The Problem of Evil (2)

4/17/19 PM

Atheists attack God and Christianity and use evil in the world as their argument.

The world is full of evil, but God rules on high. He gave us a perfect world; we chose lies and death over truth and life. Man himself is the active and direct cause of evil. God is holy and just and rules all evil for His glory, though few understand it. This is a review of 4/15/2015.





The Only Right Worldview (1)

4/14/19 AM

Bible Christians have a particular, exclusive worldview - sermon here is introduction.

Your worldview is how you view the world - how you see life - especially in big matters of where you came from, for what purpose, how you should live, and what is your future. All have a worldview, good or bad, and it sets their beliefs, actions, responses, worship.





The Only Right Worldview (2)

4/14/19 PM

The perfect worldview starts with existence of God and giving us truth in the Bible.

God is ... first axiom of the perfect worldview. Creation proves it. All men clearly see and understood it. Altering this first axiom ruins a worldview. God gave scripture ... the second axiom of the perfect worldview. The Bible is supernatural unlike any other holy book.





Imputation by Two Adams

4/7/19 AM

Romans 5:12-21 for the profound effects of Adam in Eden and Jesus on the cross.

Everything on earth is corrupted by Adam and his sin. Your worldview is very wrong, if you do not include Adam. Your children must learn it. Disease, divorce, dysfunction, and death are all his fault. But Jesus Christ has destroyed all his evil effects and given much more to His elect.





Love of Souls in Southeast Asia

4/7/19 PM

Pastor Darren from Southeast Asia told of his efforts there among the people.

We Americans are spoiled and pampered with only one language to learn and total freedom of religion. But other places in the world are not so. Christianity has made relatively small breaches in the national religions. Let us pray for God to bless labors to open more breaches.





Love of God in Salvation & Atonement

3/31/19 AM

Romans 5:6-14 as Paul built his case for the great love of God in Christ for sinners.

A gift of God now is the Spirit to declare within our hearts how much God loves us (5:5). How does God love us? How much does God love us? Paul answered in Romans 5:6-11. Paul also explained how Adam destroyed our relationship with God and brought sin and death to all men.





They Sought to Speak in Tongues

3/31/19 PM

Pastor Darren from Southeast Asia taught against the error of Charismatic tongues.

If men reject the truth God has revealed, then He can and will blind them and send them strong delusion. Charismatics have chosen to reject scripture to pursue experiences instead, especially tongues, so God has confused them with false signs and wonders to their shame.





Power Couples (2)

3/27/19 PM

A power couple is an exceptional husband and exceptional wife working as a team.

Grace Wherein We Stand (1)

3/24/19 AM

Romans 5:1-5 for five blessings bought by Jesus Christ for life after justification.

Jesus died for more than a fire-escape from hell. His death secured many more blessings for believers before they reach heaven. It is a shame to focus on Calvary or heaven to the exclusion of walking with God now as His sons and enjoying His favor presence, and power.





Grace Wherein We Stand (2)

3/24/19 PM

Romans 5:1-5 for five blessings bought by Jesus Christ for life after justification.

Paul listed five blessings with the words also and not only so. Tribulations are under his loving and wise control and lead to experience and hope that will never be disappointed. Jesus also bought the gift of the Spirit that fills the hearts of the faithful with His love for them.





The End of the Universe (1)

3/17/19 AM

God promised He will destroy the heavens and earth soon for the sins of mankind.

The wrath and vengeance of God are hardly known today. Most pulpits will not preach them. They ignore the Flood drowning all with the breath of life. They ignore most everything else as well. God is their pet and gumball machine. Listen to any sermon by Joel Osteen.





The End of the Universe (2)

3/17/19 PM

God has promised to save some from the coming destruction of the whole universe.

Men love anger and revenge - if against their enemies. But they reject God having any toward men for far greater sins. He will destroy this place soon. But He sent Jesus Christ to die for His elect children. They will watch the universe burn and then inherit the new one.





Pauls Fourth Preaching Trip (1)

27:1-44 as Paul is a prisoner on a ship to Rome and wrecks on the island of Malta.

Boasting About God - Job

3/6/19 PM

Job chapters 38-41 are precious chapters of God boasting great things about Himself.

God boasted of creation to humble Job. He mocked evolution and all men. Love God exalting Himself over Job. These are exciting chapters in the Bible for your family. The great lesson - God is greater than man - He can do to you anything He chooses (Job 33:12).

20:01 - 21:30 as Paul saw Greece, warned Ephesian elders, then caught in Jerusalem.
