Repeating mistakes Reading the transcript of this has restated again awareness of our present state of lose. Since the 50s, the church has lost almost two generations: a substantial fraction of these to modernism; and by large, the main bulk to the world, and yes to utter perdition by shear skepticism. Parents and Christian leaders have given the young what they themselves wanted, craved or were immersed into, this is, what the flesh wants, the world and its appealing entertainment, tactics and gain, instead of restraining the access to it by word, example, practice and method. Many persist in this mode expecting different results, or simply hopelessly resigned to accept repeated failure in the lives of their grandchildren after seeing their children already lost to the same. Existing prayer meetings in many churches are â€˜mending workshopsâ€™ where church members smooth out with praying platitudes the pertaining issues of daily existence. There is no Spirit-originated prayer, so the mind of God is absent in the pleading; human â€˜mindedâ€™ prayers reign to no avail. May warnings as this, bring the remnant to their senses.
Great Sermon! I pray that God will use this sermon in the hearts of His remnant, He has caused to hunger and thirst for Christ's righteousness. I pray that God will encourage the listening Christian to pray and to ask for the "Old Paths". I pray that God will bless this sermon to the heart of the hearer and for the Glory of His own name. Thank you.
AMEN!!!!!!! I join you in prayer. We are desperate in our cry before the Lord for our nation. From the north, south, east and west, May the church awaken to her call. Time is so short and the laborers so few while a multitude of Americans are headed into eternity without Christ. Lord, break our hearts as Your heart breaks for each and every lost soul. We need a 'highway and by way' revival. It's time to come out of 'churchianity' with the fire of God burning in our hearts to bring in the harvest. The fields are white all across this nation.
Great Sermon! Thank you for preaching the simple, yet powerful truth of God's Word! May God pour out His Spirit one more time upon this nation in such an eye opening awakening of one's own desperate spiritual state before the Lord....a multitude of broken and contrite hearts, repentant and surrendered to Christ, born again by His Spirit. Lord, hear our prayers.
Powerful Sermon! I agree, easy believ-ism will not and cannot produce true converts, repeating the sinner's prayer only teaches seekers to say what we want to hear them say, it does not cause regeneration,
that can only be accomplished by the Holy Spirit of God!
Great Sermon! Amen Amen What a mighty God we serve! He is eager to forgive us and His Name is Holy! Jesus Christ My Savior Praise to you I don't know why God would save me, but I know He did just that, He saved me from the pit of hell, the church has always had tares but American Pride has incorporated the church and no one can refuse Satan temptations, PRIDE PRIDE PRIDE All I can do today is pray God forgive us, it starts so innocently and spreads like wildfire, Narrow is "The Way" to life, but people don't care, they are rude and arrogant, if only Jesus Christ could reach their stubborn hearts as He did mine.... He is Our only hope, He is my only love, Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saves a wretch like me I once was lost but now am found was blind but now I see.
Keep posting Brother E.A. Johnston
Thank you May God be with you,
Wonderful! Listened to this and also with my kids. What a testimony of true evangelism. And I love the boldness of this man when he called out that reprobate H. Emerson Fosdick. I ordered the book by his daugther Levi Sung. Also I loved his real seminary ... reading through the bible 40 times in 193 days. Thank you Pastor Johnston.
Great Sermon! The truth is, we have no church is America, we did once, but no longer, I was saved and God has shown me, these people love themselves, NOT Christ, NOT The Church, Stay away from these places or you too will get caught in their evil influence, it's from The Dark side, pray for Our Savior to return, I thought it was just this church or that one and I talked to the Pastors and they(Pastors) are caught in the evil web, I see it in their eyes and hear it in their voice, if they were smart they would quit, RUN from Evil, RUN from it or become a part of it. Do they think God can be mocked? Do they think God is Blind? The first symptom is they become GOOD, NO ONE IS GOOD but God May He be praised, the next is the one you mention here, they begin finding ways to entertain themselves, THIS IS WHEN PEOPLE SHOULD WAKE UP, but they don't! They are under Dark power! STAY AWAY FROM THEM OR PERISH WITH THEM!
I THANK JESUS IN WHOM I TRUST, MAY HE BE GREATLY PRAISED
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Johnston for this powerful message........ I listen to all your messages....We must stand fast.......The Gospel is spreading throughout the world........ There is persecution, and saints are suffering and murdered........Jesus warned over and over, There would be Tribulation, suffering. If the World Hates us, it's because they hate the Truth. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ....... We will suffer with Christ, for Christ, that He WILL be Glorified and every knee Will bow to Him......... If you can tell me more about this shi kina glory.... I've heard Pastor Arnold Murray from Shepherds Chapel in Arkansas, but I think he's teaching false doctrine, another Gospel, and I use the KJV and it's not anywhere in the scriptures..... I'm just very careful to be aware of titles of our Lord God, like some Christians believe that the all merciful one, is the same God of Christianity, and that is blasphemy!!!! Islam is not of the seedline of Isaac but of Ishmael. They had the same father, but not mother. Hagar-Ishmael, Sarah-Issac........ Abraham is the father of many nation's. It's written in God's Word...... I would be grateful for more information about the Glory you spoke about. Thank you so much!!
Great Sermon! The Church was greatly persecuted in the first 300 hundred yrs . Many christians lost their lives and the church grew greatly.
Ask yourself why (their are exceptions) isnt the church persecuted today? The church is no threat, the preachers are afraid to preach Paul's gospel. There are many reasons, one is they dont want to offend anyone. This why sovereign grace isnt preached and taught. Pastor Rubino, I got some news for you, it aint going get better. The Joel Osteens of the world will continue to thrive. Why? VERY few are teaching sound doctrine.
Great Sermon! So very true, Pastor Johnson. My beloved church went through a most painful split because our new young pastor decided to quit preaching and Start entertaining the younger generation. Sadly, the elders followed suit, men who I had thought to be mature leaders. They left and we of the older generation stayed behind. To the praise of God, solid preaching has returned and we are in the process of rebuilding a biblical sound church.
Short & to a very powerful point! This pastor really knows how to say a lot in a very short time. He has very powerful sermons. He does read them and that may deter you at first but please listen and give him a chance. Maybe more pastors need to write out what God gives them and read it. Then they wouldn't insert a bunch of useless idle words just to fill an hour!
An Urgent Call to Prayer Time is so short! Many will die in their sin right here in America if the church does not heed God's call to fast and pray for America. His judgement will fall swiftly and many will not have another chance. Instead they will go into eternity to face the horrors of hell. Pray, intercede, stand in the gap.....for your families, friends, neighbors and co-workers who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We, the church of Jesus Christ, have His mandate to Pray and be bold in our efforts to share His salvation message while there is breath in our bodies. Hear the urgent call of His Spirit!!! Time is exceedingly short!
