WHERE IS THE WORD OF THE LORD?

11/16/03

JEREMIAH 17:7-15

INTRODUCTION: JEREMIAH MAKES A STATEMENT, AND IN VERSE 17 THE PEOPLE ASK A QUESTION: “WHERE IS THE WORD OF THE LORD?” GIVE IT TO US NOW.

1. WE FIND THE WORD OF THE LORD IN THE MESSAGE OF SALVATION.

2. WE FIND IT IN THE METHOD OF CONDEMNATION.

3. WE FIND IT IN THE MERCY OF JUSTIFICATION.

NOT MANY TODAY, CARE TO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD, THE WORLD IS MORE EXCITED OVER THE SINFULNESS OF WORLDLY, ENTERTAINMENT.

MOST WILL REJECT IT, IT CRAMPS THEIR LIFESTYLE.

MANY WILL DENY IT, SCOFF AT THE MERE MENTION OF THE WORD OF THE LORD, DISMISS IT AS A BOOK, NEVER REALIZING NOR BELIEVING THAT IT IS THE BOOK THAT WILL ONE DAY JUDGE THE SINS OF MANKIND,

LUKE 21: 33 DECLARES : IT WILL STAND WHEN THE WORLD IS ON FIRE.

IT IS SECURE IN GOD’S PROMISES.

I. SAME PLACE IT WAS IN THE DAY OF ABRAHAM. GEN> 15:1

“I AM THY SHIELD AND THY EXCEEDINGLY GREAT REWARD.

(A) HE IS OUR SHIELD AGAINST SIN. EPH. 6: > TAKE THE SHIELD OF FAITH WHEREWITH YOU SHALL STAND AGAINST ALL THAT SATAN SHALL HURL AT YOU.

1. WE ARE PROTECTED BY THE SHIELD OF FAITH.

ROMANS 8:30: IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US.

MT. 16: 18: THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST THE CHURCH THAT CHRIST BUILT.

(B) HE IS OUR SHIELD AGAINST SORROW.

1. OUR SHIELD IN TIMES OF TRIALS

2. OUR SHIELD IN TIMES OF HEARTACHES

3. OUR SHIELD IN TIMES OF PERSECUTION

(C) HE IS OUR GREAT REWARD.

1. IN HIM, BY HIM, AND THROUGH HIM, ALL BLESSINGS FLOW.

II. SAME PLACE IT WAS IN THE DAY OF MOSES. EXODUS 12:12

For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

HERE WE FIND A TYPE AND FORESHADOW OF SALVATION

A BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT OF CHRIST IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

(A) GOD COMMANDED MOSES TO TELL THE CONGREGATION: “ON THE 10th day, (testimony) OF THE MONTH, EVERY MAN SHALL TAKE A LAMB, ACCORDING TO THE HOUSE OF THEIR FATHERS.”

1. IF THE HOUSEHOLD IS TOO SMALL FOR THE LAMB LET HIM JOIN IN WITH HIS NEIGHBOR’S HOUSEHOLD.

2. YOUR LAMB SHALL BE WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH, A MALE OF THE FIRST YEAR

(B) NOTICE THE WORDING: A LAMB, THE LAMB, YOUR LAMB

1. A LAMB SHALL BE TAKEN OUT OF THE FLOCK, SINGLED OUT(CHOSEN) TO DIE A SACRIFICIAL DEATH .

APPOINTED TO DIE, 1Peter 1:18-19

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible

things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

2. THE LAMB WAS TO BE THE SACRIFICIAL OFFERING, WITH THE BLOOD PLACED OVER THE DOORWAY***. …..(JOHN 10 :7) I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP) ACTS 4:12>>ONLY ONE WAY

3. CHRIST WAS SELECTED AND APPOINTED TO DIE FOR US, HE BECOME OUR SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY.

4. NOTICE JOHN 1:29: ( SIN >> (SINGULAR) JOHN 3:18

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

(C) YOUR LAMB SHALL BE WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH
