" The Golden Chain of Eternal Salvation "
  Michael Gowens

photos/2-888686189.jpg This short clip is a powerful explanation of God's decree of salvation for His elect people.

Commenting on a very popular text from Romans 8:29-30, Brother Michael shows the importance of God's will in eternal salvation. This clip is from a sermon he preached in 2004 at Lexington, "Thy Will Be Done." At that time he was Pastor of Lexington PB church, Kentucky.

In the full sermon you can hear the differences between God's eternal decree's and His will regarding sanctification and providence. The full sermon was also referred to by Brother Michael as "I surrender All."

Michael Gowens is the Pastor of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Calabash, North Carolina.

" Acts 5:28-39, 01/06/94 "
  James L. Compton

photos/2-245662244.jpg Here is James Compton - who in this sermon from Acts 5 says more in 14 minutes than most others in one hour! It proves that 'brevity is the soul of wisdom' - preachers take notice!

Elder Compton was always courteous in the pulpit in two ways; keeping track of his time (because his Pastor was to preach next) and keeping to his text. He was 89 when he preached this sermon!

The sermon was preached the day after he lost his brother, Howard, who years ago worked with him at the Compton's Jewelry Store in Washington D.C.

His manner was expository. He took a text, verse by verse, and commented on the verses and used every day illustrations to enable his hearers to understand his meanings.

Watch for his comments about making visitors welcome in our churches in contrast with an attitude of preeminence. He was commenting on Theudas of whom the text says, "boasting himself to be somebody."

This is certainly vintage Elder Compton. I know when he was a younger man he was quick witted and a faster preacher, but I want you to notice he did not miss a step in his 'old age!' He always told me that an elder never retires from his duty to preach the gospel.

The only ‘problem’ with Brother Compton’s message is that it was too short! Normally he would take a good 30 minutes, but you can tell from his voice the death of his brother may have played a roll in the length of this particular sermon.

God Bless!

" Circle of God's Love - at Bethel TN, 04/30/04 "
  Vernis Stanaland

photos/2-790202823.jpg Elder Vernis Stanaland preaches this sermon at the Bethel PB church's annual meeting in Nashville.

The sermon is presented from both a doctrinal and practical Scriptural perspective. Beginning with the point that election is not a "cold and calculated decision." But unconditional election is based on God's love.

He further elaborates on this choice as being personal and individualistic. He uses various illustrations and personal analogies.

After speaking about God's love for us he then proceeds on our Love to Him as he goes full circle and brings in the Apostle Peter's experience as recorded in John 21, "Lovest thou me?"

He applies this lesson to the church at Ephesus and our churches today by asking this question, "Are we knit together in God's love?"

Wonderful message, Brother Vernis has a unique gift with his story telling. I can tell you the children gravitate toward his preaching. I played it for my 13 year old son and he loved it.

Vernis Stanaland is Pastor of Tyler Primitive Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas.
