I’d like to commend an excellent, thought-provoking, and heart-warming sermon on the sufferings of Christ. It was preached yesterday by my own Pastor, Rev. Foppe Vanderzwaag. He took us on a tour of Gethsemane, Gabbatha and Golgotha. You can listen to it here.

I also preached a couple of times yesterday. Here’s a quick outline of my sermon on 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10.

1. Christ’s Entrance

  • The Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven (v. 7)

2. Christ’s Entourage

  • With his mighty angels (v. 7)

3. Christ’s Execution

  • In flaming fire (v. 8)
  • Taking vengeance (v. 8)
  • He will punish (v. 9)
  • With everlasting destruction (v. 9)

4. Christ’s Enemies

  • They know not God (v. 8)
  • They obey not the Gospel (v. 8)

5. Christ’s Expulsion

  • Banished from the Lord’s gracious presence (v. 9)
  • Banished from the Lord’s glorious power (v. 9)

6. Christ’s End

  • He will be glorified in His people (v. 10)
  • He will be admired by His people (v. 10)

Here’s the link, as requested.

    Dear Dr. David, could you perhaps add the link to your 2 Thess. sermon also? It is simply one of those must-hear-sermons! May God be gracious to his people and give for more messages like this. Blessings.
