Thought-provoking message Could it be that Paul usually signed the letters and only wrote one with his own hand, due to his bonds? I imagine it's tough to write a letter when your hands are chained to other men on each side. Just a thought...Could it be, that those guards, who witnessed the writing of these letters, are with Christ now? The message provoked my imagination. Thank you.
Excellent Message! Much to like and benefit from in this message. I especially liked the four views of man and what each view necessitates in a deliverer... particularly the prevalent religious free-will view that has an impotent (or at best deistic god) and sovereign man. That view necessitates manipulation and control. Great illustration of the dog in the trap.
True, Lord, Son of David... I will gladly take the crumbs that fall from my master's table, knowing I don't even deserve those.
Pastor, Thank you. This incredible message was written directly to me, and for me. I'm so thankful to the LORD for what He has said to my heart through you. When you spoke about the "new laws written in the redeemed soul's heart", I was astonished and humbled. I knew each passage you mentioned, but was so deeply edified that you had bundled them all together as laws we MUST obey, because we have the Spirit of Christ. I believe a special hymn MUST be written concerning this teaching. I feel like Jonathan must have felt, who having tasted the honey, was enlightened to go on with renewed energy in his body and soul. God bless your ministry, Pastor Nibert, and may God fulfill the ministry He has ordained that each of us MUST fulfill. I love this idea and am completely transfixed by the thought of it! Sing my soul the glory of thy Redeemer!
Thank you so much, Pastor Nibert This message thrilled my heart. All through it, as you moved from point to point, my heart kept saying, "Truth LORD, and Thou has also said, 'My burden is light'..." Lo and behold, this is how the LORD ended this wonderful sermon. Praise His Holy Name and God bless you in your every prayer and desire before God the Father and His Son, the LORD JESUS Christ. Pastor, He is feeding us by answering your prayers to serve Him in purity and in the honesty of a true heart. May He continue to speak to us through you.
Our God is so great! Pastor Todd, Thanks so much for this message. Love thinking about the "five smooth stones of salvation". David won the victory over Goliath with the force of one single stone, the first one he pulled up out of his sling stash. And Christ is that Stone, the first fruits among many brethren, Who by Himself paid the sin debt for the elect with His Own blood. Ah! The single blow of that smooth Stone is the cross! Praise our great LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Please LORD, bring a great revival of the preaching and the hearing of Thy great Gospel.
CHRIST Honoring Message!!!!!! Pastor Bell defines in this message, through the Holy Scriptures, the great battle the true sons of GOD face,between our corrupt, sinful flesh and the regenerate heart given us by the LORD by HIS sovereign grace and mercy! We are not "former sinners" , as most preaching teaches today, but great sinners still, ever in need of a great savior , in the person of our LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!! This message is vital for the elect to hear, day after day!!!! May the LORD of All Grace continue to bless these faithful pastors, who uncompromisingly declare the free grace of our Sovereign LORD in CHRIST!!!!!
O Bread of Life! Such an important message! So important! Praise God for His wonderful works, all of them...mine! Thank you, Brother Don. Truly, we are annointed with the oil of gladness above our fellows, by His grace!
Great Sermon! Very interesting. I'm thinking not an error or oversight or typo butan insightful plan on that dear Bro Maurice's part. As I listened I thought yes, the unsearchable riches of Christ overshadow from Genesis 1:1 to the end of Revelation.
Really Awesome Sermon! Really awesome sermon about what God does for us and to us - for us at the cross to forgive us and justify us, and to us by giving a new heart and clothing us in His righteousness. A perfect and pure Gift of Himself that He works outside of us and inside of us as he freely draws filthy unrighteousness helpless sinners to His Glorious Self. I listened twice and will listen again! Thank you Jesus and Pastor Nibert!
