This sermon covers the rest of the opening greeting from John to the chosen "lady" and her children (vv.1-3). This sermon provides 2 more lessons on being a church full of love & committed to the Truth!
Pastor Geoff gives a podcast on the doctrine of the "New birth" -- or "regeneration." This is the work of God in saving a dead sinner. It is the life of God in the soul of a man.
â€œLydia was listening, whose heart the Lord opened to respond to the things spoken by Paulâ€
The REALM - the heart
The REGENERATOR - the LORD
The RENOVATION - opened
The RESULT - to respond to the things spoken
4 reasons why regeneration precedes faith:
The Clarity of Scripture
The Inability of Man
The Thoroughness of Regeneration
The Glory of God
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff pleads with men to love their wives with passionate EXCLUSIVITY -- as we learn from Solomon and his exclusive love and verbal affection that he lavishes upon his wife in Song of Solomon 7.
Here is what that looks like...
Specifically Affirm Her Features (1-5)
Verbally Affirm Her Beauty (6)
Happily Enjoy Her Sexually (7-9)
Exclusively Love Her Resolutely (10)
Willingly Be with Her Intimately (11-13)
Pastor Geoff teaches on the doctrine found in 1 Thess 4 on the "Catching up" of believers -- what is sometimes called the Rapture.
To be CONSIDERED:
1 Thess 4
To be COMFORTING:
eagerly-expecting (meet with loved ones)
perfectly-transforming (seeing Christ face to face)
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff provides ways from the text (of Psalm 128) as to HOW to have a happy home that fears the Lord. This psalm deals with the man, the wife, the children, the society, and the godly legacy.
"Constructing the Temple Building & Its Furnishings! God Is a God of Detail!"
Pastor Geoff teaches this class on the Intertestamental period -- and here he discusses the Roman empire, the Herodian dynasty, 1st century life in Palestine, the LXX (Septuagint), Targums, the languages of the 1st century, and then the Jewish sects at this time.
"NT Survey: Intertestamental Period (Babylon, Media/Persia, Greece)"
Pastor Geoff preaches Revelation 17 and explains the Harlot-Babylon in the Tribulation period. The only hope of escape of this time of great trouble and tribulation is to be cleansed and pure robed in Christ's righteousness!
Listen to this gospel message.
"Forming a Theology of Suffering: Going from Me-Centered Pain to God-Centered Hope!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches through the text phrase by phrase and shows exactly what God demands of all church-leaders who serve as pastor-elders. What is a church-leader to do?
(By application: what should family shepherds do as they lead in the context of their homes?)
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff brings out the text in 3 headings:
1. the SUPREME MANDATE for every shepherd
2. the SPECIFIC MINISTRY of every shepherd
3. the STEADFAST MOTIVATION of every shepherd
may the Lord raise up an army of faithful shepherds who serve His Church and care for God's flock which He purchased with His own blood.
Brethren -- pray for your elders!
