Pastor Geoff teaches 1-6 grade chapel at WVCA on God's sovereignty in salvation. We are dead in sin until God sovereignly raises us up with Christ. This salvation is received by faith alone in Christ. This, then, results in a life of good works which God prepared beforehand for us to walk in them.
"Only Two Paths. Only Two Destinies. Only Two Options. Which Are You On?"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 1 & shows how there are only two paths of life: the path of the godly & the path of the ungodly. He describes them both from the Psalm & then asks: "Which path are you on?"
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches on David's urgent requests for God to "revive me!" (3x). This speaks of one of the greatest needs in the church today -- a sovereignly bestowed, powerful outpouring of the Spirit of God upon the people of God.
Revival is a supernatural work of God where He comes upon His people with power so that they are quickened, revived, and white-hot with love for Christ, Scripture, holiness, prayer, and the lost. This, then, affects the surrounding culture as God brings many to salvation through the proclamation of the gospel.
In this message, Pastor Geoff speaks of revival, defines it, and provides insight as to how David prayed for revival and what often attends true revival.
Pastor Geoff preaches to the CFBC congregation & reminds them of the stunning & dazzling beauty of Christ -- who is altogether lovely.
This message presents 10 ways that Jesus Christ, the great Bridegroom, is altogether lovely & wholly desirable.
Then the message provides some application points. So what? How does the beauty of Christ affect us?
Song of Solomon 5:16 is the Bride praising & adoring her husband, Solomon, a Son of David. How much more can we the Bride of Christ praise & adore the Ultimate Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, THE Son of David!
WHY BABYLON IS LITREAL & WILL BE REBUILT & IMPORTANT IN FUTURE PROPHECY:
Some say that Babylon is NOT literal. That OT prophecy never teaches that it’ll be rebuilt.
The Bible predicts the destruction of Babylon will be final & complete (Jer 50-51; Isa 13). It’ll be so annihilated that it’ll be like Sodom/Gomorrah (Jer 51.24-26)
Scripture predicts the destruction will be utterly sudden/quick (Jer 51.8//Rev 18)
The OT predicts this will come “in the Day of the LORD” (Isa 13.6-11; 13.1; 14.1-3; Jeremiah 50:1-6)
At the time of her destruction there will be cosmic/heavenly disturbances in sun and moon (Isa 13:10/Matt 24/Rev 6-16)
Universal peace will result from the overflow of Babylon (Isa 14.7-8; Revelation 19)
A literal interp of Zechariah 5.5-11 demands a restored & rebuilt Babylon —> a woman called “wickedness” is seen sitting in an Ephah measure covered with a round piece of lead. An Ephah to a JEW was a perfect symbol of commerce and was the largest dry measure of the Jews. The Ephah is then taken away to “build a house/Temple in the land of Shinar/babylon. This vision anticipates a final *concentration of wickedness and commercialism in the great center in the land of Shinar/Babylon which would span over the whole earth (exactly as Revelation 17-18 says)
The historical context/situation of Babylon have clearly shown that the prophecies have *NOT* been fulfilled and must await a final and complete fulfillment.
