Branches of the Olive Tree08/17/14
Branches of the Olive Tree This is an exposition of one of the most misunderstood portions of our New Testament, and that God will fulfill His word, and before the Lord returns, one sign will be the widespread coming to Christ of natural Israel.
"Came walking on the sea"
"Came walking on the sea" The miraculous feeding of the five thousand is quickly followed by another sign, one too often overlooked, but should not be, for it is Jesus again revealing His nature in a divine theophany.
His provisions in the wilderness
His provisions in the wilderness This special sign that Jesus performs in the wilderness is the one found in all four gospels, and is one in which too are to understand just who Jesus truly is. This program is a look at the meaning of the feeding of...
"That God may have mercy upon all"
"That God may have mercy upon all" There is nothing like Paul to confuse the skeptic, and irreligious, and this is so true as he regales his readers with the quandary of why Israel has yet to accept Jesus as their Messiah.
"The Kingdom is like"
"The Kingdom is like" This is the continuation of last week exposition, as the true and complete meaning of Jesus' frequent use of parables is further explored, and it?s meaning for us, even to this day.
It is all about the Kingdom
It is all about the Kingdom This is about the parable of the sower, and what it really means. It is about the Kingdom of God, and what that really means. It may not be what you think it is, and how it applies to our lives centuries later.
More Tolerable On That Day
More Tolerable On That Day This program is a profound look at how our Lord judged the disbelief on the cities of Galilee, and as they were so privileged in what they experienced, and what they may mean for our own societies, as we have been so...
"God will provide"
"God will provide" The program takes a different tack, and looks at the profound and disturbing test of Abraham, concerning his son, "his only son," Isaac to be sacrificed. What this meant, and its impact on our faith even to this day.
"Be not afraid"
"Be not afraid" This is a look at the tenth chapter of Matthew?s gospel, and how precious we are in the sight of God. And that no matter what we face in life, God is concerned, and has said that we need not be afraid, for He knows us intimately even...
What's in a Name
What's in a Name This Trinity Sunday we look at the importance of this tenet of our faith. It is not a human construction, but how our God has revealed Himself, and includes for us the question posed to the disciples, just "who do you say I am?"
"As Many as the Lord God Calls"
"As Many as the Lord God Calls" This is Pentecost Sunday, which is not so much the beginning of the Church, as it is about the fulfillment of the Holy Spirit. Not upon a select few, but this is "the promise to as many as the Lord God calls," and...
More precious than gold
More precious than gold Peter?s first letter has even more to say to us, and just as important. Here is a look at at what it is God has and is doing for us through Jesus Christ, and among which is that our faith is "more precious than gold."
Yes, I said Priests
Yes, I said Priests This is further look at Peter, and the important insights he provides in his first letter, among which is that we to be priests unto our God. A position, a heritage we cannot, nor should we abdicate in favor of any individual, no...
A place for us
A place for us Using the last phrase of the 23rd Psalm, and the Lord's words to His disciples we are looking at the reality that our God has a purpose and a place of rest for us, until He comes to remake "heaven and earth."
My shepherd, our shepherd
My shepherd, our shepherd Here is a affectionate look at one of the most treasured passages in our Bible, the 23rd Psalm. But there is more here than just a pleasant picture of the love of God, but just how much he is our shepherd, with the insight...
Repent, everyone and be baptized
Repent, everyone and be baptized Continuing with Peter's sermon, we find that many in the crowd, "are cut to the heart," and will ask what must we do. Peter?s response is timeless, and centers on the much-abused rite of water baptism.
Men of Israel, Listen
Men of Israel, Listen It is the first Christian sermon, and Paul, now a much different man, will challenge the vast throng gathered in the Temple. They have been compliant in the death of Jesus, whom Peter declares is the Messiah.
The Sign of Jonah
The Sign of Jonah This Easter program is a look at the Old Testament anticipation of this event, and more. Just what did Jesus mean by "no sign will you be given than the sign of Jonah?" This is more amazing than most have been led to believe.
Restoring the Throne
Restoring the Throne Continuing our theme, we will find that Palm Sunday and the entire week of the Lord's passion, is the restoration of the throne of David. He was meant to, and did reestablish the Davidic throne, God?s Kingdom, and a lot more.
Preserve The Realm
Preserve The Realm It is more than just defending the faith, but like those of old, we are as well to preserve the realm. That is, we are to see to the expansion, the well-being, and vitality of the Kingdom of God. That which will come on earth as it...
