Spiritual warfare can hit us when we least expect it, or worse yet, we might not even realize we're in the middle of a spiritual battle. Pastor Claud Houde talks about how believers can identify attacks and do battle against the forces of evil in their minds, hearts and lives.Download MP3 Download MP4
David Wilkerson (1931-2011)
Slipping into works-based righteousness is very easy for any believer, particularly when we are feeling condemned in our spirit or shaken in our faith. David Wilkerson talks about how the disciples began arguing about who was the greatest shortly after the Transfiguration, and he points out how many of us struggle with the same fearful need to prove our salvation.Download MP3 Download MP4
Gary Wilkerson examines Job's cry to God and God's response. God points out the overwhelming behemoth and leviathan that Job could've never overcome on his own and then points Job to his own authority and power in the world.
If we attempt to take on demonic powers without God's authority, it's a struggle we'll never forget. However, we are called to be Davids with Goliaths. We are called to do battle against evil and chaos as the children of God. That can be deeply frightening, but the Bible says over and over, "Don't be afraid."
Where there is chaos, you are called to bring order as a child of God. Gary talks about how we walk this out without becoming overwhelmed.
Failure is a common denominator for everyone, so why does our loving Father allow us to fail over and over? How does he continue to use us in the midst of our botched work? Pastor Tim Dilena discusses the answers in this week's sermon about how the Bible handles failure.Download MP3 Download MP4
Many of us have been wounded. The Bible has promised us freedom, but often it feels like we’re still held back by scars. Pastor Gary Wilkerson talks about how God uses truth to set us free from the damage in our past, but how God also allows the snake to be in our garden. The automatic question is “Why? Why would God allow there to be a snake in our lives that tempts or wounds us?” There are four major “snakes” in our lives:
1. Fear or anxiety
4. Shame or self-loathing
The Bible’s most common command is “Fear not” even in the face of great challenges. God wants to show us the strength his Holy Spirit has within us to make us more than conquerors.
God’s people are meant to be a light and blessing to the world. Even the darkest, most entrenched parts of society can be overcome by faith as small as mustard seed. All God needed to overturn pervasive culture in the book of Acts was 120 common, ordinary people who were willing to let their hearts be overcome by the Holy Spirit. In this passionate exhortation, Pastor Carter reminds Christians that we are called to live for the benefit of others.Download MP3 Download MP4
