SCBC Lord’s Day #3 (2022)

Then Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up what seems good to him. Here are the oxen for the burnt offering and the threshing sledges and the yokes of the oxen for the wood. All this, O king, Araunah gives to the king.” And Araunah said to the king, “May the LORD your God accept you.” But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God that cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

SCBC Sunday School: Exposition of 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Chapter 30:1 Of the Lord’s Supper

1689 30 – Historical Development (Key Theologians)

  • Difference between Apostolic Fathers (offering sacrifice to the LORD) and the Scriptures (From the LORD to the church. God expressing His grace to the believers)
  • Luther – Babylonian Captivity (1520) – critique on RCC’s transubstantiation. Christ’s presense is within the element (the elements house the presence of Christ- consubstantiation)
  • Zwingli – The LORD’s presence is not in the element but in the hearts of the believers
  • Calvin – stood between Zwingli and Luther. The effectiveness of the LORD’s supper is not inherent in the elements. It is effectual by the objective power of the Spirit to the communicants who participate by faith for their nourishment. It is a Biblically prescribed objective means of grace as part of the RPW (Regulative Principle of Worship).
  • A.A Hodge and Charles Hodge – The Spiritual essence was contained within the subjective recollections of the participant as he remembered Christ’s death by recalling the cross and the doctrines of the atonement.
  • BIBLICAL VIEW: The LORD’s supper is God’s ordained sermon illustration of Christ’s death and resurrection.
  • Heart and mind should be transported back to the Calvary. Refreshing of our hearts and minds of what Christ’s did for us on the cross.

SCBC Morning Message: Expository Series on the Book of Romans (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Verse: Rom 11:15

  1. The Present Consequence of Jewish Rejection of Christ v. 15a
  2. The Anticipated Consequence of Jewish Acceptance of Christ v. 15b

“When we receive the LORD Jesus Christ, we receive Him for his whole Person and Work, His exclusive claim, authoritative revelation, and righteous judgment.

If Jewish rejection resulted in Gentiles' blessings, how much more will their acceptance be?

"Men only wanted to receive Christ as Savior from hell but not as Savior from their darling sins.

"You can never be reconciled to God if you accept Jesus partially. Lay down your weapons and intellectual arguments against God, and submit to Him as Savior and LORD."

Application: Don’t stop proclaiming the gospel, though you are rejected by your family, friends, etc.

SCBC Afternoon Message: Expository Series on the Book of Hebrews (Bro. Ghan)

Text: Heb 1:13 – The Supremacy and Authority of Christ – His Enemies are Defeated
The Right hand of God – Place of Authority and Kingship overall.

  1. The Enemies of Christ
    1. Sin
      • It separated men from God – 1 Jn 3:4, Gen 3:10-11
      • Its wages is death – Rom 6:23
      • It is abominable to God’s sight – Hab 1:13
      • It affects all humanity – Gen 6:5
      • It courts God’s wrath together with the sinners – Psalm 7:11, 5:4-5
      • It remains in the believers – Rom 7:17
        “We must underestimate remaining sin, it must be mortified.”
    2. Satan
      • He is the means of introducing death to the world
      • He is the sworn enemy of Christ – Eph 6:12, 1 Pet. 5:8
        “Christians must be watchful and prayerful, since they are Satan’s targets.”
      • His Tactics:
        a. Tempting – 1 Cor 7:5 (Married Couple), Mt 4 (Jesus). Satan knows are weakness.
        b. Accusing – Rev 12:10, Job 1:6 – The accuser of the brethren
        c. Condemning – Rev 2:10
    3. The World
      • To love the world is to court God’s hatred – 1 John 2:15-17 – lust of the eyes & flesh, & pride
      • To befriend the world is to be God’s enemy – James 4:4
      • To amasse worldly riches (love of money) is evil – 1 Tim 6:9-10, 2 Tim 4:10
    4. Death: It is the last enemy – 1 Cor 15:26, Gen 5
  2. The Triumph of Christ – He Triumphed by His death, resurrection, and present reign (Heb 9:22)
    • Over sin – Rom 8:2-3, Rom 6:23,
      “There is no other way to be triumphant over sin.”
      • Christ was made sin (legally) 2 Cor 5:21
    • Over Satan: He assumed a human form so that He could die and destroy the one who has the power death – Heb 2:14-15
    • Over the World: He voluntarily laid down His life – Gal. 1:4
    • Over Death – John 14:19

“The fact that Jesus lives is a pledge that all who believe in him shall he saved. He has power over all our spiritual foes, and he can deliver us from the hands of our enemies, and from all temptations and trials.”
