Ephesus: Losing The First Love

11/30/2020
Jesus started out telling the church of Ephesus what they were doing right. They were great on rightly dividing the Word and confronting evil. What they lost in the process was so precious that Jesus called them to repentance or have their lampstand removed. When they lost their first love, they fell. What does this mean for us today? Do we face the same trap? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

The Soul of The Church

11/23/2020
Make no mistake, the critical battle ahead is not for the nation but for the soul of the church. As an introduction to a series on the seven churches of Revelation, we examine the importance of this internal battle and the consequences of going the way of Europe. Even more than the political struggle, this is the true war of our age. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Turn From Their Wicked Ways

11/16/2020
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the people of God are called to "humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways" before seeing healing and restoration. It is true that some sin is blatant within the Body of Christ but the worst of it is subtle and far more attractive than open fleshly passions. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Heal Their Land

11/9/2020
2 Chronicles 7:14 is one of the most familiar verses in American Christendom. For many years it was the theme for the National Day of Prayer and it always gets quoted heavily each election year. What if I told you we've been applying it wrong? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Rulers, Authorities, and The Follower of Christ

11/2/2020
This is one of the most contentious and angry seasons in history. Christians are often a part of the rage especially aimed at elected officials and candidates. However, we are called to a higher standard. The Word is clear. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Filling The Vacuum

10/26/2020
Nature abhors a vacuum. This is true in the physical world and in the spiritual as well. New religions are filling the void left as the church shrinks. These new faiths are dangerous and on full display in front of us. The current election cycle shows them all too clearly. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

One Generation Away

10/19/2020
The words, "One Generation Away," have such an ominous sound to them. In these ever darkening times, this phrase is being played out before our eyes. The mistakes of ancient Israel are being repeated. If the tide is to be turned, we must act soon. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Fighting The Last War

10/12/2020
Never be surprised what can give spiritual inspiration! While reading an article on Star Wars, a truth jumped out, "Generals always start out a war fighting the last one." This isn't a new idea but the spiritual consequences cannot be ignored. History can teach us a thing or two if we are willing to hear. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

A Warning, A Rekindling, and A Shifting

10/5/2020
It's been an interesting few weeks for much of the FBM team. In our trials and downtime, the Lord has spoken to us clearly. We have had warnings, a passion has been rekindled, and a shift is coming. This episode is a cry to all who claim the name of Christ and desire to see His church triumphant for His glory! ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Something Is Missing

9/29/2020
Something is indeed missing, something important. We wring our hands and wonder why our world is going to hell right before our eyes. I assure, what's missing isn't in the world. We need to look in the mirror. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Breaking Offense

9/14/2020
Offense seems to come from everywhere. A quick read of social media proves that half of everyone on it seems to be angry about something pretty much all the time. Christians don't seem to be much different. Perhaps it shouldn't be so. (From The Jesus' Outsider Archives, Original Air Date 08-28-2017) ©2017 Mike Kerby & Jesus' Outsider Ministries

Rightly Dividing

9/8/2020
None of us (I hope) want to make errors in understanding Scripture. There should be in all followers of Christ a desire to comprehend His Word and be able to distinguish between true and false teachings. This week, we present a basic framework that will help. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Beware The Spirit of The Pharisees!

8/31/2020
Jesus told us to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees. Do you really know who they were? What was it that was so dangerous? Many people think they know but are often just scratching the surface and likely have some of the leaven themselves. It doesn't take much. Their spiritual heritage is alive and well today in many ways. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Playing With The Things of God

8/17/2020
After feeding the 4000, Jesus warned his disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod. For the Lord to bring it up, there must be a danger in both. Herod's leaven is the least discussed and yet is very common. If we see who he was and what he did, we will understand why we too must beware the Leaven of Herod. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

To Do Justice

8/10/2020
Justice is a hot button issue. Watching as events unfold and as demands grow, a simple question rises up. Is this true justice? When the Lord tells us to "Do justice and love mercy" is this what He meant? Perhaps it's time for a reset. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Living in The Real New Normal

8/3/2020
The New Normal has nothing to do with COVID-19, masks, shutdowns, or anything along those lines. The spiritual winds are shifting into some very dark places. Bibles are being burnt in Portland, churches have been shut down and threatened in California, Chicago, and New York, and a new secular religion is rising to counter the truth. Our new normal is only going to get darker. However, this may not be as bad for the church as it sounds. That depends on us. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom...

Down The Slippery Slope

7/27/2020
Okay, church, you were warned. A few years ago when the Supreme Court changed the rules, several of us warned of the path we were on being dangerous. With sex as a key component of the new religion of Woke, the slide has been faster than we thought and the new world is in the church already. It is time to take a stand yet? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

Violence, Politics, and The Follower of Christ

7/20/2020
Violence is rising again, much of it political. In the face of it and the shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh, I could not remain silent. No matter your political views, If you claim the name of Christ, this message is for you.

Serve by Night

7/13/2020
In these dark days, Psalm 134 takes on a much greater meaning. No matter where you are on any of the events this year, It's time to change our perspective and be different. We need to learn what it means to serve in the House of The Lord in the night. ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries

The Enemy's War

7/6/2020
If anyone still believes that the Church of Jesus Christ isn't at war, then their eyes are closed. The reality is that we are losing. Darkness, hatred, and sin are winning the upper hand and even seem to hold moral high ground. How can this be? Are we fighting the wrong war? ©2020 Pstr Mike Kerby and Freedom Bridge Ministries
