Presentations on the mechanics of the Gospel. From the Bible Bible Training Series 2015.
An introductory Bible study on the gospel, the good news concerning Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the revelation of the Father.
Those who follow Christ will take up their cross deny themselves and follow Him. The cross is about self denial. It is the continual denial of the flesh for Christ condemned sin in the flesh. His death on the cross was the supreme manifestation of self denial and love for the world.
The Gospel process is expressed in John 16:8. A Conviction of Sin, righteousness and Judgement. These three steps are expanded in Matt 5:1-11 and also in the three parts of the Sanctuary.
Paul tells us that if we receive any other gospel than what he and the apostles preached let them be accursed. There is great confusion concerning the gospel as there has always been. The gulf between wallowing in the depression of our sinfulness and the simply choosing to ignore our sinful condition through the power of positive thinking is always lurking. This presentation building on the previous #GOS02 pinpoints the critical process of conviction of sin and righteousness. While knowing we are completely unworthy we claim the righteousness of Christ. In the full acceptance of our sinful condition we take the hand of Christ and accept His precious gift of righteousness. Such a simple process yet so completely misunderstand by the majority. This process is clearly outlined in Sermon 14 1893 by A.T Jones. It needs careful study and application. Presented Aug 18, 2015

Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
As Abraham is the father of the faithful, he represents the work of the old and new covenant in our lives. The Old working death in us in order that we might be raised to life in the new
