Great Sermon! I do love to listen to Pentecostalists claiming that a sign of being baptised in the Spirit is speaking in tongues. Always makes me smile. Paul wished that all that heard him spoke in tongues (1.Cor.14.5), and on the day of Pentecost foreign languages were heard (Acts.2.8-19), so many kinds "of voices" (1.Cor.14.10).
The book of the Acts remains history, and confirmation of the Old Testament, not teaching in the way that Pentecostalists would have it to be seen, many of which are rich and yet do not follow Peter (Acts.3.6). "Silver and gold have I none", now translated private jet and mansion have I.
Sure this is America that is being outlined? What is here said you may confidently change the title to read England, where the base is promoted by law and by funding those involved in it. The all out war against God, godly morals and ethics, recently saw Sodomites joined together in so called marriage, our political parties, though hating one another, joining together to attack the sacredness of marriage. Evil sits upon the heart of our political system, and Christendom just passes by on the other side. Few who profess Christ have any godly morals and ethics, those truly born again being attacked by many that just have a name to live by but are dead, so that those who stand for truth and righteousness are not only attacked by an evil government but by many pretending to be Christians. We now have police continualy seeking to move Christians on, even arresting them, for giving out tracts, though Islam is has no problems in preaching hatred upon our streets. Christendom has abandoned the law of God, and so abandoned the first part of the Gospel (Rev.14.7), preaching a lawless gospel of decissions and indifference toward holiness, righteousness, and truth.
Great Sermon! The eighteen hundreds saw a multitude of heretics rising up. What was very dangerous at the time is how so many became famous within Christendom, gathered to themselves great followings, and so great a standing that if you were now to speak out against them you would be set upon.

Antichrist has already come I am with the Protestant Reformers that the man of sin is the Pope of Rome. The three numbers, 666, remains the trinity of man, directly opposed, sitting opposite, challenging the triune God, 888. Nothing can be plainer. It was the Jesuits that first brought in the present day teaching of a future antichrist. One Emmanuel Lacunza, through Edward Irving, eventually passed on to that wicked man J.N.Darby who considered that the crucifixion of Christ was a mistake on the part of the Jews in being blind to see that He was their Messiah, or Memre, as they then spoke of him, in some respects
An Intelligent Sermon Excellent sermon. What we need today is to expound scripture according to the fundamentals of the faith so that The Faith maybe sustained in the minds of the hearers. So much is spoken on scripture but very little attached to the doctrine of the Church. By the way when it comes to the Image of the Beast this is put in contrast to the Image of God. Who is the Image of the Beast is it not The Pope? the beast being the Devil, one of the names of the Devil.
