Christ, the Curse and the Cross

 

Gary Wilkerson

March 12, 2017

Jesus is glorious, beautiful, and holy. Our words can't even fully describe him. There is no sin in Jesus—yet he took on the curse of sin for us. On the cross, Jesus removed the wrath of God from all those who receive him as Savior and replaced it with his perfect righteousness. When we consider all that Jesus has done, it should bring us to awe, reverence and an outpouring of worship and thanksgiving.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

 

Carter Conlon

March 12, 2017

This message comes with a warning. The world as we know it is going to plunge into an unspeakable darkness. Israel will soon be encompassed by enemy armies. Jesus warned us in the last days that many false prophets are going to arise and many people will be deceived because they are not in the Word of God. There is power in the Word of God to bring life, strength and direction. The promises of God are there for you to establish your thoughts so you can get through your day. We can't live on yesterday's bread, that’s why Jesus told us to pray, “Father give us this day our daily bread.” Let’s get into the Word of God and allow the Word of God to get into us.

The Church Alive: God Is Ready to Kill You

 

Michael Petillo

February 26, 2017

When the Holy Spirit comes in power, it is like dynamite that reshapes and changes things. God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, wants to reshape and change you into the image of His Son, Jesus Christ. God wants to put to death in you things that are not like Him—fear, anger, unforgiveness, addiction, etc. Say yes to Him today. Then abide in and obey the Word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit will remain in your life.

Facing A Moment Of Bitter Division

Carter Conlon

February 26, 2017

We are living in a perilous and dark moment in history and all around us evil speech is permeating the air. As the Body of Christ we must not get swept away in this bitter division. Our cry should be God gives us the Grace to be your Ambassadors of forgiveness and reconciliation. Just as Joseph’s father gave him a coat with many colors so did God the Father give His Son Jesus a Body of all colors. Love and unity among God’s people gives us a testimony that burns bright and brings Glory to Jesus.

Come Prepared

 

Michael Petillo

February 12, 2017

Why is church boring? The early church in the book of Acts was anything but boring. Pastor Michael Petillo challenges the church to seek Jesus daily—all of the church, not just the pastors and elders. When you commune with Christ everyday, He will begin to open up divine opportunities and stir up the gifts of the Holy Spirit in your life. You'll come to church prepared, and it will be anything but boring. It will be full of God's presence and power!

Living On Had-Hoped Street

Carter Conlon

February 12, 2017

You started out with such fervor and fire for the Kingdom of God and now you find yourself living on Had-Hoped Street. Had Hoped Street is easy to find, it intersects with Too Late Lane, Despair Drive and Bitterness Blvd. Just travel on Personal Excuse Expressway and get off wherever you like. To continue your journey study the bible, listen to its direction for your life and then go another way. Today Jesus will meet you where you are and offer you a way out. We begin our departure when Jesus opens our eyes to the fact that He was broken for us and He is inviting us to be broken for others. When we, even in our confusion make the choice to live for the benefit of others Jesus comes into full view again.

Ignorance is Not Bliss

 

Nick Cassidy

February 5, 2017

With all that is going on in the world today, it is tempting to complain and argue. Sadly, much of the church seems ignorant and lacking in knowledge. Most of us are thankful for our salvation and forgiveness of sins, but there is so much more to our faith. Pastor Nick Cassidy exhorts the church to ask God for a supernatural outpouring of His Spirit. There is a darkness in the world today that cannot be overcome by the natural mind and mere doctrine. It requires a people operating in the power of the Holy Spirit!

Why Do The Nations Rage?

Carter Conlon

February 5, 2017

What is this grand conspiracy forming in the world today? What is the source of this agitation? Satan has succeeded in sowing his character in humanity that says we can be our own judge and determine for ourselves what is good and what is evil. The only impediment to this misguided journey in this society is now on God and His people who stand in stark contrast showing the world there is a God, and there is something called sin. Sin separates us from God, not just in time but for eternity. There is only one King in this world and Jesus is the only King that can show mercy to a sinner and declare them forgiven and cleansed. If you are a casual Christian living in compromise the Holy Spirit will help you escape the boundaries of your own stubbornness and empower you to live in the boundaries of God's kingdom.

Help! My Feet Are Slipping

 

Michael Petillo

January 29, 2017

There may come times in your Christian walk when it feels like your faith is slipping away. You see the hardships in your own life and the evil in the world around you and wonder if God is truly good. You ask yourself, “Have I followed Jesus for nothing?” In Psalm 73, Asaph faced a similar crisis of faith. It wasn’t until he “entered the sanctuary of the Lord” that his hope was restored. God compassionately heals the brokenhearted by revealing his glory and majesty. This doesn’t happen in a church service or during flashes of intimacy with him, but when we make a choice to continually seek him.
