So true. May the Lord raise up many more watchmen to â€śBlow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarmâ€ť. Would that we all increasingly felt the need to â€śweep between the porch and the altar and [â€¦] say, Spare Thy people, O Lord, and give not Thine heritage to reproachâ€¦â€ť I pray that Godâ€™s presence will be known in a real way at your ministersâ€™ week of prayer next week. May it be a Bethel, a place where you will all testify with Jacob â€śSurely the Lord is in this placeâ€ť. Rather, could it be a Peniel, a place where you may wrestle with God and prevail! The Lord grant you many Aaronâ€™s and Hurâ€™s to support you.
Great Sermon! Great Series. Disappointed with the recording quality;there is so much static on each sermon, and on the 4th one the volume drops very low within a few minutes. I haven't listened to any others yet, but I am hoping they are of better quality. Thanks.
Great Sermon! I totally agree about letting the world in. We are supposed to be a peculiar people. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. For those defending loudness, rock music, etc. I have this to say. When I was young, music in church was us, the congregation, singing praises to God, or singing the Psalms. It was worship. It was never a concert. Now it's a worship band performing. The congregation usually isn't singing. It's not worship, it's entertainment. Also, when choirs sang, they sang together. When I see worship leaders and their band perform, they are facing the audience not the altar. They are performing for the people. That's the difference. It also seems to produce a lot of pride. If you criticize volume, song choice, anything, you get usually the same reaction as if you criticized a rock star. To them it's a performance, and they aren't humble. Their pride is in their performance. The fact that its God's house, and it's for His glory, not theirs is forgotten. God doesn't have hit singles, or platinum albums
Gut-level Message Thank you Rev. Thomassian. This message moved me to the bottom of my heart! I don't doubt the sincerity of my prayers, or anyone else's, but I do wonder why our prayers are not more passionately pleading. There's certainly enough in the news every day to make us want to yearn for revival, more than anything else. God is able. He reigns from His throne. I believe that when the church worships God as their first love, and when our prayers for revival surpass our prayers for other matters, then our prayers WILL be passionate and our eyes heavy with tears, as were mine as I listened to your message. May God revive our hearts and grant us the grace to love Him above all!
Great Sermon! I'm broke down in tears over my own sin. About 15 years ago we experience a small movement of God in our church after a Bible conference we met every day for three weeks and I've never experienced anything since then seem so desolated times I needed to hear from God and I did this morning. Sad to say there's a great spiritual languishing in our church God help us maybe please to rend the heavens and visit us in our local churches.
