When Zion is Suffering!

Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 05 December 2016

The health of a church or even a region of churches is never static. That is, spiritual health can wax and wane. Churches go through periods of revival and also periods of coldness. When we survey the landscape of our church and the trend is to bury more than we baptize, or to close more churches than we constitute, it should cause us to stop and assess our behavior. Have we grown cold? Are we distracted? As the prophet Haggai exhorted, we should "consider our ways!" 

In this broadcast, Pastor Winslett considers spiritual indifference and the chastening which occurs as a result, and also the first steps towards revival.

The Benefits of the True Gospel

Created on 28 November 2016

The gospel message is good news, even the best news a sin-sick sinner could hear! As cold waters refresh a thirsting man, so does the good news of the finished work of Christ refresh the souls of those who hear and believe it. What happens when one ingests polluted water? Their body is sickly. Yet one who drinks pure water healthy. This serves as an excellent comparison to the benefits of the gospel message! The true gospel, is one which makes the soul fat.

Reconciling Grace and Works

Created on 21 November 2016

Concerning a man's eternal salvation, there are three basic camps into which people generally fall: 1) Salvation by grace; 2) Salvation by grace and works; and 3) Salvation by works. While opinions about this crucial subject are about as vast as the number of Christian denominations, the Bible present a singular message. Salvation is by the grace of God! 

This being said, how does one reconcile this truth with passages which seem to teach that salvation is by human choice or works? We answer this question in today's broadcast.

God's "Concern"

We all have our obsessions. Some of us are very consumed with politics. Others with sports. Then there is recreation or career empire-building. But are these wordly concerns what God Almighty considers to be the most important issues for disciples to invest their time in? Not likely. From the scriptures, Pastor Winslett exhorts us to keep in mind the admonition to "seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness," reminding us that God's Kingdom is not of this world.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you believe the Bible? There are billions of the people in the world, most belonging to many different religions. Each religion has its own doctrine, practice, and manuscripts. And yet, we trust this one volume to teach us not only the identity of God Himself, but also our own origin and deliverance from this evil world. So this presents the question, why the Bible? 

In this broadcast, Pastor Winslett shares five reasons why we trust this book, even to the point of being willing to suffer for adhering to its teachings.

It's common for people to ask "what is a Primitive Baptist?" Good question! In short, a Primitive Baptist is a Christian who endeavors to believe the original teachings of the primitive church while observing the practices of the first century believers.

Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ? "Sure," you reply! "Why, I am a church member and I believe." In today's broadcast, we learn from John 8 that being a disciple actually involves more than merely believing in Jesus, but learning and obeying His word on a daily basis. While sonship (being born of God) is by God through free grace alone, discipleship is a daily activity.

Finding Grace in Strange Places

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 29 August 2016

It's amazing to note that in Jesus' day, He often condemned the religious elite (people assumed to be holy) and found friendship with the publicans and sinners (people assumed to be unholy). In today's broadcast, we look through scripture at a few examples in which God's grace is found in unusual places. Who would expect to find a grace changed person working as a harlot in Jericho? Few, for sure. And yet there is Rahab, who justified herself (declared herself just) by receiving the Israelite spies. Then there is the thief on the cross. Yet again, there is the sinful woman of the city who washed Jesus' feet with her tears. 

As Paul rightly said, Jesus came into the world to save sinner. While the Pharisees condemned Jesus for this attribute, a sensible sinner finds great peace in their accusation that Jesus is the friend of sinners.

Spiritual Warfare

Warfare is severe! And yet, that's one of the metaphors the Apostle Paul used to describe discipleship. However, unlike physical combat, this is a battle of information and the battleground is the hearts and minds of men. 

Could you imagine a soldier being sent to combat while being ignorant of the fact that he was actually in a war? What about a soldier being sent to war unarmed? That sounds ridiculous, but that's exactly how many believers in our age approach discipleship. Want to arm yourself? Listen to today's program.

In today's broadcast, Pastor Winslett considers a very elementary passage of scripture found in Paul's epistle to the Galatian churches, Galatians 5:22, in which Paul teaches us the fruit of being born of the Spirit. The lesson here is two fold: We learn that for a person to bear this fruit in his life, he must be born of the Spirit. But also, we are exhorted to "walk in the Spirit," actively living out the character attributes in our day to day lives.

When Iniquity Abounds

Created on 20 June 2016

Does it seem to you that anger and violence are increasing in our culture? Why do you think this is the case? Certainly theories are both plentiful and various.

In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus made a profound statement regarding a direct correlation between iniquity and love, specifically when iniquity abounds, the love of many shall wax cold. As a rule, when iniquity abounds, brotherly love grows faint in a society. So then, we learn that the solution isn't the mere feigning of a loving attitude, but a sincere repentance towards God accompanied by a turning from sinfulness.

Answering the Skeptics: Homosexuality and the Old Testament Law

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 13 June 2016

Scripture presents a very clear set of guidelines on what constitutes marriage as well as what God has defined as sexually immoral. Sometimes in defending the Biblical pattern of marriage, well-meaning Christians use the prohibition on homosexual behavior in Leviticus as their "proof text" against such a lifestyle. However, relying solely upon this text presents a serious problem when confronted by skeptics: Leviticus also prohibits the eating of creatures such as shrimp or catfish. The skeptic then condemns the Christian for embracing one law and ignoring another. How does the believer answer this criticism? 

In this broadcast, pastor Winslett explains the timeless principles of God regarding marriage and intimacy, while placing such passages in Leviticus in the overall message of scripture.

In our culture, we don't necessarily work out in a hot field all day. Rather, we tend to hyperextend ourselves with busy schedules, hurrying from one event to the next, leaving ourselves frazzled ad gasping for breath.

Saved from What?

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 16 May 2016

Words have meanings. Sometimes, a single word can have many definitions. Other times, one word can be used in many different contexts. This is true for our every day speech, but it's also true regarding the language of the Bible. Determining the application of a term is a practice called "rightly dividing the word of truth." When rightly dividing, the reader takes the definition, context, and overall theology of the Bible into consideration to determine the author's original intent. Since scripture is of no private interpretation, it is the disciple's responsibility to seek the original message in a passage.

One might be puzzled or even alarmed at the premise of "rightly diving," but this practice is commonly engaged in by theologians and scholars. For example, preachers often distinguish between the Divinity of Christ and the Humanity of Christ. Also, we recognize the different between our eternal sanctification through God and a practical sanctification through obedience and discipline. Further, it is understood that God, for Christ's sake, forgave our sins once and for all at the cross, yet we ask for forgiveness in a parental sense every time we pray. 

In this broadcast, Pastor Winslett considers the biblical usage of the word "save." When most believers in our culture come across the word save in the Bible, their first assumption is that the word is describing regeneration (the new birth). However, as with many other words, the term save is used in reference to other phases of our eternal salvation (redemption, glorification) and also deliverance from various forms of ruin in our daily lives (enemies, sickness, sinful behavior, error, etc).

Do you struggle with guilt over the sins and mistakes of your past? Do you let this guilt hinder your service to God, feeling unworthy to begin your personal ministry? If you answered yes, you really should take the time to listen to the thoughts presented in this week's radio program as we consider how the imputed righteousness of Christ was sufficient enough to enable a persecutor, Saul of Tarsus, to become the writer of much of the New Testament books and also the Apostle to the Gentiles. Understanding the sufficiency of Christ on your behalf truly sets you free from the bondage of personal guilt.

Righteousness Exalteth a Nation

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 21 March 2016

Proverbs 14:34 says "righteousness exalteth a nation." This means a country whose citizenship, on average, pursues a godly, righteous standard of living will experience great peace and blessings as a derivative of their actions. 

In recent weeks, we've seen the hostility between polarized fringes of the American population escalate to levels of mob violence. In some cases, demonstrations and protests have approached the level of all out anarchy. As the ministry of the gospel, it is our responsibility to declare God's standard, even in such cases as this. 

The first principle Pastor Winslett shares in this broadcast, is that the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God (James 1). Actions carried out in anger are usually regretted later. Secondly, as often observed by the framers of the United States, only a morally upright people can enjoy lasting liberty. Since public violence is immoral and sinful, we all stand at risk of losing our personal freedom when a substantial number of our citizenship engages in riotous behavior. And lastly, as believers in Christ, we must interceded to God in fervent in prayer for our elected officials.

Accountability to God

Last week on Words of Grace, we considered several attributes of God, especially His position as Creator, Lord, and Judge over all men. Today we revisit this topic as we study the fact that all men are accountable to God for their actions. 

Without God's forgiveness for our sins, we would most certainly be cast into the Lake of Fire for eternity. What was the price paid for this forgiveness? His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and God the Father has forgiven us unconditionally on the basis of His Son's redemptive work. But even after salvation, as children to a parent, we ought to ask God to forgive us of our sins each day. When we do, He hears, and spares His chastening rod.

Prior to being called Primitive Baptists or even just Baptist, our forefathers were deemed "anabaptist" by the mainstream of the day for their practice of "rebaptizing" converts who had been sprinkled, rather than immersed in water by a preacher. They felt very strongly, as do we, that baptism was to be meet certain qualifications.

A phrase Jesus commonly used in His public ministry was "he that hath an ear, let him hear." This often overlooked statement actually contains great truth! For one, unless a man has been given "spiritual ears" he cannot hear the preaching of the cross on a spiritual level. But also, this phrase clearly demonstrates the fact that there are men who lack spiritual hearing. 

This ought to cause us to stop and ponder how one comes into possession of these spiritual ears! Do you know how? Listen to learn.

Were you asked to list the proper, Biblical order of salvation, how you would you respond? I suppose that answer would vary depending on the background of the person asked. Thankfully, God actually provided us with a passage of scripture listing each distinct step in salvation. Guess what? The entire "process" was all of God! 

Romans 8:29-30 teaches us the comforting fact that God foreknew, predestinated, called, justified, and will glorify us. From before the foundation of the world to beyond this world into eternity, God has purposed everything necessary and required to deliver us to Himself. As David said, our salvation is "ordered in all things and sure."

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 Timothy 3:16

This time of year, folks love to think on the baby in a manger. But we should remember just who that baby was: God manifest in the flesh! Further, He is no longer a babe in a manger, but a reigning King and Lord of all. In this broadcast, we focus on the divine incarnation of the Son of God.

This time of year is one in which music is very much a part of our lives. But, have you ever stopped to consider how great a blessing music is to mankind? From hymns and spiritual songs to Handel's Messiah, music has a way of accessing us on an emotion and even spiritual level. One can be "filled with the Spirit" through singing "spiritual songs." Of course, this ability of music also presents certain dangers, should we choose to listen to the wrong type of music. 

In this broadcast, we consider the Biblical history of music and conclude with its place in the church today.
