Wonderful and Very Helpful I've gone through a very hard 18 months with financial struggles after losing P/T work. I am not an orphan nor am I a widow. Because I never married it has left me with numerous questions at times. At the core, I desire to be self-sufficient according to 1 Thess. 4:11-12 but being on disability has made it uniquely difficult & challenging as I've looked for ways to become self-sufficient. As I've encountered unexpected expenses, I have felt burdensome. This message helped put things into perspective even though I don't fall into the widow or orphan category. Thank you for this much needed message. God bless.
Very Helpful! I've gone through a very hard 18 months with financial struggles after losing P/T work. I am not an orphan nor am I a widow. Because I never married it has left me with numerous questions at times. At the core, I desire to be self-sufficient according to 1 Thess. 4:11-12 but being on disability has made it uniquely difficult & challenging as I've looked for ways to become self-sufficient. As I've encountered unexpected expenses, I have felt burdensome. This message helped put things into perspective even though I don't fall into the widow or orphan category.

WONDERFUL MESSAGE Oops. I posted a review of a similar message under the wrong message but the scripture reference was the same and by the same speaker, Dr. Minnick. I also accidentally typed the wrong scripture reference and said 2 Pet. 5:7 when it should have been 1 Pet. 5:7. That said, this message is one of the BEST I have ever heard on this scripture (and Phil 4:6-7). It has genuinely revolutionized (no joke) my prayer life as I have gone through various challenging difficulties, one right after another--like of like Job. I began to question and wonder until I heard this. The ending was worth it all. Make sure you have kleenex available.
I am so thankful that the Lord led me to this specific message. I have since shared it with others who have also been blessed. Thank you so much, Dr. Minnick for this life-changing message. Thank you! May the Lord bless you!
Great Sermon! How I wished I was saved and had such a love for God as Paul does, Just to know him personally is something I have wanted all my life, guess I was not selected,not elected. How I would like to give up but I just can't. not that God would change his mind, I wish he would, But after all it is God Kingdom with the ones he wants, Just wished he wanted me TEARS
Great Sermon!- so timely and needed Thank you so much for your courage n bringing this information out. So many probably do not know the danger until it is too late! As a grandmother of 2 young boys, 11 & 8, some of the questions I I am ask are those a grandmother should not have to be answering. When I say ask your dad or your mother, the 11 year old is too afraid he would get in trouble. Makes me wonder how many young people are out there with the same problem. It is also sad how many times at church he is bombarded with scantily dressed women and girls. It is already difficult to avoid pornography out in the world and on the Internet, and then have to encounter lustful thoughts at church. I have been praying conviction on these women to realize what a stumbling block this is to men and young boys.
Please, pastors and youth leaders address these problems from the pulpit.. I know it is uncomfortable and may be offensive to some, however you are called to preach and teach the whole Bible and the whole counsel of God. Are young people are bombarded with this stuff daily and everywhere they go as it has become the norm, and need answers from God's Word! Please!
A concerned Grandma...
Great Sermon! This started out great but lasts only 6 minutes and cuts off during the Scripture reading. Something went wrong. Whoever uploaded this goofed somewhere or the technology did. :(( No doubt it was a good sermon. I hope it can be reloaded in its entirety.
SUPERB Sermon! This has to be one of the most encouraging sermons ever! Everyone at some time in their life will encounter this. This was very timely for me after being verbally attacked by a family member and some close to me, I began to wonder if I had a sign on my forehead that said "kick me." Thank you, Pastor Steve! You are a fabulous expositor and make Scripture relevant while at the same time uplifting the name of Christ, always pointing us to the One who knows our plight, Who alone is worthy and controls everything. Thank you. Thank you. May God bless you richly.
Great Sermon! Thank you!! Finally, a godly minister that dares to speak the truth about C.S. Lewis!! It has always amazed and sadened me that ministers will quote and DEFEND this false teacher. It appears there is little spiritual discernment in our churches in these last days. Lewis should NEVER be quoted from the pulpit in a positive way. God bless you for speaking the truth!!
Great Sermon! Since I am only able to attend one hour of these sessions each night, I am so thankful that each session is on sermon audio. God bless you, Pastor Kevin for your faithful preaching of the Word.

My first comments on the 9-11 conspiracy crowd was like, "Wake up man, Bush is a professed Christian and Cheney is even more conservative. These guys could never have even remotely been aware of these events." Wow, what an absolute blind fool I was about the powers behind the Zionist and Neoconservative movements. It was just 10 years ago that I thought my knowledge of early American history, international law and world religions was pretty solid...but unfortunately, the recent advancements in the internet have definitely changed all those common book titles on the subject.
These guys are like the Popes during the dark & middle ages. Yes, we are all in serious trouble.
I totally agree. They love death and they are true Satanists. We are most definitely in a whole lot of trouble. I hear they are repeatedly announcing they will end the Internet. This is a window of opportunity to learn the truth, and need to grab the chance while it's there before the black curtain comes down.
Sermon Audio is not too eager for the truth to get out either I've noticed. Hopefully they are just naive, and not part of the cabal themselves.

Go, Walt! Great post! I knew you could do it. Walt is waking up.
"And I said, 'Oh, but it's the perfect time and the perfect place since it is our Sabbath and it is the time"
If it is "her" Sabbath - then she should not have been riding on a bus, since this is encouraging people to work on the Sabbath.
Exodus 20:10 "But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates"
Please remember to pray for Kirk and Ray as they debate two atheists in New York for ABC television this Saturday.

This notice is to let you know the network recently changed the streaming time from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 pm EST.
Great Sermon! Some sermons are fast food. This is a full course meal! God's glory shines through the truth shared in this message as well as a clear call to be an authentic believer. May the LORD be uplifted and praised through this ministry.
The term "sleep" or the concept of sleep does not refer to the soul. There is no such thing as souls sleeping.When Stephen was dying he said, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." And he had the anticipation of entering into the conscious presence of Jesus Christ.No where does the Scripture ever teach that at any time forever the spirit of a person is ever unconscious. That's what makes hell so terrible. It is consciousness in the absence of God forever. That's what makes heaven so wonderful, it is consciousness of the presence of God forever.Luke 16 as Jesus told the story of Lazarus the beggar and the rich man that when Lazarus died he was immediately and consciously in Abraham's bosom and comforted. And you remember when the rich man died he was immediately and consciously in torment and cried out for someone to give him water to touch his tormented tongue.2 Corinthians chapter 5 the Apostle Paul looks at death for a believer and in verse 8 he says, "To be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord." There's no purgatory, there's no intermediary condition, there's no state of unconsciousness or semi-consciousness, there's no spiritual coma. To be absent from the body to be present with the Lord...continued
