I SHALL SEE

 

Job 19:25-27

 

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

 

Intro – 3 times Job repeats this thought that he would “see” his Redeemer. Anytime the bible says something 3 times in a row its God’s way of saying, pay attention! Job probably lived around 1500 BC, long before Christ would come.

 

Ezekiel 14:14 and James 5:11 both refer to Job in the bible.  The OT had many reference or types to the coming Messiah and His rescue. Gen.3:15, Abel, Noah, Enoch and Abraham in Gen.22:8.

 

 

 

I Job believed in the Savior. (24-25)

 

A. He knew his Redeemer already existed.   Is.44:6, Is.59:20, Ps.19:14, Gen.17:1, Gen. 18:1

 

B. He knew He would come to earth.         Gen.17:7-8,  Later Zech. Writes Zec.14:4

 

C. Do know the Redeemer and believe He is coming back for you?   1Thes.4:16-17

 

 

 

II. Job believed in the Resurrection. (26-27)

 

A. After death, I will again see God.  IJn.3:2

 

B. He believed in a new body.  1Cor.15:35-38, 51-54.

 

 

 

III. Job trusted his Redeemer would take care of him.

 

A. By faith he trusted God for forgiveness. Job.42:6

 

B. By faith he had come to understand a very important truth. Gen.50:20, Rom.8:28

 

 

 

Con. No matter how difficult life gets, remember your Redeemer lives!

 

 

NEW LIFE

 

1Cor.5:7-8

 

listen to message

 

 

 

Intro –Paul uses the feast of Passover and Unleavened bread to explain the believer’s relationship to Christ.  When Jesus died and rose again these feast were being celebrated. By the time of Christ these 2 feasts had been merged together and were simply called the Passover. Ezk.45:21, Luke 22:1.  It is not coincidental that Jesus rode into Jerusalem as these feasts were being celebrated. As our text tells us, He would become our Passover Lamb and we would become the unleavened bread.

 

 

 

I. The Passover – Exodus 12

 

A. An unblemished, perfect lamb was slain. Ex.12:5

 

B. The blood from that lamb was put on the doorpost and mantle. Ex.12:7

 

C. The death angel would “Passover” those homes. Ex. 12:13

 

 

 

II. The Unleavened bread.

 

A. All leaven was to be cleaned out of the house. Ex.12:15

 

B. Only those who had applied the blood would be celebrating this! Ex.12:23

 

 

 

III. How does this apply to us?

 

A. Jesus is our Lamb, sacrificed to pay for our sin. Gen.22:8, Jn.1:29, 1Peter 1:19

 

B. We are made “unleavened” clean when we repent of sin.    Heb.9:22,  1John 1:9

 

C. His blood and resurrection gives us the power to live a clean life.  

 

                                                Heb.9:14,  Rev.12:11, Phil.3:10, Rom.1:4

 

D. Therefore, let’s celebrate!

 

1. We celebrate Easter because God’s word told us to. (8)  Ex.13:8

 

2. We celebrate because we have new life. Rom.6:4, 2Cor.5:17, Rom.8:11

 

 

Con. The payment for sin was complete.  The victory over sin and death was accomplished.  You need to remember that only those who have put their faith in Christ can truly celebrate His Resurrection.

 

OUR SOVEREIGN GOD

 

Listen to Message

 

March 13th, 2016

 

 

 

Intro   One of the most encouraging verses in Scripture is found in our text today. “nothing will be impossible with God.”  When God decides to do something, He does it. Three things I want you to take note of.

 

 

 

I. God always has a plan!

 

A. Before the world.  Eph.1:4, 1Pet.1:20

 

B. A Savior will come. Is. 7:14, Is. 59:20

 

C. He came at just the right time.    Rom.5:6, Gal.4:4

 

 

 

II. His Sovereign work will be accomplished

 

A. He will be great. No one has ever changed the world like He did.  Ps.96:4, Is.9:6, 61:1  BC/AD

 

B. He will be called the Son of the Most High, pointed to His equality with God. Ps 47:2, 96:7-10, 97:9, Jn.10:30, Jn.5:18, Jn.19 7

 

C. He will be given the throne of His father David. Ps.89:3-4

 

D. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever. Rev.11:17, Rev.20:4-6

 

E. His kingdom will never end.  Heb.1:8, Rev.21:1, 4-5

 

 

 

III. He seeks our complete surrender.

 

A.  She believed.  Lk 1:20, 38

 

B.  “May it be done”.  Like saying your will be done. Faith is surrendering to God’s will. Mt.6:10, Lk.14:28

Con. God will accomplish His will. The question is will you be blessed by being a part of  it

 

SAVE US

 

Matt.21:1-9

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

Intro – Hosanna is a word that comes from the Hebrew that means “save us”. As Jesus came into Jerusalem the people were crying out for Him to save them. They were looking for a Messiah who would save them from the oppression of the Roman government. They had heard of His miracles and probably thought, this is the One who will rescue us.

 

 

 

I.  The waiting man with donkey.

 

     A. Jesus knew this man was there. Prov 15:3, Ps 139:1-2, Jn.2:25

 

     B. The Lord’s people are everywhere. 1Kings 19:14, 18

 

 

 

II. The people wanted change from oppressive Roman government.

 

     A. Many today want change.

 

1. They want freedom from big government.

 

2. They are angry with politicians who make promises but never keep them.

 

     B. The change Christ offered was a much deeper one. Jn.3:7,  Acts 3:19

 

1. He wanted them to put faith in Someone far greater than any politician. Rom.10:13,

 

2. He came to change hearts and attitudes.  Rom.10:9,  2Cor.5:17

 

 

 

III. The blindness of the lost.  Lk 11:52, Mt.15:14, 2Cor.4:4

 

     A. They could not see the problem was their own sin. Jn.12:35-37

 

1. Many today want change but see no need to repent, they  refuse Christ. Jn.1:11

 

2. Without repentance our government will not get better.  Luke 19:41-44

 

     B. Changed lives would mean a changed government. 2Chron.7:14

 

 

Con -  today many are crying out to the politicians “save us” but do not understand that salvation comes from the Lord and repentance is the vehicle that brings it. The solution is not political but spiritual.

 

 

 

GRACE VS WORKS

 

Gal. 4:21-31

 

Listen to Message

 

 

 

Intro – Judaizers were trying to teach the new Christians that they were not really Christians if they did not keep the law.

 

Our salvation does not come through keeping the law and is not maintained by keeping the law. We are free from the law and answer only to the Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

I. Why would anyone want to go back to the old way?

 

A. Lack of faith.                      Rom.4:4-5,  Rom.4:21-22

 

B. The need to do something. Rom.11:6, Heb.11:6

 

 

 

II. Paul uses an historical account to explain law and gospel. Jn.1:17

 

A. Hagar & Ishmael = the law of the old covenant. (24-25)

 

1.  Ishmael = (man’s idea) trying to work its way to salvation.  Gen.16:1-2, Jn.8:33

 

2.  Salvation by works, like the Pharisees?      Matt.23:27, 33, Rom.2:12

 

B. Sarah & Isaac = Grace, God’s promise to us.          Jn.1:12,   Rom.3:28

 

1. Isaac = (God’s idea) faith, set free from sin to freely serve Christ.   Rom.8:14, Gal.5:18, Rom.6:22-23

 

2. The better way.        Heb. 7:18-22,  Heb.12:22-24

 

 

 

III. Which kind of person are you?

 

A. If you place yourself under the law you will be judged by it.     Gal.3:2-3, 10

 

B. Salvation by grace, like all believers, led by the Spirit?  Jn.14:26, Jn.15:26, Jn.16:13

 

 

 

Con. – The life of a Christian is one which is in tune with the will of the Holy Spirit. Rom.8:16, Matt.5:27-28.

 

He allows the HS to guide him according to the word of God. The result of grace not the means of grace is that we follow the Lord’s commands. Jn.14:15.
