Sin Problem ~ Legal Problem

Rom 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death. One Sin

1Cr 15:56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; One Sting

God’s holiness

Ps. 130:3

It all comes back to our understanding of the character of God. If God is holy, and He measures my sin against His holiness, it would be impossible to even balance the scales. David said, “If You, LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?”

Debt

James 2:10

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in on point, he is guilty of all.

Isaiah 64:6

For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment;
And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away

For the wages of sin is death.
  1. Sin Problem
    2. Grave Problem
    3. Life Problem

John 1:1,14

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

The Incarnation God became flesh: So what!

He was fathered by the Holy Spirit, his mother was a human being, therefore, his value was more than the entire human race.

The Cross

II Corinthians 5:21

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Sin Problem: Answered at the Cross

The Resurrection So What!

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection

Grave Problem: Answered at the Resurrection

Romans 8:34

“Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” Romans 8:34

Our Great Problems:

  1. Sin Problem: Answered at the Cross
    2. Grave Problem: Answered at the Resurrection
    3. Life Problem: Answered at the Ascension
The Second Coming of Christ

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many, and unto them, that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

How do I apply the gospel to myself?

Conditions for forgiveness
1. Faith  John 20:31 Hebrews 11:6
2. Repent [change your mind] Luke 13:3
3. Confess Romans 10:10
4. Be baptized Acts 2:38 Acts 22:16

Believe

Credence – believing that the facts accepting the truth.
Confidence – believing in (trust and obey)
Continuance – go on believing (faith& faithfulness) John 20:31 Greek (present continuous tense)

Belief = that is saving Faith

Credence-believing that the facts accepting the truth John 8:24Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that [a]I am He, you will die in your sins.”

Gospel

1.Incarnation
2. Cross
3. Resurrection
4. Ascension
5. Second Coming

Believe

Credence – believing that the facts accepting the truth.
Confidence – believing in (trust and obey)
Continuance – go on believing (faith& faithfulness) John 20:31 Greek (present continuous tense)

Heb 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

John 20:31But these are written that you may believe[a] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (present continuous tense)

Repent [change your mind]

Luke 13:3 I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.

16Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience[k]resulting in righteousness?

Confess

Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

Matthew 1032“Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. 33Butwhoeverdenies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

BE BAPTIZED: WHY BAPTISM???

Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Be baptized

Rom 6:1-14 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

Rom 6:2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Rom 6:3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Rom 6:4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Rom 6:5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection:

Rom 6:6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Rom 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Mark 16: 15,16

15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Remission of sins

Acts 2:38 Acts 22:16 2.

The new birth John 3:3-5 3.

Places one in Christ Gal 3:27 which is in his body the church. Christ will save his church Ephesians 5:23

The Names and Titles of Jesus – Jesus The Word/Logos


The Names and Titles of Jesus – Jesus The Word/Logos, spirit filled podcast

The Names and Titles of Jesus – Jesus The Word/Logos Episode 93

This series of the names and titles of Jesus will give us a more in-depth understanding of Jesus Christ our Lord. This is the second in the series. The following is an outline.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it. 6There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—13children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15(John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. and[b] is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

Exodus 33 :20 But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.“

1 Timothy 6:16 He alone is immortal and dwells in unapproachable light. No one has ever seen Him, nor can anyone see Him. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen. 18No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and[b] is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

Jesus the Word

  1. Pre-existent
  2. Co-existent
  3. Self-existent

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

1Co 1:24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God

Col 1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation

Heb 1:6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.

22“The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,[c][d] before his deeds of old; 23I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. 24When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water; 25before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, 26before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth. 27I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, 28when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, 29when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth. 30 Then I was constantly[e] at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, 31rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind. 32“Now then, my children, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. 33Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not disregard it. 34Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. 35For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD. 36But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.”

Predetermined Counsel of God.

Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,

1Pe 1:19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake

7No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began

The Wisdom of God

7No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began 23but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

The Word = Logos is the name of Jesus Reason Why

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The Jews understood that the Logos, the Word of God, was God revealing Himself, God creating, God acting, God alive in His creation

Targum Aramaic translation of the Hebrew Bible. (Yahweh)
Aramaic term that means “the word.” It’s the word memra.

Greek Septuagint memra “the word.” translation logos in Greek for example, in Genesis 15: “After this, the word [logos] of the Lord came to Abram in a vision.” Psalm 33, verse 6: “By the word [by the logos] of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.”

Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.”

-The apostle John is the only New Testament author to call Jesus “the Word.” He does so in the Gospel of John, and in his first Epistle of John, and also, as we’ll see, in the book of Revelation.

-When he talks about the “Word,” that’s the Greek word logos. So when you see the “Word,” that’s the logos.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John said 4 things about the Word Logos
  1. His Eternity
    2. His Personality
    3. His Deity
    4. His Humanity

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

2 Problems
  1. Too high a view of John
    2. Too low a view of Jesus

More divine than human?
More human than divine?
Partly human, partly divine?
Fully human, fully divine!

The Incarnation of the Word of Life

1 John 1 (NIV)
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.

THE WORD

I AM  (Yahweh) = LORD = “the word.” It’s the word memra= logos in Greek
Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, John infused this word with a richer, fuller meaning– not an impersonal force but a person, God made flesh.
Jesus was God’s mirror, God’s way of making Himself known to His creation. The definition of a word
John 1:18,No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side [Jesus, the Logos/Word of God], he has made him known.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” [that God who spoke in Genesis 1] has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God [how?] in the face of Jesus Christ [the Logos, the Word].

Believe
  1. Credence – believing that the facts accepting the truth.
    2. Confidence – believing in (trust and obey)
    3. Continuance – go on believing (faith& faithfulness) John 20:31 Greek (present continual tense)
Is this belief saving Faith
  1. Credence- believing that the facts accepting the truth John 8:24Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that [a]I am He, you will die in your sins.”
Gospel
  1. Incarnation
    2. Cross
    3. Resurrection
    4. Ascension
    5. Second Coming

THE WORD (logos) of God
Revelation 19:12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word Logos of God..

TRUTH IS NOT A PROPITIATION IT IS A PERSON
THE WORD THE LOGOS OF GOD

The Names and Titles of Jesus – The Name Above Every Name Jesus

The Names and Titles of Jesus – The Name Above Every Name Jesus, Spirit Filled Podcast, Bible StudyThe Names and Titles of Jesus – The Name Above Every Name Jesus – Episode  92

This series of the names and titles of Jesus will give us a more in-depth understanding of Jesus Christ our Lord. This is the second in the series. The following is an outline.

Philippians 2
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

THE GREAT I AM

The name of GOD YHVH

Exodus 3;15 “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM”: and he said, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”
YHVH YHVH LORD = YHVH (Adonai) Lord = Master (Adonai)
GOD= YHVH God= (Elohim) EL = short
Jehovah = YHVH
Yahweh = YHVH
YAH = YHVH
Exd 20:7 “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless who takes His name in vain.

Yahushua ַ הוֹשׁוּﬠ ְ•1 The first element is YAH, which is the commonly accepted abbreviated form of YHVH

2 The interesting word group that starts with YAH then the Hebrew verb (shua), meaning to be saved or delivered.

Yahshua is the name Joshua is a compilation of two elements.

Isa 12:2 Behold, God [is] my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For YAH, the LORD, [is] my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ “ Yahushua ַ הוֹשׁוּﬠ ְ =י I AM the I AM that saves

Numbers 13:7 These are the names of the men Moses sent to explore the land. (Moses gave Hoshea son of Nun the name Joshua.)

Yahushua יְהוֹשׁוּעַ = I AM the I AM that saves

Zech 6:11

Matthew 22:31-32

The name that you give to your child may not determine his or her destiny, but the name that was given to our Lord was a part of his destiny.
Jesus. That name reveals us why He came to this earth. It sums up His mission, His purpose, His destiny.

Jehovah saves. Jehovah is salvation

We cannot save ourselves. We need a Rescuer. We need a Deliverer. We need a Savior. That’s why the angel said, “You shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matt. 1:21). Jehovah saves. Jehovah is salvation.

How did Jesus save us from our sin?
“Jesus,” that common name from the Hebrew “Joshua”—“Jehovah saves.”

But now, here is Jesus hanging on cross, dying as a common criminal. This is why people said, “If He truly saves, let Him save Himself.”

Joshua, Yahushua Jesus

1. Jesus is God revealing God in our humanity

2. Jesus is is our covenant God

3. Jesus is God revealing our destiny

Luke 24:26 remission of sins is preached in his name
John 20:31 that you might have life in his name
Romans 10: 9 whosoever called upon his name
Acts 4 by what power you heal this man by the name of Jesus
Acts 9:27 we preach boldly in his name
Matthew 28 :18 by his authority make disciples – We are baptized into the name

It all comes back to the name the final revelation of God in Jesus Christ our Joshua – Yahshua

Philippians 2
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

God

1. God (Elohim) is the plural of EL – “in the beginning, God created the heavens and earth” Genesis 1:1

2. God (Elohim) = A term describing essence

3. The name of GOD YHVH Exodus 3:15 “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM”: and he said, “Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”

9 Now, therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.
10 Come now, therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
11 And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?
12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.
13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

“It is to be God’s name forever, my memorial unto all generations” see Exodus 3:15-16

Exd 20:7 “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless who takes His name in vain.

Psa 72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

YHVH appears 6800 times in the Old Testament. But it’s not translated YHVH LORD = YHVH (Adonai) Lord = Master (Adonai)

GOD= YHVH   God= (Elohim)  EL = short
Jehovah = YHVH
Yahweh = YHVH
YAH = YHVH

Exd 20:7 “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless who takes His name in vain. I AM = eternal

Micah 5:2 states that Israel’s Messiah would come from Bethlehem, and He is described as He “whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” This states not only His preexistence but the fact that He has existed from eternity.

The term “from everlasting” is, according to A.R. Fausset, “the strongest assertion of infinite duration of which the Hebrew language is capable.”1 The term is also used in Psalm 90:2.

Psalm 90:2
Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

In Isaiah 9:6, Israel’s Messiah is described as the “everlasting Father” or, as it is better rendered, “Father of eternity”. This also points to His existence from eternity past.

John 5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
39You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.

YHVH YHVH LORD = YHVH (Adonai) Lord = Master (Adonai)

LORD = YHVH (Adonai)

Welcome to Mount Zion – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 90


Welcome to Mount Zion, Spirit Filled PodcastThis is the 23rd and last class on the book of Hebrews. This Bible class was taught at the Pilot Point Church in Pilot Point Texas.

The following is the outline of the class.

Welcome to Mount Zion

Preservation of the saints

Hebrews chapter 10:19-12:29

  • True faith will enable us to run the race of life. Hebrews chapter 12:1-4
  • True faith understands God’s discipline is not contrary to God’s love Hebrews chapter 12:5-14
  • True faith understands the imperative to live holy Hebrews chapter 12:14-17
  • True faith chooses the right mountain Hebrews chapter 12:18-28

18You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”

Hebrews 12

22But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Hebrews 12

25See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”27The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. 28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29for our “God is a consuming fire.”

Concluding Exhortations and Application

Hebrews chapter 13

Outline Hebrews 13:1-6

Application – be loving

  1. Be loving to the brethren – verse 1
  2. Be loving to those who are strangers – verse 2
  3. Be loving to those who are persecuted – verse 3
  4. Be loving to your companions – verse 4
  5. Be loving in a positive and negative way – verses 5-6

Hebrews 13

13 Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. 3Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. 4Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. 5Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” 7Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. 9Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. 13Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. 14For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. 15Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. 17 Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.

Benediction and Final Greetings

18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.

20Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 22Brothers and sisters, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for in fact I have written to you quite briefly. 23I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been released. If he arrives soon, I will come with him to see you. 24Greet all your leaders and all the Lord’s people. Those from Italy send you their greetings. 25Grace be with you all.

Eph 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

NOTHING

John 1:1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

2.Good news because it gives us eternal life.

He was fathered by the Holy Spirit, his mother was a human being therefore his value was more than the entire human race.

The cross only has meaning because of who it was that was on it .

1Cr 6:9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,

1Cr 6:10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

1Cr 6:11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him

Perfect Mediator

Gal 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. One Mediator Gal 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Hbr2:17 For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.

Hbr2:18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Hebrews 4 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

The Incarnation God became flesh: good news!

The Response of Faith – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 88


The Response of Faith, Spirit Filled PodcastThis is the 22nd class on the book of Hebrews. This Bible class was taught at the Pilot Point Church in Pilot Point Texas.

The following is the outline of the class.

The Response of Faith

Preservation of the saints

Hebrews chapter 10:19-12:29

Hebrews 11

39And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.

Faith will enable us to run the race of life.

Hebrews chapter 12:1-4

Hebrews 12

1.Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
4. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Faith understands God’s discipline is not contrary to God’s love

Hebrews chapter 12:5-14

Hebrews 12

5And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, 6because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” 7Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.

Hebrews 12

9Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. 12Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13“Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.

Faith understands the Imperative to live holy

Hebrews chapter 12:14-17

Hebrews 12

14Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord. 15See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. 16See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. 17Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done.

Trusting God – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 87


Trusting God, Hebrews, spirit filled podcast, John D KimbroughThis is the 21st class on the book of Hebrews. This Bible class was taught at the Pilot Point Church in Pilot Point Texas.

The following is the outline of the class.

Preservation of the Saints

Hebrews chapter 10:19-12:29

Hebrews chapter 11

0ne point, have faith in God and be patience and He will give you all that He has promised.

A persevering faith is always rewarded VS. 1-40

Hebrews 11

The first and second verses and the sixth verse, taken together, help define faith for us. Here we see the ingredients of faith:
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old received divine approval. (Hebrews 11:1-2 RSV)
And without faith it is impossible to please God. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11:6 RSV)

Hebrews 11(NASB)

1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction ofthings not seen. 2For by it the men of old gained approval.

THE HEART OF BIBLICAL FAITH
CONVICTION

Hebrews 11

By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he received approval as righteous, God bearing witness by accepting his gifts; he died, but through his faith he is still speaking. (Hebrews 11:4 RSV)
Cain believe a lie. – That one way is as good as another
Abel believed God and came the way God had outlined

Hebrews 11

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; by this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. (Hebrews 11:7 RSV)

 

Three distinctive descriptions of Abraham
  1. Abraham was called God’s friend.

James 2:23(KJV) 23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
2. Abraham is the father of all who believes Romans 4:11-12  11And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: 12And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.
3. Abraham is a figure of true faith. Hebrews 11:8 -12, 17 through 19

Hebrews 11

8By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.  Genesis 12 (NIV)  12 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2“ I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.[a] 3I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”[b] 4So Abram went, as the LORD had told him

8By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9By faith he made his home in the Promised Land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[b] considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

13All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

17By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son; 18it was he to whom it was said, “IN ISAAC YOUR [n]DESCENDANTS SHALL BE CALLED.” 19 [o]He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him back [p]as a type 20By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come. 21By faith Jacob, as he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff. 22By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning his bones.

23By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. 24By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, 26considering the reproach of [q]Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he was looking to the reward. 27By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is unseen. 28By faith he [r]kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that he who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them. 29By faith they passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land; and the Egyptians, when they attempted it, were [s]drowned.

30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days. 31By faith Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient, after she had welcomed the spies [t]in peace. 32And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 33who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, 34quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.

35Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their [u]release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection; 36and others [v]experienced mockings and scourging’s, yes, also chains and imprisonment. 37They were stoned, they were sawn in two, [w]they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38(men of whom the world was not worthy),wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes [x]in the ground.

39And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.

Do Not Throw Away Your Confidence, Which Has A Great Reward – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 86


This is the 20th class on the book of Hebrews. This Bible class was taught at the Pilot Point Church in Pilot Point Texas.

The following is the outline of the class.

Do Not Throw Away Your Confidence, Which Has A Great Reward
Preservation of the Saints

Hebrews chapter 10:19-12:29

Hebrews 10

32Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions

James 1

2Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 5But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [h]without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Hebrews 10

32Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions 35Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Hebrews 10

37For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”[38And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” 39But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.

Hebrews 11

0ne point, have faith in God and be patience and He will give you all that He has promised.

A persevering faith is always rewarded

VS. 1-40

Things that are called faith but are not.
  1. Faith, is not positive thinking
    2. Faith is not a hunch that is followed.
    3. Faith is not hoping for the best, hoping that everything will turn out all right.
    4. Faith is not a feeling of optimism

Hebrews 11

  • The first and second verses and the sixth verse, taken together, help define faith for us. Here we see the ingredients of faith:
  • Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old received divine approval. (Hebrews 11:1-2 RSV)
  • And without faith it is impossible to please God. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11:6 RSV)
Definition of faith in God
  1. Faith commences with “things hoped for,” that is, it starts with a sense of discontent.
    2. Then comes “the conviction of things not seen” aware that we are surrounded by an invisible spirit kingdom, that which is seen is not the whole explanation of life,
    3. “He that comes to God must believe that he is, that God exists.” There are some who say, “That’s the hard part, that’s what is difficult.” No, it is not.
    4. “The assurance of things hoped for.” achieved by acting on the revelation of the things unseen.
    5. By faith we understand that the world was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear. (Hebrews 11:3 RSV)
The amazing deductions & implications and of Biblical faith
  • By faith, we understand that the world was created by the word of God so that what is seen was made out of things which do not appear. (Hebrews 11:3 RSV)— That statement was made in the first century.
    • Biblical faith puts us immediately in touch with reality. Faith is a way of piercing the illusion that tends to distract us and lead us into chasing rabbits of thought all over the pasture and bring us right to the point, to show us things as they really are. Do not laugh at faith. Faith is dealing with facts. Faith grounds one immediately on reality.
Grounds one immediately in reality. What science can’t tell us, faith can.
  1. How human history is going to end, but by faith, I know.
    2. Science cannot tell me what is wrong with human life, what is the reason why I act the way I do, and you act the way you do but by faith I know.
    3. Cannot tell me what lies beyond the door of death. Even to the scientists, it is an enigma, a mystery, but by faith, I know what lies beyond. Mystery, but by faith I know what lies beyond.
    4. Cannot explain the mysteries of my own makeup, and tell me how to fulfill my manhood, how to realize my dreams, but faith can.

Hebrews 11(NASB)

1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2For by it the men of old gained approval.

THE HEART OF BIBLICAL FAITH
CONVICTION

Hebrews 11

By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was attested as having pleased God. (Hebrews 11:5 RSV)

Genesis 5:21-24 (NIV)

21When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah.22After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years. 24Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more because God took him away.

Jude (NIV)

14Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Hebrews 11

By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he received approval as righteous, God bearing witness by accepting his gifts; he died, but through his faith, he is still speaking. (Hebrews 11:4 RSV)

Cain believes a lie. – That one way is as good as another

Abel believed God and came the way God had outlined

Hebrews 11

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; by this, he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. 8By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. The 9by faith he made his home in the Promised Land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. 11And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she[b] considered him faithful who had made the promise. 12And so from this one man, and he as good as dead came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore. 13All these people were still living by faith when they died.

Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

He Who Promised is Faithful – Spirit Filled Podcast Episode 85


He Who Promised is Faithful, John D Kimbrough, Spirit Filled PodcastThis is the 19th class on the book of Hebrews. This Bible class was taught at the Pilot Point Church in Pilot Point Texas.

The following is the outline of the class.

He Who Promised is Faithful

Hebrews 10

13waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET. 14For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. 15And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, 16“THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM,” He then says, 17“AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.” 18Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

Anyone want to go back to Judaism???

  1. A High Priest that is impeccable
  2. A covenant that is better
  3. A better place of service
  4. A better sacrifice in every way than the old covenant
  5. And one that the Holy Spirit says will satisfy every need we have to be right with God

Preservation of the saints

Hebrews chapter 10:19-12:29

19Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

1 Peter 3:21

20to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, 21and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.[e] It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities, and powers in submission to him.

Hebrews 10

23Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Hebrews 10

24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, (NIV)

26For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, (KJV)

Hebrews 10

26For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.

Hebrews 10

28Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.

Hebrews 2

2 We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 2For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, 3how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation?

Hebrews 10

28Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us. 30For we know the one who said, “I will take revenge. I will pay them back.” He also said, “The LORD will judge his own people.” 31It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
