Sermons by Joe Khan (Page 5)
When we come to salvation in Christ what are we actually doing? Is it turning over a new leaf? Is it making a new commitment? Is it embracing a new community or set of rules for life? Or is it something more? As we look at the rite of baptism we are going to see how this ritual is far more than mere ritual, and how it mirrors the kind of salvation we have received.
Every week in church we preach the gospel. Why? I mean if the congregation are already believers why do we persist with this same message? As we begin our Gospel Drama series, we take a look at preaching and why it is vital for both the church and the world.
We have heard about the glorious wonder of our soon-to-be future in the New Heavens and the New Earth; and it captivated our hearts. But when we look at the world as it is now, we see a different reality. So as John rounds out the account of his vision that he will send to the churches, we will see him refocus the attention of the churches onto what it is we should do as we wait for our future…
Many people have a vision of Heaven that is ethereal, like sitting on a cloud with a harp. As we come near to the end of Revelation, John is shown a vision of our future that blows this white cloud idea out of the water. Join us as we unpack the glorious wonder of our eternal home.
The question of the Millennium for many Christians is one of confusion, controversy and division. For others it is the critical issue in studying Revelation. As we work our way through this tricky passage, we will see that this 1000 year reign has far more to offer than controversy.
The call to holiness is often viewed as a call to drudgery, boredom and joyless discipline. Normally we have combated this misunderstanding by highlighting that holiness is joyfulness, liberty and true life… but Revelation 18 has a different take on it that is equally valid. When God calls His people to “come out” from Babylon, He is doing so because of Babylon’s destiny… a destiny He longs to spare His people from.
In Revelation 17 we see the two main thrusts of evil in the world and they are not like anything we might have imagined. Join Pastor Joe as he uncovers the nature of this evil and how Jesus, the Lion and the Lamb, can empower our wrestle against it.
We often speak about the coming of God’s Kingdom like it will just one day appear… but kingdoms do not come silently. The Scriptures tell of the Kingdom of God like it will be a stone that crushes all other kingdoms to dust. Well in Revelation 15-16 we catch a glimpse of this earth-shattering arrival. Join us as Pastor Joe helps us come to grips with the day of God’s coming wrath.
TriChurch Summit is a collaborative ministry of Grange Baptist, Enoggera Baptist & Rosalie Baptist. Joe Khan (Rosalie Baptist) examines the biggest obstacle to us joining the mission of God and challenges us to look at our lives and shake free from that which hinders us in the mission.
We have seen the epic drama of an angry dragon making war on the people of God in a last ditch effort to cause damage to the plan of God. While the victory of God is assured, God still has to watch His people endure the threats of the dragon. How will God respond when His people are threatened? How will He display His love to them?
