Temple Baptist Church - 7-15-2018Acts 2:41-47Introduction: A. Most local churches and denominations have become confused as to their purpose for existence. 1. A preacher from the 1800's was quoted: “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.”2. To show the ignorance of church going people, they commonly say that it does not matter where you go to church if you go somewhere.B. The modern-day churches are doing this very thing.a. They have become social clubs. Where the elite of society join to be seen and promote their careers. Notice how few doctors, teachers, lawyers, business men, and politicians join true New Testament churches.b. They have become entertainment centers. Their programs and music reflect the mood and priorities of the world.c. They have become safe havens for the sinful. Sinners, both lost and saved, are not being confronted with their sin and, therefore, continue in them.d. They have become banks where the tithes and offerings of the saints now rest in bank (or personal) accounts. God never intended for money to remain in the bank while a world is dying without Christ and missionaries are struggling to get to the field.e. The have become more worldly and less godly. There was a time when the church was a place for the rich to show off their elegance in clothing fashions but now it is the reverse. Today, the church has become a place where people wear their casual clothing along with sandals and flip-flops.C. I find no Martyr's Roll containing the names of church entertainers. Men of God were put to death for not bowing or bending to the whims of society. They were not politically correct! They died for the Word of God!2 Timothy 3:10-13 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, (11) Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. (12) Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (13) But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.D. What is the purpose of the local church? This morning, we read the First Mention of the local church in operation. The Lord had previously mentioned church discipline the Book of Matthew but it is in Acts, chapter 2, that we find the assembly and its work.1. Evangelization – Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. (Peter had preached Christ publicly in this chapter and thousands turned to Christ.)Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both inJerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (In our Lord's command of evangelization, He mentioned both home and foreign missions.)Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 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. (Go ye, teach, baptize. We must go, they must hear and believe, then they are baptized.)2. Education – Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine.Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 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. (The importance of sound doctrine is found in “all things.”)1 Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 3. Exhortation – Acts 2:42, 46 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers … and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart. Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (The exhortation of God's people.)2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (The exhortation of God's Word.)Hebrews 13:22 And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.4. Unification – Acts 2:46 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.Ephesians 4:13-14 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;(The Scriptural education that only the Bible brings.)5. Supplication - Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Isaiah 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. Matthew 21:13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.6. Adoration – Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. (Giving praise to He, who alone is worthy: our Lord Jesus Christ.)Psalms 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Temple Baptist Church - 6-27-20182 Peter 3:10-13Introduction:A. As we get to the end of the Book of 2 Peter, we find the eminent Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and the impending judgement of fallen angels, the unsaved, and the removal of the curse placed upon God's creation. Two things:1. “Looking For” – As God's children, we are excited in anticipation of eternity. A new body, a new home, and a new heaven and earth.2. “Hastening Unto” – It will not be long until time is no more! As we studied in Romans, chapter 8, we found the saved groaning, the creation groaning, and the Holy Ghost groaning. The Lord told John, “Behold, I come quickly.” This does not reference a set time but the suddenness of His coming. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.3. “Righteousness” – Sin judged and the curse removed.B. I know that men of God have expounded these verses, but I have never personally heard a sermon preached on the subject. I have never had a pastor who preached through the books of the Bible verse by verse. I believe that this failure (I am not knocking my pastors but explaining the necessity of preaching verse by verse) has led to God's people having a “lack of knowledge” that has hurt their spiritual growth. C. I just want to take a few minutes and look at the sequence of the removal of the curse of sin. The why, when, where, and time of sin's curse removed from God's creation.1. God's creation in all of its purity and perfection. Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Very-vehemence, a superlative; good-beautiful, bountiful, a very good thing, something very special.)Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. (No theistic evolution: finished, all the host of them.)Job 38:5-7 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? (6) Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; (7) When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?Psalms 19:1-3 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. (2) Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. (3) There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.2. Sin's entrance and the curse of God's creation implemented. Genesis 3:17-19 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; (18) Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; (19) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.Genesis 5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands,because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.Isaiah 24:4-6 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. (5) The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. (6) Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.Job 25:5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.3. The creation's curse removed, and righteousness restored. There will be a two-fold judgement for sin taking place at the same time:a. The Great White Throne Judgement – Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (God's judgement for man's sinfulness is Fire!)2 Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (Peter, timewise, ties the judgement of ungodly men and the renewal of the universe together!)b. The Removal of the Curse of the Heavens and the Earth:1) The Time of the Renewal – Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. The key to know the time of the renovation is found in Revelation 21:1: “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) The Method of the Renewal - 2 Peter 3:10-13 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (11) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (12) Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (13) Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. (God's judgement for sin in the heavens and the earth is also by Fire!)
Temple Baptist Church - 6-17-20181 Kings 21:1-16Introduction:A. We have just read an old familiar story about a man of integrity. A man who thought that his heritage was of far greater worth than money. Naboth died for his decision to not “sell the farm.”B. First, I want to give a little typology found in this story.1. Ahab, a wicked king, is a type of Satan and the world.2. Naboth is a type of the people of God.3. The vineyard is a type of church.4. The “inheritance of my fathers” is the antiquity of his forefather's vineyard.5. Naboth's death is a type of the price paid for the inheritance of the vineyard.C. A wicked King desired to buy an old vineyard that was adjacent to the palace. 1. I wonder how many times Ahab looked out at this beautiful vineyard and desired it. Ahab was not a vine dresser! There came a day when Ahab decided to make Naboth an “offer that he could not refuse.” I do not think that Ahab offered him less than it was worth because money was no object to the king. He thought that Naboth would certainly sell to him because he was the king and the offer seemed fair. Naboth refused! He refused because it was his inheritance of his family's heritage. 2. Naboth's refusal was a “slap in the face” Ahab. Ahab was sad in spirit because of Naboth's refusal. Jezebel devised a plan to end Naboth's life and take the vineyard.D. I want to give an analogy of our day that represents this story well.1. Harrison Bridge Road intersects with Fairview Road in Simpsonville. Fairview Road has been one of the fastest growing in the upstate as businesses have jumped up everywhere. There are quite a few new housing developments along the road: homes, condominiums, and apartment complexes. High dollar property!2. In close proximity to the intersection that I referred to, there was a huge farm. Beautiful rolling hills, a pond, a home, completely fenced in with plenty of cattle. For a number of years, I watched that farm with interest because of the rising price of acreage and the dwindling amount of open property for builders to buy and sell.3. I was thrilled every time that I took the back way home and passed that old farm! I knew that numerous offers had probably been made and the price, no doubt, in the millions. I knew that some older people probably lived there, and it was the homeplace that children were raised in and not grown children and grandchildren still visited.4. Every time I saw it, I thought, hold out!! I made mention of it to Barbara more than once and I did not want the owners to “sell the farm.” It was a constant reminder of a time now gone and a family home place that could be visited.5. Now, the farm is gone, and condos, apartments, and housing are on the land. Home gone, pond gone, cattle gone, fences gone, and family gone. Someone “sold the farm.”E. Just bear with me for a few minutes. 1. I was raised at 710 Railroad Street in Earlington, KY. I little coal mining town nestled in the “heart of the coal fields.” Our home was rundown when Dad bought it. I remember Dad sitting on the floor joists working as he leveled the floors (as much as could be leveled) and put down beautiful hardwood floors. 2. In size, it was a modest home with just four rooms and a bath. Dad took a walk-through closet and made a small bedroom. It was home to Mom and Dad along with three boys and one special little girl. The year that Barbara and I married, Dad sold the house and bought one in Morton's Gap, KY but—to me—it was never home. I never lived there. 3. I still go by the old house on Railroad Street that needs to be bulldozed, stop and try to look in the windows. The memories of my childhood flood back but it is now just an old empty shell of a house that has become an eyesore. To the world, it is just an old house that is no longer inhabitable because dad “sold the farm!” But, while it stands, it will always be home.4. Around 1990, mom sold our little farm. I now go back, and the old cabin is gone and all is in ruins. The memories flood back with a bitter-sweet feeling of the glory of its past and the ruins of its present. Mom “sold the farm!”F. Throughout the Bible, we find people who “sold the farm.”1. Adam and Eve sold out for the knowledge of good and evil.2. Esau sold out for a bowl of pottage.3. Achan sold out for a wedge of gold, a bag of silver, and a Babylonish garment.4. Samson sold out for a loose living woman.5. Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver.6. Demas sold out for the love of this present world.G. Why can we not “sell the farm” at Temple Baptist Church. Satan wants to destroy it and the world would love to have it!1 Because of the Change. Verse 2. “that I may have it for a garden of herbs” a “Herb Garden” instead of a fruitful vineyard. I am not against herbs, but I believe that the change from a well dressed vineyard to a garden of herbs was a serious downgrade. If Temple Baptist Church ever decides to accept the price offered by the world (more people, more money), there will be a swift—radical change. a. The music will change. There will be a “praise leader” and “praise band” to disgrace our pulpit.b. The Old Paths of our fathers will give way to the New Paths of this modern age. c. Casualness will replace respectfulness and the sanctuary will become a place of multi-tasking. The hallowedness of the church grounds will be gone.d. The “must” of worship in spirit and truth will become the worship of “another” spirit with little or no truth.e. The “Gold Standard” of the King James Bible will give way to the corruption of the new versions that add to, take away, and diminish the Word of God.2. Because of the Cost. Verses 2, 6. “Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.” Money cannot buy what we have: the best church that I have ever been a member of. a. A unity that have not found in any other. The peace of God here that passeth all understanding. A fellowship so sweet that we consider each other family with a bond that cannot be broken. A love and fellowship that cannot be bought at any price. If we ever “sell the farm,” what we now enjoy and take for granted will change.1 John 1:3-7 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. (4) And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. (5) This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (6) If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: (7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.b. A pulpit that will not be compromised. Men who ascend into this pulpit are clean men, King James Bible men, God's men! I thank God for a people who will allow God's man to preach the unsearchable, unchanging truth of an old King James Bible. If we ever “sell the farm,” the pulpit will be gone!c. Missionaries that know, love, and pray for us will be gone. We have supported many of these missionaries for over 30 years, many over 20 years. We know them, and they know us! Good missionaries will drop Temple Baptist Church if we ever “sell the farm.”d. If we “sell the farm,” the cost will be greater than we could ever imagine.3. Because of the Children. Verse 3. “The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee.” a. As the vineyard once belonged to the fathers, now belonged to Naboth, it also belonged to Naboth's posterity! “Fathers” is plural and is to be understood that the vineyard had been in the family for many generations. b. Though they are young and have little or no say, Naboth would be selling “the children's farm!” The place of their childhood; the stability of their spiritual well-being; their roots. Though some move off, some stay and will raise their children here.c. Thus it is with the church if we “sell the farm.” When our children and grandchildren decide to visit, the church that they were brought up in will only be a memory. I wonder what the little farm family's children and grandchildren think when they drive by the old homeplace on Fairview Road? d. Our church is not the most beautiful or the most expensive, but it is ours! It is not only ours but also belongs to our children and grandchildren.Conclusion: The farm on Fairview Road is but a fading memory; our family home in Kentucky along with the little farm are but a fading memory. Let us keep our church for ourselves, our children, and for a light along the highway.
