In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches part 2 of the study on God the Holy Spirit. In Ephesians 1:13-14 Paul extols the beauty of the Divine Spirit and we see this in the following headings:

3. the GUARANTEE of the Spirit
4. the PRAISE of the Spirit
This sermon seeks to show how the Spirit dwells in and guarantees our future inheritance if we are 'IN CHRIST.' Worship this great God and adore His great name for His awesome salvation!
"Glory to God in the Highest: A Savior Has Been Born for You!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the next stanza of 8-verses in Psalm 119 [the 'teth' stanza] which centers on the theme of the "Goodness of God." God is good & all that God does is good. God even brings afflictions for our good and by His good grace.
This message provides 6 ways that the goodness of God is manifested in these 8 verses.

"Give Thanks to the Lord! Blessed Is He Who Comes in the Name of the LORD!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 118 and shows how believers must "give thanks" to the LORD for He is good & for His everlasting, covenant-keeping love.
Psalm 118, also, is Messianic in that it points to the coming Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 118 is the song given to the nation of Israel to teach them how to respond when Messiah appears -- and that is exactly what happened when Jesus presented Himself as the Jewish Messiah during the "Triumphal Entry". Psalm 118 plays a very significant role during the final days of Jesus' life (the Passion week).
This sermon walks through the Passion Week and shows how Psalm 118 points to Jesus Christ as the "stone that was rejected" yet has become the "Corner Stone."
Psalm 101 emphasizes 'walking in the way of integrity'. To walk in integrity is to be a whole, complete, well-rounded, balanced man walking in the ways of the Lord & in the fear of the Lord.
In this psalm, 9 ingredients are given so as to walk in the way of integrity.
Make certain that your eyes are upon Christ, the perfect man of integrity, and resolve in your heart to walk in the blameless way!

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 45 on a royal king's wedding and shows the Messianic tones throughout.
Hebrews 1 attributes Psalm 45 to Jesus. So we learn that Jesus, our Bridegroom, will receive us, His Church, to Himself when the wedding will be eternally consummated at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb (Rev 19).
Pastor Geoff preaches on the true gospel from the Philippians 2.5-11 paragraph:
