🕇 Minute With McGee – Re-Aired 10.16.23

Thru The Bible Banner
Dr. J. Vernon McGee, Th.D.

Only By Faith

Synopsis: Paul makes it very clear in the third chapter of Romans. He presents Christ as the propitiation, the mercy seat for our sins. And then he says “for the sins that are past.” And that doesn't mean our sins that are past, it means the sins before the Cross. When God saved Abraham, God saved Abraham on credit. That offering Abraham brought didn’t save him. It pointed to Christ. And when Christ died on the cross, He paid for everything that was past. That's what He meant when He said “it's finished”—for those that are past and for those of us that are future. And the trouble of it is with us future is we want to add something to it. He did it all.

About Church of the Open Door
Built in 1914, the 4000-seat Church of the Open Door was conceived by R. A. Torrey who had come to Los Angeles to start a Bible institute (now known as Biola University) similar to Moody Bible Institute. Other pastors have included Louis T. Talbot (1932–1948) and J. Vernon McGee (1949–1970). The church is strictly non-denominational, though Evangelical. Its mission was to reach the lost of Los Angeles, which was reflected in the name ‘Church of the Open Door’ based on two passages of Scripture:

“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” - Jesus Christ, John 10:9 KJV

“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” - Jesus Christ, Revelation 3:8 KJV
