Luke 23 – The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 3)
Luke 23 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 3) picks up where we left off last week in trial 5 where Herod sends Jesus back to Pilate. Herod and Pilate were not able to find Jesus guilty of any crime at all. Pilate is now back in the hot seat and must deal with this angry group of religious leaders that want to crucify Jesus. Luke 23 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 3) shows the craftiness of Pilate in his attempts to not kill Jesus, but also not make him innocent to appease the Jewish religious leaders. The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus : Trail 1. Before Annas Trail 2. Before Caiaphas / Sanhedrin at night Trial 3. Before Caiaphas / Sanhedrin in morning Trial 4. Before Pilate Trial 5.

The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus shows how much Jesus cares for us:
Jesus WILLINGLY ENDURED RADICAL INJUSTICE, PAIN & SUFFERING to purchase our salvation Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. Luke 23:11, (NKJV) The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus is a Call to Stand Up for what is Right: IF WE FAIL TO STAND FOR TRUTH – WE WILL BE RUN OVER BY LIES The Prophet Isaiah wrote: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! “ ISAIAH 5:20, (NKJV) The Book of Luke states: “Pilate, therefore, wishing to release Jesus, again called out to them.” Luke 23:20 (NKJV)   The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus Demonstrates the Sovereignty of Jesus: They killed Jesus because He is God The Apostle John wrote: Then Pilate said to Him, "Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?" Jesus answered, "You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin." John 19:10-11, (NKJV) The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus Reveal the Irony in The Trials: 1. Pilate the wicked judges Jesus the just and righteous one on the Bema Seat. 2. Israel’s religious leaders have been waiting for the Messiah but can’t see that He is right in front of them and they want to crucify Him. 3. Barabbas the wicked criminal, robber and murderer is released. Jesus is beaten and bloodied, committing no crime is sentenced to a criminal’s death, crux fiction on a cross.
God’s message to us: BARABBAS = Son of the father

    Matthew 26:69-27:14 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2)
    Matthew 26:69-27:14 – The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2)
    Matthew 26:69-27:14 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2) reveals that Jesus was denied the equitable, due process of a fair trial. He was arrested, judged, sentenced, then put to death – all without a valid legal procedure or a justifiable reason for His execution.  Jesus was innocent. He committed no crime that would even warrant an arrest – much less a ruling of execution by a high court.  Matthew 26:69-27:14 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2) expose the mockery of justice in the highest degree. 
     
     
    The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2) demonstrates the progression of Peter’s sin:
    In these illegal trials, we also see Peter's progression of sin. What began with pride and prayerlessness ultimately turned into the shocking, utter denial of Jesus.
    The Apostle Paul wrote:  "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not."
    (Romans 7:18, KJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/rom/7/18/s_1053018
     
    The Prophet Isaiah wrote: "But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our RIGHTEOUSNESSES are like filthy rags."
    (Isaiah 64:6, NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/isa/64/6/s_743006
    From the Book of Mark it is written:  “ 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”  (Mark 7:21-23, NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/mar/7/21-23/s_964021

    The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 2) shows it’s impossible to follow Jesus from a distance:
    CS LEWIS quotes:  "The soul is but a hollow which God fills. Its union with God is, almost by definition, a continual self-abandonment." (The Problem with Pain) MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE Quotes : "I can say that I never knew what joy was like until I gave up pursuing happiness. I never cared to live until I chose to die. For these two discoveries I am beholden to Jesus." Your religion is vile to God - unless Jesus is your Lord The Prophet Zechariah wrote: "12 I said to them, "If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain." So, they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. 13 And the Lord said to me, "Throw it to the potter" — that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord for the potter."

  • Sep 5, 2021Matthew 26:47-68 – The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 1)
    Sep 5, 2021
    Matthew 26:47-68 – The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 1)
    Matthew 26:47-68 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 1) is the first of a mini-series of six illegal trials Jesus endured by the religious leaders of Israel. John 18 records the First Illegal Trial of Jesus before Annas the former High Priest. Annas' corruption reveals that without Jesus man is astonishingly evil. Matthew 26:47-68 – The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus (Part 1) begins with the betrayal of one of His disciples Judas. Jesus is led before Annas, where Jesus' First Illegal Trial transpires. Next, Jesus is taken to Caiaphas the High Priest, and the high court of the Sanhedrin in the darkness of the early morning for the Second Illegal Trial of Jesus.
     
     
    The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus did not follow the law of God's Word:
     
    Moses wrote:   " You shall appoint judges and officers in all your gates, which the LORD your God gives you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with just judgment.  You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous.  You shall follow what is altogether just, that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God is giving you. " Deuteronomy 16:18–20 (NKJV)
     
    Matthew 26:47-68 - The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus
     
     
    The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus shows how corrupt mankind is without Jesus:
     
    Without Jesus man is ASTONISHINGLY EVIL
    Through Jesus we are BORN AGAIN to new life
    The Apostle Paul said:  "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."  2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
    Judas was a FAKE CHRISTIAN – He was not born again
    The FIRST Illegal Trials of Jesus – John 18:12-12
     
    Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him. And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was high priest that year. John 18:12-13 (NKJV)
     https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/jhn/18/12-13/s_1015012
     
    The SECOND Illegal Trials of Jesus – Matthew 26:57
     
    And those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. Matthew 26:57 (NKJV)   https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/mat/26/57/s_955057
     
     
     
    The SIX ILLEGAL TRIALS of Jesus were prophetically predicted by the Prophet Isaiah:
     
    The Prophet Isaiah says: "I gave My back to those who struck Me, and My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard, I did not hide My face from shame and spitting." Isaiah 50:6 (NKJV)
     
    He was wounded (pierced) for our transgressions, He was bruised (crushed) for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:5–6 (NKJV)

  • Aug 29, 2021Matthew 26:31-46 – Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony
    Aug 29, 2021
    Matthew 26:31-46 - Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony
    Matthew 26:31-46 – Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony
    Matthew 26:31-46 - Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony is when Jesus takes Peter, James and John and asks them to pray with Him.  Gethsemane mean "Oil Press".  Jesus’ decision to endure the cross began with victory at Gethsemane through obedience under agony.  Matthew 26:31-46 - Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony Jesus teaches His disciples the importance of praying before we enter into trials or tribulations.
     
     
    Matthew 26:31-46 - Gethsemane Obedience Under Agony
     Before He was betrayed, arrested, tried and killed Jesus turned to His Father in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. Although Jesus’ disciples thought they would stand by His side, even Peter denied Jesus and was prone to sin. Victory at Gethsemane came not by force or wit, but instead Jesus shows us the important of prayer.
    The prophet Zechariah said, “I will strike the Shepherd and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.”  (Zechariah 13:7, NKJV)   https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/zec/13/7/s_924007
     
    Jesus quotes from the Old Testament to predict Peter’s denial and the abandonment of the disciples. Before Jesus is betrayed He goes to the Garden of Gethsemane to spend time in prayer. Here Jesus reveals the power of prayer as he sweats drops of blood and asks the Father, “Can this cup of wrath pass?”
    Through prayer God gives us power and strength and it is here Jesus lives out obedience under agony. For the first time in all eternity the Trinity was conflicted. Although Jesus asks for the cup to pass, God’s wrath must be satisfied because He is just, holy and sin cannot go unpunished. Life is not a fairy tale and God is not magic. Jesus will have victory at Gethsemane because He submits to His Father’s will. Our salvation was contingent upon Jesus obediently going to the cross. Gethsemane reveals the depth of Jesus' sorrow, the intensity of Jesus' prayer (not what I want, but what God wants) and the strength of Jesus' resolve. Why would Jesus allow His own Son to endure such a terrible trial and death? Why do we go through such hardship? Some blessings God cannot give us until we are mature enough to contain the blessings. God's blessings cannot take us where our character cannot hold us. Our victory is found in prayer and it is in prayer where God develops our character to align our will with His. Be encouraged Christian, there is power in prayer and our salvation is secure in Jesus alone who is faithful.

    Aug 22, 2021
    Jude 1 - Atheist's Objections to God
    Jude 1 – Atheist’s Objections to God
    Series: Topical
    Jude 1 - Atheist's Objections to God by Guest Speaker Charlie Campbell. Charlie Campbell provides excellent responses to Skeptics Objections to God. Jude 1 - Atheist's Objections to God is a summarized version his book "One-Minute Answers to Skeptics"
     
    Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Topics Covered in this message are:

     Is God's existence real? Wasn't the Bible written by men? If God is loving, why does He allow evil and suffering? Does the Bible condone slavery? Isn't evolution scientifically proven? The Bible oppresses women right? Why do Christians hate homosexuals? Listen to Charlie Campbell point us to God and His Word as he answers Atheists' Objections to God.

    Atheists often assert there is no evidence for God. As Christians we are called to contend for the faith (Jude 1:3) and to be equipped with providing evidence for God. The expanse of the Universe, billions of stars, the precise nature of the Earth's axis and even the complexity of our DNA and bodily functions all point to intelligent design by a creator. Objections to God and HIs existence cannot stand in the face of creation in all its' details and created purpose.

    Evolution has been proven false time and time again when we consider the dis-proven Fossil Records of "Ida", "Lucy", "Neanderthal man", "Nebraska man", and "Piltdown man." Atheists' objections to God are often rooted in misinformation or simply a posture of no matter what God reveals it's never enough to convince the skeptic.

    Many Atheists cling to straw-man arguments founded on the Bible's standard of homosexuality, Cannanite genocide, slavery and the inerrancy of Scripture. Despite popular Atheist belief the Bible condemns the oppression of women, slavery and the mistreatment or cruelty of anyone, which includes homosexuals. We are called to be kind to all people, but Christians can disagree with all kinds of lifestyles engrossed in sinful practices.

    Many Atheists believe Christians are trying to force their beliefs on others, which is contrary to the Good News (Gospel) as it is a free gift offered to all. At the end of the day Atheists' Objections to God fall short in front of a loving and merciful God willing to receive anyone who will come to Him through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    The Book of Proverbs - Wisdom for Today
    The Book of Proverbs – Wisdom for Today
    Series: Topical
    The Book of Proverbs - Wisdom for Today is wisdom in practical matters of life, application of knowledge and a right relationship with God.  Our world has never possessed so much knowledge and information as we do now.  The Book of Proverbs - Wisdom for Today points out the disparity between what the bible teaches as wisdom versus what we see happening in our world today.
     
    The world has never been so educated and literate as it is today yet, it is evident our world continues to spiral into the dark abyss of sin, selfishness and madness.  How can we be so intelligent with technology more advanced than ever, but still find our world ripping itself apart?  The Book of Proverbs reveals our world is devoid of wisdom.
     
     
    The Book of Proverbs - Wisdom for Today
     
    Wisdom does not come from a specific political party- a collegiate degree of some kind - the flag of a certain nation - or a race of people that is superior to others.  Wisdom comes from one source, above, God's Word and is given through His Holy Spirit.   In a floundering world with both infrastructure and societies crumbling- we must remember - God has given His church wisdom; not simply knowledge - but the character and the power to apply we we know to a world in desperate need of a Savior.
     
    Wisdom for today comes through dependence on God and a humble heart.
    King Solomon says: "Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." (Proverbs 9:10, NKJV)    https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/pro/9/10/s_637010
     
    When gossip stops conflict end. 
    King Solomon says: "Where there is no wood, the fire goes out; And where there is no talebearer, strife ceases.  As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, So is a contentious man to kindle strife. The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body." (Proverbs 26:20-22, NKJV)

  • Aug 8, 2021Daniel 1:1-21 – Purposed In Heart
    Aug 8, 2021
    Daniel 1 - Purposed In Heart
    Daniel 1:1-21 – Purposed In Heart
    Series: Topical
    Daniel 1:1-21 – Purposed In Heart is a story of four young men who are purposed in heart to walk in obedience with God even after being abducted and taken captive to Babylon. Daniel 1:1-21 – Purposed In Heart portrays king Nebuchadnezzar ‘s plan and purpose for selecting Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah who were young men from the tribe of Judah. He tried convert them to the Babylonian culture by re-naming them to Belteshazzar; Shadrach, Meschach and Abed-Nego. They endure the spiritual assault of the enemy by staying purposed in heart. Although these four teenagers are far from home, community and temple worship their hearts are fixed on God, which make them resolved to stand firm.
     
    Daniel 1 - Purposed In Heart
     
     
    The Apostle Paul says: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. ” (Ephesians 6:10-13, NKJV) 
     
    https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/eph/6/10-13/s_1103010 
     
    The temptations of Babylon were abounding for Daniel and his friends and the enemy in our own lives attacks our spiritual disciplines, culture and knowledge and identity. Daniel purposed in heart not to defile himself with the king's food. Daniel's obedience reveals a heart fixed on God's glory and not our own.
     
    Purposed in heart stems from a heart fixed on God focused on God's Word. Daniel and his friends discover that a heart fixed on God produces an abundant life. Daniel and his three friends fight a spiritual battle through obedience and wisdom found in God's Word. God's faithfulness leads Daniel and his friend to an abundant life evident to all. As followers of Jesus we are called to be purposed in heart as we live a sanctified life in Christ.
  • Aug 1, 2021Matthew 26:31-35 – Prone To Self-Sufficiency
    Aug 1, 2021
    Matthew 26 - Prone To Self-Sufficiency
    Matthew 26:31-35 – Prone To Self-Sufficiency
    Matthew 26:31-35 - Prone to Self-Sufficiency is the story where Jesus foretells Peter's denial of knowing Him. Jesus show His sovereignty.  Jesus meets His disciples where they are spiritually to take them where they need to be. Matthew 26:31-35 - Prone to Self-Sufficiency shows that Peter was tragically unaware of both the spiritual reality and the spiritual battle that Jesus clearly saw. Peter felt brave at the moment and had no perception beyond the moment. Soon, Jesus said this not to condemn His disciples, but to show them that He really was in command of the situation, and to demonstrate that the Scriptures regarding the suffering of the Messiah must be fulfilled.
     
     
     
     

    Being prone to self-sufficiency caused Peter to question God's revealed word. God's Word Reveals God's Will.

    The Prophet Isaiah says:  "Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand." (Isaiah 53:10, NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/isa/53/10/s_732010
     
    The Prophet Zechariah says: "Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, Against the Man who is My Companion," Says the LORD of hosts. "Strike the Shepherd, And the sheep will be scattered; Then I will turn My hand against the little ones." (Zechariah 13:7, NKJV)   https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/zec/13/7/s_924007
     
     
    Spiritual Growth Comes by Grace Not by Merit.  Grace Flows through the Channel of Brokenness.  Humbleness come from who we are not what we do.  The disciple James says:  "But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "GOD RESISTS THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE." Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
    Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
    Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up." (James 4:6-10, NKJV)

  • Jul 25, 2021Matthew 26:14-30 – The Last Supper Uncaused Love
    Jul 25, 2021
    The Last Supper Uncaused Love
    Matthew 26:14-30 – The Last Supper Uncaused Love
    Matthew 26:14-30 – The Last Supper Uncaused Love is the incredible story of Jesus instituting the first communion with His disciples. In the midst of Christ's looming crucifixion, Jesus displays uncaused love for us. At The Last Supper we are reminded that Judas Betrays Jesus for 30 pieces of sliver. There is a little Judas in all of us. In His sovereignty, affirmed in Zechariah 11:12-13, Jesus knew His betrayal would happen and even still Jesus makes Himself vulnerable and demonstrates His uncaused love for His disciples to the end.
     
    The Last Supper Uncaused Love
     
     
    Read Zechariah 11:12-13  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/zec/11/12-13/s_922012
     
    None of Jesus’ disciples really understood His uncaused love for them. They often jockeyed for position to see who would be the greatest among them. Personal gain comes from following Jesus, but riches are not the reason we follow Jesus. Matthew 26:14-30 - Last Supper Uncaused Love reveals that Jesus Himself is the end goal and we follow Jesus to know Jesus. Jesus predicts His betrayal and the disciples ask Jesus, "Lord, is it I?" How do we know if we have a genuine relationship with God?
    Genuine relationship with God is not marked by Hyper Spirituality, but humility. The Lordship of Jesus is revealed by humility and a fervent desire to obey God's Word. During The Last Supper Jesus displays the ultimate servant leadership by washing the disciple’s feet and it is then the disciples recognize we are flawed sinners.
    As the disciples take part in The Last Supper Jesus gives them unleavened bread, which represents the sinless life of Jesus. Jesus also gives them a cup of wine, which represents the new Covenant found in the blood of Jesus. In His final moments Jesus reveals His uncaused love for us at The Last Supper by giving of Himself so that we can receive salvation through the Lamb of God.

    Lavish Worship
    Matthew 26:1-16 – Lavish Worship
    Matthew 26:1-16 - Lavish Worship by Pastor David Menard. The Mission Church Carlsbad
     
    When Jesus finishes the Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24-25 He is met with an incredible display of lavish worship. In Matthew 26:1-16 - Lavish Worship is demonstrated by many of Jesus' followers. Jesus reminded His disciples that He will be crucified at the hands of the chief priests. The scene takes place as Jesus is eating in the home of Simon the Leper. Mary, the sister of Lazarus, comes in and pours an alabaster jar of expensive perfume on Jesus' head as her expression of lavish worship. Mary gave her best to Jesus! Generosity is the fruit of those who lavish worship on Jesus. Lavish Worship
    Although Mary expresses lavish worship, Jesus' disciples were critical of her eccentric generosity. A critical spirit often masquerades as righteousness and is the fruit of those who are self-seeking. However, lavish worship and generosity is the fruit of those who worship Jesus. Lavish worship touches God's heart as He leads us from isolation into community where we seek Jesus together.
    Jesus is willing to receive lavish worship as He is the fulfillment of the Old Testament Scriptures; He is the Messiah! Israel had 7 feasts or holy days meant to display lavish worship of God. Passover is the most important feast day focused on the sacrificial lamb and lavish worship for God who delivered them from slavery in Egypt. The second is the feast of Unleavened Bread. The third is the feast of First Fruits, which takes place 3 days after Passover, and is fulfilled in Jesus' resurrection. The fourth feast fulfilled in Jesus' 1st coming is the feast of Weeks, which takes place 50 days after Passover; also known as Pentecost when the Holy Spirit fills Jesus' followers. Jesus fulfills 4 out of the 7 Feasts of Israel in His life, death and resurrection; He is worthy of our lavish worship!
    Jesus is only a day away from celebrating the Passover with His disciples and it is the perfume and oil from Mary that would leave a scented reminder of her lavish worship as He suffers through betrayal, trials, scourging and crucifixion. His sovereignty is on display in the crucifixion as He gives up His life willingly. The LORD Jesus is worthy of our lavish worship!
