Beyond the evil that men do in this world, there is the wrath that God pours out - the wrath of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ. Why does God reveal so clearly in his Word the reality of the final judgement that is to to come?
The history of the church is littered with people who have been blessed by God yet have rejected Him and fallen away. What can we learn from Chapter 36 about Esau and the list of his descendants?
What are the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse? What is the relationship between God and this world? The whole of human history, both bad and good, is in God's hands. Listen to Rev Paul Gibson preach on the fact that Christ is sovereign over all that unfolds.
We can see patterns in how God deals with Jacob and his family that apply in the same way to how He deals with His Church throughout all ages. Rev Paul Gibson preaches on Genesis 35 and draws three valuable lessons for us all today.
Luke 9:57-62; Numbers 13:25-14:12

John's vision in Chapter 5 of Revelation gives a unique glimpse into what makes Jesus Christ so special and why He alone is worthy.

"O LORD, I clove the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells." Rev Robert Walker preaching on Psalm 26:8
The powerful vision in Revelation chapter 4 gives us a glimpse of the the glory of God, and His Son, as he sits on this throne, ruling and reigning now and prepares us to worship him, serve him and persevere. In this sermon, Rev Paul Gibson explains four ways that our minds are shaped by what God is like.
The changed man that Jacob had become, when he was reconciled with Esau, is evidence of the work of God's grace in his life. His demeanour, his generosity and his renewed commitment to God's purposes are just some of the marks of transformation we can witness in his life.
Christ is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
The love of God for his people is demonstrated by the distinct love of both the Father (giving the cup) and the Son (drinking the cup.) Rev Paul Gibson preached this evening on verse 11 of John chapter 18

Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”
