Matt 5:17-18  17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.  NIV

The Triumphal Entry  Matt. 21;1-9, 15-16

We delve into the importance of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. 

Supplemental Scriptures

Zech 9:   9  Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!
Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.  NIV

Dan 9:25-26   25 “Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.  NIV

Neh 2:7-9   7  I also said to him, “If it pleases the king, may I have letters to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, so that they will provide me safe-conduct until I arrive in Judah? 8 And may I have a letter to Asaph, keeper of the king’s forest, so he will give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel by the temple and for the city wall and for the residence I will occupy?” And because the gracious hand of my God was upon me, the king granted my requests. 9 So I went to the governors of Trans-Euphrates and gave them the king’s letters. The king had also sent army officers and cavalry with me.  NIV

Journey to the Cross

We are sorry that we haven’t been able to update the blog with new sermons since Feb. 25th.  We have had problems with malware in the blog that locked us out.  Then we have been having ongoing problems with recording the sermon.  We believe we have these issues resolved, for now.  

We are currently having our website and blog completely rewritten to hopefully solve all of these issues permanently.  I will send out a blog post when the new website is ready to go online.  With the new website the blog will be an integral part of the website.

Journey to the Cross  John 1:40-11:53

We are going to take the next three sermons to look at the significance of the events that led to the cross. 

Supplemental Scriptures

Heb 12:2   2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Mal 4:5    5 “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes.  NIV

Matt 11:14   14 And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come.  NIV

Matt 17:11-13   11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” NIV

Luke 1:16-17   16 Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous — to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”  NIV

Heb 12:2-4    2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.  4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.  NIV
