The Book of Hebrews
In this classic sermon by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, he exposits Hebrews 13:11-12 and the effect of the meaning of the cross. The world believes that the cross was not historical or possible. Yet, directing our attention the epistle and the Bible, Dr. Lloyd-Jones reminds us that the Calvary was not an accident or tragedy – it was a decisive act of God and the means to save and bring His people back to His presence. The cross also fulfills all the Old Testament prophecies and promises.
In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones addresses the congregation with Hebrews 13:8. He encourages listeners that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. In this lengthy address, Dr. Lloyd-Jones provides an overview of some of the issues the world has faced in the past century. He says he is deeply thankful to be preaching in the 20th century, in which the world is confused and scared, the human soul is searching for a solution, and the Church is less characterized by empty religion. Throughout history, and most recently in the last two centuries, humans have become increasingly convinced of their own strength and have delusions of answers to the universe's problem; whether scientific, philosophical, or psychological. He says that these human solutions are all wrong. Rather, the Christian is to look to Christ, who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Looking to our unchanging God provides consolation that no worldly solution can offer. Jesus of Nazareth came into this world as the Son of God in order to rescue sinners from their well-deserved eternal damnation. He died for us, and was raised again, giving us eternal security if we choose to have faith in Him.
