Thank you for telling the truth. I so admired this man's videos when he began to make them, but i guess the emergence of more "popular forms" of Christianity is crushing every truth God gave us in their beautiful simplicity to proclaim. You are a bold man to say what is real, instead of the polar opposite of what's "trendy". God just smiled when you posted this, even if i'm only seeing it a year later. Bless you
Thanks for the update, Andy. As I was reading your post, my mind went to Romans 11:33: "O, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!" May we never tire of knowing more about Him, and may we never lose the awe of the Gospel!
Stanza 3 of "And Can It Be?" Check the altered text found in newer hymnals. "Humbled Himself in matchless love," instead of "Emptied Himself of all but love." He did not lose love when He came to Earth.
Mike, out of all the pastors on sermon. Audio you have the most view...and your church is not the prettiest or biggest or have the most people. And you attract the most people listening in...that is God making the least the best above all..I am amazed!
1st Samuel does count Eli's sons who were Priests as sons of Belial, but you left out the part about their greedy and selfish dealing with the tithes of the congregation. That was the very first thing mentioned as shamed in God's eyes after Being called sons of Belial. And there is much detail about how they took a portion of the church's offerings for themselves off the front and back end, before God. It was eye opening really, as I see homeless starving members of the congregation and churches half the size of a college campus with Pastor's who fatten themselves as their members 'transgress'. 1 Sam 2:13-17 Is a scripture I see more avoided in the church than anything. Surely it can't be used to justify their tithing tactics so it can only refute it. I said that to say that it's disheartening to read an article from the church that approaches a serious social issue (Mike Brown case, Ferguson) with juvenile sarcasm to prove their point when 1% of churches operate in transparency and honesty. If there are any glass houses in the world today they aren't churches. Furthermore, it was a tasteless slight, and fortunately upon death ears seeing as how im the only comment here. I chanced upon your articles in my own bibical research, so this is pretty ironic!
Ear is for hearing. Something pricking your attention? Wheat like the Word of God? Or the wheat, believers, in contrast to the tares. Your fingertips are increased sensitivity â€” cleaning out the wax stopping up your hearing.
I've read of Christians at the end of their lives saying God I came to India or China or Africa & only two or three people got saved (touched by Your Holy Spirit). They would find out in heaven that after they had poured out their lives for Jesus, these few God used to bring awakening or revival to those nations. So don't look at the number that are touched..keep looking at our God walking with Him. In our Jesus
Thank you for sharing, this week or maybe next i myself have to face difficult situations, I remember something like that, when a Christian is persecuted for faithful preaching, this is a glory, christianity grows and smell better when persecuted, for it relies on the Saviour for salvation, the Lord is a Strong tower the righteous runs into and is safe. We glory in tribulation for tribulation worketh patience and patience experience and experience hope, and hope (the love of God sheed in our hearts by the Holy Ghost), endure persecution, do the work of an evangelist, the Lord goes before you, he will not forsake or fail you, do not be afraid, neither be dismayed. May our Lord through this pruning make us more like our Jesus, who set his face as flint, to Jerusalem, to be kill outside the vineyard. The Lord is my light and my salvation of whom shall i fear, the Lord is the strength of my life of whom shall I be afraid, for those who are for us are more than those that are with them. The Lord Jesus his name is faithful and truth. May the Lord gives strength for we wrestle not against flesh. Praying for you. our times are in His hands, and remember nobody can pluck us from the Fathers hands. Love you
