Pastor Geoff asks and answers the question: Where are the Old Testament saints now? With biblical support and with biblical clarity, he shows that all OT saints are currently in the immediate presence of God in heaven. One day, their spirits will be reunited with the resurrected body at the 2nd coming at the start of the MIllennial Kingdom.
"Where Can You Anchor Your Hope When the World Seems to Break Up?"
Geoff preaches Psalm 99 and explains the biblical doctrine of the sovereignty of God. There is no doctrine more comforting to the believer than the unshakable sovereignty of God. What is it that will get you through life's storms, culture's chaos, political nightmares, and circumstantial confusion? Only a robust, solid conviction that God lives, rules, and reigns over all things at all times!
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel at the Senior Living Home in St Louis, Missouri and calls the men and women to understand the coming judgment of God that will fall upon all unbelievers and he calls them to embrace Christ as Savior and Lord through faith alone so as to escape divine judgment and stand confidently in Christ!
Pastor Geoff preaches from Romans 1 on Jesus' humanity and His deity. He shows from Romans 1 that Jesus is the Kingly Son of David as well as the Sovereign Son of God. He then calls people to repent, believe in Christ, and find life in Him which will result in the obedience which comes from faith. Listen and apply this Resurrection Day sermon.
"Who Gave Jesus His Authority - A Controversy With the Jewish Scholars"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse study through the Gospel of Luke (and, the Passion Week) and here we see Jesus confronted by the Jewish elite -- an official delegation of rabbinical scholars.
And Jesus totally baffles them and confounds them and traps those who came to trap Him!
This sermon traces what happens and shows that Jesus does, in fact, have all authority!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues to preach through the Gospel of Luke & here looks at the Passion Week of our Lord. This section is when Jesus asks the Jewish leaders whose son the Messiah is -- David's!
But Messiah is NOT ONLY the son of David; He's David's Lord & sovereign One over all! Implication? Bow before Him! Believe in Him! Surrender to Him! And live!
"Who or What Is the Rock of Protection in Your Life?"
Pastor Geoff continues the audio-blog on biblical church leadership. The question is often asked: "Who appoints elders in a local church?" Should it be a vote by everyone present? Should it be the church's designation? Should a man be designated into the office and appointed by other godly, gifted, qualified elders/leaders?
Pastor Geoff open-air preaches at the Central West End Metrolink station as the crowds walk by. He preaches 1 Samuel 2:25 and proclaims the sinfulness of man, the anger of God, the plight of man, & the glory of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Listen to this open-air sermon.
Pastor Geoff provides supports for a pre-tribulation rapture.
1. The Promise of Christ supports it
2. The Nature of the Trib supports it
3. The Pattern of divine history supports it
4. The Time of the marriage support of the Lamb supports it
5. The differences between the rapture & the 2nd coming supports it
6. The imminency of the coming supports it
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Titus 2.1 and answers the question: "Why are we SO committed to the expository preaching of the Word? Why do we preach so much? Why do we speak God's Truth so often in this local church?
This text gives us 3 reasons why...
1. Because of the URGENCY of biblical preaching
2. Because of the UNDERSTANDING of what biblical preaching is
3. Because of the USEFULNESS of biblical preaching (=sound doctrine)
Listen to this message and hear Paul's strong admonition to Titus to 'SPEAK' the things which are fitting for sound doctrine!
Pastor Geoff preaches Titus 2.1 at a local church in the St Louis area. May God remind true believers why every faithful local church must prioritize and uphold the regular, consistent, passionate, and expositional preaching of the Word of God.
