WALKING IN TRUTH IS IMPORTANT TO OUR GOD … AND TO US

For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (3 John 3, 4)

  1. God is truth. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life … (John 14:6).
  2. God’s truth is more important than His name. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name (Ps 138:2).
  3. Without truth (the Word) there would be no virtue. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true … if there be any praise, think on these things (Phil. 4:8).
  4. God desires to be worshipped, praised and known by His truth.God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
  5. God desires His children to walk in truth. For I rejoiced greatly … of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth (3John 3-4).
  6. Ultimately, God will destroy all those who reject His truth. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness (Rom 1:18).

Truth is essential to God! Truth must be essential to us!

ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for July 16

Dr. J. C. Joiner

UNDERSTANDING AND EXPLAINING THE TRINITY

… the mystery of godliness (1 Tim 3:16)

According to Scripture, there’s ONE God that eternally, equally, and essentially exists as THREE PERSONS: The FATHER, The SON, The HOLY GHOST (SPIRIT).  (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7) This part of theology is called the doctrine of the Trinity, or the Tri-unity. With our finite mind, we cannot completely comprehend the biblical explanation of ONE God in THREE PERSONS.

Perhaps this “three-in-one” spiritual phenomenon can be illustrated by a physical “three-in-one” concept of H20. Otherwise known as water, H20 can be evidenced in three forms: 1) as vapor (clouds / steam H20), 2) as ice (solid H20), 3) as water (liquid H20).  There’s ONE essence, H20, existing in THREE distinct perceptions, and each perception can exist separately, or with each other, or all together.

Another illustration of “three-in-one:” I, personally, am a “three-in-one”: 1) I am a son, 2) I am a husband, 3) I am a father.  To my parents, I am their son; to Jacque, I am her husband; to my children, I am their father. Though I am one individual, yet I am in reference to these, three different identities / manifestations!

Consider “the mathematics of the Trinity.” God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are NOT 1 + 1 + 1. That would be polytheism since 1 + 1 + 1 = 3.   More appropriately, the divine mathematical equation of the Trinity is 1 x 1 x 1 = 1.  One (God the Father) times One (God the Son) times One (God the Holy Spirit) equals ONE GOD!  Truly, … great is the mystery of godliness (1 Tim 3:16).

God is the English word for the Hebrew word, Elohim. In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1).  Elohim is the first of three primary names of Deity in Scripture – Elohim, Jehovah, Adonai. This unity (uni-plurality) is verbally found in Genesis 1:26-27: And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness … So, God created man in HIS OWN image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (emphasis mine).  Note the “plurality” of God in Genesis 3:22:  And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of US, to know good and evil … (again, emphasis mine).  The Trinity, the Tri-unity is latent in the name of God (Elohim).  Elohim is used over 2500 times in the Old Testament.

— from Pastor’s last Wednesday night lesson. Use this information when witnessing to those who question / reject the Trinity (Jews, Islamists, secular humanists, etc.)

KIND, TENDERHEARTED, AND FORGIVING

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

KIND – Treating others in a courteous, good, and helpful manner in words and actions.

TENDERHEARTED – Having compassion, mercy and tenderness. Opposite of hard hearted, rigid, cruel or severe.

FORGIVING – Pardoning, remitting. Releasing an offender from earned or alleged resentment or indebtedness.

Many companies and government agencies offer classes and seminars in Interpersonal communication skills (IPC). God gives us His IPC skills: the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) and fruits of righteousness (Phil. 1:11). Let’s learn them, apply them and use these skills. God knows all about life and living! His way is often opposed to what we really want to do or say, but God’s way works! Our way of walking after the flesh causes us even more problems. Let’s be kind, tenderhearted and forgiving.

GOD’S WORD

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  (Genesis 1:1-2)

THE GAP THEORY

“‘Mind the gap’ is the refrain constantly heard on the London Underground, warning people to be careful not to step into the gap between the platform and the train.

But ‘mind the gap’ would also be a good refrain for students of the Bible! There are some who suggest that there was a gap between Genesis chapter one, verse one and verse two. Some even suggest that this gap could have lasted for millions, or billions of years, during which Lucifer fell from heaven, and pre-Adamic hominids lived alongside other animals, including dinosaurs. And eventually, God destroyed the world in a so-called Luciferian Flood, leading into verse two.

This idea dates back, before the theory of evolution, to the early deep-time geologists, such as James Hutton. Some theologians became convinced that a long age for the Earth had been proven, so they tried to accommodate the supposed millions of years by the idea of ‘a gap.’

There is neither Scriptural nor scientific warrant for this so-called ‘Gap Theory.’ Indeed, the Bible states the opposite. In Exodus 20:11, God states, as a reason for the Fourth Commandment, that He created the heavens and the earth in six days (six 24 hour days – emphasis mine). This means that Genesis 1:1 – the creation of the heavens and the earth – is part of the six days.

Therefore, there can be no ‘gap’ between the first and second verses of the Bible.”                                                          – – from  Creation Moments  6/8/2017

The 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence

July the Fourth, 1776

What happened to those who signed the historic document? Five were captured by the British as traitors, then tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured.  Nine of the fifty-six fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

These first American heroes pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.  Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners. They were men of means, well educated. But they signed knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy.   He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags. Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire … his home was totally destroyed. Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion.  Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such are the stories and sacrifices of the American revolutionaries. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Unwavering, they pledged: “For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” They gave us a free and independent America. We must never take our liberties for granted!

52 of the 56 signers of The Declaration of Independence

were orthodox, deeply committed Christians!

“The last days” (2 Tim 3:1) is evidenced by local church attendance.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Heb. 10:25)

The ministry of Bible teaching, Gospel preaching local Baptist Churches has become increasingly insignificant in this culture, while at the same time, faithful attendance has become a low priority to most professing Christians. Jesus characterized “the last days,” declaring that “iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold (Mat 24:12). Mid-week service and Sunday night service has become an “endangered species” in most Churches. Some have instituted Saturday night services, so the membership is free for “whatever” on Sunday. However, Sunday is not “fun day;” Sunday is the Lord’s Day!

The effective ministry of local Churches in America is diminishing to the applause of a worldly culture that does not want our kind of Church, particularly because of strong convictions about separation from the world-system and godless life-styles. We promote the sanctity of marriage and are pro-life. I constantly appeal to Church members to counter the world-system by faithful attendance in Sunday and Wednesday services. The Bible will continue to be taught and preached four times each and every week. In these “perilous last days,” we need more of God’s Word, not less! See 1 Cor. 1:18.

“Christ loved the church, and gave Himself for it(Eph. 5:25). The Church (assembly) is not paranormal, but the visible and viable house of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15). Being in Christ (2 Cor 5:17), every born-again, Bible-believer surely loves what Christ loves!  It follows then, that Christians will love their local Church where they can give themselves to joyfully and faithfully serve the Lord! The time-limited ministry of New Testament Christians in local Churches ends soon with the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:13-17).

Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:

for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Rom 13:11).

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for June 11

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

June 11, 2017

Flag Day, June 14

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

The Colors of our Flag
  • White signifies purity and innocence
  • Red, hardiness and valor
  • Blue, vigilance, perseverance and justice

Our flag represents our freedom and liberty as a sovereign nation. No other country can tell us what to do. However, more is involved in maintaining that freedom. Freedom is not an inherent right for all time. We could lose that freedom because of making wrong choices for our lives. Many countries have fallen due to the sin and rebellion of their own people.

Alexis de Tocqueville was a French political thinker and historian, most famous for his work Democracy in America, published in 1831. He came from France to visit America. He wondered where America got her greatness from. He toured many states and visited many factories and places. Here is a famous quote from his book:

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits, aflame with righteousness, did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

Just as America’s freedom depends on the choices we make, Jesus gives us a choice to either be bound by sin or be free through Him. That includes continuing in the Word of God and building a relationship with Him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:31-36

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

GOOD USED CLOTHING

Why Go to Sunday School?

Ephesians 4:11-12  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

God has given differing offices to those who are involved in building His churches. God blessed many of you last Sunday through the preaching of Evangelist Larry Clayton. He has the office of an evangelist. One office that some neglect to hear is that of teacher. We have many gifted teachers in our church, but for you to be ministered to, you must attend a class. Sunday School sets the stage for better understanding. The class is designed to meet the needs of each specific age group, including children, singles, college/career, young parents, mature adults, etc.

Sunday School is important because it provides additional opportunities in the church for learning. Visitors, new attendees and other church members can get to know one another better in this setting. People in the community are looking for a real church with real people who care about them. Sunday School provides a great opportunity of developing friendships and trust, which tends to make attendees more committed to Christ and His purpose for them.

Please be here at 9:30 AM next Sunday!

 

RU Recovery Program

RU Meets Fridays at 7 PM / Sundays at 9:30 AM – Everyone is welcome. We especially need a van driver for Friday nights.

RU has a great curriculum for the study of the fruit of the Spirit and fruits of righteousness: Some RU Definitions from our curriculum: Appreciation is an attitude of gratitude for all He’s done, through others, for me. Ingratitude is indifference toward those whom God uses to invest in me. — Come join us!

TODAY: Evangelist Larry Clayton

Please welcome Dr. Larry Clayton to our pulpit today. His ministry began in the Akron Baptist Temple in 1952.  This Man of God has been in the ministry for 65 years, preaching in 80 Mission fields around the world and has had a part in planting over 100 churches in America. Besides holding two honorary doctorate degrees, Dr. Clayton is a graduate of the Baptist Bible College in Springfield Missouri. Larry and wife, Lois, are members of the Cleveland Baptist Church in Cleveland Ohio. Ministering to us today, Brother Clayton will also be the principal Preacher at the Church Builders Conference here tomorrow at 7:00 PM and Tuesday at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM.

Dr. Larry Clayton

Monday and Tuesday, June 5-6

The two-fold purpose of the statewide bi-monthly meeting of Pastors is 1) to encourage Men of God to obey their calling to preach and teach without compromise the inspired, preserved Scriptures, and 2) to challenge Men of God to lead their congregations to plant new Gospel-preaching, separatist Baptist Churches as home-missions projects.

Out wonderful Choir will be singing and of course, the Church family is invited. Scheduled times: Monday (7PM) and Tuesday (9AM-Noon & 7PM).  Meals will be prepared for out-of-town guests only. If you can’t attend, will you pray for this special event that will eventually get unsaved folks saved and God’s people edified.

Be reminded: your very own New Testament Church was at its “planting,” a home-missions project. Fifty-eight years ago, other Churches and Pastors invested in this ministry that has spiritually impacted you and yours and countless others.

Jesus declared;  “… upon this Rock [Christ – 1Cor 10:4]

 I will build my Church; and the gates of Hell

shall not prevail against it.”   (Matt 16:18)

Paul taught: “… Christ also loved the Church,

and gave Himself for it.” (Eph 5:25)

If Jesus Christ builds and defends and loves and gives Himself to His Church,

You should build and defend and love and give Yourself to His Church, also!

WHAT IS NEEDED FOR A CHURCH TO BE PROPERLY CONSTITUTED?

The book of Titus was written to instruct in the proper organization of churches. There were believers in Crete, but there was still something lacking: They needed to be organized into N.T. churches (Tit 1:5). According to Titus, the following are necessary for a proper church:

(1) A proper Gospel (Tit 1:1-3). The one true Gospel is eternal life through faith in the grace of Jesus Christ. It is grace alone and faith alone without admixture. Anything else is cursed (Ga 1:6-9). The sound Gospel also calls for sound ordinances that symbolize the Gospel-believer’s baptism as symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Ro 6:3-5), and the Lord’s Supper as a memorial meal symbolizing Christ’s atonement through His shed blood and broken body (1Co 11:23-26).

(2) Proper leadership (Tit 1:5-9). The only proper leaders for a N.T. church are the pastors, also called “elders” (Tit 1:5) and “bishops” (Tit 1:7). A church is not to be run by a denominational hierarchy.

(3) Proper doctrine (Tit 2:1). A N.T. church is grounded in the whole counsel of God (Ac 20:27; Mt 28:20), in sound doctrine pertaining to Christ, God, Man, Sin, Death, Heaven, Hell, Angels, Prophecy, the Church, and every other Bible truth.

(4) Proper living (Tit 2:2-12). A N.T. church will manifest godliness in Christian life and service.

(5) Proper discipline (Tit 3:10-11). A N.T. church will exercise discipline pertaining to morals (1Co 5) and doctrine.                         [Way of Life Encyclopedia – David Cloud]

Tomorrow Is Memorial Day – USA

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Be sure to fly “Old Glory” in front of your house, and throughout the day, pray for this divided nation!  Memorial Day is not about division, but it could be about reconciliation – a coming together to honor those who gave the last full measure of devotion for our freedoms!

Tonight:  The “NEW JERUSALEM” replacing the “Old Jerusalem.”

President Trump has been in the Middle East and the holy City has been much in the news! Our omnipotent God has plans for Jerusalem. The Book of Revelation describes the “NEW JERUSALEM” as a beautiful city with twelve foundations, coming down from Heaven.  In the evening service (6 PM), Brother Donald Hoogendoorn will present details the Apostle John gives of the celestial City.
