Clarification Hi Pastor Gavin. Thanks for a clear well argued biblical position. Pls can you clarify something. You mentioned the context is public worship. If a woman canâ€™t speak, preach , pray, prophesy, what does it mean in v 5 that she should not be praying and prophesying without a covering? It seems to suggest that If she wears a covering she can prophecy in public? Pls help me understand this.
Great Sermon! Oh, dear brother, I was indeed 'numb-struck' by this precious sermon - when you were only half-way through. I was struck by the 'awe of God' and the profound awe by which you preached throughout. I treasure it. I envy the glorious spirit in which you preach and proclaim the Word of God. We remember you, and love you brother. May the Lord richly bless your ministry.
Great Sermon! Tremendously edifying! Tremendously glorifying (of Christ)! My brother Gavin preaches so powerfully â€śin the Spirit!â€ť Praise the Lord!
He has absolutely no interest in praise for himself; only for the LORD! Piling up Scripture after Scripture, his message overwhelms us with its power!
Listening to this again ... Seven months later, I listened to this again, and if anything it was even richer, as it probed our spiritually loneliness â€” and encouraged us to faith. Godâ€™s own phrases (his Scripture phrases, like Isaiah 50:10c) are haunting, and catch us up in their depth â€” in this case the believerâ€™s â€śwalking in darkness, without light!â€ť This resonated with my own soul, and my loneliness in this world! Loved your references to other passages like Job 30:26, Psalm 88:14-18, and Jesusâ€™ experiences in Gethsemanie. Godâ€™s Word is so rich; and you showed us more of its gold! Thanks again.
Great Sermon! How wonderful to resource your Cornerstone FCC site, and see how many sermons are already available for listening! How much more wonderful was it to reference this sermon of â€śTrusting in the Darkness!â€ť Gavin: I love the wonderful economy & precision of vocabulary that you display, as it opens up these Scripture sections! Surely this theme was well-placed for our day! For a darkness prevails over our land, and few are the places where the light shines forth and Godâ€™s truth may be heard. And yet both in text and title you pointed all of us to faith â€”at precisely just such times! I give thanks to God for your emigration to our shores. May God bless this ministry and this sermon! Wonderful!
Revealing Sermon! This message gives us good reason that we should be aware of Revival as has happened in the past. While we cannot start a revival, we can pray that the Holy Spirit starts it. Today we need revival more than ever and it's something not preached in our churches.
