Resources on Judgment Of God

Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly

So what do we learn about Micah and Micah's prophecy? Well, first we should take notice of his name. His name means, "Who is like the Lord?" from which I think we can infer at least that it was a godly family from which Micah has come and they're concerned for their child, much like the covenant parents who were having their own children baptized today, is that...

Last Things

Please take a copy of God’s Word. Turn with me to the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, chapter 14; page 1036 if you’re using one of our church Bibles. Revelation chapter 14; before we read, would you pray with me please!

O God, as we’ve opened Your Word, would You now by the Holy Spirit open our hearts and our...

Last Things

Starting last week we began a short series of sermons called “Last Things” looking at the themes of death, judgment, heaven, and hell. We don’t like to think about those sorts of things too terribly often, but your convictions about those issues have a profound influence on the way that we think about life here and now, about what really matters, about why you do what you do...

God Remembers

Now let me invite you please to take a copy of God’s holy and inerrant Word in your hands and turn to the book of Exodus, chapter 12; Exodus chapter 12 - page 53 in the church Bibles.  Before we read, let’s bow our heads as we pray.

If God is for us, who can be against us?  If God would give up His...

God Remembers

Turn in your Bibles please to Exodus chapter 7, or take one of the church Bibles and turn to page 49; Exodus chapter 7.  We’ll be reading verses 14 to the end of the chapter.  Before we do that, it is our pattern ordinarily to pause and ask for God to help us as we pray.  Would you pray with me?

Father, before us...

Zechariah Part 2: The Coming King

Please be seated. Would you take your copies of the Holy Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the prophecy of Zechariah chapter eleven. Page 798 in the church Bibles.  Before we read God’s Word would you bow your heads with me as we pray?

Oh Lord, how we are in need of a fresh word from your mouth. How prone we...

Zechariah Part 2: The Coming King

Now would you take your copies of the Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the prophecy of Zechariah, chapter 9; Zechariah chapter 9.  You can find that on page 796 in the church Bibles.  Before we read it together, let’s turn together towards the Lord and ask Him for His help as we pray.  Let’s pray.

Lord, we live in a...

Good evening.  Glad to be with y’all.  We’re looking at Daniel chapter 5 tonight.  In 1957, at the Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, Johnny Cash recorded a song he wrote about this passage, about this chapter that we’re going to read tonight.  In it he sang these lyrics, “He had concubines and wives; he called Babylon paradise.  On his throne he drank and ate, but for Belshazzar it...

Zechariah Part 1: The Coming Kingdom

Now take your Bibles please and turn with me in them to the prophecy of Zechariah, chapter 7.  Zechariah chapter 7.  We’re looking at the whole chapter together.  You’ll find it on page 794 if you’re using one of the church Bibles.  Before we read God’s Word would you please bow your heads with me as we ask for His help?  Let’s pray.

Atonement — for Past Sins

2 Samuel 21:1-14

The Reverend Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Now ever since the dramatic announcement a couple of weeks ago, I've been trying to work out how I can complete 2 Samuel by the end of May. And I've made the decision to pass over what is a story that we've heard much of its...

2 Samuel 4:1-12

“Murder Most Foul!”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Turn with me to 2 Samuel chapter 4. 2 Samuel chapter 4 — we're going to read about Ish-bosheth, the only remaining son of Saul who's been put on the throne in the northern kingdom, but as we shall see, his reign is short lived.

Before we read the passage...

I Samuel 3:1-21

“Here I Am, Lord”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

When I began this series on 1 Samuel I knew that I would have to preach a message on this very well known passage of the calling of Samuel. Now, Samuel has been born and somewhere between the age of three and four, at least in Hebrew culture, at...

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 — With God in the Wilderness:

“The Zeal of Phinehas”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Please open your Bibles to Numbers 25. The last time we were in Numbers together, we were finishing the story of Balaam. And the last we heard of Balaam (or so we thought) was in these words in Numbers 24:25 —

“Then Balaam rose and...

Numbers 21:1-9

With God in the Wilderness

“Snakebit”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

The last time we were together in Numbers, we were looking at the overwhelmingly sad and moving passage found in Numbers 20. In the midst of arduous demands of leadership in the wilderness, Moses is going to suffer family bereavement in the loss of his sister, serious opposition...

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

Psalms Book 2

As you open to Psalm 64 let me tell you how excited I am to be here this evening. Usually on Wednesday nights you can find me in the youth house with our junior high. It's going to be a welcomed thing for me to speak to you and not be dodging projectiles thrown at my head, I hope. I was just joking with Ligon yesterday about the...

Psalms Book 2

If you have Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 58, as we continue to work our way through the Second Book of the Psalms. David is still on the run, and David is reflecting on the injustice of those who are leaders, judges, rulers, people who are elders amongst the people of God, people who were to be administrators of justice, people who were...
