Synopsis: As God looked at the nation of Judah, He found no man who would intercede in their behalf. Why would God be appalled, astonished at the tragic neglect of prayer? This message looks at three reasons.
Synopsis: In the previous message we looked at the first way we can see the invisible God. Today's message looks at the second way--with the eye of faith. What is faith? How is it expressed? Hebrews 11 reveals the answer.
Synopsis: Where did all these heroes of the Faith in Hebrews 11, named and unnamed, get the ability to endure the hardships of life and how did they do so? Hebrews 11:27 tells us how Moses lived by faith and it presents the key for us as well. Moses saw "Him Who is invisible." How do you see Him Who is invisible? There are three ways to do so. This message presents the first of these three ways.
Synopsis: In what sense can angels be considered "sons of God?" In the Old Testament, is the expression "sons of God" always a reference to angels? Tonight we look at Job 1 and 2 and then Genesis 6:1-4 to discover the answer.
Synopsis: Our response to circumstances we face reveal what we really believe to be true about our God and the way He operates. Is He worth beholding? If so, what does that look like in life? Today's message looks at three truths in 2 Chronicles 20 that helps us understand what it means to "put your eyes on the LORD."
Synopsis: Angels fall into two broad classes: 1) Good angels or "holy angels" as Matthew calls is; angels associated with Christ, 2) evil angels, associated with the devil. Within these two classes there are subdivisions. Tonight we being looking at the different kinds of good angels.
Synopsis: Whether through words that are spoken or written, facing disrespect, contempt and hostile attacks just because we are a devoted follower of Christ, is always a very difficult thing to handle. So how do you do so?
Psalm 123 is a great help to us because the Psalmist was experiencing the very same thing! Its teaching will give you the tools you need to handle these times. One of the truths taught is the matter of what we are to behold with our eyes.
There are two key concepts that come from a picturesque image that was common in OT days that will equip to know what it means to put our eyes on the Lord and behold our God.
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?
Synopsis: Tonight our pastor shared a PowerPoint presentation that incorporates the new ministry theme for 2020 as it relates to church ministry this year. The new theme was introduced in this morning's message and expanded upon tonight. We take a brief look at the past year, where we are now, where we go from here.
Synopsis: In this text from Isaiah 40:9, our pastor introduces the new ministry theme for 2020. Its simple, short, but substantive statement is life-changing when embraced. Out of all the messages he has preached, this statement is the one message our pastor would want every born-again believer to always remember--especially during this new year! In 2020, we need a 20/20 vision of our God as He has revealed Himself in His Word!
In part one of this message, we look at an overview of the text and then the message of the text.
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!
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.
