Exodus

Hardening Pharaoh’s Heart Exodus 4:18-26

If you have Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 4, verse 18. In Exodus 1 God’s sovereignty was emphasized. In Exodus 2 Moses, the future deliverer of Israel, is introduced to us and put in a favorable light. In the end of Exodus 2, verses 23 through 25 we learn that the redemption of Israel...

Romans

Abraham’s Faith and Ours Romans 4:18-25

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to take them in hand and turn with me to Romans, chapter 4. In verses 16 and 17 Paul has been answering a hypothetical question that we’ve posed. Somebody says to him, "Well, Paul, we understand that God wants us to be holy, to live in righteousness, to obey His word...

Job

Sermon on Dec 27, 2000

Job 42

And they all lived happily ever after…

Unexpected as it is, the Book of Job really does end this way. Gone are the days of darkness and gloom. Spring has arrived. God’s favor returns. His face shines on Job once more. Are the memories of Job’s pain erased? No! But, they are built upon so as to make the past a little less painful...

Romans

Faith, Grace and the Spiritual Seed Romans 4:16-17

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 4. Today, we’re going to try and answer a question, and that question is simple. Why is justification by faith? Why is it that God saves us by trusting in Jesus Christ as He has set forth has set forth in the...

Job

Sermon on Dec 20, 2000

Job 40-41

Did you ever ask yourself, Why did God make the hippopotamus?

Strange question? Yes! Especially in the context Job was in. Imagine it! Job is dying; he has suffered incalculable loss and pain. And He is asked: "Did you ever think about the hippopotamus?" You have to admit, this is a little weird.

Actually, the creature God alludes to in chapter 40 is not...

Romans

Faith and the Law Romans 4:13-15

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 4, as we continue to study together through this glorious book. Our minds are very much on the incarnation just now. We’re singing about it. We’re listening to others sing about it. We’re reflecting on it, perhaps individually. And it’s important to realize that...

Job

Sermon on Dec 13, 2000

Job 38-39

Asaph, the Jerusalem choir-director, found himself in a similar position to Job. Wickedness was rewarded and godliness punished; or, so it seemed to Asaph. Life did not make a great deal of sense. "When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me," (Psa 73:16) he confessed. Trying to make sense of God’s ways in this world gave him a headache!

Job is aching...

Exodus

A Spokesman for Moses Exodus 4:10-17

I’d invite you to take your Bibles in hand and turn with me to Exodus 4. Now we’re continuing tonight in our story of Moses’ encounter with the living God at Sinai. As we studied Exodus 1, we saw God’s sovereignty being emphasized in His dealings with His people. When we studied Exodus 2, we saw Moses, the future...

Romans

Sermon on Dec 10, 2000

Romans 4:9-12

Faith and the Covenant Sign of Circumcision Romans 4:9-12

If you have your Bibles I would invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 4. We’ve said a number of times as we have continued to work through the book of Romans that there is no more important question that we could ask and answer than how can a man be right with God...

Exodus

Signs and Wonders for Moses Exodus 4:1-9

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 4. Ever since we entered Exodus 3, we have been witnesses to an ongoing conversation between the Lord, the God of Israel, and Moses, His servant. This conversation began with Moses seeing the curious sight of a bush which was burning, but not...

Romans

Sermon on Dec 3, 2000

Romans 4:4-8

Romans 4:4-8 David Understood Justification by Faith

If you have your Bibles I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 4. We’ve been looking at this great theme of justification for a number of weeks now, especially as we’ve worked through Romans, chapter 3. Paul there has been explaining justification. Justification simply refers to God’s declaring us to be righteous. And he’s been...

Exodus

I Am Who I Am Exodus 3:13-22

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 3. When last we were together, God had revealed Himself in this manifestation of the burning bush to Moses, and had announced to him His intentions to make him His spokesman to Pharaoh and His leader for Israel. Moses has already met the...

Romans

Sermon on Nov 26, 2000

Romans 4:1-3

The Bible Says Abraham was Justified by Faith Romans 4:1-3.

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 4. We have been looking for a number of weeks in our study of Romans 3 at Paul’s teaching on justification by faith. That is, the teaching whereby Paul sets forth the scriptural truth that the way a person is...

Job

Sermon on Nov 15, 2000

Job 32-37

The three friends have been reduced to silence; they are all "talked out." They have failed in their attempt to get Job to say, "This is all my fault!"

Suddenly, we learn that there is a fourth counselor present, — Elihu by name and younger than either Bildad, Zophar or Eliphaz. Until now, he has been silent, but anger explodes ѕ both at the three inept...

Sermon on Nov 12, 2000

Luke 23:32

Luke 22:32 Salvation at the 11th Hour Reverend Geoffrey Thomas

Shout joyfully to the Lord All the earth, serve the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord Himself is God. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His ports with praise....

Job

There is a hymn, the second verse of which goes like this:

He formed the stars, those heavenly flames, He counts their numbers, calls their names; His wisdom’s vast, and knows no bound, A deep where all our thoughts are drowned.

This is Isaac Watts’ attempt to render a part of Psalm 147 into verse. "His wisdom’s...

Exodus

The Burning Bush: Nec tamen Consumebatur Exodus 3:1-12

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 3, as we come to that incident of the burning bush. This is for the second consecutive week a pivotal passage pregnant with meaning in the Exodus story, a section that records the call of Moses into service as the deliverer of...

Job

Sermon on Nov 1, 2000

Job 16-19

Those who have suffered great loss will tell you: they coped whenever the trial first came; it is when it refuses to go away that the trouble begins.

My pain is not relieved…it does not go away. (16:6)

My spirit is broken…(17:1)

Job has begun to think the unthinkable. He has begun to think that God has become his enemyѕ that God...

God Remembered His Covenant Exodus 2:23-25

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 2, to the end of the chapter, beginning in verse 23. In Exodus, chapter 2, verses 23 through 25 we continue a story that we’ve been looking at for a number of weeks now. As we have looked at God’s dealings in the book...
