Why does God allow natural Disasters? Introduction There is no doubt that reading accounts of how people have been affected by famines, earthquakes, floods, Tsunamis, eruptions, epidemics, storms and landslides makes for harrowing reading. It is almost impossible (at least for me) to not find yourself…

OUR RESPONSE IN HARD TIMES - PASSING THE TEST Last week we started to look at our response in the hard times - not God’s response - ours. And we started the journey by looking at how Isaac handled the famine (the hard times) in his life! Genesis 26:12 ... Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same…

Life is full of difficult decisions. Naomi and Ruth had some really difficult decisions to make. Yet, by staying true to who they were, they were able to bring about blessings that no one could have imagined. I would have been difficult -- but without this story, we don't get David to become King, and we don't get Jesus to be born in Israel. Sometimes making the hardest decisions brings the biggest blessings.

Before we begin tonight’s look at the book of Revelation, I think it would be helpful to give you a quick recap on everything we’ve looked at so far. In Revelation chapter one we looked at how Christ is the focal point of the book, and how He should be the focus of our lives, as well. Then we looked…

Famine [Amos 8:11-13] יהוה is describing the terrible times of judgement that will come. Not only will there be "natural" disasters, great misery, distress and bitterness; but there will be a spiritual dearth.

Although the book of Nehemiah is ostensibly historical, it is also eminently practical. Nehemiah has assessed problems, planned responses, faced opposition and handled discouragement. At each point, he has demonstrated absolute faithfulness to the Word of God. Chapter 5 introduces another practical lesson:…
The book of Ruth is a delight: a short, punchy story of faith and courage in the face of difficulty, rewarded with an amazing happily-ever-after ending. Who could want more? But what does it have to do with us? How could we learn from such a simple tale? Let's dig into the first chapter of Ruth to find just how similar the lives of the ancients were to ours, and how much we can learn from them.

We don’t know exactly when during this period Ruth lived, but we may be able to at least put her life in the second half of the period due to the genealogy that closes the book. Many assume…

Pastor Jayson Workman • Jackson Creek Fellowship Church • Sermon • • 8 views • 26:01
Listen this week as Pastor Jayson speaks about how God used a famine to increase the faith of a prophet and a widow and how He used their circumstances to then overcome their fear and their faith.
Since the Coronavirus pandemic started, have you given any thought as to how it equates to diseases and pestilences found in the Bible? One thing is certain: the plagues and famines of old were more than just a health crisis to be dealt with medically and socially. They were much more serious – as they always carried with them great spiritual and consequential devastation. We’ll learn that when God unleashed a famine or brought forth pestilence – He meant business. "PPPF" Tune in!!
The second coming of Christ is proceeded by increasing calamities (wars, distress, disaster) so Jesus teaches His people not to be caught off guard by His coming but to prepare for it and not to be afraid of these events.
