Praise be to God! If you don't have time to listen to this whole sermon, just listen to the second half. It is a flowing doxology to the Almighty God and to his Son. May the Lord increase His Spirit in each of us and enable us to praise Him with this kind of passion and truth. At the end, there is a beautiful parable of Jesus traveling so far in order to save us, and the dreadful danger we face if we reject Him.
Brilliant sermon! Wow! One of the best sermons I've ever heard on this chapter. It captured the passion of this portion of God's word - the crescendo of promises related by Gabriel, etc.
I also appreciated the serious warning to unbelievers at the end.
Great Sermon! I had to really cry out to the Lord, for messages like this. I almost gave up that there were preachers like this that were real.
Thanks to Almighty God , He heard the cries of our hearts.
A must hear sermon! Amazing sermon! Paul Washer taught me things that I have never heard of. He makes you re-evaluate your life and find out if you have been following God like a true Christian should. Everyone who professes Christ should listen to this sermon.
Volume issues make this unlistenable I'm sorry. I really wanted to hear this topic, but even with headphones, I couldn't do it. It's probably due to mic issues; he obviously isn't used to talking into a mic. In most sentences, he starts out almost yelling, then finished the sentence so softly that even with the volume all the way up, I could barely make it out. I wouldn't mind keeping the volume all the way up, but then at the beginning of the next sentence, he's yelling out of zealousness. I hate to complain. In the 8 years I've been listening to SermonAudio, this is the very first time, I switched a sermon off due to recording issues. Perhaps they can fix it and reupload.
Wonderful! Thank-you for this important reminder of how great our Father loves His children!! â€śHe loves us! He loves us! He loves us!â€ť May our hearts be opened to embrace His precious love and desire to swim in it. This moved me to tears. God bless you richly.
So very true! Some young people argue doctrine just for the sake of being proven right, and showing how pious they are. Unfortunately, the Pharisees did likewise. Even with their correct theology, and unsurpassed evangelistic efforts, they had no charity or "agape" love. It only contributed to their pride. Most need humility more than they need more learning.
Great Sermon! This was one of the hardest lessons I learned in the Christian life. Our struggle is against principalities and powers. When enemies come against us, they are usually either brainwashed by the world or are unwittingly being used by the devil as a tool. By praying for them, we can not only save them, but reduce their attack against us. For they really know not what they do.
Great Sermon! Paul Washer makes some good points. He acknowledges that secular rap is sinful, but argues that a sinful art form can be transformed and used for that which is good. I would agree as long as it doesn't stir up sensual desires, because when people become born again, they have become new creatures with a desire for holiness. Therefore, they will want music that stirs up that desire rather than desires that are contrary to God's Word. When I listened to Christian rap, it did not put me in the mood to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, but made me feel more like dancing in a sensual way. (For a sermon which points out this danger and other dangers of Christian rap, I would recommend "Weighing Rap & Hip-Hop" by Chris Hand.) Though I'm not in agreement with Paul Washer on Christian rap, I'm in complete agreement with him on what it means to be saved. When people become saved, they will not continue to live in sin, but will seek to live a holy life. This is the evidence of true conversion.
Great Sermon! So convicting. The Lord has let me see how wretched of a mom I have been. May we all strive to understand what a true servant is and there is no way unless The Lord opens our hearts and eyes and leads us to Himself.
Thank you Lord for servants like Paul Washer to preach truth.
I feel like Job tested by God I lost the court battle over guardianship of our 2 small children. My wife found online a "friend" who is now her boyfriend (adultery) and on Nov.12 last year she simply took the kids with her and unexpectedly just disappeared. When I came from work in the evening they were gone. I am a Christian and I raised the kids with occasional physical punishment when they did something bad or intentionally broke the rules. There are verses in the Bible to support physical punishment in order to teach the children rules and discipline. I myself was raised the same way and I am now thankful to my believing parents for every baci that I got as a child although that time I didn't like it. But now my wife with her boyfriend prepared everything with some female lawyer to claim that I was violating German laws when I was punishing the children physically. So all the judges even at the Court of Appeals dismissed my case very harshly, ignored the adultery and all my other reasonable claims because I even used verses from Luther Bible as my defence. How dared I to put God's Laws above their all-best-knowing German Laws? I can be glad I am not in jail right now but, of course, they let me pay the court expenses. So now I am alone, depressed, did't see the kids for 6 months, crying to God like Job...
