Psalms Book 2

We’re continuing through the Psalms that we've been studying week by week, and tonight we're at Psalm 60. It's entitled, “A lament over defeat in battle and a prayer for help.” It has probably one of the longest introductions of any Psalm. It says, “For the choir director; according to Shushan Eduth. A Mikhtam of David, to teach; when he struggled with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, and Joab...

1 John

The choir has just sung of our love for God, and that perfectly segways into our text this morning which comes from 1 John chapter 5, verses 1 through 5. Before we read the text together, let's look to God in prayer. Let's pray.

Lord, we are a needy people. We cannot even understand Your word unless Your Spirit comes and gives us illumination. So come,...

Zechariah 1:7-17 Riders on the Storm

Dr. John Currid

It's good to be with you on the Lord's Sabbath Day, where we can come together to study His word. If you would open up your Bibles to the book of Zechariah, Zechariah 1:7-17. This evening we will be looking at the first...

1 John

I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4. We’re returning to our study of 1 John today. One of the things that has become apparent to us through this study is that John has love on his mind. John is very concerned to exhort the Christian church to love, and especially to a love which expresses itself not merely in a claimed love of...

Matthew 24:1-14 The Gospel For All Nations Dr. O. Palmer Robertson

There's a prophecy found in Zephaniah chapter 3 that was spoken 2,700 years ago that is being fulfilled before our very eyes. Zephaniah 3:9: “Then will I purify the lips of the peoples [that is, the nations of the world] that all of them may call on the...

Psalm 2 Missions and the Universal Reign of Jesus the Messiah

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 2. We take a break from our series on 1 John as we come now to Missions Conference Week, and today we're going to be looking at the 2nd Psalm. The Missions Conference Committee...

Psalms Book 2

If you have Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 58, as we continue to work our way through the Second Book of the Psalms. David is still on the run, and David is reflecting on the injustice of those who are leaders, judges, rulers, people who are elders amongst the people of God, people who were to be administrators of justice, people who were...

Psalms Book 2

Sermon on Feb 18, 2004

Psalm 57:1-11

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to the 57th Psalm. If you've peeked ahead and looked at the Psalm, you’ll notice that it bears a relation to the Psalm that we studied the last time together, the 56th Psalm. Both of these Psalms come from that time in David's life in which he was fleeing from Saul. The last time...

Our gracious God...

Psalms Book 2

Sermon on Feb 11, 2004

Psalm 56:1-13

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 56. In Psalm 56 we find ourselves with David, but not King David, at least not King David in the eyes of Israel–King David in the eyes of God, to be sure, but at this point in his career he is a fugitive. He's a fugitive from Saul, prince of Israel, the anointed king...


Mark 1:14-28 Gone Fishing

Dr. Derek Thomas

If you have your Bible with you, and if you don't there's one in the pew just in front of you, turn with me to Mark chapter 1. And we come this evening to the verses that begin at verse 14 and all the way down to verse 28, Mark 1:14-28. Before we read the word of God together, let's come...

1 John

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to 1 John chapter 4, beginning in the 7th verse. We’re continuing to make our way through this book, and we've really come to a culminating passage. John has a lot more to say, but he's come back in the passage we're going to read today to the subject of love as a test of...

Psalms Book 2

If you would please open with me in the word of God to Psalm 55. Our reading tonight is going to be from Psalm 55 and all of the verses. Let us pay reverent attention to the reading of God's holy, inspired and inerrant word.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David. 1 Give ear to my prayer, O God...
