Great Sermon! Just listened to this encouraging sermon. Wonderful, faithful preaching. Thank you so much, I am greatly blessed. My husband is my carer. We have no church but joy in knowing we are in Christs building. God bless.
Comforting Sermon! My Lord Christ Jesus, how blessed is Your presence in the storm of this weary and dry land.
May God countinue to give you strength as you preach His word and may God give you peace.
Thank you Pastor Hamilton DEATH PREFERABLE TO RAPTURE
I hear some brethren rejoicing that perhaps the Lord will come, and that therefore they
will not die. I would sooner die, had I my choice. I see no comfort in the hope of not dying.
â€śThey that are alive and remain shall not prevent them that are asleepâ€ť; they shall not have
preference over them that die. And indeed it is written, â€śThe dead in Christ shall rise first:
then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to
meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.â€ť So that kind of priority is
even allotted to the dead in Christ. If I die not, I shall have lost what thousands will have
who die, namely, actual fellowship with Christ in the grave. Let me have it, let me have it
my Lord. Let me wear the clay cold shape of death that once was Thine, and sleep within
the sepulchre as Thou didst. To die and rise again, and be with Thee forever, is to complete
the circle of the perfect. Those who think that to be alive when He cometh will be so great
a glory, will perhaps find it no such great thing compared with death and resurrection, in
the likeness of the Lord Jesus (Spurgeon).C. H. Spurgeon(1834-1892).

Great Sermon! Pastor Hamilton...Be of good courage...Satan is relentless in trying to bring The LORD's people into his pit of unbelief. I was thinking on this sermon and and The Divine Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance of how The LORD Jesus Christ caused me to believe His Doctrine and His Bible when He first saved me. To me this is the greatest gift for the Believer's journey on this cursed earth to His Heaven!!! Praise His NAME! And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (29-39).
Powerful Sermon! Brother Stephen gives us a positive view on how we can benefit from the rest of our lives, even after wasting so much of it. I look back and see how I misused 90% of my life, but since becoming a child of God's I've been blessed with many Spiritual gains in the past couple of years since being "born again." I now see how my remaining years will give me more than all the years I've lived thusfar. It will all be worth it from now on doing the work of the Lord.
Exceptional Sermon! Brother Stephen has given a powerful message that has touched me deeply today. I have not been a regular praying person, but this message has shown me that I have been omitting one of the principles that Christ Jesus taught -- we should be praying -- always, and not just saying prayers, but actually praying in a way that God hears and responds to. Prayer is our most powerful tool to have access to God and to have Him communicate with us. I will start to change my prayer life today and make it a part of my daily life. There are many that I should keep in my prayers and I thank the Lord for making me feel the power of this message. Thank you Brother Stephen and God Bless your teaching.
Great encouragement. Blessed be the Lord for saving and delivering this man from such a bondage! What an encouragement for us: we can take courage to speak to sinners about Christ, because there is salvation and deliverance in Him!
