David’s attitude of deliberate holiness is impressive and something we should imitate. He is purposeful in his pursuit of holiness when he says in Psalm 119, “I promise to keep your words.”
In Ephesians 4, Paul calls us to learn of Jesus Christ and to be taught how to speak through beholding Him.
Faithfulness and loyalty to Christ is a vitally important virtue in the Christian life that must not be treated lightly. In our lost world unfaithfulness is the norm. Yet on Judgment Day all men will long to bear the label of “faithful”. In Matthew 25 Jesus shows a picture of […]
Many of you are familiar with Abraham kuyper’s quote: There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry “Mine!” It is His.
This sermon follows our Lord’s teaching on His Second Coming from Luke 17. Our Lord is very clear that His coming is going to be public, spectacular…
Once the writer John gets us to where we have assurance, he then doesn’t have us sit there with our assurance but sends us to the battlefield. We who have assurance are to go to war for Christ in the spiritual realm. The more certain you are that all is […]
The Bible teaches us that every single promise in the Old Testament that applied to a Jew also applies to us who are in Jesus Christ. The greatest reality about Israel is that Jesus Christ is the true Israel and we only become such by faith in Him.
When we study eschatology we must not first launch out into the complex “calculus” of Daniel, Ezekiel, and Revelation. We must first consider some basic apostolic “math” and view the really simple formula of how Paul the apostle views this subject of the ages. With that said, let us go […]
Why preach a series on eschatology? First, because Dispensational Premillennialism commandeers many of the promises that belong to the church. Secondly, the church’s urgency is dulled by this eschatology. Thirdly, that system commandeers one of our basic Biblical interpretation methods. Fourthly, the church’s missionary hope is commandeered. Lastly, that system […]
1 John 5:10 says, “Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself.” – John clearly teaches us that God’s testimony is internalized. This means it is no longer just an external fact to us, but it is something that finds a place within us.
