The Justice in Mercy Part 1


Sermon notes of Pastor Mark Downey with William Finck

Scripture Reading:  Romans 9:14-18

I recently did a program with William Finck at Christogenea.org and this sermon is an extension and enhancement of that broadcast. Thus, I rightly give credit where credit is due for Bill's help in putting the pieces of the puzzle together. In his introduction he stated, “Mercy is the most important component in the providence of God, which must be understood before Christians can understand how all Israel is saved… It is God's will, not man's, that will prevail over His Creation.” This was a tough nut to crack until Bill told me the simple answer to what I thought was perplexing, with one word: “mercy.” And that's all it took for me to begin researching and writing for today's presentation.

Our church recently received a letter with very pointed questions and all of them revolved around the seeming disparity of justice regarding various biblical characters who committed similar offences, but received dissimilar judgments of the Law. I appreciate tough questions that force us to seek answers. As Prov. 27:17 tells us, “iron sharpens iron,” suggesting how learned Christian brethren sharpen one another's minds by conversation.

The Justice in Mercy

by Pastor Mark Downey

The meaning of justice and mercy as it applies to Israel.

Part 1: Mercy is the most important component in the Providence of God and the most misunderstood element of Scripture, because of its racial message to save all of Israel.

Part 2:  If salvation is exclusive to Israel, then mercy must follow the same race of people that Christ said hear and follow Him.

A Christian Inaugural Address - 2017


Sermon notes of Pastor Mark Downey

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision, the people perish

When was the last time you heard another Christian share a vision with you, that wasn’t floating in the ether of raptured prose or pious platitudes, but rather something of a vision that was down to earth, unpretentious, understandable and provides the kind of hope that foments victory?  Well, this is a sequel to my sermon ‘Jesus Christ for President,’ because I realized what good is that premise without a follow-up as to how things would be should people rally together in their desire for the government of Christ Himself.  Therefore, a vision is a plan with a purpose and a Christian Identity Inaugural address serves the purpose of familiarizing ourselves with what could be our destiny and reality. Unfortunately, our people have been more conditioned and programmed to an apocalyptic end of the world, than an end of the Mystery religions and prophetic Babylon.  I think the point of Christ’s return is that the bride has finally made herself ready. And if we could envision an inaugural address, fictional as it may be, where God’s people Israel are on the verge of renewing her vows of marriage, we may not perish after all.  I have only given this sermon twice before at the time of George W. Bush being crowned for a second term, during the deification of Obama’s second term (2013) and I give it now (1-8-17) just prior to the Trump era beginning January 20th. Let us now prepare our lives for what must come to pass.

This is an inaugural address that Trump should give, but won't.
