Sobering! Vital messsage! After listening to this message for the first time, I was convicted, encouraged, and ashamed of my fruitlessness. Although Dr. Havner has gone on to be with our Lord, his messages are very "fresh" and much needed for today. This message is a "keeper".
Great Sermon! Beautiful words, uplifting and encouraging.
The Holy Spirit within, does indeed bring comfort to us, in the midst of the agonies and groanings of our souls, amen!
Blessings to all, whose comfort is sought and found in our Lord and our God alone.
Please listen If you are living in sin or if there is something keeping you from closing with God and repenting of sin and putting your faith in Christ, you owe it to your soul to lsten to this sermon. I was trembling in fear and praying that God would have mercy on my soul.
A Historic Message! This is one of the first messages on the sovereignty of God that I ever heard. It was preached in one of the early "Sovereign Grace" Bible Conferences in Ashland, Ky. I obtained this message on a 7-inch reel tape from the late Brother I. C. Herendeen of BIBLE TRUTH DEPOT, Swengel PA. in the 1950s. I.C.H. was publisher and editor of ARTHUR PINK'S WORKS during the early and middle 20th Century when Pink and the experimental doctrines of Calvinism were virtually unknown! Brother Herendeen greatly encouraged Rolfe Barnard, Henry Mahan, B. B. Caldwell, E. W. Johnson, A. D. Muse, Ferrell Griswold, George Fletcher and others in the initiating of Conferences and meetings emphasizing the Calvinistic truth.
While the audio quality is not as good as we would like, you can hear this historic message without any great difficulty.
LISTEN & RECOMMEND this Mp3 download to all your friends who need this great truth and who will appreciate hearing a pioneer Baptist Calvinist! W.W.F.
A Must Hear Sermon!!! Brother Rolfe preachers a sermon full of the wisdom that only comes from an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Please listen to this wonderful sermon and see if you are building your life and desires on the cross of Calvary. This sermon reminded me of the lines from the hymn 'when I survey the wondrous cross, on which the Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss and pour contempt on all my pride'. Praise God that he chose to preserve this wondeful sermon.
Great Sermon! In this Sermon, he has spoken truths I heard in my childhood, Will God punish sin? yes He must and will punish sin or God is not God,but to feel this, then one cannot die, for dying is meeting God who is a consuming fire, only His free sovereign and electing grace will save a poor wretch, may God bless his word to some poor soul who struggles in this dark world.
A Must Hear Sermon!!!! The days we are living in there is a flood of anti-christ spirit, filling every hole and crevice of this vile world system; that dominates religious and secular life. Men will be lovers of self, lovers of money and isolated from the kingdom, message and demands of Christ Jesus.
For the eternal blessing of your soul please take a few minutes to listen to this Holy Spirit filled sermon, which although nearly 40 years old is still as fresh and vibrant today, as the day it was preached. I hope the elect are blessed and encouraged by this message and proclaim the unversal gospel in these dark days.
Wonderful sermon The fig tree is getting more mature by the day. This is a tremendous sermon on the last days, how many righteous are left to be a witness for the truths of the living God. If you have a concern for your souls eternal destiny please listen to this sermon and may Holy Spirit open your ears and heart to hear this inspired word.
Must Hear! As with all of Rolfe Barnard's sermons,
this one especially magnifies the Grace
of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is a very convicting sermon in that
it states the duty and burden of a
Christian spreading the Gospel.
I thank God for His Sovereign Mercy.
I thank God that He gave life to this
dead sinner. Please listen!!
You've likely never heard anything like this! This sermon will put the fear of The Lord in you. In this day of humanism, seeker friendly churches, apostate protestantism and a constant bombardment of "God loves you just the way you are" this message is a breath of the fresh air of God's truth. That every mouth may be stopped and that the flesh be killed was the mission of Rolfe Barnard. If you feel at ease living in sin, you owe it to your soul to listen to this sermon!!
Gut wrenching sermon As the dear brother below said, this is a soul searching, gut wrenching sermon. I wept uncontrollably. I would most highly recommend this, and every other sermon by brother Barnard. To say that God created him unique is to understate the point.
Great Sermon! Excellent sermon with so much wisdom
preached by Brother Barnard who has
now been with the Lord for almost forty
years. Oh, that we had more like him
today! So much truth is taught; we
cannot discuss the deep truths of the
Word of God with hardly anyone. Thank
God that He has revealed these precious
truths to me. God help me that I will
not cast the pearls before the swine.
Thank God for introducing this precious
man to me through Brother Henry Mahan.
