August 1, 2015 | #1531—Lamenting Leads to Light, Part 1

Message—Lamenting Leads to Light, Part 1

“No one likes to mourn, no one likes to grieve, it’s sadness… because it usually means they’ve lost something or someone important. Lamenting is an inevitable part of one’s life, at some point we all mourn. I’m reminded of what Chuck Swindoll said in his book Starting Over, “The hardest thing about life is that it’s so daily.”

Lamenting is such a part of life that the Scriptures have an entire book dedicated to it called Lamentations, where the Prophet Jeremiah mourns over the loss of something near and dear to his heart, the city of Jerusalem.”

Message Transcript

AskFOI— Does God still show distinction between Jewish people and non-Jewish people, and is one better than the other? (@12:41)

Chris examines Galatians 3:28-29, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”, and shows that while we are one in Christ, God still sees a distinction as it relates to our callings.

Listen to this segment @ 12:41.

Apples of Gold–”With an Arab Family in Bethlehem” (@19:10)

“One of the men said, “We all respect you for what you believe, but we cannot agree with one thing. This Isa (Yeshua) was a prophet, but Muhammad was the greatest of all prophets.”

“I showed them from the Scriptures that the Lord Jesus Christ was the one promised in the Old Testament. I explained that the New Testament tells us how He brought love into the world, in contrast with the Qur’an, which says in Sura 190, “Hate your enemy, kill him wherever you find him.” They looked at each other perplexed and could not answer me. I then read John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
