Sermon note (4th svc)
by Reverend Marcus Lamb
The Scarlet Cord
From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks
unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home. So it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him. And if you tell this business of ours, then we will be free from your oath which you made us swear.”
Then she said, “According to your words, so be it.” And she sent them away, and they departed. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window.

The Race of Faith
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
We look to Jesus as our Source.
Reverend Marcus Lamb’s –
His grandfather was abusive to his grandmum. His grandfather din serve the Lord until late in life. He had a carriage pulled by horses. He sent a minister to a home where he preached. After his grandfather sent the minister to the place, that night he gave his heart to Christ in the salvation call. At 51, he had heart attack and died
He grabbed the scarlet cord before he left.
Our loved ones already died can do for us more than on earth.
He had a sister named Deborah whom he did not get to see. She died one week after she was born.
Both his parents are with the Lord. He dreamt that they are in heaven.
Put the scarlet cord in your phone and be reminded of Jesus
