Isaiah 1:18-20

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of preaching on Isaiah 30 and we centered on verse 18, which the best Old Testament scholars tell us is the hinge on which the entire prophecy swings. It’s not just the backbeat, the undercurrent, the ground-beat of all of Isaiah’s prophecy. In fact, we could make a case for saying it’s the centerpiece for all of Scripture. You...

“God's Word Proclaimed: The Beauty of Zion”

Isaiah 2:2-5

The Reverend Mr. Joshua M. Rieger

We’re going to come to Isaiah 2. Over the course of the last month we've been celebrating our 175th anniversary as a church and as we come to the close of this month, we're certainly still going to be looking in the coming weeks at...

Chapter 6

Now you may be asking, “Why are we looking at it again, then, if he did such a great job?” My answer is that this week you’re going to get in the mail this little booklet which is our 2019 Global Mission Conference summary. It’s going to tell you all about what’s coming in just a few weeks. I’m asking you to think about this booklet and the...

Good evening.  Let me first thank the Missions Committee, the Session, and the Reverend Mr. Strain for this invitation.  Indeed not one I take lightly.  It’s a privilege to stand in this pulpit. As you all know, Second Pres. Greenville is Dr. Duncan’s home church so I felt connected to this place for years before I ever actually saw the church, so we’ve been loving for y’all and...

In one of his letters to the humanist, Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam, Martin Luther offered as an indictment of Erasmus’ thought a comment that probably diagnoses the causes of so many of the spiritual diseases that continue to plague our Christian lives even today. He said this. “Your thoughts of God are too human.” “Your thoughts of God are too human.” When friends pushed back with skepticism on...

Isaiah 6:1-7 “The God Who Is”

Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas

Now turn with me, if you would, to the prophet Isaiah, and the very familiar words of chapter six. Isaiah, chapter six. If you’re visiting with us tonight, we come to the end, the final in a series that began, I suppose the beginning of June or July–June, maybe–it's been all summer long–a...

In 2 Corinthians 3, verse 18, Paul says that, “we all with unveiled faces beholding the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.” Okay, so you see what he’s saying? Beholding the glory of God and being transformed into His likeness go together. To the degree that you behold His glory, to that same degree you are...

Monday Morning Quarterback

Once, as an experiment, the great scientist Isaac Newton stared at the image of the sun reflected in a mirror. The brightness burned into his retina, and he suffered temporary blindness. Even after he hid for three days behind closed shutters, still the bright spot would not fade from his vision. “I used all means to divert my imagination from the sun,” he writes, “But if I thought...

Prepare Him Room

Sermon on Dec 4, 2016

Isaiah 7:1-17

I wonder if you’ve put up your Christmas tree yet. That was my duty yesterday. I was out in the rain choosing a tree; I got cold and wet. There were pine needles in my hair and resin on my elbows. And then there was the sanctifying business of wrestling the thing through the front door into the stand without denuding the tree of every needle that it...
