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.
thank you! Praise God for this man who doesn't fear man. He tells it like it is, and if most preachers will actually preach this way, we won't have mega churches, and churches in every town and every city and this country.
thank you!!! This is exactly what I needed to hear. I went to church for many years, was baptized, but had never known what sin is and never knew what and who I truly am, a wretch and filthy scrap of humanity apart from the grace of God in Christ. I didn't know because I was never told what sin is but was reduced to actual external acts of immorality.
Great Sermon! I never thought I was an idolater while attending and a member of a Baptist church. I never knew God and true worship. I sincerely believe I was saved. How sincerely wrong was I!
Thank you for these sermons by pastors who proclaim and preach God's Truth. I was a lost sheep in a Baptist church, but God will make sure that His sheep will hear His truth. Thank God for His grace, mercy and truth!
Great Sermon! People would rather use church for whatever need they have other than the Gospel. Youth group, singles group, Senior's group, single's group, men's ministry, women's ministry....and on the list goes! While the Gospel is never preached, but free-will and decisions by praying a prayer after the false preacher encouraged them to do so by putting their faith in Christ without teaching sinners about Original sin and total depravity,but hey, they've made decisions to follow Christ- a Christ they don't know. So, we have millions of people that go to church, if we can call it church, who have no knowledge of themselves and no knowledge of the triune God.
Great Sermon! I really appreciate this Plain, straightforward presentation of the Gospel. As I listened, thoughts came to how the first half of my life as blind, deaf, unregenerate, dead, Sunday after Sunday I would hear the Gospel read by the priest in that portion of the mass and it meant nothing. Just dead words. And here today I can't hear the Gospel enough nor get enough of His Word. Oh amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see. Al Glory to God in the highest in Christ Jesus.
Great Sermon! Dear Ian, You should remember us. We have just listened to your sermon "Not of The World" and I hasten to thank you for such a Spirit-filled message from your lips. In all my health struggles and great weakness, the Lord has lifted me up to the heights of His Love and so blessed us. Thank you for being His faithful servant and for such a clear message from the Lord Himself.
May He strengthen you for the task He has given you to do. I am proposing to copy the message and send it out to our unsaved family. With Love in Christ from Rose & George Be encouraged.
Great Sermon! I learned how to spot the many false gospel preachers, and there are so many of them in this country and all over the world.... especially amongst conservative churches! Sad and scary that countless souls are deceived by such men.
