Great Sermon! Good to hear. Also, if we understand that God called us for His purposes alone, we'll find more comfort in His plan. We must avoid, at all costs feasting on media such as WND Faith that seems to take our minds away from the eternal things Colossians 3:1, 2; and fill us with lust through "Feed," another media source. First, we get their gossip (James 3:5, 6; then prayer as an afterthought. The entire chapter should be masticated by the so-called Christian habitually exposing the failures of others. Bad news always causes depression. But when Christians stuff negativity down our throats and blinds us with the sins of others, is shows they are not pleased with the one God exalts through the ballot box while at the same time weakens our faith.
Great Truth Well done Thad.
When I think of racism with the church, I can't help think of the parable of the Good Samaritan.
Pastors line their pockets with donations just to move away from the very people they need to mingle with to reveal that God is no respecter of persons/race. Jesus intentionally traveled a restricted road to meet the woman at the well.
The hearts of many remain dark because the shepherd is not dealing with the root cause of racism's societal impact. Many emotional and mental problems have their roots in racism. We put people in bondage; not allowing them to freely choose.
Here's a bit of irony. No Korea's president made a remark about our current president. The media is promoting this as a racist remark. Yet, the education system is teaching all races that they have primal ancestry. So then, is it not racist when the educational system indoctrinates our children?
We are allowing man to make monkeys even out of preachers who avoid bridging racial divide here in America. Other countries don't have these problems.
Christians need to live lives of intentionality and substantiality - break down the walls of racism and lose their lives among people who need the Lord who frees them. Many people in Jericho have been robbed, beaten down,forsaken & left to die.
SUPER CLEANSING SERMON An urgent call to come to the waters of life. Isaiah 8:20 came to mind. A liar ". . . no light in them."
Imagine not caring that Jesus was put to death BECAUSE of this very sin. God has revealed Himself through His Son and yet liars suppress revealed TRUTH. Do they realize that they are among those who said "Let him be crucified:" We will not have that man rule over us. They call Him "Lord" while at the same time not wanting to be saved by Him (Phil 2:11).
Every tongue will confess Him as LORD, but not savior. So then all professor have to examine themselves to see if they are really in the faith.
Great Sermon! ‚Äú A Message for Blind Pastors ‚ÄĚ
You have counted the cost of discipleship by losing your "self" in the will of God who sent a Savior to die BECAUSE of us. You will assuredly be ostracized by some lip service preachers/Christians, because of this message; those who call you brethren. May God strengthen you in the inward man, and bless you abundantly in every way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for yielding to the will, work, and plan of God for His glory and the good of man. Most of all THANK GOD!

I needed that! I am commenting on my sermon. God used my study and prayer time for that message in some powerful ways. I had been so down and discouraged and defeated. I was uplifted and encouraged and strengthened. I find the more I seek to understand what God has done for me the better off I am. I hope many others are blessed by the doctrine of forgiveness. Eph 1:7 & 4:32
Great Sermon! I have been listening to quite a few sermons on the topic of how to hear from God and yours stuck out as being right on. This sermon was much better than others I listened to but still I wish you had gone into more specifics when it came to knowing exactly that when your reading your bible, how you know that what you are reading is God speaking specifically to you and what is just refresher.
What a Blessing! What s help this was. I once joined a KJV only church, and brother believe me they have all kinds of strange beliefs. I left a long time ago, but the thing is that I was kind of haunted by KJV only ideas. Thanks for this sermon God bless you!
Great Sermon! We are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Phil 3:3. Your message supports that we are living epistles of Christ not written in ink, but the living Spirit of God. Brother Dale:
Great presentation. This was a moving presentation of Judson's sufferings and dedication to God. I never heard a presentation like this, biography combined with many songs. It was a blessing for my soul.
Great Sermon! Hi Greg,
I enjoyed your sermon very much.
I am Seventh Day Adventist and noted your comments about the SDA diet issue.
I have one comment re Peter's vision for you to consider:
The vision of the unclean animals was understood by Peter on Acts 10:28. The clean-unclean issue had to do with the Jew-Gentile relationship BUT God showed Peter that God makes no exceptions.
May God continue to bless you and your ministry.
