Prophecy and Christ as Fulfillment


Canon

A 3 Part Sermon Series


The authority of the Word of God is being openly challenged today, even from within the Church. Though this has been true in nearly every generation, it is possible to have confidence and boldness in the timeless, eternal, and flawless character of Scripture. In this message, Eric Ludy explains the Canon Test (which God gave Moses to prove the authority of His Word) and shows how this “canon” was used throughout Scripture and is now applied in our lives. The climatic reality is that Jesus Christ has fulfilled the Canon Test and has the divine right to rule and control our lives. This sermon will leave you awestruck as you listen to how Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament in perfection.


The Lineage of Majesty

Sunday, April 28, 2013
You thought genealogies were boring? Well, not after this message, you won’t! Throughout world history, the Hebrews have stood unmatched in their maintenance of genealogies, lineage, and descent. God promised them that from their bloodline would come One who would rescue the world from sin. This "Deliverer" would be of the seed of the woman, born of a virgin, born in Bethlehem, and would be from of everlasting. Well, this "Deliverer" has come. And just as promised, He was born of a virgin girl in Bethlehem, and He was no mere man. He was God born in the body of a man. Buckle your seat belt for this one!

The Twenty-Four Elders

Sunday, March 23, 2014
In John's gospel, Jesus spoke to the Pharisees one day and declared that all Scripture testifies of Him. The fulfillment of prophecies assure us of the canonicity of the Old Testament, but what provides us confidence in the canonicity of the New Testament? This message delves into the book of Revelation and reveals the heavenly witness to the validity of the Word of God in the New Testament. What a privilege we have as believers to have so many reasons to believe the testimony of our Lord and His life on this earth!

Who Is This Jesus?

Sunday, July 15, 2012
This message is a beautiful and awe-inspiring defense of the God-ness, Greatness, and Grandeur of Jesus Christ. Throughout Christian history, the integrity and divinity of Jesus has always been under attack, and even in our modern day, the barrage is fierce against Him. However, the Bible does not stutter on this point. And, likewise, this particular message doesn't stutter in its presentation of Christ's preeminence. Jesus is God and Creator, come to this earth to make for Himself a New Creation. May every knee bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord!

The Last Adam

Sunday, April 14, 2013
As it says in Scripture, it was by one man's disobedience (Adam) that sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and that thusly death passed upon us all. But that is not the end of the story. For it was by one man—the last Adam, Jesus—that the gift of grace has abounded to many, and many shall be made righteous... and live! To behold the love, beauty, power, and majesty of this “last Adam” is to witness the heart of God for each one of us.

The Shewbread

Sunday, September 8, 2013
This message is about Jesus, the Bread of Life, who came to save all who partake of Him. The showbread in the tabernacle was much more than just bread; it was a foreshadow of the one born in Bethlehem (the House of Bread). Jesus came to show forth the Father, and in Him we behold the Great I AM. Come and see what the Showbread revealed!

Before Abraham Was

Sunday, May 4, 2014
If Jesus was not the Son of God, would it change much about what we believe? The truth is, it would change everything. The divinity of Christ is under major attack in the emergent movement and often treated as an inconsequential detail. However, the entire Gospel unravels if we compromise on this point. This message reminds us of the significance of Christ being God and the power that it gives the Gospel. May the privilege of having Immanuel, “God with us,” never cease to inspire awe!

When Kings Go Forth to Battle

Sunday, April 1, 2012
This message reveals not only the brilliance and supernatural quality of Scripture, but also the entire Hebrew culture from which Jesus came. In the springtime (a.k.a. the month of Nisan to the Jews), kings would set forth to battle. And it was during the time when the barley was turning green in Israel that our King Jesus climbed aboard a colt and humbly entered Jerusalem as a man of war. And by the end of the week He was stripped naked, turned to a bloody pulp, nailed to a wooden gibbet, and laid in a borrowed grave... dead. His style of battle was undoubtedly different than that of any successful general before Him. But never has a general, neither before Him nor after Him, enjoyed such a victory. For without the aid of a single soldier or a single weapon, this divine man of war destroyed all the powers of Earth and Hell. As a result of His war effort, sin no longer has power and death no longer has a sting. This seemingly harmless carpenter's son is truly the Lord of battle, and when He sets out for war, He will not be denied His reward.
