Break Through the Darkness

Pastor Gloria
Matt 28:19 You can live above sin if you want to.
You have to decide. Make disciples, spend time
with them.  When there are strongholds, break
through the darkness. You will face adversity.
God wants you to get beyond sin.  It's not okay.
God will show you how to overcome.  He is the
only one who can break through the darkness.
Observe all things. If you love me you will keep
my commandments.
1 John 5: 18,19  God wants you to overcome the
things of darkness.  "Everyone who is born of God,
does not keep on sinning."  The whole world lies
in the power of the evil one. Live the example of
the Kingdom of God. It is either Light or dark, there
is no in between.
2 TIm 2:26 ...and they may come to their senses and
escape the snare of the devil after being captured
by him to do his will.
Eph 6:12  Spiritual breakthrough comes through
prayer.  It only comes when you learn to pray.
Jesus is coming, no time for playing games.
Daniel 10:12-14 Prayer will weaken our opposition.
A man who prayed-stood strong. Satan doesn't
want you to break through the darkness.  Break
through is a military concept- invade,  take enemy
Col 1:3  When God moves..Pray, weaken the opposition.
Eph 6:16 Breakthrough takes determination.  Seeking
the power of God to move.  When you pray there is a
battle going on.  God will send you reinforcements.
1 John 4:4 Don't lose heart. Remember prayer will
weaken the opposition.
Jn 16:33, Luke 18:8

The Cry of the Spirit

Pastor Gloria
Revelation 2:16,17
Jesus is speaking from His throne.
The Spirit and the bride say "come".
From His throne to the Earth through a prophet.
The Spirit and the bride say "come."
And let the one who hears day  "come."
And the one who is thirsty, "come."
Let the one who desires the water of life without price.
Galations 4:26
We are the ones God is going to use.
You are highly visible in this world.
People of like spirit receive you.
Ephesians 5:25
We on this Earth long for the bridegroom.
Divine event is coming.
Jesus is coming.
Are you raising your children to love God?
God is going to start healing every wound of
the church.  He will heal some wounds if you
let Him.  Christ is saying to come.
If you are thirsty, come.
Church on the Earth-the church in heaven.
Romans 8:26

Expect Divine Intervention (Eye Witness to Miracles)

Pastor Gloria
Matt 19:26
Everything you are going to receive, you are going to have to expect.
MUST have EXPECTATION!  Expect divine intervention.  God wants to show you.
Believe and He WILL show you. It doesn't matter how it feels, Trust God. Believe
"I have His power in me."  Jesus lives in my heart.  Christ in us.  "Greater things
than this shall you do."
When the devil attacks, go on the offensive and attack him back.  We have
power over all the works of the devil.  If you ask anything in My  Name.
You will go through things in life.  You have power within you. You said
in Your Word! You WILL be tested and tried, but will you stand?
Acts 3:16
By faith in the name of Jesus.  Trust and wait on God.
Deut 10:21
He is the only one that should be praised. To God be the glory.
Ex 15:26
Just listen.  Only a fool will not take instruction. The arm of flesh will
fail you. People won't admit they are wrong.  Listen to God-His Word and
do what is right in His eyes.  Walk it through in faith>.
Ex 15:1-2, 9-10
The devil says I will pursue and overtake you, but God always
has the last word.
Jer 32:27
Is there anything too hard for GOD?
John 2:11
His disciples believed in Him.
Luke 18:7
All possible.
Mark 23:24-29 Truth Revealed
You can make it.
Rom 15:18-19 powerful  Acts 19:11-12, Job 5:89
Eph 3:20-21 TO God be all the Glory
Expect Divine Intervention.  EXPECT
Be excited about what you are involved in.
Trust God in this. You're gonna make it!
No matter what it looks like.
Want divine intervention?
Expect it.
Don't lose heart.
Stay in the presence of God.
Be strengthened in your inner most being.
Be rooted and grounded in love.
Acts 4:29-31, Mark 16:17-20

Go to the Other Side

Pastor Gloria
Be about the Father's business in the midst of it all.
God will take care of you.  Whatever He calls you to do
He will equip you to do.  Learn this walk with God. He
won't ask you to do something unless He prepares you.
Mark 6:31-45
Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.
desolate-empty, no supply, you can't provide for yourself.
32 They went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves.
Mark 3:9 You get a boat ready.  Jesus knew what the crowd would
do. You have to get involved-put something of yourself into it.
Mark 6:37-39 He commanded them.  Jesus said, "You feed them."
You do it!
45 Immediately after the miracle he made them get into the boat.
He didn't get into the boat with them.  In desolate place, depend on
God.  Rest. He went to the mountain to pray.  Choice in desolate place.
Have to walk it out yourself.  Winds against them.
46 He sent them away. He departed to the mountain to pray.
48 He saw them toiling in rowing for the wind was against them.
It's not going to happen until Jesus makes it happen.  He saw them
rowing and it's hard.  Keep in your life what it takes to touch God.
Yesterday is over.  What is the next chapter in God?  He knows it
is painful.  He knows we are in a desolate place.
When miracles happen it is time to move forward.
Hebrews 11:3  He merely spoke and it was done.  By faith we understand.
Psalm 33:9 Nothing is impossible with God. What do we do to touch the
heart of God.  Go to the other side of despair.
Matt 8:23-27, John 6:16-21, John9:1-7, Acts3:1-10
Do something-pray.  Go to the other side, don't depend on yesterdays
miracle.  Go to the other side.
John 11:43-44 Lazarus raised from the dead.
1 Corinthians 15:16-19
Why a desolate place?
Why Bethsaida?
Why me? Why there?
Go to the other side.
Time to move on. Throw your shoulders back. "I can make it." Another
miracle will happen.  Get beyond the miracle that happened years ago.
Go forward to a new miracle.

God’s Master Plan

Sunday am and pm
Pastor Gloria
Truth will always prevail. Ephesians 1:9-10, Acts 10: 33-38
God has a plan and a purpose to bring all things into unity.
Get yourself ready. You better listen. Satan wants to get
us out of the Word of God.   Follow what the Book says.
Are we doing what God says?
God are you pleased with me?
Walk in a worthy manner-no pride.
Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God.
He will not permit the righteous to be moved.
Ephesians 4:1-16, Peter 5:6-10
1 John 55:16
Speaking the truth in love.
End TImes
Obligation to bear with failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
Romans 15:1-7, Verse 8 to confirm (Truth has promises)
We are His children
Acts 4:32-33 (Romans 15:1-7) All about maturity.
You are as strong as you declare.  Unbelief stops the gifts.
It is time to see what God is doing and to be part of it.
We have the obligation to build people up.  We are called to love
because we love God.
Acts 4:3  Peter and John talking about the goodness of God. 
Proclaiming the resurrection.
Devil's objective is to take the truth and turn it into a lie for 
the world to believe.

The Key

Wed. pm
Pastor Gloria
Acts 27:9-44
Every issue has a key or keys to bring everything good as God
shows plainly the answer.
We have to follow what God has laid out in His Word in order
to overcome our issues.
Answer- a spoken or written reply-response.
A correct response to a question, sometimes asked to test
one's knowledge.
God knows the issues we face.  Stand strong in the storm.
Matthew 16:19  The keys of the kingdom I will give you.
 Satan is your enemy.Stay in the boat you will come out on the
other side.  Tighten up your mind. Stay in the boat, you will be
Bind on Earth-Loose on Earth
Bound in Heaven-Loosed in Heaven
Keys that lock and unlock Kingdom Power. Which key goes where. 
God tests you to see if you can overcome.
God will bring you through, no matter the issue.
2 Cor 2:14 
When you are in Christ, He leads you in triumphal procession.
Luke 2:34  
Quit freaking out! Just stand. Every situation has a Key.
There is power in the Name of Jesus.  Satan does not have 
power to stop someone with the Key.
Doing His Will is acting on His Word.
Luke 6:46
The Will or the Word is the key to every situation.
Matthew 7:21 Do what God says.
Guidline to the Will of God.
Mark 4:14-26-29 Look at 30-32
Sow seed & wait.  Then the harvest comes.
Receiving Your Key
Isaiah 55: 8-11
James 1:5
Keys are no good unless they are used.
1. Obedience is the Key to the Keys.
2. Look at Johah.
3. Look at Paul-Jesus said hear His sayings and do them.
Let's use our Keys to the Kingdom-starting NOW!

July 22, 2018 Pastor Michael

Pastor Michael
Sunday evening
Worship is powerful.  It is not just for us. Others are strengthened
as we worship.  We are actually fighting a battle as we worship.
Our faithfulness has effect on other people.
Gaining Territory-
The enemy tries to discourage us, but he cannot stop us because
of what is inside of us.
How to gain territory:
If God placed a desire within your heart, then He can make it happen.
4) Physically-we have joined a new blood line!
We are fighting a battle as Christians living for Jesus. Eph 6:10
Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power.
It's HIS Power.
Put on the full armor,
You have an enemy.  Know how to fight. Put on your armor.
Serve the Lord and you have the power to win every time.
Enemy knows your weakness.  Use wisom.
Put on the full armor of God and when you have done all to
stand, STAND.
Eph 6:13 Faith comes into play
Belt of truth.Can't gain by being dishonest.  Be honest.
Breastplate of righteousness. Live righteous-manner worthy of the
Name of Jesus.
Peace-peace on the inside.
God dwells in peace. Enemy tried to rob peace. The struggle is against the 
Shield of faith-Believe even when you don't see it. Embrace  each season of life.
Helmet of Salvation.
Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  How can you battle if you are weak?
Would you send out an army if they hadn't eaten for a week?  Feed yourself 
spiritually in order to win the battle.
Pray for all of the Lord's people. Lift them up and walk with them.
You are gaining territory when:
1) you love someone who is unlovable
2) pray at home-block distractions and pray
3) think about people who need strengh and we stay strong for them
When you realize the weapon you have- who you are in Christ.
YOU are a weapon.
Joshua was used to gain territory. Josh 1:1
As I was with Moses, so I shall be with you. Be strong and courageous.
Wise, stand firm. God will use you to lead other people.

Conditional Statement : If/Then

Pastor Dennis
Sunday Morning
Covenant is made available to us.  If/then conditional statement.
If you don't serve God, you have no right to ask.
Covenant of God is conditional.  GIve and it shall be given unto you.
What do I want? Then treat people that way.
We live in an "You owe me" generation. We must teach our children
the If/Then principle.  GOd made covenant Deut 29:9- do this and you will 
prosper.  If you keep the words of the covenant then you will prosper
in all you do.  Listen and DO what God says - then God CAN. 
When you tithe, you release the hand of God to bless you. Deut 28:2
Blessings come on you IF you listen to God and DO.
Establish you a Holy People.  We do first what HE SAYS the we are blessed.
God wants you to be blessed. Deut 28:10 Pray for our country, our 
president. 28:13 You are the head and not the tail- Above and not beneath
IF you DO the commandments of the Lord.  Responsibility on our part.
Each of us has different things to deal with.  Where is your passion? Does
it belong to God? Surrender to Him.  Josh 1:8 God directs our path.  God is
in the middle of our lives. Blessings come if we fulfill our part of the  IF/THEN.
God is obligated to His covenant, but if you DON"T DO your part, God doesn't
have to do his part.
Deut 29:10 GOd wants complete surrender to covenant.
Desires of our hearts IF we please Him. If we are not blessed it is because we
refuse to be obedient.

Living Life to the Fullest

Pastor Gloria 
Wed pm
God intends for you to live life to the fullest. Phil 4:13, 1 Cor 13:1-13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Pro 10:21
Way of love-looks for the best in everyone.  Progress in God takes time.
Living on the edge.  Excitement, anticipation. Don't lose sharpness.

of I can! Live on the edge of expectation.
Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days that we may get heart of wisdom.
Make everyday count. Get your mind on God.
Walk in love toward them.  Their will is involved. Don't give up til God does it!
Can't let everything around you affect you.
Col 2:23-God is never wrong. Seek wisdom-to be able to handle a matter 
wisely. Know when to keep your mouth shut. Out the abundance of the heart
the mouth speaks. Luke 6:45
This is our chance to do as much as we can do.
James 1:25 When we please God in all our ways.  Your walk with God is just you 
and God, Doesn't depend on anyone around you.  Be a doer of the Word.

Mark 9:23 No one makes it impossible but YOU. Pray through the situation.
Psalm 146:2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live.

 Timothy 1:7  Did not give us a spirit of fear but a spirit of power, love & self
Ec 9:10
Matt 6:34 do not be anxious about tomorrow.  Everyone in God will advance.
John 10:10 the theif comes only to kill steal and destroy. Ps 16:11, James 4:14, Prov. 16:9

Moving in the Flow

7-15-18 am
Pastor Gloria
Jn7:37-39 Out of His heart will flow rivers of Living Waters.
(THose who believe)
1.  Water is the symbol of the Holy Spirit.
To flow means to move-that's what the Spirit does.
flow defined-To move freely from one place to another
in a steady unbroken stream, unhindered steady movement.
cease to flow, cease delveloping, become inactive, become
trapped, stand still
Without the move of God a church or whoever stops moving
in God. LIfeless
2. Know what is in Him or in use as a church.
Once when we all began to see recognize what is missing
(go with the flow)
Mark 6:1-6 Where did this man get this?
Jesus did all His works by the annointing of the Spirit.
We are nothing without Him. Move in the flow.  Can't control
it go with it.
Acts 10:38
1. Unbelief will hinder or block what God through the Spirit 
would have done.
2. Different strengths and flows. Streams come and make up a 
river, flow and move to the sea.
3.  The response will determine the outcome.
Jn 7:30
3. Worship clears the path
One Rock can hinder the flow of the river or (move of God)
1. Human reasoning-is not the flow.
Head or heart.
1 John 2:27 But the annointing that you have received from Him
2 Cor :16 Jn 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
(Life, flow,move)
Sunday night
Jer 29:13 You will seek Me and find Me when you seek me with your whole
You have to pursue God to stay in living flowing river.
Follow what God expects.
2 Chron 15:2 The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you
seek Him,he will be found by you.
Jer 29:12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me,
and I will hear you.
For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans for 
welfare and not for evil to give you a future and a hope.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Satan will trap you in stagnate water.
Seek Him with your whole heart. 
Jer 24:1 Know your own heart.  Return to God with your whole heart.
Ps 78:35 They remembered that God was their Rock.
36 flattered Him with their lips, they lied to Him with their tongues
37 hearts not steadfast
38 yet compasssionate
39 remembered they were but flesh
