Great Sermon! I recently heard a profound statement concerning love of an enemy. In the movie "End of the Spear," a missionary father, on his way to an Equadorian jungle people known to be dangerous, answered his young son's question. The boy wanted to know if his father would defend himself and shoot them, if necessary. The father answered, we can't shoot them; they are not ready for heaven, we are. Thanks for the sermon, Pastor Reed.
Great Sermon! Pastor Boling: Thank you for the interesting and edifying interview today, June 4, 2013,with Dr.Gordon Wenham on singing the Psalms. So many points made agree with my view of the Psalms. For instance, that all Psalms are Messianic. Test the following with a KJV Bible from the Dollar Store, (no footnotes, spaces, etc.) and one finds that Psalm 40:7 "Lo I come in the volume of the book, it is written of me..." is in the very center of the Old & New Testaments! The Psalms are full of hope, and are also timeless in a contemporary sense concerning the behaviour of men and events. I have begun composing music for the Psalms (I play by ear and do not know reading or writing music) and sharing them at my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/repentbelieve1 for the purpose of helping scripture memorization. "Thine word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee." (Ps 119:11). Please continue with all good programs and work to spread the truth of the gospel. Your sister in Christ Jesus, Darlene Slavujac Thau
Remarkable Sermon! Pastor Reed: It is remarkable that at this very time that I am listening to your sermon, that I am engaged in an illustration of the 10 lepers from Luke 17:11-19 and tying the New Testament occurrence with Old Testament Psalm 107:15-22. Your teaching provided more depth in additional scriptures on thanksgiving.
Thanks be to our Lord's timing and also thanks to you.
God's power vs nations' power! Here's my 2 cents: Isaiah 40:15 reads,
Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
Thanks for your sermons, Pastor Mike.
