Lordship Regeneration There are those persons who say that can't believe in Lordship Salvation. So, let us call it Lordship Regeneration. What do I mean? In the new birth,the mind is enlightened, the will is renewed Ephesians 2:1, the enmity of the heart (Romans 8:7)is slain and the affections are changed from hate to love towards God. So if you have a "saint" who claims that he has been born again but won't bow to Jesus, still hates Him, and his mind is still in darkness, his profession is a lie and the moment he got to heaven, it will feel like hell to him anyway, because his heart would still prefer the company of devils. Spurgeon would never have taught that someone who has been justified by faith still has had nothing done to his depraved heart. God deals with both the bad RECORD and the bad HEART. But with this modern generation of professing Christians, they have mixed up justification and regeneration so if you tell them that they must bear fruit - which is an effect of the new birth, they cry LEGALISM. As if regeneration was a forensic term.
Great Sermon! I loved this sermon! I already knew what he preached, but I have been listening to a lot of preachers that are making our Lord's gospel difficult! It bothers me, so I needed to hear the Gospel the way Christ taught it! Please stop the Lordship Salvation preaching. We are all horribly equal sinners before our Lord!
Great Sermon! God started 2 teach me about christmas a few years ago, little by little,but i wasn't sure if christmas it self was ok. I stopped using the tree & decorations, but continued 2 put up some lights & dinner. Well after watching a few video's & ur video i will not be celebrating any of the traditional holiday's anymore. Thank u so much 4 this teaching. God bless!
Great Audio Book Choice I have often thought, as a book narrator, that if someone will listen to a book that they might otherwise not read, the hours of narrating is worth it. This is a great choice for a book. I know from experience that when we had 5 copies of this book for sale in our church book store, it didn't move. That is quite depressing, but I for one will listen to your narrations of this title and maybe the book will get the respect it deserves if others will listen as well. God be with you brother in your narrations.

Great Sermon! what a tremendous message from Pastor Martin of the time we now living in, and a reminder to all of us who are the Lord's to persevere, though all things may seem against us, not only in the spiritual battles but also in our afflictions and trials, which are great.
Do make sure you hear this message. It is God's right and perfect timing.

Helpful for Myself Sometimes I narrate a sermon because I have an overwhelming need in my own life. I am not bashful to say that this sermon was narrated because of our 15 year old son who really needs our prayers. Once again yesterday he threatened to commit suicide and was exceedingly depressed and angry. He is also doing drugs. Spurgeon helps so much when he said "we must let the Spirit of submission rule us. so that after seeking the Lord thrice we rest on the promise that His grace is sufficient. But in spiritual mercies, - the conversion of that dear child, there is no taking NO for an answer." I am glad to see that others may be finding this narration helpful as well.

Good Book, an Apology Though the content of this work is great, the narration doesn't flow quite as smoothly as other works. This is easy to explain, it is from a Facimile edition from the 1630's and the original spelling has to be read and sometimes interpreted on the fly while reading. 26 years ago I did this for the first time with a 1602 edition of William Perkins Cases of Conscience also on SermonAudio - http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=10606133657 I trust I have gotten better. Downame's work is quite rare, so was Perkins as well. The works of Perkins are soon to be back in print. Downame's work was reprinted in paperback only.
