Great Sermon! Your message starts out with Paul's letter. Why do all the churches think that what Paul said is greater than what Baptist John and Emmanuel said? These two prophets from Luke 1 taught repentance. Emmanuel said from his own lips "I did not come to sacrifice. I came to teach the sinners to repent." He chose 12 disciples who were all 12 sinners. He did not choose those who were already. righteous. God saved Emmanuel. Emmanuel does not save us. God saves us.
Everything in the bible already happened. Caiaphus was a high priest of the Jews in the first century. The anti-Christ was Caiaphus who ordered the death of Emmanuel because Caiaphus believed that Emmanuel blasphemed God. (Matthew 26:57-75) He said "the man among us is the false prophet and there are many false prophets." The husbandmen plotted to kill the heir to steal the inheritance and then lied about why he died. (Mark 12:7-12) Emmanuel said that he did not come for those who were already righteous. He did not come to sacrifice. He came to teach the sinners to repent. (Matthew 9:13) All twelve disciples were sinners. All twelve disciples were left behind after Emmanuel died. They were to teach others what Emmanuel taught them. Only Paul said that you are saved by grace as a free gift. It is a lie.
Thought provoking! So easy to take waking up each morning for granted... this sermon is the proverbial splash of cold water in the face. Please listen and take it to heart and Prayerfully read Psalm 90.
PS - if anyone know where I can find the preceding sermon to this one (also on Psalm 90) please let me know - Thank you.
Great Sermon! Thank you so much this message from your heart. It helped me so much with my lesson plan for Sunday School. I teach the adults and we are on James 4:6-8. May God continue to bless you.??????
Thank-you for revealing the truth in God's word I am grateful for the honesty and the love that Alistair shows as he teaches us the messages revealed in God's word; in this lesson, the meaning of agape love as presented in Paul's letter to the Church and people of Corinth in that day. I felt the words press upon me to examine myself. That is the gift Alistair has...but to present this message as he did, I think, shows the love Alistair has for us (me).
Thank-you. I love you too.
Great Sermon! Great sermon! Makes a person want to be saved all over again! I have also been reconciled with my ex-husband, due to a forgiving heart. This sermon accentuates that point! Well done! Blessings in Christ!
