based on 19 ratings
Aug 29, 2004
Denomination: Pentecostal
Audience: Adults

Summary: The purpose of this sermon is to motivate the hearers to affirm to others that God promises are SIGNS THAT give reasons to EXPECT SUCCESS.

MOVE 3: ... THROUGH HER TEARS AND importunity cries of

IF YOU LOVED ME, YOU WOULD SHARE THE JEPOARDY

ANSWER WITH ME.

A. NOW, MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS ... you may

recall Samson , indeed, shared THE JEOPARDY

ANSWER WITH HER

B. WHILE SHE SHARED HIS WORDS WITH THE PHILITINES.

C. HER WORDS WAS NOT HER BOND OR GUARANTEEE (to her

husband).

D. Instead, HER WORDS CAN BE SEEN AS A BROKEN PROMISE.

*****************TAKE 5 BEATS**********************

MOVE 4: NOW ... WEBSTER’S NEW WORELD DICTIONARY ...

defines a promise as a sign that gives reason

for expecting success.

A. In other words, IF YOU SAY, “I’LL MEET YOU AT THE FIRING RANGE ON THE CORNER OF SUCH AND SUCH

B. ...AT SUCH AND SUCH TIME,” you have comitted yourself to that person for a certain length of time.

C. LIKEWISE, THE GREAT PROMISES OF THE BIBLE ARE THE

EFFORTS OF GOD TO SHARE HIMSELF WITH US.

D. And if we understand the promises, we also

understand the nature and character of God.

E. For every promise is a commitment on God’s part to

give of HIMSELF.

F. IN OTHER WORDS, GOD PROMISES GIVE US (AS

BELIEVERS) REASONS TO EXPECT SUCCESS.

G. GOD SHARES HIS PROMISES WITH US BY SPEAKING T

HROUGH 16 GREAT PROPHETS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT

(Rom. 1:2).

******************TAKE 5 BEATS*****************

MOVE 5: FOR DON’T YOU REMEMBER ... GOD PROMISES

THROUGH THE “BOOK OF ISAIAH” IS A PROMISE OF A

NEW BEGINNING.

A. ... AND IN THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH ... WE HAVE EXACTLY

THE OPPOSITE OF ISAIAH. FOR IN JEREMIAH WE FIND

THE PROMISE OF THE ABSENCE OF GOD.

B. YES ... GOD PROMISES TO BE ABSENT FORM OUR LIFE

UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS. HE PROMISES TO LEAVE

US WITHOUT ANY SENSE OF HIS FELLOWSHIP.

C. ALL OF WHICH, IS THE MESSAGE OF JEREMIAH.

D. FOR JEREMIAH WAS SENT TO DECLARE TO THE PEOPLE OF

GOD THAT THEIR CITY WAS LOST AND AS A RESULT OF

their DISOBEDIENCE .... THEY WERE GOING INTO

CAPTIVITY FOR 70 YEARS.

E. GOD ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES. FOR THE BIBLE TELLS

US THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL; AND HE CAN NOT LIE (Titus

1:2 & Heb. 10:23)

*******************TAKE 5 BEATS*****************

MOVE 6: FOR WHO CAN EVER FORGET THE PROMISES GOD

MADE TO David (in Psalm 89:3,4,35,36 & 2 Sam.

7:12) FOR GOD WORD SAYS ....

A. “I HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH MY CHOSEN.

B. I HAVE SWORN UNTO DAVID MY SERVANT.

C. THY SEED WILL I ESTABLISH FOR EVER,A ND BUILD-UP

THY THRONE TO ALL GENERATIONS ...

D. I HAVE SWORN BY MY HOLINESS THAT I WILL NOT LIE

UNTO DAVID. HIS SEED SHALL ENDURE FOREVER... AND

HIS THRONE AS THE SUN BEFORE ME.

*****************TAKE 5 BEATS**********************

MOVE 7: THEREFORE ... IN OUR TEXT TODAY TODAY ... WE

FIND A PSALM THAT SAYS (IN ESSENCE) WHEN WE

ARE WEAK ... OR STRONG ... THE LORD IS OUR

ROCK ...

A. HE’S OUR ROCKY WALL, BLOCK OF STONE ... HE’S OUR

STRENGTH, ...

B. THE PSALMIST ENDS ON A SWEETNOTE ... by saying GOD

IS MY HONEY FROM THE ROCK....

C. Now ... my brothers and sisters ... it’s

impossible to think of HONEY WITHOUT THINKING OF

BEES. MOST OF YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF

BEES (20-8000 per hive)....

D. QUEEN BEES (one per hive and her main function is

to produce bees),WORKER BEES (do all the different

Talk about it...

So, what did you think?


Thank you.
