SCBC Lord’s day #50

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalms 100:1-5 ESV

SCBC Sunday School: Exposition of 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Chapter 30:1 Of the Lord’s Supper

The supper of the Lord Jesus was instituted by him the same night wherein he was betrayed, to be observed in his churches, unto the end of the world, for the perpetual remembrance and showing forth the sacrifice of himself in his death, confirmation of the faith of believers in all the benefits thereof, their spiritual nourishment and growth in him, their further engagement in and to all duties which they owe to him; and to be a bond and pledge of their communion with him and with each other.

Historical survey:

  • To eat and drink is an ancient form of worship, a table fellowship – Gen 14:18-20 – early echoes of the Supper
  • Abraham dine with God (Theophany) – Gen 18
  • The Manna from heaven – John 6:31-35
  • The bread and water typified the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 10:1-4)
  • Theophany – Ex 24:9-10 – God is eager to enjoy table fellowship with His people
  • The entire OT sacrifical system does not only typify the atonement but the backbone of the form of worship that consists and revolves in eating and drinking with God (National feasts, etc)
  • Passover feasts – symbol of God’s deliverance from Egyptian bondage that typified Christ’s deliverance from sin, death, and hell.
  • The eating and drinking makes the Passover temporary and present.
  • True deliverance is in Christ alone.
  • The Lord’s supper will end until Christ comes, the we will still dine with Him on the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Jesus followed the traditional manner of the OT passover meal but He altered/redefined the elements. The blood signifies His blood. The bread signifies His body.

This is a local church’s ordinance not government or family. There is no such thing as virtual Lord’s Supper.

SCBC Morning Message: Expository Series on the Book of Romans (Ptr. Jeremiah)

Romans Romans 11:1-6 – Paul’s second argument: The Account of Elijah

  1. Paul’s Appeal to the OT Scriptures v. 2
    • There are remnants according to the election of grace. v. 5 ( 1 Ki 19:18)
    • Elijah was wrong in His conclusion. It was not the case during their Elijah, so it is not the case during Paul’s time that God rejected His people Israel.
  2. Paul’s Application of the OT Scriptures to the present time.
    • God is in control since He reserved for Himself.
    • Isaiah 1:8-9 – if not for God’s electing grace, they were all destroyed.
    • None will come to the LORD if not for His election of grace.

Paul interpreted the current situation Scripturally. Let us do so when we are depressed that we may find comfort.

God’s church will never die. God preserves His church. The basis is election in Christ, which is entirely of grace.

SCBC Afternoon Message: Expository Series on the book of Isaiah (Bro. Jeff)

The Message of Immanuel: Isaiah 8:9-10

Message: God’s presence is a threat to the wicked that they may fear Him and comfort for His people that they may trust Him.

  1. God’s Threat to the Wicked v. 9-10a
    • The Object of God’s threat – the wicked nations
    • The Content of God’s Threat  v. 9be prepared and be afraid
    • The Success of God’s Threat v. 10 …it will come to nothing …it will not stand.
    • To go against God’s people is to court destruction upon one’s head. To choose to mock God’s people is to choose to destroy oneself.
  2. God’s Comfort for the Saints
    • God is with usWho are the “us”? They are those who are redeemed by God, the remnants of God’s grace (Isaiah 10:19-22). The covenant people of God.
    • With us is God – Let us meditate on the fact that where the Lord is there is security, there is comfort, there is peace in the midst of the storm. : In view of Immanuel’s future triumph, Isaiah announce that the enemies of God who gather against his people will be shattered (Gen 3:15). At all times, in all conditions, even prior to the coming of Christ, God is with us. How much more now that Christ already came?
    • To contemplate the declaration that God is with us brings us face to face with the Child, who is the source of power and consolation. If there is to be deliverance and consolation, it is the Child to whom we must turn.- Young

Therefore, let anyone who does not now know Christ awake and fly from the wrath to come. The wrath of Almighty God is now undoubtedly hanging over a great part of this congregation. Let everyone fly out of Sodom!! Run for your lives! Don’t look back! Escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed!” - J. Edwards, Sinner's in the Hands of Angry God

Look at your situation not only scripturally but also in light of who God is. The God who brought you there is the God who is with you.

Blessed Lord’s Day!
