This sermon uncovers 3 problem attitudes that pervaded the people of Judah -- and Isaiah exposes them. The problem attitudes that prevailed were.
1. LIVE IT UP!
2. LOOK AT ME!
3. LEAN ON HIM!
Rather than partying, reveling, leaning on wicked rulers, or even trusting in good rulers, we must LOOK TO THE LORD alone!
"The Value & Importance of Older Women Serving in the Church!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches to the older women and pastorally and tenderly calls them to follow the word of God and the privilege of their high calling of older women in the local church:
1. the CONDUCT of older women
2. the CONVERSATION of older women
3. the CONTROL of older women
4. the COUNSEL of older women
This sermon pleads with older women (50s, 60s and up) to actively, intentionally and thoughtfully serve in the local church by speaking of & testifying of God's greatness especially to the younger women (more on that next week in vv.4-5).
In this chapter, Jesus Christ is presented as the supreme conqueror who triumphs over all evil. At the end of Revelation 12 (on the Dragon, Satan), and Revelation 13 (the AntiChrist & False Prophet), one may wonder if evil ultimately triumphs. But Revelation 14 provides the glorious answer that Jesus Christ will triumph in the end over all evil, over all His enemies!
In this chapter, the victory & supremacy of Jesus Christ is shown in three different scenes.
Geoff clarifies the mission of CFBC and then expresses the vision of the Church and how it is to be a disciple-making church. Then he provides some goals and some practical ways to achieve the vision of the Church.
Pastor Geoff preaches Song of Solomon 4 and this chapter surveys the wedding night. Solomon & His love are now married & they're now alone in the chamber about to consummate their marriage.
He lavishes her with words of praise & delights regarding her personhood & her body. He loves her! He delights in her! He expresses affection for her!
This message shows the importance of having a biblical theology of sexuality -- the way God defines it. We need the objective, true, authoritative truth from God on the matter of sex while we live in a culture of chaos, confusion & disorder.
Praise God that He has given sex as a gift to be enjoyed as each spouse selflessly worships Christ by serving the other person in the physical lovemaking within the bounds of marriage.
Pastor Geoff teaches part 3 on "A Godly Home" as this message focuses on the duties of the wife to her husband.
God calls every wife to be and do three things:
1. Happily Submissive
2. Suitable Helper
3. Selflessly Reverent
The Word of God speaks clearly regarding the roles of both the husband and the wife in the marriage so as to promote unity, oneness, joy, and a faithful representation of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pastor Geoff preaches in chapel at the Brookes Bible Institute in St Louis, Missouri. Here he exhorts the students & faculty as to the amazing wonder that God would call sinners into the ministry to serve Him & be used by Him for His glory.

"The Wonder of Salvation—Jesus, the Son of God, Your Savior!"
Pastor Geoff preaches part 1 of a 3-part series on "The wonders of our incarnate King!" This message from 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 -- especially focusing on verse 30! -- emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the believer's HOLINESS.
Pastor Geoff preaches Hebrews 2:14-18 and provides 4 soul-strengthening reasons why Jesus Christ is your helper.
The gospel of saving grace clearly comes forth in this paragraph as the Author of Hebrews reminds us that Jesus had to be made like His brethren in every way! And He does, in fact, give help to the descendant of Abraham!
Pastor Geoff preaches 1 Peter 1:3-9 and shows how all believers have a true & living hope. This hope, biblically, is not a wish, it's a confident expectation and certainty based upon God's promises & not life's circumstances.
This passage provides 5 divine declarations regarding the Christian's hope.
"The Word of God Is Eternal & Fixed in the Heavens!"
This message focuses on Psalm 119:89-96 which deals with God's Word being eternally established and fixed in heaven. That is to say, the Bible is not subject to man's opinion nor does it need updating. The Bible will never pass away nor can anyone ever destroy it.
This message presents two truths about the Written (and Living) Wordâ€”
1. The eternality of the Word declared
2. The eternality of the Word described
