• A NATION INHERITED – A NATION TO REVIVE – A NATION TO PASS ON

    “A NATION INHERITED – A NATION TO REVIVE – A NATION TO PASS ON”
    ACTS 17:22-28

    INTRO: For those of us who live in America, we HONESTLY MUST SAY that we have INHERITED A GREAT NATION. 
    In the history of the world there has never been a nation like the U.S.A. and that is because GOD IN ETERNITY 
    PAST, DETERMINED WHO HE WOULD RAISE UP TO “DISCOVER” THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE, TO EXPLORE THE 
    TWO GREAT CONTINENTS OF THE HEMISPHERE, AND TO FOUND THE NATIONS ON THE TWO GREAT CONTINENTS 
    OF THE HEMISPHERE. (23 ON NORTH AMERICA AND 14 ON SOUTH AMERICA). Regarding the U.S.A., God RAISED 
    UP those seeking for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM to come to these shores as early as the 1500’s followed by the 
    PURITANS, THE PILGRIMS, and others, who, ever since, were and are looking for the FREEDOM AMERICA HAS TO 
    OFFER. In 1776 God raised up 56 MEN to sign the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, who, UNDER GOD, laid the 
    foundation for the GREATEST NATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. America quickly rose up BY GOD’S GRACE. 
    BUT within 100 years of her founding, through DARWINIAN SECULARISM, THE WEAKENING OF THE PULPIT, THE 
    COMPROMISE OF THE CHURCH, AND THE WORLDLINESS OF THE CHRISTIAN, she began to turn away from God 
    WHO BROUGHT HER INTO EXISTENCE. We have INHERITED A GREAT NATION, but NOW, FOR SUCH A TIME AS 
    THIS, GOD HAS PLACED YOU AND ME ON THIS CONTINENT AND IN THIS NATION TO REVIVE AMERICA AND TO 
    PASS IT ON TO THE GENERATIONS TO FOLLOW UNTIL CHRIST RETURNS.

  • A VICTORY HAS BEEN WON – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

    “A VICTORY HAS BEEN WON – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?”
    GENESIS 1:26,27; 2:7; DEUTERONOMY 30:19; PSALM 139:12-18; JEREMIAH 1:5

    INTRO: As I stand in this pulpit today, on June 26, 2022, it is my great honor to announce to you that “ROE V. WADE, THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION, IS NO MORE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!” In what took place in the United States Supreme Court on Friday June 24, 2022, we have evidence that GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE AND THAT HE IS DOING SOMETHING IN AMERICA AND IN RESPONSE TO WHAT GOD IS DOING, WE NEED TO PRAISE HIM AND GET ON BOARD WITH WHAT HE IS DOING!
    Today my message title is “A VICTORY HAS BEEN WON – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?”

  • A CALL FOR MEN TO UNDERSTAND THE TIMES AND RESPOND BIBLICALLY

    “A CALL FOR MEN TO UNDERSTAND THE TIMES AND RESPOND BIBLICALLY”
    1 CHRONICLES 12:32
    (A FATHER'S DAY SERMON)

    INTRO: It is hard to believe that we have come to another FATHER'S DAY, but the fact is true, THAT WE HAVE. On this FATHER'S DAY we truly do want to HONOR ALL FATHERS…particularly those who know and love the Lord. HOW CAN WE HONOR OUR FATHERS? 1) Through Obedience. 2) Through Respect. 3) Through Prayer, 4) Through Physical Care. 5) Through Spiritual Encouragement. 6) Through Financial Support. BUT IN TODAY’S MESSAGE, I believe the Lord has led us to focus on the fact that due to the circumstances of the times in which we live, WE NEED MEN OF A UNIQUE QUALITY AND CHARACTER who Understand the Times, Know what to do in these Times, and then will Lead others properly in these Times. In doing so, LET’S GO BACK ABOUT 3000 YEARS to when DAVID began to reign over Israel and learn from the SONS OF ISSACHAR about the QUALITY AND CHARACTER MEN SHOULD DEVELOP for SUCH A TIME AS THIS!

  • BELIEVING IS SEEING

    “BELIEVING IS SEEING”
    1 THESSALONIANS 2:13

    INTRO: In our last study from 1 Thessalonians, we focused on CHAPTER 2 and VERSE 13 that speaks of the 
    effectual working of the WORD OF GOD upon the lives of those who BELIEVE. You may recall that in that 
    study we learned three things:
     1) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE WORD OF GOD, NOT THE WORD OF MEN
     2) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE TRUTH OF GOD, AND IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH
     3) THE SCRIPTURE IS THE OPERATION OF GOD, ACTIVELY ENERGIZING BELIEVERS
    Today we are going to return to 1 Thessalonians 2:13 so as to focus on ONE SMALL WORD THAT BRINGS 
    ONE HUGE EFFECT upon those who practice it. It is the very last word of the verse…” BELIEVE.” The title 
    of the message today is “BELIEVING IS SEEING.” The point of the message is BELIEF IN THE RIGHT THING 
    ALWAYS RESULTS IN SEEING THE DIVINE THING. In other words, WHEN WE TRULY BELIEVE PROPERLY, WE 
    WILL TRULY SEE THE EFFECTUAL WORKING OF GOD IN OUR LIVES.
    NOTE: “BELIEVE” in the verse is “PISTEUO” in the Greek which means “TO COMMIT OR TO HAVE FULL 
    CONFIDENCE IN.”
    A REMINDER: The Bible DOES NOT JUST CONTAIN the Word of God…The Bible IS the Word of God. (Isaiah 
    55:11; Jeremiah 15:16; John 17:17; 1 Peter 1:23-25)

  • PREVENTING AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL FROM BECOMING AMERICA THE SORROWFUL.

    “PREVENTING AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL FROM BECOMING AMERICA THE SORROWFUL”

    PROVERBS 14:34

    INTRO: Often during PATRIOTIC SERVICES we sing the song “AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL.” I love that song as it speaks of the GREAT QUALITIES of our nation FROM the geographical beauty it has, TO the freedoms we have, TO the hero’s who died for those freedoms, FOR the patriotism many hold and to the blessings God has poured out upon the nation. GOD HAS SHED HIS GRACE ON AMERICA! But in recent weeks we have come FACE TO FACE with the reality that AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL IS BECOMING AMERICA THE SORROWFUL. Now even though that could apply to a number of things, the mass shootings we have experienced recently are TRULY SORROWFUL.

  • THE EFFECT OF THE SCRIPTURE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT

    “THE EFFECT OF THE SCRIPTURE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT”
    1 THESSALONIANS 2:13

    INTRO: Over the years in my pastoral ministry, I have received the following statements from people regarding the Word of God:
    1) Pastor, I try to read the Bible but never get anything from it.
    2) Pastor, I get so much out of the Bible I never want to put it down.
    WHY IS THERE SUCH A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE’S RESPONSES WHO CLAIM TO KNOW THE LORD REGARDING WHAT THEY GET FROM THE SCRIPTURE?
    ● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY SAVED
    ● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM GOD
    ● Perhaps one DOES NOT REALLY BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD
    ● Perhaps one is SAVED AND WANTS TO HEAR FROM GOD
    BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU GET FROM THE BIBLE DAILY? Today we are going to study from 1 Thessalonians HOW EFFECTIVE THE WORD OF GOD IS in the lives of those who TRULY BELIEVE IT.

  • ENTRUSTED WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

    “ENTRUSTED WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST”
    1 THESSALONIANS 2:1-12
    TEXT: VERSE 4

    INTRO: One of the TREMENDOUS HONORS we as BELIEVERS in CHRIST have is the PRIVILEGE of SERVING HIM ON A REGULAR BASIS. Each Christian is a MINISTER OF GOD and has a SPIRITUAL GIFT, WHICH IS A GOD-GIVEN ABILITY TO SERVE THE LORD. But it is important that WE ALL SERVE THE LORD EFFECTIVELY. The passage of scripture we will look at today gives some great principles in SERVING THE LORD EFFECTIVELY based upon the fact that we are ENTRUSTED WITH THE GOSPEL.
    CONTEXT: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12 is Paul’s testimony of his ministry in Thessalonica along with the team of Silas and Timothy. In these verses are QUALITIES that EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR MINISTRY. Because Paul had these qualities in his ministry, it was effective (Vs. 1). When we have these qualities in our ministries, we will be effective as well!

  • A LOOK AT THE GODLY WOMAN

    “A LOOK AT THE GODLY WOMAN”
    1 TIMOTHY 5:1-16

    INTRO: We are living in a time when it seems that many people are confused over so many things in society, including the 
    proper gender of a person, the difference between a man and a woman and even if a man can give birth to a child. 
    Obviously, this is because of the fact that SOCIETY WITHOUT A BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW, not only has no concept of the 
    proper understanding of gender as God has designed it, but REJECTS gender as God has designed it. As a part of rejecting 
    God’s design for gender, there are those who confuse and mix up the actions, attitudes and activities that define a male 
    and a female. Even within the realm of Christianity, you may find those who would not be able to DEFINE A GODLY MAN 
    AND A GODLY WOMAN. So on this MOTHER’S DAY, let’s allow the WORD OF GOD TO SPEAK OF ITSELF and give us insight 
    on THE GODLY WOMAN from GOD’S PERSPECTIVE.
    OBSERVATION: In our text Paul is teaching how we should HONOR elderly men, women, and widows. In doing so, he gives 
    at least 13 CLEAR DESCRIPTIONS OF THE GODLY WOMAN.
    NOTE: 1 Timothy is the PROVERBS 31 of the New Testament, thus describing the BIBLICAL VIRTUOUS WOMAN.

  • IDENTIFYING PRINCIPLES OF TRUE CHRISTIANITY

    “IDENTIFYING PRINCIPLES OF TRUE CHRISTIANITY”
    1 THESSALONIANS 1:9,10

    INTRO: In studying the Word of God we can clearly see many GREAT QUALITIES OF CHRISTIANITY. And 
    everyone that CLAIMS TO BE A CHRISTIAN would do well to COMPARE WHAT THEY BELIEVE A CHRISTIAN 
    IS, TO WHAT THE WORD OF GOD DESCRIBES A TRUE CHRISTIAN TO BE. This is important because there 
    are FOUR TYPES OF CHRISTIANS and ONLY ONE OF THEM IS BIBLICALLY CORRECT:
    1) The Traditional Christian: Because of Family Background.
    2) The Cultural Christian: Because of not being of another “Religion.”
    3) The Religious Christian: Because of acting out Christian Rituals.
    4) The Biblical Christian: Because of being Born Again.
    SO, WHAT KIND OF A CHRISTIAN ARE YOU?

  • A COMMENDATION OF GREAT THANKS

    “A COMMENDATION OF GREAT THANKS”
    I THESSALONIANS 1:1-10


    INTRO: “IS GOD THANKFUL FOR YOU TODAY?” Now you may respond to that question by asking “HOW DO I KNOW IF GOD IS THANKFUL FOR ME?” That is a fair question, but the answer IS NOT UNKNOWABLE. Today, right where we are, WE CAN KNOW IF GOD IS THANKFUL FOR US BY THE WAY WE ARE RESPONDING TO HIS WORD AND HIS WILL…ANOTHER WAY we can know IF GOD IS THANKFUL FOR US TODAY is by the way the Apostle Paul wrote to the CHRISTIANS AT THESSALONICA and by applying to OUR LIFE what he said TO THEM. In the passage before us, we can see clearly that PAUL GAVE A COMMENDATION OF GREAT THANKS to the Thessalonian Christians and when we OBSERVE why He gave the COMMENDATION, we can then determine: 1) IF PAUL WOULD BE THANKFUL FOR US, and more significantly 2) If GOD WOULD BE THANKFUL FOR US!
    OBSERVATION: The Church at Thessalonica was a MODEL CHURCH, and no doubt was THE ONE CHURCH for which Paul and the other missionary/evangelists were the MOST THANKFUL of all they were involved with in their ministry:
    ● 1 Thessalonians 1:2 and 2:13
    ● 2 Thessalonians 1:3 and 2:13
