Ctrl+Alt+Delete

Yep, that’s what I preached this morning! Have you ever wanted to start all over again? Ever felt like you NEED to start all over?

The Psalmist did… at the very end of Psalm 139 he cried out to God to Search, Try, and Lead him.

“Control Alt Delete”

“A testimony worth repeating” is from tonight’s service. It was a very refreshing service. At the end of the message, people began to testify. For at least another 20 minutes folks were testifying of salvation, blessing, and all around goodness of God.

 

This was a great day in the Lord!

When Your Song Returns

In March, the Lord gave me a message to encourage me. It did, and He impressed me to share with the Church. Someone reminded me of that message last Sunday and the Lord again impressed me to share with the World.

This is a two part message, so please listen to both messages. I’m sure you will be blessed as I have.

“When Your Song Returns!” Part 2

A Place Called Hell

Sunday was our Youth Sunday. We had our young folks take care of the singing, teaching, announcments and other things. They did an excellent job, I wish everyone could see them.
I felt led to have Bro. Pete Daniels come and preach for us. He is in his 60's and has had a rough life away from God, He got right years ago, and just recently has surrendered to the call to preach.
Sunday morning he preached "A Place Called Hell", as simple as it may sound to our ears, the message is real, relevant, and needed in our day and time.
Sunday night he preached again, he didn't really give a title so for posting sake I have tried to title it myself, he preached around this thought "Whosoever".

I hope you enjoy these messages, and please pray for our church, the internet ministry and for the lost that are wandering without hope.

This weekend's messages

I almost didn't get to preach last night... wouldn't hve surprised if I didn't. God's been blessing our little church. It seems like we have more praise services, and worship services than anything right now.
No doubt preaching is always welcome, and very much needed, in fact it is considered a necessity, however, right now God is blessing, so we're gonna take what we can get while we can...Can I get an AMEN?

So, here the run down form the services yesterday. The morning message was "A Trophy of Grace", I got to use props, I love to use visual illustrations, they seem to get everyones attention and keep it.
God bless one of my young men in the church Zach, he always get's picked on, he got drenched with water yesterday morning.

Last night was a little different, we had great singing and a moving of the Spirit. I thought for a while that God was gonna do the preachin' Himself, but He had a message for me to preach, so I preached "Three Wells", a message that should be an encouragment to draw from the wells in our times of weariness.

Don't forget, we update on facebook, twitter, and our sermons are available as an RSS feed in Sermon Audio (you can subscribe just by clicking the orange and white button), but you can also download as a podcast from ITunes.

Playing Catch up

It seems like I'm behind a month or more, but its only a week...I think.

I preached a rather strange title last week. We only had one preaching service, we had a church singing last Sunday night, and it was a great big blessing.
Anyway here's last Sunday Morning's message "A Shindigger's last Shenanigan"

Set me as a seal upon thine heart..

Song of Solomon 8:6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

This beautiful verse tells us about our sealing by the Holy Spirit, what our love should be for Christ, what Christ's love is for us and ends with a stern warning for us. Let's break this down:

>Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm

The seal shows that we are God's, and on the Heart and Arm symbolize the emotions (heart) and actions (arm)

A few other places this symbolized in Scripture we find this is:

Revelation 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelation 13:16 And he (antichrist) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (hand symbolizes what they do, forehead symbolizes what they think)

Deuteronomy 6:6,8 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.


>for love is strong as death

Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.


>jealousy is cruel as the grave:

Deuteronomy 4:24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

>God is a jealous God and expects us to be loyal as in a marriage, demonstrated here in Song of Solomon and throughout the Bible. We are the Bride of Christ.

Isaiah 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

Ephesians 5:31-32 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.


> cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

Fire and flame refer to the grave of those that have provoked God to jealousy.

Deuteronomy 4:24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

Mark 9:45-46 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.


Now we see our duty clearly. God spoke it through

Moses: Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Paul: 1 Corinthians 13:2-3, 13 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing. ...And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Christ: Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Love is how we can tell who is Christ's and who isn't. Love is "as strong as death" my friends, and, in the case of Christ: stronger, He overcame death for us. But do we love Him enough to die for Him? Do we love Him enough to treat the His sheep with love? Our enemies?

"Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame."

God bless you and remember to savor your Saviour!

-Beth

Sunday's Message

Please follow this link for Sunday's Message. "What's it gona take?" This message was meant (as far as I knew) to be a "Sweet" message, an encouraging message. Turns out the Lord had me hit on a lot of different things. Infact, there were so many things outside of the message, I preached nearly if not more than an hour. Also, as you listen to th emessage, you will find that all of the message is not there. I will post the outline soon, so you can follow along if you'd like.

Sunday night we had a very nice service. I guess the Lord was trying to encourage us in His time. We had a few visitors and some of them were carrying heavy burdens. The altars began to fill, and folks began to seek the Lord for help and leadership.

I had a message on my heart to preach, "Trophy of Grace" but the Lord had other plans. Maybe He'll allow that message another time.

I hope you all have a great day, and enjoy the message. Or endure the message. Either way please listen and allow the Lord to speak to your heart.
