DUNCAN/Parables against the Pharisees

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew 21:28-32. In this passage, Jesus tells a parable directed towards the religious leaders of Israel. He wants to emphasize that there are two responses to His own ministry, and show these spiritual leaders their true condition.

DUNCAN/By what authority?

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 21:23-27.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/The Lord will provide

The last verses in the book of Revelation (22:16-21) highlight the glory and deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

DUNCAN/The fruitless fig tree

If you have your Bibles in hand, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew 21:18-22.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Enter by the narrow gate

In Revelation 22:12-15, the Lord Jesus Christ is the one speaking. He gives some facts about His coming, His return to earth. First He says, “Behold, I am coming soon.”

CRAWFORD/School funding

The Mississippi Senate wants to “fully fund” the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP), well, sort of.

DUNCAN/The triumphal entry

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 21:1-11.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Favorable presence of the living God

Revelation 22:1-5 is the last vision the apostle John records for us in this book.

CRAWFORD/Ballot initiative proposal a scam

The media does a great disservice to the people of Mississippi when it declares that a concurrent resolution under consideration in the Legislature would “restore the public ballot initiative process.”

DUNCAN/The compassion of the King

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 20:29-34.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Enduring hardship

Hebrews chapter eleven gives a list of faithful people who endured hardship and deprivation because they were waiting on the fulfillment of God’s promise.

LOWRY/Don’t rewrite books

Anyone who thought the politically correct rewriting would stop at the irreverent author of such children’s classics as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox” was, of course, sadly mistaken. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Living by faith in Christ alone

The beginning of Revelation chapter 21 gives us a view of the incorruptible inheritance God has prepared for His redeemed people. Verse one reads, “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.”

MEENA/Telecom has transformed world

A firm focus on the future is endemic to the culture of every successful technology company. At C Spire, we don’t spend much time reflecting on the past. Ask any of my 1,900 coworkers, and they’ll likely tell you some version of the same thing. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Satan’s work is limited by Christ

There are various views on Revelation 20:1-3, the passage we are looking at this week. Many godly people have interpreted these verses differently. I hope to extract principles out of it that have continual application for us.

DUNCAN/Kingdom rewards for faithful disciples

I would invite you to turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 19:27-30. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Christ will guide His people

Revelation 7:9-17 depicts the joyful redeemed of God from “every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages … clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb” (verses 9-10).

CRAWFORD/State retirement is broke

PERS is in trouble again. The PERS board jacked up the employer contribution rate again. And everybody lived happily ever after. 

DUNCAN/The impossibility of salvation

Please turn in your Bibles with me to Matthew 19:16-26. Jesus is teaching that those of us who enter into the kingdom and remain in the kingdom have to recognize their need, and have to manifest a childlike trust and a childlike humility as being members of that kingdom.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Bible is the story of redemption

The Bible is a story of redemption, an appeal to sinful mankind to consider the glory and righteousness of the one, true living God and to turn from sin to the salvation He offers in Christ Jesus, the Savior appointed and given by God to us.
