The psalmist prays in Psalm 94 when he and his people are sorely mistreated by the wicked. He finds relief by asking God to act, remembering God's (soon-coming) relief and deliverance, and by adoring God's attributes. Listen to the exposition of Psalm 94 here.
"What to Expect from Your Shepherds and How You Must Treat Them"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff pleads for a biblical understanding of the doctrine of regeneration -- the new birth, a sovereign, powerful work of God -- from Ezekiel 11:19-20. A SSA (same sex attracted) person who professes to be a Christian needs to be instructed on the reality of regeneration -- it's not only a change of heart, it's a full change of one's nature. Regeneration is a complete, total work of God. It not only saves a soul from hell, but it changes the desires, the affections, the ambitions, the longings here and now. For someone to say I'm SSA and it's just my cross to bear or my lot in life is hopeless and it leads one to despair. But the glory of the new birth, biblically and exegetically, is that God changes the soul and He changes the nature. It's like a new Genesis-one-like 'new creation.' Radical transformation. So we must reject the notion that Christians can be SSA. We need to uphold, maintain and glory in the sovereign, powerful, soul-transforming and heart-transforming work of regeneration, the new birth.
In this super study, Pastor Geoff discusses the biblical data concerning the end of the world & what events will transpire. He frames the discussion around a number of questions and then strives to answer them biblically. Listen to & apply this practical talk.
"What Will It Profit You to Gain the Whole World?"

But until that day, we must strive to grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This message is part 4 of the series on "Heaven" at the close of the Book of Revelation. This study examines the question: what will we DO in heaven? We will worship God in heaven, serve Him in heaven, be served by Him in heaven, fellowship with the saints, live with Christ, be perfectly sinless in all that we do.
Listen to the concluding message on the Book of Revelation study here.
Many unfortunately think that heaven will be boringâ€”or, a never-ending church service. Doubtless there will be worship in heaven but pastor Geoff reveals so much more of what we will do in heaven for all eternity!
Geoff preaches on Matthew 18:15-20 dealing with the topic of church restoration. How should Christians respond when they see a brother sinning? Jesus clearly lays forth four steps we can take to confront a sinning brother with the hopes of seeing that brother restored to Christ and restored to the Church. Listen and apply this message.
