In this series of lectures the author speaks of the importance of understanding truth and the specifics in defending it.

He compares the church that is unequipped in defending Biblical truth to a man whose immune system has been destroyed. A man such as this is susceptible to every illness. Our main objective is to declare the truth, walk in it and defend it. Therefore:
➢ Christ is the truth.
➢ The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth
➢ We are saved by this Truth
➢ We live this Truth
➢ We worship this Truth
➢ We rejoice in this Truth
➢ We endure persecution for this Truth.

This Truth which the Lord endowed us with will save and keep us throughout our entire lives.

In this series the author also speaks about the uniqueness of the cross and answers the listeners’ questions.

This lecture was recorded in Moscow in 2004

The Beatitudes, part 20

The Old Testament ends with a warning of a curse: “…lest I come and smite the earth with a curse” Mal. 4:6. In juxtaposition to the Old Testament, the New Testament begins with a promise of blessing during Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. We call these blessings The Beatitudes.
The Old Testament law demonstrates man’s need for salvation. The New Testament offers a Savior – the Lord Jesus Christ. The Beatitudes explain the reason for cursing and indicate that man does not possess his own righteousness by which he could escape the wrath of God. The blessedness Christ offers is not dependent on self-effort or self-righteousness, but on the new nature God gives.
Christ offers blessings instead of cursing to those who sincerely accept righteousness and salvation on His terms.
