Temptations/Tribulations/ Trials/Testings

Randy McCarthy

Brother Randy opened services speaking again from Mark Chapter 4 concerning the four parables spoken by Jesus in verses 1-34; he pointed out that the last three parables add to and expand upon the first one (The Parable of the Sower).

“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”

Allen Daniels

Brother Allen tied his message to Brother Randy’s by making reference to Mark 4:18-19 (the seeds which were sown among thorns) and continued speaking about the temptations/tribulations/trials/testings which we encounter in this life as we strive to enter into the Kingdom of God.
