Today's Top-100 Protestant Christian Sermons...

Brought To You By Some of The World's Finest, Most Faithful & Learned Calvinist Protestant Christian Preachers on Planet Earth. (In other words... Truth-Seeker... these sermons are the real deal. No fluff or intellectual poison!)

Sermon #1: Roman Catholic Radio Debate: "Is The Pope Really The Anti-Christ?"

Is the Pope really the Antichrist? What about the institution he represents? Is Roman Catholicism Satan’s master counterfeit, or is it not? Is it possible for someone who holds to the doctrinal teachings of Roman Catholicism — doctrines of demons is what the Bible calls them – see 1st Timothy 4: 1-3 — to be able to enter into Heaven, and thereby escape eternity in Hell for the punishment of his sins? 

My friend, if you are a Roman Catholic, while also claiming to be a Truth Seeker, I must strongly urge you to listen to this debate. Using your own God-given rational mind, logic, and judgement, try to come to some kind of conclusion yourself. You see, if you are a Roman Catholic, the eternal destiny of your soul could well depend upon your answer. And… if you are Jewish… I would strongly urge you to listen to this debate, too. Throughout history, and because of Roman Catholicism’s untold, innumerable brutalities against our beloved Jewish friends, Christianity has gotten a big black eye in the minds of millions of Jews. But Roman Catholicism is NOT Christianity. 

In fact, it never has been. Calvinism, or Puritanism, is Christianity. In fact, from Genesis to Revelation, the one, indisputable, overriding theme throughout the Holy Scriptures is that SALVATION IS ALL OF GRACE. Christ’s BLOOD ATONEMENT and IMPUTED RIGHTEOUSNESS has ever and only been THE ONLY WAY through Heaven’s gate. (All other “paths”… and all other “religions”… including America’s new religions of Socialism and Secular Humanism… will only lead you down into the deep, dark, lonely pits of Hellfire forever.) 

One more thing. You know what’s so fascinating? It’s the way a simple Protestant Christian sermon (or, in this instance, a radio debate) can become the gateway to new insights and intellectual horizons. For example, this radio debate was the catalyst for purchasing James A. Wylie’s two books, The History of Protestantism and The Papacy

The History of Protestantism chronicles various pope’s centuries-long bloody wars against the millions of European men, women and children who held to the clearly revealed Biblical doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone. (Also fascinating is the fact that the first Protestants were actually Italians who were located in… and had escaped to… towns and villages in the mountainous regions of northern Italy. At the time, they were known as Waldensians.)

His other book, The Papacy, chronicles the cancerous, destructive effects of Roman Catholicism upon individuals… families… nations…  entire continents.

"And what is the object of those hospitals? It is chiefly to provide for the illicit offspring of priests and nuns, and such other unmarried females as the priests can seduce through the confessional. But it will be said, there are no hospitals attached to nunneries in this country. True, there are not; but I say, of my own knowledge and my own experience through the confessional, that it would be well if there were; there would be fewer abortions, THERE WOULD BE FEWER INFANTS STRANGLED AND MURDERED. It is not generally known to Americans, that the crime of procuring abortion -- a crime which our laws pronounce to be a felony -- is a common every day crime in Popish nunneries. It is not known to Americans -- but let it be henceforward be known to them -- that the strangling and putting to death, is common in nunneries throughout this country."

William Hogan. From his book, Auricular Confession and Popish Nunneries. Published in 1854.

(Does that sound far-fetched to you? Actually, it isn’t. WHY… for example… did the Russian people go down the Communist path? In other words, Satan’s Marxist Secular Humanist path — one that could only lead to the death of millions, enslavement and totalitarian Statism. Only one reason. Their society was permeated with the Eastern Orthodox religion — which is but a different but equally deadly type of Roman Catholicism. 

Remember: Ritualism equates to spiritual death — for individuals, families, entire societies; the Tree of Liberty ONLY grows and thrives on Protestant soil, a realization that could have saved America tens of thousands in lost lives and trillions in cash. For example, the Tree of Liberty never could have taken root in Roman Catholic Vietnam; nor could there ever have been such a thing as an “Arab Spring” in Mohammedan countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. These were the grandiose liberal delusions of American politicians that cost tens of thousands of young people their lives. No point in fighting wars unless soldiers and missionaries are allowed to sow the seeds of God’s pure Word the Bible in conquered lands — wedded, of course, with solid Calvinist creeds like the Westminster or Belgic Confessions.)  

Neither of these two books would likely be found in the history course curriculum at any of today’s much vaunted Ivy League colleges. Which is why I would credit anyone who reads these two books with a richer… deeper understanding of history than any Ivy League college history major graduate who had not read them.

Sermon #2: Why God Will Judge America. Pastor Brian Schwertley.

Pastor Schwertley’s sermon text comes from Psalm 9, verse 17: “The wicked shall be turned into Hell, and all the nations that forget God.” As of April, 2020, not only is America being punished for its many longstanding sins, but so too is the rest of the world. And let’s face it. America has been dancing with the Devil now for DECADES. China’s Mao and his Satanic socialist policies were responsible for killing over twenty million of his own people. Some think it was more like thirty million. And let’s not forget all the carnage and misery caused by the Korean War, when Mao wickedly tried to STEAL (See JEHOVAH’s 8th Commandment) South Korea out from a free people.

These numbers aren’t just statistics. They represent individual human beings; individual souls; lives that were stomped out by Christ-hating atheist statists, much like what is done to babies in the womb right here in the United States. But communists and socialists (they are basically one and the same) do NOT care about God-ordained individual rights. Nor do they believe in the Biblical revelation of the immortality of individual souls. 

They won’t learn about that until AFTER they die and wake up down in Hell. Too late!

In addition, they absolutely HATE the One true God — Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Why? Because JEHOVAH represents a threat to their money and power. Like all “good” Marxists, America’s liberal politicians love to spout on about the “greater good”… or “protecting the Earth”… rather than about individual liberty, freedom in Christ, and God-ordained private property rights (see JEHOVAH’S 8th and 10th Commandments). But, what they really mean by the “greater good” is actually their own good. It was no different in Christ’s day, when He often had to rebuke the money and power hungry ecclesiastical politicians — the pharisees and scribes.  

Eventually… monster-sized governments becomes a socialist society’s “god.” This is what has happened here in America. But Socialism is a false god. A soul-damning, culture and country-killing “god.” 

And, like the Philistines’ god Dagon, JEHOVAH will topple it down and cut off its legs — leaving only a stump. You see, unless we repent as a nation, WORSE JUDGMENTS from the God of Abraham and Issac and Jacob — the One, true, Triune JEHOVAH of Scripture–  will be coming our way.

So why would Richard Nixon have met with that Communist human butcher, Mao? And why would America’s politicians have turned a blind eye upon Communist China’s atrocities when they voted to confer Permanent Normal Trade Relations status to China in the year of our Lord 2000? Being Christ-hating liberals, most politicians lack wisdom. They have never grasped the fact… or, more likely, have been willfully ignorant of it… that FREEDOM only grows and thrives on PROTESTANT SOIL. They have never realized that “democracy” has become but one more false American idol and “god.” 

Mao was a Marxist-Socialist totalitarian killer; so was Hitler; so was Stalin; so was Pol Pot; so was Ho Chi Minh; ALL their followers became blind followers and ruthless killers as well. Today, in America, we have totalitarian Marxist socialist politicians who finance INFANTICIDE — MURDER — with public funds; who STEAL money from hard-working Americans to dole it out to the lazy (in exchange, of course, for the vote)… and who believe that homosexuals have a constitutional “right” to be “married.” 

These kinds of policies destroy nations and put men, women and children on to a path that leads to national judgment by God… and then down into Hell. 

Does that make sense?

I ask you, what could be more foolish than for a politician to enact policies that incur God’s anger and wrath… 

… and which damn men’s souls to an ETERNITY in Hellfire forever?  

For the past fifty years, America, as a nation… and as a people… has been guilty of many God-dishonoring sins. And in this sermon, Pastor Brian Schwertley names them all. It seems to me as though the American people are now presented with a stark, simple choice: 

Either Turn to Christ and Repent... or Perish!

Sermon #3: The Jewish People's Rejection of God's Blood Atonement Refuted (Parts 1 & 2)

In this, the second of our Top-100 Sermons series, Pastor Brian Schwertley — “The Manassa Mauler” of modern Reformed/Calvinist Protestant preachers — makes the case (while absolutely proving) that today’s Judaism is actually the un-Biblical, made-up religion of the Pharisees, having little to no resemblance to JEHOVAH’s divinely revealed religion of Moses’ day. When you come right down to it, the biggest question that Pastor Schwertley poses to every Jew now living his life apart from Jesus Christ the Messiah is this: “How does the modern religion of the Jews deal with the universal, soul-damning plague of personal sin?” 

To this all-important, life or death question, the answer that modern Judaism provides comes up short. Way short. Why? Because… as the title of this sermon implies… for the past 2000-plus years the vast majority of our beloved Jewish friends have REJECTED God’s own instituted, ordained BLOOD ATONEMENT

My dearly beloved Jewish friend, I must urge you NOT to gamble the future state of YOUR immortal soul upon the corrupt traditions and teachings of fallen men (meaning, today’s often willfully blind ecclesiastical politicians). Instead, stick to God’s Word. Read your Bible. Try to figure this out for yourself. There’s too much at stake. And there are a LOT of resources on this site that will point you in the right direction, which is, of course, to your Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.   

As you listen to this two-part sermon series, may God the Holy Spirit be gracious in helping you to see… and understand… that your ONLY hope for the salvation of your immortal soul lies in having all of your sins BLOTTED OUT and PUT AWAY by the spotless Lamb of God… Israel’s Messiah… the Lord Jesus Christ.

"But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets, Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ, whom God set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness, that he may be just, and the justifier of him who believeth in Jesus."

Holy Bible Romans 3: 21-26

Sermon #4: What Hell Will Be Like? Answer: BAD! In Fact, So Bad That You'd Better Deal With It ... NOW! (Part 3 in a 4-part sermon series on the Biblical doctrine of Hell)

Let’s face it. The Calvinist Protestant’s Christian (or, for that matter, a Messianic Jew’s – both views should line up pretty well, provided that the viewpoint is founded upon the doctrine of God’s Sovereign Grace alone) world view is RADICALLY DIFFERENT from that of the spiritually deaf, dumb, and blind secular humanist’s.  Deep down, the JEHOVAH-hating secular humanist knows the One true God exists. But, he wants to be his own “god!” He wants to live his life his way… APART from the holy commandments and duties spelled out in God’s pure Word, the 66 books of His pure, Holy Spirit-inspired revelation, the Bible. (GIANT PRINT King James Version best.) 

There is, of course, a price that must be paid for this way of thinking and living. That price is Hell. 

ETERNITY in Hell!

My friend, you wouldn’t be on this site were it not for the fact that you are a Truth Seeker. Well, the truth is, if your sins are not BLOTTED OUT by the BLOOD ATONEMENT of Christ, then you will be DOOMED to pay for your sins yourself in Hellfire forever. 

There are two main purposes of this site. First, to extol the power and sovereignty of our great Triune JEHOVAH. Second, as an evangelical outreach to all of our beloved Jewish friends. But, this site also serves as a WARNING to everyone who is not a believer in Israel’s Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. And that is that apart from faith in Christ and repentance from sin, you are in a very dangerous place. 

How dangerous? To find out, just listen to this sermon. And, after you have done that, be sure to text out the link to this sermon to all of your friends and loved ones. They too need to know the grave danger that awaits them beyond the grave until and unless they come to saving faith in Israel’s Messiah… the second person of the Trinity… the Lord Jesus Christ.  

DON’T WASTE A DAY! Or listen to friends who like to party… or be influenced by what your God-hating secular humanist college professors would have you believe about the Bible or the meaning of life. No. Instead, down on your knees, my friend! Plead the precious blood of Christ to the Father (your ONLY hope). Ask the Father to apply the BLOOD ATONEMENT of His Dear Son to your immortal soul… and then… that He seal His gift of faith unto your heart and mind by God the Holy Spirit. Do it today. Do it now. Before it’s too late. Amen. 

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me ye cursed, into EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels: and these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT, but the righteous unto life eternal."

Matthew 25:41, 46

"The Passover was doubly a witness to blood required. Blood was required, first, of all Egypt for their unbelief. the firstborn represented in their person the whole household, and the sentence of death passed against them was a death sentence against all. Second, Israel no less than Egypt was under sentence of death. THERE WAS NO MERIT IN THEM TO SAVE THEM, NOR COULD THERE BE. But the death sentence passed against the covenant people was assumed by God the Son in the type of the blood of the lamb. The same double witness to blood appears in the cross. First, Israel was sentenced to death (Matthew 24) and destined for destruction for its treason to the covenant. Second, the people of Christ were redeemed by the blood of the covenant and were delivered from the judgment on Jerusalem and Judea."

Rousas John Rushdoony. The Institutes of Biblical Law.

Sermon #5: God's Amazing Grace Required and Displayed. The Life and Times of Judah the Bachelor. (Bible Text: Genesis 38)

The primary purpose of this site is to publish God’s Gospel of Grace — SALVATION from SIN and DEATH and HELL — mainly to the Jews. And, as I understand it, the word Gospel actually means good news. But let’s be clear about something. This ‘good news’ is not just needed by today’s descendants of the tribe of Judah. No. You see, JEHOVAH’s GOSPEL OF GRACE is needed by every man, woman and child on the planet. 

Yes, the proclamation of God’s Gospel of Grace to all our beloved Jewish friends is indeed the main purpose of this site. And in the making of that proclamation, every reasonable fact and argument will be used in the building of our case. 

There are two key propositions this sermon will help to prove: (1) That salvation (from sin and Hell) is ALL OF GRACE. And (2), that ALL of the saved Old Testament Jews — both before and during the time of Christ — were actually Messianic Jews. In other words… logically… that THE WHOLE BIBLE IS CHRISTIANITY. 

If you are Jewish, you are likely going to be shocked and amazed about what is said in this sermon about your spiritual and biological forefather, Judah — the forth son of Jacob by Leah and the progenitor of the remnant of today’s Jewish people.  

 

Old school master's depiction of Judah soliciting Tamar, circa 1728. Click the image to listen to this valuable sermon on JEHOVAH's grace for lost sinners - GRACE for Jews and Gentiles alike!

And, should you be one of the Father’s elect (remember, SALVATION IS ALL OF GRACE), you too will also see… and understand… the irresistible power of JEHOVAH’s electing grace for fallen, sin-cursed men. May it be so for you and yours today. Amen and amen. 

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN TH FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1st Timothy 3:16

Sermon #6: Noah's Flood: A Paradigm of Judgment, by Brian Schwertley. How Millions of God-Hating Secular Humanists, Idolaters and False Worshippers Were Swept Away... Then Cast Into Hell... By God's Great Flood.

To the twisted, blind, Christ-hating secular humanist mind, the idea that God would slaughter tens… or, more likely… hundreds of millions …of men, women, and children in the Great Flood of Noah’s day, is unthinkable, hated, abhorrent. 

(Such is the natural state of hatred toward Almighty God in the unregenerate mind — see Romans 8: 7) Yet, the Flood is an historical FACT that you, a modern man, ought to think about once in awhile (if not every day, then maybe at least once a week). 

Why?

The reason is simple. You see, in God’s telling of this historical, factual account (through the Holy Spirit-inspired writings of God’s servant, the Iron Man Moses), JEHOVAH is warning us — TODAY, here and now — that Judgment Day IS coming — for you … for me … for everyone you know and love and care about … as well as for the rest of fallen, sin-cursed mankind, too — the dead, the living, and those yet unborn. 

In this hard-hitting sermon entitled Noah’s Flood: A Paradigm of Judgment, Pastor Schwertley smashes to bits a number of lies and myths held as true by most of the modern world. 

He also points you to the One who typified the Ark — the Lord Jesus Christ Himself — the ONLY Savior of guilty sinners (that’s you and me).  

 

 

In the days of Noah, with the exception of eight souls saved by grace, hundreds of millions of Christ-hating secular humanists - men, women, and children - perished in the Great Flood and are now down in Hell awaiting God's final Judgment Day. Your urgent duty TODAY is to BELIEVE God's Gospel of Grace through faith in the blood atonement and imputed righteousness of Christ... and to repent of ALL of your sins, using God's pure Word the 66 Holy Spirit-inspired Books of the Bible -- King James Version best -- AND His Holy Commandments as your ethical standard and moral compass for life and living. Amen and amen. "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fail. For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2nd Peter 1:10-11) "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." (1st John 1:3-5)

Sermon #7: Noah: The Movie Exposed! What REALLY Happened During the Final Days Leading Up To The Flood That Drowned All of Antediluvian Mankind... With the Exception of Eight Souls Saved By Sovereign Grace.

Recently I watched some clips of Noah, the movie, on YouTube. And you know what? The movie doesn’t seem half bad. In fact, it looks pretty good. Look, it’s a Hollywood-style movie. It’s NOT an historical documentary. And so, I wouldn’t expect it to line up 100% with the Biblical… 100% accurate… Holy Spirit-inspired account revealed to us in God’s pure and perfect Word, the 66 books of the King James Bible. 

That having been said, still, I am duty-bound to point out at least one or two things the movie got wrong.

Why bother, you ask? Well, simply because of the staggering, MASSIVE IGNORANCE of the contents of the Bible that today so characterizes the masses of men in what is left of so-called “Western Civilization” — cancer-ridden as it is by every form of Marxist Socialist strain of God-hating… soul-damning Secular Humanism. (America’s New-Age  Religion.)

So first, for example, let’s get clear about what actually happened during the last days leading up to the end of the Antediluvian Age. Contrary to Noah the film, there was no gladiatorial-like scene in which the character of Noah (played by Russel Crowe) fought off swarming bands of Cain’s wicked seed as they attempted to storm the Ark… once they finally realized that Judgment Day had really come for them. 

Something else happened. Something I never thought about before I heard this sermon by master Calvinist Protestant preacher Edward Donnelly. Something which had to do with the door of the Ark.  

The Deluge, by French master engraver, Paul Gustave Dore (1832-1833). The artist depicts but one small group out of the hundreds of millions of people who perished in God's Great Flood. Have you been born again from above? Have you repented of your sins? Are you trusting in the shed blood of Israel's Messiah - the Lord Jesus Christ - for the payment of your sins? If not, then you too will suffer the same fate of the Antediluvian race. You too will be judged by God and sentenced to Hell forever, with no chance of cutting a plea bargain, getting paroled, or ever again seeing the light of day. You too will be lost FOREVER.

This sermon will give you the REAL low down on the fate of those hundreds of millions of BEFORE-THE-FLOOD souls who sadly rejected God’s Gospel of Grace, as preached to them in those days by Noah. 

(I don’t mean to imply that Noah preached to all of them, though news of his extraordinary work in building the Ark… which took 120 years of hard, determined work… must have traveled far and wide. Noah’s was one of God’s Iron Men, as was Job, Daniel, Elijah, and many other Old Testament saints as well.) 

This sermon also provides a timely warning for you and me… TODAY! You see, JUDGMENT DAY is coming. And when it does, if your sins were not BLOTTED OUT by the BLOOD ATONEMENT of Israel’s Messiah… the Lord Jesus Christ… then you too will suffer the same fate of all those millions of men, women and children who perished in The Flood… and who are now… sadly… down in Hell. 

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."  

Matthew 24: 35-39

Sermon #8: Whatever Happened to the Millions of People From the Old World Whom God Destroyed In the Great Flood of Noah's Day?

After what is now three Noah’s Flood sermons in a row, you may be wondering: “Why all this emphasis  on the Great Flood of Noah’s Day?” The answer couldn’t be simpler or more relevant to you and me and everyone you know and everyone you don’t know. Therefore, I have to keep hammering home this critical point: to live and die apart from faith in Israel’s Messiah simply means there will come a day when there will be Hell to pay.

Literally.

Hellfire forever will be the condemnation you will face for having lived and died apart from faith alone in the blood atonement of Christ alone; the loss of your soul forever will be the “fine” meted out by God to you for having violated (meaning, broken) each one of His inflexible moral laws — summarized in the Ten Commandments and handed by God to Moses on Mount Sinai.  

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscious toward God) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: Who is gone into Heaven, and is on the right hand of God; and angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him." 1st Peter 3:18-22

Most interesting was Pastor Hamilton’s handling of 1st Peter 3: 18-22. Prior to hearing this sermon, I never understood what was meant by the phrase from 1st Peter 3, the spirits in prison

Who were the spirits and where was the prison? 

I know that to some people Hell must seem a  fantastic idea, living as we do in this modern age of the Internet, rocket ships and the steam iron. But again, I must continue to reemphasize certain facts of life that have been supernaturally revealed to us by the Creator of the universe via His pure and perfect Word, the 66 books of the King James Bible.

 

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord."

Genesis 6: 5-8

One of those facts is that, contrary to what the teeming hordes of fallen mankind might think, on Judgment Day God is NOT going to be soft on your sins. No. And He PROVED IT in the days of Noah, when ONLY EIGHT PEOPLE out of all of fallen mankind were saved from a watery grave and then eternal judgment. My friend, your ONLY WAY of escaping the coming Judgment is to BELIEVE and TRUST in the Lord Jesus Christ, as he is revealed in the 66 books of the Bible (King James Version best).

Why not do that today? In fact, why not do that right now

Sermon #9: God's Regulative, Or Puritan Principle of Worship. What Is It... And Why Is It So Important For You To Get Right Each Sunday Lord's Day Sabbath?

Have you ever thought about the Regulative or Puritan Principle of Worship? If you’re a member of a confessional Presbyterian church — one that holds to either the Westminster Confession of Faith or Heidelberg Catechism — it’s possible you have. On the other hand, even if that’s the case, there’s still a good chance you haven’t. So what exactly is it? In a nutshell, God’s Regulative Principle of Worship teaches us that anything not commanded by God Himself is… STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! 

In other words, if your pastor and elders can’t provide a precise Scriptural warrant for it, it shouldn’t be found  inside of Christ’s church. Today… simply stated… that would mean things like: choruses… uninspired, man-made songs and hymns… slide projectors… pianos, organs, drums, electric guitars. Also: images of Christ and Mary and statues of “saints”. In addition: Popish man-made “holidays” like Christmas and Easter and Lent. 

O.K., I hear what you’re saying. You like Christmas, even though it’s a Popish “holiday” with pagan roots. But listen: if you really have a heart for doing things God’s way, all of that stuff has GOT TO GO. And in the long run, believe me, it’ll be worth it. Not only for you, but for your family too. (Not to mention the fact you’ll save a bundle on Christmas presents.) Look: if you want your worship to be ACCEPTABLE in God’s sight (as you absolutely should), you’re going to need to know what God’s Regulative Principle for Worship is. And then start applying it to your life. That’s what these next two sermons (parts 1 & 2) are all about. By listening to these sermons from Presbyterian minister and accomplished Calvinist writer (who strictly held to Exclusive Psalmody), G.I. Williamson, here are just a few of the things you stand to learn:  

German artist's etching (circa 1630) depicting Nadab and Abihu being consumed by the fire of God's anger and wrath for having violated His clear, explicit instructions regarding how His chosen people the Jews were to be led in worship by the Levitical priestly caste. The brothers' offense? Offering a form of worship originating from their own sinful imaginations but not authorized by the clear teachings and directives of His Word -- a SIN committed by almost every Protestant pastor and congregation in almost every church on the planet. In addition to the plagues and curse of the Christ-hating Marxist--Socialist government schools (every grammar and high school should be PRIVATE and Calvinist Protestant), America and Europe and Canada are DYING civilizations precisely because so-called "Protestant" Christian churches no longer worship God HIS way. Want solid proof? When was the last time YOU worshiped our great Triune God and Savior -- the Savior from ETERNAL DAMNATION in HELL -- with His own appointed, authorized Psalter? In other words, when was the last time you worshiped God HIS way?
  • Why knowing how NOT to worship God is just as important as knowing HOW to worship Him.
  • How violating God's Regulative Principle of Worship cost two of Moses' nephews their lives.
  • Cain's Big Mistake.
  • Why carefully applying the Biblical principle of Sola Scriptura (coupled with humility) ALWAYS beats presumption, arrogance and human imagination when worshiping God each and every Lord's Day Sunday Sabbath.

And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said unto Aaron, This it is that the Lord spoke, saying, I will be sanctified that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

Leviticus 10: 1 - 3
  • The sad, serious mistake King Saul (Israel's first king) made when worshiping God... and how that single act of violating JEHOVAH's Regulative Principle cost him his crown. (It not only cost him the throne, it also contributed to his loss of sanity. King Saul's sin? His failure to abide by the Biblical principle of separation of church and state in matters of worship. Yes, that iron clad principle of Liberty and Freedom could even be discerned in JEHOVAH's Old Testament revelation!)
  • Why God struck down Uzzah... simply for trying to do what most people would have thought to have been a "good deed." (There's an underlying principle here. God doesn't like it when Christian's depart from His Law Word -- especially when it comes to HOW we are to worship the One true, living God and Savior of our immortal souls. Take, for example, the Ten Tribes of Israel. Because these tribes FAILED to worship God HIS WAY -- which meant at the Temple in Jerusalem -- it only took about 220 years for the Ten Tribes of Israel to become the Ten LOST Tribes of Israel. Here's a simple test for finding out whether your pastor and elders are being faithful to God's Regulative Principle of Worship: When was the last time you sang a hymn of praise with God's Holy Spirit-inspired, appointed Psalter?)
  • The important implications regarding worship contained in Christ's Great Commission given to His Apostles. And lots more!

One more thing and then we’re done. I must tell you that writing this section wasn’t easy. In fact, it leaves me feeling sad. You know why? Because I haven’t liked bringing to light the sins of past men relative to their failure to worship God HIS way. And I know my own sins all to well. 

Saul was a brave and mighty warrior, and Uzzah may not have realized that only Levitical priests were allowed to touch or handle the holy Ark of the Covenant. 

You know, we only get ONE SHOT at this game called Life — Life in a Fallen, sin-cursed world. So let’s not forget Life’s Chief Aim — which is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever (Westminster Catechism Q & A #1). Worshiping God HIS WAY will go a long way toward helping you to achieve that all-important end. Click the links below to find out what worshiping God HIS WAY is all about… from a man eminently qualified to show you how.

Sermon #10: The Case For Exclusive Psalmody. By Presbyterian Minister Brian Schwertley.

Have you ever wondered why the worship at most churches you visit today seems to be so MAN CENTERED… as opposed to GOD-CENTERED?  What about the church you’re now attending? Would you say that the focus of your worship is on glorifying our great God and Savior — the infinite holy One who came down to earth to endure the agony of the cross to save your soul from the condemnation of your sins (and mine) in Hell… or… does it sometimes strike you as being “rinky-dink” … or irreverent? 

Of course, I have no idea of what kind of church you’re attending. (Hopefully, it’s a faithful confessional Calvinist Presbyterian one.)  But, I will tell you this. If you’re not worshiping Jehovah with His Holy Spirit-inspired Psalms, then you and your family are missing out on something good. 

Not only that, you are also failing to worship God HIS way, which is with His ONLY authorized hymnal — the Psalter.

Look, I realize that trying to find a God-honoring Psalm-singing church these days is like trying to find that proverbial needle in the haystack. Moreover, most people today simply aren’t interested in worshiping God HIS way. But, by listening to this insightful and comprehensive sermon — The Case For Exclusive Psalmody — you just might be inspired to at least start looking for one. Or… maybe even starting a church plant of your own — with the help of some other like-minded Calvinist Christian people. Now, provided your new church members were committed to becoming evangelical — to get involved with reaching out to the LOST in their community with God’s Gospel of pure, saving Grace — it would surely be worth it. (By doing that, you would avoid going on to become but one more dead-as-a-door-nail “orthodox” church.) My friend, believe me, there is NOTHING like worshiping our great God and Savior than with His Holy Spirit-inspired Psalms. In other words, HIS way! 

Hopefully… someday… you’ll be able to discover that truth for yourself.

Especially in great questions of worship it is wise to know we are right. There is no question as to the Psalms being right, but no man under the sun can show it is right to sing human hymns in the worship of God. The Bible gives absolutely no warrant therefor. Its trend is wholly against it."

Rev. James A. Grier. From his book, A Primer on Exclusive Psalmody.

Sermon #11: "Is Jesus Christ God?" This May Be THE Single Most Important Question Every Man Must Answer for Himself During His Short Stay Here on Planet Earth. To Get It Wrong Means Missing Out On Going To Heaven. By Presbyterian Minister Brian Schwertley.

(WARNING: Don't Be Duped by the "Pope" and His Armies of Poor, Deluded, Ignorant "Priests!" For if You Miss Going To Heaven, There Will Be Only One Alternative Abode for Your Immortal Soul: ETERNITY in HELL! There is NO SUCH PLACE AS PURGATORY - a SHAMEFUL, Deceptive and Dangerous LIE of Roman Catholicism!)

Let’s face it. If you’re willing to think about it (and… by the way…  MOST of fallen, sin-cursed, TOTALLY DEPRAVED mankind IS NOT), Brian Schwertley is absolutely right. Right from the start, he makes the assertion that the question, “Is Jesus Christ God?” … is, indeed, THE single most important question that every man must answer for himself if he hopes to escape Hell and enter into Heaven the minute he dies. 

Why is this question so important? Actually, for many reasons. 

(As one example, if your answer is wrong, you may now be wasting valuable time “worshiping” a “god” that doesn’t even exist — which, of course, makes you guilty of the sin of IDOLATRY… a SIN that God HATES, and one He has promised to punish — in this world and the next. Or… because you don’t believe in God at all… the result of having been duped into believing what your high school “teachers” and college “professors” taught you about “evolution” — the Satanic LIE that our world is tens or even HUNDREDS of billions of years old, rather than 5 or 6 or 10,000 years, at most. So that now it’s become all-to-easy for you to not think about God at all.  After all, what’s the point of gaining knowledge about Christ… and the Triune nature of JEHOVAH… if He doesn’t even exist!) 

But, one of THE most important reasons of all is that God’s pure Word, the 66 books of the Holy Spirit-inspired Bible (King James Version best), teaches that ALL MEN ARE SINNERS… and that ALL MEN are guilty in God’s sight of having BROKEN (violated) His holy and inflexible moral laws.  

Are you guilty of having sinned? In other words, have you ever VIOLATED any one of God’s moral laws? No doubt you have. (So have I. In fact, way too many times to count… way too many to number.) To prove that, all you would need do is go to Exodus chapter 20 and then read JEHOVAH’S Ten Commandments. Go ahead and do it. Read each one of them carefully. Have you done that? Good! 

Is Jesus Christ eternal God? In other words, Israel's long-awaited Messiah, as well as the Savior of the world - meaning, the Savior (from Hell) of both Jew and Gentile? The 66 Holy Spirit-inspired books of the Bible (King James Version best) says that He is. In fact, we have the first gleanings of the Trinity right there in Genesis chapter 1, verse 26: "And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness." And, in fact, the evidence that Jesus Christ is co-eternal God with the Father and Holy Spirit is so overwhelming that, if Jesus is not God, then one could reasonably conclude there likely is no God. For... according to the testimony and evidence of the Scriptures, how could Jesus Christ NOT be God? My friend, to be willfully ignorant of the deity of Christ is to commit spiritual suicide and to court the eternal damnation of your own immortal soul. Click the image above to hear the irrefutable evidence that Jesus Christ is indeed God the Son, as well as the only God-ordained Savior of your immortal soul. (See, for example, Mark 16: 15-16 & Acts 4: 10 - 12)

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds: Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."

Hebrews 1: 1 - 3

O.K., let’s go over a few of them. Now, before we do, just remember two things. First, God’s Word the Bible tells us that sin is the transgression of God’s Law. (1st John 3: 4) Second, that there is a spiritual dimension to God’s Laws. In other words, just because you’ve never actually killed anyone doesn’t mean you haven’t committed murder in God’s sight.  

In this sermon, Pastor Schwertley covers many aspects of the question, as he compiles a mountain of evidence to help prove his case in the affirmative. 

Now, aside from recommending this important two-part series for  attentive listening, I would say that the best and easiest way to come to the realization that Jesus Christ is indeed God… is simply to get yourself a copy of a GIANT PRINT King James Bible (the version of the Bible hated and feared by Roman Catholic theologians and liberal “Protestant” denominations)… and then start reading the entire New Testament. 

Now, I own several copies of the King James Bible. And as I flip through my oldest copy, I marvel at how often, in the past, I have scribbled in ink, writ large, across the pages and next to certain passages… 

Jesus God! ... Jesus God! ... Jesus God!

To be continued. But, in the meantime, just click the links below to listen to this important sermon series on the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

  • Why believing that Jesus Christ is God is THE single most important realization you will ever come to.

The Satanic, soul-damning deceptions of Roman Catholicism. Click the links below to get started on your quest to coming to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The process begins with KNOWLEDGE… 

The Scriptures say precisely what good works are. Good works are only such as God has commanded in His Holy Word, and not such as without the warrant of Scripture are devised by men out of blind zeal or upon the pretense of good intention. Those who vainly worship God, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men, may have a certain zeal, but not according to knowledge. It should be evident therefore that the good and the evil are defined only by the law of God. God has given us all the guidance we need. We do not need Roman Catholic tradition; we do not need mystic visions; we do not need additional revelations. But we do need, and need sorely, a great deal of Bible study. In the Bible, and in the Bible alone, we find the rule of life.
