Prophets, priests, and kings once served in the roles of temporary mediators between God and men. But they were all shadows of a permanent mediator who was to come. We explore the Incarnation of God in Jesus, how He is the perfection of Prophethood, Priesthood, and Kingship, and the implications of His position as mediator.
We have 4 stories intertwined in Hosea 2: Hosea and Gomer, Achan’s sin at Jericho, the Exodus, and God’s relationship to Israel. But the 5th story in this text is yours. It’s what this text is telling you about how you have treated God and what He has done in response.
In the 3rd of three sermons on The Ten Commandments, we explore how the New Testament handles the 10 which were the basis of Israel’s Ethical Standards. Do they have relevance to the Christian? And if so, then what advantage do we have of living them out?
It’s so easy to fall into a church culture of comparison when it comes to spiritual gifts. We examine an account from Israel’s time in the wilderness which anticipates some of the issues at work many years later in Corinth.
The question “Why?” is asked of God at least 25 times in the biblical psalms. 3 of these occur in Psalm 10. We journey to 1976 Namibia to hear a voice echoing Psalm 10, facing the schemes of the wicked and asking the same questions asked in the psalm. We walk through Psalm 10’s darkness and its glimmers of light.
