Thank you for uploading the sermon  by Pastor Vaughan.

Both the sermon and the song, "While the Ages Roll," were a blessing.

    • Dan, I appreciate your thoughts. All of the good things that come in our life are from God in heaven; James 1:17 God is our heavenly Father who desires to bless His children. Matthew 7:11,  says, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" The Sermon on the Mount story of the father in Matthew 7:9-11 who gave his son his desires is a testimony of the goodness of God to His children who ask Him for the desires of their heart as according to His will. Thanks!
    • The amount of times that Psalm 37:4 & 5 have been taken out of context by well-meaning bible teachers is astounding -- especially by the WOF prosperity teachers. It's not that God will give us a private jet with our own airport, or having figurines of biblical figures that cost more than some people's homes; it is all about receiving the good gifts that comes down from the Father of Lights (Jas.1:17). If we delight ourselves in the LORD, then naturally our "desires" will be in accordance with God's will (cf.Matt. 7:10); gifts such as the means to start a ministry, or our desire to bring the lost to Christ so that He may be glorified through us. God is not a "genie" . . . and I am grieved that the reason why so many people become "Christians" is, "what can God do for me? rather than what can I do for God as a living sacrifice?" God Bless!
    • It is exciting to see how in these last days the Lord is working among the Chinese people.
    • TRUE Love for the LORD is accompanied by absolute devotion and commitment. Peter's claim to love the LORD was not supported by his past actions. Peter went to the shores of Galilee to await Jesus' command to meet Him there. Fishing was their livelihood, but now Jesus demanded that their absolute devotion to Him would lead them to be fishers of men. Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him more than the fish, and Peter answered, Yes! Whenever there are two synonyms which are placed closely together in context (e.g.,"love"), and has different meanings; it is placed there for emphasis (Jn. 21:15-17).  Peter TRULY did love the LORD, and used the Greek word *phileo" instead of *agapao* because he had denied the LORD in the past and was most likely reluctant in choosing his words for that matter. Jesus knew Peter's heart . . . and knew that Peter did indeed love the LORD, but that there was a lack of absolute devotion and commitment. Jesus demands our love for Him to be sacrificial and from the heart; anything less than that is not worthy of the LORD.
      God Bless!
    • God devotion on the characteristics of love. I appreciate the following; "4. Love cannot be described.
      No words adequate enough to describe love. (“so much” as in John 3:16)
      Love is seen in action, not in words. (Calvary)." Thank you Irishman.
    • The bible says that "He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." (1 John 3:14b-15) I came across a Christian website today where "Christians" were speaking horrible things about another Christian brother because this man's children had cancer and his wife was dying. The had the audacity to say that the reason why this Christian brother's wife and child had cancer was because it MUST have been that he had sinned and that he is in hell right now. This behavior disgusted me to the core. It is a shame that such people who call themselves Christians can behave in such manner. This angers the Lord and He will NOT answer their prayers because God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble. God Bless!
    • Thanks for sharing your devotionals as they have benefited me greatly. We often don't hear or see integrity on display, even among Christians. Jesus said, "Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" And, "be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." The lack of discipline and unchristlike behavior is monumental and unprecedented in Christendom today -- which is a sign leading to the Greate Apostasy spoken of in scripture. It is almost as if "Christians" go out of their way to behave worse than the unbelieving world, and keep NOT the commandments of God out of love for Him. The Lord will separate the sheep from the goats, and the wheat from the tares at the harvest. Just keeping the commandments alone does NOT prove oneself to be a Christian; it is the outward manifestation of the inward man/woman which shows what is truly in their hearts (Matt.12 :34-37). It is our "desire" to  "please" the Lord with our obedience which is the correct beatitude attitude. Anything other than that is wood, hay, and stubble. God Bless!
    • What disturbs me is the vast amount of "Christians" who profess to *know* the Lord and live a life no different than the rest of the unbelieving world -- if not worse; and there is absolutely no disparity between the two. This is one of the reasons why so much of the unbelieving world DO NOT want to become Christians; because most people who profess to be in Christ are hypocrites. We're supposed to love one another -- even those who are behaving in an ungodly manner. We are to pray for these people so that they may repent and turn their life over to Christ as their Lord and Savior. But if the unbelieving world sees us as NO DIFFERENT than the rest of the world . . . then how is our light shining? Has the salt lost its flavor? Paul had to be knocked off of his "high horse" to realize that he was no better than the rest of the world -- even worse. The LORD had to humble him and bring him to his knees for him to realize that he, like the rest of the world, was in danger of hellfire. Stubbornness, and refusal to submit to the will of God only stunts a "Christian's" growth, and as a result, they will bring forth NO fruits and will be cast as a branch into the fire to be burned by men (cf. Jn. 15). God Bless!
    • Chinese, to me, is the most difficult language to learn in the entire world; not to mention the variety of dialects such as Mandarin, Cantonese, etc. I'm thrilled that more churches are being planted in China, and I have seen them prosper mightily in the Lord. God Bless!
