Sermons by Pastor Brendan Fischer

Is It Real Or Is It Fake?

Exodus 9:27-35 & 10:16-20 — “And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked…” As the plagues took their toll on Egypt, there were two occasions where Pharaoh seems to have expressed repentance. Their were words…

Questions, Queries & Quandries

Exodus 7:14-12:30 — In this study, Pastor Brendan answers some questions about the Ten Plagues in order to deepen our understanding. Some of these questions include:  Why were there ten?  How long did the plagues last?  Is there any historical evidence for the plagues outside of the Bible?  

The Folly Of Idolatry

Exodus 7-12 — In this sermon, Pastor Brendan gives us an overview of the Ten Plagues. He talks about how we should interpret the plagues and about their significance in God’s dealings with Egypt, Pharaoh and the Children of Israel. Each plague was intentionally designed to overthrow one or more of the gods the Egyptians worshipped.…

Who Is Lord? Yahweh Or Pharaoh?

Exodus 7:1-13 — In this text we have the first act in the great drama of the Ten Plagues. Moses and Aaron encountered Pharaoh and performed a miracle. Aaron’s rod became a serpent, but then this miracle was replicated by Pharaoh’s magicians.  Why did God choose this particular sign to begin his confrontation with the…

The Problem Of Bible Illiteracy

Nehemiah 8 — There is a glaring deficit of Biblical knowledge in our world today. Most people know very little about what the Bible says and we are witnessing the consequences. This was much the same in Nehemiah’s day, although the big difference is that the people wanted to know what the Bible says and…

The Christian Mission

John 17:17-18 — “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.”  Why have Christians been left in the world? Upon conversion, why aren’t Christians taken straight to heaven? What are we here to do? In His famous prayer…

When Things Just Don’t Work Out

Exodus 5:22-6:5 — “…Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?”  Things had not turned out as Moses had expected. Pharaoh refused his request and made life much more difficult for the Children of Israel. Then Moses was criticised…

Mission Accomplished

Nehemiah 6:15-16 — The walls of Jerusalem were finished and it took Nehemiah and his team just 52 days! How was this possible, especially given the opposition that Nehemiah faced? That’s the question Pastor Brendan answers in this lesson and in doing so we learn about what it takes to experience success in the Christian life.

Helping Our Leaders

Nehemiah 6:1-14 — The rebuilding of the wall was just about complete. Nehemiah’s enemies had thus far failed in their efforts to stop the work. In their frustration they launched one last series of attacks, but this time they were different. They tried to deceive to Nehemiah, to slander him, and to draw him into…

Jesus Caring For His Mother

John 19:25-27 — As Jesus hung upon the cross He turned His attention to His mother. She was standing close-by witnessing His suffering and no doubt heartbroken. Out of love and concern for her wellbeing, Jesus spoke to her and then to John. In this Mother’s Day sermon we consider what Jesus said, why He said…
