Great Sermon! This is a good, balanced message on Christmas. Pastor Ovadal brings up some excellent points as to what Christmas really is and what its focus really is, really asking Christians to search their own hearts. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, give it a listen and search your own traditions and heart.
Apprehend True Eternal Life! This sermon is an outstanding look at what eternal life should mean to a Christian, and how far short beliefs can sometimes come. Listen and learn the true depths of eternal life! And maybe someone has found this site, or this sermon, and is not a Christian. Give this a listen, and learn about the true Christian hope of eternal life that is very different from what you may have heard!
Great Sermon! Holding Rome as a true church and an effectual ally in the war on error (moral nd otherwise)is an error itself. Rome does not preach the apostolic gospel of grace, but her official teachings assert works of faith help merit eternal life (contra Rm. 4). What she most effectual fosters is faith and dependence in herself and ones own merits for salvation.
As a force for morality, both personal testimony and every formal study i have read shows liberalism with it's attendant immoral positions thrives in ares where Romanism predominates (see Revealing Statistics at peacebyjesus.com). I live in one. Such is the case with a "form of religion" that denies the power thereof.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Ovadal,
Thank you for your sermon "Yet Now Be Strong...and Work" as it has greatly encouraged me today! May the good LORD continue to use you to bless and encourage His children.
Courageous Sermon! Courageous beyond Words; Well outlined and artfully presented; This Preacher deserves our Prayers and Encouragment.
If you get an hour to listen to a sermon today - this one is worth your sacrifice of time.
Great Sermon! Resist the Pope! Don't be deceived by the conservative politicians, pastors, and commentators who support him!...and that includes Dobson and Billy Graham! The Pope has an agenda which will foster tyranny for evangelicals. The Pope calls himself the VICAR of Christ on Earth! It's a lie and a heresy! He is an imposter!
Great Sermon! I am happy to know you have the wisdom to adress this subject matter. I for years was a paid powerlifter. This was my only God(Myself)The folly of sports evangelizing is to confuse many.In what appears to be of God(public view)is nothing more than,blinding the hearts and lives of all.
"We call this food Eucharist, and no one else is permitted to partake of it, except one who believes our teaching to be true and who has been washed in the washing which is for the remission of sins and for regeneration [i.e., has received baptism] and is thereby living as Christ enjoined. For not as common bread nor common drink do we receive these; but since Jesus Christ our Savior was made incarnate by the word of God and had both flesh and blood for our salvation, so too, as we have been taught, the food which has been made into the Eucharist by the Eucharistic prayer set down by him, and by the change of which our blood and flesh is nurtured, is both the flesh and the blood of that incarnated Jesus" (First Apology 66 [A.D. 151]).

Great Sermon! Christians ought to listen to this - "this Bible perversion" is something called God's Word - I was unfamiliar with it, but Pastor Ovadal's discussion is a fascinating look at not just how the Bible is being watered down, but the very assault on the foundations of our Occidental civilization - the translators not only do not want to use words with precise meanings, they do not want to use English words derived from Latin. My eyes were opened by this sermon.
Very Informative A very informative two-part lecture on the causes, connections and major players in the centuries old bloodshed and political intrigue on the island of Ireland. This is information which is generally suppressed within the so-called media of today. May indeed the LORD be gracious to send us revival and His healing truth.
Great Sermon! I didn't know much about what was going on in Nothern Ireland. This presentation puts America's freedom of religion into perspective, and shows a different Christianity where Christians pay a price for their beliefs.
Along with this sermon, I found a book "Teach Yourself The History Of Ireland" -- I do not know how good the material in this book is (anyone from Northern Ireland want to review it?), but it does help put the people, groups, dates, and places into context. This is extremely helpful background information for me. I would recommend skimming a book like this before listening to the lecture if you are not familiar with the Irish situation, to get more out of the talk.
Great Sermon! I only wish more Reformed believers would take time to listen to both part 1 and 2 to understand the real issues regarding bible translations. Both sermons will cause so many serious questions that need to be answered and so much relevant and interesting factual information that you just might not have previously heard on the blurb of those new versions or from Pastor!
Excellent sermons from the same reformed WCF Protestant view as The Trinitarian Bible Society!
More sermons needed like this! I couldn't concur more with Pastor Ralph. I truly appreciate more pastors speaking out against this fraudulent junk of the Roman Catholic Church. There is nothing Christain about it. There is no TRUTH to found and yet so many people have been seduced by satan and what's even more unconscionable is the fact that our leading Evangelical Brothers have come along side the Catholic Church in an alliance for so called "morality". ECT (Evangelicals and Catholics coming together) document is no equal partnership, but a one way street to Rome and Rome will gain final control to usurp and dominate the world (Rev. 17). There must be an urgency in true believers to warn continually against this blantant apostasy and to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered unto the saints. In you love Christ, you will be loyal to His Truth at all cost. No amount of money, political clout , or power can temp you to commit treason against Jesus Christ. Like Peter, these "new Evangelicals", as they are called, have betrayed our Lord and have denied Him. I pray for repentence from the likes of Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, Chuck Colson, James Dobson, J.I. Packer, and so many more and most importantly I pray for courage; for that is what is needed today. You can not compromise with the devil.
Great Sermon! As usual, great teaching from Pastor Ovadal! True Christians must resist the lie that the Roman Catholic Church represents Christ. Furthermore, we must pray for the salvation of those who are under the spell of the papacy.
Great Sermon! I agree with the thrust of this sermon - that the text of the original Bible needs to be translated word-for-word and accurately. There are too many translations now that take liberties with the Bible's meaning. Over the years, I've really come to understand just how important this is. Also, I'd really like a KJV defender to give me more information about two things: (1) Why do KJV defenders believe using the KJV implies a person has sound doctrine? My experience has been that doctrinal errors come from KJV users as much as anyone (especially the Word of Faith movement, which has all but replaced Christianity as America's belief system), and correct doctrine comes from NKJV,ESV, etc users; and (2) instead of dying over and over on the hill of trying to get people to use a translation they simply don't understand, why don't KJV defenders pool their resources and create a modern, readable, understandable translation based on the TR? The KJV may be perfect, but it is so antique that people don't understand it. Wasn't the Reformation meant to give us the Bible in our own language? If the NKJV and ESV are not acceptable, why not create a translation that is? I'm really curious about this.
A GODLY SAVING MESSAGE i wish the pastors &church leaders etc here in my home town northwich could even understand your message let alone act on it and preach it, as its sadly all prosperity gospel of love etc in my home town, that is why i travel the distance to chester to hear a like minded pastor to yourself
pastor David Carson
may God bless your ministries and work
Clear & forceful FOUNDATIONAL teaching! Thank you brother Ralph. A great outline of primary PROBLEMS with the corrupt [2 Cor. 2:17 ]'bibles'(like the MESS-age):
I really liked the warning against marketing ploys, and silly formated for demographics 'bible for teens','bible for women','bible for men' ad nauseum.
How dare anyone take the words of God and put it into THEIR words: this even applies in Ovadal's advice to "Forget about STUDY Bibles, read His Word, with a decent concordance, and read it over and over!"
Take notes on the list about 25 minutes in of the KEY verses showing the need for specific words being defended from deletion/corruption."For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
Doctrines are changed by subtle ( Gen 3:1) word changes: the real meat of this message, the doctrinal differences (30 minutes in) makes clear why this is not a periperal issue. The WEIRD Mess-Age Peterson version shows the way these drain the power of the fire of God's word: Jer.23:29-3
"Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbor..."
Is.30:9"speak unto us smooth things"?NO!
Thank you, Pastor Ovadal Dear Pastor Ovadal,
Thank you for preaching on the Cross of Christ.
I commend Christians who are reaching out to the youth as you have done, and are still doing. The good LORD knows the wicked are certainly distributing their ungodly message through gov't school books.
