God's Ten Words II - The Unique God
In this world there are many "gods". There is not one god, who is like the Unique Creator God. In the ten commandments we hear, see and learn about the One True God. His love for His created humans, that He formed in a mother's womb, with the seed of man, is unending. He desires to provide and we see His provisions for us, in the ten commandments.
God's Ten Words - I
The Ten Commandments. We first see the commandments in Scripture in Exodus 20, as the people have been delivered by the LORD from their captivity from Egypt. After being in captivity for 430 years (Exodus 12:40-41) the people would need to know how to live for the LORD. In today's sermon series, we see the people being reminded by Moses of the commands the LORD as a new generation is preparing to enter into the Promise Land. The LORD GOD, has given the commands for all people for all time. Listen here for the rest of the story...
Come to the Table
Jesus invites us: Come to My table! "Taste and see that the Lord is good" Psalms 34:8. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 5:6 What a gift of love that Jesus the Christ gives us in communion. His body to suffer the wrath of God for our sins, NOT HIS. His blood poured out to completely blot out our sin, NOT HIS. Thank you LORD Jesus for this gift so undeserved, yet in Your great love for us, You give. Listen here for understanding of this life changing gift.
It's All His Anyway

Listen here exactly how that happens....

Wasting the Interruption
Have you considered the consequences or circumstances that are painful in your life, an interruption? Possibly an opportunity to turn around or to reach out for something better? What an incredible mindset to have! To see a trial as a "yield or a STOP"! An opportunity to seek God's face for what He maybe trying to help you to understand. Don't waste your interruption in life, seek God with all of your being to find out what He is trying to tell you, you will be richly rewarded!
God's Three Appointments with Every Person
Do you know that God has made some appointments with each of us? Appointments in ministry of mercy to needy. 1. Our appointment with God in death is not one, that we'll not avoid, all in physical and spiritual death will meet God. 2. Our appointment with God in judgment, people will be judged by the gospel and the divine truth of the Word of God. 3. Our appointment with God at Golgotha. Have you meet Jesus Christ at the Cross?

Facing Overwhelming Odds
"Struggle is not with the people, but with the evil enemy of God." When you hear this information, do you want to shout, "YES BUT YOU DON'T KNOW THE PEOPLE I PUT UP WITH!!" Yes, and God still loves you too. In this sermon, Bro. Eddy mentions that Goliath is in a valley shouting at the people of Israel to come to battle. Listening to this sermon, I found myself thinking, "if my enemy is in a valley, and the LORD GOD is my defender, why am I giving my enemy space and time to talk to me like it is? And why, like Israel am I standing here so long and continuing to listen to an enemy that the LORD has defeated?"
Symbols of the Holy Spirit
Who is the Holy Spirit? What does He do? Why do I need to understand His importance in my life? John 14:16 - Father to send another of the same kind. John 15:26 - will testify about Jesus Christ. John 16:13 "guide you into all truth". The Bible also states that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. Today, do you want or need all of the wonderful attributes of the Holy Spirit including His perfect comfort? Listen here....

Marks of the Church:
Church discipline not always about punishment. Church discipline is accountability. God's discipline is His answer to unholy behavior. Discipline in the church - the Body of Christ - is vital that brings life.
Bread, Wine, Body and Blood
"Communion", "The Lord's Table", "Cup of Blessing", "Breaking of bread", "Eucharist" (good gift) or giving of thanks", What do you call the "Lord's Supper" ? What a beautiful ordinance that churches observe. The recognition of the gift of redemption of sin and the need for Jesus Christ.
As a parent mom or dad, as your children walk in the fullness of their free will; your only hope is Jesus Christ. In this sermon, we have hope that we are listened to and Jesus answers. Matthew 4:24 "And His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and He healed them."
What is a "fool"? Define fool - dullard, stupid. To be sluggish, thick-brained, folly, meshuggah. Foolishness: Devoid of a state of wisdom and understanding with a focus on evil behaviors. Boy! I can see myself in those descriptors of a fool. Trying to remember that, that person in front of me who is obstinate, was once me. Listen here to find God's solutions.
What is Prayer? What the Bible tells us.
What is prayer? What does it look like? How do we do it? Our best source for all of our questions regarding God and the things of God, is Word of God. As we grow in faith, prayer is much more personal, more important and more valuable.
Why Complain? or Examine Our Ways
Complaining. It seems it is a pastime of all humanity. Complaining that the people and things of this world do not meet our expectations. Even God. We humans, expect God to line up with the ideals that we expect of Him. Philippians 2:14 NLT says, "Do everything without complaining and arguing,". WOW, what a feat! Only through Jesus Christ can this be accomplished. Listen here to find out what the Prophet Jeremiah has to say about complaining from Lamentations 3:37-42.

Jesus and the Harvest
"The priority of Jesus Christ is spiritual, not material."
As living for Christ, this Truth changes the view of how we live our lives and what we are striving for.

They become about, "what is the condition of your heart and I care so much for you to ask, "hey want to hear how Jesus has solved this?""

Yet it is written, "My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.” Matthew 18:35 New American Standard Bible. Forgiveness, it's power is mighty, for healing, restoring and living life abundantly.

Today's message is the final installment of "Meshuggah. An examination of Christ's teachings and how coming to Him like the little children.
