The Full Gospel

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in human history. It changed the world and gave us hope. Not only was Jesus raised from the dead, you too were raised to walk in the newness of life. This changes everything. Thank God for the cross but don’t miss out on the power of the resurrection in your life. It is the core of who you are in Him. “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, … your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4). * Which was first, The Septuagint or The Masoretic text?
* Did the Holy Spirit come into Him when He was Baptized?
* Is there anything that we can add to get into relationship with God? * What are the wages of sin?
* John 11:25-26 Is this about the Rapture?

Present Yourself to God

“For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. … We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.” Romans 6:5-11 Consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. We’ve been given a deposit guaranteeing the future. Sin shall have no dominion over you since we are alive in Christ. * Why do we still celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25? * Does God still heal those who are sick? Do miracles still happen today?

The Christ Event

It’s the greatest story that has ever been told. It’s what Richard would call “The Christ Event”. It includes the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Just as he was raised, we are raised to the newness of life when we submit our lives to him.
* As we celebrated his resurrection many lost their lives in the bombings in Sri Lanka. It’s a sad story and one that is becoming more common. That is the number of Christians being martyred simply for declaring the name of Jesus.
* How do we know the resurrection happened? “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27 * Clay says, “A changed life today is proof of Jesus’ resurrection”. * What is the proper answer to those who ask about self-love?
* My AA sponsor just informed me that they are Jehovah’s Witness. I truly care about her and want her to know truth. How do I pray for her?

It is Finished!

It is Good Friday. It’s an incredible day in the life of believers. It’s the day when the will of God for mankind was executed by Jesus Christ himself. He came to take away our sins, to offer his body as the once and final sacrifice that would finish everything that needed to be done in regard to sin. The words he said on the cross, “It is finished”, are the most powerful words ever spoken. These three words resonate deep within the heart and bring about the cleansing we all need and desperately desire. Once that happens we are cleansed forever and we have the confidence to go into the throne of grace.

The Resurrection Means Life

Today let’s put all the pieces of the Gospel together: the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. “For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” Romans 5:10 We were enemies – in rebellion toward God. But God so loved us that he sent Jesus. The resurrection of Jesus Christ validates his claims and gives it the seal of truth. * Brad calls to say thanks for the ministry of Basic Gospel. * Is it wrong to use the anointing oil that the high priests used?
* I intercede for others on their behalf and ask God to forgive them, but never take their sins upon myself. What’s your take on this? * Can God reject his people? Can we lose our salvation?
* Can you provide some clarity on 1 Timothy 2:12?

The Jail Cell Is Open

“After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said, ‘I thirst.’ A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished,’ and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:28-30 These are some of the most powerful words in the world. We’re celebrating the death of Jesus and we’re also celebrating our old selves being crucified in Him.
* A friend of mine told me about Basic Gospel a couple months ago. I’ve become a regular listener and wanted you guys to know that what you do is truly a blessing to many. * Jay wants to know if his parents will be reunited in Heaven. * At what point is a wife to cover or expose her husband’s sin?
* Please explain Matthew 24:13 “But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

He Claimed “I AM”

It’s interesting that the Good News story starts with death. And this week we’re looking at the events leading up to His death. “Again the high priest asked him, ‘Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?’ And Jesus said, ‘I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.’ …” Mark 14:61-64 Why was Jesus crucified? Because He claimed to be God and that was deserving of death.
* I’ve been a Christian for years, but I’ve backslid. I struggle with sin and wonder about my salvation.
* Jesse talks about the security of the believer that is promised throughout the New Testament.
