He received this message in visions two years before the earthquake, when Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam II, the son of Jehoash, was king of Israel. 2This is his report ...read more

    God will allow disasters in this world in order to demonstrate His love to those in the aftermath and to draw others to a saving knowledge of Himself.

    This past week I was watching MSNBC and every night on this news program people were discussing why God would allow the tsunami. There were Christians discussing this and atheists. One Christian lady on the program felt that it was God’s wrath being poured out upon the victims of the tsunami. ...read more

    On His final night with the disciples, Jesus reassured them that the Holy Spirit would come. He defines in John 16:5-14 three roles the Holy Spirit would have.

    The Work of the Holy Spirit John 16 5"Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, ’Where are you going?’ 6Because I have said these things, you are filled with grief. 7But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not ...read more

    based on 47 ratings
     | 2,977 views

    We read in Lev. 14 of the ritual that persons healed of leprosy would go through. One bird was sacrificed and another set free. We who are in Christ need to see ourselves as birds set free.

    based on 44 ratings
     | 1,963 views

    We in America and in the church are in the midst of a great cultural war. How do we respond when we hear of gay marriages and gay pastors being ordained? We can learn from 1 Chronicles 11 that we need to not retreat, but rather hold the high ground.

    Holding Our Ground in the Faith Note: I am a United Methodist pastor who wrote this sermon in response to a recent ruling to allow a gay pastor to retain her ministry in the church. Though this message exhorts United Methodists to take a stand against a few radical elements within our fold, I ...read more

    In John 12, we see the calling of the Passion on the life of Jesus and we too are challenged to embrace that calling for our lives today!

    Since the Passion has been released, critics have claimed that Mel Gibson presented too nice of a Pilate. So who was the real Pontius Pilate? This is what we examine in the text of this sermon.

    As you know, since the movie the Passion has come out there has been a storm of controversy. One of the points of controversy about the film is that Mel Gibson didn’t portray a Pontius Pilate that was malicious enough. So on pondering this, I decided to try to research who the real Pontius ...read more

    Contributed by William Yates on Feb 28, 2004
    based on 65 ratings
     | 2,307 views

    The recent controversy over Mel Gibson’s Passion of Christ proves that whenever the message of the cross is presented unfiltered it always evokes controversy.

    The Unfiltered Cross 17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. 18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. ...read more

    In this text we read that Moses anointed the ears, thumbs, and big toes of Aaron and his sons. In this message we discuss how important it is for us as believers to learn to listen to God, act on what He commands, and walk in faithfulness.

    Leviticus 8 The Priests’ Offerings (1) 1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 2"Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, the anointing oil, a bull as the sin offering, two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread; 3and gather all the congregation together at the door of the tabernacle of ...read more

    When Christ was born, he was not visited by nobility, but rather, those considered the most vile and lowly in the society of their day.
