Lovingly Delivered This pastor has a heart for the glory of God. All of his messages reminds us of God's love towards His own. Also, that all things are for our sakes and for God's glory if we only allow ourselves to use all things to conform us into the image of Christ. We are like sheep being led to a slaughter; to rid us of the "self" occupation. Death must work in us so that life will work in both the believer and unbeliever. Herein is love - a sovereign God causing us to identify with the Lamb; through manifold trials.
Great Sermon! God bless you Pr.Carlson, for bringing the book of Leviticus to life and encouraging new covenant believers to a life of distinctive, and careful holiness by the power of God. May this vision of the call of GOd for his people be the vision of all his people, even one that roots out our carelessness and denial of the power of God in the New covenant to enable us fulfil that which his people of old were commanded but were unable to becaue of the hardness of their heart and unbelief.Thanks for the enphasis of the similarity of our calling. !!!
Great Sermon! I found this series several years ago and have listened to it 6 times since then. Pastor Donnelly's sermons have always been a blessing to me. His uncompromising teaching of the Word is accompanied by compassion, sincerity and due diligence. I have literally listened to every sermon of his that I can find and I thank God for such men.
Great Sermon! Absolutely a Word for Today, whether it was preached in 1983 or not, Albert Martin has given this message with all he had under the power of the Holy Spirit.
We urge everyone to hear it. Now. Send it out, we beg you.
Love in Christ, English Rose and George
Preaching exists! Most so-called preachers are just sermon writers. Writing a sermon is not preaching. This is preaching. I like that worldliness is here preached against for what it is: sin. There is no legalism in exhorting the people of God to godliness and against worldliness. Why do men refuse to preach against worldliness and declare preaching such as this legalism? Because they love the world, and their congregations love the world. "You have to come alongside people" they'll say. "We have to know the culture to engage the culture". "It's okay to spend more time watching sport than you spend in prayer". Nonsense. You have to met with God and then preach what he says in the power of his Spirit because men are going to an actual hell without Christ and his people, whom he bought with his own blood, are committing spiritual adultery with the world they're meant to have been delivered from. Preaching so as to convert nobody is not preaching.
Great Sermon! I thank God in heaven that on this rainy day in 2014 I can hear timeless treasures such as this and I needed to hear these words preached long ago while I was yet unsaved in 1993 and know there were men of God praying, men of God calling and men of God preaching...
wonderful merciful savior
VANITY! VANITY! You delivered well. There is no confusion about what we are called out of and to.
Unfortunately, what our parents did in ignorance, and even in moderation, our children will do in excess.
Why can't believers understand that acknowledging Christmas is dishonoring the Word of God? Our children and neighbors are pressured to live in lusts, according to
1 John 2:16. We need bigger barns as it is.
This is a season when we all get along; the holy (believers) and the profane (rebels). There is no difference between the clean and the unclean for the most part. Believers love their lives too much to endure persecution and rejection by not participating in this celebration. Believers ignore what they hear if it offends their flesh. Yet they will pray to a holy God and ask for His blessings; still. What vanitiy!
Thank you for being biblical.
FINALITY OF CHRISTMAS I am in total agreement with this message.
The sad thing is that unbelievers and our children in some cases have heard that chris mass is pagan. In spite of this, we (Christians; so-called) disobey what we know to be the truth and think our children will believe what we tell them about a Deliverer.
If we won't listen to God, why would anyone else? We are causing many to blasphem with our disobedience.
Thank you very, very much for bringing the truth as it is in scripture.
Also, I agree with you that it is all emotionalism.
NEEDFUL MESSAGE I do not support "causes." However, if ever this was a time for protesters to picket the abortion clinics, it would be at Christmas. Of course with gentleness, meekness and in the spirit of love - if they are Christians.
A Worthwhile Sermon Now this is a message worth repeating throughout the year.
It is also a message that needs to be brought to the attention every person celebrating this day. I wonder if Planned Parenthood supporters realize that the One being celebrated was sought out by Herod; not to celebrate the birth, but to murder.
Great Sermon! Thanks for releasing these in 64KBPS format. Since this sermon is 44 years old, it is good to hear it in quality audio. If someone can do these with the Sermon on the Mount series like you recently did on that single sermon What Jesus preached about hell from 1964, we would really be grateful .
Great Sermon! What powerful preaching by Pastor Martin.
It held us and kept us on every word, showing our Great Shepherd of the sheep, the Lord Jesus Christ, has finished the work God the Father gave him to do, bearing all our sins and guilt in his great sacrifice on the Cross in our place.
We did notice that Pastor Martin believes in the free offer of the gospel to all, but we know that the gospel is proclaimed to all, yet we also know that only the true sheep, God's chosen elect, will come.
Great Sermon! Thanks for your note Pastor Carlson: When Pastor Martin told me he was going to preach on this text, I was reminded of the first time I was aware of him preaching it. November 1985. The audience was Grace Community Church, Panorama City, CA.(where John MacArthur pastors) I had just left Trinity the month before to move back to Montana. I had a copy of that tape for years, it may still be up in the attic. I have heard one other recording of him preaching this, but this was an interesting introduction to this sermon.
Very Needed Word! In this message Pastor Martin covers the biblical passages which clearly demonstrate what we know by instinct but do not always apply: that we have the right (and responsibility) to assess the genuineness of repentance before conferring forgiveness. He shows that we do no good to the offender, nor to the fractured relationship, by neglecting this assessment. Though we may be tempted to "just forget it and move on," without genuine repentance the sinning brother is still covering his sin, and he who covers his sin will not prosper--nor can the relationship barriers be removed. It's self-love to neglect faithful dealing with a sinning brother for fear of the consequences--not love to him. Can this principle be abused? Absolutely. So, Pastor Martin exhorts us to remember the Golden Rule and the law of equal treatment: "with what measure you measure it shall be measured to you." We aren't to be hard or Pharisaical, insisting on the right number of tears. Not everyone expresses brokenness the same way. We should freely forgive where there is true contrition, however it is expressed. Still, we are not to be taken in by deceit. For all this we need the wisdom supplied by the Spirit of God, in our families and in our churches.
