Magnificent! Is this popular equation 1 day = 1000 years, for God is true? Hard to understand attribute of God is explained in a SIMPLE and INTERESTING way, OMNITEMPORALITY - All times are present to Him now. Thank you pastor for teaching this truth that strengthens the faith.
IN CHRIST The true inheritance is of infinite value far greater than we could imagine or ask for.In Christ, we have already gone through Hell and have come out the other end, God will never require that we must go to Hell again. unfathomable! The Bible speaks of this stupendous fact of our salvation process in Romans 6:3-11.Thank you Pastor for reminding us again and again what it is to be in Christ. I love you Lord!
Equip Yourself! Reading 1john2:2 superficially sounds like what the "Universalists" say is true. Hear this sermon to get correct interpretation where Pastor explains this verse with verses like 1john 5:19 and many more. Thank you Lord for this sermon.
Good Doctrine This sermon will certainly help anyone in witnessing to those people who believe in "Universal Atonement" based on 1 John2:2 (for the sins of the whole world)Even in John's letter itself (1 John5:19) the expression "the whole world" is used in a way that directly opposes the doctrine of the Universalists. Thank you Lord for opening my eyes through this sermon.
More About CHRIST How can Jesus Christ beThe First Begotten of the Dead, when Moses and two others were restored from dead even in the old testament period? Hear this sermon where pastor clearly explains the meaning of this difficult expression in Revelation 1:5 with scriptures. Thank you Lord for helping to know more about you through the sermons preached by your servant.
AMEN! How can assembled synagogues of Satan content themselves with false gospel messengers and messages? Do any hunger and thrive upon the true gospel but GATHERED (not assembled) flock of True Shepherd and Spiritual Vineyard? Having a seeing eye and a hearing ear, having tasted meat indeed, where else can these go, but to His flesh and His blood (drink indeed)? On a bit of a different note---is Isaiah 1 old covenant or new covenant terminology? In Isaiah 1 as in other places, this issue is vital to proper, unforced interpretation. Selah.
Great Explanation ! Wonderful clarification! why is it called the mystery of iniquity? It certainly is a mystery why people will abandon the one true God to go worship other gods who cannot save. It is also a mystery that this movement will come right out of the midst of the congregation. Thank you pastor for your simple explanation of this often misunderstood passage in 2 Thessolonians 2:1-10.
Great Sermon! God does not leave our sanctification into our hands, for we will surely mess it up. After having poured so much into our life that He even gave His only begotten Son, God does not leave our sanctification to chance, but He takes our sanctification into His own hands. Thank you Lord for revealing your work through your word.
Great Sermon! The fire from God showing the wrath of God was so intense that it consumed the stones when Elijah sacrificed the bullock. That OT sacrifice pictures, our Lord's suffering the immense intensity of the the wrath of God in the cross when He suffered the equivalent of hell for our sins. Beautiful comparisons are made in this sermon between the sacrifices and prayers of Elijah and our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for your word.
Great Sermon! Scriptures emphasize that justification is by faith alone. Faith is a gift which cannot be conjured up. Faith is the bond that unites us with Christ, so that through faith we have communication with God. Pastor has very well explained this all important verse in Romans 4:25.Thank you for your word Lord.
CORRECTION !! The link to Pink's "God's Jewels" sermon should NOT have a space between /gods as shown in my original comment. Here is the corrected link:
GOD'S VALUED TREASURE !! For all who enjoy this sermon preached by Pastor Chompff, I recommend that you read this sermon by Arthur W. Pink entitled, God's Jewels. Here is link to it: http://www.gracegems.org/Pink/gods_jewels.htm
Many Wonderful Truths The term 'carnal christians' sounds oxymoronic.This is clearly evidenced by the verses in Romans 8:6-8. And we are not co-workers with God in God's husbandry. The false understanding that we work with God comes from the wrong translations of the kjv translators. Thank you Pastor for faithfully interpreting God's word. All Glory Be To Him!
The Shepherd, The Door, The Porter When Jesus spoke of the Shepherd and the Door, he clearly spoke of himself with "I am the door" verses 7 and 9. But "to him the porter openeth"---definite article for "the porter" as for "the shepherd, and for "the door." But who is the Porter who openeth for the prophesied Shepherd and was not the Porter also prophesied in the OT? And although not clearly mentioned by Pastor Chompff, I cannot but believe the porter/forerunner none other than the same person who proclaimed in John 1, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." Singular, definite articles---no need for mistaken identity! But as Pastor Chompff says,Jesus spoke parables that they which claimed to see, "might be made blind" (John 9:39)and the blind cannot see no matter how obvious.
A WORD IN SEASON, HOW GOOD IT IS !! This is a word that is advice and counsel to such who stand in need of it, exhortation and instruction to those that want it, comfort to those that are distressed. For me, all of the above is needed for the work God has me doing in His vineyard. I'm ploughing in very hard ground!
BLESSED SURETY RECONCILING! The tenses of Numbers 23:21 are noteworthy, as shall not behold is not the same as "hath not beheld" and "neither hath he seen" is not the same as shall not see. God's past tenses swallow all "contingencies" giving no allowance for future changes. Appreciated Mr. Sjoerdsma bringing sweet contemplation which I coupled with Paul's commentary: NOT imputing their trespasses unto them. Here is real sin with a real possessive pronoun, "their", yet NOT imputed unto "them"! How can this be? In a word SUBSTITUTE, in a word SURETY.
A WORKS GOSPEL IS HERESY !! In this sermon and all his sermons, Pastor Chompff is faithful to point out that salvation is GODâ€™S WORK ALONE and not by good works. It is the unequivocal teaching of scriptures like Ephesians 2:8,9 (KJV) and Romans 6:23 (KJV) that salvation is A GIFT which is not contingent on human effort. There are those who love to teach a â€śworks gospelâ€ť based on the teachings found in James. But, they and their followers are standing on shaky ground. When James speaks of works, he speaks of good works resulting FROM salvation and not the other way around. God, through James, declares that those who have received the â€śgiftâ€ť of salvation have good works that follow (Abraham and Rahab are mentioned as examples of people who demonstrated their faith GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD by their righteous deeds.) The plain teaching of the inspired Word of God is that salvation is â€śNOT BY WORKS of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghostâ€ť Titus 3:5(KJV). Over and over, the Bible proclaims that good deeds CANNOT merit us salvation. Reject not this truth and chase after the lie that is put forth in the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi and the teachings of other heretics. Heed God's WARNING through Pastor Chompff.
