Pastor Geoff continues the study on the Sermon on the Mount and looks at the section on 'loving our enemies.' This section contains the conduct of Christ's kingdom citizens -- what sort of lives should we live?
In this message, two main points are discussed:
1. The ultimate exhortation to love your enemies
2. The ultimate example to love your enemies
Listen to this sermon & specifically apply it to your life.
"The Mighty Angel & The Little Book that John Is Told to Eat!"
In this chapter in the Book of Revelation, Pastor Geoff shows how the Lord gives John a sort of interlude -- a respite -- as John beholds a strong angel who comes down and delivers the message that "there will be delay no longer!" The time of God's patience is drawing to a close. The age of divine wrath will be 'complete' in the 7th Trumpet (which then unleashes the 7 bowl judgments).
John, in the Old Testament prophetic way, is told to eat the scroll -- the Word of God -- and it will be sweet in his mouth but bitter in his stomach.
Tom Rayborn preaches on the brevity of life, on the horrors of sin, and on the sureness of hell for all who remain unbelieving. He calls and pleads with sinners to repent and come to Christ!
In this teaching session, Pastor Geoff works through the middle set of Tribulation judgments (the 7 Trumpet Judgments) and specifically looks at the 5th and 6th Trumpet Judgments and the monstrous demonic invasions that will occur during this future period. The 5th trumpet will be an unleashing of demons to torment people for 5 months. The 6th demonic invasion will bring death to 1/3 of the world's population at that time.
Listen to this message to understand more of God's judgment that will come upon a world that has refused to repent and turn to Christ!
Repent! Turn from your sins! Flee from the wrath to come! Find shelter and safety in Christ Jesus alone!
"The Blessings & Woes of Christ's Sermon on the Mount/Plain"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff provides the background and introduction to the Sermon on the Mount (or in Luke, "the Sermon on the Plain"). This sermon occurs in Matthew 5-7 and in Luke 6:20-49.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff begins the series by teaching on the "Blessings and Woes" of the sermon. Christ draws the line in the sand and puts all men into one of two categories -- either those who are His kingdom citizens or those who are not; those who are like the world or those who are not; those who are blessed by God or those who are cursed by God.
Listen tot his message & examine your heart and see whether you truly are characterized Christ's own kingdom citizens.
Pastor Geoff describes the 'pulpit' of the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus did not preach this in a large cathedral or at a church conference. He preached this in the open air with masses of crowds that had gathered around Him.
In this Resurrection Day message, Pastor Geoff works phrase by phrase through Hebrews 13:20 and shows how the author of Hebrews presents the Lord Jesus Christ:
1. Jesus is Living
2. Jesus is Loving
3. Jesus is Redeemer
4. Jesus is LORD
Listen to this message & be reminded of the foundational and essential truths of Christianity!
"Is Homosexuality & Same-Sex Attraction Sinful? The Need for Gays to Repent and Come to Christ!"
Pastor Geoff Kirkland (of Christ Fellowship Bible Church) provides a brief-message on the issue of 'homosexuality' and he shows from the Bible, the perfect Word of God, that all homosexual activity (including Same-Sex attraction, SSA) is sinful and those who find themselves engulfed in this lifestyle must repent or they will perish in hell.
The grace of God remains available for all to hear the gospel, repent of sin (turn!) and to flee to Jesus Christ so that they can be forgiven of their sin and escape the coming wrath of God!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Ps 114 and shows how God manifested His power with Israel in the Old Testament -- from Sinai, to bringing them out of Egypt, to parting the Red Sea, to splitting the Jordan River.
And the way that God commands all the earth -- and all people -- to respond to Him is to 'tremble'!
Listen to this sermon & stand in awe of God's power!
"The Trumpet Judgments of the Future Tribulation Period!"
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Book of Revelation and here he teaches on the 2nd series of 'seven judgments' in the future Tribulation period -- the 'trumpet judgments.'
Revelation 8 contains the first four of the seven trumpet judgments (the final three are contained in Revelation 9).
Listen to this exposition through the text. See how important it is to interpret Revelation with a normal, plain, straightforward hermeneutic (=interpretation) so as to read God's Word plainly as he intended to convey it.
"The Monumental Moment of Selecting the 12 Apostles! God Uses Ordinary People for His Glory!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through the Gospel of Luke and speaks about how Christ prayed all night, how he chose the 12 Apostles, and how he possessed all power to heal disease and manifest His glory.
Be encouraged that God uses weak, ordinary people to serve Him so that He receives all the glory!
Pastor Geoff asks the question: "What is true saving faith?" We know that salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone. But what is it to 'believe in Jesus Christ for eternal life'? What does this look like?
In this 17-minute audio, Pastor Geoff works through the Scriptures to show that biblical saving faith is a repenting faith and one that turns from sin, submits to the Lordship of Christ, and surrenders to Him as he follows Christ and abides in His Word.
A faith that saves is a faith that repents, works, obeys, and demonstrates itself in active service and heart-felt and worshipful obedience to Christ as sovereign Lord & King.
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches Proverbs 8:32 and shows that we must (1) hear the Word & (2) apply the Word.
Then he provides six very practical steps to diligently hearing and applying the Word of God when it's preached. How do we profit from the Word? How must be listen to sermons? How do we really change because of them?
"The 144,000 Jews & The Great Multitude Saved During the Tribulation!"
In this message, Pastor Geoff works through Revelation 7 and shows how God will save people during the future time of "Great Tribulation" -- the time of Jacob's Trouble (the 70th week of Daniel):
1) 144,000 ethnic, Jewish people
2. A great multitude from every nation, tribe, tongue, and people (Gentiles)
In this section, we learn that God will pour out saving mercy on many even in the midst of future trouble on earth. And we see that God is not through with the nation of Israel yet. Has God rejected His people (Israel), has he? By no means!
