"You shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man." Jn 1: 51 Our Scripture  begins with a remarkable moment in the ministry of our Lord. Jesus with only two disciples! And those two, so far, knowing practically nothing! But, what a beginning! With this small beginning, heaven itself would one day be "open" for the ransom and rescue of all mankind!

"John saw Jesus coming and said: 'Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.'" Jn 1: 23 NKJV It might be the most remarkable statement in the entire Bible. And how astonishing that John knew this, the moment he saw Jesus, when all the rest of the world could not see it--disciples included! Jesus had come to be the sacrificial lamb that takes away the is of the world.  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'make straight the way of the Lord'." Jn 1: 23 John the Baptist was a remarkable man! Filled with the Spirit even before he was born! (Lk 1:41) Jesus insisted there'd been "no one greater". (Mt 11: 11) And yet you would never know it, listening to John speak! To him, Jesus was everything, and he himself ws only a 'voice'! What a perfect example of the true Christian! This morning, let's learn from this wonderful spokesman for Christ.   Message by Pastor Rod Schorr Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series on the Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

"The Word became flesh and dwelt among us." Jn 1: 14  There is no statement in all the Bible more important than this one: "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." It is the fulfillment of everything said and done in the Old Testament. This was God's purpose ever since the Fall! And how wonderful to know that it was His purpose for you!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

"...and the world did not know Him..." John 1: 10 There is no one in all the world more deluded than the agnostic, and no one in greater peril! At least the atheist knows he is taking an openly defiant position! But the agnostic? He clings to the notion of an "innocent ignorance". Our Scripture this morning makes it clear: there is really no such thing.  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series:       The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie.

"That was the true Light, which gives lit to every man, coming into the world." Jn 1: 9 When John sat down to write this book, this gaol was to shine the Light of Christ into the overpowering darkness of this world and dispel it forever! But--wouldn't you know?--there are 'false lights' dotting the landscape, and the perils of following them are great! Let's take a look...

"In the  beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1 America ha been walking for decades now through the gloomy labyrinth of her own darkness. We've lost the Way! And with every new 'step'--new trend--the way just gets darker and darker. Can we find our  earrings again? John's Gospel is proof that we can, if...we go back to the beginning.  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

"You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." Jn 1: 5 John's Gospel is all about Truth. He mentions the concept 23 times (and 20 more times in his epistles). There's a reason for that: John knew he was writing to a world that was caught in the grip of a lie! And that makes his writings so relevant today, because our generation is still caught in the grip!

2 Cor 13: 7-14 "Only entropy comes easy," (collapse) one of Chekhov's characters observes. How true! It takes force and fortitude to build things up, and almost nothing at all to tear things down. And, as Christians, you and I are committed to 'building up'. Paul certainly was. Let's learn how to do it this morning. Message by Pastor Rod Schorr.

"Let Truth and Falsehood grapple," dear old John Milton once claimed, "the Truth will never be put to the worse." Yes, it is good for Truth to be tested at times; and never is that truer than in the life of the Christian! He is supposed to be 'tested' and 'proven'. In fact, he must 'test' and 'prove' himself!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange CA From his series on 2 Corinthians: You, The Ultimate Survivor
