Pastor Geoff preaches at the CFBC Retreat with the theme on being "In Christ." This session covers the believer's relationship with God and it specifically examines the topic of God's adoption of the believer.
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the Family Bible Hour class on the "CFBC Distinctives". This message focuses on the majesty of God, the awful (=archaic English for dreadful, awe-inspiring, majestic, fearful) majesty of God.
Exodus 19-20 serve as the text of showing how holy, majestic, and powerful God is. We must elevate our thoughts, our mind, our heart, and our worship to God who rightly sits on heaven's throne.
This profound and significant text of Jesus' baptism signifies the divine credentials and the divine approval for Christ's ministry.
The baptism of Christ was one of the last acts in His private life before he launched the public ministry. In this text, Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan, the Spirit of God comes upon Christ and empowers Him for ministry, and the Father thunders out of heaven that Jesus is in fact the Beloved Son in whom God is well-pleased.
Old Testament allusions and texts abound in this brief text. Listen to this sermon & strive to emulate Christ as a man of prayer and a man fully dependent on the Spirit of God.
"The Beast of the Sea (AntiChrist) and the Beast of the Earth (False Prophet)"
Revelation 13 reveals two individuals -- "beasts" -- who will arise during the future time of tribulation. The first is a beast that comes up out of the sea and this speaks of the "Anti-Christ", the man of lawlessness (2 Thess 2). Then the other beast is the "false prophet" -- the one who makes all the world to worship the first beast (and the Dragon).
This message looks at these two characters and the role that they will play in the future time of divine wrath in the Tribulation period.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the narrative where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead. The focus of the sermon is to highlight the deity of Christ. That means that Jesus Christ is fully, and has always been fully, God.
Geoff shows how the deity of Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for our salvation & how it relates to you personally.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the humanity of Jesus Christ. Luke 4 provides a remarkable account where Christ meets Satan for combat. Christ overcomes because of His reliance on the Spirit, His commitment to the Word, and His desire to obey the Father.

This sermon covered the judgment of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Revelation1, the Apostle John sees the glorified Christ in all of His sovereign glory. And this remarkable vision of Christ reveals His power, His wrath, His destruction of his enemies, and His purity.
Make certain you are saved from the wrathful Christ because you have believed, surrendered, & are following Him!
