Great Sermon! thank you sir for your ministry, and being so faithful , which at times may not be easy. I enjoy the great command of the English language you have, it is so amazing. Most of all I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for bringing you into my life down through the years. Eternity will show the tremendous help you gave along with great transparency. Love in Christ, Ron
Thank you so much, Dear Angus, Your message touched my heart with both bitter and sweet, as I have so often thought about all the many Elimelechs the LORD used to bring me safely home to the House of Bread. Praise His Name, there were many Naomis, too. You made me think that we Ruths must be on guard to resist Elimelech in our own soul, being so often tempted to go along with fleshly logic in a trial. I trust Him to make me into a Naomi then, that I might bring another Moabitess with me back to Israel, where Boaz is waiting! We love you all and long to see you someday soon. We follow along with every sermon, but we miss hearing the music. Love in Christ, Kathleen
Great Sermon! Thank you again for teaching the true with clarity about who are the children of God that are scattered through out the world.
Because there have been false teaching that the so call Jews are the actual children of God, which is false because how can black Abraham have white children?
Another theory is that the blacks who went out from Africa through slavery are claiming to be the children of Jacob, because they fit the scriptures and although this claim seem more plausible.
Still, it is not correct teaching about according to the scriptures, who God is referring as the sons (daughters). Because father Abraham was still gentile when the gospel was preached as you clearly taught in the scriptures. thank you very much. Many people are trying everything to enter into the kingdom but do not want to go through The Christ who is the door.
A Vital, Sobering Message !!! Brother Fortner,
I praise our LORD, for inspiring you to deliver such a vital message!!! This is a message I do hope is preached at my funeral!!! CHRIST our Redeemer must ALWAYS be lifted up!!And we must ALWAYS be decreased!! To the natural man, who seeks to hear the adulation and the praise of men, this message will be highly offensive, but to those in CHRIST, it is so very sweet!!! It is my hope that our LORD has and will continued to uphold you, and all those who uncompromisingly declare the gospel of GOD'S Dear SON!!!!!
20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
