Life is hectic, especially for preachers and teachers. If you are a
parson, priest or person who teaches religious knowledge, but just cannot
find the time to study, then these Notes will
interest you. They are all Bible-based and mostly arranged in modules of 12
sermons each. Bible texts are often quoted in full, so they may be used even by those who do not possess a Bible. Browse through them and select a Note for your next sermon or Bible study. See the Introduction for more details.

Each Module contains a sermon on each of the 12 subjects listed below. In the process of time you may wish to do a series of talks on one
particular subject: several sermons on, say, Yahweh the Almighty God
of Israel or about His only begotten Son Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ. The list below will help you locate all the sermons on the subject of your choice.
- YAHWEH: The Father of our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ. How little is heard these days about the LORD God of
Abraham, Isaac and Israel. Module by module we shall be taking you
through studies of awesome fact concerning our Heavenly Father.
- YESHUA (JESUS) the Saviour, the only
begotten Son of the Almighty; the one who died on Calvary to save
mankind from annihilation. Were we to outline a million sermons on
this one person, we would still not encompass all there is to tell.
But we will make a start.
- THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Comforter, the
very presence of the Almighty: His gifts, His work and the fruit He
produces in the lives of true believers. Here we also include
spiritual concepts, values and disciplines of eternal worth; i.e.
truth, faith, love, joy, peace, humility, faithfulness, sacrifice and
spiritual endurance etc.
- ANGELS (Holy and Unholy): Their role
in the courts of heaven. Every module will contain examples of angel
ministry and involvement with humans. Subjects such as temptation,
violence, revolution and anarchy - areas in which evil angels
specialise - will also be discussed.
- YAHWEH'S LAW: Little is heard these
days about Yahweh's law, the constitution of the mighty universe. Our
plan is to include a sermon in each module on the law of the Most
High. It will define sin, outline the penalty for transgression and
point to the Saviour; who alone is able to save the sinner from sin and its consequences - death!
- SALVATION: Here is another subject
no preacher will ever exhaust. Every module will examine some aspect
of the great Plan of Salvation. Who then can be saved? Saved by who, how, when and from what? These questions will be answered in this section.
- PROPHECY: Did you know that about a
third of the Bible is given over to prophecy? Is your congregation
studying Bible prophecy? Are they able to interpret the daily
newspapers in the light of the Scriptures; or are they secretly
terrified of the things that are happening on earth? A balanced
spiritual diet calls for at least one sermon every quarter on Bible
prophecy. This could be that sermon.
- PRAYER, PRAISE, THANKSGIVING: What
proportion of your fellowship is praying every day? People are
anxious to eat the right foods, to regularly exercise and to wear the
right clothes; but how many pray on a regular basis - and with effect? The Bible contains
scores of examples of answered prayer, spectacular responses by the
Most High in answer to the prayers of His people. Some of those
prayers will be the subjects of sermons.
- THE PSALMS: Here is a collection of
sacred songs, testimonies and observations that have stood the test of
time. Countless millions of believers in all ages have benefited from
the Psalms. Each module will include a sermon based on a Psalm or
- THE PARABLES: The Saviour said:
" I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world." (Matthew 13:35)
Jesus used parables to unlock age-old mysteries. Often they mystified and confused
some of his hearers; but to others they were the key that opened the
storehouse of spiritual understanding. Each module will contain a key
sermon based on a parable. Remember, parables were given to unveil
spiritual concepts and truths hidden since the foundation of the world.
- FAMOUS BELIEVERS: In this
section we will take a brief look at Yahweh's followers, the Bible
greats: men and women whose lives have been the subject of study by
millions. Why did Yahweh bless them? What was their secret? Can we
ever hope to do as well as they did? These and many other questions
will be answered.
- THE UNCLASSIFIED SUBJECT: It would
be limiting to say the least to restrict ourselves to the above
mentioned eleven subjects no matter how worthy each obviously is: so
we have left one sermon unclassified, to allow ourselves the
opportunity to include any subject outside the listed range. Examples
are: the family, missionary work, entertainment, recreation, study,
friendship etc. These and many other unclassified subjects will be
placed in this category.
