Affliction in Verse

And so now tonight, we’ve come to the last ten verses of the book where we see what follows in the wake of Job’s repentance. It’s become something of a trend, if you’ve been at the movies lately, to see an epilogue right at the end of all the credits. You know, if you manage to stay in your seat and you don’t rush off to your car...

This congregation that received this letter – and really, the letter sounds almost like a sermon. If you’ve ever heard people quote sections of the book of Hebrews, it sounds like a sermon. It has that sermonic role. Remember how Derek, he’d start off slow, you know, and then he’d build up speed and it was just like a freight train moving down! This book has that feel...

God Reigns

Over and over again we’ve heard this particular warning every hurricane season; we heard it at the last hurricane that was threatening the east coast just recently from the governor of Florida, Rick Scott, you remember. “This storm will kill you,” he said. The message was clear. “Listen to the evacuation warning. Get yourself and your family to safety. This storm will kill you.” And yet this time...

Psalms Book 5

If you have your Bibles with you, I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 144. This psalm draws on phrases and words and ideas found in a number of other psalms, at least four, but puts them together in a unique way. It's a royal psalm; a psalm of David. It's a psalm for he and his successor kings lifted up in petition to the Lord...

Now turn with me to the eighth chapter of Romans once again as we continue our study of what we've called The Best Chapter in the Bible. We’re at the peroration of it, the closing section of it. There will be one more sermon as we finish off...

Numbers 27:12-23

Numbers — With God in the Wilderness:

“Succession Plan”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Numbers 27. Last Wednesday night we were in Numbers 26, looking at a long list of the heads of families of the tribes of Israel; and these names were being listed not only for...

Numbers 16:1-50

“Korah's Rebellion”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Here we see the some of the Levites coming to Moses and basically saying, ‘We want to be priests. We’re Levites, but we want to be priests.’ And they challenge Moses’ and Aaron's leadership, and they defame them. You be on the lookout for how they do this, both those things — they challenge...

Numbers 14:1-45

“Rebellion and Rebuke”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

…Numbers, chapter 14, we are in a section of the book in which we have repeatedly seen Israel grumble and rebel against the Lord. And if you’ll remember the passage that we quoted from the Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 10, this is precisely how he cites the activity of Israel in

Numbers 12:1-16

“Murmuring In the House”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

If you have your Bibles, let me ask you to turn with me to Numbers 12. You will remember, back in Numbers 11 — and you might want to let your eyes fall on the first fifteen verses and the last four or five verses of Numbers 11, because in Numbers...

Genesis 18:16-33

Missions Conference 2007 Intercession for a Lost World

Dr. Douglas F. Kelly

I want to talk to you a little bit about intercession for the lost, praying for a lost world, and that is from Genesis 18:16-33. I'm not going to read all of the passage, but it is Genesis...


Exodus 32:11-18 Does God Change His Mind?

Exodus, chapters 25 through 40, is a section that teaches Israel how to worship, how God is to be worshiped rightly, and in the middle, in chapter 32, we find this story about idolatry and infidelity to the living God. We've already noted that there are several huge themes that run throughout Exodus 32-34. First of all, this...


Exodus 15:22-27

The Test at Marah

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus chapter 15. When we last left Israel they were singing and dancing at the Red Sea, singing God's praises by the sea, declaring Him to be great. Now, within three days everything has changed. For the mountain top to the valley, seventy-two hours. Here...


The Spirit Intercedes For Us Romans 8:26-27

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Romans, chapter 8. This great chapter is a favorite of so many of us, and we turn to it time and again in our times of need. And no wonder, for this chapter not only shows us about the work of the Holy Spirit in...

Genesis: The Foundations of the Faith

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham)


Genesis 20:1-18

Sarah Protected

Well, for the last two weeks we have dwelt in the abyss of sin and judgment in Genesis 19 and tonight we climb out. But the view that greets us in Genesis 20 is hard. The father of the faithful when last we saw him was fervently interceding for those who were under judgment and condemnation and then was silently...
