An Anchor for the Soul, Part 2

Scripture: Psalm 118:6

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: This message covers the last two statements of Psalm 118:6 which grow out of the conviction expressed by the first statement in v. 6. There is a cause/effect relationship here. Once we embrace the first truth, we can enjoy and employ the perspectives found in the second and third statements the Psalmist declares. What is said has nothing to do with having a certain personality type enabling one to enjoy what is said. It has everything to do with taking what God says at face value and living in the reality of it. When we do, this verse tells us what that looks like in life.

In the Eye of the Storm

Scripture: Nahum 1:3–7

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: All eyes are upon Hurricane Dorian as it slams into the Bahamas with sustained winds at 185 mph - a strong Category 5 storm. Storms naturally carry a lot of uncertainties and with them the temptations to worry and fear--whether those storms are meteorological in nature or circumstantial. During these times it is good for us to fill our minds with the certainties of God's nature, character and work. Doing so, we can know the calm that is to be found "in the eye of the storm."

An Anchor for the Soul, Part 1

Scripture: Psalm 118:6

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: Psalm 118:6 is one of those verses that can function as "An Anchor for The Soul," for one’s life. It’s a stabilizing & securing truth; it's a great text to quote to one’s self when going through times of distress as the psalmist did & to receive assurance as he did. There are three truths about our God that I want us to notice in this text. This morning's message presents the first one: the LORD is my constant Companion.

Scripture: Jeremiah 17:7–14

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: In part 2 of this message, we look at the second kind of person that has a second kind of faith - the blessed man who expresses true faith.

Two Kinds of Faith: True/False, Part 1

Scripture: Jeremiah 17:5–10

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: Hard to believe the summer is almost over and schools are open and others are about to be! Soon students will be taking quizzes to evaluate their progress in learning. Quizzes with true/false questions are often the more preferred type of evaluation due to its easiness and simplicity. Jeremiah 17:5-10 presents two types of people that operate with two types of faith--True/False. That raises two necessary and important questions: How does one know which person God considers him to be and how does he know if he has true or false faith? In part one of this message, we look at the first kind of person who expresses the kind of faith that operates under God's curse. Do you express these three characteristics that Jeremiah mentions that are the stated condition of those under God's curse?
