WONDERFUL COUNSELOR & MIGHTY GOD (Part 2)

Sermon Handout As a congregation, we do not commemorate December 25 as the birth of Jesus because the Bible does not indicate when Jesus was born nor does it instruct us to celebrate the day of His birth. However, we cannot ignore the fact that many people are thinking about Jesus during this time of the year. Thus, as the birth of Jesus is on people’s minds, whether intentionally or unintentionally, let us answer the question posed by the song…

The Last Ever Battle

After the Hallelujah chorus praises God for who He is and what He has done (Revelation 19:1-2), attention turns to what God is going to do. Revelation chapters 19 through 22 address what God will do when Jesus returns, and these chapters do so by focusing on three primary metaphors: 1) The Best Ever Wedding, 2) The Last Ever Battle, and 3) The Forever City. Tonight we will explore the last ever battle to discover what has happened or will…

The Best Ever Wedding

After the Hallelujah chorus praises God for who He is and what He has done (Revelation 19:1-2), attention turns to what God is going to do. Revelation chapters 19 through 22 address what God will do when Jesus returns, and these chapters do so by focusing on three primary metaphors: 1) the best ever wedding, 2) the last ever battle, and 3) the forever city. Tonight we will explore the best ever wedding to identify who the Groom’s bride is…

The God Who Sees Like Us

Job once asked God, “Have you eyes of flesh? Do you see as man sees?” (Job 10:4). In other words, Job was challenging God’s ability to understand what it is like to be human. But Job’s question is no longer valid because God, through Jesus, has experienced life as a human. That is why Jesus was called “Immanuel,” which means “God with us” (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). But how could deity fully appreciate life in the confines of humanity? Paul…

The God Who Sees Our Needs

As Jesus prepared to teach His disciples how to pray He instructed them to not be like the “heathens” who “use vain repetitions” and want to “be heard for their many words” because “your father knows what you need before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:7-8). Later in the same chapter Jesus instructed us to “not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’…For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these…

The God Who Sees Our Sin

In Matthew 6 Jesus instructed His audience to eliminate showmanship from their giving, prayers, and fasting then told them to give “in secret,” pray “in secret,” and fast “in secret” so that “you Father who sees in secret will…reward you openly” (6:4, 6, 18). From Jesus’ instructions not only do we learn about the importance of humility but we also learn about the omniscience of God. This is an important characteristic of God for us to acknowledge because we often…

The God Who Sees Potential

In Genesis 16:13, Hagar referred to God as El-Roi, which means “the God-Who-Sees.” Her title for God is appropriate since Scripture is filled with references to God’s omniscient vision. In 1 Samuel 16:7 when Samuel was sent to anoint Saul’s successor as king, God indicated that He “sees not as man sees” because He “looks on the heart.” In Hebrews 4:13 we are told that “no creature is hidden from [God’s] sight, but all are naked and exposed to the…
