Temple Baptist Church - 4-22-2018Matthew 16:13-23Introduction:¬ A.¬ ¬ What is the Local Church?¬ 1.¬ The local church is the body of Christ corporately gathered.¬ It is¬ a called-out assembly of saints.¬ It is neither a building nor is it a denomination.¬ I am a Baptist without apology, but I am a Biblicists first!¬ 2.¬ The Bible is the final authority for faith and practice.¬ There are many so-called Baptist churches that have radically changed and should remove the name Baptist from their names.¬ I am an independent Baptist as the Bible teaches.¬ B.¬ The local church¬ is to be autonomous (independent and self governing) in nature and indigenous (home grown) in nature.¬ Not only self-governed but also self-sufficient.C.¬ ¬ The Local Church building¬ is one that is¬ consecrated to the worship of God.¬ It is where God's people assemble, united under one form of ecclesiastical government, in one creed.¬ It is God's instrument on Earth that carries out the work of the Great Commission.D.¬ The Local Church needs to be respected.¬ There are those who say that the local church is just a building¬ made of earthly materials, but we need to be often reminded that it is the House of the Lord and should be respected it as such.¬ When I go to your homes, I respect them because it is your home!¬ When I come to Temple Baptist Church, I respect it and obey the rules of the Bible because it is God's House.E.¬ The meaning of ‚Äúchurch‚Ä̬ in our text is the Body of Christ, also called the Family of God and the Bride of Christ.¬ The foundation of Christ's church is the statement ‚ÄúThou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.‚Ä̬ F.¬ We build the local church, but salvation is the work of God and He builds His Church.¬ With this thought in mind, let us look at the Church that Christ owns.1.¬ The Church is built upon Christ.¬ ‚ÄúUpon this rock‚ÄĚa.¬ Jesus Christ is the Rock upon which the Church Stands.¬ Matthew 16:18¬ And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.¬ ¬ (We are but pebbles, but Christ is The Petros, the mighty Rock!)Acts 4:10-12¬ Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. ¬ (11)¬ ¬ This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. ¬ (12)¬ Neither is there salvation in any other:¬ for there is none other name¬ under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.b.¬ Jesus Christ is the Foundation of the Church.¬ ¬ The Church is built upon Christ: the Deity, the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.¬ ¬ The Gospel of Christ!¬ 1 Corinthians 3:11¬ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.¬ c.¬ Jesus Christ is the Chief Corner Stone of the Church.¬ ¬ He bears the weight of the Church.¬ 1 Peter 2:6-8¬ Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture,¬ Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.¬ Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made¬ the head of the corner,¬ And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.¬ 2.¬ The Church is built by Christ.¬ ¬ "I will build"¬ It is Christ who saves us.a.¬ It is Christ Jesus who works in the hearts of men.¬ Ephesians 2:8-10¬ For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:¬ Not of works, lest any man should boast.¬ ¬ For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.¬ b.¬ It is Christ Jesus who saves sinners.¬ 1 Corinthians 3:5-9¬ Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?¬ I have planted, Apollos watered;¬ but God gave the increase.¬ ¬ So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.¬ Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.¬ For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.¬ c.¬ It is Christ Jesus who adds to the Church.¬ Acts 2:6-7¬ And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,¬ Praising God, and having favour with all the people.¬ And the Lord added to the church¬ daily such as should be saved.¬ Psalms 127:1¬ ¬ Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:¬ 3. The Church belongs to Christ.¬ ¬ "I will build my church"a.¬ Christ Jesus is the Head of the Church.¬ Ephesians 1:22¬ And hath¬ put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,¬ b.¬ Christ Jesus is the Saviour of the Church.Ephesians 5:23¬ For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.¬ c.¬ Christ Jesus is the Sustainer of the Church.Colossians 1:17-18¬ And he is before all things,¬ and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.¬ (Consist: to abide, to continue, to hold up.)4.¬ ¬ The Church is loved by Christ.¬ ¬ ‚Äúmy church‚ÄĚa.¬ Christ Jesus' union with the Church.Ephesians 5:25¬ Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;¬ b.¬ Christ Jesus' sacrifice for the Church.1 Peter 1:18-19¬ Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;¬ ¬ But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:¬ c.¬ Christ Jesus' love for the Church.Revelation 1:5¬ And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,¬ John 15:12-13¬ ¬ This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. ¬ (13)¬ ¬ Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.5.¬ ¬ The Church is protected by Christ.¬ ¬ "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it"a.¬ Christ Jesus will present to Himself a glorious Church.Ephesians 5:25-27¬ Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;¬ That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,¬ ¬ That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.b.¬ Christ Jesus protects the purity of the Church and will present us faultless.Jude 24¬ Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,¬ 6.¬ ¬ The Church is the used by Christ.¬ ¬ "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven..."a.¬ Christ Jesus has empowered the Church.Matthew 28:18¬ And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.¬ b.¬ Christ Jesus has commissioned the Church.Matthew 28:19-20¬ ¬ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:¬ Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.¬
Temple Baptist Church - 4-4-20182 Peter 2:1-9Introduction:¬ A.¬ Last week,¬ we began a contextual look at ‚Äútheir pernicious ways‚ÄĚ and why the ‚Äúmany shall follow them.‚Ä̬ I stand amazed, though I know what the Bible says about the ‚Äúfalling away‚ÄĚ of the last days.¬ To fall away from something, you must first have stood there.B.¬ We looked at¬ the angels that sinned in heaven because of Lucifer's rejection of God and their loss of their first estate.¬ Then, Satan used a serpent to attack God's Word and beguile not only the serpent but also Eve.¬ The first step toward a reprobate mind is that ‚Äúwhen they knew God, they glorified Him not as God‚ÄĚ and became unthankful.C.¬ In verse 5, Peter gives our second example of false teachers and those who follow them.¬ Noah's day!¬ Genesis, chapter 4-6.¬ Let us tie this verse with the second step to a reprobate mind in Romans, chapter.¬ Romans 1:25¬ Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.D.¬ How did they change¬ the truth of God into a lie in Noah's day?1.¬ Genesis 4,¬ Cain, without any outside influence humanly speaking, heard and rejected the truth of God's Word.¬ ‚ÄúIf thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?‚ÄĚ tells us that he knew and understood truth.¬ The only answer that I have is that the satanic influence that beguiled Eve beguiled Cain!Genesis 4:7¬ If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.2.¬ Cain was a grown man¬ before Seth was born and the ungodly lineage in chapter 4 was in full swing.¬ God had separated Cain from the godly line.Genesis 4:16¬ And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.3.¬ Adam lived until Lamech¬ was 56 years old.¬ Methuselah was 243 years old when Adam died so Adam died 726 years before the flood.¬ I personally calculated this for a reason: During Adam's life, he watched as the two lines, Seth and Cain, were separated by God‚ÄĒthese two lines began to mix and mingle.E.¬ In Genesis, chapter 6, we find:1.¬ The multiplication¬ of the ungodly line of Cain.Genesis 6:1¬ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,¬ ¬ (The rejection of God and His truth was in full swing in the days of Noah.)2.¬ The rejection of truth¬ by the Messianic line of Seth.Genesis 6:2¬ That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.3.¬ The wickedness of both¬ the Messianic line of Seth and the ungodly line of Cain.Genesis 6:5¬ And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.4.¬ The few who embraced truth¬ verses the many who rejected truth.Genesis 6:8-9¬ But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. ¬ (9)¬ These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.F.¬ The truth of God had been turned into a lie.¬ Romans 1:25¬ Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.G.¬ I said all of this because, behind all of the sinfulness of Noah's day, lies the false prophets and teachers who influence both the saved and lost to reject truth and follow the ways of the world.1.¬ They Rejected The Paths Of Their Fathers. Genesis 5:22¬ And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:2.¬ They Rejected God's Command Of Distinction ‚Äď Genesis 6:2¬ ‚Äúsons of God . . . daughters of men‚Ä̬ 2 Corinthians 6: 14-18¬ Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?¬ And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?¬ And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.¬ Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,¬ And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.3.¬ They Rejected God's Morality ‚Äď Genesis 6:5 ‚Äúwickedness . . . evil continually‚ÄĚRomans 1:24¬ ¬ Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:Romans 1:26-27¬ ¬ For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:¬ And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.4.¬ They Rejected God's Structure For The Family ‚Äď Genesis 6:2¬ ‚Äúthey took . . . all which they chose‚ÄĚGenesis 2:24¬ ¬ Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.Genesis 4:19¬ ¬ ¬ And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.¬ ¬ Matthew 24:38¬ ¬ For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.5.¬ They Rejected God's Companionship ‚Äď¬ Genesis 6:9¬ These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.6.¬ They Rejected God's Offer Of Grace - Genesis 7:9-10¬ There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. ¬ (10)¬ And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.¬ ¬ (God left the door of the Ark open for seven days, the number of completion, and anyone could have changed their minds and gotten on board.)7.¬ They Reaped God's Judgement - Genesis 6:7¬ And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.Genesis 7:21¬ And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
Temple Baptist Church - 3-25-2018 - Homecoming Service1 Corinthians 13:1-13Introduction:A.¬ 31 years ago,¬ God did a wonderful thing for us here at Temple Baptist Church.¬ 1.¬ God brought a young family¬ to the little town of Laurens, SC.¬ A relatively young man with no pastoral experience but a vast experience in service and church problems.¬ A background that tempered his ministry to a hurting people.2.¬ This past Thursday, March 22nd, marked that eventful day.¬ With just a handful of people that attended Temple Baptist Church that Sunday, God started something extraordinary.¬ That little church had struggled over the years and was ripe for the beginning of a new era.¬ 3.¬ What we enjoy here this morning¬ is a result of what happened that day and over the past 31 years.¬ Many have come and gone over the years but there has always been a strong nucleus of people that remained.¬ It has been both our joy and our life to be your pastor's family!B.¬ I have changed topics¬ several times this week as we approach Resurrection Sunday next weekend.¬ Saturday morning, God settled my heart on this topic: ‚ÄúThe Love That Binds.‚ÄĚC.¬ As we read this great chapter, we find the word ‚Äúcharity.‚Ä̬ I want to look at it for a few minutes before we go back and enjoy the fellowship and much anticipated meal of Homecoming Day.D.¬ The meaning of Charity.¬ Many of the new perversions called ‚Äúbibles‚ÄĚ have changed the word to ‚Äúlove.‚Ä̬ This is a cardinal mistake!¬ The word ‚Äúlove‚ÄĚ is an ‚Äúumbrella‚ÄĚ that covers many kinds of love.¬ Charity is a peculiar love.¬ It is the love of the brotherhood.¬ 1 Thessalonians 4:9¬ But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.1.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their highly educated, articulate preachers.¬ Make a beautiful, articulate speech, impress the people but‚ÄĒwithout charity‚ÄĒyour message is just another hollow sound.2.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their social standing.¬ Have all the doctors, lawyers, etc. that you want and be ‚Äúnothing.‚Ä̬ A local church is not a social club.3.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by their beautiful buildings.¬ When I was stationed in Germany, I saw the beautiful architecture of 500 plus year old churches that are now just that, beautiful architecture.¬ A local church is not an ornate building but a ‚Äúcalled out assembly of saints‚ÄĚ to worship.4.¬ Many churches¬ are measured by the size of their membership.¬ The Bible is clear on the direction of the ‚Äúmany‚ÄĚ and the ‚Äúfew.‚Ä̬ Most of the time, the many are headed in the wrong direction because they are popular with this world.¬ A local church is measured in quality, not quantity.E.¬ You can have all¬ of these things and become a ‚Äúsounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal‚ÄĚ and be ‚Äúnothing‚ÄĚ in the sight of God.¬ John 13:35¬ By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.1 John 4:7-12¬ Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. ¬ (8)¬ He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. ¬ (9)¬ In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. ¬ (10)¬ Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ¬ (11)¬ Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. ¬ (12)¬ No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.1.¬ Charity must be a universal love of the brethren.¬ Verses 1-3.¬ ¬ It loves all and loves all equally.a.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with social status.b.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with financial clout.c.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with ethnicity.d.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with gender.e.¬ Charity has nothing¬ to do with faithfulness.e.¬ Charity is equal¬ from the pulpit to the pew.¬ From the pew to the pulpit.¬ From the back pew to the front pew.¬ 2.¬ Charity is a binding love of the brethren.¬ Verses 4-7.¬ It is what holds the local church together.a.¬ ¬ Charity¬ is longsuffering.b.¬ Charity is kind.c.¬ Charity is unselfish.d.¬ Charity behaves itself.e.¬ Charity is overlooking.f.¬ Charity hates evil but not the sinner.g.¬ Charity loves in truth.3.¬ Charity is an unfailing love of the brethren.¬ Verses 8-13.¬ Times change but biblical charity endures.a.¬ Paul names¬ three remaining gifts: faith, hope and charity.b.¬ Our faith¬ and our hope are anchored in the greatest of the three, Charity.4.¬ We do not know what the future holds for either our church or our membership.¬ a.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of death.b.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of sinfulness.c.¬ We have endured¬ the enemy of division.d.¬ But through it all,¬ because of our love for each other, we have and will continue to endure!
