One of the best sermons I've ever heard! This message from 2007 around the 4th of July, is still relevant, if not even more so, this Independence Day in the year of our Lord 2015. Crisply delivered. Thank you for this sound preaching which has never been nmore timely.
Outstanding Sermon! To realize how much worse and more atheistic our nation has become in only 8 years since this sermon was preached, it is frightening to see each year getting worse than the previous. Unless revival happens soon, True Christianity will be stripped of any meaning for our people and nation. I foresee the Holy Bible being criticized as a hateful book and offensive to our culture and will have laws preventing from being part of our church liberties. The Rapture is the only possible solution to True Christians who have Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. America's best days have long past and the only future we have is in the Holy Scriptures. Pray and study the Holy Bible more each day for your soul's peace.
Challengiing Sermon! This message makes you examine your heart and make repentance the major ingredient to find salvation in its deepest meaning. Repentance open up your heart to accept God's offer to see and reject your sinful soul and be a child of God. Too many churches only give a skeleton picture of salvation if there is no repentance which adds a pure heart to one's body. Without repentance there is no salvation. With repentance there is forgiveness and acceptance in God's eyes. Too many people are living an empty and lost life because their church is not preaching the ingredient of repentance.
Great Sermon! This is so powerful. I don't know how that works, but this really should be a featured sermon. In fact, all of the sermons in this series of Things of Importance are excellent. Thank you, Bro. Russ.
Great Sermon! "...My hope for eternity rests in Thy hand,
My heart deeply longs for that fair better land,
Where one day complete in Thyself I shall stand;
My hope, my hope is in Thee."
Oh! Christ , My only hope, my strength , my comforter... My all in all.
Strong Sermon! Brother Russ does a thorough job discussing this very difficult (for some people) topic. But looking back into my life, I see where I had no desire to seek Jesus Christ and His Truth. No, my salvation had to be through the Doctrine of Election -- that is so clear to me today. I thank God that He so elected me to be one of God's children.
a note of revision I went back over the Hebrew and I don't know where I got the idea that bet, yod, tav, lamed, he, mem spells house of battle, maybe because it's close to milhama, which is battle, but there's nothing hidden in the hebrew as far as I can tell at a second glance.
Thank you for this beautiful sermon Dear Pastor Russ,
I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your thought provoking, and powerful message. My mother passed away 15 years ago, just four month's after my husband and I were married. My father went home on December 21, 2012 after a long fight with leukemia and MERSA. I deal with doubt and despair on a daily basis, and I was just looking for a sermon to encourage me. By God's grace and guidance, I found your message, "In My Father's House." I was deeply moved and encouraged by your sermon, being reminded that this earth is but a vapor, that we are only here for a very short while, less than a blink in time, really. Thank you so much for reminding me of our eternal home, and for lifting my spirit. May God richly bless you and your family!
