The Nations are a drop in the bucket before Him Thank you for preaching this; so few pastors speak out against the unholy adoration of the military.
...many American soldiers are dying all over the world and going to hell...the people in the U.S. they are "protecting" are also dying and going to hell...and so many of the occupied people in the Middle East.
Christ's death is the only death that saves ANYONE. Apart from Him, life is vanity.
Well Said! I don't think this message has earned you an American-Patriot-of-the-Month award, but I do think you get the badge for Commonsense Thinking. And by your talk of the Lord and His Gospel, methinks you are a citizen of the Kingdom. Keep on telling like it is.
We need more We tried to order 100 of these - but we haven't heard back - we are hoping to have them before Resurrection Day - can you send instructions for ordering to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks!
Great Sermon! Peter's confession of Christ (Matt 16:16) makes absolutely certain that he is born again and thus already in possession of eternal life (I John 5:1) at the time of v16. His subsequent denial of a fundamental tenet of the gospel, the crucifixion of Christ, both before it happened (Matt 16:22) and after it had happened (Mark 16:14) stand as an ironclad proof that the gospel does NOT regenerate men. The Lord quickens whom he will without any assistance from man whatsoever (John 3:8). Belief of the gospel is a lagging indicator of a grace already imparted in sovereign regeneration, not a prerequisite to obtaining eternal life.
Perhaps Paul said it best: "But is now made MANIFEST by the appearing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality TO LIGHT through the gospel." (II Tim 1:10) Christ gives life, the gospel gives the light of information to those who have the spiritual eyes to see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).
Powerful, Beautiful Sermon! Brother Hey's presention was almost too much to grasp about God's work in our life. His explantion was so deep that I'll have to listen to this one or two more times soon, to absorb it all. What a wonderful, powerful God we have. Thank you Jesus Christ for dying for me.
Great Sermon! Absolutely beautiful sermon! How blessed we are that our Father loves us so! As you said, intellectually we know it, but you had such a touching way of describing it to our hearts. My family and I thank you so much for your words, and guidance.
Great Sermon! I think this is the best sermon I have ever heard and may have the greatest impact on my life. I never thought of Jesus as the MOST Forsaken One, forsaken by his Father to save us, and forsaken by all of us every time we turn our backs on Him and sin against Him. I hope that thinking about this will help me to love Him more and hopefully help to kill the temptations to sin against the Beautiful Loving Perfect Forsaken One.
