Great Sermon! Fantastic exposition by Dr. Beeke of an oft overlooked passage - Luke 1:43,44. Great Advent message delivered with excitement. Dr. Beeke takes the listener back to the thoughts and emotions and declarations of the mother of John the Baptizer. If your church does not celebrate/remember Advent , then treat yourself to this sermon.
Great Sermon! Bro. Joel, what a truly beautiful tribute to your precious mother. Your expounding on these five virtues in her that so affected you and molded who you are today is such an inspiration to me. Tho she is in the uninterrupted presence of Christ, she lives o thru you on the earth through your sermons and how you handle God's Holy Word, the compassion that flows from you to God's people. How God used your parents in molding a man of God to be used in His purposes of glorifying His beloved Son.
Great Sermon! I have to agree with all of this. I have seen a decline of our culture for years. God removed me out of my safe place and brought me out here. With that move I have seen a corrupted society of people who I didn't know existed. It has sent a shock through me.
Great Sermon! This was so tender and I was really moved by it. I wish iher had heard it years back when I found myself a working single mom to have gleaned some of the wisdom from your dad and your upbringing. Looking forward to the sharing of your mom tho I've heard you speak right after her homegoing and was wishing then that I had had the opportunity to have met her. One more thing, I'm not surprised at your dad saying the third thing was his hearing your sermons as I can relate to that in how often they go deep into my soul.
Great Sermon! Dr. Beeke,
This sermon proved a blessed preparation for the Lord's Day tomorrow. I was both comforted and encouraged, yet I was also challenged to pray more fervently. Thank you. Press on!
Great Sermon! Thank you soo much Mr Beeke for proclaiming the truth of Christ! He has really used you to speak to me in rebuke and love. Really challenged me about the application of the story about the old lady whose house was broken into. "You've got no business in my heart, sin. Get out!"
About William Ames Response to Don: Dr. Beeke is a very busy man so I don't think he would mind me weighing in on your question about William Ames. Dr.Beeke is about to release a new book that is a compendium of Puritan works gathered together as a systematic theology. The book link is here. http://www.heritagebooks.org/a-puritan-theology-doctrine-for-life-pre-order/ William Ames is not well known for one reason, a lot of what he wrote was still in Latin. But my understanding is that one of his Latin works was translated and quoted from in this new work when dealing with the subject of the Puritan and that which precedes conversion. I have yet to see this new book, but have perused the table of contents and amazed Dr. Beeke finds the time to write so prolifically, head a seminary, and preach from place to place. On the subject of mortification, I hope to narrate as many unique Puritans on this subject as I can find. So far I have done John Flavel, John Owen, Thomas Manton, Stephen Charnock and I can't remember if there were others
