Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 1) - There have been many turbulent and unsettling times in history. Are we going through just another difficult period, or is there something special about this time? This series will help you better understand what is the same and what is different about our present crises. It will enable you to understand that God loves you and cares very much for you, and that God has provided you with invaluable insights into both what is unfolding and how you may live so that you can be most helpful to God, to others and to yourself. This introductory message describes why an examination at this time of a series of certain biblical texts written in the literary form called "apocalyptic" is even more important than it was in the past. Those hearing this message and upcoming messages are invited to participate at one of three levels, with each successive level providing a greater opportunity for learning and benefit.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 3) – As Christians we must never forget that in this world we have an enemy who opposes God and all truth that God has revealed to his people. In this sermon “Know your Enemy” we learn who this enemy is and the 2 primary means used by this enemy to influence this world. Just as successful military campaigns use intelligence to gain insight into the plans and methods of their enemies, we too must know the plans and methods of our enemy less we fall victim to his influence.
Series: The Truth of Advent (Part 1) - On this second Sunday of Advent Pastor Terry brings forth a strong message about spiritual captivity. We must Break the chains of the sin that God has forgiven us for as well as forgotten. WE sometimes fail to forget and let those past sins leave our memories. We must break the power of canceled sins.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 5) – In this fifth sermon in the series, we will be moving from apocalyptic and prophetic Scriptures to a portion of narrative from Numbers 13 and 14 that will serve as an example of faithfulness in the face of overwhelming disbelief and unfaithfulness. Caleb and Joshua serve as illustrative examples of why it is that those faithful to God go through difficult times with those who choose to turn away from God. You will learn one of the most important things you can do to serve God faithfully as ever more difficult days come. Finally, you will receive step-by-step instructions that will provide you with you a way to join with a growing number of Christians who desire to be of the greatest use to God in the fulfillment of God's sovereign purposes and plans.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 2) - The literary genre known as "apocalyptic" was introduced in the first sermon (September 27, 2009) of this series. In this second sermon you will learn more about apocalyptic. Ten guidelines (with thanks to Dr. David R. Mains) for understanding apocalyptic are presented and explained. These guidelines will enable you to better understand the meaning of those parts of the Bible that contain the strange symbols, numbers and events that characterize the apocalyptic literary form. You will come to know, too, why God chose apocalyptic to communicate with those who lived at the time the words were written, and why it is important for us to hear what God is saying to us nearly two thousand years later.
