Sermons about History
Daniel 2 deals with some of the most amazing prophecy of the whole Bible. It also shows God's power to do things through his people that no other god can do. The current world events and history are working out what God has prophesied centuries ago. We are living in the last kingdom age of this prophecy.
We all sin and fall short of the glory of God but God came down and became one of us and because he died for us we are all justified through faith. We have hope in Him. Don't dwell on past mistakes and sins but reflect on how they might serve their purpose if they drive us back into the presence of God.
A very necessary intro to the Book of Revelation, complete with historical settings.
We can render to God the things that are God's by "improving our baptism".
This message celebrates our 5 year anniversary as a church, looks at the history of Mosaic Fellowship, the events and values that developed who we are, the role PLACE has in shaping God experiences and where we see it going in the days ahead.
What happens when God steps into human history as a man? The angels sing . . .
After reading the first twenty-five chapters of Genesis, chapter twenty-six seems more than a bit familiar. What was present with Abraham is now present with Isaac; God's covenant spans generations and therefore every generation of God's people must deal with the same fundamental realities. It is all seen in our reception of and obedience to God's word, our reluctance to trust God and in those who oppose God. As the promised son of Abraham, the true "child" of the covenant, Isaac's life, among other things, helps us see what the covenant parent ought to be engaged in doing as that parent prepares their child(ren) for these covenant realities.
After John the Baptist was arrested, Jesus moved from Nazareth and went further away from Jerusalem to near the Sea of Galilee. This area was populated by a more diverse population of Jews and Gentiles, and accurately represented all of what was wrong with God's old covenant people. With John having been arrested, Jesus begins preaching the same message John preached in this region that had been the territory of the tribes of Zebulun and Naphtali, and that the prophet Isaiah identifies as dwelling in darkness and the shadow of death. It all illumines us to the character of God's kingdom that is about the reign of God that produces repentance by the preaching of God's Word.
Genesis 25:19 begins a new section in Genesis. This last main section in Genesis 25 expands on the story of Abraham and hints at what is to come. But how we interpret the events that are told about Jacob and Esau is central to all of what constitutes biblical Christianity, as the apostle Paul helps us understand in Romans 9. Paul's quote in Romans 9:13 of Malachi 1:2-3 regarding Jacob and Esau, after he quoted Genesis 25:23 reveals to us how we ought to understand the relationship Genesis 25:23 to verses 24 to 34. It reveals Yahweh as the sovereign Lord of history; the one who creates, sustains, controls, interprets, and judges all the events of human history. It is these truths that are abundantly revealed throughout Scripture and indeed all history, and we are aided in understanding these truths by the prophet Isaiah, whom the apostle Paul also relied as he wrote his letter to the Romans.
