  • The Wrath Of God Series

    Contributed by W Pittendreigh on May 24, 2006
    based on 4 ratings

    We are embarrassed and uncomfortable about the concept of the "wrath of God." However, Revelation is good news for those victims who long for an end to evil’s reign and pray, "Come quickly, Lord."

    I love this passage of Revelation -- I can’t read it without laughing outloud at one of the best memories of my ministry. Let us now hear the word of God from Revelation 16, beginning with verse 1. (Read Revelation 16:1-21) I suppose I should explain why I find this so uplifting. It all more

  • The Big Picture Series

    Contributed by Tim Smith on Jul 1, 2012

    The question is, “What or whom are you worshiping?” But what is worship?” Worship is our response both personal and corporate to God for who He is and for what He has done expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live.

    The Big Picture Romans 12:1-2 David Yarborough writes, “Back in 1992 when the Dallas Cowboys were preparing to play the San Francisco 49ers And then he writes, “Why did you come to worship today? Our primary reason for attending church should be to worship God, honor Him and to more

    based on 1 rating

    A sermon dealing with what it means to call Jesus "Friend."

    Jesus is…Friend John 15: 9 – 15 Jesus is friend. Saying Jesus is friend sounds a bit too personal, too informal, or a bit too friendly, even. Jesus is Lord. Yes, that sounds appropriate to us. It exalts him. He is Lord, high and lifted up. Jesus is Savior. Yes, that too. It defines his more

  • The Blessed Man

    The Blessed Man Psalm 112 Psalm 1 begins with the words “Blessed is the man.” What does it mean to be blessed? The Hebrew word for “blessed” means “happy”. It is an interpersonal term focusing on one’s relationship with the Lord God Almighty. When we use more
