Discovering the Church
Barry G. Johnson, Sr. • Sermon • • 2,336 views • 47:10
God judges the world by identifying and condemning sin and by vindicating and rewarding the righteous. God exercises temporal judgment on the world and on his people; final judgment will take place when Jesus Christ returns.
The Bible Doesn't Say That
Rev. Buford Edwards II • Sermon • • 2,095 views
The idea that God will not give us more than WE can hadle is a lie. It leads us to think that we are self-reliant. God gives us more than we can handle on our own, but through Him we can do all things and handle anything!

Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me." Every…

For many people, their praise towards God matches their mood. When things are going well, they are happy and feel that God must be blessing them, if indeed they stop to think about him at all. But when life gets difficult, they are more than just naturally upset—they are convinced God must not be as…

In our daily walk we hear all sorts of noise from the world. Much of the noise is depressing and if not countered it can bring you down. The worst is that you are not good enough for God to use. But this is a lie bron and spread by the master liar. God uses our failures to boost others lives as well as our own life and walk.
We are studying the Gospel of John and are currently in chapter 5. Please open your bibles, and we will read this together; today from the NASB. After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew…

Numbers 23:19 "God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?" (NASB) I consider myself to be an honest man. Partly because it is the right thing to be, but also because I agree with Mark…

Moses was a wise teacher of God's truth. First he reviewed what the Lord had done for Israel (Deut. 1-4) and reminded the people of God's mercy and goodness. Then he reaffirmed the basic principles of God's Law (Deut. 5-6), what we know as the Ten Commandments (10:4). In chapters 6 and 7, Moses discussed motives for obedience and explained why the people should honor God's laws. He wanted the nation's obedience to be based on spiritual principles, not just personal opinions, and to be encouraged by the right motives. Only after Moses had laid this strong foundation did he apply God's commandments to specific areas of Israel's life. God gave His law to build the people individually as well as the nation collectively. How could over 2 million people live together and work together, let alone fight the enemy together, unless they had rules and regulations to govern them? Israel's civic peace and general welfare depended on the people respecting the law and obeying it. Unfortunately, over the years, some of the religious leaders added so many traditions to God's law that the people felt like they were wearing a galling yoke (Acts 15:10; Gal. 5:1). The Law was also meant to reveal God and draw the people closer to Him. If Israel was to be a holy people and a kingdom of priests (Ex. 19:1-8), they needed a holy law to guide them. Certainly God was concerned about the external conduct of His people, but He was also concerned that their hearts be devoted to Him. When you read Psalm 119, you discover what the law of God meant to Jewish people who were spiritually minded and devoted to the Lord in their hearts. They saw God's righteous law, not as a heavy yoke, but as honey (v. 103), light (v. 105), a treasure (vv. 14, 72, 127, 162), freedom (v. 45), and a source of great joy (v. 14). They delighted in the law and meditated on it (vv. 15-16, 23-24, 47-48, 77-78; see 1:1-3). Yes, the Ten Commandments were engraved on tables of stone, but the spiritual Jew also had the Word hidden in his heart (119:10-11). One of the key themes in Deuteronomy 6-7 is motivation for obedience. These two chapters answer the question, "Why should we obey God's Word in a world where most people ignore it or deliberately disobey it?" Moses explained four fundamental motives for obedience.

Hebrews: Jesus is Better
Intro? In order for us to live by faith, we really have to understand God’s faithfulness. So I’d like us to begin there as the foundation for what we see in our verses in Hebrews today.
