Main Passages: Romans 1:1-6

Because God has said “YES, humanity, you will live!”, then he must necessarily say “NO!” to sin and everything which destroys life!

“God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is so for us that He has accomplished a HUGE NO on our behalf but it is only a NO that serves His YES!” “How will YOU respond to your resurrection in Jesus Christ?” – TJBrassell

“God is the ‘Yes’ in our ‘No’ and the ‘No’ in our ‘Yes’, the First and the Last…” – Karl Barth

Have YOU Asked Father For Wisdom Lately?

“https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/2017-04-09-have-you-asked-father-for-wisdom-lately-1kings-3-4-tah.mp3”

Main Passages: 1Kings 3-4

“Solomon prayed for wisdom, and God granted him incredible blessings in response. We see how he requested God’s wisdom, how he reigned in wisdom, and the blessings that resulted from his wisdom. We also see how desperately God’s people today need the wisdom and insight that only comes from walking with God.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

God- Father, Son and Spirit’s promise to make His people a light to the nations began to come true during the reign of Solomon, a king whose wisdom came from God.

Christ Connection:

Solomon reigned with great wisdom and insight, and he foreshadows the coming of a greater king— Jesus, in whom is hidden “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3).

Missional Application:

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to depend on Him for wisdom from above and to live wisely before others as a testimony to our all-wise God.

“Wisdom should not be equated with intellectual giftedness or philosophical brilliance. Wisdom expresses itself in the way one lives. Human beings do not have the capacity to acquire wisdom on their own, for that would require ascending to heaven, and thus those who are wise put their trust in the words revealed by God.”  –Tom Schreiner

The God/King Who Makes And Keeps His Promises

“https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/2017-02-26-the-god-king-who-makes-and-keeps-promises-2-samuel-7-tah-mp3.mp3”

Main Passage: 2 Samuel 7:8-26

“God reaffirmed and expanded the covenant promises He made to Abraham—this time to King David. God promised to give David rest from his enemies and to build an eternal house through one of David’s descendants. In response to God’s unfailing promises, David expressed gratitude and humility, and this is the appropriate response for all believers in light of God’s faithfulness’ – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:
The gracious promises of God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are meant to humble us and stir up gratitude in our hearts.

“God does not give us everything we want, but he does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Christ Connection
God promised David that future kings of Israel would come from his family and that his kingdom would last forever. God kept this promise by sending Jesus as one of David’s descendants. All of history is driving toward the day when Jesus, the Son of David, will be recognized as the King whose kingdom is everlasting.

Missional Application:
God calls us to offer ourselves fully to Him so that the mercy and grace we’ve experienced through His Holy Spirit will go out to others.

“God’s promises are the peculiar treasure of believers: the substance of faith’s heritage lies in them.  All the promises of our covenant God are ours to have and to hold as our personal possession.  By faith, we receive and embrace them, and they constitute our true riches.” – Charles Spurgeon

How Jesus Transforms The Downfall Of Israel’s First King

Full Message – 57min:

“https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/2017-02-05-how-jesus-transforms-the-downfall-of-israels-first-king-1samuel-15-10-31-tah.mp3”

Main Passage: 1Samuel 15: 10-31NIV

Theological Theme: God- Father, Son, and Spirit, requires total obedience to all of His commands. “In King Saul’s story, we see the failure to obey God completely leads us to rationalize and justify our obedience, a sin that is compounded by the desire for human approval rather than divine grace. Halfhearted obedience is just another form of disobedience, and so, God-Father, Son and Spirit calls us to renounce our hypocritical displays of righteousness and to submit fully to his purpose and plan.” The Gospel Project

Christ Connection: Saul’s kingship could not last because he rejected God’s word. Israel needed a lasting kingdom ruled by Someone who would obey God fully. Through the perfect obedience of Jesus, God would establish His rule over His humanity forever. “Jesus is standing in for you representing you as one before God even when you’re not obeying. One who is making a great and awesome decision for God even when you are not making a great and awesome decision for God”…..”In light of who Jesus is – The Vicarious Man – and who we are in Him, we can see that the downfall of man (and sometimes YOUR downfall in life) is your failure to obey God COMPLETELY!” TJBrassell

Missional Application: God the Holy Spirit calls and empowers us to renounce our hypocritical displays of righteousness and to submit fully to His purpose and plan in Jesus so that the world will see God’s redemption. “The gracious call of Jesus now becomes a stern command: Do this! Give up that! Leave the ship and come to me! When a man says he cannot obey the call of Jesus because he believes, or because he does not believe, Jesus says: “First obey, perform the external work, renounce your attachments, give up the obstacles which separate you from the will of God. Do not say you have not got faith. You will not have it so long as you persist in disobedience and refuse to take the first step.  Neither must you say that you have faith, and therefore there is no need for you to take the first step. You have not got faith so long as and because you will not take the first step but become hardened in your unbelief under the guise of humble faith.” It is…malicious…to argue like this, a sure sign of lack of faith, which leads in its turn to a lack of obedience. This is the disobedience of the “believers”; when they are asked to obey, they simply confess their unbelief and leave it at that (Mark 9.24). You are trifling with the subject. If you believe, take the first step, it leads to Jesus Christ. If you don’t believe, take the first step all the same, for you are bidden to take it. No one wants to know about your faith or unbelief, your orders are to perform the act of obedience on the spot. Then you will find yourself in the situation where faith becomes possible and where faith exists in the true sense of the word.” –Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship, 73-74

 

 

When God- Father, Son and Spirit Speaks

 

God speaks

Part 1a 19min: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/2017-when-god-father-son-and-spirit-speaks-part1a-1samuel3-tah.mp3”

Part 1b 22min: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/2017-when-god-father-son-and-spirit-speaks-part1b-1samuel3-tah.mp3”

Full Message 41 min: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/01-2017-01-22-when-god-father-son-and-spirit-speaks-1samuel3-tah.mp3”

Main Passages:  1 Samuel 3,  1 Samuel 4:1

Theological Theme: The Holy Spirit illuminates the meaning of God the Father’s Word so that we can understand, trust, and obey God. “We are learning and we will hear in this message that God- Father, Son, and Spirit loves US and He wants to relate to us because God is himself a relationship….God speaks his love and acceptance over us. He is drawing near to relate with us.” – tjbrassell

Christ Connection: As a prophet to Israel, Samuel listened to God and used God’s words to tell the people what God is like. John 1:1 says that Jesus is the Word, sent by God to show the world what God is like. “In our day- this Word of God is all pointing to The Word- God the Son – becoming a fleshly human being and showing up as the Word in living flesh, so that anything we are misinterpreting about what God has to say will no longer be so misinterpreted……You should look for God’s living Word – Jesus- these days. If you’re going to know yourself and find your identity, you have to look outside yourself, and you’re going to have to look to Jesus Christ- The living Word”-tjbrassell

Missional Application: God through the Holy Spirit, calls us to be receptive to whatever He may have to say to us and then deliver the truth of God’s Word to others. “The first service one owes to others in a community involves listening to them. Just as our love for God begins with listening to God’s Word, the beginning of love for others is learning to listen to them. God’s love for us is shown by the fact that God not only gives God’s Word but also lends us God’s ear.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

 

All Of God’s Human Deliverers Need Deliverance Too

Main Passages: Judges 14:1-9 – Judges 16:4-5,15-30

Theological Theme:

God – Father, Son, and Spirit, works even through the defeats of sinful leaders to bring about His plan. [“God Loves human beings. God Loves the world. Not an ideal human, but human beings as they are; not an ideal world, but the real world. What we find repulsive in their opposition to God, what we shrink back from with pain and hostility, namely, real human beings, the real world, this is for God the grounds of unfathomable love.”] – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, A Year with Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Christ Connection:

Samson’s downfall was the result of his own disobedience, and yet God – The Father used his death to begin the deliverance of His people. Jesus’ death was the result of His perfect obedience and our disobedience. God used His death to bring deliverance “once for all” for His people. [“The bible teaches that what matters isn’t what we think is right, but what GOD says is right and what GOD does in the person of JESUS”] – TJBrassell

Missional Application:

God – The Holy Spirit, calls people who feel defeated by sin and evil to put away their sins by turning back to God for deliverance. [“There is no sin that God cannot forgive and has not forgiven in Christ! There is no end to his mercy! But today YOU can choose to TRUST GOD in CHRIST and trust him to receive and forgive ALL of your sins and you can live the kind of life that we all need to, and that is, THE LIFE OF GRACE and THE LIFE OF WORSHIP!”] – TJBrassell

God the Trinity Makes Us His Mighty Warriors

Judges 6-7 Gideon

Part 1a, 26min.:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/16-12-18-god-the-trinity-makes-us-his-mighty-warriors-part-1a-judges-6-7-tah.mp3”%5D%5B/audio%5D

Full Message:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/16-12-18-god-the-trinity-makes-us-his-mighty-warriors-judges-6-7-tah.mp3”

Theological Theme: The strength to obey God-Father, Son and Spirit, and join Him on mission, does not come from within us but from God’s empowering Spirit.

Christ Connection: God called Gideon to be part of His plan to defeat the enemy, and He went to great lengths to assure Gideon of His presence and power. Through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ, God now assures us of His presence and power as we take part in His plan of worldwide redemption.

Missional Application: God calls us to service, trusting that the He Who sends is also the God who strengthens us for the task through His Spirit.

God, In Jesus, Comes and Reigns In Judging Grace

Judges 2

Part 1, 26 mins:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/16-11-27-god-in-jesus-comes-and-reigns-in-judging-grace-part-1-judges-2-tah.mp3”

Full Message:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/16-11-27-god-in-jesus-comes-and-reigns-in-judging-grace-judges-2-tah.mp3”

THEOLOGICAL THEME: God – Father, Son and Spirit cares for His people too much to let them languish in their sin and idolatry forever. He will judge and He will save.

CHRIST CONNECTION: The judges saved people from the consequences of their sin but could not change the cause of their sin. Jesus is the Savior and Judge of the world who takes upon Himself the consequences for our sin and then offers us new hearts that seek His righteousness.

MISSIONAL APPLICATION: God the Holy Spirit places us into union with Jesus, helping us identify and resist the prevailing idolatries in our society so that our distinctiveness will back up our proclamation of the gospel.
