The Messiah: Prophecy Fulfilled (Series)

If you were asked by someone, why they should believe Jesus is the Messiah, how would you respond? We are truly privileged to live at a time in history when we can look back at the Messiah’s arrival with a perspective that see’s what has already taken place, but it’s easy to miss the wonder of Jesus birth because we live around two thousand years after the fulfillment of the O.T prophesies. Isaiah prophesied the virgin birth more than seven…

As we look around at all the anger and hate in our divided country and around the world, we are challenged with the possibility that End Times could take place in our lives. Some believers are preparing for this possibility by moving to the middle of nowhere, buying guns, and preparing for Armageddon. Others are quietly feeling overwhelmed and emotionally caving. With all the bad information out there on the web, we that we should preach and teach on end…

The Time Between The Testaments

The Maccabees, Rome, and Herod By James Shedd – Community Bible Fellowship   The time between the Testaments was one of ferment and change; a realignment of traditional power blocs and the passing of Near Eastern cultural traditions that had lasted for almost 3,000 years.  The approximately 400 years between Malachi and the birth of Christ is known as the inter-testamental period (c430-4 BC). Sometimes called the “silent” years, they were anything but silent, as events, literature and social forces…

Invest In The Future

Invest In The Future How we live matters. When we teach by how we live, instead of by what we say, we earn the right to be heard and followed. Joshua 4:21-22   He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ Don’t allow your legacy to be destroyed by a hostile spirit. What we reap, we sow. Often the crop will be harvested…

Joy In All Situations

Joy In All Situations Is God more concerned with our comfort or our character? We worry and are concerned about how to make our lives more comfortable, while God is focused on our character. We think that comfort will bring peace of mind, but we see example after example of those with more than they could ever want, living lives of depression and shame. There is only one thing that can bring eternal hope which leads to joy and that’s…

Don’t Focus On YourselfLuke 22:24-2724 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered tobe greatest.Only a few days after Palm Sunday, these disciples who have beenfollowing Jesus, watching Him heal and teach so many, were oblivious towhat was truly important during their last meal together. They were sofocused on themselves and their own importance that were arguing witheach other over who was the greatest. It wasn’t the food that left a badtaste that night. Not…

Don’t Be Ruled By Anxiety And Fear

Don’t Be Ruled By Anxiety And Fear Is fear or anxiety keeping you from stepping forward in faith? Fear and doubt cause us to shut down emotionally, physically, and relationally. Either we give into our fears and become a bump on a log, or we live in fear and doubt with restless worry and nervous concern. If we want to stop being spectators and get into the game of life with purpose and passion, then we need God’s truth, healing,…

When God Is Silent

When God Is Silent Ephesians 6:18    18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.  Why should we keep on praying when God doesn’t seem to respond? One of the greatest gifts of prayers is being dependent on God more than we are on ourselves. God doesn’t need me to remind Him of anything, but committed prayer reminds me of my dependence on Him. When I’m…

Be Grateful

Be Grateful   The other day I was complaining in my mind as I sat at a stop light. It had gone through the cycle twice already, but my turn lane never turned green. You see an ambulance had passed through the intersection and caused me to have to wait. I felt the frustration building when a firetruck went through the intersection. Great, now I had to wait for another two cycles before my light turned green. I didn’t stop…

DEFEATING THE LIES OF THE ENEMY

DEFEATING THE LIES OF THE ENEMY I just blew it by getting frustrated with a family member and returned hurtful words with my own hurtful darts in response. As soon as I said these words, I knew they hit their mark and I had hurt someone I love dearly. I desperately wanted to change how I responded in anger and how I felt, but that’s not the real issue. I realize I need to change what I believe. 2 Corinthians…

Living A Restored Life

Living A Restored Life What does a restored life with Jesus look like? Jesus loves all believers including those who are struggling. He wants us to experience being free in Him, through real repentance and faith. So why are so many Christians living in bondage to sin? Galatians 5:1   It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. I believe one of the main reasons…

The Cost Of Rebelling Against God

The Cost Of Rebelling Against God  When speaking about ungodly people, who pervert God’s word,                                                       to get what they want, Jude, James’ brother wrote Jude 1:11 about three C men, Cain, Balaam, and Korah, who rebelled against God’s authority.   Jude 1:11   Woe to them!  They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error;  they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion. Being religious without faith is the “way of Cain”. It is the way of pride,…

Which Door Will You Choose?

Which Door Will You Choose? John 10:9-10   I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. They will come in and go out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.  When Jesus said, “I am the door,” He was stating Eastern custom of shepherds guarding the sheep by acting as a gatekeeper by spending the night lying down across…

The Blessings Of Obeying The Lord

The Blessings Of Obeying The LordActs 10:43 All the prophets testify about Him, that through His name everyone who believes in Him [whoever trusts in and relies on Him, accepting Him as Savior and Messiah] receives forgiveness of sins.” Even if you can fool everyone else, you can’t fool yourself for very long and you can never fool God. If you violate your own conscience, you’ll have to pay a serious price for that. But if you allow God’s truth…

Trust Never Comes Easy

Trust Never Comes EasyColossians 2:8-10 Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a…

Is God Even Listening?

Is God Even Listening? James 4:6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” God reaches out to the humble, because He knows we are teachable when we are free from pride and arrogance. Our attitude is connected to our ability to joyfully follow His leading. He also loves us enough to give us opportunities to grow in our humility so we can hear His truth and…
