Pastor Richard C. Klueg

The Claims of Christ on Your Life

Matthew 21:1-17

“Coming of Age” practices—a point of decision
Palm Sunday: Israel’s point of decision

Jesus Revealed
Promised by the prophets

The Lord Jesus was cautious about revealing Himself

Palm Sunday: As good a time as ever there would be to reveal …

1.He is the promised King

2.He is not exactly the kind of King they expected

3.He will not accept the corrupt status quo

Jesus Received

By Worship

By Words

By Witness

Jesus Rejected
they were indignant … Do you hear what these are saying?

Chief priests


Hosanna in the highest!

Pastor Richard C Klueg

When God Disappoints Me

Jeremiah 15:15-21

What happens when a preacher gets upset with God?

The Complaint (15-18)
A passive-aggressive prayer:

“I gladly embraced Your Word!”

“I faithfully separated from the world!”

“I deserve better than this.”

The Command (19)
If you return, I will restore you

Utter what is precious and not what is worthless

They shall turn to you, but you shall not turn to them

The Confirmation (20-21)
Jeremiah’s call (1:18-19) reaffirmed:

God’s protection
I will make you … a fortified wall of bronze

They shall not prevail over you

God’s Presence
For I am with you

When God seems far away, guess who moved!

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Guilty As Charged

Jeremiah 17:9-10; 13:23; 14:7

Judge shopping & “triggering” scales
“Moralistic, therapeutic Deism” vs Redemption of totally depraved sinners

My Sinful Condition Is Total Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart

Deceitful above all things

Desperately sick

Who can understand it?

My Sinful Condition Is Terminal Jeremiah 13:23
Accustomed to do evil

The Ethiopian

The leopard

My Sinful Condition Is Treatable Jeremiah 14:7
A confession of sin
Our iniquities testify against us

A cry out to God
Act, O Lord, for your name’s sake

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

Snake Oil Preachers

Jeremiah 14:13-18

Clark Stanley’s cure-all

The Grieving Prophet
Ah! Lord God …

People deceived

Jeremiah shaken

The Lord misrepresented

Godless Preachers

They claim divine authority

I will give you …
Prophesying lies in my name

They were not from God

I did not send them
Nor did I command them
Or speak to them

They were deceivers

A lying vision
Worthless divination
the deceit of their own minds

Follow the money: they ply their trade

Gullible People
I will pour out their evil upon them

Sorrow: Let my eyes run down with tears

Beware the snake oil preacher!

Pastor Richard C. Klueg

How to Argue with God

Jeremiah 12:1-5

“You’ve got some case!”
Having a “good” argument

The Conviction
Rule #1: Plan on losing the argument
Righteous are you, O Lord, when I complain to you …


The Complaint
Rule #2: Be specific and remain rational

Jeremiah’s points:
1. Bad people were prosperous

2. God was the one making them prosperous

3. Their religion is not real

4. Lord knows, I have been good

“That’s not fair!”

Jeremiah’s solution: Smite them. Now.


The Challenge
Rule #3: Put your problem in perspective.

“The mystery of God’s extended patience”

Running with men/Running with horses

In a safe place/In a dangerous place

Perspective: Others have it a lot worse, and maybe you will someday, too.

Losing to the Lord is a blessing!
