JOHN 3:16 A SERMON

JOHN 3:16 A SERMON

John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 is a very familiar verse.
Some would even consider it trite.

THE WORD IN THAT VERSE THAT LEAPS OUT AT ME IS “SO

GOD didn’t just love the world
God SO loved the world
AND THAT MEANS
GOD SO loved you

God SO loved the world that
HE sent His Son to pay the price of YOUR sins
GOD’S SON was sacrificed
for
the guilty

2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

GOD IS HOLY

We don’t even know what HOLY means
until we are saved.

WHY IS IT WRONG TO LIE?
BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY

WHY IS PORNOGRAPHY WRONG?
BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY

WHY IS GAMBLING WRONG?
BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY

WHY IS BESTIALITY WRONG?
BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY

WHY IS GOING 36 MPH IN A 35 MPH SPEED ZONE WRONG?
BECAUSE GOD IS HOLY

GOD CREATED US
and YOU ignore Him

DO YOU USE HIS NAME AS A CURSE WORD

DO YOU USE HIS HOLY NAME AS LIKE
ANY OTHER NAME

But the bible says in Exodus 20:7
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

THE SENTENCE FOR USING GOD’S NAME IN AN UNHOLY WAY
WAS DEATH BY STONING
Leviticus 24:10-23

GOD IS HOLY
JEHOVAH JESUS IS HOLY

And YET YOU HAVE ignored Him.
God LOVES YOU SO MUCH THAT HE sent His only begotten Son TO DIE FOR YOU.

Romans 5:6 – 8
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Rom 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
IT IS INSANE to reject your creators gift of His Son, Jehovah Jesus,

GOD TELLS US ABOUT JEHOVAH JESUS IN PHILIPPIANS 2:6-11

Philippians 2:6-11
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Php 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

JESUS WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN

Jesus’ Father was NOT JOSEPH
JESUS’ FATHER WAS GOD.

Luke 1:26
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
Luk 1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

jump down to verse 30

Luke 1:30
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
Luk 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Jump down to verse 34

Luke 1:34
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
Luk 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

IF JEHOVAH JESUS HAD A HUMAN FATHER
THEN
THIS BIBLE WOULD BE A LIE

But if this Bible is a lie, then
HOW CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN
THAT

Among ALL the books ever written,
[The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with more than 160 million items on approximately 838 miles of bookshelves.]

the Bible is absolutely unique. Actually, it is not just a book—it’s 66 books. And one of its most remarkable qualities is the complete unity of the overall message despite having so many different authors writing over many centuries on hundreds of controversial subjects. Natural explanations fail to account for the supernatural character and origin of Scripture.
The Bible was written over a period of roughly 2,000 years by 40 different authors from three continents, who wrote in three different languages. These facts alone make the Bible one of a kind, but there are many more amazing details that defy natural explanation.
Shepherds, kings, scholars, fishermen, prophets, a military general, a cupbearer, and a priest all penned portions of Scripture. They had different immediate purposes for writing, whether recording history, giving spiritual and moral instruction, or pronouncing judgment. They composed their works from palaces, prisons, the wilderness, and places of exile while writing history, laws, poetry, prophecy, and proverbs. In the process they laid bare their personal emotions, expressing anger, frustration, joy, and love.
Yet despite this marvelous array of topics and goals, the Bible displays a flawless internal consistency. It never contradicts itself or its common theme.” copied

YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE NOT TO READ GOD’S INSTRUCTION MANUEL ON LIFE
BOTH NOW AND AFTER DEATH

THE BIBLE TELLS US
WHY JEHOVAH JESUS HAD TO HAVE BEEN BORN WITHOUT A HUMAN FATHER.

Romans 5:12
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Because of Adam YOU WERE INFECTED with the RABIES OF SIN.

YOUR DNA IS ADAMS DNA

ADAM walked with God
BUT
WHEN IT CAME TO A CHOICE
BETWEEN
WHAT HE WANTED
AND WHAT GOD WANTED
ADAM REJECTED HIS CREATOR

ADAMS SIN
MAY NOT SEEM LIKE A BIGGY TO YOU.

BUT IT WAS WITH GOD AND BECAUSE OF
ADAMS SELFISH REBELLION
the whole human race was condemned to death

ABRAHAM IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW A CHRISTIAN SHOULD LIVE

ABRAHAM WAS GOING TO KILL HIS SON ISSAC
because God told him to.

ABRAHAM believed that GOD was holy and just

HOWEVER ADAM
WHO HAD WALKED WITH GOD
REBELLED AND TRIED TO HAVE
BOTH GOD AND SIN.

THAT ATTITUDE IS IN OUR DNA

THE HUMAN RACE IS 6,000 YEARS OLD
THE YEAR TODAY IS 2015
YET
WE ARE STILL
JUST AS MEAN AS EVER
WE ARE JUST AS VIOLENT
WE STILL MUST FIGHT FOR FREEDOM

PEACE IS NON EXISTENT

IF YOU ARE AWARE OF CURRENT EVENTS
THEN YOU MUST AGREE
THAT
WE ARE REGRESSING
NOT EVOLVING INTO SOMETHING BETTER

YOU ARE ADDICTED TO SIN
YOU HAVE A THIRST TO PLEASE YOURSELF

HERE IS A SIMPLE TEST:

Ephesians  4:17-19
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened,
being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them,
because of the blindness of their heart:
Eph 4:19 Who being past feeling
have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

WHY ARE YOU HERE TODAY?
IF YOU WOULD RATHER BE SOMEWHERE ELSE

THEN YOU ARE PAST FEELING

If YOU THINK ABORTION ISN’T BABY KILLING BECAUSE THE SUPREME COURT SAYS ITS OKAY
then you are PAST FEELING

If you think DRUGS ARE OKAY BECAUSE You WANT TO DO THEM
then you are PAST FEELING

AMERICA IS PAST FEELING
BECAUSE OUR SCHOOLS ON EVERY LEVEL HAVE EXPELLED GOD FOR BEING A TROUBLE MAKER,
WHILE GIVING EVOLUTION AND THE DEVIL AN A PLUS.

YOU WANT TO FIX THE SCHOOLS
SIMPLE
TEACH THAT GOD IS HOLY
THE DEVIL IS EVIL
FLUNK OUT THE DEVIL
AND GIVE GOD THE GLORY HE DESERVES

HOMOSEXUALITY AND DRUGS ARE BOTH SOCIETY APPROVED
AND P. C. SANCTIFIED LIFE STYLES.

WE ARE SATURATED WITH
MURDER – DRUG ADDICTION – VIOLENCE – SEX PERVERSIONS OF EVERY TYPE
Ephesians 4:19 Who being PAST FEELING

WE ARE NUMB TO PERVERSE BEHAVIOR

WE ARE PAST FEELING
Because reprobate actors writers and pundits have made sin look innocent, and to be against sin makes you a mean ignorant Neanderthal who knows no better then to believe
JOHN 3:16
Without the holy ghost YOU ARE DEAD INSIDE

PROOF JOHN 3:16 HAS NO EFFECT ON YOU

John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

YOU IGNORE IT

DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE?
JOHN 3:16
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life

YOU WILL DIE
then what?

That should be THE QUESTION

WHAT CAN BE MORE IMPORTANT THEN WHERE YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY?

THAT IS WHERE EVOLUTION COMES IN

EVOLUTION TEACHES THAT
WE JUST HAPPENED TO EVOLVE
LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING
EVOLVE FROM WHAT?

THINK FOR YOURSELF
HOW COULD YOU JUST EVOLVE
HOW COULD THE UNIVERSE JUST EVOLVE
HOW COULD PLANTS – ANIMALS – BUGS – BIRDS – FISH
JUST EVOLVE

AND EVOLVE SO PERFECTLY

SO IS A POWERFUL WORD

John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

EVOLUTION IS A RELIGION
THAT HAS REJECTED JOHN 3:16

PEOPLE BELIEVE EVOLUTION BECAUSE WE ARE HERE
THE UNIVERSE IS HERE

THEREFORE IF
THERE IS NO GOD
THEN EVOLUTION MUST BE TRUE

THEY – PERHAPS YOU – are numb to God’s love.
John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
does GOD’S LOVE MEANS NOTHING to you

BECAUSE
man has rejected John 3:16
he must put his FAITH IN EVOLUTION

WHERE IS YOUR FAITH???
IS IT IN EVOLUTION
IS IT IN THIS WORLDS PHILOSOPHY
HOW INFLUENCED ARE YOU BY THE ENTERTAINMENT AND NEWS MEDIA REPROBATE ACTORS AND WRITERS?

The bible tells us we ought to
LOVE THE LORD JESUS WITH ALL OUR MIGHT
DO YOU?

Matthew 22:35-38
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
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.

PAUL TELLS CHRISTIANS
2nd 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;

Colossians 2:8
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

LARRY, I DON’T LIKE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
THAT’S
BECAUSE YOU WANT TO DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
THAT’S BECAUSE YOU HAVE REJECTED GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU
John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO BELIEVE A LIE

YOUR CREATOR TELLS YOU HE LOVES YOU

IF SO
Then you are PAST FEELING
LISTEN – LISTEN REAL GOOD
IT’S OKAY
GOD STILL LOVES YOU
John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

SO GO AHEAD
KEEP ON TAKING ADVANTAGE
OF GOD’S LOVE.

Go ahead
and KEEP ON rejecting God’s Son

Go ahead
and make a mockery out of what Jesus suffered on the cross
And what Jesus accomplished on the cross FOR YOU

John 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

BUT LET ME WARN YOU
the last verse in that wonderful third chapter of the gospel of John readsJohn 3:36
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but
the wrath of God abideth on him.

EVOLUTION IS A LIE

WHO WILL YOU BELIEVE
ANTICHRIST EVOLUTIONISTS
OR
THE BIBLE?

CLOSE WITH THIS POEM OF WARNING

Harden Not Your Heart
There is a time, I know not when,
A place, I know not where,
Which marks the destiny of men
To heaven or despair.
There is a line by us not seen
Which crosses every path,
The hidden boundary between
God’s patience and His wrath.
To cross that limit is to die,
To die, as if by stealth.
It may not pale the beaming eye,
Nor quench the glowing health.
The conscience may be still at ease,
The spirits light and gay;
That which is pleasing still may please,
And care be thrust away.
But on that forehead God hath set
Indelibly a mark,
By man unseen, for man as yet
Is blind and in the dark.
And still the doomed man’s path below
May bloom like Eden bloomed.
He did not, does not, will not know,
Nor feel that he is doomed.
He feels, he sees that all is well,
His every fear is calmed.
He lives, he dies, he wakes in hell,
Not only doomed, but damned.
Oh, where is that mysterious bourn,
By which each path is crossed,
Beyond which God himself hath sworn
That he who goes is lost?
How long may men go on in sin?
How long will God forbear?
Where does hope end, and where begin
The confines of despair?
One answer from those skies is sent,
“Ye who from God depart,
While it is called today, repent,
And harden not your heart.”
–Author unknown

Joh 3:16
For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

WILL YOU TRUST IN GOD’S PERFECT LOVE
WILL YOU REPENT
WILL YOU CHOOSE EVERLASTING LIFE
WILL YOU CHOOSE TO BELIEVE GOD
