Watch our May 15, 2022 Worship service, sermon by Dr. Sohrab Ramtin from Luke 24:51-53

Watch our May 15, 2022 Worship service, sermon by Dr. Sohrab Ramtin from Luke 24:51-53. It includes prayers, singing, announcements, special music, and a sermon by Sohrab Ramtin on the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ from Luke 24:51-53.

For our musical special, José H. played “Because He Lives“ on the harmonica. I always enjoy how He is able to play the tune and accompaniment of a piece. I don’t know how he does it!

Dr. Sohrab Ramtin spoke on the Ascension of the lord Jesus from Luke 24:51-53. Sohrab showed how the beginning and end of the book of Luke fit together with its teachings about the Lord and how they balanced each other. He noted that the ascension is only in Luke. Also, it is in both of the books written by Luke, his Gospel and the Book of Acts. It is the end of his Gospel and the beginning of Acts.

Sohrab Ramtin broke the Ascension into three parts, event, response, and significance. A good points Sohrab made was that the preaching of the Gospel began in Jerusalem. He noted was where the Lord Jesus had taught and many of the events have taken place. This was a way of showing that it was true. It is very different from saying something happened long ago and far away. The Gospel was first proclaimed where it could be best tested.

Sohrab taught that all will bow to the Lord, either now or as a defeated enemy. He also noted that true worship results in obedience to the Lord. He concluded his sermon with 10 points about the Ascension and a call to commitment.

Watch our May 22, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor (Matthew 23:13)

Watch our May 22, 2022 adult Sunday school class taught by Tom Cantor (Matthew 23:13).

 

This Sunday, Tom Cantor taughtfrom Matthew 23:13. Tom started by reading Matthew 23:13–33 to get the context. He then looked back at the previous background. He noted that the Lord cleanse the temple of thieves of property, and now he was cleansing it of the thieves of souls.

Tom Cantor also made the important point that the Lord Jesus Christ was having compassion on them for scribes and Pharisees even in his criticism of them. The Lord Jesus his criticism was like the warning of a trumpet (Amos 3:6). Tom noted that their problem was that they were playing religion, being hypocrites. He then went on to contrast the way of works versus the way of Christ – the gospel. He pointed out that the scribes and Pharisees were in a position to be a great blessing (Matthew 23:2–3). This is something they should’ve taken advantage of.

Tom Cantor connected this passage with Jewish evangelism. Tom gave an example from his personal life when interacting with a rabbi. He said there are now two ways that the kingdom of God is “shut up“ to the Jewish community. The first is the pressure of the wall along with the “oral law.” The second is the nourishing of a prejudice against Christ. He said he calls his Israel Restoration Ministries “prejudice counselors.”

Tom also emphasize that some of the Jewish leaders did believe on Jesus (John 7:47–48). He concluded with five reasons people resist Jesus whether Jews or gentiles.

Watch our May 15, 2022 Worship service, sermon by Tom Cantor (Joel 1)

Watch our May 15, 2022 Worship service including sermon by Tom Cantor (Joel 1). It includes prayers, singing, announcements, special music, and a sermon by Tom Cantor from Joel 1.

For this worship service, we sang four hymns. We sang “This Is the Day,” “Give to Our God Immortal Praise,” “He Leadeth Me,” and“Watch for Me, for I Am Coming.” Our special music was a family singing “Blessed Is the Man.” The congregation joined in for the second time.

Tom Cantor taught from Joel chapter 1. Tom noted that Joel‘s name means “Jehovah is God.” He also discussed some Jewish evangelism that he promotes and that we are praying for. Also, he drew the analogy that the Bible is like a chart to warn us from danger. He gave the example of when he goes fishing in Loretto, Mexico that he uses charts to avoid danger.

Tom also spoke of the significance of the locusts. He also applied this passage to the importance of child evangelism. He recommended the book “The Lamb” by John R. Cross. You can buy this book on Amazon or at Tom Cantor’s Creation and Earth History Museum Bookstore

Watch our May 15, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor (Matthew 23:1-12).

Tom Cantor taughtfrom Matthew 23:1-12 for the Sunday school class. First, He gave the background. To spoke of all the people who had challenge Jesus and then how Jesus had challenged them.

Next, Jesus spoke to the multitude about the people who had challenged him. Tom noted that a problem with the scribes and Pharisees is they were not living what they taught.

Tom Cantor, a Jewish believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, connected this passage with his experiences in evangelism including Jewish evangelism. He talked about his experiences with the Jewish community and some of their deep interest in tefillin. He also connected the teachings here to the sayings of a Chinese emperor from thousands of years ago. This helped make a point in Matthew 23:11.

One of the closing points that Tom made was that the command in Matthew 23:11 “but he that is the greatest i’m on you shall be your servant“ is one that Jesus lead by example. He referenced the epistle to the Philippians 2:5-11. This passage showed that the Jesus Christ had the exalted position of being “equal with God” that he took on “the form of a servant.“ This is what the Lord calls us to do in Matthew 23:11.

Watch our May 8, 2022 Worship service, sermon by Sam Burton (John 10:1-10)

Watch our May 8, 2022 Worship service. It includes singing, announcements, special music, a missionary report, and a sermon by retired missionary Dr. Sam Burton from John 10:1-10.

We sang the hymns “We’re Marching to Zion,” “Near to the Heart of God,” The Light of the World is Jesus,” and “Have You any Room for Jesus?”

We had a missionary report from Brazil. Dan told about the training of pastors, how churches were doing, and the teaching of children.

Next, retired missionary Sam Burton gave a sermon from The gospel of John (John 10:1-10), “The Door of Salvation.” Sam showed that Jesus is the great I Am (Exodus 3:14). He noted that this verse was in the present tense. He also taught from Isaiah 53:6, and compared Jesus the door to the door of the ark of safety and salvation.

Sam pointed out that there are two doors. Jesus is the door of salvation. Also, there is the door of our hearts that we are to open (Revelation 3:20). He also pointed out that Jesus coming into our hearts is not just our salvation but a daily pattern.

Watch our May 8, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor (Matthew 22: 41-46)

Watch our May 8, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor from the Gospel of Matthew 22: 41-46.

Tom Cantor started with background to Matthew 22:41–46. Tom included pointing out that Christ was from Galilee not Jerusalem. Galilee was insignificant (John 1:46). He said it was like being from San Diego city College instead of Harvard or being from Tecate (Which Tom loves) instead of Mexico City.

Tom then noted the background attitude of the Lord Jesus Christ to this passage. He pointed out how Jesus had wept over Jerusalem, and how God desires people to be saved. He gave the analogy of a lifeguard who sees all as a group but also as individuals.

Tom then got to Matthew 22:41-46. The others had asked their questions of him, and now he was going to ask his. He asked them who they thought Christ was, Christ meeting Messiah. He noted how important of a question this is not only for them but for all of us.

Tom then went on to describe the two kinds of knowing, knowing objectively and subjectively. We need to know objectively who Christ is, but also subjectively except him. He used the contrast between the Spanish saber and concocer.

Tom Cantor also noted how the Lord Jesus Christ used Psalm 110 and identified David speaking “in Spirit.” I am use this to point out the importance of inspiration. He then concluded how the Lord had silenced his accusers.
