Latest Sermon - "The Helmet Of Salvation" -- --
Now that little word 'salvation', we use it so often in Christian experience that we can actually lose its meaning. We tend to think of salvation as meaning going to heaven when we die, or being saved from hell. I have to say to you that whilst that's part of what it is to be saved, being saved in Scripture has got an awful lot more to do with being saved from sin and being saved from this world. It does have a long-term aspect, but another word could be used for 'salvation' or 'saved', it's the word 'rescue' or 'deliver'. So you could call this helmet the helmet of deliverance, or the helmet of rescue. In Isaiah 59 verse 17 - we'll not look at it this morning, but it would be good for you to read Isaiah 59, because there it shows a picture of the Living God adorned in armour. You can correspond the pieces of the armour of God that He gives us to the actual armour that He wears Himself - so that tells us it's His armour, it's His very being that He gives to us. In verse 17 it's described as 'the helmet of God's salvation', this is God's deliverance of us and it is vital for Christian experience... [Listen or read more...]
The Christian Warrior: Wrestling With Sin, Satan, The World, And The Flesh
by Isaac Ambrose
In The Christian Warrior, Isaac Ambrose (1604-1664) provides armament and strategy to fight our tireless adversary, the devil. He begins by showing, from Ephesians 6:12, how all God's people are warriors engaged in a battle, that our enemy is both powerful and malicious, and that we must wrestle and strive hard against him.
Ambrose illustrates how Satan attacks us at different stages of life: in childhood, at our first conversion, during the prime of life, and at the time of death. Ambrose gives practical, point-by-point advice throughout the book on how to cope with these attacks. He illustrates how Satan attempts to foil the believer coming to Christ at each stage of his conversion. He then shows how Satan tries to convince the doubting believer that his conversion is not genuine, and how to answer those arguments. He continues by showing how to endure persecution, how to resist temptations of the flesh (lust, pride, anger, condemning others, dishonest gain), and how Satan attempts to exploit the special vulnerabilities of both weak and strong Christians. He concludes by preparing the believer for 'the final battle' in the hour of his death (which is often his most intense time of attack), by illustrating how to avoid the extremes of presumption and despair.
Even readers not accustomed to Puritan works will find Ambrose's warm and engaging style both eminently useful and Christ-exalting. Includes a helpful biographical preface to the life and times of the author.
Available to order from Amazon in Paperback or on Kindle (US or UK), and from the publisher - 162 pages.
