1. The Resurrection Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-11) John MacArthur

    50:17

    from John MacArthur / Added

    http://www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/90-407 First Corinthians chapter 15 is our chapter and I'm very, very thankful for the direction of the Spirit of God to look at this chapter. It is the great resurrection chapter. As you can see by simple glance, it's long, it runs for 58 verses and by the time we're done, we'll have a great understanding of the wonder of resurrection. Now this chapter is not particularly about the resurrection of Christ, although that is foundational to the resurrection. It's about your resurrection and my resurrection. So this is your future we're talking about here. This is your story. This will happen to you. This is very personal. This looks ahead to what the Lord has prepared for them that love Him....

      • John MacArthur on What It Means to Do Greater Works Than Jesus (strange fire) #22

        John MacArthur on What It Means to Do Greater Works Than Jesus http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130813 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father" (John 14:12). Many charismatic teachers look to the above verse to validate their teaching. They see it as a proof text for the notion that present-day believers can perform miraculous signs and wonders—even more spectacular than Jesus Himself. Reinhard Bonnke, who claims to have raised the dead, is one prominent charismatic who subscribes to that view, and has even written a book offering his interpretation of what Jesus meant by "greater works." But Bonnke's view not only contradicts church history, it also defies Jesus' teaching in Scripture. In the following audio clip, John MacArthur explains the true, and far more profound, meaning of John 14:12. One of the great tragedies of the charismatic movement's fixation on miracles is that it drags the focus away from biblical priorities. Rather than bring the life-transforming power of Scripture to bear on a lost and dying world, too many charismatics long for God's power to manifest itself in and through their own experiences. The Strange Fire conference will be a much-needed biblical response to the wildly unbiblical ideas formed from subjective experience.

          Steve Lawson on the Ministry of the Holy Spirit http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130806 Pentecostalism is a charismatic movement that derives its name from the day of Pentecost described in Acts 2, when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the members of the early church. That passage remains a centerpiece of Pentecostal teaching to this day. It is ironic that such a "movement of the Holy Spirit" has always paid little or no attention to Jesus' clear description of the Spirit's true ministry in His church. In this video, Steve Lawson explains what that ministry is. Jesus, referring to the Holy Spirit, said, "And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment" (John 16:8). He also said, "He [the Spirit] will testify about Me" (John 15:26). A clear proclamation of the true ministry of the Holy Spirit, and what that work looks like in the lives of His people, is long overdue—but not for much longer!

            Steve Lawson on the Role of the Holy Spirit http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130730 Christians exalt God—we understand that. That means we should exalt each member of the Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The charismatic movement, however, tends to focus attention on the Holy Spirit to an inappropriate degree. In the following video, Steve Lawson explains why that is a problem. The ministry of the Spirit is to primarily magnify the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is a mark of any true movement of the Holy Spirit. The Strange Fire conference will declare and defend a biblical view of the Holy Spirit.

              John MacArthur on Identifying False Teachers http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130723 "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them." -- Romans 16:17, KJV Identifying and confronting false teachers is extremely unpopular today. But Scripture calls Christians to discern truth from error, providing guidelines for identifying and dealing with those who try to corrupt Christ's church with false doctrine. John MacArthur elaborates on this in the following audio. Governments recognize the necessity of protecting their citizens. The church should be even more vigilant against spiritual terrorists, especially in light of what's at stake—people's souls. The Strange Fire conference will equip believers to spot false teachers and their destructive heresies.

                John MacArthur's Major Concern with the Charismatic Movement http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130709 The charismatic movement claims that it is the movement of the Holy Spirit, but there's a serious problem with that assertion according to John MacArthur. In the following video, John explains what that problem is and how to address it. Before you can determine whether the Holy Spirit is at work in your life, you need to rightly understand who He is and what He does. And God's infallible Word is the only reliable place to find that understanding. A major goal of the Strange Fire conference is to equip believers to discern the Spirit's work in their lives and the surrounding world.

                  What Does It Really Mean to Worship God in Spirit and Truth? http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130716 "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:24). That frequently quoted verse has become a popular proof text for charismatic doctrine. In fact, a recent article in Charisma magazine used it as biblical support for speaking in tongues as a form of "spirit-to-Spirit communication with God." But do Jesus' words in John 4:24 really affirm sign gifts as necessary parts of our worship? In the following audio, John MacArthur explains the true meaning of worshiping God in spirit and truth. God calls His people to be worshipers—people who revere Him with all of their adoration and affection. The Strange Fire conference is designed to encourage true spiritual worship by defining it rightly.

                    John MacArthur on The Dangers of Demoting Scripture http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130514 How dangerous would it be to leave the spiritual operations of Christ's church to the opinions, feelings, and personal preferences of its leaders? Can you imagine the uncertainty and instability of not having an ultimate standard of authority on all matters of faith and practice? Yet that is precisely what we see in every fellowship that demotes the Bible from its rightful place of authority. It's easy to spot the anarchy that follows the outright rejection of God's Word. But reducing Scripture's authority to merely one voice among many creates a hollow, deceptive veneer of biblical fidelity. In the following video, John MacArthur explains the centrality of Scripture in all facets of Christian life. He also discusses the propensity of the charismatic movement to elevate personal experience at the expense of biblical truth. http://www.tmstrangefire.org The Strange Fire conference is going to bring a necessary, biblical critique to bear on the charismatic movement and the resultant fallout of doctrinal chaos and confusion.

                      Steve Lawson on The Reformers and the Charismatic Movement http://www.gty.org/Blog/B130430 The highlight of the Strange Fire conference is going to be the opportunity to hear from several different godly preachers who come from a variety of settings, all united by their love of the Lord and their conviction to faithfully teach His truth. Steve Lawson is the pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama. He's also a prolific author, particularly on the topics of preaching and church history. We're eager to hear him bring his considerable expertise to bear on topics like the Person and work of the Holy Spirit, and the nature of God's revelation to us. With that in mind, we asked Dr. Lawson what he planned to preach at Strange Fire. His answer will whet your appetite for all the Lord has in store this October.... http://www.tmstrangefire.org
