Life is hectic, especially for preachers and teachers. If you are a parson,
priest or person who teaches religious knowledge, but just cannot find the time to
study, then these articles will interest you. They are all Bible-based and arranged in
subject oriented categories. Bible texts are often quoted in full.
Sabbath services can be created by using articles from the A Voice In The Wilderness
Sermon Directory, coupling them with the appropriate hymns and music found in the
A Voice In The Wilderness Hymnal.
The Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. How little is heard these
days about the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. Module by module we shall
be taking you through studies of awesome fact concerning our Heavenly Father.
The Saviour, the only begotten Son of the Almighty; the one who died on Calvary
to save mankind from annihilation. Were we to outline a million sermons on this
one person, we would still not encompass all there is to tell. But we will
make a start.
The Comforter, the very presence of the Almighty: His gifts, His work and the
fruit He produces in the lives of true believers. Here we also include spiritual
concepts, values and disciplines of eternal worth; i.e. truth, faith, love, joy,
peace, humility, faithfulness, sacrifice and spiritual endurance etc.
(Holy and Unholy): Their role in the courts of heaven. Every module will contain
examples of angel ministry and involvement with humans. Subjects such as temptation,
violence, revolution and anarchy - areas in which evil angels specialise - will
also be discussed.
Little is heard these days about Yahweh's law, the constitution of the mighty
universe. Our plan is to include a sermon in each module on the law of the Most
High. It will define sin, outline the penalty for transgression and point to the
Saviour; who alone is able to save the sinner from sin and its consequences - death!
Here is another subject no preacher will ever exhaust. Every module will examine
some aspect of the great Plan of Salvation. Who then can be saved? Saved by who,
how, when and from what? These questions will be answered in this section.
Did you know that about a third of the Bible is given over to prophecy? Is your
congregation studying Bible prophecy? Are they able to interpret the daily newspapers
in the light of the Scriptures; or are they secretly terrified of the things that
are happening on earth? A balanced spiritual diet calls for at least one sermon
every quarter on Bible prophecy. This could be that sermon.
What proportion of your fellowship is praying every day? People are anxious to eat
the right foods, to regularly exercise and to wear the right clothes; but how many
pray on a regular basis - and with effect? The Bible contains scores of examples of
answered prayer, spectacular responses by the Most High in answer to the prayers of
His people. Some of those prayers will be the subjects of sermons.
Here is a collection of sacred songs, testimonies and observations that have stood
the test of time. Countless millions of believers in all ages have benefited from
the Psalms. Each module will include a sermon based on a Psalm or Proverb.
The Saviour said:
“I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter
things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
(Matthew 13:35) Jesus used parables to unlock age-old mysteries. Often they mystified
and confused some of his hearers; but to others they were the key that opened the storehouse
of spiritual understanding. Each module will contain a key sermon based on a parable.
Remember, parables were given to unveil spiritual concepts and truths hidden since the
foundation of the world.
In this section we will take a brief look at Yahweh's followers, the Bible greats:
men and women whose lives have been the subject of study by millions. Why did Yahweh
bless them? What was their secret? Can we ever hope to do as well as they did? These
and many other questions will be answered.
It would be limiting to say the least to restrict ourselves to the above mentioned
eleven subjects no matter how worthy each obviously is: so we have left one sermon
unclassified, to allow ourselves the opportunity to include any subject outside the
listed range. Examples are: the family, missionary work, entertainment, recreation,
study, friendship etc. These and many other unclassified subjects will be placed in
