Pastor Ricley answers questions about the gift of tongues, finding God’s voice in the Bible and whether Joseph put the cup in Benjamin’s sack out of anger or mercy.
God starts out the Book of Zechariah by reminding Israel that everything He has said has come to pass. His Word has endured, but the fathers are all gone. He promises to return to Jerusalem to dwell in His people in truth and holiness – if they will hear and obey. That promise endures today and we can escape judgment by taking shelter in Him.
The Book of Hebrews serves as a reminder to us to go back to the foundations of what Christianity is. Our relationship with an indwelling God who directs our path daily as we yield to Him sets us free from bondage to the law. We can lay aside the weight of trying to get ourselves to heaven. Faith in His promises reassures us that as long as we stay in relationship with…
Pastor Ricley preaches on the book of Nahum and its significance for the hour we’re living in. This is a time of decision – the world or Jesus? In or out? Earthly minded or heavenly minded? Born of man or of God?
In this overview of the Book of Micah, Pastor Ricley talks about how God is dealing with us individually in this hour to bring the church to something she has never herself to be – fruitful. What God calls us to do, He brings to pass in our lives as we learn to wait on Him and follow His direction.
God sent astrologers with the message that the Messiah had been born because He knew the people wouldn’t receive Jesus. Same spirit that didn’t want Jesus to be King exists in the church today. Jesus as King disrupts the kingdoms of men. If we would listen to the voice of God there would be no division in the church.
When the Spirit and Presence of God is within us, He can get us to the right place at the right time with the right message. Churches are distracted and weak, fighting each other over doctrinal issues while the real enemy rages and is robbing people of peace and hope. Put off the old man and be renewed so if you’re the one person standing between heaven and hell in a…
There were 3 men described as “devout” in the New Testament. Each story was about how God moved powerfully in their lives, honoring their devotion. Be encouraged that as we determine to be devout in our relationship with God He will use us and move through us in the same ways. Scripture: Acts 8:1-3, Luke 2:25-35, Acts 10:1-6
The Jews didn’t understand the covenant was about to end because they weren’t close enough to God to hear His voice and because they weren’t interested in giving up their kingdoms for His. The Christian Church is in much the same position today. The covenant is about to end, and most Christians have no understanding of that. We’re preoccupied with big buildings and…
Jesus was in a continual battle with the priesthood because they wanted to catch Him with His words to find a way to imprison or kill Him. We’re in the same battles today as more people want to fight against what’s true and right. We need the mind of God, the Word of God, the Spirit and Presence of God to answer the questions people have in this hour.
