Pastor Geoff preaches a podcast on what "effective preaching is." We go for change in our preaching. What does God use the preaching to do? What changes?
Shemaiah the prophet said: “Thus says the LORD…” (2 Chron 12.5)
Jeremiah the prophet “spoke for the LORD (2 Chron 36:12)
We make it our commitment to preach for change...
Preaching that changes souls
Preaching that changes lives
Preaching that changes marriages
Preaching that changes churches
Preaching that changes evangelism
Preaching that changes societies
"Egypt's Judgment & Future Transformation & Inclusion in the Kingdom!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows from Isa 19 why Judah should *NOT* trust in Egypt for deliverance (from the coming invasion of Assyria):
1. Because Egypt will soon be judged by your God! (1-15)
2. Because Egypt will soon be trusting in your God! (16-25)
This remarkable chapter provides clarity on God's plan for the nations -- even Egypt! -- so that they will, one day in the future eschaton, be brought into the "people of God" by saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and God will include them and welcome them in the kingdom worship (Rev 20; Isa 2.2-4; Isa 11)! What a great God & what wideness in His saving mercies!
In this podcast we study this statement: ELDERS ARE DISQUALIFIED IF THEY LEGITIMIZE ‘GAY-CHRISTIANS’ AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”
What does that mean?
What is good? GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
what is good? TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.
This sermon extols the design of God for mothers in the context of the home so that they would embrace His calling upon their lives to be workers at home, diligent in teaching the children, and respectful to their husbands.
Motherhood is not a hobby; it's a calling. It's the noblest of callings that God gives to women in the context of their home. God's plan for mothers is that they busy themselves in the home by diligently teaching their children the Word of God, the gospel of Christ, and the sacred writings which are able to give the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
How does Christ encourage the staggering faith of the disciples? After speaking of his death, the disciples are baffled and confused. So what does Jesus do and how does he comfort them?
1. the Savior PROMISES his glory
2. the Savior UNVEILS his glory
3. the Savior is AFFIRMED in his glory
4. the Savior SUFFERS before his glory
In this sermon, pastor Geoff provides 3 exhortations from John's commendation and exhortation to the "elect lady"

"End-Times: The Midpoint of the Trib: Abomination of Desolation"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how we can enjoy the beauty of marriage in a God-glorifying, gospel-centered, Christ-exalting way. This comes when love is at the foundation of the marriage covenant.
Pastor Geoff shows that marriage is a God-given covenant of companionship between one man and one woman for life.
Then he spells out three ways that this kind of love manifests itself so as to properly display the glory of the gospel in our marriages.
"Enjoy the Beauty of Marriage in a God-Glorifying Way!" Part 2
Pastor Geoff preaches at the very affluent Clayton, MO during a lunch-hour break in the downtown area. He preaches Titus 3:3 on how sinners who are not converted are "enslaved to various lusts." Yet there is hope in Jesus Christ. There is one way of salvation -- through repenting of sin and trusting solely and fully in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
In this message, Pastor Geoff teaches on eschatology (doctrine of end-times) and provides a biblical case for the pretribulation rapture.
That is to say, Jesus Christ will return to catch up His people (all who are alive) to meet Him in the clouds to be with Him forever. And this immediate, quick, sudden coming will occur before the seven-year Tribulation period that will come upon the whole earth.
