Interesting Sermon! Very good sermon! However, it's better to be a saved reformed Baptist than a lost Arminian.
As a former deceived Aminian myself, there was a time when I thought I was saved, but for many long years I never even heard of the doctrines of election, a particular atonement, or justification by the imputed righteousness of Christ!
There may be divisions among the reformed people - but that is because they have Life;
where there is Life, there is often strife and discord among the brethern,
but in an Arminian "cemetery" all is "at peace" and they have a "visible unity" only.
Perhaps the unity found in the Arminian camp is because they are all still in a state of spiritual death.
I would rather have Eternal Life, and be standing at the grave sites of the great reformed preachers of the past (like Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Edwards, A. W. Pink, etc)....who, "being dead, yet speaketh" through their books, and now even their audio sermons and lectures...than be a lost soul
who only hears Arminian preachers who are still "in the land of the living" but spiritually dead!
Great Sermon! I thank God for your unabased handling of this text. I taught from this great text a few years ago along similar lines and had a few departures that were as John says in his epistle of those "who were not of us for if they had been of us they would have continued..." Your message confirms the fact that God is raising up a holy church that He will not be ashamed to call His brethren.
Powerful and informational sermon Short but powerful sermon...very informative. I liked the way Pastor Brunson said preached the truth, and how he brought up the many martyrs who were killed because of the Roman Catholic Church.
Great Sermon! Have just listened to this Tsunami sermon - it has moved me to tears, such a powerful message and so necessary today, in this wishy-washy "christianity".
Thank you for giving it straight.
God is a consuming fire and will not overlook sin.
Yours, By His grace, Rose
Great Sermon! Listened 3 times to this message. Sobering truths, and very heartfelt. No we don't hear too much preaching like this anymore, we would prefer to be entertained. God is truly sovereign, He moves according to His own will to accomplish His own purposes and we don't always have to know what those purposes are. It's a wakeup call to both sinner and saint, our lives are not our own, neither is this World. Indeed, at some point we will all have to face our own individual Tsunami's a sobering thought, but harsh reality. Are we prepared?, and have we made preparations to face the one with whom we have to do?. May the Lord continue to bless this wonderful servant.
Great Sermon! Oh that my Church of Christ brothers and sisters and children could hear this poignant message.
I am weary of hearing "God did not cause this. He could have chosen to stop it but He did not. Disasters have happened since the fall."
All things are to God's Glory!
People want to be their own god or create a warm and fuzzy god for themselves.
We are all dead men and women walking until we come to learn the way, the truth, and the life through Christ Jesus.
Answers are everywhere: Psalm 110.6, Jer.6:9-17,
Powerfully convicting sermon This was a powerfully compelling and convicting sermon on both the spiritual and practical levels. God rightfully condemns those who allow totalitarianism to silence the Gospel of Grace.
That's Not All Of Us As a reformed baptist, I regret that there may be some among us who exhibit the behavior and hold to the attitudes as characterized by Mr. Brunson. However many reformed baptists, including myself, do not fall within this strawman stereotype. Please don't dismiss the doctrines (i.e., believer's baptism and TULIP)identifying reformed baptists because of the behavior of some.
Reformed Baptists arenâ€™t like that... Let me first apologize for the Reformed Baptists that have so jaded Pastor Hal; however, the Reformed Baptist I know are nothing like those described here. I consider this preventative medicine.
Blessed sermon I listened this sermon after reading Paul's recommendation (thanks again Paul),and was not disappointed.Thankyou brother Brunson for bringung before us such wonderful practical thoughts regarding the threshing floor,and the temple built upon it,in relation to our own lives. This sermon is suitable for both saints and sinners,and i agree with Paul, it is unique!Did my soul good,and may it please the Lord to use this sermon for the blessing of others too, to the glory of His most holy name.
...gone ! Recently i have gone to a place i did not want to go, in a spiritual sense.
But Christ was with me, and the benefits has, i believe, been that i have decreased a bit more (and need to decrease so much more), and He has increased a lot more in my life than i deserve.Blessed be His most holy name. This sermon will be a blessing to both young and those more mature.It is amazing how the Lord is using ,even less preached upon texts from His word, for the edifying of His church.Thankyou bro'Brunson. Thankyou sermonaudio. But above all, thank thee Lord for thy goodness, and thy grace, in bringing good,sound,faithful ministry, into thy saints lives.To thee be all the glory.
Great Sermon! Profound and powerful. Excellent message! The old testament stories are blended together beautifully with the sound New Testament doctrine of God's Sovereign Grace for us today!
Great Sermon for hard working employees! Are you a hard working employee, doing a mundane job, for little appreciation, and low wages?
Do you have a problem ,mentally ,with your employer beng a wealthy person, who seems to have a nice,easy lifestyle?
Take heart,dear soul, learn from the blessedness of God in His providence providing wealthy men ,like Boaz, to provide work to employees to earn a living, and take heart from Ruth, who worked hard for him in the gleaning she did in the field. Obviously bro Brunson brings out other lovely thoughts from this portion of the Word of God, but it spoke to me personally,of the relationship between the worker and the employer, and was such a blessing to me in this particular context.
Amen and Amen..! Yes, we are passive in our regeneration,
but become active in our conversion...
For many years I was once in the "lion's den of Arminianism"...but good preaching like this has opened my eyes to the truth and set me free!
To prove his point, Pastor Brunson gives an excellent illustration taken from the story of Daniel in the den of lions! Everyone should hear this!
