Is Your Life Like a “White Washed Tombstone” — Pretty Outside but Dead Inside?

8/20/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: Followers of Jesus are called to live righteous lives, as we are instructed by the Psalmist in Psalms 37:39: “The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.”. Also, Paul tells us in Romans 1:17: “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’”. A righteousness, that comes from being in communion with the Holy Spirit, is not like “white washed...

Jesus Great Commission to You: “Go, and Make Disciples” — Not Decisions

8/19/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: God said go and make disciples not decisions. In Jesus’ last instructions to His Apostles, and to us, before His Ascension to Heaven from Earth is in Mathew 28:16-20, which is Jesus’ Great Commission: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you....

Are You a Part of What God Is Doing in Our World?

8/18/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: Can you tell what God is up to in our world, in our time, in our church, and in America? Are you a part of what God is doing in the world today, or you we just reacting to what God is doing – thereby, creating conflict and division? In Psalms 105:4-5, we are reminded of God’s power in the world if we do seek His presence in our lives: “Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments...

This is the way; Walk in It

8/17/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: In Isaiah 30:21, Isaiah tells us: “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.”. We know from the New Testament that Christians are given the Holy Spirit to walk with them — “a word {voice} behind you“. Since the Holy Spirit takes up residence in us, the way the Lord speaks to us is through the inward witness of the Holy Spirit — the Spirit will speak, and you will know that it is...

We Can Know God, Personally

8/16/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: There is a difference in knowing about someone and really knowing them. The New Covenant, which permits us to know the Lord in a personal way and not just to now about the Lord, was fulfilled in Jesus the Christ. In Romans 8:26, Paul tells us that the pathway for knowing God personally is through our prayers; and the Holy Spirit is with us to help us with our prayers: “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the...

Jesus Is The Gate

8/15/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: In John 14:6, Jesus says: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one come to the Father but through me.”. In Luke 13:23-25, Jesus is asked a pivotal question; and Jesus responded: “And someone said to him, ‘Lord, will those who are saved be few?’ And he said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the master of the house has risen and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to...

What Are the “Delights” {Focus} of Your Heart?

8/14/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: As the Psalmist tells us in Psalms 37:4: “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”. Delighting yourself in the Lord does not mean a new car if you so desire. It does mean that if we are delighting in our relationship with the Lord, it will be His desires that fill our heart with His will for us. As we are told in Deuteronomy 30:9-10: “The LORD your God will make you abundantly prosperous in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your...

Jesus, Who Is Without Sin, Took on Our Sin

8/13/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: When, on the cross, Jesus cried out: “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46,b), it was the only time, in all eternity, that Jesus had been separated from God the Father. Jesus had always known perfect fellowship with the Father; but when He took on all our sin, His fellowship with God was broken. God, the Father, had forsaken Jesus because God cannot have anything to do with sin. Paul, in Romans 5:15, summarizes Jesus’ sacrifice and the resulting gift of...

Your Certainty of Earthly Death is 100%, But God’s Grace Gives You a Choice

8/12/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: Your certainty of Earthly death is 100%. However, God’s Grace, through the death of Jesus and His resurrection, has given you a choice – Eternal life through your faith and acceptance of Jesus and your Lord and Savior, or not. After the Easter Resurrection, Jesus rose from the dead to live so that we might live and not die an eternal death. Our eternal life comes from our acceptance of and belief in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, but He will never force Himself on us —...

The Excitement of a New Follower of Jesus!!!

8/11/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: Those of us who have been brought up in the church or have been in the church for a while can get caught up in our personal righteousness. We get used to the presence of God and His peace in our lives. However, we then encounter a new follower of Jesus. This new Christian, before their conversion, were living in the ways of the world without God’s peace. Now, these new believers are so excited with their new life; and their outward manifestation of their conversion may not...

God Wants to Meet You Where You Are Today

8/10/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The Lord wants to bring His grace and His peace into our lives. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and God’s “New Covenant” with us, He can make us whole again. Jesus can bring His peace and His joy into our lives. Why will some, who have separated themselves from the Lord, not seek Him? Jesus tells us that if we return to Him that He will return to us – no matter where we are. Also, the Lord tells us in Isaiah 44:22: “I have blotted out your transgressions like a...

We Pray to a Single Triune Being – God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit

8/9/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: As Paul writes in Ephesians 4:1-6: “There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.”. God IS Father, IS Son and IS Holy Spirit. Jesus told the crowd in the Temple; and He tells us, as it is recorded for us now by the Apostle John, in John...

You Cannot Pray in Your Pride

8/8/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We are all sinners, and we only are only able to be saved from eternal death by God’ mercy and Grace. Our prideful self-sufficiency will prevent us from entering God’s throne room. We able to come to God because of His mercy. As Paul tells us in Romans 8:26: “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” Also, in Mark 7:20-23, Jesus provides His...

What Are Your Life Preferences?

8/7/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We need to submit our life preferences to the God. By submitting our life preferences to the Lord, He can help us to understand the life path that our preferences will lead. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 9:24, tells us that our Life Preferences need an overarching focus: “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.”. Life preferences are not necessarily sins, but they can close doors on our life. In Matthew...

Jesus Heals Your Brokenness

8/6/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: From all the brokenness of the human family, it is in Jesus that all the needed healing can and will take place. Repent; change; and do what is right. When people are right with the Lord, there is generational healing. How can a father, who is not right with God, make things right with His son? It is distressing when men, professing to be Christians and to be “right with God”, ignore their families. Part of what the Lord does for us is reconciliation, redemption, and...

Becoming God’s Treasure

8/5/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: God is making us into pearls of great value. However, some of us are upset about our life difficulties or issues in our relationships. We need to allow the Lord to use our life circumstances; and if we are obedient and submissive to Him, the Lord will turn our situations into a life of beauty. Alternatively, when we encounter these negative situations in our lives, we can become bitter. On the other hand, we can submit and obey the Lord, thereby, permitting the Lord to...

Are You on the Road to Personal Destruction?

8/4/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: God has told us that we are His children and citizens of Heaven. God has given us the Holy Spirit as a pledge of our inheritance as His children. Also, God gave us the Holy Spirit provide us with the power to live Spiritual lives. However, far too many of us continue to live and to act as “enemies of the Cross of Christ” by having our mind focused on earthly things and our belly as the lord of our life. If this picture of life actions and focus describes you, then you very...

As Followers of Jesus, We Are “In Christ” — God Looks at Us and Sees Jesus in Us

8/3/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: As Followers of Jesus, we are “In Christ” — God looks at us and sees Jesus in us. Throughout the Epistles we find: “In Christ” or “In Him“. In Galatians 3:14, Paul tells us that our faith in Jesus makes us “In Christ” and recipients of God’s Covenant with Abraham: “so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.”. Also, Paul goes even further, in Galatians 3:25-28, to tell us that,...

Sooner than Later You Will Need Direction from God

8/2/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: There are times when we need clarity, understanding, knowledge and insights from the Lord about the specific issues that we are facing. The Lord will speak to us, but sometimes it takes our listening and fasting to hear Him. For example, when Joel received a Word when the land was to be destroyed, he called a fast (i.e. Joel 1:14): “Consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry...

Are You Ready for God’s Judgement?

8/1/2018

MESSAGE SUMMARY: The Prophet Isaiah, in Isaiah 2:4, tells us that: “He {God} shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”. From this passage, we learn that the Messiah would not only teach the law of God; but, also, He would come to judge. As expressed in 2 Timothy 4:1: “I charge you in...
