Psalm 134 is the last of the 15 'songs of ascents' (Psalms 120-134) which was the pilgrim's mini-hymnal that they would sing as they traveled from their homes to Zion for the 3 pilgrimage festivals (Passover, Booths, Pentecost).
In Psalm 134, we are told to 'bless the LORD.' This psalm teaches us about true worship.
In this sermon we learn about:
the PREEMINENCE of worship
the PRAISE of worship
the PEOPLE of worship
the PURITY of worship
the POSTURE of worship
the PLACE of worship
the PERSON of worship
the PATH of worship
May God awaken His people today as to the unspeakable privilege and the glorious duty of worshiping Him in spirit and truth.
"Sins That You Must Guard Against As Followers of Christ!"
Pastor Geoff provides 6 declarative statements about UNITY among the people of God from Psalm 133.

Then the message concludes by showing how we at CFBC can have church unity.
Pastor Geoff pleads with sinners on the streets of ST Louis & shows how sinful all humanity is & how Christ is God's provision to escape punishment for our sin. No one can ward off God's hand.
"You Can Trust In Your Faithful God! The Blessings of God Upon the Place of Worship!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 132 which is an important theological, historical, poetic, God-centered masterpiece to instruct the people of God about the faithfulness of God, His unfailing covenant with David (and David's royal lineage), and the blessings that come upon God's place of worship!
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's gospel and concludes chapter 11 with the lunch 'meal-scene' that Jesus has at the home of a Pharisee. In this astounding text, our sovereign Lord pronounces six 'woe' (eternally damning) curses upon the Pharisees and the lawyers [=scribes] of the day. He exposes their hypocrisy, their pride, and their hatred for the people of God and for the Lord Himself.
Listen to this message and 'examine yourself & see whether you are in the faith'. Make sure these 7 marks do NOT describe you. For if they do, you must repent, turn from your sin and trust in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation from divine judgment.
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel to the folks living at the Senior Living facility in St Louis, MO and shows the folly of pride and judgment that will come upon all the arrogant who reject Christ!
Listen to this message on pride & how Christ is the Humble One who came and died for His own! Repent & follow Him!
Pastor Geoff heralds the gospel on the streets of St Louis during the loud & rowdy Mardi Gras festival in February of 2016. He proclaims the One, true, and Living God and calls on all men and women to flee from sin & fly to Christ for salvation from divine wrath!
Pastor Geoff preaches the "Woes" from Isaiah 5 when God pronounces divine curses ('woe' judgments) upon the wicked who rise early to pursue strong drink and those who are heroes at drinking alcohol and who refuse to bow to God and follow Him.
In this message, Pastor Geoff earnestly pleads with the multitudes at the STL Mardi Gras festival to flee from sin and from debauchery and to fly to the mighty Refuge, the Lord Jesus Christ.
This message calls on all men and women to repent of sin & trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life!
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 130 and shows how this chapter reveals God's gospel -- for it is all about God! This is the Romans 3 of the Old Testament.
If God should mark our iniquities. That is, if God kept a record of them or if God imputed them to our account, who could possibly stand? Answer: none of us. Actually, there is One who could stand -- the Lord Jesus Christ. But God crushed Him so that we, who could not stand, may stand by faith in Christ and as we stand in His righteousness!
Listen to this magnificent psalm as it is explained and as the gospel of God's grace is trumpeted forth!
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 11:14-26 which comprises an exorcism miracle and then a subsequent conflict that erupts because of Christ's powerful works.
It is an amazing narrative because the miracle itself (the exorcism) only occupies one verse! All of the remaining verses in the chapter deal with the virulent hostility and the surging animosity that soars because of Christ's powerful and undeniable works.
Listen to this message which focuses on Christ's almighty power over Satan, over the kingdom of darkness, and over sin! Our Savior, the Lord Jesus, has come and has defeated and destroyed the works of the devil!
Let us rejoice in Him! Let us cast our souls on Him! Let us rely fully and comfortably in Him!
Pastor Geoff preaches Isaiah 55 and pleads with hundreds of passers-by to repent of sin and follow Christ Jesus the Lord. God is calling sinners to come, buy, eat, and drink of the water of life for free -- without cost!

This message deals with the great and large promises that God gives to us as His beloved children. We are invited to Ask! and Seek! and Knock! Let us pray with confidence and hold God to His Word!
