Great Sermon! What a beautiful Saviour, so suitable. This part of Scripture has been my meditation for weeks now. Would it be wrong to think that mount Hermon, where Moses hit the Rock, is the same place where God put the Law (and His wrath) on, they stood from far, same as the women at the cross? He laid the iniquity of us all upon Him, and the water of the Spirit if flowing forth from God the Father and the Son. God is in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself.
thank you, really enjoyed the sermon.
Great Sermon! Thanks for your note Pastor Carlson: When Pastor Martin told me he was going to preach on this text, I was reminded of the first time I was aware of him preaching it. November 1985. The audience was Grace Community Church, Panorama City, CA.(where John MacArthur pastors) I had just left Trinity the month before to move back to Montana. I had a copy of that tape for years, it may still be up in the attic. I have heard one other recording of him preaching this, but this was an interesting introduction to this sermon.
Jesus is the Saviour While I agree with most of the things that were said, I must speak on the fact that not every African American or single mother voted for Barak Obama to his second term! I am African American & somewhat offended that you would call him or say that we look to him as our messiah! That really struck me odd that a person of your disposition as a Christian & supposedly my brother in Christ would say such a slanderous thing! I admire your bluntness in any matter but not to speak for all or on speculation!
Very Needed Word! In this message Pastor Martin covers the biblical passages which clearly demonstrate what we know by instinct but do not always apply: that we have the right (and responsibility) to assess the genuineness of repentance before conferring forgiveness. He shows that we do no good to the offender, nor to the fractured relationship, by neglecting this assessment. Though we may be tempted to "just forget it and move on," without genuine repentance the sinning brother is still covering his sin, and he who covers his sin will not prosper--nor can the relationship barriers be removed. It's self-love to neglect faithful dealing with a sinning brother for fear of the consequences--not love to him. Can this principle be abused? Absolutely. So, Pastor Martin exhorts us to remember the Golden Rule and the law of equal treatment: "with what measure you measure it shall be measured to you." We aren't to be hard or Pharisaical, insisting on the right number of tears. Not everyone expresses brokenness the same way. We should freely forgive where there is true contrition, however it is expressed. Still, we are not to be taken in by deceit. For all this we need the wisdom supplied by the Spirit of God, in our families and in our churches.
Great Sermon! I went to school with Drew and very much appreciate his approach to this subject (adapted from Rick Holland's teaching to Grace Community Church where he served with John MacArthur). While warning against dangers of dating, and wisdom of relationships years before readiness to marry, his focus isn't the precise steps or methods of courtship (which also isn't a foolproof formula or necessarily "biblical" as some propose it). He focuses on the principles of Scripture and doesn't make prescriptions from descriptions of how people got together in various ways in Scripture. This is from the Equip Conference Youth event on 10/18 that GCBC participated in at Cool Community Church.
This is true, even though we don't understand.no From my personal experience, I can look back and see that God had his hand in my life. The good and the bad. I don't understand it all, but I believe he loves me and I will continue to trust him. There is nothing nor no one else that we can have complete trust that has the power to deliver us.
Newton wrote of this... Newton's Olney Hymnal of 1779, Hymn 72 Book II:
"In vain, my fancy tries to paint the moment after death; the glories that surround the saint, when yielding up its breath.
One gentle sigh their fetters breaks, we scarce can say, 'They're gone!', before the willing spirit takes her mansion near the throne.
Faith strives, but all its efforts fail, to trace her in her flight; no eye can pierce within the veil which hides that world of light.
This much (and this is all) we know, they are completely blest; have done with sin and care and woe, and with their Saviour rest.
On harps of gold, they praise His Name, His Face they always view; then let us followers be of them, that we may praise Him, too.
Their faith and patience, love and zeal, should make their memory dear; and LORD, do Thou the prayers fulfil they offered for us here.
While they have gained, we losers are. We miss them day by day. But Thou canst every breach repair and wipe our tears away.
We pray, as in Elisha's case, when great Elijah went - may double portions of Thy grace, to us who stay, be sent."
What a glorious gospel! I've heard Pastor preach on this text before, but this is a fresh approach. While this is a classic example of the powerful preaching of Pastor Martin, it is not so much the herald, but the message being heralded that stands out.
