  • The Blessings Of Hardships

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Aug 26, 2019
     | 229 views

    Jesus said he came to, "send fire on the earth." This sermon takes a unique approach on this idea and uses the fire metaphor as a purging of the things inside us that hinder us from becoming who we can be through God.

    The Blessing of Hardships Since this Gospel reading is intense, I thought I’d begin by admitting something kind of funny about it. When I read it this week, I pictured Jesus at a Charlie Daniels concert singing, “Fire on the mountain run boys run.” It also made me wonder, “… how am I supposed ...read more

    Which side of the truth do you find yourself each day.

    The Lord Be With You. Here lies a parable … There once was a man who would spend all his days and nights going into and out of his house. Other than the times he slept or ate, he was always seen walking out the front door only to then turn around and go back inside. You could watch him and this ...read more

  • The Winds Of Change - Embracing The Eye Of The Storm

    Contributed by Dr. Craig Nelson on Feb 23, 2019
    based on 2 ratings
     | 3,699 views

    The natural winds of the Earth are a type and shadow of the various facets of God moving in the supernatural realm. The direction of the natural winds represents spiritual seasons and movements of the Holy Spirit on earth, including the storms of life.

    “He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.” (Ps 135:7 NIV) The natural wind is the motion or flow of air or other gases that compose the atmosphere of the Earth. God created the atmosphere around the Earth to ...read more

    God has a special affinity for fire.

    PYROMANIAC God is the Original Pyromaniac Lk. 12:49,50 49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

     | 4,462 views

    Confrontation means, to bring face to face, a person or persons into a revelation or truth. Confrontation in a Christians life is real! Those that live for Christ will by their very conduct cause confrontation.

    THE ELIJAH CHURCH IS A CONFRONTATIONAL CHURCH INTRO: This is part of a series using the life of Elijah as a picture of the last day Church. It is also a stand alone sermon. 1 Kings 18:1-15 After a long time, in the third year, the word of the Lord came to Elijah: “Go and present yourself to ...read more

  • The Holy Spirit Of Witness And Division Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 21, 2018
     | 1,463 views

    The Spirit empowers, but the Spirit also divides. Because the Holy Spirit causes us to change our lives, and to summon our family and friends to the Christian way of life, conflict often emerges in relationships.

    Thursday of the 29th Week in Course 2018 The phrase, “fire that Our Lord came to cast down upon the earth” is reminiscent of an encounter Jesus had in his earthly life with James and John, sons of Zebedee. Some town had refused hospitality to Jesus and the disciples, so those two asked Jesus for ...read more

  • Before It’s Too Late

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Jun 19, 2018
     | 2,817 views

    As a spiritual people it is important for us to realize the spiritual signs of the times that we are living in. By the time that Jesus arrived the Jews fell into a kind of spiritual numbness that led to complacency. For them it was just another day.

    Before it’s too Late Luke 12:54-59 54 He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of ...read more

    God writes straight with crooked lines, in every age.

    Thursday of 29th Week in Course 2017 Reformation and Revolution Let’s imagine for a moment what happened when St. Paul and his companions came to a town in Anatolia or Greece, his two assigned missionary territories. There were probably Jews there, who met in someone’s home or maybe, if the ...read more

  • When Jesus Is The Adversary

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on May 19, 2017
     | 1,534 views

    A look at a challenging passage that indicates that when we refuse Jesus as Savior He will become our Adversary at judgment.

    - These verses seem out of place. Why would Jesus end what He was saying here with talk about going to court? It doesn’t really seem to have much to do with the points He’s just made. - When that happens (and it happens at multiple places in the gospels), the temptation is to either presume ...read more

  • Can We Win More People By Softening The Gospel?

    based on 1 rating
     | 2,558 views

    A study of Jesus' teaching that He did not come to bring peace to the earth and how we need to "fire it up" instead of "watering it down."

    CAN WE WIN MORE PEOPLE BY SOFTENING THE GOSPEL? The best plan is not to “water it down” but “fire it up.” - Luke 12:49. - Fire is referred to in this verse. There is a sense in which the truth of Christ is going to bring fire to the earth. - Fire burns down what already exists. - The ...read more
