A Change of Attitude
A biblical defense for "Vacation"
Isaiah is one of the most beloved books in Scripture. It is an epic portrayal of sin's destruction, God's love and man's redemption.
"Suffering or Salvation?"
An introduction to the Book of Isaiah.
. In order to get the most out of this study we must take time to get to know Isaiah, the background of his day and surface some major themes of this book. Ready? Let's go!
"Ouch! That Hurts!"
. What is God's purpose for pain? How do you view the use of pain? Is "pain" bad and "pain-free" good? In Isaiah chapter one the Prophet clarifies for us God's purpose of pain and punishment.
. Do you ever think of yourself more highly than you ought to? Do you feel secretly superior to other people? Isaiah in chapter two, exposes Judah's pride and arrogance and calls them (and us) to come down off our high pedestal.
"Holy, Holy, Holy"
. Who is qualified to serve the Lord? Do you have to have a seminary degree? A certain level of Bible knowledge? Do you have to be "pretty good" person? This message looks as the three essentials required for anyone to serve the Lord.
. Speaker: Barry Million. Have you lost your joy? Is life too busy - so that you don't have time for God? In this message we learn three things to return us to a place of rejoicing in the Lord!
"The Surprising Servant"
. Palm Sunday. Senseless killings dominate the news headlines, and lead to the question "why?" Because death is so final, it comes under great scrutiny. So when Jesus decided He is going to volunteer to die - he leaves he disciples really wondering what is going on!
. Easter Sunday. Do you like to restore old cars? Homes? What about restoring a life? This message explores the results of the resurrection of Jesus Christ? A restored relationship with God and a rebuilt life!
"Who You Gonna Call?"
. Do you remember that blockbuster movie from 1984 "Ghostbusters?" God asks King Ahaz, "Who you gonna call?" Unfortunately he calls the wrong person for help. How about you? No audio available.
"From Darkness to Light"
Isaiah 8:19 - 9:7
. In the dark world around us, we long for light! Who has the power to bring light into darkness? Isaiah tells us, "For a child will be born to us..." Who is this child?
"It Comes Before the Fall."
Isaiah 13: 1-22, 14:11-17
. Chapter 13 introduces a new section in Isaiah where God is judge of the nations. Babylon is first in line to face the wrath of God. What is the great sin of Babylon, and all mankind?
"Celebrate Good Times? Come on!!"
. Chapter 22 focuses on the Valley of Vision - which is the City of Jerusalem. Rather then seeing things clearly (as on a mountain), they are in a dark valley, where they view of God is distorted. They are celebrating a victory they did not achieve, and miss the reason for God's grace.
"A Tale of Two Cities."
. Isaiah describes a City of Strength and a City of Destruction. Which will God's people chose to be? How about you? This sermon also looks more closely at the ancient City of Jerusalem. What was it like?
. Perception and reality are funny things. In this chapter Judah perceives their problem to be the Assyrian army, and they perceive the solution to be to run to Egypt for help. However, the Lord points out that they have missed the real problem and the real solution to their problem!
"Good and Angry"
Isaiah 34:1-17, 35:1-10
. These two chapters conclude a major section of the book (13-35) regarding God's judgment of the nations. Chapter 34 is about God's anger, and chapter 35, God's goodness. Are these compatible? Can you be "good and angry" and the same time?
Isaiah 36 & 37
. King Hezekiah of Judah is significantly outgunned by the Assyrian army. They assault him with one argument after another on why their trust in God, their king and their alliances will fail them. How will Hezekiah respond to such great adversity? What would you do? Audio not available.
"Don't Turn Your Blessing into a Messing"
. The most dangerous part of a mountain hike is the descent. Often after the victory of accomplishment we stumble; and this is what happened to King Hezekiah. We should all learn from this warning. Audio not available.
"Faster. Stronger. Better!"
. Out of the context of suffering and sinfulness, Isaiah is called by God to deliver a new message of Comfort! God is going to take their blunders and transform them into great blessings!
"Who's Afraid of the Big Bad..."
. What are you afraid of? Do you believe that a "fear free" life is possible? God debates the nations in a heavenly courtroom - and at stake - is our peace of mind!
"He's My Everything!"
. In this chapter we have the first "servant song" in the book - which is a specific prophecy about the ministry of Jesus Christ. While other people and things in your life are "something," Jesus is "everything!" Audio not available.
Back to the Future
Isaiah 44:25 - 45:8
. The "holy grail" of religions everywhere is predictive prophecy. If a man or woman can stand before their followers and accurately predict future events - then they can claim divine approval. Here is one of the most remarkable prophecies in the pages of Scripture - and it has implications for you and I!
"Purpose Driven Life"
. Did you read Rick Warren's book a few years ago? This passage gives a clear purpose of life - listen and then evaluate whether your life matches up with God's purpose for you!
"Time of Refocus"
. Have you ever watched all your friends being blessed, with a new job, a spouse, financial blessing - while God seemed content to let you wait? It is hard to wait on the Lord. For Judah - God wanted them to learn to focus on Him!
A Loving Invitation
. Barry Milliron. Have you ever thirsted for more to this life than the busyness of daily routines and schedules? We long to quench a spiritual thirst with things other than what can truly satisfy. This sermon reveals God's loving provision that will last forever.
"Breaking Down the Walls"
. Have you been denied access to someplace you wanted to be? How about access to God. Who is allowed close to Him, and who is not? The answer was shocking to God's people!!
"Redemption of the Culture."
Jin Hyo Lee.
"Good News to the Afflicted."
Malcolm McGregor. In Luke chapter four Jesus made the bold statement that Isaiah 61 was now fulfilled! Needless to say, this was not received well. How about you? How do you respond to Jesus and His claims?
"New Heavens and New Earth."
. Do you know that this world is not all there is? As God created the first time, so also He will create again. Isaiah details for us this amazing time in the future.
"Running Out of Options"
Isaiah 66:1-6, 22-24
. Isaiah ends his book by distilling again the main two options before God's people - suffering or salvation. What will they chose? What will you?
