Great Sermon! Thank you so much Pastor Hoggard! I‚Äôve listened to so many of your sermons through the years, but have to say that this one truly touched me! Your honesty to the Word and your heartfelt rebuke, followed by a great edification was on point. The Holy Spirit was all over this message, and oh, how needed. Praise Him for His Mercy, His Grace and His message that was given, to you, His servant, to share with the broken. Praise Him for He is Worthy!!!
Great Sermon! Once again, Pastor James reminds us of how important it is to know the Old Testament and how it brings to light the meaning of a very difficult passage in Heb. 6. Without going back to Exodus and the wilderness people, so many misinterpret this part of scripture and try to prove that one can loose their salvation. It is also vitally important for the church now, for we are in a sense still in Egypt going through the wilderness of this world, many thinking they are saved when they are truly not. Please listen to this great sermon.
Great Sermon! The rapture is before the tribulation period. The tribulation of Revelation 4-18 is called the great tribulation. It is a day of wrath and God has not appointed us to wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9). The sermon is scripturally accurate. Praise the Lord for sound doctrine! The church is no longer mentioned after chapter 3 in Revelation for a reason.
Such an edifying message! We watched this video sermon today during worship in San Diego because our pastor is on sabbatical. We were so blessed by it! Thank you for the work you do for the kingdom brother. May our Lord continue to bless the work of your hands.
Enriching Sermon! Thank you for making these sermons available online. I really wish we had such Churches with such sermons in the city of Kolkata. But technology reduced the distance. Thank you for making these available online.
Great Sermon! "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."¬†Exodus 20:3 KJV
The disobedience and idolatry inherent in the idea of 'principled pluralism' should be obvious to all Christians, but, sadly, worldly ideas and false teachers have led many astray. We now find ourselves in a situation in which the camel has found his way into our tent, and is in the process of pushing us out into the desert sand. This was inevitable in a pluralistic system, and only repentance and fervent supplication to God will free us from the dominion of the camel.
Great Sermon! This is the clearest and most helpful sermon on sanctification I have heard. While we Reformed folk rightly look to Christ alone for our pardon and justification, we too often fall back on our own methods and natural willpower to help us overcome sin and make us holy. Yet it is "Christ Jesus who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord" (1 Cor. 1:30-31). Rev. Craig points us to God's way - not man's - for attaining humility and holiness: we are transformed into Christ's image as we fix our eyes on Him and behold His glory and rely on His Holy Spirit, who indwells every regenerate believer, to do in us what we can never do for ourselves.
Not that we don't need to be watchful and to mortify sin, but it is through the Spirit of Christ that we mortify the deeds of the body (Rom. 8:13). He alone is able to write God's Law in our hearts and make Christ's victory over sin manifest in our own hearts and lives, all to the praise of the glory of His grace.
This is a message I've listened to over and over and want to share with many friends.
