Few realize that Jesus was constantly opposed by those that claimed to be of Abraham's seed.
He rebuked them more than any other group. Why?
Also, he indicated by his question to Nicodemus that this TEACHER should have known of the new birth. Why? The new birth is essential to have a relationship of justification, sanctification, and absolute, future glorification of the people. They hear the Shepherd's voice and are known by him. Others have their ladders leaning against the wrong building.
Great Sermon! Coming from Dispensationalism and Arminianism, I never thought I'd come to understand what Armageddon is all about. Thank God alone, for this lecture is clear and thorough exposition of biblical meaning of Armageddon. I was blind to so many bible truths, and to be sure was lost while a member of a conservative evangelical church for many years! To find a Baptist church that still faithfully teach Christ's doctrine is rare in our age. Conservative Evangelical preachers ought to listen to this lecture. To God alone be the glory.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
When a practicing homosexual reads this list he may identify himself as being "sexually immoral" but how could he not clearly understand that "adulterers ... will [not] inherit the kingdom of God"?
However, in Christian denominations he's observed that adultery "cleansing" works this way:
After the two engaged in adultery are outed, each divorces their current spouse (leaving strings of kiddos behind), marry one another and repent as they fall asleep in the marital embrace on their satin honeymoon pillows. Voila! Their adultery is washed away. Whiter than snow. Instantly vanished. Gone.
At this, the homosexual wonders:
"How do these heterosexuals make their damning sins go ---- poof --- but I have no way to wash away my 'immorality' and also get sprung into Heaven?"
