7452 - Jesus, The Messiah - John 1:29-51

Listen, read, and comment

Today we’ll be taking a brief look at some events in the early life of Jesus. In the first chapter of John we see Jesus in Bethany beyond the Jordan.

Listen to John 1, verses 29-34:
John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
John 1:30 This is the one I meant when I said, `A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'
John 1:31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel."
John 1:32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him.
John 1:33 I would not have known him, except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, `The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
John 1:34 I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God."

7451 - Lavish Love - 1 John 3:1

Listen, read, and comment

In our study of 1 John, today we are beginning chapter 3. The first verse reads:
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”

7450 - His Righteousness - 1 John 2:29

Listen, read, and comment

We are engaged in a study of the book of 1 John.

In closing out Chapter 2, we see John’s faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and his love for Jesus, his Savior. Consider that Jesus had ascended more than 60 years prior to this writing, terminating their close one-on-one physical relationship. Nevertheless, the writings of John in the 90’s clearly carries the language and tone of deep love for Jesus. John was one of the last remaining figures who had known Jesus personally.

7449 - Confidence - 1 John 2:28

Listen, read, and comment

Join us today in a study of a portion of God’s Word.

The first epistle of John in which we are now occupied in study, is filled with golden stepping stones paving the daily walk of the children of God. This book is not easily outlined because in it the elderly Apostle John, the last living apostle keeps circling around to one of the many mentioned foundational truths, in order to look at it from a new perspective, or to make application of a basic truth in the lives of his readers.

7447 - Changing Life

Listen, read, and comment

Welcome friend. Today let’s think together about experiences which change life.

We all know or have heard about someone who has experienced great physical trauma which has changed the course of their life. People like Joni Erikson Tada, who received spinal injuries which resulted in paralysis. By God’s grace she came to face these limitations.

7446 - Anointing - 1 John 2:27

Listen, read, and comment

In our study of 1 John we have been carefully walking through those verses in chapter 2 in which John is strongly warning the believers in the church –– the body of Christ –– regarding the false teachers which have appeared in the Church near the end of the first century.

Today lets seek the deep meaning of 1 John 2:27. Let’s read this verse and then we will discuss it.

1 John 2:27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit --just as it has taught you, remain in him.

7445 - Those Leading Astray - 1 John 2:26

Listen, read, and comment

God’s Word is so necessary in the life of His children. George Mueller, a man of faith said: “The vigor of our Spiritual Life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts.” (Halley’s, p5)

So, today let’s consider one verse from 1 John, chapter 2. Let me read verse 26. Then we can discuss it.
“I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.”

7443 - The Promise - 1 John 2:24-25

Listen, read, and comment

In our study through 1 John we are now in Chapter 2, verses 24 & 25.

“See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he promised us --even eternal life.”

In the previous paragraphs John has been putting his measuring rod on the false teachers of his day. He has discussed that anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ is filled with the spirit of antichrist. In other words he is anti-God.

7442 - Jesus, Son of God

Listen, read, and comment

As we are studying through the gospel of John we have observed many episodes in the interaction of Jesus with His disciples. As we approach the end of the life of Jesus it seems that it would profit us to search the Scripture and understand more clearly what the time line for the existence of Jesus Christ looks like.

7441 - The Liar - 1 John 2:22-23

Listen, read, and comment

We are now in a close study of the first Epistle of John. This book was written by John late in life –– in the decade of the 90’s. In it he is repudiating the false teachings which were coming forth in the church.

Today we are examining 1 John 2, verses 22 & 23.

“Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist --he denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
