THE question to ask all politicians!!!..... Mr. Swanson,
I think the ONLY question to ask ANY politician is this..... "Do you believe, that CHRIST died for ALL without exception, or ,did HE die for his elect? This question, if answered(and it most likely won't be) This will expose them, as weather they are, or not one of GOD's own!!! Because if they believe HE died for all to have an opportunity to be saved, but have to "decide" for HIM, of their own "freewill" then they are not true believers, and they are nothing more than "ravening wolves in sheep's clothing" And these politicians are nothing more than "man centered, works based, freewill religionists', who trample under foot the blood of CHRIST, and will be dealt with, by a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, SOVEREIGN LORD in the LORD's due time!! Until then, the elect children of GOD's only concern should be, the preaching of the gospel of sovereign grace in CHRIST ALONE!!! And we should NOT concern ourselves with the affairs of this world, and its depraved, vile affections!! (1 John 2:15-17 KJV)
Response to Carl... Carl,
It is quite clear to me, that you have not read Luke 2, where Joseph and Mary traveled to Bethlehem because, Rome declared that the "Whole World Be Taxed" I am paraphrasing there, but, if you want to take that term "world " , then we must assume that you are paying taxes every year to Rome?? As you can see, "world" here is being used to describe the Roman Empire, although large, DID NOT encompass the entire "world". Also, if you desire to give the term "world" a singular meaning, perhaps you can explain the text found in John 17:9??? I think that you have been offended by Randy's message, because it gives GOD the glory, and not man, or his puny efforts. Your debate should be with the Living GOD!!! Your doubts lay with HIM, and not the message!!! You close your comments with "glory be to god"..... I wonder, which "god" do you give glory to?? The "god" who tries to save all, but failed, or the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, who is the author and finisher of ALL things, including salvation??? What shall it be Carl....."freewill"....or FREE GRACE IN CHRIST ALONE?????
A Truth No Natural Man Wants To Hear!! Brother Shepard,
Praise GOD, for inspiring you to preach this vital message!! This is a truth, that natural man hates to hear, and only those, who by GOD's grace, will hear!! Many people I have interacted with, who claim to know God, when faced with this truth, become angry, and many stop speaking with me, when I tell them, what the scriptures say about man's Total Depravity!! How heartbreaking it is, to tell our friends and loved ones of THE GOSPEL, and to have them totally reject it. Believers carry this burden, but we carry it gladly, for we know, by the revelation of the Holy Spirit, that no matter what, our Sovereign LORD is in control, and "shall not the Judge of the earth do right!" May the GOD of all grace bless and keep you, your family, and all those who preach the gospel of God's Dear Son!!!!
A True Blessing To The Believer's Ear!! What a blessing this message was!!! What a great comfort to know, that a great sinner such as I, has a Great Savior, whose blood has washed away my terrible sins!!!Sins of yesterday, today, and the days to come!! A LORD, who cares for His sheep, and will never let us wander, who preserves us, from all the filth of this evil world, yet , like a loving father, chastens us, and causes us to look only to HIM, for everything!!! May the LORD of all grace bless and keep you, Brother Mahan, and may HE continue to bless and uphold your ministry, and continue to keep your family as well!!
Message Truly Inspired of GOD!! Brother Fortner,
Once again, our Sovereign LORD has given you, by HIS grace, a message truly vital , to those who are the elect in CHRIST JESUS our LORD!!! I thank our LORD for preachers such as you, for proclaiming the gospel of sovereign grace in CHRIST!! And an Almighty GOD, who is, and forever shall be, in control of ALL things!!! May our LORD continue to bless you, and all those who faithfully proclaim the gospel of God's dear Son!!!
Vital Message!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brother Don,
What a joy it is, to hear a message that truly honors our Sovereign LORD!!! I thank our LORD, for inspiring you to deliver this vital message, and for every sovereign grace preacher everywhere, who by GOD'S grace, deliver the gospel of The LORD JESUS CHRIST!!! May HE continue to bless your ministry, and may HE strengthen you, as you uncompromisingly declare the Sovereign Grace of GOD in CHRIST JESUS our LORD !!
A true message of hope, to real sinners!!!!! Brother Harding,
What a glorious message our LORD has breathed into you!!! What a precious gift salvation is, when it is in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!! and not in an experience,or a decision man makes!!! There will be many people that will look upon this message and be offended,and hate you for it,but, to those who have been brought to a saving knowledge of the MASTER, these words are as sweet as manna!!! May our LORD continue to bless you,and all of the preachers of the GOSPEL of GOD'S DEAR SON!!!!
Powerful Message!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brother Fortner,
Once more, you deliver an uncompromising and powerful message that gives our LORD all the glory!!!! The biblical truth, that the true believer, in CHRIST, does indeed live under burden,darkness and trials, but has ,by GOD'S boundless grace,like Micah, have the gift of faith,to know that our LORD, will bring us forth to that marvelous light!!! May you, by GOD's grace,be blessed to deliver these vital truths for years to come!!!!!!
