12/4/2019

Plus Nothing: Part 2- A Perverted Gospel

Plus Nothing: Part 1- A Deserted Gospel

11/17/2019
More
One of the most obvious and overlooked facts about the historical context of Galatians is that Paul is writing to believers, who have deserted the message of the true gospel, for one that has mixed in performance-driven acceptance based on obedience to Mosaic Law. Galatians is not only Bible evidence that legalism is possible in believers, it is evidence that it is common in believers. Through our fleshly desire to be our own savior, and the hero of our own story we are primed to accept...

Empty Thrones: Part 22- Self-Made Gods

10/20/2019

10/14/2019
More
As we close our study in the life of Samson we can see the Scriptures pointing us to faith in God through the final prayer he prayed to God. Because the Bible tells us his faith was genuine we can see some very real things about the nature of God and how He saves & sanctifies us. Support the show

9/25/2019
More
In chapter 16, we find the spiral of Samson's life spiraling down and ultimately coming to a fall. In this message we will see the dangers of operating in the flesh in the way we live, the way we love, and in the way we lose. Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 19- The Lust of the Flesh

9/22/2019
More
By Judges 15 the life of Samson is a contradiction of God's blessing & spiritual power in a man who is impulsive, unteachable, and driven by his own fleshly desires. Samson is living by the mantra, "As they did unto me, so have I done unto them..." In Samson we have the example of the lust of the flesh, so what does it mean to "walk in the Spirit", and how is it possible? Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 18 - Gifts & Fruit

9/15/2019
More
After the miraculous announcement of the birth of Samson in chapter 13, we would expect some incredible Judge to come ikon the scene & deliver Israel from its enemies. Instead we are left in the remaining chapters with a fleshly, impulse driven, sex addicted scoundrel who is unreachable and out of control. Yet the perplexing truth is that God has chosen Samson, He will inevitably use Samson, He will work through His flesh & sin, and ultimate accomplish His will. What can we glean from this...

Empty Thrones: Part 17- Walking in the Spirit

9/8/2019
More
As we begin to look at the final cyclical judge in the Book, God reveals some things about His desire both to know us, and give to us of His Spirit through the life of Samson. Whose eyes matter when determining right and wrong in our lives, and what has God given us that is better than rules whereby we can know Him? We find out together as we study Judges 13.

Empty Thrones: Part 16- A Terrible Vow

9/4/2019
More
Even with the presence of God's Spirit in us we are still capable of terrible things. This was the case of Jephthah. With his beliefs about God heavily influenced by the culture he was living in, he foolishly promised something he should never have. Jephthah, though well intentioned, is the picture of what we look like when we try to allow truth and error to coexist in our lives. Jesus is the perfect Judge who delivers us from ourselves.

Empty Thrones: Part 15- Oppressed or Blessed?

8/25/2019
More
Who we worship we serve. Who we serve owns us. Who owns us controls us. Choose who you will serve whether it be the gods of this world or the one true and living God, and His name is Jesus! From Judges 10:6-16 Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 14- The Destruction of Self-Reliance

8/18/2019
More
In Judges 9 we see the picture of a man in Abimilech that promotes himself, and lives a life to get all that his flesh desires. In contrast we see the trust in the Lord in Jotham, and the grace of God through Tola and Jair to save Israel from themselves. From this may we learn the destruction of self-reliance, and the corrupt nature of our flesh. To understand that our greatest battles will be with our own desires, and the key to overcoming them is yielding to God's will. Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 13- The Danger of Success

8/11/2019
More
When we have a measure of success we often feel deserved of admiration. When we are given a position of power, we need to protect our hearts from using it to lift up ourselves and abuse others. These are the Lessons we need to learn from the failures we see in Gideon at the end of his career as a Judge over Israel. Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 12- Assurance

8/4/2019
More
As we conclude chapter 7 of the book of Judges, we see God assuring His fearful servant through the reminder of His Word, the actions of others, and the circumstances that are facing him. Like Gideon we are continual need of reassurance, so God gives us His Word, others, and the circumstances of life to assure us of His love for us, and the confidence we should have in Him. If you've ever struggled with assurance, this message is for you. Support the show

Empty Thrones: Part 11- Who Gets the Glory?

7/28/2019
More
As we continue out study through Judges, we see through the life of Gideon that God wanted Israel to be certain who it was that would receive glory for their victory. He knew that if their salvation was by their works, they would have cause to boast in themselves and not in Him. We too would have reason to boast if our salvation was in ourselves and not completely in Christ. Who gets the glory? Jesus alone! Support the show
