Introduction - Robert J Morgan is the teaching pastor at Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, Tennessee and is well known for expository messages that are rich in excellent illustrations of Biblical principles.
These sermons are older messages preached on various passages in Psalms.
Four stanzas of three verses each, and every stanza has a different speaker. The World Speaks—Key Word: Plotting In the first stanza, the world is speaking and the key word is "plotting." Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
"Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters." In other words, the world is in turmoil for one very simple reason—the world is in rebellion against God and against His Anointed One.
So in stanza one, the world is speaking: Let us break their chains and throw off their fetters.
The Father Speaks—Key Word: Laughing Well, what is the Lord’s response?
I’ve been reading about the Yalta Conference between Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt.Every time you and I fill our cars with gas, we are unwittingly helping finance the most accelerated and massive military buildup in the world today as the Arab nations of the Middle East build up their arsenals and armories, and, of course, they only really have one enemy—the little nation of Israel, so narrow that an F-16 can fly across it in seconds.There is a worldwide rebellion against submission to the Lordship of Christ, and that same rebellion cuts through our own hearts.When they heard this, they raised their voices together in a prayer to God."Sovereign Lord," they said, "You made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.
There was a movie a few years ago entitled "The Heart is a Rebel," and all of us, left to ourselves, are in rebellion against God. We want to go our own way, to do our own thing, to live the way we feel like living.
