Basic Biblical Beliefs – The Mystery Of God

      19980208 Basic Biblical Beliefs - The Mystery Of God - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Why can we not see #God?  I have heard many people say they would believe in God if He would just show Himself.  What did God tell Moses when he asked something similar?  We cannot even understand all that we have seen of the creation much less the Creator.  Does the mystery of God make Him more or less worthy of worship?  Is it also a kindness that He doesn’t reveal all of Himself to us?  When you see a mystery are you drawn in or are you repelled?  God did give Moses a glimpse of Himself and later He showed Himself to all of us as well in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.

      19980201 Basic Biblical Beliefs - Give Attendance To Doctrine - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Who is #right?  Who is #wrong?  Everybody has an #opinion, #angle, or #spin on it.  What does the #Creator of the Universe have to say about it?  This website is called Find Bible Truth.  So what did Brother Tommy have to say about what the Bible tells us about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and how they should affect our lives.  We will go through this subject for many weeks, starting with our beliefs or doctrine.  Did Jesus negate anything found in the Old Testament or did He take it further?  We were warned in the New Testament that there would come a time when people would not endure sound doctrine.  What is the apostles’ creed and other statements of Faith?  Do you know what you believe?  Does it show?

Liberty In Law – Law of Love

      20050522 Liberty In Law - Law Of Love - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Oops, I made you wait long enough for the #GoodNews that #Jesus brought to us after we figured out we could not possibly keep the #Law.  If the Ten Commandments show us that we cannot measure up to God’s holy standard, how can we possibly hope to enter His presence much less have a relationship with Him?  What commandment did Jesus give us before He sacrificed Himself for us and defeated death through His resurrection?  Even back in 2005, Brother Tommy saw the rampant examples of the law of hate.  It is easy to hate or at least not to love each other.  How can we keep this new commandment?  God thought it, Jesus brought it, and the Holy Spirit wrought it.  How does loving God fully and our neighbor as ourself automatically keep the Ten Commandments?

Liberty In Law – Law of Legacy – Preservation of Priority

Far from being #outdated, the #10commandments are the underpinnings of current #society.  Eight of the ten commandments contain a negative statement about what not to do.  But, each one actually carries both a positive and a negative.  What is involved in having no other god before the one true God?  Have most atheists come to a well studied intellectual conclusion that there is no God or is there another reason why people embrace that mindset?  Is it only alternative religions that we are being warned about in this first commandment?   What, if any, is the difference between Lord and God?  How highly revered was the name Jehovah by the Jewish people and priests?  What can we learn from what God says about Himself?  What does the name Emmanuel tell us about His plan to save us from the law?  How did the plagues destroy the false gods of Egypt?  Are there parallels between us and the wandering Israelites?  Who or what do we worship before God today?  Are we serving self or God?

Christ Is The Answer – Reverence In Worship

      20010107 Christ Is The Answer - Reverence In Worship - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

When Paul wrote Corinthians was he being a #mysogynist?  Do you think it was easier for the men to hear that they were to submit to #God in everything?  Consider the atmosphere in Corinth at the time.  How were the prostitutes recognized at that time?  Many people seize on the headship of man over woman in this passage but there are three headships mentioned here.  What happens to the image of God when we fail to recognize His headship?  Did Christ recognize God’s authority over Him even though He was part of the Trinity?  What is the difference between reverence and practice when it comes to this message of purity?  How are men cautioned about authority?  Reverential worship requires inward purity and outward modesty to participate.

Christ Is The Answer – The Discipline of Dedication

      20001029 Christ Is The Answer - The Discipline Of Dedication - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

What should a #Christian do about personal #behavior that they have #questions about but is not explicitly denounced in the #Bible?  Are we willing to set certain activities aside for the glory of God and the good of others?  God offers us guidance, deliverance, assurance, and sustenance.  How are these provisions meant to offset the temptations we face?  What examples can we see in the wandering Israelites that parallel the struggles we face?  What is the danger of believing that we are in good standing?  1 Corinthians 10:13 is the ultimate verse to help us with temptation.

Christ Is The Answer – The Believer’s Body

Bible Audio Blog
      20000910 Christ Is The Answer - The Believer's Body - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

#MyBodyMyChoice is a much quoted phrase right now.  Is that true according to the #Bible for #Christians?  The Corinthians were surrounded by a culture that said sexual immorality was of no consequence.  Sound familiar?  What does Christian liberty mean?  Are there any limits and what are they?  Should we consider the effect on others?  Will certain actions turn into deadly habits?  Why does Paul bring food into this discussion?   Everything was created for God’s glory including our bodies.  If we are grafted into the body of Christ as Believers, what happens when we give in to sexual immorality?  Many are horrified when a church is defiled but where does Paul say the temple of God is?  How can we avoid sexual sin?  Paul ends on a positive note exhorting us to use our bodies to glorify God.

We are grieving for the loss of a mother, sister, and a daughter who was also a cofounder of this site, Jeanetta Jones Daniel.  But, we know by her love that she was a Believer in Jesus Christ and that she is in a much better place with the Lord now.

Biblical Basis for Missions – The Christ

Bible Audio Blog

Missions without #Jesus Christ is just #SocialWork.  Social work may be well intentioned, but at best it is only a temporary fix to an infinite problem.  The #World waited a long time for the #Savior.  Why do we need a savior?  Did He have to be both God and man?  Is there any more to the mission message than Jesus?  What lessons did Christ teach us about God?  Jesus taught us about the worth of each individual as well as our inherited propensity to sin and our need to be saved from it.  He also talked a lot about the Kingdom of God.  Are there boundaries to this kingdom?  Was the Savior’s mission to serve or to be served?  Jesus Christ is our example, so what then should our mission be?
