The Unchanging God, Part 2

Scripture: Malachi 3:6

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Behold Your God!

Synopsis: Whenever we are making a purchase of something that is substantial, we want to know what kind of warranty that item carries. Whenever we contract with a vendor to provide a service, we want a guarantee of His quality of work in the form of a warranty. As we return to Malachi 3:6, tonight we want to answer this question: What guarantees that God does not change and cannot change?

The Unchanging God, Part 1

Scripture: Malachi 3:6

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Behold Your God!

Synopsis: The Greek philosopher Heraclitus once declared, “The only thing constant is change.” Although his statement may be a true observation about things in the created order, thankfully it's not true about God! Our text today is one of the clearest statements of one of our God’s unshared characteristics: His unchangeableness. What impact does the truth of God’s unchanging nature have on our thinking, living, and on our interpretation of the circumstances of life?

Developing Endurance, Part 2

Scripture: 2 Peter 1:5–6

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Faith's Vision of Christ, Part 3

Scripture: Hebrews 12:1–3

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Behold Your God!

Synopsis: When you keep in mind the flow of thought from Hebrews 11 to 12, you find that Jesus is not the final example of enduring faith that concludes the listing given in chapter 11. Instead He is the supreme example of enduring faith in the race. The reason for that is His relationship to faith is much different than any of those mentioned in chapter 11: it is qualitatively different! Today's text reveals three qualities about Jesus that set Him far above all the others mentioned in chapter 11 and qualifies Him to be the Object of our deliberate focus today, just as He was theirs, many years ago.
