Awakening Awe

Sermon by Dr. Jim Willingham

The stone [which] the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.

This was the LORD’s doing; It [is] marvelous in our eyes.

This [is] the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.

Blessed [is] he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.

God [is] the LORD, And He has given us light; Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.

You [are] my God, and I will praise You; [You are] my God, I will exalt You.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for [He is] good! For His mercy [endures] forever.

– Psalm 118:22-29

I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified [themselves] against their border.

Therefore [as] I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, [even] the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.

This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified [themselves] against the people of the LORD of hosts.

The LORD [will be] terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and [men] shall worship him, every one from his place, [even] all the isles of the heathen.

Ye Ethiopians also, ye [shall be] slain by my sword.

– Zephaniah 2:8-12
