A Call To Worship

King David wrote in Psalm 30:4,5: ”Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Hymn—“We’re Marching To Zion”

Scripture Reading—Psalm 146:1-10

”Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever: which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners: the LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous: the LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down. The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.”

Opening Prayer

Hymn—“When We All Get To Heaven”


Hymn—“O For An Overcoming Faith”

Sermon—“Death And Translation”

Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• Reviewing the main structure of Genesis 5:1-6:8
• Showing the main structure of Genesis 5:3-32
• Showing how eight of the ten tables of descendants end with a record of death, whereas two of the tables end with a record of life
• Showing the relationship between Enoch and Noah, both of which end with a record of life, but where Enoch was translated that he should not see death, Noah stands as the representative of new life in a new world
• Showing how death and translation are not only fundamental doctrines of the faith, but also among the most practical and relevant considerations of one’s life
• Using the framework of sovereign grace as a backdrop, death and translation are illustrated and explained

Hymn—“My Soul, This Curious House Of Clay”

Closing Prayer


We had fainted, unless we had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Let us wait on the Lord: let us be of good courage, and He shall strengthen our hearts. We say again, let us wait on the Lord. Amen.
