Welcome to Light on the Rock

So glad to have you all come and visit our FREE website, where we have over 125 sermons and lots of short articles or blogs (see LOTR Blogs).   Brothers and sisters from 70 countries come to this site.  Welcome to all of you.  Many of you visit us from China, Russia, the Philippines, the UK, Italy, France, Canada, Australia and of course, the USA and dozens of other countries.  Don’t keep us a secret. Tell your friends.  We worship our dear Father (whom I often call Abba), God Most High and His Son – Yeshua the Messiah, more commonly known as Jesus Christ.  We keep the sabbath and live by faith in His grace, as He transforms our lives in the Messiah through the Holy Spirit.

Let’s look ahead at our great and high calling. We don’t want to look back.  Let’s come together and each do our part in the body of Christ. Feel free to contact me. 

--Your brother in our Savior,  Philip.

Whether you’re a man or woman, I promise you – you will gain some inspiring insights into man-woman by this sermon. We decided to start with Christ and how he treated women, rather than start with the traditional passages in Ephesians, etc. We are to have HIS mind and be more and more like Him – in all areas. Which social taboos and rules did He break and ignore to show the way women should be treated? How did He treat repentant women of ill repute? How did He use women to spread the gospel in their own unique way? What areas can we perhaps change and grow in – as we see our Example before us? There’s also a lot in here about being single – and what YHVH ways to single men and women. Enjoy!

This is the conclusion to Five women who were vital parts in the Messianic lineage of Yeshua, our king of Kings. The Davidic-Messianic line will indeed change the world. Glean some fascinating insights into each of these women and learn lessons that can change your life as well. (Note there are other sermons about and for women you can find in 2005 in the months of February, April and September 2005). Whether Gentile or Israelite, all of these women needed God’s grace – but all five women helped change the world.

The Messiah changed the world. Only five women, (5 the number of grace) are listed by name or referred to, in Matthew’s lineage of Yeshua, our Savior. Why were these five chosen? And why were most of them Gentile? Why couldn’t five “pristine” women who were more ‘righteous’ be chosen? What role did each of these women play in the Royal family tree? Caution: this and the next sermon are fairly graphic, but nothing is said that the Bible doesn’t say. Hear/read about these women who changed the world and the lessons they bring to all of us.

Who will perform the wedding of Christ and His Church? Where and when will Christ's wedding take place?

You'll hear some parallels and hints from the wedding of Boaz and Ruth. Is the Proverbs 31 woman really a parable about the Church? In John 14, Jesus says He goes to prepare a place for us. What does that mean? Philip's message will also take you on a quick tour of highlights of the book of Revelation, as it pertains to the wedding supper.
