If read carefully the Scriptures tell us that the star leading the wise men to Jesus went out for a time leading the Magi to consult Herold and his court to the whereabouts of the new born King before reappearing and guiding their way once again. Why? In this special Christmas sermon Pastor Doug explains what God's purpose in doing this was as well as how it affects us today.
What does it mean to be blessed and highly favored by God? Is it even possible? In this message Pastor Doug examines the life of one person that the Word tells us was blessed and highly favored: Mary the mother of Jesus.
There are many misconceptions regarding salvation. In this message Pastor Doug debunks some of the more common (and dangerous) of these misconceptions and shines a light on what the Word actually says regarding this extremely important topic.
Fear and anxiety run rampant in our world today. It could easily be seen as one of the most affecting problems we face daily. In this message Pastor Doug shows what the Word says about handling fear and anxiety.
The world has a lot of ideas about marriage; what it's for, how to conduct yourself in it, even questions about it's actual worth. However God's Word outlines very different ideas about marriage. In this message Pastor Doug explains what the Word says about marriage's purpose, how we should behave within our marriages, and the true value of marriage in God's eyes.
A few weeks ago during our study of, "The Sermon on the Mount", we saw that many people miss the Narrow Way to God in His Plan of Salvation because they are led astray by so many false teachings in these last days. And how our self-focused world is so good at teaching these false doctrines which are quickly swallowed down by many who do not want to hear the Truth. But also by many that are sadly victims through ignorance, not knowing enough to discern what they are hearing.
How many times have you heard the term used by a TV evangelist or pastor, "Highly Favored?!" Unfortunately, it is often followed by a plea for us to pledge great sums of money so that we may, in return, have God's favor! Or it is used by a smug Christian to show how they have such grand standings before our God...That He will grant special status for them to have a happy, healthy and materially blessed life! Rarely have I personally seen this title before God, and all that it entails...BIBLICALLY INVESTIGATED AND EXPANDED UPON!
D.O.R. is a term used by the Navy Seals, the Navy Flight School, and the Officer Candidate School...It means Drop On Request! When a candidate has reached their limit and cannot handle the training anymore...
And they are ready to resign their position...To admit they can't handle the load! They ring a designated bell three times to signify their decision!
Today we are going to cover an area of our lives which Satan uses to stop our walk with Jesus—dead in it's tracks and often keep our entire daily lives in defeat and misery—while we live our lives in unsuspecting ignorance that it’s him all along. Satan and his entire hoard work skillfully and passionately to trip us up, steal or joy, and make us completely useless to God. One of the biggest and most successful battlefields which Satan is absolutely destroying us on today is in our marriages and intimate relationships.
In the final part of the series on the Sermon on the Mount Pastor Doug goes over the grave warnings Jesus gave to those who would knowing mislead his sheep; those who would be wolves in sheep's clothing.
