This morning brother Larry O’Mahoney shared about the living water that Jesus gives to all who thirst. Those who have been Born Again thirst no more for anything other than more of that Living water. The evidence of the changed life is Repentance and Forgiveness and Reconciliation, as seen in the story of the Prodigal Son (See Luke 15:11-32). To watch the full video from this morning, just click on this link!...

In the first part of this chapter Jesus sent a message of encouragement to John the Baptist, and spoke to the crowds about John and his ministry. John came as the last in a long line of prophets and was the last of the Old Testament prophets. Jesus actually said that John was the greatest of all the prophets and yet as great as John was, the least member in the Kingdom of Heaven was greater than John, having much better blessings and privileges than John could ever have dreamed of. People......

To encourage His Twelve Apostles, and likewise ourselves, Jesus told them that God has everything under control. That we should not fear those that can hurt or kill our body, but after that can do no more, since they can’t get at your soul. Rather we should have a fear of God who can destroy both body and soul in hell (See Matt.10:27-31; 2 Thess.1:9; 2 Thess. 2:8; Phil.3:19). The same God who can do that though, has a loving concern for His own, and the very hairs of our head are numbered and we......

We know from Matt.10:1-15 that the instructions and commands that Jesus gave to the twelve apostles were very specific. But when we come to vv.16ff we begin to see principles that also include other future missions. However, vv.16-20 include some elements that would only be fulfilled in a Jewish setting, such as the disciples being delivered to councils and that they would scourge them in their synagogues. These things certainly didn’t happen in relation to the commission given in Matt.10:1-15, or in relation to the mission of the further 70 that Jesus sent out in Lk.10:1-23. However, when Jesus spoke of them being brought before governors and kings for Jesus’ name sake,......

Today we celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the grave. Obviously we have to back up a moment and speak of Jesus’ death by crucifixion, and why that event took place. The Resurrection is an Essential Truth of the Christian Faith, since if Jesus did not rise again, just as He had said, then as Paul pointed out in 1 Cor.15:1-19, the whole Christian religion is false! So Paul went to great lengths to show how important Christ’s Death, Burial, and Resurrection were. Let us not think for one moment that Jesus’......

It is very important to read verses in their context. If we don’t, we can come to the wrong conclusions. For instance, in  the verses we looked at in this sermon, Matt.10:5-10, you could conclude that Jesus and His Gospel is not for Samaritans and Gentiles, but only for the lost sheep of the tribes of Israel. But this was a specific short-term missions trip, in which Jesus sent the twelve into Jewish homes, villages, towns and cities. They could expect good hospitality from their Jewish neighbours. But the crunch is that if these Jewish homes, towns,......

We only looked at Matt.10:1-4 at Jesus’ commissioning of The Twelve Apostles. I think that a big mistake is made when people open up their Bible and see bits that they like and think to themselves, “Oh, that sounds good, I think I’ll have that!” Well, they might read Matt.10:1 and think to themselves, “Jesus gave us power and authority over all the devils and over all sickness and all disease. I claim that too!” I would like to ask those same people if they see their name listed in the following verses, which is a very specific list. This text is......

In this last section of Matt.9:27-31 we have the account of two blind men (perhaps for Matthew to affirm every event with 2 or 3 witnesses, according to Deut.19:15; 2 Cor.13:1), who followed after Jesus, calling or crying out, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And of course they were seeking “pity” from the one that they perceived, though not with natural vision, as “The Messiah“! It is very important to comprehend who the Christ or Messiah is. When Jesus asked the Pharisees who they thought “The Messiah was?” they replied that He would be “The Son......

Here is a double miracle. It is possible to differentiate between these two miracles, but at the same time, they do run into each other. First you have Jairus’ a ruler of the synagogue, whose only daughter is lying at the point of death. He begs and worships Jesus, and procures Jesus to come quickly to his home to lay hands on his daughter for healing. But then you have an interruption. A woman who has had an issue or fountain of blood or a hemorrhage for 12 years, came up in......
