Evangel Bible Church of Silicon Valley
We've been in Milpitas since 2009. We are a community of sinners saved by grace and radically transformed by the good news (evangel) of Jesus Christ. We are singles, marrieds, families, etc. who seek for our children, our neighbors, our coworkers, and all others to come to know our dear Lord and Savior. Come and join us on a Sunday to hear about Jesus Christ who forgives sinners and gives them eternal life and calls them to be His disciples.
What must one know to be saved? Some wish to answer this with a minimalistic approach to salvation. But the Scriptures’ answer isn’t minimalistic. Instead, the knowledge of salvation is to truly know God as He revealed Himself in His incarnate Son as recorded for us in Scripture. And God gave this in a way that even children can understand. Listen to find out.
Jesus has the power to raise the dead. But what will happen thereafter? Jesus has an explanation for the afterlife, and in this verse, Jesus begins to unfold the truth about eternal life: who will have it, and how they will possess it even in this life? He also begins to explain judgment as to who will escape it.
Death is irreversible, except that God can do the impossible. God can raise the dead, and Jesus claims that He has this divine authority to give life to the dead. To this, He also adds He has the authority—from the Father—to render judgment upon all men. These are the greater works that demonstrate His divine equality with the Father.
Even in the face of strong opposition, Jesus does not soften His claim to divine equality. He boldly asserts He is in fact equal to the Father. The Lord claims from His own divine and inherent authority that He, as God the Son, fully mirrors God the Father so that men might in Him see and know the invisible God.
Who is the person whose birth we celebrate? Matthew presents Jesus as the Messiah whom God promised, whose genealogy traces back to King David and Abraham, who is conceived of a virgin, who is divine, who saves us from our sins.
Jesus made His divinity known in an unmistakable way. He is God as evidenced in His deeds. He does what God does because He has divine prerogatives as God the Son. However, the Pharisees are blind to this reality. Steeped in their own man-made religion, they pay no attention to the promises of God that His Messiah, the Son of God and the Son of Man, the Savior would come into this world. Their godless response is the intent to kill.
God's grace is further seen in the revelation of His will to His people, who are God’s own possession to the praise of His glory.
Among the spiritual blessings from God are adoption as son of God and abundant grace, which Paul details in this passage.
Paul greets the brethren in Ephesus and speaks about the spiritual blessings from God, including divine election.
Paul expects benefit and obedience from Philemon. He then ends his letter with hope for a future visit and greetings to the recipients of the letter.
Paul describes Onesimus as a spiritual asset and requests Philemon treat him as a partner as he would Paul. Paul even models this partnership by offering repayment of the debt Onesimus owed.
Paul appeals to Philemon regarding Onesimus, Philemon’s runaway slave whom Paul was sending back to his master.
Money. Youth. Power. The rich young ruler had these things. But there was something he didn’t have. Let’s find out what that was AND how Jesus challenged him about it.
Is there anything or anyone as bright as the sun? Or, even brighter? Jesus was! How did this happen? Why did this happen? Let’s find out!
Being a disciple of Jesus may not always be easy. Why? Let’s find out!
The disciples in the boat struggle against waves and wind. In the middle of the night, Jesus comes to the disciples by walking on the sea. The disciples respond to this awesome miracle by worshipping Jesus and saying a profound truth: "You are certainly God's Son."
Jesus, as a growing twelve year old boy, shows His commitment to doing the will of His heavenly Father.
When baby Jesus was brought to the temple, people recognized that this baby wasn’t just any other baby. This baby was the Savior. They praised God for the Savior who will save all people (Jews and Gentiles).
What was such good news that the hosts of heaven would sing in praise to God? It’s the birth of the Savior!
When the crowds drew near, Jesus lets His disciples witness a miracle of multiplying bread, firsthand. With just 5 loaves of bread and two fish, Jesus feeds 5,000 people! This should tell us that the Father sent Jesus.
Men are powerless when it comes to sickness or death, but Jesus has power over both. In fact, Jesus can raise a person from the dead as if they were merely asleep because He is God!
What Jesus did shows that He has authority over both things that we can see and things that we can’t see. He is God!
