Great Sermon! Brother Douglas,
Your message on the Baptisms John spoke of and your use of the old testament scriptures to provide sound teaching of the new testament is how God intends for His children to know Him and why He sent His Son to this earth for us. I believe this also gives us understanding to Malachi 4. This should also edify those who are following man in their walk with Jesus Christ instead of studying the scripture and allowing the Holy Ghost to guide them in that walk.
I would like to hear your study of the Baptism with fire which is also back up in the old testament and not taught or preached on these days.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Great Sermon! I studied this scripture and then search for a sermon that preached what the bible truth is regarding being tried while on this journey on this earth and the true confessions of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives. I would also refer to Matthew 3:11-12 of what no greater profit John the Baptist reveled to us with regards to the baptism with fire. Also the Paul in Hebrews 6:1&2 of the principles of the doctrine of Christ. This is the milk of the Word of God. In todays language "We are a work in progress" and we are not the potter of that work. God almighty is the Christian's potter!
Overwhelmed with my Ignorance! I was overwhelmed by my ignorance of the love God has for me. The message touched me in my spirit. Truly my soul was touched by the truth of Gods love for me and all true believers. I thank God for the understanding of those truths by Pastor Paul and the gifts the Lord has given him to teach us with understanding and knowledge, those truths in His word. I will walk in the way of the Lord and His love a changed child of God.
