THE KING IS COMING
I believe we are living in the Last Days. Literally ever aspect of Christian life is under attack. In the UK, a couple is banned by the court from becoming foster parents because of their Christian values and belief that homosexuality is a sin. On the ABC Network a new pilot program called “Good Christian B*tches” is being brought to life by “Sex In The City” executive producer Darren Star. ABC is owned by Disney. The new Catholic Bible is reframing the virgin birth by reinterpreting Isaiah 7:14 to say a “young woman” shall conceive and bear a son instead of a virgin. Finally, our President in a very revealing decision has decided that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional because it defines marriage as being between a man and a woman and excludes same sex marriages. It’s only a matter of time before Pastors will be charged with “hate speech” simply because they are teaching the Word of God.
Tonight we start our study through the Book of Revelation. On Sunday we will begin our study through the book of Ephesians. Both are crucial for the life of every believer at this time. The Book of Revelation is crucial because it not only reveals God plan for the last days that we find ourselves in, but it also reveals God’s desire for how we are to live during such troubled times. Ephesians is crucial because it tells us who we are in Christ and how we are to relate as Christians to the world around us. How important it is for us to understand God’s heart for us in these last days. I invite you to come out and join us on Wednesday evenings and encourage you to bring a friend on Sunday mornings. We have started webcasting our services. You can view them at USTREAM. You can also catch up on studies that you’ve missed or perhaps your following us from a distance at VIMEO.
SPECIAL NOTE: This Sunday, we will not be observing Daylights Savings Time until after the service. SO… Don’t change your clock an hour forward the night before. Do it on Sunday after church. Of course, if you don’t get the message, we welcome your help in setting up.
Roxie and I are praying for you…
