All Of God’s Human Deliverers Need Deliverance Too

Full Message: 51min: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/01-2017-01-08-all-of-gods-human-deliverers-need-deliverance-too-judges-14-16-tah.mp3”

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

Part 1b, 25min.:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/16-12-18-god-the-trinity-makes-us-his-mighty-warriors-part-1b-judges-6-7-tah.mp3”

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.

The Godly Meaning Of The Bronze Serpent

Numbers 21 Serpent - Jesus

Part 2, 25 mins :https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-10-23-the-godly-meaning-of-the-bronze-serpent-part-2-numbers-21-tah.mp3”

Full Message:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-10-23-the-godly-meaning-of-the-bronze-serpent-numbers-21-tah.mp3”

Theological Theme: God our Father sent His Son Jesus to become sin in order to conquer sin.

Christ Connection: Just as the Israelites looked upon the bronze serpent lifted high on the pole and were healed, so also we look with faith upon Jesus Christ, who was lifted high on the cross, and experience Salvation from our sin.

Missional Application: Because Christ has become sin for us, getting rid of it, God the Holy Spirit empowers us to share with others that they, too, can and should look upon Jesus, receiving his love shown deepest on the cross, and receive spiritual healing.

Part 1: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-a-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Part 2: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-b-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Full Sermon: “https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/16-09-23-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-2-leviticus-5-hebrews-9-13-tah-guest-marra.mp3”

Theological Theme: The sin offering represented the purification of the people before Our Father. The restitution offering addressed the damage of depriving others of their rightful due, and it served to cleanse the offender’s conscience.

Christ Connection: These offerings point forward to Christ, whose work purifies our hearts, cleanses our consciences, and frees us to do good deeds for His glory.

Missional Application: God the Holy Spirit calls us to offer others the hope of purification and cleansing that comes only through trusting in Jesus Christ.

Theological Theme: The burnt offering was for the removal of the people’s guilt before God; the grain offering restored Israel to serve God and neighbor, and the fellowship offering was for the reconciliation between God the Father and His people.

Christ Connection: Because of Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice, we celebrate the removal of our guilt before God, the freedom to serve God on His mission, and the restoration of our relationship with God – Father, Son and Spirit.

Missional Application: Because we who share in Christ’s life have been freed from our guilt, God the Holy Spirit calls us to serve Him by serving others.

Jesus Is The Tabernacle Of God The Trinity

Full Sermon:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/16-09-04-jesus-is-the-tabernacle-of-god-the-trinity-exodus-25-40-tah.mp3”

 

Theological Theme: The tabernacle was built so it would be possible for our holy, unique and one-of-a-kind relational God to dwell among a sinful people.

Christ Connection: God instructed the Israelites to build a tabernacle so that He could dwell with them. God wants to be with His people. For this reason, God the Father later sent His Son, Jesus, to “tabernacle,” or dwell, with us.

Missional Application: As the people in whom God, Father, Son and Spirit dwells, we are called to manifest His glorious presence in the world in which we live.

Theological Theme: God the Father’s law reflects God’s intention for human flourishing in society.

Christ Connection: As the sinless Savior, Jesus is the only One who has kept the law perfectly. He demonstrated His love for others by laying down His life in their place.

Missional Application: Because we have experienced God’s great love toward us, we are called to love and seek the good of our neighbors in the Grace and Power of the Spirit.

Theological Theme: God the Trinity’s law reflects His good character and His desire to be first in the lives of His people.

Christ Connection: As the sinless Savior, Jesus is the only One who has loved God – Father, Son and Spirit – completely and honored His name in all things. Through His perfect work on the cross, He has become our Sabbath rest.

Breaking News: Jesus Is Renewing T/His Church! pt.7

As Hugh Halter has written:

“From the beginning of time and throughout the scriptures, God’s people patterned their lives around celebration, feasts, social gatherings, levity, story-telling, eating, drinking, laughter, and listening…

…Remember, when teaching about the gospel of the kingdom, our living metaphors are that of a wedding feast, a banquet, and a supper. It’s time to include this in our own spiritual formation.

That’s what this message is about as a congregation literally throws a party for the community!

Only The Childlike Will Enter God’s Kingdom

38-daily-dependence-matthew-18-3-childlike-faith

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/16-07-31-only-the-childlike-will-enter-gods-kingdom-matthew-18-1-6-tah.mp3″

George MacDonald wrote, Do you think you love your children better than He who made them? Is not your love what it is because He put it into your heart first? Have you not often been cross with them? Sometimes unjust to them? Whence came the returning love that rose from unknown depths in your being, and swept away the anger and the injustice? You did not create that love. Probably you were not good enough to send for it by prayer. But it came. God sent it. He makes you love your children.”

This message of God’s Good News proclaims how God – Father, Son and Spirit – puts his love into us, growing us up into being childlike, so that we may share in it with him, and with others, in his Kingdom!

Check it out!
