Our box 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 recent weeks we've been bombarded with bad news concerned about the coronavirus of courses dominated the new's. The virus is real fact that many have been infected with it. And many of God is certainly fact. But it's also true that there have been some reports that have not been accurate but we are living in a very difficult time. The dire predictions continue. One doctor saying that things will never return to normal and that we probably will never again be able to shake and stock market is up and down a lot of apprehension about what the future holds tremendous amount of uncertainty without you've heard it all and more so I don't need to go over the details of the bad news. The bad news is that around for a long time. It started in the garden of the today I want to bring you some good news.
I'm going to talk to you about victory and not defeat first Corinthians chapter 15 verse 57 but thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ look at this in three ways to consider the enemy and then the hope and then the victory. The enemy death is described as an enemy fact in the book of first winter. Chapter 15 were told that it is the last enemy that will be destroyed death is dark.
Death disrupts earthly relationships hold the deep pain that is felt when a husband or wife or child. This claim at that.
Sometimes it pain of loss is beyond words to describe the heartaches, the tears flow God's people, sorrow but not as others we sorrow not as those that have no hope. I preached a lot of funerals over the years funerals a little babies of children of teenagers of soldiers killed on the battlefield. One man that was killed in the coal mines. When that died from a blast of dynamite.
The accident I've seen people just agonize with the pain they felt close to loved one had died original. People really don't want to talk about this fact, some people have a lot of suspicions about one lady said to me I never want to be in a room where somebody has died and her parents animal take my children to a funeral home. I want them to see the dead body but death is real death must be faced find that in some cases today.
People don't want funerals anymore. They won't have a celebration about one recently withheld at the bar drinking and celebrating AC funeral brings you face-to-face with the fact that a person is not. Yes, we may be able to say a lot of good things about that person to clear everything Christian that they have lived a life that is left for testimony behind.
We rejoice in that fact is death has come that is a reality, and death has come because of sin. Romans chapter 5 verse 12 wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for all have sin, news is worse than the news about 19. It's worse than news about a struggling economy. It's worse than news about a possible recession. It's worse than news about having your activities restricted that by one man sin entered the world, and death. Because of sin. Romans 623 says for the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. The wages of sin is the result of sin. The penalty of sin is death, then we look at Romans chapter 3 verse 10 as it is written, there is none righteous, no not one. There are those who feel to be superior feel that their life is such, their conduct has been exemplary and somehow they should be accepted by God but the Scriptures plane.
There are none righteous in the sight of God.
All have sinned and come short of his glory. None righteous, no not this tells me that every member of the human race has violated God's law.
Consequently, they are at enmity against God, enemies of God because the rebels were born with that human nature we resist doing what God has commanded our fallen nature leads us down the wrong path is not one person that can be exempt from this all have sin. All are guilty of all or justly condemn, and in Hebrews 927 says as and it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. So death is certain. It's important once to die, and we all wanted.unless were here when Jesus Christ comes back to court up in the air to meet him and after that the judgment the person may say I don't like to think about dance that's morbid attached to negative. I like to have positive thoughts. I certainly don't believe that I'm going to stand accountable in the presence of God.
After habitat from Seattle. What happens at death. Others will say I just believe it all ends. The bodies leaving the ground and it's all over is no life after death. But God's word is clear to say that after death there is judgment all members of Adam's race because of his sin because of his disobedience are under the curse.
The curse of the law because God has all its demands perfection and we don't even come close were violators of the law.
Galatians chapter 3 verse 10 says for as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse.
20 person that says I think I'm going to make it because I'm handpicking every effort to keep the law is here defined as being under the curse, for it is written, cursed is everyone that continue with not in all things, the best you can never be graded on a curve, but says cursed is everyone the continue with not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do so. Here is the enemy death. Death is the enemy. It's certain matter what station a person might occupy life matter how much money may be spent for the best medical help available. Ultimately death comes then think about hope.
The book of Genesis chapter 3, after Adam sin.
Verse 15 the Lord said, and I will put enmity between the end the woman, and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his here then immediately after the fall. After Adam's transgression. He said with his eyes open even to see, but Adam knew what he was doing. He decided I would do what I want to do. Give no regard to the restriction that God has put upon us so we sin and here then is the promise that yet from the seed of the woman that would be one that would bruise the serpent's head. Here's then in the early part of Scripture, a promise that there will be hope.
A Savior will come and then that truth is represented over and over again throughout the Old Testament, sometimes by types and shadows. Sometimes biplane direct prophecies we think about that which was foreshadowed when it came to the point that Pharaoh had continued to harden his heart and refused to let the people go. The plague should come one after another.
Finally going to be the death of the firstborn word goes out but I think it's in the past of the land dance will come in ever home, the firstborn will die, and the only hope for God's people was that they would put up a lamb tested for 14 days, it might be provably without spot and without blemish. Then slay the Lamb take its blood sprinkled upon the doorpost Lord said one that I think the passage of the land when I see the blood, I will pass over you have tried to envision that night. It was a horrible night in Egypt, all the land, the firstborn died firstborn in some cases might've been just an infant. In other cases, a young person and others in the death dance game, but among the Israelites, where the blood was on the doorpost at mother might've heard the cries coming from the Egyptians. She held her little firstborn child in this mature branch but she was comforted to know she was safe because of the blood sprinkled on the doorpost that was pointing to the fact that one day the Lamb of God would come from heaven go to the cross, shed his blood and under the blood of Jesus Christ.
All of those for whom he died. All those who come to faith in him are safe for scripting chapter 5 verse seven says Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. Yes, Christ is our Passover, the Lamb of God slain for fallen guilty sinners and then the good news was proclaimed that help is coming.
There will be salvation and deliverance from the user under the curse and condemnation of sin. Isaiah chapter 7 verse 14 behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel Immanuel meaning, God with us. What a dreadful time it was when Adam had enjoyed the blessing of the beautiful gardening and had to be beautiful, because it had God planted that guard.
If God is it we know it was a good gardener was a perfect garden but because of the sin had to be driven out and he could no longer commune with God as he had previously, and he was fearful of the Lord came calling in the evening time, but now God is going to come visit his people. Yes, the virgin shall conceive. She's going to bring forth a child, and his name will be Immanuel, God with us. Then we read of his saving work in Isaiah chapter 53, the prophet says all we like sheep have gone astray, that once more emphasizes the fact that none of us by nature have done or could do what's necessary to bring ourselves in the favor with God. All of us as wayward sheep have gone our own way with turned to our own way and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. That's amazing Grace is not that though we were rebels by nature at enmity against God going our own way of violating his law doing what we wanted to do that. Nevertheless, because Jesus Christ came to save sinners.
He laid down his life and the iniquity was laid upon him, and then not only do we see hope in the message of the Old Testament by way of type and shadow and prophecy that Jesus Christ was coming, but references even made to the resurrection of the body Hosea chapter 13, the 14th verse, I will ransom them from the power of the grave I will redeem them from this old grave. I will be the destruction repentance shall be hidden from mine eyes those words have a familiar ring. When you read what the apostle says about the resurrection in first Corinthians chapter 15 pain. Yes, I will ransom them from the power of the grave death came by man, by Adam's disobedience, but wife was going to come by another man.
The second man, Adam, Jesus Christ.
When he came to this earth. Finally, Savior arrived, the provinces and fulfill the word of a given Matthew 121 she shall bring forth a son, Vanessa call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sin and then we read that wonderful account in Luke chapter 2 that gives the details. Verse 10 and the angel said unto them, fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy. The shepherds were out in the field tending the flock. The angel appears. Fear not. You can imagine was a fearful thing to then look up and see an angel there in all of his radiant brilliance. But he said fear not, I am bringing you good tidings. That's what I'm here to talking about the day you been a lot of bad news but I'm here to bring you good news, I wanted to confirm the news it was brought by the angel good news of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord asked what land he did man was ruling man was lost.
Man was conveying man was on his way to destruction, says the Savior has come the one and only one that could deliver fallen loss. Ruling man verse 13 and suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men. Oh what good news that will in spite of all the darkness of the years before even the sin and rebellion of God's chosen people had to judge them and send them into captivity and the terrible judgments again upon the notable wicket of the earth, but now here's good news. A message of peace, goodwill toward men. Yes, news has come that when Jesus embarked upon his ministry. It was evident that he had a message to bring. That was a message of hope, a message that was good news.
Whether the synagogue on the Sabbath day picked up the Scriptures and read from the book of Isaiah, a prophecy that concerns himself is what he read Luke chapter 4 verse 18 the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the pool.
I would just pause) say that wonderful good news preach the gospel to the poor.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven person who has been made to realize I'm a bankrupt center.
I don't have anything to pay for a meeting.
I have no righteousness there is no good work that I can perform.
This person is in the low poor state when Jesus said if and only to preach the gospel to the poor so not bringing a message to the rich and the worthy of the self-righteous of those who feel the be sufficient in themselves will bring a message to the poor that where you are today. Do you know that by nature Europe or need to center in the gospel of grace is good news to you. If sent me to heal the brokenhearted, but those are just disappointed because the frustrations of life but brokenhearted with the sense of shame Lord says even though this man.
I look even is of a broken heart and a contrite spirit as your heart been broken with the realization I have offended the holy God of heaven and earth my sins are detestable in his sight if he dealt with me on the basis of sin apart from any mercy publicly ruling forever if your heart is broken because you have offended God because he violated his law is as I have come to feel the brokenhearted, he doesn't heal a broken heart by saying what it doesn't really matter.
He was the broken heart but binding it up by his grace to know that this person who has no righteousness finds his righteousness in Jesus Christ, to preach deliverance to the captives, one that seems to be bound and changed by the terrible habits of sin that have brought them to a low station in life. Recovering of sight to the blind. Those who are in a state of nature apart from grace are in darkness. They are blind and cannot see but Jesus came to bless leaders who are in darkness.
These were blind able to see at the set at liberty them that are bruised and preach the acceptable year of the law that you would think after Jesus read that that the people would have delighted all how wonderful you been able to realize the Messiah has come, the prophecies have been fulfilled.
He's here to bring this great company message went on to speak about the issue of sovereignty that there were many widows in the days of the prophet but not only set one up and she was in this life.
There were many lepers went out on Clinton want to cleanse name and the claimant is like the name of the Syrian and these people so caught up in their own traditions and so offended. To think that God would ever do something for people other than themselves picked Jesus up. Rusty found the building carrying him to the brow. The nearest mountain of the sun overhead first became had not. He had the power to walk away from that displayed is the attitude of the natural man toward the things of God. Here is the son of God, here is Emmanuel, God with us. He's come he's come to save sinners, each pump to fulfill all of these prophetic references, but they and their darkness want to destroy the news that he brought still is on record and it's good news to us today on the way of the in the home of the people in the synagogue is read from the book of Isaiah prophecy that concerned himself and did not receive it interesting news today to know that he came to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, those whose hearts have been broken with the sense of sin can find hope and salvation in Jesus Christ for there's no other name given under heaven whereby we must be say hope that you will righteousness we can with the snow that you've listened to next week at the same time with the Lord richly bless all of this is the above-described lower is coming to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior, pastor of the Cincinnati primitive Baptist Church address all mailed to the Baptist Bible lower Cincinnati, OH 45217.
