Courtesy of YouTube, I have watched more than my fair share of sermons lately.
Though the sermons are publicly available, I wanted to package and acknowledge them in a more concise & precise format.
Yet, publicly sharing the list is fraught with risks. The reasons are vast and includes the fact that:
- I started this blog firmly to share technical details
- The people listed here are mostly still living and the evil one will continue to attack each personally and even more their ministry
But, there are things to be gained, as well.
For instance, I have tied so much together through Chuck Missler and I will lean on him and share some of the quotes I heard from him.
- The only barrier to truth is assuming that you already have it.
- “For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and in part I believe it. For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you“. ( 1 Corinthians 11 19-20 )
And, so here goes my list.

|The creator/designer is made evident in the objective order, functionality and design of the universe (atom/cell/DNA/nature) and our consciousness/conscience – it is more irrational to attribute these things to cosmic accident than a conscious Designer

Sermon :- Pray and be alone
There is one commentator. I don’t even know who he is. He said this. “Jesus is the dependent man and this is just where we fail. He withdraws himself into the wilderness and prays ever the dependent as the obedient and victorious man.”
Let’s listen to what he says. He is saying that it is Jesus’ dependence upon God that wrought the obedience and victory.
Now, Matthew Poole writes this. “We meet with Christ often, commending to us the duty of secret prayer by his own example.”
That is so convicting because I am commending you to secret prayer by my word. But would I by my example?
It is a sobering thing to preach.
It says, “We meet Christ often, compelling us to the duty of secret prayer by his own example as he had done by his precept and always choosing for it the most private and retired places to teach us to go and to do likewise, often to pray to our Father which seeth in secret and his example more presses us because we have much more business with God in prayer than he had.”
Do you know what he means by that? Matthew Poole is saying we have more business to do with God in prayer than Jesus. Why? He says, “For this reason. Jesus had no sins to confess, nor to beg pardon for, no need to ask for any sanctifying habits of grace. Jesus lived a life of prayer and frequently it was his custom to participate in hidden prayer with his Father. And yet he had nothing of the need that we have. He had no need of confessing sin. He had no pardon to beg. He had no need to cry out for grace upon grace and mercy upon mercy like we do.”

Sermon :- Spiritual Winter ( part 4 of 4 )
After Church, all these precious saints walk up to you and say Pastor you really blessed me, and we just want you to know, we are praying for you.
And, I say thank you so much, it means everything.
Spiritual Winter, will beat the ungratefulness out of you, and when it is over, you will be Thankful.
It is Thursday morning and I just burnt a couple of hours cleaning out this list.
I leave you with a couple of shared thoughts and work:
Peter Bradley Adams – The Longer I run
When my blood runs warm with the warm red wine
I miss the life that I left behind
But when I hear the sound of the blackbirds cry
I know I left in the nick of time
If I wander til I die
May I know who’s hand I’m in
If my home I’ll never find
And let me live again
And, an Abraham Lincoln’s quote that resonates and I first heard from President Obama:
The times have changed – and so have I. I’m no longer just a candidate. I’m the President. I know what it means to send young Americans into battle, for I have held in my arms the mothers and fathers of those who did n’t return. I have shared the pain of families who have lost their homes, and the frustration of workers who have lost their jobs. If the critics are right that I have made all my decisions based on polls, then I must not be very good at reading them. And while I’m proud of what we have achieved together, I’m far more mindful of my own failings, knowing exactly what Lincoln meant when he said, “I have been driven to my knees many times by the overwhelming conviction that I had no place else to go.
And, another quote that goes like “If there are things worth pondering and taking time to wrestle with and dialogue about, they are things such as this“.
Yet foremost in our mind, the Lord, our God, who brought all things together and knows how much he paid and pays for each of us.
Yet, he says “I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you“.
The most important thing with writing is one expects and opens self up for feedback. This morning at work, I shared with Gabriel. He gave me a word that fits in:
1 Timothy 4:16
A Good Minister of Jesus Christ
Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress will be evident to all. Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.
