We realise that reading a list of genealogies isn’t that interesting to most of us, unless we are big into history and family trees. But for Matthew, he felt the need to demonstrate the historicity of the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew traced Jesus lineage all the way back to David, and even further back to Abraham. In today’s sermon we only covered vv.1-17, and no doubt may have to come back to these verses. But, this message will help as a springboard into the rest of what Matthew has to say in......

Whatever circumstances that we face in life as a Christian, we can be confident because “we know” that all thingswork together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (See Rom.8:28). Today we briefly considered the life of Joseph and how although his own brothers plotted evil against him, God was at the same time meaning or planning it for good (See Gen.50:20). Later we saw that the events that unfolded in the Life and Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ were what He had foretold, and were also fulfilling ‘the determined purpose and foreknowledge......

We weren’t expecting another Psalm today, but we were able to squeeze one more into the series. Commentators are unsure as to the circumstances of David writing this “Michtam”, but there are at least two possibilities: David was facing an incurable or deadly disease that had attacked his flesh. Therefore he speaks of God being the one who will keep him safe. He also says his flesh has hope, and that the LORD will show him the path to life or the way to life, or the way back to health (v.11a). David was prophesying......

In this Psalm David asks a couple of question in v.1, which he takes the rest of the Psalm to answer. Actually when David asked, “LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?” he was referring to some of the earthly dwelling places of God, and ultimately to God’s heavenly abode. But who can dwell or abide there? David then lists a few of the things that would be required of such a person (See vv.2-5b), and which are basic requirements for living as an Israelite under the......

How many times have you come across people who say, “There is no God!” ? We have met them especially when doing street evangelism. But why do people deny the existence of God? we believe that Ps.14:1 reveals the answer. It is because they are corrupt and love their sinful lives! Of course we were all once like that, as was the whole earth in the days of Noah (See Gen.6:5, 11-12), and yet in the midst of it all we read that Noah found or obtained Grace from the LORD (Gen.6:8). We have every reason......

Have you ever wondered why prayers are taking so long to be answered? Ever wondered why you can’t sense the presence of the LORD? David did. He asked 4 times in Ps.13:1-2 “How long?” But by the end of this short psalm, in vv.5-6 he ends on a brighter note: “But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me.” If David could say that under the Old Covenant, how much more should we be able to sing and......

Look around you today and maybe like David you’ll be concerned because of a lack of godly men and women, and a scarcity of the faithful! Where have they gone? Have they disappeared? Maybe we just need to come forth and let our light shine in the midst of this darkened world. Yes we are held or kept and preserved by the power of God (See Psalm 12:7; John 10:26-30), but whilst we are still in this world, we need to share our blessed hope with others who have no hope! To watch......

In this Psalm David’s friends or close advisors appear to be giving him the advise to run, because the enemy is about to attack. But David has stated that he has put his trust in the LORD (v.1). David asked a very important question in v.3, saying, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” We see the foundations of our society and the Biblical principles upon which our societies are built, under constant attack. We need to remain confident in the LORD and His righteousness, since He is working out......

This is “Part 2” of Psalms 9-10, and we pointed out that they are one Psalm in the Hebrew Bible. The first half (Psalm 9) speaks of God’s Judgements on The Nations, whereas the second half (Psalm 10) speaks of God’s Judgements in general. The bottom line reason why wicked people do the things they do is that they don’t think or have convinced themselves that they will never be held accountable for the way they have lived. Some verses from Luke 12:16-21and Heb.4:12-13 might sober such people up. David’s King, and our King Jesus, will......
