1. A Conquering, Courageous Faith, Part 2 (Hebrews 11:32-40) John MacArthur

    from John MacArthur / Added

    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/90-389 Well we have the opportunity tonight to look again at Hebrews chapter 11....Hebrews chapter 11. We have come to the end of this great faith chapter. It is monumental for a number of reasons. It is a monumental case laid for a relationship with God based on faith and not works. It is monumental as well because it gives us a kind of summary of the Old Testament. It kind of sweeps us through from the family of Adam all the way through the prophets which brings us virtually down to the New Testament. It is somewhat like the sermon of Stephen early in the book of Acts where he summarizes the history of God's working in Israel. Here similarly there is this summary, the emphasis is on the necessity of faith to have a true relationship to God. Let's read the verses that we'll be looking at tonight. Verse 30, "By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days. By faith, Rahab the harlot did not perish along with those who were disobedient after she had welcomed the spies in peace. And 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 who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection and others were tortured not accepting their release so that they might obtain a better resurrection. And others experienced mockings and scourgings, yes also chains and imprisonment. They were stoned. They were sawn in two. They were tempted. They were put to death with the sword. They went about in sheepskins, in goatskins being destitute, afflicted, ill treated. Men of whom the world was not worthy, wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground. And all these, having gained approval through their faith did not receive what was promised because God had provided something better for us so that apart from us they would not be made perfect, or complete."...

    • A Death for the Glory of God (John 11:1–16) John MacArthur

      47:13

      from John MacArthur / Added

      http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-57 Turn to John 11, John 11. When we go through books as we do, we sort of take what comes, wonderfully so, joyfully so. That means that passages have different character as we go, depending on the passage. We’ve been through a lot in the gospel of John that’s theological, and we’ve been dealing with some profound theological truth. In fact, really, that is the essence of the gospel of John. It is of the four gospels, the most theological. Profound truth that we have looked at, propositional truth, absolute truth has been disclosed through John’s history of our Lord Jesus Christ, but as we come to chapter 11, we come to a narrative. Really, an account of a miracle, and it takes up the whole chapter, and it’s a long chapter. We’re going to have to break it into four sections, which means I can’t tell the whole story. I wouldn’t do that to this story. I wouldn’t do that to this text. I wouldn’t do that to you. We need to take this slowly so that we can absorb all of its incredible truth....

        • A Diagnosis of the Christ-Rejecters (Luke 20:19-26) John MacArthur

          58:11

          from John MacArthur / Added

          http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/42-247 If you will open your Bible to the gospel of Luke and the twentieth chapter, we're going to return to the passion week, the week of our Lord Jesus Christ's crucifixion, and look at the next in the series of texts that Luke gives to us to record both the earthly and the spiritual history of this great week. Luke chapter 20 and I want to begin reading in verse 9 which will embrace the parable that we last studied because it's an essential one to what follows what we'll look at this morning. Luke chapter 20 and verse 9: "And He began to tell the people this parable. A man planted a vineyard and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey for a long time. And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers in order that they might give him some of the produce of the vineyard. But the vine-growers beat him and sent him away empty handed. And so he proceeded to send another slave and they beat him also and treated him shamefully and sent him away empty handed. And he proceeded to send a third and this one also they wounded and cast out. And the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son, perhaps they will respect him.' But when the vine-growers saw him, they reasoned with one another saying, 'This is the heir. Let us kill him that the inheritance may be ours.' And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What therefore will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy these vine-growers and will give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, 'May it never be.' But he looked at them and said, 'What then is this that is written? The stone which the builders rejected, this became the chief cornerstone. Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.' And the scribes and the chief priests tried to lay hands on him that very hour, but they feared the people for they understood that He spoke this parable against them. And they watched Him and sent spies who pretended to be righteous in order that they might catch Him in some statement so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor. And they questioned Him, saying, 'Teacher, we know that you speak and teach correctly and you are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?' But He detected their trickery and said to them, 'Show Me a denarius, whose likeness and inscription does it have?' And they said, 'Caesar's.' And He said to them, 'Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.' And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people and marveling at His answer, they became silent."...

          • A Diagnosis of the Soils, Part 2 (Mark 4:1-20) John MacArthur

            54:54

            from John MacArthur / Added

            http://www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/41-19 We come now to the Word of God and what a privilege it is. And we're looking at the fourth chapter of Mark again and the parables of the soils that takes up the first twenty verses of this fourth chapter. So open your Bible to Mark chapter 4. This is message number three and will be the last message as we look at the parables of the soils. There is so much actually in the truth of this parable that I suppose one could do ten, twelve, or even twenty messages just explaining the nuances of this parable. So by no means are we exhausting it in three messages. It is a familiar story to all students of the New Testament, one of the most familiar of all of Jesus' parables. Let's familiarize ourselves again with it by starting at verse 1....

            • A Diagnosis of the Soils, Part 1 (Mark 4:1-20) John MacArthur

              49:32

              from John MacArthur / Added

              http://www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/41-18 Well let's open the Word of God to the fourth chapter of the gospel of Mark, and we're going to continue to take a look at what is known as the parable of the soils...the parable of the soils, very familiar parable to students of Scripture. We're going to dig a little deep into the dirt, if you will, on this one, go down into the soil and discover all that we can as to its meaning. But let me remind you of the story itself in the opening eight verses. Mark 4, "He began to teach again by the sea...that is Jesus by the Sea of Galilee...and such a very large crowd gathered to Him that He got into a boat in the sea and sat down, and the whole crowd was by the sea on the land and He was teaching them many things in parables and was saying to them in His teaching, 'Listen to this, behold, the sower went out to sow. As he was sowing, some seed fell beside the road and the birds came up and ate it up. Other seed fell on the rocky ground where it did not have much soil and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of soil and after the sun had risen, it was scorched and because it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among the thorns, or the weeds, and the thorns came up and choked it and it yielded no crop. Other seeds fell into the good soil and as they grew up and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundred fold.'"...

                51:04

                from John MacArthur / Added

                Text: Luke 16:1–13 Let me encourage you to come to Luke 16. There are about 40 parables that our Lord gave, and nobody else in the New Testament gave any parables, so all the parables were given by our Lord. As we know, they were designed to hide the truth from unbelievers, but to reveal it to believers, those who have ears to hear. Parables were, in a sense, a judgment, a confirmation of rejection. At the same time, they were light to those who had the ears to hear. We find that this particular parable is designed to help believers, as they all are. At the end of the day, they are only going to help believers because only believers really understand them... http://www.gty.org/resources/Sermons/90-467

                  02:00

                  from John MacArthur / Added

                  http://www.macarthurcommentaries.com Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. (Hebrews 12:1) We are all creatures of motivation. We need a reason for doing things and we need encouragement while we are doing them. One of the greatest motivations and encouragements to the unbelieving Jews, as well as to Christians, would be all these great believers from the past, their heroes, who lived the life of faith. The cloud of witnesses are all those faithful saints just mentioned in chapter 11. We are to run the race of faith like they did, always trusting, never giving up, no matter what the obstacles or hardships or cost. They knew how to run the race of faith. They opposed Pharaoh, they forsook the pleasures and prerogatives of his court, they passed through the Red Sea, shouted down the walls of Jericho, conquered kingdoms, shut the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, received back their dead by resurrection, were tortured, mocked, scourged, imprisoned, stoned, sawn in two, had to dress in animal skins, were made destitute—all for the sake of their faith...
