Great Sermon! The Only Hope for America is an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
God is Spirit. Therefore, pray in the spirit. Be filled with the spirit. Jesus said "The words that I speak unto you are spirit and they are life (John 6). Praying is worship. They that worship God must worship in spirit and in truth. Thy word is truth. The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. With gentleness and meekness, speak truth to thy neighbor. God sought us out to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
The spiritual man, the regenerated twice born believer, has God's promise that His will will be done if we seek His righteousness and His kingdom first.
So let us storm the gates of heaven in prayer that our great and merciful Redeemer be revealed to the lost, in every place and situation, that the Spirit of God be poured out upon the souls of man; that pain suffered in the storm not be in vain. May all suffering be redemptive for His name's sake. To God be the glory in every storm.
He is too lovely for us to keep Him from the eyes of others.
Let us meet Jesus once again at the well and drink of waters springing up to everlasting life.
Bless your soul Brother. Bless your soul. Your preaching is a Godly blend of a hammer and dew ... Is not my word like a hammer - Jer 23:29 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew - Deut 32:2
Thank You Brother. Thank You Pastor. Thank You Holy Spirit. You met me right where I am for 13 consecutive messages. I thought I was the Jonah out there. It's a vicious Battle. Agree it's basically every day, hour by hour. Though there are seasons of refreshing. And then another layer of sin and deceit is exposed. The Good Physician.
Praise Him For The Plant! Praise Him For The Worm! Praise Him For The Cross! Curse God and Die ... I should have been dead a long time ago should have been struck dead this morning! I will not die but live to declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Thank you for your preaching Pastor Thank You! Worthy is The Lamb! Worthy is The Lamb!
Great Sermon! Mephibosheth, you get it!
Ninevah, Samaria, Jericho, and other abandoned cities need us. We can't simply know about the idolatry and sin only to make a sermon from it. We need to go into that town with the gospel. The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation.
Sermons today are simply making believers knowledgeable about what is wrong with the world we were once a part of. Saints need to be equipped with the word; which is sharper than a two-edged sword, so that it cuts through stinkin thinkin - anti-biblical views. And always with love. That love which God hath shed in the hearts of all the redeemed, and with gentleness.
Rock the boat. Invite a lost soul to dinner. It just might hold back an impending storm.
I've Despised It. I've Despised Him. The whom my soul loveth. The one who loved me and died for me. Indwelling sin is a Monster. A Monster of Iniquity. A Monster of Selfishness. A Monster of Deception. On that final day it shall die. When we see Him we shall be like Him - 1 John
Yah He's still running. Toss me overboard. Anything but Nineveh. I'm with you and Sinclair. Add Mephibosheth to the commentators that Jonah is still running with his request to go overboard. Take it from me, I'm an runner extraordinaire and I'm lame in both legs!
My man has got some insight here. No place to run. No place to hide. Thank you Pastor for your diligent study of The Word and the "apples of gold" ... "Choice words are like apples of gold in settings of silver" ... Thanks for the Apples !
Yes it's both. We are whiter than snow and being made whiter than snow. And yes it's a daily battle. If your not experiencing the battle then get "in the game". It's unmistakable! Cause it's a viscious battle. Basically every day. Sometime all day! Sometime all night as well! Flesh and Spirit. Spirit and Flesh. Sin hates us and we hate sin. Progressive Sanctification till the day we die! Complete Sanctification when we die ... When we see Him we shall be like Him ! - 1 John
