Exodus

God Remembered His Covenant Exodus 2:23-25

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 2, to the end of the chapter, beginning in verse 23. In Exodus, chapter 2, verses 23 through 25 we continue a story that we’ve been looking at for a number of weeks now. As we have looked at God’s dealings in the book...

Exodus

A Failed Delivery Exodus 2:11-22

Today we come to Exodus, chapter 2, verse 11. Let’s hear God’s holy word:

"Now it came about in those days when Moses had grown up that he went out to his brethren and looked on their hard labors; and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his brethren. And so he looked this way and...

Job

Job’s friends have so far said nothing. They have sat in silence with Job as he grieved the loss of his children, and felt the pain take hold of his body (2:11-13). Sometimes it is right to say nothing.

But the situation changes from this point onwards. Job’s friends can keep their peace no more. What is it that they say? There are some subtle nuances...

Exodus

The Midwives, Who Feared God Exodus 1:15-22

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 1 again. We’re going to concentrate on the final words of the chapter, beginning in verse 15. I couldn’t help but think as Derek was preaching on Job, chapter 2 on Wednesday night, that the same struggle of Job not knowing what God’s...

Genesis 44:1-34 A Cup in the Sack

If you have Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis 44, as we continue through our study of Joseph.

Genesis 43:1-34

The Brothers Return to Egypt

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis 43.

First of all, the story of Joseph tells us how...

Genesis 41:38-57

Ruler in Egypt

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 41. In the last several weeks we have been working through the life of Joseph together.

Genesis 40:1-23 Joseph Imprisoned

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 40. As we have been looking these last few weeks in the life of Joseph it has struck us that in the overarching scheme of what God is doing in the life of Joseph, He is on the one hand telling us here in these passages...

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 38. The last couple of weeks we have been launching into a study of the final section of the book of Genesis, chapters 37 through 50, and the story of the life of Joseph. And as we have said several times, it's important to note...

Genesis 33:1-20 The Meeting of the Brothers

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 33. We’ll study this chapter tonight which recounts the meeting between Esau and Jacob. This much-anticipated reunion of the brothers. Jacob wasn't much anticipating a positive experience in this reunion. And so there has been some tension building in the succeeding chapters as we...

Genesis 31:22-42 Laban's Pursuit

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 31. We’ll pick up with the second section of the chapter, beginning at the 22nd verse.

Genesis 31:1-21 The Flight to Canaan

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 31. Last week's study provides the backdrop for the events which will occur here in the first half of Genesis 31. Indeed the whole of Genesis 31. And so as you turn to Genesis 31, you may want to sneak a peek at Genesis...

Genesis 30:25-43

The Prosperity of Jacob

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 30, and we’ll begin in verse 25. We continue our study in the life of Jacob. And it struck me, as I was reading through this passage again this week how much God emphasizes of His providence in this section of...

Genesis 29:1-20

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis 29, as we continue our study in the life of Jacob.

Ruth 1

“Some Graces Grow Best in Winter”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Matthew

If you have your Bibles I'd  invite you to turn with me to Matthew 15.  We're in Matthew 15, and I'd like to direct your attention to  verse 21.  Verse 21 begins a new segment in Jesus' ministry.  The great Galilean ministry is done.  It ends in verse 20 of chapter 15.  And now Jesus enters into a distinctively Gentile  territory.  He is now in the region of...
