I canâ€™t say that I havenâ€™t heard the Gospel!! Pastor Shepardâ€™s experience and discernment is evident in his preaching. I know many people, including everyone close to me, who would say that kind of preaching kills churches. They would get up and ask about outreach meetings and a whole host of things that they expect to be going on during the week. Sovereign Grace is something they donâ€™t/wonâ€™t talk about.
What goes on in my heart makes me realise how wretched I am and that, if I am saved, I will be saved from myself. Thank you pastor. I hope you will be enabled to continue preaching.
Blessed Sermon! Came across this sermon while doing a search on the subject of a believers two natures. I, like many others, took for granted that the two nature theory was biblical and accurate. I believed in it because a well known pastor said it was true, and I was too ignorant (and lazy) to check it out for myself. Thank you Pastor Gary for the work you did in bringing light to this subject and for helping a wondering, ignorant sheep from going too far astray.
Great Sermon! Edifying message. The elect do not defile themselves with the harlot, dead religion. We rest in Him. "We are not following to achieve something", the deceived don't get it. They sneak in their works, either through Arminianism or Reformed Calvinism, some combine bits and pieces from both. They follow teachers of men, like Calvin, and feast on the lie, like Calvins heretical 'third law' dung. Or Spurgeon, who mixed truth with error, which is nothing but the lie, who sang the praises of heretic Wesley. They hold fast to man's doctrine like progressive sanctification, which shows they do not comprehend Christ has put away sin. They scream antinomian, yet they themselves are daily law breakers. The remnant obey His commandments, loving the brethren, and by the power of the Spirit obey the likes of Gal.5.
Reverence for God causes hatred for all that is false, we cut those who preach and follow that which is false NO slack.
We follow Christ, not man made camps like Arminianism, reformed Calvinism, or sovereign grace. These are 666, the inventions of men, teaching doctrines of men, imperfect and of the flesh. They compromise, they do not follow the true Lamb."those that Christ speaks of as following Him, they follow the teachings of His apostles"- amen Gary
Great Sermon! Excellent message. We see great delusion everywhere, professing religious folks saying you have to repent of your sins, you have to obey the law, you have to do x y and z. These religious zealots do not know grace, or the true Christ. They like to label God's elect with false accusations like feminist, or antinomian. They are fools. They call Christ's elect antinomian because they can't discern the difference between law and gospel. They compromise and embrace errors, like God loves all, Christ died for all, etc. As Gary said, that's a delusion. They embrace false teachers like Billy Graham, they are clueless to the mystery of iniquity. Their religion points them to self,you better be morally upright, you better be prim and proper. They know nothing of imputed rightepusness.
They then point out the sins of others, blinded to their own wicked blackened hearts, deceived by their pseudo jesus, which is none other than Satan. These zealots are deluded, and this is the will of God. praise God for His saving, electing grace and imputed righteousnessâť¤ď¸Źâśťď¸Ź
Great Sermon! This was an excellent, Christ centered message. Praise God for faithful men like brother Gary, there are far more charlatans than true men of God here on SA and throughout the world. Thank God for His truth and His faithful preachersâť¤ď¸Źđź‘Ť
Great Sermon! Brother Gary, what a blessing to my soul was this sermon.I would not attend my Motherâ€™s funeral mass at her catholic building and was frowned upon by many family members who thought it was mean and unloving, they are religious but not in Christ.
The verse that gave me strength and comfort .â€ťLovest thou Me more than theseâ€ť?
Thank you and May God continue to Bless His Word through your faithful preaching.
Great Sermon! great message brother Gary!"There'll be so many that gather on this day in our area and throughout the whole earth this morning in the name of God in the name of Jesus in the name of righteousness, but they will perish unless God saves them mercifully because the ONLY righteousness they know is the one that THEY perform"----amen. May God receive ALL glory for His truth, His righteousness, His salvation HIS WAY.
