Better to Struggle With the Fear of God’s Wrath–Luther

It is exceedingly difficult for the human heart to expect with certainty everything good of God and to appreciate all grace and mercy. Indeed, it is altogether impossible except through Christ the mediator. Coarse and impious hearts may be very strong and haughty at this point, bearing themselves hard in much conceit, and thinking that […]

God Treats Us So That We Do Not Know What He Will Do With Us–Luther.

God Treats Us So That We Do Not Know What He Will Do With Us–Luther..   I repost this because the Gospel for the 14th Sunday after Trinity is also the Gospel for thanksgiving day, and because it is so excellent. “And this is the method God employs with us all to strengthen and prove […]

Boasting Before the Devil

It would be very much in order were we to employ such arrogance when addressing the devil and say, I have God’s Word and I know that with it I have accomplished much good–some I have instructed, others I have admonished, here I have helped some with charitable gifts; I know these to be good […]

Prayer after a Deep Fall Into Sin. Gebets-Schatz

Prayer after a deep fall into sin Oh my most heartily beloved heavenly Father, whom I love with my whole heart; O You righteous judge of the world, how awfully have I, a poor sinner, sinned against You!  Oh, what have I done!  How have I so completely and shamefully forgotten your holy commandments, your […]

Pakistani Christian Sentenced to Die Under Blasphemy Law

A Pakistani Christian was recently sentenced to death for blasphemy against Muhammad. Pakistani Christians routinely have their property confiscated or destroyed, are imprisoned or sentenced to death on the basis of Pakistan’s blasphemy law which makes it a crime to say anything negative about Muhammad or the Quran. I’m grateful for the freedom of speech […]

“WWJD” Products Need Government Regulation

http://thefatguy.com/short-sunday-sermon/comment-page-1/#comment-598182 When I was a pretty new pastor, I told Sunday morning bible class that I thought one day I would go to a Christian bookstore with a whip and start flipping over tables. My recollection is that was the Sunday I lost two regular bible class attenders that had been faithful in the previous pastor’s class. Would you […]

The Benefits of Persecution–Luther

14. Hence, people have here an example where they are to seek their comfort and help, not in the world; they are not to guard the wisdom and power of men, but Christ himself and him alone; they are to cleave to him and depend on him in every need with all faithfulness and confidence […]

Consolation in Persecution–Luther

13. Now it is the consolation of Christians, and especially of preachers, to be sure and ponder well that when they present and preach Christ, that they must suffer persecution, and nothing can prevent it; and that it is a very good sign of the preaching being truly Christian, when they are thus persecuted, especially […]

Distress Because of Christ: Luther’s Sermon on Epiphany 4

Fourth Sunday after Epiphany; Matthew 8:23-27 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we […]

Many are offended because of these things.

“The Church is hidden under Jesus’ stripes. Hidden under weakness, suffering, persecution, division, and false teaching. Many are offended because of these things. They don’t see this as the way of the cross. What they see going on in the Lutheran churches causes them to leave. They will argue that the true Church doesn’t exist.

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod Must Repent And Die (If She Is Going to Live)

Reblogged from The First Premise: The Church in every generation preaches one thing: the wisdom of the cross. She comes proclaiming a message of death and resurrection. Her life’s blood is repentance and renewed faith in Christ’s saving work for His people. Her watchword is reform. The language for this is death and resurrection. Therefore, […] . . . → Read More: The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod Must Repent And Die (If She Is Going to Live) . . . → Read More: The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod Must Repent And Die (If She Is Going to Live)

Satan is raging and angry, but God is kindly disposed. Luther.

For God does not afflict the godly; He permits the devil to do this, as we see in the case of Job, whose children are killed by fire and his cattle by storms, not because God was angry with him, but because Satan was.   Therefore when a plague and other misfortunes assail us, we, […] . . . → Read More: Satan is raging and angry, but God is kindly disposed.
