Â¶ The exact spot of the famous stronghold that Antiochus IV used in the second century BC to control Jerusalem and monitor activity on the Temple Mount has long been unknown due to a paucity of architectural remains that can be traced to the Greek presence in the capital." etc.
A very encouraging sermon! Dear brother in Christ,
Thank you so much for this insightful and encouraging message on prayer.
I will view my prayer life and on-going prayer requests very differently from now on.
Very Good Message! This message is about more than just the daughters! There's so much that can be gleamed from the O.T. historical stories.
From the Sermon Details:
"The story of Zelophehad's daughters illustrates the Biblical truth that true freedom is only found within God's revealed will.
Because of the land redistribution at the time of the Jubilee, Zelophehad's daughters had freedom to marry whomever they chose, but only within the tribe of Manasseh (Numbers 36:6).
This principle of freedom within the law of God is also expressed in the New Testament where we have freedom to marry, but only in the Lord (1 Corinthians 7:39).
The Jubilee also underscores the concept that freedom finds its true expression within the law. The Jubilee prevents generational poverty, on the one hand, but it also prevents one generation from passing on massive wealth, on the other. The land always had to be restored to its original owners no matter how poor they had become.
The Jubilee is also a picture of the Gospel (Isaiah 61:1-4; Luke 4:16- 21). The Lord Jesus not only takes away the debt of sin, but he offers restoration and a new beginning."
May the Lord bless you with His mark! Pastor Vincent,
Thank you for your ministry not just to your local congregation, but also to other branches of the "true, c a tholic, and apostolic Church" beyond. Your testimony is a sobering and encouraging reminder to us veteran saints. It is also a useful message in sharing the Gospel with those who don't know Him. Thank you.
Great Sermon! Just wanted to let you know that your message gave me a lot to think about - and an extended time of prayer and repentance with the Lord. Truly we are no better than Saul or Samson lest we cling to the promises and victory of Jesus. Thank you for this message.
Great Sermon! My children and I are reading the New Testament together every morning. In that process it has been refreshing to hear the things they question and interesting to discuss those things in depth with them. They are ages 10 and 8. A couple weeks ago, my daughter read about women covering their heads in 1 Corith. and asked me about it. I told her that I didn't have a good answer, we talked to our pastor, he also said he didn't have a good answer. While I wasn't seeking out a sermon on this topic, God lead me to it anyway. What you preached is fascinating and I am so thankful you shared it! I am excited to research, pray, and study this topic further on my own and with my daughter. Although I do not look forward to wearing a hat - I do look forward to more fully understanding God's will for me and how that is related to wearing a hat during church, etc. Thank you for preaching outside of the box!
Great Sermon! Daniel vii, 11, 26.
When the 1260 years appointed for Antichrist's duration, and commencing from AD606, when he became Universal Bishop,
or from 756AD, when he became a Civil Prince, shall have expired, when the Protestant witnesses for Christ have, by the neglect
of parents, masters, and by the seduction of Arminian preachers, the Popish missionaries, been drawn back to the essentials of
Popery, living altogether ignorant of the experimental light, power, and comforts of gospel truths, or, if steadfast and faithful shall, in finishing their testimony, be almost utterly destroyed by persecution and murder, and have consumed in that condition three years and half about AD1866, or 2016, and when the nations have sufficiently warned by the preaching of the gospel to
renounce their abominations and forsake their communion, God shall, in the most tremendous manner, punish Antichrist for their idolatries, murder of his saints, and other unnumbered abominations.
