Is Everyone Going to Heaven?

Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life”, that life is the very thing we need. He is the only source of life. “He who has the son has life. He who does not have the son does not have life.” * Can a Christian’s name be blotted out of the Book of Life?
* Join us in Israel May 25 – June 6, 2019 for information. * How can we be in Adam and in Christ at the same time? Do we have two natures?

Hebrews – So Great a Salvation, part 14

Hebrews 11 is an insightful look at old-testament saints. Without faith it is impossible to please God and these saints are a wonderful example to us today. Through the lens of faith, we can experience the life God provides. Notice that there is no mention of the sins of these old-testament saints, although each of them were flawed in many ways. God is only concerned with their faith. The same is true for us. Abraham’s story is a story of faith; in fact, he is called the Father of Faith. He is a pivotal character in the story of God’s provision.

Everything We Need

We live under a New Covenant. The old did its work. It showed us our sinfulness and our need for Christ. And now that it has done its job, the New Covenant is ours. “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises…” 2 Peter 1:3-4
* Sally asks about Galatians 5:21. She’s concerned about her friend who struggles with alcohol.

Every Spiritual Blessing

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places…” Ephesians 1:3 We’ve talked about the fact that we are New Covenant believers and here Paul is telling us about our inheritance in Jesus Christ. All too often believers live as if they are spiritual paupers. It’s important to understand the grace of God we have in Christ.

An Invitation to Rest

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The word “rest” has to do with an inner tranquility. It’s an invitation to rest. This is also about eternal rest – the divine rest we have in Jesus.
* Recently I heard two ministers say that the judgment of believers would take place during the tribulation period. Have you heard this? 1 John 4:17-18
* Some people say we have to continue to repent. What are we repenting from? When do we repent?
* Could you talk about 2 Timothy 3:6-7, and the passage talking about women not teaching or haivng authority over men and learning quietly?

A Promise of Rest

There is a lot of restlessness in the world today. And in the Gospel is a message of rest. We need rest and it’s found in the New Covenant. Here’s what the writer of Hebrews writes: “Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.” Hebrews 4:1 * A listener asks for clarification concerning a Christian committing suicide.
* Why is there such a huge difference in the tone of the letters of some books of the Old Testament?

Righteousness is Ours

Romans 10:4 “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” The law could only show us our unrighteousness it could never make us righteous. When we come to Christ by faith we are made righteous in him. The old has given way to the new. Until you let Jesus be the end of the law you can’t see the law for what it is.
* Charles asks about Matthew 18:1-20 concerning the question to Jesus: “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
* What is the “meat of the Word”? I have always believed that it was the so called “deeper” things of God, such as Bible prophecy or something. Is this true?
* I recently had a good friend commit suicide. I know he was a believer and that he is in Heaven. But why does the Holy Spirit allow us to make these decisions?
