Long Live the King: Part 10

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

As we continue our study in First Kings, we learn of Solomon's high standards in the building of his temple for God.
 
We observe the solemnities in the building of the temple that were built in stony silence and see the similar reverent silence in Jesus's conviction on the cross.
 
We use Solomon as a tool to see the glory of Jesus Christ and to point us towards God's will at work.
 
We learn that God moves in his own merciful silence throughout the world, constantly and unresting.
 
We take heed of our own good works if it's not for God's glory first; for we are not judged by our works, but by our faith.
 
Keep this verse in mind:
Luke 17:20-21 NIV
Once,on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is in your midst."

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

Today's sermon is brought to you by our guest speaker and fellow brother in Christ, Alex Herrera.

As we diviate from our study in first kings, we delve into Romans for breif refresher.

We are reminded that there are none amongst us who are rightious in ourselves, no not one... but through faith in Jesus Christ, we are made rightious!

Listen to the Good news and believe! 

Keep this verse in mind:

Romans 8:31 NIV

What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

The Cross: Part 4

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

In these past few weeks, we discussed those who were responsible for the cross.

This week, we see the outcome of all their work: The resurrection of Jesus Christ and his victory over sin and of death itself!

Why did Jesus come as man?

Why did he have to die?

Who did he die for?

All these questions were answered before the very act! All to show mankind, knowing how cynical we can be, that his word is law and that he loved us enough to give his own begotten son.

Keep this verse in mind:

Romans 6:4 NIV

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the father, we too may live a new life.

The Cross: Part 3

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

This week, as we look to those responsible for the cross, we focus on Jesus's own responsibility on the cross.

Let's delve deeper into just how profound the blood of Christ truly is to mankind.

We discuss the spiritual thirst we all share for salvation that has existed for countless generations and Jesus's connection to finally quenching it for good.

Keep this verse in mind:

John 6:35 NIV

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."

The Cross: Part 2

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

As we continue our series on the cross, we take a look at the profound influences of the cross throughout history and how it’s message still echoes throughout modern times.

The cross remains the symbol of a revolution at work since the beginning of time, from the fall of man to the crucifixion and beyond!

we begin to see through our cross-focused eyes and distinguish the shared responsibility between satanic influence, human responsibility and God’s sovereignty connected to the cross.

Keep this verse in mind:

Acts 2:22-24

“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through Him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”

The Cross: Part 1

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

This week we're taking a break from Solomon's story to shine the spotlight on the cross.

What is the meaning of the cross? What is the message of the Bible?  What is Christianity?

Every Christian should answer: It's about Jesus Christ being crucified to save sinners! It's not about living the life that Jesus lived, but receiving the gift of life that He gives with His death!

As we follow along in the gospel, we begin to see that everything always leads us back to the cross and to what it stands for.

Keep this verse in mind:

Hebrews 2:14-15

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by His death he might break the power of him who holds the power death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Long Live the King: Part 8

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

As we continue into chapter 4 of First Kings, we witness God, the promise keeper, uphold his word in chapter 4. Giving not just a wise and discerning heart, but both wealth and honor.

We hear today just a taste of Solomon's wealth, from the officials and governors under his rule to his daily provisions that were never lacking and his vast knowledge that brought people from all the nations in the world to hear.

This foreshadowing of the Messiah's coming Kingdom brings 3 main points to walk away with: Run to Christ, Run from Compromise, Run for the Kingdom.

Run for it, Run!

Keep this verse in mind:

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Long Live the King: Part 7

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

We left off a couple weeks ago in 1-Kings chapter 3, where the Lord granted Solomon a wise and mature heart.

On this message, we hear an unforgettable account of God's wisdom bestowed upon Solomon and the unconditional love of a mother who's willing to give it all away to do what is right for her child.

Solomon shows to all that day the difference between man's law and God's law, man's wisdom and God's wisdom.

Keep this verse in mind:

Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but the interests of others.

Long Live the King: Part 6

Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.

Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.

On this message, God stoop down and draw near to Solomon and said: "Ask, what should I give you?"
In that scene, we saw one of God's most audacious promises fleshed out before our mind's eye. "Draw near to me and I will draw near to you." (James 4:8a). And the picture above quotes Jer. 29:13, a verse that describes the answer to the question we wrestled with; How do we draw near to God?

We used Solomon's example in 1 Kings 3:4-15 to see 8 characteristics of what drawing near to God looks like. The prophet Jeremiah sums it up in one sentence; "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (See also Deut. 6:4-5 and the "greatest commandment" from Jesus in Mark 12:28–30)

What does seeking God, drawing near to God with all your heart, (soul, strength, and mind) look like? We broke it down and unpacked it this way: Solomon drew near to God:
1. Physically (he took his but to church)
2. Financially. (he gave freely and generously)
3. Historically. (he had respect for and went to the places that God had consecrated)
4. Reverently. (he approached God with great fear.)
5. Obediently. (he did as the Lord had commanded in His Word and through His elders)
6. Single-Mindedly. (he was laser-focused, no half stepping in his pursuit of God)
7. Humbly. (he knew it was all of grace that he even was allowed to draw near to God)
8. Gratefully. (he vocalized and paid the proper respect to all God had done)

Put this into practice and hear God when He draws near and says to you; "Ask, what should I give you." And in that moment realize the relationship He wants with you, that of a Father to a son and answer back "what ELSE could you give me, you gave me all in Christ! Thank you for loving me, I know you got me..."
