GOD'S VALUED TREASURE !! For all who enjoy this sermon preached by Pastor Chompff, I recommend that you read this sermon by Arthur W. Pink entitled, God's Jewels. Here is link to it: http://www.gracegems.org/Pink/gods_jewels.htm
Many Wonderful Truths The term 'carnal christians' sounds oxymoronic.This is clearly evidenced by the verses in Romans 8:6-8. And we are not co-workers with God in God's husbandry. The false understanding that we work with God comes from the wrong translations of the kjv translators. Thank you Pastor for faithfully interpreting God's word. All Glory Be To Him!
The Shepherd, The Door, The Porter When Jesus spoke of the Shepherd and the Door, he clearly spoke of himself with "I am the door" verses 7 and 9. But "to him the porter openeth"---definite article for "the porter" as for "the shepherd, and for "the door." But who is the Porter who openeth for the prophesied Shepherd and was not the Porter also prophesied in the OT? And although not clearly mentioned by Pastor Chompff, I cannot but believe the porter/forerunner none other than the same person who proclaimed in John 1, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." Singular, definite articles---no need for mistaken identity! But as Pastor Chompff says,Jesus spoke parables that they which claimed to see, "might be made blind" (John 9:39)and the blind cannot see no matter how obvious.
A WORD IN SEASON, HOW GOOD IT IS !! This is a word that is advice and counsel to such who stand in need of it, exhortation and instruction to those that want it, comfort to those that are distressed. For me, all of the above is needed for the work God has me doing in His vineyard. I'm ploughing in very hard ground!
BLESSED SURETY RECONCILING! The tenses of Numbers 23:21 are noteworthy, as shall not behold is not the same as "hath not beheld" and "neither hath he seen" is not the same as shall not see. God's past tenses swallow all "contingencies" giving no allowance for future changes. Appreciated Mr. Sjoerdsma bringing sweet contemplation which I coupled with Paul's commentary: NOT imputing their trespasses unto them. Here is real sin with a real possessive pronoun, "their", yet NOT imputed unto "them"! How can this be? In a word SUBSTITUTE, in a word SURETY.
A WORKS GOSPEL IS HERESY !! In this sermon and all his sermons, Pastor Chompff is faithful to point out that salvation is GODâ€™S WORK ALONE and not by good works. It is the unequivocal teaching of scriptures like Ephesians 2:8,9 (KJV) and Romans 6:23 (KJV) that salvation is A GIFT which is not contingent on human effort. There are those who love to teach a â€śworks gospelâ€ť based on the teachings found in James. But, they and their followers are standing on shaky ground. When James speaks of works, he speaks of good works resulting FROM salvation and not the other way around. God, through James, declares that those who have received the â€śgiftâ€ť of salvation have good works that follow (Abraham and Rahab are mentioned as examples of people who demonstrated their faith GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD by their righteous deeds.) The plain teaching of the inspired Word of God is that salvation is â€śNOT BY WORKS of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghostâ€ť Titus 3:5(KJV). Over and over, the Bible proclaims that good deeds CANNOT merit us salvation. Reject not this truth and chase after the lie that is put forth in the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi and the teachings of other heretics. Heed God's WARNING through Pastor Chompff.
Great Sermon! Eureka, after hearing Pastor Chompff for 7 sermons, I do believe here a man who upholds God's Word above his own words. Did the helpless paralytic believe in order to be forgiven, or was he freely forgiven antecedently and graced to consequently believe (Phil. 1:29)? Does not I John 5:1 give the answer in Greek and English? "Ye must be born again" is NOT an imperative, but rather an absolute INDICATIVE. Eureka---a preacher who does not give a To Do List on how to be born again! Eureka!
Great Sermon! For the purposeful, the end of things is always the first in intention, though it be last in execution. One God of eternal purpose, thus ONE BOOK, the eternal word of immutability. Amen.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE TITLE Asking God to be merciful to anyone is asking our Lord Jesus christ to suffer the equivalent of hell in the cross for that person. What a clear sound mind of God given to His children regardless of age or any theological qualification. This wisdom from above is purely a gift from God which has not any part in human endeavors. This He gives to whomsoever He pleases to give. Praise the Lord for His riches are so great that no eyes have seen nor no ears have heard unless this privilege is given of God. ALL GLORY BE TO HIM.
HONORING THE WEAKER VESSELS A woman who fears the Lord is one who does perfect housework & who manages the outside world - IS OUR GOD A GENDER BIASED GOD? Our pastor has honored OUR INFINITELY WISE GOD by rightly representing Him. Thank God there are still churches left in the world who honor women by placing them in their rightful places. LET GOD ALONE BE EXALTED.
THE WISDOM OF GOD The WISDOM OF GOD is shining brightly, much brighter than sun, in comparing these two parables in THE BOOK, THE BIBLE, in two different places that are Proverbs 30:17 and 1 1Corinthians 14:21,22. God's wisdom is incomparable. This statement by the preacher that Abraham was married to Jezebel is a slip of the tongue. Lord bless your word.
Must Be Learned Principles and Doctrines These truths will set us free from long held notions and Unbiblical doctrines. Are you interested in finding out if your name is in the the Bible or not? Find out by listening to this sermon. Thank you Lord for setting us free by truth. Lord your love is incomprehensible! Bless your servant Lord!
Concealed Matter Great exploration of truths on reprobates. The answer to this puzzling question: why God has created the reprobates in this world is explained based on scriptures so that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.Praise the Lord for all His doings are marvelous.
Great Clarification The COVENANT given to Israelites was not DO IT YOURSELF as they understood it to be. We cannot circumcise our heart, cannot repent on our own, cannot obey the commandments perfectly. This is the work of God alone. The then leaders taught the people only about keeping the law including the ceremonial laws. That is why Jesus asked the Pharisees to learn about Himself in Hosea 6:6(Matthew 9:13). They lacked in the knowledge of God because they were not known of Him. And He didn't regard them as His children. God made a new covenant with a new group of people. Thank you Pastor for explaining to us, those difficult verses in Hebrews 8:9,10. Praise the Lord for His mercy for He didn't leave us to be destroyed of lack of knowledge.
PURE WATER THIS SERIES OF SERMONS ON COVENANT MUST BE FOLLOWED BY BELIEVERS TO GET THE KNOWLEDGE TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE. The first one of this series of sermons talks about The Covenant of Grace and The Covenant of Law in GALATIANS 4. The second in the series is about the only one covenant of Grace in GALATIANS 3. The third in the series is about the Covenant of Grace in old Testament period with ceremonial laws (called the first covenant) and the Covenant of Grace in the New Testament period without the ceremonial laws (called the New covenant) HEBREWS 8. THIRSTY?? Still more information is coming up. Lord lead us beside the still waters.
Wow, Very Delicious Incomprehensible! Mind blowing information. God's grace "was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began"!! 2 Timothy 1:9.The most exhilarating message! Are there two inheritances for us, one in earth and one in heaven? Lord , I simply don't know how to thank you, Use me as you want.
Popular Faith Can a camel be swallowed? It is possible by blind people. This parable by our Lord Jesus Christ, straining out a gnat, and swallowing a camel is beautifully explained by Pastor. Thank you Lord for revealing to us the glorious Gospel of judgement,mercy and faith in the Atoning work of Christ. Lord bless your word.
