HEBREWS 9: 11--17 GOD’S LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

(sermon thought by Vanda Tankersley)

INTRODUCTION: EVERYONE MUST DIE BEFORE HIS WILL BECOMES EFFECTIVE. IT CAN BE WRITTEN AND ESTABLISHED FOR AN UNSPECIFIED TIME, BUT IT IS TO NO AVAIL UNTIL THAT PERSON DIES. GOD’S WILL IS A BLESSING IN SEVERAL WAYS: 1. HE LEFT US THINGS TO ENJOY HERE ON EARTH, AS A RESULT OF THE DEATH OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST; AND YET HE EVER LIVES, THAT ONE DAY WE AS CHILDREN OF GOD,** WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY ETERNITY WITH HIM, AND ALL THAT ETERNITY HAS TO HOLD. CHRIST, AS GOD’S SON, GOD IN FLESH, VERY GOD INDEED, DIES THAT WE MIGHT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, AND THAT THROUGH HIM, A BETTER TESTAMENT (SALVATION BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH) MIGHT BE ENACTED. CHRIST IS THE MEDIATOR OF GOD’S NEW TESTAMENT. THROUGH THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS, GOD’S WILL IS PROVIDED THAT ALL MANKIND MAY COME UNTO HIM WITH A REPENTANT HEART, BELIEVE UPON CHRIST AND BE SAVED.

WHAT HAS GOD LEFT US IN HIS WILL? LET’S LOOK AND SEE.

I. HE LEFT US HIS PEACE. JOHN 14:27: PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU. MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES** LET NOT YOUR HEART BE AFRAID.

PEOPLE SEARCH FOR PEACE THROUGHOUT EVERY AVENUE OF LIFE, AND FIND NOTHING MORE THAN AN EMPTY SEARCH AND DISAPPOINTMENT.

1. THE FRUITS OF WORLDLY LIVING END IN BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT ROOTED IN SINFULNESS, THE HARVEST IS ALWAYS HEARTACHE. PROVERBS 20:17: BREAD OF DECEIT IS SWEET, BUT AFTERWARDS LIKE A MOUTHFUL OF GRAVEL.

(A) HIS PEACE IS A LASTING PEACE.

1. NOT A DO-BETTER, FEEL BETTER BAND-AID APPROACH,, BUT AN ETERNAL PEACE THAT WILL NEVER LEAVE US.

2. STORMS MAY ARISE, TRIALS MAY COME OUR WAY, OUR FAITH MAY BE TESTED, BUT HIS PEACE ABIDES ALWAYS****

(B) HIS PEACE IS A JUSTIFIABLE PEACE. ROMANS 5:I WE ARE JUSTIFIED BY HIS PEACE.

1. THROUGH OUR FAITH IN CHRIST WE HAVE A JUSTIFICATION WITH GOD AND A PERFECT PEACE THROUGH HIM.

(C) HIS PEACE IS A PERFECT PEACE.

(D)HIS PEACE IS AN ABUNDANT PEACE.

(E)HIS PEACE IS AN ASSURING PEACE. JOHN 16:33: IN THE WORLD, YOU HAVE TRIBULATION, BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER, I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD. *REV. (BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB>)

II. HE LEFT US HIS PERFECTION. WE ARE MADE PERFECT THROUGH CHRIST.

(A) WE ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST. COLOSSIANS 2:10: WE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM.

(?) WHAT CAN YOU ADD TO COMPLETION?????? NOTHING!!!!!

1. MANY PASTORS AND CONGREGATIONS TODAY ARE FOLLOWING MAN’S PLANS TO BUILD HUGE “MEGA-CHURCHES”.

2. THEY USE A SEEKER- FRIENDLY APPROACH SO THAT WORDS SUCH AS “THE BLOOD” AND GUILTY, AND CONDEMNED DO NOT RUN OFF THE LOST SINNER.

(?) WHERE CAN YOU RUN A LOST SINNER OFF TO? (ALREADY BOUND FOR HELL. *****

3. THEY USE A “BLENDED” PROGRAM OF MUSIC. (BLENDED WITH WHAT???) MUSIC WITH AN ALTERNATIVE. (WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?) IF IT IS NOT OF GOD THEN IT IS OF THE WORLD. WE NEED SONGS THAT TELL OF GOD’S LOVE AND MERCY.

4. WE HEAR OF THE “PURPOSE DRIVEN CHURCH”

1. THE CHURCH ONLY HAS ONE PURPOSE AND THAT IS TO SHARE THE PLAN OF SALVATION WITH THE LOST WORLD. 1. MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL MANKIND, 2. EDIFY THE SAINTS OF

GOD, LIFT UP THE NAME OF JESUS.

(B) HE LEFT US HIS PERFECT WILL. ROMANS 12:2: BE NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE YE TRANSFORMED, BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND THAT YE MAY PROVE THAT PERFECT AND ACCEPTABLE WILL OF GOD.
