    based on 260 ratings
     | 13,286 views

    A Christian’s Christmas wish for the lost of the world is that they may receive these 3 gifts; but they are not gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

    THREE GIFTS FOR CHRISTMAS Luke 1:68 INTRO. The text is taken from the prophecy of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. [The story of John’s birth; the prophecy of the angel to Zacharias in the Temple (Luke 1:13-17).] So Zacharias knew that his new born son was to go before the ...read more

    In this passage, man’s greatest question is met by God’s greatest answer.

    WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED? Acts 16:19-34 INTRO. A. "What must I do to be saved?" This is man’s greatest question. B. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." This is God’s greatest answer. 1. In these verses a despairing man saw his need for "repentance ...read more

    God’s Word has given us ample warning of the coming Rapture. We are each responsible for how we treat and react to these warnings.

    SIGNPOSTS ON THE ROAD TO RAPTURE Luke 21:25-28 INTRO. This is a very important doctrine and yet it is not believed by many church members. [Dad used to tell of a woman who told him that she did not believe all this business about Jesus coming so soon. She asked, "What do you think about ...read more

    A look at the perfect and holy fulfillment of God’s promise of a Savior.

    A CHILD IS BORN Luke 1:30-33 INTRO. I never cease to be amazed by those so-called "scholars" who are continually trying to find errors or contradictions with the flawless Word of God. Jesus prayed, "Thy Word is truth." My grand-dad used to say, "The best part of telling the truth is that ...read more

  • The Church In Jerusalem

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 124 ratings
     | 3,675 views

    We can learn what kind of church Jesus wants us to be by looking at the distinctive identifying marks of the church in Jerusalem.

    THE CHURCH IN JERUSALEM Acts 6:7 INTRO. The verse we have just read is an excellent description of the church in Jerusalem. That church was the hottest church in the New Testament...or since. They were the poorest church (Paul took offerings from other churches to support them) and yet ...read more

  • Jesus Christ The Same

     | 19,874 views

    In a world that is ever changing, it is a great comfort to know that Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today and forever.

    JESUS CHRIST THE SAME Heb. 13:8 INTRO. A cynic once remarked that nothing is permanent except change. We live in a world of change. Everything from ladies’ shoes to legislation, from automobiles to art, from furniture to finances... styles and customs and conditions change overnight. ...read more

     | 1,701 views

    Only Jesus is worthy of our worship and service.

    JESUS ONLY Matt. 17:1-8 INTRO. Jesus took Peter, James and John with him where they saw his transfiguration. Peter’s suggestion and God’s heavenly answer. Why did Jesus pick these three men of all his disciples? I believe it was because they were chosen for a mountain top experience ...read more

  • The Judgment Seat Of Christ

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 83 ratings
     | 6,813 views

    Every born-again child of God will one day stand before Christ to answer for his testimony in this life.

    THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST Rom. 14:12; II Cor. 5:10-11 INTRO. The judgment seat of Christ is for believers and it must not be confused with the Great White Throne Judgment which is for the unbelievers. The believer’s sins are judged on the cross of Calvary at the moment he is saved. (I ...read more

  • The Living Word

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 61 ratings
     | 1,620 views

    In Jesus we find all we need to know about God.

    THE LIVING WORD John 1:1-2 INTRO. This passage is one of the great summits of Holy Scripture. Notice how abruptly John plunges into the depths of eternal truth. He makes no effort to explain himself or his argument. It almost seems as if John was standing at the foot of some enormous ...read more

  • Faithful Or Fruitful

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 51 ratings
     | 2,173 views

    It is possible for one to consider himself faithful but still not produce any practical fruit for the kingdom of Christ.

    FAITHFUL OR FRUITFUL? Matt. 25:14-30 INTRO. Parables defined -- a story used to illustrate a spiritual truth. Why Jesus used parables -- Matt. 13:10-11 So this parable is to teach us some spiritual truth about the working of the kingdom of heaven. In order to find that truth we must ...read more

    based on 73 ratings
     | 5,105 views

    One day we will all find out that no matter how valuable the materials we use to build with, if the foundation is faulty all effort is in vain.

    BUILDING FOR ETERNITY Matt. 7:24-29 INTRO. This passage comes at the end of the Lord’s Sermon on the Mount in which he gives the beatitudes...shows the importance of his believers in the world (salt of the earth)...tells the Jews that he is the fulfillment of the Law of Moses...gives a new ...read more

    The call of Jesus Christ to follow comes to every man.

    FOLLOW ME Matt. 4:18-20 INTRO. What would you have done if the incident we have just read had happened to you?

  • The Curse Of Hidden Sins

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 117 ratings
     | 14,827 views

    Many are under the misconception that they can get away with trying to hide their sin from God. The story of Achan illustrates the fallacy of that kind of thinking.

    THE CURSE OF HIDDEN SINS Prov. 28:13 INTRO. You will never get by with covered-up sin. Sin that is unconfessed, sin that is unlamented, sin with an alibi, sin that is excused, sin with no self-judgement, is certain to bring the wrath of a holy and righteous and angry God! It would be smart ...read more

    GOD’S ANSWER TO SCOFFERS II Pet. 3:3-4 INTRO. A recent poll of so-called theology students revealed that 97% of them did not believe in the bodily return of Jesus. You can be sure that there were scoffers in Peter’s time and in every age since then but as the end time approaches the ...read more

    Contributed by Howard Parnell on Oct 7, 2002
    based on 60 ratings
     | 2,139 views

    What people need today more than anything else is the truth concerning their eternal destiny.

    THE PLAIN TRUTH Prov. 23:22-25 INTRO. The world today is hurting for the truth. We hear a lot about the "credibility gap". That is the difference between what the people are told and the real truth. There is a credibility gap in the presentation of the gospel also. Many people are lost ...read more
