Synopsis: With this past week's unprovoked and unjustifiable Russian invasion of Ukraine, the events of chapters 12-14 come alive. For in this section the prophet Zechariah predicts a world war in which a multi-national military force invades Israel and seeks to conquer Jerusalem and annihilate the Jewish people. Today's text is a second look at the theme of Christ as the Conquering King. We look at two unique aspects of this king that offered hope for the Jews of Zechariah's day and us in our day.
Synopsis: Tonight we take our final look at Matthew 6:10 and the third prayer request found at the end of the verse. Tonight's message deals with the fourth kind of obedience we should render to "Our Father Who is in Heaven." Taken the little word "as," we find there is a point of comparison being made which yields rich fruit and wonderful truth that is to guide our obedience as we seek to follow God's will.

Two wonderful points of application emerge from God's view of His people in today's text that will encourage your heart.

Synopsis: In part 4 of our look at this 3rd prayer request given in "The Lord's Prayer," we consider the third of four types of obedience every born-again believer ought to pray for as expresses a desire to obey the revealed will of God.

Synopsis: Due to a covid exposure, this message from our pastor was pre-recorded since he was unable to deliver it in person to our church family. As Zechariah presents Messiah as a living hope, he focuses on the kingship of Christ. That kingship is given under three headings - His character, coming and conquering. This message focuses on Christ's coming from a famous text of Scripture typically considered on Palm Sunday.
Synopsis: Christ's kingly character assures us there is very good reason to hope in His ability to work in our behalf and to fulfill His promises to us. So what kind of character does Christ have? This coming king has four character traits that challenge us to put our hope and trust in Him.
Synopsis: As used in Scripture, God's will can be put into two broad categories. Tonight we look at the second great arena in which God's will is to be carried out--the realm of His commandments. Here, praying this third request in the Lord's Prayer, means we express a desire for obedience. The key truth is very simple but far-reaching: every born-again child of God should pray for four kinds of obedience to the revealed will of "Our Father." Tonight's message deals with the first two responses.
