In this sermon series, we studied the Biblical, theological and historical aspects of the church, and the metaphorical names used to refer to and symbolize it. We began with the ancient Paradise in creation (Genesis 2), the Garden of Eden, and came full circle to the future Paradise of God in the new heaven and new earth (Revelation 2:7; 22:1-5). “This church has existed from the beginning of the world and will last until the end “(Belgic Confession).

It is true that “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come” (1844) has overtones of joy at harvest time. In Stanza 1, the people are exhorted to sing in thankfulness for the harvest “safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin” since “doth provide for our wants to be supplied.” However, the reference to a joyful harvest time ends here. In the next three stanzas, the theme unexpectedly shifts to Jesus’ Parable of the Wheat and Weeds (Matthew 13).
And let everyone that is yet out of Christ, and hanging over the pit of hell, whether they be old men and women, or middle aged, or young people, or little children, now hearken to the loud calls of God’s word and providence. Therefore, let everyone that is out of Christ, now awake and fly from the wrath to come… Let everyone fly out of Sodom: “Haste and escape for your lives, look not behind you, escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed.”
When Israel clamored for a king, God declared, “They have rejected me from being king over them.” This 12-part series will survey the life and times of a sampling of the kings of the united monarchy, and later, the southern kingdom of Judah. We read in Scriptures that most of them were evil in the sight of the LORD, but a few did what was right and good in the sight of the LORD, and a few others did both good and evil in the sight of the LORD.
