They say, 'A man is as good as his word...' How great then, is our God! Oh, the sweet jewels that flow from His lips, bestowing a constant stream of riches to His poor and needy children. Pastor Angus, we have followed along with you through the Song of Solomon and have received of these great riches: Christ, the Word. Thank you for your labors in Him and we are praying for you and all our dear family in Australia. "LORD, bring a great revival of the preaching and the hearing of Thy Word. Amen."
There IS but one Gospel! Thank you Lord, not only that you allowed me to hear it with my ears, but that you wrote it on my heart.
God has never left himself without a witness, and in this age there are so few but there are 'just enough'! All thanks to God for raising up men like Bro. Don.
Great Sermon! Thank you, Pastor Don for this message from God. I never knew just how much God loves His people until I heard the Gospel of God's Sovereign Free gift of salvation. This message changed my thinking of what a righteous sinner is. I'm eternally grateful. GOD alone be glorified!
Thank you. And I think God for His word preached Thank you for the truth you preach. I benefit from your sermons, as well as the others from faithful preachers.
This sermon was so helpful to me today!
A Gospel Witness in the UK! Thank you again, Allan, for this comforting message. Everything you have said rings true in our hearts and has encouraged us so much. The figure you mentioned of the dog lying in the manger, keeping the hungry cattle from feeding, reminded me of a Bible study we had to endure as members of a "reformed" church many years ago. One of the elders began the study with a question he thought would engage us for at least an hour. He said, "Who can give us an example of something Jesus did to prove His faithfulness?" After a brief silence, a wise old woman in the back row said, "Let's save some time and mention the things He did that would prove His unfaithfulness." Needless to say, the elder was unsettled at having been cut to the quick in such a manner! I was a new believer then, and the LORD brought that incident to our remembrance many times, helping us to detect and eschew dogs as He was leading us, again and again, to His true shepherds, men who know and love the Gospel of His Sovereign Grace. O! May He grow and grow that Gospel to feed His hungry people! God bless you all. Thank you again for your labors in the LORD. We are praying for you all. And by the way, that faithful woman, Ruth Jarvis of Columbus, Ohio, is with the LORD Jesus in heaven now - because He is Faithful.
Truely a message of hope Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift. The truth spoken through Angus has blessed us and given us a reminder of the hope that is within us. May god give us the grade to hold onto these words and look to Him.
Praise God for this message! Brother Allan, We have been so deeply touched by this message from our LORD. You have helped us to see again, with more clarity than is sometimes afforded us, that we live in the day of the greater glory of the Second Temple, which is our LORD Jesus Christ.The Ark, the Mercy Seat, the Blood of the Sacrificial Lamb sprinkled for the sin of the people, the Manna, the rod that budded. Oh what glory to meditate on all these signs as shadows of our great God and King, Jesus Christ the LORD! We pray for you, the people you minister there in your small village and we pray that the Gospel you preach will be heard throughout the whole world, running by the Spirit of God, as Elijiah ran before Ahab to Jezreel. 1 Kings 18:46
Great Sermon! As with so many of Don Fortners' sermons this is not only well worth listening to, but listening to again so you really get the crucial points.
This portion of scripture can be read in such a way that you become self righteous and think you will just "step into heaven". Or bring you to dispair in knowing that your post conversion love and obediance is inadequate and riddled with corruption. listen to this to see it straight.!
Great Sermon! Blessed assurance because it's been done and secured on the behalf of God's children from eternity! Thank you triune God for the salvation in Christ alone. If you find yourself believing and loving the Gospel, you have no one to thank but God alone. Man cannot take credit for it. God's people will not take credit for it. Soil Deo Gloria.
It is the Gospel! Wow! That is the gospel in John Chapter 6! Praise God that the preaching of Ptr. Don reaches us here, this is a great encouragement to Christians and the few preachers here who continue to press on spreading the glorious truths of the sovereignty of God and the dortrines of grace! God bless your ministry and to God be the glory!
Glory! Brother Don, I couldn't do the dishes, couldn't sweep the floor. Just had to sit and listen. Oh! Where would I be without Him? Praise His Holy Name forever and ever!
Thank you so much. Kathleen
Great Sermon! This message helped me to understand God's gift of faith in Christ. God alone gets the glory in man's salvation. What a tremendous blessing to be able to hear the clear preaching of the Gospel online. Thank you.
