Pastor Geoff provides a podcast on Joel 2:11-13 - GOD’s GOSPEL CALL!
the INTENSITY — strong is he who carries out his word
the INCOMPREHENSIBILITY - great day of the lord is great & very awesome; who can endure it?
the URGENCY — yet even now… declares the LORD
the HUMILITY — (necessity) —> return to me with all your heart; with weeping; return to the LORD
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches verse by verse through the section where the Pharisees approach Jesus to "test Him." We see the dialogue in 2 ways:
1. The SINISTER question
2. The DIVINE institution (of marriage)
1. is God's plan from the beginning
2. Is heterosexual
3. is leaving father and mother
4. is total oneness/companionship (=one flesh)
5. is joined together by GOD
6. is intended to be permanent
Geoff preaches Amos 7 where God gives Amos three visions of the coming destruction. After Amos intercedes and pleads for God's mercy on behalf of Israel, God temporarily restrains his hand but ultimately, judgment must come. Then the second half of the chapter is the historical account where the false priest Amaziah tells Amos not to preach but Amos is under divine mandate from God. We must preach the Word of God whether people want it or not. We must be faithful proclaimers of God's Word.
"God's Lawsuit Against Israel: Depraved, Doomed, Yet Forgiveness Is Offered!"
Pastor Geoff open air preaches the gospel on Revelation 2 and on how the church will -- and must -- suffer. So Christ's message to God's people is: be faithful until death & you won't be hurt by the second death -- the Lake of Fire.
"God's Overwhelming Forgiveness Resulting in Your Humble Love for the Savior!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches the glory of God's Word from Psalm 51 as David repents before the Lord after he committed adultery with Bathsheba. This psalm provides GOD'S TEMPLATE FOR US FOR REPENTANCE...
1. See your sin
2. Hate your sin
3. Confess your sin
4. Slay your sin
5. Forsake your sin
6. Replace your sin
This sermon exposits Proverbs 8:1-11 on Wisdom "Personified" as a street-preacher. God's wisdom calls out to all passers-by -- including the naive and the fools -- to get, listen, take in, and hold on to God's Truth!
This section shows us that God's wisdom is...
It is flawless
It is priceless
Listen to this exposition & cherish the wisdom of God above all else!
Pastor Geoff preaches this unit of Psalm 119 -- the unit of 8 verses, vv.33-40 -- and shows how God's Word gives the sufficient guidance so we can know His will.
-what is God's will for my life?
-who should I marry?
-what job should I take?
-where should I live?
Many of the questions of life demand good answers. The Word provides the biblical framework -- the parameters, the boundaries -- so that we pray fervently, trust the Scripture & rely on the Spirit of God to live within those boundaries.
When we're doing that, we're free to choose the desires of our hearts.
This sermon examines the great prayer of Moses: "Show Me Your Glory"
We learn about Moses' great pursuit of God. What is the glory of God? What does it mean to ask -- show me your glory, O God? How much of God do we want? How hungry are we for God?
1. BEHOLD the glory of God
2. ENJOY the glory of God
3. ANTICIPATE the glory of God
4. PURSUE the glory of God
