Great Sermon! I know I recommended this sermon a year ago but just listened again and it's getting better and more relevant - if you want to be filled by Gods Holy Spirit think on these things.....
Could I chslkenge you to pray Find a Muslim and share your faith The Muslims that i know have been very happy to discuss Jesus and I would suggest that there may be quite a few wrestling with Islam after seeing what a mess the Islamists are making of the world ???
KJV Matthew 5
44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. 3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. 5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
Great Sermon! Very helpful instruction. Many preachers suggest that we should have a prosperous easy life as a Christian but pastor chalen here speaks the bible truth regarding Christian suffering and maintaining a good conscience.
This is the single most awesome story I have seen for a long time. In the news papers we have story after story of Islamic atrocities and there in the centre a story quite astounding - the love and forgiveness of a people group who read the true word of God and follow the God of the bible. One group corrupted and breathing hatred and the other doing something that the world just cannot understand.
Just so incredibly proud of these poor suffering brethren.
1 cor 13 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
This is an incredibly tricky area. Most drs I know would consider euthanasia abhorrent but have a thought for those in positions to make these decisions. Would you find it easy to treat a very sick person when you think about these issues ?
