A Message To Remember In Troubling Times! From the Sermon Details: Mr. Lyons addresses why the wicked prosper and the righteous suffer. The answer cannot be found until one takes an eternal lens and understands just what riches we need in order to truly prosper.
A Very, Very Good Message! "And GOD is not placated if we make a little room for Him on the shelf of our lives," is a point stated by Dr. Phillips in this sermon. Our GOD is the great, awesome, only true GOD.
Self-Made Coverings for Sin! Thanks, Brother Nate, for this message about the excuses/the cover-ups that people use so they can keep on doing unrighteous things and feel okay doing them. Brother Nate talks about excuses/cover-ups like: we're not under law, God loves everybody, we're not to judge, there's hypocrites around.
Revealing! It's so sad to think that people, some craving signs and wonders, others lusting after spiritual powers, and still others believing it's a God-thing, have willingly embraced â€śChristianâ€ť sorcery and demonic doctrines. And there were folks like me who simply didn't understand the full Charismatic ideology. I just thought it meant you believed â€śthe giftsâ€ť were still around. And growing up in the black community were social justice was the gospel of the day, I never heard one preacher in my Baptist denomination speak on doctrinal issues. It was through the Scriptures and Christian radio that I learned that not everything calling itself Christian was truly Christian.
Very Good Message! This message is about more than just the daughters! There's so much that can be gleamed from the O.T. historical stories.
From the Sermon Details:
"The story of Zelophehad's daughters illustrates the Biblical truth that true freedom is only found within God's revealed will.
Because of the land redistribution at the time of the Jubilee, Zelophehad's daughters had freedom to marry whomever they chose, but only within the tribe of Manasseh (Numbers 36:6).
This principle of freedom within the law of God is also expressed in the New Testament where we have freedom to marry, but only in the Lord (1 Corinthians 7:39).
The Jubilee also underscores the concept that freedom finds its true expression within the law. The Jubilee prevents generational poverty, on the one hand, but it also prevents one generation from passing on massive wealth, on the other. The land always had to be restored to its original owners no matter how poor they had become.
The Jubilee is also a picture of the Gospel (Isaiah 61:1-4; Luke 4:16- 21). The Lord Jesus not only takes away the debt of sin, but he offers restoration and a new beginning."
Hmmm...Sorcery At Work? Doesn't it sound like the spirit of sorcery is operating in Fundamentalism? Men are promoting their diabolical agendas and causing folks to, unknowingly, practice schemes that are actually in opposition to GOD's way.
Great Follow-up! Perhaps it's because we believe sorcery is about pointed hats and magic wands that we don't think about people in our communities/our nation as being bewitched into seeing sin as entertaining, or under a spell were they believe iniquitous behavior is to be embraced and promoted.
Great Message Based On Acts 23:12-22 From the sermon: â€śSinners are like cockroaches, afraid when the light goes on. We happily move around in the dark; we are in the zone with the lights off. It's mankind's way, you see, to love darkness instead of light...I was a cockroach; I didn't like the light that my mom all of a sudden had coming from her.â€ť
Informing and Hard-Hitting! From the sermon: â€śAnd of course, when the mind is messed up the values will be messed up, the behavior will be messed up...â€ť Brother Samson explains what sorcery is and the operation of sorcery on positional key people down to...well, down to children!
A Great Message From One Going Through A Trial This is a sobering and encouraging message. I am praying for our brother in the Lord, his family, and the Grace Community Church. I listen to many of his sermons. His sermons present the living God Who has personality, a heart, compassion, Who is involved in His creation, knows what He is doing and is sovereign over everything.
