Gospel of Matthew – The Divine Trinity in Chapter 6

10-Divine-Trinity-in-Matt-6

Before getting into the attached slides, enjoy these tasty verses revealing the Divine Trinity in chapter 6 of Matthew and His wonderful 3-fold wish.

Matthew 6:9-13 You then pray in this way: Our Father who is in the heavens, Your name be sanctified; 10 Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Psalms 8:1 O Jehovah our Lord, / How excellent is Your name / In all the earth, / You who have set Your glory over the heavens!

Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel trumpeted; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever.

[The reality of these verses] is being fulfilled in this age, and it will be ultimately fulfilled in the coming kingdom age, when the name of God will be excellent in all the earth (Psa. 8:1), the kingdom of the world will become the kingdom of Christ (Rev. 11:15), and the will of God will be accomplished. Our heart is beating and blood is pumping through our veins to fulfill this threefold desire of the Triune God—that His name would be excellent in all the earth, the kingdom of the world would become the kingdom of Christ, and the will of God would be accomplished fully in this universe. We have to pray for this to happen, and we need [97] to ask the Lord as the Spirit of reality to guide us into this reality in our daily life for the church life. (Crystallization Study of Matthew, Vol. 1, Message 4, Ed Marks)

In this Bible study we have 3 main parts, followed by an extra excerpt.

  1. The 3-Fold Wish of the Triune God

We can Put Our Burden on Him

Utah-Christians-on-Campus-Testimony-We-Can-Put-our-Burden-on-Him

During last week’s bible study we talked about taking the Lord as rest, eating Him as crumbs, and doing the Father’s will. And one verse that really stood out to me is, Matthew 11:28-30 which says,

28 Come to Me all who toil and are burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

And I really love this verse because it talks about how the Lord is willing to take our heavy burden from us and to lighten our load. He’s willing to help us in our lives. And He’s willing to just come to our aid when we ask for it, and He’s willing to do all these things for us, to make our lives easier. Even though He doesn’t have to, He wants to.
He wants to help us go through life a lot easier.

And I just think that is such an important message for us to learn, to know that we can trust in Him, we can put our burden on Him, because He’s going to lighten that burden for us. And He’s there for us, to help us. – Suzie

Gospel of Matthew – Taking the Lord as Rest, Eating Him as Crumbs, and Doing the Father’s Will

07-Taking-the-Lord-as-rest

God’s goal is to gain us so that we express Him, all the time, to the fullest extent. Is this possible? How do we get from where we are now to this lofty goal of God? Is it about doing successful good works? What way does Christ show us?

In this Bible study we look at taking Christ as our rest; we look at taking him as bread, and even crumbs; and we look at doing the will of God.

Christ is one who rested in doing the will of God. His delight did not come from outward successes but from seeing God’s will done on earth. He invites us to be like Him.

As with all our Bible studies, the “meat” comes from diving into God’s word together and discussing it. We invite you to join us or gather with some others to study (and eat) God’s word together.

As a Man, Jesus Defeated Satan

Utah-Christians-on-Campus-Testimony-Story-As-a-man-Jesus-defeated-Satan

Amen, In last week’s Bible study we went over that Jesus is the Son of Man. Praise the Lord.

Many of us have heard that Jesus is the Son of God but how is He both the Son of God and the Son of Man? When we say Son, it means that you come from someone. Jesus was sent by God and came from God and in similar respects, Jesus came from man.

We went over several aspects of the Lord’s humanity in which He was able to forgive sins.
He was the true king and the true priest and had the highest authority on earth. And my most favorite is that He was able to defeat Satan, as a man.

In Matthew 4:8-10 it says:
Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, All these will I give You if You will fall down and worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Go away, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.”

This is very meaningful. It shows us that even in our humanity we can defeat Satan just as the Lord as a man overcame all of his temptations, and in every occassion, defeated Satan. One other example is when Jesus died on the cross and defeated Satan once again.

The Lord has always desired His people to have dominion over the evil one, and that we are able to step over him and we too can overcome him as long as we have the Lord Jesus Christ we can do everything and accomplish everything. Praise the Lord. – Amarisa

The Way God is With Us

Utah-Christians-on-Campus-Testimony-The-Way-God-is-With-Us

Hello, My name is Ariel, and I’d like to share something I enjoyed from our recent Bible study.  Matthew 1:23 says, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son and they shall call His name Emmanuel which is translated God with us.”

Now, I like sports and there are certain teams that I root for and I often say that I’m with them. However, I have no effect on how that team performs. If I’m here watching on TV and they’re performing probably somewhere far away. No matter how passionate I am about rooting for them, they won’t get any better. But the way God is with us is much greater than this. He is actually in us and He is one with us. So if we believe in Him and call on Him, He can help us through our days and help us solve any problem we face. – Ariel

Gospel of Matthew – Christ is the Son of Man

06-Christ-is-the-Son-of-Man

In the Gospel of Matthew, the King Savior, Jesus Christ, comes to establish His kingdom on earth. In this Bible Study we see that He uses the term “Son of Man” when referring to Himself. Why does He do this?

We invite you to dig deep into God’s word with us again. Revelation awaits you in this Bible study, that is, the unveiling of things not previously seen.

Gospel of Mathew – A Tour of Our All-Inclusive Christ

05-Tour-of-All-Inclusive-Christ

At Christians on Campus, we believe that knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the best thing we could ever do. Knowing Him is not just having met Him once, believing in Him and realizing that He is now in us. Knowing Him is getting-to-know-him, more and more, little by little, and deeper and deeper. This is why the the Bible is so rich as it describes our Savior.

The Gospel of Matthew introduces us to the King, but what kind of king is He? We all know this one is the Christ, but what does the Christ mean? And, what does it mean that He is the Son of the living God?

Here are some scripture verses that motivate us to get to know Christ more and more.

Hosea 6:1-3 Come and let us return to Jehovah; / For He has torn us, but He will heal us, / And He has stricken us, but He will bind us up. 2 He will enliven us after two days; / On the third day He will raise us up, / And we will live in His presence. 3 Therefore let us know, let us pursue knowing Jehovah: / His going forth is as sure as the dawn, / And He will come to us as the rain, / As the late rain which waters the earth.

John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

Gospel of Matthew – They Shall Call His Name Emmanuel

04-They-Shall-Call-His-Name-Emmanuel

This Bible Study jumps into the intrinsic significance of the name Emmanuel, God with us. Today, God being with us is certainly for our encouragement as believers. But God being WITH us means much more than just God being for us.

The attached slides first speak of the meaning of Emmanuel, “God with Us”. Then They go on to speak of the Presence of the Triune God, the Spirit of Reality. Certainly, God being with His people is a theme throughout the whole book of Matthew and even the whole New Testament.

The deepest appreciation and most intimate application of God being with us is His dwelling in our spirit. We must know our spirit, the dwelling place of God today. This is what is covered in the final slide. It is covered in a way that college students can relate.

God’s intention, from His dealings with His people in the Old Testament, through the birth of Jesus as Emmanuel and His wonderful salvation, is that He wants to be one with man. Although not included in the slides, we leave you with this powerful verse from the concluding sentences of the whole Bible.

Revelation 21:3 And I heard a loud voice out of the throne, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will tabernacle with them, and they will be His peoples, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.

I Enjoyed the Meaning of the Name Jesus

Utah-Christians-on-Campus-Testimony-Story-I-Enjoyed-the-Meaning-of-the-name-Jesus

Hi, I’m Shennen and I would like to share what I enjoyed in our last Bible Study.  In this last Bible study I enjoyed the meaning of the name Jesus. Jesus means Jehovah our Savior or Jehovah our salvation. But what does Jehovah mean? In Exodus 3:14, God says to Moses, I am who I am…Thus you shall say to the children of Israel that I AM has sent me to you. In this verse we see that Jesus is the I AM. He is whatever we need. As Jehovah our Savior not only does He wash away our sins He also imparts His life into us so that we may be empowered to live for God. – Shennen

Gospel of Matthew – You Shall Call His Name Jesus

03-You-Shall-Call-His-Name-Jesus-1

And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins. – Matthew 1:21

In this Bible study we cover three things.

  1. The Meaning of the Name of Jesus
  2. The Double Cure
  3. Calling on the Name of the Lord to be Saved

The material is comprised primarily of verses. The fellowship in the groups when going over this Bible study together should bring out the depths, the riches, and the application for us today.

On the last slide, you’ll find a charge to sing Psalm 116:12-13. Here is the music and lyrics:

What shall I give unto the Lord
For all, for all, for all He’s done for me?
I’ll take the cup of salvation,
And call, and call, and call upon the name
  of the Lord.

There is much more content we could have included in the slides. This will become evident as you go through this Bible study. If you are with a group, pull from the collective knowledge of the group to get a fuller picture of the background of the son of David and the son of Abraham.

Finally, turn your knowledge and appreciation of Christ into prayer. Contacting the Lord is the only way to make all the blessings of the Bible real to us.

Gospel of Matthew – The Gospel of the Kingdom

01-The-Gospel-of-the-Kingdom

What is the gospel of the kingdom?

First, it seems that many people treat the word “gospel” as “truth”, or “accepted doctrine”. But actually, gospel means good news. We are bringing good news to the University of Utah! Second, is the good news of-the-kingdom the same as the-good-news in general? No, the “gospel of the kingdom” is used in particular to denote a certain gospel. Jesus Christ is God the creator who became a man. Coming as a man, he preached this gospel.

From that time Jesus began to proclaim and to say, Repent, for the kingdom of the heavens has drawn near. – Matthew 4:17

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. – Matthew 24:14

In this Bible Study we will cover 3 points. Join us in fellowship! All are welcome!

  • Jesus and the Kingdom of the heavens
  • Regeneration for the Kingdom of God
  • Lord, Establish Your Kingdom Within Me
