Sunday's Sermons

Yesterday's sermons were about God's judgment on his people. The morning sermon was from Malachi 2:1-9, titled "Taking God Seriously". The main points are that we, as God's people, need to study the bible and then apply that knowledge in our everyday life. God has guidelines for ministers also. they are
  1. Stand in awe of God.
  2. Study God's word.
  3. Give biblical advice.
  4. Pray for the people.
  5. Turn people from sin to righteousness.

God's top 3 activities for for ministers are

  1. study
  2. teaching and preaching
  3. praying

Here is link to read the passage for yourself.

The evening sermon was Ezekiel 19-21. These chapters are a lamentation over the judgment coming to Israel. God is judging them for their disobedience. Ezekiel has been preaching repentance and the people have been ignoring it. God can tolerate only so much sin before He says "Enough already!". Judgment is coming to America soon too. How long can we ignore God before He has the same reaction? We are killing 3,000 unborn children every day by abortion. The holocaust must stop now.
