New Heart, New Spirit_34 Ezekiel 38:1-23The Lord's Deliverance of Israel from the Evil Prince Gog: A Picture of God Protecting His People. In Ezekiel 38, we now start to see the Jewish people returning to the land. Jews will have returned to Israel from many nations to resettle and rebuild the desolate land. They will be living in peace and security when the evil ruler Gog suddenly marches against them. Gog's massive army will descend on Israel like a storm and cover the land like a dark cloud. But keep in mind what is happening behind the scenes. God is at work, preparing to demonstrate His power to overrule these evil nations. He will arouse these evil nations to mobilize for war so that He can lead them to destruction.God has the power to overrule the evil of both nations and individuals. Whatever evil confronts us, God's omnipotent, unlimited, infinite power can conquer it. There is no limit to what God can and will do for us. He will work all things out for our good. The LORD warns us all that a day of judgment coming. And the day has already been determined. It is set, fixed. And it is inevitable. Nothing will stop God from executing justice and judgment upon earth.
How does the Spirit help, when our perseverance is weak? Romans 8:26–27 looks forward to the midweek sermon. In these two verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that the Spirit of God, Who has the mind of God, teaches us to pray for glory with certainty, even as He perfectly prays the same.
As part of Antioch Presbyterian Church's 180th Anniversary Celebration, Pastor Zachary Groff delivered an address on the congregation's history entitled, "The Story of Old Antioch Church (1843-2023): 180 Years of Proclaiming Christ at the Crossroads of Greenville & Spartanburg Counties."
If there is one thing the modern church needs today it is sound doctrine. Join us as we look into the command that Paul gave Titus 2000 years ago concerning this important topic. God's word is quick and powerful, and it is able to penetrate into people's hearts and minds.
