RESURRECTION POWER - Luke 24 - Acts 1

February 11, 2019

LUKE 24
Jesus walked with the two on the road to Emmaus. They were going home feeling defeated. They tell him their problem and they are puzzled at what they had heard. Jesus was walking with them and they didn't know until he revealed himself as he broke bread with them. They return to Jerusalem.

Jesus finds 10 Disciples behind closed doors and shows them his hands and feet. He has a meal and instructs them to go to Jerusalem and wait for the gift of the Holy Spirit

ACTS 1
He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

Jesus ascends - they watched - the two angels ask, "why are you standing there?"

They to go Jerusalem have a prayer meeting.

Then they have a business meeting where they choose Matthais as the one to take the place of Judas.

Join us next Sunday. We will be preaching verse by verse, chapter be chapter on the book of ACTS. Next Sunday we will begin at chapter 2 verse 1.

Hope to see you there.

Temple of The Holy Spirit

January 13, 2019

If you know Jesus Christ as you savior and Lord, You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit!  Listen to these verses from 1 Corinthians.
1 Cor. 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

This is our opportunity to reach out to others. Let's take this message and make disciples.

Heb. 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. 13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach. 14 For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come. 15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. 16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Blessings to you this day...

GUARD THE GATES - THE STRUGGLE IS REAL

January 6, 2019

We were blessed by a solo by Sydney Johnson accompanied by her grandmother Jan Maser.
She sang Reckless Love. Right after her song you will be hearing a message by Pastor John Massey.

The message is taken from 1 Thessalonians 5:23, Heb. 4:12 and Romans 10:17/18

Using a chart by Clarence Larkin we look at the three parts of man.

Spirit - Soul - Body.

The gates of the body are the five senses: "sight," "smell," "hearing," "taste" and "touch." 

The gates of the soul are: "imagination," "conscience," "memory," "reason" and the "affections."

The sense faculties of the spirit are: "Faith," "Hope," "Reverence," "Prayer," and "Worship." 

Take few minutes to listen to this message to see how these all work together in the believer.

Pray that you are blessed as you listen to the song by Sydney and the message by Pastor John Massey

Blessings to you this day...

Seven Wonders that Jesus did for us!

Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
