CHRIST AND CONDEMNATION

JOHN 3:10-21

Pastor Rick Jackson

I. THE UNCONDEMNING CHRIST

1. Forgiving Not Condemning [Jn. 8:10-11]

2. Interceding Not Condemning [Rm. 8:34]

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

3. Chastening not Condemning [1 Cor. 11:32]

But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

II. THE CONDEMNING CHRIST

1. All Judgment Committed Unto Him [John 5:22]

2. He Will Judge in Righteousness [Acts 17:31]

Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

3. He Will Judge Men by their Works [Rm. 2:16, Rev. 20:12-13]

In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

III. THE CONDEMNED CHRIST

1. Sent to Save [Jn. 3:17-18, 12:47]

2. Sentenced to Die [Mt. 20:18, 27:3; 2 Cor. 5:14]

Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself…
For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

3. Set to Return [2 Tm. 4:1, Rev. 19:11]

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Study: Ancient Tree Growth Challenges Evolution

Ancient Tree Growth Challenges Evolution


The basic evolutionary story is straightforward: life evolves from simple to complex. But the fossil record increasingly does not support this simplistic view of earth's history. A recent study of an ancient tree with a very complex and utterly unique growth pattern only adds to this evolutionary puzzle.

Answers for Your Children's Christmas Questions


Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. But Christmas music and movies often neglect to mention Jesus at all, focusing more on Father Christmas or Santa Claus, sentimentality, or just "the spirit of Christmas." Even church Christmas carols, pageants, and cantatas often fail to present an unembellished Christmas history.

What can parents do to help their children recognize the importance of Christmas?

John R. Rice Quotes of the Week

God have mercy on denominations which put into authority and leadership unconverted men who are not under the blood, these who are to perish, thinking only that the preaching of the cross is foolishness. They have a "social gospel" about which they are very concerned, but they do not believe the Gospel that Christ gave us. They preach another gospel and Paul says about them "let them be damned." He said, by divine inspiration. - John R. Rice

The integrity of the Bible and the integrity of Jesus Christ stand or fall together. Jesus is the Word of God in a man. The Bible is the Word of God in a book. - John R. Rice

If the movies are made by wicked, immoral, irresponsible people, then the movies themselves are wicked and immoral and the influence is hurtful and pernicious. And the fact that the moving pictures of America, in the main, are made by a group of immoral people, unfit to be the leaders, unfit to be teachers, unfit to be the examples, unfit to be the entertainers or even the associates of our children and of ourselves. There are some exceptions, but those exceptions are in terribly bad company. -
John R. Rice

The spiritual results of the movies are unmeasured. Only eternity can tell the intricate pattern of evils done to the mind and heart of those who attend the movies. Protestant preachers and churches are usually belittled. Preachers are pictured as sissies. Deacons are pictured as hypocrites. Religion is often subtly held up to scorn. "Science," so-called, is held up as superior to the Bible. The theories of evolution are taken for granted. Little by little New Testament religion is put in the background. The movies leave little taste for fundamental Christianity, little confidence in the churches, little interest in gospel preaching, and little time for church attendance. - John R. Rice

The movies, wherever it is permitted, run on Sundays and keep people, if they can, away from the house of God, away from Bible teaching, away from prayer. Movies destroy character. In the Christian they cause peace and joy to flee away. They grieve the Holy Spirit of God who dwells in each child of God. Movies cause Christians to lose influence. They steal the joy of the saints, they detract from soul-winning zeal and damn the influence of the Christian worker. - John R. Rice

Movies harden the hearts of sinners, encourage sin, make wickedness alluring, and teach that the warnings of the Bible are to be ignored, that sin is to be enjoyed. Doubtless in thousands, perhaps millions, of cases sinners become enamored of sin with the aid of the movies, and turn away from Christ, never to repent, never to be saved, but to spend eternity in Hell. - John R. Rice

The virgin birth fits the nature and the life of Jesus Christ, and it is easy for anybody to believe who accepts Jesus as what He claimed to be, the Son of God who came into the world to save sinners. - John R. Rice

NEVER MAN LIKE THIS MAN

NEVER MAN LIKE THIS MAN!

JOHN 7:1-7, 14-18, 30-46

Pastor Rick Jackson

These few verses from John 7 remind us of a truth we should never forget, there was never a man like Jesus! Jesus is unique in almost every respect. Yes, He took on flesh, but the flesh never took on Him. The officers said it right, "Never man spake like this man." Think of it...

I. NEVER MAN CONCEIVED LIKE THIS MAN! [Mt. 1:20-25]

II. NEVER MAN BORN LIKE THIS MAN! [Lk. 2:6-20]

III. NEVER MAN YOUNG LIKE THIS MAN! [Lk. 2:40-52]

IV. NEVER MAN BAPTIZED LIKE THIS MAN! [Mt. 3:13-17]

V. NEVER MAN TEMPTED LIKE THIS MAN! [Mt. 4:1-11]

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

VI. NEVER MAN SPAKE LIKE THIS MAN! [Jn. 7:46]

VII. NEVER MAN SUFFERED LIKE THIS MAN! [Is. 53:1-7]

VIII. NEVER MAN DIED LIKE THIS MAN! [Mk. 15:37-39]

IX. NEVER MAN RESURRECTED LIKE THIS MAN! [Mt. 28:1-9]


X. NEVER MAN ASCENDED LIKE THIS MAN! [Acts 1:1-3, 9-11]
