Sermon synopsis: The Bible acknowledges the issue of suffering as part of the human condition.

The book of Job, one of the longer books in the Bible, is dedicated solely to the question of suffering. Likewise the books of Jeremiah and Habakkuk have much to say about it. Much of 1 Peter and Hebrews is about the suffering and persecution of Christians. Many of Paul’s letters were written from prison. About one third of the Psalms, the prayers of the OT, are cries that arise out of doubt, disappointment, or pain.

Gavin-Paynter/20100821_The-Purpose-of-Suffering.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The Purpose of Suffering

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 21 August 2010

Topic Groups: PERSECUTION, SUFFERING, PROBLEM OF EVIL

Sermon synopsis: The Bible gives a good deal of attention to the reality of suffering.
It does not regard it as an illusion as some religions and sects do, nor deal with it superficially.
CAN SUFFERING BE GOD’S WILL.
Peter writes, “So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator…” (1 Pet 4:19) It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. (1 Pet 3:17)


Ken-Paynter/Ken-Paynter.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: Persecution

Speaker: Ken Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 27 July 2008

Topic Groups: SUFFERING, PERSECUTION

Sermon synopsis: Sometimes in our trials and difficulties we feel isolated and alone. We may try and project an image that everything’s okay when inside we’re hurting.

In Jesus’ parable the storm came to both the man with his house built on the sand and the man with his house built on the rock – what is important is having the right foundation.

Besides the suffering that is common to all men, true Christians will suffer persecution when they become a threat to the powers of darkness.

A leader of a Chinese homecell asked the members “What wounds have you received for Christ this week?”

If you threaten the evil in your area, persecution will come but you can choose to live in ease if you pose no threat to Satan.

Are you a threat to Satan? Are you in enough trouble for Jesus?

Richard-Wurmbrand/Richard-Wurmbrand.jpg

SERMON TOPIC: The Church Triumphant under Communism

Speaker: Richard Wurmbrand

Language: ENGLISH

Date:

Topic Groups: THE CHURCH, PERSECUTION, SUFFERING

Sermon synopsis: Wurmbrand, who passed through the penal facilities of Craiova, Gherla, the Danube-Black Sea Canal, Vacaresti, Malmaison, Cluj, and ultimately Jilava, spent three years in solitary confinement. His wife, Sabina, was arrested in 1950 and spent three years of penal labour on the Canal.

Pastor Wurmbrand was released in 1956, after eight and a half years, and, although warned not to preach, resumed his work in the underground church. He was arrested again in 1959, and sentenced to 25 years. During his imprisonment, he was beaten and tortured.

Eventually, he was the recipient of an amnesty in 1964.
He became known as the 'The Voice of the Underground Church', doing much to publicize the persecution of Christians in Communist countries.

In April of 1967, the Wurmbrands formed Jesus to the Communist World (later named The Voice of the Martyrs), an interdenominational organization working initially with and for persecuted Christians in Communist countries, but later expanding its activities to help persecuted believers in other places, especially in the Muslim world.
The Voice of the Martyrs opened a printing facility and bookstore in Bucharest. He preached about God together with pastor Ioan Panican.

Richard Wurmbrands best-known book is entitled 'Tortured for Christ', released in 1967.

Wurmbrand died in Glendale, California. In 2006, he came fifth among the greatest Romanians according to the Mari Români poll.

SERMON TOPIC: How to forgive

Speaker: Corrie Ten Boom

Language: ENGLISH

Date:

Topic Groups: FORGIVENESS, PERSECUTION, SUFFERING

Sermon synopsis: Corrie Ten Boom's family sheltered Jews in Holland during the Holocaust.
She subsequently lost her freedom, her dignity, and her beloved sister and father in the Nazi concentration camps. In God’s providence Corrie was released due to a clerical error, just one week before the other women in Ravensbruck her age were executed.
After the Second World War Corrie was invited to speak all over the world, and she traveled the globe telling people about Christ and his love.
She understood that everyone who had received God’s forgiveness had no choice but to show forgiveness to others; and she knew from her own life experience that that wasn’t always easy.
