"You're Visiting a New Church, How Do You Know If It's the Right One for You?"
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 13:18-21 where Christ provides 2 parables (short stories with spiritual meaning):
1. the parable of THE MUSTARD SEED
2. the parable of LEAVEN
The simple point in these parables is this: the kingdom of God grows -- and it will grow -- till it reaches and permeates the world & nothing can stop or hinder this growth!
This message also covers what the kingdom of God, how the Old Testament & New Testament speak of this Kingdom & surveys the concept of the kingdom in Luke's gospel.
Listen to this message & be encouraged that God's Kingdom cannot be stopped!
Pastor Geoff preaches at a Senior Living Home during the chapel service. He shows how evil and corrupt our day is -- just like Micah's day in the 8th century BC. God sent Micah to prophesy of coming judgment upon the sinful nation of Israel and yet God gave hope in the coming One -- the Prince of Peace -- who is our Peace.
This message talks about the coming 1,000 earthly kingdom when the Lord Jesus Christ will descend from heaven (2nd coming, Revelation 19:11-21) and then establish His kinship on earth from Zion with worldwide peace and worship of the LORD (Revelation 20:1-10). This will endure for 1,000 years.
Get right with this King and repent of your sin & trust in Him today!
"Jesus Heals a Sick Woman on the Sabbath: Some Glorify God & Some Rage Against God!"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's gospel. In Luke 13:10, Luke begins a new travel unit narrative that journeys through the final couple of months of Christ's life before the Passion Week. In Luke 13:10-17:10, we have the final travels and teachings and conflicts of the final months of Christ's life.
This story in 13:10-17 is of Jesus healing a 'bent double' woman in a Synagogue on the Sabbath. Christ by His power supernaturally heals and reveals His overwhelming tenderness toward the hurting woman & His overwhelming power of Satan, the Evil One.
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of the Cross on the streets of St Louis, MO and talks about what it means that Jesus was forsaken by the Father on Calvary when the Father crushed Him as Christ bore our curse.
Pastor Geoff preaches on the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the streets of St Louis, MO during a busy afternoon rush. He shows from Scripture the absolute necessity of the bodily, physical, literal resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. Repent and believe in Him!
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through the Gospel of Luke. Luke 12:1-13:9 is one unit -- it's a traveling narrative as Jesus speaks to thousands of people as He journeys in Judea.
In this text, Luke 13:1-9, Jesus calls all those who hear Him to repent for if they do not they will perish!
This message speaks of the DEMAND for repentance (unless you repent you'll perish) and the DESCRIPTION of genuine repentance (fruitbearing & the parable of the barren fig tree).
Listen to this exposition & ask yourself: "have I genuinely repented?" Turn from your wicked ways and live!
In this message, pastor Geoff covers a very real and troubling topic so that we as believers will understand what the Bible says and that we will view this issue through the lens of Scripture with a biblical worldview.
Abortion is the murder of children -- the taking of human life.
in this message, Pastor Geoff defines what abortion is, shows why it's sinful, exhorts us to take action and gives many practical steps, and even shares how to conduct oneself and what to say while at the abortion mills calling out to the dads and moms.
Listen to this message and let us courageously stand for life and speak for those who have no voice.
Pastor Geoff preaches Habakkuk 2:4 on "The just will live by his faith" and then moves to Galatians 3:10-14 and shows how sinners can be justified before God by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
This message speaks about the meaning of faith, the sufficiency of Christ, the exclusivity of Christ, and the perfection of Christ's sacrifice.
This sermon was preached as a preparation for the Lord's Supper.
Pastor Geoff proclaims the glories of Jesus Christ in the open air in St Louis, MO. The gospel compels us to love sinners and thus to urge them to fly from the wrath to come and to find refuge and safety in the righteousness of Christ! Repent of sin! Trust in Christ alone!
Pastor Geoff concludes Luke 12 and preaches the unit where Christ was addressing the massive crowds (Luke 12.1, many thousands) and here in this paragraph Jesus exhorts all the hearers to urgently make a decision to be reconciled to God through Christ before it's too late.
The door of grace is open! The door of opportunity is available! Come to Christ now! Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts!
Pastor Geoff preaches on Habakkuk 2:4 - the just shall live by faith and calls all men and women on the streets of St Louis, Missouri to come to Christ by faith alone & in so doing, God reckons Christ's righteousness to them and treats them as justified sinners.
The doctrine of justification is the heart & central organ of the gospel.
Sinners are justified by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
Pastor Geoff preaches in the open air that God is slow to anger & great in power. In this sermon on the streets of St Louis, Pastor Geoff preaches that all must take action now by repenting of sin & fleeing to Jesus Christ for safety from coming wrath!
