    Get Ready for New Beginnings

    Get Ready for New Beginnings

    Acts 11  — This is such a heart-warming story. Inspirational.  But it doesn’t seem to happen in this day and age.  Why not?   We (the church) aren’t living in Acts—We are living in Matt 24; 2 Tim 3; 1 Thess 4,5; 2 Thess 2;  2 Pe 3; Jude; Rev 3.
    How bad are things now? Rise to the level of scripture?   Yes.  Then add in Israel!.
    We are like the lifeboat as people are being swept away.  This time we are living in isn’t the beginning of the church age.  We are in the tail-end of the church age.  It’s now a rescue operation more than a birthing operation. 
    Am I preaching defeat and hopelessness? 
    No way.  More, DIRECTING OUR FOCUS
    Scriptures:  Acts 11; Jude 1:17-23

    Whom We Worship

    Whom We Worship

    THEY’LL KNOW WE ARE CHRISTIANS by whom we worship.
    In Acts 7  Stephen was preaching to the high priest and recounting the history of their people. He quoted Amos 5:25 wherein God chastised the people for carrying their idols with them.  Who are these idols mentioned?   Moloch was the Canaanite sun god and Rephan was a star god.  The Jews were worshipping the sun, moon, and stars not God.  Sadly, these gods are still being worshipped today.
    God does not take kindly to idolatry in any form.  IDOLS are not harmless trinkets. We’ve been shown the way. We've been convicted and offered Grace. Your Response? Are you worshipping idols?  You might be surprised....
    Scriptures:  Acts 7; 1 Kings 11:7;  Exodus 20:3-5, 34:11-17;  Joshua 24:19-20;  Isaiah 42:6-8;

    Jesus says, Repent and Believe

    Jesus says, Repent and Believe

    If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  That's it.  Too often things are added to this in order to be saved.   
    What then do we say to and about those who are blatantly sinning after being saved?Transformation into Christ-likeness is the Spirit’s work.
    Listen in as we open this discussion up of grace, fruit, flesh, and what it means to believe on the Lord Jesus.

    Faithful Witness Brings Great Results

    Faithful Witness Brings Great Results

    Series:  They'll Know We Are Christians
    50 Days after Jesus ascended the Apostles were in a house preaching the Resurrection and that God had made Jesus both Lord and Christ.  As the hearers witnessed the acts of the Holy Spirit arriving, they asked the apostles, “what shall we do?”  The apostles answered, “Repent and be baptized”… and that day 3000 were baptized.  Then further, the growth continued to 5000.
    They were preaching the good news of the Lord Jesus, and the hand of the Lord was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord.  During this early preaching, Stephen witnessed to the Pharisees and was stoned to death.  The new believers were scattered back to their own countries and their faithful witness continued to grow the new church.
    What does it mean to repent?   Listen in...

    Queen of Heaven

    Queen of Heaven

    Who is the Queen of Heaven?  Listen in as we open the door to this answer.  Find out about the connection between Genesis and Revelation. (Hint: a city, people, gods, and a religion)  Surprisingly, this Old Testament teaching helps us understand the reason behind the changing of holidays, times, seasons, traditions that are sweeping through our present age.  Question the rituals and events you are participating in without thinking about them. 
    Scriptures:  Jeremiah 7:16-20, 44:15-19;  Ezekiel 8:7-18; Daniel 7:25

    Ride On King Jesus

    Ride On King Jesus

    On the first day of the week, Jesus presented Himself as King riding on the colt of a donkey.  People followed Him, shouted and danced Hosanna!  As Jesus approached Jerusalem He wept over her.  At the end of the day He returned to Bethany.  We read the many profound things that happened as Jesus went into Jerusalem Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  Listen in and put this portion of the Gospels into chronological context.
    Scriptures:  John 12:12-19; Luke 19:39-44;  Matthew 21:12,13;  John 12:20-26;  Matthew 21:42-44;  John 12:42-50.
