Don’t Let this Happen to You, or Yours

SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF
AN ANGRY GOD

-Their foot shall slide in due time- Deut. 32:35

This is a classic sermon, perhaps the most famous sermon ever recorded in America, preached by Jonathan Edwards. Mr. Edwards is credited with helping start the second great spiritual awakening in America with this sermon. It was delivered in 1741, a time when emotionalism in the pulpit was in great disfavor. Mr. Edwards made sure no emotionalism was displayed in his reading of this sermon. It was read in poor lighting and with the full manuscript in hand. Still, people came under mighty conviction during the message–some shouting, “My Lord, man! Do something to save us!!!” Grown men grasp the pillars to keep from sliding into Hell. Powerful message that deserves your full and prayerful attention. –Editor

-Their foot shall slide in due time- Deut. 32:35
In this verse is threatened the vengeance of God on the wicked unbelieving Israelites, who were God’s visible people, and who lived under the means of grace; but who, notwithstanding all God’s wonderful works towards them, remained (as ver. 28.) void of counsel, having no understanding in them. Under all the cultivations of heaven, they brought forth bitter and poisonous fruit; as in the two verses next preceding the text. The expression I have chosen for my text, Their foot shall slide in due time, seems to imply the following doings, relating to the punishment and destruction to which these wicked Israelites were exposed.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
