In the pregame pastor hands out cards with a depiction of what Christ actually looks like now, and how He will look to us when He returns (we will show it to the Facebook audience in the first part of the lecture). His glory is paramount, and we need to know what that glory looks like... not what's taught in the church today. It's getting worse than we could have imagined.
As we start the lecture pastor reads some letters that you wonderful people send us. And we will try our best to cover the material these folks are asking us for.
Seams you have to tie Mark 1 and Luke 4 into Matthew 4 in order to truly understand who Christ is. We contend here that Satan was not fully aware of exactly who Jesus is. Satan knows the Ancient of Days, but he didn't know that Jesus is He. See 1 Timothy 3:16. Satan is the most intelligent being created. And we know that Judas is the only one in history to have Satan inside him. How does that tie in? Well... listen and find out. You might not like what you hear, but we just don't care what you might like or dislike. We will tell you the truth as best as we understand it to be... no matter how small it makes our church. (our Internet audience is steadily growing BTW. You all need to move up here.)
If there were Angels watching in Genesis 3, then wouldn't they be the only audience observing Jesus in the wilderness? Did Satan confront the first federal head? And here in Matthew 4, he is confronting the second. Remember what 1 Timothy 2:14 tells us. In the garden Adam was not deceived. And the questions pour out of this discussion. I should stop typing so that more people will listen.
Great Sermon! You are Really the Fun Pastor!
Absolutely excellent! I love your teaching and your presentation. I hope to get to Alaska one day and I always have hoped that, but now I have an even better reason. To see you and to visit your church!
I was hoping to go on an Alaskan Cruise but I would love to see you more! Thanks Jim
