A Throne in the Secret Place

A sermon outline of Rev. James R. Reynolds, Sr.

Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.



The Pavilion

In Time of Trouble

He Shall Hide Me

Deut. 33:27; Psalm 34:7; Psalm 34:17; Psalm 46:1 Prov. 18:10

In His Pavilion *****************************

(5) Pavilion.—A booth or hut; tent; tabernacle

Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

J. WILBUR CHAPMAN-- It is said that some years ago the king of Abyssinia took a British subject, by the name of Campbell, prisoner. They carried him to the fortress of Magdala, and in the heights of the mountains put him in a dungeon, without cause assigned. It took six months for Great Britain to find it out, and then they demanded his instantaneous release. King Theodore refused, and in less than ten days ten thousand British soldiers were on shipboard and sailing down the coast. They disembarked, and marched seven hundred miles beneath the burning sun up the mountains to the very dungeon where the prisoner was held, and there they gave battle. The gates were torn down, and presently the prisoner was lifted upon their shoulders, and carried down the mountains, and placed upon the white-winged ship, which sped him in safety to his home. And it cost the English government twenty-five millions of dollars to release that man.

God has provided more!

  • David Brainerd going to the Indians.

  • A lieutenant in the US army has behind him the force and authority of the entire army.

Psalm 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

The Tabernacle

Not just "IN THE TENT" but special entrance!!

A Place of Favor

…in the secret of his tabernacle… - In the most retired and private part of His dwelling.

In the secret of his tabernacle - In the most retired and private part of His dwelling. He would not merely admit him to His premises; not only to the vestibule of His house; not only to the open court, or to the parts of His house frequented by the rest of His family; but he would admit him to the private apartments - the place to which He Himself withdrew to be alone, and where no stranger, and not even one of the family, would venture to intrude.


A Place of Fellowship

Treated as one of the family. We WERE beggars, now SIT AMONGST PRINCES.

Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

A Place of Feasting
