Palm Sunday - The Triumphant Entry

Palm Sunday - The Triumphant Entry

April 14, 2019

Matthew 21:1-11 / Mark 11:1-11 / Luke 19:28-44 / John 12:12-19
All 4 Gospels tell of  the Announcement of the Messiah! Jesus rides in on the foal of a donkey. The Coming King Zecheriah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you;He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.

Jesus rides into the city, goes to the temple and takes His place as the High Priest of our lives. He clears the temple of the money changers and makes His Father's House a house of prayer. If the people ceased to praise Him the rocks would have cried out. 

“But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignantand said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise’? ”” (Matthew 21:15–16 NKJV) 

(Psalm 118:24–26 NKJV) “This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.” 

Blessings to you this day...  - Pastor John Massey 

Be Still And Let God Love You

Be Still And Let God Love You

April 7, 2019

Pastor Roger Baublit ministered the Word of God to us today. His message speaks about slowing down and taking time to be still before the Lord. 

Psalm 4:1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. 2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah. 3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. 4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Psa. 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

John 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Barnabas vs Anaias & Sapphira

Barnabas vs Anaias & Sapphira

March 31, 2019

Acts 4:12 to Acts 5:16

Looking at what Barnabas had done, Ananias and Sapphira conspired to say that they gave all the proceeds from selling their property when they held part of it back. Trying to look good in front of the people they let pride and greed enter in. “But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”” (Acts 5:3–4 NKJV) 

Ananias fell dead. Sapphira gave the same answer and fell dead. Don't lie to The Holy Spirit. 

Many others in the old testament didn't do as they should and were smitten by God. Listen to this message and you will hear about them too.

At the close of this message we go to 1 Thessalonians chapter 5. Listen to the final challenge. “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23–24 NKJV)

Look What The Lord Has Done

Look What The Lord Has Done

March 17, 2019

Today we are looking at the scene in Acts 3 and 4. Peter and John found the crippled beggar. Spoke to him! Silver and gold have I none, such as I have give I unto thee. In the Name of Jesus, stand up and walk. Peter preaches and challenges the Israelites that this shouldn't be a strange thing. The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob has done this miracle. God promised that the Holy Spirit would be poured out. The Prophets spoke of it. What you are witnessing was promised! While Peter was speaking the Sadducees showed up and didn't like what they were witnessing. Peter and John along with the healed man spent the night in custody. The next day Peter defended and challenged the priests. The priests told them to never preach about Jesus. Peter told them that we cannot stop telling others what he and John as seen and heard! Repentance is the answer. 

Peter and John returned to the rest of the church and petitioned the Lord to give them the boldness to preach about Jesus. The place where they were was shaken and they went forth with great boldness preaching Christ! Seeing many miracles and many coming to the Lord!

5000 were added to the church at this setting.

Read Acts 3:11 - Acts 4:33

Acts 3 - Lame Man Healed - Opportunity for Ministry

March 3, 2019

Peter & John going to the Temple to pray. The crippled beggar healed. Peter preaches about the Name of Jesus! Repentance is necessary to enter God's Kingdom.

Principles:  • God works through his people to accomplish miraculous results, both physically and spiritually.
• People are amazed when they see God’s power in action.
• God’s work in the world gives his people opportunity to minister and proclaim his message.
• The Christian message begins and ends in the name and person of Jesus Christ, God’s righteous Servant.
• Some ministry opportunities come when we least expect them and have not programmed them into our lives.

Application:  • Be ready for any opportunity for ministry God may put in your path.
• Don’t be afraid to speak boldly in the name of Jesus.
• Never draw attention or acclaim to yourself as a Christian.
• Thank God daily for all the great blessings you have in Christ.
• Look for the return of the One who waits in heaven until God will restore everything.

Open your hearts, listen to the Holy Spirit as He speaks to you about ministry opportunities!

Blessings to you this day...

ADORED - National WM Day

ADORED - National WM Day

February 26, 2019

Pastor Evelyn Massey blessed us with this message about how Adored we are by God. She speaks how God blessed Hagar in Genesis 16:13-14 New Living Translation (NLT) 13 Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.”She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” 14 So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered.

God saw and blessed her in her time of need. In the New Testament we find in Mark 14:41-44 that Jesus watched and gave a message to the disciples that he sees beyond what others see. A widow came to give her all.... Jesus sees your heart today. He knows where you are right now. You truly are standing on Holy Ground. Jesus gave His all for you!!!

Mark 12:41-44 The Message (MSG) 41-44 Sitting across from the offering box, he was observing how the crowd tossed money in for the collection. Many of the rich were making large contributions. One poor widow came up and put in two small coins—a measly two cents. Jesus called his disciples over and said, “The truth is that this poor widow gave more to the collection than all the others put together. All the others gave what they’ll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn’t afford—she gave her all.”

Take a few minutes and listen to this message. Sing with us as we sing songs of Worship to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Blessings to you this day...

RESURRECTION POWER - Luke 24 - Acts 1

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.

Pastor John
