Sermon Recap for March 9

The Morning Service was our annual joint meeting with Providence Missionary Baptist Church. It was a good time, and we once again talked about getting together more than once a year. Hopefully we’ll actually make that happen this time.

Concluding Notes:
1. I do have the rough audio of Sunday Night’s Q&A session, but I’m not sure yet that it’s useful for posting.
2. I am not sure how to improve video quality with the current equipment.

4. Yes, I think I’m not getting a lot of plays on each service or hits on each blog, but in total it’s a decent reach. A social media expert might suggest changes, but this is free-to-cheap, where I have to live right now.
Extended Outline for Morning Sermon:
Looking at Numbers 14:17-19:
“But now, I pray, let the power of the Lord be great, just as You have declared,
18  ‘The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations.’
19  “Pardon, I pray, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness, just as You also have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.” New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (LaHabra, CA: The Lockman Foundation, 1995), Nu 14:17–19.
Concept: our responsibility to intercede for people:
1. Uphold the righteousness of God
2. Uphold the mercy of God
3. Plead for time to repent
4. Call the people to repent
5. Seek God’s strength for the task
Chapter 1: Intercede for the People: Numbers 14:17-19
1.1. Scripture intro
Looking at Numbers 14:17-19:
"But now, I pray, let the power of the Lord be great, just as You have declared,
     18   'The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations.'
     19   "Pardon, I pray, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness, just as You also have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now."1

1.2. Intro
Have you watched the news this week? Updates on the world around you? Or even just on our fair state?
It's a mess out there. Despite expectations that the world of warfare would pass away, we see it growing stronger and stronger--Russians in the Crimea; crime in the streets...
(Alternate intro would reference the Charge of the Light Brigade--into the valley death rode the 600.)
1.3. Scripture Background: The Spies Report
The people of Israel were rejecting the promise of God--
Rejecting His gifts of grace, His gift of a land...His gift of Freedom!
Why?
Because of fear
Because of a lack of faith
Because they knew an old oppression and somehow preferred it to an uncertain liberty
1.4. Intercession for the Lost
There are those who need more time before God's justice removes them--let them have time to hear and respond
1.5. Intercession for the weak and wavering
There are those who need time to shore up and strengthen;
There are those who need protection from destructive wolves around them
1.6. Intercession for the Faithful
There are those who need strength to rescue the perishing
There are those who need aid to do so
There are those who need time to rescue the perishing.
1.7. Conclusion
Intercession in recognition of the Glory of God and in willingness to take on ourselves the responsibility of seeing prayers answered--all through the power of God
Because the whole earth will be filled with the glory of YHWH (Numbers 14:20-21)_
