Palm Sunday 2019

The events of Palm Sunday were ordered 1500 years before they happened, and forecast to the exact day 500 years before. The intent of this message is to help us stop a moment to see the forecasted underpinnings behind the momentous events of what the Ancient Church termed “Holy Week.” Those things which lead to the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. To…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Envy

The Seven Deadly Sins I can’t find the phrase “Seven Deadly Sins” anywhere in the Bible and neither will you.  This list has long been in use however and was categorized by the early church leaders to help Believers better understand the directions that evil temptation can take; to encourage us to self-assess – looking for evidence of them in our…

The Triumphal Entry 2018

Resurrection Sunday Christ rising from the dead is what we stop to consider, admire and worship today.  And yet even this unprecedented fact of history was lovingly woven in advance into the very fabric of the Hebrew Nation.  The preeminence of Jesus as first fruits from the grave is anticipated by the Third of the Seven Feasts of Israel called the Feast of First Fruits. …

Born to Die

What is the Christmas Story About? There is a growing segment of society who see the Christmas story as more of a commercial observance then a celebration of the Baby Jesus.  This would be bad enough, but the story of His birth is only the beginning… the real Christmas story has to do with His helping people like you and me grow out of ourselves. Key Bible Verse I…

The Future Soon Here

The Book of Daniel chapter 9 offers not only offers amazing insights into prayer and objective spiritual self-assessment, but is testimony to God’s faithfulness in answering the call of His children. The focus in this message is Daniel 9:20-27.  This is the place where Daniel’s efforts at seeking (and what I like to call) “spiritual work” are…

The Real “You”

When you think of “you” what comes to mind?  The little voice inside? The compilations of aches, pains and life challenges your body endures? The headaches of formal studies, finding a suitable spouse, or of raising kids?  In one sense, it seems a silly question, but those walking the Jesus path need be aware the Bible offers very specific detail and important…

Calling Out to God

This week we come to the climax of the most comprehensive passage on prayer in the Bible. And though todays text (Daniel 9:15-19) is extremely important – it must be taken in context. If you bear with me then, I will offer a snapshot of what Daniel experienced to get to these verses. This review is a bit lengthy, but applying Chapter 9 as a whole will be a game…

Why Calamity?

Why do bad things happen to good people? If God is so loving and so caring, why do I see all this crud going on around me, or piling up in my own life?  Sometimes the burden of day to day living feels a crushing weight.  I deal with so many crumby circumstances that I am getting tired.  I ask God for help, but I don’t feel His help at all. It makes me wonder,…

What does the Bible do for me?

THE BIBLE READS YOU The key to remember about reading the Bible is that the Bible reads you. The Bible is totally unique among the spiritual texts underpinning the World’s vast gallery of faith systems. And although it is not difficult to find great richness and elegance in other readings; the Bible message of Jesus stands out in it’s singularity. The Words of…
