Numbers 35:21 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him. Moses was giving the laws of first and second-degree murder. An accidental murder or killing didn't deserve the death penalty. The difference was intention or what was in the heart. If there was hatred in the heart of the killer, then it was not an accident even if he made it appear to be one! What is in your heart when you say or do the things that hurt and wound your friend or brother? We might say we didn't mean to hurt, but the truth is that our heart attitude will betray us. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. I love how Moses gave good laws in what we might perceive to be primitive times. They had precise ways to determine if it was an accidental death or if it was murder. They weren't savages that had no idea of right and wrong. The truths that they knew they got from the Lord God who […]
Today's category: LawyersProfessional Fighting Two physicians boarded a flight out of Seattle. One sat in the window seat, the other sat in the middle seat. Just before takeoff, an attorney got on and took the aisle seat next to the two physicians. The attorney kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the physician in the window seat said, "I think I'll get up and get a coke." "No problem," said the attorney, "I'll get it for you." While he was gone, one of the physicians picked up the attorney's shoe and put a thumbtack in it. When he returned with the coke, the other physician said, "That looks good, I think I'll have one too." Again, the attorney obligingly went to fetch it and while he was gone, the other physician picked up the other shoe and put a tack in it. The attorney returned and they all sat back and enjoyed the flight. As the plane was landing, the attorney slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened. "How long must this go on?" he asked. "This fighting between our professions? This hatred? This animosity? This putting tacks in shoes and spitting in cokes?"View hundreds more jokes online.Email this joke to a friend
Temple Baptist Church - 12-17-2017Matthew 1:18-25; Genesis 3:15Introduction: A. Most of us, from our childhood, have known of the wonderful birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ—but it is a story that never grows old and holds for this preacher a wonder and beauty that never fades! B. The birth of Christ is the most documented event in the history of the world. It is even used to divide the calendar that most of the world recognizes.C. I want to look this morning at the purpose of His coming. In verse 21, the Bible says, “and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” 2 Timothy 3:15 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.2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (The word “made” means “to do or to perform something that would not have been done otherwise.” This morning, our bed was made up. If we had not done so, it would have never been done so.)1. Christ was “made sin” for us. Without Christ sacrifice, salvation would have never come about.2. We were “made” the righteousness of God in Him. We had to be “made” righteous which is something that only the applied blood of Christ could do.D. I want to go back to the First Mention Principle of Bible interpretation: Genesis, chapter 3.1. The First Mention of Sin. Genesis 3:6-7 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it waspleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (7) And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.2. The First Mention of a Seeking Saviour. Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.a) The First Mention of a Sacrifice for Sin. Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (There could not have been many “lambs” in the Garden of Eden at this time so I could speculate that Adam and Eve knew the lamb! How painful to watch of one whom you love to die for you.)b) The First Mention of the Penalty (Death) for Sin. “Make coats of skins.” The wages of sin was and still is death.c) The First Mention of Propitiation. “Clothed them” – The innocent lamb died for the guilty sinner.d) The First Mention of Imputation. “The LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them” – Sinners covered by the innocence of another.The First Mention of Modesty. “Coats … clothed them” – Dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne!3. The First Mention of the Prophecy Christ's First Advent. “Seed of the woman” The Purpose of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.a) Man Sinned.b) Christ Came.c) Christ Died.d. We that are born again live forever!1. What Is Sin? It has been said that there are 726 sins named in the Bible. I do not know personally because I have not taken the time to count them and would probably miss many of them in the process, so I will just take these theologians at their word. There are several rather large listings of sin such as: Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 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.a. Sin Defined:1) Strong's Exhaustive Concordance definition of “sin” is – to miss the mark! To violate God's law2) Webster's states that, “sin is any offence or fault. It is the breaking of a religious or moral law.3) The Greek dictionary defines sin as missing the mark; to miss or wander from the path of uprightness and honor. The Greek also states sin is a violation of the divine law in thought or in act.4) What is the Bible definition?1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. (A transgression means to over step, to cross over the line God has drawn, or to jump the fence. The Word of God (Law) is the fence referred to. Therefore, transgression is an act of rebellion against the known will of God.)1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. (Unrighteousness is wickedness, iniquity, inward crookedness, perversity, and stubbornly contrary to God's Word and Will.)Romans 14:23b For whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (If our actions are not those motivated by faith then it is sin. Open sin is probably not hindering revival as much as a lack of faith.)James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (If a person fails to practice what is good, his action or his lack of action is sin. This is generally called a sin of omission.)b. Generally, we classify sin in two ways :1) Sins of Commission – things that we do that are contrary to God's Word. God says not to do something and we do it anyway. (The over stepping of God's Law – a trespass.)2) Sins of Omission – things that we do not do that are contrary to God's Will. (God says to do something and we choose not to obey because of stubbornness.)The Biblical Purpose for Christmas: Jesus Came To Die For Sin!2. Who Has Sinned?a. The First Man Sinned - Romans 5:12a Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:b. All Have Sinned – Romans 5:12b and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Both Jews And Gentiles)Romans 3:9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.Ecclesiastes 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.c. The Sinless Became Sin! 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.The Biblical Purpose for Christmas: Jesus Came To Save Sinners!3. What Is The Consequence Of Sin? a. A Wasted Life - Romans 6:23a For the wages of sin is death;b. A Wasted Eternity - Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.The Biblical Purpose for Christmas: Jesus Came To Take Away The Penalty Of Sin!4. The Purpose Of The Incarnation Of Christ?a. Jesus Came To Die For Our Sin! JESUS – “Jehovah is salvation”John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.b. Jesus Came To Seek And To Save That Which Is Lost! “all have sinned”Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.c. Jesus Came To Give Eternal Life To All Who Believe! “whosoever believeth in Him”Romans 6:23b but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.Conclusion: The Biblical Purpose for Christmas: because of His great love for mankind, He came to die on Calvary for our sin!
Temple Baptist Church - 10-29-20171 Chronicles 16:23-17:23Introduction:A. Last week, I made the statement that Demas left God in his heart long before he physically left Paul. This morning, we see a perfect example of this. A man who suffered wrong became bitter to his own demise. A man by the name of Ahithophel. A man who harbored hurt in his heart.B. Who was this man, Ahithophel? I believe that he is often thought of as a “wicked man” or, in our terminology, a “lost man.” That is not the Bible's commentary on his life. Ahithophel was a godly man who started well but ended his life in bitterness. C. This message will be one with a long introduction and a short summation. 1. Ahithophel was a man of great wisdom. 1 Chronicles 27:33a And Ahithophel was the king's counsellor:Proverbs 20:18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.2. Ahithophel was a man who could be trusted. 2 Samuel 16:23 And the counsel of Ahithophel, which he counselled in those days, was as if a man had enquired at the oracle of God: so was all the counsel of Ahithophel both with David and with Absalom.3. Ahithophel was a very dear friend of King David. Psalms 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.a) “mine own” Ahithophel was someone very personal to David.b) “familiar friend” Ahithophel was intimate with David. Ahithophel was allowed into David's personal life like a family member.Psalms 55:12-14 For it was not an enemy (Ahithophel was David's friend) that reproached me; then I could have borne it:neither was it he that hated me (Ahithophel loved David) that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: (13) But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. (14) We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company (Ahithophel loved God).D. What caused Ahithophel to turn bitter against his “own familiar friend” the king. What caused such hatred and intended harm? What caused Ahithophel to destroy his own life?1. Ahithophel was Bathsheba's grandfather! Ahithophel, according to the scriptural account (2 Samuel, chapter 11), was a victim in the matter of King David's sin with Bathsheba and against Uriah the Hittite. 2 Samuel 11:3 And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?2 Samuel 23:34 Eliphelet the son of Ahasbai, the son of the Maachathite, Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite,2. King David could have had almost any single woman in the kingdom as a wife, but he stole the wife of one of his mighty men, Uriah the Hittite: a man very close to the king.3. King David, instead of confessing his sin, sought to cover it by using Uriah's flesh against Uriah. Uriah's desire to be with his beautiful wife. Even causing Uriah to get drunk could not undermine the integrity of the man.4. King David sent a letter to Joab by the hand of Uriah that placed Uriah in the hottest place of battle and retiring from him so that he would die.5. Somehow, Ahithophel became privy to the wicked acts committed by King David and the hurt, anger, and bitterness turned into wrath. From that day, he hated the king. He continued to be David's counselor without David knowing that Ahithophel was in the know.6. When Absalom came into power and King David had to flee for his life, Ahithophel remained in the palace as Absalom's counselor. When the right time came, he tried to kill the king.7. When his counsel was rejected, he went home—put his house in order—and hanged himself.E. The King sinned against God, Bathsheba, Uriah the Hittite, Joab, Ahithophel, and Israel. 1. King David got it right with God but Ahithophel never got over it. He became hurt, angry, and bitter against the man of God. 2. Ahithophel's bitterness destroyed his own life, not David's.F. There are only two things that should divide us from the local church:1. Major doctrinal error. Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.2. Open, unrebuked sin. 1 Corinthians 5:1-2 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. (2) And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.G. Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;1. The Causes of Bitterness can be varied so I would not try to enumerate them. Bitterness is a self-inflicted wound!a. People can be carnal and care nothing for the feelings of others. When people legitimately hurt you, you need to realize that you can hurt yourself by not handling it right. They can say something wrong and forget about it while you stew over it for years.b. People can falsely perceive that they are being hurt by others. There is always the possibility of you “reading them wrong.” Not everyone can speak a word “fitly spoken.” They intend no harm but say something is a wrong way. Always give them the benefit of the doubt realizing that people have bad days or tongue problems at times.c. People can overact to the actions or words of others. One piece of advice given to me by my pastor many years ago was to “minimize things.” Never making a “mountain out of a molehill.”2. The Consequences of Bitterness can have both personal and collateral damage.a. Springing up! Bitterness springs up from the root of hurt and anger. Kill the root before it becomes a tree!b. Trouble you! Personal damage comes when it troubles you. We have enough trouble in this world without causing our own. It troubles you because you do not deal with it. It troubles you because you meditate upon it.c. Many be defiled thereby. Collateral damage is when your bitterness affects those around you. This has attributed to D.L. Moody – “The one sin that is keeping revival from coming to the church, more people from being, and more of the blessings of God from coming upon His people, is the sin of an unforgiving spirit.” 3. The Cure of Bitterness is nothing profound or unreasonable. I want to look at two problem sources. Bitterness generally boils down to carnality and unforgiveness.a. Spirituality vs. Carnality - Psalms 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.b. Forgiveness vs. Unforgiveness - Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: (32) And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.4. Bitterness will destroy your life along with the lives of those closest to you. To be bitter or not to be bitter is up to you! Throughout the trials of this life, we make choices to become better or bitter.
Temple Baptist Church - 10-25-20171 Peter 5:8-9Introduction: A. Last time I preached on Wednesday night, I preached on Satan and his hatred for God and all that God created. We found that:1. Satan is our enemy. “adversary”2. Satan is our personal enemy. “your”3. Satan is a destructive enemy. “he may devour”4. Satan is a persistent enemy. “walketh about seeking”1. Understand who the enemy is: the devil. “whom” a. Our enemy is no other professing Christians. Mark 9:38-40 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. (39) But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. (40) For he that is not against us is on our part. (I understand doctrinal separation and am a separatist but fighting other denominations or people who profess to know Christ is detrimental to the cause of Christ.)b. Our enemy is certainly not our brother in Christ. Galatians 5:13-15 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. (14) For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (15) But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.2. Be ready to resist the devil. “resist” Resist-to oppose or to withstand.a. Resisting takes spiritual preparation. Ephesians 6:10-13 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. (11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (13) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.b. Resisting takes obedience to God. James 4:7-8 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (8) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.c. Resisting takes a conscious effort on our part. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.d. Resisting is a continual war with the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) (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;3. Be ever watchful and ready to resist the devil. “steadfastly”a. Ever watching in sobriety. 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:b. Do not allow sinfulness to root in your life. Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.4. Resist the devil in the faith. “in the faith”a. Resist the devil in the Spirit. 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.b. Resist the devil in the Scriptures. Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5. Realize that you are not alone in the fight. “knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
