Sermons I Have Preached at Riverview Baptist

Wells Without Water

The Apostle Peter – under the inspiration of God the Holy Spirit – takes a complete chapter in this small 3 chapter epistle to discuss and condemn false prophets. Continue reading

The Judgement Is God’s

Last Wednesday we started studying through the Book of Deuteronomy. The name “Deuteronomy” does not come from the Book itself (such as 1 & 2 Peter were written by Peter the Apostle) but from what it is. Deuteronomy means “second law”. The first giving of the Law to God’s Israel was when they left Egypt, and God wrote Exodus through Moses. Continue reading

Doctrine of Reconciliation

Sin is to like the things that God dislikes, and to dislike the things that God likes. Sin is to be in opposition to God. Continue reading

Jesus Is No Myth

The lost soul mocks our faith because they do not want to come to the light. Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (John 3:19). The unconverted sinner enjoys the sin they are in, so much so that many ignore the truth of God and the truth of the Cross. The lost many times will mock our faith. Continue reading

Eleven Days From Destiny

God’s people are people of purpose. God never saves a person then ignores that person, or allows that person to ignore Him.

God not only saves His people from – but He saves them to.

God saves His people from condemnation, from death, from slavery, from Satan, from defeat and despair, and from hellfire. God also saves His people to glorify Him, to tell others about Him, to win the land for Him, and most importantly to be like Him. Continue reading

Pride And Worry Go Away

I particularly want to be near God not just on the mountaintops of life, but also in the valleys. No one knows what tomorrow may bring. The weatherman can give a good guess as to whether it will be rainy or sunny, but only God knows if tomorrow that day will be happy and bright or gloomy and overcast. Continue reading

Faith Changes Things

If you were to read this Epistle and not know that Peter was a fisherman then you would think that this was written by someone with a great deal of education. You would expect this person to have an alphabet of letters following his name. Peter had no seminary training, but he was surrendered to God in all that he did. Continue reading

The Christmas Story Part 3

Jesus is in the lowest place He can be so that the lowest and least among us can reach Him. Later wise men shall bring Him gold, frankincense, and myrrh. But now God brings Him the shepherds. He will bring Jesus to you as well – if you but receive Him. Continue reading

Unto The Hills

Our God does not get distracted. He watches over His Children. He never leaves us nor forsakes us. The Psalmist says that “He that keepeth Israel (His people) shall NEITHER slumber nor sleep”. The word “slumber” means “to daydream, to doze off”. The Lord never takes His eye off of His Child. Continue reading

She Could Waterski, But She Couldn’t Swim

This tribute to Carolyn says so very much, and it’s a perfect description of that which we call “Faith”. The Scripture defines “faith” this way:

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Continue reading
