Sermons on New Covenant

Pentecost Part 3

THE NEW TESTAMENT TABERNACLE OF WITNESS Numbers 11:29 (NLT) Moses replied . . . “I wish that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit upon them all!” Acts 1:8 (GNT) When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power, and you will be witnesses for me . . . . to the ends of the earth. In the Old Testament God had the “Tabernacle of Witness.” The Tabernacle was…

THE TWO TREES OF KNOWLEDGE In the Old Testament, God’s “Spirit” rested over the Ark of the Covenant; leading Israel out of the wilderness into God’s promises. The Ark of the Covenant symbolizes the heart of a believer. Jeremiah 31:33 (NLT) “This is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their…

THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT God’s law was never the standard for salvation. God’s law is the standard for personal freedom. Romans 13:8-10 (LBP) If you are loving others you are measuring up to the standard that God’s law has always been seeking . . . . If you really love, you will measure up to the whole law without even thinking about it. Jesus saves us, the Holy Spirit fills us, the Father’s love frees us. Romans 5:5 (CEV)…

THE LAW OF FREEDOM Matthew 5:17 (NIV) “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish [to do away with, deprive of force, annul, or discard] them but to fulfill them.” “Fulfill,” comes from the Greek root “plḗrēs” meaning, “being full of the presence of the Lord (and His provisions), to take possession of one’s heart, and to make complete in every particular.” Jesus didn’t come to remove God’s…

THE TWO LAWS OF THE BIBLE Legalism abuses God’s law. It says, “Do this or God won’t love you.” A legalist’s favorite verse is: Psalm 7:11 (CEB) God is a righteous judge, a God who is angry at evil every single day. The legalist uses “God’s law” to manipulate and control others for personal gain. The verse they don’t want you to know is: Romans 3:23-25 (NLT) All have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet now God…

Truth Over Trend Part 2

SATAN’S PATH OF DECEPTION 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (MSG) Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. All Scripture is God-breathed and is valuable . . . – CJB Error begins when we start devaluing parts of Scripture. 1. Devalue the Old Testament. Why devalue it? Because we’re now under…

Truth Over Trend Part 1

THE BIBLE IS ALIVE 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (MSG) Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. In order to get to know God, you have to get to know your Bible. John 1:1-5 (NIV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word…

The Prince of Peace

THE PRINCE OF PEACE We sing Christmas songs and get Christmas cards about peace and joy, but most people have never experienced that peace, or are living in that joy. Luke 2:13-14 (NIV) Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” It’s NOT peace on earth; it’s peace in YOU! John 14:27 (TLB) I am…

Real Christianity Part 1

Connecting with God I want to start this series with three “big” questions: Am I experiencing what I should experience with God? Are my prayers being answered? Am I getting the results I should in my walk with God? All these things find fulfillment in a relationship with God. Real Christianity is experiencing God, seeing answers to prayers, and getting results, but religion gets in the way. Mark 7:7-8 (AMP) In vain (fruitlessly and without profit) do they worship Me,…

Cross To The Throne Part 6

The Ascension of Jesus Step 1: Jesus conquered our emotional conditions. Step 2: Jesus conquered our physical conditions. Step 3: Jesus conquered our spiritual conditions. When Jesus finished everything necessary for your salvation on Earth, He then secured salvation in Heaven. Jesus becomes your High Priest and applies His blood to Heaven’s Mercy Seat. Hebrews 4:14 (NIV) Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to…

CROSS TO THE THRONE Step 3: Jesus conquered our spiritual conditions. Our spiritual condition was comprised of (1) the power of sin, (2) satan’s authority, (3) and the power of death.
