- The Resurrection Message Jesus Gave By His Seven Words from the Cross
Date: Apr 24, 2011 | Passage: Luke 24:33-45
Series: Our Risen Savior
From the dying lips of Jesus, from His raging-thirst-dried-mouth, in the midst of excruciating pain, even though being crushed by the horrors of sin and death and the pains of hell—Jesus carefully and clearly speaks. If we will listen, Jesus is speaking to each of us today from His Crucifixion. From Resurrection morning and onward, Jesus taught His disciples in the reality of what God accomplished through Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. Those disciples needed help to fully understand all that had taken place—and so do we.
- Baptism: John's and Christ's
Date: Mar 5, 2000 | Passage: Mark 1:4-8
Today, let's join the crowds trudging out toward the Dead Sea, listen with me at the back of this massive group of people listening as John the Baptist preaches. They have come into the region to the immediate W of the Dead Sea—an utterly barren desert. This area was known as the realm of the Jewish sect of the Essenes, and they had significant communities in this region. Of course, there is no biblical evidence to suggest that John was in any way connected with that sect. John also seems to have preached near the northern end of this region, close by where the Jordan flows into the Dead Sea, rather than midway down the shore.
- No Escape from God's Wrath
Date: Mar 19, 2000 | Passage: Genesis 6-8
Last week we saw the incredible security of being in God's Ark of Safety. This week we see the other side, the outside of that Ark. The same Hand that shut the door securely protected the eight inside. Is the same Hand that sealed the doom of all those outside.
- No Event More Catastrophic
Date: Mar 26, 2000 | Passage: Genesis 6-8
Above the softness of our blue green planet there are hostile forces poised. They range across space lurking and flying about at their master's bidding. They are former angels. They are Satan the Dragon's army.
- No Man like Noah
Date: Mar 5, 2000 | Passage: Genesis 6-8
Noah was the only dad on earth who saved his family from drowning in the great flood. He was unique. We are all unique. God created Adam and Eve in such a way that it would be impossible to ever have two descendants exactly alike.
- No Testimony More Vivid than the Ark
Date: Mar 12, 2000 | Passage: Genesis 6-8
Are you absolutely sure that you are headed to Heaven when you die? Is it presumptuous to think that you can know for certain that you are saved securely forever? I think not. The reason for such a conviction is rooted solidly in God's Word.
- The Baptism of Jesus
Date: Mar 12, 2000 | Passage: Mark 1:9-11
One of the richest studies for a disciple of Jesus is to follow His days in the Gospels. If you read closely the New Testament record you find a reference to specific days in the ministry of Jesus. When Jesus was baptized He was "fulfilling all righteousness" as Matthew 3:15 states it. So baptism was Jesus identifying Himself with sinners. On the Cross, he would bear their sins; and His perfect righteousness will be imputed to them (2 Cor. 5:21). But in God's perfect plan this act of baptism was a necessary part of the work of Jesus for those who would be saved.
- The Message of Jesus
Date: Mar 26, 2000
As believers this evening, one of the greatest privileges we have is knowing and sharing the message of Jesus. What is the message of Jesus?
- The Message of Jesus Christ
Date: Mar 26, 2000 | Passage: Mark 1:14-15
As believers, one of the greatest privileges we have is knowing and sgaring the message of Jesus. What is the message of Jesus? In a moment we will examine it word by word from Mark 1. But before that, think of the wonderful change that the message of Jesus has brought. What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought, since Jesus came into my heart. I have light in my soul for which long I had sought, since Jesus came into my heart!
- The Temptation of Jesus
Date: Mar 19, 2000 | Passage: Mark 1:12-13
The 3rd great event in the earthly life of Christ was His Temptation. This event is perhaps one of the most vital as we seek to love and follow Jesus all our days. Why? Jesus met and defeated Satan as a man. And against the bleak panorama of the Judean Wilderness we see this beautiful sight, a totally obedient servant who wins the battle because He obeys the Word of His Father in Heaven. So can we!
- Three Crosses
Date: Mar 23, 2000 | Passage: Mark 15
Three Crosses stood upon Calvary 2,000 years ago. Those three crosses speak of two destinies, of three men and in what condition they died. Today you and I are just like one of those crosses. Because those three Crosses portray you and me. Those three crosses portray all that is important today, in all of life and for all of eternity. Which Cross do you identify with?
