A trail a blood runs through the Bible, pointing the way to the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon Golgotha’s cross. In this sermon from the young evangelist Matthew Barnes, we learn that even a red string, hung in a window by Rahab, shows forth the power of the blood of Christ. The Scarlet Cord MP3 Link
In one of the most stunning events of the Old Testament, Abraham’s great faith was tested when God asked him to offer his son as a sacrifice. Abraham was a man who so trusted the Lord that even while he and Isaac made their way up the mountain, he said to his inquisitive boy, “my son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering” (Genesis 22:8).
The book of Ruth provides one of the finest examples of faith in the Bible. In this lesson from Greg Branch, we are reminded that as long as we put our trust in God and follow His will, we can climb from the lowest status in life to unparalleled potential in the Lord. The Faith of Ruth MP3 Link
The angel Gabriel was sent with the Lord’s manifold blessings to the young virgin Mary with an amazing proclamation: “You have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” (Luke 1:30-32) He Will Be Great MP3 Audio Link
In Acts chapter two, we learn of the events which transpired on Pentecost day. This was the day the apostles were given power from on high, the day they preached the gospel of the risen Jesus, & the day three thousand souls were baptized for the remission of their sins. It was a day like no other, but some people are still looking for the power of Pentecost in their lives. In this sermon, preached at the Pearl International Hotel in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, evangelist Clint De France teaches us how to benefit from the same power which was given so long ago.
Someone has said that ‘everything and everyone has a price.’ Is that true? In today’s sermon Jerry Dickinson relates the encouraging news that even in the 21st century there are people and values that are not for sale. Not For Sale MP3 Link
In the book of Numbers we read the thrilling story of how Aaron stood with a burning censer to stop the plague of the wrath of the Lord:
So Moses said to Aaron, “Take a censer and put fire in it from the altar, put incense on it, and take it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them; for wrath has gone out from the LORD. The plague has begun.” 47 Then Aaron took it as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and already the plague had begun among the people. So he put in the incense and made atonement for the people. 48 And he stood between the dead and the living; so the plague was stopped. Numbers 16:46-48 (NKJV)
Jerry Dickinson uses this story to point out some things (and some individuals) in the modern world that stand between the dead and the living. Are you one of those who is standing in the midst of a sinful people? May God bless us to do His will.
