An Exposition of Psalm 20, by Pastor Bill Rhetts

Regretfully I was heavy on quotes, I repent. This psalm fits the occasion of a ‘prayer service’ or a ‘prayer and sacrifice’ on the eve of battle. Similarly, back in 1942 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, an Army Chaplain was asked to lead them into battle via a prayer. History tells us, “In the heat

When to disobey: a call to civil disobedience, by Pastor Stephen Richardson (the police response after this sermon) a MUST HEAR sermon

Pastor Stephen Richardson has been a great encouragement and example to the Lord’s Church, as how to respond to the States tyranny during the Coronavirus season(s) that we are going through. Ironically (by providence) after preaching this sermon, the police responded to investigate his compliance. “David Engelsma has said, “Uncritically to yield to the decrees

An Exposition of Psalm 19, by Pastor Bill Rhetts 🌎

The theme in this chapter is the glory of God, praise, grace, and prayer. Matthew Henry said this of Psalm 19, “There are two excellent books which the great God has published for the instruction and edification of the children of men; this psalm treats of them both, and recommends them both to our diligent

An Exposition of Psalm 18:13-19, by Pastor Bill Rhetts (part 2)

This sermon is part two of last weeks sermon (on verses 1-12). We continue this Theophany and supernatural warfare that God administered on behalf of David, and as He does for His elect.   C.H. Spurgeon said of verse 19, “He delivered me, because he delighted in me.” Free grace lies at the foundation. Rest

Listening to oldies, while hauling 20 miles out to Sea, in November

Last Tuesday (in November) I went 20 miles out to Sea from the Newport Harbor. The ocean was as smooth as a local lake. But as the winter weather arrives, those days will be over for another season. Beginning today, the weather begins its unpredictableness. Always check your BoatUS app before launching your vessel.

Video of a Reformed Baptist Pastor Evangelizing the Public 👆

Because this video was uploaded to this channel, I established a new Facebook connection with another Reformed Baptist Pastor. Similarly, like myself, he desires to connect to like-minded Heralds of the Gospel. In a personal dialog with me, he expressed his concern with the growing number of “reformed” evangelists that prefer to “get tied up

An Exposition of Psalm 18:1-12 (part 2), by Pastor Bill Rhetts

Tragically last night one of our grandkids passed. And by Gods providence, this teaching that I had prepared earlier in the week, spoke much about “death.” So, every time the Scriptures spoke about the pains (or cords) of death, it got very difficult for me. Nonetheless, as the Scriptures tell, I am thankful I was

The unexpected death of our 23-month-old grandson

These last several days have been a difficult time for my wife, myself, our children, and many family members. Our 23-month-old grandson Lake was admitted into a hospital and was listed in grave condition. Sadly, today Lake succumbed to his medical distress. I am not writing this to invite you to my pity party. Instead,

A sermon Peters Denials & Restoration, by Pastor Steve Marquedant

Today our Church was blessed to have Pastor Steve Marquedant of Sovereign Grace Reformed Baptist Church fill our pulpit. Steves sermon entitled Peters Denials & Restoration was taken out of Luke 22, as well as other passages. I thank the Lord for this exhortation, at such a time as this. Please subscribe to this fairly
