How would you like the job of building this road? Reminds me of the seven mile bridge in the Florida Keys.
The road is built on several small islands and reefs, and is crossed by eight bridges, several roads and overpasses. This road has a view of the open sea, which is rare
on the roads along the Norwegian coast. You can see fjords and mountains near the road. The spectacular road quickly became a tourist attraction, insofar precautions should
be displayed while driving, because of the attendance of the road by the local population and visitors. Imagine you are driving

Temple Baptist Church - 8-6-2017Hebrews 11:8-10; James 2:21-23Introduction: A. The Book of James sets forth a faith that works! In chapter 2, James—through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost—called Abraham “the friend of God.” Not “a friend of God,” but the Scripture used the definite article “the.”James 2:21-23 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? (22) Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? (23) And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.B. This tells me a couple of things about Abraham:1. Abraham loved the Lord. Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.2. Abraham stuck close to the Lord. Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.C. Abraham was not a perfect man. God wants us to be perfect but that perfection is personal merit man. God honors a faith that glorifies Him and not the man! It was Abraham's faith, not his works, that made him the friend of God.Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.D. This morning, we are going back to about 2000 BC. Over 4000 years ago, God brought a man out of a heathen land and, by faith, made him the father of many nations.E. This is worthy of being quoted: “A faith that cannot be tested cannot be trusted.” I may be wrong, but I believe that a friend of mine, Pastor James Bowman, either quoted that or had it written in his bible. I now have it written in mine.F. Abraham showed his faith in God in many ways, but I want to zero in on three instances:1. Abraham walked with God in Faith when he left the Ur of the Chaldees. He did not know where he was goingbut he knew that God did!Genesis 12:1-5 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: (2) And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: (3) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (4) So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. (5) And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. (Would you walk with God by faith if He called you to leave home, family, friends, and serve Him in another land?)2. Abraham walked with God in Faith when he believed God for the Promised Seed. He knew that he and Sarah could not physically have a child but he knew that God could do the impossible! “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”Genesis 15:1-6 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. (2) And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? (3) And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. (4) And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. (5) And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. (6) And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.Romans 4:17-22 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. (18) Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. (19) And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb: (20) He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; (21) And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. (22) And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. (Would you walk with God in faith if He promised you the impossible?)3. Abraham walked with God in Faith when he offered up Isaac as God commanded. He knew that death was normally final but he also knew that God would resurrect Isaac from the dead because he was the promised seed and was childless! We also must have faith in the resurrection of the Promised Seed.Genesis 22:1-3 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. (2) 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.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. (Would you walk with God in faith if He asked you to give Him the most important thing in your life?)Conclusion: Galatians 3:6-9 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. (7) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. (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. (9) So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Temple Baptist Church - 7-30-2017Romans 1:8-15Introduction:A. In these verses, we find the heart of the great apostle laid bare before us. Paul was possibly the greatest missionary to ever live. He had a passion for God, though in ignorance, before his salvation. When he was saved in Acts, chapter 9, that passion did not cool down. His love for a people whom he had never met shows up in these verses. I want to take a short look at them tonight.B. Paul's heart:1. Paul had a Thankful Heart – verse 8. We live in days of jealous hearts of men who preach the gospel. I am all for separation when the Bible commands it, but we often spend our time “wrestling” with flesh and blood instead of principalities, powers, and wickedness in high places. We need to thank God for every man of God, every Bible preaching church, every soul winner, and every soul won to Christ. Many forget who the enemy is, that sinners are dying without Christ, and we are on the same side!Philippians 1:15-18 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: (16) The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: (17) But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. (18) What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.2. Paul had a Prayerful Heart – verse 9. If we cannot personally reach souls in other lands, we can pray for them. Our Lord's prayer request should be ours. We have a prayer list here at church where we share our prayer time with people on the list that we do not know. We need to pray for Christ's request.Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.1 Timothy 2:1-4 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; (2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; (4) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.3. Paul had a Willing Heart – verse 10. Paul did not ask or send others of go, he was more than willing. Isaiah was willing after his eyes beheld the Lord, high and lifted up. Paul was willing to go. Do we have that willingness to just go across town or to the store or in the neighborhood to share the gospel. If thee is a willingness, then that willingness will find a way.Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.Acts 9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.4. Paul had a Sharing Heart – verse 11. Paul's desire was to establish the Roman believers with sound doctrine. It is sound, biblical doctrine that will hold both the believer and the local church when the storms come. So many churches in the south have no doctrinal grounding. Paul continued to use the phrase “but I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren.”Psalms 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.5. Paul had a Caring Heart – verse 12. Paul understood that we must stand together with out churches of like precious faith. Though we are an independent Baptist Church, I do care about the spiritual and physical condition of others. As in Nehemiah's day, we are spread thinly about the wall with a construction tool in one hand and a sword in the other. When needed, one can call and others respond.2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; (4) Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.3 John 3-4 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. (4) I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.6. Paul had a Purposed Heart – verse 13. The clearest verses concerning Paul's love for the Lord and the ministry is found in the Book of Philippians. His earnest expectation and hope was to magnify Christ either by life or death.Philippians 1:20-21 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (21) For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.7. Paul had a Debtor's Heart – verse 14. Though the Lord appeared to Paul individually on the Damascus Road, the “pricks” that our Lord spoke of were varied. Paul had a knowledge of the Lord's life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection because he was “in the know.” He also had the privilege to watch the martyrdom of some of God's choice servants such as John the Baptist. Those who died left a witness that brought Paul to Christ and he now owed that same witness to the rest of this lost world.Acts 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.8. Paul had a Ready Heart – verse 15. Paul was ready to try the doors of opportunity and walk through them as they opened. Acts 9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Temple Baptist Church - 7-16-2017Genesis 6:1-9Introduction:A. Several weeks ago, I preached on Enoch, a man who walked with God in Consistency. 1. The phrase “walked with God” is found twice in Genesis 5:22, 24. Those were hard spiritual times that rival the days in which we live. For 300 years, this man walked in agreement with his Lord. There can be no walking with God without such agreement. 2. In our day, so many professing “Christians” walk (as Bro. Richard Rawls would have said) at a “guilty distance” from God. I believe that the crux of the problem is that they are attempting to make God agree with their sinful lifestyle instead of agreeing with His life of holiness. “Be not deceived, God is not mocked.”B. This morning, I want to look at the third instance where the actual phrase “walked with God” is found. 1. In the 700 years between the time of Enoch's “going home” and the Flood, things spiritually continued in decline. The ungodly line of Cain became the “rule” while the Godly line of Seth “became the “exception.” Notice verse 4.Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (The offspring of the ungodly union of the sons of God with the daughters of men produced men who were mighty men and men of renown. This verse amplifies the thought that as God's people became weaker—less known—and less followed, the children of the world became—mighty—better known—and the role models of the world. Notice their offspring were not giants as some would suggest as the giants were before these children were born.)2. Holiness became unpopular among the people of God and they now walked in the ways of the world in spiritual comfort. In our day, holiness is no longer preached to the modern churches because of its unpopularity with the masses of Christendom so-called. The sinful now sit in churches with no conviction and impunity! 3. We see the disapproval of God shown with the spiritual condition and sinfulness of the masses of people. God had been striving with man but His efforts were being rejected.Genesis 6:3-6 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. (4) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (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. (6) And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.C. Walking with God was not easy in Noah's day and is not easy in our day as the world tries its best to entice the child of God to comply with its standards. Noah walked with God in spiritual adversity. Let's look at just a few of the things that surrounded Noah's walk with God and make some spiritual applications to our day.1. Noah walked with God in days of spiritual decline. The advancement of the ungodly “sons of God!” “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them.” a. This statement constitutes an oxymoron: a rhetorical statement. A combination of words that have the opposite or very different meanings. “Ungodly” and “sons of God” are “mirror images” or exact opposites.b. From Adam and Eve, which I believe to be possibly the godliest couple in the world. 1) NOT because they started as the only couple in the world, but because—after the fall—there is no further mention of sinfulness.2) In the process of time, they had two sons—one lost and one saved with the elder son, Cain, killing the younger son, Abel.3) In chapter 4 of Genesis, we find the genealogy of the wicked line of Cain followed by the godly line of Seth. These two lines of people were contemporary with each other. 4) In chapter 5, we found Enoch walked with God. I believe this statement carries two thoughts, one spoken and one unspoken. There is nothing said about walking with God until Noah's day which implies spiritual decline that made Enoch stand out.5) In chapter 6, we see the wickedness of the spiritually destitute sons of God!c. The ungodly line of Cain was greatly multiplied as they introduced polygamy in Genesis 4:19. In Genesis 6:1, the Bible says that men (the ungodly line of Cain) multiplied. More children were born to lost families than to saved ones. Noah's family was greatly outnumbered and the godly line of Seth was becoming a minority.Genesis 4:19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.d. In our day, we have adopted the worldly philosophy that we can no longer afford to have more than one or two children while the world is having multitudes of children out of wedlock. The unsaved population is growing at an astronomical rate while the children born to godly parents is in decline. e. Because our quiver has become smaller and the world's larger, sin has escalated.2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many (the unsaved) there be which go in thereat: (14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few (the saved) there be that find it.2. Noah walked amid a sin filled world. “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.” a. Noah walked in days of great temptation. Sin had become so common place that God's people no longer saw its sinfulness until they suffered its result. Sin had escalated to the point that it sickened God to the point of destroying mankind. Genesis 6:6-7 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (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.b. In our day, we are surrounded by sinfulness as fornication, drinking, nudity, sodomy, etc. and “Christianity” no longer sees sin as God sees sin. Sin is no longer preached against because the churches are filled with it. People who profess Christ as Lord and Savior seemingly live very comfortably in such a wicked world.1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.3. Noah walked with God under great peer pressure. “ That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” a. These “sons of God” were of the godly line of Seth (not some Angel Theory). Noah watched as the people of God drifted from their spiritual moorings and became more like the world. No doubt there was great pressure from his peers to “let his hair down” and join the crowd. b. I am relatively sure that the sons of God let Noah, also one of the sons of God, know that he was the “odd ball out!” I can hear them now: “We are the sons of God and find nothing wrong with worldliness. You must be a fanatic or something.” When people get out of the will of God, they want others to do the same so they won't look bad spiritually. No doubt the peer pressure was there.b. In our day, people, who claim to be saved, live in worldliness and sin instead of purity and godliness. The peer pressure is: we are save and see nothing wrong with being more like the world than like Christ so what is wrong with you? I guess you are “holier than thou” or a member of some old fashioned cult.1 Peter 4:4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:4. Therefore, Noah walked with God in loneliness. “Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.” a. Noah chose a path that led him away from the world but toward God. No one got on the Ark but Noah and his family. Though there were multitudes of people on earth, there was no spiritual agreement or fellowship for Noah's family. The “sons of God” thought Noah's way was too straight and Noah thought their way was too sinful. John 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.Hebrews 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.b. Today, God's people are maligned by the very people who claim to know God. We have become cultic, legalistic, and too straight laced for this world. We sing the little chorus “I Have Decided To Follow Jesus.” One verse says, “Though none go with me, still I will follow.”Luke 6:22-23 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. (23) Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.5. Noah walked with God in ridicule. “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” a. Never had it rained and yet Noah was building an Ark. Not a little pontoon boat but a boat of great dimensions. For 120 years, he and his family labored. For 120 years, Noah preached the judgment of God. Possibly this became known as Noah's Folly in those days as men walked past and, more than likely, ridiculed his family. The world does not like people who are different!2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;b. God's men still preach the Second Advent! That our Lord is coming to take His people home and the judgment of God will begin. The world ridicules such preaching as the predictions of men have failed. We know not the day nor the hour of His coming but we do know that He is coming again.John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.6. Noah walked with God in safety. “And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. (6) And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. (7) And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.” (Genesis 7:5-7) a. The flood came! The prophesied judgement of God became a fearful reality. Noah's family was safe while the world perished.Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.b. Thank God that we will one day be forever with the Lord. We walk safely in this world and will one day walk eternally safely in heaven.Conclusion: Noah walked with God in Spiritual Adversity and so will we IF we also walk with God.
