"Finding the Will of God? Biblical Clarity Needed!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on "Finding the Will of God for your Life." This is a common question that pastors often receive: "What's God's will?" Which decision should I make? Whom should I marry?
Should we know God's will for the future? How do we find it? Should we?
Deuteronomy 29:29 provides great clarity for it teaches us about TWO wills of God -- the (1) decretive (sovereign) will; and the (2) preceptive (revealed) will laid forth in Scripture.
We are not to know the decretive/sovereign will because it's "hidden" and "Secret". But we are to know and follow and obey the revealed will of God in the Scriptures.
Then pastor Geoff provides 6 questions to help guide you through the decision making process of life.

"The Catastrophe of Corrupt Counselors: The Evil Reign of Ahaziah!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 104 and draws out the parallels to the six-days of creation in Genesis 1. This sermon clearly teaches the essential truths of biblical creationism and the need for believers to hold tightly to God's sovereign, clear, effortless, and majestic creation of all things by His spoken Word!
This is vital because its a picture of what God does in the re-creation/new-creation of spiritual life in the soul of a man (2 Corinthians 4:6).
