Hebrews

Let’s open God’s word again to Hebrews 6.  We opened the can up far enough last week to let out lots of worms.  And I thought it not good to move on past this particular passage without trying to clarify a little bit of what we learned.  So for those of you who have handy-dandy magnifying glasses, what I have done, is I have given you the content...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Ark of Salvation and the Covenant with Noah

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part II

Genesis 6:9-22

The Ark of Salvation and the Covenant with Noah

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Genesis 6. We have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. We have seen his special favor towards man highlighted in Genesis 2. We have come to the saddest moment in human history in Genesis, chapter 3, with the fall...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  As you will recall in our study of Matthew 16 and the first 12 verses of this passage, we see Jesus rebuke the Pharisees and the scribes and warn His disciples against their teaching.  And then in verses 13 through 20, we see a confession by Peter which represents the view of...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to open with me to Genesis 1.  We read the passage last week, and we will look at it again.  In Genesis 1 we will focus on verse 24 and following.    

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”...

Hebrews

 If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 6.  As we have said, Hebrews 1 and 2 emphasize that Jesus is superior to the angels.  In Hebrews 3, after warning us against an unbelieving heart, the author reminds us that Jesus is superior even to Moses.  In Hebrews 4, especially beginning in verse 14, the author of Hebrews reminds us that...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

A World of Corruption and God's Singular Grace

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part 1

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 6. We have seen God's glorious work of creation in Genesis, chapter 1. We have seen the covenant established with the crown of God's creation in Genesis, chapter 2. We have seen the fall of man in Genesis, chapter 3. We have seen the consequences of the fall in the life of Adam's...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew 16.  As we've already noted, Matthew 15 through 17 proves a turning point in the gospel of Matthew.  In those passages not only the leaders of the people of Israel but the crowds themselves reject the Lord Jesus Christ.  It's not that they have bad thoughts about Him, it's not that they openly oppose...

If you have your Bibles, please open to Genesis 1:24 as we read God's word.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Godly Line

Sin, Death, and Salvation (The Effects of Sin in the World)

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 5. We have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. We've seen His special favor toward mankind recounted in Genesis 2. We've come to the saddest moment in human history in Genesis 3. The doctrinal point of that passage, of course, is to show in the words of the Apostle Paul...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  As we have already seen, Matthew 15, 16, and 17, the central chapters in the gospel of Matthew, record a turning point in the ministry of Christ.  The crowds continue to follow Him.  But now even the crowds openly reject His message and His claims to be Messiah.  They continue wanting...

The study of Covenant Theology is a topic vital to pastoral ministry and, frankly, to Christian ministry of any kind.  And so I am convinced that the time that you put into your study will be well spent.  It will pay not only you dividends but the people of God whom you serve dividends for years to come.  Let’s hear God’s word in Hebrews chapter 6, we’ll begin...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 5.  Hebrews 5, let’s review briefly.  You remember the argument of the book so far.  Over and over the superiority of Christ has been set forth.  Christ is superior to the angels (Hebrews 1 and 2).  Christ is superior to Moses (Hebrews 3).  Christ is superior to Joshua (Hebrews 4).  And then finally...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 15.  Last week as we were looking at Matthew 15: 21 through 28, we commented that 15:21 begins a new section in Jesus' ministry.  Scholars of the gospel call this the retirement ministry where He draws away from Galilee and ministers in Gentile territory for a while, ministering to His disciples and to...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 5 and we will begin in the very first verse.  As we have studied the Book of Hebrews together, we have seen in chapters 1 and 2 the theme emphasized that Christ is superior to the angels.  In chapter 3 we learned that Christ is superior to even Moses, the great lawgiver of...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I'd  invite you to turn with me to Matthew 15.  We're in Matthew 15, and I'd like to direct your attention to  verse 21.  Verse 21 begins a new segment in Jesus' ministry.  The great Galilean ministry is done.  It ends in verse 20 of chapter 15.  And now Jesus enters into a distinctively Gentile  territory.  He is now in the region of...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 4 again as we continue with the study in this book.  We will look at a very short segment, but a rich segment.  It will be hard to do justice to all that are in these three sentences.  Hebrews 4 beginning in verse 14:  Hear God’s holy word:

Hebrews 4:14-16

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Beginnings of Culture

The Two Seeds (The Spread of Sin into the World)

In Genesis, chapter 4 we have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. Specifically the creation of Adam and Eve and the covenant relationship that God established with them in Genesis 2. We have seen that sad picture of the fall in Genesis 3 and in our study of the first half of Genesis 4, we've already begun to see the effects of the fall...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 15. Last week we came to Matthew 15 and we've already noted that in the first 20 verses of this chapter we have one of those glorious teaching opportunities that the Lord Jesus was given by the Pharisees and scribes. For they had come to Him attacking the practice of His disciples and...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 4, and we will begin in verse 11.  Last week we looked at verses 1-10 of this great chapter and in reviewing we said that whereas Hebrews 1 and 2 focused on Jesus’ superiority over the angels, that Hebrews 3 looked at  Christ’s superiority to Moses.  And the comparison between Moses and Christ...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Reaping the Whirlwind

Gracious Spirit, Dwell with Me

The Two Seeds (The Spread of Sin into the World)

Please turn in your Bibles to Genesis 4 as we continue our study in the foundations of the faith. We have seen God's glorious work of creation accounted in Genesis 1. We've seen more specifically the special relationship established between the Lord and Adam in Genesis 2 and the stipulations of the covenant of works in Genesis 3. We have seen that fellowship disrupted, and really from Genesis...
