ISRAEL & THE CHURCH

Romans 11:1-12

October 29th 2017

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

Intro – Some people think that the “church” has replaced Israel when it comes to the promises God has made in His word. Romans 11 makes it clear that this is not so. Many promises apply to both the church and Israel but there are some which apply to only Israel. Understanding this truth is vital to our spiritual wellbeing. Rom.11:19-21

 

I. He has not rejected them completely. (1-2)

A. Paul is proof of this. Phil.3:5, 1Tim.1:16

B. Jewish people today are saved by faith in Christ. Gal.3:2, Jn.14:6, Heb.11:6

C. You also have not been rejected completely. Rom.5:8, Jn.6:44, 1Pet.2:9

D. Continued rejection will lead to eternal loss. Prov. 29:1

 

II.   God always has a remnant. (3-10)

A. There will always be believing Jews. Rom.9:27-28

B. The remnant today is part of the believing church. Rom.10:12, Gal.3:28

C. There are always other believers around you. (vs 4) Dan.3:25

 

III. Their hardened hearts are only temporary. (11-12) Jer.33:24-26, Zech.2:10, Joel 2:28

A. Only until the church age is complete. Rom.11:25, Lk.21:24

B. In the last days the Jewish people will be a witness to the world for Christ. Jer.30:3,7, Rev.7:3-4, 9-14

 

Con. God’s promises still hold true today.  Gen.12:3

 

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE

Jn.11:25-27

October 1st 2017

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

Intro – to be saved you must believe. However, believing is more than knowing about Jesus, it’s trusting and trusting means you act on what He says.

 

I. Martha believed He is Who He said He was. (27)

A. Christ = Messiah, Savior. Luke 2:11

B. Son of God = true God, Col.2:9

C. God incarnate = born into this world, Matt.1:23, 1Jn.4:2

 

II. Believing is more than knowledge.

A. Many believe things about Jesus. James 2:19

B. Christians believe in Him. 

 

III. To believe in Him is to trust Him.

A. To trust is to respond to His offer of Salvation.

B. To trust is to take action, to “put on Christ”.

1. You change behavior – repent – Rom.13:11-14

2. You confess and profess – Gal.3:27

3. You put into action a life committed to obeying Christ. Eph.4:24, Col.3:10, 2Cor.5:15

 

Con. Confess – 1Jn.1:9, Call – Romans 10:13, - Profess – Rom.10:9.
       Saving faith is revealed by a trusting response to Christ’s offer of salvation.

 

 

OLD VS NEW

Mark 2:18-28

October 8th 2017

Listen to Message

 

 

Intro – The bible is filled with God ordained changes. Sometimes people fail to catch the change and they continue in the old ways. Jesus is explaining that to people in our text today. Just like the Pharisees of Christ’s day there are those today who want to keep the old. I have spoken before about Hebrew Roots or Messianic Christians. The more I study them the more concern I have.

 

I. When God changes something we need to follow those changes. (18-20)

A. The Bridegroom has come! Is.61:10

B. The church, made up of believers, is the bride of Christ. Rev.19:7, Eph.5:23,32 Acts 20:28

C. We now operate by the HS under the law Jesus gave to the church. Matt.16:18, Mt.18:17, Jn.16:13

D. This was a major change from the old covenant to the new. Jer.31:31-33, Lk.22:20, Heb.8:13

 

II. Jesus warns against trying to mix the two covenants. (21-22)

A. He knew this would be an issue in the early church. Matt.5:17

B. The Pharisees always accused Jesus of breaking the law. (24)

C. The truth was He fulfilled it perfectly so we could be free from it. Rom.7:6, Col.2:14

 

III. We live under the new covenant. 2Cor.3:6-17

A. Not the old one written by God on stone given by Moses. 2Cor.3:10

B. Those who follow the old are just blinded. 2Cor.3:14-16

C. Jesus has given us a new, higher, better way. 2Cor.3:6, James 1:25, 2:12, Mt.7:12

D. And the power to live that sanctified life. Acts 1:8, Col.1:28-29

 

Con. – Don’t be like the Pharisees of old who tried to mix the law with the Bridegrooms grace.

Sept. 24th 2017

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

A. Nothing can take you from God. Heb.13:5

1. It is clear that no one or nothing can separate us from Christ. 38-39    2Cor.5:8

2. However, we can sever our relationship with Him. Gal.5:4, Heb.3:12, 6, 14

3. It’s all about faith, God will keep you, will you keep Him? 1Jn.1:7, Jn.19:30

B. We will be victorious.-37    Rev.12:11, Phil 4:13
