Jesus Loves me This I know

A new message preached from 1 Corinthians chapter 14 verse 1 by J Stewart Gillespie:

 

1 Corinthians chp 14 vs 1 – Jesus Loves me This I Know – J Stewart Gillespie – 29032016

 

Outline notes from this message:

We noticed last time that we considered 1 Co 13:10; ‘that which is perfect

We suggested that this was a reference to the completeness and perfection of Divine Revelation not presently in the Bible but in a future day at the return of Christ

We suggested 3 major reasons why ‘that which is perfect’ cannot be a reference to the completed canon of scripture:

  1. We noted that in verses 8 and 9 that ‘prophecies’ fell into the category of the passing (verse 8) and the partial (v9). That is that prophecy by its nature is subject to a frame of time and moves through distinct phases of revelation, expectation and then fulfillment. Until that prophecy is fulfilled exactly what it means is the subject of interpretation, and until it is fulfilled its full meaning will remain unclear. Any revelation therefore dependent upon unfulfilled prophecy cannot be the ‘perfect’ or fullness of revelation. The Bible contains unfilled prophecy, it is in fact, ‘a more sure word of prophecy,’ and thus cannot be that complete revelation.

  1. Perfect revelation requires perfect preparation of the individual to receive it (13:11); that perfect preparation is the ongoing work of God in us, transforming and conforming us to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29), a work which will only be complete when we meet Christ (1 John 3:2), perfect revelation and comprehension, ‘to know even as I am known,’ must await that future day.

  2. The imagery of 1 Co 13:12, in referring to seeing through the glass darkly uses the image of the Bible – the glass, used in 2 Corinthians chp 3:18 and James 1:23, that is the position of the present, the future position is, ‘face to face.’

That perhaps leaves us with something of a problem then, if I am saying that, ‘that which is perfect,’ lies in the future, am I then left with the continuance of sign gifts till then? Do I expect miracles, tongues, prophecy and wonders to continue until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ?

No.

7 reasons for the cessation of sign gifts:

  1. Specifically of ‘tongues’ verse 8, we are told that they shall ‘cease’ – middle tense, they are given for a purpose, discussed in 1 Corinthians chp 14 and then of their own accord will stop. They only appear 3 X in the Acts of the apostles, and then here in 1 Corinthians, when they are abused / misused.

  2. The sign gifts were essentially signs of the apostles; Acts 5:12; 2:43; 2 Co 12:12; Heb 2:3-4. The apostles were those who saw the Lord in His death (11/12) and His resurrection (12/12) (Acts 1:22). If someone today claims to have the gift of miracles / prophecy / wonders then your first response can be; ‘you must be an awful lot older than you look.’

  3. Prophecy was foundational to the church (1 Co 3:10-12; Eph 2:20) – we cannot go back after 2000 years and re-lay the foundation! Well that’s not entirely true, outside my house you can see 2 or 3 great foundation stones from the Arthur memorial church, layed over 100 years ago. You can change the foundation, but to do so, they had to first demolish the church. That is precisely what happens when we re-lay the foundations!

  1. The faith which we hold and believe has been “once and for all” (Vincents Word Studies), delivered unto the saints; Jude 1:3 and is now to be passed on (2 Tim 2:1-2) rather than being freshly revealed (2 Tim 2:1-2). The passing of the baton.

  2. Revelation 22:18-19 makes it clear that we cannot add to the NT scripture – no new revelation

  3. The overall pattern of the Bible – supernatural signs and the gift of miracles were never normative; they occur during only 3 phases of history:

  1. Moses and Aaron,

  2. Elijah and Elisha

  3. Christ and the Apostles

  1. When we come to later epistles, the exhortation is not to prophesy but to expound scripture; read, study, and teach scripture: 1 Timothy 3:1-2; 4:6,13-16; 2 Tim 2:15; 3:14-17. Herein leis the real problem with the charismatic movement; not so much in the gifts which they think they have and do not possess but in dwelling on the fake and fraudulent they miss what God really does have for us.

The problem with all of that was not so much what he said – babbling in tongues; the problem lies more with what he did not say; all of the blessings which God has in His Word for us, were ignored.

‘Follow after love and desire spiritual gifts but rather that ye may prophesy’        (1 Corinthians 14:1)

So we might find at Corinth, brother Jim, he has the gift of prophecy, you may ask, well why does brother Jim prophecy? From 1 Corinthians 14:1 you could rightly say that brother Jim prophecies as a consequence of love. It is because he loves Gods people at Corinth that he prophecies. But you knew brother Jim from years ago; from when he worked and lived in Corinth, you may well scratch your head at that explanation and tell me, but I knew brother Jim years ago, when he bought and sold and lived in Corinth, all he was interested in was himself, in maximising his profit and pursuing his pleasures.

If brother Jim is now acting out of self sacrificial love, well that is something new! Where did he get that love from? You know the answer to that of course. Brother Jim got saved. Brother Jim was born again, he is a new creature in Christ, filled by His Spirit and the fruit of that Spirit which is; ‘love, joy, peace, longsuffering…’

Let’s just bring all of that together then, all of that means that the exercise of brother Jim’s gift, that gift of prophecy is ultimately a product of Gods love for Jim and Gods love for His people through the ministry of Jim? Is that correct?

So if I ask the question, how do I know that God loves me? I can look back into the past and remember Calvary (John 3:16) but I can also look into the present and perceive His ongoing love and care for me in the provision of the ministry of His Word.

Sometimes you will hear Christians say some very ill thought out things and I wouldn’t like you to imbibe them! Statements such as:

  • I’m not so much interested in the Word of God, I’m more interested in the love of God

  • There really wasn’t enough love in that place, a lot of Bible teaching.

You see God continues to express His love for us, in the care that He shows for us in the teaching and ministry of His Word.

Disregard for that, prioritising other things before that is really a disregard for the love of God and that has costs and consequences.

I’ve noticed it over the years, a particular Word of ministry, Word in the Gospel, that would have been particularly helpful to some of Gods people, but they had absented themselves that evening for other things. God’s love had been extended and rejected. They were the poorer for it.

‘to another the gifts of healing…’

 

Just added, a new message preached by Dr J Stewart Gillespie:

 

1 Corinthians chp 12 vs 9 – To Another the Gifts of Healing – JS Gillespie

 

Outline notes available for this message:

 

What differentiated the Corinthians old dead religious experience from the new experience of Christ was the genuine presence of God amongst them:

Matthew 18:20: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Where Gods presence is.

That is the Christian gathering is not primarily a gathering:

  • To talk about God
  • To teach about God
  • To debate about God
  • To discuss about God

The distinctive feature of the Christian gathering is:

  • To meet with God

Where Gods presence is, that presence is knowable.

Subjectively:

Gods presence is knowable by:

  • Gods Peace – John 20

  • Gods Purity – John 9

  • Gods Pleasure – Psalm 16

Objectively – the Revelation of God:

  • God spoke (1 Corinthians 12:3)

  • God revealed Himself

What do we desire for our local Church / fellowship / assembly in the year ahead?

  • spiritual growth?

  • numerical growth?

  • Unity of believers?

  • Good Bible teaching?

  • Effective evangelism?

All of this certainly, but all is but a shell / sham if this is not true:

The Presence of God with us.

That is, as we gather together with:

Sin in my heart – It is exposed

Burdens pressing down upon me – they are lifted by His joy

Trouble in my heart – it is calmed by His presence

And this all from the defining feature of the assemblies :

  • not emotionalism

  • not hype

  • not a multimedia extravaganza

All this form the fact that as we gather God speaks

This must be our defining feature

Not just the doctrinal claim of His Presence, but the power and reality and proof of His presence, that He is with us and that is known by the fact God speaks

This needs to be the expectation of Gods people

This needs to be the preparation of our preachers

We ought to settle for not giving less

 

Not only could they claim that God spoke but they could prove that God spoke!

In verses 4 to 11 the apostle will present the proof of it

9 distinct spiritual gets and yet all are:

  • Consistent

  • Coherent

  • Coordinated

Between individuals and over time

Drawn together by unity of:

  • Origin (v4)
  • Order (v5)

  • Outcome (v6)

We noticed that as the Spirit of God gave:

‘Wisdom’ to Bezaleel in the tabernacle it was with the purpose of presenting the work of Christ as an elaborate parable, or more germane to 1 Corinthians chapter 12, when Joseph is given that ‘Word of Wisdom’ it is to complete an elaborate picture of the:

‘Person of Christ’

to another faith

Abraham:

  1. Personal faith

  2. Practical faith

  3. Prophetic faith

All lead him to Christ

‘to another the Gifts of healing…’

We will notice in these Old Testament records of healing that we do not have a random collection of miracles but rather one consistent pattern of:

  • Origin

  • Order

  • Outcome

It has to be noted that when it comes to healing miracles that there is a very uneven distribution of this miracles through the Bible.

The distribution of helping miracles is certainly more akin to  strawberry jam than jelly, a very lumpy distribution indeed.

Book of Genesis – 2300 years approx of Biblical history we have no examples of the gift of healing, one intercession prayer by Abraham for God to heal Abimelech

From Exodus to Malachi – approx 1500 years of biblical history we have approximately 7 occasions when we have the gift of healing:

  • Exodus to Deuteronomy – 3 examples of the gift of healing
  • 1 Kings – 1 example of the gift of healing – Widow of Zarephaths son by Elijah
  • 2 Kings – 3 examples of the gifts of healing
  1. Healing at Marah – (Exodus 15)
  2. Healing from the fiery serpents (Numbers 21)

Healing during a period of Satanic attack

Satan as a serpent

3 animals in scripture linked with Satan:

  1. Serpent – deception by dissatisfaction and doubt – cf. Genesis chp 3
  2. Lion – Destruction (1 Peter 5)
  3. Dragon – Dominion (Rev 12:3-17)
  1. Healing of Miriams Leprosy (Numbers 12)
  2. Healing of the widow of Zarephaths son (1 Kings 17)
  3. Healing of the Shunammites son
  4. Healing of Namaans leprosy
  5. Resurrection of the dead man thrown into Elishas grave

From Matthew to Acts – mainly in the gospels, over a period of only 4 years we have a multiplication of healings, innumerable healings performed by Christ and His disciples, so any in fact that at times the gospels will record:

“healed all” – Matthew 8:16

“healed many” – Mark 1:34

“healed many” – Mark 3:10

The prototype of all healing miracles – Exodus 15:22-27

This is arguably the first time that God gives the gift of helaing, not necessarily the first time that God heals but the first time that God delegates this healing ability as a gift.

Interestingly on this occasion no one will be healed; yet Exodus 15 is the prototype of all gifts of healing

At Marah a principle or prototype will be established that will influence and impact on all other biblical healings

Why do I make such a claim?

At Marah God will reveal Himself for the first time as: Jehovah Ropheka (Exodus 15:26) – The God who heals thee.

In this miracle of healing God establishes :

  1. His identity (Exodus 15:26)
  2. His Ability – His spiritual authority / method by which He heals

Why is it that the first healing miracle / gift of healing is not the healing of a person at all?

For this reason – in order that the tree can be thrown into the equation!

There is a tremendous problem with the gift of healing – the problem of sin and it’s moral consequences.

Sickness is due ultimately to sin.

the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Sickness is the path from perfect health to death

Sickness is thus the consequence of sin

That link is reiterated in Exodus 15:26

We are not of course claiming and the Bible does not teach that our individual personal sin is the cause of our individual personal sickness; (John 9:1-3); any more than our individual and personal death is due necessarily to the cumulative effect of our individual and personal sins (Romans 5:12-14); otherwise the wicked would die young, the good would die old and the infant would never perish in the womb.

The effect of sins presence in this world is to corrupt the perfection of order and creation and this corruption, like pollution affects us all.

If death finds its origins in sin

If sickness is the means to death

Then sickness is ultimately authored by sin

To remove sickness is thus ultimately not purely a medical exercise but a moral one (Rev 21:4)

Thus God can no more arbitrarily deal with sickness than He can with sin

To deal with sickness there is a cost!

That cost is a moral and spiritual cost, just as it was for sin itself; only in the atoning work of Christ can God be both Just and the Justifier of those who believe in Jesus (Romans 3).

Gods power to heal lies as much in the work of Christ on the tree as much as His power to save does.

Healing draws it’s power from the cross of Christ (Isaiah 53:5)

For God to heal is ultimately for God to deal with sin – Luke chp 5:17ff; Mark 2:5ff.

It all depends upon the addition of the tree

We cannot remove healing from the work of Christ

Gods gift of healing is always designed to draw us to Christ.

‘to another faith…’

 

Just added , a new message preached from 1 Corinthians chapter 12 verse by J Stewart Gillespie:

 

1 Corinthians chp 12 vs 9 – to another faith…- JS Gillespie

 

Outline notes are available from this message:

 

What differentiated the Corinthians old dead religious experience from the new experience of Christ was the genuine presence of God amongst them:

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

That is the Christian gathering is not primarily a gathering:

The distinctive feature of the Christian gathering is that here we meet with God

Where Gods presence is, that presence is knowable.

Subjectively:

  • Gods presence is knowable by:

  • Gods Peace – John 20

  • Gods Purity – John 9

  • Gods Pleasure – Psalm 16

Objectively:

  • God spoke

  • God revealed Himself

The Bible nowhere sets out arguments to prove the existence of God:

  1. Gods non existence is not an argument worth debating – Psalm 14:1
  2. The denial of God is a consequence of Gods withdrawal and abandonment – Romans chp 1
  3. The existence of God is not dependent on an argument but rather the Apostle Paul, The Corinthians are utterly convinced regarding the reality of God, because God speaks.

Of course anyone could claim that God speaks, but it is an altogether different matter to prove it.

In verses 4 to 11 the apostle will present the proof of it

9 distinct spiritual gets and yet all are:

  1. Consistent

  2. Coherent
  3. Coordinated

Between individuals and over time

Drawn together by unity of:

  1. Origin (v4)

  2. Order (v5)

  3. Outcome (v6)

We noticed that as the Spirit of God gave:

‘Wisdom’ to Bezaleel in the tabernacle it was with the purpose of presenting the work of Christ as an elaborate parable, or more Germaine to 1 Corinthians chapter 12, when Joseph is given that ‘Word of Wisdom’ it is to complete an elaborate picture of the:

‘Person of Christ’

We would like to look at the 3rd of these gifts in 1 Corinthians 12:9 :

to another faith

When God has gifted ‘faith’, He has always done so with the purpose of drawing us to the Person of Christ.

It may be tempting to think with some commentators of ‘faith’ here in the context of:

  • extraordinary faith

  • supernatural faith
  • miracle working faith

As the faith to:

  1. Walk on water – Peter

  2. Slay a giant – David

  3. Destroy the temple of Dagon – Samson

This is undoubtedly contextually relevant, however when it comes to faith there is no substantive difference between what we call:

ordinary faith

and

extraordinary faith

In truth all faith is extraordinary and supernatural

Faith is not defined as faith by the nature of its outcome

If faith was outcome focused then the object of:

  1. Peters faith would be that he could walk on water

  2. David’s faith would be that he could Slay a giant

  3. Samsons faith would be that he could destroy Dagons temple

Then we could be absolutely sure that:

  • Peter would sink

  • David would miss

  • Samson would fail

Faith is measured not by the greatness of its outcome, but the defining feature of faith lies in its object: that is in Christ.

When Peter took his eyes off of Christ, he began to sink (Matt 14:30ff)

Saving faith and supernatural faith so called are in essence thus the same; defined by their object – Christ and not defined by their outcome.

“believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thought shalt be saved”

If there is one person we think of in connection with faith it must be Abraham (Romans 4:16)

Abraham is the father of the faithful

Abrahams Faith:

  1. Personally (Genesis 15:1-6)
  2. Practically (Genesis 14)

  3. Prophetically (Genesis 22)

Abrahams Faith:

Personally

Genesis 15:1-6

Fulfilled in Christ; cf. Genesis 22; Genesis 17:4,7

Abahams personal faith brings him into a relationship with God, a relationship only possible through Christ (Genesis 15:6) – it is only by Christ that God is able to make anyone right by faith cf. Romans chapters 3, 4 and 5.

The terms of Genesis chapter 15 and 17 and 22 point clearly to Christ:

“everlasting covenant” (Gen 17:6)

“everlasting covenant” (Gen 17:13)

“stars of the heaven and the sand of the sea shore” (Gen 22:17-18)

Abrahams personal faith was a faith that:

Justifies

Brought everlasting promise

Produced offspring as the stars of heaven

blesses every nation

The apostle Paul is in no doubt as to how that is possible: Galatians 3:6; Romans 3:26

Practically

Genesis chapter 14

Abraham masters an army to go and recapture Lot from the grip of 5 victorious Kings

Practical faith would lead him to one of the greatest encounters of his life; Genesis 14:17ff

By that practical faith, Abraham encountered Melchizedek – King of Righteousness and King of Peace.

Here is a King / Priest – almost unique in the pages of scripture, until Psalm 110:4 and Hebrews 7:1ff – Christ is our Great High Priest (Hebrews 9:11)

Revelation 19:16

Prophetically

Genesis chapter 22

Thine only Isaac” (22:3)

‘only’ : yahiyd – 12 times in the Ot

The last use of this word ‘only’ (yahyid) is in Zechariah 12:10

Note also it’s use in Psalm 22:20

Consider in Genesis 22:

  • Person – Genesis 22:2 : ‘Thine only’ : ‘yahiyd’ – the Son and the Sacrifice – lamb and burnt offering
  • Place – Moriah – the temple mount

  • Picture – ‘wood’ = ‘tree’

  • Provision (v8)

  • Promise

Abrahams faith leads Prophetically to Christ

 

How to be Sure Really Sure that God Exists

 

Just added, a new message preached by Dr J Stewart Gillespie from 1 Corinthians chapter 12:

 

1 Corinthians chp 12 vs 4 to 11 – How to be Sure Really Sure that God Exists – JS Gillespie – 01122015

 

Knowing the Presence of God – 1 Corinthians chapter 12

Just added; a new message preached by J Stewart Gillespie from 1 Corinthians chapter 12:

 

1 Corinthians chp 12 vs 1 to 11 – Knowing the Presence of God – JS Gillespie – 24112015

 

outline notes available for this message:

Chapter 12 opens with one of those incidentally encouraging sections which we don’t expect to find in a letter like 1 Corinthians.

Four great sources of encouragement :

  1. God Saves

  2. God Sanctifies

  3. God speaks to us

  4. God speaks through us

 

If we could have asked the Corinthians what was it that constituted the main difference between what what the Corinthians had now in their Christian gatherings and what they had then in heathenism, this must have ranked very high in their thinking :

The presence of God (1 Corinthians 14:25, Matthew 18:20)

This had been the promise of Christ (Matthew 18:20)

The essence of the Christian gathering is the Presence of God

This was new they had not had it in heathenism

The question inevitably arises to the enquiring mind; if Christs presence is promised amongst His people, is this a presence I can know, or is it simply a presence that I must take on faith.

Christs presence when real has always been discernable both :

Subjectively

  1. Peace – The disciples in the upper room, gathered for fear of the Jews, doors locked, rumours beginning that some claim to have seen Christ after Calvary, rumours which appear to only add to the fear rather than encourage faith, but Christs presence in Johns gospel will bring PEACE
  2. Purity – Isaiah 6:5, cf. John chp 8
  3. Pleasure – “in thy presence is fullness of Joy and pleasure forevermore” (Psalm 16.11)

Objectively

God speaks – this is the subject of 1 Corinthians chp 12

  • Prophetically : 1 Corinthians 14:24-25

  • Personally : 1 Corinthians 14:24-25; Hebrews 4:12

  • Convicts: Matthew 4:12; John chapter 8

  • Convinces of His presence (1 Corinthians chp 14)

Gods presence is knowable because God speaks (1 Corinthians 12:3)

God would reveal Himself to His people

God would speak to His people, but not only TO His people, God would speak THROUGH His people.

Gods Grace bestows Gods gifts :

This becomes evident from appreciating the origin of the words

gift : charisma (1Co1:7)

grace: charis

Gods gifts are Gods grace made tangible / visible / audible

We think of Grace as a Divine attribute, Gods grace bestowed as a gift becomes our ability

For a brief window in time Gods Grace becomes visible, audible and tangible

Verse 1 – The Grace of God which bestows Gods gift is undeserved and thus it is unconditional and it is not dependent upon the possession of wisdom

The gift and the wisdom / knowledge to utilise that gift are are distinct

Timothy had a gift given by the laying on of the hands of the elders but he had to study to show himself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed rightly dividing the Word of God.

cf. “Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.” (1 Tim 4:14)

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:15)

God gave the gift to Timothy

Timothy had to draw from the same resources in Grace which gave the gift, Timothy had to give himself to the gift (1 Tim 4:15)

Spiritual gift is not the same as spiritual exercise, spiritual preparedness, nor spiritual wisdom

The Grace which gives the gift is

The Grace which sustains the gift

So many have faltered here, having received Gods gift in grace and yet faltering to be sustained in grace in the use and exercise of that gift.

There would be few more gifted than Elijah – yet despairing and despondent in the wilderness of Horeb (1Kings19) – what a contrast with Carmel!

Samson – cut and compromised; the man who had put a city gate on his back could no longer break his own chains!

Gifts given in grace are sustained by grace

Who opened the door to the Devil?

Chp 10 – contact with the occult – corruption

Chp 11 – compromise over headship and lordship, the emphasis in this section is upon the Lords sovereignty over the exercise of the gifts, v3 “Jesus is the Lord.” v5 “same Lord”

Chp 12 – confusion

The same pattern is easily repeated

Corruption followed by compromise

 

v7 “the manifestation of the Spirit”

Has anyone ever seen God?

“no one has seen God at any time, the only begotten who is in the bosom of the father, he has declared Him.” (John 1:18)

And yet some did see the revelation of God in the person of Jesus Christ:

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1 Tim3:16)

‘manifest’: ‘phanero’ – verb

What of the Spirit of God?

Has anyone ever seen the Spirit of God?

cf. 1 Corinthians 12:7 “the manifestation of the Spirit…”

‘manifestation’ : phanerosis (noun)

This unity through diversity is the manifestation of the Spirit of God, just as Christ was the manifestation of God.
