Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Beginnings of Culture

The Two Seeds (The Spread of Sin into the World)

In Genesis, chapter 4 we have seen God's glorious work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. Specifically the creation of Adam and Eve and the covenant relationship that God established with them in Genesis 2. We have seen that sad picture of the fall in Genesis 3 and in our study of the first half of Genesis 4, we've already begun to see the effects of the fall...

Reaping the Whirlwind

Gracious Spirit, Dwell with Me

The Two Seeds (The Spread of Sin into the World)

Please turn in your Bibles to Genesis 4 as we continue our study in the foundations of the faith. We have seen God's glorious work of creation accounted in Genesis 1. We've seen more specifically the special relationship established between the Lord and Adam in Genesis 2 and the stipulations of the covenant of works in Genesis 3. We have seen that fellowship disrupted, and really from Genesis...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

Please turn with me to Genesis, chapter 3. We’re continuing our study in the book of Genesis, those foundations of the faith that are set forth there. And last week we looked specifically at the account of Adam's fall in Genesis 3, verses 1 through 13, and we saw there in that account several important things about the nature of sin. For one thing we saw that sin...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Fall 1

The Darkest Hour

(The Entry of Sin into the World)

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 3 and we're going to attend to the first thirteen verses. Genesis 3. Hear the word of the living God:

Genesis 3:1-7

Our Father, we bow before You in Your sovereignty and in your goodness as we read Your word, and we ask that You would enlighten our own...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 2. We have, for the last few weeks, been looking at the creation ordinances as they are recorded in chapters 1 and 2. We have outlined those ordinances in four parts. We've said that there are many legitimate ways to number the creation ordinances. Sometimes you hear three names. John Murray finds seven...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 2, and we’ll begin in verse 4 this evening. We have reviewed Genesis 1 saying that the first two verses of that book bring us face to face with the ultimate reality, the one true God. And then the remainder of Genesis 1 tells us the sovereignty of God in creation as He...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 2. These are perhaps words you thought you’d probably never hear. Genesis, chapter 2. Let me review for you just a little of what we've done as we've looked at Genesis, chapter 1 together. We've already said that Genesis lays the foundation, not simply for the Exodus, but for the whole of the...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis chapter 1 and verse 26. Last week we focused on the fact that man is created in the image of God. What we tried to do was briefly define what that means. We use that phrase a lot. We talk about being in the image of God and yet sometimes we have a little...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn again to Genesis, chapter 1. We’ll begin tonight in verse 24 as we zero in on the sixth day. We've already said that Genesis lays the groundwork, the foundation not only for the book of Exodus, not only the rest of the Old Testament, but for all of the Scriptures. We've said that for the first two verses...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to the very first chapter again, Genesis, chapter 1. One of the elders said to me, given the fact that we took two weeks to cover verses 1 and 2, that we were all going to be dead before I finished the book of Genesis. So we're going to see how far we can get tonight...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn again with me to Genesis, chapter 1, and we’ll look again at the first couple of verses. We said as we started our study that Genesis means origins or beginnings and it lays the groundwork not only for the book of Exodus but for the rest of scripture. The principles, the foundation that is set forth there is...

Daniel

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Daniel, chapter 12. Tonight we come to the last chapter of Daniel and the conclusion of the study of this great book. We have observed a number of times now that Daniel 1 through 6 records God's sovereignty in the life of Daniel, and Daniel 7 through 12 gives us a glimpse of the spiritual realities that lie behind his...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, the 11th chapter. We have observed a number of times now that Daniel 1 through 6 contains a sort of spiritual biography of Daniel, showing God's sovereignty in his life. But as we move from the first six chapters of Daniel, to the 7th through the 12th chapters of Daniel, we move behind Daniel's...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 10. In Daniel, chapter 10, beginning in verse 1 we see a vision recorded for us. We said last week as we look at Daniel 1 through 6, we have somewhat of a partial biography of Daniel. But then when we moved to Daniel, chapters 7 through 12, we moved to the spiritual...

Daniel

As we continue our study of the great prophecy of Daniel, I'd remind you again that in the first six chapters of Daniel, we saw somewhat of a spiritual biography of this man as he was placed in crisis after crisis, and as he responded by the strength of God's grace in such a way to honor the Lord. And we've already said that when you move from...

Daniel

I'd invite you to turn with me in your Bibles to Daniel, chapter 8, as we continue our study of this great book. We said last week we've entered into the second half of the book. When we moved to Daniel, chapter 7, the vision has expanded as the first six chapters of the book are basically a biography of Daniel and his friends explaining their own individual...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 7, as we continue our study through this great book. We come tonight to the 7th chapter which introduces us into the second section of the book. You’ll remember that we've already said that part of this book is written in Hebrew, and part of this book is written in Aramaic. The Aramaic...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I would invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 6, as we continue our study in this great book of the Old Testament. Daniel, chapter 6. Let us hear God's holy and inspired and inerrant word.

Daniel 6

We have noted all along the theme of God's sovereignty in the first half of the book of Daniel...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Daniel, chapter 5. We’re in Daniel and we're contemplating a valiant stand which the aged Daniel makes against Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, and it is perhaps a word of encouragement for Christians today who are facing opposition for the Lord in their own lives individually and corporately, up against overwhelming odds, up against times...

Daniel

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to the 4th chapter of Daniel. We have said throughout our study of this great book that a central question in the book of Daniel is the issue, How can the Christian sing the Lord's song in a strange land? And as we live in a land which is stranger and stranger to us...
