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.
As the Lord speaks of his one fake disciple, Judas, he uses the word Devil to describe him. What does the Lord believe about the Devil? What is he? Is he a metaphor, a caricature, a make-believe character, or is he a real being? In this excursus on demonology, we see what Jesus and the whole Bible says about the Devil, and what this means for us today.
John gives us a historical account of the life of Christ and this includes the description of His betrayer, Judas Iscariot. He is “the son of Simon Iscariot.” John shows us that Judas was a real historical person. He is the real human being who betrayed another real human being (the God-man Jesus Christ). We take an excursus in this sermon to bolster the fact that Scripture records historical truth and what this means for our lives.
Sometimes people who once walked with the Lord fall away. Surprisingly, we see an example of this even among the Lord’s disciples. But Jesus is unfazed by His defectors. Even when it comes to the disciples who remain with Him, the Lord reveals that His confidence is in the sovereign plan of God, because salvation is the demonstration of the sovereign power of God.
Many of the Lord’s disciples grumbled at His claim to be the Son of God from heaven. As the Lord explains, some of these were unbelievers, and they would not believe even if they were to see Him ascend back into heaven. Unbelief is man’s deplorable condition because he is spiritually dead. But the Spirit regenerates those whom the Father has chosen, so that they believe and enter into life.
Jesus explains five more truths about those who are saved.: 1) the saved have a spiritual life, literally, from conversion to eternity; 2) the saved will physically rise from the dead; 3) the saved are spiritually satisfied in Christ; 4) the saved are yielded to Christ; and 5) the saved depend on Christ for their spiritual life.
Jesus is the Son of God incarnate from heaven. The Lord continues to affirm this with the metaphor of eating (faith) and bread (Himself). He who has eternal life believes in Jesus, who is truly human, flesh and blood, the incarnation of the Son of God from heaven. Eternal life is a gift to all who trust and believe in this person of Jesus Christ.
Paul calls believers to separate themselves from sin and to live as children of light (holy people) in the Lord.
Paul once again returns to the issue of immorality to ensure that none of it seeps into the community of saints. And the first place where this must be checked is our speech. Our lives are to be holy, and so our speech must be holy.
Paul addresses three more areas of our community life: words, kindness and love.
Having reminded us of our clean break with the old man, Paul returns to the topic of community life, exhorting us toward godliness in the areas of honesty, anger and generosity.
Paul testifies of what Christ taught us about conversion: a clean break from the former life and an adoption of the new, which involves a continual renewal of the mind.
Paul explains the purpose of ministry: maturity of the church unto the fulness of Christ that comes through the contribution of every member.

What’s the most important book you have ever seen or read? How can you tell it’s important? Today, we will learn about an important book that God showed the Apostle John.

Have you ever been on a boat in the open sea? How was the weather? Imagine… lots of rain and wind… dangerous weather. Do you think you could make it out of this big storm? Well, Paul did but not by his doing. God brought him out of the storm and to Rome for a very important reason. Let’s find out how and why!
