Revelation 4 and 5 (which are of one piece) take us to the very throne room of heaven from which all the events of history must be viewed. God's dealings with the church and his dealings with the world, alike, must be viewed from this vantage point. Central to it all is the Lamb, who rules over both the Church and the world, for the good of his people.
Great Sermon! When I'm in need I look for a Noel Due sermon. Always fed, never disappointed.
The Source of Anxiety There is no need to elaborate on this message. It is "spot on." It should be seriously considered by all Christians, weak and mature in the faith.
Well Delivered With all the frenzy we're subjected to in this fallen, evil world that lies in the lap of the evil one, this is a timely message. It causes the believer to rest in the care of the one "in whom we live and move and have our being." We are the Lord's. We do not fear as the heathen; for He does not give us the spirit of fear. This message will give us the sound mind and quiet spirit.
The sovereignty of the Lamb of God is realized, and we settle in our hearts that the word of God is established forever. It is finished! And it was so from the foundation of the world.
I thank God for this sermon.
