This message looks at a prophecy given in 1965 that is being fulfilled in the Church today.
We’re going to begin tonight in First Timothy 4:1 and what I’m going to talk about has been on my heart for some time and it has to do with men and women who stand in the pulpit. When you understand how important a pastor is to a congregation, in terms of what he or she delivers to a ...read more

One of the unquestioned beliefs in the Church today is that God is in control of everything that happens in our lives and on this planet. This message addresses this belief using the analogy of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit as coaches of a football team.
Turn with me to Romans 12. We're going to read verses four and five. (4) For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: (5) `So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” Some years ago, a well-known professional ...read more

What Jesus did in the gospels should be seen in the Church today, but it's not. A revivalist is a person who restores what is unused. But it starts with recognizing where we are in our walk with Jesus.

If he was seated on a horse, the city was doomed; it was a sign that he had come in war, riding his ...read more
