Hebrews

This is all part of the argument which begins back in Hebrews 4:14 and goes all the way through chapter 9, verse 14, that Jesus is a better high priest than we could have possibly had under the Old Covenant ceremonial ritual.  He is superior in every way to that priesthood.  The author of Hebrews is piling up arguments because these Hebrew Christians in this congregation are tugged...

I Chronicles 29:11-12 A Kingdom Perspective on Stewardship

I'd invite you to turn with me to First Chronicles, chapter 29. First Chronicles 29, verses 11 and 12. You are familiar with these verses by now. You heard a profound and passionate exposition of them last week. You have seen them on your stewardship information cards. These are the things proclaiming the stewardship season. And I want to look...

October

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 2.  I want to point your attention to two verses.  We are going to begin today by making some observations about dispensationalism and then we are going to give a rapid overview to the Davidic Covenant and especially the establishment of the house of David in II Samuel 7.  But first I...

The whole  area of the law of Moses and the economy of God. The Mosaic Covenant and how it relates to the Covenant of Grace, and especially to the New Testament, is one of the fundamental issues that underlies the difference between dispensationalism and Covenant Theology.  So bearing that in mind as we plow into this material today, I think it will help us understand the importance on...

Hebrews

This is a rich passage, and I want to try and be as clear as we possibly can about the chain of argument here, because in my opinion, the change of argument from Hebrews 7:11 down to the end of the chapter in verse 28 can be a bit difficult to follow.  It needs to be followed closely.  It’s all tied together with what the author of Hebrews...

The Sign in the Clouds

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part V

Genesis 9:1-17

The Flood (The Life of Noah) Part 5: The Sign in the Clouds

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 9. As we have reviewed the early chapters of the book of Genesis, we have seen the work of creation recounted in Genesis 1, we've seen the special favor of God toward man highlighted...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 17.  We’ve been in Matthew 17 for a number of weeks now.  We’ve seen the account of our Lord’s transfiguration, His glory on the mountain.  We’ve seen Him come down from the mountain and return to the villages and do a great work of healing, the young boy who was both demon possessed...

Hebrews

I invite you to turn with me to Hebrews 7.  This is a relatively difficult passage to outline, and so I have given you a relatively complete outline and we’ll try and hit the high points as we go through.  You remember that so far in Hebrews 7, the author of Hebrews has introduced to us the idea that Jesus is a high priest according to the order...

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

We've seen His special favor towards man highlighted in Genesis, chapter 2. We've seen the status of day in human history in Genesis, chapter 3, and the fall of our...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 17.  We'll be looking verses 22 and 23 today.  In this passage we come to the second great announcement of Jesus' impending suffering and death and resurrection.  In our studies of Matthew 17,  so far we've seen in the first 13 verses that account of His transfiguration; the glory of Christ shone forth...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Colossians chapter 2, Colossians chapter 2.  We will begin reading in verse 8. 

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of...

Hebrews

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to the book of Hebrews 7.   We’re in Hebrews 7, and I’d like, while you have your thumb at Hebrews 7, to turn back with me for just a moment to Hebrews 5.  Because in Hebrews 5:6, the author of Hebrews quotes for us a passage from the Psalms.  And, in fact, he goes back to...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 17.  Today we come to a new section of chapter 17.  In the first thirteen verses we saw a description of the transfiguration of our Lord on the mountain and now, as the Lord Jesus and His three disciples make their way down from the summit, they come to a very, very different...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis chapter 17, Genesis chapter 17.  In Genesis chapter 17, in verse 1, we read, 

Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, And I...

September

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew 17. As we have studied in Matthew 16 together for the last few weeks, we have seen there Peter's confession of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Son of the living God, therefore acknowledging that He is the divine Messiah prophesied by God in the Old Testament to come and save...

If you have your Bibles, turn with me to the book of Genesis chapter 6.  Genesis 6, beginning in verse 9. 

These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. And Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the...

Hebrews

Turn with me in your Bibles to Hebrews 6.  If I can take your attention back to Hebrews 5 for a few moments and remind you that beginning in Hebrews 5:11, after a section in which the author of Hebrews has thought about the idea of Christ as our High Priest and specifically Christ as a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek, he’s concluded with that...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Deluge

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part III

Genesis 7:1-24

The Deluge

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Genesis, chapter 7. We have recounted the story of primeval history recorded for us here in the first six chapters. We've seen the work of creation recorded in Chapter 1. We've seen God's special favor towards man highlighted in Genesis, chapter 2. We've seen the saddest moment in human history...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 16.  Today we come to the conclusion of our study of this great chapter.  Let me ask you to turn back in the pages of your mind to our study of Matthew 16 verses 13-20 and then 21-23.  If you don’t remember those, or you weren’t with us, you might scan with your...

If you have your Bibles, please open to Genesis 3:14 as we read God’s Word.

And the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field.  On your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life.  And I will put enmity between you...
