PSALM 66:18

                                      The Power of a Single Verse

Pastor Rick Jackson

I. THE PROBLEM – Iniquity Regarding

1. The Problem is Personal – Rm. 3:9-23

2. The Problem is Pervading

3. The Problem is Perverse

II. THE PLACE – Internally Residing

1. The Heart is Wicked [Jer. 17:9] The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

2. The Heart is Wanton [James 5:5] “seeking luxury” Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

3. The Heart is Willful [Isaiah 14:13, Jeremiah 18:12] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

III. THE PRODUCT – Intense Response

1. Divine Decision – “The Lord will”

2. Divine Determination “The Lord will NOT”

3. Divine Deafness – “The Lord will not hear me”

IV. THE PREVENTION – “IF”, note the context in verses 9-20
