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.

Jesus is the Ultimate Atonement and Sacrifice, Part 2

Jesus is the ultimate Atonement

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.

Part 2:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/16-09-18-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-1b-leviticus-1-e28093-3-i-john-2-1-2-tah.mp3”

Full Sermon:https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/16-09-18-jesus-is-the-ultimate-atonement-and-sacrifice-part-1-leviticus-1-e28093-3-i-john-2-1-2-tah.mp3”

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.

Breaking News: Jesus Is Renewing T/His Church! pt.4

 

exodus-3-and-4-moses-excuses

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/breaking-news-jesus-is-renewing-t-his-church-part-4-exodus-3-4-tah.mp3”

This message of Good News is proclaimed to a congregation on mission with Jesus “Outside the Walls “of their Church bldg., literally.

The Gospel proclaims God, Father, Son and Spirit as the God who calls human beings to participate with Him in a special and gracious way that He provides in the power of the Holy Spirit. It reminds every member of Jesus’ Body that, even like God’s great leaders such as Moses, we can often keep giving God excuses as to why we don’t follow through on what He says. In the Light of His provision and grace Revealed in Jesus and in the power of the Spirit, our Father’s command comes to us through the Apostle Paul all the same, “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.”

God The Trinity’s Dysfunctional, Covenant Family!

God's Dysfunctional Family Genesis 27https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/16-04-10-god-the-trinitys-dysfunctional-covenant-family-genesis-27-1-40-tah.mp3”

Theological Theme: God is sovereign over all of life, and He will work out His plan of redemption despite and sometimes through our dysfunction.

Christ Connection: Jacob’s story is a good example of why humanity needs a Savior. Like Jacob, we seek a blessing that is not ours, but we cannot lie, deceive, or trick to receive it. Instead, Jesus shared His blessing with us when He took the judgment we deserve so that we might receive the blessing He deserved.

Missional Application: Because God specializes in showing mercy to unworthy people, we should look for ways God can make visible His grace through our struggle with ongoing flaws and dysfunction.

God The Trinity Slows Evil’s Spread!

Genesis 11 - Consequences

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/16-02-28-god-the-trinity-slows-evils-spread-gen-11-1-9-tah.mp3”

God, Father, Son and Spirit confused the language of those who sought to make known the greatness of their own name. Thousands of years later, at Pentecost, God tore down the language barrier so that His people would scatter across the world and make known the great name of His Son. God calls us to give up our personal kingdom-building and to devote our lives to love Him and others and make known the great name of His Son, Jesus!

God’s Goodness Despite The Spread Of Sin!

Genesis 4

https://trinityandhumanity.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/16-02-21-gods-goodness-despite-the-spread-of-sin-gen-4-1-26-tah.mp3”

As the graciously adopted children of God, Father, Son and Spirit, He calls us to participate with him in slowing the spread of sin by being salt and light in our world and by proclaiming the peace and joy of His Kingdom (Jesus!)
