Great Sermon! Chaps 1 through 4 of Rev. Observation ¬∂ 28:56 (24 Min.) Min. long, Part 1 of 3, Introduction to series. This sermon helps give a foundation for the Book of Revelation. ¬∂ The Book of Revelation is one of the most misinterpreted books in the Bible. Don't seal the Book of Revelation. God wants you to know what the Book teaches. Blessed is the person who reads the book. It's the only Book in the Bible that starts with a blessing and ends with a blessing to the reader. God wants to show his children the glorified Jesus. What also sets the book apart; it is a message from the Trinity! Note on the 7-fold Spirit! ¬∂ Isaiah 11:1 A shoot will come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of Yahweh will rest on him: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh. ¬∂ The Book is dedicated to the glory of the Coming Christ -- Amen -- So let it be. Christ is the almighty God. ¬∂ Not only were the seven churches actual churches, but these churches are representative of the different churches through the ages. Dominant influence in a present day church gives character of one of these seven churches to the present-day church. ¬∂ An ad starts 24 minutes into the program. Fine, informative sermon.
Great Sermon! Brandon, they use the NASB for the bulletins at John's Church. If memory serves that would probably be the preferred Bible. But note: http://www.gty.org/resources/print/questions/QA167 "Which Bible translation is best?" article by John. It would no doubt benefit you, if you got one of John's Study Bibles, which are for the NASB, ESV, and NKJV. ¬∂ Dr. Thomas who is a professor at Masters Seminary was one of the translators for the NASB. You probably couldn't go wrong getting an NASB to follow John's sermons especially one his study Bibles.
Great Sermon! Correction: Should read, "The government that serves God has its citizens as its primary beneficiary and not itself. It is concerned primarily with rewarding good and punishing evil THAN with "continuity of government."
Great Sermon! Wickedness is always done under the cover of darkness, especially by our throne of iniquity which frames mischief by law(Ps. 94:20), like this, the North American Union, and the NDAA. Shall it have fellowship with God? It shall not. The government that serves God has its citizens as its primary beneficiary and not itself. It is concerned primarily with rewarding good and punishing evil and with "continuity of government."
Thank you. I thank you for your preaching Brother. Gentle suggestion, consider ommiting the introductory music and end of sermon interview they both diminish the preaching of The Word and give it an overall undesirable infomercial feel. Scripture followed by Preaching on the Scripture ending in prayer would provide the most edification and exalting of our King.
I'm still not getting the clearest interpretation. Respectfully, I wish you would have expounded on the last statement of this parable instead of the closing music following it immediately. The statement - Make friends for yourselves, by means of the wealth of unrighteousness, so that when it fails, they will receive you into eternal dwellings.
I can only take this to mean for believers to be as zealous of their eternal future eternally as the corrupt are in this world of their material future.
Is this an accurate interpretation?
Listen to every word deeply i listen to John frequently. Because of his enthusiasm and knowledge of the bible. However, listening to the last five minutes at the talk session, I am a bit leary of his relationship to God. He doesn't seem to know him personally, just His word. He says to confess Jesus as Lord, and believe he is raised from the dead, to be saved..but even the devil believes that...he condemns evangelicalism by saying the people feel God, and that it's not a feeling, but an intellectual understanding of truth. God tells us to not lean on our own understanding. David praised God thru the streets, he knew God, and felt emotion. John goes on to say, look at your life to know if your saved, but we are all sinners, and sin everyday. If we can't save ourselves, than we most definitely can't say we have no sin. It's true, once your saved, you will get better, the closer you are to God, but faith comes from hearing, and it doesn't sound like John personally has heard His voice. I have personally heard His voice, and can describe His personality, Know His thoughts, because I know Him, because I've heard his voice, you can't hear Gods voice and be unmoved..pastor John has been preaching for 40 years, but we need to question those whom we listen to..and receive Gods message from. He cannot speak about e
Excellent Sermon! Idolatry is almost never discussed in most churches yet it is one of the most prevalent sins in our country. It comes in so many forms that most don't recognize it as being one of their own sins. The best ways to see this sin and to keep it out of your life is to study the Holy Scriptures daily and see what It says about your own behavior. The Truth will make it obvious to you and help you keep from any form of idolatry.
POWERFUL! This two part series revolutionized my prayer life at a time when things were getting desperate. God seemed silent and after hearing this, I really prayed and became respectfully bold in my prayer time.
I find it amazing how the Lord responds to our cries when we are desperate and naturally become bold as a result. I think of the people who sought out Jesus (the woman with the bleeding disorder, the woman whose daughter had a demon, the Centurion, and even the paralytic whose friends were bold enough to lower him down through the roof to reach Jesus. All those acts were desperate and were, as a result, bold. Let us learn similarly.
Dr. MacArthur really hit home with this series of which I will forever be grateful. Bless you, Dr. MacArthur. I am so thankful for your service.
Great Sermon! I was there on the Sunday night when Pastor John preached this. It gave me chills then and it gives me chills again re listening to it. Every Christian should hear this sermon. The Day is fast approaching when REAL persecution in this Country is coming. This message prepares us, strengthens us, and reminds us to depend on no one but Christ when it comes. Let us ALL stand boldly for the Truth of Gods Word.
