King Over the Flood

Cary Cox, from Genesis 7-8:19 (Genesis Study 20). The account of the Flood is written in a way to draw our attention to God himself. He is sovereign over all that is happening; he reigns as King over the Flood, Lord of the chaos, God over all! He is showcasing the glory of his wrath in judging sin, and he is displaying the glory of his mercy in saving his covenant people. We can trust him in the chaos and the storm.

Freefall Part 2

Cary Cox, from Genesis 6:1-8 (Genesis Study 18). In part 1, we focused on man’s increasing sinfulness in the days before the flood (Gen 6:1-4). Now, we look at the response of God to man’s sin in verses 5-8. God’s word in this passage takes us to the very heart of God, and reveals him to us as the God of great wrath against sin, and also the God of surprising grace!

God’s Punishment of Sin – Nahum Study 3

Cary Cox, from Nahum chapter 3. Nahum shows us that God is justified to punish Nineveh for their sins. He is right and good in the expression of his fierce anger. God is glorious when he punishes sin, and glorious when he forgives sin. Christ took the wrath of God at the cross for us, so that we could experience the mercy of God in him!

I Am Against You – Nahum Study 2

Cary Cox, from Nahum 2:1-13. Nahum vividly describes the coming defeat of Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. God declares that he is “against” them. Who is God against? Who is he for?

The Fierce Anger of God – Nahum Study 1

Cary Cox, from Nahum ch1. What happened to Nineveh after they repented at the preaching of Jonah? Nahum tells us the rest of the story, and reveals God as the glorious and powerful God of wrath and vengeance against his enemies. God will destroy the wicked, and he will rescue and comfort his people!

The Whole World Accountable to God – Romans Study 13

Cary Cox, from Romans 3:19-20. There is nothing we can say to clear our guilt before God. There is nothing we can do to rescue ourselves from his righteous wrath and judgment. There is only Christ! The gospel removes every false hope until only Christ remains. Hope in him!

The Just Judgment of God Part 4 – Romans Study 10

Cary Cox, from Romans 2:12-29. Paul removes all excuses from Jews and Gentiles. He kicks away everything we might trust in to protect us from the wrath of God, to show us how great is our need for Jesus Christ!

The Just Judgment of God Part 3 – Romans Study 9

Cary Cox, from Romans 2:6-11. God will judge all people according to our works – what we have done, and what we seek in life. We will give an account for the outward things, and for our hearts. Christ is our only hope!

The Righteous Wrath of God – Romans Study 6

Cary Cox, from Romans 1:18-23. Why do we need to be saved? Because God is righteous and we are rebels against him! The first major section of Romans deals with the wrath of God. We tend to avoid this subject today, but it is absolutely essential to understanding the gospel of Christ. What is God’s wrath, and how can we be saved from it?

God of Justice and Mercy – Joshua Study 7

Cary Cox, from Joshua 5:13-6:27. In the battle of Jericho God reveals himself as the God of both fierce judgment and glorious salvation. We examine what the Bible says about the conquest of the land: God’s justice to destroy the people of Canaan, and his great mercy on his people in Christ!

Shrink Back or Draw Near? – Hebrews Study 25

Cary Cox, from Hebrews 10:26-39. The powerful warnings of Hebrews come to a climax, as two paths are set before us: We can shrink back from the church and ultimately from Christ, and face the fiery judgment of God. Or, we can draw near in faith until the end with the people of God, and receive the reward.

Live Out the Transformation Pt1 – Put Off – Christ Our Life 13

Cary Cox, from Colossians 3:1-11. It is impossible to live the Christian life without experiencing the miracle of conversion. But since believers are united with Christ through conversion, we are empowered to live Christ-centered lives. This involves “changing clothes” each day: putting off things that do not honor Christ, and putting on lives that are consistent with Christ-centeredness. First, we look at the “dirty clothes” to remove.

Kingdom35 – Prepare for the Kingdom – Matt3

Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 3:1-12.

Imagine a time when no one had heard of Jesus Christ! Suddenly, after 400 years of silence from God, a man in the desert begins to shout about repentance. God’s kingdom is breaking into this world! We look at the link between God’s kingdom and his judgment of sinners. Repent!
