Eternity! Oh, what a Word! Thank you, Allen, so much. I often think about the terrors of hell - eternal burning, complete isolation from God, hopeless darkness and confusion forever - and then, I try to fathom that my Saviour ENDURED all that...for me! Who is sufficient for these things? Praise His Name forever more!
LISTEN! My husband & I have heard this sermon, I bet, about 20x between the 2 of us . . . absolutely wonderful truths that we have never heard before. Most churches teach to follow your conscience. This sermon teaches the truth about what scripture actually says.
One King Over All Thank God for this pastor who presented truth without mixture or confusion. It is a clear and precise message that teaches the new creature in such an elementary way that even a child could lay hold to it. There is no "fluff" or striving in the flesh to proclaim God's truth.
Thank God for him.
We woke up this morning saying, 'He is able!' Pastor, Thank you for this sermon and especially for posting it immediately, else we had not known that our LORD was already speaking this message to our hearts at the same time you preached it. We studied 1 Kings 3:5 yesterday "...Ask what I shall give thee", and read the 3 sacred hymn poems Newton had devoted to this verse. In Hymn 32, Newton wrote, "If Solomon for wisdom prayed, the LORD before had made him wise, else he another choice had made, and asked for what the worldings prize. Thus He invites His people still, He first instructs them how to choose, then bids them ask whate'er they will,assured that He will not refuse." And so, our LORD gives us grace to understand that in every circumstance, He proffered the situation and He will bring about the perfect resolution. He is able. May God richly bless you all. He put it in my heart to pray this, and so, He will bring it to pass.
Great Sermon! Dear Allan, I have tried to send a comment from my Samsung tablet but do not think it has reached you, so I want to say what a blessing this sermon has been to me. I am ill in bed so much, but to be able to hear you on my Samsung is great indeed!
I loved this sermon and thank God for you.
Love in Christ, English Rose
Clarity on a much misunderstood subject. There is so much error regarding so-called acceptable christian behaviour and standards, not to mention the gross hypocrisy that surrounds this matter. Pastor Fortner effectively sweeps away falsehood and focuses on the essential work of true faith which is absolute commitment to Christ - most of what religion calls 'godliness' amounts to no more than self-righteousness. Thank you for this message; I commend it to anyone seeking a clearer understanding of the issue of christian behaviour.
Great Sermon! Pastor allan. I am so blessed by your ministry. Thank u for this sermon so very encouraging. I am much confined to bed and home througth chronic ill health of M..E
My husband is my carer and we used to listen to you in your previous church.
I send out daily devotionals of J.c. Philpot. God bless u richly. ER
Indeed an astounding message The virgin birth is an astounding thing as Don speaks here that even the angel in Luke chapter 1 verse 35 says that this holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. What a great message and especially a fitting one for the season
When they tel you, 'Man must do HIS part...' Dear Allan and our friends in the UK, The historical parable of Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and Ishmael is one of the most beautiful proofs that man, "doing HIS part" in anything, but especially in this matter of salvation, brings misery, trouble and finally, damnation. We are following your sermons every day and have received blessings abounding. We pray for a great revival in the preaching and hearing of the Gospel of the Free Sovereign Grace of God in the finished work of Jesus Christ our LORD. Thank you so much and we are praying for you all. (P.S. Laughed at the little comment about The Jeremy Kyle Show. We don't have a TV, but we here in the US are constantly bombarded with the politically-correct mind-control venue of the social engineers. We are very aware of the fact that all mainstream media is poised to destroy the truth of God and the truth of His Christ. Did you know that dentists are one of the chief snitch snares? Many dentists get money to fish for personal info and then report back to the thought police. Maybe you should change dentists and go to one that refuses to play The Jeremy Kyle Show in the patient waiting room. Just a head's up for your benefit.)
wonderful truth!!! When our former pastor @ a "sovereign grace" church would preach this truth, it was wonderful, but then he began adding in the phrase, "but we have to look at the practical side of this teaching, too" (meaning our part), & there went the "wonderful" . . . it was so sad & we had to leave.
