What is the greatest example in the Bible of God keeping a promise? Working from Ezekiel Ch 20, this sermon sets out to prove that God’s ancient promise to Abraham of a nation and a land “for an everlasting possession” has still to be fulfilled, and will be so when Christ returns and sets up His millennial Kingdom. If God does not keep that promise, how can you be sure He will keep His New Covenant promises of salvation and…
Jonathan Procopio preaches on a number of the “shouts” of the Lord Jesus. “If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink”…”Lazarus come forth”…”It is finished.” But there’s going to be a “last shout”, the shout the world won’t hear.
