  • The Folly Of Fighting God

    Contributed by Troy Walliser on Apr 19, 2021

    Though there may be temporary worldly TRIUMPHS, God will ACCOMPLISH all His purpose through His church.

  • Guardian Angels Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 20, 2021

    Guardian angels are real, and there can be no doubt of that, but they are not our business. We have no control over their activities, and no claim on their protection.

    There are few stories more exciting than escape stories. One of my favorite kinds of movie when I was a kid was prison escape movies. They are so full of suspense, and the obstacles to overcome are enormous. There is a great need to be clever, and best of all, they are not fiction, but are based more

  • The Liberation Of Peter From Prison Series

    Contributed by Jerry Smith on Mar 18, 2021

    God works a miracle opening physical doors for Peter. The miracle you need may not be physical doors, but God can open all doors according to His will.

    We continue our study of doors in the Bible. We have studied: • God shutting the door of the Ark • The figurative open door of opportunity to the church of Philadelphia • Jesus symbolically being the Door to Salvation • We are to choose to enter the door to the narrow road to Heaven • Today we more

  • Peter's Arrest And Church's Prayer Series

    Contributed by Rev. Andrew B Natarajan on Mar 1, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    The war between the political and spiritual leaders is an age-old issue. It exists time immemorial. Religious leaders are raised by God, whereas political leaders inherit from their forefathers, are elected by their citizens through democracy.

    Acts 12:1-17 Political and Spiritual Powers 12:01-05 Peter arrested and Church at Prayer 12:06-10 Peter released by an Angel 12:11-17 Peter Escapes to Unknown place Acts 12:01-05 Peter arrested and Church at prayer The war between the political and spiritual leaders is an age-old issue.

  • When God Takes Over

    Contributed by Wilson Oshorakpor on Feb 27, 2021

    When God intervenes in the life of his children, he takes complete charge and provides solutions man may think impossible.

    TEXT: Acts 12:5-7 "Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the more

  • Praying Through A Pandemic

    Contributed by Otis Mcmillan on Feb 2, 2021

    The church ought to pray with great expectation because (1) God sees our trials, (2) God hears our prayers (3) and God will take care of our enemies.

    Acts 12:5 “Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” The graphic scene of Acts 12 is not strange to the Church. The church has always faced opposition. Since its inception, the devil has been trying to stop the church and even to more

  • Jesus Delivers His Church

    Contributed by Reuben Bredenhof on Jan 28, 2021

    In his church, the Lord Jesus is still doing the good work that He has begun, and He is doing it unstoppably.

    Beloved in Christ, I’d be worried if the church was a human effort. If it was up to us alone to defend the church, maintain her unity, or increase her numbers, we’d have reason to be concerned. For the church would certainly follow the path of so many man-made clubs and societies—for a while strong more

  • The Trek To The Throne

    Contributed by Jay Yousling on Jan 4, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    God calls us to approach His throne of grace. In Hebrews 4:16, we are instructed to approach Him in confidence. James instructs us to approach the Father with faith. Let's take a 10,000 foot view of what the Word of God says about approaching the Father.

    THE TREK TO THE THRONE Hebrews 4:16 "Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." One angle to tie these attributes, these qualities together is to relate it to a backpacking trip. People more

  • The Power Of Earnest Prayer Series

    Contributed by Brian Bill on Nov 7, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    God often does the unexpected when we’re earnest in prayer.

    A week ago, I listened to the Voice of the Martyr’s podcast called VOM Radio and learned about Petr Jasek, a believer from the Czech Republic, who was imprisoned in Sudan for 14 months. He served as the Africa Regional Director for Voice of the Martyrs and traveled to Sudan on their behalf. BTW, more

  • Opening Doors Series

    based on 1 rating

    This is the 26th sermon in the Action Series. This series began during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Series: Action [#26] OPENING DOORS Acts 12:1-25 Introduction: How do you know when to go through doors of opportunity? How do you know if the door is even open? In the Book of Revelation, a message was given to the Church in Philadelphia. Revelation 3:7-8 Our text today, shows us how to more

  • Transgressors And Intercessors Series

    Contributed by Bright Adeyeye on Aug 27, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    There is an urgent need for intercessors today.

    TRANSGRESSORS AND INTERCESSORS “30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. 31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; more

  • Lord, Teach Us To Pray!

    Contributed by Melvin Newland on Aug 17, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Someone said, "The purpose of prayer is to draw us close to the heart of God so that our will, our deepest desires, will be those of God & not our own." (Powerpoints Available #410.)

    MELVIN M. NEWLAND, MINISTER RIDGE CHAPEL, KANSAS, OK (Powerpoints usedc with this message are available at no charge. Just email me at and request PP #410.) TEXT: Acts 12:1-19; Luke more

    Contributed by Pastor Amos Dele Dada on Jun 17, 2020

    Welcome you with joy to our month of prevailing prayers. People of God, the need of the hour is powerful, persistent, passionate, prevailing prayer.

    Welcome you with joy to our month of prevailing prayers. People of God, the need of the hour is powerful, persistent, passionate, prevailing prayer. The need is far greater than most of God's people realize. The good news is that prayer works. Whatever you are going through, whatever our nation more

  • Open The Door

    Contributed by John Dobbs on Jun 9, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Emerging from a time of crisis is not easy - and everyone is dealing with that on their own terms. In our text today the Christians in Jerusalem are in a firestorm of persecution and trouble - a time of crisis that became a time of prayer.

    Open The Door Acts 12:1–11 Introduction As we enter Phase Two in Louisiana, doors are opening that have not been. More churches are meeting - although with recommended restrictions to keep people as safe as possible from the virus. Emerging from a time of crisis is not easy - and more

  • Jesus Christ Our Passover And First-Fruit

    Contributed by Patrick Usifo on Apr 14, 2020

    Perhaps you are calling the resurrection day of Christ Easter instead of the First-fruit. Learn the truth and be set free from errors

    Christ our Pascal and First-fruit The Bible records that Christ rose up from the dead on the third day after fulfilling the feast of the Passover called Pascal. In truth, He died to fulfill the Pascal, but He rose up in fulfillment of the important feast of the first fruit. Believers of every more
