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.
Who Are The Sheep? confirms the lambs spoken about by scripture always relate to Yahweh’s Israelite people that are oftentimes “lost” to Christ due to their personal sins. This sermon explains preachers are to be shepherds yet when wolves adorn sheep’s clothing they scatter the flock. Also discussed is the Covenant People’s Book “Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing” available for purchase before a number of retail outlets.
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.
Parable of the Pharisee examines Yahshua’s teaching against self-righteousness found only in the Gospel of Luke 18:10-14. This sermon reminds the faithful that we must be meek at all times and resist the Pharisee (or “separatist”) that condemns his own people. Christ says the meek inherit the earth thus this lecture provides several reasons why and delivers several distinguishable characteristics of the hypocrite.
Parable of the Sheep proves the similarities of Matthew and Luke’s rendering of Yahshua’s parable to Thomas’ version in saying 107. Why did the “Good Shepherd” come only for the “lost sheep” of the house of Israel? Scripture clearly equates Yahweh’s chosen people to gullible lambs making this allegorical teaching of Christ essential for those who claim to be faithful yet withhold repentance from their brethren.
The Two Debtors scrutinizes Marcion’s influence upon the canonization of scripture regarding Yahshua’s parable found only in Luke 7:36-50. This allegory is an attempt at getting Simon the Pharisee to see through our Messiah’s eyes (regarding repentant sinners) thus this sermon endeavors to teach this same moral tale regarding Marcion of Sinope. Yahshua the Christ forgives both debt and sin to remorseful Israelites!
