Chance Hicks – The Sermon on the Mount – Exceeding Righteousness



Righteousness (Matt. 5:6, 10; 5:20; 6:33; Psa. 119:172)

  • Jesus teaches the Pursuit of Righteousness (Matt. 6:33; Matt. 12:36; Matt. 5:6; Matt. 7:7-8) – it is not stumbled upon; it must be sought after!
  • Jesus teaches the Priority of Righteousness (Matt. 6:33) – it is not to be a priority but the priority of life!
  • Jesus teaches the Provision of Righteousness (Matt. 6:33, 32) – His way of provision is for us to pursue righteousness!

 

 

Brandon Renfroe – What is Armageddon?



  • Armageddon is the “great day of the Lord” (Revelation 16:14).
  • But the “great day of the Lord” is the Judgment Day (2 Peter 3:10).
  • Therefore, Armageddon is the Judgment Day.
  • We don’t have to worry about a physical “Battle of Armageddon.”
  • The true “Battle of Armageddon” is the Judgment Day—when Christ will destroy his enemies.
  • We do not know when Christ will return, but we should live like it could be any day—for it could!
