So it’s 95 AD. The church is being persecuted even to the point of death. Christians must choose between worshipping the emperor or God. John has been boiled in oil on the penal colony called Patmos. But he hasn’t despaired. He has a vision and knows what’s coming “after this!”
Beginning with Adam and Eve we see a curse traveling through the generations. The blood reverses the curse! Join us for the new 3 sermon series "The Writing on the Wall".
Sunday Pastor will begin to look at "The Greatest Sermon Ever Preached!" This series will be about "The Sermon on the Mount". Join us every Sunday to hear the next amazing part of this series.
First Sunday in January we said there was a darkness coming. We began a seven week series called “Coming out of Babylon” based on five words the Lord gave us: Joyful, Gathered, Faithful, Together, Harvesting. The seventh message was “Canoeing in the Mountains. So what does it look like now three months later?
The 4 gospels are full of famous people. I want to share a story about an average guy. He was a secret Christian. He didn’t preach, didn’t follow Jesus publicly, didn’t leave his job. He had questions & doubts. He was like his fellow councilman Nicodemas who came to Jesus. They were members of the Council of 71.
The early church in the first 3 centuries grew at an amazing rate in spite of all the reasons people had to not join. You were shunned, scorned, gossiped, jailed, killed. You could lose jobs, family, & friends and influence. It wasn’t the worship services that drew them it was their lifestyle.
The woman with the issue of blood was in quarantine for 12 years. Let’s look at how she finally pushed out of her condition and got her miracle.
There are actually quite a few people in scripture that have experienced times of quarantine from the Lord. Jesus, Elijah, Joseph, Noah, John the Baptist, the Apostles, Paul in jail, Jonah in the whale, To name just a few. They all came out in power!
What we are facing is not a interruption, it’s a disruption. Some churches have chosen to not close but they are missing what God is up to and their churches will remain like they were. Let’s not miss this visitation!
You can’t find eggs in last years nest!
Some worshipped, some doubted
All power was given them
Go and make disciples
I am with you always
