JOHN THE BAPTIST SERMON OUTLINES

by Ernest Easley

So join me for a few minutes tonight in Matthew chapter 11. Now last time together, we learned that John the Baptist was the last of the Old Testament Prophets yet, he was the beginning of the New Testament Prophets. The last of the old and the first of the new! Can't you see John out by the Jordan confronting people with the good news of Jesus? Do you know what I've found? I've found that wherever...

There are many personalities in the New Testament, but unique among them all is John the Baptist. F.B. Meyer wrote: Every sign attests the unique and singular glory of the Baptist. Not that his career was signalized by the blaze of prodigy and wonder, like the multiplication of the widow's meal or the descent of the fire of...

Today, just before school starts back we are introduced to the quintessential world changer. A guy who in the amount of time that equals about one school year radically impacted this planet. Verse 6 6 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. But John's story didn't begin in verse 6. You see the Old Testament Prophet has told that there...

This morning I invited you to consider Jesus, humility-and the greatest man who ever lived up until Christ. The supreme lesson of John the Baptist's life is humility. And there can be no more vital message that we all need to hear than that God HATES pride. God uses John because he was willing to obey the Lord and by the power of the Holy Spirit...

In this passage of Scripture, the Lord Jesus says about John the Baptist that he was the greatest man, born of women, up until that particular time. When you study the conclusion of the life of John the Baptist is certainly does not seem to be the conclusion of a successful ministry. In fact, it seems to be quite a sad ending to the ministry of John. John had been quite a preacher. He had...

I heard a story about a soldier who had suffered a traumatic wound in World War I and had lost much of his memory. He made a practice of attending veterans' conventions and crying out, ''Can anyone tell me who I am?'' Each of us has to answer the question, ''Who am I?'' We all need to be named. It's one of the gifts our parents give us - they name us. In our younger years we're desperate to find...

Does anybody here know what baptism means? (I asked the audience for what they knew of baptism. They cited salvation, forgiveness, gift of the Holy Spirit, clothing ourselves with Christ, death/burial and resurrection) Now, all those things are true. And all those things are wonderful things that God does for us when we accept His gift of love by our Faith, Repentance...

I was baptized in a farm pond, in the summertime, along with 28 other people. We had no baptisteries in those days, and we had to be saved up until the water got warm. Needless to say, it was a memorable experience. The church would gather around the pond and sing hymns like ''Shall we gather at the river,'' and ''On Jordon's stormy banks.'' There are certain days...

Once on a bright June day I stood upon a summit of the Blue Ridge Mountains. To the north and to the south stretched the mountains, their mighty shoulders draped with a haze of infinite blue. In front of me lay the Cumberland Valley, well-watered, like the garden of the Lord. I could see the fields and orchards with their alternate hues like checkered squares; the white ribbons that...

What's in a name? Names are significant. Names have a purpose. John 1:6, ''There came a man sent from God, whose name was John'' let's discover some wonderful truths from the Bible about this man sent from God, whose name was John. 1. Understand God's Delays are not God's Denials...

In our lesson this evening, we find Paul back in the city of Ephesus. You will remember in chapter 18, he had left Aquila and Priscilla at Ephesus, as he journeyed to Jerusalem in order to keep the feast. Upon his return to Ephesus, Paul meets 12 Christians ("disciples") who had not yet heard of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They understood only the baptism of...

I hope you remember that last week as we entered into 2017, I said that the best way for us to face this New Year is to remember that we must LOOK FORWARD and we need to keep our eyes on Christ...that if looking forward and keeping our eyes on Jesus is in fact what we're really serious about doing in 2017, then I felt it....
