The Rich Man and Lazarus

12/8/2022
When Jesus cursed cities that had seen His miracles and not repented, He said that it would be worse for them than for Gentiles that had not known God. Most religions have some concept of hell and eternal punishment, but we can look directly to what Christ said. In the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, the rich man ended up in a place of separation and torment, whereas Lazarus was taken to heaven by angels. The right starting point for the Christian is not to ask how to avoid going to...

The Resurrection: Eternal Life for the Believer

12/7/2022
How did the Apostle Paul go from being an enemy of Christians to defender of the faith? There would be no benefit for an enemy of the church to lie about his conversion to the faith, to preach openly and establish churches or to give them correction. After the Resurrection Jesus appeared to Paul and chose him to herald the gospel. Paul’s deep knowledge of the word lays out the basis for our hope in the Resurrection, the promise of eternal life.

God for Our Profit, Chastens Us

12/6/2022
God chastens us as a loving parent trains and teaches a child, sometimes for correction and sometimes for prevention. It is not punishment; it is something He has to do for our benefit to conform us to the image and likeness of Christ so that we may be partakers of His holiness in eternity. There is no pleasure in chastisement, but He does it out of love, and we will come through it transformed and be displayed as His treasures in eternity.

Painting a Clearer Picture of Heaven

12/5/2022
We all die eventually, so we should want to know where we are going after death. Many people do not get excited about heaven because they do not have a picture in their mind of what it will look like, but the Bible does tell us what it will be like. The final chapters of Revelation describe new heavens and a new earth much like the earth was before the fall, restoring humankind to a sinless state and bringing us back into direct communion with God. If we faithe in Christ and want to be with...

Insight Beyond the Grave

12/2/2022
The devil wants our minds to be blinded to the reality of heaven to keep us from entering in. But there is a clear picture in the prophecies of Daniel and others of what will happen in a future time and what occurs after death. God has an everlasting kingdom, and we will stand before His throne in His presence and worship Him. The dead will wake up from their temporary sleep, either to everlasting life or shame and contempt. Our time here is preparation for eternity; all we have to do is...

Why Does the Earth Need to Be Redeemed?

12/1/2022
There are many questions we can ask about heaven, death, dying and eternity; including, "Why does the earth need to be redeemed?" The earth matters to God. The ground and everything on it was cursed with the fall and that curse must be lifted before we can reside on it in our blessed state of being risen with Christ.

Jesus Is the Firstborn of All Creation

11/29/2022
Studying the use of the Greek word prototokos, being translated “firstborn” in Colossians 1:15, we see that it is impossible to conclude that Jesus is a created being. Rather, He is the first of His kind, firstborn of all creation to be raised up from the dead. He set the pattern for those who follow Him by faith, which means we will follow after Him in that same way!

God's Promise: You Will be Changed

11/25/2022
God promises to change the believer by sealing us with a deposit of His likeness in us. It’s a slow change that happens over the course of our lifetime because it’s only a part-deposit. However, the full installment will be given to us in eternity. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 VF-2234 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center in Glendale.

The Resurrection and the Concept of Contituity

11/24/2022
Though no proof is ever enough for some people, the accounts of the Resurrection are convincing because they include details that would damage the credibility of the storytellers if they were not true. The continuity we see in Christ's nature and His relationships with His followers shows us what we will be like in eternity. We will retain many of our essential qualities, but we will be sinless and have celestial bodies, finally able to have uninterrupted communion with God in His presence....

The Hope We Have in Christ Eternally

11/23/2022
This message begins with teaching about the true time of Christ’s birth. It is not the birth of a child that makes us Christians, but the fact of His resurrection. This leads us into the prophetic Psalm 16. This psalm by David describes living in the presence of the Lord, the portion of the Lord for the believer and the position and promise we have when we follow the Lord. Heaven will not be boring; it will be a place where there are godly pleasure for evermore. Psalm 16 VF-2216 Watch,...

The Character and Personality of the Holy Spirit

11/22/2022
This message lays the foundation for understanding the dimensions of the Holy Spirit's personality. Part of His work is to enlighten our minds about spiritual things, conforming us to the image and likeness of Christ. There is a danger of grieving, extinguishing, or quenching what God is doing by willingly ignoring the conviction that comes by the Holy Spirit. He is a person; holy and eternal, just like the Father and the Son; and He cares about us, helps us, and guides us. VF-2109 Watch,...

Start Over with God

11/18/2022
Teaching on the trilogy of parables in Luke 15, focusing on the Parable of The Father. The ones that listened to Jesus tell these parables were considered the worst of the sinners. We are all prodigals having wasted the inheritance given to us - our time, money, and faith opportunities. All of us at some point have squandered that stewardship, but it's never too late to start over with God. All it takes is the right attitude of facing ourselves and turning back to the Father's house. God...

The Birthright and the Promises to Abraham's Seed

11/17/2022
God made an everlasting covenant with Abraham. He blessed him and gave him the promise of land and seed, which would go on to become a great nation. Abraham passes on his possessions and all of these promises as an inheritance to his son Isaac, and Isaac to his son Jacob/Israel. But after Jacob/Israel dies, people get confused about how this inheritance, which includes the promises of seed, land, and kings, is passed on. A careful study of the biblical record can clear up a lot of confusion,...
