Skeleton Sermon. Put your own “No’s” into it.
What Part Of “NO” Don’t You Understand?
What’s so hard to understand about NO?
The first five years of my life I thought that NO was also “shut up Johnny!”
Let’s study this simple word “NO” in John’s Gospel.
(1) NO WISE
|John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.|
Jesus is saying that he that cometh unto me I will not turn you away. Now some Baptists (not all) believe that a person can come to CHRIST for years begging God to save them, but He won’t save them because they aren’t “prayed through.” In God’s name, prayed through what? Also, Primitive Baptists not only teach this, but they also teach that you’re born either saved or lost.
If you read this, and belong to a church that teaches this trash, read that verse: If you come to Jesus, He will not cast you out (turn you away), but welcome you into the Family of God! Glory, Glory, Glory!!!
You say, “Brother Johnny, I could kill you!” Hey Mister False Prohet! Don’t you threaten me with Heaven!
Listen my sinner friend. Christ wants to save you more than you want to be saved! Jesus says, “come, and I will save you.”
(2) NO MAN
|John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.|
Oh, sorry Indiana Jones clones, but if God’s Holy Ghost Ghost doesn’t convince and convict them, you might jump on your bus to headquarters telling of the 5000 you won while picking your nose, but Jesus said that they don’t get saved unless the Holy Ghost draws them to him! That is conviction my friend.
Today we are reaping what we have sowed from these super duper, no repentance, no godly sorrow types. And, these bus kids are now our adults. That’s why some are getting saved and the others are driving their poor Pastors crazy, because they have not been Born Again.
(3) NO LIFE
|John 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you|
No. because of this bubble gum salvation. They have no life. They are still dead in trespasses and sins.
(4) NO MORE
|John 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.|
Because of this lie that they have been told(no repentance), they last no time, and walk no more in the church house any more.
I cant say, “walk with Jesus.” They never have because you barred them from Heaven.
(5) NO SIN
|John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.|
(6) NO LIGHT
|John 11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him|
(7 )NO PART
|John 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.|
This verse is self explanatory, except for for the “falling from grace crowd.”
Peter had more sense than this crowd. Look at verse nine. Peter says, “Lord, not just my tootsies, but wash me all over.” Then JESUS says, “Peter, your right. If I don’t wash you all over (soul), you will have no part with me.”
(8) NO CLOAK
|John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.|
No more cover up! Jesus has come to shine the light so that you cant hide your sin.
(9) NO FAULT
|John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all John 19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
John 19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him
It’s strange how an experienced interrogator could find no fault, but many of our college
professors can find some kind of fault in JESUS! I say you have to be reprobate and blind to say that you can find one flaw in this God man called the Christ.
(10) NO KING
|John 19:15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.|
(11) NO MEAT
|John 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.|
Now those fellas got to eat breakfast with Jesus. You and I will eat supper with him! Glory to GOD! Since I am from Louisiana, and he won’t withhold anything from his child, I believe I will have gumbo, dirty rice, jambalaya, crawfish, atoufee, boudin, pistoletes, and alligator at the marriage supper! Jimmy Davis will be singing, “Come Home, It’s Supper Time!” We’ll be singing, dancing and worshipping the King that taught me how to say “NO, NO, NO” to the devil and to compromising preachers.
