Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 4) – In this fourth sermon we will be returning to Revelation 13, this time with a considered look back at an important period in recent history that serves to show us that, even though we may struggle to believe what the Bible teaches us, the unimaginable and unthinkable will take place. Building upon the previous sermons in the series, you will learn not only what is going to occur, but also why. While the disclosures are disturbing and troubling, you will hear that God has provided faithful followers of the Lord Jesus Christ with certain promises and assurances that will encourage your heart and help you live in and through these difficult days.
Series The Truth of Advent (Part2) - In the first sermon in this Advent series we discovered that Christ came into the world not only to die for our sins, but also to free us from "the power of canceled sin." To dramatize this message, we looked at a clip from a recent presentation of Charles Dickens' beloved classic, "A Christmas Carol," in which Ebenezer Scrooge's deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, makes a night time appearance to Scrooge and warns Scrooge that he must make changes in his life to avoid the painful eternal consequences of his life choices. During this second sermon we see and hear the "Spirit of Christmas Past" remind Scrooge that Scrooge knew the joy of Christmas in his youth. Tragically, Scrooge gave up that joy for the love of material gain and greed. Pastor Terry tells you that God wants you to understand the gift of his Son, Jesus, as God's power to make changes in your life that will enable you to experience the real joy of Christmas as your normal every day experience. The teen Mary, mother of Jesus, God's Savior for the world, shows us how courage is the way to joy. Rediscover the joy of Christmas by facing something painful in your life that can be changed and by seeking God's help in assisting you to act courageously so that it may be transformed, healed and given new life.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 6) – This sixth sermon in the series puts forth the proposition that Christians must join together and commit to specific actions that both call upon God and engage followers of Christ to confront head on the destructive powers and forces that are subtly but surely propelling us to catastrophe. You will hear Pastor Terry warn that, "The 'party' is almost over." This sermon builds upon the foundation of individual response that was introduced in the previous sermon by disclosing seven signs that have characterized previous times of personal and culturally transforming spiritual revival. Jesus' message to the early church located in the city of Laodicea is brought forward as a call to people to unite in inviting Jesus to come into our lives and churches, moving us to change the way we are living so that the classic signs of revival will emerge and result in unprecedented numbers of people turning to God.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 7) The seventh sermon in the series, reveals one more sign to the seven signs of revival that were disclosed and explained in the previous sermon. The Church is weak and impotent in the United States because those professing to be followers of Christ are living as if commitment to Christ may be done as if it were a part-time job. To correct this condition, Christians must embrace and practice the awareness of Christ's "living presence." Pastor Terry lifts up and discusses the critical role of what he calls doing the "homework" of Christian commitment in order to be best prepared to meet the responsibilities of each day and the challenges that are coming in the difficult days ahead.
Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 9) - In the ninth and concluding sermon in this series, Pastor Terry discloses what the Bible tells us about where history is headed and how it will end. Rather than presenting us with an appealing fantastic ending that is the product of a miraculous turn of events, the witness of the Scriptures is that the decisive moment for history's future occurred in the past. The resurrection of Jesus Christ defines and determines how God will triumph in the continuing struggle between good and evil. While there are more than enough reasons to be disheartened by the worsening condition of the world, there is this one reason to hold fast and move forward with the greatest of confidence and hope. The early Church lived by the watchword "Maranatha!" Pastor Terry urges present day followers of Christ to embrace and greet one another with the glorious and uplifting watchword, "The Kingdom comes!"
