Shift in our world Part 2 of 3 11/22/14

January 30th, 2015

We are living in a time of a great shift in the church where we will witness a modern day reformation. With the increase of people walking away from the church, many believers are looking further into the nature of the gospel and the heart of it’s message. This is causing a re-engaging with those who are outside of the church to hear the gospel in a different light for the first time in their lives. This is causing many Christians to re-look at how we fulfill The Great Commission.

We look at Acts 8 to see how we help shift the church.

Each generation has the opportunity to be like Philip and fulfill the vision God has for them. It’s our job to recognize the time and season we live in, so that we can help facilitate the work God is doing now. It was the destiny of the people of Israel leaving Egypt to enter the promised land and conquering it. It was their stubbornness that forfeited an entire generations destiny (except for Caleb and Joshua.) We are given the same opportunity now.

Kingdom Revolution 1/24/15

January 27th, 2015

Acts 21 and Acts 22

Every great move of God is has been met with resistance. It often has two sides pressing in. Those who are your target audience “the world”, the ones that God is trying to reach, that resists. Those who are suppose to have your back. Those who are on “God’s side” and should be following God’s move but resist it because they are often content with what they have built. You literally can read the struggle between the New Covenant believers and the Old covenant believers. The Law vs The Gospel of Grace. This tension is not relieved until the temple of Jerusalem is finally destroyed. Paul repeatedly tried to reach the Jews to the point of frustration sometimes Acts 19)

We live in a time when the earth groans for the revealing of the sons of God we are a generation of God’s people being equipped to fulfill our destiny.  We live an a time
of such intensity.We support a kingdom of light and truth.

We are the leaders of the revolution.
We are a liability 
We are dangerous

Will we live in such a way that shakes kingdoms and ushers in His reign?

Encounter (1/17/15)

January 19th, 2015

Our calling as Christians is to encounter God through the power of the holy spirit and allow his visible presence to transform our lives. By allowing the holy spirit to move in our lives we build a testimony that others see and are drawn to.  That's evangelism. Encountering him and being transformed.

In Luke 19 we see an encounter with Jesus bring about repentance and reconciliation. In Matthew 26 we read an encounter with Jesus develop intimacy and spring forth ministry naturally.We must learn to leave room for God to move in our lives to build and confirm our faith. His word creates the path we walk to change and transform our community. Christianity is not intended to be lived without the transforming power of the holy spirit encounter.

What has Jesus called us to 12/6/14

January 16th, 2015

Matthew 9:35-37

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

Matthew 14:14
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd; he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Matthew 20:34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.

Advent 12-13-14

January 16th, 2015

In this message we look at Daniel 7:13-28 at the prophetic word of Jesus' birth and reign. These verses build expectation and anticipation of Jesus' coming both then and today. 

We also look at Luke 1 and the song of Zechariah to read  the fulfillment of John's birth and promise. As we prepare to celebrate the fulfillment of God's promise to rescue us.

Has God been a means to an end in our lives? 1/10/15

January 12th, 2015

This week we look at the story of Jacob (Gen  ch:27-30) and David (1 Chronicles ch:16-19) and their relationships with God. One who spent much of his life seeking his own advancement and another who saw God as a prize and not a stepping stone. 

We live in a culture that flashes fame and fortunate at us at every opportunity. Has our faith in God become corrupted by our prison culture?. Or has God become enough for us?
