" Be Ye Thankful "
  Sonny Pyles

photos/2-141858716.jpg In this short clip Sonny Pyles looks at historian Arnold Toynbee's reasons for civilized society's failures. Pyles is describing modern day America and its demise as a nation because we are a "people who have no experience of being thankful." This sermon was delivered at Black Rock Church in Butler Maryland in the early 1990's. How true are these words today.

" Romans 10:1-3 "
  Obey Ndalima

photos/2-315265258.jpg ELDER OBEY NDALIMA died on April 1st, 2009 in Kenya, Africa, less than 5 months since delivering this sermon. Pictured with his wife, Sister Mary Mwakalonge, who passed away on December 7, 2009.

Elder Obey Ndalima pastored 2 Primitive Baptist churches in Tanzania and Kenya, Africa. The Lord blessed his labors with some 400 members amongst these churches. He said in this sermon, “Light has shined in Africa.”

This sermon was delivered on November 9th, 2008, at the Vestavia Primitive Baptist church in Birmingham, Alabama where Elder Sam Bryant pastors, and where brother Obey first joined on May 16th, 2004.

This sermon starts with Brother Obey leading the church in song, singing 'Rock of Ages' in Swahili. He shares with us his earnest desire that his people of Africa would be saved from ignorance. He said, “Ignorance is a bad thing…it will put you in many bondages.” He said, “When you first see the word ‘save’ in the Bible you have to ask yourself - saved from what?” He learned that ignorance will not keep you out of heaven but keep you in darkness of unbelief.

In other words, when Paul says his heart's desire is that Israel might be saved there are 2 important questions one must ask, Who is the Israel he speaks of and What salvation is under consideration?

Brother Obey relates some of his experience at his ordination service as well as the first impressions to join the church at Vestavia.

The Lord blessed his efforts in bringing this message from Romans 10:1-3 and I hope it will be a blessing to you today.

" Home Meeting, 8/21/56 Pat Byrd & J.A.Monsees "
  Pat Byrd


Elder's Pat Byrd and J.A. Monsees were in the area attending the 1956 Annual Session of the Ketoctin Association. And while in Virginia they stopped by Baltimore and preached a home meeting. Home meetings were not uncommon amongst Old Baptist brethren. It was generally a way to introduce the Gospel to family members and neighbors. Several older church members I know were first introduced to Primitive Baptist preaching at home meetings. However we hear of fewer home meetings today. Regardless of how large the early church was considered to be, the scriptures tell us, they went "from house to house."

Elder Byrd opens with prayer and then speaks from 1 Cor. chapter 1. Then Elder Monsees speaks on the choices the children of God make using various illustrations from the Bible.

The recording is excellent and on occasion you will hear some children in the background. While these brethren are not in the formal church pulpit they nevertheless clearly taught the Bible in a way we all can understand. Preaching is preaching, in the pulpit or at home by the mantle !
