Great Sermon! Mr. Weaver touched on some very important themes here but I would have liked him to engage with the notion that the Civil War (or the War Of Northern Aggression) settled the state's rights issue.
Regrettably, the state's rights position has been forever intertwined with a hollow excuse for justifying slavery and later Jim Crow laws in the South. Also regrettable has been the history of some preachers who actually used the Bible to sanction the institution slavery--an institution that had more to do with economics and lees with any genuine support from the Bible.
This is regrettable because I believe with Mr. Weaver that state's rights is a marvelous mechanism by which to check the coercive power of the state. The Founders were indeed very wise in this matter. However, we need to extricate it from all the excess baggage it has accumulated over the years and I am not sure the Biblical route Mr. Weaver has chosen is the best way.
The Founders spoke about "nature and nature's laws" as a way of buttressing their arguments for liberty. In using this phrase the Founders were appealing to Natural Law which applies equally to all men and women regardless of race or religion.
In a pluralistic society like ours this may be more persuasive and less subject to the old baggage.
Pay attention to these words! Why has your great country become odious in the eyes of other peoples is because of what it has become under the tyranny of federalism that exerts its will internationally as a tool in the hands of an invisable elite. The press which is controlled by these people will no longer speak up. You must put this address in the hands of your citizens, your neighbours yourselves. Secondly you must weep, pray, and repent like Nehemiah that you may once again be a light in this lost world of despotic governments.
Great Sermon! One of the best sermons on the issue of REAL sacrifice...once again, Bro Weaver is well read, well studied, and well documented in his telling of the Christian's plight in the Southland.
Razor no more... Brother John - Thank you very much for this message which has brought to light a very obscure truth in our generation. I have never had a beard, never wanted one and honestly prefer to be clean-shaven. Now I see how this is yet another area of my life where I have been deceived by the enemy and our wicked and adulterous unisex generation. Thanks to bro Slattery for mentioning this message in one of his radio interviews. I put my razor and shaving cream in the closet today so as to get my life more in conformity with God's patter for Biblical manhood. Peace in Jesus the Messiah.
RARE SERMON, which makes it great! This is an eye-opener, readily demonstrating the Scriptural position that the unbelievers will be taken out before the Believers. Of course, this is totally opposite from Dispensationalism, which opposition further authenticates the ring of truth of the message to all who have ears to hear.

Isa 59:14 - And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
Wonderful Message About Loving One Another! This is a humbling sermon that cuts to the heart regarding unity and division among the Body. Pastor Weaver often says in other sermons that as Christians we must stand together or hang separately and that it was division in the Church in this country that led to all of these other divisions and factions we all see today in the States. We need to ask ourselves, 'How important is this difference?' Pagans are watching us to see how we love one another... or how we don't. Like Pastor Weaver's other sermons, this is worth listening to over and over again!
A Powerful Message Series Part 1 is going to lead the listener to follow through with Parts 2 through 5 on this series, in order to learn all the ways that God is SLOWLY pouring out his wrath, and bringing judgement on the USA (and perhaps other nations in the world in the process). In listening to all five messages, I don't see how any can be refuted, or not be viewed to be occurring in the present. Marana tha, and may God have mercy on our souls!
Great Sermon! I'm enjoying your series on the Lord's Supper, and I really enjoyed this sermon in particular and the rich meaning involved as to why as God's People use wine at the Lord's Table. Our family continues to be edifyed and blessed by your bold, caring and precious preaching, Pastor Weaver. May God bless you, your family and your church unto a thousand generations and longer.
A Sobering Message Regarding our Family! With a 90-year-old unsaved Dad who worships the gnostic god of the Masonic Lodge, I understand the heartache of having the deceived-unsaved in my immediate family. I also understand the sovereignty of God in the salvation of the Elect, from His having saved me at age 43. Praise Him Who gives, and Him Who takes away!
Amazing Concept Regarding God's Judgement! With all the talk today about God 'going' to bring judgement, this message is absolutely fascinating that God's judgement against the entire nation began with the South's losing of the war. It's a correct observation that today, EVERY state in the union is enslaved to the Federal Government . . . every state is under God's judgement, evidenced by it's absolute loss of freedom . . . yet we're the 'free-est'-appearing nation on the face of today's earth . . . what a paradox!!
Phew! This message preaches good, pastor! Having personally opposed NAFTA and CAFTA, and the related millions of illegal aliens now within our borders, and seeing the 2006 Republican effort to delete both our northern and southern sovereign borders, for the purpose, they say, of opening up free trade throughout North America, this message has great impact! Seeing the uncontrolled growth of the USA federal beaucracy, the gross financial mismanagement of our national finances and the resulting national debt, with no one in the government taking responsibility for or even trying to address this issue, and without having personally agreed to this massive debt, I'm totally unwilling to be individually responsible for about $29,000.00 of it, as is every man, woman and child alive in our nation today. It's no surprise at all that they won't end the "death tax". As criminal investigators often say, "Follow the Money". Our federal government is in desperate need of this money, along with all the cash in the Social Security Trust Fund. This is hardly Scriptural financial management!!! Again I ask, where does the responsibility for this mismanagement lay, and who is going to do anything about it??! Or do we all simply send in a check for $29,000.00??!
Just Listen Right Now! What an uplifting, refreshing sermon! Pastor Weaver lovingly reminds us of truths we know in our heads and scriptures we've heard over and over, yet we still need to hear because of our forgetfulness and sinful tendencies that can so easily weigh us down. This sermon will drive you to the scriptures with a renewed boldness for serving the One True and Living God as you are reminded Who really is in charge and how much He loves you.
