Great, Great, Great! Bro. Brian brings to life the individuals in this historical narrative of the Bible, revealing their traits, their characters. This is NOT a boring teaching! And behind the scene in this narrative, unseen & not named, but directing the way things are to go, is the Lord our God!
Great Teaching! The movie "One Night With the King" has, if I may say so, whitewashed, romanticized King Ahasuerus (Xerxes). The Bible narrative & other historical information that Bro. Brian gives presents Ahasuerus as a impetuous, volatile, wicked, despotic sexaholic who loved his liquor. And Esther got herself beautified to get next to THAT!? I am shaking my head...
Excellent Series! I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I loved how Bro. Brian revealed the hand of God at work throughout this Book, the character of the human materials that God was working with, His love for the Jewish folks that were willingly still in exile when their little hind parts should have already been back in Promised Homeland years earlier. Our God is sovereign; He has never EVER wrung His hands or said, "I didn't see this coming. What do I do now? How can this mess be fixed?"
Great Sermon! Thank you, Bro. Robert for sharing the information you researched regarding slavery (Biblical & otherwise). Some of the information is new to me. Also, I did not know about Liberia's "cast system" & its civil war. Thanks for pointing out the sinful heart of all people.
Great Sermon! This message is very, very, very good. I listened to this a few years back, downloaded it, & have listened to it several times through the years. It's based on Ephesians 4. The mindset/heart of the lost contrasted to the mindset/heart of the Lord's own.
Great Series! Thank you for this series. I've enjoyed the stories & your pointing out that the main Character, the Hero is God not the people.
Also, thank you for being able to keep the order of the books as they appear in the Bible and still give the chronological details of each book.
Two Questions Came to Mind When that young man wrote about being "saturated" two questions came to me that I would ask him: 1) Is your heart wearing a raincoat? Pride is a big, big raincoat that can prevent the soaking that you think you're getting. 2) Are you walking in the rain of God's Word & good teaching & letting it all soak in; you know, meditating on it all, or, are you driving through it all, not stopping long enough to get out & get wet?
Hey, Jesse, about the Lord Jesus & the donkey thing: it was a one day affair on a borrowed donkey. He did travel a couple times in a borrowed boat. Mostly, He did "right foot, left foot" journeys, which included that walk on water. And Jesse, I'm pretty sure the Lord could have asked for donations for His own donkey or ship, not to mention to get a "streamline" chariot. Or He could have went down to the water & gone fishing for the coins He needed. Maybe you should try that. Bottom line, Jesse, you need to find another example to justify yourself.
WOW! MAYBE EVEN BETTER THAN PART ONE! I listened to both parts overnight. Part one was so good that I just had to listen to part two & I couldn't get back to sleep because I was too busy inwardly shouting, over and over again "HALLELUJAH." Outwardly I was enthusiastically whispering the word -- I didn't want my doggie protector to think my shouting meant "Help! Come running, barking & with teeth showing!" Oh, such a good message...no, what a great message!
Great Teaching! Thanks for your explanation of gluttony. I've never thought that one could spiritually take in too much/display excessiveness, but I see that even in spiritual things self indulgence can come into play. Thanks for letting it be known that if you get/take in a lot because that is what you use/give out, that is not gluttony.
Btw, I'm not absolutely sure but I don't think that's Matt teaching this.
Great Teaching & Instructions! Thank you, Bro. Brian, for letting me "sit in on" your teaching session. This was a very good, informative session. Because I've heard many of your teachings & messages over the years I know that you have a great love for God's holy Word & see It as inspired by the Lord.
