Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: 9/11 observance or in face of elevated terror alert

“Thou shalt not be afraid of the Terror…,”

Psalm 91:5

Preached by Pastor John W. Ingham, 9/15/2002

(Statistics should be updated)

We will be having a special observance for the anniversary of 9/11 and as we approach that date there is fear of another terroristic occurrence.


1. I have always thought that David penned the 91st

Psalm but upon further investigation I found out

according to many theologians Moses wrote that

Psalm. It was the one thing that helped the

Children of Israel make it through the 40 years of

wilderness wondering.

A. You see there were at least two men in that

number along with their families that were

not under the curse placed by God upon the

Children of Israel. They were Caleb and Joshua.

B. They are a picture of the victorious church that is

ready for the Rapture to occur and to enter into the

promised land.

C. The rest of the group wondered around in the

wilderness living defeated lives until they died.

O yes they saw occasional miracles and they

received, vicariously the blessings of God as He

blessed Caleb and Joshua and their families. But

they themselves never knew what it was like to

dwell in the “Secret place of the Most High.” This

is a level that must be sought after and that most

of the people attending churches around the world

have never entered into.

D. Several weeks ago I spoke of the fact that God is

waiting for the church to enter its proper role

today as an overcoming Spirit empowered victorious

entity awaiting the coming of the Lord.

1.This was born out in Acts 3:21, “Whom the

heaven must receive until the times of

restitution of all things, which God hath

spoken by the mouth of the prophets since

the world began.”

2.And then we have a description of the worship

that will be restored. I have been preaching

about it. Listen to Amos 9:11-15, “In that day

will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is

fallen, and close up the breaches thereof;

and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build

it as in days of old:” (12) “That they may

possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the

heathen, which are called by my name, saith

the LORD that doeth this.” (13) “Behold, the

days come, saith the LORD, that the

plowman shall take over the reaper, and the

treader of grapes him that soweth the seed:

and the mountains shall drop sweet wine,

and the hills shall melt.” (14) “And I will

bring again the captivity of my people of

Israel, and they shall build the waste cities

and inhabit them; and they shall plant

vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they

shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of

them.” (15) “I will also plant them upon

their land, and they shall be no more pulled

up out of their land, which saith the LORD

thy God.”

a. What is God saying to us? He is saying

that there is going to be a time of

restitution in the church. “Of What?” On

yes the Davidic worship. Use of

instruments of ever sort. David even

invented new instruments. But even more

than that he is telling us there will be a

restitution of great joy. “What do you

mean Brother Ingham?” Any time you

see wine mentioned as a type or shadow it

means the joy of the Holy Spirit.

b. And hey, hey, when the wine flows from

the mountains, God is telling us the

mountains will melt. WOW!!!! What a

parallel. You have mountains today? Oh

yes you do! Yes you do. It is no time to

get sad! It is no time to draw up in a

cocoon. It is no time to sing the blues. “No

body knows the trouble I have. No body

knows my sorry.” Hey, forget that. It is

time to sing:

(1)“I will enter His gates with

thanksgiving in my heart,

I will enter His courts with praise:

I will say, ‘This is the day the

LORD hath made,’

I will rejoice for He has made me

glad, He has made me glad, He has made

me glad, I will rejoice for he has

made me glad.”

(2) And then: “The joy of the LORD is my

strength,The joy of the LORD is my

strength,The joy of the LORD is my

strength.The joy of the LORD is my


“He gives me living waters and I

thirst no more. He gives me living

waters and I thirst no more. He

gives me living waters and I thirst no

more. The joy of the LORD is my


(3) And then why don’t you:

“Rise and be healed in the name of
