Why are we here? What do you think?

There are influences trying to confuse us and lead us on a path that they think are correct … how do we know which way to go? As we focus on the series we are on we have come down to the application of the summer series. We all need purpose and direction and thus the question of how do we find that and come tomorrow morning and let’s study the word together and take a look at that.

10:30 am worship service

There is also a 9:00 am Adult Bible Study and a 10:00 am coffee time  Join Us.

Angels, Demons, and the Holy Spirit – What to Do?

Yes … there is spiritual warfare and yes it involves all of us. Angels are servants of the Lord and the demons are seeking to kill and destroy and fight with God. In the process we believers are attacked and caught. The question – what do we do?

Come and study with us as we explore what God has provided for us so that we can navigate this life and have victory in the spiritual warfare that we are in. Join us on 8/11 for worship and study on Sunday mornings.

Angels, Demons, and the Holy Spirit, Message 3 8/4/2019

Over the last few weeks we have taken a look at the angels and their ministry of service for the Lord. We have examined in Scripture the demons and their desire to be worshiped and to be “like god.” Now we will begin to take a look at the spiritual warfare that we are faced with and how to navigate this life in the midst of all that is going on – thus the examination of the Holy Spirit.

How do we stand firm? How do we stay strong and grow in the faith at the same time deal with the spiritual battle that is before us? This is where we are going … join us and let’s grow in Christ so that we can stay strong in this world though this is not our world.

This is an amazing study and as we study together – let’s grow. If you are looking for a church family, we are the place to be this Sunday, come and check us out. Know that you are welcome!!

Angels, Demons, and The Holy Spirit Message 2 July 21, 2019

Yes, yes … what do angels look like and what is their role? This was some of the questions asked by some of the congregation and that we addressed on Sunday July 21st. In case you missed it a summary will be below but let me invite you for this Sunday … we will look at a few other questions that deal with demons, or in other words – fallen angels. What happened and why? Come and find out at 10:30 am Sunday morning July 28th.

Last week – well we looked at what angels look like and what we see in Scripture is that they are capable of moving between the spiritual realm and the earthly realm and they must be able to change their looks or look like us. How do we know this?

Well, in Hebrews we are told that we should not neglect hospitality to strangers as we might end up entertaining angels unaware. Crazy thought – you may have seen and hung out with an angel. Kind of cool. But you would not have known it so it must be that they can cross over between the realms and they must either look like us or be able to change their appearance to look like us – if not then we would know.

We also discover that they do not marry – at least that is what Jesus said in Matthew 29:30. This does not mean that they are gender-less just means that they did not get marry. Perhaps they are only one gender. All we can say is that we will find out.

Now to the roles of the angels.

Hebrews 1:14 states that they are all ministering spirits that have been “sent to serve” those who are to inherit salvation.  There we have it in summary form. Guardian angel is a legitimate term. They are here to serve believers.

Keep in mind number 1: They are “sent” to serve by God and thus are fellow servants. Therefore we are not to worship them (Colossians 2:18 and Revelation 19:10) and we are not at our beckoning call. They are at God’s beckoning call. They follow God! We read in Scripture that some examples. In Daniel an angel was sent to help Daniel to understand a dream (Daniel 12:1). We read that children have guardian angels that watch over the children (Matthew 18:10).

And number 2: since we are fellow servants we should make it a part of our mission to serve others as the angels do. In Galatians 5:13 we are old to not use our freedom as an “opportunity for the flesh but through love serve one another.” Hebrews 6:10 tells us that God notices when we show our love by “serving the saints.”

The overall point: As the angels were and are to serve God in whatever capacity God calls them to so should we … let’s serve God!

Come this week (July 28th) and watch what happens when we lose this focus – join us.

Angels, Demons, and the Holy Spirit Message 1 July 14th 2019

Let me give you the short version of the message that we did this last Sunday so that if you want to join us this week you will be able to follow with the series. This summer we are looking at some questions of those of the congregation and the first series of questions deals with angels, demons, and the Holy Spirit. This last week was simple – the importance of the subject and how they all fit together.

There is a spiritual realm all around us and we need to keep that in mind. Our text: “Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit … ” (Zechariah 4:6). Victory and the overcoming, thriving spiritual life only happens when we walk in the Lord’s Spirit. The message was an introduction to this short series. This next week (7/21) we will cover the role of the angels and what they look like. They are real! Come and learn with us.

Trivia question: how many angels are mentioned by name in the Bible? And what are they? Join us Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Blessings.

… Of Angels … Of Demons … Of the Spirit

New series for this summer … we are answering questions from some from the congregation and most centered on angels, demons, and the Holy Spirit. We will have a fun ride examining all three areas and seeing how they are all connected. This should be a fun time of looking in God’s Word and growing for the glory of the Lord – join us and look for more posts! We would love to have you with us. Blessings.
