Comment to those looking at my sermons: be prepared to study!! love of deep studies. I try to project information that will be helpful to the ones who will read these sermons.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Too busy about the wrong things. Gave this in a church in Santa Anna, Texas. was amazed at the results it created. after I left and returned home the wednesday people had gathered with the Sunday comers and shared notes and the whole church studied the notes taken for over two weeks and the pastor called me at home and said anytime I was there please come and speak again. He really enjoyed what God had started in his church and had never seen that before.
One of my favorite illustrations: Jesus is Our Example
Jesus was a man of prayer. Most often he prayed alone, and the supernatural permeated the natural. The heavens opened, and the will of God was revealed as the natural was changed into the supernatural, and the Father was glorified. Obviously, the disciples recognized prayer as the source of His power. Miracles were not new to them. Their heroes of faith – the Old Testament prophets performed the same miracles Jesus was performing. They asked the Master to teach them to pray!
To know how Jesus prayed we have to review His teachings on prayer. I believe that in every circumstance He waited on the counsel of the Father. I can imagine them talking about upcoming events and the steps that Jesus would take because He did nothing except the Father directed Him. He stayed in the prayerful presence of the Father, sometimes all night, until He heard from heaven. Jesus said what the Father told Him to say. He must have approached the Father as a little child humbly and expectantly. He asked the Father for what He needed, and He received it with great joy (John 16:24). The Holy Spirit was His ever-present helper and comforter.

What my parents think of my sermons: I believe they are great. I enjoy everyone of them. Some are a bit long. He is on fire for God and loves his work. I always expect to be fed and if not get frustrated and thats the truth. That is what I go there for is to be fed.
Blessings to all,
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I enjoy his sermons, filled with a lot of useful information. I feel like in some of his sermons he uses too much information. hard to grasp all of it at one setting.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Always come with truth from the bible and not mans way of thinking. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in the word.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Read the bible from front cover to back cover and pray diligently everyday. Always prepare oneself an altar and let not dust cover it. Always be preparing to meet thy God. and don’t forget your manners. Always use your Talith (Prayer Cloth) daily.
