John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 1:13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Ephesians 1:4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, Ephesians 1:5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
Just so you know I'm Daves son so we have the same IP address so this doesn't cause issues.
We must contend the faith, and be ready with a truthful answer. Christ crucified should be first and foremost, love god with all our strength, do unto others. But when fundamental doctrine is attacked, the word of god is being attacked. It's just not the way I roll to leave disregard for god's word unchecked. But ever realizing the need for constant vigilance, checking one's own self to scripture daily. Not in the least bit trying to argue, just found it an appropriate response for a comment on this thread about the doctrines of grace we all know to be incorrect. Love to all and God bless.
Great Sermon! This is a very sobering message about the dangerous condition of our nation, about ready to fall. I've been saddened to see that so many think that because a particular Presiddntial candidate was elected, the apparent lesser of two evils, that the nation is suddenly on an upward trajectory. People, by and large, are out for their self-interests, and their hearts remain hardened to God. I see it all around me. The pastors' hearts are stone, and it's business as usual in the church. Real revival starts with brokenness and repentance. But most are more interested in their social media, sports fanaticism, and living for the world. It matters not whether one is Christian or not, it's the same condition. I feel like I'm living in Babylon. May God grant a hearing ear to at least a few in these last days of our nation. God bless you Dr Johnston.
As the whole incident shows, it's by god's will that Phillip was there to be used by the Holy Spirit to quicken the eunuch.and was removed when job done. He was already reading Isaiah being drawn by god.
I have always been amazed that if folks act as a group then they can avoid being arrested. They can loot and destroy private property and the media gives them sympathy because they pretend to have a cause. The police for the most part simply look on.
Hi Frank, you comment reminded me of the Ferguson, MO nonscense last year where the black community was rioting, looting, burning, beating, and killing. The Mayor ordered the police to stand down as she told them to, "Let them get it out of their system". Never heard anything so crazy and ridiculous.
Argh ...I'm a Calvinist , I follow Armanius, I'm a Baptist, I'm a Presbyterian...I'm this, I'm that, I follow this or that guy. Your church is dead...we're right, you're wrong, and if you're not with us, you're damned...we are the chosen, blessed by God. I can't even imagine what God thinks of the division of believers, speaking against each other, and living sperately behind invisible walls while operating autonomously as if we are all enemies. Even here, we act as enemies at times, myself included, getting all puffed up and red faced over utter nonscense, at times, as grudges, vindictiveness, and ugliness triumph over love, compassion, and patience. Again, I wonder what God thinks when believers get ugly, are divided, and squabble, while at the same time, claim to be His chosen, and judge every little thing while seemingly unable to see their own selves and shortcomings, clearly. I really hate labels, whether they be denominational, or the following of mere men.
No no no ....I used to see this stuff and think like these posts, but now every time I see garbage like this all I know is JESUS IS COMING BACK SOON REEEEEEAAAAAAAL SOON. Don't let it get you down, just know Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. LOOK UP LOOK UP He's coming Praise the Lord
God, they all need to hear about Jesus, who is mighty to save all that come unto God by him. God now commandeth all men everywhere to repent, so repent ye and believe the gospel said Jesus. This is all that God requires. He that believeth and is baptised shall
Wow John that sounds like something I would say!!!! Only thing when I say it.......KAPOW BUT Mathew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Praise the Lord
