    HI Liz, Good evening. I am grateful that the message is coming across the way I intended - to make us more aware of our common Adversary. We are all equally threatened... and I need to personally remind myself of it all the time. You be safe and keep on the look out. May God's grace and peace be with you. - Jorge

    Hi Mary Jaye. Thank you for your kind comment. I thank God that He lead me and inspired me to do this sermon, as I can sincerely say this was because God led me to do so. Under normal circumstances I would have not approached this subject. He really led me. Please thank God for He leading us in His wonderful ways and Truth. In Christian love, Jorge

    Hi Mary Beth, Thank you for your note and suggestion. I went through all the sermons related to the series on the book of Matthew and I added "Matthew" and the chapter number as you suggested. Therefore if you search for my sermons with the title 'Matthew' you will now find them. Have a lovely week. Jorge

    Hi Clive. Thanks for your question. Indeed those who have been with us but have lost their commitment is very sad to us. We all deeply sorrow, feel the pain, and sincerely pray for them to repent. We just do not know for sure that their conversion was real. We don't know their hearts. So it is possible that some Church members (according to the flesh) were not really Church members (part of the true Spiritual Body of Christ). It gives us peace of mind to know that God is a righteous judge and that He does not judge according to the flesh (John 8:15-16). But that by no means justifies one that loses the commitment, nor does it imply that there is a second chance (Heb. 10:26-31). It is God who knows if they were enlightened, tasted the heavenly gift, and received God's Holy Spirit (Heb 6:4-6). I hope that answers your question. If you would like to discuss it further, please email me privately. Happy to chat to you at any time. In Christian love Jorge

    Hi Stephen. Thank you so much for the constructive points you mentioned. Indeed I should have made it clearer that 'out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks' (May 12:34) and that 'that' sin likewise proceeds from something deeper and ingrained. That is why they wanted to destroy Christ. That came from their intent, their heart. I will surely take that into consideration. Have a great Feast. In Christian love, Jorge de Campos

    Hi Cindy. Thank you for your encouraging comment. We are all frail and human and an encouraging word is always much appreciated. May God bless you and your son's understanding.

    Hi Rainie Thank you for your comment. The specific strongholds that we may have vary from one person to another, as we are different. My best suggestion to you is to first identify the weakness that you are trying to overcome. Such scriptures as Jer. 10:23-24 come to mind, and ask God to shew you, in kindness and in His mercy, what our individual area to work on is. Then based on whatever that weakness is, develop your our personal action plan. One suggestion might be, for instance when wrong thoughts may develop, is to have a planned action to change those thought patterns (Phil. 4: 8). I hope this helps you. To be more specific, one would have to get into more specific details, and if you want such further help, you should counsel with your local pastor as a starting point. In Christian love Jorge de Campos
