Pastor Geoff preaches part 18 on the study through Psalm 119 and teaches on how God is righteous & how the Word is perfectly righteous.
This 8-verse stanza (vv.137-144) unveils 9 attributes of the Word that comprises the heart of this sermon.
Understand how great God's Word is, how perfect it is, how reliable and trustworthy it is, and thank God for His unswerving righteousness revealed in Scripture & imputed to those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation!
"The Righteousness of God Meted Out on Earthdwellers!"
Pastor Geoff continues preaching expositionally & verse by verse through this discourse in Luke 12:1 which continues through Luke 13:9. He teaches before myriads of people who swarm him as he travels in the open air.
In this message, Jesus warns His listeners to be on guard against every form of greed (or, covetousness).
This message defines greediness, cautions against greediness, illustrates greediness, explains how to mortify (kill) greediness, and shows why God indicts greediness.
Listen to this message & draw near to Christ with fervent love for Him in your soul!
"The Revelation of Jesus Christ: Listen, Learn, Heed!"
Pastor Geoff gives a brief devotional on the importance of understanding the substitution of Jesus Christ and the corresponding necessity that all God's people will be zealous for good works.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the reality and certainty of heaven and how this must energize the believer to 'press into the Kingdom' (that is, to take the kingdom by force). Sanctification must be an aggressive pursuit.
Heaven is about Christ and so the believer's life must be a constant pursuit of Christ and His glory.
"The Rapture: A Consideration of It & Comforts From It"
Pastor Geoff teaches on the doctrine found in 1 Thess 4 on the "Catching up" of believers -- what is sometimes called the Rapture.
To be CONSIDERED:
1 Thess 4
To be COMFORTING:
eagerly-expecting (meet with loved ones)
perfectly-transforming (seeing Christ face to face)
"The Radical Corruption of Mankind that Only God Can Remedy!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Book of Psalms and here he examines the doctrine of radical corruption — total depravity.
He defines what radical corruption is and shows how it pervades every human being — in the heart, in the mind, in the volition/will, in the understanding, in the religion. All are corrupt and defiled before God.
See yourself in this light and the gospel of Jesus Christ is all the sweeter. Listen & apply this sermon.
"The Radical Corruption of Man that Only God Can Remedy"
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff provides a study on Ephesians 4:11-16 - the PURPOSE and PLAN and PHILOSOPHY of the Church
Church is to be marked by...
1. Godly Leaders Who Equip (11)
2. Active Service of the Saints (12)
3. Christlike Maturing among All (13)
4. Constant Vigilance Against Error (14)
5. Loving Upbuilding in Unity (15-16)
This is an expository sermon. Pastor Geoff preaches through Mark 11.1-14 and shows how Jesus presents Himself publicly, dramatically and deliberately to Israel as her Messiah.
We see the Messiah's arrival in 3 ways:
1. the MANNER
2. the MEANING
3. the MIRACLE with it
Geoff preaches Psalm 112 and shows how Ps 111 and Ps 112 are interconnected and how the Godly man who sees God for who He really is (Ps 111) will live a life emulating the character of God (Ps 112). Listen & apply these principles of a man who is blessed, who fears the LORD, and who delights in God's commands.
"The Propitiation of Jesus Christ: The Only Way for God to Forgive Sinners"
Pastor Geoff preaches this Advent sermon at Christ Fellowship & focuses on the crosswork of Jesus Christ â€” the propitiation of Christ. The heart of the gospel is here. This is the crux, the nucleus, the vital organs, the sun of theology & the gospel.
Why did Jesus have to die? What did God accomplish? This message works through this paragraph in Romans 3:21ff and shows the biblical gospel and what the cross really accomplished.
God vindicated His own righteous and just character by crushing and punishing sin upon His own Son, the Lord Jesus, at Calvary. Those who believe in Jesus Christ are declared -- reckoned -- by God to be righteous by virtue of the merit of Another, Jesus Christ.
Believers are saved BY God, FROM God, and FOR God. This sermon explains what that means.
Pastor Geoff preaches Isaiah 6 and shows how the Prophet becomes a Singer (5:1-7). He sings a song for his "Beloved" -- God -- and about God's vineyard.
Isa 5 simply shows how Israel is guilty & judgment is coming. They have sinned, they are guilty, and they deserve God's wrath. Isaiah will SING it in a parable, and he will lament it in WOEs and then he'll vividly describe the inevitable judgment.
The sermon covered 2 main points:
1. The Prophet's SONG of Israel's Sinfulness (5:1-7)
2. The Scathing WOEs for Israel's Iniquities (5:8-30)
What are the steps to the downfall & destruction of a nation? What destroys a society? What is the massive worldview crisis we face today? Is there hope? What can be done?
