I WAS ALONE IN THE DARKNESS

Messiah Yeshua ( JESUS ) Is Lord, And My Personal Savior ;
I Was Lost And Undone, And In Him I Found Favor.
I Wondered In Sin, And Consumed By My Pride;
Alone In The Darkness, And With Nowhere To Hide.
The Spirit Of God, Saw A Death In My Spirit,
And I Cried Out To Jesus; So All Heaven Could Hear It.
I Was So Frightened; For My Life Was In Pain;
He Had Died For My Sins; For The Life I Could Gain.
I Was Under Conviction, And My World Lacked Of Peace,
And I Asked For Forgiveness, ,And Was Seeking Release.
On My Knees I Was Praying, And My Eyes Filled With Tears;
Could He Come To My Rescue; After All Of There Years?
I Long For Your Love; As My World Is Undone;
Will The Father In Heaven, Send To Me His Dear Son?
Lord Jesus I’m Asking; Please Come Into My Heart,
And Please Give Me Your Love; From This Day That Did Start.
You Went To The Cross; For My Sins You Did Die;
I Should Have Gone There In Judgement; To Be Crucified.
You Did Take My Own Guilt, And You Paid For My Sin;
But You Then Took My Place; On This Day I’ll Begin.
To Praise You Each Day; For You’ve Given Me Life;
You Shed Your Own Blood, And Removed All My Strife.
Thank You Lord Jesus, For Saving My Soul;
You Are Now My Own Master; In My Life To Control.

Garrison and Guard Our Hearts with These Truths

These verses in I Thessalonians Chapter 4 take us into areas where each of has to visit at some time – areas of life and death and bereavement and grief and sadness

But in Verse 14 we learn that death does not have the last word. Jesus Christ has!

Jesus who died and rose again is one of the central themes of Paul’s preaching and teaching and writing.

It was central to Peter’s preaching too, and it must remain central today.

Verse 15 – The Lord revealed it to Paul. Jesus is still revealing truths to men. He says it all here with such assurance.

Verse 16 – Paul goes on to speak about that day when Jesus Christ will return.

The Lord Himself will come down and there will be a shout, and there will be the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.

Do you see how important it is to be ‘in Christ’?

Verse 17 – Then those who are alive will be caught up with them.

“Caught up” indicates that there will be a sudden swoop and of such a force which cannot be resisted.

On that day, nothing will be able to hold me or tie me to this earth. This may sound so fantastic that it is beyond belief – but it will happen.

Some believers will never die. There will be a meeting with Christ in the air, because no auditorium on earth will be large enough to hold everyone who will be present.

This is what is popularly called the Rapture. Rapture has that sense and meaning of ‘being seized’ – to plunder – a thing retained with an eager grasp – or – eagerly claimed and conspicuously exercised – to take away by force!

We shall be with Him and with His. We shall be caught up in a similar manner as he was caught up in Acts Chapter 1. How else are we going to get up into the air?

God will accomplish this at the correct time – and we will be away from all pain – sorrow – tragedy – suffering – fear – sin – and away from all this for ever.

This is the next great world event – an everlasting indestructible body – the details of which we are not given.

Jesus was raised with a new body – the first of its kind – and the only one of its kind in the whole universe. It is not like the body of the raised widow of Nain’s son – or that of the resurrected Lazarus – these were mortal bodies which would die again - and which did die again.

Verse 18 – Encourage or comfort or fortify one another with these words.

With this knowledge from the Scriptures, our aim now is to get on with living for Jesus Christ.

Earthly words at such a time are weak and pathetic and that is why we are to speak divine words. Let this inspire your heart and increase your faith in Christ and his word.

This is one of the central doctrines of our Christian Faith. There are some 300 references to this in the New Testament. There are also some 300 references to the Cross.

There is not a word here about those who fall asleep outside of Christ.

Our faith looks back to the Cross, and our hope looks forward to His Coming, and we live in love right in the middle of these two events.

Death is like an anaesthetic which God uses to put us to sleep, while He changes our mortal bodies into immortal.

Garrison and guard your heart with these truths.

“Lord our God – we thank You for revealing the wonder of these truths – we thank You that when we need to know we can know – and we trust you totally for these matters that as yet we do not know. We thank you for such a complete and comprehensive and satisfying faith – all available to us through the grace and mercy and love of Jesus, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.”

Experience and Understand the Significance of Pentecost

What happened at Pentecost, and how is this so highly relevant to the Church of Jesus Christ today?

Why does this matter? It is much more important than many realise.

These apostles and disciples were gathered together in one place. They were in the Temple in Jerusalem, because when we read the record and account given to us by Dr Luke, no one moved until the apostles arose and Peter spoke and explained the significance of what had just taken place.

They were gathered together in one place, at the one time, and they were united. Someone had organised it and all were present and Jesus Christ blessed that gathering.

They knew and understood something of the fundamentals and basics of discipleship from the very beginning. Over these past years I have met very few people who have understood the basics of discipleship.

Read the account which is given us in Acts Chapter 2. Whenever someone reads the Word of God and opens himself, or herself, to the Word of God, our living loving gracious God is so willing and eager to bless and reward.

Be open to God’s Word and to receive and embrace what He reveals to you.

We read of the blowing of a wind, and tongues of fire resting on each of the one hundred and twenty heads of the apostles and disciples, and there would be as many as fifty thousand people present on this important occasion. It was a Jewish festival and the Temple courts would be crowded. We read about that a few sentences later.

They are all filled with the Holy Spirit and each speaks in tongues – or praises God in a language they had never learned. I have enjoyed this manifestation of the Holy Spirit for over fifty years and it has been such an edifying and encouraging spiritual ability.

Jesus had promised to send the Comforter, or the One who comes alongside to help, and that is exactly what happens on this occasion – although there is also an anointing of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit fills these disciples of Jesus and they overflow at the mouth. We overflow at the mouth too, if we are angry, or in love, or filled with the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the One who anoints and guides and directs and leads and he anoints and empowers and does so much more.

This is God the Holy Spirit. These one hundred and twenty apostles and disciples of Jesus Christ are having an encounter with Almighty God.

When this happens to day, we have an encounter with Almighty God and do we all not so need that once again?

These disciples are changed. These men and women are totally transformed – and notice that Mary, the mother of Jesus, is present there in that congregation.

Yes, people are ridiculed and mocked and laughed at, because the bewildered onlookers do not understand the significance of what is taking place – verse 13.

Jesus Christ is birthing and launching His glorious Church!

Dear Peter, who had caused so much upset, arises and explains – and explains so fully and adequately. This is what had been prophesied. What Joel said would happen is happening and this experience of the Holy Spirit continues to be experienced and will do so until Jesus Christ comes again.

The Helper was bringing Hope. We so need Hope in our troubled world today – and in the compromising Church.

If you are looking for a deeper spirituality and for inspiration that will never depart from you, this is where it is to be found and discovered and enjoyed – but remember it is for service and ministry!

“Our loving heavenly Father – we give thanks for every good and perfect gift. At this time we give thanks for the experience and significance of what happened at Pentecost – and we thank you risen and ascended Jesus, that you continue to pour out the Holy Spirit today upon men and women. Anoint us – empower us – so that we may serve. Amen”

Do You Want To Know How Big Our Gracious God Is?

As the people of Israel return from exile and imprisonment in Babylon, God sees a little lamb who cannot walk – and who needs to be carried.
It is all there in Isaiah Chapter 40.

God lifts those who are weak, but wanting to go back to Jerusalem - and He carries them close to His heart. Verse 11.

He sees those who are with young - ewes with lambs - and leads them gently.

Such tender personal intervention – out of where you are, to where Almighty God wants you to be.

When Jesus Christ performed these miracles, in the Gospels, he was not seeking to impress the onlookers or to prove his claims. He did them because he could not bear to see the suffering of those around him! That poor widow of Nain – the l***r struck down by disease – “I will – be thou clean!” The hungry crowds – blind Bartimaeus begging in Jericho - and that sick woman who had spent all her money seeking a cure – the scars and pains and marks of sin. The heart of God was more than touched.

“Jesus Thou art all compassion – pure unbounded love Thou art” – we must never sing these words unthinkingly!

Jesus keeps coming to men and women – “My friend you cannot carry that load yourself”.

He sees the weight and heaviness of the burden – let me carry it for you – that is the Gospel!

And – when nobody wants you – GOD wants you.

He wanted His people back in Jerusalem – He wants you and me.

That is the God we come to. Let this Word comfort you - let these truths put strength in your heart and mind and body, for what lies ahead.

Verse 12. Isaiah sees a big God - and this big God is able to deal with the troubles of His people. God has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand.

Do you want to know how big God is?

I will tell you, Isaiah says - consider the width of space - the millions and millions of miles - but that is the distance between His thumb and little finger.

Is this just poetry - picture language?

Well it is said in the same breath as Zion and Judah and Jerusalem - and some of us have walked in these real places. These are NOT pictures – they are much more than pictures.

This Saviour Shepherd is the Creator GOD – Creator and Redeemer.

He weighed out the mountains in a little pair of hand scales.

Or think of His Mind - we cannot understand the Spirit of the Lord - we are NOT His teacher - we cannot counsel Him as to how to do things.

Verse 15. The nations are like a drop in a bucket - the nations are regarded as dust on the scales – China – America – United Kingdom – Scotland.

Now - note - not his precious people, ISRAEL - nor those who have been bought with the blood of Jesus Christ.

Those who belong to God through Jesus Christ are precious - and our strong tender God cares and shepherds and leads and guides us - as if He had nothing else to do in the whole universe.

Much of this passage is fulfilled in the ministry of John the baptiser and Jesus held John in high regard.

John’s ministry was a vital ministry – there is another vital lesson here – Herod refused to pay attention to John and had him beheaded. The lesson is – if you will not listen to John, it is hard to hear Jesus!

We must never compromise the preaching of the Word of God. When the message is diluted, people preach – Faith without Repentance – and Discipleship without Cost.

This passage shows us how much we mean to God. Know how much you mean to God.

These verses require to be read more often than during ‘The season of Advent’.

One year it will be the final Advent!

“Almighty God – we worship our great and gracious and merciful God. We give thanks for the times and occasions when You have drawn so close and so near. Speak to us from Your Holy Word. Speak to us, risen and living and compassionate Christ. Loving Shepherd we open our hearts and lives to the promptings and nudging of the Holy Spirit. Amen”

“The essence of Christianity is not what we do for God, but what God does for us. It is not about ceremonies and outward deeds. It is about God’s free-gift that we receive by faith due to grace.”

“He has done it all, from beginning to end. He chose us from eternity past in His unconditional election. He sent His eternal Son to die for His elect ones, and purchase us for salvation. The Father and the Son sent the Holy Spirit to draw us to the Savior by regenerating us, giving us faith, bring us to Him, and sanctifying us. Salvation is all of God.”

Our Story

Believers Chapel is a non-denominational, evangelical Christian Church in Dallas, Texas. We are committed to the Historical Evangelical Christian Faith, Sovereign Grace and Premillennialism.

Since our inception, we have sought to proclaim God's truths, love God's people, and be organized on the principles of the New Testament church. Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ." Whether you are a professing Christian or merely curious about faith, we invite you to come and hear the teaching of God's Word.

Our goal is profitable teaching, reverent worship, and warm fellowship. The Chapel has a plurality of elders and encourages all of its members to exercise their spiritual gifts for the work of the ministry. The assembly meets weekly for the Ministry of the Word, Sunday School, and the Lord's Supper. We have an excellent nursery, Footsteps of Faith program for elementary-aged children, an active Youth Group and Young Adults Ministry. Visit www.believerschapeldallas.org for information on all of our services, programs, as well as an extensive collection of nearly 50 years of preaching from our gifted teachers. Our associated website, www.sljinstitute.net is dedicated solely to the ministry of Dr. S Lewis Johnson and contains transcripts as well as audio, for over 1,500 messages by the late Dr. Johnson.
