The Origin, Purpose, And Destiny of Man A 3 Cassette-6 Message Album "My life has been brought to an impasse, I loathe existence...Where am I? What is this thing called the world? What does this world mean? Who is it that has lured me into the thing and now leaves me there? Who am I? How did I come into the world? Why was I not made acquainted with its manners and customs? How did I obtain an interest in it? And if I am compelled to take a part in it, where is the director?" These words from generations ago still ring in the hearts of men today. Where did I come from? Is there any meaning and purpose in life? What is my final destiny? These questions are some of the most important that can ever be posed to the human mind. In this cassette series, we will examine these three questions an give solid answers from the Bible. It is only in the Word of God that we can find the direction our longing souls are looking for. Our prayer is that you will be encouraged and your faith strengthened as you listen to these messages.   My Sovereign, My Saviour, My Shepherd An 8 Cassette-15 Message study of the 23rd Psalm with a bonus message: "The Psalm of the Cross" "Into how many dungeons filled with gloom and doubt had this little psalm sung its message of hope and faith. Into how many hearts, bruised and broken by grief has it brought its hymn of comfort and healing! How many darkened prison cells had it lightened and cheered. Into what thousands of sickrooms has it brought its ministry of comfort and support! How many in the hour of pain, has it brought sustaining faith and sang its song of eternal bliss in the valley of the shadow of death! It has charmed more griefs to rest than all the philosophies of the world." -William Evans When David penned this psalm he wrote some of the most beautiful words that would be found in the Bible. It is a passage memorized by children and treasured by adults. But how often do we read Psalm 23 and fail to realize the true depth of of its words. It is our prayer that these messages will draw you closer to the Shepherd of this great psalm.   I Pray for Them A 3 Cassette-5Message Study of John 17 with a bonus message "I pray for them…”These words must have rang with great assurance to the hearts of the disciples. They had heard of Jesus’ departure, Judas’s betrayal, and Peter’s denial. But now the assuring words of Jesus would bring them comfort as He prays to the Father in heaven. Now our hearts can be strengthened and encouraged as we eavesdrop on the prayer of our Lord. For the prayer was not only offered for them but for us as well. Regarding this prayer, Martin Luther said, “This is truly beyond measure a warm and hearty prayer. He opens the depths of His heart, both in reference to us and to His Father, and He pours them all out. It sounds so honest, so simple. It is so deep, so rich, so wide. No one can fathom it.” Another has said “There is no voice which has ever been heard, either in heaven or in the earth, more exalted more holy, more fruitful, more sublime than the prayer offered up by the Son to God Himself.” The author of Hebrews tells us that Jesus is our High Priest and He ever lives to make intercession for us. In this prayer we see a glimpse of the ministry that He now has at the right hand of the Father. Our prayer is that you will be blessed as we look into His prayer.   Triumph in Times of Temptation A 3 Cassette-5 Message Study on the temptations of Christ with bonus message: "The Adversary" We live in times of great temptations. They are continuously calling to us enticing us with a false promise of fulfillment. Despite our best intentions we often yield to their Siren songs and and we are left to face the guilt afterwards. We wonder "is there any way to overcome these temptations?" We cry out, "Is there any deliverance?" Yes there is. And our teacher is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ himself. He was the only one to face temptation and overcome it every time. We can learn from the pattern that he left for us in the Bible. It is our prayer that these messages will help you to stand strong in the Lord and in the power of His might so that you too can overcome the temptations that arise in your life.
