Folly, Truth, and Glory of Baptism (1)

12/1/19 AM

Bible baptism seems foolish to the flesh and the world, but it is the truth of God.

False religions corrupt baptism to be more palatable for the flesh, especially the RCC. But like Naaman and other true believers, they are glad to be fools to obey God and glorify Jesus Christ. The Bible clearly condemns all false ideas about baptism to justify Baptists.





Folly, Truth, and Glory of Baptism (2)

12/1/19 PM

Baptism is a profound ordinance with great symbolism for crucial commitment to God.

Baptism was done quickly in the Bible, but it was meaningful. John baptized Jesus, though He did not need it, to fulfill all righteousness. It is how a person can answer God for saving them. It is the symbol of repentance for a new lifestyle and hope of a future resurrection.





Isaiah (Chap 34)

11/24/19 AM

King Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Edom and other area enemies of His people in Judah.

God loved Jacob and hated Esau before they were born (Rom 9:10-16). Esau and his sons were cruel many times. Judah begged God to remember that cruelty (Ps 137:7). He did! He destroyed Edom until there were none left and their land was a wild, worthless wilderness.





Isaiah (Chap 35)

11/24/19 PM

God regathered His own people in mercy and blessed them all the way to Messiah.

Opposite how He hated the Edomites (Is 34), God loved the Jews and blessed them (Mal 1:1-5). He saved them from Babylon and helped them back in Judah. His blessings all pointed to Messiah His Son and the gospel kingdom He would set up on earth for them.





Thanksgiving Dinner & Service

11/20/19 PM

After some slides to establish the Biblical basis, men and boys gave thanks to God.

Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful holiday that Christians can celebrate with zeal. It is to identify the blessings of God on America as a nation. For this year, the focus was on the abundance of all things and also the military history and strength of America. Glory to God!





Isaiah (Chap 32)

11/17/19 AM

God blessed Hezekiah to lead a great revival before and after the Assyrian invasion.

Isaiah warned the careless women of Judah that pursued ease instead of spiritual religion. He foretold great reformation of state, church, character, and charity in Judah. God poured out His Spirit on the afflicted Jews and blessed them with victory, peace, and prosperity.





Isaiah (Chap 33)

11/17/19 PM

A collage of angles and aspects of God saving and reviving Judah from Assyria.

The transitions are dramatic and fast. See the ruin of Sennacherib and victory and revival of Judah in all its glory by a collection of short descriptions. God mocked and destroyed this blasphemer, and He wants you to know about it and acknowledge it. A chapter for praise!

Isaiah 49:13-17 has wonderful comfort by the love of God for His people. God Jehovah is a great and terrible God, a man of war! But He compared His love to the love of a mother for a nursing infant. The comparison is great, but there are 50+ more angles of His love as well.

Messiah the Prince Expanded (#1)

11/3/19 AM

Daniel 9:24-27 has precious promises of Jesus our Savior and what He would do.

These four verses are the densest passage in the Bible for broad, detailed, timed gospel truth. It is also the place where heretics invent their foolish ideas about the future. The people of God should know this prophecy like their fathers in the faith. It is all about Christ!

Isaiah (Chap 30)

10/27/19 AM

Judah evilly sought help from Egypt, but God saved and then revived them anyway.

Sin breeds sin, and Sennacherib of Assyria terrified the Jews. Instead of repenting and trusting God for deliverance, they paid money to Egypt, offending God further. Assyria easily defeated Egypt to the shame of Judah. God then killed the 185,000 and caused a revival.





Isaiah (Chap 31)

10/27/19 PM

Judah evilly sought help from Egypt, but God saved and then revived them anyway.

Isaiah (Chap 28)

10/20/19 AM

Israel and Judah to be judged, though differently, for their great wickedness.

Israel (ten tribes) thought they were special, but God mocked them before destroying them. He said He would be the glory of Judah. They rejected His prophets, so He purposed to judge them severely. He illustrated His perfect chastening by comparing it to wise farmers.





Isaiah (Chap 29)

10/20/19 PM

God would judge Judah with war and also with blindness before great revival.

God sent Sennacherib to punish the Jews, but He saved them in the end by His power. He also made them blind with confusion for their hypocrisy, like He has done to most today. He did promise a great revival after crushing the Assyrians, which occurred under Hezekiah.





How Did You Hear?

10/16/19 PM

You would not know Jesus Christ or truth without some person introducing you to it.

This is not about preachers and their duty to preach the word. This is for Christians and the duty to share the gospel to those they love or when they have an opening to present truth. It should be a high pleasure for the glory of God and profit of souls, but most do not do it.





Isaiah (Chap 26)

10/13/19 AM

A song of celebration from several angles of the Jews rescue from hated Babylon.

The O.T. church sang about JEHOVAH saving them from 70 years of chastening in Babylon. Here we learn the character of the righteous, how God exalts His people over others, and how He answers prayer. He promised to raise the dry bones of Judah from death and dust.





Isaiah (Chap 27)

10/13/19 PM

God killed Leviathan (Babylon) to bring His vineyard home to replant them for fruit.

More singing as Jews rejoiced in God giving them their vineyard back in Judah. Wonderful verses of care and love for the O.T. church. Wonderful verses explaining how chastening of Judah was different to destroying Babylon. He would gather all His people one by one.





Isaiah (Chap 24)

10/6/19 AM

God judged Judah by Babylon, saving only a remnant, but then glorified it greatly.

Isaiah 24 is very obscure until its context is set by examining its content and the next three chapters related to it. God had to punish Judah for their sins, and He used the king of Babylon, but He also delivered them from Babylon and then gave them greater glory than before.
