Temple Baptist Church - 3-4-2020Hebrews 11:13-19; Genesis 22:1-19Introduction:A.¬ Hebrews 11:13 - ‚ÄúThese all died in faith!‚ÄĚ1.¬ An Evidential Faith.¬ ¬ Hebrews 11:1-3¬ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ¬ (2)¬ For by it the elders obtained a good report. ¬ (3)¬ Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.2.¬ An Enduring Faith.¬ ¬ Hebrews 11:13a¬ These all died in faith3.¬ An Embracing Faith.¬ Hebrews 11:13b¬ ¬ Not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.B.¬ In these verses, we find the amazing faith of Abraham mentioned.¬ This was no small act of faith that Abraham exercised in Genesis when God gave to him the promise of the ‚ÄúSeed.‚ÄĚ¬ When we get to Genesis 22, we find the depth of his faith in the testing of the sacrifice of Isaac.Hebrews 11:17-19¬ ¬ By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten¬ son,¬ ¬ 18¬ Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:¬ ¬ 19¬ ¬ Accounting that God¬ was¬ able to raise¬ him¬ up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.Galatians 3:8¬ And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.C.¬ God promised Abraham a son named Isaac¬ through which the godly line would continue until the ‚ÄúSeed‚ÄĚ should come which was Christ.¬ The Old Testament saint knew that the ‚ÄúLamb of God‚ÄĚ would one day come to take away (not simply atone) for the sins of the world.¬ Isaac had no children; therefore, he must continue to live in order to bring about the accomplishment of the ‚Äúseed of the woman.‚ÄĚD.¬ This meant that if Abraham sacrificed his son,¬ then God would have to bring him back to life again.¬ What faith!Turn to Genesis 22 with me.1.¬ Pre-determination Plan ‚Äď vs. 2 ‚Äúoffer him‚ÄĚ -¬ Acts 2:23¬ Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:1 Peter 1:20¬ Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,2.¬ Pre-determined Person ‚Äď vs. 2 ‚Äúthine only son‚ÄĚ -¬ John 1:29¬ The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.Matthew 17:5¬ While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.3.¬ ¬ Pre-determined Place -¬ Genesis 22:2-4¬ And he said, Take now thy son, thine only¬ son¬ Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.¬ ¬ 3¬ And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.¬ ¬ 4¬ Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.Luke 23:33¬ And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.4.¬ Pre-determined Price ‚Äď vs. 2 ‚Äúburnt offering‚ÄĚ -¬ Leviticus 17:11¬ For the life of the flesh¬ is¬ in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it¬ is¬ the blood¬ that¬ maketh an atonement for the soul.Hebrews 9:22¬ And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.5.¬ Pre-determined Process ‚Äď vs. 3 ‚Äúclave the wood‚ÄĚ -¬ Galatians 3:13¬ Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed¬ is¬ every one that hangeth on a tree:Philippians 2:8¬ And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.6.¬ Pre-determined Pact ‚Äď vs. 6 ‚Äúboth of them together‚ÄĚ -¬ John 8:29¬ And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.Isaiah 53:10-11¬ Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put¬ him¬ to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see¬ his¬ seed, he shall prolong¬ his¬ days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.¬ ¬ 11¬ He shall see of the travail of his soul,¬ and¬ shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.7.¬ Pre-determined Path ‚Äď vs. 6 ‚Äúthe wood of the burnt offering, and laid¬ it¬ upon Isaac his son‚ÄĚ -¬ John 19:17¬ And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called¬ the place¬ of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:Colossians 2:14¬ Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;8.¬ Pre-determined Provision ‚Äď vs. 8 ‚ÄúGod will provide himself‚ÄĚ-¬ 1 Timothy 3:16¬ And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.Matthew 1:23¬ Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.9.¬ Pre-determined Propitiation ‚Äď vs. 13 ‚ÄúAbraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son‚ÄĚ -¬ 1 John 2:2¬ And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for¬ the sins of¬ the whole world.Hebrews 9:26¬ For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.10.¬ Pre-determined Promise ‚Äď vs. 19 ‚ÄúSo Abraham returned unto his young men‚ÄĚ¬ -¬ ¬ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18¬ ¬ For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:¬ ¬ 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.¬ ¬ 18¬ Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Temple Baptist Church - 4-12-2020John 19:38-20:18Introduction:A.¬ The question is often asked,¬ ‚ÄúWhat makes you sure that your religion is right and all others wrong?‚ÄĚ¬ The answer is multifaceted.¬ In Christianity:1.¬ ¬ Only in Christianity,¬ Jesus Christ‚ÄĒAlmighty God Himself‚ÄĒdied for man instead of man dying for God!¬ The sheep's Shepherd dying for His sheep instead of the sheep dying for their Shepherd.¬ No Jihads!2.¬ Only in Christianity is salvation a ‚Äúdone‚ÄĚ deal instead of a ‚Äúdo‚ÄĚ deal!¬ ¬ The believer can add nothing to Calvary in order to be saved: no baptism, no good works, and no self-righteousness.¬ All the believer must do is repent and believe!¬ Jesus Christ paid it all and gives it freely and graciously to all who believe.3.¬ Only in Christianity has God died for mankind and took His life up again through the resurrection from the dead.¬ The religious leaders of all other religions died and stayed dead!¬ Their bones lie where the disciples laid them until our God raises them to stand before Him in judgment at the Great White Throne.4.¬ ¬ Only in Christianity is the believer's motivation for service based upon love instead of fear!¬ We do fear God but it is the love of Christ that constrains us while all others serve our of fear.5.¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ Only in Christianity does God live in man and man's body becomes the temple of God.¬ I have the Holy Ghost living in me establishing communion and leadership.6.¬ Only in Christianity is the believer placed IN God.¬ We are not just His subjects, but we are His sons!¬ Protected, provided for, and preserved for ever with Christ in God.7.¬ Only in Christianity is the believer secure for all eternity regardless of fault and failure.¬ ¬ We have eternal life and eternal means eternal!¬ They shall never perish means they shall never perish!8.¬ Only in Christianity is God's heaven a holy place!¬ All other religions teach that the reward of their followers is a sensual one: they can have all the things there that God calls sin in our Bible.¬ These ‚Äúformer‚ÄĚ things will all pass away, and we will live in a perfectly holy environment for ever with a perfectly holy God!B.¬ Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,¬ died on the cross of Calvary for the sins of the whole world.¬ Your sins, my sins, the drunkard's sins, the harlot's sins, the sodomite's sins, the drug addict's sins, and every race's sins!¬ Christ was placed in a garden tomb and' on the third day, rose victorious over death, hell, and the grave!¬ I believe that with all my heart!¬ I thank God for the resurrection of His Son from the dead.C.¬ Without the Resurrection,¬ we would have no hope.¬ Without the Resurrection, our service for Christ would be in vain.¬ Without the Resurrection, we would remain in our sins.¬ Without the Resurrection, our loved ones who have died would have perished.¬ Without the Resurrection, we would die and perish forever.D.¬ I thank God that,¬ having not seen, I believe!¬ I want to look at some of the things that the resurrection of Jesus Christ from dead does.1.¬ The Resurrection separates Christianity from all other religions.¬ ¬ 1 Corinthians 15:3-4¬ For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;¬ ¬ (4)¬ And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:¬ ¬ (As ‚ÄúIt is finished‚ÄĚ makes Christianity a ‚Äúdone‚ÄĚ religion instead of a ‚Äúdo‚ÄĚ religion, the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ makes Christianity like none other.¬ No other man either rose from the dead or even claimed to do so.)2.¬ The Resurrection declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.¬ ¬ Romans 1:4¬ And declared¬ to be¬ the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:¬ (Mohammed, Confucius, and all other religious leaders are dead and buried.¬ Dig where they were buried and you will find the bones still there.¬ Go to the Garden Tomb and you will find it as the disciples found it: empty!¬ Death has no power over our Lord as He dismissed his spirit and took it up again.¬ Jesus Christ is God and Lord of all.)3.¬ The resurrection demands a decision concerning salvation.¬ ¬ John 5:28-29¬ Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,¬ (29)¬ And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.¬ ¬ Acts 28:24¬ And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.¬ ¬ (Salvation is a choice that every person must make.¬ Not to do so brings about an eternal damnation.¬ As there is a resurrection unto eternal life, there is also a resurrection unto eternal damnation.)4.¬ The Resurrection offers salvation to all who believe.¬ ¬ Romans 10:9¬ That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.¬ ¬ (A heart belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is essential to salvation.¬ That is what bothers me concerning children getting saved at a very early age.¬ Most children at 4 and 5 years of age have no understanding of sin, death, burial, and resurrection.¬ They can learn the words but the bible declares that those who come to Christ must believe that died for their sins, was buried, and that He arose from the grave.¬ I do not know when a child can be saved but I do know that he or she must be old enough to understand just who Jesus is, what He did for them, and just how sinful that they are before they can be saved.¬ Before then, they are under innocence.)5.¬ The Resurrection imparts to the believer a new nature.¬ ¬ 2¬ Corinthians 5:17¬ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.¬ ¬ Colossians 3:1¬ If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.¬ (This resurrection unto salvation imparts a new nature into the believer that changes his or her thinking forever.¬ I cannot unbelieve that which I have believed and, the older I get, the more I am persuaded.)6.¬ The Resurrection gives the believer life, both in this world and the one to come.¬ ¬ John 14:19-20¬ Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.¬ (20)¬ At that day ye shall know that I¬ am¬ in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.¬ ¬ (I am alive and soon will be dead but, then, I will be live forever more: more alive that I have ever been.)7.¬ The Resurrection brings about spiritual fellowship. Philippians 3:10¬ That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;¬ ¬ (Because of the resurrection, I have fellowship with the Lord and also with you.¬ You know that you have passed from death to life because you Love and obey the Lord and love one another.)8.¬ The Resurrection brings comfort in loss.¬ ¬ 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.¬ For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.¬ ¬ (As we follow the casket of a loved one to the grave, we weep for sorrow but not as those who have no hope.¬ In Genesis 50:26, they placed Joseph in a coffin which means a box or chest.¬ The word coffin comes from a root word that means to pluck or gather.¬ I know that I shall see my saved loved ones again and their sorrow is now turned into joy.)9.¬ The Resurrection gives boldness in the face of death.¬ Psalms 23:4¬ Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou¬ art¬ with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.¬ ¬ (For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.¬ To die is far better and to remain is needful.¬ When I die, He will be there to walk with me through the valley of the shadow of death and I will fear no evil.¬ He has already been there and knows the way.)10.¬ The Resurrection guarantees an eternal life with Christ.¬ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17¬ For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, ¬ and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:¬ 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.¬ ¬ (No more death, sorrow, crying, sickness, curse, or sin.¬ Forever with Him!)Conclusion:¬ The Resurrection gives confidence in our preaching.¬ I preach Christ!¬ The only way to heaven and the only One to live for here.¬ I am glad that He died for the sins of the world, was buried, rose again, and is coming back just like He said!
Temple Baptist Church - 4-8-2020John 19:28-37Introduction:A.¬ Almost 2,000 years,¬ Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, died on an old rugged cross for the sins of the world.¬ Tonight, we celebrate the death of Christ!B.¬ Resurrection Sunday¬ does not always occur on the same day of our month of April but, 2,000 years ago, the Passover was always on the same day of the month.¬ C.¬ In our day, we hear the phrase ‚ÄúGood Friday.‚ÄĚ¬ ¬ Biblically uninformed people celebrate the death of Christ on that day.¬ This is in direct opposition to the Scriptures.D.¬ Nisan, or our April,¬ was the first month of the Jewish year and Passover was always on the 14th¬ day of the month.¬ There were many ‚Äúhigh days‚ÄĚ in the Jewish year that marked ‚Äúholy convocations,‚ÄĚ or holy days.¬ These days were also called Sabbaths.E.¬ Therefore, there were multiple weeks in Israel¬ that had 2 ‚ÄúSabbaths‚ÄĚ in them.¬ The normal Sabbath which was the seventh day of the week, or our Saturday.¬ But there would be another day of the week, which was a Jewish holy day or Sabbath, which the Bible refers to as ‚ÄúAN HIGH DAY.‚ÄĚF.¬ When Christ Jesus died,¬ the Bible declares that it was the ‚Äúpreparation‚ÄĚ for a High Day or ceremonial Jewish Sabbath.John 19:31¬ The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.John 19:41-42¬ Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. ¬ (42)¬ There laid they Jesus therefore¬ because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.G.¬ The Bible declares that Christ Jesus arose from the grave very early on the first day of the week, which is our Sunday.John 20:1¬ The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.H.¬ Biblical Timeline:1.¬ Jesus Christ died at 6:00 PM on Wednesday,¬ which was the preparation day for the High Day.¬ No work could be done!2.¬ Thursday was the day of the Passover,¬ or High Day.¬ No work could be done!3.¬ Friday was the preparation day¬ for the normal Sabbath or seventh day of the week.¬ No work could be done!4.¬ Saturday was the normal Sabbath.¬ ¬ No work could be done!I.¬ The Jewish day began at 6:00 PM,¬ not our 12:00 PM.¬ Jesus Christ arose from the grave sometime between 6:00 PM Saturday evening and the time Mary Magdalene came to the tomb in the dark on the first day of the week.J.¬ The Bible is clear that Christ Jesus¬ remained ‚Äúthree days and three nights‚ÄĚ or 72 hours in the grave before the Resurrection.¬ Matthew 12:40¬ For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.K.¬ No matter how you calculate it,¬ you cannot get 72 hours into the time span from Friday evening at 6:00 Pm to early AM on the first day of the week, or Sunday!L.¬ ‚ÄúIt is finished‚ÄĚ says it all:1.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Word Of God Verified ‚Äď¬ Genesis 3:15¬ And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed;¬ it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.John 19:28¬ After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.¬ ¬ (There were hundreds of prophecies written concerning Jesus Christ and He fulfilled every prophecy, every promise, every ‚Äújot and tittle‚ÄĚ perfectly and completely!¬ God's Word can be depended upon not only in the performance of this life but also the expectation of the life to come.¬ Jesus Christ left nothing undone!)2.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Work Of Propitiation Finished¬ ‚Äď John 4:34¬ Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and¬ to finish his work.¬ John 1:29¬ The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.¬ ¬ (At Calvary, we find the finishing of 4,000 years of sacrifices!¬ Millions and millions of lambs had died while awaiting the death of THE Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world.¬ Mankind had long awaited Messiah's coming and we look back to His coming in wonder and amazement.¬ ¬ When Jesus said, ‚ÄúIt is finished,‚ÄĚ He was saying that the substitutionary work on the cross for us had been accomplished.)Peter said, in I Peter 3:18,¬ ‚ÄúFor Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.‚ÄĚ¬ ¬ (Jesus Christ became the ‚Äúscapegoat‚ÄĚ for you and me.¬ Thank You, Lord Jesus, for taking my place and dying for my sins!)3.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Way Of Salvation Established ‚Äď¬ John 14:6¬ Jesus saith unto him,¬ I am the way, the truth, and the life:¬ no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.Proverbs 16:25¬ There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.1 Corinthians 1:17-18¬ For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. ¬ (18)¬ For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.¬ ¬ (Man can teach and preach anything that he chooses but it does not change the fact that salvation is through Jesus Christ and Him alone!¬ Not a church, not a denomination, not a movement, not a baptism, not a sacrament, not a dogma, and not an individual theology‚ÄĒbut the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.¬ Man can go his own way but he will not go to heaven until he comes God's way!)4.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Wages Paid In Full ‚Äď¬ Romans 6:23¬ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Ezekiel 18:20a¬ The soul that sinneth, it shall die.¬ (Jesus Christ became the ‚ÄúSinner's Substitute.‚ÄĚ¬ Our sin separated us from a holy God and Jesus Christ, our Propitiation, reconciled us back to Him through the finished work of Calvary.)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.Hebrews 9:26¬ For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared¬ to put away sin¬ by the sacrifice of himself.¬ ¬ (The cross upon which Jesus died was an ‚Äúaltar‚ÄĚ and He was the ‚Äúsacrifice.‚ÄĚ)5.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Lost World Condemned ‚Äď¬ John 3:16-18¬ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.¬ (17)¬ For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.¬ (18)¬ ¬ He that believeth on him is not condemned:¬ but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.1 John 5:10¬ He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar;¬ because he believeth not¬ the record that God gave of his Son.John 3:19¬ And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.¬ ¬ (As Christ suffered for us as no man ever suffered, so the sinner who rejects Christ will one day suffer for all of eternity!)6.¬ ¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find¬ The Works Of The Devil Destroyed ‚Äď 1 John 3:8¬ He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.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.¬ ¬ (God will destroy Satan's position, his purpose, his power, his people, and ultimately his person.¬ Because of Calvary, one day there will be no more Satan!)7.¬ In ‚ÄúIt Is Finished,‚ÄĚ We Find The Wealth Of Eternity Secured ‚Äď¬ Revelation 5:9¬ 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;¬ ¬ (Because of the finished work of Christ on Calvary, one day we that are saved will be ‚Äúfinally home!)
I believe God is doing something in this moment that we can't see in the present, but we will see in due time.
