Great Sermon! I thank God for the way he blessed you with the wisdom to preach a sermon such as this; I thank you for letting Him use you the way you did. God bless you. I love and appreciate that sermon. Hopefully I'll get others to listen to it. Much love from me to you.
Great Sermon! I watched a documentary a few years ago that used the information about the overlap of rulers at the time (Luke 2 was very specific) and the particular constellations seen by astronomers or magi at that time to determine Jesus' birthdate. They were able to use the Bible and science to pinpoint Jesus' birth to April 7, 6 B.C. I found it both fascinating and exciting.
Interesting Sermon! Christian in Pilgrim's Progress journied to the Celestial City and he learned and obeyed enroute. He did not dally or prevaricate. He journied as the Lord called and led him often with minimum company and encouragement.
I don't understand your asking Christians about their deposits? The metaphor seems to suggest that they are free to deposit or Not deposit. To Not deposit is Not do what he is asking you to do. -- I don't believe we have that privilege . If we do such things we damage our assurance and that is not the mark of a Believer. We either want to stay on the path he has charted for us or we don't. If he allows us to go off for a time,(sin)we are never comfortable and we long to be back on the correct path.
There are times in my life I have pushed a broom and other times I have been a public figure watched by everyone for my testimony.
I am 64. I am constantly amazed at how my calling varies as the road to the Celestial City unwinds before me. There have been dark times which were hard to bear and happy times which were easy . Conciously walking in the spirit is the Only savings option I have identified.
Great Sermon! For those of us who are on the sidelines, healing, there is no sweeter topic than how own Savior lived in dependency upon GOD. There is no greater need than to hear about Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Thank you, for preaching the three-fold Deity and the ministry of our Prophet, Priest and King.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor John, Thank you for yoru sermon. I like the title and the presentation. I appreciate the way you ended the sermon with the qualities of the Word of God. God bless you, your family and ministry,
In Christ alone
"David recovered all." Well, the text you used WAS incredibly encouraging. I did appreciate the warm up and I am very sorry I wasn't polite in my last comment. I'll try watching the video version or looking at the attached PDF if need be.
This sermon was cut short!! Great walk through 2 Sam. 18-30 and through some Psalms but then POOF no more sermon. I'm there, Brother... here, in Ziklag more ways than you could ever know and then your sermon cuts off. No application. No rescue. What's the point? Poof. Yes. Yes. I know: "Go strengthen yourself in the Lord, Sister." v. 6. Uh-huh. Fine. Your sermon had potential, just like the LAME-o-churches here in China, I mean SW Michigan. Fix it.
Great Sermon! It is very refreshing to hear a pastor express his confidence in the clear teaching of a six-solar day creation account. I have been speaking on this subject for almost 25 years (and am now in fulltime ministry with the Creation Education Center - www.CECwisc.com). Unfortunately, this type of message is being avoided like the plague in most churches today, doing great disservice to the authority of God's Word. Thank you for taking a stand! Keep up the good work.
