Great Sermon! Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil(Zep 1:12).
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God (1 Pet. 4:17).
The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16).
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain(Jam 1:26);
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell (Jam 3:6);
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:(1 Pet 3:10);
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men(Titus 3:2).
Prayer and FASTING The Authorized King James Version which i know and believe to be GOD's preserved word for the last 500 years reveals the truth about this passage of Scripture. With all due respect to you Mr Knapp, you are using a "new age" Bible version that has been tampered with by the very enemy you warn about in this sermon. Fasting is all through the Scriptures and a diligent study of the word will reveal to you the significance of our LORD's statement in Mark 9:29 AKJV. Also i exhort you and every reader of this reply to study(2Tim2:15)the 2 scholars Westcott and Hort who translated the 1811 Revised Version. You will find that not only did they translate the New Testament on a "new" Greek Text that was NOT the Textus Receptus but both characters were into necromancy and had other ungodly beliefs. It all goes downhill from this 1811 Version right down to the abominable new age NIV per Version that has approx 64,000 words not found in the AKJV. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children"-Hosea4:6
Great Sermon! Very good series of lessons on John 3 vs. 16. I recommend each of these lessons if one is interested on what Jesus is teaching us in John 3. I appreciate your study on this very important subject matter. It is very dangerous for people to go around telling people that God loves them.
Amen! If Adrian Peterson is in trouble of child abide using these measures, I too am guilty of "loving" my children by discipline. I will show authorities what abuse is if they try to take my children away or tell me who to raise my kids.
The public school system is the child of government and it needs much chastening. They vote for the murder of babies and get upset when you hit a child with a switch. This world is crazy.
A major concern of mine is what do they think is going to be happening behind those closed doors? Very serious times we are living today. I expect a new onslaught of gender neutral restrooms popping up all over and more lawsuits, etc.
Truthful message. I can't believe this pervert society of ours. America's cup of indignation is just about full. I hate the fact that most of us try to "identify" with Christianity, when we live like hell itself. Our sin will find us out.
Pray for this nation people.
Great Response! I like your nutshell response to the consenting adult thing, "GOD does not consent." I never thought of putting that way. The first and greatest commandment is to love the Lord our GOD with our whole being. That includes our adulthood, doesn't it?
Thank You Your presentation on repentance and the gospel was clear. This message is not limited to certain people but is for all people. And it is a reminder to Christians not to wear our salvation like it's a badge we've won.
Response to GayJimmy Yes Jimme. God loves us all. Even the gays, lesbians, and transgendered folk out there (you forgot to include those who enjoy bestiality (Lev 18:23), liars, fornicators, etc). He even loves those with such hate in their hearts that they feel the need to put others down for who they are - Are you talking about homosexuality supporters that hate those who stand against homosexuality? As you can see, there are many many out there - who hate in their hearts Christians that hate what God hates. Who are we to judge, as creatures of God? Well we are creatures that were told to judge with righteous judgment (John 7:24). Yes, i think we learned this sort of thing in pre-school - respect other people. Yes. respecting those that stand against homosexuality which God abominates.
Great Sermon! To be born, to live my alloted years, to die and go down to the grave without ever knowing or experiencing genuine revival, how deeply sad. II'd not thought of it till listening to this message. Look upon us with pity, Lord God.
