Great Sermon! Yes!
We glorify our LORD on Calvory (Luke9:23) more than on the mountain where we see HIS glory(Luke 9:28~26). Just believe, and out of faith we obey HIM.Then,sooner or later HE will let us see HIS glory(John 11:40), for all things work together for good to them that love HIM(Room8:28).Love can not grow in us without faith in HIM.Believe! Trust and obey!
Rom8:14~16, Hebrew 11:39,2Corinthans13:5 I want to say,if one is saved,the LORD will let them know, they also know that. True Christians surrender (true faith ) to their LORD, the LORD knows them(Corinthan8:3)and shows them HIS approvals (John14:15~23).They don't need to ask others if they're saved or not.Only the Owner of Paradise can give permission to people.HE is the One we need to seek ,rely and follow.Not any human beings,neither Peter, Paul(1Corinthan1:12~13),nor Calvin or anyone else. When people truely live in the wonderful love of the LORD,they won't give up such great enjoyment to go back to love the worldly and fleshly things(Psalm 119).It is unworthy to exchange.Although they fail sometimes,they will go back to their Savior and Lord for sure, as king Davis, Simpson etc.These people don't want other choices, for the LORD is the most precious over everything to them(Luke14:25~27).They don't have other choices neither(Hebrew:4~8). And the LORD keep them to HIM too(1Peter1:5,Rom14:4)(1John4:19,2Corinthan5:14~15).HE won't forsake them for HE bought them with HIS precious blood(John10:27~30) Keep seeking,asking,knocking and believing, you will get bless from HIM for sure (Hebrew 11:6,Luke11ďĽš9). This is my experience. GOD bless you! HIS will be done!
John UK wrote: Sure, and when the fruits show up or don't show up, then you know. Where's the problem?
Luke 12:8~9,2 Timothy2:12 I am sad and scared when this kind of things happen,e.g.Demas, King Saul(1Samuel10:6,9,15:35), and other 'draw back unto perdition'people(Hebrew 10:39,6:4~8).I pray GOD don't let them go too far to turn back. Come to Christ, and keep ask, seek, knock, believe, surrender.HE is always pitiful to these people!
Who has the right to claim if others are saved? Romans8:14~16,Hebrews11:39, 2Corinthians13:5. Let's pray for them.Hope they keep ask, seek and knock, and our LORD shows grace to them. It's realy a tragedy.
The Lord Jesus Christ does not â€śrapâ€ť nor does HE â€śrockâ€ť.
HE IS HOLY.
Sorry you boys miss this. I canâ€™t help but wonder if you all have the Spirit of God in you.
The reasons to reject CCM are manifold.
How can you miss them them?
â€˘What is the origin of rock and rap? Why donâ€™t you care? â€˘What kind of people perform CCM? (ignorant, worldly, foolish, vain) Who do they admire? â€˘What kind of fruit has it produced? Ignorant, worldy, foolish, vainâ€¦.
1 John 2:15b If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
This is simple stuff, how is it that you miss it? Is it not because you love your lust more than the truth?
