When Christ Got Really Mad

Date
01-31-2016
Pastor James Zaebst

Christ Jesus was a very forgiving and long-suffering man.
He believed in turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:38-39).
He preached infinite forgiveness (Matthew 18:21-22).
He certainly live our His convictions (Luke 23:33-34).

The Bible records two occasions where Christ got as mad as He could be and He offered no forgiveness and no apology for His extreme anger on these two occasions.

Remaining Willfully Ignorant

Date

Pastor James Zaebst

Proverbs 1:20-22 - Many people willfully remain ignorant.  They steadfastly refuse to put forth the mental effort it takes to become thoughtful and well informed.

God's will for US is that we could always be learning (Proverbs 15:14)

God has blessed US with a tremendous power of intellect.  It is obviously His intent that we put it to use.

God wants US to investigate His way to see if it is good (Psalm 34:8).
Make an intellectual comparison between it and the world. (Ephesians 2:2 and 3).

The Gift of Christ

Date
12-13-2015
Pastor James Zaebst

Christ Jesus is described as God’s “unspeakable gift” (2 Corinthians 9:15.  The Gift of 

Christ is impossible to fully fathom or describe.

Christ Jesus was given by God out of His love for us (John 3:16).  God demonstrated 

His love by the Gift of Himself (Romans 5:8).

We give gifts to those who love us (Matthew 5:46).

God sent the Greatest Gift the world has ever known, and He freely gave that Gift to 

those who had walked away from Him through sin, rebellion, and indifference (Romans 5:6).

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

Date
12-06-2015
Pastor James Zaebst

To fully understand God’s Word it must be rightly divided. We divide between prophecy (Acts 3:21) and mystery (Ephesians 3:2-5). Prophecy concerns God’s plan for Israel and the Earth and has been “spoken by the prophets since the world began.” Mystery concerns God’s plan for the body church and the heavens and “in other ages was not made known” (kept a secret) To find God’s plans for the church the Body of Christ, one must seek God’s Word for us and about us through Paul (Romans 11:13 and 1 Timothy 2:7).
