Sermons I Have Preached at Riverview Baptist

Well, Well (Reflections on John 4:1-29)

Jesus never baptized anyone but commanded His disciples to do so. As the number of those baptized by Jesus surpasses that of John the Baptist the Pharisees begin to worry about Christ. Who was this young Upstart who ran people out of the Temple? The Man was rocking the boat, and they didn’t like it. Continue reading

Faith Of Our Fathers

I am certainly not one to pass judgment on anyone. But I am convinced that the things of this life do not bring soul satisfying happiness. America is one of the most prosperous nations in the world. And yet suicide rates have increased nationwide over the last twenty years, and half of the states the rates are up by 30%. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for people ages 15-34. Why? Continue reading

Something Supernatural

Revelation 9:1-6And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke … Continue reading

Making Daniels – a Vacation Bible School Message

Children must be taught, and will be taught. A child will be taught respect for authority and how to be a good citizen in the land and in God’s Kingdom, or else the child will be taught that he or she is god above all. A child is taught humility or narcissism. A child will record – from its earliest days – what it is taught by you or by someone else. It is a fact that the first things learned are what the child will do as an adult. Continue reading

What Does It Mean “To Believe”?

God loves the world. He made the world, but the world walked away from God. Like a prodigal son the world took the grace of God, the good He daily bestows, and walked away from the lover of our souls. God loves this world. This is amazing not because the world is so BIG, but because the world is so BAD. God through His Son seeks to save the world. Continue reading

What Will Impress God?

When man rejects the call of God, the Lord is not impressed. What God does then is “give them over” to their delusions. God calls, but after calling if His Word is rejected finally God says “Fine. You chose this. Now sleep in the bed you have made.” This is where most of America has gone. Many come to “Church” to be pampered and petted. They want to hear sweet nothings that support their doing nothing. Continue reading

You MUST Be Born Again

Jesus is LORD! He may have taught, but He is more than a Rabbi. He is LORD. He is God incarnate, God among us, God in the flesh. He is LORD. His Words are LIFE and LIGHT. Continue reading

God Will Save Whosoever Will

Oh, Beloved, I cannot save this enough. God wishes to damn no one. God sent His Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins (Acts 10:43). Oh, what wonderful words of life! Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed (Romans 10:11). Continue reading

God Speaks To Whosoever Will

When God called Israel, Israel was not seeking God. God in love spread out His hands beseeching Israel to follow Him. And though God gave Israel life – though He miraculously saved Israel from Egypt – Israel was rebellious.

Are we any different? Continue reading

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

If Jesus came into our Fellowship Hall on Sunday would He sit down and visit with us, or go about flipping tables and running people out? If He came into our Sunday School classrooms would He be pleased at what He heard. Would He hear us talking about the Lord and salvation and things that pleased Him? If Jesus came to our Church this Sunday would He empty the collection plates out of our hands, or would He see what we were doing as honoring God? Continue reading
