Imagine with me you are driving down the road and as you come into a populated area the speed limit drops. You drive on oblivious to the change in conditions and “program”. Just a bit up the road is a roadside speed trap. You zip right on through at the pace you were going before coming into that town.…
The Life of Christ
Ken Richter • Soldier Creek Church of Christ • Sermon • • 2 views • 35:27
On one occasion when asked by His adversaries to provide a sign from God, Jesus refused. He said that only the "sign of Jonah" would be provided. The Father, however, had plenty of signs to show while His beloved Son was on the cross! This lesson examines those miracles and their purposes.
The Coming of the Holy Spirit
The Church tends to huddle together, enjoying each other's company, & sharing life. But the Holy Spirit wants to spread the good news of the Kingdom and Christ. When persecution hit the Church in Jerusalem, the disciples were forced to flee outward throughout Judea and Samaria. Philip brought the good news to the Samaritans, healing, delivering, and baptizing them. However, they did not receive the Spirit till Peter & John laid hands on them. The Spirit always works outside our neat boxes.
Redemption: How Jesus Frees Us
In the plagues, God demonstrates his power over Pharaoah/Egypt, over Satan, over all creation, over false gods, and over our idols. Additionally we see him set apart his people and disguise between them and the people of Egypt. Finally God exhibits his patient grace in the midst of the plagues. He is truly slow to anger. His wrath is measured, he doesn't just fly off the handle. And in his patient grace his desire is that everyone might turn to faith in Jesus Christ.
How did the miracles of Jesus connect with His claim to deity? What are demons? What was the purpose of demon possession? Do we have demon possession today?

This is the moment Jesus first reveals himself to all his disciples after rising from the dead: (19) Then, when it was evening on that day-- the first day of the week, and the doors having been shut where the disciples were because of…

A 4 Part Sermon on 4 Unrelated Stories There are parts of the Bible that lend themselves more to teaching/preaching than others. Today's passage, Exodus 4:18-31, doesn't lead to a smooth sermon. It's a series of four short stories. Each of these stories has its own little buildup and conclusion. Each…
Wherever Jesus traveled, the critics traveled with him. Their hearts were calloused and by this time talk was already beginning about ways to kill Him. Don’t miss the disconnect here: the religious leaders were trying to kill Jesus! For the person with the hard heart, no amount of evidence is going to…

The death of Jesus was a momentous event. It was not merely an incredible event for the followers of Jesus. The Gospel of Matthew shows us that this is an event that was significant on a cosmic level. In other words the events that accompanied his death show that something incredible and earth shattering…

Our faith in God needs to grow. It grows when God works in big ways in our lives and it needs to grow when God works in unseen ways as well. God is always working in our lives even when we don't see it.
Jesus has been describing the characteristics of the world leading up to His return. Now Jesus gives some definitive signs. When these happen Jesus is on His way.

April 12, 2015 Intro – The first time I was ever in Boston I quickly found a great difference between there and where I lived in SoCal. In SoCal, if you want to go to Disneyland or Sea World, you don’t need GPS. Signs from LA to San Diego point you exactly where you need to go. The closer you get, the…

By Pastor Glenn Pease Don't feel bad if you feel confused by Matt. 24. The greatest Bible scholars in the world are confused by this chapter, and the preachers of the world are so confused they contradict their own system of theology in preaching on it. Dr. Earl Rudmacker, the President of Western Conservative…

By Pastor Glenn Pease It was reported in the mid 80's that shoes coming to America from Italy had a Common Market stamp on them. It was a circle with a line drawn through the middle, and in the top half was a lamb's head with two horns, and on the bottom half was the number 666. Joe Esses said he saw…
