Awesome Gospel in this Sermon! How can you be ashamed of this Gospel. Christ was made of the seed of David according to the flesh. Then, He must be man, otherwise how could He reach salvation home to us. Here are two strange parties; here is the wrath of God, here is the great gulf of sin and there is fallen man. And what is He that is revealed in the gospel? It's the divine person of the Son in the mystery of the Godhead and in the mystery of Christ was made of a woman, made under the law, that He might redeem those who were under the law. How can you be ashamed of this glorious gospel by mere living in the bare dead letter of your own fleshly historical Christ. He is not here, He is risen!
Awesome Sermon! I saw all of Christ and His 'Ecclesia' full of life everlasting in this sermon. Awesome glorious living gospel, centered on resurrected Christ soul filling, full of life and life sustaining His people; the only way in whom justification by faith is found. Glory to God, His love eternal.
Yes, Very Good. God Will "Reveal" Only to His Elect,the Meat in do Season,He determines. I Am so thankful To Him For Showing Me His Redeeming Love on The Cross,to be my Substitute for Sin and Death,& give life,all by His Grace,Mercy and Loving Kindness.Prov. 19:22 and Ps.132-The Purpose Revealed. Ps.I beleive the Treasure in the field is also Jesus Christ Leaving His Throne to "Purchase His Saints,the Treasure.
Powerfully edifying I listened to this sermon for the first time today and truly wish that I heard it fifteen years ago (and then periodically since then). It was the best treatment I have ever heard on this subject. What a mercy to have preaching like this.
Thank you so much! Pastor Fortner, Thank you so much for this clear, concise delivery of REDEMPTION ACCOMPLISHED in Jesus Christ our LORD. No one could leave, scratching their head, saying, "What did he mean by that?" What a blessing to hear the true Gospel of God's Free Sovereign Grace again and again. Our LORD has sent you to tell the Gospel, and so, we can be sure that there are many who must hear.
Great Sermon! Salvation is of the Lord! Praise God! What a powerful sermon! I so appreciate how the Grace of God in Christ is exhalted while human sin is freely confessed in Forter's preaching. May God cause this sermon to be used mightily for His own purposes and glory!
We are mourning with you... Dear Pastor and Shelby, We heard tonight at the sermon outset of your great sorrow and trial. We will share this burden with you, as the LORD allows. Be strong, dear ones. Preach the Word, our brother, our sister, and we will all enter into perfect joy and rest at last when all things are fully accomplished. We suffer in this vail of tears, but oh! what glory awaits us and all those for whom He died! Watch therefore and wait. We love you and are praying for you and all your kin.
Begone unbelief! My Saviour is near... Dear Pastor, You said, "Christ is in the vessel", and this amazing statement filled my eyes with tears. You see, I'm currently working on a new melody for Newton's, "Begone Unbelief", a difficult task, and the words of that hymn have been circling around and around in my head for many weeks. Newton wrote, "...by prayer let me wrestle and He will perform, with Christ in the vessel, I smile at the storm..." Your sermon has touched a deep place in my heart at this very moment, as I, too, am laboring to enter into His glorious rest. I take your message to be an evident token from my LORD to go on, though the storm is raging. "Go on, my heart, go on! Your Saviour will perform." Thank you in Christ, Pastor Pruitt. We will be praying that you find peace in your storm and we know that eventually, you will.
