Save Time and Preach Like Never Before. Try the new

This sermon outline lists a few of the "It is written" phase that is used out of the 80 times that is found in the KJV of the Bible. We have chosen only the New Testament verses for this outline. It points out the importance of having the Word of God in out hearts and lives. We need to live by the Word and we must act the Word. Then we will live and walk the walk of faith. If Jesus and the apostles used the Word of God, how much more we need to do so in our daily lives when we are faced with temptation, mountains, problems and need of direction in our lives.

I. During the time of facing temptation in our lives.
A. Jesus told the devil directly. (Mat 4:7 KJV) Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
1. We must not serve any idols in our lives.
(Luke 4:8 KJV) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
a. Anything that we do, love and desire that keeps us from the Lord can be an idol.
b. Jesus points out again the importance of the Word to have victory. We need to live by the Word.
(Luke 4:4 KJV) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
c. We need to know the whole Word of God as Satan distorted the Word by using only part of it or twisting the Word. Here he only quotes part of the promise. Luke 4:10 KJV) For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
1. This is why there are false cults and false doctrines.
2. They will twist or pervert the Word.
d. Here Jesus answered with (Mat 4:7 KJV) Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
II. Jesus tells us He came to earth to do the Will and Promise of the Father.
(Heb 10:7 KJV) Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

III. It was written of the ministry of John the Baptist.
(Mat 11:10 KJV) For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
A. John came to prepare for the ministry of Jesus.
B. We need to prepare the world with preaching and living the Word to prepare for the Second Coming of Christ.

IV. Paul tells us of the reason for the Cross was written.
(Gal 3:13 KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
A. He redeemed us from the curse.
B. He became a curse.

V. Jesus tells us what the condition of our churches should be and what it should be called.
(Mat 21:13 KJV) And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
A. My wife and I have personally planted 66 churches in the former USSR. The new believers named most of them the ’House of Prayer’.
