Resurrection

I took this picture several years ago, while on vacation in Florida. The morning was calm, peaceful and reminded me of immortality We are presenting a sermon series our church that I’ve entitled “Peeking through the Gates of Heaven”.

What happens when we die?

What will Heaven look like?

Who will be there?

Will I have a new body?

The Bible says a great deal about the journey, the place, and the amenities we can look forward to enjoying there.

Join us this week as we look at the first amenity, Immortality. You may be surprised at what Christians can look forward to in Heaveen. Service begins at 9:30 AM on Sunday. Notes from bulletin below:

Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven  Sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge “Heaven’s Amenities”First Amenity of Heaven: Immortality

Great minds and great people have searched for immortality. All the time it’s right there in the Bible free for the asking.

A sad conclusion of human brilliance. “I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, …Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or   ridiculous egotism. ~ Albert Einstein, as quoted in his New York Times Obituary, April 19, 1955)

  1. Death’s enemy: Immortality (New Body and Resurrection)

1 Corinthians 15:51-56 (KJV) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting?     Romans 8:21 (KJV)  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

2 Peter 1:4 (KJV)  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 Timothy 1:10 (KJV)  But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

 

  1. New Real Estate

2 Peter 3:12-13 (KJV)  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Revelation 21:1-6 (KJV)  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away

Ezekiel 28:13 (KJV) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

John 14:2 – In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Revelation 22:1-5 (KJV) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

“When God calls the plays”, A Sermon on Super Sunday 2015 Fe.1, 2015

Richard Daughtridge Honor Point“When God calls the plays”, A Sermon on Super Sunday 2015   By Richard Daughtridge

Today we look at God’s dream team in three different events 300 -500 years apart.  God’s team building is however very different than we are used to in the sports world. Lets look at three events in which God supplies the team and calls the plays and players.

    1271 BC

Exodus 32:31-33 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. [32] Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. [33] And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Moses became one of the first intercessors. Notice his heart for the people.

Exodus 33:12-16 (KJV) 12  And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. 13  Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. 14  And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. 15  And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16  For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

750 BC

Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

Habakkuk became a communicator out of his frustration of seeing the people kicked around.   

                                                                                                                                        445 BC

Nehemiah 1:1-4 (KJV 2  That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3  And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. 4  And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

Nehemiah became a builder, encourager, fundraiser, prayer warrior, and worshiper. He led by example. God built a team.  

           1.Team  draft. God has never used a complaining player.  

Ephes. 4:1-4 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, [2] With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; [3] Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [4] There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

  1. Prayer begins play call.  There are people that ask and never believe and there are people that believe and never ask.

Neh. 2:12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

  1. Passion determines play book.  A Broken heart is dangerous when converted to strength.

NE 1:4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

4. Dream determines plan. Where there is no vision people perish but a vision is worthless without a corresponding action.   

Neh 2:4 The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, [5] and I answered the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my fathers are buried so that I can rebuild it.”

5. Team Spirit determines outcome. We reach our greatest potential when we find the value of each other.

Philip. 2:1-7 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, [2] Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. [3] Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. [4] Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. [5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

preachpassion“Knock Out Round, Fighting a Good fight. ”,  a sermon outline,  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

2 Tim. 4:5-8 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. [6] For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. [7] I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: [8] Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
1. Identify with the Crucifixion  (Unrighteousness is consumed by righteousness.)
Galatians 2:20   I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

2. Identify with the Resurrection (Death is consumed by life.)  (I am Risen).
Romans 6:4    Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
3. Identify with the Kingdom  (Kingdom of Satan is conquered by the Kingdom of God.)
John 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
Luke 22:29-30  And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; [30] That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
4. Identify with the Word of God     (Powers of disbelief are disarmed by the Word of God)
Hebrews 4:12   For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
5. Identify with the Church (Church membership is collective ownership of the mission given by God.)
1 Cor. 14:26  How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
6. Identify with the  Body of Christ (War on a global scale must be fought globally.)
Romans 7:4  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
7. Identify your Enemy – Friendly fire is an oxymoron and eventually turns into corporate annihilation.

2 Cor. 4:6   For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness.

This week is Bluegrass Sunday

Another,  guitar plukin, banjo picken, bass fiddle thumpin, choir singin and hand clappin, worship service is  planned at Jacob’s Church September 28th in the morning worship service.  We’ve decided to have a second service dedicated to the old gospel hymnal tradition, bluegrass style. Welcome back to the good old days.

There will be a picnic immediately following church this Sunday in the pavilion. Bring a covered dish and favorite dessert and we’ll all share. We’ll provide  some fried chicken and drinks.  Join in the fellowship and invite someone. This Sunday 09/28/14 right after church. Join us for our first covered dish picnic in the new pavilion.

Can you remember your first driving test?

Our Christian life is a journey and it is very important that we understand  directions as we navigate through life.  We only get one shot at this journey.

These signs  would help chart our course.

Salvation , Baptism, Discipleship, Service, Death, Eternity

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

2 Cor. 5:20  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

5.  Death

Philip. 1:21-24 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. [22] But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. [23] For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: [24] Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

6.  Eternity

 

Rev. 22:12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

John 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
