JSEM 2008

Sermons from Jeil Sungdo Presbyterian Church's English Ministry located in Seoul, Korea. Led by Pastor Christian Lee.

The Freedom of God in Unconditional Election

Sun, December 21, 2008

JSEM Sunday Service
Speaker: Christian Lee
Passage: Romans 9:10-13
Pastor Christian preaches the fourth installment in the TULIP series on the Reformed doctrines of grace. He covers unconditional election, that God elects men unto salvation based on His will and not based on what God foresees man do. This sermon was unfortunately cut short at the halfway mark due to technical difficulties. We apologize for the incovenience.

The Tongue Talking Church

Sun, December 14, 2008

JSEM Sunday Service
Speaker: Christian Lee
Passage: Acts 2:1-4

Pastor Christian preaches on the gift of tongues for the first time on a JSEM Sunday Service. Can people handle this message on primetime? Whether people are ready or not, Pastor Christian senses that we will see more and more pastors preaching this message at this hour. The mp3 file includes segments of anointed prayer time as well where you get a glimpse of the Tongue Talking Church.

“The more water we drink, the healthier we are physically. By the same token, the more of the Holy Spirit we "drink," the healthier we are spiritually... Unfortunately, there are many Christian believers as well who have rarely if ever experienced their hearts flowing wth "rivers of living water." Their sense of thirst has been dulled either by ignorance of the Holy Spirit or by doctrines or teachings that insist that the gifts and fullness of the Holy Spirit are not available for believers today... We need to "drink" of the Spirit every day. Jesus did not promise us a glass of water if we came to Him, but rivers of living water... Speaking in tongues is one of the best tools available to us for drinking of the Spirit. It helps us become clear and open "tributaries" for the rivers of living water." (Mahesh Chavda, "The Hidden Power of Speaking in Tongues", p. 74-75)

Irresistible Grace

Sun, December 7, 2008

JSEM Sunday Service
Speaker: Christian Lee
Passage: Romans 9:15-23

Pastor Christian preaches on Irresistible Grace, the I in the TULIP acrostic.

Was Arminius' definition of prevenient grace biblical or is God's inward call unto salvation irresistible?

“Sufficient grace must necessarily be laid down; yet this sufficient grace, through the fault of him to whom it is granted, does not [always] obtain its effect.” - Arminius

Total Depravity

Sun, November 30, 2008

JSEM Sunday Service
Speaker: Christian Lee
Passage: Romans 3:10-12

Pastor Christian continues his preaching on Reformed Theology by going to the root of the most historically controversial point in the TULIP acrostic: Total Depravity. How bad is man's fallen state? Does he have the ability (or free will) to do whatever he wishes with the gospel offer? Can he freely reject or accept it? What were the effects of Adam's sin (the doctrine of Original Sin)?

“It was by the evil use of his free will that man destroyed both it and himself.” - Augustine

Who Did Christ Die For?

Sun, November 23, 2008

JSEM Sunday Service
Speaker: Christian Lee
Passage: Matthew 20:28

Pastor Christian presents the meaty and controversial doctrine of "Limited Atonement" (aka Definitive Redemption) by looking at the Arminian and Calvinist views and then preaches for the Reformed position. He challenges the congregation to begin digging away at it in order to see what the Bible says because he argues that this doctrine is an essential one on which the saints will stand through times of hardship, persecution, and tribulation.

“…would we really want to give to the devil the right to determine our spiritual menu by refusing to eat any teaching over which he can cause controversy?” (pg. 122, Piper, “Pleasures of God”)
