Great Sermon! This sermon reminds me of the message in Corinthians. ..no records of wrong. .if you love..if you love the grace..accept it and cheer it on for others as well as for you..as well as for me..Thank you so very much.
How about every time they announce the death toll, the also let you how many rockets the Palestinians launched? Maybe they could even note that Hamas has turned gown and/or violated 3 cease fires to which Israel agreed . Not as many Israelie casualties but not from lack of trying by Hamas,
By the way, let me also mention that the way you speak to the sisters here, whether you agree with some comments or not, is nothing short of disgusting. What I consistently see from you is overflowing anger, and even hated...surely not holiness. Please think out your response because it's difficult to follow you at times.
Oh Strat, what are you talking about now? I'm in agreement on many things? Say what? Like what? Stop pulling fables out of thin air in your vain attempts to crucify people. Also, unlike your incessantly miserable, forever negative self, I gave somebody a very reasonable benefit of the doubt. In another thread, you referred to yourself as "a holy man". Your online personna and combative nature paints a much different story. When have you ever encouraged or tried to uplift someone? When have you ever tried to have a conversation void of smart, condesending remarks? When have you ever shown anyone here that you are the holy man you claim to be by shining the light of Christ in your speech? You need need to take a deep look within and examine who you appear to be to everyone but yourself. I would venture a guess that the comments made against you in another thread reflect pretty much everyones thoughts. Can so many really be so wrong? Holy man? Interesting.
THE RIGHT COVENANT THEOLOGY Most of the preachers preach another jesus which is evident in their understanding of covenants. Their god in the O.T. is an ogre. They don't preach the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible described in Matthew 9:13.
Our pastor rightly describes the merciful God who saves thus, "Those who are saved, like Noah, and Abraham, and Moses, and Joshua, and David, and Isaiah, and so on, who are O.T. people, but they have put their trust in the COVENANT OF GRACE. The Lord Jesus Christ has fulfilled the Law perfectly and forever in their place, as their Substitute. Those who are not saved, like Doeg the Edomite, have put their trust in something that they have done that supposedly was pleasing to God. They will be held accountable for all the times that they have not obeyed the Law perfectly, because they are adherers to the ministry of death, which is the COVENANT OF THE LAW." Thank you Lord for this wisdom of God that leads His children to salvation.
Anyway, what this executive order does is open up every Christian based business to no win legal issues. Mr OBama has paved the way for every one of these to be assaulted by the litigious sodomites who will take down as many as they can for their own financial gain. Lawsuits will abound as the result of a signature. Sodomites will attack for financial gain under the guise of furthering the plight of their people who just want to be accepted. I'd say they have been accepted already as they have risen to a force to be reckoned with.
Great Sermon! Thank you for the truth. My family are Christians but are not doing things right. I feel a sense of urgency to get it right now before it is to late. I see things clear now.
Compelling Thank you for this sermon! It really made me evaluate my life and how for off track I have gotten with myself and my family. I feel the Holy Spirit tugging at me to get things right.
I have listened to a few of your other sermons and know that I need to get rid of the broadcast tv in my house. Pray for me as I tell my family today because I don't know how they will respond. Thank you for speaking the truth about the TV. I haven't heard anyone else say it and it needs to be heard.

Summary, Part 7 (final) 5. A SPIRIT HAS PERSONALITY [50:21]. Personality involves self-awareness, which is expressed by personal pronouns. By this, we distinguish ourselves from others. In angels and demons: LUKE 1:19; MARK 4:9; MATTHEW 8:29, 31. In humans: taught in almost every page of the Bible, but it is starkly illustrated in disembodied humans (LUKE 9:30; ACTS 16:23-31; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:8; PHILIPPIANS 1:23; REVELATION 6:9-10). Scripture clearly teaches that God is a personal being, not an impersonal force (many texts, but consider ISAIAH 45:22). APPLICATIONS TO BE CONSIDERED NEXT LORDâ€™S DAY.
Summary, Part 6 To be unmoved is to be un-Christian, and it leads to the church looking to the world for wisdom on emotion. 4. A SPIRIT HAS MORALITY [45:18]. Spirits are free moral agents. This consists of two parts: a. MORAL CAPACITY involves the personal consciousness of right and wrong, and with it the capability to discern right and wrong and to commend what is right and to condemn what is wrong. Scripture often calls this capacity â€˜conscienceâ€™ (ACTS 24:16; ROMANS 2:14, 15; etc.). In humans: PROVERBS 20:27. In angels and demons: GENESIS 3:5; 2 PETER 2:4; REVELATION 12:10. b. MORAL CHARACTER. Moral character also is associated with spirits. Understand that spirits are never morally neutral: they are either good or evil, righteous or wicked. In angels and demons: 2 PETER 2:4; JOHN 8:44; 1 SAMUEL 16:14, 16, 23; MATTHEW 3:43. In humans: 2 CORINTHIANS 7:1. In God: GENESIS 3:5; JOB 40:8; DEUTERONOMY 32:4.
Summary, Part 5 All spirits feel in a manner consistent with their nature. Godâ€™s capacity for emotion (His emotivity) has been denied by some, but more often neglected by others. Those who deny Godâ€™s emotivity say that the capacity to feel is incompatible with Godâ€™s purity, immutability, and sovereignty. But that reduces many of the texts weâ€™ve cited to figurative language. Scripture states that all spirits possess the capacity of emotion. Anthropomorphic language for God in the Bible is figurative, meant to capture something important about Him. But emotional language for Him is literal, because affections are of the spirit. Menâ€™s denial or neglect of Godâ€™s capacity to feel does not honor God or His word. It does not grow from careful interpretation of the Bible, but often comes from self-justification and prejudice. There has been a Western, specifically northern European cultural bias imposed on Godâ€™s character. God is not a stoic, unemotional being unmoved by His creation. This grave error has led to prayerlessness and cold doctrinarianism. Moreover, because man is the image of God, this denial of Godâ€™s emotivity tends to undermine the dignity of human emotion, which in turn tends to undermine the cultivation of a godlike emotional life by Godâ€™s people.
