John 6:20

John 6:16-24

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired December 29, 2002. I also find this problem in the church. The church is either filled with, “Lord, but…” or “Lord, if…” The Lord will ask us to do something, and we automatically go into a bargaining mode. “Okay, Lord, I’ll do it if… If You want me to go there then You must do this for me. Lord, if You want me to help that person then You’ve got…
Psalm 79:9

Psalms 79-80

Vintage message from December 29, 2002. So often I hear people who fall on hard times say, “It’s because God is unfair. I don’t deserve this,” but most of the time I find it is that God is just being fair after having warned us, given us His Word, given us history to look at, given us people who’ve shared testimony with us about why hard times come, and we ignored it. And so, because God loves us,  and because…
John 6:11

John 6:10-15

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired December 22, 2002. You know what? God doesn’t need a lot from us. God does not require a lot from us. He just asks that we make available to Him what little bit we have. And we, like Phillip, oftentimes find ourselves in a crisis of faith because this scenario of life that faces us is overwhelming. There is no possible way that we can accomplish the work that needs…
John 6:5

John 6:1-9

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired December 15, 2002. [Do] you realize that if you are not in fellowship, if you are not getting out of your bed at sometime during the week, leaving your house or opening your home at some time during the week — you may do it every day or you may do it one day a week — but you need to, some time through your week, find yourself gathering together…
John 5:30

John 5:31-47

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired December 8, 2002. Part of the problem was, the religious hypocrisy did not know the truth any longer. God’s Word had become a nebulous. It was a bunch of rules and regulations. It had been reduced to, rather than lived up to, and we do the same thing still today in the church. Rather than reading God’s Word and living to God’s Word, we take God’s Word and we reduce…
John 5:24

John 5:21-30

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired December 1, 2002. One of the things that Jesus is about is telling the truth. You know, part of our problem within Christendom…is that we have developed rules and regulations, we have developed traditions that have nothing to do with truth, and then we try to bind people to our rules and regulations…and our way, most of the time has very little to do with truth… It’s not about our…
John 5:20

John 5:16-20

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired November 24, 2002. Sometimes, if we are going to walk right with Jesus and be blessed by Him and grow in Him, we need to understand His grace, and we need to understand that just having Him in our lives is sufficient, and what makes us whole is not that we can walk again or that we can see again, but that we can interact with God again the way…
John 5:9

John 5:1-15

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired November 17, 2002. It is faith that grows in us as we hear the Word of God. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” And in no way in our salvation by grace through faith or by reading His Word does it imply…that we’re going to have those ailments or injuries healed, but yet there are people who would say that you are not living by…
Psalm 69:13

Psalms 69

Vintage message from November 17, 2002. So often in life we find ourselves in trouble, we find ourselves in struggle, and all we can say is, “God, help me! God, help me! God, make this go away! God, make me stop hurting. God, I don’t want this to happen to me…” What was the purpose for Jesus coming? To restore what He did not steal; to restore our lives; to restore the lives that we stole from God through our…
John 4:42

John 4:39-54

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired November 10, 2002. Whose will are we doing? Are we doing the will of a denomination? Are we doing the will of a church doctrine?… Or are we doing the will of Him Who has sent us?.. What [spiritual] food do we eat? Do we only worry about our own belly in the flesh or do we fill ourselves up by accomplishing the work that God has brought before us?……
Psalm 68:28

Psalms 67-68

Vintage message from November 10, 2002. Do you realize that as a child of God, if you receive Jesus into your heart, you have an inheritance waiting? You have a place that God has created you to be in? He’s prepared a place for you. And you might have to cross the desert to get to it, but if you look at it from God’s eyes, He’s already pouring down the showers of blessing. He’s allowing for the vegetation to…
John 4:26

John 4:25-38

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired November 3, 2002. The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter what church you go to, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve gone to church, it doesn’t matter if you wear robes or you wear a suit or if you wear blue jeans. God is not impressed with the size of our building or the size of our Bible. God is not looking on the external. God is not…
