Great Sermon! I have to correct Bro Cooley about the southern phrase "bless your heart". Born and raised in Alabama I know what I speak of. Bless your heart can definitely be used condescendingly towards someone you disagree with. We are taught from a young age to be nice and polite even when we disagree. It is also used to show sympathy with someone going through a hard time. Most of the time, though, it is used condescendingly. Maybe just because someone like me leaves the house with mismatched shoes. "Well, bless her heart." That's my lesson in southern speak for the day. Keep on preaching truth Pastor!
Great Sermon! I am studying the Gospels in college and this sermon is well written. I have heard a couple points before but God's word never fails and is never redundant. This have me encouragement to be able to share with others. Thank you for sharing!
So many good things in this sermon Here's one of them:
The second point shows how the earthly promises God fulfilled for Israel (relief, freedom, adoption, redemption) were promised with an eye to eternal blessings. Now, in the New Covenant, we have the reality of Jesus, so these earthly blessings are taken away. We expect hardship and persecution. We look for eternal blessings.
An interesting point... I never thought of this before: preaching of the gospel does not equal preaching of the word of God. Gospel preaching is a subset in the word of God. So, those sermons which are biblically sound but do not preach the gospel message do not open up the kingdom of heaven.
Interesting Sermon Comparing Jesus And Angels Angels bring messages from God to Christians on earth; Jesus brings the reality of God's message of love to us. He not only adds to our knowledge about God; He changes our hearts.
The rest of the sermon is good, too.
Amen! I am so thankful to hear someone talking about how conservative talk radio is NOT loving. I have a very hard time listening to it and trying to have a meek, quiet, or loving spirit. The rest of the message was great, too. Very important and convicting!
Thank you Thank you for this video. I have been reading the Bible and praying to understand Gods word so that I can be ready for his return. I do believe I have learned from this and look forward to next week and the rest of this sermon.
Comforting sermon about death Some lines that caught my attenion:
"My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?" So that He would never forsake us.
Because of Christ's death, our old selves and our evil desires no longer control us. We are free!
Death is still an enemy, but even now Christ has transformed it to serve us by making it an entrance into heaven.
Sorry, but Protestants and Catholics are not both Christians. The Catholic system is salvation by works and the Bible believing Protestant churches (which are getting fewer and fewer in number today) hold to faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone. Catholicism like Islam is just another false religion. Both of which are guilty of the blood of the saints.
