The Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers

Tuesday October 10, 2017 Matthew Text: Matthew 21:33-46 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / / Matthew Passages: Matthew 21:33-46

The Lord did everything for the Israelites. After all the He did for them they rejected Him. Therefore the kingdom was taken from them and given to the Gentiles. The Lord plan of salvation is not the type of plan we would come up with. Nevertheless having seen it we rejoice in it.

WE RECEIVE BY HIS GRACE WHAT WE DO NOT DESERVE We have no chance if we come before His throne demanding what we think is right and what we think He might owe to us. For we deserve nothing, but if we admit this and come on the basis of His grace we receive everything.

Taste and See that the Lord Is Good

Tuesday September 12, 2017 Revelation Text: Revelation 10:8-11 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / Revelation Passages: Revelation 10:8-11

The word of God is sweet to the taste but bitter in the stomach. The Word pronounces judgement on our sins and we don't like that bitter feeling of judgement in our stomach. But it also tells us of forgiveness through Jesus Christ and is therefore sweet to our mouth.

Christ is the Rock on Which We Stand

Monday August 28, 2017 Matthew Text: Matthew 16:13-20 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / / / / / / / / Matthew Passages: Matthew 16:13-20

The focus of this passage is Jesus not Peter. It is Jesus and what Peter says about him that is the foundation of the Church. The Church stands because it is built on this truth that Jesus is the Son of the Living God. This truth is not something of man, but this is the declaration of the Father that He has revealed to Peter and us. Jesus also then makes a declaration, that the gates of heaven are open.

God So Loved the WORLD

Monday August 21, 2017 Matthew Text: Matthew 15:22-28 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / / Matthew Passages: Matthew 15:22-28

This means that all people are saved by grace through faith, regardless of ethnicity, gender, nationality, language, cultural heritage, profession, church affiliation, or any other man made division. In the Old Testament the Lord commanded the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanites, and yet even then those Canaanites who repented were saved and those Israelites who did not believe were condemned. So also Jesus condemns the Israelites because of their unbelief andwickedness but saves this repentant Canaanite woman by Grace through faith. For with the Lord there is no partiality.

Tuesday August 15, 2017 Matthew Text: Matthew 14:22-33 Speaker: Festival: Tags: / / Matthew Passages: Matthew 14:22-33

It is not possible to explain away this miracle. You might hallucinate seeing a man walking on the water, but you certainly can’t hallucinate walking on the water yourself. Peter is either lying or this really happened as it says. The power that held Peter up did not come from his faith but from Jesus. Peter begins to sink not because Jesus’ power was weakened by his unbelief, but because Jesus used this opportunity as the ultimate object lesson. In desperation, in weakness, Peter cries to the Lord, and the Lord saves him.
