Are You Anointed By God ? – Part 2

January 17, 2020

      How Are Christians Anointed ?   This morning I want to finish my talk on the subject of anointing.  Last week I talked about the meanings of the word “anoint”, or “anointed”.   Do you remember what those meanings are?   “Anointed” means to be chosen by God, and it means to be accepted by God, and it means to be appointed by God, and to be…

The Price Of Redemption

December 14, 2019

    What is Redemption ?   I’d like to begin by sharing a few verses from  Psalm 49.   First,  verses 5 thru 7;  “Wherefore should I fear, in the days of evil, when iniquity at my heels, compasseth me about?   (when evil is all around me)  They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches, none of THEM can by any…

God’s Everlasting Covenants – Part 3, God’s Salvation

December 7, 2019

      God’s Covenants and God’s Salvation   Today I want to continue our study about God’s covenants.  And I want to show you how God’s covenants, are intertwined, with God’s eternal “purpose”, which is the salvation of man’s soul.  Often times, we refer to this “eternal purpose”, as God’s “plan of salvation”.   But in  Ephesians 3, verse 11,  God calls it His “purpose”.  Here’s what it says…

Let Not Many Be Teachers

November 30, 2019

    James Chapter 3, Verse 1   Verse 1, of  James Chapter 3,  says;  “Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing, that we will receive greater, judgment.”    A “teacher” in that verse, refers to someone who teaches God’s word.  And so it refers to..  someone who is “equipped” and “qualified”, to teach others, about God’s will, and about God’s plan of salvation, and about our…

Jesus.. The Christ

November 28, 2019

    I Believe that Jesus is the Christ !    I believe that Jesus is the Christ, for just one reason.  And that one reason is, the bible.  I believe it, because of everything that’s written in the bible.  The prophecies, the fulfillment of those prophecies, the miracles, the testimonies;  Like this testimony from the apostle John, in  1 John 1, verse 1, and verse 3;   “That which…

Knowledge, Rational Thinking, & Understanding

November 23, 2019

      Three Accounts of the Lord’s Supper   Mathew, Mark, and Luke, all give an account of the evening when Jesus gave His instructions about the Lord’s supper.  But they don’t all give exactly the same account.  And that’s where the problem begins.  People then claim that the bible contradicts itself, and therefore cannot be trusted.  How can the bible be the word of God, if it can’t…

For You Are Not Under Law, But Under Grace

November 17, 2019

    Romans 6, Verse 14   A verse that causes some confusion, is  Romans 6:14,  which says;  “For sin shall not have dominion over you;  For you are not under law, but under grace.”  Obviously “law” and “grace” are being contrasted here;  But there are two specific things, concerning “law” and “grace”, which are being addressed, and we need to understand what those two things are.   The two…

Making Bible Study Fun

November 7, 2019

        Do You Think Bible Study Should Be Fun?     Here’s a question for you;  Do you think that bible study should be fun?  I do.  When we try to teach the bible to little children, it’s pretty much accepted, that you’ve got to find a way to make it fun for them.  Otherwise, they wouldn’t be interested, right?  Bible study would be completely boring for…

Unto This They Were Appointed

October 12, 2019

    We Are All Appointed For Something   1 Peter 2, verse 8  says that for some people, Jesus Christ has become “a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.  for they stumble at the word, being disobedient;  Wherein also they were appointed.” We are all appointed by God, for something.  We’re all “called” for a specific purpose.  But I’m not talking about being “called” by God, to…

How Dare You ! A Gospel Sermon – Part 1

September 29, 2019

    How Dare You Contradict God !   Have you ever heard someone say these words..  “How dare you!”  Why would someone say that?  Would it be because you questioned their truthfulness?  Would it be because you opposed their authority?  Would it be because someone openly defied what you had told them? Imagine this;  Imagine you have a child, who comes home from school, and asks if they can…

    Malachi 1:6-8, and 13-14   God wants certain things from us.  A few weeks ago I talked about the fact that God wants our patience, and God wants our loyalty.  But here’s two more things that God wants;  He wants our best, and He wants what’s first.

The Works Of The Word Of God

First, the Word of God has created life, as we know it.   Second, the Word of God creates faith in God the creator.  Third, the Word of God became the sacrifice for the sins of the world. …

A Comprehensive Study Of The Holy Spirit Of God – Part 4

May 11, 2019

      Receiving the Holy Spirit   This part of our study of the Holy Spirit, deals with receiving the Holy Spirit.  To begin with, we need to understand that receiving the Holy Spirit, is not the same thing as receiving “the gift” of the Holy Spirit.  Receiving “the gift” of the Holy Spirit is spoken of in  Acts 2:38.  In that verse, the “gift” being spoken of is…
