Sermon 73 – Who’s going to TELL who

Trying to keep two fathers happy is impossible. If you’re under the subtle bondage of having to please your earthly father, then you can try as much as you like to impress and please the heavenly Father but it will not work.

Recently I was counselling a young Christian woman who was struggling to develop a healthy relationship with a young Christian man. On further examination it became clear that sub-consciously she was competing against

Sermon 4 – THE UNSAVED CHRISTIAN

Q. Is there such a thing as a Christian who isn’t saved?

The church teaches ‘once saved always saved’, but is that true? It’s true if you’re saved; but what if you’re not really saved?

The parable of the 5 foolish virgins in Matthew 25 strongly suggests that it’s possible to lose the Holy Spirit, and confirms that you can’t get the Spirit from someone else. You alone are responsible for the Spirit to stay in you.

Sermon 2 – “Don’t call me stupid”

SERMON 2. Don’t call me STUPID!
How do you react when someone calls you ‘stupid’? Most people bite back. In Matthew 5:22, Jesus challenges people who call others ‘stupid’ to think before they accuse, because the act equates to killing the person’s character and earns hell punishment. Therefore, the person who brands others as ‘stupid’ is actually passing judgment on themselves because it’s the height of hardness to have experienced the pain of being called ‘stupid’ and then to turn on others with the same hurtful brand. Jesus doesn’t judge them; they’ve judged themselves. Everyone has said in their heart, Read the rest of this entry »

Sermon 1 – Are you in your right mind?

In Mark 5, Jesus heals the man with 2000 demons and the people come and find him in his right mind.

In Romans 8, the Word says that the carnal mind is against God’s mind. Any time you won’t do what God says, you harden your mind. Like arteriosclerosis, if you persist long enough in resistance to the mind of God, you’ll end up with a hard-heart and thus have a spiritual heart attack.

You say, “I love God and do everything He says, to the best of my ability”. Most Christians love Jesus for Read the rest of this entry »
