Question Is this sermon teaching that those on the left were true Christians who lost their salvation because of unfaithfulness? Matt 25:32/33 sheep/right goats/left
From your PDF: We read in Matthew 25:41-43: ‚ÄúThen [that is after they had come into Christ‚Äôs presence ‚ÄĒ seeing Him sit upon the throne of His glory ‚ÄĒ seeing the crown of righteousness placed upon the head of the righteous] shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.‚ÄĚ
Until then they had not understood the damning nature of the sin of being
unprofitable. Look how they reasoned in verse 44: ‚ÄúThen shall they also
answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a
stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?‚ÄĚ
Continuing in verses 45-46 we read: ‚ÄúThen shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.‚ÄĚ

Many blessings to all who are involved in this ministry for Christ's matchless sake and glory, amen!
Great Sermon! Ralph , I have wondered quite a few times , of why this once great nation has devolved into it's present state. Your concise and hard hitting sermon, that listed the many issues affecting U.S. ; is very impressive ! You have been obviously inspired and ordained to Our Lords Ministry , Thank You for your service. I appreciate your dedication. Cordially Yours, Nick .....
Great Sermon! Excellent message teaching what it means to walk by faith and not by sight. Pastor Bouma emphasis that God does not work in the same way repeatedly so that we cannot trust in means but must always look to and seek the Lord.
Excellent Sermon! Thank You Lord, and many thanks and great blessings to Your servants for speaking Your heart to the saints.
Crucifying the flesh is not easy as we travel along the straight and narrow path,but as it is written, not by might,not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord,amen!
Great Sermon! Pastor, you have validated, of what GOD has convicted me. I heard Him the first time, I heard Him again, and now I tremble. He has spoken thrice to me. This is a rebuke to me, from GOD. I hear Him. Thank you! Keep on preaching to us.
Powerful Sermon! This was very good and so relevant for today. Moab was known, says the speaker, for its sensuality and idolatry (descendents of Lot's incestuous daughters). Orpah could not leave it, she wanted to follow but was 'torn between two loves', so turned back, to "her people and gods"! Is not America like unto Moab? Isn't American Christianity like Orpah? Repentance from ungodly lusts and hand-made religion, crucifying the flesh is required to follow Grace fully to become God's Christian people. Bouma's comments about "bread followers" and "broad way" Christianity was indicting.
Also, God showed his Providence in Salvation in this, by Noami's sojourning in Moab during the famine, in that it drew Ruth out, and Ruth the Moabitess, and Boaz, begat the lineage of David, who delivered his people and reigned as King, as a type of Jesus Christ, whose earthly lineage sprang from David, and thus Ruth too. Grace is powerful to save and revealed by its effects upon persons!
Needed Sermon! This sermon directly challenges the false and loose talk about "grace" and the 'doctrines of grace'. Paul warned that false teachers would come who "turn the Grace of God into lasciviousness (antinomianism)". The term "gracious" has been sentimentalized or used as a term of tolerance and being non-judgmental. Jesus Christ proclaimed "you brood of vipers" and "woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!", yet was "full of Grace and truth". Grace powerfully overcomes sin, does not acquiesce to it.
But here the speaker talks of what "the Grace of God teaches us", i.e. to "live soberly, righteously, godly in the present age". It is not silly, humorous, fun loving, and tolerant toward worldliness, but self-denying, righteous and justly contrary to it. Grace is powerful and changing, not the sentimental false "love" of the world.
Great Sermon! This is truly lovely sermon focusing on the sufferings of Christ. These are much more than the physical sufferings but the utter heartbreak and brokenness he suffered as the people and even His friends rejected Him. Christ is altogether lovely. This sermon helps us to bear our sufferings more in the spirit of Christ and to look to Him.
Wonderful! This sermon is such a help for those who are waiting for a promise that has been delayed in it's fulfilment and even looks humanly impossible. The Scriptures are brought to life as as the experiences of God's servants in their waiting on the Lord. Listen carefully and you will be helped.
Great Sermon! What is so very shocking to me is that my African mom reminded me three times before she passed; "You want to remember Lot's wife. Don't look back, don't look back. Lot's wife turned to a pillar of salt." Now it means something a whole lot more than it did then. Thank you,I understand.
Important Sermon! What a relevant message in context of today's nominal Christianity:
"They profess that they know God; but *in works they deny him*, being abominable, disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate".--Titus 4:16
Christian "belief" is more than mere "profession" and actual personal redemption. Works are the evidence of true faith, true believing, true disciples, real Christians, and *personal redemption*. "If you love me you will keep my commandments", said Jesus, and "if you keep my words you are truly disciples of mine".
Disobedience to Christ's commandments, and God's laws, is *practical heresy*, no matter the orthodoxy of profession.
