It has taken Pastor / Teacher John MacArthur over 30 years to teach through the New Testament. He finished just recently. How about your Pastor? Now in the time the Lord has left Pastor MacArthur he has turned to the Old Testament to teach the foundation upon which Jesus Stands.
Teachers of Scripture, the Pastors of our churches, the Shepherds of HIS FLOCK of which YOU are His Sheep—–His TRUE Shepherds MUST focus on opening the minds of their congregations to understand SCRIPTURE; NOT how to live well in a world that is passing away before our eyes. That means they need to Preach and Teach through the Scriptures book by book. That is called EXPOSITIONAL Teaching.
Jesus said that HE IS the SUBJECT of the ENTIRE BIBLE. That includes the OLD TESTAMENT which is the Bible that Jesus taught from. The first sermon that Jesus gave when HE came out of the Tomb, was on the Road to Emmaus. He preached about HIMSELF from the Books of Genesis through Malachi to two disciples.
Open your Bible and read Luke 13 – 49. “26 -27 Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His Glory. And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets JESUS explained to them the things concerning Himself in ALL the SCRIPTURES”. The Messiah JESUS came to die for the sins of ALL Mankind so those who turned to His Cross in REPENTANCE would have Eternal life in Heaven. Those who do not repent have Only ETERNAL HELL to look forward too.
You need to understand the Pre-incarnate Christ, Jesus Before the Manger. That is the ONLY WAY you will understand the Majesty, and the Glory of JESUS the SON of GOD, the MESSIAH of ISRAEL and the CHRIST of HIS CHURCH….The Greatest Story EVER TOLD… AND the Foundation upon which HE STANDS.
“Jesus came IN Fulfillment of the Old Testament so HE Could FULFILL the Old Testament.
1. The Lord Jesus Christ declared HE Is in the Old Testament and Revealed it in His Teachings.
2. The Apostles and the Disciples fully believed in HIM, because they understood the Old Testament.
3. The Apostles and Prophets preached The Gospel of Jesus Christ based on the Old Testament.
4. The writers of the New Testament based their teachings in the Old Testament.
5. His story was in the New Testament, but His Bible was the Old Testament” Pastor MacArthur.
IT’S ALL THEIR IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BLOW THE DUST OF THE BOOK AND BEGIN TO SERIOUSLY READ IT IN 2015.
Then maybe, just maybe you will not be fooled into believing the Coming Lies of the FALSE MESSIAH, Satan’s Puppet; the One World Leader called the Anti-Christ.
