Too Far Gone .... My opinion or belief in response to Brother Johnstonâ€™s question as to whether my nation (America) is too far gone for Revival is: I believe itâ€™s too far gone and only judgment is looming! That doesnâ€™t mean we shouldnâ€™t try reaching individuals for Christ (we need to), but the nation as a whole has been given over to a reprobate mind. And the Church is much to blame. Iâ€™ve even heard some â€śgoodâ€ť preachers recently state that â€śonly beliefâ€ť is required for salvation, and not repentance. But is a salvation that doesnâ€™t stir repentance, holiness, and a broken desire to obey God (even though we fail at times) â€” is that kind of salvation true Biblical salvation? So many are told to just say a prayer â€śaccepting Jesusâ€ť without first being truly convicted that they are a lost doomed Hell-bound sinner without hope apart from the redeeming blood of Christ shed on the cross. Then they go about their lives without a relationship with Christ, no desire for Scripture, prayer, or a holy life. No repentance. No conviction of sin. No tears. Just living their life on their own terms assured that their going to Heaven. Believers (for the most part) are no longer salt and light. May God help us! May the Lord Jesus Christ deliver us!
Great Convicting Message! This is another great convicting message, makes me examine my life and motives. I don't want to assume anything about myself without looking at Scripture and seeking God. Examine my heart oh Lord!
Great Evangelistic Message! A great message that states the problem of sin and lostness, and provides the only remedy â€” repenting and turning to Jesus Christ as both Lord and Saviour. Time is short. Our lives are but vapors, let us be broken and cry out to the Lord before itâ€™s too late!
Wish all pastors could be convicted by this ... Another great convicting message, which is rare among Americaâ€™s pulpits these days. I truly wish that ALL Americaâ€™s pastors and Christian leaders would listen to this â€” and then REPENT accordingly!
Great Sermon! This sends chills down my back. To read â€śHe loved fishing and was a big New York Yankees fanâ€ť, in an obituary, but nothing about Jesus â€” bring Holy Ghost conviction to my own life. May my future obit be all about the Lord Jesus Christ. Who cares if I â€śliked gardeningâ€ť in light of eternity?!
Great Sermon! The more I listen, the more Iâ€™m convinced that a steady diet of laughs in the church kills both conviction of sin AND any hope for revival and brokenness before God Almighty. This is worth listening to 20 times!
Convicting Sermon! This message made me ashamed that I donâ€™t do more personally to take a stand against cultural and public wickedness. I need to do much more â€” more than simply boycotted certain businesses that are at the forefront of the anti-Christian agenda such as Ben and Jerryâ€™s, Target, Disney, and Starbucks. Sometimes one voice can make a difference. Thank you brother Johnston!
History speaks truth! Very interesting insight about real historical revival results â€” 100,000 conversions in a city with less than 10,000 people? Hmm ... thank you Dr Johnston for correcting what some over-exaggerate. I love the topic of revivals; I truly would love to see one in my lifetime. However, I wonder if we are at the point of no return in America. Have we sinned away our day of Grace?
Great Sermon! Amen! And the church is made up of all of us; so where are we and where am I, that I do not dare raise my voice against all the atrocities I see and hear? Lord Jesus, forgive me and forgive all of us for betraying you and your word. May your Holy Spirit embolden each one of us to proclaim Christ before men.
Great Sermon! Another convicting message! All of his messages are godly and focused on repentance. So needed on this dark hour. Get his books too! Every one Iâ€™ve read are excellent! God bless you Brother Johnson.
More preachers should preach like this ... What a great message! As are all of Brother Johnstonâ€™s messages. .... Sadly, pastors will not say these tornadoes, storms, floods, and fires are judgements from God because they do not preach the judgement of Almighty God, nor do they preach the fear of the Lord and repentance from sin. Itâ€™s an â€śonly believeâ€ť Gospel with no repentance, regeneration, sanctification, and holiness. Some would perhaps maybe give lip-service to great preachers like Edwards, Whitfield, Finney, Nettleton, Tozer, Ravenhill, and Barnard, but they would never preach like them, and most wouldnâ€™t even acknowledge them. Itâ€™s an entertainment and man-centered Gospel these days folks, and salvation to them is just another self-goal for their own preservation, rather than a true desire for the Living God, and His ways, His Righteousness, and Holiness. They donâ€™t care about actually obeying God, or glorifying Him, but only getting something from Him (their salvation). The rest of the time they want the world. It always gets back to them â€” all the time! A man-centered, man-pleasing Gospel, which is not the True Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ of the Bible. Repent! Hell lasts a long time!!
Great Sermon! Thank you for taking up the topic of Hell. Many are shying away from the subject.
I like how you have also tried to teach on the subject and plead with sinners to avoid it.
But today Hell is being attacked like never before and this is why I created a sermon series called "Problems with Annihilationism"
I seek to defend the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
