Jesus' Came to Make Religion Easy- Podcast #11

legalism podcast salvation May 22, 2017

Paul encouraged us to not stray from the simplicity that is found in Christ. His thought was, well… we tend to make things infinitely more complex. We tend to move towards complex religious systems. 

Jesus, on the other hand, came to make things easy. 

Follow me here… 

Moses received the Law- ten commandments which, in Hebrew, were expressed using only ten words (they have a far more economical language than we do). 

613 more laws were then added to explain what those ten words meant. They had moral laws, civil laws, and religious laws.

You’d think that would be enough, but no… well intended leaders created the Mishnah, the oral tradition built around the laws, to explain what each one meant…

That wasn’t enough, either. Enter, the Talmud. 

Then the legal comments added by scribes and lawyers (and their “fences” and “hedges” around the law).

And, then along come the rabbis…

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, part 2- Podcast #10

holy spirit podcast May 15, 2017

In the previous episode we nailed down two fundamentals. In this episode we take the discussion further. 

First, we look at what church leaders from a variety of backgrounds have said. Oddly enough, they all use different language (some say “filled,” some say “baptized”) but they all agree. We need a deeper, fuller encounter with Holy Spirit. 

Second, we look at what the Bible says. We jaunt through all 5 examples in the Book of Acts where we see the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 

Did they lay hands on each other? Did they speak in tongues? Was there some sort of belief or formula or something else that happened? 

The answer is… (insert drum roll here)… no. There are no formulas. God is relational, not robotic. 

(Verses referenced… Go to Acts 2:1f., Acts 8:4f., Acts 9:5f., Acts 10, Acts 19:1f.)

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit- Podcast #9

holy spirit podcast May 08, 2017

Lots of people in church circles disagree over the Holy Spirit- who or what He is / does, and whether or not we have Him / it from the time of conversion or not. 

Some say you have the Holy Spirit, others say you don’t- that there’s more. We have create “classes” and “levels” of Christianity based on where you stand on this issue :-)

Others say you must speak in tongues…

Who’s right? 

Well… 

On the first issue, the Holy Spirit moves IN you at conversion AND there is another encounter that the Scripture refers to as “being baptized in the Holy Spirit). 

On the second issue, speaking in tongues is not the evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Though it’s a gift- and a great one- the text people generally point to prove that it is refers to speaking foreign human languages not conversing in a  “prayer language” (though we do see the prayer language in other passages).

Health + Healing- Podcast #8

healing health podcast May 01, 2017

 

This may sound strange- even in Heaven we'll choose health + healing. 

Think about it. Health + healing was available in the Garden of Eden AND we see the "leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations" in Heaven (see Genesis 1:29, Ezekiel 47:12, Revelation 22:2).

When Jesus walked the earth, He healed people in two ways. First, He performed miracles (iaomai). Second, He taught people how to be well (therapeuo) (see Matthew 8:15f., Acts 28:8-9). 

In other words, health is how things began AND it's how things "end” AND it’s how Jesus + the apostles outlined things to work. It IS your destiny, in other words, a destiny you can choose now.

No Faith Required- Podcast #7

faith healing podcast Apr 24, 2017

Jesus marvels at great faith, but a lack of faith never restrains Him.

Somebody told me this more than once...

If you don't have enough faith, Jesus can't move.

I've even seen this belief used to blame people for their own lack of healing, lack of provision, lack of other good thing their Heavenly Father is supposedly holding back from them.

Simply because they don't have enough belief?

Is faith really the most powerful force in He universe? Even stronger than the hand and bigger than the heart of God?

Hardly. Jesus commended great faith, but He never criticized a lack of it to people desperately needing His touch.

Live Inside-Out- Podcast #6

We tend to look at symptoms, but the Bible calls us to look at the root causes. 

So, yes, Jesus said things like, “You’ll know them by their fruit…” That is, you’ll know what kind of people they really are by what manifests around them. 

But, He reminds us that what you see on the outside- the fruit- is really an overflow of what’s going on beneath the surface. 

John writes about this in 3 John 2. He prays prosperity and health for us (i.e., like the Blessing of Abraham). But, he says that those things directly correlate to how our soul is doing. In other words, our soul is the thermostat (not the thermometer). It controls the outside, the external… 

Because of this, we have hope in this life, not just the life to come (see also 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 and Romans 6:6-11). In other words, total salvation starts now.

The Blessing of Abraham- Podcast #5

Somewhere, we bought the line that poverty is noble, that sickness is a blessing, and that Heaven is when things really start happening in our favor. Yet, a quick look at the Father of our faith shows us something radically different...

In fact, Paul writes that one of the reasons Christ redeemed us was "so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles..." (see Galatians 3:13-14). 

What does the blessing include? Well… 

  • Health, vitality- see Genesis 12:14, Genesis 14:14f., Genesis 21:1f., Genesis 17:1f., Genesis 12:10, 20:1
  • Financial, abundance- see Genesis 13:2, Genesis 14:14f., Genesis 14:18, Genesis 12:16, 20:14)
  • Spiritual awakening- see Romans 4:1f., Genesis 12:1f. 

Here’s the deal: Abraham's blessing "caught" his descendants in this life, while they were still living. They experienced the presence and power of the Kingdom of God now. In this life. As a person walking this planet. 

Furthermore… and this is...

Sozo- Podcast #4

Salvation isn’t just Jesus’ name (the name Jesus / Yeshua literally means “He saves”), it’s what He does. Furthermore, Jesus not only saves us FROM certain things, He also saves us TO an amazing life. 

The word in the New Testament used for “save” is sozo (this part of the Bible was originally penned in Greek). That word means far more than being “saved” from sin, though. The word is used to denote- 

  • forgiveness of sin, guilt, and condemnation
  • physical safety
  • spiritual freedom / deliverance
  • physical healing
  • raising the dead

Jesus moves us beyond a life of rules and legalism AND moves us into a life of supernatural meaning and spiritual power. In this episode we discuss what that looks like.

The Happy God- Podcast #3

Many times, we envision God as being anxious, stressed, or angry… 

Or we see Him as Holy. As a Judge. As Righteous. 

The Bible tells us that God is also joy, though. In fact, one third of the Kingdom of God is joy (Romans 14:17). And, we learn that the One who sits in Heaven laughs (Psalm 2:4), rejoices over His people with singing (Zephaniah 3:17), and empowers us to lean into His joy- as that is our strength (see Nehemiah 8). Indeed, the sound of the throne is one of joy (Psalm 89:15).

When Jesus came, it was a message of great joy (Luke 2: 10), and He communicated deep truths to His disciples so that their joy would overflow (see John 15:11). He even tells us to enter into the joy of our Master (Matthew 25:21). 

Did we miss something? 

We often equate tears, mourning, and seriousness with spirituality. And, we equate happiness and laughing with… well… irreverence (if expressed in a church service). 

Listen in… and see, sense,...

The Place of Confession- Podcast #2

 

I grew up in a constant state of anxiety, believing that if I didn’t keep up with my sins and then confess them that God wouldn’t be able to hear my prayers- that I would be distanced from Him. 

The truth is that grace isn’t restrained and your Heavenly Father’s love isn’t contained by a few words- or a lack of words. God has not only forgiven your sins- and forgotten them- He’s also determined that He won’t hold any future sins against you (see Romans 4:7-8).

In addition, when we look at the place of confession in the Bible we discover that confession is a gift to us. Through it, we learn the  incredible transformative power of relationships.
