Great Sermon! Wow Pastor Joe!
This sermon is for EVERYONE in the body of Christ who needs to know their value in the 'grand scheme' of God's plan.
Your use of the didactic illustration and investigative exposure of the Greek (something you always make interesting) was especially creative and grounded in God's Word and spiritual logic as well.
Your sermons get better and better, dear friend! God's truly in you 'to will and to act according to His good purpose'.
Blessings in Christ,
Martin & Nancy
Great Sermon! Beautiful and powerful sermon. What great blessings and treasures that I know I am guilty of taking for granted. Paul didn't, and neither should I, it is so incredible, so immense, so eternal to be granted the blessing to be Jesus eternal friend.
Familiarity breeds awe! So true!
Great Sermon! Oh to dwell on God's unsearchable riches! Not as the modern church does in many places around the world, as in the Health, wealth and I stopped smoking and drinking, unsearchable riches. Although all those things are good, but that's not the riches that Paul states in the book of Ephesians. No, these riches are true biblical riches. Give a listen to this sermon to learn what they are, although they are all found in your Bible.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your meaty messages. Christ and Christ alone, our only hope, not in continuing my gaze on "the wind and the waves" that come and go. Much needed reminder, thank you so much.
Great Sermon! What a sermon, finally the mystery is revealed, and the games are over! Jew and Gentile one in Christ, saved by grace alone through faith, fully justified in Him. Eph 2:8-9, Romans 4:18-25
Listen and take heart in the application of this sermon.
P*O*W*E*R*F*U*L !!!!!!! It's high time that the Church of Jesus Christ wake up and take a long hard look at the condition and motives of their hearts, for God will certainly not be mocked. A somber message for the dark days that we are living in.
Great Sermon! Sir,
This is the most convicting sermon I ever heard. I took the liberty of sending it to share with Clancy@cnn.com whose online question last night on CNN was "Is Israel justified in killing the life of sworn enemies?" or something similar to which I replied from Leviticus 24:17 and down to v.22 plus your sermon. Thank you.
Very interesting and practical Sermon! Very interesting and insightful. I had not heard of the various ideas associated with Jephthah's daughter not necessarily being a burnt offering - that was interesting; but particularly insightful was Pastor Bill's observation that Jephthah, after making a rash vow, could have atoned for his foolishness (as provision was made in the law for atonement for rash vows), but he did not make use of this. Instead, seeking to attain his own righteousness, Jephthah sought to fix his first sin by breaking another law. It is a reminder of the need that we all have for grace - as well as our propensity to attempt to keep one law foolishly thinking that this will "atone" for breaking another.
Wonderful Sermon! Thank you again Pastor Bill for bringing out the truth in Scripture in this wonderful chapter of Romans. It is God who justifies, and truth be told, we will never be good enough in and of ourselves apart from the finished work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
God is not mocked! How we need to hear this message loud and clear in today's church. As a society and we are all influenced by the society in which we live in more ways we realize,dislike authority over us. Be it the home, school, employment, government, church and ultimately God we do not want to be told what to do or think. This message is filled with God's truth, His warnings to us. In our land we are indeed reaping the whirlwind from our past sowing. Oh God have mercy and help us take heed to Your Word and may we by Your grace sow to rightousness for the glory of Your Name!
Great Sermon! Do you think that you have been rejected by people in the past and God can not use you? Learn from your past, do not dwell on it. Listen to this message and hear how God used rejected ones like David, Joseph and Jephthah. Thank you Pastor Bill for this message.
Most Relevant Sermon for Our Nation Today Wake up Christians...our God is a God of mercy, but let us not be imbalanced, for He is also a God of justice. He has provided prayers for us to pray as King David prayed beseeching the Lord to deal with the wicked in government who were destroying and polluting the land/culture with ungodly, grievous perversions in cities, states and country. If we are living righteously before the Lord we have a right to ask
our Lord to execute justice on the wicked and to name them specifically. The Lord decides the type of judgment which will come to whomever we bring before him. Open your mouth and pray! Then go vote for righteous leaders who love what God loves and hate what God hates.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Bill for such a wonderful view of how difficult prayer can be and that we are not alone in this. I pray this will encourage others to keep on praying and not to feel inferior in this part of their Christian walk.
Important Sermon! What more is needed to prove that modern church is apostate because it does not recognize the truth of this psalm--"The godly man now ceases", where modern Christianity thinks there is a giant multitude of real Christians! "Speaking idly with their neighbor, flattering lips and double hearts" speak, every professor is called "brother", shaking hands to welcome to fellowship every visitor. "Many will come in my name claiming to be 'Christ-ian'", Christ warned of such.
Bare profession, flattering fellowship are the rule of the day...but the "faithful disappear from the sons of men".
Important Sermon! The message is another proof that something HUGE is wrong with the modern church. What is the cause? How has modern Christianity come to such a wrong conclusion, such bad theology that actually condemns the Justice of God? The answer can be found partially in what the church sings....instead of singing the holy inspired Psalms of God! Singing is to be with "psalms, hymns and songs--all spiritual (prophetic)", which are mean to "speak to one another with". 18th century hymns and latter all Omit Impreccatory singing for "sentimentalism" that has swept all into another gospel (Arminian), and another theology--one actually opposed to the Justice of God.
Psalm-singing is necessary to bust the false church and revive the genuine.
Powerful Sermon!! To the wind with the sentamental and false preachers that are crippling the Body of Christ! May God raise up more preachers and teachers as Pastor Poss who is not ashamed or fearful of speaking the truth as plainly as it is written in the Scriptures. May God continue to bless the ministry of Bread of Life Fellowship.
Powerful Sermon!! A sermon filled with great encouragement to prove that modern techiques and manipulations on man's part are absolute vanity. The Power is in the Word of God, which brings about conviction through the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! May God continue to bless your ministry Pastor Poss!
