The Temple - Part 1

Scripture:  Exodus 25:8

Greetings kindred and fellow sheep.  We are on a first name basis here.  My name is Walter.  I am your classmate in God’s Classroom.  The Holy Spirit whose name is Jesus Christ is our Teacher.  Our Saviour prophesied the Destruction of the Temple: 

Matthew 24:1-2

1  And Jesus went out and departed from the temple:   and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them,  See ye not all these things?  Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down. 

What was the fulfillment of this Prophecy?  Within the years named Anno Domini (Latin for the year of our LORD), do we have a temple in Jerusalem?  What happened to the Temple after Jesus ascended?

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:11-12

Dispensationalism is a very popular and widespread way of studying the Bible. But it only originated in the late 1500s with the pen of one of the Catholic Jesuits.  It was picked up two-and-a-half centuries later in the teachings of John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren in the United Kingdom and Ireland.  Then the doctrine was spread through the channels of:

  • The writings and speeches of Darby and Americans James Inglis, James H. Brookes, Dwight L. Moody, Cyrus I. Scofield, Lewis Sperry Chafer, Harry A. Ironsides, Arno C. Gaebelein, J. R. Graves, Billy Graham, R. A. Torrey, Gary North, Pat Robertson, Renald Showers, D. J. Kennedy, R. C. Sproul, Arthur Pink, etc.
  • A series of major prophecy conferences in the 1880s,
  • The more than 100 Bible institutes founded in the United States in the first half of the twentieth century,
  • Publication of the Scofield Reference Bible which was published in 1909.

Ezekiel

Sermon by Pastor Jim Jester

February 12, 2023

SCRIPTURE READING: Ezekiel 14:13-14

INTRODUCTION

If anyone believes that a nation is not held accountable for its corporate sin, let this passage of Scripture set him straight. A nation does sin, and that nation pays for the sin it commits. We really have not seen, as yet, the retribution God will place upon America for its disobedience. But there are many signs: extreme weather, cyber threats and hints of nuclear war.

The background to Ezekiel’s prophetic ministry is Judah’s apostasy following the death of the last good king, Josiah, in 609 B.C. From that time on Judah’s kings seemed to go out of their way to avoid righteousness, and the kingdom rapidly declined. Sounds like the present national administration in America, 2023, does it not?

Scripture Reading:  Romans 1:16

The questions are: who is the “Jew” and who is the “Greek” mentioned in this verse of Scripture?  There are several possibilities that interpreters of the Bible have come up with:

  • The Jews are really anyone who is a Jew (be it an Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Mizrahi, Ethiopian, Hassidic, conservative, orthodox, reformed, etc.) and the Greeks are all the rest of the people or Gentiles.  That means everyone who is alive, i.e. universalism.  NIV has translated “Gentile” instead of Greek for this verse.
  • The Jews are really Judeans and the Greeks are the Greek speaking people; no blacks, Orientals, Pacific islanders or others are categorized in either group. 
  • The Jews are really the House of Judah and the Greeks are the House of Israel.
  • The Jews are really the Edomites or Idumeans and the Greeks are the people of Alexander the Great’s empire who spoke Greek.

The Bible can only be understood if the Holy Spirit reveals the correct interpretation to His chosen people.  Without the Holy Spirit, you can get all kinds of different views and ministries based on the Bible.  You can find almost any church that has the beliefs that any person may hold, no matter how much they are filled with heresies or weak doctrine.

After His Own Heart - Part 3

“The LORD hath sought Him a man after his own heart.”

by Walter Giddings

January 29, 2023

Scripture Reading: 1 Chronicles 21:13, 17 

Does the way The Scriptures present David as a man of God “after His own heart” indicate to us The Author expects us to know what was in David’s heart?  Does anyone get the sense God expects us to know what was in David’s heart from The Scriptures we have shared? 

Classmates:  we covered part Two of this evidence [Jan. 1].  Part One was [Nov. 20].  After Part One Pastor Don said something that stuck with me.  David’s calling before he was anointed by Samuel was Shepherd.  The God of Israel is the Good Shepherd in Jesus Christ our LORD!  Both Jesus and David are Shepherds in Israel!!!

Jeremiah / Lamentations

Sermon by Pastor Jim Jester

January 22, 2023

SCRIPTURE READING: Lamentations 1:8, 10, 12

Will America be replaced by non-Adamic peoples? It’s happening!  We in America have rejected God’s commands just as Jerusalem did in Jeremiah’s day. America is fast becoming no longer the land of the covenant people, but rather the land of the heathen people.

The book of Jeremiah (as well as Lamentations) comes from one of the great prophets of the Old Testament. Sometimes known as the “weeping prophet,” he lived to witness the fall of Jerusalem and the Babylonian captivity. The book has outpourings of rage against sin and deep agony of soul; descriptions of personal and national crises, and beautiful affirmations of hope and deliverance. He was faithful to God, but the revival of his people’s faith did not come in his day. Instead, after forty years of ministry, he saw the people slaughtered and the Holy City destroyed. Much of his sorrow is expressed in the book of Lamentations.

The Modern Day Lincoln Cult

by Pastor Charles Jennings 

With preceding and ending comments by Pastor Don Elmore

In the modern American Republican/Conservative/Christian mentality, Abraham Lincoln has been elevated to a ‘Christ-like’ status, when in all actuality, Lincoln and his administration opened the floodgates of political tyranny and socialist policies that has morphed themselves into mature Marxism and governmental corruption that we are living with today.

Scripture Reading Matthew 7:22-23

“Beware of false prophets” (Matthew 7:15a) is the warning that Jesus Christ gave to His covenant people. The false prophets are ravening wolves dressed up as sheep.   Jesus tells His people that the false prophets will:

  • Prophesy in the His name,
  • Will cast out demons in His name, and
  • Will do many wonderful works in His name.

Does anyone here know any false prophets?   Does anyone here know of any preacher who casts out demons in the name of Jesus the Christ? My conclusion is that there are significant more false preachers in our land than real preachers!

Matthew 7:28: “And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine.”

The Writings of Solomon

Sermon by Jim Jester

January 8, 2023

SCRIPTURE READING: Proverbs 8:10-11

INTRODUCTION

In this sermon we will be covering the writings of Solomon as they have to do with racial intimations. Solomon was known for his wisdom, but it appears he did not always follow his own advice, but rather succumbed to temptation. Perhaps some of his failures led to his great wisdom, while at the same time and in due time, God inspired him in answer to his own prayer.

A bit of historical background:  Solomon’s reign was the “golden age” of Israel. The magnificence and splendor of Solomon's court were unrivaled. He had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines, an evidence at once of his pride, his wealth, and his sensuality. The maintenance of his household involved immense expenditure.

Solomon's reign was not only a period of great material prosperity, but was equally remarkable for its intellectual activity. He was the leader of his people also in this uprising amongst them of new intellectual life. He spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five.

After His Own Heart - Part 2

“The LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart

by Walter Giddings

January 1, 2023

Scripture Reading: 1 Chronicles 21:17

We confirmed in Part 1 that David was the man after God’s own heart.  We are reviewing the Evidence of the Scriptures to solve a bit of a Mystery.  We are asking what was in David’s heart that caused the God of our Fathers to call David a man “after his own heart”.  We confirmed in Part 1 that Abraham was called the Friend of God because he did not withhold Isaac, his “only begotten son”, from Sacrifice.  We also confirmed that God made Moses his clear choice to lead Israel from Egypt to the Land of Milk and Honey by speaking with him “face to face”.  [Exodus 33:11] and [Deuteronomy 34:10].  Do we know why God called David a man “after his own heart”?  Do we know now what was in David’s heartWe found with David a number of references to Sheep.  David was the shepherd boy.  God “took him from the sheepfolds”.  [Psalms 78:70].  Are references to David and sheep somehow a clue to solving this mystery?

Five Controversies

Scripture Reading: Titus 1:14:

There are several major discrepancies and controversies that are in the different English versions of the Bible that we now have.  There are also many stories that are hard to believe, but they are true, nevertheless.  But many of the stories can be interpreted in different ways.  Most of the details are missing in the Bible. 

Sometimes in Scripture there are no sure answers to all the particulars of the story.  Some are popularly viewed with a very wrong interpretation.  I picked some of the more interesting ones to decipher.

Pastors of Israel

 
00:00

By Pastor Matthew Dyer

December 18, 2022

Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 3:1-7

The word Pastor is misused in a lot of Churchianity today, and if we look back in history and in the Bible, we see a totally different picture of what a Pastor is supposed to be than what we see today. Today it is not uncommon for a so-called Pastor to be a very effeminate, weak physically and mentally man, who doesn’t know the Bible, and in many cases the Pastor may even be a woman.

The Psalms

by Pastor Jim Jester

December 11, 2022

SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm 1:1-6

INTRODUCTION

In the First of the book of Psalms, the tone is set for the comparison and contrast of those men who are righteous and those who are wicked. “Happy is the man who does not go in the company of sinners… 2 But whose delight is in the law of the Lord.” (Ps. 1:1-2a, BBE)

There are many such references to the upright and the evil in the book of Psalms. At first, we may assume that David is simply speaking about good people and bad people. This is true, as David certainly had his share of trouble from his adversaries. However, as we read large amounts of the Psalms, there is a growing sense that David had more in mind than just the morally good and the morally bad. We find there is a racial context revealed.

God's Law - Part 3

By Garry Maddux

December 4, 2022

Opening Scripture I Jn 5:1-2

The law converts our souls and opens our eyes to understanding God and his desire for our life.

Psalm 19:7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 

Psalm 19:8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

In a review of The Law Part II, we covered the first 8 positive commandments.

  • We are to acquire knowledge of God’s existence.
  • We are to have our minds fixed there is only one God.
  • We are to meditate upon these commandments.
  • We are to fear the Lord.
  • We are to serve the Lord in prayer.
  • We are to cleave to God and the wise.
  • We are to swear in God’s name.
  • We are to emulate God in our daily walk.

Murderous Queen of Judah

Copied from the sermon notes of Pastor Don Elmore

November 27, 2022

I was asked about the children of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel about three years ago.  I have wondered about this situation for many years and didn't receive any help from most Bible commentators.  Very few preachers preached about the subject.   I now have the time, so I will attempt to answer these questions.  They are very important questions because it questions the LORD’s pure genetics.  And any attempt to give an answer is difficult because there are kings in two different kingdoms that have the same name and they ruled at the same time.
