Sermons about Israel
Sister Susan talks about why we are named The Olive Tree, and how we can pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Limitations.... imposed or chosen... do not have to be the end of courage and goals. Circumstances either expose our source of strength or expose our lack of foundation. Which is your case? What is your choice?
The Other Trees--If Israel is the Fig Tree, then certainly the other nations are the other trees. Listen and learn how other nations in the world are falling into place in these last days and understand that the coming of the Lord is near!
The rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948 is the key to understanding all Biblical prophecy. Listen and see how it was predicted by God--even the exact year it would take place!
Sometimes, we find ourselves in a situation where the only options are bad and worse – moments when no answer or response is the good one. So we try to make the best of the situation, and hope it works out… and sometimes it doesn’t. So we wonder, could we have done something to create better options for ourselves? When we face our fears early on, might we prevent these situations?
Life is not always fun, decisions are not always simple to make, and it is often easier to take your toys and go home than it is to ride out the tough times. As many of us encounter these moments in our lives, we will likely let go of whatever is causing this difficult trial in our life and move on… but what could happen if we hold out? Is it possible for the joy of the coming morning to be worth the anguish of the midnights in our life?
From God’s perspective, accountability is a fact of life, if not in this life, then in the next. We can be assured that, in some sense, we will be held accountable for our choices. In Luke 20:9-19, Jesus declared that Israel would be held accountable by God for their persistent sins, rejection of the prophets, and imminent killing of the Son, Jesus Himself. Jesus' teaching illustrates the broader principle that God holds people accountable. For, God has been good to us. Yet, we persist in sin, rejecting God’s warnings. God even sent His own Son to redeem us. Finally, as in Jesus' day, so now, judgment awaits those who reject the Son. So, live wisely as one who will give an account. Receive the Son. Produce fruit.
What did the Israelites face when they looked into the land of Canaan? Transition, change and how to anticipate the future.
The Story of Manasseh and God's Grace. "He removed the foreign gods and images from the Lord's temple and all the altars he had built on the hill of the Lord's temple and in Jerusalem; he threw them outside the city. He erected the altar of the Lord and offered on it peace offerings and thank offerings. He told the people of Judah to serve the Lord God of Israel."
