  1. Mr. Ross, with all due respect, you do realize that this sermon consisted of a massive amount of blasphemy and heresy…right? You had God taking His own name in vain, you talked about Abraham's penis multiples of minutes more than you ever mentioned Jesus. Oh, you actually said that if Abraham had killed Isaac and God brought him back to life, that Jesus and Isaac would be EQUALS! You said it would be "for God and Abraham so loved the world…" Can you explain to me how that's NOT heresy? You spoke of the Devil, the audience, "tests", yourself, male genitalia, just about anything and everything, more than you spoke about Jesus…and you didn't really mention the Gospel once…not really. You gave God an effeminate, unsure, silly voice and demeanor. You actually tried to make it appear that Abraham tricked Isaac into being tied up…and since this passage directly relates to the sacrifice of Jesus, you're saying that Jesus was tricked by God. You may not know this, but James 3:1 says, "Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness." Sir, I would ask, and pray, that you back away from the pulpit, and dive into your Bible. You desperately need to learn what's in there…I fear for your eternity. The Jesus that you (barely) presented in this sermon (and I'd assume this is the same in your entire catalog) is NOT the Jesus of the Bible. Salvation is repent and believe. If you're not believing in the Jesus of the Bible…you're as lost as anyone that's flat out rejected Him. Please take this to heart.

  2. Another thing I saw myself, after reading and listening about three times, was/is that even the servants (those that walk with us or serve us in any capacity) must have a relationship with God or trust Abraham enough to not stop him from taking his test.

    Sometimes those around us will try to stop us from doing what God told us because they didn't hear Him for us so they don't think it's the Lord, they just think we're crazy.

    I asked myself a personal question: Are those walking with me, working alongside me, or serving me trusting God, too? Then, too, is how I'm living causing them to want to trust God themselves?

    This series has caused me to go back and review each teaching from start to finish just to "see" things more deeply in/through The Word Of God!

  3. Am I the only one who has a problem with this interpretation of why God sent the angel to stop Abraham? It somehow makes God so shallow. I mean God only stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son because Yah did not want an equal… Abraham would've sacrificed his only begotten Son for God not the world. Abraham had enough faith to understand that God could bring His son back to life.

    I don't know, it just doesn't sound like God's character. I've heard this interpretation from pastors quite a few times and each time I'm puzzled by how God's love did not get interpreted, instead a selfish humanly interpretation is given.

  4. 2 Timothy 4:3-4

    3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

    Matthew 7:13-23

    13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. 15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them. 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

  5. Thank you Pastor Micheal your messages have literally transformed my life and faith on a deeper level. I feel like this series was made specifically for me.

    Todays message touched a part of my heart that needed it most.

    I am walking in faith and passing all the test thanks to all these amazing teaching that are building me up.

    I pray god continue to bless you and your church and all the guest as your light continues to strengthen and teach.

    Thank you

  6. I LOVED Training Faith! Thank you for this message and you delivered it so clearly….you painted the picture of this message. I never thought how God wouldn't let him kill his son then it would have been 2…that hit me so clearly. God Bless You!

  7. I remember years ago when I went to church at The Potters House & Pastor Tim led The Brickhouse. It’s SO CRAZY that years later, I get to experience another sermon by him. So good! This is literally the fuel that I needed. Praise Jesus! And Thank you, Pastor Tim~!
