So clear, so concise! Jim, I especially love the observation about Nicodemus representing others who were persuaded that the LORD JESUS was someone very special, very unique, a teacher who came from God. "Master, we know..." We are praying that His Word would travel throughout the whole world with great power. That many would both "know" and "love" our LORD JESUS Christ.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Byrd,
I have heard many sermons that I considered at the time of my hearing or reading them, to be the best ever; sermons by Mahan, Spurgeon, Barnard, Ryle, Pink and others and many of your sermons, especially "The Day of Atonement" series. Then I was certain that the message on the "Peace Offering" preached on July 5th was the best I had ever heard. But I know of no words to describe the blessing of today's August 23, 2015 message "We See Jesus" to my soul. So I will not attempt to do so; except to say that this is truly the best sermon I have every heard in my life.
Today's sermon from Thirteeth Street Baptist Church should be translated into every language and preached in every part of the earth.
All praise to the God of Glory for His abundant mercies in providing a preacher and opening our ears and hearts to the glorious gospel of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Great Sermon! Hi Pastor .
i am embraced by your video teaching ,that i am just watching now Just wondering if you can come to conduct a conference here in Kenya .Here is my website link
Great Sermon! Pastor this sermon is the best sermon I have ever heard. As I am a former SDA trying to live to fulfill the law to be saved, what a blessing is this sermon. The law is truly a heavy burden, and the chains to it are heavy too. I am so thankful to be saved by God's grace alone through the imputed righteousness of Jesus to my account in heaven and His death for my sins.
What a gospel!! So wonderful as like you said, it has all been done by Jesus as my substitute.
Thank you for this wonderful sermon. I just wish all SDA could hear it, but I know they won't listen.
But I am so thankful to hear it and praise God for releasing me from the horrible preaching of legalism. It has not been easy to come out of it. But thank you Jesus, I am so thankful for your life you have for me, and for God's mercy and grace in the gift of His Son to me forever. And thank you for Brother Byrd and his sermons that glorify you and puts man in a helpless condition. thank you thank you
Great Sermon! What an amazing series of sermons. These are so deep and rich in biblical teaching. Only the LORD can can give this kind of teaching. Praise the LORD for his blessing his people through the preacher.
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.
Love in Christ, English Rose and George
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.
