From Fasting to Feasting, Part 1

Scripture: Zechariah 8

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Zechariah 8 presents the third and fourth answers from God to the question raised in 7:3 by Jewish envoys from Bethel. These answers present the main theme of the chapter: God delights to bless His people! This message is part 1 and deals with the expression of God's blessing. The encouragement of hope God gives in this chapter is not only for the Jews of Zechariah's day but for us in our day as well.

The Characteristics of Genuine Worship

Scripture: Zechariah 7

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Zechariah chapters 7 & 8 are linked together and form the second section of this OT prophecy. Chapter 7 begins with a question about a religious ritual that had been established and God gives four answers to the question--two in each chapter. In chapter 7 God's answers drive home the point that He wants genuine worship and that worship has two characteristics. Today's message tells us what those two characteristics are.

Scripture: Matthew 6:10

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: The Lord's Prayer

The Symbolic Crowning of Joshua

Scripture: Zechariah 6:9–15

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: Zechariah 6:9-15 is a coronation ceremony that is not part of the 8th vision but rather an event that actually happened. What is symbolic here is not the event but what the crowning of Joshua the High Priest represents. So what's the significance of all this? Not only do we discover the answer to that question but we also extract timelessly relevant truth that is just as vital for us today as it in Zechariah's day to provide much needed hope.

The Four Chariots

Scripture: Zechariah 6:1–8

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: This message takes a look at the 8th prophetic vision God gave to the prophet Zechariah. In this highly symbolic vision, there is wonderful, hope-filled, encouraging truth for every born again believer who battles discouragement or senses that what he or she does for the Lord seems futile and of little consequent effect. After identifying and interpreting the symbols in this vision, there are three truths every saved person needs to embrace and allow to motivate them in their service for the Lord.

The Flying Ephah

Scripture: Zechariah 5:5–11

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: This seventh vision (5:5-11) is paired to the previous one (5:1-4). While the sixth vision addresses how God deals with individual sinners, the seventh addresses how God deals with the principle of sin itself. The point of both is to communicate this truth: God will triumph over all evil. Sinners will be dealt with; sin and Satan do not have the final say. This challenging and sobering message is for each one of us to seriously consider as it impacts how we view life, live life and interact with others.

Hallowing God's Name, Part 1

Scripture: Matthew 6:9

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: The Lord's Prayer

Synopsis: This message looks at the very first request mentioned in what is commonly called "The Lord's Prayer." What does it mean to "hallow God's name?" What did Jesus have in mind when mentioning this? What did He want His disciples to recall to mind whenever they made this request? This message is part 1 in which our pastor takes a look at answering these questions.

The Flying Scroll

Scripture: Zechariah 5:1–4

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Zechariah: Hope in God's Unfailing Purpose

Synopsis: The two visions in Zechariah chapter five are paired just like the two visions in chapters three and four were. Together these two visions in chapter five communicate this important truth: God will triumph over evil. This message deals with the sixth vision in vv. 1-4 and addresses God's dealing with individual sinners. The timeless truth presented here contains an urgent message for each of us to receive.

God of Heaven, Part 2

Scripture: Matthew 6:9

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: The Lord's Prayer

Synopsis: Tonight's message is part 2 and completes last week's message from Matthew 6:9 in which our pastor answers the question, "Why did Jesus append the words, "which art in Heaven" to "our Father?" What's the message being communicated and what did Jesus want His disciples to understand by that? What were they acknowledging? How does that truth affect our praying as well as the way we view life and live life? Four practical truths are suggested in tonight's message.

When Towers Fall and People Perish

Scripture: Luke 13:1–5

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Anniversary of 9/11

Synopsis: On this 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2021, our minds are directed to the memory of all who were lost on that day as well as to honoring all our first responders and military personnel who have sacrificed their lives to save others and defend freedom. Our text in Luke 13:1-5 is a chilling look at how Jesus dealt with the issue of national tragedy and the horrific loss of life. The two horrible calamities that are recorded in our text form the backdrop for Jesus' teaching on some important truths that each of us must come to grips with and act upon.
