Great Sermon! Wow this is exactly what I have been noticing and been so burdened about that is happening to current North American Christianity and it's about time someone stood up with the truth! I also believe we have been guilty of giving people false assurance just because they "said a prayer" when only the Spirit of God can truly witness within someone to tell them they are saved and then their lives should prove it. In my youth I also was guilty of giving out false assurance to those I tried to lead to Chrisr. However in recent years I have tried to challenge some dear ones I love on their profession of faith in Jesus yet they are continuing to live an overtly sinful lifestyle, reject the authority of the Bible and spiritual leadership, neglect fellowship, excuse sin or hold bitterness toward their brothers or sisters in Christ and bear the fruit of a selfish life. Yet family are consoling themselves saying "Well atleast we know he is saved because he prayed a prayer when he was nine and claims he still believes." Then where is the fruit of repentance and a continuously sanctified life? The few times I tried to speak this truth in love I was chewed to bits by the carnal ones and scolded by family for not having faith in their salvation and being judgemental etc. So i have gotten cowardly
Great Sermon! Thank you SO much! Definitely helps me in my battle against pride! God bless you for taking a stand for humility in an increasingly proud world. Especially thanks for the boldness to give the relevant illustrations and practical application.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Byrd,
I have heard many sermons that I considered at the time of my hearing or reading them, to be the best ever; sermons by Mahan, Spurgeon, Barnard, Ryle, Pink and others and many of your sermons, especially "The Day of Atonement" series. Then I was certain that the message on the "Peace Offering" preached on July 5th was the best I had ever heard. But I know of no words to describe the blessing of today's August 23, 2015 message "We See Jesus" to my soul. So I will not attempt to do so; except to say that this is truly the best sermon I have every heard in my life.
Today's sermon from Thirteeth Street Baptist Church should be translated into every language and preached in every part of the earth.
All praise to the God of Glory for His abundant mercies in providing a preacher and opening our ears and hearts to the glorious gospel of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Very Poignant Sermon. We listened to this sermon and found it very poignant for the times we are now in. May the Lord Bless His Church at this time in history, and Glorify the Name of Christ His Son.
Great Sermon! Daniel vii, 11, 26.
When the 1260 years appointed for Antichrist's duration, and commencing from AD606, when he became Universal Bishop,
or from 756AD, when he became a Civil Prince, shall have expired, when the Protestant witnesses for Christ have, by the neglect
of parents, masters, and by the seduction of Arminian preachers, the Popish missionaries, been drawn back to the essentials of
Popery, living altogether ignorant of the experimental light, power, and comforts of gospel truths, or, if steadfast and faithful shall, in finishing their testimony, be almost utterly destroyed by persecution and murder, and have consumed in that condition three years and half about AD1866, or 2016, and when the nations have sufficiently warned by the preaching of the gospel to
renounce their abominations and forsake their communion, God shall, in the most tremendous manner, punish Antichrist for their idolatries, murder of his saints, and other unnumbered abominations.

Good and sound doctrine. Edifying! Dr. Bloom shows one can preach in depth sound doctrine and the gospel at the same time. I learned some new things about baptism that made me stronger in that doctrine.
Great Sermon! This sermon was the clarity that I claimed in prayer as I dangled in darkness with no arm of flesh to help. O the clamoring of those who strive for human help and do not trust the My God will Supply. Thank you, you need to expound on this more, for the help and faith of Gods people.
Great Sermon! Acts 3 verse 21.
Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Christ is not going to reign on earth for the millenium, then go back to heaven then come again and wind the world up.

Outstanding Sermon! If you struggle with this doctrine or are trying to defend it yourself this sermon will be a tremendous help. Six objection to this doctrine are held up and defended in a very sincere, compassionate and absolute Scriptural way. Also some personal experiences are given by the pastor. Let's all be ready to give a defence of this amazing truth.
Great Sermon! Excellent introduction to the second book of Corinthians, and teaching of the Christian doctrine of comfort. We all suffer and need comfort so this message is very encouraging to that end. The five points made at the end are very good.
thanks sir for this sermon, enjoyed it thouroughly learnt a lot from ur sermon, i teach kids at sunday school, great stuff to add to what im akready learning , thanks deborah.
god bless ur ministry
Great Sermon! There are so many good points brought out of these verses. The truth of the Trinity is there. The foolishness of Pharaoh's army. The constant struggle we have against sin. The baptism mentioned being of a new identity, with a new leader. Paul, speaking to the Gentiles, uses "our fathers". On and on, so many good things brought forth in just these few verses. Many other good thing to learn are here in an excellent teaching from God's Word.
Great Sermon! I never saw the 10 commandments in 1 Timothy 1:8-11, but I sure do now. How could i miss it? This is a very good exposition of the Scriptures and teaching on the law of God. The more I learn of God's word the more I see how misunderstood it is. Thanks and praise to God for His faithful undershepherds, who fearfully and diligently seek the truth of God's word.
Great Sermon! The Potter and the Clay has become quite popular these days. I notice a lot of figurines in the Christian bookstores, and online, bringing attention to these verses of Scripture. I believe the popular thinking about the Potter and the clay doesn't go far enough and this sermon will show that. There is a superficial view of how God is forming us from these verses, but the main point is missed, especially here in Romans 9. This is a really good sermon it gives the hearer proper understanding, or I should say, it teaches the full extent of the meaning of the Potter and the clay. I guess some people will hate this sermon because they can't accept the truth of God's absolute sovereignty.
Great Sermon! I love the title of this series, I'm reminded that the preaching of God's word, on the Lord's day, is for us who are being saved as our very life blood, if you will. This is an excellent sermon. It is hard to believe that we have died to sin when we struggle with it daily. But, it is true that we who have died with Christ, have died to sin. We are under the rule of the good King now, he has set us free to serve Him in holiness. God is amazing in His ways, Rom. 11:33-36 comes to mind.
Great Sermon! This is another great sermon by Mr. Baucham. The doctrine is very solid and practical. How can one deny the validity of the Bible with the truths and explanations given in this sermon?
