Faithful God (Part Four): A Passionate Plea

The book of Hosea goes back and forth between the portrayal of God and His faithless people (Israel) and Hosea and His faithless bride (Gomer), with the various players involved relating seamlessly and the scenes shifting suddenly. In this section of Hosea's prophecy, the scene shifts again, back to the household of Hosea, and his plea with Gomer to turn from her adulterous ways and to return to him. At the same time, the God of Israel is making a similar plea—through Hosea--to the people of Israel, as He urges this apostate nation to return to Him, or else face dire consequences for their wickedness and idolatry. In this sermon, "A Passionate Plea," Pastor Jesse Randolph addresses these and other matters in his verse-by-verse exposition of Hosea 2:2-13.

Old School Repentance

The Old Testament, though often neglected by Christians today, is full of applicable truths. One account that holds much application for us is the narrative surrounding King Manasseh and his radical repentance. In this sermon, Pastor Jesse unpacks this account as seen in 2 Chron. 33. The narrative of Manasseh tells of a shockingly wicked Jewish king who sacrifices his children to false gods, practices witchcraft, and promotes idolatry in the very Temple of Yahweh. Yet unexpectedly, we see his heart change as he turns to the Lord in true repentance. Unpack this amazing example of repentance - and be challenged to turn away from the sin in your own life.

Running Rebel (Part Ten): The Rebuke

Can you imagine being angry about God's mercy? What about if His mercy was directed toward your worst enemies? That's the situation in which Jonah found himself - and now God was ready to respond to the prophet's anger. In this sermon, Pastor Jesse concludes the book of Jonah by walking us through Jonah 4:5-11, where we see Jonah's failings and God's sovereignty in unusual and interesting ways. You'll see how God is sovereign, merciful, and RIGHT, and how rebellious men (like Jonah, and like us) are not.

Running Rebel (Part Nine ): The Reaction

Jonah is the prophet of unpredictability. First he did the opposite of what God told him to do. Then he finally did what God said and saw amazing results - but we see in this sermon that he is actually miserable over those results. Here Pastor Jesse walks us through Jonah 4:1-5, showing us a prophet who is petulant, sulking, and critical of the God who abounds in grace and loving-kindness. Discover the merciful and compassionate character of God, and be reminded NOT to act like Jonah in response to Him.
