Sermons about War
Scripture: Zechariah 9:9-10; Luke 19:28-40 The Pharisees rejected Jesus as the messiah because they didn't wish to cause trouble with the Romans. The people, while seeking a messiah, rejected Jesus in that role, because they were looking for a king that better fit their "definition" of a king. Someone that would lead them into battle against their enemies. Instead, Jesus rejected war and instead offered peace. Nevertheless, Jesus had to die on the cross, whether he was accepted or not. God may not be offering what we are looking for, but instead offers peace and everlasting life in His kingdom.
How should christians feel about war? The Bible has much to say about war. All concepts of war and violence must deal with Deuteronomy 20. Equip yourself to be able to answer critics who say that the God of the Old Testament is different than the God of the New Testament.
What does the Connecticut massacre and Bethlehem have in common? What does Deuteronomy 20 teach us about war, violence, and gun control? Before engaging any enemy, the Christian needs to be armed with a biblical worldview & THIS one primal truth from Scripture.
Pastor Gary Combs continues the series "All I Want for Christmas..." with this message from Colossians 3:15-17 on how we can experience the peace of Christ. In a world filled with war and strife, the message of Christmas means more than a cessation of hostility. It means true peace. Peace that begins in the human heart through God's peace offering-- Jesus Christ.
Every so often Veterans Day falls on a Sunday and we are reminded of the brave men and women who went to the battlefront to preserve the freedoms all of us enjoy today. The imagery of a soldier is used repeatedly in the Scriptures paralleling the attitudes and the duties of the soldier to that of the believer in Jesus Christ. This message focuses primarily on the necessity of obedience and devotion to our Heavenly Commander. We are engaged in a war, we fight the good fight of faith, yet we fight in victory and not for victory. Jesus Christ has already won the victory over sin and death and we can be victorious in this life insomuch as we faithfully follow Him.
How do we love people right in the midst of their personal, political, social, and moral choices? Pastor Tim Keller discusses how to deal with conflict and division.
A Christians, we are loyal to a new Kingdom that calls us to suffering love. Jesus showed us how to suffer. Part of suffering love is understanding that the weapon of those in the Kingdom of God is the Word of God NOT a sword or other physical weapon. We call those who will not fight when drafted Conscientious Objectors which John believes they should rather be called Scriptural Objectors.
We have a supernatural enemy, but we are fully equipped to fight the war!
