Remember, Restore, Renew

Some Christians are content with head knowledge with a weak prayer life. Others find ways to feel connected to God that the Bible has not taught. In this message from Lamentations 5, we will learn from Jeremiah that prayer is more than asking. It’s spending time with our Father, and getting to know him, not just about him. In this we find that prayer is the source of true spirituality.

Jesus has Power Over Death

You cannot believe that God died to rescue you from wrath for sins without living a life to be free from sins. You also cannot live a life free of sins without believing that Jesus is Lord. It doesn’t compute. If you believe in Jesus, you follow him in the way he lived. If you don’t believe in Jesus, you do whatever you think is right in your own eyes.

I want this to unsettle the way you think about Christianity. Too many people become Christians because they want Jesus to help them live their life better.

Jesus is the Son of God (The Doctrine of the Trinity)

Peter Pan isn’t the sword-wielding, swashbuckling, pirate-swallowing story you remember. It’s actually a beautiful adoption story. It’s about family and the adoption of sons by righteous fathers. Likewise, Jesus is the Son of God so that we can be adopted as children of God.

Come Lord Jesus, Maranatha!

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

Our life is neither hopeless nor meaningless. What we do matters to God. This message encourages us to REMEMBER that there is a future for Christians and that the future is foundational to the Christian faith. We are to WATCH and pray for the arrival of the future return of Jesus. And we LIVE as though what we do in life now matters to God in the end—our lives are not hopeless or meaningless, but purposeful and valuable in God’s eyes.

Death and Resurrection

First and second death? First and second resurrection? What’s this all about, really? Inn this message, we talk about the ideas of the 1st and 2nd deaths and resurrections to bring some clarity to these questions, as well as application. If Satan was bound at the 1st death, that will inevitably affect our worldview as well as behavior as humanity awaits the 2nd, ultimate death. For Christians, we have a great hope of a 2nd resurrection that informs how we live and how we see the world as well.

The Woman’s Son, Revelation 12-14

The theme of the story is war in heaven. When did Satan fall? Probably not when you think. Who are the stars that were swept out of the sky and why did they join the Dragon’s armies to fight against heaven?

The Ark in the Temple of God, Revelation 8-11

In this message we look at the relationship between the 7 seals and the 7 trumpets. We also begin to place the seals and trumpets into a chronology to understand the flow of the narrative of Revelation and the coming of the end.
