Mr Andrew Shrimpton continues his series through the book of Haggai.
"Be strong, all you people of the land, declares the LORD. Work, for I am with you, declares the LORD of hosts, according to the covenant that I made with you when you came out of Egypt. My Spirit remains in your midst. Fear not. For thus says the LORD of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of hosts. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares the LORD of hosts. The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts. And in this place I will give peace, declares the LORD of hosts.'"
"Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness..."
The pursuit of godliness is a duty for every Christian. Godliness is pursued through spiritual discipline. Rev Robert Walker preaches on 1 Timothy 4:7
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight." This evening's sermon was preached by Rev Ross Macaskill.
Why is the blood of Christ so vitally important? Rev Paul Gibson preaching on 1 Peter 1:18-19 shows 3 vital ways that the blood is applied to the lives of God's covenant people.
A message on Isaiah 40 preached at the funeral of Isabella Morrison (Ishbel) at Knox Church Perth on Friday 29th October, 2021
Mr Will Lind explains how it pleases God to hide the things of God from the wise, the proud, the sophisticates and the know-it-alls, yet to reveal them to ordinary people. If you know God today, it's because God the Son has revealed him to you. You can't deal with your own sin, only Christ can, and He invites us to come to Him.
"Being a connoisseur of good preaching is not a substitute for obendience." Andrew Shrimpton encourages us to recognise the voice of God in the true preaching of His Word and to respond appropriately to the Word preached.
The Book of Haggai is God speaking to a group of his believing people who have been defeated and are struggling to rebuild their nation, facing indifference and hostility. It's for people living with discouragement, surrounded by collapse. It's a book for our times.
Andrew Shrimpton asks, what are your priorities? What shapes the decisions you make?
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-24
Discipleship is a fundamental aspect of membership in the kingdom of God, and fruitfulness is it's end goal. Mr Neil White preaching on Mark 4:1-20.
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God…For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”
