“And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives…Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here while I go and pray yonder.” – Matt. 26:30,36

 

Just hours before his crucifixion for the salvation of God’s people, Jesus went into the garden of Gethsemane to pray unto the Father. Just like so many of the places and events surrounding the death of Jesus Christ, Gethsemane carries profound significance as well. Gethsemane means “oil press”, referring to the olive press that produced olive oil for the Jews, and this garden was located on the mount of Olives. Jesus was pressed and crushed under the weight of our sin to produce the “pure olive oil” that is signifying of our anointed and cleansed standing before God based on Christ’s work. Gethsemane once again points us to the work of Christ in the redemption of his people.

I generally refrain myself from acknowledging the disgruntled gossip blog "Old Baptist Test." If you're unfamiliar with the site, it's basically a home for people who were once Primitive Baptist to criticize us and write negative things about us. Over the years, several misrepresentations about what we believe have been published there. I usually just keep walking. But not today.

MTZ Cast | Episode 1 | True and Living God

As the world changes around us, upgrades in technology make new forms of reaching people with the same, sweet gospel possible. In early 2017 at Flint River, we've began broadcasting our sermons in via Facebook live and posting them after the fact. This has been beneficial in many ways, as it enables sick folks miss church to watch the sermon and it allows for others to hear an additional sermon each week. Plus, people in the community get a window into our services.

This week, we launched a new video ministry under the March to Zion "umbrella," a videocast called MTZ Cast. The format will be similar to a live radio program in that it will be less formal, off-the-cuff, conversational, unedited, etc. I hope to include visiting ministers as guests from time to time. Concerning content, we'll consider doctrinal issues and occasionally, current events. Presently, we're considering the Articles of Faith.

You can find these at both the Marchtozion Youtube channel and Facebook page, so be sure to subscribe and follow both!

Here's episode 1: MTZ CAST | Episode 1 | True and Living God

Intelligent Design or Random Chance
Written by David Wise

“And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.” – Exodus 32:24

 

During Moses' time on Mount Sinai receiving the law of God, the Israelites had enticed Aaron to make them a new god, to which he obliged (Exod. 32:1-6). After Moses returns down from the mount, he questions Aaron as to how this graven image came about, and he tries to convince Moses that he cast a bunch of gold in the fire and randomly out came this calf. Moses certainly knew better than that because that molten calf bore the distinguishing marks of intelligent design. When we consider the amazing craftsmanship and intracity of design of God’s creation, it’s just as ludicrous to believe that all that we see around us, especially our human bodies, were just formed and created by random chance, as it's foolish to think that a molten calf just randomly come out of the fire. This world bears the marks of intelligent design and manifests the glory of its Creator.

Philip, The Pattern for Evangelism
Written by David Wise   
Thursday, 22 March 2018 07:19

Philip is the only man in scripture who is specifically denoted by the Holy Spirit as an evangelist – “Philip the evangelist” (Acts 21:8). Paul tells the ordained minister Timothy to “do the work of an evangelist” (2 Tim. 4:5), and he also denotes “evangelists” as one of the four ministerial offices in the New Testament church (Eph. 4:11). Paul certainly did the work of an evangelist, but he held a different office of an apostle, so he never referred to himself by that title. Therefore, we should examine Philip’s life to see the qualifying marks of “an evangelist” and how Philip conducted himself that led the Holy Spirit to single him out solely for this title in scripture. Philip’s travels in Samaria, to the eunuch, and then from city to city have received much attention, but we also see from his later life that his evangelism was also concentrated locally as well, not just traveling from place to place perpetually.
