Thank You Lord Jesus The Lord woke me this morning and laid on my heart to listen to this sermon yet again. When I reached this page and saw the date that this sermon was preached I smiled and thanked God. 40 years to the day and this sermon still resonates. It's a miracle of God.
I needed to hear this sermon again. I was reminded that I am God's workmanship, not of my own. Not of anyone else's.
Through the mouth of Henry Mahan does God speak. Thank you Lord Jesus for allowing me to hear your word.
A Cornucopia of Insights Yes, the sermon is about the Ascension. More or less. Henry expounds on various things regarding the ascension, but isn't really following a specific line of thinking. He says in the beginning of the sermon that he isn't sure about the topic. So he just goes with it and let's the Lord send His message. As well he should do.
The sad thing about this sermon is that it is cut off in the middle of something Henry is saying. Maybe it's important, we won't ever know. And that's sad when sermons are cut short like that. But at least we have this much of it.
You just can never go wrong with Henry. He is one of those rare, rare jewels that God placed on this earth and used as a messenger of His Holy word. I am so thankful that God allowed me to hear this man preach His word.
God Bless Henry Mahan.
Henry At His Best I am studying this particular passage of scripture right now and had forgotten that Henry had preached on it until I searched SermonAudio and it came up. I had listened to it before & commented that it had no Transcript, but today I was listening in regard to the passage specifically. And Henry didn't let me down.
How I wish that I could have had the privilege of sitting in his church & listening to him preach back in the day. A true regret that I have.
He points out the ugliness of self-righteousness and points directly to it. We are all guilty of it to some degree, but he goes beyond that and shows the difference between those of us who are tricked by it & those who live it as a way of life.
I am so glad that God has chosen to show me my sins. It's a hard thing to do - looking at the hideous monster in the mirror, but look I must because that is who I am - like it or not.
When it comes to real preaching and real preachers - you can NEVER go wrong with Henry. God bless him. I thank God that He used Henry to deliver His message - especially to me.
Great Sermon! God divine plan has brought me to his servant and what a blessing he has been to my soul with his messages. This message in particular impacted in ways that can be expressed. I am so blessed by it and I echo with the past commenter. Every believer should listen to this message over and over. Praise God for his word and the servants that preach the truth.
CLEAR BIBLICAL TRUTH!!!!! Brother Harding,
What a joy it is to this sinners ear, to hear this truth! To those brought to a saving knowledge, this is the only balm of hope we have to soothe us in this world! Apart from CHRIST, we have no hope at all! It breaks my heart to hear my friends and loved ones deny their own depravity, and cling to their decision, as a basis for their presumption of their salvation. It is a difficult thing for those in CHRIST to bear, given what our LORD has revealed to us by HIS glorious grace!!! But we know, that no matter what, to GOD be all the glory, and that true and righteous are HIS judgements! And we are thankful, that we, as those who have been shown such precious mercy, can look forward to a day, when we shall be at our Masters feet forevermore!! May the GOD of all grace continue to bless you, and all who uncompromisingly declare The Gospel, of Gods Dear Son!!!!
Glory to God! To the praise of His glorious grace! Thanks be to God for this truth preached through Ptr. Henry Mahan!
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11)
Henry At His Best First, this sermon is inaccurately marked for scripture reference. It has nothing to do with Isaiah 1:18.
The correct scripture references are Isaiah 45:23 & Philippians 2:9-11.
The subject matter is Christ's call to the unconverted. Speaking to those who can hear. How thankful we should be EVERY DAY that Christ chose each one of us. How so very blessed we are in just that alone.
Curious Sermon I love Henry Mahan. I love his style of preaching. He preaches the true word of God. But for the first time in listening to him; in this sermon, I heard definite struggling. This was a hard sermon for Henry to preach. I have been looking for someone who could explain Matthew 18:9 (if the eye offend thee). I wanted a clearer understanding of the meaning of that scripture. This was a hard task for Henry. I came away with a little more understanding, but I wish he could have done better. Everybody has bad days, this was one of Henry's.
Thank You Jesus For Brother Mahan Thank you Lord Jesus for allowing us to learn your word through your preacher Henry Mahan. This is one of the best sermons he ever did. Thank you Lord Jesus for allowing me to hear this sermon and have my ears and eyes opened a little more. I love you. Thank you for choosing and saving me.
Perfect Sermon One of Henry's finest sermons. Actually it is a sermon at all, more like a teaching. For anyone who is not clear on communion and what it's TRUE meaning is - then listen to this. You need it, trust me.
I wasn't clear on it myself - thanks churches & preachers of today. But Henry explained it and now I know what it is. It's simple when you understand it.
Great Sermon! I will have to listen to this sermon many times, I got saved in 1959 at the 12th st Baptist church in Lake Charles LA. Jesus has always been faithful to me even when I was not faithful to Him. I Thank God Almighty for "The Gospel of the Grace of God....James
Sermon Titled Incorrectly The correct title is "Seven WORDS From Calvary. The first 1/3 of the sermon Henry talks about patience and learning how to read the Word of God. He references Romans, Luke & Hebrews. Then he finally states the name of the sermon and starts getting into the body of the sermon.
Is This A Two Part Sermon? There are two sermons, identically marked, same exact date - BUT the times are different. As well as the scripture references. Is it correct to assume that the is Part 1 since it is 1 Corinthians?
Is This A Two Part Sermon? There are two sermons, identically marked, same exact date - BUT the times are different. As well as the scripture references. Is it correct to assume that the is Part 2 since it is 2 Corinthians?
Always Impressed As always, Henry impresses me with his deep understanding and beautiful delivery of the word of God. I learn so much from him. This particular sermon is outstanding in its depth of teaching. Henry references the following scripture:
1 John 4
2 John 1:11
The title is misleading in a way to those who aren't in tune with Henry and his style. What Henry is teaching is about being a bond servant and counting the costs.
Incorrect Title of Sermon This sermon is incorrectly titled. In the very first moments of the sermon Henry clearly states that he will be speaking on the subject of Jehovah Shalom from Philippians 1:6.
