Psalm 75

‘1 We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.

2 You say, “I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge with equity.

3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.[b]

4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.[c]

5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”

6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.

7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.

8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.

9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,

10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”’

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?

The Persecution of the Christian – Sermon – October 23 2011

What causes the hardness of heart with those People that refuse to hear the word of Scripture?  When a person continues to keep a hardened heart, does there come a point where God will turn that person away to their hardened ways?   Why is it that only those who believe in Christ are persecuted, and not people who just say they believe in God?  What is is about the name Jesus, that cause such hatred by some, and yet means love for others?  Why do those with a Liberal heart reject Jesus Christ, deep down , but not on the surface where others can see?
