Portrait of the King looks at our Redeemer being a seeker of the lost, a waiting father, the God of grace and a moral governor of all Israelite people from His parables as found in Luke’s Gospel. This Covenant Gathering broadcast scrutinizes Christ’s specific allegories of the lost sheep, lost coin, prodigal son, fruitless fig tree and goats to hopefully instill faith in those “lost sheep” that have yet to hear His voice.
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.”
The LORD Reigns! is an expository sermon dealing with the entire 97th Psalm which teaches “You who love Yahweh hate evil.” According to this song of David “Light is sown for the righteous” thus this lecture attempts to explain why all who boast in worthless idols will be put to shame. We also examine the title “lord” and learn that Yahweh is in control of all things including the seasons and weather.
Esau Have I Hated covers highlights from the book of the minor prophet Malachi by establishing Yahweh still loves Jacob (the Israelites) and literally hates Esau (the Edomites). There are false prophets among our people! God will curse the deceiver and his offspring! This sermon provides a brief overview of the Old Testament book and attempts to show many parallels to the four New Covenant Gospels.
One Spirit Unto the Father  proves the apostle Paul taught the Christian Body must be established in unity on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets” from his New Testament letters to Romans 15:4-7, Ephesians 2:14-22 and 2nd Timothy 2:14-16. This sermon confirms the Word was always meant to be assembled into written text and was accepted by the second generation Christians to authenticate doctrine.
Parable of the Coin appears only in Luke 15:8-10 and is technically a continuation of His Parable of the Lost Sheep. This sermon fully explores all three steps the woman of Christ’s allegory took to find her lost coin which are “light, sweep and seek.” Our Savior Jesus is the Light of the world (John 9:5) that came to find the lost (Luke 19:10) making this lecture on seeking the mislaid imperative to the Christian walk.
Parable of the Leaven looks at one of the shorter allegories of Christ as found in Matthew, Luke and Thomas (saying 96). This sermon proves that both women and leaven can be used metaphorically in scripture as righteous OR wicked thus Yahshua’s parable on the Kingdom can be applied on numerous levels. Verification is supplied from the Gospel of Mark and Paul’s epistles to the Corinthians and Galatians.
The Great Banquet examines the parable of Christ from the Gospel of Thomas (saying 64) and both Matthew 22:1-14 and Luke 14:15-24 to clarify why gentiles were “grafted” into the Covenant. Yahshua taught this allegory against Pharisees who desired His death thus this narrative has the distinction of becoming a personal rebuke! Also discussed is Isaiah 25:6 and the latter marriage supper of the Lamb.
Prince of this World looks at who dominates earthly politics and is deemed by Christ to be god of this world age. Yahweh is in control of all things including our adversary who is able to tempt us with “all the kingdoms of the world” because they’re his to offer. God OR mammon! What’s your choice? Do you obey Yahweh to inherit eternal life or bow to the prince of this world and become heir to dung?
Not of the World explores our Redeemer’s teachings on Christian suffering and godly persecution directly from the Gospel of John 15:15-25. What is the genuine Christian walk? Why are the faithful hated of this world? Who are the enemies of God? This gloomy sermon features Don Spears during the intermission and attempts to explain why only the Saints will experience true anguish during the tribulation.
