Great Sermon! I found you on the radio and knew. I know this message to be true. I have received the Holy Spirit through the true word of God. It is so amazing to me that when I speak the truth no one wants to hear me. This message reached my heart with the testimony of the one and only God of the universe. I see this and so did Daniel and the Prophets. I will continue to study and pray that this message will reach the lost souls. Praise The Lord Jesus Christ the Almighty.
I could have sworn they were prescribing heroin here in the states to help ween addicts off of the stuff. Anyways, be warned if you click on the link, you will be exposed to a topless woman in another news link below it.
Summary, Part 4 (final) But the focus of our attention today is our Saviorâ€™s thankfulness to God: not simply for the elements that picture His sacrifice, but for the privilege of being that sacrifice. What was the joy set before Himâ€”the salvation of Godâ€™s electâ€”evoked heartfelt thankfulness in our Lord. Imagine the scene: His arrest, His trial, His being mocked, His scourging, and Godâ€™s wrath being poured upon Him. He foresaw all things as He distributed the bread and passed the cupâ€”the very emblems of His suffering and shame. Yet they are also the foretokens of His once-for-all sacrifice for sinners, accepted by His Father, to expunge their record and to render them righteous. Jesus saw all these things in the bread and the cup. Each time we approach the table, let us grow in gratitude for all of this.
Summary, Part 3 THIRD, we should be especially thankful that Jesus prevails in His prayers for usâ€”and that God answered Himâ€”when the accomplishment of our salvation was at stake. Despite all the forces gathering against Christ at His Passion, He still prayed for us, and the Father answered. We remain Christians because He continues to pray for us. III. JESUS WAS THANKFUL TO GOD FOR APPOINTING HIM THE SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS, AND WE SHOULD BE, TOO [38:04]. At the Last Supper, letâ€™s underscore here that Jesus did not transubstantiate the bread and the wine, nor does it ever happen at the Lordâ€™s Table. The bread and wine remain what they are: a sacred meal that commemorates the New Covenant and His welcoming of the New Covenant family, and reminders of the price He paid to win our ransom and the forgiveness of our sins.
Summary, Part 2 3) We especially have no room to complain that certain sinners are not saved if we are not actively praying for them and faithfully witnessing to them. â€śHow shall they hear without a preacher?â€ť THIRD, we should also thank God for His sovereign saving grace toward our brothers and sisters in Christ, not just privately, but also publicly. The disciples heard and saw Christ thank the Father for their saving grace. He taught by word and by example. Paul did the same for the churches. Are you thankful for Godâ€™s sovereign grace toward you and your brethren? Our Lord is thankful for us. Imagine that! II. JESUS WAS THANKFUL FOR GODâ€™S HEARING AND ANSWERING OF HIS PRAYERS, AND WE SHOULD BE, TOO [29:08]. In Jn 11:37-41, we see Jesus raise Lazarus from the dead. Note His gratitude to the Father for answering His prayers. What lessons can we take from this? FIRST, we should be thankful that Jesus continues to pray for His people. He still does it in Heaven. SECOND, we should be thankful that God always hears and answers Jesusâ€™ prayers. We prevail because Jesus prays.
Summary, Part 1 Ingratitude is a characteristic of unbelievers, and will even characterize professing Christians in the latter days. Gratitude to God is both a grace and a duty. I. JESUS WAS THANKFUL FOR GODâ€™S SOVEREIGN, DISTINGUISHING GRACE IN SALVATION, AND WE SHOULD BE, TOO [starting at 3:55 of the audio]. In Mt 11:25-27, we see that the Gospel was hidden from some and revealed to others, but that Jesus was not shy in expressing publicly His thankfulness to God for His sovereign saving grace. We cannot come to Christ but by grace from on high. Implied in Jesusâ€™ thanksgiving is His unity with the Father in the matter of sovereign grace in salvation. Christ did not note this with passive resignation, but proclaimed it proudly as pleasing to His Father. What lessons can we take from this? FIRST, we should be thankful to God for His sovereign saving grace; none would otherwise come to be saved. He had to will to reveal Christ to us. SECOND, we should not quarrel with God as to why He saves some and doesnâ€™t save others: 1) Salvation is Godâ€™s business. We are saved by His will, not ours. 2) No one deserves to be saved, least of all us. Grace and mercy are emptied of meaning otherwise.
Jamie considering we were never a Christian nation, one can't use that for pushing for a better country. if you wanted a better country go spread the gospel and that gospel isn't according to the Republican Party. Go read the URL links in the second paragraph of my post before yours.

Hey if you don't like our laws or constitution, do us all a favor and find a different country in which to live. There are no threocracies set up on this earth and the powers that be are ordained of God. No one forcing you stay here and live in misery, if you think it is unholy to be under the constitution then find a place where you don't have that restraint. No one is making you stay. It is abuses of the Constitution that are leading to government oppression. We have a system called the ballot box to deal with that issue that too many people ignore. Just remember, without that awful constitution you wouldn't be posting here, just ask the people in China or Cuba. There won't be a perfect government until Isaiah 9:7 is fulfilled. Deal with it.
