SERMON TOPIC: Jesus in the Old Testament - Part 4a
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 23 November 2014
Topic Groups: TYPOLOGY, NEW COVENANT, JESUS
Sermon synopsis: Joseph’s brothers were angry when he foretold that one day they would have to bow down to him. Some wanted to kill him and others thought that by selling him into slavery they had thwarted any fulfillment of his dreams forever.
But there came a day when they had to bow the knee to Joseph as the ruler in Egypt, who was the only one who could supply their desperate need during the famine.
Today there are those who refuse to acknowledge Jesus as Lord of their life. They try to silence his voice and scoff at the thought of being subservient to him. But whether they choose to serve him in this life or not, the day will come when they will have to bow before him and confess him as Lord. Even those who reject Jesus now, will ultimately have to bow the knee to him.
Phil 2:10-11 … that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
