In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the importance of this genealogy in Luke (and the similar one in Matthew 1). He pulls out four theological truths from the text so that we can see the paramount importance of this text in Luke's gospel and for Luke's purpose to show that Jesus is, in fact, the Savior offered to both Jews and Gentiles!
1. God has given a perfectly inspired & inerrant book to you!
2. Jesus can relate to you in every single way!
3. God sovereignly works all things according to His plan!
4. Jesus came to bring redemption to mankind!
Pastor Geoff provides another element that is in the high calling of motherhood. This calling from God calls moms to teach/instruct their children (even the nursing babies/the youngest of children) in the sacred writings that give the wisdom that lead to salvation.
Moms should deliberately teach their children even from the youngest of years the Word of God!
"The High Calling of Motherhood - Teaching Children Biblical Truth"
Pastor Geoff shows from the text in Proverbs 31:1 where King Lemuel writes that which his mother taught him. This shows the high calling of motherhood includes the intentional teaching and instructing of the children in the ways of God.
"The High Calling of Motherhood - Modeling a Sincere Faith"
Pastor Geoff provides a devotional on Psalm 117 and shows how the thrust of the psalm drives all hearers, readers & followers of Christ to engage in global missions because God deserves global praise -- from all peoples, nations, tribes, and tongues!
Let us all all to praise our God!
"The Heart of the Saving Gospel: How to Be Righteous Before God!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the very heart of the gospel from Philippians 3:9 -- how can a man be JUST (=righteous) before God?
5 affirmations of this only saving message.
1. You are Found IN CHRIST Â (and may be found in Him...)
2. You RENOUNCE all Self-Righteousness Â (not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law)
3. You gain CHRIST's Righteousness Â (but that which is through faith IN CHRIST)
4. You Passively Receive it From God Â (the righteousness which comes FROM GOD...)
5. You Receive It By Faith Alone Â (on the basis of faith...)
"The Heart Of Man: The Biggest Problem Is What Comes Out From Within You"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits Mark 7:14-23 on the occasion when Jesus speaks with the Pharisees and scribes about the traditions of the elders. It's not that on the OUTSIDE which defiles, but that which comes out of the HEART OF MAN!
1. the PRECIOUSNESS of your heart
2. the PRIORITY of your heart
3. the PILOT of your heart
4. the POWER of your heart
5. the PURIFICATION of your heart
Pastor Geoff preaches Revelation 17 and explains the Harlot-Babylon in the Tribulation period. The only hope of escape of this time of great trouble and tribulation is to be cleansed and pure robed in Christ's righteousness!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff provides ways from the text (of Psalm 128) as to HOW to have a happy home that fears the Lord. This psalm deals with the man, the wife, the children, the society, and the godly legacy.
"The Guiltless One Tried & Condemned as Though Guilty!"
Geoff preaches John 1:14 at the CFBC's Christmas service. In this text, John reveals the amazing and mysterious truth that God clothed Himself with human flesh & revealed the glory of God. Hear Geoff talk about what this means & how it applies to your life.
"The Greatest Mass-Revival the Earth Has Ever Seen!"
In this marvelous text, Pastor Geoff preaches expositionally through the chapter showing what true repentance looks like. Those who repent and believe in Christ are spared from God's coming judgment. This is the only hope that we have!
Pastor Geoff continues the verse-by-verse exposition through the Book of Revelation & teaches on the most sobering & majestic event in all of human history -- the great, white throne judgment.
Every nonbeliever who has ever lived will be judged according to the things written in the books -- according to every thing that they have done. God will call them to account for every thought, every deed, every word, every motivation.
All whose names are not found in the Book of Life are cast by God Himself into the Lake of Fire.
Listen to this sobering message & be compelled to proclaim Jesus Christ to the lost & warn them of the coming judgment! Call them to flee to Christ today!
Revelation 17 is the chapter that Pastor Geoff works through in this message. This deals with the "harlot", the woman, that John saw in his vision. This is undoubtedly the city of Babylon.
Revelation 17-18 is the fulfillment of what is left unfulfilled in Jeremiah 50-51 when God pronounced everlasting doom & desolation upon Babylon of old. Since it has never been fulfilled (even up to the present), Revelation 17-18 is the final fulfillment & destruction of Babylon.
This city will be the center of false religion, persecution of Christians, and Babylon will ride upon the "Beast" (the Antichrist) during the future Tribulation.
