Pastor Geoff preaches Titus 2.1 at a local church in the St Louis area. May God remind true believers why every faithful local church must prioritize and uphold the regular, consistent, passionate, and expositional preaching of the Word of God.
Pastor Geoff preaches through Isaiah 8 -- how to make your crisis into a sanctuary.
1. you must have the RIGHT TRUST.
2. you must have the RIGHT FEAR.
3. you must have the RIGHT AUTHORITY.
This sermon goes through Isaiah 7 --
1. Misplaced Trust (1-9)
2. Majestic Truth (10-16)
3. Miserable Trials (17-25)
Trust God! Don't trust in self or in others! But throw yourself on God & Him alone!
Pastor Geoff preaches Mark 1.21-28 in the Wednesday night prayer meeting & Bible study. We see the *unrivaled authority* of Jesus Christ -- in 2 ways:
1. Christ's authority WHEN HE TAUGHT THE TRUTH (21-22)
2. Christ's authority WHEN HE EXPELLED THE DEMON (23-28)
What power our Savior has! What authority! What a commanding boldness He exemplified!
This sermon surveys all of Isaiah 6 -- God is HOLY HOLY HOLY.
1. SIGHT - Isaiah saw the LORD (1-4)
2. INSIGHT - Isaiah saw himself (5-7)
3. MISSION - Isaiah saw the need (8-12)
4. FAITH - Isaiah saw the hope (13b)
This sermon expounds Mark 1:16-20 when Jesus walks by the Sea of Galilee and calls two sets of brothers -- Simon & Andrew and then James & John, the sons of Zebedee.
MAIN POINT - Jesus demonstrates his authority by summoning 5 men to be DISCIPLES and SOUL-WINNERS.
1. You are CALLED to follow Christ!
2. You are COMMISSIONED to fish for souls!
This message looks at many parallels between casting the net for fish & fishing for souls! What is the believer's duty and call? What is our ambition? How can you evangelize? What can you do to fish for souls? How can we make it our ambition to "win more souls" to Jesus Christ?
Pastor Geoff preaches Isaiah 6 and shows how the Prophet becomes a Singer (5:1-7). He sings a song for his "Beloved" -- God -- and about God's vineyard.
Isa 5 simply shows how Israel is guilty & judgment is coming. They have sinned, they are guilty, and they deserve God's wrath. Isaiah will SING it in a parable, and he will lament it in WOEs and then he'll vividly describe the inevitable judgment.
The sermon covered 2 main points:
1. The Prophet's SONG of Israel's Sinfulness (5:1-7)
2. The Scathing WOEs for Israel's Iniquities (5:8-30)
What are the steps to the downfall & destruction of a nation? What destroys a society? What is the massive worldview crisis we face today? Is there hope? What can be done?
This sermon examines the glorious & beautiful "Branch" -- the Messiah Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ and HIS Future, earthly kingdom.
We survey 6 features of the kingdom in this chapter. This chapter is ALL Hope, all future, all beauty, all wonder, and all delight.
1. a glorious SAVIOR
2. a glorious NATION
3. a glorious CITY
4. a glorious FORGIVENESS
5. a glorious PRESENCE
6. a glorious PROTECTION
What a great Kingdom we have ahead of us! Let us lift our eyes and pray: "Let your kingdom come!"
"Jesus' Temptation: Wielding the Sword of the Word!"
This sermon surveys the Temptation narrative in Mark 1. Matthew 4 and Luke 4 provide more details regarding the account.
This sermon focuses on Christ our CHAMPION by looking at the Temptation in 3 ways:
1. consider the LEADING OF THE SPIRIT (preparation in the desert)
2. consider the TEMPTATION OF SATAN (hostility from the Devil)
3. consider the MINISTRY OF ANGELS (worship from the angels)
This sermon covers Isaiah 3. In this very sobering chapter, Isaiah proclaims God's hatred of pride and shows many examples by way of illustration of how God will remove and take away anything and everything people trusted in.
1. God's judgment upon the WICKED LEADERS (wicked men) (1-15)
2. God's judgment upon the WICKED WOMEN (sensual ladies) (3:16-4:1)
Pastor Geoff shows how there is a great depth to a Premil understanding -- a literal, grammatical, historical interp of the BIble will inevitably lead to Premil. A faithful hermeneutic and consistent one will lead to Premil.
Far from being superficial or a surface level understanding, Premil is actually quite deep in its thoroughness and comprehensive cohesion of Scripture. It employs a faithful hermeneutic and results in a right and accurate interpretation of the Bible.
