Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 24. We are continuing our study in Jesus’ teaching on the end time. Especially as He gives practical exhortations to us, not only to His disciples but to us, but how we are to prepare for those end times. Especially in this section beginning here in Matthew 24:42 and following all the...

How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Sermon on Aug 25, 1999

Psalm 120:1-7

Let me ask you to turn to Psalm 120. While you’re doing that, I do want to thank you as a congregation for your kindness and expressions of fellowship to me as I join the staff here. It’s a great privilege and honor to do so. And one of the responsibilities that I’ve been asked to undertake this fall is to preach at these prayer meetings. That was...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 24, as we continue our studies in the Lord Jesus’ teachings on the last days, on the end times. As we have said, it as difficult as these verses are, as difficult as the passages is as a whole, especially in its details, the main themes are very clear. God is gracious...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 24. We've been for the last couple of weeks in this great passage in which Jesus sets forth His teaching about the end times and the second coming. In the first three verses of Matthew 24, we saw the two particular questions that the disciples had asked. Look at verse 3. It says...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 24. We began last time looking at this great passage. It's one of the six long sermons of the Lord Jesus recorded by Matthew.

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 23. You will remember that this chapter breaks into three parts. In the first twelve verses, the Lord Jesus diagnoses the spiritual problem of the Scribes and the Pharisees. He says they are guilty of religious hypocrisy. And then in verses 13 through 36 he proceeds to engage in a scathing denunciation, a...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Matthew 23. God in His providence always shows His word to be timely and seasonable.

I’d invite you to turn your bibles with me to Matthew chapter 23 as we study together in the gospel of Matthew. let me remind you of several things before we come to the passage itself.

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 22. The last three weeks we have been looking at a series of exchanges between Jesus and the Jewish religious leaders of Israel in His time.

The Covenant Assured

Last week we concentrated on the first half of this chapter, verses 1 through 14, and we said that Abraham's surrender of his son Isaac was a mirror of God's still greater love, and Abraham's exercise of faith in God's promises. Hebrews tells us he believed that the Lord would raise Isaac again from the dead if...
