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?

Is God Still Angry With Me? – Sermon – 03-13-2013

Does God have anger with us at times? Who can stand before it? Is God Loving, Anger, both? Is God provoked to anger, righteous indignation, by our sins and wickedness and unbelief? What hope do we have He is not angry with us when we consider OUR sins?  When you return to God, in repentance of sins, looking to Jesus, there is no more anger, no more wrath, only smiles and joy. Do you get this?  The Pharisees couldn’t get this or accept this.
