  • Jonathan McPherson on John 3:13
    Text: Matthew 24:1-14.

    Theme: Christ's prophecy what is to come in the future.

    Intro: Christ prophesied Matthew 24 when He was departing from the temple: the disciples

    followed Him and asked Him a question that triggered the disciples' hearts, Jesus tells them that

    Jerusalem including the temple shall be destroyed. False religion, false doctrine and false gospel

    shall abound. False Christ including false prophets shall appear and seduce many, Nations and

    kingdom shall rise up against each other, nation betray nation and kingdom betray kingdom.

    Pestilence, natural disasters shall occur, believers shall be myrted, mankind betray one another,

    and the hearts of many shall wax cold toward God, parents and friends. The good news is, Christ

    comforts His disciple Matt 24:6b.

    Is there such a thing as a heavenly language. I hear some people say when you are baptized in the Holy Spirit that you speak in other tongues and this is the evidence you've been baptized in the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:5-6 One Lord, one faith, one baptism. Please explain. Thank you.

    Sister Mrs. Joanne Peters, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Ephesians 4:5 There is one body, one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling;

    You are the ONE BODY (as everyone else), the SPIRIT (of God; CHRIST) lives IN YOU, and gives YOU everything he is, this one hope (in God's eyes a finished work) is that through the WORK OF CHRIST IN YOU we will be delivered from sin and death (flesh, the ways of the world) into the glorious liberty of the Sons (daughters) of God; the EXACT LIKENESS OF CHRIST. You do nothing on your part, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD, you are just a vessel made only to hold CHRIST. You (sinful flesh) died on the cross of CHRIST; YOU were raised with Christ and Christ lives for you, gracing you with all he is; love, peace, truth, perfection, mercy, faithfulness, wisdom, understanding, knowledge, etc.

    Ephesians 4:6 One Lord (Christ), one faith (and Christ GIVES you his (ONE) faith), one baptism (you were baptised into Christ death; your flesh died with his flesh and was resurrected with him in a NEW BODY (this one body; the body of Christ in us).

    Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptised into JESUS CHRIST (not water) were baptised into his death.

    Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priest of God and Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
