These are outlines of sermons that I’ve preached. They are in order by date preached but the book only contains the outlines that I have record of. Some of the outlines contain notes and commentary but others are only Scripture text. you will be able to tell the depth increasing as I grew from being a beginner to a novice to intermediate and so forth. This is a continuing work and I will add to it as I Preach more messages. 1.1 7 8 Compilation of Sermons Chapter 2 Unto the pure all things are pure 2.1 Background I preached Unto the Pure All Things are Pure at Built on the Rock Ministries under Troy Emanuel Fox Sr. on February 13, 2005. 2.2 Message Outline • Titus 1 15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are deﬁled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is deﬁled. 16They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. • Titus 2 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. • Titus 3 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justiﬁed by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. • Heb 2 1Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. 2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience re- ceived a just recompense of reward; 3How shall we escape, if we neglect so 9 10 Compilation of Sermons great salvation; which at the ﬁrst began to be spoken by the Lord, and was conﬁrmed unto us by them that heard him; 4God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? • Heb 3 12Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our conﬁdence stedfast unto the end; 15While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all (did provoke) that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. • Heb 4 1Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not proﬁt them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3For we which have believed do enter into rest, Chapter 3 How Christians Become Born Again 3.1 Background How Christians Become Born Again was most likely preached on May 15, 2005 at The Evangelistic center, which is an inner city outreach and food pantry in Grand Rapids, MI. This outline only contains minimal notes. I’m not sure where I was going with some of the points. 3.2 Message Outline & Minimal Notes Proverbs 4:27 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Just as it takes a man and a woman to produce a natural child also it takes Jesus and his bride for someone to be born again in the spirit. Jhn 3:3 Except a man be born again... John 3:3 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 1Pe 1:18-25 not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible 1 Peter 1:18-25 18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with cor- ruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing ye have puriﬁed your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all ﬂesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the ﬂower of grass. The grass withereth, 11 12 Compilation of Sermons and the ﬂower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. John 8:14 14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. for I know whence I came, and whither I go... • The ﬂesh of christ was obedient unto death. • We take communion • we should be as the ﬂesh of christ as a Living sacraﬁce • The life is in the blood • It took the ﬂesh of christ to carry that blood to the right place, even to the cross, and it takes the ﬂesh of christ to bring that blood into his church so that people can be born again. Luke 5:16 16 And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. Chapter 4 Free Gift 4.1 Background This sermon was designed to show the true price of our free gift. 4.2 Scripture Outline The great commandment. Mat 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Mat 22:38 This is the ﬁrst and great commandment. Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. The royal law. Jam 2:8 If ye fulﬁl the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: Mercy vs Judgment Jam 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. Condemnation vs Justiﬁcation Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the oﬀence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justiﬁcation of life. Rom 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Justiﬁed freely by his grace Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no diﬀerence: Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Rom 3:24 Being justiﬁed freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Rom 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; According to his mercy 13 14 Compilation of Sermons Tts 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. Tts 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Tts 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Tts 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; Tts 3:7 That being justiﬁed by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Go and sin no more. Chapter 5 Doing the Contemporary Will of God 5.1 Background This message was preached at Built on the Rock Ministries on 08-21-2005 under Pastor Troy E. Fox. This message was came about after reading an online Puritan diary. This is the ﬁrst message that I cited text other than scripture. 5.2 Outline & Quotes 5.2.1 John Woolman John Woolman was a Quaker antislavery advocate from the mid 1700s. The re- sult of his agitation against slavery, 20 years after his death, was a doctrine that emancipation of slaves was a religious duty among the Quaker Society. This was 100 years prior to the emancipation proclamation of Abraham Lincoln. He was a contemporary of Gods Will for his time. How do I become a contemporary of Gods Will? Or How do I become a doer of Gods will for or time? Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Psa 63:1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my ﬂesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; That water is Living water. Jhn 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 5.2.2 God spreads His will thru his people. In the late 1930s Hitler was destroying one European country after another and sending Jews and people from other various nationalities and social groups to con- centration camps. Corrie ten Boom was not married and lived with her family above 15 16 Compilation of Sermons their familys watch shop. When the Nazis invaded Holland the ten Boom family operated an underground enterprise that fed, clothed, and housed Jews. When the Nazis found out, Corrie and Betsie her sister were taken to prison and then to a concentration camp. They had smuggled a Bible and the sisters spread the hope of the Gospel to their fellow inmates. Here is an excerpt from the book The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom How could we have guessed as we sat there that in place of memories we were about to be given adventure such as we had never dreamed of? Adventure and anguish, horror and heaven were just around the corner, and we did not know. If I had known, would I have gone ahead? Could I have done the things I did? Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Who do we have to prove it to? It has to be proved to you. John Woolmans diary from the mid 1700s after the conviction of the Holy Spirit, concerning youthful lusts and associations with people of questionable character. I was now led to look seriously at the means by which I was drawn from the pure truth, and learned that if I would live such a life as the faithful servants of God lived, I must not go into company as heretofore in my own will, but all the cravings of sense must be governed by a Divine principle. Isa 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 5.2.3 God proves us and we prove the will of God. Does Gods Will work for you? Do you work for the Will of God? Psa 26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. Psa 26:3 For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth. Chapter 6 God’s Purpose for Your Life 6.1 Background This message was preached on 08-25-2005. At this point I am learning how to write a decent message outline. 6.2 Outline Title: God’s Purpose for Your Life Big idea: Pursue God until He declares to you the purpose for your life. Purpose: The object toward which one strives or for which something exists; an aim or a goal: ”And ever those, who would enjoyment gain Must ﬁnd it in the purpose they pursue” Sarah Josepha Hale. I. Seek God to acquire the purpose for your life. 1. My purpose for being in school is to acquire the necessary education to fulﬁll my lifes work according to the calling of Jesus Christ. II. One of the main purposes of King Solomons life was to build a house unto the Lord. 1. 1Ki 5:5 And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name. III. With out a purpose, life will be aimless and reactive. 1. Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. 2. Act 11:22,23 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord. Conclusion: Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 17 18 Compilation of Sermons Chapter 7 The goal is love 7.1 Background This message was preached on October 23, 2005. The structure of the messages is taking on a more formal look. 7.2 Outline The goal is love. Christians be careful where you wander. Scripture reading 1 Timothy 1:3-5 1. 3As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer 4nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God’s workwhich is by faith. What is Paul urging Timothy to do? Paul is urging timothy to stay and command certain men not to teach false doctrines or devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies because they are promoting controversies rather than Gods work. What should be promoted? Gods work should be promoted thru the use of faith. 2. 5The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. What is the goal of the commandment? The goal is love that comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 3. 6Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. What have some wandered away from? Some wandered away from love and to meaningless talk. 4. 7They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so conﬁdently aﬃrm. What do the teachers of controversies want? They want to teach the law of God. 19 20 Compilation of Sermons What prevents them from teaching Gods law? They dont know Gods law or the impact of the error they teach. Chapter 8 The goal is love 8.1 Background 1Cr 10.doc 1Cr 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Reference: Numbers 11:4 God was providing manna from heaven but the people wanted meat. God provided meat but killed the people who lusted after it. Verse 34. Lust is the desire, craving or longing for what is forbidden. Lust is deceitful, enticing and hurtful. 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Reference: Exodus 32:6 Moses was up in the mountain receiving the ten commandments from the very hand of God, but by the time he came down, Aaron had made an idol, the golden calf and the children of Israel were worshiping it through pagan sexual acts. 8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Reference: Numbers 25:1 The Children of Israel began to sleep around with the daughters of a pagan nation, and go to pagan temples to worship false gods. 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Reference: Numbers 21:5 The people of Israel spoke against Moses and against the LORD and snakes entered into the camp and many people were bitten and died. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Reference: Exodus 14:27 The children of Israel were cut oﬀ and told they would not enter into the promised land because they murmured against the Lord. 11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written 21 22 Compilation of Sermons for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Admonition: cautionary advice or warning. Ends of the world: 1 John 2:18 starts out by saying Little children, it is the last time: 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. Pro 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: You are not the only person struggling with sin in your life. And there is no sin that is a new sin, every sin has been done before. 13 but God is faithful, who will not suﬀer you to be tempted above that ye are able; 13 but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, ﬂee from idolatry.
