1 Samuel 31:13

1 Samuel 31:1-33

Vintage message from January 24, 1999. God is not obligated to answer our prayers when we are selfishly seeking for our own gain and using Him as something less than what He really is: the God and Creator of this universe, the One Who wants relationship and is desiring relationship with us. He wants us loving Him, receiving His love, and walking with Him daily, not just turning to Him in our time of need, but turning to Him because…
1 Samuel 30:26

1 Samuel 30:7-31

Vintage message from January 17, 1999. God is not stopped by our mistakes. God is not stopped by our rebellion. God is not stopped because we stop. Do you understand that God is God? He doesn’t need us. He desires us. He wants to work with us and through us, but He is not stopped because of the things we do. And in fact, no matter what we’ve done, if we will take the time even today to seek first…
1 Samuel 30:6

1 Samuel 29:1-30:6

Vintage message from January 10, 1999. We, in our lives, too often fail to look at how God has provided for us, how God has protected us, all the things that God has done for us. Do you realize that each one of us in this room this morning have a great and glorious testimony of God’s faithfulness? I don’t care who you are. You have a testimony if you will just take time to look at your life and…

1 Samuel 28:1-25

Vintage message from December 27, 1998. (The original message had imperfections and was cut off at the end.) Let me ask you a question real quick: what happens when that person that you look up to is removed? I mean, who of you have someone that you look up to spiritually? I know probably most of us in this room do have someone that we look up to spiritually: spiritual father, spiritual mother, a pastor, a friend, someone that we…
1 Samuel 26:24

1 Samuel 26:1-25

Vintage message from December 13, 1998. Oftentimes we find ourselves in situations where we see it as the right time to strike. I will deal with my problems right now. I will say what I need to say. I will do what I need to do to deal with my problems right now, rather than saying, “God, there’s my problem. You deal with it.” Once again, if we take matters into our own hands, we do not know what the…
1 Samuel 25:24

1 Samuel 25:23-44

Vintage message from December 6, 1998. (The original message was cut off at the end.) How many of you have ever dealt with people that, even though you probably had nothing to do with why they’re angry, [you] find yourself the recipient of their anger? You know what? It’s okay to say, “I may be at fault.” …If I’m having a bad day, and God sends someone to me and says, “Forgive. Love.” It’s because God sees my heart and…
1 Samuel 25:21

1 Samuel 25:1-22

Vintage message from November 29, 1998. Understand that sometimes in your life, you will be left on your own. Those that you depend on to make decisions with you, to pray with you, those that you trust for the spiritual direction in your life may not be there. God may take them home, or He may remove them to another place, but sometimes your life will be left alone to make decisions… Men who truly love the Lord are going…
1 Samuel 24:6

1 Samuel 24:1-22

Vintage message from November 22, 1998. One of the things that I want to warn you about is how you interpret Scripture… This is where I think we find ourselves most of the time: wrapped up in our own faults, wrapped up in our own hurts, wrapped up in our own desires, wrapped up in our own pursuit of life. We begin to look at God’s Word and then we interpret God’s Word from that perspective. “God, Your Word is…

1 Samuel 23:1-29

Vintage message from November 15, 1998. Ask yourself: is my sin affecting those around me? Is the life that I’m living, a life that is dishonoring God, or the lies that I’m telling, the things that I’m doing, are they affecting other people?… We have no clue what our sin is going to do to somebody else. We have no clue how our lives are going to adversely affect someone else. On the same token, what if we’re doing good?…
1 Samuel 22:22 It's never too late to turn from our sin. It's never too late to make things right with God. It's never too late to make our stnad and allow God to deal with me

1 Samuel 22:5-23

Vintage message from November 8, 1998. We find ourselves going through struggles, hard struggles, because God is disciplining us. But you know what? I don’t believe God disciplines us in wrath, and I don’t believe He rebukes us in anger. If He were going to do that, He would never have let His Son, Jesus, die for us. He would never have given us a Redeemer Who shed His blood innocently. Jesus did nothing deserving of the death that He…

1 Samuel 21:1-22:5

Vintage message from November 1, 1998. All of us will face discouragement as believers. Each and every one of us in our lives will face discouragement. Each and every one of us at times in our lives will face things that we do not want to face. We will have circumstances happen that we did not plan. The unexpected creeps up on all of us, and the unexpected oftentimes is very unpleasant, and will bring us to depths of discouragement…
1 Samuel 20:42 Do we belive that God sees everything we do

1 Samuel 20:24-42

Vintage message from October 25, 1998. (The original message was cut off at the end.) This is something I feel that sometimes we neglect in our lives. We allow for things to be in our lives that are hinderances to our being an effective witness and example to those around us. We carry “weapons.” We carry anger. We carry bitterness. We carry all kinds of things in our lives that when we’re asking God to deal with a problem for…
