In the days of those kings, God will set up a kingdom. Daniel chapter 2 verse 44
Daniel was carried into exile to Babylon about 605 BC (Dan. 1:1-7; 2:25b).
The prophet Jeremiah lived before and through the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians in 586 B.C.
One of Jeremiah’s many prophecies before that disaster is as follows:
1. The promise of the new covenant (vv. 31, 32)
2. Some of the provisions of the new covenant (vv. 33, 34)
There were many people of tremendous faith in the bible and in this mornings sermon we look at Abraham. Spending the majority of his life in his father house it would appear like a failure to launch for Abraham until he received a Promise from God that he will have a legacy and land to call his own. Abraham knew the promise of physical land didn’t compare to the promise of an eternity in heaven. Because of his Faith in that promise and ultimately in God many have access to this same promise through Christ Jesus. Join us in learning more about his wonderful gift of salvation through todays sermon. Enjoy.

David’s Song (also recorded as Psalm 18) is first and foremost a prophesy of the coming Messiah, as it says things which cannot be said of any ordinary man.
However, it is also a summary and reflection of the life of David, who sang this song “in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.” And thus we consider the great drama of the life of David with it’s many ups and downs, and see how through it all, David was faithful to the LORD (despite his many sins and shortcomings), and the LORD rewarded David and delivered him from his enemies.
All of this serves to place David as a witness for us to the faithfulness of God. Why should we believe this prophesy of a faithful Messiah who is delivered from His enemies…? Because David was a faithful man whom God delivered from his enemies.
David’s life is the perfect testament to the faithfulness of God towards those who serve Him
