Luke 14:25-35  And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,  (26)  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.  (27)  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.  (28)  For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?  (29)  Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,  (30)  Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.  (31)  Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?  (32)  Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.  (33)  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.  (34)  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?  (35)  It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Hebrews 5:5-10 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. (6) As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. (7) Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; (8) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; (9) And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; (10) Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
Hebrews 7:1-3 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; (2) To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; (3) Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

Hebrews 6:10-20 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (11) And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: (12) That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (13) For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, (14) Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. (15) And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. (16) For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. (17) Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: (18) That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: (19) Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; (20) Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

1 John 3:1-3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (2) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. (3) And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Hebrews 3:1-12 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; (2) Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. (3) For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. (4) For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. (5) And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; (6) But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. (7) Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, (8) Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: (9) When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. (10) Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. (11) So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) (12) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

John 7:25-8:1  Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?  (26)  But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?  (27)  Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.  (28)  Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.  (29)  But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.  (30)  Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.  (31)  And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?  (32)  The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.  (33)  Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.  (34)  Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.  (35)  Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?  (36)  What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?  (37)  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.  (38)  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.  (39)  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)  (40)  Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.  (41)  Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?  (42)  Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?  (43)  So there was a division among the people because of him.  (44)  And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.  (45)  Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?  (46)  The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.  (47)  Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?  (48)  Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?  (49)  But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.  (50)  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)  (51)  Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?  (52)  They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.  (53)  And every man went unto his own house.  (8:1)  Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

2 Corinthians 13:1-14  This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.  (2)  I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare:  (3)  Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.  (4)  For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.  (5)  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?  (6)  But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.  (7)  Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.  (8)  For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.  (9)  For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.  (10)  Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.  (11)  Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.  (12)  Greet one another with an holy kiss.  (13)  All the saints salute you.  (14)  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. The second epistle to the Corinthians was written from Philippi, a city of Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.

It’s Friday…But Sunday’s a Coming!

Sunday I preached on the events of the last week in the life of Christ from the anointing for burial on Saturday evening in Lazarus’ house to the death of Christ on the cross Thursday evening. The message was based upon the Gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I posted the notes for this message on our web site: www.roomforus.com

I wrote a booklet on this account; a culmination of thirty years of study.  It is the day-by-day account of the last week in our Lord’s life commonly called ‘Passion Week’.

I first made a harmony of the gospels so I could be certain when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem and then how the last week began.  I spent much time just trying to make sure where each day began and how it ended in each Gospel account and where Jesus was and what was going on during those days.  It really is a detailed, chronological account from Scripture of how He spent those last days before his death, burial and Resurrection.

The week follows the Passover events as I Corinthians 5:7 says:  “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:” To fully understand what went on you must understand Exodus 12 and what went on that week.

Jesus was presented to Jerusalem on Sunday Nisan 10 and was ‘kept up’ until the fourteenth day of the month, being examined  each day for any spot or blemish, and then was to be killed ‘in the evening’ literally translated ‘between the hours of 3 and 5 p.m.’.

If you follow Jesus’ last week you will find that He was presented to Israel that exact day: Nisan 10 and was questioned and examined Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; where it is recorded: Matthew 22:46 “And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.” He was then arrested that night and was crucified the next day: Thursday Nisan 14 and between the hours of 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. Jesus yielded up His life for us.

If you want a copy of this booklet please call our office and Cindy will print one for you. Of course there will be no charge.

This coming Sunday morning I will preach the message of the Resurrection and the choir will present the cantata they have been working on for weeks.  Sunday evening will be a great time in our fellowship hall around the tables eating unleavened bread and grape juice while I bring a message on the events that occurred during the forty days Jesus showed Himself alive after His passion.  You won’t want to miss!

This Wednesday evening at 6:00 we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper at the same time our Lord Jesus took of it almost 2,000 years ago.

May the Lord Bless you this special time of the year and don’t miss the celebration of Resurrection this coming Sunday!

John 2:13-17  And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,  (14)  And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:  (15)  And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;  (16)  And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.  (17)  And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
