1 Samuel 8:22 For any of us who have ever struggled in our relationship with the Lord and feel that God has somehow abandoned us understand that God has never abandoned us

1 Samuel 9:1-27

Vintage message from June 28, 1998. Being a true worshipper is the toughest thing you will ever do because it is being honest with yourself and with God and with everybody around you. It is coming to the place of understanding what the truth is and living that truth from your heart, from your spirit, before God, and that is tough… If you think Christianity is wimpy, then you do not understand God’s heart, and you do not understand God’s…
1 Samuel 8:9

1 Samuel 8:1-22

Vintage message from June 21, 1998. God will bless you, and God will meet your needs but He won’t necessarily give you all the things that the world has… We don’t want to be like the people in the world… We want to be what God wants us to be… But it becomes so easy for us to look at what everybody else has because they have a little more. All of a sudden, we need that, too, to be…
1 Samuel 7:9

1 Samuel 7:1-17

Vintage message from June 14, 1998. This is a message we need as the church today: that we wonder in our lives why bad things happen, and we wonder why hardships come, and when the hardships and the bad things happen, we turn to the things of the world because obviously God can’t deal with it. But let me tell you something. Jesus told us. He promised us. “In this life you will have tribulation.” He promised that. But then…
1 Samuel 6:20

1 Samuel 5:1-6:21

Vintage message from June 7, 1998. When we live our lives for the Lord, when we represent God the way He wants to be represented…the unbelieving world sits up and takes notice. We have no power to save anyone. We have no power to change anyone. We do not have the power to go out here and win the souls of these people. Even though, Jesus, before He left, said, “Therefore, go into all the world making disciples of every…
1 Samuel 4:1

1 Samuel 4:1-21

Vintage message from May 31, 1998. Do you realize that the church today is in a battle? Do you realize that when we walk out these doors that we are stepping into a world that hates God? [A world] that does not have the Holy Spirit, does not understand that they need a relationship with the Father, and that the Father has given His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for them as well as for us? When we…
1 Samuel 2:30

1 Samuel 2:12-34

Vintage message from May 17, 1998. We oftentimes take for granted the blessing that God has poured out upon us. We in the church today understand and live within the grace and mercy of God. And you know, I see people who fall away and fall into sin and they say, “That’s okay. I’m under God’s grace. God will forgive me.” …I have to tell you guys that sometimes we have sin in our life, and that sin needs to…
1 Samuel 2:3

1 Samuel 2:1-26

Vintage message from May 10, 1998. Do you find yourself in that place that when God answers your prayers, when God fulfills the promises He’s made to you, when He does the miracles in your life, do you find yourself actually stopping and taking the time and rejoicing? This is one of the other things I’ve observed within Christendom today. We have all kinds of needs, and we’ll pray for all kinds of things, and we’ll say, “God, give me,…
1 Samuel 1:28

1 Samuel 1:12-28

Vintage message from May 3, 1998. How many times have we found ourself in misery because of the circumstances that we’re in? Because of the things happening around us we are in misery. We’ve told all of our friends so many times that we’re finally getting to the place where we think that no one cares… Oftentimes when I’m going through struggles, when I’m going through hard times, I get this feeling that God has forgotten me. That somehow God…
1 Samuel 1:11

1 Samuel 1:1-11

Vintage message from April 26, 1998. See, part of our problem in life [is] we begin to struggle. We being to have hard times, and we whine and we complain and we cry to one another.

He’s tried to communicate with us, but yet we whine and we cry… Do you realize that God…
1 Samuel 1 Intro

1 Samuel Introduction

Vintage message from April 19, 1998. I find in my life and in the lives of many people around me that I get caught up in my flesh, and I begin to do what I want to do. God allows…hard times to come on me…and then I cry out to God. And just like the Israelites, we continue to turn back to the sin of our flesh rather than continuing to walk with God. Even in the church, we find…
Daniel 12:10

Daniel 12:1-13

Vintage message from April 12, 1998. Everybody…has some kind of trouble, some kind of struggle, some kind of hard time that they’re going through… We all have struggles, don’t we? And we can, in fact, put ourself in that place of feeling like we are the only ones that are struggling. We can cut ourselves off from the fellowship. We can cut ourselves off from the body, when in fact, the body is where we need to be because there…
Daniel 12:1

Daniel 11:40-45

Vintage message from April 5, 1998. One of the things that I have learned throughout the years is that friends that are bought are not friends at all. If you’re my friend because I’ve done something good for you, and I continue to do something good for you, what happens when the bad comes in my life? And let me tell you, if you’re my friend, you’re liable to see the bad. I’m liable to do stupid things. I’m liable…
