Great Sermon! I have thanked God many times for Pastor Mahan, and how this day I asked the Lord what was wrong with me, and He showed me. I never really knew how self-righteous I was until I heard this sermon. This is so freeing. Sadly, most Christians will never see how ugly their hearts are, so I believe this reinforces the sin of pride (which blinds men), to see their own self-righteousness.
I thank the Lord for showing me. This also reinforces why we are saved by grace, for if it is not of grace who then could be saved?
Incomplete Sermon Another one of Henry's great sermons. However, the sermon cuts off as he is speaking.
The topic is death of course. He goes into quite a bit of explanation regarding what the New Earth will be like and how we will look. Very informational. He brings together quite a bit of scripture in this sermon in order to help folks get a better understanding of what the elect can expect at the point of death.
Would like to have heard the whole sermon though.
Interesting Sermon For someone who isn't long for this earth, this particular sermon made me feel good. Henry never lets me down. He may not have as much insight as I would like for him to have sometimes, but he never lets me down in his sincerity & effort in preaching the true word of God.
The focal point of this sermon was that there are 3 types of death. They are 1. SPIRITUAL, 2. PHYSICAL, 3. ETERNAL. Henry also points out that all of these came as a result of Adam's fall. Henry also points out that God only created 1 man, not 2. Eve was taken from Adam, not created as Adam was.
There is much to be gleaned from this sermon. Different things depending on where you are in your own walk with God. With me, I am looking more for comfort in the leaving of this world. It's through Henry's preaching that I hear the voice of our Lord & am in fact comforted.
Do I always agree with everything that Henry says? No. But then I'm not supposed to. He's Henry and I am me. He sees things the way he does & I understand according to the understanding that God has given me. But, I look to Henry for understanding of God's word. It's his preaching

Outstanding Sermon This is one of Henry's best sermons. He brings so much life to the Word of God. He speaks about death in a realistic manner without being insulting or intimidating. He speaks with authority.
Henry Mahan is one of the greatest preachers of all time.
Outstanding Sermon As always Henry preaches the BEST! You just don't get any better than Henry.
The subject is a hard one for most people. I don't care how you preach it. People have issues with death.
In this case, as he mentions, that if you are near death or expecting death, then these words will come as a comfort & they indeed do. Knowing that my time here on this earth is short, I draw comfort from Henry's sermons on death because he knows the word of God & preaches true.
How I wish I could have sat in his church & listened to him in person, but I thank God that He allowed me the privilege of hearing Henry preach His word. Thank you Lord Jesus.
I want to give Christ the glory due Him in Truth I have prayed hard and with a heavy heart for believers to rightly divide the Word of God and I pray God gives me a heart to do it lovingly, but I despair that it very often does not happen. Men who have gloriously represented Christ as preachers of His Word don't always divide it correctly when it comes to Israel. God opened up the earth and swallowed up those Jews who rebelled against Him and His servant Moses. Were they saved simply because they were Jews. Of course not. That would be absurd to say. Not everyone who goes to church is saved either. Paul said that he is not a Jew which is one outwardly but he is a Jew which is one inwardly. Even so a Gentile is never a Jew. A Gentile may be saved and be the bride of Christ as the Church is described but he is never a Jew. All Israel, all those of Israel who are Jews inwardly will be saved. Their may be precious few of them but as Paul declares in Romans 11, God does not change His mind. The whole chapter of Romans 11 clearly speaks of Jew and Gentile as separate entities. In Revelation 12 it speaks of a lady that bore a son that the dragon sought to devour. That lady was Israel from whom Christ came. This lady is not the Church because the Church is presented as a virgin. This lady was kept safe 1260 days during the tribulation.
Surprising Sermon When I found this sermon I was expecting Henry to talk about the book of Philemon. He started out talking about it & then took the listener on an unexpected journey.
The best way I can describe it is that it was like being out on a nice sunny summer day in a convertible, just riding through the countryside, enjoying the beauty of God's world. That's what listening to this sermon was like for me.
Henry hit on many things, but kept it in the realm of grace, salvation, faith & the unending, enduring love of God. It worked, I don't know how, but it did & afterward I felt refreshed. That's Henry for you.
If you want to be refreshed, listen to this sermon.
There is an interesting story that Henry relates regarding a particular sheep named "Queenie". You'll like it & it is very applicable to true believers.
