Great Sermon! How do you do that, Brian? Oops, asking the wrong person. How do You do that, dear Holy Spirit? Take a mere clay man and when he opens his mouth, You pour forth words tingling, shimmering, empowered, stabbing, ablaze with Your anointing and Your presence?? How does another mere clay vessel take it all in? My Lord and my God, how do I adore such a King?
The Spirit at Work Found this message during a very stressful week. Not only did it put my fears and recent events in perspective it reminded me of how much my Father loves me - and the lengths I go to ignore Him. Thank you for this faithful message.
Good overview of Owen's works This was a good overall sketch for me of Owen's works. Not necessarily any thing new, but I am always reminded that when I examine myself in the light of what Owen wrote on sanctification, I feel like I haven't hardly begun to live these things out with the earnestness that Owen reminds us is necessary. I am so without excuse. I have narrated the most unique number of titles of Owen into Audio-book format. From all of volumes 6 and 7, to just last night finishing up his commentary on Augustine's conversion in his work on the Holy Spirit. (Book 3, chapter 6) The most detailed conversion testimony in church history scientifically analyzed by the greatest experimental Puritan commentator in church history. One is left with little desire to groan that so few Christians around us hardly understand these things, let alone prioritize them in their own lives. Owen leaves us moaning and bewailing our own low attainments in Grace and then points us to our only Remedy, Jesus Christ.
What Do They Say About Jesus? Thank you for pointing out that a religion, no matter how monotheistic that religion is, if the worshippers do not believe in the Sonship and deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, then the god of that religion is not the one true GOD of the Bible.
Great Sermon! I really appreciate this exegetical sermon. There was no personal application it was just all about Jesus and mostly about his humiliation. I always see the great, great love of Christ when I think about how deeply humiliated his earthly life and crucifixion were. And He did it all willingly for sinners like me. I didn't know it was possible to feel pity for Judas, but I did. I think highlighted in this sermon is the deep wickedness of the Pharisees over his. And today you still see the Pharisees sending out spies to bait them, and tell lies about them if that doesn't work and they will always find a Pilate to go along with the marginalizing and " death" of the saints. Jesus never sought their company unless invited. Really made me think again. Thank you.
Great Sermon! A very excellent and once again, interesting sermon. So rich, you really do need to listen to it over and over. I have a new appreciation of Noah's faith and God's faithfulness despite the instruments He has to work with.
Great Sermon! I second the excellent comment. Very thought provoking and interesting sermon. The story of hagar always bothered me, as i never understood what the blessing was for her. This is a giid explaination. I also find it interesting he says it's never a good idea to move east. Indeed. I had actually heard another person mention this out of the Bible. Oh, bitter, bitter pill it is. Also bitter is to suffer from your poor reactions to others evil behavior, but there is no exemption from that either.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your teaching all this I thought you did a fair job of representing various views, I am a postmill however I found your exposition useful. Here's my suggestion for thinking through eschatology, remember the structure of resurrection and the already not yet. Christ was raised, resurrection came into the world with new creation, and there is a consummation. Virtually every statement about the kingdom in the New Testament and the Old Testament for that matter regarding the new covenant, is a growth image.
