Excellent presentation This is an excellent video presentation. The pictures shown are very helpful and revealing. That's the clearest and most forward teaching on Revelation 17 I have heard and seen so far. I hope Brother Cloud will put more of his lectures into video format on this website.
Great Sermon! I appreciate this man of God. He has a heart for the truth. So few today do. And he is not afraid to name names. Praise God for men like Dr. Cloud. I wish there were more current sermons as well. He brings out the simplicity of the Gospel Truth. Understanding it in context, along with study and prayer, is a necessity.
Warnings I agree with some things and completely disagree with others. I would contend that the greatest thing lacking in the lives of God's people in the church today is having an accurate view of God. When is the last time you stepped out on a Sunday morning and were in AWE of Christ. We don't just worship Sunday. Worship begins at home Monday morning and it culminates on Sunday. It is God we worship and we must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (John 15). We are all over the later but to the expense of the former? Please Lord let it no be so. You can argue all you want about style, but the real question is are we worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth. Fundamentally, whether a song is a chorus, a hymn, or a new song (God loves that...I think that is in the Bible somewhere) it has to be theologically sound otherwise get rid of it. Secondly, is it horizontal or vertical. What I mean by that is do the Words ascribe worth to God (Real Worship) or is it simply worshipful (less about Him more about me). I am bigtime into Words that ascribe Worth to God. Lastly, does the style compete with the content. That would be bad too! That is it. Every Sunday my heart is to encounter the living Christ & not man. Isaiah 66:2 humble, contrite spirits, and trembling at His Word draws Him
King James Version - Sermon I encourage you to visit this site and review some of the statements made in your sermon. The Geneva Bible holds the honor of being the first Bible taken to America, and the Bible of the Puritans and Pilgrims. It is truly the â€śBible of the Protestant Reformation.â€ť. Also the Geneva Bible and the earliest King James Bible included the 14 books of "The Apocrypha" which I assume you do not endorse.
Great Sermon! Thank you Brother Cloud for contending for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints! I agree 100% in that we must obey the Word of God and make it our only standard in faith and practice. So sad that many today let the world determine what obedience to God truly is! Way of Life Literature has been a blessing for my wife and I and we really enjoy your Friday Church News! God bless you Brother!
Great Sermon! I grew up with Rock and Roll. It was, the and still is at times, very hard to steer clear of. It pervades all we do. Tv, sporting events, doctors office, restarants and now church. Cleaning up Baal does not make it an item to worship with.
My mother hated rock and still does , though her stance, because of rock's pervasiveness, has mellowed as has most of societies. But because we have become accostommed to this music , does not make it ok. I remembeer my mother saying that the music made her nervous. She said she felt like it was trying to invade her self control.. Just as one imbibes much liquor because they enjoy the effect , so it is with music. We listen to it because we like the "intoxication", though it is more subtle than drink. But is it? Just as love of intoxication usually sneaks up on you, so does the beat of music.
I used to distain hip- hop, but once I became accustommed to it , I actually started to like it.Now that I have given all this over to the Lord, it has actually become easier to stay away. Not easy , grant you , but easier.
If we are in any doubt after listening to this , then just maybe , we should avoid it to be on the safe side.Isn't our God worth the risk?
Great Sermon! Probably the best Fundamentalist preacher in the world! Everybody should give a listen! Thank you Brother Cloud for such great sermons. The Lord has really used your sermons to help our family. We also love "O, Timothy" magazine and will be getting a gift subscription to our pastor friend in Oklahoma.
p.s. I still think our mountains in Pa. are prettier than yours. :)
Great Sermon! Sometimes it is hard to speak the truth but it had to be spoken for our benefit. Too long have the watered down message of compromise been allowed in our pulpits. Away with letting the world dictate how we sing and live. In Christ alone should we live and move and have our being!
Great Sermon! I finished the last three parts of your church history series. Wow! I learned so much. Thank you for putting these series together and sharing with us. What great testimonies these people are for holding firm to their beliefs under such horrid persecution and death. It sure makes me appreciate what we have today as far as religious freedom. God bless.
WOW!!!! This was an excellent message on church history as far as how catholocism was started. It makes me cringe now when I think of all the practices they do in the name of the Lord. This is just excellent in bringing to life the apostacy behind the RCC. I am looking forward to hearing your other parts on church history. Great job and God bless you.
Great Sermon! WE know that God saves men once and for all not to lose men after they are saved..God is big enough to save a man he is Big enough to keep a man saved.. he is a God that chasties those the loves so they might be partakers of his glory...He saves men to keep them saved not to lose them .. there is no way that a person that has got saved can become unsaved.. God dont lose those who he has saved ... the word saved means just this saved kept, great sermon thanks kentucky
Great Sermon! My dear staff,
Greetings in the Savior name of Lod Jesus.I pleased much when i searched your anoited site through search.I much much blessed through it only reading.God bless you for this great task.How can use this site?.
Yours in Christ,
Thanks for taking a stand... I've listened to most of the 'WOW' CD's available in the 'worship' category, and after doing so I have to wonder if many of the songwriters have ever even read the Scriptures.
Many of the songs either condone living after the manner of this depraved world(and I get plenty of that wicked exposure as it is, without needing so-called 'believers' exposing me to even more of the same)...or...have an 'emotional' basis for approaching God in the lyrics...or, in not a few instances, go so far as making Almighty Jesus into an object of 'romantic affections' (with a fair number of the songwriters being male!!!).
Is 'perverse' too strong a word here?
The bible shows us that our worship must come on the basis of two principles...love and truth...and biblical love (as defined in 1 Cor 13) has zero emotion to it..and Jesus Himself said that if we continue in His word....then we will know the truth, and it is the truth that will make us free...neither sentiment, nor affection, nor passion, nor a 'feeling' or 'emotion' of any kind will save us; only the truth by the love of God.
Thank you sir, for your strong stand here. Jesus knows the tide is against those who are willing to do what you do in your preaching, and He will bring your reward in due time. Gods peace in Him.
Needed information! The Reformation was a time for great revival yes but unfortunately some protestants were guilty of persecuting the Baptists because the Baptists rejected the compromises made by the Reformers. The Reformers repeated some of the errors of Rome such as unscriptural infant baptism and the union of Church and State which ultimately brings corruption to both entities. Let us not forget that the Union of Church and State under Constantine was the beginning of a downhill spiral for the professing Church and led to popery. People should listen to this message to get a better view of Church history.
Needed information! One of the reasons why churches have become weak is ignorance of Church history. If more Christians would read great history books such as John Dowling's "History of Romanism" and J.A. Wylie's "History of Protestantism", the ecumenical movement would fall flat on its face. The Waldenses were the real pre-Reformation Biblical Christians and they had nothing to do with the Romish Babylonian Church of Antichrist. Being holy servants of God, they were targets of the wrath of the evil, impious Roman Catholic Harlot during the Middle Ages. I hope more Christians hear such messages.
Timely message! Believers need to be warned about all of the garbage (i.e. Rick Warren) that one can now find in a Christian bookstore. Praise the Lord that He has raised up servants to warn God's true believers!
Can't Clean Music Up Enough I had this idea a few years back to take used baby diapers, composed of paper and plastic, and recycle them into paper and plastic dinnerware. Of course, they would be completely cleaned and sterilized -- shredded, bleached, melted down. It would be extremely environmentally friendly, too. But I would not sell a package...not even one to Al Gore. Why? Because the use of the plastic and paper in diapers have made the substance unsuitable for dinnerware. Much the same, the use of some musical beats and tempos within our culture to promote sin makes those beats and tempos unsuitable for praise and worship. You just can't clean rock 'n roll up enough to make it good enough for God.
