Well folks as is the case in life, little has been static for me since my last post back in December.
Since then I’ve had to buy a new (used) car, moved from NC back to FL, am taking my SEBTS classes online (though still in the same program at this point), and looking at moving back to NC for the fall term.
Many of you will already know this, but some may not so I will post it here as well: I am currently the substitute preacher for Lakeview Fellowship Church . Its a position I am enjoying immensely. The more time you spend in the word, the more rewarding that time is for me, and this has certainly challenged me to spend more time in the word!
I’ve been preaching through Elijah lately (we have maybe one or two sermons left in Elijah before we move on), and before that out of Ephesians. Which has had me thinking a lot about the wrath of God! Ephesians 2:2-3 says ” And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.” (Ephesians 2:1-3, ESV)
The scripture knowledge commentary says of Psalms 90, that we cannot fully know this side of eternity the length and breadth and width of God’s anger against sin. But we can know for sure that it is greater than the sum of all our fears.
In that vein, I have a short video from Vaudie Baucham, a pastor in Texas, who warns against the sissification of Christ, and balances our mushy milk toast view of Christ with a moment or two’s exposition of the wrath of God. Its well worth watching!

“The problem is me… The problem is I start with me as the measure of all things… The problem is I judge God based on how well he carries out my agenda for the world.” ~Voddie Baucham
This video is well worth watching. Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? Watch Voddie give a solid answer.by admin with no comments yet
