Absolute Obedience

  • Date: October 9, 2015
  • Verse: “And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.” (1 Samuel 15:22)
  • Summary:

    We've got a lesson to learn in our midst. We have watched the hand of God dealing with lives over this last number of years - - in my life, personally, us as a fellowship, and many of the trials that you've been through. Some have lost family members, some are battling with diseases and pains, and the economy. We've spent time in the Word of God where we've studied and it said, "We have only one recourse in the midst of all of these trials, to just stand and say, 'The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the LORD'" (Job 1:21).

Faith Builds Christlikeness

  • Date: January 17, 2018
  • Verse: “Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.” (Luke 17:1-4)

Faith Follows That Great Cloud of Witnesses

  • Date: January 3, 2018
  • Verse: “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

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.

Faith Rests in the Providence of God

  • Date: November 13, 2017
  • Verse: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
  • Summary:

    I can't remember the number of the channel in LA, but Willard Cantelon started what eventually was given to Paul Crouch, which is TBN today. We know that there is a lot of weird stuff on there; but, nevertheless, over the decades a lot of the Gospel went out, and the world has been affected with the Gospel through it. Willard would start something like that, give it to somebody, and walk away.

Faith Makes Room for the Man of Faith

  • Date: November 11, 2017
  • Verse: “And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.” (Genesis 26:22)
  • Summary:

    The evangelism of the world did not begin with the Holy Ghost coming into the midst of the people and bringing about revelation and power on the day of Pentecost, to where everybody then caught this great vision to go into world missions. Evangelism began with persecution and disbursement. When everybody got full of the Holy Ghost on Pentecost, people began to hear the gospel. They got saved. They're excited. Persecution, trials came and spread them all over the world to take the gospel. Many of us seem to think that conflict and opposition is a lack of faith.

Faith Sees God’s Bigger Picture

  • Date: November 5, 2017
  • Verse: “And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.” (Genesis 26:22)
  • Summary:

    "And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we. And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there. And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them" (Genesis 26:16-18). Isaac is beginning to move out, blessed, but he looks around and says, "I want what my father had.

Faith Digs the Wells Again

  • Date: November 1, 2017
  • Verse: “And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.” (Genesis 26:18)
  • Summary:

    Isaac was prospering. The man's prospering greater than he ever has in his life and the Philistines envied him. Then the Scripture says, "…the Philistines envied him. For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth. And [in his prosperity] Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we" (Genesis 26:14-16). Isn't that interesting? He goes down there just looking for a place to believe God. God prospers him beyond everyone around him.
