One of our Elders, Greg Good, preaching on the life of Jacob from the book of Genesis. Particularly the story of Jacob wrestling with God, as Jacob was afraid for his life from his brother Esau. This is a story about prayer... and enduring in prayer...

Revelation (Part 26): The Lamb and His Followers

In this sermon, we consider the Lamb's 1st response to the Dragon, the beast, and the false prophet: the 144,000. This group of people is the same 144,000 that is described in chapter 7: the true Israel of God, those redeemed from among all the people, the church. Here in chapter 14, the 144,000 are described in 3 ways: 1) they were virgins, 2) they followed the Lamb, and 3) they were purchased in order to be offered as a first fruits. That is what they were, and what they did: 1) They did not lie, but spoke the truth, and 2) They were blameless.

Revelation (Part 25): The Beast from the Earth

This sermon considers the second half of Revelation chapter 13: the second beast, the imitation lamb that speaks like a dragon, the false prophet. We don't like to think that as Christians, difficulty and suffering and persecution is promised for us. And our cry is not that the persecution would end, but that we would endure through it. That we would be faithful through it. That when we will be tested, when we will be tempted to take the easy way out, that we would rather remain faithful to the teaching of Jesus. We also consider the mark of the Beast: 666.

Revelation (Part 24): The Beast from the Sea

Today we consider the first ten verses of Revelation chapter 13. Satan begins his rage against the churches, and he calls forth a beast from the sea to accomplish his furious purpose. For the initial audience (the 7 churches that the book of Revelation was written to), that beast was Rome, or the Roman Empire. And the whole known world at that time was in awe of Rome, and assumed that Rome was unconquerable. And Rome was about to bring persecution, captivity, and even death, to those early Christians. This called for patient endurance, and faithfulness on the part of the saints.

In this sermon we consider the second half of Revelation Chapter 12. Satan, the red dragon, has been frustrated, and has lost battles with God. He could not defeat faithful Israel, he could not devour Jesus, he could not beat the archangel Michael... and so, filled with fury, the Devil turns his focus against the church: Those who keep God's commands, and are faithful to the testimony about Jesus.

Revelation (Part 22): The Woman and the Dragon

This sermon considers the first 6 verses of chapter 12. We learn that a woman is about to give birth to a son, Jesus. But this isn't Mary, the woman represents faithful Israel. And waiting to devour this child is a red dragon, Satan. But he will fail...

One of our Elders, Matt Trussell, preaching on the importance of confessing our sins to one another, so we can have fellowship with one another, and walk in the light. We glorify God in our weakness, and it is important to be honest about our sins, in order to establish authentic disciple making relationships.

Today, as we celebrate the advent of love, we consider the second portion of Revelation chapter 11. And it may seem strange to consider the second coming of Jesus during the Christmas season, but the early Christians focused entirely on the second coming when they were celebrating Advent. So, we will read Revelation, and we will learn about the fulfillment of the coming Kingdom of God, the fulfillment of His final judgement, and the call of love. This love is the expression of God's love for us in Christ Jesus... the love that pleads with us to believe in Jesus and be saved.

Joy in the Midst of Sorrow

Today we light the advent candle of Joy, and we want to have an authentic joy in our lives... the joy of the Lord... which is our strength... And yet, there are many of us that struggle with sorrow, loneliness, and grief... How can we have joy in the midst of this sorrow? Jesus calls all who are weary and burdened to come to Him, and He will give them rest. As Christians we do not grieve like those who have no hope... we grieve like those who have hope... and we do not grieve along... we grieve together... we rejoice together... we pray together... as a family...
