Christ Replaces Moses as a Lawgiver

by  of Lake Road Chapel on February 21, 2018

Christ replaces Moses as a lawgiver, just as He replaced other Old Testament types. Moses was the shadow, but Christ is the substance. Moses gave laws to a civil nation made up of mostly unregenerate people. Christ gave laws for a nation of fully regenerate people who all know the Lord and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

Violent Men

by Charles Leiter of Lake Road Chapel on January 11, 2018

Topic: Killing Sin
Category: Full Sermons
Bible: Matthew 11:7-15, Luke 16:16

In Matthew 11:12, Jesus describes the type of people that enter the kingdom of heaven as “violent men.” He’s not talking about any kind of natural or physical violence. He’s talking about a different kind of violence that comes from a holy desperation to follow Christ and kill sin no matter the cost.

Matthew 11:7 And as these were going away, Jesus began to speak to the multitudes about John, “What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind? 8 “But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in kings’ palaces. 9 “But why did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet. 10 “This is the one about whom it is written, ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.’ 11 “Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. 13 “For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John. 14 “And if you care to accept it, he himself is Elijah, who was to come. 15 “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

The Sin of All Sins is Not Believing on Christ

Category: ExcerptsAudio
Bible: John 16:8-9

Concerning sin (John 16:8). What about their sin? A little more definition is given here. It says concerning sin John 16:9, what? Adultery, murder, some atrocious sin like that? No. “Concerning sin, because they do not believe on Me.” That is the radical… that if you chief sin. That is the sin of all sins. Is not to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. To hold out on Him. To put confidence in yourself instead of confidence in Him.

The altogether lovely One. The altogether worthy object of our trust. No reason we should not trust Him. No reason we should not come to Him. Every reason that we should give our hearts love and loyalty without strings attached to the Lord of glory. Sin because they don’t believe on Me. Not only as person but the work that He did on the cross, when He died for sinners.

If you are dying of cancer and this fellow comes from miles away paying an expensive price for the remedy and it surely will work, it worked on thousands that we know. And you take and you disregard it. “I’m not going to take it.” “I don’t need that.” What an insult you see? What an insult to the Lord Jesus Christ who died and shed His blood… and you step on it in the dust.

The blood was flowing down. This is the high-handed rebellion of the sinner against the Lord; to not believe on Him. What a thing! We tend to think that unbelief is a neutral matter. It is not. And the Spirit of God comes and especially puts His finger on that one thing: you haven’t believed on the Lord of glory who died for sinners.

How Can We Be Joyful When Our Loved Ones Are Lost?

by  of Grace Community Church on December 18, 2017

How can we have joy knowing that our loved ones are perishing? If we have unceasing anguish for our loved ones (Romans 9:1-3), it should drive us to earnestly pray for their salvation (Romans 10:1). God is ready to show mercy to lost sinners and we should pray that He would save and have mercy upon our lost loved ones.

I Threw Myself on Jesus’ Mercy, But Nothing Happened

by  of Grace Community Church on December 7, 2017

When people are pursuing Christ and say, “nothing happened”, they can either give up seeking and go to hell, or they can keep seeking Him until they find Him. Christ may even test us and not give us what we’re asking for immediately, but a person with faith won’t give up because they have nowhere else to go but Christ.

Many people say they are seeking Christ, but they’re not fully intent on seeking Him until they find Him. They’re not really seeking Him; it’s just a trivial matter to them.

Providence: The Hand of God Over Everything

 

by  of Lake Road Chapel on April 26, 2017

The providence of God has to do with the fact that God is looking out and taking thought for everything ahead of time. Are you in a hard situation right now? Well God says, “I have already thought of that and made provision for that.” Provision means that God saw it ahead of time and provided. God not only created all things in the past, but He also actively and constantly cares for all things in the present. He upholds all things, preserves all things, and directs all things in order that He might ultimately provide for all things.
