Great Sermon! Very good message with many insights from a Biblical and Reformed point-of-view. This nonsense called 'emergent' is a new name for what the serpent told Eve back in the Garden. It is not a Church - because a Church has Christ as it's Head. Matthew 5:19 comes to mind.
Thanks Thanks for the message. When you began I was tempted to shut my computer off again because I felt that since I am not victorious, the sermon wasn't for me. By God's stubborn grace I listened to the whole thing. True, I don't feel victorius, for I've been fighting an internal battle for months with little release, but it is good for my mind to know the truth, being reminded that it is God who will not let me go, and I hope the feelings will come. May God bless your faithful ministry.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Bilkes. This being The 1st Sunday after Epiphany , I was looking for an Epiphany Sermon and that section of the website is woefully lacking. Glad I looked in the Advent section and found this message: "Wise Men Seek the King of the Jews". The way you read the Scripture passage tells me that you actually believe it is God's book. Amen! Thanks. I'd suggest that S.A..com puts this sermon in the Epiphany section of "Sermon's by Topic".
Great hope. Our great God gave Lamech a prophetic message about His plan for the future, so he had a hope to sustain him through the hardness of life. At the same time, we walked hoping in the arrival of the promised Savior. God never let alone his children.
