The Ark Drank The Cup! The Ark Drank The Cup! How does God hiding Himself tell us the How of salvation?
With the conversation between the Godhead at Gethsemane there are incredible mysteries. And these are amazing. You have the will of God and the will of God... seemingly different wills but they are actually the same. The Son does not have remorse for having to drink the cup. God is longsuffering and willing that all would be saved, 2 Peter 3:9. The God/man is suffering, but not in the way that we might suspect. God in the flesh is suffering at what He will do by drinking the cup. But the will of the Son becomes the will of the Father. Christ has three phases. Before the cross He is in the Prophet state and the will exhibited here is that of His office at that time. The sorrow of Christ is the evidence of that fact. He is reprising the action of the first Adam, the sorrow for his fallen bride. Now comes the Ark of the Covenant. It's designed by God to display the God/man. And pastor reviews what he has already taught on this. The churches strip away the Gold covering of the Ark. Jesus says, If you don't have My Deity, you are vomit, Revelation 3:16. Christ hid Himself while in His earthly ministry, just like the Ark has coverings including the thick vale when it is taken out. But how does the Ark being covered and Christ hiding Himself show us salvation? Belief of God is something hidden and not out on display. The Ark drinks the Cup. We talk about what happens at the cross and what happens when He is in the tomb and what happens right after His resurrection. There's more to the sermon, so now it's up to you to get a notepad and open your TextBook and press play. Note: We might broadcast again in three weeks, but we will be off for a couple of months after that.
Luke 22:35-44 – Armed for the Battle (1) – Sermon Outline Intro: Christ is about to be betrayed, and He tells His disciples to arm themselves for the betrayal and battles ahead. The key armor, however, is not physical, but spiritual, watchfulness in prayer, not swords. Need: Christ must lay down His life to pay for sin, and calls His disciples to prepare for the battle against evil by arming themselves in prayers to strengthen their faith to overcome temptation and trust in Him. Theme: God's People and Kingdom grow by relying upon His strength to overcome evil. Christ must be crucified, so His Apostles must be armed in God's strength to stand by Him in faith. Christ draws strength from the Father in prayer to face the cup of His wrath on the cross.
This intensely personal psalm is the celebratory account of God's grace and mercy in loving response to the psalmist's plea for help when all hope was lost and death itself seemed certain. Our great God is gracious, righteous, and merciful, and gives help to the helpless: He delights to pour out abundant, undeserved, and purposeful mercy when we cry out to Him."Help for the Helpless" is a line from the hymn "Abide with Me." And, as we walk through Psalm 116 we will see the application of that great hymn from this great Psalm. I. What God did for the Psalmist (vv1-11) ---A.

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.
The Gospel of the Kingdom - Message 106 - Whitewashed Tombs - Matthew 23:23-28. Jesus condemns the religious leaders as false teachers and hypocrites and demonstrates the dangerous beliefs and practices that are leading them to judgment. In these 3 woes He focuses on the drastic difference between what they do on the outside and who they are on the inside.
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.
We start out with the Feist Days and which one is associated with the rapture. What is going on in Job 1 with the Angels assembled has direct correlations with Revelation 9. But is there any connectivity between this and where we left off with the Hedge, the kiss, the sop, and the cup? Oh yes. God drinks the cup and God dips the sop. And we bring in Simeon the Pharisee. That ties directly into the Simeon prophecies, where Jesus did not need Simeon to carry the crossbeam. And then there's the old man Simeon waiting for the Christ child. There's much more of course... but you'll have to listen with your finger poised over the pause button if you're taking notes. We get back to the kiss by comparing kisses, particularly the kiss from the lady that has her sins forgiven. So, we're going to be laying foundation here and it's much more complexed than we can imagine. We go to the Passover Lamb... There's four of them. We must compare them and find out what's different and what's the same. No one can kill this Passover Lamb except the Passover Lamb. But the immediate task is to evaluate the dipping of the sop. Why is God honoring Judas? The preeminent name of Jesus is Salvation. The Hand that delivers us is handing the sop to Judas. He reaches His hand down to us, and we take it... using our free will. And Judas, with Satan inside of him, delivers Christ with a kiss. How does the sop fit with predestination? It doesn't. Jesus says you will know the truth and the truth will make you free. God is the God of freedom, not the God of no free will. Predestination is forced slavery! You'll get a lot more out of this by listening... obviously. So, press play.
