    “When God Is In It – It’s Not Over”
    “I Give Up!” These are words that are not easy to utter, but sometimes are spoken by those who are facing a situation that they think is impossible. When things seem to be inevitable, it’s easy to think,“It’s all over.” In this message, we will learn from a widow who lost her son to death. In the middle of her son’s funeral, Jesus suddenly shows up and does a miracle. We will learn that if God can raise someone from death to life, He can surely transform anything in our lives!  All it takes is for us to experience His power, a little faith, and a willingness to give Jesus control. When Jesus shows up on the scene,“It’s Not Over!”

    “Home Remedies” Series – Help is On the Way

    In this series on marriage and family, Pastor Terry will encourage you that in the midst of your storm, help is on the way. One of the most powerful and punitive words in the English language is the word “help.” It is a word that admits a position of total desperation and humility. When all seems hopeless, don’t give up but rest assured God has help coming your way.

    What happens when you go beyond the normal? Beyond the ordinary? Beyond the average? In the story of Rebekah, we see the extraordinary outcome of a woman who did what was expected...and then some. God sees the extra effort. And it’s the extra effort that brings breakthrough. When you go above and beyond, the extra mile, God will reward you with a suddenly moment. Understand, there are no traffic jams on the extra mile!

    “Suddenly…” Series – “A Suddenly Offering”

    In the Bible there are 7,000 promises of God. These are blank checks for you. God says, “If you do this, I will do that.” With every promise there is a premise. Only when you release what you’re holding on to will you see the precious gifts of God poured out. Supernatural miracles, doubtless purpose, and unmovable faith awaits you when your learn the value of giving a “suddenly offering”. In this message Pastor will share with you how your “suddenly moment” is connected to your generosity.

    “Suddenly…” Series – “Your Suddenly Season”

    Sometimes we wonder if the Lord is slow in answering our prayers, but God is faithful and punctual. In the midst of life’s obstacles and disappointments, His timing may not always meet our expectations. However, God is bringing rapid refinement-suddenly fulfilling the promises of His Word. What may be defined as defeat in one moment can swiftly be redefined as victory in the next. In this message Pastor will challenge you to look for those “Suddenly” moments God has for you in 2018 which will be your turning point.

“Suddenly…”

“…they were all in one accord…suddenly…” Acts 2:2,3

Much of life is waiting for something to happen. Minutes turn into hours, hours into days, days into months, and months into years. Waiting too often becomes more about the clock seeming to stand still. Where is that moment when it turns and what you have been waiting for “suddenly” arrives?

Throughout the Scripture God intervened suddenly in the middle of many difficult challenges, as well as, in daily life. God has a never ending supply of suddenly breakthroughs for His people. God knows we certainly need them.

In many biblical examples the “suddenly’s” were preceded by a godly person or group of people seeking the Lord, praying, and trusting in God from time of prayer until the answer manifested. It’s during those times we must not be weary, but persevere by faith. Even though there is a waiting period for the answer, when it does come it often appears “suddenly”.

We see that on the Day of Pentecost, Jesus told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they were endued with power from on high. They gathered in the upper room and prayed and sought God when suddenly there came from heaven as of a mighty rushing wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat on each of them. When did it happen? It happened suddenly.

In Acts 9, Saul was on his way to Damascus when he experienced a “suddenly” when a bright light shined down from heaven and blinded him and he heard the voice of the Lord speak to him. Years later after his conversion and his name changed to Paul, he and Silas were imprisoned. The Bible says instead of being

depressed and disappointed they prayed and sang praises unto God; and the prisoners heard them. And, what happened next? Suddenly there was a great earthquake and the foundations of the prison were shaken and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s bands were loose. It was a suddenly moment. Notice, the “suddenly” happened as a result of praying and singing praises to God while still in prison.

You may ask, “Where is my suddenly moment?” Be confident that God is a God of the “suddenly”. God has “suddenly” breakthroughs for you. Don’t break down before God suddenly brings you to your breakthrough. It’s at the moment in the natural you are about to give up that God steps in suddenly.

Sometimes, God chooses to bring your “suddenly moment” after a time of waiting. Abraham was very old before he saw his “suddenly” moment arrive with the birth of his son, Isaac. Moses was 80 years old before God raised him up to deliver the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. The Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years before they experienced the Promise Land.

Understand, God always has a season of preparation before you experience your “suddenly”. During the season of waiting, continue to pray, worship and sing praises unto God. Do not be weary or fainthearted because God can do anything, anywhere. There are no limitations to God.

Perhaps, you have been in a season of waiting for days, months, or even years. During 2018 expect God to do the suddenly because when the suddenly comes, it come quickly. Your suddenly God breakthroughs are on the way, if you faint not and continue to have faith and trust in God.

Expecting the Suddenly in 2018!

“What Are You Waiting For?”

“…Simeon, and the same was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel” Luke 2:25b

“And she (Anna) coming in that instant gave thanks unto the Lord and spake of Him to all them that looked for the redemption in Jerusalem.” Luke 2:38

Christmas is often associated with waiting. One Christmas when I was growing up, I really wanted a “Rock-em-sock-em” Robot. I dropped little hints everywhere. I wrote letters to Santa, cut out pictures from the Sears catalog, and even tried to be extra nice to my brother days before Christmas-which was not easy to do!

When Christmas finally came, I jumped out of bed and ran to the Christmas tree. When I opened the gifts, there was a “Rock-em-sock-em” Robot! It was worth waiting for!

As we look ahead to Christmas, what are you waiting for? Are you longing for anything special? What are you expecting to receive?

In Luke’s Gospel, we see two characters who made their appearance in the final acts of the Christmas drama. One is Simeon, and the other is Anna. They do not appear in any of the nativity scenes or in many Christmas cards, but they are significant in the first Christmas. Both of them were waiting for something; they were waiting for someone.

Luke uses a Greek word of anticipation which identifies these two as waiting with expectation for the coming of the Messiah. It literally means they were “alert to His appearance, and ready to welcome Him.” Simeon looked for the coming of Christ who would bring comfort. Among the Jews of Simeon’s day, one of the popular titles of Messiah was Comforter. We realize one of the universal human needs is comfort. We all struggle with loneliness, emptiness, insecurity, and desperation. In fact, the Christmas season is a critical time for those suffering with depression.

The Holy Spirit prompted Simeon to go to the temple courts at the right time on the right day when Joseph and Mary would bring Jesus to the temple. When Simeon looked at the six week old baby Jesus, he knew God’s promise was kept. Here was Emmanuel, “God with us” to provide comfort, peace, and joy. Simeon reached down, took Jesus in his arms and began to praise God for the Promised One had come to bring comfort to us all.

The other Christmas character waiting with anticipation was Anna. After her husband died, she dedicated herself to fasting and praying in the temple. The Bible says she never left the temple, but worshipped day and night. She was looking for the same person as Simeon. However, instead of comfort, she was looking for forgiveness. She was looking for the One who would bring redemption to Jerusalem.

The word “redemption” is related to the thought of captivity. The Old Testament Passover and the release of Israel from Egyptian slavery stood in Anna’s day as the ultimate redemption and the symbol of God’s power to release captives. The Passover pointed ahead to the day when God would provide deliverance from the slavery of sin through His Son, Jesus. When Anna saw Jesus, she thanked God, and spoke to Him to all who waited for redemption. Here at last, was the one who would save His people from their sins.

What are you waiting for this Christmas? Jesus provides all we need. If you need comfort and peace, He will give you comfort. If you are plagued with guilt because of something you have done, or the way you are living, Jesus brings forgiveness and redemption from all our sins. There is no better time to find comfort or forgiveness than this Christmas.

May you have a wonderful Christmas. Remember to thank Him for the comfort and forgiveness He brings into our lives!

Changing Lives for Eternity!

With Love,
Pastor Terry & Tina Richardson

“Cleansing Power”

“In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” -I John 1:7

Most of us wash our hands a number of times throughout the day because they get dirty. We either take a bath or shower, and put on clean clothes every day for the same reason. After working in the yard or being outside in the heat, it doesn’t feel good to be hot and dirty. It’s refreshing and feels good to be clean. We are happier and so are those around us when we are clean!
 
Of course, it is important to keep ourselves clean, but soap and water only work on the outside. It is extremely important that we keep ourselves clean on the inside, too. We need to think of it more often than we do because the real measure of a man depends on the inside, not what you see on the outside. But, how can that be accomplished? We can’t do it on our own. We need something more because washing with soap and water, even with a scouring pads, doesn’t reach the filth on the inside.
 
So, how can we get clean on the inside, that is, spiritually clean? The Bible says that nothing but the blood of Jesus Christ can make us clean spiritually. At first, that may be difficult to understand because we naturally think of blood as something that is messy and needs to be cleaned up itself rather than being a cleansing agent. But as you think about it, blood is what physically cleans our bodies on the inside. As the blood carries carbon dioxide back to the lungs to be expelled, it then carries fresh oxygen from the lungs back to the rest of the body. It is a never ending cleaning cycle.
 

If blood cleanses us physically, then it would be reasonable to believe that blood cleanses us spiritually. However, it is only blood that is spiritually pure and undefiled that can make us spiritually clean. It is only the blood of Jesus Christ, who “knew no sin that He might become sin for us” that we can be made spiritually clean.

 

What a wonderful gift we have been given! To know as the song we proclaim: ”What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” There is no other cleansing agent that is able to eradicate the pollution of sin from your life but His blood. How precious is that blood which not only covers your sins, but completely washes your sins away!

 

Let us never take His blood for granted or deny the power of the blood! The blood of Jesus shed over 2,000 years ago on the cross at Calvary is still powerful in 2017. His blood can remove every wrong or impure thought from your mind. It can cleanse you of every misdeed and every wrong or impure thought from your mind. It can cleanse you of every misdeed and improper motive of your heart. Allow God to apply this precious blood to your life!

 

May we continually be grateful to God for His precious gift of His Son and His blood that purifies and cleanses our hearts. Let us continue to offer up our praise and worship with thanksgiving to our God for the many, many blessings He gives us. We love and appreciate every one of you.

 

With Love,

Pastor Terry & Tina Richardson
