The Promise of His Coming (Isaiah 11:1-10)

November 27, 2016 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: Christmas in Isaiah - Advent 2016

Topic: Sermons Passage: Isaiah 11:1–10

Well, hopefully you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. While it’s a great day to be with family and friends, for many folks, it can be a little stressful too. Mostly because it’s spent with family and friends. I hope that good food and good fellowship made it a day where each of us is reminded of just how much we really do have to be thankful for.

Of course, starting with Thanksgiving we head into the holiday season of shopping, parties, decorating, wrapping, and all-around hecticness. For some it’s also a time of great loneliness, heartache, and wistful anxiety. However, at the same time, the church begins the season of Advent. And Advent is a time of waiting. Waiting for the arrival of the Christ Child who has come to bring peace to overly rushed lives and overly anxious hearts.

This year, we’re going to be doing the Advent sermon series, “Christmas in Isaiah.” From now through January 1st, we’ll be looking at six promises from the Prophet Isaiah that directly relate to the person and work of Jesus Christ. It should be a good series. We’re starting this Sunday with “The Promise of His Coming” from Isaiah 11:1-10.

Of course, this forces us to ask the question, “Who is coming?” “Why should we care?” and “What difference will it make?” We’ll travel back to the Old Testament time that came right before the exile. A time of great stress and overly anxious hearts. Let’s learn together how the messianic promises in Isaiah can calm our hearts this Advent season. See you Sunday, Dr. Dave
