June 25th Worship Service – Beware of Bondage

Every individual should recognize the bondage that hinders us from experiencing the liberty of Christ Jesus. In this message, “Beware of the Bondage”, we will look at Galatians 5:1 and learn to let go of the bondages in our life.

Fathers Day @ Life Church – Choose to be a Godly Father

Dads…God has chosen you to be a Godly Dad. You have not chosen Him, but God has chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit. Watch this message as Pastor Terry shares with us what the Bible says about how to be a Godly Dad.

June 22nd Worship Service – From Death to Life

In this message, we will take a look at the miracle of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Jesus delayed going to Bethany so that the glory of God may be manifested. Even in the midst of this sign, some of the crowd saw the miracle but still missed the sign.

“They Can’t Take What God Gave You”

Thought for Today: They Can’t Take What God Gave You

Ever since you began to believe and understand that you are a child of God and that you have made the decision to do your best to live a life that is pleasing to God and receive all that God has for you, it seems like the world, your flesh, and especially the devil have been doing everything they can to take away all the things that you have learned that God has given you. 

You know that it is God’s will for you to be healthy and prosperous in mind, body, and soul. The word of God says “Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 2:2). But every time you look up the enemy is attacking your finances, trying to bring on sickness, and doing things that cause your very soul to be weary. They are of the mindset that they are going to just TAKE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN. 

God said, “I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will MAKE ALL THINE ENEMIES TURN THEIR BACKS UNTO THEE” (Exodus 23:27). But every time you wake up and get ready for your day the devil is right there at your doorstep, ready to cause you problems. The devil thinks that he can just TAKE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU. 

Jesus said “Peace I leave with you, my peace I GIVE UNTO YOU not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). And yet the world, your flesh, and the devil is doing everything it can to TAKE THE PEACE THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.  

The word of God says “Fear thou not for I AM with thee be not dismayed for I AM THY GOD, I (GOD) will strengthen thee yea I (God) will help thee, yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). And yet your enemies are trying to take the help that God, Himself, said He would give you. 

You are a child of the living God, Jesus Christ is your personal Lord and savior, and the word of God says “And know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be FILLED WITH THE FULLNESS OF GOD” (Ephesians 3:19). All of whom God is dwells on the throne of your heart.  

I will say it again THEY (the world, your flesh, or the devil) CAN’T TAKE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU. But you can give it away by reacting or responding how they want you to. The devil is a defeated foe. For the word of God says, “For as much as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He (Jesus Christ) himself likewise took part of the same; that THROUGH DEATH HE (JESUS CHRIST) MIGHT DESTROY HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH THAT IS THE DEVIL. And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14-15).

Listen to me, when they come and bring all the lies, manipulation, and accusations at you, don’t give your peace away by reacting to what they say and do, KEEP YOUR PEACE by responding with the word of God, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

When all hell breaks out and the enemy is coming at you from all directions, don’t just give up the life that God gave you by reacting to the situation at hand. Grab God’s word and say, “By this I know thou (oh God) favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me” (Psalm 41:11).

Religion teaches that when you are a child of God everything will be alright, but that goes against the word of God. Jesus, himself, said “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. IN THE WORLD YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION but be of good cheer I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

I don’t know who I am talking to, but anything that God has given you no witch, no curse, no hex, no demon, no power, no principality, no religion, no man, and not even the devil can ever take away what God has given you. But you can give it away by reacting or responding according to your flesh or the world’s way of handling things or doing what the devil suggests you do. They did not give you life, and they can’t take the life that God has given you from you. 

For it is written, “The Spirit of God hath made me (this means you) and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life” (Job 33:4).

Don’t give away the life that God has for you by reacting to the things that they say or do, they are simply attempting to get you to give the life that God has given you away because they know they can’t take it from you. Keep your life by responding with God’s words instead of reacting to their words.

“Staying With God on Your Journey”

Thought for Today: Staying With God on Your Journey

God is doing amazing work in this journey we call life. Is everything perfect? NO. Do you have it all together? NO! Can you do better? YES, we all can. This life with God is a journey, and when you learn to live this journey one day at a time with God, you will begin to understand what Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away and come again unto you. If you loved me ye would rejoice because I said I go unto the Father; for my Father is greater than I”  (John 14:27).

You are on a journey, and on this journey, you have to know this one truth while you are on your way; God is conforming you into the image of Jesus. Now you may be asking “Pastor Erick, where am I going on this journey?” Hebrews 13:14-16 says, “For this world is not our home WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR EVERLASTING HOME IN HEAVEN. With Jesus’ help we will continually offer our sacrifice of praise to God by telling others of the glory of His name. don’t forget to do good and to share what you have with those in need, for such sacrifices are very pleasing to HIM.” 

Each and every day you should have the mindset that you are going to live this journey called life WITH GOD. And as you live each day with God, the Holy Spirit of God will begin to conform (change) you into the image of Christ. For the word of God says, “For whom He (God, Himself) did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He (Jesus) might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:29-30)

Listen to me, the reason why the world, your flesh (feelings and/or emotions), and especially the devil want you to think and or feel like you are on this journey called life by yourself is because when you truly grab ahold of this one truth, that while you are on this journey called life GOD IS WITH YOU.  No weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17). 

When you know that God is with you, “I (you) can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13) When you know that God is with you, Jesus said “ He/she that believeth on me the works that I (Jesus the Christ) do shall he/she do also and greater works than these shall he/she do because I go to the Father” (John 14:12).

When you know that God is with you on this journey called life, the words of Jesus come alive in your life on the journey, which says, “Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents, and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). The last thing that the enemy of your soul wants to hear come out of your mouth is EMMANUEL. For the word of God says in Matthew 1:23, “and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is GOD WITH US.”  

Too many of God’s children live their lives with the mindset that whenever something happens in their life, God has to come into that situation. God has to come to provide, protect, or guide them.  

As a child of God, you cannot go on this journey called life with the mindset that God has to come to you, especially when the enemy of your soul comes at you. For the word of God says, “Let your conversation (life) be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for He said I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE NOR FORSAKE THEE. So that WE MAY BOLDLY SAY THE LORD IS MY HELPER AND I WILL NOT FEAR WHAT MAN SHALL DO UNTO ME” (Hebrews 13:5-6). And if God be for you, who can be against you? 

For it is written, “Then we departed from the river of Ahava (we started our journey) on the twelfth day of the first month to go unto Jerusalem (their home) AND THE HAND OF OUR GOD WAS UPON US (God was with us) AND HE DELIVERED US FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY AND OF SUCH AS LAY IN WAIT BY THE WAY” (Ezra 5:31). 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the Spirit of the Lord says to you today “GET UP AND LIVE for I AM WITH YOU.” Do not go by what you feel, do not go by what you think, and do not live your life by what you see with your natural eyes. I AM WITH YOU on this journey called life. Live each day with the mindset that God is with you and watch the atmosphere around you shift.

“Investing in the Kingdom of God”

Thought for Today: Investing in the Kingdom of God

There are some things that you have a desire for. And the things that you desire are not material things, they are spiritual things. You are asking God for just a little more grace, or a little more mercy. Someone is asking for the joy of the Lord; as a matter of fact you are at a stage in your life where all you want now is just the peace of God in your life.  

The Holy Spirit of God says to you today, if you want any of those spiritual things in your life, the best way to get it is to INVEST INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. “What in the world does that mean, Pastor Erick?”  

Jesus explained it this way in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” 

In other words, if you need mercy in your life, you must show those around you mercy. That is how you INVEST IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. If you desire a more friendly environment, the word of God says, “A man/woman that hath friends must show himself/herself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” If you are more friendly to those around you, the friendship with you and God will begin to flourish. This is how you INVEST IN THE KINGDOM OF God.  

Whatever it is that you need in the kingdom of God, you must invest that need into those around you. If you need more knowledge of who God is, share the knowledge of God that you have with someone else. If you need more understanding, share the little understanding that you have of the matter. If you need favor, hope, strength, wisdom, power, understanding, grace, mercy, kindness, meekness, gentleness, anything of the kingdom of God, the best way to receive those things is to invest the little that you have of the kingdom of God into those around you.  

I don’t know who I am talking to, and you might not like what I am about to say, but the reason the things of the kingdom of God are not manifesting more in your life is simply because you have been hoarding all the things that God has given you and keeping them, not only for yourself but to yourself.  

Jesus said “Verily verily I say unto you except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit. He/she that loveth his/her life shall lose it; and he/she that hateth his/her life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal” (John 12: 24-25). 

Jesus said “the things that I do that ye shall do also and even greater things shall you do because I go unto the Father” (John 14:12). This scripture is not just talking about miracles, signs and wonders. This scripture is saying you are being made in the image of Christ, Christ touched the untouchable, loved the unlovable, taught the unteachable, showed mercy to the merciless, gave to those who only took. He lifted the unliftable, healed the unhealable.  

He was investing into the Kingdom of God. This is what is meant in Matthew 3:2, “And saying REPENT ye for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Whenever you see THE KINGDOM OF GOD, get this in your mind, the kingdom of God is simply God’s way of doing things. The more you invest in the kingdom of God, or should I say the more you invest in God’s way of doing things, the more God will manifest Himself not only to you, but in and for your life.  

For it is written, “He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD and that which he/she hath given will He (God Himself) pay him/her again” (Proverbs 19:17). 

Whatever spiritual need you have, invest the little of what you have into those around you and watch the return that God grants you.
