to go. He had more on the other side than he did remaining in this life.)Our rapture when we see those whom we loved in both our physical families and our church family again. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. (14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. (O that will be glory for me!)4. John's rapture of seeing a new heaven and a new earth with no curse or sin. 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. (The seven “No Mores!”)Our rapture of experiencing the change from this sinful world and aging, corrupt body to eternity's perfection. 1 Corinthians 15:50-53 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. (51) 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. (What a day that will be! I loved to hear Gordon sing that song.)5. John's rapture of experiencing eternity while still in the flesh here. Revelation 10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: (John knew that he was quickly approaching eternity and was thrilled to both see and experience it in advance.)Our rapture when we are forever with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.Conclusion: You know that this could have been a long message, don't you? As John the Beloved walked with God in Rapture, we too will one day do the same!
Psalm 135:15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. 16 They have mouths, but they speak not; Eyes have they, but they see not; 17 They have ears, but they hear not; Neither is there any breath in their mouths. 18 They that make them are like unto them: So is every one that trusteth in them. How horribly sad to watch men pray to pieces of metal, wood, rock, and other materials that they made or bought from someone who made them. They make intricate shapes and call them gods. They set up temples to their artwork and call it worship. They come and turn prayer wheels. They ring bells. They chant and pray. They do not know God. They only know the god they made or bought. They do not know a god that can move them and take care of them rather a god that is their responsibility. They need to know the God of heaven. They have gods but their gods have mouths that can't speak while we serve a God that speaks and actually gave us HIs written Word. They serve gods that have eyes that can't see […]
