Sermon from October 12th about the coming shaking upon the Church and the nations. We discuss the need to understand the times and the need to be unified rather than scattered so that we may encourage and help one another. Some of the other main points were:
Being in the daily Word keeps an open door of communication and helps us see life rightly
Wheat & chaff are separated in His hands
Be vigilant and purposeful but without fear
Yet once more a time of shaking is coming, it’s purpose is to separate what can and cannot be shaken.
Commit to trusting God and engage on the journey despite the dangers along the way.
Sermon from September 28th discussing the difference between an orphan spirit and being sons & daughters of God the Father through Jesus. Some of the highlights are:
An orphan spirit has a sense of abandonment, loneliness, alienation and isolation.
We are not self-made
The covenant of God through the blood and body of Jesus the Christ.
We may now call the Creator God – Father
Be renewed and transformed
We are no longer orphans; we’ve been adopted into the family of God. The proof is the presence of the Spirit of Christ dwelling in our lives and changing us into His image – hour by hour and day by day – until He’s done.
This is Patrick’s sermon on the morning of September 14th based upon 2 Kings 7 of God’s miraculous deliverance from the Syrian army and the courage of four lepers. Along with a needed exhortation, Patrick also included a brief report of his ministry with Vision Beyond Borders.
Just a brief reminder that Patrick Klein of Vision Beyond Borders will be speaking this Sunday at the 10am service and at a special 6pm service. The goal of the ministry is to serve the worldwide church by providing the necessary tools and training for the local people to fulfill Christ’s “Great Commission” in their own countries. This is done by supplying them with native language Bibles, training materials, seeds, clothing, medical supplies, prayer teams and evangelism to children. Last year alone, Vision Beyond Borders helped to ship and deliver over 50,000 Bibles to numerous countries in all types of languages. Patrick Klein has been involved in missions work for over 20 years and has spent several years living overseas in places such as Israel, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and China. He has helped to deliver over 750,000 Bibles around the world; providing God’s Word to those who are hungry and thirsty for the words of life.
We had a great visit with Patrick last year and look forward to another good visit. Please remember to let your friends in other churches, or those just interested to hear first hand accounts from headline regions, about our special service at 6pm this Sunday.
