“A Place For Worship”
Where the word is life
Many today wonder how to deal with this commandment.
Deuteronomy 5:12-14 Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee. Six days thou shalt labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
Please listen to all three Sabbath Lessons as we cover the Old and New Testament scripture concerning the forth commandment.
Romans 9:13: As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
For GOD to hate and individual is an amazing statement. Esau was a twin born in 1892 B.C.. Esau and his twin brother Jacob (whom GOD later names Israel) are the first set of twins recorded in the Bible. We are then told there are two manner of people that shall come forth from these twin boys. One manner of people GOD loves the other Manner of people GOD hates. The book of Malachi was written around 430 B.C. and is the closing book to the Old Testament. Listen to what GOD says in his closing remarks in the Old Testament.
Malachi 1:2-3: I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau,
God recording in his word to the Jew and the Christian that GOD himself hates an individual named Esau is to be a warning sign. We are to learn from this man Esau what we are not to do, to be, or allow in our Christian walk. As we study the blood line and spirit of Esau it becomes clear why there can never be peace in the Middle East until Messiah returns.
This lessons covers the final two of the five sacrifices. We as Christians today are called to be living sacrifices as well as offer up the sacrifice of praise. The burnt offering and the peace offering were offerings that could be offered simultaneously. I believe a picture of our worship and discipleship are seen in these two sacrifices. As usual, the prior lessons on sacrifices should be listened to first for a better understanding of this sixth teaching on the subject.
We have had request for Pastor’s Sermons to be posted along with his teaching lessons which are already on line. Here is his first sermon of 2014, and we apologize for the audio quality. You will find the sermons section to be a bit more emotionally charged as well as pastors off the hip unrehearsed thoughts which are stated. His sermons will help your life as they have benefitted ours over the last 20 years. The insight we have been given on God and the working of his kingdom and his word in the earth have been inspiring. We so appreciate a pastor that has a real relationship with God, yet is real with the members of our congregation.
Pastor Kearse, we have enjoyed the example you have given us in your marriage, your family, and dealing with life. Thank you for teaching us not only God’s word, but the power of prayer, and God’s great love.
We Love Our Pastors
