With everything good and bad that can be said about organized Christianity – do you want to be called a “Christian”? Several have said they prefer other labels so that they’re not lumped in with Christians who don’t keep the sabbath or who keep pagan holidays, etc., not to mention the sometimes violent and sordid historical record of traditional Christianity. So in this teaching we examine both sides of this discussion. What did the early followers of Christ call themselves? What did Paul and Peter have to say about being called a “Christian”? And what IS a true Christian or true follower of Christ? Wherever you are on this subject, I hope you will hear and study this vital message. It WILL make you think. I’d love your feedback.

Or can we trash those in authority -- on social media? We’re coming into very dangerous times in the last days of this age. Those in leadership positions in the very last days are prophesied to do unspeakable things to God’s children especially. Do we have to respect leaders no matter what? What about the president, our governor, congressmen, the police, teachers, bosses and others in authority? Are we allowed by scripture to be rude to them or say disrespectful things on Facebook about them? What if they’re acting like criminally or dishonorably? What if we’re being wrongfully sued or attacked – what recourse do we have as Christians or believers? Do those in authority first have to EARN our respect before God requires us to give them honor and respect? What does God’s word say about all this?

1 John 4:17b (HOW we live by the faith of Yeshua)
Last time we covered that we must not just live by our own faith, but by our Savior’s faith, HIS faith. How do we do that? How do we look to HIM as the Author and finisher of our faith? This sermon goes into HOW to live by His faith. What’s the KEY understanding we need in order to harness his faith? What does it mean to be “in him” and how does that help us live by and through HIS faith? Also: how focusing on our sins and weaknesses just makes them worse, and on what/whom we should be focusing instead to be victorious over self and sin.

We all know that faith is important and I know we all try to live by faith. But don’t we often feel something is missing? Don’t you sometimes feel your faith is not as powerful as you think it should be? This sermon covers what faith is, WHY we must have the right faith, whose faith we must have and why, and how to grow in this powerful faith. Our focus here is also on the fact that LIVING by faith is not just for the tough times of our lives – but 24/7, all the time. We also cover how to deal with those times when we don’t get the answers we were praying and hoping for. May you be blessed by this message.

We're back from the Feast of Tabernacles. Is it going to be business as usual, or will we have "post feast blues" - or will you let this period after the Feast be a springboard to a closer walk with God? This very practical sermon examines Nehemiah's Feast of Tabernacles and shows us what they did right after their powerful Feast (Nehemiah 7, 8, 9, 10), as an example for us to follow.

Day of Remembrance plus shofar blasts, shouts of joy and alarm.
Usually called “Feast of Trumpets”, or “Yom Teruah” in the original Hebrew, which means “day of blasts, joyful shouts and acclamation”. Why it’s often called “Feast of TRUMPETS”. It is the first of the last four appointed times to meet with Yahweh in the Fall. It is called the Day of Remembrance and a memorial of “teruah”. Find out what else happened on this day and what this holyday could be picturing ahead for us. Why we don’t call it “Rosh Hashanah”. All this and more.

Our God’s politeness.
Does Almighty God have to ever say “please”? Does he ever say “please” when speaking with mortals? This message will focus on a side of our God that you may not have heard much about – when even God says please. Yes, it’s in your Bible, though unfortunately camouflaged by most Bibles translated into English.

We’ve started the 6th month of the Hebrew calendar called “Elul” – roughly mid-August to mid September on our western calendar this year 2015. It’s ripe with meaning. This sermon was first given in 2013. Though the dates are slightly different for this year 2015 than when I gave the sermon in 2013, the points remain the same. After Elul is the month of Tishri (or Tishrei), the Hebrew 7th month, in which all the final 4 holydays of Yahweh appear. But let’s first focus on the month we’re in now and it’s meanings. What happened in this vital month? What does it tell us prophetically? This short 43 minute message will help you be properly prepared for the Fall festivals – the Divine appointments -- coming up.

Does it matter? When does human life begin?

We believers must know what God’s word says on this. We must not remain silent. This message covers topics like “celebrities” who were almost aborted, what God says about the value of unborn babies, will aborted fetuses/babies have a future with God?, and what if YOU have had an abortion? All this and more. Spread the word about this message.

How do you view immigrants – whether they are here legally or illegally? How should you view them? America is a magnet for immigrants. Over 1 million legal immigrants are accepted into the USA each year. On top of that are millions more “undocumented workers or aliens” who cross our open borders each year. A couple Presidential candidates are making this a big issue. With all that going on, we felt this was a topic that deserves to be reposted on our site. What does God’s word say about borders, border guards, deportation, affirmative action and more? Does God favor the Jews? What color is God? How should we interact with people from other countries who speak other languages?
