Gospel of John (113)

3/18/18 AM

12:32 as our Lord foretold conversion of Gentiles following His crucifixion death.

Jesus death brought more fruit and glory by far than converting Israel (Is 49:5-6). Gentile conversions and belief on Him in the world was huge (I Tim 3:16). Jesus died by crucifixion, and the gospel of His death offended all kinds but converted many gloriously (I Cor 1:18-24).

Gospel of John (114)

3/18/18 PM

12:33-36 prophetic signification and the crucial need to walk in light of the gospel.

Jesus used signs for His crucifixion (Jn 3:14-15; 8:28). Prophets used signs and symbols (Hos 12:10; Rev 1:1). But most important, His hearers rejected the gospel light. You had better walk in what He has shown you, lest He remove Himself and leave you in darkness.

Gospel of John (111)

3/11/18 AM

12:31b for casting Satan out of heaven initiated by the death of Jesus Christ.

God promised to glorify Jesus Christ, and the second of three transcendent events was for Him to defeat Satan and cast him out of heaven. Jesus spoiled the devil and his palace, made an open show of them, and triumphed over them. Glory in Christ Jesus the Lord!

Gospel of John (112)

3/11/18 PM

12:31b for casting Satan out of heaven initiated by the death of Jesus Christ.

Jesus cast Satan out of heaven and bound him from deceiving the world for gospel preaching. Yet Satan still has liberty and power to blind and tempt individual men. It is a great shame when Christians give place to him and commit treason and spiritual adultery against Christ.

Communication 101

3/7/18 PM

Slides presented by Nathan Crosby from youth retreat to North Myrtle Beach.

Effective communication is a learned skill and necessary to grow in favor with God and men. You are always communicating to God and others, whether you intend to do so or not. Here is a summary of how to listen and speak to both God and others better than before.

Gospel of John (109)

3/4/18 AM

12:31a for more great changes in heaven and earth by the death of Christ.

The shout heard round the world transcending any aspect of American history were the words - It is finished! Wise Christians consider all the invisible things that occurred - not just what they see. War in heaven threw Satan out to persecute believers by pagan and papal Rome.

Gospel of John (110)

3/4/18 PM

12:31a for more great changes in heaven and earth by the death of Christ.

God gave Jesus the Holy Ghost to give His apostles and church, Who then rebuked the world for their idolatry and ignorance. Jesus came in judgment on that generation of Jews to destroy them for murdering Him. Places and people as pagan as Americans were converted!

Macho Sickness

2/28/18 PM

Meeting of men with study of Nabal and Rehoboam as foolish abusers of authority.

Power corrupts. Authority abused hurts those under it. We strongly preach authority from the Bible. Men can be overbearing in their role of husband and father. Hate any resemblance to Nabal and Rehoboam to show rather the gentleness and kindness of David and Jesus.

Gospel of John (107)

2/25/18 AM

12:31a to expose premillennialism for Jewish fables against the kingdom of God.

Paul warned Titus about Jewish fables (Titus 1:14). They wanted an earthly kingdom, so they rejected Messiah and a spiritual kingdom. Premillennialists have taken the Jewish fable of worldly glory and national prominence and run with it. The Bible exposes them as heretics.

Gospel of John (108)

2/25/18 PM

12:31a for prophecies and fulfillment of the kingdom of God as a very present reality.

Jesus received His kingdom after ascending into heaven. It was announced and fulfilled. There is no more for Israel than the spiritual kingdom we appreciate and enjoy (Heb 12:22-29). We reject Jewish corruption of prophecy for the spiritual kingdom of Christ of the Bible.

Gospel of John (105)

2/18/18 AM

12:31a for important events listed by Jesus Christ to result by his death on the cross.

It is all about Him! That is Jesus! The church is the pillar and ground of the truth - what truth? The truth of six events in I Timothy 3:16. And three events in John 12:31-33. The death of Jesus Christ is very great and should be fully grasped in all its implications and results.

Gospel of John (106)

2/18/18 PM

12:31a for prophecy, fulfillment, and the nature of kingdom of Jesus Christ our Lord.

The judgment of this world (12:31a) was a new world order (ruling kingdom) under Jesus after His ascension. It had been prophesied, but neglected by most Christians today. John and Jesus declared it at hand, but it must be understood as an invisible spiritual kingdom.

Gospel of John (103)

2/11/18 AM

12:25-30 for true discipleship; Jesus foresaw His death; God promised glory.

Within a few days of His death and foretelling the glory to follow His death, Jesus exhorted His apostles to hate their lives in this world to truly follow Him. His human nature dreaded crucifixion, but He chose the will and glory of God, Who promised coming glory from heaven.

Gospel of John (104)

2/11/18 PM

12:31a for Jesus to overthrow the world order of Satanic rule of Gentile nations.

The context of Jesus death, the casting out of Satan, and glory to follow provides the sense of judging the world. Jesus took the throne of the world from the devil and sent preachers into all corners of the earth, freeing Gentiles from the kingdom of darkness and idolatry.

Gospel of John (101)

2/4/18 AM

12:3-19 for the grand entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem; it moved the city for the Lord.

The resurrection of Lazarus raised desire to see Jesus and Lazarus. When Jesus returned to Bethany from Ephraim, it spread. A crowd gathered and by inspiration welcomed Him into Jerusalem. The rulers of the Jews were confounded by their inability to silence Him.

Gospel of John (102)

2/4/18 PM

12:20-24 for Greeks seeking Jesus, so He foretold evangelistic fruit by His death.

Greek proselytes (Gentiles) sought out Jesus due to the excitement of His entrance to Jerusalem. The apostles were hesitant. Jesus was not! He foretold much greater glory coming due to much Gentile fruit, symbolized by the germination of a seed in the ground.

Gospel of John (100)

1/28/18 AM

12:1-3 for the week before His crucifixion when Mary anointed His feet gloriously.

Jesus left Galilee several months earlier and arrived in Bethany one week before dying for us. Mary anointed His feet in an intimate act of love and worship. Jesus memorialized it forever in His gospel. You must ask and answer. What can you do to anoint His feet like Mary did?

Anoint the Feet of Jesus at Work

1/28/18 PM

I Peter 2:18-20 shows a Christian can greatly honor Jesus Christ on the job.

Mary did a wonderful thing in John 12:3 when she anointed the feet of Jesus Christ in an intimate and loving act of worship. You can also anoint the feet of the Lord on the job, and the cost of your spikenard depends on the unique facts of your case. It is all about Him!

Great Men for God

1/24/18 PM

Christian men should strive for excellence like the NFL New England Patriots.

God, especially by Paul, inspired the use of sports metaphors to provoke men to excellence as Christians. This meeting of men was to press them to be great men in the sight of God and others. We used the Super Bowl bound 2017 New England Patriots as examples.

Gospel of John (98)

1/21/18 AM

11:28-45 for Jesus with empathy and sympathy before he raised Lazarus to life.

Some are jealous for the glory and strength of Jesus, so they minimize His compassion. They believe He wept about Lazarus because of the weak faith of those there. But He is better than that. Jesus orchestrated the whole event for the glory of God and to increase good faith.
