Special Post

As many of the listeners know Matthew from That’s In The Bible? is often found street preaching at Syracuse University sporting events with other members from his church and from other churches in the area. We thought it might be interesting for some listeners to take a look to see what this is all about. This video was taken March 3, 2012 as people streamed in to attend the game. Here are a couple of minutes from that day. Watch for an upcoming episode as we discuss Street Ministry including door-to-door visitation.

The Whole Armour of God

Once you get saved you get thrust into the midst of a war that’s been raging since God kicked the devil out of heaven. Being saved you are now a soldier in a battle, and God admonishes you to be a good soldierII Tim. 2:3 says, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”

II Cor. 10:3-4 says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: {4} (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”  According to these verses we are not in a physical battle, but rather, a spiritual one.

I Tim. 6:12 further indicates this truth as it tells us to “Fight the good fight of faith.

This same truth is also evident in Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. There is an unseen spiritual battle that is being fought on a spiritual plane and not visible to human eyes.  The Bible pulls back the veil and makes us aware of this battle, at times giving us glimpses into its technical workings. See Daniel ch. 10 & Job ch. 1 & 2 for example. The Christian has an adversary.  Our adversary is the same adversary that God has.  Our adversary is the devil.  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (I Peter 5:8). Now, though he is a formidable foe, it should be noted that the devil can’t make you do anything.  You have a free will and you make your own choices.

The Lord’s Supper


-{Matthew 26:26-29} “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.  But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father;s kingdom.”

1) What is the purpose of the Lord’s Supper?  It has 3 main purposes:

A) For us to remember Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross  to pay for our sins, for us to never forget how large the cost was to redeem us, the cost was His own life.  Jesus said ; “This is my body, which is broken for you“, and ” This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” {Matthew 26:26-28}. In {1st Corinthians 11:24-25} “…this do in remembrance of me…do ye…in remembrance of me.” Continue reading

The Mystery of Iniquity Part 2

Who is the Antichrist?

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.


1 1Ti 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

2 Col 1:27 Christ in you

3 Eph 5:32 Body of Christ

4 Rom 11:25 Temporary Rejection of Israel and it’s Restoration

5 Rev 17:5 Babylon the Great

6 I Cor 15:51 The Rapture

7 II Thess 2:7 The Antichrist

As the counterfeiter it stands to reason if:

God is manifest in the flesh – Satan will be manifest in the flesh

God’s ministers are required to be faithful stewards of the mysteries of God

1Co 4:1-2 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Do you think God put those mysteries there to stay a mystery? Then Continue reading

What To Do With The Bible

II Peter 3:18 says, “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” One of the greatest ways to begin growing in grace is with the Bible.  In Acts 20:32, the Apostle Paul said, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up…” The Bible is well capable of building you up and helping to make you a strong Christian.

1. Desire It – I Peter 2:2

I Peter 2:2 tells us that “As newborn babes” we are to desire God’s word.  It is natural for someone who is saved to desire the word of God.  The Holy Spirit inside the Christian yearns to feed on the Bible.  If you do not have this desire, you are either not saved or you have something interfering with your natural appetite for the Scriptures.  The Bible compares and likens itself to honey in numerous places  (Psalm 19:7-10; Psalm 119:103; Ezekiel 3:1-4; Revelation 10:9-11).  A Christian, then, with his inborn desire for the word of God, has a natural spiritual sweet tooth.  Again, if this natural desire is not there, then something is wrong.  Let’s go to the book of Proverbs where we’ll discover what the problem might be, Proverbs 27:7 says, “The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.” Sometimes you may find yourself so full with sin, or the things of the world that you don’t even “have room” for the Bible.  And instead of desiring it, you don’t even want to deal with it.  It’s like a child who spoils his appetite for a nutritious meal by eating junk food.  The solution is to cut out the junk and force yourself to partake of the word of God, until it becomes “sweet” to you again and your spiritual desires awaken.

2. Read It – Isaiah 34:16 

Isaiah makes it plain and clear Continue reading

Is Theistic Evolution Biblical?

Creation and Evolution are hot topics wherever you bring them up. Try and bring up the Creation account around a school these days, whether it be middle school, high school, college, or even your work place, and see what kind of responses that you get. We have been programmed these days to believe that Evolution is fact and that the Biblical account of Creation is a fairy tale. If you tell anyone you believe the Biblical account of creation and reject the Evolution theory you are mocked and ridiculed as though you are unlearned and ignorant. The school systems teach evolution as the only solution without ever mentioning that there could possibly be a Divine Creator.

I was listening to Continue reading
