Chapter 10

An Ancient Christmas: The Coming of Jesus in the Old Testament

Sermon on Dec 9, 2012

Isaiah 10:33-12:6

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Isaiah chapter 10. We’re going to read a section that runs from Isaiah 10:33 all the way to 12:6. We’re looking tonight in our series called, “An Ancient Christmas,” at a passage, especially Isaiah 11:1-10, which speaks of the prophecy of a branch. Now this branch prophecy is an important Messianic prophecy in the Old...

Chapter 11

Christmas Series: Nine Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 9, 2007

Isaiah 11:1-9

The Lord's Day Evening

December 9, 2007

Isaiah 11:1-9

Nine Lessons and Carols

The Fourth Lesson

Christmas for Animal Lovers?

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now as Ligon reminded us this morning this is “Isaiah day”... (or “I-zaa-ah” day!) It's fascinating why in the Nine Lessons and Carols why they chose the particular texts that they chose. For example, many of us, I suppose, if...

Christmas Series: A Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols

Sermon on Dec 11, 2005

Isaiah 11:1-9

We begin tonight exactly where Derek left off this morning. If you’ll remember the third “D” in the outline this morning, it was Dominion. And this passage picks up with dominion, but let me remind you of what Derek has already told us.

From at least Isaiah 7 on for a number of chapters, the context is King Ahaz and his plan to rescue...

Prepare Him Room

Sermon on Dec 24, 2016

Isaiah 11:1-9

Probably the great symbol of Christmas is the tree. I love a good Christmas tree, don’t you? All decorated, sparkling with lights, covered in ornaments; those ornaments, many of them perhaps in your home, tell a story of some significance to your family. Well, Isaiah suggests a different Christmas symbol for us in the opening verse of chapter 11. Not a Christmas tree, but the stump of a...

Chapter 25

Sermon on Mar 6, 2016

Isaiah 25:6-9

I was on the second floor of our house in Chiba, Japan, right outside Tokyo, and I heard this great big commotion downstairs. The kids were fighting and screaming and I ran downstairs, angry because I was interrupted from my work, and my son, Danny, he was fifteen years old - he’s now a church planter in Atlanta - had my daughter, Sarah Beth, who was eight who...

Chapter 30

Sermon on May 28, 2017

Isaiah 30

I want to offer you a challenge. That is, to put your bulletin in your Bible when you go home, and come back to this chapter. I’d encourage you to read this chapter and camp in it for a while as I have been camping in it because it’s profound. What God promises and what He warns will be the bookends of your Christian experience. I’ll come back...

Chapter 33

Pilgrim's Progress

Sermon on Sep 11, 2005

Isaiah 33:15-17

Now turn with me, if you would, to the prophecy of Isaiah.

Isaiah 33 is like a psalm — it feels like a psalm, it reads like a psalm. It's a depiction of the judgment that will befall Assyria, who at this point in Judah's history is their most inveterate enemy, and the prophet is foreseeing a day when Assyria will be no more, when sin...

Chapter 35

Christmas Series: Getting a Handel on Christmas

Sermon on Dec 14, 2003

Isaiah 35:5-6

Isaiah 35:5-6; 40:11 Opening the Eyes of the Blind Dr. Derek Thomas

Now last week we began a series of sermons based on the text, or in this case some of the texts, of George F. Handel's Messiah. And we've been concentrating primarily upon the Isaiahnic texts, the texts of the prophecy of Isaiah, and we heard a rendition so beautifully given to us this evening, from Isaiah...

Chapter 40

It’s an undeserved privilege in more ways than one. I was quite mischievous as a child, but I was also, at the same time and perhaps this goes with our own insecurities, is that I was quite a fearful child. I had – I’m going to go back and forth between the fear and mischievous behavior – but I think I probably still hold the record for the...

Sermon on Nov 30, 2014

Isaiah 40:1-8

This evening I’d like to think a bit, though I’m not a merchant, I’d like to think a bit about Christmas.  I know you don’t like to think about Christmas right now, but it’s upon us.  And pardon the expression, but I’d like to not see us belly-flop into Christmas.  You know how to belly-flop into Christmas?  All of a sudden Christmas Day is upon you and you...

Christmas Series: Getting a Handel on Christmas

Sermon on Feb 14, 2003

Isaiah 40:1-5

Isaiah 40:1-5 Comfort Ye My People Dr. Derek Thomas

Turn with me now to the text that we've just heard sung so beautifully from Isaiah chapter 40 and verses 1 through 5. Before we read the passage together, let's look to God and ask for His blessing. Let's pray.

Our Father in heaven, this is Your word; You caused it to be written. We thank You for the...

Chapter 42

An Ancient Christmas: The Coming of Jesus in the Old Testament

Sermon on Dec 16, 2012

Isaiah 42:1-13

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Isaiah 42, as we continue our series, “An Ancient Christmas: The Coming of Jesus in the Old Testament.” You will have perhaps noticed a pattern in the messages from the Old Testament, a pattern of problem, promise, and provision. We see that, for instance, as we looked at the very first in this series, the...

Sermon on Nov 10, 2019

Isaiah 42

And I wish we had the time this passage really deserves to dwell on those details, but we simply don’t. All we can really do is pick out a few of the prominent details and meditate on them. Let me mention three for your consideration this evening. First, I want you to see that the Father delights in His servant. The Father delights in His servant. Secondly, the...

The Sovereignty of God vs. The Sovereignty of Man”

Isaiah 42:5

Dr. Tom Elkin

Tonight we're going to begin a series on The Natural Man's Struggle with Reformed Theology. Yes, I'm playing psychologist a little bit here, so please indulge me. I'm going to be using some of my...

Chapter 43

Sermon on Jul 9, 2017

Isaiah 43:1-7

What is "The Peace of Belonging"? Well, maybe we should start by defining, "What is belonging?" Let me tell you where I want to go in this sermon today. We want to talk about what is belonging, we want to talk about what belonging looks like, and then we’ll finish with asking the question, “Why does it matter?”

Chapter 44

Let us pray.

Almighty and everlasting God, as we come again before Your Word, we recognize our own impoverished condition in which we need to humbly implore You for the aid of the Holy Spirit to understand. And so we pray that the Spirit would cause Christ to increase and the one who speaks to decrease, all for Your glory. We ask it in...

Chapter 45

Chapter 50

Christmas Series: Getting a Handel on Christmas

Sermon on Dec 18, 2003

Isaiah 50:6

Father, again, we come into Your presence. This is Your word You caused it to be written. Come Holy Spirit and illuminate these words to us. They speak so tenderly and deeply of Christ and it is Him who we would see. We would indeed see none but Jesus only. We ask it in Jesus’ name, amen.

This is God's word:

I gave...
