SUNDAY AUGUST 15, 2021
And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
WELCOME TO RESCUE BAPTIST CHURCH
“Sinners are welcome at this church. We are a local body of the Lord Jesus Christ. As you spend time with us, you’ll soon discover we’re an imperfect church, with an imperfect pastor, yet by God’s undeserved grace, we preach, believe, and know the perfect gospel of our never-failing Lord Jesus Christ. We call His name Jesus for He shall, (not might, not maybe) but shall save His people from their sins, and every sinner that trusts in Christ is complete in Him, saved to the uttermost” HEBREWS 7:25 (copied)

YEA, AND AMEN
"For the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us." (2 Corinthians 2:20).
“Our God has given many promises to His believing children. These promises are all IN CHRIST JESUS, since only He existed when they were made and since only He can and has fulfilled all conditions by His obedience and death. Therefore, these promises are all ‘YES in Him and in Him AMEN’, or ‘So be it’ ‘unto the glory of God by us’. His promises, Christ fulfilling them, our preaching Him, and your believing are all for the glory of God.”
Pastor Henry Mahan
HIS GOOD PLEASURE
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure.” - Philippians 2:13
Everything concerning a sinner’s salvation is of God. Nothing is of us. We don’t begin the work of salvation, He does (Phil. 1:6). We don’t perform the work of salvation, He does (Phil. 1:6). We don’t finish the work of salvation, He does (John 19:30, Heb. 1:3). We don’t call on Him, He calls us (Luke 5:32). We don’t seek Him, He seeks us (Luke 19:10). We don’t find Him, He finds us (Luke 15:3-6). We don’t accept Him, He accepts us (Eph. 1:6). We don’t produce our own faith to believe on Him, He puts His own faith in us and causes us to believe on Him (Eph. 2:8). We don’t earn any perfection of our own, He earned it for us (Titus 3:5). It’s not that we loved Him, but that He loved us (1 John 4;10). We don’t keep ourselves in His love, He keeps us there (1 Peter 1:3-5). Salvation is totally of the Lord (Jonah 2:9).
