JESUS GIVES LIFE (John 11:28-44)

JESUS GIVES LIFE (John 11:28-44)

August 26, 2019

Last week we started a study of the miracle of the Lord Jesus Christ raising Lazarus from the dead. Now, this is a familiar story to all of us. So, if we are going to study this story again, what should we be sure that we learn from it? Jesus defines it for us when He says, “but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.” Jesus is telling us that this was an occasion to declare His oneness with his Father at all times and in all situations. It was an opportunity, as God, to convince people that he was all he claimed to be; an occasion to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of prayer, an occasion to make a solemn appeal to those who were His enemies.

In order for this to be true, in order for Jesus to raise Lazarus from the dead, then there is something else that we need to know about Lazarus while he was in the grave. We need to know that Lazarus was dead. He wasn’t sick. He didn’t faint. He was really dead. He had been dead for four days and then Christ raised him to walk again.

The Bible says that for the believer to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. That loved one of yours is still living, and if they had Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, then they are present with Him in heaven. If you have Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you will join them for all of eternity. Death is but a moment. Life with Jesus is eternal.

Amen.

JESUS, THE MASTER OF LIFE AND DEATH (John 11:1-27)

Over the next few weeks we are going to be talking about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Why am I going to spend so much time here? Because we should never get tired of hearing this story. Why? Because it has so much for us to learn and commit to our hearts about death, resurrection, and the realm of darkness. It brings life where death reigns, and it robs the tomb of its terror. Jesus is going to show Martha, Mary, all of His disciples, and the entire world that He is indeed the Son of God with the power over death, and that He alone holds the keys to eternal life, heaven and hell.

JESUS AND THE FATHER (John 10:30-42)

JESUS AND THE FATHER (John 10:30-42)

August 11, 2019

In our study today, we look at the Lord Jesus Christ’s word in John 10:30 and He says, “I and my Father are one.” Indeed, they are. They are one in mind, thought, heart, will, purpose, and action. While that is a true description of what Jesus has just declared, it goes beyond that. Jesus and The Father are not one in person, but in essence. God the Father and God the Son are two separate persons, but they are two parts of the one Triune God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Click on the link below to hear a message on the deity of Jesus Christ. Jesus will tell us that all we have to do to know this is true is to look at His works to know that that He is of God. Jesus and the Father are God, Jesus and the Father are one.

Amen.

KNOWING YOU ARE ETERNALLY SECURE PART IV (John 10:27-29)

KNOWING YOU ARE ETERNALLY SECURE PART IV (John 10:27-29)

August 4, 2019

Today, we will finish this series on knowing you are eternally secure. As I have said over the last couple of weeks, I am doing this series because I believe that God has laid a burden on my heart to share this gift of security in your salvation that He has shared with me. I want you to know this is true, but most of all, God wants you to know this is true in your heart.

In this message we look at several of the verses that people will point to and say that they indicate that a person can lose their salvation. Last week we looked at 2 Peter 2:20-22. This week we look at Matt. 24:11-13, John 15:6-8, and Heb. 6:4-9. As we look at these verses, we will discover what God is really trying to say. One thing I know for sure, God’s Word is infallible and inerrant. He will not tell us in one verse that we are eternally secure, and then in another tells us that we can lose our salvation.

Click on the link below to hear a message on how you can know in your heart that once you are saved, you are eternally secure, and cannot lose that salvation.

Amen.
