Balaam vs God




Jan.27th, 2018




Intro – to understand our text today you need to review the entire account of Balaam in scripture. 


            See Numbers 22:12, 22:17, 22:19, 22:22, 23:25. Our text picks up with Balak’s angry response to      Balaam. Take note of Balaam’s downward spiral into sin.




I.  God communicates with Balaam.


A. God communicates with all of us.  Heb.1:1-2, Jn.16:8, Jn.6:44


B. Through our consciences. Rom.2:14-15, Acts 2:37, Lk.3:10, 12, 14


C. First preach sin 2Pet.2:15, then gospel. Lk.3:7,18,  1Jn.1:9




II. Balaam questions God’s authority.


A. Balaam went against God’s stated will.  Num.22:19, 32


B. Thus he questioned God’s authority. Jude 11,


C. When God clearly says something is sin don’t ask for a second opinion. 1Sam.28:6-7 (Saul)


D. When God says something is true, don’t doubt it.  1Tim.6:20, Col.2:8




III. Balaam encouraged sin through compromise.


A. He got the Israelites to sin. Num.31:16, Rev.2:14


B. Don’t compromise with the world.1Jn.2:15-17,  2Cor.6:15-17


C. Don’t cause others to stumble. Rom.8:21, Matt.18:6, Matt.24:11




Con.  Balaam found out God keeps His word.  Num.31:8. This is true for us also. He keeps His word concerning punishment. He keeps His word concerning forgiveness. 




John 2:1-11

Jan.20th, 2019




 Intro – With the lack of any biblical evidence to indicate otherwise we can assume Jesus had lived what would be a pretty normal human life. Heb.4:15.  Our text reflexes that truth but shows us this was about to change.

 I. He attends a wedding.


            A. He always knew what His mission was.  (4) Luke 19:10

            B. He had spent 30 years manifesting His human side. Lk.2:51-52
                        1. Obeyed His parents
                        2. Helped His father
                        3. Showed kindness to all.

C. He still showed He cared about human events. Rom.12:15, Lk.15:10, Jn.11:35, Lk.19:41-44, 1Peter 5:7

II. Mary knew her Son.


            A. She had 30 years to ponder His being special. Lk.2:19, Lk.2:51

            B. He had not performed any miracles. (11)

            C. Mary still knew enough to know He was in charge. (5)

 III. Jesus starts to reveal Who He is. (11)

            A. John spoke of this day. Jn.1:14

                        1. Word became flesh – His birth.

                        2. Dwelt among men – His life from birth to 30.

                        3. Saw His glory – His ministry years, 30-33. Mt.16:15-16

            B. His glory refers to His deity. Jn.11:4, Jn 12:16, Jn.17:10, 2Thess.1:10

            C. He would perform many other “signs” to prove He is God. Jn.5:36, Jn.10:37, Jn.15:24

 Con. When you read of His miracles do you believe?  Jn.1:12.   Although not physically here on earth He still performs miracles to help you believe. Do you believe?





Matthew 2:19-23


Jan.6th 2019





Intro – Although our text may not have any profound theological statements in it, we can learn something from how Joseph and Mary responded to the Lord.  They are a good example for us to follow.




I. Joseph had learned obedience.  Deut.28:2


A. He was going to break off his engagement until told not to. Lk.1:38, Mt.1:19-20


B. He left his house as the angel commanded. Mt.2:13


C. He obeyed the Lord to leave Egypt.  (21)


D. He showed great patience. They remained in Egypt 2-3 years.  James 5:7




II. Joseph did not have the full picture.


A. He obeyed without having all the details. Jer.29:11, Ps.40:5


B. God’s will was accomplished through Joseph’s actions. Matt.1:22-23, Matt.2:17-18, Mt.2:23


C. God directed his path as he lived in obedience. Mt.6:33, Prov.3:5-6, Ps.119:133




III. Joseph was a part of a bigger picture.


A. He did not get further instruction until he obeyed the first command. (22)


B. Christ had to grow up in Nazareth. (23)


C. To be called a Nazarene was a reproach. Jn.1:46, Jn.19:19, Is.53:3. Ps.22:6-7, Is.49:7


D. We should see our lives as a part of the bigger picture.




Con. – Let us be like Joseph and Mary. When the Lord leads us let us obey and trust Him to carry out His will.





Luke 2:41-52






Intro- Being subdued is not something one likes to think about. It speaks of being conquered or defeated. In our text (vs 51) today we see Jesus subjected Himself or placed Himself under another’s authority. This is true humility.




I. He willing put Himself in subjection.


A. He refused to use His divine powers. Phil.2:7-8


B. He put Himself under His parent’s authority even though they did not understand. (49) Heb.5:8


C. He placed Himself under governing authority. Jn.19:11




II. He did this as an example for us.


A. Parents        Eph.6:1, Col.3:20


B. Spouse        Eph.5:21


C. Disciples    Jn.13:5, 13, 15


D. Government            Rom.13:1, Titus 3:1


E. Spiritual leaders     Heb.13:7, Heb.13:17


F. God the Father        Matt.26:42, Rom.10:3




III. His parents were not perfect.


A. He was!  Heb.4:15. Yet He obeyed His parents. Rom.3:23


B. No human institution is perfect but we must respect authority. Rom.13:2




Con. If we cannot respect human authority we will be unwilling to show respect for God’s authority over us.





His lovingkindness


Isaiah 63:7-14


listen to message





Intro – The end of the year is a good time to think about the past year and all the lovingkindnesses that God has shown you. It’s good to remember what the Lord has done.




I.  He saved us. Matt.1:21


A. According to His compassion. 1Pet.5:7, Is.30:18


B. He redeemed us, brought us back because He loves us. 1Jn.4:10, 2Thess.2:16-17




II. He knows us.


A. Because he is like us. Phil.2:7, Heb.4:15


B. He has emotions like us. Mt.9:36, Lk.19:41-42, Lonely-Mt.26:40-41, Betrayed-Jn.6:71


1. Afflicted. Luke 24:26, Is.53:4-7


2. Grieved. Mt.26:37-38, Eph.4:30


3. Because of this He understands us.  Ps.139:2-4, Ps.103:14




III. He leads us.


A. Even if He has to fight us. Num.22:31, Heb.12:5-7


B. By empowering us with his Holy Spirit. 11, 14, Jn.16:13


C. Remember he has bought you this far. 1Sam.7:12, Ps.111:4, Is.54:10




Con. Will you make mention of the Lord’s lovingkindness?
