Sermons about Israel
Why do bad things happen? Does God allow tragedies to happen? Is God in control? This sermon seeks to analyze Amos 3:1-8, where God rebukes Israel for their wickedness and adulterous ways. God affirms that He is in complete control, and regardless of life's experiences and tragedies, He allows all things for his good purposes.
Isaiah was sent to tell them not only what their bad choices had brought about but also to share with them the divine hope that was present in their exile. Was it only their land and the temple that gave them their spiritual identities? Who would God be to them in exile? The people had to ask difficult questions about their covenant with God, and the results of this difficult season of exile are beautiful examples of God’s power to restore His people. This power to make broken things beautiful remains true for us today.
Jesus came to be our Rescuer! Believe Him! Once you've been rescued, join Jesus' volunteer rescue team!
In the Old Testament God had chosen a man by the name of Abraham to be the "father of many nations." God promised him that he would be a blessing to everyone on earth. Jesus was the Messiah; He was the King, but not only to Israel (the people who came from Abraham), but for the entire world (everyone who believes in Him). Paul wrote that there was a time that people who were not a Jew were cut off from God, but because of Jesus, the Jews and Gentiles were brought together. No longer were there citizens of Israel and citizens of other countries. Now, everyone who trusts in Jesus are citizens of one Kingdom: God's Kingdom. Israel had its laws, and the other countries had their laws, but now there is the Law of Jesus. All that was promised to Israel is fulfilled in Jesus, and so anyone who trusts in Jesus gets to receive all the promises because there are no longer two different types of people (Jews and Gentiles), but one new man in one NEW KINGDOM!
It's Senior Sunday, where we honor the graduating seniors at Northwest. Nathan McBroom is teaching on the challenges that will face our young people in the world that awaits them and gives them important advice on how to stay the course and remain faithful. He makes a great connection to Israel travelling over the Jordan and into the Promised Land where they received a land of great blessing but also lived among people that would present great challenges.
