We do not want to treat prophecy with contempt, and we don't want to quench the Holy Spirit. We are commanded this in 1st Thessalonians. Prophecy is a powerful weapon for Christians today, in the battle for our faith and for the faith of the people that we speak to. We need to take contemporary prophecy seriously. If we believe that Faith, Hope, and Love is vitally important to our faith, then we have to likewise believe the very next verse equally important: eagerly desire the gifts of the spirit, especially prophecy. The gift of prophecy is given specifically to edify the church: strengthening, encouraging, and comforting the church. (1 Thess 5:19-22, 1 Cor 14:1-5, 1 Cor 13:13)

In this sermon we will be talking about prophecy. Not the prophecies about Jesus that were made in the Old and New Testaments, but rather the prophecies that are made today, by people in the church, about other people in the church. Personal, specific, purpose filled prophecies are a powerful tool in the spiritual battle for our faith, and for the faith of the people around us. As a traditionally non-charismatic church, we have been guilty of quenching the Spirit, and of holding these contemporary prophecies in contempt. We have, in effect, thrown the baby out with the bathwater, because we are suspect of anything that is overly "crazy charismatic". Things like modern day prophecy, and speaking in tongues, these things make us squeamish and uncomfortable, but they are very much a part of the spiritual reality described for us in the New Testament. (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22, 1 Timothy 1:18-19, 1 Tim 1:3-7, 1 Tim 4:11-14)

Just because some Christian claims to be filled with the Spirit, and shares some ideas that they claim were given to them "by the Holy Spirit", doesn't mean that we should immediately believe them. The Bible tells us to test the spirits, and to discern if, when someone speaks from the spirit, to make sure that they are speaking the truth. That means that we should not be naive about the fact that there are false teachers who have infiltrated the church, who claim to speak truth from God, but who are in fact deceiving people, and leading them astray. (1 John 4:1-6, 1 Timothy 4:1-5, 2 Peter 2:1-3, Acts 13:1-12, 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22)

In this sermon we take a survey look at all 10 of the times that the phrase "filled with the Spirit" is used in the New Testament. 9 of those times are part of a descriptive narrative, and only 1 of those times is that phrase used in a prescriptive command. And all ten of those phrases have to do with one common theme: speaking boldly for the Lord! (Luke 1:11-17, 1:39-45, 1:67-79, Acts 2:1-4, 4:5-12, 4:31, 9:15-17, 13:1-12, 13:49-14:7, Ephesians 5:15-20)

If having the Holy Spirit living in your life is the seal of authentication, proving that you are a christian and a child of God, then the logical question to ask is: How do you know if you have the Holy Spirit living in you? Well, Jesus answers that question: you will have the fruit of discernment. Not only will you be able to discern false christian teachers from true ones, you will be able to discern false christians from true ones... by their fruit. And it will not be subtle or vague, their fruit will be obvious. (Matt 7:15-23, Gal 5:16-26, Gal 6:1, James 5:19-20)

We are christians if the Holy Spirit lives in us. It is a conditional expressed in Romans 8:9. And while teaching the disciples to pray in Luke 11:5-13, Jesus tells them to ask, seek, and knock in order to receive the Holy Spirit. So the question is, how does the Holy Spirit interact with us? Well, the New Testament describes two ways: having the Spirit and being filled with the Spirit. Having the Spirit is an authenticating sign that we are the children of God, and occurs when we believe in Jesus. Being filled with the Spirit is not a constant occurrence, but a momentary one, which brings about amazing things. This sermon considers Ephesians chapter 1, and the significance of the Holy Spirit as the seal of authentication in our lives as Christians. (Luke 11:5-13, Ephesians 1:3-14, 2:11-13, Romans 8:9, Acts 10:1-48, 2 Corinthians 1:21-22)

Special guest speaker Pastor Andrew Mills from Bethany Community Church preaching on the topic of sharing your story, and changing your community for Christ in the process. From Mark chapter 5, the story of the conversion of the demon possessed man, Andrew showed us a man who was willing to give it all up for Jesus, and Jesus simply told him to go back to his hometown and to share with those around him the wonderful things that God did in his life. And that is our challenge, to go to the people around us, and to share the wonderful things that God is doing in our lives. And through our story, we can change our communities from being skeptical about Jesus, to being interested in Jesus, to accepting and following Jesus. Amen!

Part 2 in our series on the Holy Spirit: being led by the Spirit. Often we think being "led by the Spirit" means that God is going to help us make life decisions... what job should I take, who should I marry, what bible passage should I study to give me an insight into my life, etc. But that is not how the New Testament speaks about being "led by the Spirit". Biblically, being led by the Spirit has a very specific and particular meaning. And, it is very important to be led by the Spirit, because "all those led by the Spirit are God's children." If you want to have confidence that you are God's child, then you need to be led by the Holy Spirit. (Rom 8:14, Matt 4:1, Luke 4:1, Rom 7:7-8:17, Gal 5:15-6:1, James 1:14-15, 1 John 1:8)

We begin a new sermon series this Sunday on the Holy Spirit. We often talk about Jesus, and about God the father, but we don't often speak about the Holy Spirit. Until Easter, we will be consider how the Holy Spirit is presented to us in the New Testament. This week we look at John 16, and what it teaches about how the Holy Spirit interacts with us, and with the world. (John 16:1-15, John 15:18-27, Philippians 1:27-30)

The penultimate sermon in this series, answering questions raised by the congregants of VMC. When we try to understand Heaven, we are often plagued with vague images from our culture and from Hollywood. When the Bible talks about the afterlife, the discussion revolves around the resurrection of the dead, and not around Heaven. The Bible has a totally different understanding of what Heaven is than our culture does. We consider quite a few passages to gain an insight on what the perspective of the Bible is in regard to Heaven and our afterlife hope. (Matt 22:23-33, 1 Thess 4:13-18, Phil 3:1-21, Col 3:1-7, Rev 21:1-8, Isaiah 51:6)
