I want to tell you all this morning that you can absolutely disagree with someone and still love them. We have been duped into thinking that love is based on the total acceptance of every opinion, thought, action and reaction of another. And that is just not true We’ll never completely agree with another person on everything. Not even our spouse or…
 
When I was the youth director at my former church, our teen ministry had a “board of directors” made up of teens that kept us in the loop as to teen life, so that we could minister to them more effectively. You know names mean something, in some cases your name ties you to your legacy. We decided that our teen ministry needed a name that would tie …
 
Esther lived in ancient Persia about 100 years after the Babylonian captivity. When Esther's parents died, the orphaned child was adopted and raised by her older cousin Mordecai. One day the king of the Persian Empire, Xerxes , threw a lavish party. On the final day of the festivities, he called for his queen, Vashti, but the queen refused to appea…
 
Let me say this right off the bat, there is no compilation of expressed words that are deemed holier or more fervent than others. I have seen people ridiculed and criticized for their prayer, as some expect to feel something when someone prays. Which is why you have a lot of people who don’t like to pray publicly and also why you have a lot of peop…
 
Jonah’s Disobedience. (Jonah 1:1-3) Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me.” But Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid t…
 
We say God is omniscient, meaning one who knows all things. The word omniscient is nowhere in the bible but the inference of God knowing all things in prevalent from Genesis to Revelation. Psalm 147:5 Great is our Lord,abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. 1 John 3:20 “for God is greater than our heart and knows all things” There is …
 
He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End! He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all! He is the Architect of the universe and He is The Manager of all times. He always was, He always is, and He always will be… Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone! He was bruised and brought healing! He was pierced and eased pain! He …
 
We are venturing into part 2 of our study of Galatians. Galatians, the New Testament book, written by Paul as a letter to the Galatians who were believers who received salvation based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, but strayed from the foundation of the teachings that led to their receiving salvation. But they began to be drawn back to the pract…
 
TGIF: A "Lord You Are My Everything" Kind of PRAISE!! I am your son, You are my Father Oh how you love to love me Oh, You are my source, there is none other (there is none other) Oh how You love, to love me My life is in Your hands You've given me Another chance, to prove My love again My life is in your hands I just really wanna tell You I love ya…
 
Abraham is mentioned several times in the Bible for some of the great things he accomplished, but Romans 4 says that he was saved because of his faith and not because of his works. Hebrews 11 says that he followed God even though he was not sure where he was going. Abraham is known as a man of faith who faithfully followed the Lord’s leading. God g…
 
For the next few weeks right up to the Christmas season we will be studying the book of Galatians. The book of Galatians is Paul’s letter to the Galatians, to the believers, encouraging them to shift somethings, let somethings go, to exalt their faith over traditions and formalities. Let me give you a little background on the Galatians, they were b…
 
I want to talk to you this morning about walking out of your imperfections perfectly. First and foremost we need to understand that how or what we deem as perfection is quite different from how God deems it. We deem perfection based on “doing”, but God deems perfection based on “being”. Let me explain, the flaw in our perspective of perfection is w…
 
First and foremost before we enter into the word of God, please know this message is not a solicitation for me to become your pastor, however, it is a solicitation for everyone to become spiritually covered. We are living in a time when "church" is being done outside of the traditional parameters we are accustomed to and in all honesty, there is ab…
 
The character of an eagle provides some extraordinary life lessons for mankind, lessons that align with the character of God. When we look to enhance our character we should first evaluate what we want our lives to symbolize, what is the mark we want to leave on this, and what are some of the things we will be remembered for. The eagle symbolizes f…
 
The expression antichristos is found in the Bible only in the Johannine Epistles (1 Jn. 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 Jn. 7), but the idea behind it is widespread. We should probably understand the force of anti as indicating opposition, rather than a false claim, i.e. the antichrist is one who opposes Christ rather than one who claims to be the Christ. If this…
 
In the Bible, there are only two animals God uses to describe Himself, a lion and an eagle. Lions are the baddest thing that prowls the earth and the eagle is the "baddest" thing that flies in the air. Which explains why God uses these two things to describe Himself because he is the absolute control of the heavens and earth. Today’s sermon is part…
 
We all stand in the need of prayer. Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. John 15:7 If you abide in me, and my words …
 
You all know I am alway stressing the importance of studying the word of God. The Bible is truly our life manual. Some consider it antiquated and archaic, but it is so relevant for as modern as we think today’s times are, there is nothing that we do, say, or how we act or react that has not already been played out in the bible. To ignore that simpl…
 
This morning the spirit is leading me to address some of the foolishness that is running rampant amongst believers from our pulpits to the parking lots. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions and will turn away…
 
Paranoia is described as a condition that is derived from the lack of knowledge of truth or one’s resistance to the truth. The symptoms of paranoia are distrust, difficulty with forgiveness, defensive attitude, imagined criticism, preoccupation with hidden motives, fear of being deceived, inability to relax, argumentation. delusions of persecution,…
 
I am answering a question recently submitted. Can a believer become demon-possessed? Biblical scripture makes it abundantly clear that Christians cannot be demon-possessed. Now there is a distinct difference between being possessed by a demon and being oppressed or influenced by a demon. The core of our salvation is rooted in Romans 10:9 “if you co…
 
Parents, you ever look at the behavior of your children and don’t recognize the child you raise. Or has any of you thought you knew someone only to question, is this the person I thought I knew? I can only imagine God feeling the same way when he looks at us sometimes. Is this who I created, is this the one who says they know me? We live in a cultu…
 
Good friend, don’t forget all I’ve taught you; take to heart my commands. They’ll help you live a long, long time, a long life lived full and well. Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people. Trust God from the bo…
 
God said: “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations— that’s what I had in mind for you.” But I said, “Hold it, Master God! Look at me. I don’t know anything. I’m only a boy!” God told me, “Don’t say, ‘I’m only a boy.’ I’ll tell you where to go and you’…
 
Let me begin by defining what sin is. Sin is any violation of the mandate and or commands of God. 1 John 5:17 All wrongdoing is sin James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. 1 Cor 6:9-10 tells us “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither forn…
 
I may be telling my age but anybody out there remembers The Flip Wilson Show, he had a saying “The devil made me do it!”. It seems it is always easier to blame someone else for our wrongs, for being irresponsible, for even being greedy and unkind to one another. We blame fast-food restaurants for making us fat. We blame tobacco companies for giving…
 
When I was a child being raised in the church, I remember testimony service being a big part of our service. The role of Christian testimony is often misunderstood. The testimony of a believer should not be a laundry list or a checklist of failures and successes. A testimony is not about the fulfillment of things we wished for The only reason for a…
 
We live amongst of culture of people who have become wiser but weaker We more educated More tech savvy Even slicker in our wrong doing But we are far weaker than our fore-parents. We are weaker physically, spiritually and emotionally. And because we have become a world full of people who are spiritually and emotionally weak, everything that require…
 
We live in a society where if we are not careful, we will fall for the tricks of the enemy that prompt us to "dumb down" the word of God. What we have to remember is the Word of God transcends time, we don't serve a God who changes based on the trends of this world. We have become so democracy-minded, that we take no considerations that we serve th…
 
You know when people act differently around those with fancy titles and money than they normally do, people use to say that they’re putting on heirs. When you are putting on heirs you are on your best behavior, you make sure to say the right things, the correct way, you hold your head a little higher while maintaining a sense of humility because yo…
 
We have to get a handle on offenses and the reason why is because they are the bait of satan. Satan uses what offends to entangle us in sins that engage our mind, body, and soul. And sin is the element that keeps distance between us and God. Today is the prelude message to a series as we take the time to break down how offenses affect us in our phy…
 
There are some names and stories we as believers should know. Job 8:8-10 “For inquire, please, of bygone ages, and consider what the fathers have searched out. For we are but of yesterday and know nothing, for our days on earth are a shadow. Will, they not teach you and tell you and utter words out of their understanding? So be a little patient wit…
 
The words grace and mercy are often used synonymously, however, although they complement one another, they are not synonymous. Grace is about the favor of God. The word favor refers to an act of kindness beyond what is due or usual when privileges are extended that you didn’t earn and sometimes didn’t even ask for. To fully understand grace, we nee…
