Being Heart Healthy

Temple Baptist Church - 7-22-2018
Proverbs 4:20-23


A.  The heart, mind, soul, and body are intricately tied together.  The mind and heart are knit together in thinking, expression, and action.

1.  The imaginative heart - Genesis 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  (How we imagine is determined upon the spiritual condition of our hearts.)

2.  The expressive heart - Genesis 17:17  Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?  (Abraham carried on a silent conversation in his heart.  We carry on conversation within instead of without.  “Self, I says!”)

3.  The exposing heart - Proverbs 23:7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.  (What we think in our hearts will ultimately become known through our outward actions.)

B.  Therefore, in verse 20, we are to “attend” to God’s Word and “incline” unto God’s sayings.  These words are intransitive verbs, a verb that transfers its action to an object within the sentence, and are explained in verse 21.

1.  Attend – transitive verb – to go to or to be present.  Verse 21 says that they are not to “depart from thine eyes.”  To keep out hearts with all diligence, we must be present with God’s Word: to read, study, and present to hear.  As an intransitive verb, it means to apply oneself to something.

2.  Incline – transitive verb - to stoop or to bow; to be influenced.  Verse 21 says to “keep them in the midst of thine heart.”  We are to not only read, study, and hear God’s Word—we are to allow it to influence our thoughts and, therefore, our actions.

C.  Verse 23 uses three words: “keep … diligence … issues.”

1.  Keep – to guard or to protect.  The object of our guarding is the heart.

2.  Diligence – the legal care of a person party to a contract.  The action of our guarding is obligation.

3.  Issues – to spring or to flow out; to go forth.  The result of our guarding is a heart of holiness.

D.  How to be heart healthy:

1.  Regular Spiritual Checkups Through Self-Examination.

Jeremiah 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

a.  Self-Examination:

1)   Self Examination of Salvation - 2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?  (Am I in Christ Jesus.  So many people do not check up on their salvation because of fear of what they will find.)

2)  Self Examination of Spiritual Walk - 1 Corinthians 11:28  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.  (In our day, we can check our own blood pressure and pulse rate with a cheap blood pressure machine.  We can also check our own spiritual wellbeing as well.)

b.  Regular Spiritual Checkups By God.  God’s Examinations Are Comprehensive: 

1)  The Secrets Of The Heart - Psalms 44:21  Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

2)  The Control Of The Heart - Psalms 26:2  Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

3)  The Leading Of The Heart - Psalms 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:24  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

4)  The Imaginations Of The Heart - Proverbs 23:7a  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

2 Corinthians 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Genesis 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

2.  Dailey Saturation Of Scripture.  Read Your Bible Daily. 

a.  I sent out a thing about treating your Bible like you treat your cell phone.  I added a couple of things to that.

(1)  Carry it everywhere that you go.

(2)  If you forget it, go back and get it.

(3) Check it for messages several times a day.

(4)  Use it in case of emergencies.

(5)  Share things in it regularly.

(6)  Spend an hour or more each day reading it.

(7)  When you wear it out, get another immediately BUT DON’T UPDATE IT!!!  The old one was fine!

1 Timothy 4:7-9  But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.  (8)  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.  (9)  This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

Psalms 119:34  Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Psalms 119:69   The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

Psalms 119:80   Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.

Psalms 119:145  I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.

a.  God’s Word Will Rejoice Your Heart - Psalms 19:8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

b.  God’s Word Will Purify Your Heart - Psalms 119:11   Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

c.  God’s Word Will Stabilize Your Heart - Psalms 119:10   With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

3.  Learn To Eat Healthy Through Spiritual Meditation.

Job 23:12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

Psalms 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalms 4:4  Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

a.  Meditate Upon The Law Of God - Psalms 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Psalms 119:15  I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

b.  Meditate Upon The Son Of God - Psalms 63:6  When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the nightwatches.

c.  Meditate Upon The Work Of God - Psalms 77:12  I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

4.  Worship Regularly: You Keep Your Heart Through Adoration.

a.  Praise - Psalms 86:12  I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

b.  Testimony - Psalms 9:1  I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

c.  Singing - Psalms 138:1  I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

d.  Faithfulness - Psalms 111:1  Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

e.  Longing - Psalms 84:2  My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

f.  Rejoicing - Psalms 28:7  The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Conclusion:  DILIGENCE, n. [L., to love earnestly; to choose.]  Steady application in business of any kind; constant effort to accomplish what is undertaken; exertion of body or mind without unnecessary delay or sloth; due attention; industry; assiduity, care; heed; heedfulness.

The Purpose of The Church

Temple Baptist Church - 7-15-2018
Acts 2:41-47


A.  Most local churches and denominations have become confused as to their purpose for existence. 

1.  A preacher from the 1800’s was quoted: “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.”

2.  To show the ignorance of church going people, they commonly say that it does not matter where you go to church if you go somewhere.

B.  The modern-day churches are doing this very thing.

a.  They have become social clubs.  Where the elite of society join to be seen and promote their careers.  Notice how few doctors, teachers, lawyers, business men, and politicians join true New Testament churches.

b.  They have become entertainment centers.  Their programs and music reflect the mood and priorities of the world.

c.  They have become safe havens for the sinful.  Sinners, both lost and saved, are not being confronted with their sin and, therefore, continue in them.

d.  They have become banks where the tithes and offerings of the saints now rest in bank (or personal) accounts.  God never intended for money to remain in the bank while a world is dying without Christ and missionaries are struggling to get to the field.

e.  The have become more worldly and less godly.  There was a time when the church was a place for the rich to show off their elegance in clothing fashions but now it is the reverse.  Today, the church has become a place where people wear their casual clothing along with sandals and flip-flops.

C.  I find no Martyr’s Roll containing the names of church entertainers.  Men of God were put to death for not bowing or bending to the whims of society.  They were not politically correct!  They died for the Word of God!

2 Timothy 3:10-13  But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,  (11)  Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.  (12)  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.  (13)  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

D.  What is the purpose of the local church?  This morning, we read the First Mention of the local church in operation.  The Lord had previously mentioned church discipline the Book of Matthew but it is in Acts, chapter 2, that we find the assembly and its work.

1.  Evangelization – Acts 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.  (Peter had preached Christ publicly in this chapter and thousands turned to Christ.)

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both inJerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.  (In our Lord’s command of evangelization, He mentioned both home and foreign missions.)

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  (Go ye, teach, baptize.  We must go, they must hear and believe, then they are baptized.)

2.  Education – Acts 2:42  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine.

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  (The importance of sound doctrine is found in “all things.”)

1 Timothy 3:15  But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 

3.  Exhortation – Acts 2:42, 46  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers … and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.  

Hebrews 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  (The exhortation of God’s people.)

2 Timothy 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  (The exhortation of God’s Word.)

Hebrews 13:22  And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.

4.  Unification – Acts 2:46  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.

Ephesians 4:13-14  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  (14)  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;(The Scriptural education that only the Bible brings.)

5.  Supplication - Acts 2:42  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.  

Isaiah 56:7  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. 

Matthew 21:13  And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Acts 1:14  These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

6.  Adoration – Acts 2:47  Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.  (Giving praise to He, who alone is worthy: our Lord Jesus Christ.)

Psalms 103:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

The Longsuffering of God

Temple Baptist Church - 7-11-2018
2 Peter 3:9-15


A.  I as watch the sinfulness and rejection of God in this present evil world, I stand amazed at the longsuffering of God.  In this third chapter of 2 Peter, God speaks of the end of all things as we know them.  God is just; God is holy; but, God is good; God is love; and God is longsuffering.

B.  There are three words in the Bible that show this: mercy, forbearance, and longsuffering.

C.  To understand God’s longsuffering in these last days, it is important to go back to the First Mention of God’s mercy, forbearance, and longsuffering with mankind’s sinfulness.

1 Peter 3:20  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

D.  The Flood came 1,656 years after the creation of Adam.  I verified this number personally by adding the numbers in Genesis, chapter 5. 

1.  For 969 years before the Flood, God prophesied its coming.  The birth and life of Methuselah was the prophecy of the judgement of God.  Dr. Henry Morris said it may mean, “When he diesjudgment.” Others say: “When he is dead, it shall be sent.  I also calculated the date of Methuselah’s birth and death.  Methuselah died the year of the Flood.  Almost 1,000 years of longsuffering.

2.  Noah, a preacher of righteousness, preached for 120 years (Genesis 6:3) before the Flood and until the actual event.  After 120 years of preaching and building, the Ark was finished, and God commanded Noah to load the Ark, bring his family, and come into the Ark in Genesis 7:1.  12o years more of longsuffering.

3.  In Genesis 7:3, it is recorded that God kept the Ark’s door open for an additional 7 days in the which any person on earth could have repented and entered.  7 more days of additional longsuffering.

E.  Notice the rapidly diminishing number of years and days (969 years, 120 years, 7 days) as the judgement of God approached.  Peter said, “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,” in 2 Peter 3:12.

F.  Noah’s day is a story of man’s sinfulness, God’s messenger, God’s universal invitation, and God’s additional longsuffering before He shut the door of the Ark.  Now, we see the meaning of our verses for tonight.

1.  The Mercy of God.  Mercy is, to be simply put, not getting what one deserves.  God does not want mankind to get what they deserve!  We all deserve hell, but God has prepared a place called heaven.

Exodus 34:5-6  And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.  (6)  And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Lamentations 3:22-23  It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  (23)  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.  (The mercy of God is the foundation for the forbearance of God.)

2.  The Forbearance of God.  Fore-bear.  To make up one’s mind in advance to put up with something.  Forbearance is the most basic form of patience and is usually thought of as an action—a relatively short-term restraint or act of tolerance. It is directed toward another person, group of people, or set of immediate circumstances, resulting from some wrong (or perceived wrong) having been committed against us.  Forbearance, in the human sense, may be shown with a truly loving heart or it can also be shown with much grumbling and little in the way of a loving motivation.  Throughout each generation of mankind, God has—because of His great love—put up with man’s rebellion and sinfulness.

Romans 2:4  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

Romans 3:25  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  (God has mercy upon us and, in forbearance, God puts up with us!  The mercy and forbearance of God are the foundations for the longsuffering of God.)

3.  The Longsuffering of God.  Longsuffering is like unto mercy and forbearance in its meaning and application. The chief difference is that longsuffering, as suggested by the word itself, is a type of forbearance which is not just exercised in the immediate moment of an experience. Rather, it is a character quality developed and exercised over the long-term course of many similar experiences.

1.  God is longsuffering in His Forgiveness.  In verse 9, we see that He is not willing that “any” should perish.  No predestination to hell.

Ezekiel 33:11  Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

2.  God is longsuffering in His Salvation.  In verse 9, we see that He wants “all” to be saved.  No election of a few to salvation.  An open invitation.

1 Timothy 2:1-3  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  (2)  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  (3)  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Conclusion:   Thus, we see God’s longsuffering in Noah’s day ended with the judgement of this evil world.  Today, we see God’s longsuffering with the wicked but—one day—it will end with the judgement of this present evil world.  He loves sinners and has provided the Lamb of God to take away their sin.  To reject God’s offer of forgiveness and salvation is to suffer eternal punishment in hell.

Predestination - Part 1

Temple Baptist Church - 7-8-2018
Romans 8:29-30


A.  As we look at predestination tonight, we need to remember that the Bible plainly asserts that God is no respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34; Romans 2:6-11; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25; James 2:1)  Any doctrine that places God in a position of such is blatantly false!

B.  Some confuse and equate Divine foreknowledge and foreordination.  God can know a matter before hand without predetermining the matter to the point that the people (in this case) are excluded, as far as their will and participation are concerned. Some religionists, nonetheless, maintain such a radical view of predestination that in stressing the sovereignty of God, they have eliminated the will and role of man.

C.  God “understandeth our thoughts afar off” and, therefore, knows what choices that we will make.  God knew that Satan would tempt Eve and that Adam would sin.  He did not force or program them to sin.  They committed sin by choice.  God is a God of love and ultimate equity!

D.  Biblical predestination is proof of God's omniscience.  Furthermore, biblical prophecy is predicated on God's foreknowledge and predestination.  The fact that God knew that only a few would accept his Son is also indicative of God's love in sending his Son. "The few" who will be saved are not a group whom God arbitrarily and totally, without any participation on their part, chose to be save, but those who "enter in at the strait gate," which is faith in Jesus Christ!

E.  First, I hope everyone has the preceding straight.  Man has responsibility to come to Jesus Christ for salvation.  Period!

F.  Secondly, predestination has to do with God’s purpose in salvation, not selection in salvation.  Predestination has to do with foreknowledge!  As we look at these verses, we see them from God’s side which was precipitated in eternity past, declaring His purpose and man’s side which began in verse 7.  No man is predestined to either heaven or hell.  Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels, not man!  (Unless some ignorant theologian thinks that all the unsaved are the “angel-humans” of their “Sons of God” theory in Genesis 6!)

G.  Let’s look at these verses in their context and see what God said concerning predestination. 

1.  The “For” at the beginning of verse 29 ties it to the preceding verses (Context Principle of Bible Interpretation) and, therefore to us as God’s children.  There is no mention of the unsaved in these verses!  God is declaring the position of those in Christ.  The antecedent of “whom” is the plural pronouns found in these verses.  There is not one singular pronoun in the context.  Paul, through the Holy Ghost, is speaking of the body corporate or the Body of Christ.

2.  The word “foreknow” is the key to the verses for tonight.  God not only knew about us, He knew us!  God knows all things.  He sees the end from the beginning.  Nothing ever surprises God or even occurs to God.  He is omniscient.  He knew that we would come to trust in Him from the foundation of the world.

Ephesians 1:3-7  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:  (4)  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  (5)  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  (6)  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.  (7)  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;  (Notice the plural pronouns.  Predestination and election are always found surrounded with plural pronouns.  Never, when referring to man, do you find a singular pronoun in the context.  God sees a “finished product” when He sees us!)

Ephesians 2:5-6  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)  (6)  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:  (“Ye” is plural because it becomes “we” and “us” and together.)

Ephesians 2:8-10  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  (9)  Not of works, lest any man should boast.  (10)  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.  (“Ye” is plural because it becomes “yourselves” and “we.”  It is the Body of Christ that conforms to the image of Christ.)

3.  “Predestinate” is to pre-determine.  Predestination is our conformity to Christ, not “election” by Christ.  What and who did God pre-determine.  The collective Body of Christ.  God sees us eternally home and like unto Him.  He also sees a Bride perfected.

Romans 8:29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Ephesians 5:25-27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;  (26)  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,  (27)  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

4.  “Called.”  The “called” in this verse are those whom God foreknew that would answer His call.  We that are saved are the “called.”

Matthew 22:11-14  And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:  (12)  And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.  (13)  Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  (14)  For many are called, but few are chosen.  (The “wedding garment” is the imputed righteousness of Christ.  God’s call is a universal invitation but the chosen are those who answer that call.)

2 Thessalonians 2:13  But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: (How are we “chosen?”  Through faith!  We believed the truth.  Sanctification and belief are simultaneous acts.)

Matthew 23:37  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!  (This verse Biblically answers the question: “Does man have a choice to accept or to reject?”

John 5:40  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.  (The Pharisees could have been saved just as Paul was on the Damascus Road.)

5.  “Them He justified.”  To be declared or to render innocent.

Galatians 3:6-8  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.  (7)  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.  (8)  And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.  (We are justified through our act of faith, not election or predestination.)

6.  “Glorified.”  As God knew us who are and are being saved before the beginning, He also sees us glorified with Him in eternity! 

Jude 24-25  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,  (25)  To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Conclusion:  I think that the conclusion becomes obvious.

1.  God’s Foreknowledge Sees Our Salvation Blood Based.

2.  God’s Foreknowledge Sees Us Conformed To The Image Of His Son.

3.  God’s Foreknowledge Sees Us Holy And Without Blame Before Him In Love.

4.  God’s Foreknowledge Sees Us Finally Home!
