Learn about the incredible vision of Zechariah in chapter four of his prophecy. See the Menorah in a different way that Moses ever saw it! Celebrate God's grace and the continual supply of the Holy Spirit for His people!
Salvation is going to come to Israel one day and it could be in the very near future; but first, God has to do something for them before that can take place. What is it and how does that relate to me? Listen and learn about what God is going to do for Israel and what He can do for you!
Does God still have Israel as the "apple of His eye?" Absolutely. Listen and learn what God reveals to Zechariah in his second and third visions.
1. Jesus is the True Vine: and His Father is the Vinedresser ● The last “I am” statement by Jesus ● What Israel could not be Jesus is… ● The Father judges those who bear no fruit ● The Father purifies those who do bear fruit 2. Jesus is the Vine: and we are the branches ● Abide in Christ as He abides in us: to bear much fruit ● Apart from Jesus we can do nothing ● Pray with confidence: by abiding in Christ as His word abides in us ● Glorify the Father by bearing much fruit as Christ’s true disciples
Are God’s promises to ethnic Jews relevant for the global church today? Even if you don’t know anyone of Jewish background, you should care about God’s promises given to Israel. Throughout the history of the church, many people have questioned how they should relate to Jews. Romans 11.25-32 clarifies this mystery and reminds us of the powerful hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The widespread rejection of Jesus by Jews in the 1st century lead to misconceptions among new Gentile Christians that God had no further use for ‘the chosen people’. Paul makes it clear that God’s purposes for Jews remain, but he also reminds Gentile Christians of the danger of the sin of pride --- the same sin that sunk Israel in unbelief. Paul’s reminder to the Romans also shows how God, the Vinedresser, has power to graft, prune and regraft as he pleases.
Pastor Michael concludes his series on Stand Firm by teaching the upcoming Shemitah Year and the possible collapse of the US economy among other prophetical events coming in September.
Our lives at times can seem meaningless. But Paul reminds us that the sovereign God has cosmic purposes, and our stories are shaped by God’s designs. Israel’s story was shaped this way. And so too are the lives of every individual in this world. Our destinies are in God’s hand. Will we look to him for grace? Will we look to God's Messiah?
