The Human Plight
The story of the Gadarene demoniac is a remarkable picture of humanity without Christ. Mankind has been plunged into a captivity of darkness and all of man’s attempts to free himself fail. This is a story that finds relevancy today almost 2000 years later as nations, societies, and cultures self-destruct.
The story of the battle of Jericho and Rahab’s deliverance is a picture of the Gospel. In this message, Michael Durham unpacks the symbolism and takes a direct line to the great covenant of God with the Son and the His people.
The Willingness of God and Faith
We know God can do anything within the confines of His nature. However, when it comes to prayer and faith we struggle whether or not if God is willing to do what we ask of Him. The miracle of Jesus healing the leper tells us much about praying in faith. There is also a great illustration of God willingness to save in the leper’s cleansing.
A Generational Duty
God has commanded parents, and fathers in particularly, to instill into their children the revelation of God and His truth. Unfortunately, many Christian parents have failed to do this, and the children have abandoned the Christian faith altogether. In this message, we look at what the Psalmist said was parental responsibility in very practical way. We must hold the Gospel rope for the future generation.
