“The Word of Revelation” part 3

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “The Word of Revelation” part 3 The Word of the Prophets.  The Word is full of motifs (tapestries of themes) which point to the Person of salvation. In hindsight, we see that the Feasts depicted major aspects of Jesus’ person and work. We see how He is the fulfillment of Sabbath…

“The Word of Revelation” part 2

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “The Word of Revelation” part 2 The Word of Law (or righteousness) is the same as the Word of love.  We live with our carnal desires (the flesh) and have been totally depraved; thus our thinking, motives, and even worship has been tainted by sin.  Jesus, however, was born of the…

“The Word of Revelation” part 1

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “The Word of Revelation” part 1 Everything except God must have context.  All creation is in the context of the eternal Word.  For example:  galaxies, our solar system, and earth are governed in and by the environment of the cosmos, while spiritual beings such as angels and humans are governed by…

“Metaphorical Miracle” John 9

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “Metaphorical Miracle”  John 9 The greatest miracle I know is that I was blind and now I see! “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (Jn. 3:36; see…

“Sons of Satan” John 8:37-59

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “Sons of Satan”  John 8:37-59 Are you a slave or an heir?  Is your father God or the devil?  Do you abide in Christ or dismiss His claim of being the Almighty God?  In His argument with the Jews, Jesus had to correct their assumptions of their spiritual status and His…
