� Temple Baptist Church - 9-10-2023Romans 8:1-17� Introduction:A.� As far as I am concerned,� the Apostle Paul was possibly the greatest Christian in the early years of the church.� � 1.� From the beginning of his walk with God� on the Damacus Road until his death some 32 or so years later, Paul never� faltered, failed, or fell from his steadfastness!� 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.� 2.� As with the other men of God� that we have looked at who chose to walk with God , there had to be one driving force that made Paul a man who walked with God.� � 3.� I believe that force was the precious Holy Spirit of God.� � 4.� I used the word force because of His power� but the Holy Spirit is a Person and the third part of the Godhead or Trinity.� B.� Again, Paul was not a perfect Christian, just a good one!� We often equate spirituality with perfection and failure with carnality.� � God is not looking for Perfect Christians, just useable ones!� C.� Though other epistles make mention of the blessed Holy Spirit,� the Pauline Epistles introduce the believer to the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost and His work.� � The Apostle Paul was truly a Spirit filled man!� D.� The Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts� are transitional in nature with both passing and permanent gifts given for the edification of the saints and the work of the ministry.� E.� The greatest of all gifts given� is the blessed, precious Holy Ghost!� Almighty God living in the believer!� 1. He teaches -� John 14:26� But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.� 2. He guides -� Romans 8:14� For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.� 3. He commissions -� Acts 13:4� So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.� 4. He commands men -� Acts 8:29� Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.5. He restrains -� Acts 16:6� Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,� 6. He intercedes -� Romans 8:26� Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.� 7. He speaks -� John 15:26� But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:F.� There is a lot of misinformation� in religious circles about the person and work of the Holy Ghost. Some religious denominations practice unscriptural works and blame the Holy Ghost for them.� The scripture cannot be violated, and the Spirit of God gave the scripture.� 2 Peter 1:21� For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.� G.� To walk with God, one must walk in God which is walking in the Holy Spirit.� Paul was such a man.� The Bible does not specifically say that Paul walked in the Spirit, but I believe that his epistles testify to it. What is walking in the Spirit?� 1.� Walking with God in the Spirit requires a spiritual birth.� John 3:5-8� Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and� of� the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.� (6)� That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.� (7)� Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.� (8)� The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.� a.� The New Birth and the Word of God.� Romans 10:14-17� How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?� (15)� And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!� (16)� But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?� (17)� So then faith� cometh� by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.� b.� The New Birth and the Spirit of God.� 1 Corinthians 6:11� And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.� 2.� � Walking with God in the Spirit requires being� conscious of His Presence.� Galatians 5:16-17� This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.� (17)� For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.� � (Realizing the constant battle that we have with our old sinful flesh and knowing the presence of the blessed Holy Spirit: our Comforter, Friend, and Guide.)� a. Consciousness of God is not based upon Emotions.� � I do not necessarily feel God in me or with me.� Emotions can leave one fearful and drained because we cannot see God's presence.� b. Consciousness of God is not based upon Circumstances.� There are times when I do not think that things are right nor do I like where I am in life.� Circumstances can leave one confused and discouraged because we cannot see God working in the background.� c. Consciousness of God relies completely upon His Promises.� He said that He would be there with me and for me.� Never doubt in the dark what God said in the light!� d.� Walking in the Spirit involves knowing� that He is with me; He sees me; He protects me; and He cares for me.� All the time!� 3.� Walking with God in the Spirit requires being filled with the Spirit.� � Ephesians 5:18-21� And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;� (19)� Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;� (20)� Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;� (21)� Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.� � (The filling of the Holy Ghost is not evidenced by the modern day “tongues” but by a sweetness of singing and making melody in our hearts coupled with thankfulness.)� a.� Sensitive to the Spirit.� � Understanding the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is imperative.� � b.� Obedient to the Spirit.� � Allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us throughout the day.� c.� Not Grieving the Spirit.� � Heeding the reproof of the Holy Spirit when we commit sin.� 4.� Walking with God in the Spirit is evidencing the fruit of the Spirit.� Galatians 5:22-25� But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,� (23)� Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.� (24)� And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.� (25)� If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.� � (True Biblical Christianity is always evidenced with the inward, outward, and upward fruit of the Spirit.� You cannot be Spirit filled without all 9 aspects of the fruit.)� 5.� Walking with God in the Spirit is evidenced by living for God instead of living for the world.� � Romans 12:1-2� � I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,� which is� your reasonable service.� � 2� And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what� is� that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.� a. Consecration for God is Realization that I belong to God.� � We have been bought and paid for by the blood of Christ.� We are not our own but we are His.� b. Consecration for God is Presentation of my body to God.� � Separation is simply giving to God what He has already paid for: our lives!� We owe all that we have or ever will have to Him.� c. Consecration for God is Glorification of God –� 1� Corinthians 6:19-20� What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost� which is� in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?� � 20� For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.� d.� Consecration is dying to self and living for the glory of God -� Luke 9:23� � And he said to� them� all, If any� man� will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.� 6.� Walking In The Spirit Involves Compliance To God -� 1 John 5:3� For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.� a. Compliance to the Holy Spirit's Direction -� John 16:13� Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear,� that� shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.� b. Compliance to the Holy Scripture's Doctrine -� John 8:31-32� � Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word,� then� are ye my disciples indeed;� 32� And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.� Conclusion:� Walk in the Spirit and deny the flesh.� Walk in the flesh and deny the Spirit.� Our Lord said that we are either for Him or against Him with no room for middle ground.
Temple Baptist Church - 8-30-2023John 10:30� Introduction:� A. One of the most effective of Satan's devices is division and confusion. Our Lord spoke of the destruction of a house divided against itself and it was recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.� Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:� I find it of interest that there was no mention of this device of division in John's Gospel as that Book of the Bible expresses the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. THERE IS NO DIVISION IN GOD!� B. In our context, Jesus spoke exhaustively about who He was and His relation ship with the believers (sheep) and the Father in verse 30. In verse 31, they took up stones once again to kill our Lord because of His claim to be the Son of God and oneness with God the Father. “I and the Father are one!”� John 10:31-33 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. (32) Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? (33) The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.� C. As 21st� Century believers, we face the same problem of division. “Divide and Conquer” is a saying that has been used over the years.� 1. There is a movement within the Pentecostal movement that are referred to themselves as “Jesus Only.” They deny God the Father and disregard the Holy Spirit in both their Theology and baptism. The are baptized in the name of Jesus while the Bible commands us to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost!� Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:� 2. During the Transition Period, as God was moving the Jew from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant, Peter command that these New Testament Jews be baptized in the name of “Jesus” because of their national rejection and their crucifixion of the Messiah. It was part of their confession of faith.� 3. There are both preachers and people on the pews of Baptist churches who also separate and divide the Trinity.� a) There are those who ignorantly claim that God either allowed to do something or gave them something that is against the truth found in the Bible. Jesus is the Word, equated with the Scriptures, and the Scriptures cannot be broken.� b) God the Father, God the Son, or God the Holy Spirit will never violate the Word of God! The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth as only the truth will make us free.� 4. The Bible teaches Monotheism, that there is one God—not many, and Trinitarianism, that God manifests Himself in three distinct person who are coeternal, coequal, and indivisibly united.� 5. I often use a Theological statement that goes like this. “God is one God, manifesting Himself in three Persons, God the Father—God the Son—and God the Holy Spirit. These Three are all co-equal in all power and attributes.”� 6. I will probably spend several services one the subject “The Unity of God.”� D. In our text for tonight, we find the words “I and the Father are One”.� 1. For this cause, the Jews took up stones once again because Jesus equated Himself with God the Father.� 2. Their rejection of Christ, their spiritual blindness, and their hatred concerning the doctrinal truth of the Trinity, of the Unity and Oneness of God is expressed here in verse 31.� E. Now, let us see what the Bible says about the Unity of God.� 1. The Unity of God in Creation.� a. We understand that Jesus Christ, Jehovah God in the Old Testament, was the Creator of all things.� John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.� John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.� Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:� Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: (16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.� b.� “In the beginning God” – The name for God is “Elohim,” which is a plural word.� Though Jesus Christ alone was the Creator of all things, we find that the Trinity was together in full agreement.� Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.� c.� After the Creation was finished, God made Adam of the dust of the earth, so now we find the plural word “us” found. Not let Us create but lets us make! Make out� of what was already created.� Genesis 1:26 And God said,� Let us� make man in� our� image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.� The word “God” used here is Elohim, the plural name of God with the personal pronouns also being plural: “us” and “our”.� Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:� Here, we find a compound name of God: LORD (Jehovah) and God (Elohim) used for the first time. LORD or Jehovah was Jesus Christ and God was the unity of the Godhead together. “LORD God” is used 545 times in the Bible expressing the complete oneness and unity of the Godhead or Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.� 2. The Unity of God in Salvation.� a. Salvation is an act of God! I must continue to drive this theological “stake” in the ground so as to anchor our salvation in a finished work called the gospel. Salvation is not something that we do, it is something that God does. It is a free gift to the repentant, believing sinner.� Romans 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (17) For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.� Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.� Romans 10:1-4 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. (2) For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. (3) For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. (4) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.� Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,� Give of your best to the Master in service but personal righteous for salvation is a rejection of the grace of God.� b. Biblical salvation requires the unity of God or Trinity as each has a particular work therein.� c. The necessity of the Father in salvation.� 1) The Father gave His Son. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.� Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.� 2) The Father draws the Sinner. John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.� 3) The Father gives the sinner who comes to the Son. John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.� John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.� It was the will of the Father that all men be saved, therefore, in God's amazing love for the world, He gave His only begotten Son.� God the Father also gave the world, every individual who ever lived, to His Son to be saved. As it was the Father's will that all men be saved, it was also the Son's will that all men be saved.� 1 Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.� Will all men be saved because it is God's will? No! They must exercise personal faith in the Gospel. A notable example are the Apostles, all appointed by Christ, but one rejected and was never saved.� Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.� John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.� This is not Calvinism because each of these individuals have the ability to come to the Son in salvation. He gave the Saviour to the world and the world to the Saviour.� 4) The Father was in Christ in reconciliation. 2� Corinthians 5:19-20 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (20) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.� 5) The Father raised the Son from the dead in the Gospel.� Romans 10:9 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.� d. The necessity of the Son of God in salvation.� 1) Jesus, the ONLY name in which we find salvation. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.� Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.� 2) Jesus, the ONLY way to the Father. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.� John 3:35-36 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. (36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.� 3) Jesus, the ONLY Door to the “sheepfold,” the Body of Christ.� John 10:7-9 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. (8) All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. (9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.� 4) Jesus' sacrifice—death, burial, and resurrection—gave us a finished work in salvation.� a) His Condensation. Philippians 2:7-8 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: (8) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.� b) His Consecration. Isaiah 50:6-7 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. (7) For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.� c) His Completion. Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.� John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.� John 10:15-18 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. (16) And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. (17) Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. (18) No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.� e. The necessity of the Holy Spirit in salvation. At this point, I do not want to do a study in Pneumatology but do feel like we need to know just Who He is and what He does.� 1) Holy Spirit vs. Holy Ghost.� a) The King James Bible is the only “bible” that uses the words “Holy Ghost.” All others translate “Holy Ghost” as “Holy Spirit.” Though both are translated from the same underlying Greek word, translating them the same way does an injustice to the Word of God. Here is the reason for the differences between “Spirit” and Ghost.”� b) Holy Spirit speaks of His Person. The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, coequal and consubstantial with both the Father and the Son. A supernatural Person who is the gift of the Father to mankind in general and the believer specifically.� c) The Holy Ghost speaks of His activity or Agency or His work along with being the Author of the written Word of God. The Holy Ghost is the Voice and Breath of Almighty God in this world by which mankind is convicted of sin, the Lord Jesus Christ is glorified, and the believer is transformed into the image of God. God's Breath that “bloweth where it listeth”, creating faith through the Word of God.� d) Abstract yet concrete! A Voice, a Person that cannot be seen but can be known, heard, felt, and communicated with. I have known Baptist so-called preachers who said that the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit was not an actual Person but rather an influence or the conscience of man. The Holy Spirit is more than an influence, He is a Person. A man's conscience can be a good one or a bad one and depends upon the spirituality or lack thereof of the owner of the conscience. My conscience and yours may or may not be the same.� e) The King James Bible is translated right and does not need to be upgraded to an everchanging English language. It is a dead language that is no longer spoken and therefore an unchanging language. God says what He means and means what He says. He needs no help!� f) Now back to the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation.� 2)� The Holy Ghost gave Mary the Conception.� Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.� 3) The Holy Ghost convicts the Sinner. John 16:7-8 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. (8) And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:� 4) The Holy Ghost Baptizes the Saint.� At the moment of salvation, the Holy Spirit baptizes the� believer into the Body of Christ, the Church.� Romans 6:3-4 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? (4) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.� 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.� 5)� The Holy Spirit indwells the Saint.� 1 Thessalonians 4:8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.� 6) The Holy Ghost Empowers the Saint. 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 in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.� 7) The Holy Ghost Comforts the Saint. John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;� 8) The Holy Ghost Teaches the Saint. John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.� 3. The Unity of God in Security.� 1 John 5:7� For there are three that bear record (witness or give testimony) in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and� these three are one.� You cannot separate God in unity; thus our eternal security must be anchored in all three Persons of the Godhead, God the Father—God the Son—God the Holy Ghost.� Ecclesiastes 4:12� And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.� Romans 8:34-39� Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. (35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (36) As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. (37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (38) For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, (39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
