1/22/17-“The New Jerusalem”-Rev.21 – CD#1630

new_jerusalem

We will need new bodies (John 14) so that we will not faint when we see the magnificence of heaven, and the New Jerusalem, with gold, silver, and precious stones used in the buildings and streets (Rev.21).   On earth we regard these things as rare and precious, but the amazing thing about God is that He just sees them as building materials, and decorations.  God doesn’t treasure them. God treasure you!

We are His treasure; we are what He values most. Peter said that we are “rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious.” (1 Peter 2:4). The value of something is usually determined by how rare it is, and God only made one of you. Jesus values you and Loves you, and He has invited you to be a part of His eternal family.  Will you accept His invitation today?

Sunday 15th- 10am – “True & Faithful Words” – Rev.21 – CD#1629

praise

“Behold I make all things new.” Be encouraged my brothers and sisters. We should not allow any more doubt about Christ’s power to save. Rather, by God’s grace, we will believe more in Jesus Christ, and, according to our faith, so shall it be. If we only trust Him for those whose faults seem to us few and light, our little trust will reap little reward; but if we can go with strong faith in our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and bring great sinners in our arms, and put them down before this mighty Regenerator of men, and pray, “Lord, if You will You can make them new.” And if we will never cease the pleading till we get the blessing, then we shall see even more illustrations of the fact that Jesus makes all things new; and calling up the witnesses of his redeeming power, we shall cry in the ears of a drowsy Church and an unbelieving world, “Behold! Behold! Behold! Jesus makes all things new.” May The Lord give us eyes to see it. Amen.

Sun.1/15, – “The Book of Life”-Rev.20 – CD#1628

1john222

“And anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” (Rev. 20:15). To be sure that your name is in that book should be the top priority of your life. –   It isn’t just calling Jesus Lord. Many will call Him Lord, but He will say; ‘..I never knew you’ (Matt.7:23). It is about surrendering your life to Him, and making Him the Master of your life.  –  If you haven’t done that, it would be the best way to start the New Year. Surrender your life to God and ask Jesus to save you, and to be the Lord of your life. Trust in God that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead. Give your heart to Him. Then you will know that your name is written in the Book of Life.  

1/1/17 – “Teach us to number our days” – Psalm 90 – CD#1628

Psalm Chapter 90 “Teach us to number our days”

“Numeration is a child’s excercise in arithmetic, but in order to number their days aright the best of men need the Lord’s teaching. We are more anxious to count the stars than our days, and yet the latter is by far more practical,(that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom). Men are led by reflections upon the brevity of time to give their earnest attention to eternal things;they become humble as they look into the grave which is so soon to be their bed, their passions cool in the presence of mortality, and they yield themselves up to the dictates of unerring wisdom; but this is only the case when the Lord Himself is the teacher; He alone can teach to real and lasting profit.”-C.H. Spurgeon

12/25/16 “Thy Kingdom Come” – Rev.20 – CD#1627

revelation-20

We believe the Rapture comes before God’s Kingdom (the Millennium) comes to earth (Rev.20). We have the same view as the Early church in 1 & 2 Thessalonians – the first letters to the church, or the ‘New Believer’s Handbook’.

We believe in a literal virgin birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, & a literal 2nd coming of Jesus & the defeat of His enemies. There can be no Kingdom age before Christ comes (Rev.19).  The righteous dead must rule with Him (Rev.20:5).  The separation of the chaff & the wheat must take place in order for righteousness to rule (Matt.13:40-43).    Satan must be bound before the Kingdom Age (Rev.20:1-3). Antichrist must be destroyed when Christ comes (Rev.19:20)  Israel must be restored before the Kingdom Age (Ezek.36:24-28 / Zech 12:10 / Rev. 1:7).  The 2nd coming of Christ will be unexpected (Matt.24:36). If  His Kingdom (the Millennium) came first, we would know.

10am Sun. 12/18/16 “Christ Our King” – Rev.19:11-21 – CD#1627

rev1911

Jesus has several names. He has the name “The Word of God.” he also has a name that no one knows except Himself. And He wears the name “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” seen here in Rev.19.   The most efficient form of government on earth is a monarchy, but it is only as good as the monarch. It is hell on earth if the King is a tyrant.   Jesus is the perfect King. He will rule absolutely, but in righteousness and love, and as the Bride of Christ, we will have the privilege of ruling with Him in His administration in the New Earth.

Sun. 10am Dec.11,16 “That Great Day” Rev. 19 – CD#1626

revelation-19

Revelation 19 brings us to some thrilling events that concern you and I as the Church, the Bride of Christ. This Chapter marks a drastic change in the tone of John’s Revelation. The destruction of the Beast’s kingdom marked the end of the Great Tribulation. Now we go from darkness to light, from days of judgment to days of blessing. Chapter 19 ushers in the greatest event for this fallen earth -That Great Day – the second coming of Christ.                                                                                                       Two amazing events are recorded for us here: The marriage supper of the Lamb, and the Return of Jesus to the earth.   Hallelujahs open the chapter and the opening of hell concludes it.  Two great suppers are recorded here as well; the marriage supper of the Lamb, and the feast of the birds of the air after the last part of the war of Armageddon.

Sun.10AM Dec.4 – “Commercial Babylon Falls” – Rev. 18 – CD#1625

rev-18

The world’s future economic power is also called Babylon, and is pictured as a commercial machine that is in business to cause people to desire and buy material things. Revelation Chapter 18 reveals the end of all those beautiful material things and the machine.    Jesus told the woman at the well, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst.”(Jn. 4) Over every advertisement, and every material thing we should write; “Whoever drinks of this will thirst again.”                                                                              Material things cannot satisfy. Commercial Babylon tries to convince us that if we buy enough we will be happy, but it is a lie. Jesus is the only One who can satisfy the longing in our hearts.

Sun. 10am Nov. 27, 2016 “Mystery Babylon”-Rev.17 – CD#1624

rev17

Mystery Babylon is pictured as a Harlot who corrupts the leaders of the world. The image of a Harlot is used to describe Christians who wander into, and accept false teaching, betraying Jesus Christ who loves them. Here in Rev. 17 we see the Harlot compromising with the Beast.    This Mother of Harlots is connected with the ten kings of the revived Roman Empire, and is centered in Rome (Daniel 9). Rome was built on seven hills and is clearly defined in verse 9. It is important to remember that the corrupt system coming out of Rome will be the church that will exists after the Rapture, when Christ catches away His Bride.   When you take all the Christians out of any church, what is left will be horrific. And is called “Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots…”

Nov.20,2016 “The Righteous Wrath of the Lamb” – Rev. 16 – CD#1623

rev16

The wrath of The Lamb is righteous. (Rev.16) But we also see mankind’s constant rebellion as they “blasphemed” their Maker, and “did not repent.”

God’s judgement is absolutely righteous because man’s stubbornness is so hard and unyielding.  The Father has done everything He can do to save mankind. He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for mankind. And yet, even when they experience the results of their sin, some of them will not repent. Nothing God does can bring them to repentance, so they must be sentenced to everlasting punishment. There is no other righteous thing God can do.
