keys and recipies For the humble minded, a sabbath year is in order, to take courage in this late hour; as Paul and company were able to comfort themselves in clear and present distress in Acts, though they should have listened to the (Gospel) message well before:
"And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship."
"Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity."
We better start waving our spritual censers, that the plague not break out in our camps!
Here's real conclusive evidence I can see a possible envelope of time to make use of the worldly gleanings for mankind, but that's about it. The prophet Isaiah did say that the LORD will make a short work. By reason of transgression without proper atonement in Christ, the wrath of the fornication shared among whore daughter congregations and anti-Christian kings, and because of the ultimate mystery mother whore, the war machine does trod down the environment.
"Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out."
"Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces."
".....them which destroy the earth."
The Heart Of Global Warming Exposed... The "Green Issue" is better known as Global Warming in America. Pastor Murray cuts to the heart of this new issue, that global warming has transcended any factual issues on either side and has become a dogma preached by people who want to use fear to get leverage over other people. It's almost a perfect issue for this: the consequences are so dire that we have to pay attention; but they will come at some unspecified time many generations in the future, so the leverage can continue indefinitely. It's hard to get leverage over people after a generation of disaster-duds like Y2K, but somehow they've managed. Their stranglehold on the media is pushing out other, more important problems... such as the gospel. The evidence for global warming is inconclusive at best. The reports always seem to hit the news media during the coldest time of the year when I'm buying sweaters and reading about global warming seminars being cancelled because of ice storms. But the truth of the gospel, that mankind is sinful and needs a savior, is not cyclical and overwhelming evidence for it exists on the pages of history.
What is salvation worth leaving behind? The gate to heaven is wide enough for anyone to enter, but narrow enough that you have to leave behind your own efforts. If you have never come to see yourself as a hopeless sinner who needs a savior, listen to this sermon and ask yourself what you're unwilling to leave behind to get into the gate.
Solid teaching on what faith is ... and is not I recommend this sermon to people who aren't sure what faith is - maybe they've read Kenneth Hagin, or Kenneth Copeland, or some of the other "faith" authors and have gotten confused. A lot of time, "faith" is presented as something man-centered which man uses to manipulate God, and that's not what the Bible teaches. This sermon is a Biblical look at the role of faith in the believer's salvation. It looks at what faith is, and what faith isn't, and shows how important detailed study even of the prepositions of the Bible are (and the need for a literal translation that shows what the original text says as precisely as possible).
Listen if "decided for Jesus" or "accepted Christ" If you have made a "decision for Jesus" or have "accepted Christ" this sermon is worth listening to because it points out the difference between making a profession and being converted. Salvation is not making a decision. So much modern Christianity does not teach the truth about salvation. You may have never heard before, so take time to listen.
Sound Theological Teaching Sound teaching on the topic of the FINISHED work (very clearly stated in the text for the sermon!) of Christ. The riches of this one verse are unpacked carefully in the sermon.
Evolutionists ignor evidence?? Dr. Shaw,
Your colleagues don't necessarily agree with you. Molecular phylogenies don't prove anything about evolution of chimpanzees. (See: "The Unreliability of Hominid Phylogenetic Analysis Challenges The Human Evolutionary Paradigm" By Fuz Rana, Ph.D. at http://www.reasons.org/resources/fff/2000issue03/index.shtml for just ONE article).
While I respect your learned position, believers of the biblical account accept that God created a world with age. Adam was a grown man when he was created, and so was the world around him also grown.
fairy tales ignore evidence The evidence from planet earth is overwhelming that the the account of creation in the bible is false; isotopic half lives alone are proof enough. Molecular phylogenies placing us next to chimps validate classical zoology and further confirm the biblical account tro be a baseless fairy story devoid of evidence; if the bibleis the word of God then proving convinvingly that your God knows nothing about the history of the planet he is alleged to have created.
Good explanation of the subject This is one of the best explanations of the subject of election, and calling, that I've heard. I recommend this sermon to anyone who wants to better understand these important doctrines.
Great (Lost) Sermon! By the way, people who benefit from Pastor Murray's sermons will want to check out Loughbrickland Reformed Presbyterian (David Silversides) where he preached on sanctification - an outstanding and challenging message - but it doesn't show up under Pastor Murray's normal sermons. (The sermon sounds like it was recorded at the bottom of a well, but the content is worth "listening around" the reverb!)
Excellent teaching Highly recommended. A clear, in-depth explanation of the doctrine of justification using Rom 3:24 and the Westminster Confession ch 11 para 1. The sermon explains the reasons for the "not" statements (negatives), and the false doctrines they warn against; and also explains the correct Reformed doctrine. This is a classic sermon to add to your library.
