Daniel’s 70 Weeks

[Today, I thought I’d share my notes from last Wednesday’s message. -j] First, when we get into the breakdown of the years, you might want to check out Larken’s Chart on Daniel’s 70 Weeks. It’s totally epic. Daniel 9:20-27 Dan 9:20 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin ...

Satan vs. God

After the temptation in the garden of Eden and the fall of mankind into sin, you have this fascinating back-and-forth in a spiritual warfare between God and Satan. When man fell into sin (Gen. 3), God by His grace sought man out, sacrificed animals, clothed them with skins, and told Satan that a redeemer would ...

Jacob Have I Loved

Text: Romans 9:9-13 It is important to note, by way of context, that Romans 9 through 11 deals with the spiritual condition of unbelieving Israel, who had rejected their Messiah. Now, in the present Dispensation of Grace, these who are Israelites according to the flesh find themselves not part of the “Israel of God”.  This ...

Do You Feel Awe?

We had a podcast not too long ago in which awe was the theme, because there was an article that had been published in the Washington Post that asked the question, Do you Feel Awe? I loved this topic so much I did a sermon about this last Sunday. Below are some of the notes. ...

How was Jesus Born?

In our last article, we explored When Jesus was Born. Today, we’re going to look at how Jesus was born. We’re going to explore nothing less than the incarnation of the only begotten Son of God. (I must say, for a fantastic study on the word “Begotten”, be sure to check out Larry Gabbard’s recent ...

Want an Experience with God?

Rom 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. I love this verse too much. This verse tells you how to have an experience with God. First, let’s start with the context, which is absolutely ...

The Light on the Tree

John 8:12 – Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  John 9:5 – As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.  Acts 5:30 – The ...

Caring for His Wounds

Isa. 53:5 – But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities… In Isa. 53, the prophet is outlaying the means by which the redemption of Jehovah’s nation would be accomplished.  Per the terms of the law contract, the nation’s transgressions had yielded the bitter fruit of covenantal chastening, and their ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 3

The little flock during the future time of Jacob’s trouble will need “patience” to endure such times.  The description of those times is a major doctrine throughout the testimony of scripture.  Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel prophesied about these future times.  Daniel made prayers and supplications to God to know more about the timing of ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 2

Christ’s exhortations to “…endure unto the end, and the same shall be saved” (Matt. 24:13) or, “In your patience possess ye your souls.” (Luk. 21:19) are not exhortations that are dealing with eternal salvation from the debt and penalty of one’s sins.  Whether it be in Matthew or Luke the context is not spiritual salvation ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 1

Jesus had thoroughly prepared His disciples for the prophesied persecutions they were going to face. From the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7) to the Sermon on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24) He taught and warned them. This is echoed by Peter in 1 Peter 4:12-14, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery ...
