  • "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven Is at Hand" (Sermon, Second Sunday in Advent; Matthew 3:1-12)

    And the message is still going on in Revelation. But this age has a better, less offensive message. Just chose Jesus and you’re ok.

    Rev_2:5 Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to Me and do the works you did at first. If you don’t repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches.

    Rev_2:16 Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

    Rev_2:21 I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality.

    Rev_2:22 “Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds.

    Rev_3:3 Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to Me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief.

    Rev_9:20 But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk!

    Rev_9:21 And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

    Rev_16:9 Everyone was burned by this blast of heat, and they cursed the name of God, who had control over all these plagues. They did not repent of their sins and turn to God and give Him glory.

    Rev_16:11 and they cursed the God of heaven for their pains and sores. But they did not repent of their evil deeds and turn to God.

    Many times we are taught that Repent was a new message for the Jews. Tain’t so.............

    Psa_7:12 If a person does not repent, God will sharpen His sword; He will bend and string His bow.

    Psa_50:22 Repent, all of you who forget Me, or I will tear you apart, and no one will help you.

    Isa_1:27 Zion will be restored by justice; those who repent will be revived by righteousness.

    Isa_9:13 For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.

    Jer_5:3 LORD, You are searching for honesty. You struck Your people, but they paid no attention. You crushed them, but they refused to be corrected. They are determined, with faces set like stone; they have refused to repent.

    Jer_36:3 Perhaps the people of Judah will repent when they hear again all the terrible things I have planned for them. Then I will be able to forgive their sins and wrongdoings.”

    Eze_3:19 If you warn them and they refuse to repent and keep on sinning, they will die in their sins. But you will have saved yourself because you obeyed Me.

    Eze_14:6 “Therefore, tell the people of Israel, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Repent and turn away from your idols, and stop all your detestable sins.

    Eze_18:30 “Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Israel, according to your actions, says the Sovereign LORD. Repent, and turn from your sins. Don’t let them destroy you!

    Eze_33:9 But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.

    Eze_33:12 “Son of man, give your people this message: The righteous behavior of righteous people will not save them if they turn to sin, nor will the wicked behavior of wicked people destroy them if they repent and turn from their sins.

    Zep_2:2 Gather before judgment begins, before your time to repent is blown away like chaff. Act now, before the fierce fury of the LORD falls and the terrible day of the LORD’s anger begins.

    Would it mean more if Jesus preached the same thing?

    Without California constantly dragging the nation leftward, we might actually be able to solve some problems for a change.


    Now tell me what the unintended consequences are. If you look at only one factor, decisions are easy. Global warming is real as long as I only look at a couple of points.

    Do you really want China or Russia to have a foot hold, a colony on our native soil? There are good people in CA, will you not fight for them and their property? Do you think the problem goes away by getting rid of CA?

    I am trying to get you to find your Thinking Cap and think long term.

    But everyone including conservatives want quick easy answer that don’t solve the problem but sound like they do........

    The Church started when Christ invested Peter.

    .......................................

    The Canon of Scripture was establish about 325.


    Thank you for the valuable edification this morning. I will lay claim to it at heavens door.

    Mat 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
    Mat 7:22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’
    Mat 7:23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

    But, lets get to the heart of the matter. What you are doing is claiming authority.

    The early church went through many heretics who claimed authority. The were many books rejected and there were many as THE ISSUE WAS AUTHORITY. A lot of people claimed to know Jesus, or his 4th cousin Bert. Or I have a piece of the cross or his burial linen.

    1) the authority stopped with the apostles. That is why it says “holy, catholic, APOSTOLIC church. The authority of all apostles is claimed, not just Peter.

    2) The authority stopped at the apostles, those who had direct contact with Jesus.

    But what does God say about the matter?

    1Co 1:12 Some of you are saying, “I am a follower of Paul.” Others are saying, “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Peter, “ or “I follow only Christ.”
    1Co 1:13 Has Christ been divided into factions? Was I, Paul, crucified for you? Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul? Of course not!

    Now for you thinkers, WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF TRUTH?

    Obviously, God, and His material source is Scripture, which is the only substantive transcendent wholly inspired of God body of Truth.


    Now to add to your (and my) thinking this morning.

    Pro_20:12 Ears to hear and eyes to see—both are gifts from the LORD.

    Jesus used those words often:

    Mar_4:9 Then He said, “Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”
    Mar_4:23 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”
    Mar_7:16 [Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.]

    Now, there is a subtle change in His use of those words when we get to the book of Revelation. I will let you do your own research and thinking.

    In contrast, oral tradition by nature us supremely susceptible to undetectable corruption, with Scripture (what parts of the Word of God were not directly written) being the wheat of such among the chaff, and thus both Jewish and Catholic oral tradition contains teachings that are not the word of God, but which are claimed to be under the unwarranted premise of the veracity of leadership.


    I have been very critical of oral traditions. Written scripture can also be corrupted. There are millions of books telling us what God says.

    But, we are commanded to tell the stories of God to the next generation.. The problem is the mission creep over time. Pretty soon, Moses gave them manna in the wilderness, etc

    Protestants are not exempt from this either. oral tradition, in and of itself is of God, but we can pervert it.

    So how do we get to the truth if both oral and written can be corrupted?

    Job 4:12) “This truth was given to me in secret, as though whispered in my ear.

    The above scares Catholics, that there would be personal interpretation, Luther said, “so be it.” What does God say?

    Ears to hear. The following provides some insite:

    Joe_2:29 In those days I will pour out My Spirit even on servants—men and women alike.

    Act_2:18 In those days I will pour out My Spirit even on My servants—men and women alike—and they will prophesy.

    As an aside this morning. I am continually amazed that the NT is just God repeating the OT. Or maybe the OT repeats the NT?

    Joe_2:28 “Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out My Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions.

    Act_2:17 ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out My Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.

    Flag History: (maybe not the best source but does give some insite)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag

    In antiquity, field signs or standards were used in warfare that can be categorized as vexilloid or ‘flag-like’. Examples include the Sassanid battle standard Derafsh Kaviani, and the standards of the Roman legions such as the eagle of Augustus Caesar’s Xth legion, or the dragon standard of the Sarmatians; the latter was let fly freely in the wind, carried by a horseman, but judging from depictions it was more similar to an elongated dragon kite than to a simple flag.

    During the High Middle Ages flags came to be used primarily as a heraldic device in battle, allowing more easily to identify a knight than only from the heraldic device painted on the shield. Already during the high medieval period, and increasingly during the Late Middle Ages, city states and communes such as those of the Old Swiss Confederacy also began to use flags as field signs. Regimental flags for individual units became commonplace during the Early Modern period.

    During the peak of the age of sail, beginning in the early 17th century, it was customary (and later a legal requirement) for ships to carry flags designating their nationality;[1] these flags eventually evolved into the national flags and maritime flags of today. Flags also became the preferred means of communications at sea, resulting in various systems of flag signals; see, International maritime signal flags.

    Use of flags outside of military or naval context begins only with the rise of nationalist sentiment by the end of the 18th century; the earliest national flags date to that period, and during the 19th century it became common for every sovereign state to introduce a national flag.[citatio

    Jesus never used the word “hell”. He used the word Gehenna.


    The good news is that you are in the Bible. I always personally find that to be exciting, and then I think about it.

    1Ti 6:4 Anyone who teaches something different is arrogant and lacks understanding. Such a person has an unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, division, slander, and evil suspicions.

    You argue that eternal punishment doesn’t mean forever, it is a period of time, and that it is meant for correction.

    Well then you have to argue that ETERNAL LIFE is just for a period of time and doesn’t last forever either.

    You major in minors, and minor it majors. You need to seek higher ground.

    Jesus commands us to love God, love ourselves, and love our neighbors


    Now tell me what love is. And it is not what you think it is, it is MORE.

    Mal 1:2 “I have always loved you,” says the LORD. But you retort, “Really? How have You loved us?” And the LORD replies, “This is how I showed My love for you: I loved your ancestor Jacob,

    Can’t you just see, feel, hear the sarcasm is that, “Really..........” It is almost, go love someone else because this is too hard.

    Why is it hard? Because the expectations are so high. It is CONDITIONAL.

    My personal experience is the ones who said, “you poor thing..........” Didn’t love me. The ones who said “you can do better than this” truly love me.

    And that is God’s message to us. YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS.

    Now the second half of Mal 1:2 also is an interesting definition of love. And the usual response to it is - that’s not fair!

    I for one enjoy the iron sharpening here. If done right, one goes to the Bible to prove their point, at least in my opinion. On second thought, it is not so much proving a point as revealing the truth.

    And that is obviously the issue and revelation here. What is the “touchstone” to test the truth? Some use the Bible, some use tradition, some use “experts” to do their thinking, Some use their own worldly thinking, etc..........

    But the following did come to mind this morning:

    1Co 11:19 But, of course, there must be divisions among you so that you who have God’s approval will be recognized!

    God is involved in the process here. He is listening. A reminder to me also.

    ““The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:40‬ ‭NIV‬‬ You missed a great opportunity --------------------------- A few thoughts. 1)The "brothers and sisters" is speaking to the sheep, referring to fellow Christians? Not clear here but when tested in the larger sense many of Jesus commands are for fellow Christians. Not fair you say? See point 4. 2) Some commentaries refer to this as nations and the reference is to Israel. 3) I am convinced We get in Gods way many times (not always) by helping people, They never get to the point of relying on God. Solving problems of others should not be an automatic response. 4)My point is discernment.

    This “no hell” concept is a recent LIBERAL view (becoming popular in the mid 1800’s) because it offends human nature. IT has not stood the test of sound doctrine.

    There seemed to be no sentiment in favor of labor conscription. Some attention was given to the efforts of the federal government to conserve human life in the war industries by safeguarding workmen against accident. At the last meeting of the association the applicability of the British munitions act to American conditions was discussed briefly. The suggestion of adopting these provisions in the United States, however, met with the immediate objections that, our conditions were different from those in England and that even in England the munitions act had been the cause of much dissatisfaction and unrest. According to an investigator of the London Times, it had been the cause of driving one-half of the workers of England to the verge of revolution.

    2) When California votes for succession, the northern half and conservative counties will vote to form a new state, ala West Virginia. Precedence.

    3) The rest of California will riot and the Federal govt will have to go in to stop the riots and control the border and immigration. Trouble makers in jail. undocumented foreigners deported.

    It will be bloody but short lived and then the expensive rebuilding starts.

    4) the unknown is foreign influence. Mexico I don’t think will want to get involved. They will have their own problems on their southern borders. They like the money but wouldn’t want to adopt a troubleesome rebellious state.

    God CANNOT be absent from Hell, otherwise He is no longer omnipresent.


    It is a mystery, we are not told much, so there is much speculation.

    Many of us whether we know it or not get our ideas about hell from cartoons we saw as kids. We think Satan reigns in hell and administers souls as they come down there.

    But if we really think about it, the one who administers and is in charge of hell is God. That is a scary uncomfortable thought, but he is sovereign or he is not.

    Good thoughts. Read the following recently. Interesting statement from Jesus himself as to why he came. Much to think about .........................

    Joh 18:37 Pilate said, “So You are a king?” Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

    The US Constitution is (still) silent on the subject of secession.


    Yes, but there is precedence.

    1) I think we would send in federal troops to stop the rioting and there will be

    2) The rural conservative areas will break away and form a new state and we will quickly approve that (West Virginia)

    If California were to secede, it would begin the unraveling of the entire nation, which is the goal of the open borders crowd — to break up the nation or breed it out of existence.


    The USSR is a good example to study. NO ONE wanted to put it back together again. Vairous countries including us, aligned ourselves with the new countires with the purpose of:

    DESTROYING USSR, BUT we said it for trade too.

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, who would align themselves with the new country? China for one. Others?

    So it is not just the internal liberals. It is part of the current UN agenda

    This is a perfect example of managing for what you don’t want instead of what you really want.

    It most likely would pass because it is an emotional issue and no one would think.

    1) But what of the conservative rural areas? We have precedence with West Virginia for some counties breaking off to form their own state. Some one please post that history here.

    2) So what is left is the major cities. Where do they go to for help? Russia, Mexico, others?

    What happens to what is left? There are so many fractions there that they most likely will destroy them selves? Then what?

    The goal is to shine the light on all the corruption, not to put Hillary in prison. Doing so would be a nice add on though.

    Everyone keep you eye on the ball, I think we will see some very creative light shining. Something like Colombo getting his adversaries to confess and do them selves in.

    Explain your position. Use words.

    Right now the government IS the economy. Changing that will have a lot of effect. There will be unintended consequences, both good and bad. When you close down a major employer, what happens? When a company lays employees off, what happens in the SHORT TERM?

    To drain the swamp, you have to be universally hated there.


    I was around during the 80’s when banks and savings and loans were closed. Old school bankers were brought in from retirement. They were NOT LIKED and not beholden to the community. A few were run into the ditch on country roads.
    But they got the job done and then left the community. A lot of tough decisions that had to be made were made.

    It looks like Trump is going to eliminate whole departments and change the dysfunctional federal government.


    A few thoughts.

    1) eliminating and starting over is what needs to be done. Fixing doesn’t seem to work.

    God used the flood with Noah as a new beginning.

    2) There will be unintended consequences, we need to anticipate those and discuss them as best possible so there are no surprises. It is the surprises we won’t like.

    3) Was reading in the Bible, God promised two blessing for every trouble. We will have trouble, but we will also have good things.

    Zec 9:12 Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.
