By Pastor Glenn Pease In the 1925 Rose Bowl game Notre Dame beat Stanford 27 to 10 in spite of the fact that Standford made the most first downs. Pop Warner said his team should be considered the winner in spite of the score, and Rockne replied, "Right, and next summer we'll decide baseball games by…

The Gospel of Luke
"The King is coming" is the urgent message for the world - but the king comes offering peace; while the movement announcing his coming begins with only a few, many will respond as it multiplies. Those who reject it have been warned - they are rejecting God himself. Rejoice: Jesus reveals God and offers peace with him to the weak not the wise.
Today we are going to talk about two main ideas. The Kingdom of God and the glory of God. In talking about the Kingdom of God it is important to realize that the Scriptures talk about two aspects of the Kingdom of God. First there is the Universal Kingdom of God. The Universal Kingdom is the dominion…

The world usually operates under a very simple principle. Adin Ballou, a nineteenth-century American pacifist and abolitionist, put it this way: “might makes right.” In logic the same approach is called argumentum ad baculum, which means, “Do what I say or I’ll hit you with my stick!” When this is the…
Christians are often compared to butterflies, transformed from the state of caterpillars. However, can butterflies regress to caterpillars? Can Christians regress to the idolatry of worldly politics and ideologies? If we are not good stewards of the kingdom, we may regress, just as the chief priests and Pharisees did. On this Christ the King Sunday, we look at a scene of Jesus' trial from the dimension of stewardship. Enjoy!

Introduction: Luke 22:14-27— It’s almost frightening to think that after Jesus has poured three years of His life into these men; after they have seen the character of Jesus on display in almost every conceivable circumstance; that now, at the final hours before His betrayal, arrest, and crucifixion,…

Many people are struggling to find purpose and meaning in their lives because they have limited their life to the few years we have on earth. When we live in the reality of the everlasting kingdom of God our life takes on a whole new meaning and purpose that extends into eternity.
Discovering the Church
The kingdom of God comes into being wherever the kingly authority of God is acknowledged. Although God is always sovereign, Scripture looks to a future “realm” or “reign” of salvation. This has come in Christ and yet will come in its fulness only when Jesus Christ returns.

January 10, 2015 Read Lu 14:15-24 – One of the great football coaches (I forget which – maybe Lombardi) saw an article one morning that called him “great.” Taken with his own press, he looked into a mirror and asked his wife, “How many great coaches do you think there are?” Her response: “One less than…
Misplaced Priorities “Thus says the Lord of hosts: These people say the time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the Lord .” “These People” (verse 2) Not “my people” Devine rebuke. This is not going to be a good message. “Thus says the Lord of hosts: These people say the time has not yet come to…
The Spirit of Elijah/Elisha
Pastor Dr. Harold Wedderburn • FMM • Sermon • • 154 views • 1:12:36
What spirit are you harboring in your heart? The spirit of jezebel or the Spirit of Elijah? The jezebel spirit will tear up a church and if we do not know what is making you dead, how do you know what it takes to make you alive? Elisha knew, and in that moment he dropped everything for the call from God. When God calls you respond! Respond boldly and do not worry what others say or think because it is God that matters.

For the next few weeks, I’ve decided to make a quick study of the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah is a book about building. It therefore teaches us how to serve God. However, before we begin Nehemiah, it would probably be a good idea to review Old Testament history so that we can understand exactly where…

The Power of the Gospel, a Spiritual light expels the darkness and reveals men's hearts. When the light of God comes in nothing is hidden. Everything will be revealed. If you embrace Jesus message more will be added to you! We must Sow seed as a farmer does, the Holy Spirit is in charge of the growth, and eventually there will be a Harvest. The Mustard seed is a reflection of small beginnings , but something that gradually has remarkable growth. it wraps up with Jesus privately explaing everything to His Disciples. Clearly to me Jesus was teaching the crowd to share about their encounter with God, spreading the word of God, proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior , and encouraging them that what they were apart of was bigger then anything they could imagine.

Introduction On Wednesday, 19 year old Nikolas Cruz walked into his former high school in Parkland, FL, and pulled the fire alarm. As students and teachers exited in mass because of the fire alarm, he opened fire on them with an AR-15 rifle, shooting them like they were meaningless pawns on a video game.…

Why did Jesus come? It is a kind of special Sunday today – because it is Christmas! And it is kind of a special Christmas because this year it falls on a Sunday; so, we can meet together and celebrate Jesus’ birth! I know, we could do that any year – in fact when I was a kid we did. The fellowship I…
Many years ago my family took a vacation out to Colorado. And my favorite part about Colorado was the mountains! It was fun to just get in the car and drive. It was mesmerizing. My wife and I are sitting in the front seat of the car just awestruck by the beauty and the majesty and the shear enormity…
