of God in the Life of Job
Farenhorst in Christian Renewal: While
reading these sermons both my husband and myself
became convinced of the fact that Rev. Sietsma
was a compassionate and caring shepherd. His
concern for and knowledge of the sheep in his
care is obvious. The message of the all-powerful
providential hand of God, so necessary for our
own time, is conveyed.
Book of Job Age: 16-99
Sample intro and verse of the Dort
2 Samuel 23
words of David, in which he testifies of his
calling from God to the royal and prophetical
office, v. 1. He prophesies of the Messiah Jesus
Christ, and the blessed salvation under His
reign, with the acknowledgment of the faults of
his house, and a confession of his confidence in
God's everlasting covenant of grace, v. 3. He
announces everlasting destruction to the ungodly,
v. 6. A history of David's heroes and their
courage, v. 8.
these are the last words1
of David. David the son of Jesse says, and the
man who was raised up on high, the anointed2
of the God of Jacob, and pleasant in
Psalms3 of Israel, says:
Before his death, according to the example of
Jacob in Gen. 49, and of Moses in Deut. 32 &
Lifted up from low conditions and anointed as
king over the people of God.
Which he wrote for the church of God by the
inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
