Great Sermon! Dear pastor Rubino, Thank you for saying what needed to be said again. Now we can only pray that God will awaken us out of sleep. You are the second pastor I heard sigh during their sermon this week.
Thank you once again, God bless you!
A great blessing! Thank you very much, Rev. Foster, for these anniversary messages. They were such a blessing to me. May the Lord help us all to stand steadfast
"One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts" (Psalm 145:4).
Wonderful Knowledge! In this sermon Pastor explains how these four horses and their riders cover all the DIFFERENT PHASES OF HUMAN LIFE and they are under the absolute control of Christ. From seeing the situations in this world we may sense that His return is near, but we must not engage in speculating when it will come to pass. It is very uplifting to know all the power in heaven and on earth is given to the Lamb that was slain and He executes the will of Him who is sitting upon the throne. Thank you Pastor for imparting this knowledge to His sheep.
Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones on: A need for a true understanding of what makes a Christian; salvation is unmerited favour; man cannot be saved by works; the example of Paul; the controversy over verse 7; and the two differing views explained; faith is not the cause of salvation; it is only the instrument; the impossibility of man saving himself.
Powerful Sermon! Brother Greg does a strong job presenting the need for us to fight against sinning -- in all aspects. Once
you realize how much God has given us, how can we disappoint Him by returning to our previous, sinful nature. This has great motivation for us to remain pure in God's eyes.

Yet no matter what I eat, I still do not seem to be able to maintain my health. I am asking for praying, as I have been quite ill since Saturday. I am on the chemotherapy drug methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis ‚ÄĒ and I went to a harvest type fair last Friday and visited with a lot of chickens and rabbits in a large barn. That night my eyes were really watering and I have been sick with recurring eye, ear, and neck pain and a headache since then. Last night the left side of my head was burning and I was in agony. I have an appointment with my doctor today, please pray for me! "Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." ~ James 5:16 NASB
Real sorry to hear of your health issues. May The Lord be pleased to restore your health soon. Praying for ya.
Helps wrote: Sorry, I should have stated in my original post. The answer to your question is yes, it is Dr Peter Masters of Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle, London. This was one in a series lamenting the death of persuasive evangelistic preaching in the Reformed tradition. Dr Masters is convinced, rightly so in my opinion, to attribute the demise of such preaching to a wrong view of regeneration. For those who wish to follow the entire series of presentations, the link is Evangelistic Preaching - The Forgotten Imperative This is such an important topic I would encourage all to listen to the series. Enjoy!
I've bookmarked it for when I have a better download speed. I've no doubt it will be most excellent series, as I've listened to many of Peter Masters evangelistic sermons and found them most heartwarming and biblical. I would certainly recommend them for evangelistic use. ___________
Hey Observer, glad to see you're back home safely.

Great Christians such as the Reformed Church and the Puritans have used the Westminster Confession and the Catechism to teach and convert for centuries. Even the early Baptists new the Biblical expertise of the WCF because they copied it for their own 1689 version. Of course sadly the error they made is not understanding baptism and the Covenant of Jesus correctly. What a pity.
You would exegete the Bible through the lens of the WCF?!!! Are you blind man? The WCF should be examined by the light of the Bible, not the other way round. If you were converted, you would not even need to be told that! And then maybe you would come to realize how flawed the document is. Until then you have no hope!
