A must hear message! Thanks for this very powerful and convicting message about spending real time in the Scriptures. So much of life is spent in gathering chaff to our shame. A message that asks the question, "what are you doing with your time"? Thank you brother John!
Great study. A good presentation of what it means to be Reformed, a presentation of the 5 Solas of the Reformation and of the 5 points of Calvinism, followed by a short explanation of what it means Presbyterian church government.
Great zeal for God. Coversion of Latimer compared with that of saul of Tarsus. Both were zealous for their religion before. After conversions, both were zealous for God. There is presented Latimer's view on the Scriptures, preaching, the mass and justification.
Creeds. A confessional church. A plea for confessions. Their role in presenting, proclaiming and defending the teachings of the Bible. It is curious that there can exist preachers who say that we do not need written confessions. They also preach doctrines from the Bible and expect that their church members believe them. So they have a creed! They do not want a written creed because they want the liberty to interpret the Bible how they want. After them, another preacher will interpret it another way! So the church will believe all kinds of things, because they are not united by a biblical and serious creed.
Great Sermon! I recommend this 2003 sermon to anyone who may be currently unemployed in 2011. In the world it is said that losing one's job is near the top of the list for life stressors. In the world it is said to destroy one's self esteem. The saved person needs to view the humiliation as from the Lord and be open to the Lord's correction and redirection of our lives. However if the situation becomes long term and prayers go unanswered a believer can be faced with much depression and discouragement. This sermon powerfully addresses and gives answers for these painful struggles. Lord I pray that in this time of famine of employment that you will comfort and bring hope to your children and provide work where they can be lights in this dark world.
Much Needed Encouragement! In trials and afflictions,.. I have received much worldly "comfort" and well meaning advise that was no help and much of it in direct opposition to the Word of God.. I was saddened by how many professing Christians gave worldly and ungodly advise and suggestions. This sermon gave me encouragement from the pure Word of the Lord to stay the course and not faint,.. to God's glory!.
God's Unmerited Favor ! How came it that I, a sinner, am running the race and winning the crown? The victory is being given to me by ALMIGHTY GRACE! It is as C. H. Spurgeon said in his book entitled Grace and Power (p.359): "Christ Jesus is the only escape for a sinner pursued by the fiery wrath of God, and every believer ought to remember this. Our own works could never shelter us, for they have proved to be only refuges of lies (Isaiah 28:17). Even if they had been a thousand times more and better, they would have been only as the spider's web, too frail to hang eternal interest on. There is only one name, one sacrifice, one blood, by which we may escape. All other attempts at salvation are a grievous failure."
Great Sermon! Thank you Peter for your very clear testimony of the saving power of Christ, It trilled my heart to hear of His dealing with you and how He brought you to that place of Calvery, May all who listen to your story of His salvation be blessed as I was.
