Lester Roloff - The Key To Victory

Lester L. Roloff was born on June 28, 1914 in Dawson, Texas. He grew up there on a cotton farm. At the age of 12, he was saved, and at the age of 18, he surrendered to the Lord's call to preach. He graduated from Baylor University and attended Southwestern Seminary for nearly three years. During this time, he pastored two part-time churches. He then pastored four full-time churches before the Lord called him, in 1951, to be a full-time evangelist.

Joshua son of Nun had been commissioned by Moses to bring Israel into the Promised Land. He was a leader and a general. Having spied out the land and returned with the other 11 spies, he was fully aware of the impending battle and the ferocity of the enemy.There were giants in the land. Having miraculously crossed over the Jordan with all the people and 40,000 armed soldiers, Joshua sensed deeply his responsibility to protect and lead Israel to victory and the inheritance God had promised them.The post Whose Side Are You On? appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions.
On June 4, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a decision by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission (upheld by Colorado courts) that had found baker Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop guilty of unlawful discrimination for declining to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The vote was 7-2—that is, seven justices voted to overturn the Colorado decision, while only two voted to uphold it.The New York Times’ online story about the ruling carried the headline, “In Narrow Decision, Supreme Court Sides With Baker Who Turned Away Gay Couple.” The Washington Post editorialized, “The Supreme Court’s narrow ruling on a wedding cake is a step in the right direction.”Subsequently, I noticed some people on social media (especially conservative friends) grousing about the description of the 7-2 decision as “narrow,” as though the liberal media was trying to downplay Jack Phillips’ decisive victory. So I thought I would offer a short explanation.Masterpiece Cakeshop is being described as a “narrow” ruling not because of its margin, but because of its reasoning. Neither side in the case got everything that it wanted.Those supporting Colorado, and supporting Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins (the same-sex couple who had requested a cake from Phillips), wanted a broad ruling that 1) Phillips violated Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act by discriminating against the couple on the basis of “sexual orientation; and 2) that no claim of religious freedom or free speech can excuse that statutory violation by a business that qualifies as a “public accommodation.” In the end, only two justices (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with Sonia Sotomayor joining her in dissent) adopted that view and considered it decisive.Those supporting the baker Phillips, on the other hand, wanted a broad ruling that his rights to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion, because they are fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution, must take precedence over the statutory provisions of Colorado law. Yet the Court’s ruling in favor of the free exercise claim was a narrow one, and only two justices expressed support for the free speech claim as well (Clarence Thomas, with Neil Gorsuch joining his concurrence in the judgment).(I should note as well that some key elements of the case remained in dispute. Phillips’ attorneys questioned whether the Anti-Discrimination Act even applied, arguing that Phillips did not, in fact, “discriminate” on the basis of “sexual orientation” at all, because he was happy to serve self-identified gay customers with products other than a wedding cake. Colorado’s attorneys questioned whether the First Amendment even applied, arguing that baking a cake cannot be considered a form of “speech” at all.)Instead of clearly explaining that Jack Phillips’ has robust constitutional rights regarding the cakes he designs, the majority opinion found that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission simply didn’t behave well enough in this case, due to: (1) the hostility aimed specifically at his religious beliefs (evidenced in comments of the Commission), and (2) the different treatment the Commission gave a parallel case (one in which the Commission allowed bakeries to refuse to make cakes criticizing same-sex marriage). It was only because the Commission exhibited anti-religious bias in its proceedings against Jack Phillips that the Supreme Court threw out its ruling, on free exercise grounds. Justice Gorsuch also wrote a strong concurrence, joined by Justice Alito, elaborating on the strength of the free exercise claim here.Although they joined the majority opinion, Justices Kagan and Breyer additionally wrote a concurrence explaining that their lukewarm support for Phillips was only based on the fact that he was treated really badly by members of the Commission in this case. They argued that the disparate treatment between the two bakery cases could have been justified, were it not for the overt anti-religious hostility exhibited by the Commission.Justices Kennedy and Roberts—in writing and joining only the majority opinion, respectively—ruled in favor of Phillips, but not on the basis of a sweeping affirmation of his freedom of speech or of religion.A definitive Supreme Court precedent, resolving the underlying dispute between “non-discrimination” principles and freedom of speech and religion, will have to await another case and another decision. That is why many are calling Masterpiece a “narrow” decision.
Temple Baptist Church - 5-2-20182 Peter 2:9Introduction: A. Tonight, I want to look at an interesting verse. First, let us put it in its context.1. False teachers have always had an adverse influence upon God's children.a) Satan deceived Eve and Adam followed her lead in eating the forbidden fruit. God delivered Adam and Eve through the shedding of blood.b) From Adam to Noah's day, Satan continued his work until God destroyed the world by a flood but delivered Noah's family.B. In Genesis 19, God purposes to destroy the cities of the plain because of their wickedness. Abraham pleaded with the Lord to spare the cities for the “righteous” sake but ended his bargaining too quickly with the number 10. He thought that there were 10 righteous because of the number in Lot's family.(Lot, his wife, and two virgin daughters are mentioned in Genesis 19:8. This makes 4. In Genesis 19:12, there is the mention of “sons” plural so we know that there were at least two sons living in Sodom. That brings the total to 4+2 which is 6. In Genesis 19:14, it mentions “sons in law” that married his “daughters” so we know that there at least 4 more there. 4+2+4 = 10. Abraham was wrong because he though that they all would be righteous. They were not!)C. The angels were sent to Sodom because God could not destroy the righteous with the wicked.Genesis 19:16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.Genesis 19:22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.D. The angels had to forcibly remove Lot, his wife, and two daughters from Sodom.1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,E. Our text speaks of delivering the “godly” from temptations. God's children face temptations every day. We, that are saved, are in a constant war with our flesh but most us still can overcome the flesh and live godly lives. 1. Thank God for His longsuffering and grace.2. Thank God for His mercy and forgiveness.3. Thank the God for His great love that causes Him to be better to us than we deserve.F. But, there are some believers who are entangled in sin, never get victory, and eventually just give in to it. At that point, God must deliver them.1. God may take you home when you harden your neck against His wooing. Proverbs 29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.2. God may take you home when you rebel against legitimate church discipline. 1 Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.3. God may take you home when you partake of the Lord's Supper unworthily. 1 Corinthians 11:30-32 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (31) For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. (32) But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.4. God may take you home when you have committed a sin unto death. 1 John 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. (These are sins that the Bible places a death sentence upon.)G. Why God had to deliver Lot:1. Lot was Willful. “For that righteous man” He was just, righteous, and godly. He was saved and knew better.Genesis 13:12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.2. Lot was Warned. “dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing”Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. (This was no surprise to Lot! He knew in advance what awaited him in Sodom.)3. Lot was Worn. “vexed his righteous soul” Vexed means to “wear down” Genesis 19:7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. (Can't you hear Lot pleading with the sodomites?)4. Lot was Worsening. “from day to day with their unlawful deeds” Things were not going to get better or change. Genesis 19:16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.Conclusion: Lot left God no choice. 2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
Temple Baptist Church - 4-8-2018Romans 7:7-25Introduction:A. In the last couple of chapters, we have seen our relationship to both sin and the Law:1. We are dead to sin! Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? (2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?2. We are dead to the Law! Romans 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.B. Now that we are established in these two important biblical facts, let us look at the heart and life of the great Apostle Paul. This will help us in two ways:1. How to spiritually succeed biblically.2. How to handle spiritual failure biblically.C. We, just as the Apostle Paul, are a trichotomy in our image of God and a dichotomy in our relation to our life in this world.1. Trichotomy – three in one: body, world conscious—soul, self-conscious—spirit, God conscious.2. Dichotomy – two in one: an old nature that is sinful and a new creature that is holy.D. Thus, a conflict of interest! A situation in which a person is involved in multiple interests where serving one the interests could involve working against one of the other interest. Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.Galatians 5:16-25 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. (17) For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (18) But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (19) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, (20) Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, (21) Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (23) Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (24) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. (25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.James 4:5-7 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? (6) But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. (7) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.E. Though we have the Holy Spirit and a desire to serve Christ, we also live in a flesh that has an old nature that desires the things of the world. You hear from some religious people about the eradication of the flesh whereby a child of God eventually lives a sinless life. I have a problem with such people because 1) they have not the conviction of the Holy Spirit and 2) they have called God a liar!1 John 1:8, 10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us ... (10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.1. It is by the Law that we know what sin is. Verse 7. 1 Timothy 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.2. Paul was alive without the Law. Verses 8-9. He thought he was doing God's will by persecuting the church. 1 Corinthians 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.3. The Law is holy and right. Verses 10-13. The work of the Law is to bring about sinfulness and point us to Christ. Galatians 3:24-25 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.f. Positionally, we are dead to the Law but Practically, we are still sinners and come short of the Law. Thus, the Conflict of Interest.F. Let's break these verses down.1. Carnality – Verses 14-15. Though we are saved positionally, practically our flesh is not saved. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.2. Consent – Verse 16. When the child of God does wrong (he knows that what he is doing is evil), he agrees with the Law that the Law is holy and right.3. Conflict – Verses 17-22. There is a constant battle between the newness of the spiritual man and the wicked of our sinful flesh.James 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?4. Captivity – Verses 23-24. Your flesh tries to control your mind bringing you into spiritual captivity. 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;5. Confidence – Verses 24-25. One day, this old body will be changed and we will get a new one that is holy.1 Corinthians 15:50-54 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. (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.
