Sermons about Sovereignty
The Holy Spirit is WAY too important to be an afterthought.
Israel's hardness towards the gospel, which has meant a time of openness towards the gospel among the Gentiles, will one day come to an end, and many Jews will be converted to Jesus Christ. Because of this, Paul urges his readers to remember that you are just a beneficiary of God's grace. So we're called to stop thinking so highly of ourselves, and stand in awe at the richness of God's mercy and the incomprehensible greatness of his plan.
Jesus: The Lunatic, Deceiver. or Savior?
1. KNOW JESUS CHRIST: and guard against satanic-deception. ● Christ is the wisdom of God: 1Cor 1:24; 2:1ff; Col 2. ● Jesus in Revelation: Rev 1:1 – Revelation is about/from Jesus; Rev 1:9ff – Jesus is the Exalted Christ; Rev 2 & 3 – the Lord of the Church; Rev 5 – the Lamb who was slain/worthy open scroll; Rev 6 – opens the scroll; Rev 7 – Lamb who is worshipped by the great multitude; Rev 12 – male child who defeats Satan; Rev 14 – Lamb who is standing victorious; Rev 17 – Lamb who conquers the beast; Rev 19 – Divine Warrior; Rev 20 – He reigns for 1000yrs; Rev 21 & 22 – Lamb who is the Temple and the light. 2. FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST: and persevere through tribulation. ● The Tribulation: Acts 2 – the Last Days are now; Rev 1:9 the Tribulation is now; Mth 24 & Mk 13 – the entire church age is a tribulation, like birth pains which will climax at the end. ● Following Jesus as the Lamb: Heb 11 & 12. 3. KNOW THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD: and be assured of our salvation. ● God’s sovereignty over evil: Lev 26:14ff. ● God’s sovereignty and our assurance of salvation: Rev 1 – Exalted Christ reigns over the churches; Rev 7 – the 144k are sealed; Rev 11 – the two martyred witnesses raised back to life; Rev 12 – the woman/people of God are nourished by God in the wilderness; Rev 14 – the 144k are standing victorious with the Lamb after the tribulation; Rev 20 – the resurrected believers are reigning with Christ for 1000yrs; Rev 21 & 22 – all God’s people are in fellowship with Him. 4. WORSHIP GOD: and stand against idolatrous-compromise (see Rom 12:1-2; and the 7 churches of Rev 2 & 3). 5. TRUST IN GOD FOR OUR DAILY NEEDS: and bear witness to the gospel (the Wilderness theme: see Rev 12 and the Exodus).
Theology 101: Do you know why you believe what you believe???
Hey you, in the pew, yeah you. Stop making excuses and do something about that faith you claim.
In this sermon we examine God's sovereignty and reign over everything.
In the first part of Paul's argument in chapter 9, Paul asserts the sovereignty of God is made known in whom He chooses to save. That choice is not based on any human effort or reason, but solely for the sake of His own glory. But before answering his critics claiming that God is unjust, Paul sets forth the surety of God's Word and gives us three Biblical historical stories of His faithfulness to His covenant.
The Bible's real, deal with it it.
The battle for joy, hope and courage is fought on these grounds: What do I believe about GOD? What do I believe about God’s heart towards to me? What do I believe about God’s relationship with me? What do I believe about the future? These are ultimate things.
