Temple Baptist Church - 11-21-2021Psalm 92Introduction: A. Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday, but we are to be a thankful people 365 days a year. Many get disturbed over Thanksgiving and Christmas being overlapped. I do not! I think that Thanksgiving through Christmas is truly the most wonderful time of the year and my mind goes to the blessedness of Christ throughout. B. Normally, at this time of the year, we count our earthly blessings and God has certainly been better to us than we have been to him. C. I want to thank the Lord for a hedged life. The Lord has saved my life from the destruction of sin, self, and Satan! Look around at where you are and then take a look at the destruction of sin in the lives of people that you know and say, “But for the grace of God go I!” God changed our desires and our direction when He saved us. D. We live in days of lack of contentment and satisfaction. People are neither content nor satisfied with who they are no what they have. 1. More is never enough! Not only the world, but God's people lack satisfaction and contentment. Preachers are possibly the worst of all in this area. Some continually move because they never learn contentment. This morning, you are looking at a contented man! 2. The Bible says much about contentment. We need to be a contented people but satisfaction is another matter. Let me explain the difference. Contentment does not mean that you necessarily like your situation but it is livable! You will improve it if you can but, if you cannot, then it will be alright. Satisfaction is entirely different. a) Contentment is something that needs to be sought! Timothy 6:6-7 But godliness with contentment is great gain. b) Contentment is something that must be learned! Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. (There is a song that says, “There's a roof up above me, I've a good place to sleep, there's food on my table, and shoes on my feet. You gave me your love, Lord, and a fine family. Thank you, Lord, for your blessings on me!” We need to take a look at our lives and realize just how great it is to live in America.) c) Contentment is something that must be realized! Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. E. I want to look at a few things of a spiritual nature that make me want to thank God. 1. I Thank God For My Salvation: In Christ alone, full, free, and eternal! “That God should love a sinner such as I; how wonderful is love like this?” John 4:13-14 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: (14) But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 2. I Thank God For My Deliverance: From self to Christ, from darkness to light, death to life, bondage to liberty, rebellion to loving submission! He delivered me; He is delivering me; and He shall deliver me! 2 Timothy 4:17-18 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. (18) And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 3. I Thank God For My Bible: leads us and guides us, protects us and provides for us, encourages, it assures us, and it matures us. You can trade “bibles” all you want but I am satisfied with the old King James Bible! Psalms 119:97 O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. 4. I Thank God For My Church: I neither want nor would have any other! The best people in the world grace these pews! 1 Corinthians 16:24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. 5. I Thank God For My Future: as Bro. Jim Rutland used to say, “All of this and heaven too!” One day just like today and it could be today, I will be finally home! O, that will be glory for me! Psalms 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. 6. I Thank God For My Life: a wonderful wife, a wonderful family, a wonderful life, a wonderful ministry, and the list could go on all day! You can have your money, houses, and land! I have plenty; I have enough; I have all that I want or need! Psalms 103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. Conclusion: Let us be a thankful people, especially over the next month as now our hearts turn to the wonderful birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The best things in life cannot be bought! You can be content and not be happy, but you cannot be satisfied and not be happy! Isaiah 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness

Temple Baptist Church - 11-14-20212 Samuel 12:13-20 Introduction: A. The last time I preached on David, we studied one of the darkest periods of the Bible where the man of God committed and tried to cover his sin. B. The Greatness of David's Sin. David knew! 1. David knew that he was not where he should be: leading the battle in the stead of Joab. 2. David was walking on his roof in the evening and looking down on the roofs, and therefore, the personal lives of his people. It is cool on the roof when the sun goes down, especially in hot climates. 3. David knew that it was lust to look and a death sentence to commit adultery. 4. David knew that covering his sin was sin and that he would not prosper. 5. David knew that murder was also a sin unto death. 6. David thought that he had all bases covered but, in his sinful condition, forgot that God saw what he had done. 2 Samuel 11:27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. C. The Greatness of God's Longsuffering. David could have gotten right at any time. God allowed David's unrepentant sin to continue until it was eventually finished. James 1:15-16 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (16) Do not err, my beloved brethren. D. The Greatness of God's Love. God certainly loved David and the severity of his chastisement showed the greatness of that love. The Lord hates our sin, but His love never diminishes or changes. The Lord knew how, when, and where to get David's attention. 1. David's Exposure. a. Verse 1. God would not allow David to remain in a sinful condition. God sent Nathan, David's lifelong friend. David had named one of his sons, Nathan, in honor of his friend, Nathan. b. Verse 13. God did not allow the avenger of blood to come to David. Bathsheba's grandfather, Ahithophel, would later turn on David, siding with Absalom. God spared David's life. c. Verses 21-25. David was ultimately restored both spiritually and physically. 2. David's Chastisement. 1. Verse 7-8. David's exposure and humbling. David could have gotten right in 2 Samuel 11:1, but he chose to continue in his sin. Eventually, God would publicly expose him. God spared David's life, but David had to live with what he did personally and in the eyes of his people that he was there to protect. 2. Verses 9-10. The "sword" never departed from David's house. God allowed the consequences of David's sin to remain: the death of his child; the rape of his daughter by a son; the murder of his son by another son; the overthrowing of his kingdom by a son; the death of another son; etc. 3. Verse 18. It cost David his son's life. One of the greatest punishments for unrepentant sin is the affects that it has upon those whom he loves. 3. David's Restoration. a. David Was Submissive to The Man Of God When Rebuked – vs. 7-13. I can tell a lot about your spirituality by how well you take rebuke. Many get mad and will not hear it while others rebel against the Lord's rebuke, but King David submitted to the prophet of God. Over the years, there have been times when I have to reprove and rebuke someone. It was not done because I took pleasure in it, but because it became a necessity! Most who were rebuked left never to return but thank God for a few who got it right. (Those who got right instead of getting mad became blessings to both the church and this pastor.) b. David Made No Excuse for His Sinfulness – vs. 16. He simply got it right with God. The natural thing to do is to either excuse or justify sin. You will never get right with the Lord without confession, which is agreement with God. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. c. David Laid Aside His Pride Before God and Man – vs. 15-18. David fasted and lay on his face before the Lord and his servants. As a king, most men would have had a hard time with the humility that it takes to get right with the Lord but David cared nothing for his position at this point. 1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: d. David Accepted the Chastening Of The Lord Without Complaint – vs. 16. He knew that what he did was flagrantly wrong and that God, in His righteousness, rewarded him rightly. He took it like the man that he was. Hebrews 12:11-13 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. 12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; 13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. e. David Repented of The Sin With Fasting And Supplication – vs. 16. True repentance is both confession and forsaking. David fell on his face before the Lord for the life of his child. Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. f. David Went to The House Of God And Worshipped Instead Of Getting Mad At God – vs. 20. It is certainly embarrassing to have face God's people and because of this, many will never come back to God's house. David made confession, fasted and prayed, and then went to God house and worshipped the Lord. g. David Continue to Serve The Lord – vs. 21-23. Many of God's children get completely out of both the sanctuary and service of the Lord after such failure. I know of many families that are out of church thi.s morning because they would not get something right and left never to return. h. David Used His Experience to Teach Others – vs. 24-25. Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean one? Our failures can be used by God as well as our victories. Examples of failure and restoration can be used to keep family and friends from falling into the same pitfalls. Psalms 51:12-13 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Temple Baptist Church - 11-14-2021Revelation 18:4-8 A. Verse 4. This verse is a call to the people of God who continue to be associated with the great whore to "Come out!" Separation has always been God's will for His people. Over the past few decades of compromise and the assimilation of God's people with the end-time religious system of Roman Catholicism, many biblically ignorant people, who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, have listened to the liberals instead of biblically conservative Bible believers. Those who remain true to the Bible have become the outsiders and enemies of the religious. 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? (15) And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? (16) 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. (17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, (18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. B. "It does not matter where you go to church as long as you trust Christ as your Saviour," has been around for a long time. Trusting Christ will get you to heaven but going a liberal church will make you a liberal. IT DOES MATTER WHERE YOU GO TO CHURCH because the Bible says, " Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you," which is a commandment of God, not an option of the individual. It is the responsibility of God's people to seek the Word of God, not the religion of man. 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: (20) 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. C. Though the child of God more than likely would not bow to a statue or idol, there are many who evidently do not have a biblical problem with those who do use idols. This is called "guilt by association!" Images, statues, etc. are strictly forbidden by the First Commandment found in Exodus, chapter 20. These verses are both concise (pointed) and clear (not ambiguous)! It is a commandment to be obeyed, not ignored. Exodus 20:3-5 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (4) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: (5) Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Mark 13:22-23 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. (23) But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. You may also find it of interest that both government and Hollywood exalt Catholicism while mocking all other denominations by portraying their pastors as bumbling idiots and making fun of their churches. D. Verse 5. Here we find the longsuffering of the Lord. Though the Tower of Babel did not reach up to heaven, the sinfulness of Babel's people did! God is patient and longsuffering, but there is a limit to both. We often forget that God is neither early, nor is He late; God is ALWAYS on time! 1. God was longsuffering with Sodom. Genesis 18:20-21 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; (21) I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. 2. God was longsuffering with the Amorites. Genesis 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. 3. God was longsuffering with Nineveh. Jonah 1:2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. Though longsuffering and patient, God will not forget nor forgive unrepentant sin. In a moment of time, God will uphold His judgment in righteousness. E. Verse 6. Here we find the reward of the end-time religious system doubled! There is a two-fold reason for this found in chapter 17. 1. Because of her abominations, idolatry, and spiritual fornication. The end-time religious system openly disobeys the Bible. Revelation 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 2. Because of her drunkenness with the blood of God's children. Revelation 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Again, though longsuffering and patient, God will not forget nor forgive unrepentant sin. Revelation 2:20-22 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. (21) And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. (22) Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. F. Verse 7. The Delusion of the end-time religious system. Because of her acceptance by both churches and government, in her pride, she glorifies self instead of glorifying God. In her possessions, she has lived in luxury having need of nothing. In her delusion, she has elevated herself to a position of royalty and exclusion as she is seemingly exempt from the sorrow of this present world. God says that He will give a measured response to her delusion with as much torment and sorrow as she has afflicted upon others. G. Verse 8. The judgment of God upon the end-time religious whore will come in one day! Though she now rests in false confidence, the Lord is fully able to destroy her to the ground in a moment's time and she will not escape! 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
