Morning Sermon: Hebrews 1 (audio)




Also, here's the original version of the song from special music:



Hebrews 1

Context:

    Authorship Unknown. Or Barnabas. Or Luke. (I like David Allen’s Luke theory)

    Date: Pre-70 AD (Destruction of Temple); probably Neronian Era

    Canonical Context: Directed to Israelites/Jews, probably Jewish Christians due to its faith-affirming nature; probable during First Jewish Revolt 66-70 AD, as it has become clear Rome will win it and urging them to follow Jesus without losing heart due to the destruction of Judaism’s central concept of sacrifice and Temple


Overview: 

    Opening of Message/sermon (Hebrews reads like a set of transcribed messages)

    Superiority of Jesus in all things, is a primer for the whole book;


Reflection:

    Phrased like AMOS 3:8 (YHWH has spoken, who can but prophesy)
The Lord God has spoken, how can we not act in obedience


“If God said and you will not do it, then you either don’t believe He really said…or you don’t believe He’s really God.”


Expectation:

  1. Purification from sins (v. 3)
  2. Sufficiency of what has been said (v. 1-2)—quit adding “God told me/I felt Jesus say….” to your statements.
  3. Response! (v. 1-4, and the WHOLE OLD TESTAMENT!)


Evening Message: Some Thoughts from Philemon (audio)

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
