Great Sermon! I've listened to this several times already and will probably listen to it several more times. I find it very comforting in these very dark days as I observe the world, the culture and society and leadership of my country, and the overall indifference in people for their eternal state. Thank you for this.
Please! Uphold His Truth at all costs! Pastor, Do not desire the worldly trappings - the big building and the big congregation! Stay true to the Gospel - and uphold every point - do not look to the right or to the left, but keep your eyes straight on. We've seen it happen, even in sovereign grace gatherings. The big brick building is built, the brass chandeliers are installed, the enormous paved parking lot is laid. The group grows and more folks come from here and there. Next thing you know - we've seen it happen - little diversions take hold. One of the first is the denial of the literal 6 days of creation. It starts like this: The pastor says, "Is God's Genesis account a literal 6 days, literally six 24-hour days? I don't know. It could be metaphorical. It doesn't really matter..." Next thing your know, the preaching really takes off in compromising other "hard things" and the focus is "how to know whether or not you're really saved". The preaching caters to assuring worldings that they really HAVE called upon the Name of the LORD. Then, it all goes to pot at a very rapid rate. Stay small. Stay true. Stay focused. Stay near the cross. God's Truth is known by revelation, not by reasoning. We are praying for you all.
Great Sermon! Thank you brother Don..A blessing to my soul and a lift to my spirit..thank you too for the effort you put into the clarity of your recordings.. God bless you and your brethren...ivan.
Powerful Sermon! This message was a black or white statement -- no grey allowed. For the elect, this is the best news you will ever hear, but unfortunately, the notion that Christ died for all is growing in the weak churches and false preachers. This is another indication that The Rapture is nearing closer every day and we must study the Scriptures more each day and get stronger in the Lord.
Great Sermon! I have this sermon a true blessing. So many times when I try and speak the gospel to people they don't want to hear it. Now I know that I am not a failure, as some people believe and some don't. But our efforts arise as incense to God, as the gospel is about Jesus.
Yes, truly I am thankful to God for victory over death. Thank you for this comforting sermon.
Great Sermon! Excellent message describing the moral "downward spiral" indicated in Romans 1. When sinful man worships himself and calls ithe worship of God, chaos will multiply. False pastors and preachers hasten society's moral decay.
Great Sermon! Greatly encouraged and strengthened by the Lord after hearing this message. May the Lord continue to bless Pastor Fortner as he continues to preach God's Word in truth and in power by the Holy Spirit.
The Study of Angels Hi Don. Paul Fulcher from San Jose California here.
I hope all is good with you and your family as well as the brethern out in Kentucky.
It was great seeing you in Rescue this past January. It has been a while.
The reason I am reaching out to you is because I was listening to your sermon on: "The Study of Angels", and when you referenced "Luke 16:22 (Time at 15 minutes in the video), what you read in the video sermon was not reflective in that portion of scripture. Can you please let me know where in the KJV "Come with the Lord Jesus to carry our souls home to heavenly places; when we die." Is referenced.
Thank you in advance, and I hope to hear from you soon.
Faithful in Christ,
Dear Angus and our brothers and sisters in Nowra, We have been so happy in our LORD Jesus, hearing these sermons through the incredible Word of God to the church in Thessalonica. How wonderful to know He wrote it to all of us, too. Our God has told us everything we must know, and we are continually astonished to see a little of His great love, power, mercy, strength, wisdom and righteousness by the revelation to our hearts in His Word. Soon, we shall see Him Face-to-face. We are praying for you all. Love in Christ, Arthur and Kathleen
Great Sermon! This is quite the sermon!! i have never heard another one like it!! I truly enjoyed it, an inspiration, and encouragement to me. I like listening to all your sermons. Encouragement and comfort are always needed by me. Thank you for this sermon.
Eternity! Oh, what a Word! Thank you, Allen, so much. I often think about the terrors of hell - eternal burning, complete isolation from God, hopeless darkness and confusion forever - and then, I try to fathom that my Saviour ENDURED all that...for me! Who is sufficient for these things? Praise His Name forever more!
