Real blessing! This message is a real blessing!
When Jesus cried out from the cross, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me!!?", that is a forsaking that goes astronomically beyond any we as humans can conceive.
The unity of the Godhead had never known any internal separation, nor division, nor internal rejection...only perfect, untainted Love, because God IS Love.
Jesus, in His life in the form of a man, had never known anything but unblemished, incorruptible submission to His God and Father. Suddenly, there He is, the Lamb of God, bearing the sin of the world in His body on the tree, forsaken to suffer alone, that He should fulfill all that is written in the law and prophets to bring us to God.....and it was necessary the Father, with whom He had only ever known perfect unity and love, had to leave Him alone, carrying our condemnation.....because God so loved the whole world....and because God so hates sin.
Grace Reigns! Thank you brother for extolling the work of Christ, and for exhorting us to consider Him and what He has done.
Why would we go back to Sinai seeking to fulfil any of the law which he has so perfectly obeyed and paid in full on our behalf. A pleasing Aroma unto God - we rest in the Labour that He has performed.
'This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased - hear ye Him!'
Now, out of appreciation for what Christ has done we cry out with the Psalmist..' What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? We run to do his commands out of love to Him - looking diligently to attend to all of Christ's instruction to us.
This is the New Covenant that He has bought with His own precious blood! Oh believe it friends! He is not standing to threaten with Sinai's terrors. He has won our hearts by His love, and it is because we love Him that we keep His commands - not by the threats,and terrors of the Law. Let us leave it as obsolete, like Scripture tells us,embrace the New Covenant, and set our affections on things above where Christ is!
Permanent View is Biblical Another permanent view of marriage which I am convinced is the only true biblical position of marriage is also wonderfully upheld by Voddie Baucham and his sermons and the issue of marriage and divorce can be heard which is overwhelmingly convincing. A must listen sermon which may help give light to this difficult issue
Believe Christ's Word first 37:00 42:00 So much passion in rejecting God's Word. Christ was lying? Matt 19:6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate. Matt 1:19-20 Joseph, her HUSBAND, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, intended to DIVORCE her secretly. 20 But when he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, â€śJoseph, son of David, donâ€™t be afraid to take to yourself Mary, YOUR WIFE, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Listen to Richard Caldwell - the only permanence pastor found so far on SermonAudio. Fornication is unlawful intercourse before marriage, as is still the legal definition.
This Is A Great Message! Thank you for uploading this. What a reminder for me to hear what happens to those who are not the Lord's own & to not forget having compassion instead of annoyance, to pray for the lost. Sometimes, by the way we treat the lost, from our high position (in the Lord), we act like we are there by our own actions & not by God's & was never one of the "...and such were some of you."
Great Sermon! I love you. Please pray for me (Jason Deffenbaugh) to surrender completely and to stop being Luke warm. I willingly sin and it is killing me inside. I need prayers. Thank you so much.
Great Sermon! Your teaching was so very helpful. I lost my only 2 children (boys) when they were 25 & 26. My husband passed away April of this year. My siblings are 1 brother and 4 sisters who abandoned me after my children died. I do not know why they did this nor has anyone given me any insight. Iâ€™m needy for sure, however, God has provided for me, just the day to day things to make life so sweet. Praying for my family is what I do because I love them dearly no matter how they act. My joy is in the Lord because ultimately everything belongs to Him!! I am forever grateful. Thanks
Best Sermon I've Ever Heard What a powerful message. I am truly blessed to have heard it. It puts Christianity and our relationship to God and what Jesus has done for us into proper perspective.
It's a hard hitting message and you may be tempted to turn it off part way through. Please don't. You need to hear all of it.
And after listening to this message we Christians need to follow it up with learning who/what we now are/have in Christ.
Best sermon Tim Conway has done! I have probably heard hundreds of his sermons, but this had me transfixed. His unusually quiet delivery in this, coupled with his descriptions of the wrath of God, literally make your hair stand on end. This is the current version of Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God for our time. If he delivered this live in a church filled with the Holy Spirit, people would be holding the edges of the pews to keep from sliding into hell, like they did with Jonathan Edwards. You can tell the Holy Spirit was speaking through him on this one, because he sounds so different. ( Not trying to imply that the Spirit never speaks through him at other times. Only that his normal distinctive speech patterns are missing)
Great Sermon! This is so true. Some of the biggest disputes I've had with believers were over their unbelief that something was possible. We SAY I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, but for most it's just a cliche. I was raised in a family that believed deeply in God's sovereignty. The problem was, this was the excuse for never praying anything but the most routine of prayers. Ex: we wouldn't ask God to heal someone, because He knew they were sick and if He planned to heal them, He would heal them. Listening to George Mueller changed all of that for me. God started to answer prayers. Then, Christians would get angry, and say, You can't ask God for that! Why not? He can always say no. If we started asking God for things expecting He might do them, how might our lives change, and what glory might we see? God wants to use us to gain glory for Himself. How can He do that if we are always secondguessing what kinds of ways God will use to gain glory?
He will sometimes answer a prayer and do something extraordinary, just so other people know beyond a doubt it's a miracle! Or to enlarge someone 's faith. Let's be honest with ourselves. Are we really afraid of presumption or do we just lack faith God can do it.
