Resurrection and Reward

Resurrection and Reward

May 28, 2019

Daniel 12:1-4 Not all of us are going to resurrect in one instance. That is going to happen in three different time frames.

But, the resurrection of the unsaved is going to happen at the same time.

Every one has to get out of their graves, no one is going to stay there.

God is going to reward "Those who are Wise" and "Those who turn many to righteousness".

Very interesting topic to deal with, listen to the sermon to know more.

A Different Spirit

A Different Spirit

May 28, 2019

Numbers 13&14: God commanded Moses to spy the land. Moses sent one from each tribe along with Caleb & Joshua. Majority of the spies came with a negative report saying "we are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we". But Caleb & Joshua said, "We will go and possess, we are able to overcome". For they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them.” Later we find Caleb could do that because he had a different spirit. What is that different spirit? Today you and I need that different spirit. Based on Caleb's report, this is what we could arrive at. Read the rest of this entry »

General | Who are those Angels

General | Who are those Angels

May 17, 2019

Revelation 7: 1-3 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

Characteristics of the Early Church | A Giving Church

Characteristics of the Early Church | A Giving Church

The early church was a giving church.

- Giving increased their bank balance in the heaven. (eternal giving)

We can't take the money or cheque to heaven, but we can start depositing in heaven by giving to God.  If any of us feel that we don't give enough to God, you should start giving to God. Read the rest of this entry »
