Jack Van Impe On New Age False Teaching

Slide 11: 

Genesis CHAPTER 1 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5

Slide 12: 

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening?? and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament?? in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Slide 13: 

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass??, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Slide 14: 

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day?? from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day??, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Slide 15: 

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Slide 16: 

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Slide 17: 

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth?? upon the earth.

Slide 18: 

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing?? seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life??, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

Slide 19: 

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. CHAPTER 2 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created?? and made. Verse 4

Slide 20: 

Genesis 2:4 "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,"

Slide 21: 

Genesis 2:4 "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,"

Slide 22: 

So the name Jehovah really comes from two Hebrew words, the "Jahwe" that most heard and the second Hebrew term is "Havah". Now the definition for the Hebrew Deity name "Jahwe" was the I AM.

Slide 23: 

When Moses was at the burning bush and he said, "When I go back to the children of Israel and tell them that God has sent me, they are going to ask me "What is his name? What shall I tell them.“ "You tell the children of Israel that I AM hath sent you." The I AM THAT I AM. That was the definition of "Jahwe". The eternal preexistent I AM.

Slide 24: 

The contraction of Jahwe Havah then as we see it in our Old Testament becomes the name "Jehovah". And that is what it is, it is a contraction of Jahwe Havah. Jehovah then is the I AM who is to be more and more revealed.

Slide 25: 

So this is a continuing revelation of the eternal I AM. Exodus chapter 3. To show that now with Adam on the scene, the eternal preexistent I AM, God the Son, is going to be the one that is going to be more and more revealed as we come up through the human experience.

Slide 26: 

All you have to do is to stop and think about it for a minute. First He walked with Adam in the Garden in the cool of the day. Then in a further revelation, we see Him reveal Himself to Abraham. And, if you want to see a good example of God appearing in human form in the Old Testament, all you have to do is read Genesis chapter 18.

Slide 27: 

That is where Abraham prepared the fatted calf and prepared the meal and the I AM, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, actually sat down and partook of that meal. Then to Exodus chapter 3 and we find Him in the burning bush. In the burning bush He doesn’t appear in human form but He appears by way of a human voice. And as Moses is standing there on that holy ground where he was told to remove his shoes, then verse 13:

Slide 28: 

Exodus 3:13a "And Moses said unto God,..." There’s that term again. Even though we have separated Him out of the Godhead as the Jehovah, as God the Son, yet He is still God. Which brings us to something that’s hard to believe.

Slide 29: 

So the word LORD could be interchanged with Jehovah. So he says, I am Jehovah. Now verse 3. Exodus 6:3 "And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not know to them." But now He is. The name Jehovah has been put out in plain language. Now let’s follow that up into the New Testament when theologians will say that Jesus never claimed to be God and that they don’t believe in His Deity. You see when they say that, then they have to throw Scripture away!

Slide 30: 

In John’s gospel chapter 8 Here in this portion of Scripture the Pharisees are literally testing Jesus [as Jack Van Impe mentioned]. They are trying to drive Him into a corner. And, to them whenever He would claim to be God, it was pure blasphemy, you know that. So this is what they really wanted to hear.

Slide 31: 

They wanted to hear Him say in no uncertain terms that He was the God of Abraham. Then they would have every cause to put Him to death. That was as blasphemous as they thought a person could get. So after all this conversation going on between Jesus and these religious leaders of Israel, verse 52 says:

Slide 32: 

John 8:52-53 "Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou has a devil. (or a demon) Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying he shall never taste of death. 53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? And the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?"

Slide 33: 

John 8:52-53 "Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou has a devil. (or a demon) Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying he shall never taste of death. 53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? And the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?"

Slide 34: 

John 8:54 "Jesus answered, If I honour my self, my honour is nothing; it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:" You talk about caustic! That’s what we’ve got here. Look what He says to these religious leaders in verse 55.

Slide 35: 

John 8:55-56 "Yet ye have not known him; but I know him; and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you; (now that is harsh words. That’s coming from the Lord Jesus Himself.) but I know him, and keep his saying. 56. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it and was glad."

Slide 36: 

In Genesis 18, the Lord actually sat down in human form and had that meal of fatted calf with Abraham and God shared His covenant with Abraham. So Abraham knew all about the coming of this Son of God, one day, to the nation of Israel. So Jesus rightly said, Abraham saw my day and rejoiced! Now look at the response of the religious Jewish leaders in verse 57.

Slide 37: 

John 8:57 "Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?"

Slide 38: 

How long ago did Abraham live? Abraham was about 2000 BC. And what they were aghast at was that here was Jesus only thirty some years old is claiming that He knew Abraham that has lived 2000 years before.

Slide 39: 

That’s what they were saying. You mean to tell us that you KNEW Abraham? See their unbelief! But now look at Jesus’ reply. John 8:58 "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you before Abraham was, I am."

Slide 40: 

That’s what they were saying. You mean to tell us that you KNEW Abraham? See their unbelief! But now look at Jesus’ reply. John 8:58 "Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you before Abraham was, I am."

Slide 41: 

What’s He claiming? He’s the I AM! He is the pre-eternal, self existent, I AM who would be more and more and more revealed. We have already seen Him revealed coming up through the Old Testament in various ways. Now He comes on the scene, born of Mary, in the flesh. Presents Himself to the nation of Israel.

Slide 42: 

He goes to the cross. He is risen from the dead. And again He presents Himself to His followers for 40 days after His resurrection. It was the same one, but now He’s in that resurrected body. He’s in that body fashioned like the body we will one day have. It was a further revelation.

Slide 43: 

Then, we go on through the Scriptures and Paul begins to reveal Him as the God of all Grace. The Lord Jesus, who loved us and died for us and gave Himself for us. Oh, that’s a further revelation of the very person of Christ. His compassion, His love for us, that He actually went to the Cross in order to purchase our redemption.

Slide 44: 

Then in the Book of Revelation,. It’s a revelation of Jesus Christ. And we see Him now coming in the clouds of Glory, to be King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And we see, this constant reveling? We get more and more and more of who He is as we come through the Word of God.

Slide 45: 

Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

Slide 46: 

Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

Slide 47: 

That just puts the frosting on the cake! Man was created out of the natural elements and that’s all our flesh really is. It’s just water and the elements that are taken in the ground. When we die we go back to those same elements. But, the crowning act of creation was when the LORD God breathed into that new creation, the breath of life.

Slide 48: 

He made man in His own image, by giving him a mind, will and emotion. He gave him three invisible entities that were all attributes of God as well, and that was all put in when God breathed into man the breath of life and he became a living soul.

Slide 49: 

The word "living" is more than 70 or 80 or 90 years. This means ETERNAL. It can never be emphasized enough, that every human being is an eternal being. He is going to live in eternity someplace. This is why it behooves us to understand the plan of salvation that God has made so available and so free. That by simply believing Paul’s GOSPEL, we can live eternally in God’s presence.

Slide 50: 

Whereas by rejecting Paul’s GOSPEL, by being disobedient, we are going to live forever separated from God. It is that separation from God that is by definition, the Second Death. We will be separated from God, unless we are united to Him by Faith in Paul’s Gospel.

Slide 51: 

And for that Gospel, To memorize it, if possible. And realize that The Gospel that we are responsible for believing is most clearly put in I Corinthians 15, those first four verses. You cannot find another portion of Scripture where it is so simply put and so plainly put that there is no room for argument.

Slide 52: 

This is The Gospel, or as Paul says in different passages, "My Gospel" Denominationally, there may be differences, but on one point there can be no difference. No matter what our background, what our handle is, there is only one Gospel of salvation, and here it is laid out in I Corinthians 15.

1 Co 15:1-4 : 

1 Co 15:1-4 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep?? in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Slide 54: 

Now here’s our hope that everyone, will be skilled enough in the Scripture that God can use us to present this Gospel to anyone who may be searching and looking for the plan of salvation.

Slide 55: 

That’s The Gospel! You can’t add anything to it! You can’t take anything from it! That’s The Gospel! Romans chapter 10 verse 9. Paul is writing to the predominately Gentile congregation at Rome and he said.

Slide 56: 

Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, (here it comes) and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, If you will believe with all your heart that God has raised Him from the dead) thou shalt be saved."

Slide 57: 

Now to I Corinthians chapter 1 verse 18. Paul writes: I Corinthians 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; (what’s the preaching of the cross? That Christ died, was buried, and rose again. That’s it! But isn’t that what the world says?

Slide 58: 

How can I believe that somebody 2000 years ago has anything to do with me today. But, oh, that’s the preaching of the cross.) but unto us which are saved (remember, we are precious few any more) it (the preaching of the cross or the preaching of the Gospel) is the power of God."

Slide 59: 

It can be put this way. It took greater amount of God’s power to save one of us sinners than it did to create the universe. And if people could just get a glimpse of this. That the very power of God has to become instrumental in our salvation. That’s why we can’t work for it, that’s why we can’t merit it. It takes the very power of God. How do we release that power? By believing the Gospel

Slide 60: 

It’s the power of God unto salvation, as Romans chapter 1 verse 16 puts it, to everyone that joins the Church? No. That is baptized? Takes communion? No. But to everyone that believeth. Remember, faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

Slide 61: 

And that’s the preyer of this lesson that all would be capable of using a few of these verses that where just shown : I Corinthians 15: 1-4. Romans 1:16, Romans 10:10 and I Corinthians 1:18 and show others how to be saved!!
