Well, everybody knows Aaron’s not here. We’re going to be doing a, a review of the first year of Jesus’s life, trying to make it through as many of these questions as possible Way. We’ll get this good review going. Let’s begin this morning with the prayer, our Lord in heaven. We thank you for this opportunity. We have to come here and study your word.
And we ask that we glean as much information as possible and soak it up like sponges and be able to use it to further your work and your, and your kingdom. We ask that you be with all of those that are gone now, traveling for the holidays up them to have a safe trip and journey home. And we ask that you be with all of those on our prayer list that are sick and ailing,
and you’d be with them and bring them back to their full health. If it be your will. And thank you again for your son who died on the cross and your son’s name. Amen. All right. So he told me, read the scripture, then read the question and let you guys answer. So that’s how we’re going to do it. Matthew chapter one,
verse two, Abraham, Isaac, and Isaac begat, Jacob and Jacob begat Judah and his brothers, Which was the son of Methuselah, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of<inaudible>, which was the son of Canaan, which was the son of<inaudible>, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam,
which was the son of God. So who was the, what was the first man? And Luke three 37 through 38 mentioned in Jesus’s genealogy. I think, I think that he’s looking for Adam. Yeah, because Adam is the first man mentioned and the genealogy here. So I don’t know why we read 37, 38. It starts from the, from the beginning or from the end and goes all the way to the beginning and Luke.
So, alright, Matthew, one 16 is where I’m going to next. Matthew, one 16 and Jacob, we got Joseph, the husband of Mary of whom was born. Jesus, who is called Christ, named the father and mother of Jesus. Mary and Joseph. Yes. And then Luke three 23. Yeah. Jesus himself began to be about 30 years of age being,
as we’re supposed the son of Joseph, which was the son of heli. How old was Jesus when he began his earthly ministry? 30. Yes. Correct. All right, Matthew, one six is where I’m going next. Matthew one six And Jesse begat David, the King and David, the King begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah was named the second King of Israel who was in the genealogy of Jesus.<inaudible> David.
David was the second King of Israel. First one was Saul. So I think it’s kind of a tricky question, but it’s David, David was the second King who was in the genealogy of Christ. David or David was Saul was not in the genealogy of Christ, but he was the first King. I don’t know. It’s confusing. It’s either David or Solomon the answer.
All right, it’s a Matthew. One, two is next. Oh, we read this one already. Abraham, Isaac and Isaac. We got Jacob and Jacob, you got Judah and his brethren. And then Luke three 34, Luke three 34, which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham,
which was the son of Thora, which was the son of nature. So name the man of great faith through whom God built the Jewish nation. Abraham. Yes. Why are some of John 20, 30 through 31, John chapter, 20, 30 and 31 and many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.
But these are written that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and that believing you might have life through his name. So why are, why are some of the events of Jesus’s early earthly life written? And we might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and that believing we might have life through his name.
You turn a life, basically. We’re just quoting verse 31 for the answer. What was the profession of Matthew and Luke? What was, does anybody know profession of Matthew tax collector and Luke physician? And what nationality was each man? Yeah. Matthew was a Galilean and Luke was a Grecian. He was from, he was from Greek or he was Greek from Greece.
All right, Luke, one five. There was in the days of Herod the King of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias of the chorus of a Baya. And his wife was the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth. So who was King of Judea? Yeah. Who was King of Judea? When John the Baptist and Jesus were conceived. Yes,
Luke one, five. And Luke, we just read Luke one five. So I’m not going to read it again. And then Luke one 27 to a Virgin and spouse to a man whose name was Joseph of the house of David and the Virgin Virgin’s name was Mary. So name the father and mother of John. The Baptist. Yes. Zacharias and Elizabeth.
Elizabeth and Zacharias were let’s turn to Luke one seven. I have 17 pages of these questions to go through. So I’m going to try to go a little bit fast. And they had no child because that Elizabeth was barren and they both were now well stricken in years. So it was Zachariah and Elizabeth were young middle-aged or old when their only child John was born old.
Yes. Old, see Luke one nine, according to the customer of the priest office, his lot was to burn incense. When he went into the temple of the Lord, where was that? Kariah when the angel Gabriel told him he would have a son was in the temple of the Lord. And then Luke one 26. And in the six month,
the angel Gabriel Was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth. So where was, where was Mary at this time? Nazareth. Yes. And Luke one 17. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias to turn the hearts of the fathers, to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the, just to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
According to the angel, speaking to Zechariah, what would be John’s work to prepare a way for the Lord. Yes, correct. And Jesus Luke one 33, and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom. There shall be no end. So what was the purpose of Jesus? According to the angels, speaking to Zechariah, what would be John’s work of Jesus anyway,
Jesus, he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom. There shall be no in it. It’s, it’s basically just quoting the, the scripture there. All right. Luke, one 20 and behold thou shall be done and not able to speak until the day that these things shall be performed because I’ll believe it’s not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
So why was decoration made mute? Yeah, because he, because he did not believe that the angel Gabriel’s words, that’s why, how many months pregnant was Elizabeth when Mary conceived the son of God, Luke one 35 and 36, six months. Yes. Correct. All right, Luke one 41. And it came to pass that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary,
the babe leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy ghost. So what happened when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary? Yep. And she was filled with the Holy ghost and described Mary’s reply, Luke four, one 46 through 55. And Mary said, my soul does magnify the Lord. And my spirit has rejoiced in God. My savior for he hath regarded the lowest state of his handmaiden for behold,
from henceforth. All generations shall call me blessed for he, that is mighty has done to me. Great things. And Holy is his name. And his mercy is on them. That fear him from generation to generation, excuse me. He has shown strength with his arm. He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their seats and exalted them of low degree.
He has filled the hungry with good things and the rich, he has sent empty away. He has hoping his servant Israel and remembrance of his mercy. And as he speak to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever. So how would you describe Mary’s response? Yeah. Yeah. She was a humble servant of God. Praising his awesomeness basically is what I put.
All right, Luke, one 56 and Mary abode with her about three months and returned to her house. So how long did Mary stay with Elizabeth? Three months. I feel like I’m just answering the question and then asking you to repeat it to me. On what day was Elizabeth and Zechariah to name their son, Luke one 59 on the eighth day?
Correct. And it came to pass that on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child and called them Zacharias. All right, Luke one 63 and 64. And he asked for a writing table and wrote, seeing his name is John. And they marveled all and his mouth was open immediately and his tongue loose and he speak and praise God. So Zachariah prophesied that his son would give people knowledge.
Oh, sorry. Wrong question. When could Zachariah speak? Yeah. When his son was named John, as soon as he got the name, he was able to speak again. All right, Luke, one 77 To give knowledge of salvation on do as people buy the remission of their sins, Zechariah prophesied that his son would give the people knowledge of what salvation.
Correct. All right, Luke one 80 and the child grew and waxed strong in spirit and was in the deserts until the day of his showing unto Israel. So as he grew older, where did John live until the time for him to appear publicly, Excuse me. In the desert and the desert wilderness who wrote each of the four gospels. That’s an easy question.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I went over all these questions last night and barely had to look any of them up as I’m. Now the answer is all right, Matthew, one 20. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream saying Joseph thou, son of David. If you’re not to take unto thee,
Mary thy wife for that, which is conceived in her is of the Holy ghost. Why did Joseph take Mary for his wife? Even though she was already pregnant? Yeah, he was reassured by the angel that it was okay. That she was still a meeting. She was still untouched Matthew one 21. And she shall bring forth a son and shall call his name.
Jesus for, he shall save his people from their sins. So what, and why did the angel instruct Joseph to name the son to be born to Mary? Is the answer Jesus, but why? That’s correct. All right. Matthew one 22 and 23. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying behold,
a Virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son and they shall call his name. Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us. The old Testament, prophets, prophet, Isaiah at Virgin said a Virgin would have a child whose name would be Emmanuel. Yes. Which means God with us. Yes. All right. Luke, two, four,
and Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem because he was of the house and lineage of David. So why did Joseph and Mary have to leave their home to go to Bethlehem in Judea when Jesus was born?<inaudible> Yeah. Yeah, but also because he was of the house and lineage of David.
Yeah. All right, Luke two seven. And she brought forth her first born son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the end. So where did Jesus Mary lay Jesus after he was born in Bethlehem, in a manger, Tim through 12 Luke, two, 10 through 12. And the angel said unto them fear,
not for behold. I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people for unto you is born this day in the city of David, a savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. What news did the angel give the shepherds outside Bethlehem<inaudible> That the savior was born and how to find him all right,
Luke, two 17 through and 20. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the scene, which was told them concerning this child and the shepherds returned glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen as it was told unto them, after hearing the news and seeing the baby Jesus, what did the shepherds do?<inaudible> And when they had seen it,
they made known abroad to seeing which was told them concerning this child. So they went out, letting everybody know about what they had heard about Jesus, and they also glorify it and praise God in verse 20 and the shepherds returned glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen. Okay. So I’m going to just read now the, all the verses that go with it from each book,
and then we’ll just go through and answer the questions. Instead of me reading each verse for each question, I’m going to be reading Luke chapter two 21 through 38, Luke two 21 through 38. And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
And when the days of her purification, according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, as it is written in the law of the Lord, every male that opened it, the womb shall be called Holy to the Lord and to offer a sacrifice. According to that, which has said in the law of the Lord,
a pair of turtle doves, or two young pigeons and behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simon or Simeon, sorry. And the same man was just end of out waiting for the constellation of Israel. And the Holy ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy ghost that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord,
the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the child, Jesus to do for him after the custom of the law, then took he him up in his arms and blessed God and said, Lord, now let us now thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word through 38, okay. For mine eyes,
I’ve seen nice salvation, which thou has prepared before the face of all people, a light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of thy people, Israel and Joseph, and his mother marveled at all at those things, which were spoken of him and Simeon blessed them and said unto Mary, his mother, behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel and for a sign which shall be spoken against yay.
A sword shall Pierce through that and own soul. Also that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of funnel, and of the TRIBE of Asur. She was of a great age and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow of about four score in four years,
which departed, not from the temple, but served God with fasting and prayers night and day. And she came and she coming in that instant gave them things likewise unto the Lord and speak of him to all of them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. And then we’ll read Matthew chapter two verses one through 12 Matthew chapter two verses one through 12. Now Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea.
In the days of Herod the King behold, there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem saying, where is he? That is born King of the Jews for, we have seen his star in the East and are come to worship him. When Herod the King had heard these things. He was troubled and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together,
he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him in Bethlehem of Judea for thus, it is written by the prophet and thou Bethlehem in the land of Judah are not the least among the princes of Judah for out of these shall come. A governor that shall rule my people. Israel then inherit when he had privily called the wise men,
inquired of them diligently, what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, go and search. Deluging diligently for the young child. And when you have found him, bring me word again, that I might come and worship him. Also, when they had heard the King, they departed and lo the star, which they saw in the East went before them,
till it came and stood over where the young child was when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and fell down and worshiped him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts, gold, and frankincense and myrrh,
and being warned of God in a dream. They, that should not return to Herod. They departed into their own country another way. All right. So how old was Jesus when he was named Eight days old? Same as John. Yup. After Mary’s time of purification, where did Joseph and Mary take Jesus to present him to the Lord and temple in Jerusalem?
Yes. Describe Simeon’s spiritual condition. The Holy spirit had promised Simeon that what events would occur before his death. Yeah. He would see the savior of the Lord, the Christ of the Lord. It was adjust and development. And the goalie, the Holy ghost was upon him. That’s the description of his spiritual condition. What did the aged Ana do at the temple?
Yeah, she fasted and prayed day and night. All right. What news of the Wiseman troubled Herod? Yeah, the King of the Jews was born. And how did the Wiseman know where to find Jesus star in the East? What three gifts did the Wiseman bring? Jesus? Well, the frankincense and myrrh. And just because there were three gifts doesn’t mean there were only three wisemen.
There could have been multiple Wiseman. All right. Let’s do Matthew chapter two verses 13 through 23, Matthew two 13 through 23. I asked him if I could have all of y’all read stuff too. And he said they can’t hear that online. So I have to read everything. I’m sorry, 13 through 23, Matthew chapter two. And when they were departed behold,
the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream saying arise and take the young child and his mother and flee into Egypt and be thou there until I bring the word for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose. He took the young child and his mother by night and departed into Egypt and was there until the death of Herod that it might be fulfilled,
which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying out of Egypt, have I called my son inherited when he saw that he was mocked of the Wiseman was exceeding wroth and sent forth and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem and in all the coasts thereof from two years old and under one, a monster man, according to that, the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men then was fulfilled that,
which was spoken by Jeremiah, the prophet saying, and ramen was there a voice heard lamination and weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and would not be comforted because they are not. But when Herod was dead behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt saying arise and take the young child and his mother and go into the land of Israel for they are dead,
which sought the young child’s life. And he arose and took the young child in his mother and came into the land of Israel. But when he had heard that arch Elias did reign in Judea and the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go further. Notwithstanding being warned of God in a dream. He turned aside to the parts of Galilee and he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth that it might be fulfilled,
which was spoken by the prophets. He shall be called a Nazarene. And then Luke two 39 through 52, Luke chapter two 39 through 52. Cool. And when they had performed all things, according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee to their own city Nazareth. And the child grew and wax strong in the spirit, filled with wisdom.
And the grace of God was upon him. Now, his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. And when he was 12 years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days as they returned the child, Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem and Joseph and his mother knew not of it,
but they supposing him to have been in the company, wins a day’s journey. And they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance and acquaintances. And when they had found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem seeking him. And it came to pass that after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions and all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
And when they saw him, they were amazed and his mother said unto him, son, why has thou thus dealt with us? Behold, thy father. And I have sought the sorrowing. And he said unto them, how is it that she sought me whiskey? Not that I must be about my father’s business. And they understood not the same, which he speak unto them.
And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was subject unto them. But his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. So after the Wiseman left, where did Joseph take? Mary and Jesus down to Egypt? Correct. Why? Because King Herod was seeking to destroy him.
The angel told them that what age children did Herod have killed in Bethlehem area? In the area of Bethlehem two and under, yeah. Why was Jesus called a Nazarene? Yeah, he lived in Nazareth and it was also prophesied that he would be called a Nazareen. How old was Jesus when he went with his parents to Jerusalem? For the feast of the Passover 12.
Yep. When lost on the Jerusalem trip, where did Jesus’s parents? 10 in the temple. Okay. Since Jesus was the son of God, when he was growing up, he a gave the orders in the family, B gave the orders in the family, but he was obedient to his parents or see, was busy with God’s business away from his family circle B.
Yeah. He gave the orders and listened to me, mom and dad. How did Jesus grow in wisdom and stature and favor with God and with man name, the writer of each of the new of each new Testament letter, the letters of the new Testament. Matthew didn’t write any letters, not. He wrote the gospel. So Paul wrote letters. James wrote letters.
Peter wrote letters, James, the son, or the brother of Jesus, not, not the other genes. John wrote letters. And then Jude, the brother of Jesus wrote a letter. Those are the ones that wrote the letters. They tricked us. They went from gospels, the letters on the next one. All right, let’s read Matthew three,
one through 17. And those days came John, the Baptist preaching in the wilderness of Judea and seeing rip pinchy for the kingdom of heaven is at hand for this is he, that was spoken of by the prophet. Asiah saying the voice of one crying in the wilderness prepare you the way of the Lord make his path straight. And the same. John had his Raymond of camel’s hair and a leathern girdle about his loins and his meat was locusts and wild.
Honey then went out with him, Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region around about Jordan and were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, Oh, generation of Vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come bringing forth, therefore fruits meet for repentance.
And think not to say with yourselves within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father for IC and to you that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the ax is lean on unto the roots of the trees. Therefor, every tree which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance,
but he, that cometh after me is mightier than I whose shoes I am not worthy to bear. He shall baptize you with the Holy ghost and with fire, whose fan is in his hand. And he will thoroughly purchase floor and gather his wheat into the garner. But he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. Then come with Jesus from Galilee to Jordan,
under John to be baptized of him. But John, for bad him saying, I have needed to be baptized of thee and comments down to me. And Jesus answering said unto him, suffer it to be. So now for thus, it become us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him and Jesus. When he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water and lo the heavens were opened unto him.
And he saw the spirit of God, descending like a dove and lighting upon him and lo a voice from heaven saying this is my beloved son in whom I am well-pleased. So what old Testament prophet told about the coming of John? The Baptist Isaiah? Yes. Assayas it says in the King James version, it’s the same person described John, the Baptist clothing and food.
Camel’s hair was his clothes with a leather girdle. And what did he eat? Locusts and wild honey. Yes. John the Baptist said his baptism was for what?<inaudible> Repentance. Yes. How lonely did John describe himself as compared to the coming Jesus? Yep. And he wasn’t even worthy to basically tie his shoes or on tie his shoes. What plays did John the Baptist baptized Jesus in Jordan?
Yes. How did the spirit appear at the baptism of Jesus? Like a dove. And what did the father say? Yeah. As a group, the new Testament books, Romans through Jude are called what? I like those trick questions. They just throw in. They want you to, Oh, by the way, this has nothing to do with the life of Christ.
But what are these group of books called? They’re the letters from Romans through Jude. Those are the letters of the new Testament, the epistles. All right. Matthew four, one through 11<inaudible> Excuse me. Then was Jesus led up of the spirit, into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted 40 days and 40 nights,
he was afterward and hungered. And when the tempter came to him, he said, if that will be the son of God command that these stones be made of bread, but he answered and said, it is written, man shall not live by bread alone. But by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God, then the devil tickets him up into a Holy city instead of him in a pin,
on a pinnacle of the temple and Steph unto him, if that will be the son of God, cast myself down for it is written. He shall give his angels charge concerning thee and in their hands. They shall bear thee up lest any at any time that dash thy foot against the stone, Jesus said unto him. It is written again. Thou shall not tempt the Lord,
thy God. Again, the devil take it them up into an exceeding high mountain and show with him, all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them and Seth unto him, all these things, will I give thee, if that will fall down and worship me then said, Jesus, unto him. Get the hint. Satan for it is written.
Now shall worship the Lord, thy God and him only shout they’ll serve. Then the devil leaveth him and behold angels came and ministered unto him. And then John chapter one 29 through 51, John one 29 through 51. The next day, John sees Jesus coming onto him and Seth behold, the lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.
This is he of whom I said after me come at the man, which is preferred before me for he was before me and I knew him not, but that he should be made manifest to Israel. Therefore, am I coming baptizing with water and John bear record saying, I saw the spirit descending from heaven, like a dove and in a boat upon him.
And I knew him not, but th but he, that sent me to baptize with water, the same Seth unto upon whom thou shout, see the spirit, descending and remaining on him. The same as he, which baptizes with the Holy ghost. And I saw in bear record that this is the son of God. Again, the next day after John stood and two of his disciples and looking upon Jesus as he walked with,
he said, behold, the lamb of God, and two disciples heard him speak it, speak, and they follow Jesus. Then Jesus turned and saw them following and said unto them, what Sikhi. They said unto him rabbi, which is to say being interpreted master where dwellest thou. He said unto them come and see. They came and saw where he dwells in a bode with him that day for it was about the 10th hour.
One of the two, which heard John speaking and followed him was Andrew Simon Peter’s brother. He first find it his own brother, Simon and Seth unto him. We have found the Messiah, which is being interpreted the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus be held him, he said that weren’t Simon, the son of Jonah thou shall be called CFUs,
which is by interpretation a stone. The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee and find a Phillip and Seth unto him. Follow me. Now, Philip was of Bethsaida the city of Andrew and Peter, fill it, find it Nathaniel and said unto him. We have found him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets did right? Jesus of Nazareth,
the son of Joseph and Nathaniel said unto him, can there any good thing come out of Nazareth. Phillip said, unto him, come and see Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him and Seth of him, behold in Israel, EIT, indeed. And whom is no guile. Nathaniel said unto him, wince knowest thou me Jesus answered and said unto him. Before that Philip called the,
when that was under the fig tree, I saw the Nathaniel answered and said unto him, rabbi thou art, the son of God. Now aren’t the King of Israel. Jesus answered and said unto him, because I said unto thee, I saw the under the fig tree. Believe us though. Now shout see greater things than these. And he said unto him,
verily, verily. I say unto you hereafter, you shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man. All right. How long did Jesus fast? 40 days and 40 nights. How are you so quiet when you answer name? The three places the devil tempted Jesus First was in the wilderness. Yes. Second was Temptation.
You took him up to the highest pinnacle in Jerusalem on the temple. And then the third place was the highest known. You have very high mountain. All right. Describe each of the three temptations. The devil tried on Jesus. First. He asked him to lust of the, then He asked him to do what<inaudible> To jump down and the angels would save him the pride of life.
And then the last one was yes. Yes. The lust of the eyes bow down and worship me. And you can have all of this. All right. Jesus reacted to the devil’s temptations by eight, ignoring him, be doing what the devil asked or see quoting scriptures, quoting scriptures. Of course. What did Jesus tell the devil to do after the devil had tempted him?
Yeah. Yeah. Behind me get the hint Satan and a lot of other things. According to John, the Baptist, what takes away the sins of the world? Jesus, the lamb of God takes it will come to take it. The, the sins of the world. Name one, man who heard John the Baptist speak and then follow Jesus. I read that in John chapter one,
Andrew, Andrew was the follower of John the Baptist and he heard Jesus and decided to follow, follow Jesus. And then, excuse me, this man brought his brother to Jesus. Who was the brother? Simon. Peter? Yes. Who he called CFUs the stone to which disciple does Jesus say? Follow me John, one 43. It was Philip.
And he told Philip to follow him. And then which disciple does Jesus describe events of his sitting under a fig tree? Nathaniel? Yes. All right. Let’s see. How long has John chapter two? We only have a few minutes left. So I’m going to just go through these questions and see if you can answer them. And if not, I will give you the answer because we don’t have time to read everything.
Now we’re at the wire who went with Jesus to the wedding in Cana of Galilee, where he performed his first miracle. Yeah, his mother and his, his disciples that he had at the time described Jesus’s first miracle and the quality of the wine<inaudible> Change the water into wine. And what kind of wine was it? It was like fresh squeezed, grape juice,
fresh squeezed grape juice. What was the effect on Jesus’s disciples? Seeing him change the water to wine. Yeah. They believed on him. They believed that he was Jesus. When Jesus was to observe the Passover at the temple. Where did he find men selling animals and changing money and the temple? Yes. How did Jesus drive out those selling animals and changing money in the temple?
Yep. He made a whip out of some chords. He turned over the tables. He dumped out their money from their bowls. It was great. What did Jesus mean when he said destroy this temple? And in three days I will raise it up. Yeah. Kill my body in three days. I’ll be resurrected. It was prophesying. When did Jesus’ disciples recall this statement?
Perfect. Yeah, after he had risen, how many books are there and the new Testament? 27 books. 27 books. All right. Of what group of the Jews was Nicodemus? Do we remember? Yes. He was a Pharisee. Good. You guys are getting like on the spot questions that you can answer for? Bible Nicodemus came to talk with Jesus at the morning.
The noon time or night at night? Yes. How did Jesus tell Nicodemus to be born again? John three 33 through six. Yeah. He had to be born of water and the spirit he had to be born of the spirit is what he said. What did Jesus tell Nicodemus that a person must believe to have eternal life? Yeah. He had to believe that he was the only begotten son of God.
All right. What did John the Baptist say about his growing importance in relation to Jesus? No, I must decrease so he can increase basically. Why did John the Baptist Baptists criticized Herod? Yeah. That’s a different time. Actually. The first time it was just for all the evil he had done. He was just criticizing for all the evil he had done.
And how did Herod punished on the baptized Baptist for his criticism now? That’s later he threw him in prison. Yes. Correct. All right. So I’m guessing that everybody has all of these. He told me not to print them off cause everybody should have them already. I only missed a couple of lessons, so we’ll just see if he wants to continue on with that when he gets back,
because he already told me what I’m supposed to be doing on Wednesday. So We’ll take a break Just to see us today and we’re glad to have them here. And they do know Richard Bell. For those of you that remember Richard is they used to live here in worship with us and we, we really loved them and appreciated them, but we’re glad to have them with us.
And we have a few of our own number here, but we do, we are here worshiping God. And that’s what counts. We do want to remember those that are not able to be with us. Those are at home watching the live stream. We’re thinking about y’all and praying for you. And we hope that everyone is doing well. It’s been a trying time,
but we’re still doing what God wants us to do. And we’re trying to, trying to glorify him and trying to lead others to his word, to become children of his. So just keep that in mind and everything will be fine. Just keep eyes on the Lord and try to do his will. And, and we’ll be good. We do won’t to,
if he failed to pick up your communion, it’s in the back of the auditorium on those tables and now would be a good time to get that. If you did not pick it up on the way in, we would ask that our visitors, if you don’t mind, please fill out an attendance card so that we might have a record of you being here.
We certainly appreciate that. And we hope if you’re back this way, we want to invite you to come back and stop by and see us again. We do want to remember those that are ill or the congregation, Joan Springer is at home. I didn’t get a chance to speak to Marie, but she’s still having difficulties some good days, some bad days.
So keep her in your prayers, Robin woods. We won’t also remember her. And then Jessica Dale is still having problems with her stomach, stomach problems. And we hope and pray that she they’ll be able to determine exactly what’s going on with her and help relieve her of, of that. She’s been dealing with that for quite some time. Remember Dorothy and Rodale Wilson.
They’re still at home and Rodale has lost a, of his family members. And we want to remember them in our prayers and both of them were in a very bad health. So keep them in mind. Jane and Marlin is doing well after her knee replacement surgery. And we’re thankful for that. And Cheryl’s dad has a fractured spine and I guess he’s doing as well as possible.

And then Jane’s, Sconiers that’s Diana’s aunt is back in the hospital with pneumonia and congestive heart failure. And we’re certainly, we’re sorry to hear about that on to pray for all of these individuals, that they can regain their health and come back to some reasonable amount of life.
As far as health goes, our daily Bible reading plan, and this is listed in each bullet and every Sunday and beginning of the first of the year, it will be. And in chronological order. So if you might notice it’s different perhaps from the one we used to use, where we were just reading the scriptures from Genesis to revelation, this is going to be in chronological order.
So we encourage everybody to be sure and pick up a bullet and then try to keep up with our daily Bible readings. I believe that saw the announcements that I have. I’ll be directing the song service this morning, and I hope you bear with me. We had someone else plan for this and could not make it. And you know, my throat goes out on me pretty much and I,
I might have to get Murray. His does the same thing. So maybe between the both of us, if mine just plays completely out, I might have to call on Marie to come up and take care of the rest of it. So, but we’ll, we’ll do the best we can. Eric Halverson has our opening prayer. Michael Dale has our sermon today.

Lord, we know there are many amongst us that are unable to be here for various reasons.
And we ask that you reach your loving arms out to them and provide the comfort that they need, that they seek from you on a daily basis. And if it be your will help those that are administering to them to find the right solutions to make their health better so that they can return to their desired measure health. And most importantly returned to assemble here with us to worship you,
God, we also know that there are those amongst us that have lost loved ones. Recently, we asked that you comfort those in only the way that you can.

And this name<inaudible><inaudible> up or it’s for me.<inaudible> And, and now Michael Morning, everybody. Okay. This morning, I’m going to be preaching on being aware of Satan sneaky apostles. Our main tax is going to be taken from second Corinthians chapter 11, verses 13 through 15, second Corinthians chapter 11, verses 13 through 15 for such are false apostles.
Deceitful workers transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ and no Marvel for Satan himself has transformed into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing. If his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works, the children of the Lord must be aware of false teachers appearing to preach the gospel of Christ.
I’m sure most of us in here at one point in time in our lives have heard the story of little red riding hood and a sweet little girl skipping through the woods with her basket of goodies on her way to her grandma’s house. While the ever stocking Wolf lingers in the shadows, watching her, waiting for her to get to a point where he can devour her.
I remember it well because at one point in time, the Wolf ran ahead of her, went to her grandmother’s house, ate up the grandmother and then put her clothes on and laid in bed, waiting for red riding hood. When she came, he ate her up too, but false apostles, like the Wolf in the story are good at disguising themselves to make what they are seeing sound really appealing to us.
Every time we see a fossil parcel, we notice something, a false apostles are always dressed. Really nice, like the Wolf and grandma’s clothes, false apostles, say all the things you want to hear, the better to see you with my dear. The better to hear you with my dear says the Wolf false apostles never actually speak the whole truth. The better to eat you with.
And he gobbled her up false apostles are lovers of money. And that is really all they care about lining their pockets while they sit back and watch you fall into sin all the while thinking that you are safe. You’re okay. Do you remember how the story of little red riding hood ended? It ended with a hero. The lumberjack comes rushing in. He kills the Wolf,
cuts them open and pools, red riding hood and his grandma and her grandmother out of, out of his stomach to safety here. As we read in second Corinthians chapter 11, 13 through 15 Paul who predates the Wolf story by quite a while, comes through inspiration of God, our true savior to warn and save the Corinthian church from the false apostles workers of the real Wolf.
Satan, The moral of the story is the children of the Lord must be aware of false teachers appearing to be preachers of the gospel to help us understand who these false apostles are. Paul through inspiration gives us a description. We have a description of the false apostles themselves. We have a description of the false apostles master, and then we have a description of the false apostles end.
Let us first consider the description. Paul gives us of the false apostles themselves. You will know the false apostles by their work. They are deceitful workers. He says in verse 13 of second, Corinthians 11 for such are false apostles, deceitful workers. They will pervert the gospel turn with me to Galatians chapter one, verses six and seven Galatians chapter one verses six and seven.
The very next book, Marvel that’s ER, so soon removed from him. That called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel, which is not another, but there’ll be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. These spots, apostles pervert the gospel of Christ. They will unsettle your soul acts chapter 15 and verse 24 acts 1524<inaudible> For as much as we have heard that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words,
subverting your souls, saying you must be circumcised and keep the law to whom we gave no such commandment. There’s the birding, our souls. They speak perverse things acts 20 and verse 30 acts chapter 20 and verse 30. Also have your own selves. Shall men arise? Speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them, they speak these perverse things. These false apostles do to draw you away from Christ and his true word.
They will speak a different gospel, a gospel let’s turn back to Galatians chapter one, Galatians chapter one, and we’ll read verses eight and nine Paul through the inspiration writes. But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that, which we have preached unto you. Let him be a cursed, as we said before. So say I now again,
if any man preach any other gospel unto you, then that you have received. Let him be a curse. Paul is warning us up front already back 2000 years ago, almost that there’s going to be false apostles coming into us and trying to teach us another gospel, something that’s not right. And there ought to be a cursed false apostles. Also transform themselves.
They will disguise themselves. Let’s go back to our original text. Second Corinthians chapter 11, and we’ll read verse 13 again. Second Corinthians 11 and verse 13.<inaudible> For such are false apostles. Deceitful workers transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. They, they make themselves look like they’re from Christ. They will disguise themselves as ministers of righteousness. Read verse 15,
just a couple of verses down. Therefore it is no great thing. If his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, they’re going to try to make themselves seem like they’re good. So you will follow them. Why most of the time, so they can line their pockets. They’re sneaky. These false apostles are sneaky. Turn with me to Galatians chapter two,
one book over chapter two and verse four relations to four. And that because of false brethren, unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our Liberty, which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage and to bondage under Satan. They’re sneaky. They come in sneakily and they want to draw you away from Christ because they are Savage wolves among sheep acts chapter 20 in verse 29.
Let’s read this description, acts chapter 20 and verse 29. Excuse me. I’m having some allergy problems for, I know this that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you not just wolves, grievous wolves, these wolves are hungering for you not sparing the flock. They’re not going to spare anyone. They will disguise themselves. Even as sheep. These wolves will be masters of disguise.
Matthew chapter seven, turn with me to Matthew chapter seven and verse 15. Jesus tells us beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing. But inwardly, they are ravening wolves. They may look like one of us, but inwardly, they are hungering to pull you way to, to Satan, to pull you away to sin. But how can we tell who these false apostles are?
You will know them by their fruit. Jesus says Matthew chapter seven, verses 16 through 20 let’s continue reading here in Matthew chapter seven, Jesus said says, you shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles even so every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bring it forth. Evil fruit, a good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit.
Neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits. You shall know them. They are going to, they will never practice righteousness. These false apostles don’t practice righteousness at all. Turn with me to John chapter three, verses seven through ten first John chapter three verses seven through 10 John through inspiration writes little children.
Let no man deceive you. He that do with righteousness is righteous. Even as he is righteous. He, that committed sin is of the devil for the devil Senate. From the beginning for this purpose, the son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin for his seed remain within him.
And he cannot sin because he is born of God. And this the children of God are manifest. And the children of the devil whosoever does not. Righteousness is not of God, neither. He that loveth not his brother. To me. That’s one of the main things. If you can see someone is pulling away, they’re not really loving towards you and the,
and the worship service. That’s someone you need to look out for. There is no good. And these false apostles turn with me. Second, Peter chapter two, that’s one book up second, Peter chapter two verses 10 through 19, but chief Lee, them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise government presumptuous are they self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignities,
whereas angels, which are greater in power and might bring not accusations against them before the Lord. But these as natural brute beasts, he says, made to be taken and destroyed, speak of, speak evil of the things that they understand, not and shall utter utterly perish in their own corruption and shall receive the reward of unrighteousness. As they, that count it pleasure to riot in the daytime spots they are and blemishes supporting sporting themselves with their own receivings while they feast with you having eyes full of adultery.
And that cannot cease from sin. Beguiling unstable souls and heart. They have exercised with covetous practices, cursed children, what ha, which have forsaken the right way and are gone astray. Following the way of bailing. The son of Bowser who loved the wages of unrighteousness, but was rebuked for his iniquity. The dumb donkey speaking with man’s voice for bad,
the madness of the prophet. These are Wells without water, these false prophets Wells, without water clouds that are carried with a Tempest, they go wherever the wind blows them to whom the midst of darkness is reserved forever for when they speak great swelling, words of vanity. They allure through the lust of the flesh through much wantonness. Those that were clean,
escaped from them who live in error while they promise them Liberty. They themselves are the servants of corruption for whom a man is overcome of the scene. As he brought in bondage, they stand up here and they preach to you. A sermon of Liberty. Faith only once saved, always saved. And all the while you think you are saved, when really you are looking to destruction,
let us consider what an apostle is here and apostle in the Greek is Apostolos which according to theorists, Greek lexicon is one who is sent forth with orders to be an apostle, even a false apostle. They must have one who has sent them thus through Paul’s writing and the, to the church in Corinth. We have a description of the false apostles master the false apostles master clearly as Satan,
he has shown to be their master by Paul and second Corinthians chapter 11. Let’s go back to our original texts. Second Corinthians chapter 11 and verses 13 and 14, second Corinthians 11, 13 and 14 for such are false apostles. Deceitful workers transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ and no Marvel for Satan himself has transformed into an angel of light Satan himself.
Jesus said that Satan is these false apostles father turn with me to John chapter eight, the gospel of John chapter eight verses 44 through 46, Seven John eight 44, three 47. Jesus States Of these false teachers year of your father, the devil that and the loss of your father, you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode,
not in truth because there is not truth in him. When we, when he speak, if a lie, he speaks of his own for he is a liar and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, you believe me, not, which of you convinced me of sin. And I say the truth. Why do you not believe me?
He, that is of God. Heareth God’s words either. Ye therefore hear them not because he are not of God. These false apostles not only teach falsely because of Satan, their father, the father of lies. They, they completely shun righteousness. Then the right word, they practice sin. Thus they are of their father. The devil turned back with me to first John chapter three in verse eight first John chapter three and verse eight.
He, that committed sin is of the devil for the devil. Sinneth from the beginning for this purpose, the son of God was manifest that he might destroy the works of the devil. Satan is also crafty and disguise. This is where his apostles false apostles learn. He decides disguises himself as an angel of light, second Corinthians 13 or 11 and verse 14.
And no Marvel for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. He wants you to come to him. So he’s not going to appear as he is. He’s going to appear as a messenger of God as a, as a angel of light. He, as we all know, he also disguised himself as a serpent once upon a time. And Paul get reiterated this to the church at Corinth and verse three of chapter 11,
just a few verses up. If you look at verse three, but I fear less by any means as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety. So your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ, Seton employees, deceit to lead the saved astray. He is a liar, John eight 44, the gospel of John chapter eight. Let’s read it again.
And verse 44, ye are of your father, the devil and the less of your father. You will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode, not in truth because there is no truth in him. When he speak at the Y, he speaks with of his own for, he is a liar and the father of it, the father of lies.
He lied from the very beginning of time. Let’s go to Genesis chapter three, all the way back to the beginning, Genesis chapter three, and read verses one through five Genesis Chapter three, one through five. Now the serpent was more subtle than any of the field, which the Lord God had made. And he said, the woman, yea, hath God said,
ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden. It starts off subtly. You shall not eat of every tree of the garden. Of course he knew God told them they could eat every tree of the garden. And the woman said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the fruit of the tree,
which is in the midst of the garden. God has said, you shall not eat of it. Neither shall ye touch it. Lest he die. And the serpent said unto the woman, he changes one word and it turns the whole thing into a lie. You shall not surely die. He says for God death, not, no, God doesn’t know that in the day you eat thereof and he appeals to their vanity,
then your eyes shall be open. And he shall be as gods. He says, knowing good and evil. Satan is a tricky beast. He has deceived the whole world from the beginning. And to the end, let’s go all the way to revelation revelation, chapter 12 and verse nine, revelation 12 and verse nine. And the great dragon was cast out that old serpent called the devil and Satan,
which deceive it the whole world. He was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him. He deceives the whole world all the way from Genesis, all the way down to revelation. He never stops trying to deceive the world. He was sent. He has sent his workers throughout the entire world to, to, so his madness first,
John chapter four in verse one first John chapter four and verse one, John writes beloved believe not every time the spirit, but try the spirits. Whether they are of God, because as many false prophets are gone out into the world. Many, not one, not a hundred, not a thousand, but many are out there trying to bring us away from God because Satan is relentless.
He roams the earth looking to do evil. We read of this when he’s look into torture job and job chapter one in verse seven, job chapter one and verse seven. And the Lord said unto Satan come SL as if God didn’t know, right then Satan answered the Lord and said, from going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down,
it he’s out there. He’s going to and fro on the earth. He’s walking up and down at everywhere. He possibly can to seek your soul because Satan is waiting to devour you. First, Peter chapter five in verse eight, we’re told through inspiration of the Holy spirit. Peter writes in first Peter chapter five and verse eight, be sober. We are to be sober,
be vigilant. We are to be village in because your adversary, the devil as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking. He may devour. He’s not just waiting for you to come. He’s out there seeking you, waiting to devour you. There’s a reason we are given these descriptions of the false apostles and their master Satan. This is so we can resist them.
First, Peter chapter five, verse nine, whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished and your brethren that are in the world, we must resist him. Now let us consider that. Paul gives us hope by giving us a description of the false apostles end, their end will be according to their words. Paul writes of this to the church at Corinth,
back in our original texts. Second Corinthians chapter 11 and verse 15, second Corinthians 11, 15. Therefore it is no great thing. If his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works, they will meet Swift destruction. Second, Peter chapter two in verse one second, Peter chapter two and verse one,
but there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privileged shall bring in damnable, heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves Swift destruction. Their destruction is going to be Swift as liars. They will be thrown into the Lake of fire revelation, chapter 21 and verse eight, revelation 21 and verse eight,
But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers and I Dodgers and all liars, all false apostles are liars shall have their part in the Lake, which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Their end is utter destruction. We can read of this and Philippians chapter three and verse 19, Philippians chapter three and verse 19,
whose end is destruction whose God is their belly and whose glory is their shame who mind earthly things. These false apostles will need and utter destruction. And that’s why we need to watch out for them. So we don’t end up with the same destruction. God is going to judge the false apostles, just like he judges everyone. Jesus will tell them to depart in the end,
turn with me to Matthew chapter seven, again, Matthew chapter seven, and we’ll read verses 21 through 23. Yeah, Matthew seven 21 through 23. Not everyone that Seth unto me, Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. But he, that do it. The will of my father, which is in heaven, many will say to me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in their name? And in the name of cast out devils and in my name have done many wonderful works. I think of the, the people out there who lay their hands on people and try to give them the Holy spirit to them and things like that. They’ve done all of these mighty magnificent works in his name.
And then will I profess unto them? I never know. I knew you depart from me, ye that work iniquity, what a terrible feeling to be before Jesus and telling him all of these awesome works that you’ve done. And for him to say, I never knew you depart from me. They will be judged according to their deeds. Turn with me to Romans chapter two,
Romans chapter two, let’s all turn there. Romans chapter two. And we’ll read, this is a little bit of a lengthy reading, but I want to read it Matthew or Romans chapter two verses one through 16, therefore, or thou art inexcusable. Oh man. Whosoever thou art that judges for wearing now judges to another they’ll condemn us thyself for thou that judges does the same things,
but we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them, which commit such things and think is now this, Oh man, that judges them, which do such things and dust the same and now shall escape the judgment of God or despise the Sal, the riches of his goodness and forbearance and long suffering. Not knowing that the goodness of God lead a theory to repentance,
but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurer stuff onto the ice self wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteousness, judgment of God, righteous judgment of God, who will render to every man, according to his deeds, to them who by patient countenance and well-doing seek the glory and honor of immortality eternal life, but unto them that are contentious and do not obey the truth,
but obey on righteousness, dig nation and wrath, tribulation, and angry wish upon every soul of man that do with evil of the Jew first and also of the Gentile, but glory honor and peace to every man that works with good to the Jew first and also the Gentile for there is no respecter of persons with God, for as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law.
And as many as I’ve sin in the law shall be judged by the law for not the heroes of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified for when the Gentiles, which have not the law do by nature. The things contained in the law. These having not the law are a law unto themselves, which show the work of the law written in their hearts.
Their conscience also bearing witness and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another. And the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus, according to my gospel, let us also consider second Peter chapter two in verses four through nine second, Peter chapter two verses four through nine, God spared, not the angels that sin, God didn’t even spare the angels that sinned.
He chased them down, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness to be reserved unto judgment and spared, not the old world, but saved Noah, the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemn them with an overthrow,
making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly. These are our examples. We are supposed to pay attention to our examples from God and deliver just lot vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked for that righteous man dwelling among them and seeing, and hearing vexed his righteous soul from day to day, what their unlawful deeds, the Lord Noah, how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.
The children of the Lord must be aware of false teachers appearing to be preachers of the gospel. Last we be led astray. We have our helps from Paul right here in second Corinthians, chapter 11. It’s like a wanted poster. We have the dis there description so we can see who they are. We know who their master is, thus, what they practice lying and deceit.
We know what their end will be and must work to stop them as children of God, let us be careful of the Wolf seeking to devour and expose them for who they truly are. Ephesians five 11. Always remember if God, before us, who can be against us, Romans eight 31 as followers of Christ, we are all messages of his word commissioned to teach every nation,
Matthew 28, 18 or 19 and 20, and every creature about this truth, Mark 16, 15, we must first get them to hear the gospel for through hearing comes faith. John Mark, excuse me, Mark. Hm, Romans 10 17. We must teach them to a point of belief in Jesus as the Christ, because we do not want them to be lost in their sin.
John eight 24, we must teach them to a point of repentance because God commands every man everywhere to repent acts 1730. And we must teach that if they want to be confessed by Christ before the father in heaven, they must confess Jesus as the Christ before men, Matthew 10 32, and that confession leads to salvation. Romans 10, nine, and 10.
We must teach the laws that they must be baptized acts 2216, and we must teach and understand ourselves that salvation does not come just because we followed the steps through baptism. We must live faithfully until death to receive our crown of righteousness and heaven. First, John one, six and seven in revelation, two 10. Unlike what you will hear from the false false apostles.
Every step is necessary for salvation. Believing is not enough. You cannot faith into heaven and you are not baptized and always saved. You must follow every step. And if you have yet to heat each step to gain salvation, the waters of baptism already for you. And if you find yourself wavering on the path of righteousness and need the prayers of the scenes for encouragement,
we are here for you because the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much James, five 16, whatever your need, please come forward.

I want to say to Michael, that was a good job he did today for those that this is your first time to be here. Michael is a student at the school of preaching and he has grown tremendously.
He’ll be graduating this year, this coming year, and he’s, he’s been improving all the time. And we’re thankful that he was able to be here today and preach in Erin’s absence. We haven’t preached for several times each month. So good to have our visitors here. I did fail to mention one thing. Jenny’s dad who suffered a stroke. He is at home under hospice care and just doing the best he can.
He has good days and bad days. I think keep him in your prayers as well. I just overlooked announcements for our visitors. We help if you’re continuing your travels, which I know some of you are understand, headed up to Ohio. We wish you well and have a safe trip.

Again, we find you for this beautiful first day of the week and the opportunity we’ve had to come together as your children to sing songs of praise and to the, into worship day and studied that word. We pray that the things that we have learned here today will help us to strengthen our Christian life and to reach out to others more.
We pray that you’d be with those that are traveling, especially with Aaron and his family who are based in with his, with their family, bring them back safely. We pray that you would be with those that have been mentioned today that are sick and unable to be with us. We pray that you would comfort them and comfort to the families that are tending to them.
We pray that you would go with his Nan and keep us safe during this pandemic and keep us healthy so we can be here together. Christ’s name. We pray. Amen.<inaudible>.
