Lessons From Luke: The Resurrection of Christ is technically the sixth part from CPM’s mini-study on the existence of our kinsman Redeemer based mostly on Luke’s writings. What is Easter Sunday? What happened to the disciples? Should DSCI tolerate Easter bunnies? This sermon tells the resurrection story from all four Gospels and highlights the importance of this victory to the faithful seed of Israel’s race.
All Fools’ Sermon is a unique April Fool’s Day broadcast examining the topic of fools and foolishness in the Holy scripture. Our hope with this lecture is to aid in stopping the willful deception (or lies) against our people by starting with ourselves. This Covenant Gathering episode delves into the Psalms and Proverbs before scrutinizing two detailed parables of Yahshua; the Rich Young Fool and Five Foolish Virgins.
Parable of the Pounds scrutinizes one of the most controversial statements made by Christ: “Those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them – bring them here and kill them in front of me (Luke 19:27).” This sermon uses the Gospels of Matthew 25:14-30 and Luke 19:11-27 to explain Jesus’ allegory of the “pounds” or talents which teaches on the second advent and not wasting opportunities.
Examples of Faith (Part #1) is the first of two sermons dedicated to studying the examples of faithfulness outlined in the eleventh chapter of the epistle to the Hebrews. This Covenant Gathering broadcast defines the word “faith” before detailing specific works of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham and Sarah from the book of Genesis alongside their precise listing in the “Faith Hall of Fame” found in Hebrews 11.
The Good Shepherd compares the testimonial of king David in Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd” to a statement made by Christ “I AM the Good Shepherd.” Yahshua said He came only for the lost sheep of the house of Israel! This sermon from our series in Luke explains the scriptural usage of the words shepherd, flock, sheep and fold while attempting to clarify several motives for Jesus’ first advent.
What is Faith? is a sermon that answers the question solely from the pages of the New Testament and provides Christians with the Biblical definition of FAITH. Also scrutinized in this discourse are two parables of Christ regarding the coming Kingdom and faith which are both attributed to mustard seeds. This look at scriptural devotion is dedicated to increasing faith among the loyal seed of Israel’s race.
Cost of Discipleship outlines the price Christians pay to genuinely follow Christ from a teaching found only in Luke 14:25-33. This brief sermon stresses the importance of loving this world less than Yahweh and clarifies why Yahshua teaches; “Whoever comes to me and does not hate his father and his mother and his brothers and his sisters and his wife and his children and even himself, he cannot be my disciple.”
Unrighteous Mammon deals with an anti-world teaching of Christ found in Luke 16:11-12; “If ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s who shall give you that which is your own?” Therefore this sermon clarifies the difference between Yahweh and “mammon” or valueless treasures.
Satan the Enchanter examines the temptation of Christ from all four Gospels and attempts to provide a relatively complete overview of the children of Satan. How are tares different than wheat? Are we the literal children of Yahweh? This broadcast on Euro Folk Radio examines the three distinct “temptations” the Devil used against Yahshua and corrects the verses this adversary of God attempted to pervert.
Pharisee and the Publican explains Yahshua’s parable about humility with supporting verses from Psalm 135:2, Isaiah 1:15 and Matthew 23:12. Why was Yahweh more pleased with the sinful tax collector? Did the Pharisee have any good intentions? This humbling allegory of Christ is found only in the Gospel of Luke 18:9-14 and clarifies the need for repentance and meekness when serving our heavenly Father.
