Let This Cup Pass from Me

Transcript (Download Podcast Here)

    After three years of ministry, Jesus found himself nearing his death. The last time he was with his disciples before his execution was in the garden of Gethsemane. I believe this is where Jesus experienced his most vulnerable moment: for this was the moment before he would be taken and persecuted; he knew the moment was coming, and he feared it. He told his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John. He paused, then instructed the disciples he took with him to remain in their spot as he went farther and for them to watch him. Christ fell on his face, and prayed, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”

    Jesus returned to Peter, James, and John, after praying for an hour only to find them asleep. He woke them and told them to watch and pray, warning them not to enter into temptation, and reminding them the spirit is willing, bu…

The Parable of the Sower (Four Soils)

The Parable of the Sower, also known as the Parable of the Four Soils, takes place by the seaside; Jesus is on a boat, and on the coast is a multitude of people who are ready to hear his message. Jesus was on this boat because such a vast number of people were there to hear his word that he had to be on the boat to ensure that all could hear him. Jesus said to the people, in Mark 4, “3Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:4And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.5And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:6But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.7And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.8And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.…

The Parable of the Cloth and the Bottles

14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. 16No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
This is the Parable of the Cloth and the Bottles. Let’s find out what Jesus is trying to say here. To begin, the reason behind this parable is that the disciples of John the Baptist asked Jesus, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answers them, in verse fifteen, saying, “…

This is War
            In Genesis, we learn that God created the world, and everything in the world. God breathed life into Adam, and from Adam’s rib God created Eve to be his companion. Adam and Eve were created in the image of God. God gave man dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every creature on the land. God also gave man all the fruit of the trees to eat—except for one. God told man not to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, lest they will die. Both obeyed until the serpent deceived Eve. The serpent lied to her, telling her she would not die if she ate the tree’s fruit. Then she gave the fruit to Adam to eat, and he did. Now, as God had warned, they both, and all of mankind to follow, would surely die, and God made the serpent to eat the dust of the earth, and made man and serpent enemies, from that day forth. From that day forth, man knew the difference between good and evil; and, f…
