A Kingdom Which Cannot Be Removed
A Sermon on Hebrews 12:28-29Read more
In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones exposits Hebrews 12:28-29 and its surrounding verses to call the listeners to heed the call to repentance by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, should not be refused. While the misconceptions and vain philosophies of this age will soon fade, Jesus’s Gospel and Kingdom is eternal, and they will be unshakeable throughout all ages. More importantly, all people will pass, along with this world, and they will have to give account to every thought and deed. The judgement of God will be inescapable, but those who believe in God’s way of salvation through God’s Son will join Him in His everlasting Kingdom. Since Jesus sits on the throne and rules His Kingdom forever, Christians will be in His Kingdom forever. We will be considered as heirs and firstborns in His family. In contrast, those who refuse the One who speaks, and trust in their own abilities, will be judged eternally. They will be cast away with the worldly kingdoms and its ruler, the devil. Which kingdom would you like to be? Should you believe in yourself or should you believe in Jesus the King of the unshakeable Kingdom? Listen, now, to this powerful and convicting message by Dr. Lloyd-Jones.

About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
