About Sermon Contributor
Pure Gospel
- "I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more"
- God to all the peoples
- My faults are forgiven
- My relationships are fixed
- "No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest"
- everybody sees, knows and understands
- the least can go upright
- the greatest humble themselves
- Heaven on earth

Biblical Timing
- When do people need a pure Gospel of that kind?
- When life is a mess
- Jeremiah’s situation: the divided houses, his lamentations 1: "4The roads to Zion mourn,for no one comes to the festivals;all her gates are desolate,her priests groan;her young girls grieve,*and her lot is bitter.5Her foes have become the masters,her enemies prosper,because the Lord has made hersuffer for the multitude of her transgressions;her children have gone away,captives before the foe."
- Quite like when Israel was in Egypt land

Personal Timing
- When do we need a pure Gospel of that kind?
- Talking about God’s faithfulness is crucial in time of transition
- Personal experience of slavery
- Personal experience of deportation

Covenant and Torah
- renewed covenant examples all over the Bible: Noah, Abraham, Isaak, Jacob, Mose - over and over again, true for Israel, all peoples and us
- free grace
- rules of love

Yet and not yet
- "The days are surely coming, says the Lord"
- Are we there yet?
- Yes: The ultimate renewal of God’s covenant took place through the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus
- The Law is fulfilled and God’s Holy Spirit is guiding our hearts according to his good will
- But it does not quite feel like heaven. Are we there yet?
- No: Because the game clock is still running
- "After those days" is still to come, these are the latter days and we know all people are latter-day saints

Christ’s second coming
- We are between the ages
- After Christ’s coming which is Christmas
- After Christ’s ascension when he returned to the heavens
- According to biblical timing he is scheduled to come back
- Then the Pure Gospel is going to become a visible reality

Pure Gospel
- Our iniquity is forgiven and our sin is remembered no more"
- My faults have been forgiven
- My relationships have been fixed
- everybody sees, knows and understands
- the least do go upright
- the greatest humble themselves
- Heaven on earth
