Holidays Part 2

Holidays
holiday: A consecrated day, a religious festival. Now usually written Holy-day.
I. The keeping of religious holidays is virtually universal among the religions of this world.
A. Certain calendar days are deemed sacred or exalted above others and are deemed vital
aspects of the belief system. The deity is honored by their observance and dishonored by
their omission.

Casting Down Imaginations

(2CO 10:3-5) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

1. The devil is waging war on our minds. 2CO 10:3-5; EPH 6:11-12
a. The devil wants you to believe lies, because he’s the father of them and he uses them to draw your worship. JOH 8:44; JOH 4:24 c/w 1CO 10:20

The Basic Gospel

The Plan of Salvation: the Basic Gospel

*All scriptures taken from the King James Version 1611.

Someone professes Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Why do we need a saviour? What do we need saving from?

I Our problem: sin and death.
A. All have sinned.
(Romans 3:23) - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
B. The penalty of sin is death.
(Romans 6:23a) - For the wages of sin is death;
C. Adam's sin brought sin and death to all mankind.

The Lifting Up of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lifting Up of the Lord Jesus Christ
I. Three times in the Gospel of John Christ prophesied of the manner of His death as being lifted up.
A. In JOH 3:14, Christ drew a parallel to Moses’ lifting up of the serpent in the wilderness.
c/w NUM 21:8-9.
1. The lifted up serpent was by the order of God, as was the death of Christ.
2. Inasmuch as the serpent speaks of the curse of death from sin, so Christ would die
under the curse of sin. 2CO 5:21.
B. In JOH 8:28, Christ said to the Pharisees, “...When ye have lifted up the Son of man...”

The Church Meeting at Mizpeh

The Church Meeting at Mizpeh
(1 Samuel 7:3-12)
I. The ark of the covenant which was the token of God’s presence had been taken by the Philistines as a judgment of God on Israel. 1SAM 4:10-11.
A. The ark housed the written law of God which was Israel’s chief advantage.
HEB 9:4; ROM 3:1-2.
B. Well was it said of that tragedy, “...The glory is departed from Israel...” (1SAM 4:21-22).
C. The Philistines suffered a plague of emerods for demeaning the ark of God with
heathenism (1SAM 5 c/w PSA 78:66). So they sent it back to Israel with superstitious
golden images. 1SAM 6:4-5.

Christ's Better Rest

Christ’s Better Rest
(Hebrews 4:1-11)
I. The Book of Hebrews sets forth the superiority of Christ over angels, Moses, Levi and Joshua, etc.
A. Joshua of old did what Moses could not do: he brought a redeemed people into their God-
given inheritance. c/w ROM 8:3-4; GAL 3:10-13.
B. Joshua is spelled “Jesus” in ACT 7:45; HEB 4:8. Both names mean, “Jehovah saves” or
“Jehovah is salvation.” ISA 43:11 c/w MAT 1:21; 1JO 3:5.
C. As good and great as Joshua was, Paul shows the Hebrew Christians that Jesus is greater.

David: A Man After God's Own Heart

David: A Man After God’s Own Heart
I. David was many good things: prophet, psalmist, first king of the Judaic royal line, temple planner, ancestor of Jesus Christ, example of mercy, champion of faith, etc.
II. Scripture notes twice that David was a man after God’s own heart. 1SAM 13:14; ACT 13:22.
A. ACT 13:22 appears to be a hybrid of 1SAM 13:14, PSA 89:20-21 et. al.
B. 1SAM 13:14 was uttered when Saul “...had reigned two years over Israel” (1SAM 13:1).
1. Saul appears to have reigned forty years. ACT 13:21.
