Major Message of the Minor Prophets

Major Message of the Minor Prophets
Sermon Series by Dr. Chris Moore
 
In this sermon series, we spend 12 weeks looking at each of the minor prophets. Since all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable, we should hear from all of God’s Word. These books are called “minor” because they are shorter, not because they are less important. Unfortunately, this section of the Bible is often neglected, but we need to hear the major message of the minor prophets.

    Haggai encourages God’s people to rebuild the temple and prioritize the Lord’s ministry.  We are reminded that we are all called to be involved in ministry, and we discover some timeless principles for getting involved in the Lord’s work.

    Zephaniah
    In this sermon we learn that God is both severe and kind.  Even though we see both of these attributes of God throughout the Bible, we rarely think about how they relate.  We are encouraged to consider both so that we experience the kindness of God and avoid His severity.

    Zechariah
    In this unique sermon, we look at several verses from Zechariah where he speaks about a coming Messiah King.  We also look at several texts from the New Testament and we see how the passages from Zechariah are fulfilled by Jesus.  We are encouraged as we see the consistency of God’s Word and the significance of the last week of Jesus’ life before his death and resurrection.

    Habakkuk
    Habakkuk
    In this sermon we discover several key lessons about what to do when life is tough.  We learn we can (and should) go to God with honesty even though His responses might not be easy.  We also learn God’s people live by faith (2:4).  We discover what this looks like and why this significant verse in Habakkuk is quoted three times in the New Testament.

    Nahum
    We learn from this sermon how to think about evil and how to live in the world that is marked by evil.  We talk about how Christianity provides the most satisfying explanation to this problem.  We discover God will one day put an end to evil, and we talk about how this will be bad news for many and good news for those who respond correctly.

    Micah
    Micah The gospel is the message of the Bible and it includes four important elements: God, man, Christ, and response.  We discover all four themes in the book of Micah, and we are encouraged to respond to the gospel with authentic faith.

    Jonah
    Jonah
    Of all the prophets, we are probably most familiar with Jonah.  We like this book because it is a fascinating story, but our familiarity can prevent us from hearing the message.  We learn God wants His people to make Him known.  We discover several reasons why we don’t and why we should.

    Obadiah
    Obadiah
    Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament, yet it still has a significant message for us. We know God is sovereign, but we learn from this book what to do when it doesn’t seem like God is in control. We are called to trust His Word, trust His ways, and trust His timing.

    Joel
    Joel
    As we look at Joel, we discover the prophets have a clear message their audiences would have understood.  The prophets are more like preachers and less like fortune tellers.  The book of Joel has a simple message with three key elements: judgment, repentance, and salvation.  We need to return to this same simple message today!

    Hosea
     
    We look at this challenging book, and discover God’s love is greater than our love.  We see how God’s love is unique, jealous, satisfying, affectionate, sacrificial, and relentless.  We talk about some of our love songs, and how God’s love is greater than even our greatest love songs!

    Amos
    We begin this series by looking at the book of Amos because this book provides us with a good example of how to read the prophets.  We focus on the audience and the author, and we learn why we need to hear from this prophet.  We discover the problem that led Amos to preach against God’s people.  While the tone of the book is challenging, we also see a promise that God will remain faithful to His people and His plan.
