Gregg Strawbridge - Understanding the Times (7 mp3s)
This series was preached at All Saints Presbyterian from August-October, 2003.
Summary: The Scriptures repeatedly speak of the disobedience of specific generations: the generation of the wicked at the time of the flood, the generation in the wilderness that broke covenant with God, the generation of Christ-rejecting Jews suffered judgment in the destruction of Jerusalem. Also, there those individuals that are commended for faithfulness like Abel, Enoch, Noah, Rahab, and many others who stood against the spirit of the age. Acts 13:36 speaks of how David, “after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep.” David, like Noah before him served God in his distinctive time and believed God for great things, beginning with Goliath’s head. This requires faithfulness to our Lord and seeing our place in history. We must be like sons of Issachar who “had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do” (1Chr 12:32). We need grace to live faithfully and Spirit-powered discernment to understand our times.
