Sheep’s Clothing

John tells us to put all influences on trial. That means we compare everything that comes into our lives with the truth of God's holy word, the Bible. If it does not match up to the entire message of the Bible, we should kick it out of our lives – especially if it is claiming to a message from God!

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 1:8-14 “Sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise” pt. 2

The gospel describes our value to God. Our belief in the gospel seals our minds and hearts with the knowledge that God loves us. With this belief as our foundation, we can face the hatred and wickedness around us with a different perspective. Rather than facing hate with hate, we can face all that we see with the love of Christ pouring out of us.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 1:8-14 “Sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise” pt. 1

Elder Bryce shows that our belief of the gospel is the key to our joy and peace. Being sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise only comes when we trust Jesus. This resolved mind will allow us to face the turmoil and wickedness that vexes the world today.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 1:7 “In Whom We Have Redemption” pt. 2

Today's edition of Triumphal Feast continues an expository look at the Apostle Paul's letter to the Church at Ephesus. In the previous episode we learned that nothing short of the gracious and awesome power of God was necessary to redeem us from our sins. Part 2 of the message "In Whom We Have Redemption" describes to us how we can face all the trials and troubles of our lives because of what Jesus has already done.

Triumphal Feast • 1st John 2 “How Do I Know That I Am in Christ?” pt. 2

Today's edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "How Do I Know That I Am in Christ?" When we understand this fact, we can live in the peace of the finished work of Jesus Christ. Today's message picks up in 1st John 2:5.

Triumphal Feast • 1st John 2 “How Do I Know That I Am in Christ?” pt. 1

Last time on Triumphal Feast we joined the Apostle Paul in his doxology about God's joyful will in salvation by grace. Today's message explores how it is that we can know that we as individuals are part of God's elect family.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 1:3-6 “Adoring God” pt. 2

This edition of Triumphal Feast concludes the message "Adoring God." In this sermon, we find that the doctrines of grace (predestination, election, etc.) are the basis for our praise to God. God had pleasure in exhibiting His love toward us in these doctrines. Therefore, it should be our good pleasure to praise Him for it!
