40 Years of Absalom

5/22/17 PM

Identify the 40 years in II Sam 15:7 that commentators and translators cannot.

Here is II Samuel 15:7, And it came to pass after forty years, that Absalom said unto the king, I pray thee, let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed unto the LORD, in Hebron. Textual critics, translators, and commentators do not know. Let the KJV show you the truth!





David (1)

5/21/17 AM

Simple sermons for reviewing character traits of David (1-7) making him special.

David was the man after Gods own heart. He is in the Hall of Faith. Jesus is Son of David often (Matt 1:1; Rev 22:16). The Bible emphasizes David by telling us more about him than any ten others. A good goal is for us to have the special traits that caused God to delight in him.





David (2)

5/21/17 PM

Simple sermons for reviewing character traits of David (8-15) making him special.

David was the man after Gods own heart. He is in the Hall of Faith. Jesus is Son of David often (Matt 1:1; Rev 22:16). The Bible emphasizes David by telling us more about him than any ten others. A good goal is for us to have the special traits that caused God to delight in him.





Regeneration & Conversion

5/17/17 PM

Abuoma Boanerges slides from Nigeria for the Bible truth about being born again.

The Bible says regeneration and conversion are different. Do you know the difference? Either man is dead like God said, or he is only sick in need of your help. God must regenerate, and then we must convert. Are you born again, working out the salvation God worked in?





Gospel of John (70)

5/14/17 AM

7:40-44 about the division among the common people about Jesus as the Christ.

Knowledge and truth are precious. Ignorance causes confusion and trouble. The Jews were divided about Jesus. Why not ask Him about his birthplace to discover it was the prophesied Bethlehem?! Confusion and division among Christians today is also caused by ignorance.





Gospel of John (71)

5/14/17 PM

7:45-53 about the division among the Jewish rulers about Jesus as the Christ.

Clergy intimidation of the laity did not start with Rome or seminaries, though they use it. Watch the numerous fallacies of Jewish rulers as they ridicule the officers sent to apprehend Jesus and Nicodemus, one of their own. Every man shall bear his own burden about truth.





Gospel of John (68)

5/7/17 AM

7:37-39 for further elaboration on the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost for saints.

These three verses are very important. They describe a new relationship between God and His children - God in them. The Holy Spirit enters obedient children at baptism and then provides layers and levels of power for greater understanding and victorious living. Be filled!





Gospel of John (69)

5/7/17 PM

7:37-39 for further elaboration on the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost for saints.

These three verses are very important. They describe a new relationship between God and His children - God in them. The Holy Spirit enters obedient children at baptism and then provides layers and levels of power for greater understanding and victorious living. Be filled!





Business Meeting

5/3/17 PM

Building committee informed the church about progress with the new facilities.





Gift of the Holy Ghost - Heresy

5/1/17 PM

The gift of the Holy Ghost in Acts 2:38 is not Him giving local church membership.

Some hold a sacramental view of baptism - it makes a person a church member, even if there is no church, like with the eunuch. One went so far with this RCC position to teach the gift of the Holy Ghost is the Holy Spirit giving church membership at Pentecost and since.





Gospel of John (67)

4/30/17 AM

7:37-39 for the Lord inviting men to freely partake of the coming gift of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus boldly declared a wonderful offer to the children of God in Jerusalem - the personal presence of God by the Holy Spirit would be in them after Pentecost. This superabundant supply would overflow their weaknesses and needs to diffusively affect others around them.





Marriage Celebration

4/30/17 PM

With a wedding to occur Monday, the church celebrated two members marrying.

A wedding is more covenant than ceremony. It is a celebration, not a sacrament; forget holy matrimony (RCC). No priest (O.T.) or pastor (N.T.) performed a wedding. Fathers coordinate the practical event rather than ministers. Jesus provided wine for a wedding but did no more.





Gift of the Holy Ghost

4/23/17 AM

A repeat sermon from 10/16/2016 about the Holy Spirit as spoil for the suffering of Jesus.

The great gift of the Holy Spirit for believers was given by God to Jesus, who in turn gave Him to repentant believers at Pentecost. Because Jesus willingly gave Himself in death to God for you, God rewarded Him with spoil that He has shared with the church. Rejoice!





Praise & Prayer Service

4/23/17 PM

Special prayer service to pray for more of the Holy Ghost and His ministries to us.

Paul prayed for more of the Holy Ghost and His work in individual believers and in corporate lives of churches. There is much more needed from Him than just regeneration. It is a fault of many Baptists to ignore or neglect the role of the Holy Spirit. A body is dead without Him.





Making Wise Decisions

4/19/17 PM

PowerPoint slides for the four dangerous enemies of making wise decisions in life.

Every day you make many decisions. The life of faith requires you to make them by fear and love of God and the truth and wisdom of the Bible. But there are four subtle enemies that powerfully influence men to bad decisions. This presentation also includes a valuable table.





Gospel of John (65)

4/16/17 AM

7:19-24 for Jesus rebuking the Jews for their hypocrisy about keeping the Sabbath.

The Jews wanted to kill Jesus for healing the impotent man on the Sabbath (5:16-18; 7:1). He rebuked them for hypocrisy - they would break the Law to kill Him, and they broke it every Sabbath with circumcisions. He taught wisdom about judging deeper than appearance.





Gospel of John (66)

4/16/17 PM

7:25-36 for the Jews confusion about the origin and destination of Jesus of Nazareth.

The Jews thought they had the origin of Jesus figured out, but they were blind to several facts due to not knowing God. They also missed His prophecy about His ascension by taking His words foolishly and naturally. Praise God for the gospel teaching you all the details of Christ.





Easter in Acts 12:4

4/15/17 PM

The KJV Bible has no error in Acts 12:4; it uses Easter for the Jewish Passover.

Many are amused or confused by use of Easter in Acts 12:4, and others want to find fault with the King James Bible. But there is no issue for Bible students. Easter is the English word for Passover in that verse. Passover is the feast of unleavened bread stated right in the context.





Women as Trees of Life

4/12/17 PM

PPT slides for girls and women to review the Bible mandate to be trees of life.

Being a Christian and living without helping others in godliness is a wasted life. You ignore the second command. You wrongly think you can love God and ignore His children. You neglect the duty to perfect others. These slides were to provoke the women of the church.





Personal Qualifications

4/10/17 PM

Spiritual character is more important than the technical rules of Bible heremeneutics.

Jesus taught in John 7:17 that learning the truth depends on personal and spiritual traits - especially obedience. Jesus Himself shocked His hearers by His knowledge without seminary training - for God had taught Him. God will also teach you (Ps 119:18; Luke 8:18; Eph 1:17).
