This Week's Sermon ( 10-17-17 )

" But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.  Mark 13:32-33


" But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:1-4

There is so much going on in the world these days that I have to talk about the return of Jesus.

There has recently been hurricanes of catastrophic proportion that has excelled any hurricane that has happened in the past.

There was a hurricane that hit Ireland recently, where there has never been a hurricane ever in history.

There was a fire in California recently that was the worst in California ever...even though fires are common in that state. 

Many church people are now wondering what is going on. They are wondering if Jesus might be returning soon.

I heard a sermon this past Sunday in which the pastor admitted that most of his life he has always quoted the verse;

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.  "   Mark 13:32

not taking signs of the return of Jesus seriously.

But he admits, now, he is wondering if Jesus is coming back.

Jesus did say;

" And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; "   Luke 21:35

While there will be catastrophic events take place to indicate the return of Jesus, we still have to remember one thing that Paul said;

" For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:3

Even though, along with catastrophic events as we have been witnessing lately, this " peace and safety " is also prophesied to be part of the last days before Jesus returns and this prophecy of " peace and safety " has not happened yet.

According to Jesus it will be during this time that many christians will be slack, thinking the Lord delayeth His coming. 

It will be during this time of " peace and safety " that christians will lose sight of the return of Jesus and focus on worldly things. 

During this " peace and safety " is more than likely when Jesus will return in the rapture but we must also understand that the rapture is also a prophetic sign of the return of Jesus when He returns literally to the earth to fight in the battle of Armageddon and set up His thousand year kingdom here on earth.

Keep your faith in Jesus no matter what happens.

Jesus is returning soon.

This Week's Sermon ( 11-1-16 )

" I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.  "   Psalm 139:14-18

All my life I have never really understood in depth what David meant when he said;

" for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: "

I was recently in a dermatologist's office and while I was waiting I looked at the skin charts he had on the wall. 

I was surprised to see so many layers in the human skin. I never knew how complex the human skin is.

He also had a chart of a single strand of human hair. I did not know how detailed a human hair is.

When the doctor came in I said to him - " God really put a lot into creating us, didn't He. "

His response was - " And that is not the half of it. "

Only God could come up with all the detailed intricacy in our design.

This is why Solomon said;

" The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. "   Proverbs 3:19

My friend, God is more than amazing.

Some day soon, because of my faith in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, I will meet Him in person.

I can't wait.

This Week's Sermon ( 10-11-16 )

" In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God. 

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. "   John 1:1-14

I love to watch the Moon grow from a sliver to a full moon.

I look up at the Moon, the stars and planets, and congratulate Jesus for the beautiful job He did in creating everything.

As John said about Jesus;

" All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. "

I look up at the Moon and ask Jesus what He thought of the Moon as He would look up at it while He was here on planet earth 2000 years ago.

He probably thought to Himself, I remember when I created that.

I love this passage in the book of John;

" But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 

And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 
And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 

And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 
Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. "   John 20:11-17

Mary recognized Jesus whe He called her by name.

My friend, someday, Jesus will call you and me by name.

Jesus not only created the Moon but He also created Mary...and you and me.

My friend, Jesus is incredible.

There are no words to describe Him.

Praise Jesus forever!

Always believe in Jesus.

This Week's Sermon ( 10-5-16 )

" For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; "   Philippians 1:29

" I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. "   Philippians 4:12

" Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. "   1 Peter 4:19


Jesus never promised that following Him would be an easy row to hoe.

It is easy to say " I'm blessed and highly favored " in the Lord, when you are wealthy, living in a mansion, and have no physical ailments. 

The apostle Paul, who had a relationship with the Lord, knew better. This is why Paul said he lived both in wealth and poverty and could live in both through Christ who strengthened him.

" I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. "   Philippians 4:12-13

My friend, the Holy Bible does not contradict itself. While we are rich in Christ Jesus, blessed, highly favored, and have inherited all things from Him who died for us, the Bible also says we will suffer hardship.

This is why we need to continue in the faith of the gospel of Jesus Christ and keep our heart and mind focused on Him...to the end.

When you hear of bad things happening throughout the world, we need to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are experiencing these bad things.

There is a Hurricane in the Atlantic heading for our east coast.

God has people in this hurricane who need our prayers. We need to acknowledge that these things do happen, even to God's people.

Don't live in denial.

However, even if we go through bad times, always remember that the Lord is good.

No matter what happens to us, the Lord is good.

Keep your faith in Jesus.
