The Gospel According to Jesus

Dr. John MacArthur

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/451110A.jpg

What did Jesus mean when He said, “Follow me”? Twenty years ago John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question and provided the evangelical world with the biblical answer. For many, the reality of Jesus’ demands has proved thoroughly searching, profoundly disturbing, and uncomfortably invasive; and yet, heeding His words is eternally rewarding.

The 20th-anniversary edition of MacArthur’s provocative book has revised and expanded the original version to handle contemporary challenges. The debate over what some have called “lordship salvation” hasn’t ended—every generation must face the demands Christ’s lordship. The Gospel According to Jesus remains eminently relevant for the Christian church, and intensely practical for every Christian.

What is True Biblical Christianity?

ANSWER:

JESUS plus or minus Nothing!

DIVINE Accomplishment!

All the Work Has Been Done by Christ Alone!

NOT Human Achievement!

No Human Works, Effort or Merit of Anykind Can Earn One's Redemption & Salvation!

 


"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”

Romans 1:16-17 (NASB)


http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/photoleaningonpiano.jpg

As a born again fully devoted true follower, ambassador, soldier and slave of the Lord Jesus Christ, my daily desire is to bring Honor and Glory to Almighty GOD with the gifts, talents, and skills He has bestowed upon me. In all I do, say and think for His sake I pursue Excellence! In my own human strength and apart from GOD, I am unable to do this! I need and depend on GOD every step of the way, moment by moment, each and every day, and in every area of my life. No matter how large or small the circumstance, problem or trial, I know He has a plan for me, building my faith and that He is molding me to be more like His Son Jesus Christ, The MESSIAH! I am so grateful for GOD's Amazing Grace and His eternal Love, Grace and Mercy towards me which I do not deserve.

The beautiful living, inerrant, infallible and eternal Word of Jehovah GOD is my only source of strength and I can do nothing without Him, but "I can do all things through Him Who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13.

I am thankful for the gift of Eternal salvation through the cruxifiction, the shed blood and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ to pay my sin debt in full on the cross. Jesus paid, on my behalf, a debt He did not owe. I owed a debt I could not pay. I am thankful for His eternal forgiveness and for freeing me from the enslavement of sin, guilt and shame. I am so thankful for the cross of calvary! I am thankful that He did all the work on my behalf on the cross. I am thankful that He died on the cross in place of me.

I am thankful for the precious Blood of the Lamb of God Who was slain for me. Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.

Now, I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and He has transformed my heart and my mind. Now I belong to Him. My point of reference in my daily life is the Cross and Jesus Christ. It is not I and not the world system. Jesus You are my Lord & Master and I am Your slave. I will worship and serve You forever and ever. ag

GOD is AWESOME! JESUS STRONG!

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/johnmacarthur.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

What could be more urgent than knowing, with certainty, where you’re headed after you die?

Fact is, there’s only one way to know.

John MacArthur’s new study, Who Is Jesus, Anyway? shows you exactly what the Bible says

about how you can be sure of your eternal destiny. As John explains the good news about

Jesus Christ and what He accomplished, you’ll also hear a powerful example of how to

communicate that message to others. Believing the truth about Jesus really is a matter of life and death.

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/johnmaarthur3.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

If you’re a Christian, but you’re not living your best life right now, are you doing something wrong?

That’s a legitimate concern, considering what high-profile religious leaders often say. Their message, essentially: turn to Christ today and experience prosperity, good health, and happiness tomorrow.

But the fact is that “now” message couldn’t be more misleading. What you’ll be doing for eternity--that is the issue.

In What Must I Do to Be Saved?, John MacArthur shows you aspects of the gospel you may have never considered. This study will equip you to spot counterfeit teaching, communicate the gospel accurately, and rejoice in the matchless, future blessing God promises.


THE NEW BIRTH

John 3:16-21

16“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall ot perish, but have eternal life. 17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/johnmacarthur.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

To look at some polls, it appears America is very much a Christian nation. But you have to wonder how many of the people surveyed say they’re Christians because they believe there’s a God, grew up with Christian parents who taught them about Christ, or once repeated the sinner’s prayer.

Undoubtedly the sincere claims people make are sometimes far from reality. As chilling as that thought may be, there are countless well-meaning people who believe they’re saved, but aren’t. Could you or someone you know be one of them? How do you know your faith is built on a solid foundation? r is that something you can ever know this side of eternity?

Determine for yourself whether you’re in the faith. John MacArthur helps you do just that in the study he calls Examine Yourself.

Dr. John MacArthur

The Road to Nowhere

Includes 6 messages

Philippians 3:1-11

Today people think they can find God—and salvation—along many paths. It's said there are many roads that lead to heaven - you just have to find the right one for you. Yet those are all roads that go nowhere near heaven. Worse, they lead straight to hell. The question for you is, What path are you on - what road are you traveling? Have you ever wondered whether you really know God? If you have, you're not alone. And there's no more important issue you can resolve in your life than the nature of your relationship with God.

In The Road to Nowhere, John MacArthur offers a three-point test to help you honestly evaluate your standing before God. Gain confidence in your relationship with the Lord as you discover the distinctive qualities that are a part of every believer's life, and most important, learn how to steer clear of the road that leads nowhere.

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/johnmacarthur.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

Clutching fingers, bright, darting eyes, a flashing smile, and a low gurgle punctuated by a piercing cry. It's a fact. Life–even in a baby–can't be concealed. It always has unique characteristics-evidence that reveals a living, breathing person.

The same is true of Christians. Each of us who belong to Christ should exhibit distinct pattems of behavior–evidence of genuine spiritual life. But what does true spiritual life look like? What are the signs of a living, vital, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ?

In The Portrait of a New Life you'll learn how to identify and discard the old, sinful habits and develop new patterns that correspond to who you are now.

Charismatic Chaos

Selected Scriptures

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/jmsml-1_000.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

The charismatic movement, once considered a splinter group on the fringe of Christianity, has gained steam and entered the ‘90s at full speed. Dramatic new accounts of bizarre, supernatural events are attracting men and women hungry for religious experiences while causing others simply to ask, What is really happening here?, or more important, What should I believe?

This 12-message album thoughtfully and carefully shines the light of Scripture on teaching that is gaining a massive and loyal television following, leading to disunity on a world-wide scale, and promising to fuel controversy for years to come. Recorded by John MacArthur, these messages will help you gain an understanding of his bestseller Charismatic Chaos in a short amount of time.

Can God Bless America?

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/264_000.jpg

Includes 3 messages:

America wants God’s blessing but not God. Our nation has systematically pushed Him out of the national consciousness—rejecting biblical morality, ignoring His Word, and relying on the political and entertainment arenas for moral guidance. As a result abortion, homosexuality, drug abuse, divorce, and pornography runs rampant.

Given the depth of moral bankruptcy, can God bless America? Is God angry with America? Are we on the brink of judgment rather than blessing?

In Can God Bless America? John MacArthur argues that God can bless America, but only when the clear biblical conditions are met. Includes a critical look at one approach to turning America around that’s extremely popular among Christians and political conservatives—moral reform through political action.

“The world takes its notion of God, most of all, from those who say they belong to God’s family. They read us a great deal more than they read the Bible.”

Based on your behavior, what conclusions can the people closest to you make about God and His ability to provide peace, purity, and power through His son Jesus Christ? When it comes to your conduct toward God, unbelievers, and other Christians, how do you stack up to what the Bible demands of an effective, mature believer?

The Integrity Factor: A Basic Course in Christian Ethics, lays the groundwork for godly living. In this practical study of Hebrews 13, you’ll find principles for ethical conduct in areas such as love, sexual purity, contentment, spiritual maturity, separation from the world, and submission to leadership.


 

Sexual Survival in an Age of Temptation

Sexual Survival in an Age of Temptation

1 Thessalonians 4:3-8

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/jmsml-1_000.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

God created it, sin corrupted it, Hollywood and Madison Avenue have made a killing off it. Sex is probably one of the most talked about, written about topics around. When enjoyed as God designed, it’s a wonderful human experience. When we go against God’s design, it can destroy families, careers, ministries, and literally kill.

So, in a day when you can hardly glance at a billboard without being confronted by unwholesome images, how do you stay pure? Is cutting yourself off from the media the key to overcoming temptation? What can and should you do to know victory over sexual sin?

In Sexual Survival in an Age of Temptation, John MacArthur helps you understand and apply the standards God has established for your thoughts and behavior in the area of sexual sin. This study can help you strengthen your commitment to purity and overcoming sexual temptation.


A Plea for Personal Purity

Dr. John MacArthur

It’s a message every young person needs to hear—but not just the young. Whatever your age, if you’re a Christian, God expects you to avoid sexual sin. Thankfully, He also equips you to meet that expectation.

In A Plea for Personal Purity, John MacArthur examines the sex-saturated culture around us, unmasking the lies about sex it perpetuates, and showing how society’s obsession with sex has waged war against the Christian. Originally preached to students at The Master’s College—but applicable to every age— A Plea for Personal Purity is armor you need.


The Divorce Dilemma

The Divorce Dilemma

Matthew 19:1-12

Dr. John MacArthur

So you find yourself at one of life's most important crossroads with an extremely difficult decision to make. Whether you are married and considering divorce, single and considering marriage, or divorced and considering remarriage, you wonder, Am I doing what's best? Am I doing what's right?

Maybe you think no one knows exactly how you feel—no one understands the pressures shaping your decision. If that's the case, you'll be relieved to know you are wrong.

In the Bible, God offers the most comprehensive guide to marriage and divorce you'll ever find. The Divorce Dilemma looks directly to the Scriptures to dig out the answers and advice you need. It's a study that can strengthen good marriages, help heal troubled ones, and offer wisdom for singles and divorced people considering marriage. In fact, this study may be one of the best investments you ever make in yourself—and someone you care about.


Think of Excellence

Philippians 4:4-8


4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentlespirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Forgiveness: How to Restore Broken Relationships

Philemon

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/johnmacarthur2.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

It’s the simple mathematics of being human. Two people plus one relationship equals inevitable pain. One unkind word, careless act, or intentional attack, and a gulf is opened that could potentially damage a relationship forever.

That’s where the need for real, biblical forgiveness comes in. Forgiveness can heal even the worst damage between husbands and wives, children and parents, longtime friends, and everyone in between. John MacArthur looks to the life of Philemon to illuminate Scripture’s clearest real-life example of human forgiveness in action.

Living like a Christian isn’t easy. In fact it’s an impossible battle—at least without some powerful defensive and offensive help. Thankfully, God knows what you’re facing, knows what you need, and He has designed the perfect protective gear, exclusively for His children.

What armor has God given you to help you face your battles with temptation, doubt, and discouragement? How are Satan and his unseen forces likely to assault you and your faith—and how can you stand strong and have victory against their clever, dangerous attacks?

Dr. John MacArthur

In our world today, wouldn’t it be nice to know your happiness is not dependent on having even your most basic physical needs met? If “blessed” means “happy”, what was Jesus getting at when He said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit,” or “blessed are those who hunger and thirst”? Can we possess true and lasting happiness?

In The Beatitudes, John MacArthur takes you on a survey of these “Blessed are” statements that probe the moral, ethical, and spiritual guidelines governing all people of God. You’ll discover how it’s possible that:

  • the way down is the way up
  • hunger and thirst lead to satisfaction
  • spiritual poverty leads to spiritual wealth
  • mourning is the way to laughter
  • having nothing is the way to having everything

What is the result of following the guidelines in this study? Christ, Himself, promised it would produce deep-down, abiding happiness.


The Keys to the Kingdom

The Keys to the Kingdom

Luke 6:20-49

Includes 7 messages

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/john-macarthur.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

In an age ruled by human reason and political correctness, the last thing most religions want to do is rub people the wrong way or contradict conventional wisdom about God and His demands. The result? An almost universally taught and believed notion that God plays by mankind’s rules, and that He wants you healthy, wealthy, happy, and feeling good about yourself.

But historically, true and vibrant Christianity has cut across the grain of conventional wisdom. And nowhere is that more clearly enunciated than in Jesus’ masterful Sermon on the Mount—a sermon in which He turned the human wisdom of the religious elite on its head. In The Keys to the Kingdom, John MacArthur explores Luke’s account of the Sermon on the Mount, revealing how the gospel of the Bible and true belief compares to widely held, widely taught error.

Dr. John MacArthur

Happiness and God don't mix—at least that's what many people think. Yet the Lord Jesus Christ's greatest concern for mankind is for true, lasting joy. In fact, His first sermon began on the theme of happiness, though what He said may contrast sharply with what you've been told about happiness.

In the study True Happiness, John MacArthur takes a practical look at resting in the spiritual resources God provides and knowing the peace that goes beyond our ability to understand—even in tough circumstances.

Dr. John MacArthur

The horror that you could enter eternity and find yourself in hell instead of heaven may be—as it is for many Christians—your greatest fear.

You may ask yourself, Could I reach a point where God will no longer forgive me? Can I lose my place in heaven if I forget to confess a sin? I believe I’m saved—but am I deceiving myself? How can I be completely sure?

Can God change His mind about your salvation? In Romans 5:1-11, the apostle Paul provides clear answers—and John MacArthur examines them in his newly revised four-message study called Eternal Security (formerly titled The Security of Salvation).

John concludes this series with a practical, twelve-part test on the assurance of your salvation. Take that test today!

Dr. John MacArthur

The Bible is under attack! We live in an age when the very idea of clear, objective, knowable truth is being assaulted—even from within the visible church. A growing number of pastors claim it’s impossible to know exactly what Scripture means by what it says. They say the Bible is simply not clear—rather, it’s filled with mystery and ambiguity.

Does that mean every doctrine you and I find precious is subject to new interpretation, doubt, and even wholesale rejection? Is the Bible really infallible and inerrant? Can we really know what God’s Word means?

In Making a Case for the Bible, John MacArthur makes the case that God’s truth hasn’t changed. It isn’t mysterious or veiled—He revealed it with sufficient clarity. This study will help you know why you believe what you believe, and instill in you a deeper confidence in the truth of God as revealed in His Word.

In Sexual Survival in an Age of Temptation, John MacArthur helps you understand and apply the standards God has established for your thoughts and behavior in the area of sexual sin. This study can help you strengthen your commitment to purity and overcoming sexual temptation.


Spiritual Terrorism

Spiritual Terrorism

Jude 3-13, 17-23

Dr. John MacArthur

Everywhere in the world, biblical truth is under attack. What may surprise you is that the most devastating assault isn't coming from outside the church--it's coming from spiritual terrorists within the church.

On the surface these terrorists look, act, and sound like everyone else. In their comfortable concealment they raise doubts about God's Word, undermine its authority, and create chaos that, left unchecked, destroys churches.

Who are the spiritual terrorists? How do you identify them--what are the telltale signs? And how can you defend yourself against them?

In twenty-five powerful verses, Jude provides the counterintelligence to foil Spiritual Terrorism. Let John MacArthur show you how to spot enemies in the church, overcome their lies, and stay vigilant in the battle for truth.


Taming the Tongue

Taming the Tongue

Colossians 4:2-6; James 3:1-2

Includes 4 messages

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/jmsml-1_000.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

Words are a powerful thing. They give us the power to heal and the power to hurt. The power to give hope and the power to discourage. The power to build up and the power to tear down. There is no marriage, family, or friendship that isn’t either made stronger or made weaker by how you choose and use your words.

Yet controlling what we say from moment to moment is perhaps the most daunting challenge of Christian living. It’s the closest most of us will ever come to trying to tame a wild beast.

So how can you avoid the angry outbursts, cutting remarks, and unguarded responses that lead only to damage, embarrassment, and regret? And what kind of new habits of speech should replace the old?

In Taming the Tongue, John MacArthur shows you how to follow God’s plan for managing the words you speak in any given situation. You’ll learn how to pray, proclaim the gospel, and edify others. You’ll also discover that managing your words is the key to controlling your spiritual life.


The Costly Decision to Run from God

Dr. Charles Stanley

Anytime that we choose to disobey the Lord’s specific instructions to us, we are running from Him. The story of Jonah illustrates what can happen when a person rebels against the Almighty. The narrative teaches us a powerful lesson about the foolishness of resisting God’s will.

Mere Christianity

By: C.S. Lewis HarperOne / 2001 / Hardcover

Arguably the 20th century's most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics.

Freedom And Power of Forgiveness

Dr. John MacArthur

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/451129.jpg

To be human is to desperately need forgiveness. And not only God’s. Real forgiveness is vital for healthy, strong relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, friends, co-workers, and everyone in between.

But what’s the difference between forgiving someone and tolerating sin? And how should you and your church respond when a professing believer refuses to repent? How does modern psychology line up with God’s Word when it comes to healing damaged relationships?

The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness explores the issues thoughtfully and thoroughly.


Slave:

The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ

 

http://s239545718.onlinehome.us/images/451170.jpg

Dr. John MacArthur

The most profound reality for every believer is a relationship with Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, our teacher, and our friend. But the Bible teaches that at the most basic level Jesus is our Lord, our Master, which means we are His slaves.

Peruse most Bible translations and it’s easy to miss that crucial reality. That’s because many find the notion of slavery to be a cruel and embarrassing concept. John MacArthur’s new book, Slave, uncovers the conspiracy, bringing the doctrine of our slavery to Christ to its proper place in our thinking.

Embrace for yourself what the Bible really teaches about slavery—your relationship with Jesus Christ will never be the same.
