Nahum: Comfort From a Jealous God

by Pastor Timothy

Nahum has been called the sequel to Jonah. The subject matter of both short prophetic books involves the Assyrian empire and its great capital, Nineveh. Jonah highlighted the mercy of God towards a cruel people as they repented of their sins and cried out to God for mercy. Nahum, however, emphasizes the righteous judgment that […]

A Lesson In Compassion

by Pastor Timothy

After all the mercy that God had shown Jonah, we find in chapter 4 that Jonah needs mercy yet again. Is this just common to Jonah? Hardly. Every believer has need of God’s mercy and longsuffering again and again and again. Having said that, it is still rather jarring to find where Jonah’s heart and […]

What is the Sign of Jonah? 

by Pastor Timothy

Last time we mentioned we would bring one last post on God’s mercy in Jonah. Allow me to jump ahead to this theme of Jonah, in hopes of returning the final installment on mercy next time.  “Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. […]

God Mercifully Spreads The Good News

by Pastor Timothy

We noted in our last post that God, in mercy, ran after Jonah when Jonah was fleeing from God’s command. God overtook him, saved him from drowning and restored his soul. The same Jonah who was running away from the presence of the Lord was now a man who was earnestly seeking God’s face. God’s […]

God’s Mercy In Jonah

by Pastor Timothy

In our last post, we noted the sovereignty of God as one of the themes highlighted in the book of Jonah. We must always remember that the Scriptures reveal the nature and character of God to us. God is rightly known, understood and worshipped through the revelation given of Him in the Scriptures. The book […]

A Prayer for The Spread of The Gospel

by Pastor Timothy

Almighty God, we live in a spiritual wasteland. You are ignored, blasphemed and minimized. Your Word is perverted or rejected or forgotten. Christ is not held in high esteem. Unbelief is commonplace. False prophets are many. Men do that which is right in their own eyes. The corrupting effects of sin are rampant. We pray […]

God Rules

by Pastor Timothy

Currently at Collierville PBC, I am preaching through the book of Jonah. It has been a rich study for me, and I hope the congregation has been blessed as well. In such a short book (4 chapters), many rich, prominent theological themes are seen. Today, I will look out at how Jonah highlights the Sovereignty […]

He Hears Me!

by Pastor Timothy

“I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.” Psalm 116:1 There are an abundance of things to stir up our love for God. Forgiveness of sin, redemption from ruin, and the prospect of eternal life would be a few at the top of the list. But, how precious is the […]

Open Thy Mouth Wide!

by Pastor Timothy

“I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Psalm 81:10 The image of a baby bird craning its’ beak wide open in request and expectancy for it to be filled with food from an attentive parent is a fitting […]

Travel Diaries

by Pastor Timothy

“These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron. And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according to their goings out.” Numbers […]
