Great Sermon! Thanks for the message! I thought it was excellent. I think you may be correct in that the war in heaven may be in connection to the rapture of the saints. Also, I appreciated what you said about Christ being an advocate in contrast to the devil being our accuser.
Interesting angle from a Washingron Times piece. Getting close to the election for articles like this to get through the editor without a purpose. But then again I assume media outlets have an agenda...silly me.
Great Sermon! If the Devil had the capability to sit down at the time of the great spiritual downgrade with the demons and come up with one ploy to have men replace the God of scripture with another idol...then sport would be top of the list. Soccer in the UK...teams and players idolised as 'gods' and terrace anthems replacing hymns, whilst stadiums replace churches for the Lord's Day, gathering to sing odes to the gods of football, paid millions for kicking a piece of leather, often poor examples of human beings these superstars are often prideful sinful men setting a wicked example. Ladies aping men in the 21st century playing men's sports Rugby and football, dressed in less than most Victorian saints underwear. Something is amiss with this love of the world and love of money?
I'm absolutely no fan fan of this president what so EVER! But let's all remember that former president George W. Bush not only left our southern border open, but imprisoned Border Guards for doing so. I only mention this because we have a corruption problem in this country that's flood waters spill across both political parties. Only the Lord Jesus will bring righteousness to the world. I think we should remember who the enemy is, the prince of the power of the air. Vilifying one another over loyalty to unrighteous political leaders isn't productive. Give God The Glory
I can relate, the lack of honoring the office during this admin. Writing in a candidate will be the only way for me to vote this election. I pray no offense has been created here. My intentions in writing to begin with were in reaction to some earlier posts. I'm afraid we, like so many cultures before us, have moved so far away from Holiness that even the Godly are far away. I often think of the fact that Samson was among his peers, the one whom God chose as their deliverer. How far had the culture slid for Samson to be God's man. Maybe history repeats itself.
Jim, you would vote for anybody who endorses the murder of babies, stands by while Hero's die defending one of her state department out posts, lies to you, me, congress and the American people. Thanks, but no thanks for your endorsement. You might mean well, but no thank you.
Steve R. Remember D. Bonhoeffer. I know we are not Nazi Germany. And I'm NOT comparing Trump to Hitler. But we cannot make small compromises today that will lead to greater ones. Even the nation of Israel offered their children on the altars of Molech.
What we see in our nation currently is proof we are being judged now. If your convinced Mr. Trump will do what you have stated then your conscience is clear. But I've interviewed and hired many people and based on what I've seen during Donald's interview, coupled with his resume...I cannot hire him. Why, like cattle, do we blindly do our "civic duty" and follow the other cow's in front of us believing we have to vote for a man you would be embarrassed to introduce to your mother. Let alone the King of kings. Friends we are Servants of Christ before we are American citizens. And I am an American through and through. But the Kingdom of God is eternal, what we have now in America is temporary. Our country's problem is not who sits In The Oval Office. The problem is with us and how we live-we need to worthy of the cross of Christ.
It's interesting to me that we seem to be American Christians instead of Christian Americans when it comes to politics. Between the two, Hillary and Donald, which one would you stand before God with a clear conscience having voted for? Our civic duty cannot Trump our faithfulness to Christ. We of little faith. I'm not trying to be self-righteous. God has delivered His people through their righteous actions, not their compromises. Trump and Clinton are offensive to God because they are unrepentant. They are therefore offensive to me and are not worthy of the office of President.
I'm kind of amazed at all the Ted hate out there. I'm with Cory from mi...lets see what November brings, then we will know whom the Cruz's we're hearing from. And what's up with a Mother Jones hit piece as a source in this forum?!?!?
Thanks for taking a stand against PayPal. One problem with many Christians is we continue to do business with these who stand against us. We should pray for these people, but I don't think we should finance their ungodly business.
Not so sure you are correct. I don't believe you are very well informed on London churches or indeed 'Justin Welby'- a very poor choice to represent anything â€˜Christianâ€™-a strange â€˜evangelical' on record as celebrating â€˜the riches of Benedictine and Ignatian spiritualityâ€™ and is ecumenical in his praise for the pope. (note the 39 Articles of the Church of England!) He worshipped at Holy Trinity, Brompton, where the Alpha Course was pioneered. These sort of ecumenical/charismatic/Pentecostal type churches may be growing and attracting immigrants, but are they really the work of God? It isn't always the Biblical gospel that is being preached, but rather the â€˜Jesusâ€™ of ALPHA portrayed more as a â€˜Solver of human problemsâ€™ rather than as a â€˜Saviour from sinâ€™
You should examine the solid churches in the UK on SermonAudio who represent those who are faithful to Godâ€™s Word. Few are large in number, but they evidence the work of Godâ€™s grace. One such church would be Spurgeonâ€™s old church: The Metropolitan Tabernacle-Dr Peter Masters.
I would submit that outside of London there is far less than 1% attending church and in some areas you can travel many miles before you find any faithful Christian never mind a church!
Don't forget the 1st part of 2 Peter 3 vs.9 which says, "long suffering to us". Peter is writing to believers (2 Peter 1 vs.1;2 Peter 3 vs1) and are a different group than the scoffers in vs.3. It seems clear to me that it is the elect that He is not willing to perish and come to repentance. If God desired everybody to repent and be saved could He not do it? John 5 vs.21; John 17 vs.2; 2 Timothy vs.24-25.
