Excellent Teaching Plain speaking truth about God and sin. Where does evil come from? Ask the question and answer in the fact of God's complete Sovereignty. W.J.Mencarow in this sermon brings us to deal with our trials and tribulations and why? The big question we sometimes cry out Why?
Thank you for good teaching and good doctrine.
Brave Sermon! Evil is good twisted; all He had to do was create less-than-perfect beings to get it. Those who repent with His Helper within them become perfected and wanted by Him-refinement is the name of this process. For this, God alone get the praise and glory!

Great Sermon! Thank you for speaking out on a subject that riles most people not to mention Christians. I have had a time and a half trying to convince people of the total sovereignty of God. I find the very people that resist this notion are the ones who haven't been broken yet.

Pt 2-You think you've heard it all? Think again! Pt 2-
If youâ€™re still saying, â€śThat makes God unjust; That's unfair; That's not the God of the Bible; My God would never do that; That would mean God is evilâ€ť etc. Then you are forsaking Godâ€™s Word and suppressing the truth in unrighteousness, for you are thinking that God is altogether like you. And it is no light matter, but wickedness!
The cry from most church pews across the land is, â€śProphesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceitsâ€ť! [Isa. 30:10]. And sadly even the majority of those who claimed to be â€śReformedâ€ť are reformed in name only. They preach a God who is foreign to the Scriptures. The Day cometh when God shall tell them what He told Jobâ€™s counselors, i.e. â€śMy wrath is kindled against thee, and against
thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of Me the thing that is rightâ€ť! Until then let us praise God for men like Pastor Mencarow who are contending for the Faith and telling the truth like it is.
I exhort those of you who are reading this comment to listen to the other
sermons in this series for there is much in them to profit your soul.

Pt 1-You think you've heard it all? Think again! The Queen of Sheba had heard of the fame and wisdom of Solomon, but when she came and saw it for herself she exclaimed, â€śBehold, the half was not told me!â€ť
You think youâ€™ve heard it all? Think again! Especially those of you who rejoice in the truth of Godâ€™s sovereignty and take pride in
being a â€śCalvinist.â€ť Hereâ€™s a sermon that brings to light and expounds
all those â€śdifficultâ€ť and â€ścontroversialâ€ť scriptures about Godâ€™s
Absolute Sovereignty which many a so called Calvinist[with a concern for
Godâ€™s reputation] has explained away. Almost all the verses which show
God to be the Absolute sovereign, not just over the â€śgoodâ€ť but even over
the â€śevilâ€ť[not â€ścalamityâ€ť(sic)]Pastor Mencarow masterfully sets forth
In everything we are to give thanks. This includes good and evil. This concept is foreign to many because the nature of man gravitates toward likening God to man. God reproves the wicked saying, â€śthou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself!â€ť[Psa.
50:21] But God is not a man! [Num. 23:19]
Continued in pt. 2 below.
Great Sermon! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Great Sermon! Finally a pastor who cares more about the praises of God than the praises of men. Preaching the word as it should be preached, with boldness and truth. Praise the Lord for Mr. Mencarow, because many others either avoid it or dilute the meaning of Evil in Isaiah 45:7. With the exception of the King James Version, you even have the modern translations out there and surprisingly the New King James Version that replaced the word Evil for Calamity meaning God's just judgment on a nation. So now after hearing this sermon with bible in hand a person with ears to hear can finally know where Evil comes from and reject those traditional responses as, it comes from the devil or the most popular "Well you know God has made man with a free will to choose bad or good." Thank you for the message.
Great Sermon! A must to hear! I pray all will have the courage to listen to this sermon. Listen in prayer, search the scriptures as the Bereans did and praise God for this truth. This sermon is needed yet has either been avoided, circumspected, attempted to explain in terms that would satisify our "perception" of God or dismissed as "God can't create evil!". I thank God that He gave the courage to Pastor Mencarow to preach this sermon with such great humility.
Knowing that God is sovereign over everything is such encouragement and comfort. During the worst of trials we can rejoice knowing this truth.
