Houston's First Baptist Church is a relevant biblical community where we gather our hearts, grow our souls and give our lives as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). This podcast provides weekly messages from Pastor Gregg Matte and others. Visit us at HoustonsFirst.org to learn more about HFBC, and visit us in person the next time you're in Houston!
The False Prophet and Great Harlot
The false prophet and the great harlot come to deceive, divide, destroy, and distract. Everything about the unholy trinity is counterfeit, but it has still been wreaking havoc. Even in all of this there is still hope though, and His name is Jesus. In Him, we can walk in repentance, in purity, and in victory.
Antichrist and False Prophet
Though evil is being restrained, Satan is ready to release the antichrist. The antichrist will be one who comes with peace, but he will set himself up as God and will want to be worshipped. There is good news in all of this though because he doesn’t win! Jesus wins! And God has us in this present moment so that we can continue to share the gospel in this hour of grace.
WE>ME: Ice Storm 2021
It has been a very difficult week, but we can know that God is over all things. We will get through this together. Let's be active in sharing our faith during this time as we recognize both the physical and spiritual needs around us. As we give and receive love, it will bring encouragement, refreshment, joy, and a heart for God.
Better Together Weekend
Through looking at the book of Philemon, we can see how biblical it is to show appreciation. Gratefulness actually improves our outlook on life. As we trust Christ in this difficult time, let’s continue to love one another well and know that the church is moving forward and God is at work.
God's Motivation for Missions
Heaven will be filled with the nations; therefore, our earthly plans must involve discipling the nations. Let’s have open hands and humble hearts, and ask God to use us for His glory and our joy.
Tribulation: 1 Scroll, 2 Witnesses, and a Red Dragon
We know that the plans of God are sweet, but they can be tough to take at times. He wants all to come to repentance, and He is faithful to continue to share His Word through His messengers, even at the end. And though Satan is at work, we can rest assured that there is victory in Jesus!
