The Book of Shem

The New World Order (Life after the deluge)

Part III
Sermon on Dec 27, 1998

Genesis 11:10-32

Genesis 11:10-32.

The New World Order (Life after the deluge) Part III: The Book of Shem

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 11. This is the third and last in a short series on a brief transitional section in the book of Genesis. Moses himself begins this section in Genesis, chapter 10 which he opens...

Matthew

Sermon on Dec 27, 1998

Matthew 19:1-12

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew 19.  Today we’re beginning a new study in the section of the gospel of Matthew.  Jesus has been speaking to his disciples, in an extended series of lessons and a discourse in Matthew, chapter 18.  Now, in Matthew 19, He’s left Galilee, He’s in the border regions of Judea just on the other side...

Hebrews

Sermon on Dec 20, 1998

Hebrews 10:26-39

Turn with me to Hebrews 1.  We have been studying the Book of Hebrews for a number of weeks now.  I have lost count and we are drawing near to the close of the book.  We are coming up on Hebrews 11, perhaps the best known section.  In the month of January, the Lord willing, we will be looking four different Wednesday evenings at that glorious passage, the...

Matthew

Sermon on Dec 20, 1998

Matthew 18:21-35

If you have your bible, I would invite You to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 18. We have been looking at this great passage for about a month or so. It's hard to believe that it all began with the question, "Who is the greatest?" Ever since the disciples asked that question, they have been treated to discussions of how to relate to their brothers, how to...

Hebrews

Sermon on Dec 16, 1998

Hebrews 10:19-25

Throughout the first 10 chapters of Hebrews, we have said that the theme is Jesus the Great High Priest.  The author of Hebrews is sparing no effort to convince us that Jesus is a superior priest to anything that Israel ever experienced to anything that we ever could experience.  That is the specific thrust of the book to this point.  And when we get to Hebrews 10, the...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Babel

The New World Order (Life after the deluge)

Part II

Genesis 11:1-9

Babel

If you have your Bibles with you tonight, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 11. The last time we were in the book of Genesis together, a couple of weeks ago, we entered into a new section of Genesis looking at Genesis, chapter 10, with the list of the sons: Shem and Ham and Japheth. And that...

Matthew

Sermon on Dec 13, 1998

Matthew 18:15-20

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 18, as we continue our study of this great passage together.  I’d invite you to look back to the very first of the chapter and scan along the passage itself leading up to Matthew 18, verses 15 through 20.  You know that the whole of this passage is concerned with how we live...

Matthew

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 18.  As we have looked at this chapter we have seen that it is all tied together, a very similar theme runs throughout.  The focus of Jesus' whole instruction throughout the chapter is our relationship with one another in the Church. What are the proper relationships between members between citizens of the kingdom...

Hebrews

Sermon on Dec 2, 1998

Hebrews 10:1-18

Turn with me to Hebrews 10.  Last week we focused in Hebrews 9: 15-28 on the finality of Christ’s sacrifice. This week we focus on a related subject — the perfection of Christ’s sacrifice. Last week we emphasized the fact that whereas Old Testament sacrifices repeated themselves, Christ’s sacrifice was once for all. And therein lies one of the fundamental differences between the Old Testament sacrificial system and...

November

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Line of the Sons of Noah

The New World Order (Life after the deluge)

Part I

Genesis 10:1-32.

The New World Order (Life after the deluge)(l): The Line of the Sons of Noah

If you have your Bibles with you please turn with me to Genesis, chapter 10. Tonight we enter into a new section of the book of Genesis. Moses himself partitions this particular chapter and gives it the heading "the Toledoth of the sons of Noah," that is...

Matthew

Sermon on Nov 29, 1998

Matthew 18:12-14

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 18. Matthew chapter 18 opens with a question. The disciples are questioning the Lord Jesus Christ - a little embarrassed that He knew what they were talking about - but asking Him the question: "Lord, who is the greatest in the kingdom?" And, in the context of responding to the disciples and teaching...

Hebrews

Sermon on Nov 24, 1998

Hebrews 9:15-28

Turn with me to Hebrews 9 as we continue our study of this great book.  The last time we were together in this passage, we were looking at the first half of Hebrews 9 and we are going to pick up with the second half.  The first thing I would say is there is a sense in which the argument of the second begins in verse 11. We...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Cursing of Canaan

The Flood (The Life of Noah)

Part VI

Genesis 9:18-29

The Cursing of Canaan

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 9. We’ll begin in verse 18 tonight. As we have studied the book of Genesis together, we've seen the creation account in Genesis, chapter 1. We have seen God's special favor towards man highlighted in Genesis, chapter 2 and Genesis, chapter 3. We have...

Matthew

Sermon on Nov 15, 1998

Matthew 18:7-11

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter 18 and verse 7.  As we looked together at Matthew 17 verses 24 to 27 we noticed in that incident when the tax collectors in Capernaum came to Peter and asked him whether the Lord Jesus paid the temple tax, Jesus gave opportunity or took opportunity at that incident to attest to his divinity and to show the example of his humility to Peter. ...

Hebrews

Sermon on Nov 11, 1998

Hebrews 9:1-14

Turn in your Bibles to Hebrews 9.  As we have already seen, a great theme from Hebrews 2 - 10, is Jesus as our Great High Priest, and especially in chapter 8, there has been a stress on Jesus as a superior High Priest to the priests of the Old Testament and as the mediator of a better covenant.  And as that idea of Jesus being a better...

Matthew

Sermon on Nov 8, 1998

Matthew 18:1-6

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew 18.  After the Transfiguration, the Lord Jesus Christ told the disciples of the impending trial and the suffering that He would endure, indeed the death that He was going to die for them in Jerusalem.  And you remember the disciple’s response?  The disciples responded by despairing.  We saw that in Matthew 16.  In Matthew...

Hebrews

Sermon on Nov 4, 1998

Hebrews 8:1-13

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

Hebrews

Sermon on Oct 21, 1998

Hebrews 7:18-28

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...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

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...
