Great Sermon! -- on Topic on Target-- and short! There is a transcript for this excellent and--very short sermon--in PDF format ¬∂ http://tinyurl.com/hra4co9 ¬∂ John points out, "...Let me tell you something. The people who are leading our government are not the enemy, they are
the mission field. What would you do with that mission field? The last thing you want to do is to turn
them against you. In fact, this will shake you up, the people in authority are identified in verse [Romans 1:] 4 as a
minister of God. A minister of God? That‚Äôs exactly right because they function within a divine
institution...government. They may not know God but they function in a delegated way for God to
provide a common grace of well-being and civil tranquility" ¬∂ 'So we do all we can to keep peace, to support the government, to be model citizens, to do good. Again, Robert Huldane, ‚ÄúThe institution of civil government is a dispensation of mercy and its existence is so indispensable that the moment it ceases under one form, it reestablishes itself in another.‚ÄĚ If you ever wanted to ask yourself how depraved man is, just look at behavior that is unrestrained. How long would it take if we had no police and no government for deadly chaos to disrupt the life of this city? That‚Äôs the human heart.' ¬∂ Disobeying, listen to start of sermon.
An excellent expositional sermon on eschatology! Notice this is a fine explanation! ¬∂ http://tinyurl.com/zr7nzge (Transcript for this sermon) ¬∂ This sermon shows how book of Zechariah relates to eschatology! I will point out that most MP4 files can be played on android devices. Unfortunately, it's a huge file,. Even my tablet with Android Jellybean couldn't play it with the SA popup player. With my high speed Internet connection, I was able to play the video in the background while reading the transcript on my Windows desktop. This worked out well. ¬∂ If you can't play the video, and you don't want to try to download the video file, certainly see the transcript. It is excellent. It is a very good replica of what was spoken. I would hope sometime this sermon is put up as an MP3. ¬∂ John MacArthur from the sermon: "Again we acknowledge, Lord, that Your Word is supernatural, divine, heavenly, transcendent, that it tells us things written two thousand five hundred years ago that are accurate and we can see on the horizon, even now. Truly this is Your Word and the God who has declared the future is the God who can save us from the future judgment. We know that You save us only when we mourn over our sin and embrace Christ as Savior."
Awaking Sermon on Discernment! Playing God is dangerous! This sermon is warned with great observation between godly judgment and criticizing others. Learning this truth as you walk in discernment. Thanks for sharing with us Pastor John MacArthur. I enjoyed listening. God Bless.
Great Sermon on political leaders One doesn't get to see many comments about Bishop J.C. Ryle. I found Bishop Ryle's comments on government very interesting as of course, John's. Something different from John and well worth listening to.
Great Sermon! John, words of encouragement for you from my heart: I thank God for inspiring you to transmit His Truth. The Lord is with you. My prayers of thanks include you. May God bless you and yours always and all ways. Even so come Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Great Sermon! Apostle Paul teaches there will be two thrones of Judgment - one for Jesus and one for God, so where does the election fit in there?
Christianity is a faith of choice not force as is Islam and other faiths where leaving your pagan beliefs is forbidden. Personally, I believe there are those elected and chosen for specific purposes and those who are not but chose to follow regardless. To prove the point that it is choice we have to remember that those elected or chosen had to consent to God's will for them and this even included Mary in carrying Jesus. She consented to it - she was not forced as Hagar was in carrying Ishmael.
The elect is a select group, but this does not disregard the free choice of mankind who decides to be a follower of Jesus when presented with the gospel. As well, we are not to think that all those outside of the faith are to be condemned either. Christianity is not a club of "I'm in and you're out" or there would be no great white throne of Judgment for all the world. Where these is no law, there is no judgment and those outside of the faith God alone will judge and this will have nothing to do with Jesus Christ of the New Covenant.
Great Sermon! We are on the same page. If feel like you thoughts were mine Pastor MacArthur before you spoke them, hard to describe but we are in sych. I am so pleased with the tireless work of the Church much that is still new to me, I feel under-educated. Please enjoy your Christian Freedom this Sunday and everyday thanks to myself and many other who often remain nameless to show no pride as angels. God Bless!
Great Sermon! I have nothing but love and respect for pastor MacArthur. This sermon is a must listen as a reminder to us of the most important commandment and what it looks like. Unforgiveness, slander, bitterness & gossip has no place in the life of a believer.
Great Sermon! Chaps 1 through 4 of Rev. Observation ¬∂ 28:56 (24 Min.) Min. long, Part 1 of 3, Introduction to series. This sermon helps give a foundation for the Book of Revelation. ¬∂ The Book of Revelation is one of the most misinterpreted books in the Bible. Don't seal the Book of Revelation. God wants you to know what the Book teaches. Blessed is the person who reads the book. It's the only Book in the Bible that starts with a blessing and ends with a blessing to the reader. God wants to show his children the glorified Jesus. What also sets the book apart; it is a message from the Trinity! Note on the 7-fold Spirit! ¬∂ Isaiah 11:1 A shoot will come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of Yahweh will rest on him: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh. ¬∂ The Book is dedicated to the glory of the Coming Christ -- Amen -- So let it be. Christ is the almighty God. ¬∂ Not only were the seven churches actual churches, but these churches are representative of the different churches through the ages. Dominant influence in a present day church gives character of one of these seven churches to the present-day church. ¬∂ An ad starts 24 minutes into the program. Fine, informative sermon.
Great Sermon! Brandon, they use the NASB for the bulletins at John's Church. If memory serves that would probably be the preferred Bible. But note: http://www.gty.org/resources/print/questions/QA167 "Which Bible translation is best?" article by John. It would no doubt benefit you, if you got one of John's Study Bibles, which are for the NASB, ESV, and NKJV. ¬∂ Dr. Thomas who is a professor at Masters Seminary was one of the translators for the NASB. You probably couldn't go wrong getting an NASB to follow John's sermons especially one his study Bibles.
