Cover This Pastor in Prayer! Dear Pastor Trewhella, This is a great message even if it is a heartbreaking one that is likely to infuriate the enemies of God both outside and inside of today's churches and get you into trouble with ungodly authorities. In my humble opinion we need more pastors who would lay things as they are, especially the Truth of what God's word teaches us before their congregations in the increasingly difficult and perilous times we are living in right now such as you have done, when we so need to be on our faces before God in mourful confession our own sins and neglect to stand up for the Truth, seeking the will of God and His power to live faithfully for Jesus Christ, and to cover one another in our praying. May God give favor to you and others who would call the people of God to wake up out of our sleep and apathy, especially me to be men and to stand for the Lord Jesus Christ, the families He has entrusted to us and the Truth of the Gospel which is of course the Power of God for Salvation to everyone who believes.
Great Sermon! Pastor Trewhella mentions a non-christian sociologist predicted no-fault divorce, abortion on demand and rampant homosexuality ... in 1947. He studied failed cultures including the Roman Empire and France and all of them collapsed when people no longer wanted to have children. Outstanding 5-Star sermon!!
Great Sermon! One I Want to Share and Discuss What a blessing and encouragement! Pastor this sermon motivates me to get to know the "Lesser Magistrates" around me, even the deacons and elders in our local churches and to pray fervently for them, especially seeing the Holy Spirit moved Paul to instruct us to pray for those in authoriy in 1 Timothy 2 as it seems we are far from the so needed revealed will of God being done in this so important area of life both in government against tyrannts and in our churches against false teachers and teaching.
Great Sermon! This is so timely for today. Gave me a real lift in the face of so many indifferent "believers."I thank you. Posting to my FB page to encourage the few friends who are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.
Great Vindicating Sermon! I voted Constitution Party and was castigated by Christians who I thought were my friends. I was even told by one that "I deserve 4 more years of Obama." I refused to vote for both heathens and I was even unfriended on Facebook by one Christian friend. The normal complaint was that if you vote third party, then it is a vote for Obama. No it isn't, it was a vote for a Christian man who reflected biblical principles. I wonder if those who castigated me for voting Constitution Party run their lives in the same manner they vote. Christians refuse to do any investigation and studies on their own. The term "sheeple" belong to many Christians because of their apathy. Thank you for this great sermon because it vindicates those of us who did not follow Fox news or those who "think" they are Christian leaders like John MacArthur. To those Christians who vote for the lesser of two evils WAKE UP! Where do we read in Scripture that we are to pray that God places a Christ hating heathen to rule over us? There needs to be a mass repentance on the part of all Christians who voted for Romney or Obama. Maybe God is judging this nation because of the apathy of His children and that is why we have an evil leader.
Great Sermon Series! I've listened to both parts and found this series to be fascinating! I've long admired Pastor Trewhella's pro-life activism, but didn't realize he also has a love of Church History (which is really His-Story)and a true gift for relating the information to others in a style that's easy to follow and understand. I look forward to hearing and learning more! May the good Lord bless Pastor Trewhella and his ministry.
Great Sermon! Thank you thank you...I am taking notes like crazy; wonderful exposition of truly what the Gospel is, and what one must do to be saved. I shall be grateful to you for laying it out so that I can now more easily share "The Gospel" with my FB and real-life friends. God bless!!!
Common Sense may say otherwise! In the interest of "edifying" and an encouragement to test the spirits for truth, I present this common sense perspective.
- Luke 21:37 â€śAnd in the day he was teaching in the temple: and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.â€ť
Matthew 24:3 â€śAnd as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?â€ť
Here, now much later in the day, in private, Jesus lays out to his disciples an overview, a tapestry if you will of signs and things to come and what leads up to the end.
This is an overview of the Christian era. History confirms we have seen and heard of wars and rumors of wars; likewise we have seen nations and kingdoms rise against one another as well as famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers places throughout the past 1,900 years - common sense tells us Jesus foretold of the Christian era and it just simply can not pertain to a mere 70 year period.
What was said earlier in the day was a different time and place â€“ the destruction of the temple has nothing to do with what transpires and is said in the evening, on the mount of olives, a half days walk from the temple, later in th
