The LORD Builds David’s House

Text: 2 Samuel 7:1-17
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 27, 2015

Last week we looked at how Jesus’ birth resembles the birth of Abraham’s son, Isaac, and fulfills God’s promise to Abraham.  This week we will see how Jesus’ birth fulfills the Lord’s promise to David.  This passage is also appropriate as we look ahead to a new year in which we may have great hopes and expectations.  David had a great plan to build a house for the Lord.  The Lord, however had a different plan which was to build a great house for David. While it is good to plan (Prov. 21:5) we must submit our hopes and dreams to the Lord Whose plan is always the best plan (Js. 4:13-17,  Rom. 8:28, Prov. 16:9).

The Miraculous Birth of the Promised Son

Text: Hebrews 11:11-12
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 20, 2015

The birth of Christ was both foretold and foreshadowed.  Hebrews 11 tells of the miraculous birth of Isaac (when Abraham and Sarah were way beyond childbearing years) through whom God’s promises to Abraham came to pass.  The LORD designed Isaac’s birth to be a picture of the birth of Christ Who is the true Seed of Abraham through Whom all of God’s promises to Abraham are fulfilled.  There is a sense in which we who believe are also miracle babies and children of Abraham.

Please read Romans 4:13-25, Genesis 18:1-16 and Genesis 21:1-8 before listening to this sermon.

Heaven! – Part 2

Text: Various
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 13, 2015

Last week we learned that if we die before Jesus returns we will experience heaven in two parts.  When we die our souls will immediately be with the Lord (part 1).  When Christ returns our souls will be reunited with our bodies and dwell in the new heavens and the new earth.

Many of us wonder what heaven will be like.  While there are some things about heaven which we cannot yet know or comprehend (Deut. 29:29), the Bible tell us much of what our life will be like in the new heavens and the new earth.  God willing, we also will learn about how our knowledge of our future destiny should affect our present lives.

Please read Revelation 21-22 before listening to this sermon.

Heaven! – Part 1

Text: Various
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: December 6, 2015

Last week we saw how Peter, James and John experienced a taste of heaven at the Transfiguration.  This week (and next, and maybe one more after that) we will spend some more time learning about heaven.

When Caroline and I learned that our company was sending us to Saudi Arabia in 1981 we put some effort into learning about our new (temporary) home – the weather, the house in which we would live, opportunities for shopping, etc.  Those of us who are in Christ anticipate spending forever in our new heavenly home.  What can we know of what our lives will be like?  How can we get ready.

Please read 1 Thess. 4:13-17 before listening to this sermon.
