Previously, Dr. Beeke examined the first—God’s promises. In this lesson, we will look at the second—evidences of grace in us—and Puritan beliefs about the necessity of these subjective evidence as marks of faith in God’s objective promises. View Resource

    1 John 2:12-14

    God has ordained the preaching of His Word, prayer, and the sacraments as the means by which He sanctifies people’s lives. There is no substitute for the Scriptures if we want to know and please God. Unfortunately, the church today is dethroning God and the power of His Gospel for alternatives and counterfeits.

    1 John 2:12-17

    The Apostle John warns us not to love the world, and our fallen tendency to view the world as an ultimate end in itself means that we must fight against our dark inclinations to set our hearts on this age and its pleasures. But God created the world to glorify Himself, and as we make Him our ultimate end, we can identify the sins that manifest our love for the world and enjoy the Lord’s creation in an appropriate way. Rev. Kevin DeYoung calls on the Lord to restore us to a high view of the world as the arena … View Resource

  • The Antichrist Media Resource by

    1 John 2:18-19

    Who or what is the Antichrist? Is the Antichrist a man or an institution? Is he a person who is presently alive?
