� Temple Baptist Church - 9-3-2023Psalm 17:13-15� Introduction:� A.� Tonight's Psalm is another that can be preached in many ways, so I want to look at a phrase in it tonight that believe that will be a blessing to each of us.� B.� In verses 13-14, we see the prospering of the wicked around us.� � 1.� They seem to have more than the righteous and the tendency is to envy them to some degree. Many of God's children have chosen the better things of life at the expense of the luxurious things of life.� 2.� When we envy the world, we strive to emulate the world.� So many of God's people are caught up in “getting, getting, getting” instead of “giving, giving, giving!”� The Bible says that it is better to give than to receive!� 3.� Their “portion” is in this life, so I am glad that they have at least a temporal enjoyment.� God is good to the unsaved!� It rains on the just and the unjust.� 4.� Their bellies are full here, but they pass their riches down to children who will possibly or probably squander all they worked hard to earn.� C.� The Psalmist, in verse 15, gives us a proper, biblical perspective of death or the Second Coming of Christ.� Our “portion” will be an eternal one.� 1.� The word “satisfied” in found 43x and “satisfaction” 2x in the Bible with every mention of these words found in the Old Testament!� 2.� “Contentment” is found several times in the New Testament, but “contentment” is not “satisfaction.”� I often tell people that I am content but not satisfied.� I am good with the things that are but would love to see things better.� We are never satisfied.� D.� We often confuse these two words because we live in a temporal, ever changing world.� 1.� We often confuse the words “satisfied” and “content.”� We can be content but not satisfied though we may often use the word “satisfied.”� Temporal thing may bring a measure of joy but things often change and men become dissatisfied.� 2.� Contentment means that you can be comfortable in your present condition.� You eat until you are content but will later become hungry again because your physical appetite will soon return. Dissatisfaction then becomes their driving force.� 3.When truly satisfied in the eternal sense means that you will never desire or seek anything different because you have all you could possibly want forever.� � E.� The Psalmist lived in the light of his impending death.� Today, we do have another scenario facing us, the Rapture of God's Church.� But, the Psalmist understood that he would awake in Glory and be satisfied when he took on the likeness of the Lord.� F.� Eternity has an unnumbered amount of things that will satisfy us so here are just a few.� 1.� Satisfied with Our Saviour.� � 1 John 3:2� Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.� 2.� Satisfied with Our Likeness.� � 1 John 3:2� Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.� 3.� Satisfied with Our Bodies.� � 1 Corinthians 15:52-53� In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.� (53)� For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.� 4.� Satisfied with Our People.� � Revelation 7:9-10� After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;� (10)� And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.� 5.� Satisfied with Our Home.� � John 14:2� In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.� 6.� Satisfied with Our Surroundings.� 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.� � 7.� Satisfied with New Jerusalem.� � Revelation 21: 2� And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.� 8.� Satisfied with Our Eternity.� � 1 Thessalonians 4:17� 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.� Conclusion:� One day just like today and could be today, we will leave or earthly home behind and wake up in the likeness of our Lord and Saviour.� In that day we will be completely and eternally satisfied.
� Temple Baptist Church - 7-30-2023Jeremiah� 6:16Introduction:� A.� I have often said that we live in a changing world politically, morally, socially, and—unfortunately—spiritually.� 1.� Not all changes are bad.� Some changes in our world have been beneficial as our standard of life has been greatly enhanced.� 2.� But other changes are prophetic ones.� “Worse and worse, falling away, lukewarm, satisfied with life outside of God and the Lord JesusChrist.� � B.� I will leave the change for the most part this morning because the Bible says it will come and I believe the Bible.� � C.� It is the spiritual change that I believe that God hates most.� 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways…”� D.� People are being taught that God does not mind how we live as long as we are saved.� They are taught that “turning from their wicked ways” is a doctrine of the far-right conservatives and it a legalistic doctrine.� E.� Jeremiah 6:16 is not a suggestion; it is not a recommendation; it is not negotiable;� it is a COMMAND!� God will not walk with anyone outside of the Old Paths.� � 1.� Most people today either Reject the Old Paths or try Renovate the Old Paths into New Paths.� A term often heard is “Reformed Theology”.� Theology does not need to be reformed.� 2.� New Paths are not right paths.� We MUST walk in the Old Paths which are the Right Paths which are the Only Paths that God will walk with us in!� Ecclesiastes 1:9� The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.� 3.� If anything is theologically new, it is not old, and if it is not old, it is not right!� F.� When the Old Paths are forsaken, God says that we are to Repent and Return.� Verse 16 is not a request; it is a requirement.� 1.� “Stand ye”� That means to not be either moved or removed.� 2.� “See”� Make sure that you know where you are standing is right.� 3.� “Ask”� The Old Paths are both available and knowable.� They are found in your Bible if you happen to own the right one and that is King James!� No exceptions.� 4.� “Old paths”� Not the new ones of the 20th� and 21st� centuries.� These paths are Old Paths.� 5.� “Where is the Good way”� God's way is not only the right way, but also the good way.� 6.� “And walk therein”� Clear paths that are well worn through the ages by our spiritual forefathers who walked those paths and made plain to us who follow them.� 7.� “And ye shall find rest for your souls”� How wonderful it is to know what God said and to walk with Him within His Word.� We will not find rest for our souls in New Paths because they cause confusion and division.� 8. “But they said, We will not walk therein.”� Paths of rejection.� People in our day want to change what God said, walk contrary to what God said, and think that they are right with God.� G.� The Old Paths of:� 1.� Scripture.� I neither have nor do I want a modern translation from the New Text, the wrong text, the Wescott-Hort Text: the minority text, the critical text, the Catholic text.� Our Bible is the Authorized King James Bible of our forefathers.� 2.� Salvation.� No “wink wink, nod nod, one two three—repeat after me” prayers of salvation.� Our salvation is the old salvation of our forefathers.� Repentance from dead works and faith toward God through the Gospel.� Salvation is a heart thing; salvation is a changing thing; salvation is an eternal thing.� 3.� Sanctification.� Our sanctification is the old sanctification of our forefathers.� A life that is changed through salvation and a life that is obedient through separation from this present evil world.� Sanctification is light and salt!� 4.� Security.� � Our security is the old-fashioned security of our forefathers.� Security or eternal life is a hated doctrine in our day.� Security is found in Christ and Christ alone!� We are not good enough to get saved and if you lived a perfect life, it could not save you.� Salvation is a finished work through the gospel alone.� We are not good enough to remain saved as we are sinners by both birth and choice.� 5.� Safety.� As our forefathers walked in spiritual safety, we walk in the Old Paths of spiritual safety.� Life is hard at times, life is unfair at times, life is confusing at times, but “Safety is of the LORD!”� Walk in the Old Paths of safety and you will find rest for your soul!� Conclusion:� “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”� � They rejected the Old Paths in Jeremiah's day.� “But they said, we will not walk therein!”� But we here at Temple Baptist Church will continue to walk in the Old Paths!
Temple Baptist Church - 7-5-2023John 10:22-30� Introduction:� A.� John's Gospel and 1 John run together in many ways.� As I continue on the subject of Blessed Assurance, I want to tie some verses together.� B.� � John 10:27� My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:� 1.� Salvation – “My sheep”� 2.� Spiritual Growth – “hear my voice”� 3.� Spiritual Maturity – “and they follow me”� C.� 1 John 5:13-14� 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.� (14)� And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:� 1.� Salvation – “that believe on the name of the Son of God”� 2.� Spiritual Growth – “that ye may know … that ye may believe”� 3.� Spiritual Maturity – “the confidence that we have in him”� D.� In Part 1, we found our Salvation.� We saw the blessedness of who we are in Christ Jesus.� Saved, forgiven, washed, sanctified, justified, Sonship, and completion.� Praise the Lord that salvation is both an act of God and a gift from God!� We do not have to maintain our salvation because we are in Christ Jesus and in Him is no sin!� Free from the penalty of sin though still having to live in the presence of sin but one day will be delivered from the presence of sin!� E.� In Part 2, we found our Spiritual Growth.� We saw the blessedness of what we have in Christ Jesus.� Assurance, deliverance, peace, blessings, security, the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and representation.� Salvation is a gift of God, and these are gifts from God.� We are blessed as well as saved.� F.� In Part 3, we find our Spiritual Maturity, I want to look at some things that we, as spiritually mature children of God, should know.� These are things that the world will never know or even comprehend.� Here is my “Short List.”� 1.� We know� Salvation.� � I do not think I am saved; I do not hope I am saved; I know I am saved!� A place of protection, perfection, and privilege.� Aren't you glad that you are saved?� How do I know that I am saved?� The bible tells me so but there are also other ways of knowing.� a.� Because of Confidence.� � � Romans 10:9-13� 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.� (10)� For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.� (11)� For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.� (12)� For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.� (13)� For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.� b.� Because of Change. 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.� c.� Because of Conviction.� Romans 9:1� I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,� d.� Because of Company.� 1 John 3:14� We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.� 2.� We know Truth.� We live in days of lies and deception.� The world lives in confusion and change but the Bible does not change!� What I hold in my hand tonight will continue to stay the same.� a.� Truth in Deliverance.� John 8:32� And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.� b.� Truth in Discipleship.� 3 John 1:3-4� 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.� c.� Truth in Doctrine.� 2 Timothy 2:15� Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.� 3.� We know Prophecy.� We live in days of fear.� Men's hearts failing them for fear.� As God's children, we need to have a peace of God that passeth all understanding.� a.� He is Descending.� 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:� (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.b.� We are Departing.� 1 Thessalonians 4:17� 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.� c.� We are Destined.� 1 Corinthians 15:51-54� Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,� (52)� In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.� (53)� For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.� (54)� So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.� 4.� We know Eternity.� Mankind is controlled by fear of death.� � Hebrews 2:15� And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.� a.� We shall be like Christ.� � 1 John 3:2� Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.� b.� We shall be with Christ.� � Revelation 22:3-5� And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:� (4)� And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.� (5)� And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.� c.� We shall be satisfied by Christ.� � Psalms 17:15� As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
