Compelling & Stirring Sermon! Sept. 7, 2005
What a compelling and stirring sermon this is!
This sermon made us rejoice that we fear the Lord, for we know it was for us the beginning of wisdom.
How very relevant this message is in the wake of the devastating Tsunami that struck S.E. Asia, and the great hurricane that God visited upon our own nation more recently. Since these disasters struck, we have been praying that the terrifying and fearful force of these events would instill in many trembling hearts the fear of the Lord.
As two sinners who by God's grace, have passed from death into life, it is our prayer that God will be pleased to save a great multitude in times such as these, when the sea and waves are roaring and men's hearts are failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth. (Luke 21:25)
What a great encouragement we find in this sermon to pray for these things, when we consider that our gracious God awakened the hearts of the heathen mariners aboard the ship with Jonah.
Our thanks again to Rev. Greer, and Sermon Audio for giving us access to his Spirit-filled ministry of the word!

Great Sermon! Don't miss this one! I have listened to several of the Rev. John Greer's sermons and this is one of my favorites. An excellent exposition of Jonah 1. Heathen sailors, a runaway prophet, a supernatural storm. I felt as if I was aboard the ship. Listen for yourself and see how the Lord works in all who were on the boat with Jonah.
