Staggeringly Powerful As sharp and shocking a sermon as any I've read by Spurgeon. Incredibly simple, totally fixed to the text in Jonah and perfect for preaching to sleepy saints and sinners. His arguments are amongst his strongest.
I'm not convinced though that Christians should be seeking to tell the gospel at every opportunity, come what may, so that we won't be guilty of the blood of others. In the New Testament, the emphasis seems to be a lot, dare I say it, more relaxed, or winsome. In the New Testament, there seems to be a lot more emphasis for Christians to shine their loving lives before others (Matthew 5:16), living godly lives (1 Peter 2:16) and, when opportunity comes, when we are asked about it, giving a reason for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15). I'm concerned that someone who takes to heart everything Spurgeon has said will be moved to be very foolish and put people off Christ. It's good to be zealous, and to preach zealously in a pulpit. But I don't think your everyday Christian attitude should be, 'I'd better tell so and so about the gospel and do so quick, or else I'll be guilty of their soul'. I think if we think like that we'll cause more harm than good. What do you think?
A Really Excellent Sermon This is the best message I've heard on the issue of the 'New Perspectives on Paul'. Joe Morecraft III clearly understands the issues involved and communicates them very simply. He is extremely passionate about the gospel and it's a joy to listen to him.
Very Captivating This is perhaps Keith's most famous message. Keith begins this message by quoting the entire Sermon on the Mount word for word, for 25 minutes, with understanding, clarity and passion.
After that, he spends about 35 minutes expounding Matthew 5:13 - "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, it's no longer good for anything, but to be cast out and trampled underfoot by people". To do this, he goes through the entire Sermon on the Mount, passage by passage, showing how it all relates to us being the salt of the earth, the world's protection. His main point is Christ's main point: if we were as godly as we should be, our nations would be streaming to God in their masses. Our example is the thing that matters most.
This is God Speaking ... I've listened to a good number of Keith Daniel sermons now. I think this is a real treasure. He speaks on an extremely neglected topic, that of waiting on God, being still in faith and waiting for God to come to your aid, as you sit in the secret place and meditate on His word and pray. It was a different delivery to Keith's usual method - that of expressing himself loudly. Though I enjoy his usual delivery of expressive power and passion, this was equally powerful and passionate, even though he just spoke conversationally the whole time during the 2 hour sermon.
He quotes a huge amount of Scripture and enforces the point that the Secret Place is where God does His work - when we wait in faith on God, in the school of God. Life throws a lot of things at us and they're all tests. God expects us to pass the tests and the way to pass is to be still and wait on Him.
Inspiring! This was an inspiring message on prayer. The beginning when he recited from Ephesians 6 was thoroughly gripping and is the best reading I've probably ever heard of the Scriptures publicly. His exposition of the aspect of prayer wasn't hugely focused on the text. Instead, he brought gripping illustrations and stories to teach on the power of prayer. It was a captivating and motivating sermon and well worth a listen. One of Keith Daniel's main strengths, amongst others, is that it is impossible to listen to a message by him without understanding exactly, exactly what he's saying. You never really need to hear the same message by him twice. That's a rare gift - extreme clarity.
This is a Fantastic Message This is a fantastic message to listen to if you are really serious to get into God's word. It's incredibly inspiring and an absolute joy to listen to.
Keith speaks about all sorts: reading Scripture and how to do that; meditating on Scripture; why we need to know Scripture. He even deals with the whole issue that is so lost today of memorising Scripture - not just an individual verse, but whole chapters, whole books, which is Keith's own method. One of his main points is that we shouldn't treat God's word as if it's another book. It's HOLY!
This has had a huge impact on my life and as a result I have a greater reverence for God's word. I've also memorised all of Psalm 91 and half of Psalm 34 as a result and will continue to do this! It's amazing.
Really hits the target - so encouraging This was such a strengthening sermon. There are some jewels in this message. Len is fantastically encouraging and I hope the Lord does your heart good through this.
It's Very Long, But It's Extremely Useful I listened to this lecture about 3 years ago and then re-listened to it the other day whilst I was cleaning the windows in the flat where my wife and I live. I was struck by how much I had taken in the first time I had listened. Before re-listening, I couldn't have told you where the things I remembered came from, but it was from this lecture. Things such as reading the Bible so much that all of your illustrations should come from it; things like going out and exercising instead of getting fat and lazy; things like being careful what you watch, etc. It is one of the best Paul Washer talks and I've heard him speak on many things now. Very, very useful indeed and very exciting to listen to.
The Most Important Sermon for This Century? Ray Comfort has outdone himself. He's stumbled upon an amazingly simple but neglected principle for leading people to the Saviour. And he's taken pains to really put it into practice in his own life and to explain with outstanding clarity what he wishes to share. Ignore what Ray says at your peril.
One of Leonard's Best It's no wonder this is one of Leonard's most popular sermons on here. It's a passionate, pleading reminder of the reality of Hell and how we should live as Christians in light of the billions of people heading to this awful place. No-one can preach like Leonard when he truly gets hold of a truth.
Such A Powerful Reminder About Faith Leonard had such a remarkable preaching gift. I've been listening to him for about 4 years and his influence on my life has been immeasurable. I thank God so much for him and this sermon really gets to the heart of a lot of his ability and his beliefs in God and God's power. He encourages us in faith an awful lot and doesn't pull his punches. If more humble men would preach like Leonard, we'd shake more people.
Great Sermon! This series on God's sovereignty was just what I needed again. I love listening to John. He is a superb Bible teacher. His is very easy to understand, extremely imaginative and passionate. I love also that his insights are often so unique. He tends to see things other preachers don't see. Here is a man who loves his Bible and his God. We can learn much from him.
One of the Most Important Messages on SermonAudio I have listened to Ken Ham's lecture here about 3 times now. It is excellent and perfectly spot on. Ken Ham has been gifted by God to see these things in such a crystal clear way and he has so much ability to be very engaging and simple enough to follow. Regarding the doctrine of the authority of God's word and in light of how bible teachers interpret Genesis 1, this is certainly one of the most important messages on SermonAudio!
Great Teaching Voddie is a really good Bible teacher. At the moment, I prefer listening to him more than anyone else. He always gets straight to the point and he is so passionate. He is crystal clear in his presentations too. I think he is a Bible teacher that many preachers can learn from. You won't get bored listening to Voddie! He makes the Word of God fresh!
Great Message and very Accessible Michael Phillips is a talented speaker. This message proves it. He preaches to children and to adults on this very solemn topic and it packs a punch! His explanation of the passage is very good and the relevance for children and their parents is made obvious and clear. Not many men would be bold enough to speak this frankly to children whilst their parents are present. And not many men would speak to the parents about their parenting skills with the children present. Excellent, courageous and I'm sure God has used it wonderfully behind the scenes.
Excellent and Stimulating Lecture This was a really good lecture. It was full of relevant information and delivered in a passionate manner. Michael Phillips is a very gifted Church historian and presents Church history in a wonderfully exciting way. Praise God for him! This one of Wycliffe is especially helpful because there is so little known about this mighty man of God. Yet it sounds as though this man was as vital to the Reformation as Luther and Calvin.
