In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Ephesians & comes eyeball to eyeball with the glorious doctrine of ELECTION -- God, from all eternity past, freely chooses all those who will be IN CHRIST forevermore.
This sermon provides 6 benefits of election -- some glorious realities and biblical definitions of WHAT election is.
"Why 1,000 Years Must Refer to a Literal 1,000 Year Kingdom on Earth"
Pastor Geoff teaches the CFBC men on the "future salvation & restoration of the Jewish people" -- from Romans 11:25-26, Zechariah 8, 12-13 and 14. He also looks at Ezekiel and Jeremiah also.
"Learn from Titus: O God: Give Us Manly & Holy Men of Integrity!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on th attribute of God that He is infinitely joyful in Himself -- within this Triune God He is perfectly satisfied and everlastingly happy. He calls us to find our joy -- our ultimate joy and happiness -- in Him!
"Biblical Counseling Class #3: How People Change [Put Off/Put On]"
Evangelism IS effective & it is WORTHWHILE and it is worth your time, sacrifice, comfort, energy and resources….
Ezekiel: Then you will know that I am the LORD (judgment Ezek 35 and hope Ezek 36)
**EVANGELISM DOES GLORIFY GOD…
as it FAITHFULLY DECLARES THE BIBLICAL GOSPEL.
as it WATERS THE SEED OF THE GOSPEL IN HEARTS OF GOD’S ELECT
as it BRINGS GOD’S ELECT TO SALVATION AS GOD REGENERATES & THEY REPENT & BELIEVE
as it HARDENS THE REPROBATE AND INCREASES THEIR SIN & CONDEMNATION
as it PROCLAIMS THE ‘NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES’ PUBLICLY
as it OBEYS THE CLEAR COMMAND TO ‘GO AND PROCLAIM REPENTANCE’ (Luke 24)
"Biblical Counseling 2 (Women): The Biblical View of Women"
In this message, Pastor Geoff teaches class #2 in the biblical counseling course for men. Here we lay the foundation of BIBLICAL ANTHROPOLOGY -- a proper understanding of the person, of man, of the "Heart."
What's the problem? What went wrong? How do we understand the 'heart'? How do we seek to change?
Pastor Geoff preaches Eph 5:25 and calls all married men to the reality that their wife is the FIRST and FOREMOST ministry that they have in this earthly life. May the Lord help us to love our wives even as Jesus loved the Church.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches part 4 of the "O Come Let Us Adore Him" Christmas Series. Here, he deals with the text of Herod killing the children in Bethlehem and the surrounding areas. This shows the enemies' hatred of Jesus.
Then we see Joseph leading his family back to Israel, to Galilee, to Nazareth! And we see the humiliation and lowliness of the God-Man who came to earth! What humility and lowliness! What a despised and rejected One this Man of Sorrows is!
"The Temptation of Jesus: See His Dependence on the Word of God!"
Pastor Geoff asks and answers the question: Where are the Old Testament saints now? With biblical support and with biblical clarity, he shows that all OT saints are currently in the immediate presence of God in heaven. One day, their spirits will be reunited with the resurrected body at the 2nd coming at the start of the MIllennial Kingdom.
