God's in Control

6/24/2022
God's in control. He showed that He's in control of history by His prophecies and use of a heathen king, Cyrus, and He's also in control of your life and mine. The challenge of this message is to consider our ways. Are we striving against God's purposes, talking back to the Potter and saying, “He can't with me” or, “What could I possibly do?” Or are we looking at the pattern of God's way with Cyrus and saying, “Lord, Thy will be done. If You accomplished Your purposes with Cyrus, a heathen...

God Has a Plan and You Are in It

6/23/2022
Zerubbabel was born in Babylon. He was an unlikely person to return and rebuild Jerusalem; yet he did. He was chosen by God to rebuild and preserve the bloodline to Christ.

The Arm of The LORD

6/21/2022
Why the instruction to “confess Jesus”, as read in Romans 10, is always taken out of context, and used in error to try and lead people to salvation. This first applied to the Jews in Jesus’ day who would not confess He was their Messiah for fear they would be put out of the synagogue. For those with the capacity to receive, we need only amen the report.

Wait on God: Adhere to His Word

6/17/2022
Prayers in our darkest hour, borne out of need for divine manifestation, do bear fruit. There is a progression of prayer in Isaiah 64, asking God, with boldness, to come down and to bring His presence and show Himself with power. God works the impossible for those who love and wait on Him and adhere to His Word. He will see you through when you dig in and cling to Him and His Word, get in the trench and wait there, and continue to stay by the stuff. VF-2093 Isaiah 64:4 Watch, Listen and...

Dare to be Daniel in the Modern-Day Lion's Den

6/16/2022
Daniel was a man who purposed to please God, prayed to God, and received power from God. When enemies conspired to bring the peril of the lion's den, Daniel did not shrink back, but continued in his worship to God. The life of faith is not one of cowardice; God will bring deliverance in a time of trouble when we stand on His Word in the face of our modern-day lion's den.

Hannah: A Mother's Prayer in a Dark Time

6/15/2022
Hannah is an example to all of God’s children of how to act in a dark time. In her barrenness she made a vow to God, and she kept it instead of making excuses. She earnestly prayed to the Lord and faithed to see Him answer her prayer. Our prayers are heard by the Lord; keep praying for the future of this ministry and those things that will bring Him glory. Our prayers have an effect, and God will make His will come to pass. VF-2184 1 Samuel 1-2 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

I'm Here, God. Now What?

6/13/2022
A lot of times people feel the tug of God and they understand, “Yes, God called me.” But once they come into the church they think, “I’m here, God. Now what?” Taking a page out of Abraham’s life teaches us about the life of faith: what to expect, and what to be open to and aware of as we begin making our own faith journey.

Put God First at Any Cost

6/10/2022
God tested Abraham to see if his devotion to God was stronger than his love for his son. Abraham trusted God would keep His promise, and for his obedience God provided a substitute sacrifice. This event foreshadows the ultimate sacrifice of Christ and serves as a reminder for us to look for God’s lesson in our crisis. God will test us to see what is in our hearts, to see if we will put Him above all else. VF-2328 Genesis 22:1-19 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor...

What Happened to the Ark of the Covenant?

6/9/2022
There are many theories about what happened to the Ark of the Covenant, but they are untenable and irrelevant. The Ark and the Mercy Seat that covered it were symbolic of Christ and His finished work at the cross. The physical Ark is no longer needed, because what it represented has been fulfilled.

Job: Faith Fortified in Adversity

6/8/2022
When Job was tested by God, he suffered great pain and loss. God was trying to teach him but he failed to understand the lesson, so God had to set him straight. We do not know everything that God knows; there is a purpose for what happens to us. God is greater than our circumstances and our understanding. He is over all, and He has got your back if you keep your focus on Him and trust Him. Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center...

Rahab: Never Judge a Book by Its Cover

6/7/2022
The faith of a Canaanite whore, Rahab, teaches us to never judge a book by its cover! Even though she was a pagan, she knew something about the living God that most Canaanite people probably didn’t know: He alone is able to save. Simply put, this woman had heard about the power of God and all the victories He had won for the children of Israel, and she said “I want that too!” For her simple act of faith God spared her and her entire family from destruction. That one act which typifies the...

Focus on Christ: A Nail in a Sure Place

6/6/2022
There are two types of people in God’s economy: those who serve self and those who serve God. Isaiah juxtaposes Shebna, who identified with flesh and death, with Eliakim, who put God first and whose name means “one whom God raises up.” Eliakim is a type of Christ and God fastened him as a nail in a sure place, while everything Shebna heaped upon himself was taken from him. We all need to take spiritual inventory of who we identify with and where we put our focus. VF-2324 Isaiah...

Intrinsic Evidence of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Examining the intrinsic evidence from both pre- and post-ascension records provides the bedrock of proof beyond a shadow of doubt that the Biblical record was written by men telling the truth about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Debate about the Historical Jesus Christ

5/31/2022
Do we know anything about Jesus?” “How can we know its true?” And, “How reliable are the sources?” The debate about the historical Jesus Christ gets ramped up around Easter time, and in order to answer these questions, the evidence must be analyzed. Using the criterion of early evidences from 30-70 AD, eyewitnesses and the rule of immediacy, independent attestation, lack of continuity, coherence, shameful reports, and archaeological evidence, we have the tools to reach a verdict....
