Solomon Is a Type and Shadow of Jesus in His Kingdom (1 Kings 10)

3/1/2021
Solomon is a type and shadow of Jesus Christ while he rules and reigns in 1 Kings 10. The splendor and majesty of King Solomon’s kingdom prefigures the splendor and majesty of Christ’s future Kingdom. After Jesus's Second Coming He sets up His Kingdom on the earth and reveals Himself as the true and greater Solomon. https://youtu.be/O3rQLoe2Fow Solomon is a type and shadow of Jesus. The splendor of Solomon’s kingdom prefigures the splendor and majesty of Christ’s future Kingdom. Table of...

Something Greater than Solomon | Jesus Brought the Kingdom of God

2/21/2021
Jesus said, "The queen of the South…came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here" (Matthew 12:42). This verse isn't worded the way we’d expect! Wouldn’t we expect Jesus to say, "…someone wiser is here"? Why did He say something? He said something because He’s referring to more than just Himself. He’s also referring to the kingdom He brought with Him. God become a Man in the Person of Jesus Christ. He came from heaven to...

Why is Jesus Called the Son of David? | The True and Greater Son of David and God (2 Samuel 7:13-15)

2/14/2021
Why is Jesus called the Son of David? In the Davidic covenant in 2 Samuel 7, God told David, "12 When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever." One reason we know this is looking past Solomon to Jesus is the use of the word "forever," which occurs 3 times in the verses....

Jesus Built the House of God – “I will build my church” (Matthew 16:18)

2/12/2021
Jesus built the house of God. David wanted to build God a house, but God said He would build David a house, or dynasty, that would never end (2 Samuel 7:1-17). We know Solomon built a physical house, or temple, for God. But Jesus built the greater spiritual house, or temple, known as the church. The beauty is we are part of the house Christ built. Why should this encourage us? It has to do with durability! Jesus wanted us to be confident that His house wouldn’t be destroyed by even the...

When God Says, “No,” Trust Him and Walk By Faith | The Just Will Live By Faith (Hab 2:4 & Rom 1:17)

2/11/2021
When God says, "No," trust Him and walk by faith. "The just will live by faith" Is one of the most quoted commands in the Bible (Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:37-38). How many times have we prayed, not gotten what we wanted, and asked, "Why not God? Why wouldn’t You want this? It seems like this is best?" Since we don’t get to find out why the answer is no, what are we forced to do? Trust God knows what is best and walk by faith. The reason it says we must live by...

When God Doesn’t Answer the Way You Want | When God Says, “No,” to Our Prayer Requests – Part 1

2/10/2021
When God doesn't answer the way we want it can be very discouraging. It can leave us feeling very hurt and confused. When we are praying for ourselves or others and those prayers are not answered, we might feel like it’s our fault. We might be tempted to think, “If we only prayed a little more, had a little more faith, or were a little more mature, then God would say yes.” This sermon will encourage you that it’s not necessarily your fault and you don’t need to feel bad. Hearing no from God...

Our Light Affliction Which is But for a Moment (2 Corinthians 4:17) – Develop an Eternal Perspective

2/9/2021
Paul said, "Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory" (2 Corinthians 4:17). It sounds like Paul is minimizing our trials by calling them light momentary afflictions. Could you imagine saying this to someone when they’re going through something painful: “Hey, this trial you think is terrible and excruciating is only light and momentary.” If we were counseling people how to counsel others we would tell them NOT to say...

Outwardly We Are Wasting Away, But We Do not Lose Heart (2 Corinthians 4:16) Finding Blessings in Trials

2/8/2021
In 2 Corinthians 4:16 Paul wrote that, "Outwardly we are wasting away." When you feel like your body is wasting away it’s understandably very tempting to focus on the trial. I would like to encourage you, as difficult as it can be at times, to look for the blessings. I think you’ll be surprised by two things: The number of things you can find to be thankful for even in the midst of trials. How much better you will feel after thinking about these blessings and giving thanks for them....

Remember Your Creator While You Are Young (Ecclesiastes 12:1) – Before Our Bodies Betray Us

2/6/2021
"Remember your creator while you are young, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, 'I have no pleasure in them'" Says Solomon in Ecclesiastes 12:1. When you’re young you typically don’t have the sort of physical problems that Solomon describes in the following verses. God has given youth time, energy, strength, vitality, intellect, desire, passion, talent. So make the most of these things available to you while you are young and you still can; when you have...

The Danger of Spiritual Pride Shown Through King Amaziah of Judah’s Life – Finishing Well – Part III

2/5/2021
The danger of spiritual pride is shown well through the disappointing life of Amaziah, King of Judah in 2 Chronicles 25 (also 2 Kings 14). When Amaziah had his victory over the Edomites, he became very proud. Success can be dangerous because it can lead to pride. Sometimes it’s God’s grace that we’re not more successful. https://youtu.be/AXwikhvm1vo The danger of spiritual pride is shown well through the disappointing life of Amaziah, King of Judah in 2 Chronicles 25 (also 2 Kings 14).

Those Who Hope in the Lord Will Renew Their Strength – Isaiah 40:31 – Finishing Well – Part II

2/4/2021
Isaiah 40:31 says, "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." We have been in a series called, “Pursuing Wisdom.” We learned from Solomon’s life that it doesn’t matter how much wisdom you have if you don’t apply it. We also learned from Solomon’s life that it doesn’t matter how well you start. It matters how you finish. He, along with some other kings, reveal how we must wait...

Let Us Run with Endurance the Race that Is Set Before Us – Wisdom Needed to Finish Well – Part I

2/3/2021
Hebrews 12:1 says, "Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us." The part that surprised me the most about Solomon and other kings isn't that they turned from the Lord, since many people turn from the Lord. The part that surprised me is They did it when they were older after serving the Lord for so many years. This shows how hard it is for people to...

Solomon’s Example of Failing to Apply Wisdom – How Could the Wisest Man in History Be So Foolish

2/2/2021
Solomon is the best example in Scripture of failing to apply wisdom. It’s absolutely astounding that Solomon was worse in every respect after receiving wisdom, which is why he's the best example of the failure of not applying wisdom that’s been given. The question is how could the wisest man in history be so foolish? https://youtu.be/SoLxl4LQaSc Solomon is the best example in Scripture of failing to apply wisdom.

Learning from Solomon, the Wisest Fool to Ever Live | Must Apply Wisdom to Finish Well (1 Kings 11)

God wants us learning from Solomon, so He recorded his life very transparently. He’s one of the most unique men in scripture, in both good and bad ways. The man who built the temple to for the Lord then built high places for idols. Something absolutely astounding is Solomon was worse in every single respect after receiving wisdom. He’s the best example in Scripture of the need to apply wisdom. https://youtu.be/VTG2DKxVdew God wants us learning from Solomon, so He recorded his life very...

The Importance of Applying Wisdom in Your Life – Shown Through Solomon’s Foolishness (1 Kings 10)

1/31/2021
Scripture is clear that applying wisdom is one of the most important parts of the Christian life. If we don't apply wisdom, which is to say we aren't applying the knowledge we've received, we're being foolish. Solomon is the best example in Scripture of the need to apply wisdom. https://youtu.be/SDr0BVGI1WI Applying wisdom is one of the most important parts of the Christian life.

The Word of God Is Living and Powerful (Hebrews 4:12) – A Glimpse of Jesus’ Wisdom Through Solomon

1/25/2021
Hebrews 4:12 says, "The Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Solomon is one of the clearest types of Christ in the Old Testament. Speaking of the whole earth coming to hear Solomon’s wisdom, Jesus said, “The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends...

Wisdom Is the Principal Thing Therefore Get Wisdom (Proverbs 4:7) – Why Is Wisdom So Important?

1/14/2021
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom,” are the wise father’s words to his son in Proverbs 4:7. As it’s written in some other translations, “The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom.” This verse shows, maybe more than anyplace else in the bible, how important it is to get wisdom. But why is that so important? In the sermon Pastor Scott looks at King Solomon as an example of someone who pursued wisdom above all else. When given one of the greatest offers ever made, Solomon...

If Any of You Lacks Wisdom Let Him Ask of God, Who Gives to All Liberally (James 1:5-8)

1/13/2021
"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him," is the command God gives to believers in James 1:5 when they're going through trials (James 1:2-4). We’ve reached an important point in our series. You could say we’ve been building up to this sermon. I said I wanted to preach on wisdom, and in particular how wisdom helps us navigate through trials, and that’s the topic of this message. https://youtu.be/bysPjRta4LU...

If You Receive My Words and Treasure My Commands Within You (Proverbs 2:1-10) – Acquiring Wisdom

1/12/2021
The father in Proverbs said, "My son, if you receive my words and treasure my commands within you...Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God" (Proverbs 2:1, 5). Wisdom’s availability has seemed a little mysterious up to this point. Our first sermon on Job 28 was titled, “Where Is Wisdom?” Job had grown weary of his friends’ counsel. He said: Job 28:12 “But where shall wisdom be found?Job 28:20 “From where, then, does wisdom come? Wisdom looked hard to...
