Acts Series | Acts 15:1-21 | Defending Doctrine: The First Church Council. While various church councils launched from Nicaea in 325, technically, it was not the first council that met. The very first meeting of church leaders to discuss false teaching happened in approximately 49 AD in Acts chapter 15, to defend the doctrine of faith in Christ alone.
5ola (The Five Solas)
Joel Gilbert • Sermon • • 14 views • 39:11
Who is Jesus? Many have been trying to define exactly who Jesus is. Who is the Christ? Even when Jesus was on the earth, people questioned who he was. Stephen Wellum, in his book Christ Alone suggests several questions: “Who is he who is born the son of David, the son of Abraham ( Mt. 1:1 )”? “Who is…
Our righteousness is as filthy rags, and the blood of the Lamb alone can clean our robes. We must not simply dip our toe in it, but fully submerge ourselves in the blood of Jesus Christ!
Something doesn't sound quite right with that heading does it? Listen as Paul recalls the birth of the Reformation when Martin Luther nailed is 95 point thesis to the door of the Catholic Church in Germany. Learn about the fundamental doctrines contained in the 5 points of the reformation, with one addition.
Jesus seemed defeated on the cross, but in reality, He conquered. As we endure being persecuted for our faith, not compromising our witness, we're never more like the Lamb than we are in those moments. If we're in the Lamb's Book of Life, we must be prepared to be treated like He was... and meet it with faith and endurance, like He did. We must faithfully endure to the glory of God!
Who are the two witnesses described in Revelation 11? Will Israel be restored in the last days? The early Church was fueled by reading of the Word, prayer, and fellowship. The Holy Spirit still moves through supernatural works, though these works lead to false idol worship without the knowledge of God! We must first know Him. And He must be the goal of our existence, at any cost!
Pastor Josh examines Revelation 11, and finds many connections between it and Psalms 1 and 2. Both Psalms make references to the life and ministry of Jesus, focusing on the crucifixion. Revelation 11 mirrors the events and warnings predicted in Psalms 1 and 2. Our sins put Jesus on the cross, but He is willing to make peace with us if we submit to Him and "kiss the Son". If we don't, we will perish. We're either a tree, or we're chaff. All men are sinners, and Christ has come to save sinners!
Book of Romans
We can learn a lot from the Jews. For one, they were trusting in a false religion and by doing so, rejected the very Messiah who they had been longing for. There are many today who are doing the same. How should we respond? We pray. We pray with a heavy burden for those we love because they are rejecting Christ - the One Who came to seek and to save the lost.
Book of Romans
We continue to travel through Romans chapter 10, and once again look at the contrast between righteousness through faith and righteousness through works of the Law. Before being too hard on Israel for not seeing it, we must be mindful that many today are just as blind.
Book of Romans
Jesus Christ Himself was the stumbling block that the Apostle Paul references regarding the Jewish people's rejection of the Messiah. Their rejection of Christ, however, reveals a very serious matter; they rejected the simplicity of the Gospel. No works of man will ever be the catalyst for God extending His hand of salvation toward the sinner, as everything has been provided through Jesus Christ. What does this mean for people today who rely on their religious observances?
Pastor Josh digs deeper into the meaning and structure of Revelation 7:1-8, and how chapter 7 connects to its surrounding chapters. Though we look forward to eternity in God's presence, he will, in his sovereignty, hold back his wrath on the earth for a time, as he allows all of his children to be brought into his kingdom.
Book of Romans
Many are okay with God being Who He is according to their standard, but they don't want God to be Who He is according to His standard. God's attribute of His sovereignty is revealed through Scripture and although it is easy to understand, it is sometimes hard to swallow.
