Jesus presented in the Bible is often controversial to people in the
world. How so? Well, to some it is contentious to claim there is only
one way to heaven. Meaning, all other religions are worthless and
elevators lead people straight to hell. This is the gist of the message
when Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to
the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6) His words are an offense to the Jews
who reject Him as the Messiah and to all the other religious people on
earth that are excluded.
In this message I will present truth that will contradict what some
Christians believe since it does not fit their doctrinal viewpoint. The
Berean’s were commended for hearing Paul’s words and searching the
scriptures to verify his statements. If a man-made doctrine undermines
the Bible, the man-made doctrine has to go, or you will be a liar. Truth
is based upon facts and Christians should embrace it in all
In order to understand the fourth chapter of Romans, I will present a
revelation timeline of the Messiah and the Antichrist, beginning with
the prophet Isaiah and ending up with the Book of Revelation. If you do
not understand that God sent Jesus as the Messiah, and that Satan is
going to reveal his counterfeit messiah to the Jewish people, you
certainly won’t understand the events of the end times.
God's Messiah has come while Satan's messiah has yet to arrive. The
Jewish leadership 2,000 years ago rejected Jesus as their Messiah and
subsequent generations have continued the rejection. In this message we
will examine how the current Jewish leadership continues the trend, even
going so far as to insist that Christians accept their position that the
First Covenant is still in effect while they wait for their messiah.
This will of course lead to a violent confrontation by the liberals who
are furious that bible believers refuse to acknowledge their legitimacy.
At the heart of the matter is the seed of Abraham. Most Christians view
the seed of Abraham as plural and believe that the physical descendants
of Abraham are the seed mentioned by Paul. But this is simply not true.
Paul clarifies his statement in the letter to the Galatians by clearly
stating that the seed of Abraham is singular and refers only to Jesus.
The seed of Jesus consists of anyone who is born again. Any unsaved Jews
who reject Jesus as the Messiah are not counted among this number.
Some would consider anyone who holds to such a position to be
anti-Semitic. If that’s the case, then Jesus and the apostles must have
been anti-Semites as well! Are you willing to yield to the authority of
the Bible and be set free from the false doctrine propagated within the
church? The rhetoric of the Christ haters grows stronger every day and
one day they will be proud citizens of the Antichrist’s world
federation. Will you be among them?
Print out the sermon outline and let's examine the
Scriptures together Sunday morning at 9:00 AM PST.
Yours in Christ,
