Subject: Tried With Fire

Both the Christian and the Bible itself is tried with fire.

We'll read several Scriptures in a minute but I wanted to give an introduction somewhat.

And conclude my statements about the singing of the Psalms.

I referred to this last night.

There is an ancient songbook here err book of songs that could have well been someone's personal song book of the Psalms.

And I explained part of this last night but part I didn't

This is 850 years old.

On the back it says psalter.

And they used to sing the Psalms for hundreds of years in the early church.

In fact up here is two pages out of an ancient choir song book of the Psalms.

You see before the invention of the printing press it was literally impossible when the scribes had to do the work of printing letter by letter.

It was impossible to afford to have a song book for every member of the choir.

So they had one large book like this.

And it would be laid on a pulpit.

And the entire choir would sing out of that large book.

These 2 pages came out of that book.

It weighs 65 pounds.

There was no suit case large enough to bring it in.

So I lifted 2 pages out to show you what it looks like.

That's on animal skins done by a scribe about 600 years old.

And that went on for a long time the singing of the Psalms being the song book in the early church.

In fact if you had ever had a crisis in your life.

Maybe a loved one near the point of death or maybe a financial crisis.

You are unable to sleep up walking the floors.

You need a promise from the Bible, the Word of God.

Where do you usually turn to to find that promise?

It's the book of the Psalms, usually.

There is many wonderful promises in the book of Psalms.

And I wish we continued to sing the Psalms in the church.

The Psalms went on for hundreds of years.

The first man credited with putting hymn singing in any church was Benjamin Keach.

That is what the historians tell us.

He was a Baptist preacher.

And he put hymn singing in a Baptist church.

It is picked up by other Baptist churches.

And later on put into other groups of people like the Methodists, Presbyterians, and so on that adopted hymn singing over the singing of the Psalms.

But when I described to you the martyrs going to the stake, in many cases they walked to the stake singing the Psalms.

Praising God.

And even like Jon Hus that I described last night.

As the fires burned his feet and his legs he began to sing the 50th Psalm.

And died singing the Psalms. [stopped] In the strength of the Psalms the martyrs went to the stake, mounted the scaffold, endured the rack, men, women and children dargged to jail. As in the days it was the Psalms Paul & Silas I Peter 1:6-7 "(6)Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: (7)That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:" (I Peter 1:6-7).

Many times fiery trials First Peter If you are a Christian a lot of fiery trial a purpose in it When we read about these martyrs. bread winner the fires that they

"Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, [even] the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea." (Isaiah 24:15)

the trial of your faith v. 7

"I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see." (Revelation 3:18)

"Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction." (Isaiah 48:10)

another furnace

"When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." (Isaiah 43:2)

circumstances are unimportant

"(6)The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (7)Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." (Psalms 12:6-7)

Let us pray. Father, we thank Thee... left this earth on God tonight I pray humbled sacrifice of our thank Thee for the fiery trial most precious close to Thee I pray you speak to our hearts in Jesus name Amen. Notice the last Scripture we just read

religious bigotry...religious persecution... Why could He not stop it? the crucifixtion? legions angels have great power. He could have.

Where would we be in redemption?

there is a purpose in the crucifixion purpose in the things you go through.

burned with literal fire accident Maybe the doctors pronounce young in life Why? Why did this happen to me God has

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose. (Romans 8:28)

The policy of the state church of Rome.

Punished like the sinner

This policy has never been rescinded. Reputed this policy. burning Christians at the stake

You read concerning King 1478 to stamp out the Reformation St. Augustine

John 15 Luke 14:23

"And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel [them] to come in, that my house may be filled." (Luke 14:23)

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16)

burning men women and children at the stake God allows it to come to pass

6 The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. (Psalms 12)

before the furnace of affliction the furnace of earth the earth has been cursed The Bible show us what we are.
