This message surveys the prayer of Daniel when he was in exile. Daniel 9 is one of the most important chapters in all the Bible -- especially because of the prophecy of the "70 weeks" at the end (vv.24-27).
This sermon covers 3 simple lessons for us:
1. Study the Scriptures! (as Daniel studied Jeremiah!)
2. Respond in Prayer
3. Anticipate God's Answer
In preparation for communion, pastor Geoff preaches on Romans 4:5 and preaches on the gospel of Jesus Christ. He notes how all of us are ungodly sinners who have rebelled against God, how God is the One who justifies, and how the sinner who has saving faith in Christ receives full forgiveness and is clothed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Hear and apply this message from God's Word.
Geoff open-air preaches at the Central West End Metrolink station in St. Louis, MO. He preaches during the afternoon rush-hour period as the people run to their trains from work. Listen as he exposits Judges 2 & proclaims the glory of the gospel & salvation found only in Christ.
"A Prophecy of the Person, Work & Salvation of Jesus Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ from the Old Testament prophet of Micah. In Micah 5:2ff, Pastor Geoff preaches on the streets the glorious gospel of this prophecy given more than 600 years BEFORE Jesus came into the world:
The Prophecy of the Messiah
The Birth of the Messiah
The Authority of the Messiah
The Kingship of the Messiah
The Eternity of the Messiah
The Shepherd in the Messiah
The Peace from the Messiah
All this is derived from Micah 5:2ff. Come & believe in this God-Man, Jesus Christ, the Lord!
"A Prophet and a Prostitute--A Picturesque and an Historical Reality"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel at a Senior Living facility in St Louis, MO as he preaches Psalm 92 to the elderly and shows how even in old age men and woman can be like fruitful, prosperous, vibrant, strong trees.
Pastor Geoff preaches at the Senior Living Home in Ellisville, MO and preaches on the Tax Collector and the Pharisee and the parable Jesus tells of these two men going up to the Temple to pray.
One is the self-righteous man -- the Pharisee -- who praises himself all throughout his prayer. He dies in his futile self-exaltation and is humbled as he eternally goes to hell.
The other is the desperately humble man -- the tax-collector -- and he humbles himself and begs for God's mercy -- His propitiation -- so that he can be saved. He humbles himself and is exalted at death to enter heaven: all by God's grace!
"A Sermon for Children: Study God & Rejoice in His Character!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Philippians 4 and shows the children that they must study to know God and remember His great attributes, and then remember that this is THE very reason that they can always rejoice -- through any season and situation of life -- because God Himself never changes.
He is worthy of praise at all times.
"A Sermon for Children: True Happiness in Walking Closely With God!"
This sermon surveys all of Isaiah 6 -- God is HOLY HOLY HOLY.
1. SIGHT - Isaiah saw the LORD (1-4)
2. INSIGHT - Isaiah saw himself (5-7)
3. MISSION - Isaiah saw the need (8-12)
4. FAITH - Isaiah saw the hope (13b)
"A Simple Explanation/Defense of Street Preaching"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the psalms at the CFBC prayer meetings on Wednesday nights. This psalm models for us how to pray in serious pain. Remarkably, David shows that having a God-centered perspective (='let God be magnified') provides the proper perspective in times of hardship.
True it is that prayer is the medicine for the soul.
Pastor Geoff exhorts the men to have an exclusive, sole, singular love for their wives. Every husband must have no competitors who steal his love away from his wife. He must have an exclusive and singular love for his bride alone!
In this message, Pastor Geoff preaches verse by verse through this summary paragraph in Mark's gospel. It is a transitional paragraph concluding Mark 2.1 - 3:6 focusing on "CONFLICT." And it also is preparing for the main pivot/turning point in the book (Mark 3.10-20 -- the public, official rejection: The blasphemy of the Spirit).
In this account, we see 4 things about your Savior:
1. Your Savior's MINISTRY
2. Your Savior's MERCY
3. Your Savior's AUTHORITY
4. Your Savior's IMPORTUNITY
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel from 1 Kings 10 on the wisdom of Solomon & how Christ is greater than Solomon. He preaches on the streets of St Louis, MO during an afternoon rush-hour period.
Pastor Geoff teaches on the type of depression often called "a-typical depression" -- and he defines what it is and provides biblical help and counsel for Christians who really find themselves struggling greatly through these times in life.
