Great Sermon! When a true child of God hears a man preach, he looks for two things. (1) A sermon that is rich in the Word and full of the Spirit! (2) A sermon that gives God all the glory and puts man where He belongs, i.e. in the dust! After hearing Brother Henry Mahan‚Äôs sermons for quite some time now, I have found both these expectations satisfyingly fulfilled. What makes his sermons special are that they are full of the Word and none of them are quoted out of context.
This sermon is no exception. In this sermon Brother Mahan first of all exposes the error of quoting parts of Scripture for our convenience and gives many such examples. For instance, many quote the latter part of John 6:37 ‚Äď ‚Äúhim that cometh to Me, I will in no wise cast out.‚ÄĚ And they leave out the first half of this verse, which says, ‚ÄúAll that the Father giveth me shall come to Me!‚ÄĚ The reason they do this is because the first half of this verse deals with God sovereignty in salvation and they hate that doctrine.
Not so Brother Mahan. In almost every sermon that I have listened to, he makes it a point to give God all the glory and shows man his inability to save himself. Apart from this, he does what God expects every preacher to do, i.e. not only preach the truth but expose the lie!

Strong Meat! Brother Henry Mahan starts this powerful sermon by saying that his objective in preaching this sermon is not to ‚Äėplease men or tickle their ears‚Äô[Gal1:10]. Oh that God would give us more preachers in the land who could really say this and preach likewise.
The God of the true Christian is a God that divides. You can start reading your King James Bible and even before you are through the first four verses you will notice that God is a God that divides [see Gen 1:4]. The Scriptures do not teach the Fatherhood of god and the brotherhood of all men. Christ divides! And almost all the verses that teach this is covered in this sermon.
In this sermon the preacher makes a remarkable statement that men today brag about the Reformers and kill preachers who preach what the Reformers really preached. Our Lord Jesus Christ was despised and rejected of men when He lived, and in His true character, His true attributes and His true redemption He is just as despised today by the natural man!
What caused the hatred towards our Lord? Many ‚Äėbelieve‚Äô that Christ was hated and despised but they just seem to understand why. Brother Mahan shows very clearly what it was that caused the hatred and challenges the hearer as to what his response would be to such a Jesus and such a teaching.
Great Sermon! This is a MUST hear from Henry Mahan. Its the most graphic and challenging message we have ever heard. It causes you to search your heart diligently to see whether you be in the Faith of God's elect, or just a professor!! Was your repentance truly God-given towards God, or just remorse? Have you truly been given a new heart?
You will not hear such a message from the Pulpit - except by Henry!

Great Sermon! This message is one of the best we have ever heard on Romans 1 v. 16 "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.."
It is powerful in itself, truly God-given and will have a great effect upon the believing hearers. Henry Mahan is not afraid to speak out the truth! hear it!
Great Sermon! A sobering sermon, both for the saved and for the unsaved, for the Arminian and the lukewarm Calvinist. No funny sermon this. It is sure to get you thinking, whether you are a babe or a father in the Lord. If you aren't saved listen to this sermon and get right with God, if you are already saved make sure you are not neglecting so great a Salvation [Heb 2:3] and work it out with fear and trembling![Philipian 2:12]
Dear Brother Mahan, it is my prayer that God will continue to use your ministry greatly and fullfill your calling. I pray that 'utterance may be granted unto you' that you may continue to open your mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the Gospel for which you have been called to be an Ambassador!
Precious Biblical History! As always our dear Borther Mahan uplifts Sovereign Grace and the Lord
This is one the most favorite and
precious stories in the Word of God
and will be a blessing to believers.
Thank God for Sovereign GRACE...
Great Sermon! This brother preached this in the 60's, and what he said as come to pass, and is still happening---people who call themselves--so called Christians, will not want to hear this--only followers of Jesus as Lord and Savior--wants to know and listen to this.
15 Minutes of Absolute Truth Thank God for the precious truths of this teaching. It is such a blessing
to have Brother Tom as a pastor. He
always uplifts the Lord Jesus Christ
in all his sermons. If one trusts in
grace alone, this pastor's sermons will
be more than a blessing. Thank God for
Excellent message! Pastor Mahan preaches with such a love for the Lord, and for His Word. He speaks in such a way that children can understand, and yet, adults are challenged by what he is saying. He's like Jesus in his teaching.
Thank you Pastor Mahan. I love to listen to you preach. My spirit bears witness with your spirit that the things that you are saying are true. You are blessing to the body of Christ.
Superb sermon! This sermon explains the vital relationship between faith and repentance with brilliant clarity. Repentance towards God; faith in Christ. First-rate expository preaching. Recommended.
What a Blessing!! An excellent teaching to Christians.
We should always remember these truths
and apply them to our lives. It is not always easy to love but we must..
Thank you Brother Mahan for such precious words.

who is contemplating marriage or those
who have been affected by divorce.
Listen for words that will help and
save one from a lot of heartache.
God bless our dear Brother Mahan. He
tells us who the Bible is speaking to
and this is a very important Truth.
His love to all the household of faith
is very apparent in this sermon. I
have E-mailed this sermon to one that
is very dear to me and has been affected by divorce with all its
negatives; I pray it will be an encouragment to this person. It was
to me....As our dear brother taught,
we cannot change the past. However, we
as Christians can and should make
right decisions for the future.
