" The Rose - 06/19/2005 New Hope Ch, Winter Garden "
  Glenn Blanchard

photos/2-739982494.jpg The popular acronym, TULIP, which represents the Doctrines of Grace, features 5 points teaching the basics of Biblical doctrine. The format was originally produced to answer the Five Articles of Remonstrance, which became known as Arminianism. They were based on the views of Dutch Reformed theologian Jacobus Arminius (1560–1609) who was a known contributor.

Today, we are happy to present a practical doctrinal acronym by Elder Glenn Blanchard, The ROSE! If you have listened to brother Glenn before you will immediately recognize his light hearted way in presenting Bible truth.

From a sermon entitled, "The Importance of Doctrine," Glenn Blanchard first presents the Doctrines of Grace. The last half of his message then turns to featuring a new presentation on practical doctrines which should flow out of the Doctrines of Grace in the lives of God's children. Now known as the ROSE.


While this is a Featured Audio Clip, the entire message is now available. Search Brother Blanchard's sermons for the following: Importance of Doctrine - Tulip & Rose

I hope you share this message as it will remind us of the application of truth in practical ways to remember.

" At the 195th Ketocton Association "
  H.P. Copeland

photos/808629233.JPG We guesstimate this sermon was delivered around 1961. Elder Copeland was a widely respected minister of his time. Note the following historical fact concerning his funeral.

"Both Elder and Sister Copeland were killed on a rain-slick highway in Cullman County, Ala., September 18, 1964. Over two thousand people attended their double funeral held September 20, 1964, at Rocky Mount Church, and at which Elders C. M. Mills, A. B. Hall, W. O. Hunt, J. B. Watts and Lasserre Bradley, Jr., officiated."

I believe there was great respect for the ministers and their messages in those days. People today are much more independent thinkers and more or less pick and choose their theology, like eating at a food buffet table. But our forefathers were systematic theologians, that is they had a system of belief that very much was held together by a coherent truth working together. I am afraid the modern church lacks a system of belief when it comes to the Bible.

You will notice in this sermon, as typical of the ministers in that era, they were unapologetic for what they believed and yet, they were not egotistical but wholly leaned on the Bible and the Living Word, Christ. He says, “The church leans on Christ, she is not independent.” Neither did he buy into the idea that the church was antiquated and insufficient for the modern age.

You will like the references to the up and coming space and missile programs and his giving testimony that our Lord was using space travel a long time ago, with out a vehicle!

Also, in this sermon, you will hear references made to a popular teaching of ministers of yesteryear, “Infant Salvation.” He mentions Herod’s hatred for the coming Messiah enough to kill all the children, 2 years and under, in Bethlehem and in all the coasts, yet "God," he says, "made provision for them in Christ!"

This is a great recording of a sermon that very much typified the style and content of messages then. We hope you will be blessed in your personal devotions!

" Under an Oak Tree-Judges 6:11, 1996 "
  Guy Hunt

photos/2-762053624.jpg The sermon was preached while Elder Hunt was visiting the churches of the Bear Creek Association in 1996.

Elder Hunt draws from this picture found in Judges 6:11 of the Angel of the LORD which sat under an oak tree. It was hard times for the nation of Israel at that time. And Gideon began to wonder as to the impoverished conditions of his people. And the promise was given that by Gideon the people would be delivered.

Elder Hunt then speaks to the deliverances of God's children here in this world and encourages those who have been delivered from sin to now "get out from the shade" and "work in the vineyards." This is a short sermon but full of encouragement.

Elder Hunt was widely respected among the Old Baptists, was moderator of the Mt. Zion Association, and the former Governor of Alabama. Elder Hunt died on January 30, 2009. Please read more of his history in the 'Ministers' section.
