  1. New Heaven and New Earth: Will the Circle Be Unbroken? 3rd Talk on Heaven

    Will the circle be unbroken?

    1. Doesn’t the Bible teach the earth’s fiery end?
    2. Is the promise of renewal real or just a word-picture?
    3. What will the new heavens and earth be like?
    4. What will it be like to abide eternally in God’s Presence?
    5. What will our relationship with Christ be in heave?

    2 Peter 3:5-6

    For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.

    2 Peter 3:7

    But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

  2. Heaven – Echoes of the Garden, End of Suffering, Freedom Unimaginable

    Genesis 3:8-9

    And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool[a] of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”[b]

    John 14:23

    23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.

    Revelation 21:2-3.  (An echo of the garden)

    And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place[a] of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people,[b] and God himself will be with them as their God.[c]

    Romans 8:22-23

    22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

    Psalm 103:1-5

    Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    1 John 3:2 – Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

    John 20:15-16 – 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”

    Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic,[a]“Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).

    John 20:26 –  Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”

    John 20:29 –Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

    John 20:27-8 – 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.”28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”

    1 Corinthians 15:50 – I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

  4. Teach Sound Doctrine. There is One Source of Life. It’s Christ.  Christ is life for a broken world. Titus 3 – Summation of Titus

    Christ is life for a broken world. (ESV)

    Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

    Elders must care for and make sure the church stays unified and protected from the accusers and teachers of false doctrine.

    Titus 1:5 Qualifications for Elders – This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I.

    Titus 3:1-3 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.

  5. Heirs of the Hope of Eternal Life – An Unclouded Fellowship with God. Titus 3:1-8

    Sunday August 23, 2020. Heirs of the Hope of Eternal Life – An Unclouded Fellowship with God.  and Fundamentals of Salvation

    Titus 3:1-8. Godly Living and Graces of the Heirs of Grace

    Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.

    Goal of Salvation:  Eternal Life

    Need of God’s Salvation: We were once foolish and slaves

    Source of Salvation:  Goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appear (Love of God)

    Evidence of Salvation:  Diligence in performing good works

  6. Titus 2:11-15 Grace and Glory of God

    Titus 2:11-15 

    11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

    15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
