Sermons tagged #Seedoftheserpent
During the Advent Season we once again pause to reflect upon the Greatest Gift mankind has ever received; the Hope of liberation from sin, death, and the tyranny of man. This sermon focuses on the verbal promise of Victory that was given to Adam in the garden of Eden. This is the Third sermon of a four-part series.
Is God A Liar And A Murderer? Is God A Liar And A Murderer? That is Satan’s lie... but how do Calvinists respond?
Ezekiel 38 is going on. Pastor Chronister starts by getting into the official notice from the Israelis to Russia. We're in the discussion of the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. And the seed of the serpent, Judas, delivers Christ over to be crucified. We are entering the subject of the death of Christ. Satan was found guilty of attempted murder of the Woman in Genesis 3. But the man laid down his life for her. In the garden, full of innocence, there is death... the tree of death. God must tell Adam about death. Otherwise, Adam would be easily fooled by Satan. And how did a third of the Angels fall? Satan started by lying to himself. He likes the lie. He likes saying that there is no judgement for him. Why would Satan choose to become the adversary of God? The question is, "When did Jesus Christ become accursed for us?" Physically it happened at the cross. And there is much about the sorrow surrounding the cup in the garden of Gethsemane. It was a sorrow unto death. The disciples passed out from sorrow. Jesus' prayer is astonishing. It's not possible that Jesus didn't drink the cup. Now, the cup is not equal to the cross, but it is connected, just not interdependent with the cross. And why did Jesus say, "My God. My God. Why hast thou forsaken me?" If you have not heard what is really going on here, you'll believe what you've been told, which is incorrect. But, how do the Calvinists respond to Satan's declaration that God is a liar and a murderer, and that Christ perpetuates that lie? There is much more to this sermon and you'll want to listen for the insights that our pastor leads us to from God's Word. Thank you for taking the time to join us.
God Allows Evil! Why? God Allows Evil! Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. He gave us Free Will!
We start with an assessment of what is happening between Hamas and Israel. Open your Textbooks to John 17:11-12, because we are in that time where people misunderstand this passage. Jesus is referring to the twelve disciples and is making reference to Genesis 3 because God the Father has given the seed of the serpent to be one of the twelve. So now we have Satan who entered into Judas as one of the twelve. And what does "of Simeon" mean when referring to Judas? We're going to find out about all of this. Murder is the crime of Satan in Genesis 3 because he has murdered The Woman. But back to the seed of the Woman and what must now transpire between the seed of the Woman and the seed of the serpent, Satan. Many don't know that Judas is that seed. So, how is this the right discission to have Satan as one of the disciples? We're dealing with the seed of Satan hurting God, and why that is revealed to Satan and the entire fallen and unfallen Angelic realm. God is letting them, and all of us, know that He can be hurt. We go now to the garden, recorded in Luke 22:39-46, where Christ is being hurt. Most commentaries have this account completely wrong. Our pastor clears that up. He clears a lot up having to do with this passage. And he clears up many errors with what transpires in the Garden of Eden. Are these two gardens the same location? Because there are many, many things that are types with the garden of Eden and the garden of Gethsemane. There's much more to this sermon. The ending is great. We get a really good talk on just how bad Calvinism actually is. So, get out your note taking device, press play, and enjoy the lecture. Welcome to the advanced class.
Though people often consider biblical genealogies to be boring, this genealogy in Genesis 5 contains plenty of useful information that we often ignore to our shame. People really did live hundreds of years back before the Flood. And the numbers of years listed in this "chrono-genealogy" actually takes on incredible significance, because it shows that even if there happened to have been gaps in the list of names, there was no gap in the timeline itself. God's Word is always to be trusted, and His promises will always come to pass, even if they don't turn out the way we thought they would or as quickly as we hoped they might.
The story of the first murder actually contains much more important information in it for understanding Scripture than it may first seem. Cain, the literal seed of the woman, actually becomes the first fulfillment of the seed of the serpent in a spiritual sense, attacking and killing his more righteous brother. We can learn lessons here about taking mastery over our sinful nature, both for believers through the power of the Holy Spirit, and for children to be taught this by their parents. And is there any more common question, among believers and skeptics alike, than where did Cain get his wife? The information to answer that question, like so many other questions, is contained right here in these early chapters of Genesis.
Many say there's no more important passage in the entire Old Testament than Genesis Chapter 3, and especially v.15 which provides the protoevangelion, the first presentation of the concept of the gospel message, that the Lord would send a deliverer to rescue humanity from sin. But in order to rightly understand the gospel, we have to rightly understand the bad news, and this chapter is filled with bad news: bad news for the man, bad news for the woman, and bad news for the serpent. If you want to know why life is filled with painful toil, why male/female relationships are filled with conflict, and why the children of the devil attack the children of God, you need to grasp this chapter. The Bible has the answers to all of the most fundamental questions about life, and many more answers as well.
