Revelation and Reception: The Activity of the Holy Spirit

10/22/2021
It is the work of the Holy Spirit to “reprove” sin, which is to expose sin and to set it right by bringing us to repentance, specifically to turn us from the sin of failing to recognizing Christ. The ability both to proclaim the word and to receive are dependent on the presence of God’s Spirit in us, and once the seed is planted it will produce change in us. We are warned not to neglect the gift we are given and not to grieve the Spirit. Acts 2 VF-2101 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

What is Acceptable to God?

10/20/2021
The Incident: Nadab and Abihu brought strange fire to the altar and as a result they were consumed by the fire of God for their disobedience. This is a lesson for us all to not substitute our own ways for God's ways, by bringing a strange fire to the altar of our commitments.

Sardis: Be Vigilant against Complacency

10/19/2021
The warning to the church at Sardis was to be vigilant in their faith and resist complacency. We too need to heed this warning and recognize that we are stewards for Christ's sake. Otherwise, we face the danger of becoming walking dead people: having the outer shell of a Christian without any spiritual life.

Issachar: There Are No Insignificants in God's Program

10/18/2021
At first glance, Issachar and his descendants seem to be overlooked in the Bible. However, careful examination shows that they were men of means, men of might, and men of understanding and discernment. As a type, they show us that no one is small or insignificant to God. He sees our hearts and our commitment, and He has called us for a purpose.

The Spirit of Jonathan: 1 Samuel

10/15/2021
Jonathan was a gift from God, a kindred spirit, and a true friend to David in a time of great need. His uncomplicated commitment to David, amidst very complicated circumstances, gives us a picture of what true Godly friendship looks like when we have it. It also encourages us to ask for the spirit of Jonathan; that we may be able to reciprocate this unconditional love in our relationships.

Building for God Is a Battle

10/14/2021
Despite the quality of his character, Nehemiah was under constant attack by enemies. They used the tricks of the devil: sending emissaries from hell or close by, egregious lies, entrapment, and emotional sabotage, but that did not deter Nehemiah from the work God sent him to do. We face the same tactics of opposition in building God’s church today, but if we keep our hands to the plow, God will get the victory.

To Know God, Not Just About Him

Smyrna: Preparation for Death

10/12/2021
Continuing to explore the modern significance of the seven churches of Asia beyond their representation as church ages, we consider the church in Smyrna. Despite the crushing pressure and destitution, this church was spiritually rich. As with myrrh, Smyrna pertains to preparation for death. Christ, who died and is alive again, encourages us with the promise of resurrection: if we are faithful unto death, we are promised a victor’s crown and to not suffer the second death in the lake of fire....

Put God's House First

10/11/2021
The house of God is designed to demonstrate His will, His day, His way and His work. The people of Nehemiah's day made a pledge of commitment to His House and yet even they fell away after time. This is a call to us today at Faith Center to renew and keep our commitments to the House of our God, putting Him first through our service and giving. We are enabled by God to keep our commitments when we abide in His Word, and when we do, He will never forsake us. VF-2008 Nehemiah 10:39 Watch,...

You Count for God

10/8/2021
When it comes to the work we are called to do for God, in frustration some may ask, “What’s the point?” Nothing God calls us to do is small in His eyes. It counts to Him. We are to be diligent and faithful in the smallest things for God, like the vigilant gatekeepers, the singers that were the spiritual vitality and the Levites (the minutia men).

The Battle for Your Soul and the Concept of Commitment

10/1/2021
There is a battle for your soul, and it is dangerous to fail to understand the enemy is always there. A target is on your back when you open your mouth and make a commitment. When our committedness or our attitude towards our commitment changes, we open up the door for the devil to pick us off. We must treat Christ as our fort, our place of resistance, and recognize that putting on the full armor of God means putting on Christ, who fortifies us from the inside. When we mess up, we need to...

Wielding the Sword of the Spirit

We are targets of the devil because of God's Spirit in us, so it is important for us to try the spirits to discern false teaching from the Word of God.
