Audio: The Intergenerational Transfer of Truth

“When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel.” Judges 2:10

Every generation of God’s people have the solemn responsibility to effectively pass along God’s truth to the next generation.

When Joshua was given the responsibility to lead the Nation of Israel “something went right”— After the death of Moses, Joshua and his generation successfully stood up and took on the reigns of godly leadership. Joshua 1:1ff.

Unfortunately, when Joshua’s generation passed away and another generation arose “something went wrong.” Judges 2:7-13 and following. What went wrong? And what can we learn from those failures?

Recorded: Saturday May 26, 2012 at the Memorial Day Weekend Conference convened at the Bethany Gospel Chapel in Worcester, MA.

This is the 33rd video in a series of teaching videos on the book of Titus. You can find the first video here.

I don’t claim to understand it but nevertheless it thrills my soul!

God has so engineered His purposes that I get to share in my Savior’s vast wealth for all eternity. If that doesn’t blow your mind nothing will.

Audio: Be Strong and Courageous

Red White Microphone

“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7-9

Three times in the opening verses of the Book of Joshua God tells His servant Joshua to be strong and of good courage (Joshua 1:6,7,9). Many Christians have come to love this phrase. Many have memorized these words and will recite them during difficult times.

Yet, it is important NOT to overlook the context of the verses. When we study the context of Joshua chapter one the significance of these verses only increase.

Recorded: Friday May 25, 2012 at the Memorial Day Weekend Conference convened at the Bethany Gospel Chapel in Worcester, MA.

Titus 3:6 – The Holy Spirit in Conversion

 

 

This is the 32nd video in a series of teaching videos on the book of Titus. You can find the first video here.

How on earth can people be so changed when they become a Christian?

You might think that you could never live the “christian way.” Well here is the amazing truth – you don’t do the changing, God does, and the first part of the process is the Spirit of God being poured out abundantly into your life. Watch and learn of bible based Christianity.

Titus 3:5b – New Life & New Power

 

This is the 31st video in a series of teaching videos on the book of Titus. You can find the first video here.

Last week we were reminded that salvation is a work of God, not based on what we can do but on what God has done through the Lord Jesus Christ.

This week we see something of what was going on when we got saved. God washed us, we were born in His family, God made us new people and the Spirit of God worked in power in our conversion. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.

May God bless this meditation.

Audio: Discipleship & The Seeker Friendly Church

Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple… So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:25-27 ESV, Luke 14:33 ESV

In the four Gospels our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the terms of discipleship.

When we honestly examine His teaching on this very important subject we will probably arrive at the same conclusion as many of His disciples came to: “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” John 6:60 ESV. In fact, His teaching was so difficult that “many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with Him.” John 6:66 ESV.

What about us? After we have evaluated His teachings will we continue with Him or will we be like the “many” who “turned back and no longer walked with him”?

Audio: Jesus Curses a Fig Tree

“On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it.” Mark 11:12-14 ESV

In Mark 11 we are presented with a very curious scene… because of its lack of fruit the Lord Jesus Christ curses a fig tree. How strange! The next day His disciples noticed that the fig tree had, in fact, withered.

Why would the Lord Jesus do such a thing? What is the lesson? If you dig deeper into the passage I believe you will discover a very important lesson regarding fruitfulness.

Audio: Ecclesiastes Chapter One

The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” What profit has a man from all his labor in which he toils under the sun? Ecclesiastes 1:1-3 NKJV

And so begins King Solomon’s book of Ecclesiastes with a searching question: “what does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?” An excellent question, a question that many have asked. Maybe you have asked a similar question about life… “is all of this worth it?” or “work, work, work and then I die?!”

In the book of Ecclesiastes King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, explores his question with brutal honesty. In the end Solomon comes to the conclusion that life is meaningless if it is lived for the things “under the sun.” But there is hope! And that hope is found above the sun.

What about you? Are you living for those things under or above the sun?

Titus 1:6-9 A Closer Look At Elders

 

This is the sixth video in a series of teaching videos on the book of Titus. You can find the first video here.

As discussed in our prior video on verse 5 one of the two key tasks that Paul gave to Titus was to identify elders to care for the new believers. In the verses before us today, Titus 1:6-9, we continue to explore what God’s word has to say about elders.
