Wow...what a week for those whose eyes are opened and whose hearts are seeking the One who is coming to make all wrong things right.
John continues the analysis of the same-sex ruling by the Supreme Court this past week, accentuating and expanding on the very clear message conveyed by Pastor Steve Mitchell in our earlier morning service. Pastor Steve's message from June 28, 2015 on gay marriage can be found here:
John will expound upon and examine the actual language of the decision and will also add some bold predictions on the coming persecution of those followers of Christ who hold to the traditional definition of marriage.
Put on your armor, fellow Christians. Your belief system is the target now. Will will not capitulate, confirm or condone that which God calls an abomination.
Pastor Steve Mitchell makes an unadulterated and positional statement in regards to the recent Supreme Court ruling approving same sex marriage and imposing it upon all states, and eventually on all those people of faith. FBC is taking a stand. Which master will you serve? Will you serve God, or man?
Pastor Steve continues his series on the Book of Hebrews, expounding on the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the model of faith they have set as an example for us to follow.
WARNING: NOT AN OBAMA-FREE SUNDAY
Those who have the discernment of the Holy Spirit understand that the race to the end is gaining speed and momentum. With recent polling indicating that support for homosexual marriage is now over 60%, the basic underpinnings of our societal structure are being cut out from under us, to the detriment of all people.
When things get to the point where "Caitlyn" Jenner is considered to be courageous for changing his physical body to cope with a mental problem, while true heroes like Lauren Hill (the young woman who lost her battle with cancer but lived her dream of playing college basketball) we have reached a tipping point in history from which there will be no recovery short of the direct intervention of our Creator.
When wrong is now called right, and then celebrated by the unwashed masses, we have reached the point where the ability to discern may be lost forever. The coming judgement of God is now likely the only thing that can bring a world full of people have collectively thumbed noses at Him, into full account for their iniquity.
Pastor Steve explores the Faith of our Biblical fathers, beginning with"Avraham Avinu" (Abraham, our father). The ancient world was full of demonic spirits and false gods, including Allah, the moon god, who still today leads billions of people to their ultimate and eternal destruction.
Unfortunately, the modern day church is replete with its own false teachers, who seemingly channel the same spirits but do so in a way to disguise and package an entirely different Jesus. From those teachers, we should all flee.
Scripture tells us that in the end times, people will lose the ability to reason. They will think they are waxing eloquently and intelligently, however their thoughts and actions will lack wisdom.
This is becoming more and more clear everyday, as we spiral toward the end of all known things and come face to face with our Creator.
"Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done." Romans 1:28
Pastor Steve continues his message on the Book of Hebrews with part 2 of his series, "Faith of our Fathers". What is it like to have the faith of Abraham, who, at the age of 99 is told by God that he would have a son? If God makes a promise, He will keep it, and in the case of Abraham, his descendants are too numerous to count solely because of his faith, and God's promise.
John makes bold statements on the decisions coming down from the SCOTUS regarding marriage and other critical issues. Evil is clearly on the rampage...could the persecution of the American Christian Church be near?
Tune in, and get ready to do your homework on 2 Thess 2:6-8, which John will address in next week's message.
…6And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;…
