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?
"The Prophet Who Feeds A Multitude With One Man's Lunch!"
Pastor Geoff open air preaches when Jesus feeds 5,000 men with 1 man's lunch. Pastor Geoff shows that man has a need (just the masses had no bread), and Jesus came to fulfill what man could never do: by offering Himself as the bread of life to those who would believe & come to Him!
"The Prophecy of Messiah's Crucifixion and Kingdom"
In this message, Pastor Geoff continues the study through prayer from Luke 11:
1. The PRIORITY of prayer (v.1)
2. The PATTERN of prayer (vv.2-4)
3. The PERSISTENCE of prayer (vv.5-8)
4. The PROMISES of prayer (vv.9-13)
This message deals with the great and large promises that God gives to us as His beloved children. We are invited to Ask! and Seek! and Knock! Let us pray with confidence and hold God to His Word!
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ and His redemption found from the earliest part of God's perfect revelation -- from the book of Genesis. In Genesis 3:15, God provides the clear promise that a man will come and crush Satan's head!
The study tonight provides seven characteristics for a God-honoring husband. For the young men, strive to be this kind of man. For the young women, strive to look for, date, and marry this kind of man.
This is part 1 of looking at the "Disciples' Prayer". This message provides the background of prayer, the importance of prayer, a biblical survey of prayer, and the template/model of this prayer that Jesus gives in teaching us how to pray.
This message covers Luke 11:1-2.
"The Priority of Prayer, Part 2: Learning from the Pettern of Prayer from Our Savior"
Pastor Geoff concludes the 2-part series teaching on the 'Disciples' Prayer' from Luke 11:1-4 and shows what each phrase means and how we can learn from our Savior's pattern of prayer for us.
Let us enjoy God on earth as we commune with Him in prayer.
