    Ezekiel's vision of what is taking place in Jerusalem continues and God declares that the positive preachers among them are wrong! The crisis would not soon be over!

    A "paradox" is defined as a seemingly self-contradictory declaration but is in fact true. There are several interesting paradoxes found in the Bible.

    Intro: The Bible is a unique and strange Book. It is very different from any other “sacred book” of other religions. The Bible contains “God’s thoughts” which are strange and yet marvelous spiritual teachings. Among them are paradoxes. A Paradox is defined as a seemingly self-contradictory ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,746 views

    Even though God is omnipotent, God allows Himself to be hurt. In this sermon, Jeremiah speaks of the irony of substituting the inadequate for the Omnipotent.

    Sometimes, even when a pastor is as true to God’s Word as possible and has preached a number of sermons to the text that have elucidated the Truth, God’s Holy Spirit comes back to that same pastor and causes something new to be eliminated, something passed over in previous readings and study. ...read more

    Mt. 2:1-12 ”Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign” I want to begin by asking a question. How many wise men were there? Anybody venture a guess? We typically say three, don’t we? The truth is we don’t know exactly how many there were. But we tend to say three because there were three gifts that ...read more
