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 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.

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…
