This is an audio sermon by Alfred Chompff titled: “The Abomination of Desolation” The scripture text that brother Alfred is preaching from is Matthew 24:14-29, and the audio is 53 minutes long.

We can and will call the sabbath a delight only when we understand that Christ is our Sabbath. We do not observe a literal, legal sabbath day, because Christ is our Sabbath, and we rest in Him. I know many who pretend to keep a literal sabbath day. Many try their best to delight in legal sabbath work. But I do not know a sabbatarian in the world who really delights in… Read More

As the tabernacle was concluded, Moses was inspired of God to give us a description of “the holy garments” that were made for Aaron, those garments Aaron was required to wear whenever he went into the tabernacle doing service before the LORD God as Israel’s high priest. They are called “clothes of service.” These “clothes of service” were very significant and highly symbolical. They are listed three times by Moses (Exodus 28,… Read More

“Behold, a ladder set up on the Earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.”(Genesis 28:12) The ladder Jacob saw in his dream was our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:51). When the Lord God revealed His Son to Jacob, He revealed Him as a ladder. What an instructive and helpful representation that is of our Saviour. The Lord… Read More

“Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.” (Proverbs 28:5) Other people are vexed and confused by the Word of God, the ways of God, and the works of God; but God’s saints understand all things. This is not a matter of supposition, but the plainest possible declaration of inspiration. — “They that seek the LORD understand all things.” The wise man tells us that “Evil… Read More

“And I will remember My covenant.”(Genesis 9:15) How wondrously our God displays Himself in grace. From among a race of rebels who deserve His wrath, He has chosen to save a people for the praise of the glory of His grace! He chose to save His own, loved by Him with an everlasting love in Christ. And from the very beginning, He has shown us the blessed good news of the gospel… Read More

“Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.” (Numbers 13:16) When Moses changed the name of Oshea, the son of Nun, to Jehoshua, he was making a declaration. The name Jehoshua means, “Jehovah is salvation!” And that is the essence of all that is taught in the Book of God. I cannot find any other doctrine taught in Holy Scripture. When Moses stood before the unbelieving children of Israel at the Red… Read More

“Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works.” (Ecclesiastes 9:7) These words are not addressed to everyone. They are specifically addressed to the righteous and the wise. They are addressed to those whose works are in God’s hand, to those who, being the objects of God’s mercy, love and grace, have been made righteous and wise in Christ… Read More

“The pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords.”(Exodus 35:18) The tabernacle was secured in its place by brass pins (nails) and linen cords. The nails were driven into the ground and the cords were stretched over the outer covering of badgers’ skins, tying everything securely in place, much like we use nails and cords to secure a tent to the ground today. We are specifically told… Read More

“And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.” (Genesis 22:14) The name by which God revealed himself to Abraham at Mt. Moriah, Jehovah-jireh, might be translated by three expressions: “the LORD will see”, “the Lord will provide” and “the Lord will be seen”. However the name is translated, it expresses the idea of God… Read More

“The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.”(Proverbs 16:4) Nothing is more delightful and nothing more comforting to God’s saints in this world than the realization that all things are under the absolute control of our great and glorious God. And nothing inspires us to bear our trials and troubles, sicknesses, sorrows and bereavements here with patience like the fact that all things… Read More

The law of the Old Testament sabbath was clearly stated. “But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well… Read More
