Great Sermon! All Christians need to hear this message.

Sober reality, and solemn challenge “I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence”
“… one sinner destroyeth much good”.
But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places. Jer 13:17

Powerful soul-searching word! What a convicting word, straight from the Throne of Heaven! We take for granted that the presence of The LORD is with us, and this message brought a sober reality that we can be mistaken.
Great Sermon! This sermon is so true about the church and each person who claims to be a Christian. We need the Lord!
The LORD's Holy Grudge Against the Churches Timely! "...until they acknowledge their offense". The LORD holds a holy grudge, turns and walks away, and will not return to the modern churches (yes conservative and reformed too), until they come to terms with his condition above, "until."
The issue is not "will the Lord turn away", but that the LORD already HAS turned away from the churches in America and Britain. Yes they have "sought after him with their sheep and flocks", returning to some older and historic doctrines and practice, but only superficially. "They will not find me, until...", says the inspired text. Churches are going through the motions but are impotent because there is no power, no true regeneration or sanctification. Churches and family generations are Backsliders. "I know Ephraim, and Judah..". "There is none that seeks after God", truly that is. "All have turned aside", literally. This is the "Ichabod Generation", and has been in America since the Civil War and early 1900s. Even Spurgeon's Downgrade puts a time frame on the "falling away", and Fundamentalism, Evangelicalism, Charismaticism and New Calvinism were vain attempts to regain power and influence. But the condition has not been met: "Until they acknowledge their offense", and "come clean" before Christ who removes Candlesticks.

Great Sermon! A very powerful sermon, especially relevant to Great Britain both to the nation and the churches at large at this time.

Right from the heart of God! Powerful message! Thank you for preaching such truth when many pulpits are silent to this kind of preaching!
