“For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10).
The Baptist Bible lowered no gums to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior will and Sharon Riley Junior inviting you to stay tuned for another message of God's sovereign grace and in an and in and in to thank all of you have taken time to write us recently and I appreciate your support in helping to keep the program on the air, if you'd like to help address your letter to the Baptist Bible. Our box 17/37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 and will will be will will be in will will and will will. Today we continue with the message much truth in few words the text first Thessalonians chapter 1 verses 9 to 10 for they themselves show us what manner of entering we hand unto you, and how you turned from idols to serve the living and true God wait for his son from heaven will be raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us the wrath to come close to verses are full of the doctrine of repentance is conducting the service, the supremacy of God, the resurrection of Christ the second coming of Christ. Salvation by Christ and also a declaration concerning final judgment the wrath to come from which Christ has delivered us to pray as we continue there today. The message will be a blessing to the third thing you see in these verses is service turned from idols to serve the living and true God, we think about service first look at Jesus words in Matthew 1624 then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me diligently to serve going to follow Jesus and serve him come after me, follow me, did not set deny the sinful desires that have been controlled. Deny the ambitions that you had that would not be to his glory. Take up the cross.
That's not just a burden to carry.
Netflix, the.something not dying out the self of the Paul's words and you became followers of us and of the Lord doesn't mean that they were following Paul as though they were worshiping the preacher following his example in keeping with what he taught them so they became followers of us and of the lower following the Lord serving the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost to serve him is to worship him to lay him follow not only the example set, but the clear instructions. Jesus is given… Being a bondslave servant that serves out of love, but is totally submissive to the master turn from idols to serve the living and true God, and then exit says to wait for his son to wait for its well – we really we see confirmation of the deity of Christ because it says the father raised him from the dead.
That was the first thing is ever going to talk about son coming back and it was certainly necessary to come out of the great Dennis is the father raised him up. Romans 423 says now it was not worth his sake alone that was imputed to him but for us also to whom it shall be imputed if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead. Here's a confirmation of his deity, Jesus Christ claim before his death that he would come out of the grain, save the great slot of the month of Jesus is never a reason for the benefit of proving that his claims were false and that he was not the son of God was not one with the father player, but the resurrection from confirmation that what he declared was true and it says who was delivered for our offenses and was raising and for our justification thing to consider the we were great centers though we were idolaters by nature, yet he says he delivered us from our offenses delivered us from the sins of which we will condemn delivered us from our guilt from our condemnation and range for our justification. I have says to wait for his son coming of Jesus Christ is wonderful, comforting, joyous, true to his people.
After some sounds are many have reason to favorite cause will see another aspect of his company right now talking about the positive part of it, waiting for his son.
Romans 822 for we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together now and not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit is one of the reasons we grow old because we have the firstfruits of the Spirit, the spirit of God having regenerated upset by Jeanette's blessing us with the fruit of his present gives us a strong desire to ultimately be free from the tabernacle of playing free from this body of death, as Paul describes it, that we may be at last.
At home with the Lord, even we ourselves we grown waiting for the adoption which redemption of our body cannot sometimes grow within yourself with all conflicts, all of the heartbreaks. All troubles from the difficulties with this present life and say oh what a day that will be when Jesus Christ comes back home to be with him.
We wait is coming with patients with confidence with expectancy looks like because it took great glorious day, Paul describes it further. In the fourth chapter of this book. First Thessalonians, verse 16 for the Lord himself shall ascend from heaven with a client with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be, together with them in the air.
And so shall we ever be with some of the Thessalonica concerned that their loved ones was already going on were going to miss this great of the second company books is not the dead in Christ shall rise first step to come out of the grave be united with their spirit and then leaves which are alive and remain caught up together in the air to be with the Lord and the truth is, so shall we ever be with the Lord.
We can have our season joy blessing here. We know that they don't last, continually because as much as we spend little time in the top of the mountain. There's going to be a Sojourn down into the valley but here's a situation that will last forever, so shall we ever be with the Lord can think of anything more wonderful than that than to be in the presence of Jesus Christ to see as if he to enjoy his comfort had to be able to know this is something that will never be too short to be forever with the law says in Philippians 324 our conversation is in heaven where interested in the things of heaven. That's where our father.
That's where our Savior is whoever lives to make intercession for us. That's where our inheritance is\home is were expecting to be something our conversation is in heaven. From points. We look for the safe. Look for the site. They give thought to the strength of this 2nd cup.
We look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like an accused glorious by not only are we going to be with him and be like him, but this frail body of our living chain will be glorified. We should be like him, according to the working whereby he is able to subdue all things unto himself. Yes, they turned from-to wait for some old today. What comp consolation that gives us to know that no matter how rough the past may be now how difficult the tryouts are how heavy the burden talk this coming a better day a glorious day when Jesus Christ comes but then also speaks of wrath.
There's wrath going to be poor that God's wrath is going to be displayed upon some now many today say all I could believe in a God would be photographs the God that our worship is a is a God of love only a God of God not only as a God of love. He is love.
But in his holiness, his wrath minute time sport and upon the transgressors of his role sailor person start talking about. I can't believe that God would ever punish anybody. They obviously first of all miss the fact that God is holy and in his holiness despises that which is evil and in his holiness he is going to do that which is just and right now John 336 speaks of his wrath. Either believe it on the son hath everlasting life, and he that believe is not the son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abide makes me think about lady I was talking to one time she says oh I just know that God loves me no matter what mess up all the time that you know God knows me anyway. There was an essential Morris and he thought about repentance need to ask for forgiveness is just I just hop along through life measurement doing wrong, but the mother God he does he love me anyway on the station has the but God has demonstrated the fact that in his wrath. He will send judgment circulation judgment in Noah's day with the great flood came.
Multitudes were drowned in the depths of the water demonstrated that sonic alarm in the city for burned with fire, has demonstrated many other times with various judgment that he has sent, and there are specific scriptures that make it clear that judgment is coming. Second Thessalonians chapter 1 verse seven and to you who are troubled rest with us. When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven. I get things with his mighty angels in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of what powerful words.
Yes, for his people.
They wait for his coming with great anticipation paper for that date that Jesus will come back shortly with forever, but for those who do not believe in him do not know him.
His second coming is going to be a horrendous event revealed from heaven is coming in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ whole. What a terrible thing to anticipate and then Jesus gave the lesson in Luke chapter 16 verse 23 about the beggar and the rich man the rich man died that says in Luke 1623 and inhale he lift up his eyes, being in torments and CS Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. There are those who would say why I can't believe there's a literal hell I just I just can't believe that I think I think God and his love would not allow such moments again. It's a failure to understand God's holiness that he hates sin, and when she took that sin is punished and the only way that anybody can be relieved of that punishment is at the sin that we paid the debt, and that's only through Jesus Christ the same. So this rich man lift up his eyes, being in torment CS Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Many considered father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this funny that's hard even to imagine think that this man is suffering in the fires of hell and is pleading. If this beggar that was it. Mike Kate could just dip his finger in water and development took as though that one little drop would be welcome relief that then of course was asking if Abraham could send Lazarus back to speak to his brothers that they might not come to this place set up. They won't hear Moses and the prophets. They wouldn't hear one reason from the day but you can see the literal suffering of hail, maybe you shall give thought to what you have been rescued from what salvation has done for you, not only to transform your life that you turn from idols to serve the true and living God, but to rescue you from the suffering that will be endured by multitudes and you don't want things today when we have our troubles and we know we can go to the Lord and expect that he will fears and that he will help us in whatever we trump whatever probably have its temporary is gone forever, but to think of being inhale and there is no help there is no escape. There is no one to rescue these others a great golf fixer made would pass from hence to you cannot read the directions. One cannot pass from heaven horrible thing to think about.
It's it's it's really beyond our ability to fully comprehend the think of one suffering forever under the wrath of God but that's the lesson we learn. Matthew 2541 then shall he say unto those on the left-hand dip part for me. He cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
That's the judgment that's the punishment that will be meted out Jesus delivered us, delivered us from the wrath to come back in sacrificial Romans 5674 when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Glad to know that he died for the ungodly with you see yourself as being ungodly center and unworthy center rejoice to hear the good news of the gospel died for sinners. Second Corinthians 521 says for he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God he made him to be sin for us.
What an amazing thing that Jesus Christ, the spotless Lamb of God, the perfect son of God had power sin put a pony and again is a magnitude that is beyond our comprehension.
How was it that Jesus and the hours on the cross suffer the wrath of God, suffered the hell for all of those who were given to him by the father and ultimately it would have been convinced there he was made sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. When you see your sinfulness and your unworthiness and then think today that in Jesus Christ PCs you in the righteousness of his made righteousness of God for us.
Hebrews 928 four Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many, and unto them that look for him shall he appear without sin unto salvation. He was given to bear the sins only, but that sacrificial death only by his suffering to cross over the fact that he bore the guilt that we then might be 40 and redeemed. So we see it is Jesus who delivers it is Jesus who rescues us from the wrath to come.
We cannot deliver ourselves. We couldn't even assist in the matter. He is the one and only Savior, and surely find great comfort from this truth. First Thessalonians 59 for God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together and edify one another, even as you so here's something about which you can comfort yourself and comfort one another to understand that whether we are alive when he comes back to whether we've already died. Whether we wake or sleep will live together with him as he find it in that fourth chapter from which we already ran oh we look forward to each company with great joy. It would be wonderful if he came today and we pray as the book of Revelation recorded. Even so, quickly, Lord Jesus. Indeed, we can say that in these two verses there is much truth, they would be comforted by the truth to learn once again to be reminded of what Jesus Christ has done for us that as we have been convicted of our sins about enabling power of the Holy Spirit of nonviolence to serve the living and true God that we wait and great anticipation for his company comes, having delivered us from the wrath that is coming in here today not have the comfort of salvation because you have never believed on Jesus Christ hope that you will understand there is only one way to escape the outpouring of God's wrath. That is to be covered with the righteousness of Jesus Christ close your sin that has been paid. He says he leave it on the son hath everlasting life. Yes, he says him that cometh in the me I will in no wise cast Heavenly father we thank the for the wonderful doctrine to the wonderful truths that are in these two verses of Scripture. We pray that that would enable us to rejoice in and happily anticipate the coming of our Savior, we rejoice to know that it sometime. We will be forever with the latest truth influence at life so that we are motivated to serve the monarchy from day to day and all that we do for Jesus sake he made and and in so many people say often not important how much doctrine is in just needs to verses indeed is important because it forms our view of who God is his home and his grace and mercy. How thankful we are truth here given us the inspiration of the Holy Spirit using the apostle Paul in the hope he will take time to write her sentiments which at the same time with the Lord richly bless you and know and and and and and the Baptist Bible hours come to you under the direction of Elder Lucero Bradley Junior address all mailed to the Baptist Bible Lord Cincinnati, OH 45217.
