Sproul

I will always remember the sermon from Pastor Sproul on the holiness of God from Isaiah 6. It was life-changing and shifted my perspective on the God who people are both terrified and fascinated with. His holiness drove me into insights on sin, justice, and grace that I was quite cognizant of but was not really challenged on to dig deeper. About eight years have passed–I still remember it.  Check out the series.  I pray that it will revive your heart: Holiness of God Series.

Now this man of God who was used to impact my life on the holiness of God is near the entrance of Heaven that far supersedes in splendor to the fictitious halls of Vahalla. As the Puritan prayers say, in Heaven,

“There is joy without sorrow,
comfort without suffering,
love without inconstancy,
rest without weariness.”

Though nowhere close to the magnitude of Moses’ departure, the passing of Dr. Sproul provides me with some small glimpse of the great mourning of Moses by the children of Israel.  The leader who led them out of the bondage of slavery was no longer with them.  Moses was there when giants and enemies roamed the ancient and frightening land.  When he went to glory,  he left a lasting legacy for the children of Israel.  A legacy that pointed the people to the eternal God.  In the 21st century for me, Dr. Sproul was a titanic figure in evangelicalism.  He was an astute reformed theological sage that helped mined systematic theology, the character of God, and the doctrine of justification for so many.  He fought vigorously for the Gospel and denounced the 1994 ecumenical document signed by leading Evangelical and Roman Catholic scholars in the United States.  He saw it as a compromise.  See more here: A Tribute to My Friend. Although he is gone, his legacy is still imprinted.

Once the tears dry-up, I pray that the memories of this slave of Christ will drive others to look to Christ whom Pastor Sproul love to point people to.

This is a guest post by Shuan Marksbury.  His blog can be found here.

Today, the term “elders” rings sour in many Baptist ears. Perhaps it seems too Presbyterian, or it may seem to authoritarian. Indeed, many SBC churches practice a model of a deacon leadership or have such a congregational government that spiritual decisions are left in the hands of those not holding (and, perhaps, unqualified for) any office.

Brother Vincent has nearly reblogged all of our posts over the past few years. I know he’s reblogged some of your blogs too.
Pray for him, his health and the hospital staff treating him.

Earlier in the week I started expierencing abdominal pain consistent with diverticulitis. My suspicions were confirmed yesterday, it is another bout of diverticulitis with a 4 centimeter abscess.

This marks the 3rd time this has happened, with a heart attack in between. Surgery is not an option at this point do to the abscess and the surgical tean cannot extract using a J.P. drain.

I won’t be exercising my awesome re-blogging skills 😎

Please pray for me and all the hospital staff treating me.

In Christ,

Vincent

Some of you who have followed Rob Barkman’s ministries on WordPress and his Youtube channel might not have heard the news that he has passed away. I was getting concerned last month about his well being from not hearing from Him. I have been blessed by his teachings online. Pray for his wife and family.

Settled In Heaven Blog

  • It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my husband, Rob, the love of my life. But, I also know and take great joy in that he is with our Lord, Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father. I cannot put into words how difficult the last several months have been. First, my mom passed in November and then Rob this past month, both from cancer. At least, neither one was in pain, thank you Lord. It is such a blessing to me to have Rob’s legacy, “Settled In Heaven.” I hope that it is a blessing to you, too, and for anyone who reads it in the future. You will still be able to read and study “Settled In Heaven” in all of the same places…SettledInHeaven.org, on WordPress, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Google+. The YouTube is especially dear to me. Thank you…

Are you going through the blues?  Is your soul despondent?  Do you have a melancholy spirit?  These are all synonomous terms for a depressed person.  Check out this book trailer concerning Lloyd-Jones below.  His treatment on this subject has had a profound impact upon many decades to come.  His treatment on the subject brought back the importance of the sufficiency of Scripture.  In day where psycho-babble is being used as the substitue for Scripture, this resource by the doctor will be helpful for the soul-seeker who needs revival in the midst of despondency.

For the first sermon, please listen to Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ sermon called, “Mind; Heart and Will.”  I found this message helpful because often we ignore that the whole entire being is needed when dealing with the blues.  If we don’t we will continue to carry a heavy load upon our shoulder. May we flee from our sin and may our mind, emotion, and will be dependent upon the Gospel which can inflame us for the holy pursuit of Christ.  Here is the link: http://www.mljtrust.org/sermons/mind-heart-and-will/

For the second sermon, please listen to Pastor Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ sermon called, “That One Sin.”  If is often easy to slide back into depression when that one sin in the past or failure gets resurrected.  Here the doctor brings biblical perspective in how to deal with the matter.  May we move forward for the prize and not look back.  Here is the link: http://www.mljtrust.org/sermons/that-one-sin/

Here are the complete messages below from the series of 24 sermons on depression that was later were compiled and edited to create a book.
