Great Sermon! Once again, Pastor Savastio, you have presented an excellent sermon. I love that I am Reformed Baptist. I was fortunate to be raised in a Reformed Baptist Church. However, there is not one in my area. There isn't any reformed teaching type churches near. What would you suggest in a case like this? I would love your thoughts. Thank you once again for a great sermon. God bless.
Excellent message! This message is a great example of evaluating the events of our lives in the light of God's Word. It is not merely a history lesson, but a strong testimony to God's sovereignty and help in times of trouble.
VERY POWERFUL This is one of the most powerful sermons I have yet to hear on sermon audio. This is a must listen for everyone who professes to be a christian. Thank you for presenting it how you did. God bless.
Great Sermon! This message was wonderfully enlightening on the life of Spurgeon. I learn a lot. Thank you! It is so interesting that Spurgeon, Edwards, Wycliffe, Tyndale and John Calvin all died at the age of 56. I never knew that before. I also loved what Spurgeon said about not being ashamed of being a baptist or calvinist but that his creed is Jesus Christ. That was very powerful. God bless.
Powerful & Inspiring Sermon This is a powerful and inspiring sermon on our Savior's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Jim Savastio explains how Jesus in Luke 19:28-40 fulfills very amazing prophecies of his entering Jerusalem in Psalm 118 and Zechariah 9. This sermon is well worth listening to and sharing with others.
AWESOME! AMAZING! PERFECT! This is one topic that just excites my heart to no end. I love hearing about the sovereingty of God...especially when it comes to salvation. For I know that if it wasn't for His great mercy on me, I would be lost forever. This is one of the BEST sermons I have heard on the Sovereignty of God in Salvation. Thank you and may God continue to bless you as you bless so many by your faithful teachings.
AMAZING SERMON! This message was absolutely amazingly preached. It touched on so much from faithfulness during sickness to the blessed hope of being made whole one day. Thank you for bringing this story on the woman's healing out the way you did! God bless.
Practical, helpful instruction on workplace Christianity Grant Jones gives wise counsel in living our Christian faith in the work place. His message rings authentic and spirit-filled, and is helpful at many levels. This clip would make for a lively discussion in Sunday School or Bible study groups.
Katrina & Luke 13:1-8 Of all the possible sermon topics in response to hurricane Katrina focusing on Luke 13:1-8 and what Jesus has to say to a similar tragic circumstance will be absolutely essential for pastors and bible believers.
We need to draw the right lessons from hurricane Katrina and proclaim those lessons especially to those now looking to God for answers.
More than a year ago Jim Savastio preached a powerful message of repentance and hope in Christ. This is a model sermon with a message that needs to be proclaimed now with power and humility to the entire nation.
Powerful Sermon!!!!!!! Jim Savastio exposition of Jesus's parable on prayer is filled with insight and deeply moving. He rightly condemns the view that the church will never suffer violent persecution. Jim states tell that to the Christians made into human torches for Nero's court, the reformers murdered during the reformation or those recently suffering persecution in communist countries.
I would add tell that to the 1.5 million Armenians slaughtered by the Ottoman Turks for their faith. In a recent work "The Burning Tigris" by Peter Balakian the author relates the followng eyewitness account of the storming of a church by an islamic mob:
"The mob had plundered the Gregorian church, desecrated it, murdered all who had sought shelter there...The leader of the mob cried: "Muhammede salavat" Believe in Mohammed and deny your religion. No one answered....The leader gave the order to massacre. The first attack was on our pastor. The blow of an axe decapitated him. His blood, spurting in all directions, spattered the walls and ceiling."
Jim Savastio explains how Jesus's question will he find faith when he returns relates directly to the importance and power of prayer in all our lives especially when we are suffering and God does not immediately deliver us.
fearful message Good message. These passages are sometimes hard to stomach, though.
I would have stressed more the importance of the perseverance of the saints, but that is just me. Jim has a message that does not go beyond the intent of the text, and therefore, makes the text clear and more understandable. Thank you and keep up the good exegesis and explanations of God's word.
