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.

Salvation – Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

Brother Allen spoke about the importance of reading the Bible in context, giving several examples of salvation in the Bible and explaining why we cannot assume that every mention of salvation is referring to an eternal salvation.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee.”

Darkness & Light / Chaos & Order
