Nehemiah - Building a city of refuge
Kenneth Martinez • Sermon • • 54 views • 34:37
Under the leadership of Nehemiah and Ezra, Jerusalem experiences one of the greatest revivals on its history. Due to their new interest in Scripture, they find out that they have been ignoring one of the most colorful commandments of God. In this message we discuss this occasion, and we learn why rituals are not always a bad idea.

God has loved and continues to love his people. Yet, despite the nature of this relationship, God's people in Malachi's day dishonour God. God's people need a great priest who is cursed, despised and discarded in their place. God's people need a great priest who won't decieve them. Thank God for Jesus who is the priest we need and helps us conform our ritual, heart and life to the nature of our relationship with God.

Freed by Christ Colossians 2:20–23 (ESV) 20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations— 21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” 22 (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to…
Tough Love: The Prophecies of Ezekiel
Having been called to be a prophet, Ezekiel must be initiated into this vocation. He will need to be transformed by fully embracing the severe judgment of God against sin. When he does so, the hope of God's mercy will begin to emerge from the ashes of God's terrible wrath.

The Lord's Supper (Communion) is an invitation to remembrance. One great theme to be remembered is that Jesus is our peace. By his blood, Jesus has brought down all barriers of fellowship that exist between God and humanity. He invites all, far or near, into a holy communion of peace in him.

Who is in control? // take a microscope over sovereignty // Attributes of God. // The Omni’s Being that God is all-powerful, we can surmise that he is always in complete control. That is his sovereignty- his controlling nature. Nothing has ever happened that was outside the purview of his notice. Nothing…
What's In It For Me?
We can view prayer as a means to get what we want, but prayer is first communicating in our relationship with God before any blessings are received. Pastor Rob Brower continues with Week 3 of "What's In It For Me?".
Acts: Blueprint of the Church

Learning To Read Scripture As Storied: The Book of Genesis
Traditionally, Adam is seen as the "man of sin" as it is Adam's sin that death first enters the world and comes to all men because all men sin. Yet, when we look at the Scriptures, Church Fathers, Second Temple literature, & other pagan myths/legends we find that Cain is the one regarded as the man of sin. Today we look at the reason for this life, that God gave us mortality so that we might repent & be changed. Cain does not repent & instead becomes an imager of demons!

Malachi 3 Can we turn to Malachi chapter 1 please? [P] May I ask an audacious question? “Why are you here?”! I know that when I was a kid, it was because I was dragged along. I was forced to by my parents; it was boring and I would rather not be there. I am sure none of you are like that! But you can…

INTRODUCTION: This is the first of twelve psalms ascribed to Asaph. Mostly likely this is the Asaph who lived at the same time as David (2 Chron. 29:30), although that name does appear later (2 Kings 18:18). This psalm is a wonderful illustration of how thoroughly the godly saints of the old covenant…

Malachi - intro Could we all turn to the book of angels, please? What? It is not in your Bible?! Am I teaching some heresy from some extra canonical book? No, it is in your Bible – the Hebrew for angel is מַלְאָךְ - simply a “messenger”. Malachi means: “My messenger” – although I am sure that it was…
