1. Then Jesus Came

    53:24

    from BethelChurch Added 200 0 0

    Baptism plunges us into a pilgrimage and preceded Jesus' public ministry. For us, baptism publicly proclaims our discipleship. The Spirit propels us along the path. Under the Spirit's guidance, "tests will be given." Passing His tests prepares us. Our pilgrimage has stages, there's a season of not yet and there's a time to "step up."

      • Reasons for Loving the Church, Part 2 (Selected Scriptures) John MacArthur

        53:23

        from John MacArthur Added

        http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/80-341 Well as I was mentioning a few moments ago, we have been in a prolonged recognition of God's faithfulness of over 40 years of ministry together, and it has prompted me on each of our Sundays over the last month or so to look at some of the foundations of our church that has put us in the place where God has blessed us so greatly. We take no credit for it, this is not a work of man, certainly not a work of mine. This is, we believe, a work of God. There are some spiritual commitments that we have made here in this church that really were there at the very, very beginning of this church, even when I came, an eagerness to follow the Word of God. And it is that commitment to the Word of God that has given us unwavering, unaltered, unchanging commitment to a pattern of ministry that is laid out in the New Testament. I grew up in churches. My father and grandfather being pastors, I was exposed to my own church as a kid growing up in my Dad's church, I was exposed to many other churches, many churches in which we had mutual ministry and shared youth activities and things like that. My college days, even while I was a student, I was speaking in various places in various places. In seminary I was in more churches and exposed to more approaches to churches and how they did their work. And by the time I finished my seminary days, I had pretty much seen every way you could do church at least at that period of time. And I came to the conclusion that I just wanted to follow what the New Testament said as closely as possible. Setting aside all those things that were traditional or normal or expected, let's go back and see what the Word of God has to say. I couldn't imagine that the Lord would have expectations for His church and not instructions for His church. And so it was that in the months before I ever came here, I was grappling with the Word of God, endeavoring to understand if the Lord ever allows me to become a pastor, what is it that is non-negotiable, critical, essential...what are the mandates for the life of the church so we can be the church of Jesus Christ and bring honor to our Head and have an impact in the world. And so from those earliest days when we first came together in February of 1969, our focus was always upon...what does the Word of God have to say about every aspect of our life as a church?...

              http://www.gty.org/video/international/RU-V8242-233 English Title: The Impossibility of Salvation, Part 2 (Luke 18:18-27) John MacArthur Откройте Библию на восемнадцатой главе Евангелия от Луки, мы продолжаем уже второй раз разбирать текст, в котором описывается встреча Иисуса с богатым молодым начальником. От Луки глава 18, и все это происходит с 18 по 30 стих. Однако, серьезный элемент упущен в его жизни. По его собственному признанию, он не имеет вечной жизни. То есть, такой жизни, которая соединяет его с Богом. Да, он религиозен, да, он порядочен, да, по всем человеческим меркам он добр и набожен, он исполнил все требования и предписания своей религии, все церемонии, ритуалы и обряды, во всех отношениях он лидер: в моральном, духовном и общественном смысле, но у него нет самого желанного -- взаимоотношений с Богом, то есть нет той жизни, которая принадлежит Богу и длится вечно. Это такая жизнь в понимании евреев, которая приносит мир, радость, покой, надежду, уверенность, безопасность, гарантию и небеса. Он знал, что не имеет этого....

                53:22

                from John MacArthur Added

                http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/42-262 It is that time when we turn to the Word of God to hear the Word of the Lord. The text before us today is found in Luke chapter 21...Luke chapter 21. And as you know, if you've been studying the Word of God with us, the twenty-first chapter of Luke's gospel is about the return of Jesus Christ. In fact, it is our Lord's own words regarding His return. He had much to say about the Second Coming. He gave this message on the Mount of Olives in the evening on Wednesday of Passion Week. After teaching all day in the temple and being confronted by the leaders, He left, sat on the side of the Mount of Olives and spoke to the disciples concerning His Second Coming. Thursday, the next day, they celebrated the Passover. Friday He was crucified. Sunday He rose from the dead. Forty days later He ascended to heaven where He has been until He returns. The world is very familiar, at least the western world, with the elements of Christmas, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, the story of His first coming. Most people are familiar with Bethlehem and a manger and Joseph and Mary and no room in the inn and the star and angels and shepherds and wise men and perhaps even Herod and the slaughter of the innocents. Those are precious elements to the familiar story of our Lord's first coming. All of those elements are part of a grand scheme of things which God has revealed in Scripture. There are at least 300 plus Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in the first coming of Jesus Christ. The details of His first coming then were laid out in the Old Testament. So were the details of His Second Coming. In fact, the Old Testament in many places and in many ways describes details not fulfilled in His first coming to be fulfilled in His Second Coming. The precision with which the details of His first coming were fulfilled validates the Old Testament and establishes the credibility of those details prophesied with regard to His Second Coming....

                    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/42-237 Let's open our Bibles to Luke 18 and we will look at the text of verses 35 through 43, it is the last section in the eighteenth chapter of Luke's glorious gospel. Luke chapter 18 verses 35 through 43. Listen as I read. "And it came about as He was approaching Jericho, a certain blind man was sitting by the road begging. Now hearing a multitude going by began to inquire what this might be. And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. And he called out, saying, 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.' And those who led the way were sternly telling him to be quiet. But he crying out all the more. 'Son of David, have mercy on me.' And Jesus stopped and commanded that he be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He questioned him. 'What do you want Me to do for you?' And he said, 'Lord, I want to regain my sight.' And Jesus said to him, 'Receive your sight. Your faith has made you well.' And immediately he regained his sight and began following Him, glorifying God. And when all the people saw it, they gave praise to God."...
