A GOD OF SIGNS

 

Luke 21:25-36

 

Dec.9th, 2018

 

 

 

Intro – In the bible God almost always gave people signs to look for when some major event was to take place.

 

Many times as an act of His grace to give people a chance to repent.

 

 

 

I. Some Old Testament examples.

 

A. Noah – ark was in the works for 75-100 years before the flood came. Gen.5:32, Gen.7:6

 

B. Sodom & Gomorrah – Angels sent to warn people. Gen.19:1

 

C. Christ coming into this world.

 

1. Descendent of Judah and Jessie. Gen.49:10, Is.11:1

 

2. In the lineage of King David. Ps.132:11, 2Sam.7:12-13

 

3. Born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2

 

4. Born of a virgin. Is.7:14

 

5. God in human form. Is.9:6, Mt.1:23

 

D. Christ’s death on the cross and resurrection. Is.53:5, Is.53:12,  Ps.16:10, Mt.12:40

 

 

 

II. The problem is people didn’t listen to His word.

 

A. So they drowned in the flood, burned in Sodom, and missed the birth of the Messiah.

 

B. They ended up rejecting the Savior. Matt.21:42

 

1. Those who read the Scriptures were ready. Luke 2:25, 34, 38

 

2. Others ignored the signs and were lost. Mt.23:37-38

 

 

 

III. Jesus has again given us signs of a great event that will happen.

 

A. His return for the believers. 1Thess.4:13-18

 

B. He has given many signs. Matt.24

 

C. Like Simeon and Anna some see the signs and wait for Christ. (28, 34-36)

 

D. Others ignore or just don’t believe and like the flood or Sodom they will perish. Matt.11:23-24

 

 

Con. – What about you? Are you listening to God’s word? So many missed His birth because they neglected to see the signs. Don’t be among those who miss the signs of His second coming. He is coming for those who are looking for Him. Heb.9:28

 

WAKE UP

 

Romans 13:11-14

 

December 2nd 2018

 

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

 

Intro – To wake up means you become aware of your surroundings again. You see things as they really are.

 

 

 

I. Do you know the time?

 

A. The scriptures give us many. Anti-Jewish, anti-Christian sentiment. Matt.24:9

 

B. Unbelievers don’t know the time and thus do not repent. 2Pet.3:3-4

 

C. Like the dawn, things become visible before the sun actually has risen.  Mt.16:2-3

 

 

 

II. As believers you know the Lord’s return is near.

 

A. So separate yourself from deeds of darkness. Lk.21:34-36,

 

B. So be a light and live like a Christian. Eph.5:11, 1Pet.4:3-4

 

 

 

III. Don’t give the devil a chance. Eph.6:13

 

A. Let Jesus completely control your life. Gal.2:20

 

B. Make no provision for sin. 1Cor.10:12-13

 

 

Con. – Being awake means knowing who the enemy is (Satan) and taking steps to resist him.

Heb.4:9-13

 

Nov. 25th 2018

THE RESISTANCE

 

Luke 20:27-40

 

Nov. 11th 2018

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

Intro – The Sadducees were a religious-political group who resisted the ministry and teachings of Jesus. Along with the Pharisees they made up the Sanhedrin which was the group who ran the temple during the time of Christ. They resisted Jesus because the truth He brought threatened their hold on power among the Jews.

 

 

 

I. They tested Jesus.  (27-33)

 

A. They tried to trick Him. (23)

 

B. They mocked the Lord’s teaching on the resurrection. (27)

 

C.  There are two kinds of testing done in the Bible.

 

1. One is evil and based on resisting God and unbelief. Deut.6:16, Ps.78:17-18, Mt.4:7

 

2. The other is good and based on faith and doing God’s will.  Is.7:10-13, Mal.3:10, Judges 6:39, 1Jn.4:1

 

 

 

II. In heaven things will be different.  (34-36)

 

A. No marriage in heaven.

 

B. We will be spiritual beings who live forever. Ecc.12:7, Acts 7:59, Zech.12:1, Gen. 1:26, Gen.2:7, 2Cor.5:6-8

 

C.  Our bodies will be different than they are now.  1Cor.15:50-52

 

 

 

III. Jesus uses scripture to prove the resurrection. (37-40)

 

A. When Satan tempted Jesus He used scripture.  Matt.4:7, 9

 

B. When Sadducees tested Jesus He used scripture. Ex.3:6, Heb.11:19, Dan.12:2

 

C.  Scripture is what we should use to resist the devil. James 4:7, 1Pet.5:8-9

 

 

 

Con. The Sadducees said there was no life after death but Jesus taught that there was. Luke 12:5. The question is where will you spend eternity? In heaven or hell?
