Life Church Dec. 27th Service – Reach…2021 Message

Watch this message as Pastor Terry shares the theme for our church in the upcoming year – Reaching…Higher. Wider, & Further in 2021. Reaching is an action verb requiring stretching , doing more, and extending to grasp something. You will be encourage and blessed in this sermon to reach and extend your faith to God to His dreams and desires for you and Life Church in 2021.


Dec. 20th Message – “What Are The Chances?”

Watch or listen to Pastor Paul as he speaks on “what Are The Chances?”. That what are the chances that Christmas is all about the pursuit of you. How God loved you so much that he sent his son to be born in a manger and later die for you on the cross at Calvary. 


The Sounds of a Silent Night Christmas Program

The Christmas story…the account of the birth of Jesus Christ…is recorded in the Bible. Throughout the Old Testament, God spoke “to” specific people for specific purposes, and He also spoke “through” specific people, the prophets, with messages for entire people groups. The Old Testament closes with the words of the prophet Malachi, and 400 years pass until the opening of the New Testament. 400 years of what seemed to be filled with silent nights.

“Walk Away
”

In these last days there are going to be so many people coming up to you to try and tell you what they think you should do, say, and how you should act. Most of the time their response will be like everybody else in the world. And the thing about what they tell you to say, do, or how to act does not line up with what God says do. The Word of God says,

But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men (women). (Jeremiah 5:23-26)

I do not know who I am talking to but there is someone you have been talking to giving you information. You know in your heart it is not right. I say unto you, my brother and my sister, Walk Away. For the more you entertain their words, the more they will lure you into doing things their way instead of God’s way. If they are not trying to convince you to do or say things their way, they will convince you to do or say things your own way instead of God’s way. The more you entertain their words, the more you will be snared into the traps of the devil. The Word of God says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth (listen) unto counsel is wise.” (Proverbs 12:15 [emphasis added])

The thing about it is you know what they are saying is wrong. You know what they are telling you to do is wrong. You know how they are telling you to act is not of God. But yet you still entertain the idea by continuing to listen to them. The more you listen to them, the stronger your flesh (feelings and/or emotions) gets. The more you listen to them, the more your soul will be directed to tell your spirit what to say and do. As a matter of fact, the more you listen to them, the more you will struggle with the situation.

The Word of God says, “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.” (Proverbs 26:4) If what they are saying does not line up with the Word of God, Walk Away. If what they are saying does not line up with the character of God, Walk Away. If what they are telling you to do is totally opposite of what God has told you to do Walk Away. If their thoughts do not line up with God’s way of doing things Walk Away. For the more you entertain their words, the more snared you will be by the world, your flesh, and the devil. If you know what they are saying is not right, telling you to do is not right, and what they are thinking is wrong, do yourself a favor and Walk Away. For it is written:

Go from the presence of a foolish man (woman), when thou perceivest not in him (her) the lips of knowledge. (Proverbs 14:7 [emphasis added])

Everybody does not have your best interest in mind. Do not entertain foolish conversation today. Do yourself a favor and Walk Away. For when you Walk Away, you prevent a fight from even getting started.

Be Blessed!

“They Say More Than He Says
”

There is a certain situation you have come against. It has you going back and forth. One person says you should do this; another person says you should do something else. One moment you feel like you should say this, and the next moment you think you should say something else. As a matter of fact, you ask Facebook, Twitter, and all the other social media what would they do if they were in the same situation. Some may have given some answers you thought about. Some may have given you answers you kind of thought about. And there will be some who will say things you would never even think about doing or saying. Then there are those ideas you would never do but in this situation you just might. All these ideas coming and going have you going back and forth. And the saddest thing about it is you are a child of the Most High God, and after all the information gathering you make this statement: I guess all I have to do now is pray about it.

You make an attempt to pray to God about the situation. As you pray, all you can hear are the ideas the world, your flesh, and the devil have placed in your mind. You cannot hear the counsel of God because of the instructions of the enemy. You tell yourself (and those around you) you have prayed but God has not answered. I do not know who I am talking too but the Spirit of the Lord says to you today, you must repent. I know you may be thinking, repent from what, Pastor Erick? I did not do anything wrong. All I did was seek advice, and then I prayed. Why do I need to repent?

The Word of God says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3) Wait a minute, Pastor Erick! I have to stop you right there. I have not even thought about going to another god. I have no idea why you even brought this scripture up. Did you go to God first? No, you tried to figure things out for yourself, which meant you put yourself before God. Then, you went to another person to ask their advice before you went to God. Then, you took your situation to social media; again this was before you went to God with your problem. And then you make the statement: All I have to do now is pray. You see religion hast taught you  idolatry is just serving another god or worshipping a statue. But the true definition of idolatry is when you place anything or anyone before God, including yourself. The Word of God says, “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, the Lord thy God am a jealous God . . .” (Exodus 20:5)

The reason why you cannot get instructions or answers is because you put everything and everyone before God. And since they were first with their counsel, guidance, ideas, and instructions, you listened to them (the enemy of your soul) before you went to Him (God), who is the lover of your soul. Ask God to forgive you for going to the world, your flesh (feelings and/or emotions), and the devil first, and leaving Him (the counsel of God) for last. Repent from idolatry and put God first in your life about anything and everything. And know this. Since you put Him first, He may choose to use a person to give you the answer. Or He may use a certain situation to open the eyes of your understanding about  problem. But when you go to them first before you go to Him (God), you must know their instructions will cause you to be in limbo and confusion about the situation. For it is written:

Cease, my son (my daughter), to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge. (Proverbs 19:27 [emphasis added])

Go to God first. Understand His ways are not your ways and His thoughts are not your thoughts. But when you go to Him first, it gives Him permission to answer you any way He chooses.

Be Blessed!

“Seeing It God’s Way
”

There are times in life where you just cannot see things God’s way. You cannot see how getting sick is in God’s plan for you. You cannot see how not having enough money to pay your bills is God’s plan for you. You cannot see how it is in God’s plan for people to lie on you, mistreat you, deceive, and/or manipulate you. As a matter of fact, you cannot see how this person who does not know God, is not trying to know God, and does not want to try to get to know God, yet they have everything they want out of life. And yet, there are things missing in your life. Jesus was asked, “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?” (Matthew 22:36) And Jesus responded to them, saying, “. . . Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38 [emphasis added])

There are parts of your life you are ashamed of, and you have hidden those things in a room in your heart where you will not let anyone in, including me, says the Lord. There is a place in your heart where you hide fear, unbelief, doubt, and unforgiveness. There is a place in your heart where pride has taken over, and you cannot allow anyone to see. And because you have not allowed me into those areas of your heart, you have kept parts of your heart from me, says the Lord. Let me in every area of your heart my son, my daughter. “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.” (Psalm 147:3) Let me in the area of your heart of which you are ashamed. “Create in me (you) a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me (you).” (Psalm 51:10 [emphasis added]) As powerful as I am, says the Lord, I will not force my way into a specific area of your heart, for I am a gentleman. “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man (woman) hear my voice, and open the door (of room in your heart holds hidden truths about you), I will come in to him (her), and will sup with him (her), and he (she) with me.” (Revelation 3:20 [emphasis added])

The enemy has deceived you by telling you to keep an area of your heart from me, says the Lord. You clean it up yourself first, then let God in. But I came by to serve notice, you cannot clean any area of your heart for God. You must let God into the area of your heart, and let Him clean it up for you. How do I let God into an area of my heart to give to him, Pastor Erick? Here let me show you through the Word of God. “Come now, and let us (you and God) reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah1:18 [emphasis added]) You see, when you say, “God there is an area in my heart where I am prideful,” it opens the door for him to come in and cleans up that area of your life. You begin to see things His way. For the Word of God says, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18) When you tell God, fear has overtaken an area of your heart, it allows Him to come in and remove the fear. You will begin to see things Gods way. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (II Timothy 1:7)

If you want to see things God’s way, take the lock off the area(s) of your heart and talk to Him about it. “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13 [emphasis added]) God does not want part of your heart; He wants all of your heart. For unlike human relationships, your relationship with God cannot be 50/50. He gave His all, so you must give him your all. For it is written: “My son (daughter), give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.” (Proverbs 23:26 [emphasis added])

Give God your whole heart. Tell Him about the areas that are stained, ugly, dirty, and just downright shameful. Watch God come into those areas of your heart and not only clean those areas up but renew them as well.  This action will allow you to see God’s way much clearer.

Be Blessed!
