The Divinity of Christ in Eternal Existence

The Divinity of Christ in Eternal Existence

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” (verse 1)  Who is Jesus?  The gospel actually starts before the foundation of the world!  Who is Jesus?  This text gives us an earth-shaking and most amazing answer to that question, one that defies apathy!  He is not…  […]

The Baptism of Jesus

The Baptism of Jesus

Do you remember what compelled you to be baptized?  We don’t do infant baptism because we believe it should be a choice – it’s something that signifies what God has done and is doing inside us.  It is an outward sign of the inward commitment that we have made!  It becomes a testimony that we […]

The Call of the Kingdom Comes at Personal Cost to Jesus

The Call of the Kingdom Comes at Personal Cost to Jesus

“And they rose up and cast Him out of the city, and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which the city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff.” (verse 29).  Very early on in His ministry, Jesus faced rejection from His own friends and relatives; from His […]

The Call of the First Disciples

The Call of the First Disciples

“And He said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’” (verse 19).  Calling Disciples into the Kingdom.  This is the call of Christ to us: Having repented we now follow in His footsteps.  Who were the disciples and what were they called from?  This is key: From the beginning Jesus […]

The Rapture

The Rapture

This is the first in a series of presentations done by Pastor J.A. Heiser at East Bend in 1967.  These audio recordings were originally done on reel to reel tapes, then transferred to audio cassettes by Paul Springer.  Because of Paul “Pete” Springer’s forethought, we are able to enjoy them yet today.  Duane Birkey recently […]
