Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone – Sermon – December 05 2010

Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone ? – Sermon – December 05 2010

After reading Matthew 3: 1-10, do you think after learning about the purpose John the Baptist served announcing Christ’s coming, do you think we still need fire and brimstone preaching like this in church?  Do we still need to hear about the wrath of God, His righteous anger, His vengeance, His destructive power? Or is this a thing of the past?  Do we simply need messages only about love, joy, peace, hope and such things?   Do we need to keep God’s wrath and vengeance clearly on the radar scope of our faith?  Why do you think preachers, rarely preach like John anymore?  Is God any different in the New Testament, from how he was in the Old Testament, aside from Jesus Christ?  Why do the Seeker Sensitive churchs of today avoid preaching about God’s wrath?

Who Is The AntiChrist – Sermon – June 05 2011

Who Is The AntiChrist ? – Sermon – June 05 2011

Does Scripture give us distinct clues as to where the AntiChrist will come from?  Will he be a Political Leader?   Will he be a World powerful Businessman?   Will he claim to be a Christian?  What does Paul say about the Man of Lawlessness, the Anti-Christ in his letters?

Where in Scripture does it say that the Anti-Christ, will come from within the Church/Temple of God?  That he will claim to be a Christian, where does it say this in Scripture?  Who in all of the Church has exalted himself above all others, and who has proclaimed, that the only way to Salvation, is through him?

In what part of Scripture does Paul share the two things that the Anti-Christ will be required to do, or not do?   Who in the Church commanded celibacy and commanded that fasting must be done?  How many church bodies have agreed upon whom the Anti-Christ would be?

Listen for these questions and answers about “Who Is The AntiChrist ? “, below in the 1-part MP3 Audio Sermon below.

I Am Not Ashamed – Jesus, The Only Way – Sermon – October 02 2011

I Am Not Ashamed – Jesus, The Only Way – Sermon – October 02 2011

Why are there so many scripture quotes, that speak about not being ashamed of the Gospel?  (like Romans 1: 16, or 2 Timothy 1: 8)   Why is there so much pressure on us from the world, to be ashamed of the Gospel, and believing it?   Why should we speak the Gospel boldly?  Why do we Christians feel the temptation to be ashamed?   Where does this shame come from?  Why should we say Jesus is the only way to Salvation and Everlasting Life?  Why have so many Celebrities denied Christ as the only Path to Salvation such as  Oprah Winfrey when she was live on her show, and Billy Graham on the Robert Schuller show on May 31, 1997?   Why have these celebrities been ashamed to admit Christ is the only path, and that Wrath and Damnation will come to those who do not accept Jesus Christ?
