Jesus' final five days leading to Calvary - Tuesday: His Authority is Questioned (Matthew 21:23 - 23:39)

One the next day, Jesus returned from Bethany (where He spent the night) and went back to the temple. While Jesus was teaching the chief priests and the elders confronted Him and questioned His authority, "By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” Jesus answered them by appealing to their intellect in asking His question, “The baptism of John was from what source, from heaven or from men?” They realized however they answered Jesus would discredit themselves.

Consider Jesus' complete response to them in the verses that followed. He did not go back and forth with these sinful religious leaders nor did He lord His authority over them. He spoke in parables to reveal Himself and what His mission would accomplish. He confronted them on their sinful ways. As Jesus pointed out, looking 'religious' on the outside does not reveal who one really is on the inside.

Jesus did not come to redeem the self-righteous but lost sinners who would come to Him by faith. He came to seek and save those who are lost.

Jesus' final five days leading to Calvary - Monday: The Cleansing of the Temple

When Jesus entered the temple in Jerusalem, what He found was not worship or prayer. People traveled from near and far for the Passover and it was convenient to purchase their sacrificial animals when they got there. This practice of profiting from the sale of animals and money changing had not only become corrupt but what was worst was that it was taking place inside the temple. Jesus' actions against the money changers and those buying and selling in the temple was righteous indignation. As he took action against them, Jesus quoted Isaiah 56:7, "My house shall be called a house of prayer." Before He left the temple, Jesus healed the blind and lame who came to Him in His house.

Jesus' reference to Isaiah 56:7 pointed to a future time when the Gentiles would be true worshipers in the community of worship with faithful Israel (Isaiah 56:3-8). The full quotation of Isaiah 56:7 is: “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations”

Join us on Facebook Live tomorrow, March 29, at 11:00 for week 2 of our 'In Home Service'. Shelter-in-Place is not a shelter from God. We may not be able to go to a building but the church goes on. God is omnipresent; He will never be confined to a building. Nothing can stop our worship!

Here is a summary of Pastor Alexander's sermon, Philosophies, Fables and Foolishness: Make the Main Thing the Main Thing (Colossians 2:16-23:

Jesus completes us!

As Christians, the totality of our existence is firmly grounded and rooted in Jesus Christ. In Him, we have been set free from the legalistic stronghold of the world. We will not be pulled into the false ideologies of man-made wisdom that produces man-made results which are empty of any substance. There are no rules to govern us in our spiritual walk aside from what we have been given through the Word of God. We are totally free in Jesus!

In Paul's letter to the Christians at Colossae he addressed the problem of them being attacked/invaded by false teaching. As Paul wrote, we are not to be concerned with man-made legalistic ordinances and restrictions in our worship. Looking 'spiritual' is one thing; living a life that is wholly acceptable to God through Jesus Christ is something else.

Points to consider:
-What is in Him controls our actions (vv. 16, 17)
-What is not of Him should have no control over us (vv. 18-22)
-What is necessary for us is found only through Him (v. 23)

A message from the pastor:

On Thursday, March 19, Governor Abbott issued an Executive Order for the state of Texas that went into effect at midnight, March 20. The executive order calls for a prohibition of gathering of 10 or more people. Although churches are exempt from the executive order because of freedom of religion, the decisions of Dallas County and the city of Dallas do apply to churches (no community gathering of 50 or more people). Based on the governor's executive order, the local requirements and my responsibility and desire to ensure the health and safety of the members and visitors of our church, we will not hold services at Greater Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, March 22 or Sunday, March 29. Ministry meetings, including prayer, bible study and choir rehearsals will also be cancelled during this two week period, beginning tomorrow, March 21.

We are planning on having worship service on Sunday, March 22, via Facebook Live and conference call (for those without social media capabilities). We are working on the logistics right now; the schedule will be posted and communicated on or before noon tomorrow, March 21. Stay tuned...

Merry Christmas to our church family and friends! May God continue to shower His blessings on you throughout the holiday season. -Pastor Lionell and Sherva Alexander

The Pastor's Letter to the Women of GMOBC for Women's Day 2014

The theme for today’s program, Women of Faith: From Generation to Generation, is one that I look forward to witnessing become a living theme within the Greater Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church over the next year. The Mission auxiliaries of this church have a rich history. I fondly remember those who faithfully served in Mission #1, Mission #2 and the Junior Mission in years past. Today’s program signifies the passing of the baton among the leadership of the women of Greater Mount Olive.

This year’s program represents the inauguration of the Women’s Fellowship of the Greater Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church. The foundation of the Women’s Fellowship will be built on the exhortations of Paul to the generations of the women of the church at Crete, as recorded in Titus 2:3-5. If ‘today’s’ Christian women are serving as living examples of how to present oneself in the world as well as in the church and as mentors and teachers of Godly character and service, then the next generation will have the foundational tools to move forward as responsible women, wives and mothers serving God in all facets of life and the church.

Yesterday’s auxiliaries are the building blocks to today’s Fellowship ministries. The ministries within the Fellowship will consist of women of all ages working, joint and severally, toward the common goal of being Kingdom Servants in character and service to God. While the names may be changing from auxiliaries to ministries, the objectives are the same: women serving God through Bible study, evangelistic activities and fellowship.

Again, I enthusiastically look forward to seeing what the Women’s Fellowship will become as a result of the foundational examples and teaching of the Mission Auxiliaries. Thank you, women of Greater Mount Olive, for what you have done, what you are doing, and, by God’s blessings, what you will do as Women of Faith: From Generation to Generation.

Thank you,

Pastor Lionell A. Alexander

[03/24/14]   Today's message: 'What About Me?' -Job 1:1-22

There was a man in the land of Uz named Job. Job was a very wealthy man, married, with 7 sons and 3 daughters. His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and Job was the greatest of all the men of the east. One day the sons of God were presenting themselves to God and Satan was among them. When God asked Satan where he was coming from, Satan answered that he was roaming the earth and walking around on it. What Satan was doing was looking for those he could lead in a life of sin, a life that did not include a relationship with God. God asked Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” Satan told God that if the hedge of protection was removed from Job and He put His hands on all that Job had that Job would surely curse God. Then the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD. Satan then caused Job to lose his livestock, his possessions, his servants and his children. But Job DID NOT curse God. In fact, in his time of grief he worshipped God! Job said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.” Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.

As you contemplate on all that God has blessed you with and all He has done for you, will you praise Him at all times? In fact, if God had the very conversation with Satan today and said, "Have you considered my servant (your name)?", would you be worthy of such a test as Job? Is your praise limited to your possessions or your standing in life or will you worship God at all times, in all circumstances? When you consider what Job endured because of his faith and relationship with God, ask yourself "What about me? Am I worthy and willing to show Satan that I will praise God at all times?"
Verses to reflect on: John 10: 28; Romans 8:28; 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:2-4

[01/01/14]   This is the time of year where we RESOLVE to do the one thing or even several things we feel will make us look, feel, or be a better person. Along with your resolutions, I pray that 2014 is a year of spiritual growth for you. I encourage to you find a bible reading plan that appeals to you. One that fits your needs so that reading the Bible becomes a daily habit! In addition, find a daily or weekly devotion or inspirational reading to help keep you focused on what really matters in 2014.

I pray that 2014 will be a year that you know the immensely rewarding experience of reading God’s Word; that you grow closer to God and get to know Him better; that you spend precious time reading His Word. And lastly, I pray that you will resolve to make prayer and meditation an integral part of your life.

May God Bless You Immensely,
Rev. A.
