In this message, Pastor Geoff works through Revelation 7 and shows how God will save people during the future time of "Great Tribulation" -- the time of Jacob's Trouble (the 70th week of Daniel):
1) 144,000 ethnic, Jewish people
2. A great multitude from every nation, tribe, tongue, and people (Gentiles)
In this section, we learn that God will pour out saving mercy on many even in the midst of future trouble on earth. And we see that God is not through with the nation of Israel yet. Has God rejected His people (Israel), has he? By no means!
"Listen to and Apply the Word of God! Practical Ways to Benefit from the Preached Word!"
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches Proverbs 8:32 and shows that we must (1) hear the Word & (2) apply the Word.
Then he provides six very practical steps to diligently hearing and applying the Word of God when it's preached. How do we profit from the Word? How must be listen to sermons? How do we really change because of them?
"Benefits of the Friday Morning Men's Bible Study!"
Pastor Geoff asks the question: "What is true saving faith?" We know that salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone. But what is it to 'believe in Jesus Christ for eternal life'? What does this look like?
In this 17-minute audio, Pastor Geoff works through the Scriptures to show that biblical saving faith is a repenting faith and one that turns from sin, submits to the Lordship of Christ, and surrenders to Him as he follows Christ and abides in His Word.
A faith that saves is a faith that repents, works, obeys, and demonstrates itself in active service and heart-felt and worshipful obedience to Christ as sovereign Lord & King.

"The Trumpet Judgments of the Future Tribulation Period!"
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Book of Revelation and here he teaches on the 2nd series of 'seven judgments' in the future Tribulation period -- the 'trumpet judgments.'
Revelation 8 contains the first four of the seven trumpet judgments (the final three are contained in Revelation 9).
Listen to this exposition through the text. See how important it is to interpret Revelation with a normal, plain, straightforward hermeneutic (=interpretation) so as to read God's Word plainly as he intended to convey it.
"The Monumental Moment of Selecting the 12 Apostles! God Uses Ordinary People for His Glory!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through the Gospel of Luke and speaks about how Christ prayed all night, how he chose the 12 Apostles, and how he possessed all power to heal disease and manifest His glory.
Be encouraged that God uses weak, ordinary people to serve Him so that He receives all the glory!
"Reflect on & Respond to the Unconquerable Power of God!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Ps 114 and shows how God manifested His power with Israel in the Old Testament -- from Sinai, to bringing them out of Egypt, to parting the Red Sea, to splitting the Jordan River.
And the way that God commands all the earth -- and all people -- to respond to Him is to 'tremble'!
Listen to this sermon & stand in awe of God's power!
"Is Homosexuality & Same-Sex Attraction Sinful? The Need for Gays to Repent and Come to Christ!"
Pastor Geoff Kirkland (of Christ Fellowship Bible Church) provides a brief-message on the issue of 'homosexuality' and he shows from the Bible, the perfect Word of God, that all homosexual activity (including Same-Sex attraction, SSA) is sinful and those who find themselves engulfed in this lifestyle must repent or they will perish in hell.
The grace of God remains available for all to hear the gospel, repent of sin (turn!) and to flee to Jesus Christ so that they can be forgiven of their sin and escape the coming wrath of God!
In this Resurrection Day message, Pastor Geoff works phrase by phrase through Hebrews 13:20 and shows how the author of Hebrews presents the Lord Jesus Christ:
1. Jesus is Living
2. Jesus is Loving
3. Jesus is Redeemer
4. Jesus is LORD
Listen to this message & be reminded of the foundational and essential truths of Christianity!
"Is It Possible to Evangelize Without Confronting the Sinner?"
Pastor Geoff describes the 'pulpit' of the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus did not preach this in a large cathedral or at a church conference. He preached this in the open air with masses of crowds that had gathered around Him.
In this teaching session, Pastor Geoff works through the middle set of Tribulation judgments (the 7 Trumpet Judgments) and specifically looks at the 5th and 6th Trumpet Judgments and the monstrous demonic invasions that will occur during this future period. The 5th trumpet will be an unleashing of demons to torment people for 5 months. The 6th demonic invasion will bring death to 1/3 of the world's population at that time.
Listen to this message to understand more of God's judgment that will come upon a world that has refused to repent and turn to Christ!
Repent! Turn from your sins! Flee from the wrath to come! Find shelter and safety in Christ Jesus alone!
