Unity in Knowing Jesus

  • Date: November 14, 2013
  • Verse: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” (Matthew 11:29)
  • Summary:

    We'd like to think that as believers we're living sanctified lives, living free from the world. But we don't want to minimize how vexed we are by the world. We've been challenged in recent months as to how carnally minded we really are, how vexed we are by the world that we're living in. If you don't think that's possible, remember what the Lord said. He said, "Listen, you're living in a time when, if it wasn't shortened, even the very elect wouldn't be able to stand.

Faith Treasures the Eternal

  • Date: December 8, 2017
  • Verse: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)

Faith Patiently Endures

  • Date: December 6, 2017
  • Verse: “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” (Hebrews 6:12)
  • Summary:

    The great men of faith, when they went out, messed up, didn't they? And they owned up to it. Many of us have too much pride to own up to it. But we've already taken a look at Abraham, and we just finished a look at Isaac: Isaac, the conduit; Isaac, the man who didn't have to set his own agenda. What a man of faith, that just realizes, "The only reason I'm here is to let her flow. I don't have to come up with new revelation. I don't have to be the hotshot on the block. They don't have to have my name in lights.

Faith Relies on the Presence of God

  • Date: December 4, 2017
  • Verse: “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” (1 John 2:6)
  • Summary:

    As He has chosen to reveal Himself in His Word, we come to Him. He has revealed Himself to us, and we have the knowledge of God through His Word, both written and living-Jesus, as He appeared in the flesh and came and dwelt among us, Emmanuel ("God with us"). So we look at His life, and we see the life of Jesus. But that's what He has revealed of Himself to the finite; He is bigger than that. But we can't even handle what He has revealed. So we have faith in the infinite God, the omnipotent God. He is all‑powerful. They marveled that the wind and the waves were subject to Him.

Faith is a Lifestyle

  • Date: December 1, 2017
  • Verse: “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8)
  • Summary:

    We're answering the question out of Luke 18:8. The Lord said, "When [I] come, will I find faith on the earth" (Luke 18:0? Many of us, like Peter, would say, "Oh, yes. Amen! Praise God, I'm living in faith. We understand that without faith it is impossible to please Him and that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. I study the Word. I know the Word, and my life is committed to the Lord. So I'm in good shape, praise God." If that is your response, I would become a little more sober and realize that if Jesus asked that question, maybe it's a valid question.

The Heart of Faith Treasures Father’s Presence

  • Date: November 27, 2017
  • Verse: “And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.” (Genesis 32:25-27)
  • Summary:

    We know the story in Genesis of Jacob's wrestling match. Jacob is wanting the Lord to surrender to his will as He asks him, "What is your name" (Genesis 32:27)? See, that phrase if you study it out is very similar to saying "say uncle!" when you're getting whipped. Can you imagine? He is wrestling Jesus, and he's got this thing going on, and he says, "Are you ready to say 'uncle'?" That's not a good thing. The wrestling match occurs. Isn't it amazing how God will let us fight against Him until we wear ourselves out? We think we've got God on the ropes.

Faith Keeps Believing

  • Date: November 22, 2017
  • Verse: “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8)
  • Summary:

    In one of Willard Cantelon's letters, he said, "Recording your sermons is one of the wisest things you have ever done. And knowing that these messages can be transcribed into writing and find their way into all levels of life is the leading of the Holy Spirit. I know we look for the soon return of Jesus; but, as He tarries, we seek to fulfill the ministry He has given us." Willard goes on and covers a number of different aspects. This stuff is so old that I don't think they even have it today; and from reading it, my thumb has actually made a lot of the words go away.

Be Found Faithful

  • Date: November 20, 2017
  • Verse: “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8)
  • Summary:

    We need to return to where we covet the manna-God's supernatural supply. "What is it?" That's what the word manna means. "What is it?" I don't know; but it's good because it's from God, praise God. "How does it taste?" Godly. It's the confidence in the Holy Spirit that leads us into truth. This is a part of the ministry of the Spirit of God, and the power that comes through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and that anointing that abides within; but one thing we need to realize is that the Holy Spirit is leading us into truth, praise God, into the Word of God, both written and living.

Faith to Lead the Next Generation

  • Date: November 15, 2017
  • Verse: “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8)
  • Summary:

    We visited California a while back. I told you how tragic it was, as we drove from San Jose over the hill into Santa Cruz. I have always been excited about seeing the big sign-"Bethany Bible College"-there. I was telling Greer about it as we were coming upon it pretty soon. It was tragic, as we came over; it just said, "Bethany College."

    We stopped in, but I couldn't find anybody I knew. There were just all these kids. And so, I started talking to some of them, and every person I talked to was a psych major.
