  • WHEN THE HEAT IS ON

    ~ The Gospel of Luke 12:8-12 ~

  • 8 I tell you, everyone who acknowledges

    Luke 12:18-19

    me before men, the Son of Man also willacknowledge before the angels of God,9 but the one who denies me before menwill be denied before the angels of God.

  • I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man,

    and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all

    peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that

    shall not be destroyed.

    ~ Daniel 7:13-14

  • ~ The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:9

    if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your

    heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes

    and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses

    and is saved.

  • To acknowledge Jesus before men is

    to be open and honest about our total

    life-commitment to him as our Saviour

    and Lord.

  • 8 I tell you, everyone who acknowledges

    Luke 12:18-19

    me before men, the Son of Man also willacknowledge before the angels of God,

    will be denied before the angels of God. 9 but the one who denies me before men

  • 10 And everyone who speaks a word

    Luke 12:18-19

    against the Son of Man will be forgiven,but the one who blasphemes againstthe Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

  • 11 And when they bring you before the

    Luke 12:18-19

    synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about howyou should defend yourself or what youshould say, 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you should say.

  • Remember the word I said to you: A

    servant is not greater than his master. If

    they persecuted me, they will also

    persecute you.~ Jesus of Nazareth in The Gospel of John 15:20

  • Why does Luke record this account in his historical

    biography of Jesus?

    Important Question

  • Jesus royalty deserves our loyalty.

  • The idea that Jesus truly did rise form the dead is

    indeed the most dangerous idea on Earth, for it tells us that not all men stay dead.

    Given the inevitability of death, this truth is the

    greatest news that mortal human beings could ever

    hope to hear.

  • ~ The Apostle Peter ~

  • Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial

    when it comes upon you to test you, as though

    something strange were happening to you. But

    rejoice insofar as you share Christs sufferings, that you

    may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is

    revealed.

    ~ The Apostle Peterin 1 Peter 4:12ff.

  • If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are

    blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that

    name.~ The Apostle Peter

    in 1 Peter 4:12ff.

  • ~ The Apostle Paul ~

  • ~ The Apostle Paul in Romans 8:35ff

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

    Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

    No, in all these things we are more than conquerers through him who loved us.

  • ~ The Apostle Paul in Romans 8:35ff

    For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels

    nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our

    Lord.

  • ~ The Apostle John ~

  • Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the

    heavens, It has come at last salvation and power

    and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of

    his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to

    earththe one who accuses them before our

    God day and night.

    ~ The Apostle John in Revelation 12:10-11

  • And they have defeated him by the blood of the

    Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were

    afraid to die.

    ~ The Apostle John in Revelation 12:10-11 (NIV)

  • In your hearts, set apart Christ as Lord.
