These are the ten superb sayings of Christ as He finished His course, while yet He also was spoken of by Isaiah as "he who opened not His mouth." There is a time to speak and a time to be silent. Jesus perfectly observed both. What we find is that we are saved because He was silent AND we are saved because He spoke.
CURRENT EVENTS UPDATE: (1) Israel at War 11/19/2023 as the ground war in Gaza continues, actor John Voight speaks out against his daughter Joline's typical ignorance, Poland's UEFA soccer team joins Israel for 1 minute moment of silence, (2) The false false Fedsurrection of 1/6/21 continues to be exposed as we show video clips including segments of which were released by Speaker Mike Johnson from 40,000+ hours of video.
In our study, we turn our attention from Saul back to Peter who travels from Jerusalem to Lydda to heal Aeneas and then to Joppa in order to heal and raise Tabitha from the dead, all for the purpose of confirming the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and transitioning Jews from Mosaic Law to the Gospel of the grace of God.
Also Reference: 1 Chronicles 8:12, Romans 8:1-4
We can't understand the main point of a Proverb if we miss the very premise that it is based upon. For that reason, we focus on that premise and will move on to the main point next time... But you can't judge by outer appearance, either way!
Revelation 8:3-5 recapitulates the cries of God's people for justice in Revelation 6:9-11.
"The unity of John's book . . . is . . . like that of a musical theme with variations, each variation adding something new to the significance of the whole composition . . . Each new series of visions both recapitulates and develops the themes already stated in what has gone before." (G. B. Caird)
In the middle of this magnificent symphony, we suddenly have a 30 intermission of complete silence.
Revelation 10:4; Deuteronomy 29:29; and 2 Corinthians 12:4 teach us that there are things God does not want us to know. If we knew these secret things, we would be tempted to violate God's revealed will in Scripture.
Habakkuk 2:20 and Zechariah 2:13 declare that God's presence demands complete and silent stillness. That silence is a summons to the entire world to shut its mouth at his judgment.
Revelation 20:11-14 teaches that everyone will be condemned to hell, and each mouth will be silenced before God (Romans 3:19). The only ones who will escape are those whose names are written in the book of life (Revelation 20:15).
Do you know if your name is written there? Holy Communion is a good time to repent and put our trust in the finished work of Christ.
🗡️ Sermon delivered at Pilgrim Baptist Church on Sunday, September 3, 2023, at 2:15 pm. 🗡️
This expository sermon is based on 1 Timothy 2:11-15. It explains what the biblical meaning of women learning in silence.
This sermon specifically answers the question: What does the Bible mean when it talks about women not usurping authority over the man.
1 Timothy 2:11-15 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

In our study, Peter has extended the Kingdom offer to the leaders of national Israel a SECOND time but will be threatened and given a gag order even as these leaders admit they know the miracle healing of the lame man is of God. Peter responds with prayer for boldness and the Lord delivers!
Also Reference: 1 Peter 1:18-21, Exodus 4:28 & 30, John 2:18, 1 Corinthians 1:22, Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 12:12, John 6:63 & 7:37-39
The Church needs reformation and revival. Her Pastors and leaders must take to heart the exhortation given by the Apostle to Titus. They must set an example before their congregations of Gospel living in order to make empty the accusations of the enemies of the Lord.

Luke1:13 " But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John."
Luke 1:30 " And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God."
Luke 2:10-11 " And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
We as believers have to walk in the assurance of God's word, looking at the security of the believer in Christ Jesus, that the battle is the Lord's. He our protection, no matter what the enemy comes against us with no weapon will prosper that is formed against us. We need to look deeper at the spiritual implications of this statement. Because we have to walk in obedience to His word, cause He does chasten His children. We can not be walking in the flesh expecting this invincibility.
Psalm 39 begins with David holding back his complaint lest he be a stumbling block to the wicked (vs 1-3). This preface leaves the reader anxious to find out what is troubling him so? When he finally opens his mouth in verse 4, his complaint is not regarding any human being, wicked or righteous, but is laid against the Lord, Yahweh. We learn from this that it is wise to not voice complaints against God in the hearing of enemies; nevertheless, we should bring our troubles before God Himself.
What troubles David so, is the brevity and meaninglessness of human existence (vs 4-6). The Selah at the end of verses 5 and 11 follow the Hebrew word hebel, translated "mere breath," leading us to pause and meditate on this sobering thought. This is the key word of the book of Ecclesiastes, often translated, "vanity." As perplexing as the brevity of life is, verse 5 affirms that God has made it this way. But why then does God bother with such an insubstantial creature as man? What is His concern with me? Why can He not just leave me alone in my fleeting life? The answer is both easy to understand and utterly abstract. There is a paradox that although our life is fleeting and years are short, we are more than just passing creatures. Our brief journey on this earth has eternal value, as God made us for eternity and for Himself.
When God disciplines us, sometimes things get tough. He may allow us to suffer the consequences of our sins or to suffer some of the difficult experiences the world has to offer in order to bring us to repentance. In fact, he may even take away or consume the things dearest to us in order to bring us back to Him. This is the heart of David's prayer - deliver me both from my sin and from the discipline being meted out upon me!
This sermon was preached on June 18, 2023 at Antioch Presbyterian Church, a mission work of Calvary Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America located in Woodruff, South Carolina. Dr. Joseph A. Pipa, Jr. preached this sermon entitled "The Silent Scream" on Job 24:1-17. For more information about Antioch Presbyterian Church, please visit antiochpca.com or contact us at [email protected].
When God allows us to suffer, we should strengthen our faith by reminding ourselves what is true about us and about God. (Note, the first 30 seconds is a little choppy, but the rest of the recording seems relatively clear.)
