Great Sermon! A wonderful sermon eloquently detailing the virtues the apostle says are to be added to our faith.
It was illuminating to hear the distinction made between love for the those in Christ and love for non-believers.
A must listen, and listen again!
Thank you! Thank you all for these wonderful sermons. What a blessing Brother Masters has been to my life. I have been encouraged and strengthened to look diligently to the things pertaining to godliness. The LORD bless and keep you!
THE WORLDLY CHURCH Here it is!! -- revealed by the August 2013 Monthly Bulletin found on the website of Thomas Road Baptist Church (Lynchburg, VA). It reads "FATHERS BRING YOUR KIDS TO THE BALL PARK -- ON SUNDAY, August 11th, we will be leaving at 11:00 a.m. and taking a bus from the Thomas Road parking lot to see The Washington Nationals play the Philadelphia Phillies. The cost will be $40 per person. This price will include a spot on the bus, lunch for the trip and a ticket to the game." This Sabbath desecrating church is a well-known Southern Baptist church (estab. by Jerry Falwell, Sr.) that boast of a membership of over 24,000. Huge in number because it caters to the flesh. And, the same holds true for Liberty University (enrollment of over 100,000 students, with reported net assets of over 1 billion dollars) founded by Falwell and Elmer Towns. Go to YouTube.com and type in Liberty University Anthem and view what the school is broadcasting to entice students to enroll. This church and school serves as a great example of what Scripture tells us will come forth in the ‚Äúend time.‚ÄĚ God has kept you, Pastor Masters, and your ministry on the narrow path and off the broad road that leads to destruction. As long as you have breath, continue to contend for the faith.
The Largest Kingdom The Kingdom of God is the largest kingdom.
The Kingdom of God has been represented on earth since the beginning of time. The Kingdom of God has drawn in seekers after God and converts throughout the world from every nation across the generations. Earthly empires rise and fall. They last for a season. They may be mighty empires but they only had in them the people that were alive for a period of existence. The Kingdom of God may seem to be only a small minority of people. But when you add them all up across the decades and generations and centuries, in total it will turn out to be the biggest kingdom and the biggest empire in the world. It is certainly the most powerful because it conquers hearts. The Kingdom of God is a conquest in hearts. It is a kingdom of reconciliation with God and it's so powerful. Much greater is the work to turn hearts and to change people than to humble and subdue people with arms and weapons. The Kingdom of God is the largest and mightiest of kingdoms. It is an invisible kingdom because it is a spiritual kingdom. God has his own subjects but it's not everyone.
Powerful illustrations of death explained Dr Masters vividly explains the inevitability of the King of Terrors, the mystery unlocked by excellent biblical exegesis. Amazing illustrations of its power and potential suddenness and how it may be conquered through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Superb Graphic Illustrations Wonderful graphic illustrations of the biblical text that the more individualistic and different people think they are, the more they are actually enslaved to sin and conformed to the image of this world. Dr Masters explains this clearly and also God's remedy for how we can be set at true liberty.
Awesome message! Marvellously illustrative of the text. These images show the reality of life,
sin and it's consequences, and God's
great way of salvation through Christ, whereby life can be lived in all its fulness.
Dr Masters draws out the powerful
arguements about the brevity of life
so beautifully which are contained
in this wonderful verse, and coupled with
the visuals; this makes for a compelling
Great Sermon! Thank you Dr. Masters - Oh how our souls need sermons that are right to the point.
How much can be said...with so few words!!
I emailed this to all 4 of my children. May the LORD use this to draw them to himself!
Keep it coming ... Here it's Dr. Masters with his God-given distinctive way to convey a message in a clear, strong yet kind manner. I personally would like to see more of these being produced and published in the future (and even translated into other languages). Thank you.
A Powerful illustration A powerful tract that is not only received through the 'ear-gate' but the 'eye-gate' as well. This video must be broadcast to the youth of today. In an age where society is stimulated through the television screen and other
visual imagery this sermon to the eyes demands a response..it cannot be ignored.
Great Sermon! This is a very good Tool to reach a generation that is very much into the visual rather than reading or just listening... I would just add the the scripture text need to be a bit more obvious or larger font..
A great tool for personal witness A short video full of biblical truth about this specific topic which not many people want to think of. In fact, is a taboo topic for many. Sooner or later, we will come to that point and the question is: For whom have we lived? For Christ or for the world?
USING TECHNOLOGY FOR GOOD !! A brief and to the point video. May it please God to bring many viewers to it and use it as a mighty channel of blessing. Sin is the cause of death--"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). I am so thankful for "the gift" (salvation through Jesus Christ) that God gave to me when I called out to Him in despair at age 50. That calling out to Him was birthed in me (did not know then, but know now) by The Holy Spirit. I am now 68 years of age and I do not fear death because I have been made a NEW CREATURE in Christ. Sin no longer has reigning power over me. And, the wrath of God is no longer upon me because Jesus Christ purchased my pardon for me by dying at Calvary for my sins. The wages for my sin fell on Him. He bore my punishment and death no longer is a stalker of me that steals my peace and joy. Jesus is REAL. Jesus does SAVE. Call on Him TODAY.
Great Sermon! Great message and video. Such a welcome addition to SermonAudio and the internet generally as so many evangelistic videos are 'fluffy' and light weight or long and cold. Thank you Dr Masters. It's been added to our website already!
AN APPOINTED WATCHMAN !! I so very much appreciate that Pastor Masters has an understanding of Bible prophecy. He does NOT lead his hearers down the same road as those (Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, Hal Lindsey, etc.) who have taken God's Word and turned it into apocalyptic fictional novels and movies. They have usurped God's divine authority and holy wisdom with their own blasphemous ideas and concepts, using their human imaginations to put a 'Hollywood' spin on The Holy Writ. And, the people love to have it so! Apostasy in the Church is spreading by leaps and bounds. Like with Jeremiah, God has given unto Pastor Masters a warning ministry -- "RETURN TO THE OLD PATHS!!" Jeremiah 6:16. But, as with Jeremiah, the warning is proving to be not only unwelcome, but it is being rejected by the people. Even so, Pastor Masters, I encourage you to continue to teach the difference between the holy and the profane so that the blood of the wicked will not be "required at thine hand" Ezekiel 33:7-8.
A GOOD THING TO DO !! I am finding, Pastor Masters, your suggestion to keep notes in the back of my Bible to be a very helpful thing to me. As I study the scriptures and I read a PROMISE of God, I write it down (along with where I found it in God's Word). I'm loving having this "promise" reference sheet that I am compiling. Today, I was studying Luke 19 and made note of God's promise concerning profitable and unprofitable servants. What a source of encouragement to know that God has promised to INCREASE those who have been good stewards of the abilities and resources which He has given to them for the advancement of His Kingdom on earth. Like any good businessman, God expects a profit, and He holds us accountable for what we have done with what He has entrusted to us.
