The world has not seen the last of Jesus Christ. He came once before. More than 200 scriptures spoke of His first coming and over 300 speak of His second coming. Join us as we look at Daniel and learn about Jesus’s second coming and how all the world events going on today are leading up to it.
Knowing God. Do you know about God, or do you know God? Join us as we look at Daniel and learn how there is a difference and what we can do to know God and how much our attitude comes into play.
Hey Fathers House,
I recently heard about a church pastor who was in the baptismal pool at their church. Apparently, he liked to talk on a plugged-in microphone to introduce each person being baptized. Sadly, he dropped the microphone. He was electrocuted. The only person more shocked than the congregation was the pastor.
Just a reminder that this Sunday night we are going to have a worship night at the church starting at 5:00 pm that will include communion and baptisms along with the normal agenda of worshipping the Lord and enjoying His presence. If any of you wish to be baptized, this Sunday would be a great time for that. We believe that baptism is important; important enough that our Lord Jesus Himself was baptized to “fulfill all righteousness.” After Jesus was baptized, the heavens were opened to Him and the Spirit of God came upon Him in the form of a dove.
I’m not saying that a dove will land on you when you are baptized, but there is a cementing of faith that seems to happen. Baptism is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It is also a picture that you are dying to the “old man” and living as a new creation in Christ. Baptism in and of itself does not save people from their sins. If it did, all we would need to do is be baptized at birth and we could live the rest of our lives the way we want to. When you enter the waters of baptism, you are saying, “Hey, I’m under new management. I have a new boss, a new owner. He calls the shots now. I’ve left the past behind.”
It has been a fun couple of months as we have finished up with the book of Ephesians. Several people made decisions to follow Christ and among other things, we learned about spiritual warfare and anger management from this amazing epistle.
I’ve begun a new series on Daniel. I encourage you to read up and become familiar with the book. We may not all agree on the application of the end-time prophecies that many associate with the book of Daniel, but one thing should not shock any of us. Jesus is coming back!
What’s in a name? Learn how the word name is mentioned over 1,000 times in the Bible and how giving a name to anyone or anything is the same as owning or controlling it. Join us as we look at Daniel 1:1-8 and see how the world is taught to live in fear and how we can overcome this!
