Podcast Episode's:
Genesis: The Blessing And The Betrayal
Jacob must have been one rotten kid---In spite of God's clear direction, and although his other son was a numskull, Isaac did not want Jacob to receive his blessing. If it were up to Isaac, it would be Esau who would carry the family line forward. Jacob was not an option.--However, God's decree would not be thwarted, would it-- That will be the focus in today's study of Genesis 27.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why did Isaac prefer Esau-- What were his reasons----B- Was the 'ruse' of Jacob and his mother Rebecca actually a sin----C- What can we learn from the brokenness of this patriarchal family----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Genesis: The Patriarchs And Predestination
Meet Abraham. Isaac. Jacob.--These men, hailed as the 'patriarchs' of the Old Testament, helped shape the entire narrative of our faith.They were also sinners. Big, big sinners. In today's sermon, we'll see that the patriarchs needed God's grace every bit as much as we do. And God gave it to them- His providential care is seen in every part of Genesis 25.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- In what way are the patriarchs the 'Mt. Rushmore' of the OT---B- Why them-- In other words, why did God choose these three men---C- What does this text tell us about the doctrine of 'predestination--'---website- www.fpcgulfport.org-sermons

Genesis: A Father's Sacrifice Of A Son
In Genesis 22, God told Abraham to sacrifice his son. Why----For many, this event is one of the most confusing in all of Scripture - why would God tell Abraham to sacrifice Isaac-- What was His purpose-- And then, why would He tell Abraham to stay his knife-- In today's study, we will study this difficult and heartrending event.--Questions That We'll Answer--1- What was God's purpose here-- Was He testing Abraham---2- What did Abraham think would happen on Mt. Moriah---3- How does this event foreshadow Christ's sacrifice on Calvary-----website- www.fpcgulfport.org-sermons

Genesis: The Destruction Of Sodom And Gomorrah
Sodom and Gomorrah are the poster children for God's wrath.--In Genesis 19, we come across a cautionary tale to a world hellbent on offending a holy God. Specifically, Genesis 19 describes the destruction of these two cities. The destruction was horrific. It was severe. And yet, in Matthew 10, Jesus says that an even worse judgment will befall those places that reject the Gospel.--Questions That We'll Answer---1- What was the sin -or sins- of Sodom and Gomorrah---2- Why was God willing to relent if 10 righteous were found there---3- What did Jesus mean in Matthew 10 -when He referred to Sodom------Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Genesis: Abraham, Sarah, And God's Big Promise
In Genesis 18 made a promise so outrageous that Sarah laughed.--The promises that He has made you are bigger.--Throughout Scripture, God has promised to save and sanctify you, to wipe away all your tears, and to dwell with you in Paradise for eternity. Now those are promises- But how can we be sure they apply to us -and that they will be fulfilled--- That will be the focus of today's sermon.--Questions That We'll Answer---1- Who were the three men that appeared to Abraham in the desert---2- What promises did One of the men make to Abraham and Sarah---3- Why did Sarah laugh, and what was God's reaction to that laughter----Web- www.fpcgulfport.org

Genesis: Abraham, The Friend Of God
God made Abraham mind-boggling promises. Abraham believed Him.--In Genesis 12, Abraham was introduced with little fanfare. He was a man from a pagan family and a pagan background. And yet, God was going to make this nobody a series of incredible promises - promises that Abraham believed in, and then acted accordingly.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What were these amazing promises-- And how many were there---B- Who are the true children of Abraham-- Are you one of his children---C- What does it mean to be called a 'friend' of God-----Web- www.fpcgulfport.org

Genesis: Noah And The Great Flood
The wrong question- how did all the animals fit in the ark----The most crucial question of Genesis 6 is NOT about the animals. Not at all. Rather, it is this- why was an ark needed in the first place-- In other words, why was God willing to flood the entire globe, only six chapters after creating it-- Seems drastic. So why did God do it, and what does it tell us about the future----Questions That We'll Answer---A- In what way did the flood typify the wrath of God 'poured out--'-B- In what way did the ark typify Jesus Christ-- Is Jesus in this text---C- Why did Christ refer to future days as being 'like the days of Noah--'---Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Genesis: A Murder East Of Eden
That didn't take long, did it----You might have thought Genesis 4 couldn't go worse than Genesis 3 - that mankind would have learned its lesson. Surely man would do better- Surely he'd turn away from sin- However, before Genesis 4 was over, a blood soaked corpse proved otherwise.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why did Cain kill his brother-- What was wrong with his sacrifice---B- Why did God warn Cain that 'sin lay at his door--'-C- Is it possible that sin is at our door as well-- What should we do-----www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Genesis: Temptation And Fall In The Garden
One sin. That's all it took.--In our day, sin is treated casually - as a marketing device -think 'Sin City'- and rarely as a spiritual anchor. But one sin is all it took for man to be thrown out of the garden, and for chaos to sweep the created realm. This tells us two things- 1- sin must be really bad, and 2- God must be really holy.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What 'tool' did the serpent use to attack Eve in the garden---B- What is the purpose of the fiery sword at the garden's edge---C- Why are the words 'Genesis 4' the best words in any language-----web- www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Genesis: In The Beginning (Creation)
There is a God, and you are not Him.--The starting point for all correct theology or philosophy is found in Genesis 1, which declares God's existence and transcendence over that which He has made. -In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.---Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why do people argue for 'evolution' or the 'big bang' instead---B- Are those theories consistent w- the Bible's teaching on creation---C- How do we explain the apparent age of rocks, stars, and so forth-----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

He Is Risen: Witnesses To The Resurrection
Witnesses, proof, evidences - it was all there.--The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most heavily reported, historically verified events of antiquity.

Today, we'll consider the implications of the empty tomb.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why were the apostles so anxious in Luke 24----B- Why is the best news often the hardest to believe----C- If Jesus is alive, then what is He doing right now-- Do we know----Web- http---www.fpcgulfport.org

Behold The Lamb: Why Jesus Was The Lamb Of God
On the day the people were looking for a perfect lamb for their Passover celebration, the 'lamb of God' approached. It wasn't a coincidence.--In today's study, we will consider the events of Palm Sunday through an unusual set of eyes - those of John the Baptist. Why did John call Jesus the 'lamb of God--' Why didn't anyone else see Him that way----Questions That We'll Answer---A- What is the connection between the Passover and 'Palm Sunday--'-B- What is the difference between appeasement and atonement---C- Can you be saved by appeasing God-- Why or why not----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

When Christians Face Hardships And Trials
You won't find 'utopia' in a warzone.--So many people misunderstand their reality. They think that this world is their home, irrespective of how little time they'll spend here. They think this world is great, irrespective of the landmines going off around them. Conversely, the Bible says that this world is filled with trials and hardships. And so, our hope is not found in this 'valley of death,' but in the Shepherd that leads us to someplace better.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What words of encouragement did Peter have to the suffering----B- Why does God allow His children to be tested and tried----C- How do we know that our story ends well-- How can we be sure-----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

What Is Love: A Story Of Passion And Sacrifice
What makes 'love' greater than faith or hope----In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul said -now abide faith, hope, love, these three- but the greatest of these is love.- So, why is 'love' superior-- Well, for starters, it is the only one of those three words that applies to God. God does not have 'faith.' God does not hope. But HE DOES LOVE - in fact, HE IS LOVE---Questions That We'll Consider---A- What mess was Corinth in, that they needed a primer on love----B- How does love motivate us in ways that no other emotion can----C- What sets love apart -both now and in Heaven---

The Desert: Salvation Comes To The Wasteland
The desert is home to some of the Bible's most fascinating stories.--In Acts 8, there was a caravan traveling in the desert of Judea. At its head was a pagan eunuch - someone well outside of the covenant community, but not outside of God's plan of salvation. And in order to reach this man, God sent an evangelist into the wasteland. His name was Phillip, and this is his story.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why does God care for rebels, pagans, and sinners---B- What book was the Ethiopian reading when Philip found him---C- What hope does Acts 8 give for the 'lost people' in our lives----Web- www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Why Do The Nations Rage Against God
Rebellion. Rejection. Disdain.--The nations have long rejected God's rule in favor of their own. But why-- What causes the nations to rage against God, and to plot so many vain things-- In today's sermon, we'll consider mankind's ongoing rebellion and God's response.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- How do nations and leaders foment their insurrection---B- What does it mean that God 'sits' in Heaven and laughs at them---C- In what way is Psalm 2 a 'Messianic' Psalm----Web- www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Behold What Manner Of Love!
God does not have any 'peons' in Heaven. He has family.--Your salvation accomplishes so much more than just 'punching your ticket' to Heaven. Rather, it includes this wonderful outcome- you are treated as family when you get there- God has no peons in Heaven, but He does have sons and daughters. -Behold what manner of love the Father has given unto us, that we should be called children of God.---Questions That We'll Answer---A- What does it mean for God to be our Heavenly 'Father--'--B- Why was John so amazed that we are called God's 'children--'--C- What is your value in God's eyes-- How does He see you now--

Mustard Seed (This Is How The Church Grows)
Mustard seeds are small. But they don't stay that way---In Matthew 13, Jesus shared the parable of the 'mustard seed' in describing the kingdom's growth. Mustard seed start small. But in time, they grow upward and outward. Now, who did Jesus share this parable with-- He shared it with a smattering of disciples on the shoreline. They were few. But fast forward to our day, and the kingdom now fills the entire planet -2.38 billion professing believers-.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What can local churches learn from the 'mustard seed' parable----B- Is growth the church's objective-- What about transformation----C- What should the church focus on in a time of cultural upheaval-----Web- fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Hope For Grieving Hearts (Life After Death)
If you have lost someone that you love, it is natural to grieve.--With that said, GRIEF is NOT the same as DESPAIR. In 1 Thessalonians 4, the Apostle Paul makes this distinction. Specifically, he says that although it is OK to lament the loss of a loved one, we do not sorrow as those who have no hope. Reunions are coming. And because of that, our 'grief' is tinged with expectation.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why were the Thessalonians so confused about life after death----B- Will Christians see -and recognize- our loved ones in eternity----C- How can we be sure of this-- What is the basis of our hope------Web- www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Night Is Spent, The Day Is At Hand
How much time do you have left----In Romans 13, the Apostle Paul answered that question this way - not much. Specifically, Paul said that -the night is far spent, the day is at hand.- Paul wanted his readers to understand the value of today. He wanted them to live as if their time was both short and precious.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What other passages refer to 'night and day' in a similar way----B- What are the concepts of 'inner peace' and 'inner war--'--C- What is holding us back-- What's keeping us from living in the 'day--'---www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Whole Counsel Of God (Preaching And Teaching)
How much of God's Word should we preach----To the Apostle Paul, the answer was ALL OF IT. And that's just what he told the Ephesian elders in Acts 10. He told them that he had not refrained from preaching and teaching the whole counsel of God, and he expected them to do the same.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why did Paul invite the Ephesian elders to meet with him----B- Why did Paul tell the elders they'd never see his face again----C- What other points did Paul emphasize during their last visit-----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Intercession: Jesus And The High Priestly Prayer
As Christians, we often remember the things that Jesus has done.--With that said, have you ever wondered- what is He doing now----Among other things, Jesus is interceding on behalf of His people. You have a divine advocate that is -even now- seeking your welfare- And that should be an encouragement during these difficult days.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why is John 17 referred to as the 'high priestly prayer--'-B- Who did Jesus pray for in this text-- And what did He say---C- In what way is Jesus interceding for you this very moment--

The Magnificat: Understanding The Song Of Mary
What is the 'magnificat--'--The 'magnificat' is the name that we give to Mary's song in Luke 1, in which she declares that her soul 'magnifies the Lord.' In today's study, we will see that this is one of the most counter-cultural songs ever written.--Questions That We'll Answer---1- What news did the Angel give Mary-- What was her response----2- Why was it necessary that the Messiah be born of a 'virgin--'--3- What makes the 'magnificat' so counter-cultural-----Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: The Victory And Resurrection Of Jesus
Victory is at hand - your story ends well---The resurrection of Jesus Christ is not only the capstone of the entire Gospel, but it secures your great future. You see, if the grave didn't hold Him, then it won't hold you. And if death can be defeated, then so can all the other hardships that you're undergoing right now. Today may be difficult, but take heart - your story ends well---Questions That We'll Answer In Today's Study---1- What really happened on the Sunday after Christ's death----2- Who were the eyewitnesses to Christ's resurrection----3- What supernatural events rocked Jerusalem on that great day------Church Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: The Betrayal At The Last Supper
In Matthew 26, Jesus sat down. His betrayer joined Him.--In today's study, Jesus sat down for what we call the 'Last Supper,' with His betrayer seated just a few feet away. Our Lord had come to celebrate the Passover with His disciples, knowing this would be their last opportunity to do so. But He also knew the heart -and pending actions- of a man named Judas Iscariot.---In today's study, we'll consider the high stakes of Matthew 26.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why did Judas betray Christ-- What was his purpose and reward----B- What doctrines did Jesus emphasize during the 'Last Supper--'--C- What was about to happen next-- What did Jesus expect to occur-----www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: Jesus And The Trap In The Temple
Jesus was walking into a trap. Several traps, actually.--When Jesus entered the Temple in Matthew 21, the Pharisees, Sadducees and others planned to ask Him questions that might trap or make our Lord look bad before others. They wanted to destroy or hurt His credibility. In today's study, we'll see how Jesus responded.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What was the irony about the questions that Jesus was facing----B- What was the point of Christ's parable about the wedding feast----C- What happened to the improperly dressed 'wedding guest--'--Web- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: The Transfiguration Of Jesus
Jesus, Moses, and Elijah met on the mountaintop. One's face radiated with divine light. The others did not.--Moses and Elijah were no slouches - these were titans of Jewish history, the very embodiment of the law and the prophets. And yet, when standing next to Jesus, they paled. It was Christ alone that the Father referred to, saying -This is my Son, listen to Him- in Matthew 17.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- What was the 'transfiguration,' and why did Jesus undergo it---B- Why did Moses and Elijah appear, and what did they talk about---C- What was Peter's mistake, and what forgiveness did he receive----Site- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail
This was a very wicked region.--In the time of Christ, Caesarea Phillipi was the 'red light district.' It was filled with pagan people doing pagan things. And yet, this is where Jesus took His disciples in Matthew 16. Why-- That will be the focus of today's study.--Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why did Jesus travel to the region known as Hell's gates----B- What did He teach His disciples when they got there----C- Why did Jesus say -on this rock I will build my church-----Church Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: The Calling Of The 12 Apostles
Who were the 12 Apostles----Well, they weren't the sort of men you would expect. They weren't the sort of men that anyone would expect.

Pharisees hated Jesus. This Roman Centurion did not.--Throughout the New Testament, the Pharisees antagonized our Savior. They accused and berated Him at every turn.

How can this be----Questions That We'll Answer---A- Why did Jesus 'marvel' at the faith of the Centurion---B- What stood out about the Centurion's request---C- What warning did Jesus give the Jews in Matthew 8----Website- http---www.fpcgulfport.org

Dr. Toby Holt-Website- www.fpcgulfport.org
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Matthew: The Baptism Of Jesus Christ
If baptism is for SINNERS, then why was JESUS baptized----In Matthew 3, Jesus asked John to baptize him. That blew John's mind. And so, John told Him that it was the other way around - that Christ needed to baptize him- John knew that Jesus had no sins that He needed to repent of, and no need to be 'washed clean.'--So why did Jesus insist on being baptized-- That will be today's focus.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- What sort of baptism was John doing by the Jordan River---B- Were John's baptism the same as our modern baptisms---B- Why did Jesus say His baptism would 'fulfill all righteousness--'--Speaker- Rev. Dr. Toby B. Holt-Church Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Matthew: Emmanuel (Which Means God With Us)
The God who MADE YOU wants to be WITH YOU. Think on that.--The pagan gods didn't work that way. These -false- deities kept the people at arm's length. But our God wants to be close. He walked with Adam in the garden. He dwelt in the tabernacle and temple. He came to earth in the form of a babe. Our God is -Emmanuel- - He is -God With Us.---Join us for Part 2 of our study in the Book of Matthew.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- What is the difference between being 'with' or 'for' someone---B- What did the Angel tell Joseph about Jesus---C- What comfort do the Angel's words have to the hurting----Speaker- Rev.

Matthew: Introduction And Intertestamental Age
Who was Matthew-- What is the Book of Matthew all about----In Part 1 of our new study, we will introduce this Gospel and talk about the audience that it was originally written to - the Israelites. While Matthew contains truth and wisdom for all people, it was first intended to explain the person and work of Jesus to Matthew's Jewish contemporaries.--In addition to introducing the Book of Matthew, we'll also talk about the 'intertestamental age' that preceded its writing.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why was God 'silent' for over 400 years---B- What differentiates Matthew from the other Gospel accounts---C- Why are there two different genealogies -in Matthew and Luke-----Speaker- Rev.

The God Who Keeps His Promises
Throughout the Old Testament, God made a series of incredible promises - promises that defied His people's expectations.

The War Against Your Soul (And How To Fight It)
In 1 Peter 2, the Apostle talked about a 'war' waged against the soul of believers.--When we think of 'war,' we tend to think of external enemies that are coming against us. But that's not the sort of war that Peter was talking about. Rather, Peter was talking about a war that is going on within our own body -even as Christians-. He was talking about a war between our flesh and our spirit.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why did Peter -and other apostles- use military terms so frequently---B- In what way is the devil like a 'roaring lion,' seeking to devour us---C- How can we protect ourselves from that which we cannot see--

Genesis: The Tower Of Babel
God told the people to go outward - to be fruitful and to multiply across the globe.--Instead, the people decided to go upward - to build a tower into the heavens.--In today's study, we'll consider the construction of the -Tower of Babel- in Genesis 11, and see why God came down to deal with its builders.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why was God angered by the building of this particular tower---B- Why did God confuse the language of the builders---C- What relationship does Genesis 11 have with Acts 2 -Pentecost-----Speaker- Rev.

Faith Comes By Hearing, And Hearing By The Word
In Romans 10, Paul asks a series of important questions.--Specifically, he asked this- -How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed-- And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard-- And how shall they hear without a preacher-- And how shall they preach unless they are sent-----If you have come to a saving faith, it is because someone shared God's Word with you. Maybe it was a pastor. Maybe it was a parent. But someone told you about Jesus, and you responded in faith. And now, guess what-- You've been sent to share that same gospel with others.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why did Paul's heart break for his Jewish contemporaries---B- What did Israel need-- Is God done with His covenant people---C- Why is the Gospel called the -power of God unto salvation-----Speaker- Rev. Dr. Toby B. Holt-Church Website- www.fpcgulfport.org

Revival And Reformation: What It Looks Like
Does the church need revival-- Does it need reformation----Throughout history, there have been a number of 'revivals' when God's people have increased in size, health, and ministry. --And in every single case, these revivals involved a renewed emphasis on God's Word. In today's study of 2 Kings 23, we'll see that one of the most famous revivals in history came about after the 'rediscovery' of the law during the reign of King Josiah.--Questions That We'll Answer--A- Why did the ancient Israelites tumble into sin so frequently---B- What does a biblical 'revival' look like-- How can we be sure---C- What would a reformation of your own practices involve--

The Good Samaritan: Who Is Your Neighbor?
Who is your neighbor----That was the question that Jesus asked the proud, arrogant lawyer. The man said that he'd kept the law. The man said that he'd loved his neighbor as himself.

Eternity And Earthen Vessels (2 Cor. 4)
Life is short. Act accordingly.--In today's study, we consider Paul's words to the Corinthians, in which he referred to our mortal bodies as -earthen vessels.- In other words, Paul likened our human bodies to pottery - easily broken, and not built to last.

Exodus: God And The Golden Calf
The 'golden calf' incident is a dark blot in Israelite history.--While coming down the mountain, Moses heard the sound of warfare from below.

The Bread Of Life (John 6:30-40)
-And Jesus said to them, -I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

Exodus: The Ten Commandments (Decalogue)
God's law can teach, it can restrain, and it can disciple. But it cannot save.--That was the problem of the Israelites as they looked at the burning mountain. When they heard the ten commandments, they realized this - as significant as those commandments were, they only condemned, and did not redeem. The fire on the mountain was a reminder that the people still could not approach God, even with the law in hand. So what was their hope-- We'll consider that in our continuing study of the Book of Exodus.

Exodus: The Passover Night (The 10th Plague)
