The following is the conclusion from this morning’s sermon followed by a prayer. I know it is odd to give the conclusion away first. However, I hope if you live in the Ticonderoga, NY area that you will join us to see how we will arrive at this conclusion.
I pray in these uncertain days that you and I will see the Lord Jesus in the vision of Isaiah 6 and be filled with confidence. In a world that seems out of control, the Lord Jesus reigns!
CONCLUSION OF SERMON…
There are some key things to keep in mind in these aggravating and uncertain days. They really aren’t uncertain at all. The Lord Jesus is still enthroned. All authority has been given to Him in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18-20). He has died for us to set us free from sin (Titus 2:14). He has made us new (2 Corinthians 5:17). He is in charge of all that is happening in our day. The results of the election are in His plan. The decisions in this COVID time are in His plan. The time of His coming is in His plan. When He comes, He will make all things new. “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20).
Lord Jesus, may we see the vision of You in Isaiah 6 with new eyes. Isaiah saw Your glory and spoke of You. Enable us to know You as You truly are. May we rest assured that You are high and lifted up with all authority in heaven and earth. May we rejoice that our King has come. Our God has come and lived with us. You, our King, were lifted up on the cross in our place for our sin. You have satisfied the wrath of God on our behalf. You have crushed Satan’s head. You have judged the world. You have risen from the dead. You have ascended to the Father’s right hand. You are coming again to exercise judgement. You are coming to make all things new. May we rejoice that we are participants in this new creation. Cause us to look for Your return with eagerness. “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus”
