Sermon cont... Whose names are in the book of life; either they were chosen of God from all eternity, or registered and enrolled in the corporation and society to which the privilege of eternal life belongs, alluding to the custom among the Jews and Gentiles of registering the inhabitants or the freemen of the city. So we read of their names being written in heaven (Luke x. 20), not blotting his name out of the book of life (Rev. iii. 5), and of those who are written in the Lamb's book of life, Rev. xxi. 27. Observe, There is a book of life; there are names in that book and not characters and conditions only.

Sermon Phil 4:1-3 I entreat thee also, true yoke-fellow. Who this person was whom he calls true yoke-fellow is uncertain. Some think Epaphroditus, who is supposed to have been one of the pastors of the church of the Philippians. Others think it was some eminently good woman, perhaps Paul's wife, because he exhorts his yoke-fellow to help the women who laboured with him. Whoever was the yoke-fellow with the apostle must be a yoke-fellow too with his friends. It seems, there were women who laboured with Paul in the gospel; not in the public ministry (for the apostle expressly forbids that, 1 Tim. ii. 12, I suffer not a woman to teach), but by entertaining the ministers, visiting the sick, instructing the ignorant, convincing the erroneous. Thus women may be helpful to ministers in the work of the gospel. Now, says the apostle, do thou help them. Those who help others should be helped themselves when there is occasion. "Help them, that is, join with them, strengthen their hands, encourage them in their difficulties."--With Clement also, and other my fellow-labourers. Paul had a kindness for all his fellow-labourers; and, as he had found the benefit of their assistance, he concluded how comfortable it would be to them to have the assistance of others. Of his fellow-labourers he says, cont..
Great Sermon! Keep speaking the truth Larry. There are
few that are doing so
Yes, you may be shut up but God's Word will still prevail.
Man has brought God down to look, act and

My God reigns sovereign and supreme over all. We know that one day every knee shall bow to Him.
Great Sermon! Dear Larry, Rosette and Mark,

Great Sermon! There aren't enough pastors out there calling out the wolves by name. Praise God for Larry's willingness to do so. It's such a pity that Rick Warren now has John Piper in his back pocket.
Great Sermon! I totally agree with this discussion. Although I abhor homosexuality, I stay away from all the hyprocracy that proports to believe in the "true" Gospel. Let us examine ourselves firt.
Great Sermon! I agree with you that even the Jews still have to believe in Christ for salvation...but its also obvious that the church hasn't replaced Israel and that Gods wonderful promises for Israel will be fullfilled.
