Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Annual Theme

Synopsis: As you read this chapter, you find a series of thought-provoking questions that are arranged in five groups, each one introducing new thoughts about God's character. They are designed to redirect our thoughts upward to God! To behold Him! And they are designed to arouse the conscience to form the same conclusions in our minds that God wants us to have. So what are these characteristics of God we are to behold that, when we do, we receive comfort, hope and encouragement that God will honor His Word and fulfill His promises to you?

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: New Years Messages

Synopsis: Many born-again believers know of the necessity and importance of getting into God's Word daily, but have you ever wondered, "where in the Bible does it say I have to read God's Word each day?" There may be those who think, "Isn't this just one of those man-made legalistic "rules" of the Christian life somebody came up with?" Tonight we look at a passage of Scripture that helps us see not only the necessity of spending time with God each day in His Word, but the clear benefits of doing so!

A New Year's Prayer

Scripture: Exodus 33:12–23

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: New Years Messages

Synopsis: Moses was a humble man and a hopeful man because he remained a prayerful man who lived in the reality of God. He wasn't just a religious man who "said his prayers" each night before going to sleep! From this prayer of Moses in Exodus 33 we learn important truths. He offers two requests to the Lord that are the same two requests we must take to the Lord if we are to develop the kind of relationship he had with God and if we are to correctly handle the uncertainties that lie ahead in the new year.
