How can we learn Scriptures so we remember them? Listen to this lesson to see that we only learn through hearing truth taught over and over again. We need to have constant reminders so we don't forget what God has done for us. Find out how important memorization of portions of Scripture is and ways to accomplish this. Hear Pastor Dean describe a luncheon he attended with Mike Pompeo today and a "book by Voddie Baucham" (https://smile.amazon.com/Fault-Lines-Movement-Evangelicalisms-Catastrophe/dp/1684511801/) that he presented to him.
Video clip taken from main sermon - God only saves sinners, on Matthew 1. Context - It concerns the ancestry or generation of Jesus Christ according to the flesh. Holy Scripture clearly reveals the dangerous sin of self confidence within the oldest children within a family. The eldest child within a family tends to be more of a perfectionist and normally more self confident than siblings, for obvious reasons. This clip really is to help Christian parents understand this truth and to cultivate within their eldest children an attitude of dependance rather than independence. The eldest child normally likes to be a leader but if they are to follow Christ, they must be led by Him and learn to serve by grace. The Lord Jesus himself sheds light on this, in Luke 22:26 - "but he that is greatest among you, let him be as THE YOUNGER; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. Elder children therefore need to know that it is not enough to just be dutiful, they must be Born Again in Christ and come to saving faith by Grace and not works. Christs ancestry according to the flesh came mostly from the younger, what the world considers the weaker, which teaches us that God does not look on the outward show of strength...
On furlough from Zambia, Pastor Voddie Baucham joins us and speaks on the idea of forgiveness. People have a wrong definition of this word and because of that, they fail to practice what scripture commands. Living a life of forgiveness is vital for the growth of a believer.
In his final message as an Elder at GfBC, Pastor Voddie encourages the body to remember that we are to suffer for the sake of the Gospel. Our commitment must always be, first and foremost, to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the only thing that will sustain us during our lives.
Voddie Baucham (www.VoddieBaucham.org), the preaching pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas (outside of Houston), grew up in south central Los Angeles in a single parent home. In a chat with guest host Adam McManus (www.AdamMcManus.com), he reflects on his own personal experience and his knowledge of Scripture as he discusses the counsel he gave to his 7 sons in light of Michael Brown's death and the subsequent race riots in Ferguson. Voodoo Baucham has also written a recent column on the subject which has been read by 1 million people (http://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/thoughts-on-ferguson). Here are three compelling quotes: •"For many years, I blamed 'the system' or 'the man'. However, I have come to realize that it was no more 'the system' when white cops pulled me over than it was 'the system' when a black thug robbed me at gunpoint. It was sin!" •"Rest assured, I do believe there are systemic issues plaguing black men. These issues are violence, criminality, and immorality, to name a few. And all of these issues are rooted in and connected to the epidemic of fatherlessness...It is as common as morning dew, and as overlooked as dust under a refrigerator. Where are the marches against this travesty? Where are the protestors who demand better?" •"The FBI homicide stats from 2012 reveal that there were 2,648 blacks murdered. Of those, 2,412 were murdered by members of their own ethnic group. Thus, if I am going to speak out about anything, it will be black-on-black crime; not blue-on-black."

Dr. Luke and Matthew "Barnabas" Graham discuss the fact that born again believers should not be stagnant in their faith and not growing in the knowledge of Christ. They play contrasting audio clips from Voddie Bauchaum, Steve Lawson, and Joel Osteen and it isn't easy to figure out that one is not like the others.
Summary: reliable collection of historical documents written by eyewitnesses, during the lifetimes of other eyewitnesses reports supernatural events that fulfill specific prophecies authors claim the text is divine, not human, in origin
At the end of Revelation chapter seven is a description of the Glory of Heaven. That Glory is not the pearly gates or jewel-studded streets, but the same Person of whom people on earth were so afraid of in chapter six: the Lion and the Lamb.
At the end of Revelation chapter six is the all-important question, "Who can stand?". Chapter seven provides us a thorough answer to that question, and it culminates in these two verses. Dr. Baucham reiterates the gravity of this question, and calls us to examine ourselves to see if we will be able to stand on the Day of His Coming.
Last week we learned about the 144,000 people that John heard numbered in the first part of Revelation chapter 7. This week we learn about another group of people: the great multitude that no one can number. But wait, are they different groups of people? Are you sure? You may be surprised what we find as we carefully examine this passage of Scripture.
One of the most famous numbers in the Bible is 144,000. With it comes difficulty; is it literal or figurative? It is crucial we understand this rightly, for it will allow us to answer the pivotal question at the end of chapter six: "Who can stand?"
There are three questions we must ask to understand how to shepherd my family. I. What is the first command given by God to man in the Bible? [Gen 1:28] II. Why The Order of the Ten Commandments? [Ex 20:12] III. What Can We Learn from the Shema? [Deut 6:4-9] What truth was especially applied to my heart today? How will I live this truth out this week?
Dr. Baucham wraps up our study of Daniel with an exposition of Daniel 12. We all have presuppositions about the end of the age, many of which, though extremely popular, are grossly unbiblical. Dr. Baucham challenges those presuppositions and spotlights the underlying principle most important to glean from this difficult passage of scripture.
Daniel 11 is a long prophecy of two kingdoms warring with each other for dominance; seemingly irrelevant to us since there is almost no mention of God's people. And yet that fact points us to a very important principle as it relates to the unfolding of redemptive history.
While Ephesians 4 appears at first glance to be about relationships within our immediate family, a closer look will reveal that this passage is actually about our relationships with others in the Body of Christ.
10 Books that Impacted World Ten Most Impacting Books in the Last 100 Years for the Christian Worldview
Humanism has virtually killed the Christian faith in Europe, but a faithful remnant made it back into the war of the worldviews over the last two generations. Our backs are against the wall, but we are fighting back and gaining ground! Here, Kevin Swanson points to the ten most impacting books written by Christians in the last 100 years, that represent a return to Christian thought in the war of the worldviews. The purpose of this program is to give some honor to men who went before us in the 1900s. These are the thinkers that introduced or re-introduced the ideas of worldview, antithesis, and distinctive Christian thought while humanism was eroding the foundations, destroying the family, and fragmenting the culture in the west.
There is a great temptation to get deeply embedded in speculation about the specifics of Daniel's vision of the four beasts. But as Dr. Baucham reminds us, Daniel chapter 7 is not about any of those four kingdoms; it is about the One Kingdom, "that shall be an everlasting kingdom," the Kingdom of the Ancient of Days.
Nobody has a problem seeing Christ as the meek, gentle lamb of God. However, we do have a great deal of trouble seeing Him as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Dr. Baucham helps us to see how important it is that Christ is a righteous judge who will both condemn the wicked and vindicate His elect.
When John was taken up into the throne room of heaven, he was able to see worship from a different perspective. In our age of man-centered worship, we desperately need that change of perspective when it comes to our worship of God.
The charge against the church at Laodicea was that they were lukewarm. Dr. Baucham provides the historical context necessary for understanding what that statement means. He then makes the case that of all the letters to the seven churches, this one has the most direct relevance to the church in America today.
The charge against the church at Sardis was that, in spite of their good reputation, they were dead. Unfortunately, if we are honest, this is what we usually wish for our culture, our churches, and our kids. How do we approach these things without simply polishing the outside of the cup?
