modern day Puritan thinking, love it! thanks Joe you practice what you preach, you're one who understands time is precious so you don't waste pulpit time with fluff and "seeker" trash but preach necessary food, I'm sure BOL Fellowship is a gymnasium and not a massage parlor!
Church Warning When you hear 2 Chronicles 7:14 recited, which part is omitted? "and turn from their (our) wicked ways"! America is addicted to wicked ways, and the church is no longer a SANCTUARY from evil.
Intimidation over the "separation of church and state" has produced compromise that SEPARATES the Church FROM GOD!
Great Sermon! An excellent message addressing the newest form of an old error that seems to come up in every generation ... the doctrine of the "three ways."
1)The super-Christian or "Radical" 2) The average Christian; and 3) The Unbeliever.
The Bible teaches that there are TWO WAYS - you are either "in Christ" or "in Adam!" The average Christian is called to a life of radical obedience to simple commands. There are no tiers or secondary classes in Christianity.
Great Sermon! I missed this during the Christmas season, but that's not really relevant to the hearing of it. This is really good and from a slightly different angle with perspective of the Holy Spirit. Couple things occurred to me as I listened. Years back when God mercifully encountered me through His Son and I instantly saw Who Christ Is and why I always saw Him hanging on that crucifix, from that point I realize I gradually saw who Mary is vs my former Catholic teaching. Another thing I've always thought in the recesses of my mind as I've listened to my fav and regular preachers here became clearer. What could make a regular man, just a man with clay feet, become so enamored, so excited, so totally absorbed with this Book that takes over his life to preach week in, week out for the rest of his life? No one less than the Holy Spirit. What could take my imperfect life and make it one that hungers and thirst after righteousness and holiness? No one less than God the Holy Spirit. This blessed me. Thank you. "Christmas in July!"
Great Sermon! This is the best sermon I've ever heard in my life. This sermon is all meat, and will force you to examine your super-Christian status in a revealing light, you will learn why you crashed off that cliff, when you thought you were privately, "one of God's last few real Christians."
Great Sermon! I was very blessed by your message. God is good even in the darkness no matter how dark our days may seem. This message really encouraged. Pray, press in and wait up on the Lord. Deliverance is coming!
Ditto ..just wanted to echo the previous comments.This sermon is like a fresh, cold drink of water from the water fountain. So many churches are parched and could greatly benefit from hearing this.One is hard pressed to find a local church that isn't offering up the latest counterfeit nonsense that passes off as worship.
Great Sermon! Appreciated your message very much - needy for today's church here in the UK where we
are faced with the sodomite juggernaut all around. The true church needs to raise its head for the truths of the gospel. SOLI DEO GLORIA
Powerful Sermon! This is an eye-opening sermon -- one that probably will not be heard in 99% of our churches. True Christians should be prepared for very difficult and persecuting times until Christ takes us home either by death or the Rapture. This sermon will separate the believers from the lost churchgoers who compose most of the church pews today. I am study the OT and NT deeply each day and am growing greatly as a follower of our Lord and Savior -- it's such a great comfort. God Bless Pastor Joseph for his deep insight and comforting message.
