it’s discontinued about two minutes after watching or listening; so could some technichitians do something about it. Thanks.
Hi David. Sorry you encountered problems with the sermon recordings. We’ve checked the files and everything seems to be okay. You might need to refresh the page and try again.
January 29th 2018
Today I came back and restarted it again. It had the same problems. It started normally at 9:46am then stoped at 9:47, and I waited up to 6 minutes! The librarian helped me to find the problem here but none could be found.
Then I restarted again, I worked for 4 minutes, then stoped more than 8 minutes, yet still not be backed.
So please communicate to me in writing: is it in verse 10: “He has delivered us from such the deadly peril, and he will deliver us again…” (of 2 Corinthians, chapter 1) saying that our God the Lord finally still delivers them JUST THE MATTER OF TIME or something else?
Yours in Jesus the Lord.
Hi David Van Hung Le,
Thanks for the question about verse 10. Apologies it has taken me sometime to respond. No excuse.
Your question, if I reword it for clarification – in 2 Cor 1:10 Paul says ‘He (God) has delivered us (Paul and Timothy c.f. 1:1) from such deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us…’ Is that just a matter of time (till he delivers them finally) or something else?
Great question. Short answer is that it is a matter of time until God finally delivers them – and delivers them (and us) once and for all. Longer answer: one of the amazing things here is the all encompassing nature of God’s deliverance – you can see that his deliverance has happened in the past (even from times of deadly peril throughout the province of Asia – c.f. 1:8-10), in the present and future as God will continue to deliver them. The comfort in this passage is that even though there is suffering, something that may be beyond what they can humanly bear (c.f. 1:8), that God is there to comfort and sustain them through all the troubles (c.f. 1:3-4) and even if that means comforting them right into death, then so be it – as it was for Jesus himself (c.f. 1:5-7).
One of the things I love about the gospel of Jesus, is that even suffering and death can not take away the hope found in the gospel.
Hope that answers your question.
Hi David. There are a few other ways you could try listening to the whole sermon.
1. You can download the MP3 audio file: https://f001.backblazeb2.com/file/trinitycity/sermons/2018/20180121.mp3

Hopefully one of those methods will work better for you!
Finally I can watch it through Chrome. I appreciate so much for your teaching. It is very hard for me to read that text of Corinthians before. Now I can have that very good application from your teaching that I should LOOK UP TO THE HIGHER ROCK or at THE LORD JESUS or at him WHO RAISED THE DEAD. thanks.
Hi David. We’re glad you were able to watch the sermon video, and that you found it helpful!
