Great Sermon! Thanks Dr Barrett, this sermon helps. I previously had listened to Mr. Marc Monte's take and yours is more helpful. I think an exegetical dialogue over questioned verses would help, like Luke 9. Thanks again for your teaching.
AMAZING Sermon! I'm convinced that the Lord led me to this pastor at a crucial time. It was perfectly tailored to what I needed to hear. Through several of his messages, Pastor Mercer has been the Lord's appointed messenger to reach me and remind me that He has not forgotten me, nor will He fail me even though things look very hopeless.
If you are facing a similar outlook, take heart. Don't neglect this message. I also hope that listeners won't overlook two of his other complementary messages that complement this sermon: "Trusting in the Midst of Darkness" and "God's Purpose for His People" (oh and also "Take it to the Lord in Prayer")
In trying to express my gratitude, Philemon 1:7 came to mind (forgive me for the personalized paraphrased version)-- "I thank God for you... for I have derived much joy and comfort (and also hopeful encouragement) from your messages. My heart has been refreshed through you." God bless you, Reverend Mercer as you continue to preach the Word and serve Him.
Great Sermon! Wow! From the time I was regenerated and later taken out of the Catholic Church, my prayer was always, "Lord, don't let me be deceived. How will I know I'm being deceived if I am deceived." I see He has heard and answered my prayer and had not ever been presented with this theory on the cross and fallen sway to it as a young believer. I am staggered at the error.
Great Sermon! I must ditto the comment by Florin on the law of God. An excellent and clear presentation with simplicity of what the law of God intended to be to the people of Israel, and also excellent point how they were redeemed prior to receiving the written law. This no 3 is great.
