Great Sermon! I hate to seemingly race bait, but I must comment on the person who suggested that slavery in America wasn't all bad. I'm sorry but you absolutely can never say that and be taken seriously. Just because some slaves happened to get some education doesn't discount all the horrors of that period in our history. Furthermore someone on the program stated that churches back then weren't regenerated or saved. How convenient of a statement!! Naturally they thought they were in the right. Man, only certain type of people continue to make these kind of blind statements
Great Sermon! I don't agree with him suing the church. However, I want to share with you what happened to an ex-Muslim in our church. He did confess his conversion and you know what the result was? Muslims killed his Muslim sister..
Right on point The difference is there are many "professing" Christians, but only a few whose nature has been changed by God - meaning they are the genuine Christians. You will know them by their fruit. So to be clear, "professing" Christian husband and "professing" Christian wife.
Second attack A new attack, inspired by the same source.
Her mother said, "She was someone different during the attack."
Another spirit A "reformed" Christian? No, she is a "professing" Christian just like most who "profess" Christianity in this nation and abroad. As I listen to the discussion, sounds like she did not experienced the New Birth according to the Word of God. Remember? Sean- God Is holy holy holy holy holy holy holy holy holy....... No understanding of her sin - even her good works are like filthy rags before holy God? If it was the Spirit of God in Christ Jesus who visited her, she would be sharing how much she was forgiven and all that of the New Birth. Time will tell. Also, she felt that the Holy Spirit 's visit was like an invasion??? No, the Spirit of God did not come upon her. That was a different spirit - not of God for the purpose to grant her salvation. She has not been born again. Just another person "professing" Christianity. The Spirit of God will complete His work in the one God called to repentance. Whenever man adds his two cents it just brings more confusion. God's Word Is true and amen.
...by way of media outlets Demons can and do become visible to the child of God walking in the Spirit of God for the purpose of testing. But like you said, they cannot inhabit a person born from above.
As far as those two 12 year old girls, they're to young to be charged as adults. They probably hadn't even started their period. Why isn't something being done about all the satanic activities taking place on TV, in movies, video games, phone apps, in schools, etc. Yes, whatever it was that those girls were involved in was satanic. Folks are being brainwashed daily. Those girls weren't demon possessed. Smh.This is just the beginning. Charge all the kids as adults? How about going after the suppliers, distributors, etc.
Great Sermon! Why would a married person be communicating with someone of the opposite sex on his or her cell phone, unless it's a relative or, perhaps, STRICTLY for work purposes? When you marry, things change. If having opposite sex "friends" upsets your spouse, as well it should, then you need to cut that person off. The workforce can be a very dangerous place, especially for women. It is a godly jealousy that wants one's spouse all to him or herself.
green,green grass I,respectfully,disagree with Cezar.A happy marriage is an ideal and all marriages will experience ups and downs. "The grass is always greener on the other side"- so most people think who haven't seen all the manure that it takes to get it that way. Husbands and wives beware.Any communication between members of the opposite sex should be accessible to their partners. After all,it is already in full view of God.
Disturbing In the West, where we often deny the existence of the supernatural, this is probably how a manifestation of demonic influence is seen.
Just think about cultures in Africa or Asia - is it not obvious the demonic influence in those cultures? It just seems more obviously spiritual because people there believe in spirits.
Great Sermon! People stumble over "He learned obedience" (Heb 5:8); yes Jesus learned something. People today have a hard time with the humanity of Jesus much like those in NT times. Peter was scandalized twice by Jesus' actions (speaking about being rejected and executed like a criminal, and a servant who washed his dirty feet). Jesus a friend of sinners, accused of being a glutton and a drunkard, touching lepers, allowing bleeding women to touch Him; having a heavy heart nearly to the point of death (sad/depressed?); asking the Father for a last minute change of the divine plans if it was possible; YET WITHOUT SIN. GOD in the flesh scandalizes people but it is essential to salvation to believe this (1 Tim 3:16, 1 John 4:2, 2 John 7). Now what is a mistake; misspelling words, tripping over someone's feet, mispronunciation, striking out? I wouldn't call those sins. Some Christians calls everything a sin; some don't call anything a sin. Which makes my point: when it comes to sin we are the sin professionals par excellence; not Jesus. But is every mistake and error a sin? "To err is human to forgive is divine." Jesus, the sinless God/man! This brings me back to His baptism; He didn't need to do it; but in doing it sinless Jesus identified Himself with sinful me; and that was no mistake!
No Excuses Familiar with their (church and school) practices. Apostate! I will not excuse them. Just because they "profess" Christianity means nothing -- many do the same. Examine the fruit and the fruit isn't based on what they put in their books. Anyone can write a "Christian" book. There is something seriously wrong in the churches today and shame on anyone, including myself, who are not able or willing to forsake all others and follow Christ Jesus.
Great Sermon! Jesus puts the rapture on the last day (John 6). Paul places it at the last trump (1 Cor 15), Revelation puts the resurrection after the tribulation (Rev 20:6), Jesus is coming as a thief after the tribulation (Rev 16:15), the Day of the Lord comes after the sun and moon are darkened (Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20). Paul exhorts the Church to watch for the Day of the Lord (1 Thess 5). 2 Thess 2:1 ties the 2nd Coming and the "gathering" together as the same event after the man of sin is revealed. The word Parousia (coming) is common to both Matt 24 and 1 Thess 4. I could go on and on. The evidence for a post-trib rapture is so overwhelming it defies belief anyone could believe otherwise. But no, apparently there will be 2 resurrections of the dead in Christ, 2 2nd Comings, 2 last days, 2 last trumps, Jesus will be coming as a thief twice, ...
Everything is duplicated for the convenience of sparing the Church the tribulation.
Oh, and nice work guys.
