THE GOLDEN RULE - Pastor David



Sinners, though moral, religious, conscientious, and sincere, can NOT get near to Salvation and Heaven by struggling with or following the Golden Rule. The blood sprinkled mercy seat is FIRST.

Judging and the Child of God: A Close Look at Matthew 7:1, part 2 - Past...



Christ calls upon His people, to be truly spiritual Children of God, and then not merely to judge others, but to be such as are qualified, morally and spiritually, to judge in matters concerning truth and error or right conduct and wrong.

Judging and the Child of God: A Close Look at Matthew 7:1, part 1 - Past...



Where God has clearly made His truth and will known, believers SHOULD judge between truth and error...not only standing for what is right, but withstanding what is wrong, Ephesians 6:11-13, and this often involves judging and withstanding persons involved.

What Think YE of Christ? - Pastor David



Since the day Christ asked the question of His own nation...What think ye of Christ...Matthew 22:42, countless millions of many nations in every generation have put the same question to their own hearts and consciences and to their fellow men.

Is the Order of God Today to the Jew First? - Pastor David



Let us keep in mind that Christ came unto His own. John 1:11. Christ was born to be the Saviour of Israel. Acts 13:23. Christ, the Stone, had to be rejected by Israel, the Builders Matthew 21:42, before the salvation of Romans 11:11 would be sent to Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy.

The LLM Question for 6-14-2013 - Pastor David



Today we are considering the meaning of the statement in Romans 1:16...TO THE JEW FIRST.

To the Jew first, and also to the Greek...Romans 1:16. In Mark 7:24-30 we learn that the Jew was more than first, and the poor Greek had a difficult time getting in at all. The twelve apostles asked the LORD Jesus to send her away without a blessing, Matthew 15:23. Then Christ said...I am not sent but unto Israel in Matthew 15:24. Christ said to that Greek woman this significant thing...let the children, the Jews, FIRST BE FILLED, AND, It is not meet to take the bread of the children and cast it to dogs. That is in Mark 7:27.

Let us keep in mind that Christ came unto His own, John 1:11. Christ was born to be the Saviour of Israel...Acts 13:23. Christ, the Stone, had to be rejected by Israel, the Builders, we see that in Matthew 21:42, BEFORE the salvation of Romans 11:11 would be sent to Gentiles in order to provoke Israel to jealousy. One of the most important keys to the truth concerning Gentiles salvation by Grace is the truth of Acts 5:29-32...that Christ was raised up TWICE to be the Savior of Israel...first in incarnation, and second in resurrection. This same truth is stated in Acts 13:23 and Acts 13:30-36. Christ said that His own, the children of the kingdom, would be cast into outer darkness. Matthew 8:12. After that He wept as He pled with them. Luke 13:34-35.

But as we turn from this sorrowful message of Christ in Luke 13:34-35 to Matthew 23:30-39, we turn from compassionate love and indignation to awful wrath and indignation, for, in Matthew, the children of the kingdom who were to be filled FIRST, were called serpents and a generation of vipers. Matthew 23:33. This seems to be worse than the Gentiles. The Gentiles were dogs. The Jews were serpents and vipers, far worse than dogs. They were to have something worse than the darkness of Matthew 8:12, even the damnation of hell. Matthew 23:33.

But as we think of Mark 7:26-27 and Matthew 23:33, and, the serpents and the dogs, let us also think of what the Apostle Paul said, years later, to the Jews...the serpents, first and ALSO to the Greeks...the dogs. Romans 1:16.

With all of that said...here is the LLM Question for 6-14-2013: Is the Order of God Today to the Jew First? Respond at http://www.lionandlambministry.com/index.php/todays-question

Peter's Gospel and Paul's Gospel...The Difference, part 10 - Pastor David



There is not a Christian anywhere who IS obeying Ephesians 3:9 that does not know the difference between the Gospel of the circumcision and the Gospel of the uncircumcision. Between the Gospel of the Kingdom and The Gospel of the Grace of God. If you do not, you need to get on that today.

Peter's Gospel and Paul's Gospel...The Difference, part 9 - Pastor David



In the last sixteen chapters of Acts we find no record of any mis­sionary or spiritual activities of the twelve apostles EXCEPT as they had deal­ings with the Apostle Paul. However, we DO find the agreement of Peter and the Eleven with Paul in the Jerusalem council, where it says...Wherefore my sentence is that we trouble not them (the Gentile Christians), which from among the Gentiles are turned to God. Acts 15:19 and Acts 15:24. Read the text of this message in full at http://lionandlambministry.com/index.php?option=com_content&id=710

Peter's Gospel and Paul's Gospel...The Difference, part 8 - Pastor David



When the Nation Israel rejected Jesus Christ in Resurrection, as well as in Incarnation, the heathen, or rather the gentiles, obtained the mercy of God because of the unbelief of Israel. Romans 11:30. Also the believing heathen obtained the righteousness of God as did Abram, the uncircumcised heathen, before the birth of the nation Israel, 430 years BEFORE the Law was added.

Peter's Gospel and Paul's Gospel...The Difference, part 7 - Pastor David



In Galatians 3:16-19 the Apostle Paul explained to the foolish, bewitched, Christian Gentiles in the Galatian assembly, that Abram was declared righteous, WITHOUT circumcision and WITHOUT religion, 430 years BEFORE God ADDED the Law and the religious program of Israel at Sinai. Hebrews 9:10; Romans 5:20; Galatians 3:19. The ADDED Law did not annul, or cancel out, the Gospel of UNcircumcision which God preached to Abram.
