Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Sermon Notes from Revelation 1:4-7, "Prophet, Priest, and King," by Tray Earnhart.

[This morning, Abby and I kept nursery, so I was unable to hear the sermon. This afternoon, we took some time to listen to the sermon preached on Easter Sunday at Kosmosdale Baptist Church, which we missed since we were out of town. The following are some notes I took while listening to this sermon. The sermon is available to hear on-line HERE.]

Revelation 1:4-7

3 Main Offices in the Old Testament, Which Christ Fulfills

I. Prophet (Deut 18:18, x ref. Acts 3:22)

II. Priest (Hebrews)

III. King (Deut 17:14-17, x ref. John 1:43-49; 18:33-38); two duties of this king:

A. He defeated our enemies

1. 1 Cor 15:20-26. In His resurrection, Jesus defeated death.

2. In our salvation, Jesus defeated the tyranny of sin.

B. He rules and reigns

1. Isa 9:7; Jer 23:5.

2. Examples of proper authorities, established by God:

a. Families

b. Teachers

c. Government

3. Mankind has rebelled against God’s authority.

4. “We need someone to rule and reign over our sinful hearts.”

-> Our response to the above must be submission; repent and put your faith in Him.
