Great Sermon! Jim Byrd's sermon on Declaring the Gospel, is a great reminder that all glory for the Gospel belongs to God, because of
what He did for us through His Son,
Jesus, at the Cross.
It's also a great reminder that accepting
the Gospel in not to make us a "Somebody", but it is to make us a "Nobody" in this life, so we can truly be a "Somebody" after Jesus returns.
As John said in John 3:30, He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease.
And as Paul said in Phil. 3:8...I count all things as loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord....(9) And be found in him (in Christ), not having mine own righteousness, ...which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God.
And a Paul reminds us in Phil. 2:6-9 paraphrased, how God could make Himself of no reputation, to take on flesh, like ours, then even be obedient to the cross, then to be exalted by God....
This should be a great reminder to us of how we, too, need to die to ourselves in this life, and let Christ be exalted, then later, to exalted...
Great Sermon! Beautiful sermon on God's sovereignty. Men can wrestle with this doctrine as I have and reach one conclusion. Trust Him who is all wise and powerful and can do no wrong. Whose ways are past finding out.
Great Sermon! Pastor Bill. We thank God for your ministry and we have just listened to this sermon. You have such a good overview, and would love to hear more.
I found it so helpful to have confirmation of how the world hates us, as it is my experience, with the Religious ones showing their hatred of the true gospel of God's redeeming grace.

Church? Satan is not warring against the church, the church is in heaven. The main reason is the woman is clearly Israel. The child is Christ,the seven heads and ten horns is clearly the ten nation confederation of the of the anti-christ of middle eastern nation. the church is not mentioned anywhere.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor.
Bearing Fruit & not producing it was a revelation to me. I have also understood the deeper meaning of Works of Flesh, Fruit of the Spirit, Walking in Spirit & Living in Spirit.
Great Sermon! Brother does an excellent job showing how we have many false prophets and teachers following the old ways of deceiving people. We must be very observant and discern when any false words are spoken today, just as in ancient days.
