The Outer Darkness


One of the spookiest quotes from Jesus (and one of the most widely misunderstood) is found in Matthew Chapter 8 where he speaks of casting "children of the kingdom into outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." People often quote this passage in reference to the futures of those who call themselves Christian, but really aren't. Most of us assume that "the outer darkness" is synonymous with Hell, and for good reason because many good teachers make that same assumption. But upon further and deeper investigation, the "outer darkness" that Jesus refers to isn't Hell. These "children of the kingdom" are not being judged or condemned away from Heaven, but rather they are being denied access to a particular privilege in the "Kingdom Of Heaven" that they falsely assumed they would have access.

Seeking First The Kingdom Of God


In concluding our study of the famous Sermon On The Mount, Jesus touches upon several key doctrines that have become infamously quoted out of context on many occasion, "judge not lest ye be judged" being among them. Other famous quotes in these passages are, "you can't take it with you," "you can't serve God and money," "seek first the Kingdom of God," "cast not pearls before swine," "ask and it shall be given you," "seek and you will find," "do unto others," "the straight and narrow path," "beware of false prophets," "depart from me, I never knew you," and last but not least, "build your house upon the rock." All of these famous quotes will be explained and put in context of Jesus' entire sermon, distinguishing fact from cliche'.

Prayer & Tongues: Doctrines Of Demons


In Matthew Chapter 6, Jesus gave us some instructions on how to make solid investments towards our future in Heaven. He gave us instructions on how to fast and specifically HOW NOT to fast, how to give and specifically HOW NOT to give and then most importantly, how to pray and specifically HOW NOT to pray. He stressed the importance of keeping it private between you and God and then He stressed the importance of keeping it real without fake platitudes or repetitive phrases. In discussing these passages, we find enough material to offend just about everyone, the classic fundamentalists as well as the modern age charismatics. But as with all things, before accepting or rejecting what I say in this broadcast, keep an open mind while filtering everything through the scrutiny of Scripture.

Kingdom Of Heaven / Kingdom Of God


As we focus on Matthew's exhaustive record of Jesus' Sermon On The Mount, we learn that the "Kingdom of Heaven" is different from the "Kingdom of God". All throughout the book of Matthew, it seems that the "Kingdom Of Heaven" is tied directly to the future rule of Jesus Christ over the Earth. Knowing this really helps us understand what Jesus meant when he said things like, "the meek shall inherit the earth." Who are the meek and what is the inheritance? And WHEN will the meek inherit the Earth? And how? Jesus said that "their righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees" and they must "be perfect just as their Father in Heaven is perfect." How could any of us possibly fulfill those requirements? Fortunately for all of us, Jesus also began this lecture by personally claiming responsibility for fulfilling the Law on our behalf. "I did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law till all be fulfilled."
