The Twin Causes of Error – Sermon Application #2

Jan 29, 2022, News and Updates

When the Sadducees sought to put Jesus to the test, they asked Him whose wife a woman would be in heaven if she had been married to multiple men.  They asked this because they thought that it logically disproved the resurrection─ for they denied the resurrection.  Jesus responded to them saying, “Ye do err, not […]

Jesus and Corporate Prayer – Sermon Application #2

Jan 16, 2022, Sermon Applications

No man is an island, and no Christian who willfully neglects corporate prayer can thrive as God intends.  God has made the people of His church mutually dependent─ and this in such a way that unity among God’s people in corporate prayer opens the door to fresh spiritual blessing.  This is God’s intention for His […]

Jan 01, 2022, Sermon Applications

One of the divine titles ascribed to Jesus is “Wonderful” (Isa. 9:6).  The Hebrew word translated to wonderful means miraculous.  Men speak of many man-made wonders which may inspire some sense of awe, but what are these compared with the wonders of creation?  Moreover, what are the wonders of creation compared with the wonders of […]

When king Ahaz refused to ask for a sign from God which would indicate God’s coming deliverance from the Assyrians, Isaiah responded by saying, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14).  The name “Immanuel” means “God […]

  written by Pastor Vradenburgh George Frideric Handel’s oratorio – Messiah – is without doubt his “magnum opus”– his greatest work (and he had many).

As we have been learning, studying Jesus’ purposes for coming into the world lead us to meditate on many wonderful truths about our salvation!  We know that Jesus came to save us, but the glory of this salvation unfolds before us only as we continue searching the Scriptures.  In Sunday’s sermon, we examined several marvelous […]
