Love one another

We are going to leave our study in the book of Acts this week to look at this psalm. This is a psalm of ascents, which means it was likely sung by Israelites as they neared Jerusalem on their way up to worship the Lord at an annual feast, such as Passover.

DUNCAN/Brought very low

Turn with me to Psalm 79. Let me remind you of the context for this Psalm. Jerusalem has been destroyed. Many of the children of Israel have been taken off into captivity. Hundreds – thousands – have been left dead in the streets.

THOMAS/Willis vs. Wade vs. euphemisms

During questioning of Fulton County, Georgia prosecutor Nathan Wade about his “relationship” with District Attorney Fani Willis there was a moment that cut through all the euphemisms we have become accustomed to when it comes to human behavior.

DUNCAN/We will tell the next generation

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 78 as we continue to work through the Third Book of the Psalms together. This is one of the longer Psalms in the Psalter, but the outline provided will give some sense of where Asaph is going in this Psalm.

THOMAS/The unmaking of a president

Beginning with the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 and through the re-election of Richard Nixon in 1972, political journalist and biographer Theodore H. White wrote books called “The Making of a President.” Were he alive today he might title one about Joe Biden “The Unmaking of a President.”

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Bringing good out of evil

It is the wisdom of God to bring good out of evil. The ultimate example of that is the Son of God being put to death by men, but God accomplishing the salvation of sinners through it. In the life of a believer the Lord also brings good out of bad.

DUNCAN/Comfort in trouble

If you have your Bibles, please open them with me to Psalm 77. This Psalm is one of those Psalms that teaches us how to live the Christian life in the darkest of days.

THOMAS/Let us all pray

The number of President Biden’s gaffes and flip-flops on issues would fill a book, but he combined several categories of verbal meanderings at last week’s National Prayer Breakfast.

EDITORIAL/Supervisor Gerald Fauci

District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen spoke to the Madison County Republican Women last week and, predictably, talked out of both sides of his mouth. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Jesus sought, then taught sinners

Psalm 110 is one of the most quoted psalms in the New Testament. It teaches the divinity of the promised Messiah. That is an incredibly deep truth to contemplate. But what we see is that the Bible clearly teaches that Christ is the eternal Son of God, very God of very God.

DUNCAN/Knowing God

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 76. 200,000 Assyrians were hard pressed against Israel. Hezekiah lifted up a prayer, and the Lord answered,

THOMAS/Democrats and abortion

With the economy, the border and foreign policy not working for them in this election cycle, Democrats are counting on the abortion issue to save their hides in November.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/God’s love for His people

Song of Songs should be taken allegorically or typically. This means it was inspired by the Holy Spirit to depict the relationship between Christ and His church. To the Christian, Christ is glorious, a great King and Savior; to Christ, the church is beautiful, the people He loves and saves. 

DUNCAN/Joy in God’s great reversals

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to Psalm 75 as we continue our way through the Book of the Psalms. In Psalm 75, the psalmist rejoices in God’s providential rule over the world. We will look at this Psalm in three parts.

THOMAS/Democrats and abortion

With the economy, the border and foreign policy not working for them in this election cycle, Democrats are counting on the abortion issue to save their hides in November.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Glorify God and enjoy Him forever

The purpose or goal of redemption is that we might glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

DUNCAN/Disaster!

If you have your Bibles turn with me to Psalm 74. The circumstance of this Psalm is the Babylonian destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, one of the most cataclysmic events in the history of Israel.

THOMAS/Republicans should change their logo

“Donald, you’re not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency. That’s not going to happen.”

DUNCAN/The ends

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Psalm 73. This great Psalm is the story of a bitter and even a despairing search by a believer in Israel, which has now been rewarded far beyond all of his expectations.

THOMAS/Harvard president symptom not cause

The resignation of Harvard president Claudine Gay after “facing national backlash for her administration’s response to Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack and allegations of plagiarism in her scholarly work” does not solve the problem at America’s oldest college and other elite schools.
