SERMON: The Trinity and You

adrian preaching trinity at jubilee

This is the video of the sermon I preached this morning followed by a full set of notes.AudioHow do you tend to think of God? A Force or Power? A remote ruler? An angry judge?But the Bible reveals that God is intensely personal and he is very interested in you. HE wants to know you.  Part of getting to know someone is getting to know about someone. It is not enough to merely learn about them, but it is a helpful and necessary start. We must know why we believe what we believe and … [Read more...]

Galatians to Revelation on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

I conclude my list of verses on the charismatic issue by sharing some verses from the rest of the New Testament. On Monday I will be blogging about something very different, God willing. If I have missed any important verses please do let me know. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8)Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are … [Read more...]

TOAM Session 5 Terry Virgo on God’s discipline of us (Hebrews 12)

Terry began by speaking about his own book, Spirit-Filled Church, having first made the point that there are also many books in the bookstore here that he recommends that are written by writers outside our movement.  Bob Roberts, Ed Stetzer, and many other names familiar to readers of the blog are represented here.Terry preached on Hebrews 12 once more. You can download the audio, or read my notes here:We saw yesterday what it means to get started in the race, and how to get rid of things … [Read more...]

TOAM Session 2 – Terry Virgo (Hebrews 12)

After another pumping time of worship, PJ was given the opportunity to share what has happened this past year. He explained that he has been told he is in remission from his cancer. It was an emotional moment as it was quite literally this time last year that we all heard of the diagnosis. He explained that he is currently feeling very well, and the only lasting effects are tiredness (he needs 10 hours sleep a night) and some damage to his leg after a DVT. He is praying for healing for that, … [Read more...]

TOAM: Session 1 Scott Marques on Courageous Faith (Hebrews 11)

So it begins! We started as always with worship. It was a wonderful time in the presence of God. There was a real rise in faith. The enthusiasm, especially as we sang “You Alone Can Rescue” was electric. How wonderful to worship with thousands of charismaniacs!Scott took us to Hebrews 11. You can listen to this talk or read my notes here. The common thread that is seen in every single one of the heroes of faith in this chapter is that they did courageous things for God.The faith they had … [Read more...]

A Bible is For Life, Not Just For Christmas

Christmas seems like it's just around the corner. In these times of financial pressure, surely we all feel the need to make good choices in our gifts this year and not be wasteful. A new Bible for a loved one (or dare I say for yourself?) is certainly an excellent investment. But what Bible? And what format? In this post I will look at a few examples, some of which I can recommend.At the top of my list would be the ESV Study Bible. The translation is essentially literal and as close to a … [Read more...]

THE ATONEMENT DEBATE – Steve Chalke Argues Against Penal Substitutionary Atonement

In his chapter in the recent book The Atonement Debate, Steve Chalke begins to argue against penal substitution (PSA). He starts in a surprising, and to me, a deeply concerning way. One of my major concerns about this whole debate is what a rejection of PSA does to our view of the Bible. The concept of God’s wrath is very prominent in the Bible, culminating in the famous dilemma of Romans 3 where Paul essentially asks how can God be both JUST and yet FORGIVE our sin. In the context of Romans, to … [Read more...]

SERMON – Back to the Word: Nehemiah 8

Last Sunday, I preached a sermon at Jubilee Church in our series on the book of Nehemiah. A video of it is now available to download. You can also download the mp3, listen to it right here, or read my notes below: “Let me tell you about a most wonderful experience I had early Monday morning, March 19, 2007, a little after six o’clock. God actually spoke to me. There is no doubt that it was God. I heard the words in my head just as clearly as when a memory of a conversation passes across your … [Read more...]

SERMON – A Song Of Hope – Psalm 121

On the 24th of August, I preached a sermon at Jubilee during our summer series on some famous psalms. I took Psalm 121, which served as a starting point for me to share some of the most important planks of my personal doctrinal framework—a framework that has sustained me through hard times.As blogging around here at least begins to return to normal—if there is such a thing at adrianwarnock.com—I thought I'd share both the audio to download and a condensed version of the message below. You can als … [Read more...]
