the Psalms" series and proclaims that David teaches
us and models how to trust God WHILE going through
great hardships in life (even with his own son
Absalom pursuing him!):
1. TELL God
2. TRUST God
3. TRIUMPH in God
Man's Great Sinfulness & God's Greater Covenantal-Love"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the historical psalm -- Psalm 106 -- and shows the fickleness, the failures, and the great sinfulness of Israel. Yet God Almighty proves to be so faithful and so true to His covenental love! Rejoice!
"The Written Word is God-Breathed & Wholly Sufficient for You!"
In this sermon, we see how God sent a prophet to rebuke Jehoshaphat for his wicked alliance with Ahab and then Jehoshaphat begins reforms in the land and appoints judges in the land to do justice and righteousness.
"2 Essentials for Every Pastor: Private Prayer & Relentless Preaching"

Because REGENERATION IS SUPERNATURAL
Because SINNERS NEED TRUTH
Because HOLINESS IS NECESSARY
Because DECEPTION IS RAMPANT
Because PLEASING GOD IS PRIORITY
"Elders Are Disqualified If They Affirm Homosexuality & 'Gay-Christians'"
In this podcast we study this statement: ELDERS ARE DISQUALIFIED IF THEY LEGITIMIZE ‘GAY-CHRISTIANS’ AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”
What does that mean?
What is good? GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
what is good? TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.
"The Downfall of Asa: 5 Ways to Shipwreck Your Faith!"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff Kirkland shows that pastors and academic professors who condone the LGBT+ movement are deceived.
We must stand courageously and speak biblically as we stand upon the sufficient, clear, and authoritative Word of God (=the Bible):
Men in the pulpits must teach TRUTH to God’s people.
Professors in the instructions must teach SCRIPTURE to Believers.
Christians in the pews must understand the NATURE of sin.
Christians in the pews must believe the POWER of regeneration.
Christians in the pews must warn with urgency of homosexuality (SSA)
Christians in the pews must speak with courage in these times.
Christians in the pews must expect the hatred of the world.
"Why Homosexuals & 'Gay-Christians' Are Deceived & Need a Savior"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff teaches on: why homosexuals and “Gay-Christians” are deceived and need a Savior:
1 Timothy 1 provides clarity and help:
They must repent and come to Christ for salvation...
B/c of Their Depravity
B/c of Their Sin
B/c of Their Rebellion
B/c of Their Patterns (of sin)
B/c of Their Unholiness
B/c of Their Choice
B/c of Their Impenitence
"The Utter Impossibility of Being a 'Gay-Christian'"
Pastor Geoff deals with the common phrase used by many in our day that they are "Gay-Christians" -- often they say they are celibate and don't 'act out.' But what does the Bible say? How can we have clarity about this phrase that many identify themselves as, namely, as being a 'Gay-Christian"?
In this, Pastor Geoff provides 7 Reasons Why This Is Utterly Impossible. It's absolutely impossible to be a 'Gay-Christian'. Here's why...
It Blasphemes the Character of God.
It Contradicts the Clarity of Scripture.
It Ignores the Severity of Hell.
It Disregards the Glory of Regeneration
It Belittles the Power of Grace
It Shames the Name of Christ
It Destroys the Witness to the Lost
