"Live in such a way that you rejoice over the fall of Babylon rather than fear it."
The second section of Revelation contains haunting symbols. Beasts, bowls, and a place called Babylon all find climax in a war (Armageddon). Surrounding the ominous illusions is a life changing message. "...the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings." This is a series of sermons on Revelation 12-19 and how you can share in Jesus' victory.
Opinions are everywhere. In a world full of internet bloggers it is difficult to determine what is true and what is not. As Chad Harms preaches through the book of 2 Peter in the series “Vision” we begin to see ways that we can determine truth (Pete calls it “knowledge”) in a world that makes it difficult. Peter refers to these knowledge determiners in terms of eyesight or vision. This sermon series helps us discover knowledge in a dimly lit world.
Communion, also known as The Lord’s Supper, is often celebrated. Despite this, it seems that many people have a very limited understanding of what it is and why they do it. This sermons is about the multi-faceted meanings of The Lord’s Supper.
Have you ever wished you could experience God? Maybe you were facing a difficult decision and you desperately desired an answer from the all-knowing. Perhaps you had experienced a great tragedy and you longed for the loving embrace of the one who is love. Or maybe, you simply felt in your spirit that something was missing and you thought that God’s nearness could fill the void. For those of you who have ever wished to see, feel, or hear from God, but have been left wanting, this series is for you. This year we commemorate the week traditionally called Epiphany by examining the biblical concept of seeking an appearance or manifestation of God. What we will see is that God’s presence is best found when waiting for him.
Every year during the Christmas season the message from pastors and churches is the same: Make this Christmas about Jesus. But, no matter how cute the cliche – think “Jesus is the reason for the season” or “Keep Christ in Christmas” – doing so proves difficult or unimportant to almost everyone. Between the cooking, decorating, shopping, and family gatherings, little time or energy is left for Jesus. Besides, what does it even mean to make Christmas about a baby that lived almost 2,000 years ago? In the story of the magi (also known as “three kings” or “wise men”) we discover the true value of Christmas and find compelling reasons and tangible ways we can absolutely make this Christmas about Jesus.
