Bringing Tongues Of Fire From The Sparks Of Faith...

 

LESSON 11

THE GOSPEL 2

MATTHEW 1

By Rev. G. Evan Newmyer

 

INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 11

Matthew addresses himself to those who just came to the Lord, who are standing in the Doorway, as they are known metaphorically, the seed and root. Mark is the only one of the four who says his account is the "Beginning of the Gospel" (Mark 1:1). Therefore, we must move through Matthew to establish a foundation to know The Beginning Of The Gospel. Matthew encourages us to reach to the higher ground, yet warns us of certain elements which could cause us to stumble on our path. His warning is not for us to look about to see if there is a bad fish or tare near us, but to make the firm decision to continue to Believe in order to become the Good Fish in the Net and the Wheat in the Field.

LESSON 12

THE GOSPEL 3

MATTHEW 2

By Rev. G. Evan Newmyer


INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 12

We're half way through Matthew and we can see how the Foundation takes more time than one would think. Matthew is loaded with information and mysteries regarding the Mercy of God. It’s obvious we must have a grasp on the Mercy of God in order to appreciate the Grace of God.

The kingdom of heaven is Mercy based, the Kingdom of God is Grace based; therefore, Matthew is the basis for Mercy, the element brings us into the Ways of the Father. We want to remember how Matthew is the only writer who uses the phrase "kingdom of heaven". We are to be holy as our Father by granting Mercy as our Father, thus Mercy and Holiness relate; let us continue with Matthew's Account.

LESSON 13

THE GOSPEL 4

MARK

By Rev. G. Evan Newmyer

 

INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 13

 

Mark was a youth during the earthly ministry of Jesus, he was still a youth for a period of time after Pentecost. Mark's mother owned the house where the disciples gathered for their Pentecost experience; his uncle was Barnabas who was called to be an Apostle at the same time as Paul (Acts 13:1-3). Mark will not only be our example of the Blade, but his account is written to the Blade. In Matthew we found Mercy is our foundation, Mark will begin the path to Grace.

Mark, Matthew and Luke all have like events, but the Holy Ghost gives us different views of those events depending on our stage of growth. For those who have reached those areas of growth, it's more than a review, it's a time to consider and remember how we received. For those who have reached their Pentecost experience, Mark is a blessing, a place to gain faith in Christ. However, for those who call themselves Christian, yet have failed to believe, Mark becomes an offense. In any case, Mark is a place where all of us can gain.

Matthew gave us a reason to believe, Mark gives us the responsibility of belief to better our faith. Since Mark holds the responsibility, it becomes an offense to those who fail to believe. They will search the world for some other manuscript, or some excuse to avoid the responsibility of belief, yet the evidence of Mark shows belief is still the cornerstone to our walk. Mark also shows the danger of unbelief, as well as the blessing of belief, and how our walk can be one of joy and peace, yet worked out by fear and trembling.

Mark views Jesus as the Christ, yet we are going to have a very unique opportunity with Mark, the people will be looking at Jesus as the Christ in the position of the Son of man, because Jesus will deal with the people as the Son of man, but we will be viewing all this as sons of God. We are going to learn how to be a son of God as we walk in Mercy and Grace by the Spirit: let us begin.
