Iâ€™m sure there has rarely been a Christmas sermon this deep, this rich, this glorifying to Christ. This displays Godâ€™s majesty and his Soverignty over history to unfold all events that culminate to the incarnation of himself into our space-time and dwelling among us. The sacrificial Lamb is in manifold wonder here. If youâ€™re ever in need of a Christmas sermon to deeply penetrate yours, or anotherâ€™s soul, here in this sermon, is the wonderful unique story of Christ to do just that. Blessed be the Lamb!
Great Sermon! Thank you pastor Tomassian. This message provided answers for me specifically and my daughter, incidentally.
I also want to thank McCausland for posting. McCausland, I have trusted your input about many messages and have been encouraged in ways that only God knows. It began years ago when I listened to, I believe, your pastor Chalan Hetherington. He has nourished my soul. May God bless you both.
Honest appraisal His life should provide a cautionary tale for all young ministers out there looking to take the world by storm, and make a name for themselves. You are neither more nor less than what God thinks of you. The fame and opinion of this world of empty show are not only irrelevant, but detrimental to a Christian. If a Christian minister has the fame of this world, he probably is riding fences he ought not to ride.
I think Billy Graham started out with good intentions. He may have originally thought that by making certain deals, such as with the Catholic church, the end would justify the means; that he could parlay his fame into a ministry that would get him to reach unreached peoples. Unfortunately, that's not how fame works. You can't play the devil's game, and win it for Christ. The only way to win against the devil, is not to play.
What he ended up accomplishing is a staggering number of people who think they have "Get Into Heaven Free" cards because they suffered the embarrassment of walking an aisle once, and thus, they never have to worry about it again. Unfortunately, they were never given to understand that they have to pick up their cross and die daily, and that they are bondservants bought with a heavy price. They need our prayers for a real conversion.
Billy Graham: Rebellious Apostate This sermon shows why Billy Graham was a rebellious apostate. This apostate pastor lead America in rebellion against Yehovah, especially with his appearance on the Crystal Cathedral's Hour of Power on 31 May, 1997. Billy Graham lived up to his reputation as America's Pastor since Mr. Graham partnered with other rebellious apostates across America and around the world. Apostasy in the church is a sign of the coming Antichrist and Billy Graham's apostasy was evidence that America is preparing the world to receive the Antichrist. While this sermon primarily mentions Billy Graham, it is a warning that apostasy is a sign of rebellion against the Righteous Authority of Yehovah and His Anointed Messiah, Yeshua Hamashiach, which is the Name of Jesus Christ in Hebrew.
Billy Graham: America's Apostate Pastor Billy Graham (November 07, 1918 â€“ February 21, 2018) definitely lived up to his reputation as America's Pastor. Mr. Graham promoted and propagated apostasy from America to all around the world. Only an apostate pastor like Billy Graham would seek worldly honors in Satan's Kingdom like being called "The Pastor Of The U.S. Presidents." Not to mention that Billy Graham had the worldly honor of lying in the U.S. Capitol where the United State Congress is based. Of course, Jesus and His Apostles would be at odds with the dignitaries of this world, including the politicians, presidents, popular musicians, congressional legislators, supreme court justices, professional athletes, and even worldly pastors. Billy Graham's apostasy was most evident in that most evangelicals feel at home in this ungodly world, whereas Jesus Christ and His Apostles were persecuted by the unrighteous world. It is worth noting John 15:18-21 in times like these.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Thomassian for your straightforward presentation. Of course, we will never know for sure, until we get to Heaven, Dr. Graham's impact on the Gospel presentation. God will use who he will to accomplish His purposes in Salvation. However, Dr. Graham's associations with Liberal theologians and his apparent acceptance of Rome were, of course, problematic. Apparently, he shunned the pleas of Bible-believing fundamentalists in the 60s to abandon his leanings toward befriending liberals. This was his ultimate undoing.
