Sermon for HIS sheep to fill the hungry. Thanks be to God to lay on the hearts of HIS called Preachers to Preach Christ and HIM Crucified. Giving a New heart to long for The WORD of LIFE. To give a longing to here The TRUTH which is Christ Alone. A sinner Saved by Grace
Great Sermon! I also took this unpopular stance a long time ago----Christ did not die for Judas, Christ did not die for Hitler, and Christ did not die for millions of others who have rejected. Just as he did at the Mount--he left hundreds there because all they wanted was healing and power, everything the Jesus could offer---but they did not want Jesus!
Great Sermon! I truly believe a person is the most lost just before he saves him. At this point, he is completely emptied and a corpse, now Christ can fill him with new wine and a new spirit and resurrect him to life as Lazarus in John 11:25
Faithfulness. The preaching the true Word of God and the God of the Bible will always offend people. We must take care that people should not be offended by us, but by the faithful preaching of the Word of God.
True repentance. True repentance means taking actions and it is immediate. The alternative for repentance is to die in your sin and to go to hell. Very clear preaching on repentance in this series.
What to preach? We must not tell to sinners that God put His love on them or that Christ died for them. This is to give assurance of salvation to unrepented sinners. We must preach that they are sinners and that they must repent, that Christ is a perfect Savior for all who trust in Him.
Repentance. Repentance means taking out the sin in your life and submitting to God's commandments. Repentance is a costly thing. For John, it cost his head to preach God's will. In many churches today repentance is not preached, so many are unconverted in those churches.
Repentance. Preaching salvation in Christ without repentance means preaching half of the Gospel. Because of this kind of preaching churches are full with unconverted people. We must preach repentance as John did it.
Sovereignty. Sovereignty and initiative of God in salvation. The mission of evangelism is given by God not to the pastor only, but to His church. Three aspects of evangelism: awaken, exhort and comfort.
Restraining sin. Man is totally depraved because of sin, but this does not speak about the degree of depravity, but about the extension of it. The whole man is affected by sin. God is restraining sin in mankind. The message presents 5 methods by which God restrains sin. Excellent study.
