Great Sermon! I'm so happy with the decisions that the leadership of SA makes ūüėä .
Removing the news section and replacing it with devotions and bible verses is very smart ūüôŹ
I hope there will be a backup somewhere of all the sermons here if the tech-giants do shut us down.
Sermonaudio was precious to me in china, and it continues to be so for many others. praise the lord.
still waiting, hopefully visa will be approved soon, almost 12 months apart, yet loves me more than ever . I'm still spiritually alive, and can see God's providence in 2020, without any doubt, this is where God wants me to be, so I accepted His will
I just talked with my Nigerian Christian brother, and I'm moved to pray. I'm happy for the opportunity to lead him closer to christ while I was with him. And my advice is not to seek help from the U.S.A, EU, governments like the below posters mentioned, but let the church be the one to do it. The world cannot solve this problem. As far as I know, travel is allowed to places like Kenya, and some parts of Africa. Go! The developed world is going to hell, invest in the undeveloped world Church! it's not the end, consider going where you fear going, and trust the Lord. The harvest is plenty, stop playing a Christian on the internet, and become a labourer of Jesus today.
His sermons shaped my Christian life more than I can imagine. Listening to the Let Bible Speak Radio for years made me create my own radio show for my Chinese Bible students, I also called it Let the Bible Speak Radio.
Enjoy your upgrade to heaven Mr. Alan Cairns! See you soon
Encouraging! at the 29 minute mark, the preacher says what if you are in China, locked out? Listen to David and trust in God at all times!
This is my situation, and it really encouraged me to hear those words, they sure did!
I even see it on sermonaudio, many churches no longer available to listen to. It's understandable, nothing lasts forever. I remember in 2013 News in Focus radio with Trevor Hammack was removed, it felt like I really did lose a local church!
Encouraging! He really believes in his church. They will open Casino's and Pro Wrestling first before they open churches.
But he will be made an example of. Let's see if the church is really important to people, as someone stated below, you can post John MacArthur links all you want, but if you don't support him now, your actions speak louder than words.
If your church is not important today, it won't be essential tomorrow.
A minister referred to Christ‚Äôs triumphal entry into Jerusalem and asked: ‚ÄúWhat if the donkey on which Jesus was riding had thought all the cheering was for him? What if that small animal had believed that the hosannas and the branches were in his honor?‚ÄĚ
On this easter day I won't answer any your questions, but I do want all of us to be like that donkey, On Palm Sunday, the donkey was merely a Christ-bearer, bringing the Son of God into the city where He would give His life for the sins of the world.
Let us develop a healthy ‚Äúdonkey mentality,‚ÄĚ what an asset (hehe!) that would be as we travel the road of life. Instead of wondering what people think of us, our concern would be, ‚ÄúCan they see Christ Jesus, the King?‚ÄĚ
there must be a misunderstanding... I posted this story because it's sad what is happening, I did not mean any contempt to anyone.
Infact, I would not be on this site full of thousands of great christian servants/preachers both ancient and modern alike.
Are you upset because I support easter, sometimes considered a pagan holiday? I have my reasons for following the scriptures, easter is just a modern name, what I really celebrate is passover and the feasts of Israel, not looking at moses who is just a shadow, but Christ in those feasts.
Or is it because I do not support the chinese underground church? I have my reasons for that, one being that the underground church is not a denomination and is filled with all sorts of sick doctrines.
Lastly it has to be the new "keyboard generation" of Christians who think they can fight the spiritual war through social media, on anti-christian platforms, instead of doing through their local church. It might seem like a bigger reach, but the impact is not. Virtual friends are not friends.
Those are the only 3 reasons I could think of where I had clearly shown contempt.
A 6 year old child was found in the original epicenter months ago, with his grandpa dead inside for almost a week. When the police asked why he did not run outside to ask for help, he said "Grandpa told me to stay inside"
Having been back home, I have used facebook, normally banned. And I've seen denial that judgement could never come to America, and peoples facebook posts reflected that, more games, more idolatry, I had always told my friends, how would a north korean believer feel when they see what you post? I've seen then regret, but no repentance, people,turning to music to calm themselves down, but not to prayer. I have seen funerals where unbelievers are sent to heaven by their friends. These are just my observations on north american culture. I can only wait upon the Lord, and let Him do what is,right
I'm celebrating easter with her, on different continents, but together in Christ ūüėä
I was encouraged by what I learned during passover that the Lamb was supposed to be eaten on the very day, so that it would not rot and spoil and "see corrupton". Christ as the passover lamb is the most important thing in my life recently.
As far as your question on missions, I do agree with you, I would go even further that we should quarantine some immature people from the mission field for they cause more harm than good. As to what is to be done, spiritual revival begins first in the church, in jerusalem, then spreads to judea, samaria, and then to the world. I pray for unity in all churches, that each person would participate in making their local church grow.
