Strong Sermon! It doesn't take much to separate truth from false belief and Brother Don tells it all in his sermon. I didn't know the Gospel for nearly 80 yrs. but in His time God's Grace and Faith in Jesus Christ came together at the right time and now I am one of God's children. I believe that most of today's churches are either afraid or ignorant of The Truth of Jesus Christ and never give their congregation the Gospel and only lead them to damnation. Thank you Jesus Christ for dying for my sins, and I look for the time to see you in person in heaven through the power of the Holy Spirit. I can sleep in peace each night because of His Grace.
LORD, bring this message to Thy people! Oh, how true this is! They say, "Amen, praise the LORD, God is good"...and all is peace, UNTIL you say, "I'm one of the Holy ones, elect of God from the foundations of the world!" Then the insults begin! They LOVE to say, "We're all brethren" at the same time they say, "Let's not talk about doctrine, it just causes problems..."
WHOA! This is the red flag! Danger, Danger. Danger. Thank you, Pastor Bell for this encouraging word. Thank you so much.
It's one thing for those in the pew to persecute, but when the pastor of a place persecutes you for believing the truth of the Sovereignty of God in salvation, that is the most painful trial I have ever experienced.

Great Sermon! I never really knew of God's sovereignty. Everything in this message was put there for me to hear. I understand now why I left God in the first place. However, God is so merciful that through grace I've been forgiven. Now that I understand that it's not by works that I am saved but by grave through faith in Jesus Christ. Ive been a very fearful person in the sense that I was more concerned with my own salvation than to please God, than to love Jesus and to pick up my cross and die to my sins. Thank you for this message and than you for being a vessel of God. Please pray for me so that God may reveal his true ways and that I may not be blinded by my own beliefs. Thank you!
