The Holy Spirit Makes Every Christmas Possible 1

The Sermon: 2 Peter 1: 19-21 19 And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Divine Justice in Our Lord’s 2nd Coming

The Sermon: 2 Thessalonians 1 : 3-11 We ought always to thank God for you, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love you have for one another is increasing.Therefore, among God’s churches we commend your perseverance and faith in all the  persecutions and trials you are enduring.   All this is evidence that God’s judgment is righteous, and as a result you will be counted worthy in the kingdom of God, for which you suffer.

This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God & believe the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.
