Great Sermon! This was well delivered. The unveiling of the one who is worthy causes the believer to humble themselves in praise and worship. It is efficacious to the reader and hearer who should realize that "It is finished!"
Thank you for the work you put in in studying.
Great Sermon! This was seriously a sermon worth listening to - on the tricks that the adversary plays mostly on Christians or religious people. I think the subject is well worth exploring as knowing this stuff makes a Christian much more resilient to the attacks - as he says and i just have to repeat it - satan is not clever - he's just old - hallelujah !
Great Sermon! This is the greatest sermon I have every heard. It brought today's word for the future and how we should be loving at home. All was for the family- on how we should behave in a time like this.- and for the future- we are aliens here- heaven is our home.
Great Sermon! This was a wonderful sermon, that continues to speak to my heart. I have attended Grace Church for the past 2 weeks, and find that pastor Phil is a very charismatic preacher. I give God thanks for preachers like him who is not afraid to tell the truth of salvation.
Great Sermon! This was excellent. I love Daniel. I need to come back to Grace Church. Thank you for the good sermon. I have a Quechan dictionary for Pastor Phil.
Thank you again. I could never the the good sermon you gave. It touched me very much.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this timely message. I have been torn about confronting my co-workers at my new job on some issues, this message just confirmed what issues I have dealt with them about and now am dealing with the hate they have for me because of my stand on truth. I am sure God will still bless my efforts in trying to minister to them.
Thank you again for always keeping it real.
Great Sermon! God has been convicting me on my pray lessness. I have been too busy to pray and I have grown discouraged in prayer. I have prayed for 26 years for a son who is an alcoholic and I have a daughter who is gay, and I have carried them to The Lord for all these years and they don't change. I lost confidence that God answer pray and became skeptical. This is the 1st of the 4 sermons, but i will listen to them all and make God and prayer my priority.
My thoughts Meditation on nothingness is not an invitation for the devil. The goal for this type of meditation is to move past all the thoughts of the mind which, for most, arise and fall without much conscious attention. From what I have learned on meditation there are two main forms: single pointed and compassion. Single pointed meditation is to sharpen the concentration and awareness of the mind and compassion meditation is to develop equanimity toward everyone and everything.
Prayer is a form of meditation whereas the participant usually mixes both types of meditations; being singly focused on God and trying to develop compassion for others.
Many times in this sermon there are aspects of buddhism that are negated or mocked because of misunderstanding or non-understanding of the content.
The koan's are not nonsensical but are metaphor that hold a hidden truth only grasped through deep contemplation. I am an artist and from this I have learned that while one may see a shape in a particular way for much time but after prolonged work with a shape, new ways to see the form emerge.
I have done a 10 day meditation retreat where I spoke nothing for 9 days and meditated for 10hrs a day. The shape doesn't change, our perception does.
