Great Sermon! I agree with you 100%, however I think it is Ok to say I have given my life over to Chris because He has saved me, and this fact is evident because He has turned my life around. Internal conditions are not always evidenced outside but behaviour changes are. As long as the person is not putting faith in any-thing but Christ...
Decent sermon Repentance is a fruit of being born again, Romans 2:4 tells Gods goodness leadeth us to repentance. Repent is an action to turn from and turn toward God faith in Jesus Christ, we can have a change of mind or heart anytime but by his Spirit being born of God
Great Sermon! Another great sermon from pastor Bill Parker from Colossians 2 1-7. So clear and a blessing. Establishing true believers in the faith of Christ. Do hear it. Thank you Pastor Bill for your faithfulness.
Great Sermon! Pastor Parker, I have a question. Was Satan not judged and cast out of heaven when Jesus died on Calvary, so he could no longer accuse God's people of their sins before God as they were imputed to Christ on Calvary where He died. He had access into heaven until the cross to accuse God's people like he did with Job. But after the cross he was denied entrance into heaven as he was judged at Calvary and cast out.
This is what I understand after listening to this sermon. I do believe he is cast out of our hearts when one is born again by the Holy Spirit, even though Satan tries to accuse us in our hearts.
But when we look at the scriptures we know that he cannot accuse us anymore Right?
Amazing Grace. The truth is that I'm adulterer and a murderer every day that I live. I'm a sinner! It surprises me every day how mush so, self righteousness rises even in me! Amazing really.
Amazing Grace indeed. As I write I know myself to be a liar too.
Awe. When I heard Pastor Shepard say that He willed that His people should be where He is, and that included the cross, like the thief, I couldn't help saying 'remember me Lord'. He is the potter and I'm the clay in His grace!
Great Sermon! Pastor Parker
SDA today are saying they are saved without the keeping of the law, but their works of love are proof they are saved. But that is not so. Our proof that we are saved before God is that we believe in the blood and righteousness of Jesus alone imputed for our salvation. But we look to Jesus as our whole salvation. I know that we receive the Holy Spirit when we are justified but not to keep the law for our salvation, but make us know we are no longer condemned and now we are reconciled to God in Christ alone by His blood and righteousness imputed and gives us the power to live a new spiritual life to walk with Him.
Satan is trying so hard to destroy the truth of the being saved by the imputed righteousness of Christ alone before God.
I used to be an SDA and am so happy to be delivered from such a deception.
Thank you for your wonderful sermons.
Great Sermon! You mentioned in one of your sermons of a book you had written that was free for the asking. I'd like that book.
My comment on the Righteousness of God was very fulfilling and informative. Great sermon.
Great Sermon! Thank you pastor Bill Parker explaining scripture regarding the scepter of Judah.
Yes many people get stirred up when you mention anything about Israel the nation and ethnic Jews.
Jesus is the true Israel of God and Christians make up the Body of Christ
over which he is head. This makes us one - the Israel of God.
The one who said, I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am (he), ye shall die in your sins(Jhn 8:24) and further, Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it V 44, cannot be disputed. Seems that this is the end of the argument as to who true Israel.
Everyone has to become a new creature in Christ under the new creation. All are dead until Christ resurrects then by faith. This is why he said "I am the Resurrection."
No resurrection. No life; only condemnation.
