Sermons, Bible Classes and Other Addresses by Denny Hartford, Director of Vital Signs Ministries
Trees in the Bible #7
Two passages, 2 Samuel 5: 22-25 and I Chronicles 4: 13-17 touch on an event in David's military career.
Trees in the Bible #5
This sermon looks at passages from the Old Testament where trees are used as word pictures, as memorable metaphors that teach some really wonderful and inspiring spiritual truths.
Tree in the Bible #2: "Two Trees of Eden"
There are many, many trees in Eden but the two trees this sermon will concentrate on are the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in Genesis 2: 7-9, 15-17 and 3: 1-24.
Trees in the Bible #1
Genesis 1: 11-16, 29-31 and 2:4-9 reveal a simple yet profound story that will make one stop and think. It also may never let you look at trees (and flowers and vegetables and grass) in quite the same way ever again.
Psalm 130 is a very moving, very interesting song. It is short, only 8 verses, but it is one of the most vocally read psalms in history.
Chapter 6 picks up where Chapter 4 left off. Nehemiah and the others keep working and keep a watchful eye on the opposition leaders who don't want the wall around Jerusalem completed.
The first 12 minutes of this recording deals with the consequences when the boundary stones are moved. Then we have more examples from Nehemiah that we should emulate.
Nehemiah 3 "Repairing the Walls"
Chapter 3 gives a rich emphasis to the singularity of the task of repairing the walls but one accomplished by a striking diversity of workers.
Nehemiah 2: 1-10
Nehemiah's next steps for a new start include prayer and study. And his actions bring about a big risk, a big reward, a big responsibility and a big reaction from Israel's enemies.
The Prodigal Prophet Meets the Great Fish
Jonah found out that doing it his way instead of depending on God was a bad move.
