Preached by PLB

Romans 8:35 – 39 

  1. Introduction 
    • All we are hearing in the media are the negatives.  Deaths vs. Recoveries
    • God will never change.  Egyptians called it a plague.  Children of Israel called it Passover.
    • We need a paradigm shift.
    • Easter celebrates resurrection.
    • Passover celebrates deliverance.
  2. Cautious Optimism 
    • Your beliefs create your reality
    • John 21:  Do you love me more than this?
    • What is influencing your behaviour and reaction at this time?
    • What is God telling you about the times in which we now live?
    • Are you looking and listening?  What do you see and hear?
    • At this time, we can chose God’s promise or redemption, but how?
  3. God’s Promise of Redemption
    • Exodus 8: 22 – 23 a
    • Are you His people? If Jesus were to come today, would you come and reign with Him? Where do you stand with God when His promises are available?
    • What should your attitude be to gain the redemptive promise?
  4. Faith and Trust in God 
    • Use foolish things of this world to confide the wise
    • Hebrews 11:28 – Keep the Passover (change of heart) so your tomorrow shall be okay.
  5. Worship and Obedience 
    • Psalm 95:6 “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneed before the Lord, our Maker!
    • Romans 10:9  Because, if you confess with your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
    • Exodus 12:27 – 28: “The Lord will spare your house, and the people bowed down and worshipped.  It will be well with you.”
  6. Knowledge and Understanding
    • Jeremiah 8:7 – Times and seasons
    • Sanitize your heart with the Word of God
    • Be convicted by the promise that Jesus has given
  7. Approach His Throne
    • Let us pray.
    • Exodus 12:13:  And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are:  and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
