Ere the Lamp of God Went Out in the Temple

Text: 1 Samuel 3:1-4


A. Spiritually times were hard in the land of Israel.
1. The sins of the sons of Eli. (1 Sam. 2:22-24)
2. The Word of the Lord was precious (rare) in those days.
3. A careless and complacent attitude prevailed.

B. The lamp of God was to burn always. (Exodus 27:20-21) And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. 21In the tabernacle of the congregation without the veil, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.

C. But the lamp went out. There was no light!

D. This is a message for our time.

I. The Church is to be a Lighthouse in a Dark and Sinful World.

(Matthew 5:14-15) Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

A. Not our business to entertain folks.

B. Not our business to campaign for political parties or candidates.

C. Not our business to march in protests.

D. Our business is to bear witness of the Light.

E. John 1:6-9 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

II. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is that Light! (2 Corinthians 4:3-5) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. We don't hear the term "lost" mentioned much in sermons these days. Jesus told about the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son in Luke 15.

A. Men are lost in sin! Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

III. What will happen if our Light goes out?

A. Men will not hear the gospel message.

B. Sinners will perish. (John 3:18-19 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

C. Their blood will be on our hands. (Ezekiel 33:8) When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

IV. Sinner, come to Christ right now and be saved! The Saviour is waiting. The Lord wants to save you.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

A. The universal invitation.

B. The Lord is knocking Rev. 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

C. Come now! (Isaiah 1:18) Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
