Great Sermon! Thank you, Pastor, I see so much of Jonah's attitudes in myself and other believers. It is humbling to consider that we are like the prophet, running from God when we should be obedient. It was very much cause for reflection.
Interesting lecture Today I listened to these two messages and one by Dr. Michael Haykin covering the same subject. SID=6113125312 I have been a Reformed Baptist almost 30 years but I am finally just really studying our history. I am more familiar with Presbyterian and Congregational history, and this helped me to know why. The fact is, there is a dark period in our history in the 18th and 19th centuries. A lot of hyper-calvinism marked us, and the fact that the Great Awakenings were jettisoned by these pastors. The history is not totally discouraging. I have in my library a Baptist Magazine from the 1820s that seems sound. And we had great missionary examples, Judson, Carey, and others. But where is the experimental theology in the 18th century penned by Baptist theologians? Do we know anyone BESIDES John Gill, Abraham Booth and Isaac Backus? Anyway, Pastor Jeff, I have only had the pleasure of seeing you once, and that from the distance. Come back to Grand Rapids sometime! T M S
Great Sermon! can u please do a study of bible translations and what english bibles are based on what manuscripts?which manuscripts did the church use throughout the ages?why do we see a change in those manuscripts when it comes to the newer versions of the english bible?why are there so many verses missing out of the new translations?
Great Sermon! 2 Kings 18
New American Standard Bible: 4 He removed the high places and broke down the sacred pillars and cut down the Asherah. He also broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the sons of Israel burned incense to it; and it was called Nehushtan
Great Sermon! I appreciate so much your preaching, Pastor Powell. Thank you for your faithful studies through the book of Jonah. They've been a blessing to me. Pray for my city, would you, brethren, as I pray for you!
Inspiring Sermon Sermons like this one inspire. You are one exacting sergeant; but, I appreciate it and admire you for it.
A Most Excellent Sermon! Sometimes life is just so hard ... so INCREDIBLY hard. Thank you, Sir, for mentioning the following four blessings we know now IN THIS VERY LIFE:
1. We increasingly grow in our understanding of God's Words. As we obey, we learn.
2. We have true gospel communion with the Trinity.
3. We have greater assurance in praying.
4. We are transformed from glory to glory.
Hearing this part of your message confronted me with an area where I lacked faith. Thank you for your faithful preaching, Dr. Pipa!!
God bless you, Sir.
Simple and Clear Thank you, Dr. Bartosch. God bless you profoundly. Yes, 'easy believism' has cost much but thank you for ministering to God's church against the other myth: that we can 'lose our salvation'.
1 Corinthians 1:4-9*;
1 Peter 1:3-5;
even your unplanned Luke 15;
John 10:28; and
Thank you for speaking SIMPLY with TENDERNESS this time, Dr. Bartosch.
BRAVO, Baptist Brother Dr. B. makes applications using "applicational inferences", I believe he called it.
This morning a "strange providence" (the kind that's perhaps behind such logic) led me to find a diff. btw. the WMCF and LBCF:
WCF Chapter 1: "6. The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man's salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence MAY BE DEDUCED from Scripture: unto which nothing at any time is to be added etc."
LBC Chapter 1: "The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for His own glory, man's salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down or necessarily contained in the Holy Scripture, to which nothing is to be added at any time, either by new revelation of the Spirit, or by the traditions of men."
Subtle, but big, huh?
I'm proud of you, Joseph!
Great Sermon! You are indeed "gonna 'Good News' it all the time".
May God give to you THAT kind of man described here. Sunshine prays for a man like that, too. God will provide.
What a loving speaker!
wow ... Wow ... uh, Gabe, Joseph ... WOW Men,
You know what to do... I think it's not a coincidence, Gentlemen, that good 'ol Yahoo posted this very day an article entitled "Record-breaking 405-pound tuna caught". [Monday, Dec. 6]
Reel in Powell. Move it or lose it because South Haven, Michigan WILL snag 'em if you don't. Okay, we don't have a church yet;... but, mark my words: Mark, might, Might, MIGHT (mind you) LOVE JESUS as much as I do and THAT'S what I'm going to find for MY TOWN.
This feisty fish will out pray you for Parson Powell.
Encouraging Sermon! This sermon teaches that there are several motivations to duty in 1 Peter 1:1-13 -
1. election, predestination;
2. new birth, being born again, a changed life; [DV, more and more]
3. future reward/ "UNDEFILED. UNFADING INHERITANCE"; [loved that one, thank you]
4. testings, refining us to gold; [true truth]
5. increased love for Christ despite not seeing Him face-to-face; and,
6. prophetic realities which have led us and help us to persevere.
"THEREFORE: Prepare sober-mindedly for vigorous and sustain exertion!"
[I'd like to hear more from this man, please.]
