Great Encouragment! I had made the mistake of allowing the soil of discouragement to come into my mind and heart as my husband and I are in a trial that we cannot escape from, and we have been in it for a while. We know it is by the Lord's hand, and we had prayed that the Lord would show us how we wanted us to respond so that we honor him. I listened to this sermon, and the Lord's answer came to me in it, and my heart was flooded with so much peace when I confessed my discouragement to the Lord, and I have shared this with my husband and daughter to bring a blessing to them. I know the Lord brought me to this sermon, and I thank this dear man of God for making it available here on SermonAudio. I know it will bless many who are looking to deal with trials God's way and have peace while waiting on the Lord to work His will. God bless you!
What Great Encouragement! A wonderful reminder of God's sovereignty! Excellent message and so encouraging! If we have faith in our salvation, we should also place our faith in God's sanctifying work. Keep trusting God. Don't let Satan make you doubt God's provision and faithfulness. He's the loving Author and Finisher of our faith. He will never leave or forsake us. God bless you brother!
Message of Hope! I'm so grateful for messages like this from the faithful few that are still desirous to hold fast to the word of God. I also have family who have abandoned the true and needed doctrine of the pre-trib rapture and it has been both mind-boggling as well as heart-breaking. If ever there was a time when we needed to hold to this doctrinal truth is now!! This is only an evidence of the sadly growing apostasy that has produced apathy and set the stage for the antichristian mentality that says man will solve all problems here on earth. I will keep looking for the soon, imminent hope of the rapture. It's a sure hope!
If You Need Your Faith Renewed Listen To This! This message helped to remind me of where my faith needs to always rest, whether in trials or in prosperity. But especially in trials or testings, we must always remind ourselves that God is our "Father". He loves us, and has a reason for all that we face in this life to prepare and prove us as His dear children. We must seek to surrender our lives to His care. I have been blessed by the word of God purely and humbly given from this faithful vessel.
Worth The Listen! Preach the truth and see how popular your messages will be. Only the few willing the make the committment to entrust all to Christ and forsake all for Him will travel that narrow road. It is not the broad road of self made religion, but the way Christ Jesus has provided; but you must forsake all to follow Him. I pray that this message will encourage both laymen and ministers alike to continue pressing our way in age where many are turning away from the faith, and preach and live only the truth; for only then can we have the confidence that we are His and are ready to meet Him.
Good For Self-Examination..... I do appreciate messages like this that gives the truth as it relates to the dangerous doctrine of the carnal Christian. It does seem to be just another excuse to live a life after the flesh, while claiming the insurance of salvation. It's deceptive, and we all need these kinds of sermons that remind us of the truth relating to the true Christian regeneration experience. There are too many confident professing Christians who may be in error as it relates to their salvation. Only the truth will set us free.
I was glad to hear him speak about how many carnal or nominal Christians like to only speak of God in terms of "love, love, love", while ignoring the fact that He is also a Holy God that hates sin and wickedness in men. This should cause trembling and fear in such false confident professors of Christ, but instead bringing out the truth of this will always cause the natural man to be hostile. Alot of Christians shun close self examination of their faith, but I am glad to hear from this sermon that it is a good thing to do; especially in such a deceptive and increasingly wicked time.
This sermon will be an important part of my audio sermon library. I am grateful to Elder Poss for the preaching of God's truth.
I Greatly Appreciate This Sermon! Wonderful exposition on the Kingdom of God in contrast to earthly kingdoms of men. Staying true to the scriptures, this message helps to dispell false Christian movements which seek to advance the kingdom through carnal means and carnal reasoning, in showing why they are unbiblical. It also helps the believer to gain a more clearer understanding of how Jesus Christ is already advancing the Kingdom, our real role in this, and the glorious aspects of it's future that awaits us.
I'm very appreciative once again for the pure preaching from God's word from this minister.
Important Message! I greatly appreciate this message on how believers can and must always see the authoritative and divine word of God in the scriptures. It cuts to the quick in dispelling the lies of relativism. I appreciate this greatly as a believer.
Excellent Message! I truly give thanks to God the Father for graciously enabling Pastor LoSardo to wonderfully expound upon the rare message of the glory of God, and how we as believers have been given this glory through grace and truth. After recieving true revelation and understanding of this message, it cannot help but give the true believer an even more clearer understanding of our purpose here on earth as we await redemption, and an even greater picture of the eternal hope that is to come!! It cannot help but be a purifying hope, that sets a focus heavenward to the eternal glory that awaits us! So encouraging and inspiring a message!
Timely Message! Self-indulgence and sufficiency is indeed a sin that puts the world in the Christian and keeps them from having the heart of God. I am grateful for this message. The heart that truly longs for and seeks after God, and seeing sufficiency in Christ alone is one who can be truly in this world and not of it. I pray that the Lord will give me more of a desire for Him and to know and understand Him.
Regardless of what the majority may do in Christendom, we can't look to the world's standards as a measure to judge heavenly standards. When we see, with a heart of true contrition, God's divine standards, through the finished work of Christ, we can rightly focus on the goal set before us with great reverence and love for the One who redeemed us. Glory be to God for this exhortative message of truth.
