Great Sermon! For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up
The event that immediately preceeds the "rapture" is the Resurrection of those that are "dead in Christ." Thus the event that happens FIRST is the ressurection of the dead saints.
Jesus spoke 4 times in the 6th chapter of John, and in John 11 of EXACTLY when that will happen.
John 6:39-40 JN 6:44 Jn 6:54 JN 11:24
Great Sermon! This sermon was so enlightening i could never grasp the concept of how the thought process worked in this sermon and with the help of the Holy Spirit it was like someone had switched the light on. praise God for your sermons the one problem that i had was my mind and thought life now praise be to God my thoughts can start being renewed and transformed by the Holy Spirit. may God bless you in your ministry
Great Sermon! We need more sermons on spiritual warfare, a subject that I don't see taught all that much anymore. I hope this preacher has a lot more audios because this subject is encouraging and very needed
Excellent Sermon! I have been struggling with "destructive evil thoughts" for many many years. Thank you so much telling me how to overcome this "mental torture." Your sermon has finally freed me. GOD Bless you a thousand fold for all the goodness and healing you have brought to others.
Great Sermon! Great Sermon, very thought provoking and should terrify those who do not care about the Lordship of Jesus Christ over their lives. Very Very powerful, all believers whether true or professor should listen to this. May God use this sermon and others like it to bring people to Him in these last days of Apostasy
Great Sermon! This sermon was well taught. God began to teach me His way, and it took years for my understanding to be convinced because I am not willing to believe everything I hear. I once believed it but study changed my mind. As Isiah said, "Men in the last days would teach the fear of the Lord after the knowledge of men and not after the wisdom of God. My brothers, a storm is coming.
Simply the Best! We all know that we need to wait upon the Lord. But how to do that is another thing. This sermon not only tells us Biblically how to do that, but it comforts, encourages, and gives hope to those that are painfully waiting. I thank the Lord for this life-saving message. And I thank Mr. Stewart as well.
Some truly helpful info! This sermon had much good to say in the short 26minutes it ran.
In fact, I am going to listen again and take notes because this sermon had so many good points that i want to remember everything that was said. I now know werein my stress and common misery lie and now that I know..I can hopefully change. Thank you so much for this insightful message.
Very concise, very Biblical, very necessary This is a message that is remarkably concise and is full of the strength and warmth of sound Biblical counsel. Praise God for this sermon; it struck me powerfully that I must repent my sin of proud unbelief above all other sins, which are outworkings of that chief rebellion. There is much explicit New Testament teaching on this but we are apt to ignore it. In the Lord's power, Dr. Stewart says something that the Christian needs to hear, consider and act upon much more often than we usually do.
Great Sermon, But... Jay comments: (The speaker) attempts to put an end to the on-going debate over the pre-trib/post-trib situation. I personally favor more of the
pre-trib persuasion...It appears to me
that he left some info untouched. [One]thing that kind of disturbed me was the fact that he seemed to support the replacement theory which means that the Church and Israel are the same or that God has left Israel after turning away from God so many times. Dr. Stewart Responds: Thanks, Jay, for listening and for your comments. The discussion over the timing of the rapture will continue until Jesus forces the Church to agreement by the Event itself. I'm trying to encourage this discussion among Bible believers. Regarding Replacement Theology, I reject it categorically. The Dispensational view requires the total disparity between Israel and the Church to make their case for the pretribulation rapture. What I am seeking to demonstrate is that the Apostles saw Gentile Believers as being grafted into spiritual Israel. They also use much of the same terminology in speaking of the Church and Israel. We are two people with a common spiritual heritage and in many regards a common destiny that will take us both through the seven years of Jacob's troubles.
This is so apropriate Praise God... this sermon speaks to me like an arrow hitting the bullseye. In time of confusion and anxiety, I am ministered to and found strength. Blessed be the Lord my God... for Your faithfulness last forever. Amen! Thanks Dr. Stewart... you are greatly anointed.
Gracious and Thought Provoking A very gracious and careful treatment of a subject that too often generates more heat than light. Regardless of
your persuasion, there is much that is profitable here and worth wrestling with.
Great Sermon! I found this sermon to be helpful as it dealt with the subject of death and refuted what is called â€˜soul-sleepâ€™. I am currently involved in a discussion with a person who rejects traditional views of the state of the dead in favor of belief in soul-sleep and this sermon provided biblical light on the subject. Thanks for making it available.
I'm Not Sure? Mark says: This sermon seems to be be based on a massive presumption. Dr
Stewart says that he is unaware of any way for tempting thoughts to get in the
head of a regenerated Christian other than Satan placing them there. I've never heard anything like this before, and the Bible doesn't explicitly teach this...In refutation of Dr Stewart Romans 7:22-25 says:
For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law
of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members."
Dr. Stewart responds: Thanks, Mark, for you excellent question. What the Bible tells us is that it is the law (or power)of indwelling sin in our flesh that is the source of sinful thoughts served up to our minds. "We have the mind of Christ" Paul asserts, and "a house divided against itself cannot stand," the Savior taught. If sinful thoughts come from my regenerated mind (innermost being), I am a divided house and will surely fail. John MacArthur states regarding Rom. 7:17-20, "His sin does not flow from out of his new redeemed innermost self ("I"), but from his unredeemed humanness, his flesh "in me" (Gal. 5:17)...The flesh serves as a base camp from which sin operates in the Christian's life"
