DECEMBER 5TH, 12TH AND 19TH
Angels played an important role in the birth of Christ. Who are these creatures called Angels? What do we really know about them? Do Angels have wings? What do they look like? These are just a few of the questions Pastor Barry will answer in this mini series on Angels
12/5/21 Angels: What is Their purpose? In Revelation John writes about a vision he received. In it he witnessed an unfathomable number of angels singing a song of worship to Jesus. The most fundamentally important thing about angels is that they were created by God to serve God and Jesus Christ.
12/12/21 Entertaining Angels Unaware. In this sermon Pastor Barry will be sharing stories he has received from people who believe they have encountered angels.
12/19/21 Do You Have Your Own Guardian Angel? This is one of the questions Pastor Barry will answer as he seeks to separate truth from fiction regarding the role and function of Angels.
12/26/21 Joy to the World. Joy coming into the world is connected to Jesus’ coming into the world, but why do so few experience it and what is it exactly? What did those who experienced great joy in scripture have in common? These are just a few of the questions Pastor Barry will answer in Joy to the World!
01/02/22 Many Happy Returns. Joel 2:12-18. When God’s people in the Old Testament fall away from the Lord He sends His prophets to call them to repentance. There’s a refrain that is repeated over and over again – “Return to Me, Return to the Lord, Let us return, They will return.” Though we break our promises to God, He offers forgiveness and the opportunity to return to Him if we will repent.
“…everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock” Matthew 7:24. Every well-built house must first have carefully designed blueprints, a strong foundation, and a competent builder. In this sermon series Pastor Barry will seek to reignite and strengthen your passion for and commitment to God’s Word by sharing in very practical ways the significance of the Bible and what it means to be “doers” of the Word and not just “hearers” only.
TBD Why You Can Trust the Bible: The Bible is Prophetically Accurate. Ps.119:86 2 Tim. 3:16-17. The Bible is filled with literally hundreds of prophecies where God says, “This is going to happen at such and such a time, in such and such a way.” Hundreds of these prophecies have already been fulfilled, every one of them exactly as God said. Some of them are still yet to be fulfilled. Why can we trust the Bible? Because of its prophetic accuracy. And because the Bible is thematically unified. The Bible has the same theme through the entire book from cover to cover, from Genesis to Revelation. It is the theme of redemption and Jesus the central character.
TBD Why You Can Trust the Bible: It’s Transforming Power . Ps.119:86 2 Tim. 3:16-17. The Bible has been under attack century after century. It is the most despised denied, debated and destroyed book in history, yet it has endured. You can trust the Bible because of its enduring power but even more important is its transforming power. Nothing can change the lives of people like the Bible. Tens of thousands of lives have been changed by it and are still being changed today. Has it changed yours? In this sermon Pastor Barry shares how the Bible can eternally impact your life.
TBD Revive Us Again! Jeremiah 7:3; Acts 3:19. What would need to happen for revival to break out in America? As much as we would like to see that it’s the wrong question. The real question is what would need to happen for revival to break out in my life? In today’s sermon Pastor Barry shares the path one must follow for spiritual renewal to occur.
TBD Take This Job and Love It. Genesis 24:10-20. Rebekah was an ordinary person who did an ordinary thing in an extraordinary way. In this Sermon Pastor Barry shares the lessons we learn from her example about labor, your job and a godly work ethic.
TBD The Demonic and Devine. Mark 5:1-20; Ephesians 6:12. Satan and his demons are real and ultimately responsible for the condition of our world today. We are in a war. The battle is for the heart and soul of our nation, and all humankind. This battle is not fought with tanks and fighter jets for it is not a battle of flesh and blood but of “principalities and powers”. In Mark chapter five Jesus confronts the problem of demons and demon possession head on. It’s a case study of the power of evil in the life of one who has completely relinquished control to evil.
TBD Relentless Restlessness. Hebrews 11:8-10. Do you ever feel restless, but you can’t quite figure out what’s causing it? We often think it’s a physical problem but sometimes, maybe even most times it’s a spiritual problem. In today’s sermon Pastor Barry examines the life of one from scripture who was restless – Abraham. God put a desire in Abraham’s heart to live for something more than what this world has to offer. Abraham learned that people who live by faith are folks who have to settle down to NOT being settled down. “By faith he made his home in the promised land, like a stranger in a foreign country…” Are you restless because you know this world is not your home? Or are you restless because you don’t know this world is not your home? Either way that relentless restlessness is a longing for heaven. How do you get there? The same way Abraham did. Jesus said, “Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
