Voices of the 20th Century In my opinion the greatest voices of the true gospel I have heard of the 20th Century are Rolf Barnard and Henry Mahan and are the true gospel preachers that the present day grace preachers of today have been greatly benefited from. Give a listen it may also benefit your soul.
Sanctification Hebrews 10:9-10 and 14. Verse 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the FIRST, that he may establish the SECOND.
Verse 10 By the which will we are SANCTIFIED through the OFFERING of the BODY of Jesus Christ ONCE for all.
Verse 14 For by ONE OFFERING he hath PERFECTED FOR EVER THEM that are SANCTIFIED.
John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, IT IS FINISHED: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
If you are a believer, a true child of God, born-again, you are TOTALLY SANCTIFIED period by the work Christ performed on the cross as He was made sin for us. The teaching of Progressive Sanctification is a false teaching adding that you must continually/ ongoingly Progressively sanctify your flesh which is a Work that can never be completed in this life and in the flesh. Christ did not come and die to perfect the flesh of men and women that God gave Him but rather died that we might have Christ's Spirit living in us hence being born again. Read John chapter 3 to understand what Christ came to save.
WOW! Another fantastic message and such a unique gift that God has given Pastor Jesse to stimulate our minds to understand the practicality of the gospel message in our individual lives. Encouragement exhortation and warning to be discerning about the pitfalls that can bring us back into legalism. I assume or speculate that most of us before we learned the true gospel were in organizations that were legalistic and as Jesse says it can become difficult not to be prone if we are not guarded to fall back into that. We need Christ to show us these things for we can have religion perhaps still in our closets. And Paul spoke extensively about this in the book of Galatians. Thanks again Pastor Jesse. PS to any or all that read this I know this is not a public forum and not meant to be taken as criticism but it is rather odd that there are very few comments listed to pastor Jesse messages.
Whoa Man!! A double minded man is unstable in all his ways, Is one of the thoughts that came to my mind as I was listening to this message. And as Pastor Jesse said towards the very end of this message "Quit playing with Christ" Jesse unravels for us the multifaceted character studies of all the players in this drama. The Bible is full of fascinating characters and incidents in the lives of these people and that puts us face-to-face with ourselves. In our lives and, we must admit at least to some extent, we must say in the modern vernacular "been there done that" I. E. this old story is so contemporary because it shows us ourselves. Dear lord show us who we really are and thanks for the pictures and types and redemption of Christ in this study. Thanks Pastor Jesse WHOA MAN!!
Good Sound Scriptural Advice Boy what good advice especially for some things that are going on in the local assembly right now.
The devil is a roaring lion and wants to devour who he can and cause division amongst the brethren and even the pastors this was a great message for our congregations to here and be reminded of and to take heed to. Thanks pastor Clay
Indeed an astounding message The virgin birth is an astounding thing as Don speaks here that even the angel in Luke chapter 1 verse 35 says that this holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. What a great message and especially a fitting one for the season
Great Sermon! Boy how important this message is truth is never known until you experience it God break us of our rebellion confront us with our sins. Superficial and half-truth knowledge is death Agrippa was so close and yet so far away from salvation. Could it be Lord that you would come to us and show us what we are wretched sinners in need of a Savior Break us Break our rebellion we will not come until you do this for us. Amen
Great Sermon! This was really encouraging Don just keep reading His word and our faith will grow keep seeking Him daily. There's no other book like the Bible it's the only living book and it stays contemporary forever because it's the word of God
