Latest Sermon - "God's Door In Disaster" -- --
Here's my message - and it's personal to you tonight: the circumstances that you might find yourself in right now may not be, probably are not of your own choosing. Just like Esther, there are things that are out of your control. I don't think you could say about Esther that it was God's will for her to go through all these tragic circumstances. What I mean by that is: we couldn't say this is what God wanted for her, do you understand? God doesn't want people to go through such tragedy and godlessness, and yet the miracle of God's sovereignty is that God works His will through these types of things. To put it another way: God is not bent on getting His way, but He always has His way in the end.
You might find yourself, tonight, in godless circumstances. Maybe it's a marriage, maybe it's your employment, maybe it's family in some shape or form. Whatever it is, you didn't choose it, you would never have chosen it. Now please don't misunderstand what I'm saying here tonight: I'm not talking about deliberately making godless choices, I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about circumstances that are completely and utterly out of your control and remit. My message to you from the Lord tonight, and I believe there is a prophetic aspect to this: God is saying to you tonight, 'You need to look for God's door in this disaster' - God's door of opportunity! You might want to call it 'God's door of escape'... [Listen or read more...]
Israel: A Prince With God
by F.B. Meyer
From F.B. Meyer’s outstanding Biblical biographies series of the great men of faith, here is the challenging story of Jacob, who God named Israel. His re-telling of the life of Jacob is an exciting and rewarding read. You will gain many helpful insights and spiritual lessons as you read and digest these pages written by a master of the spiritual life.
The life of Israel vividly reveals the redemptive power of God in any person. Jacob, the trickster, supplanter and conniver became 'Israel: A Prince with God'. F.B. Meyer does not hide or try to explain away Jacob's imperfections; instead, Meyer uses them to illustrate the transformative work of God over the life of a man as difficult as Jacob. Jacob, who wrestled all night with God, stole his brother's birthright and blessing and bargained a fortune and a wife from Laban, God renamed 'Israel: a prince with God'. There is comfort to us in Jacob's imperfections. They reveal that 'the love of God is not determined by what it finds in man', and that 'the saints of Bible story were men of like passions with ourselves; and if God was able to shape materials so rough into vessels so fair, there is hope that He will not fail nor be discouraged until He has done the like for us'.
Meyer states that: 'There was too much self-hood in Jacob; as there is in us. This must be broken down, and put in the place of death. The I-life must be crucified before the Christ-life can take its place. The sinews of the old nature must be utterly shriveled; that the new nature, whose only strength is to cling, may be manifested in power'.
One of the greatly loved preachers of his day, Frederick Brotherton Meyer was a pastor, author, Bible teacher and evangelist. He was born in London in 1847 and grew up in a Christian home. In 1895 he went to Christ Church in London, with only 100 attending. Within two years he was preaching regularly to over 2,000. He remained there for fifteen years and then began a ministry of conference preaching and evangelism, traveling to South Africa and the Far East on mission endeavors. He returned to England to pastor for several years before he died in 1929.
