  • A Big Wake Up Call Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 35 views

    The Book of Joel is a wake up call. God is good but he is not safe.

    The challenge of national tragedy. In his poem, The Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot writes, Go, said the bird, for the leaves were full of children, Hidden excitedly, containing laughter. Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind Cannot bear very much reality. People can only accept reality in very small ...read more

  • What Sort Of Day? Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 13 views

    The Day of the Lord is a day to prepare for and this is done by trusting in Jesus.

    Clear and present danger. When there’s danger, the alarm usually sounds—more than once. Sydney has a CBD emergency warning system. There are 98 speakers throughout the city and 13 messaging signs at key transport hubs. The system is designed to manage lots of people needing to be moved in the ...read more

  • The Spirit Is Coming! Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 42 views

    Joel promises restoration through his Son and the sending of his Spirit. God promises to renew people who repent and turn to him.

    For all the talk about forging our own brave, new world, the evidence seems to the contrary. People are despondent and the world seems a mess. Every day the ideological battles play out in the public square are they are prising apart public opinion and fragmenting society. Climate change—gender ...read more

  • Swing The Sickle Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 15 views

    God's judgement is fearful. God will call to account those who reject him. Don't say you weren't warned. Return to the Lord.

    The great and terrible day of the Lord. Are you afraid of God? Do you secretly harbour a fear of him? Maybe in your upbringing you were introduced to a god who scared you and this was reinforced as you read those violent stories in the OT. Does a fear of God turn you away him? The language that ...read more

  • The Lord Is Good

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Jan 6, 2019
     | 234 views

    A short sermon for a funeral service. I wrote this talk for the funeral of a Christian person.

    In Nahum 1.7—a book in the Bible not often heard—the prophet Nahum says, “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7). It may seem counter-intuitive to consider this verse at a funeral when death is clearly on our minds. How can we say that the ...read more

  • I'm Too Proud To Be Humble Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Dec 17, 2018
     | 451 views

    A simple Christmas Day sermon around the theme of humility. A little shorter than normal and I tried to be jargon free.

    Introduction—humility. Someone once said, “Swallow your pride occasionally, it’s non-fattening”. I wish on a day like today that fruit cake, chocolate and pavlova were non-fattening. One of my favourite humility sayings is, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself ...read more

    A Good Friday sermon

    A few years ago I witnessed a head on collision between two cars. The car about 300 metres in front of me collided head-on with a vehicle overtaking a truck in the opposite direction. I had a clear, unobstructed view of the incident. The cars collided head-on but off-centre. So they rotated when ...read more

    An Easter Sunday sermon

    Recently I came across a collection of the best last lines of books ever written: “Tomorrow, I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day.” –Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind (1936) But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ...read more

  • Accountability Rules Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Sep 1, 2011
     | 2,487 views

    A talk which explores the biblical theme of judgment

    The prospect of STANDING before God on judgment day is one of those Bible ideas that gets lots of bad press: We either laugh it away (slide) Or think of those failed predictions (slide) Or the images are so horrible we push them to one side (slide) The Word of God brings us BACK to out ...read more

  • Are We Serious About Hell? Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Sep 1, 2011
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,305 views

    This talk examines two common alternatives to the traditional idea of hell: universalism and annihilationism.

    The bow of God’s wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart, and strains the bow, and it is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, and that of an angry God, without any promise or obligation at all, that keeps the arrow one moment from ...read more

    An overview of Isaiah with the aim of putting the servant songs in context

    ‘I’d like to inform the congregation this morning that, from now on, we’ll no longer be having a Sunday sermon. I’ve noticed that my messages have been making so little difference that it really isn’t worth all the hours it takes for me to prepare them or for you to sit there and listen to them. ...read more

  • The Servant, My Chosen One Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Jul 24, 2011
     | 2,587 views

    The servant who will bring justice to the nations.

    I really enjoy DESIGN and construction. Civil Engineering. Lost assignment (but don’t tell the outcome). I know that when we build a home there are THREE things needed: foundation, brick walls and a roof. Just can’t have a house with foundation, walls and a roof. Here’s a ...read more

  • A Remarkable Testimony Series

     | 2,553 views

    The servant who labours under the burden placed upon him.

    Being involved in gospel ministry is the GREATEST thing you can do with your life. There will be days when you say to yourself, ‘Praise the Lord! I love making an ETERNAL difference in the lives of people! I love TEACHING Bible lessons to the kids. I love SINGING in the choir. I love helping ...read more

    Responding to the faithfulness of the servant

  • Glory In Suffering Series

    The servant who suffered for his people.

    Here’s some INTERESTING advice to parents, ‘People get very upset by the idea that their children might have to suffer. Well, why? […] are you having children? You want them to be Christians, don’t you? If they are going to be Christians, they are going to suffer. That is ...read more
