The Beginnings of Abraham

We start a new mini-series tonight in the month of October called, “The Beginnings of Abraham.” And our first story in the series is from Genesis chapter 11, verses 1 to 9, which is the tower of Babel, which actually tells the story of the beginning of Abraham’s family. But we’re not going to talk about that this week; we’re going to spend two weeks on the tower...

Prepare Him Room

Well, I do hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas so far. I’m very glad you’re with us this Lord’s Day Morning to celebrate the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and to worship together with us. As you will know, if you have been with us in the month of December, in the weeks that have led up to Christmas we have been considering the teaching...

Behold, A Throne

That was, of course, Macbeth’s despairing soliloquy, his famous commentary, on what he believed was life’s pointlessness. Tomorrow and yesterday, he says, are empty things. Life is a “tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Meaning and purpose are an illusion. For Shakespeare, Macbeth is a tragic figure, so fascinating precisely because in his context Macbeth was so extreme. His speech is as...

Last Things

Over the last few weeks we’ve been looking at a series we’ve called The Last Things, considering four themes - death, judgment, heaven, and hell. We’ve looked at death and judgment; tonight, this morning rather, we’re thinking about heaven. And then in two weeks time, next Sunday being Stewardship Sunday, two weeks time we’ll think about the last part of the series. We’ll think about hell. So...

Well good evening.  It’s good to be with you all tonight.  If you have your Bibles handy turn with me to Psalm 48.  It’s also printed on the back of your bulletin, I believe there, for you.  I love to get to sing the psalms together, especially when it works well with our text, so it’s always enjoyable to get to sing the text of Scripture that we’ll...

Zechariah Part 2: The Coming King

Now if you would, take your copy of God’s Word and turn to Zechariah chapter 14.  At one point last Lord’s Day Evening I think when we were looking at the very last verse of chapter 13 where God said, “Call on My name and I’ll answer you,” I made the comment that there are many complex portions of Scripture, not least among them in the book of...

Psalms Book 3

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 87. It's been interesting working through these Psalms in the Third Book of the Psalms, and especially these more recent ones: the constantly recurring themes of God's people's love for the people of God; God's delight in His people; the importance of the body of Christ, of the church. And as we look at...

Apocalypse Now!

As we have seen, the Book of Revelation is been about the triumph of God over the forces of evil. Every foe has been vanquished. Every opposition to the purposes of God has been rendered obsolete. Jesus is Lord!

This chapter continues that theme with a vision of the New Jerusalem given by "he who was seated on the throne" (21:5). The one who speaks identifies...
