I came across this book that a friend of mine recommended to me named "Fifty Pentecostal and Charismatic Leaders." I like the book so much that I ended up calling the author not long ago and speaking to him at length about the book. The book mentions many leaders you are likely to have heard of: Smith Wigglesworth, William Seymour, and Aimee Semple…
 
Let's go to John 16. The last two months for me have involved much more praying than usual from me for the state of our nation and the world. The advantage of a new year is that it allows you the chance to reboot and consider what you plan to do over the next year ahead. There's a statement I like that says "Things will never be different unless yo…
 
Open up your Bible to Ephesians 4. This passage states, "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers." These five categories describe what many call the five-fold ministry, with each role performing a vital function in the body of Christ. While each person may not be called to one of these r…
 
I was praying about today's service and seeking the Lord and I was reminded of the importance of my role as a pastor in feeding you as a shepherd would feed a flock of sheep. The word I'd like to feed you all with today centers around one word – "blessed". I remember looking up the definition of blessed many years ago and reading that it is the opp…
 
I'm going to talk to you out of John 2 tonight. This is often referred to as Jesus' first miracle in the gospels. The gospels don't tell much of Jesus' pre-ministry time before his fast in the desert apart from his blessing by Simeon when a young child and being found by his parents in the temple at age twelve. As such, this passage to our knowledg…
 
How many of you have a Bible today? Let's go over to Hebrews 11. I want to talk to you today about hope. We need to have hope in the day we're living in. Hope, by definition, is the expectation of future good. It's whenever we are looking ahead and believing there is God's goodness in our future. It's important for all Christians to have hope, part…
 
I’d like to share with you tonight some special things from my heart. Many nations of the earth do not share the liberties that American Christians possess, such as freedom of religion. Where here we can freely proclaim our faith and practice it in our lives, in other nations even professing faith in Jesus could be the cause for imprisonment. Howev…
 
Brent’s message last week on turning a curse into a blessing blessed me immensely and lined up with something that had been on my mind recently. I believe the church body has a need to live with victory – not just while in church but in our everyday lives. Too often, Christians live through a defeating week and get hyped back up to victory in churc…
 
Back in October I had the opportunity to speak in a church in Tulsa, and that day I felt God had placed a special message on my heart in which I was able to share a message on following God as sheep follow a shepherd, and then relate those verses to my life and how they had guided me as I shared my testimony. Tonight, I'd like to take the opportuni…
 
Many years ago I had the chance to hear Brother Hagin speak in person. His sermon focused on Romans 5:17 and its description of how the Christian can be renewed and reign in life with authority through the words we speak. We must remain aware of the power that God has granted to us through the indwelling of his Spirit. While we do live in reality a…
 
I’d like to talk to you tonight about a subject that has been a tremendous blessing for me – the fullness of the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the blessings from praying in the Holy Spirit. What I’m speaking about doesn’t come as any sort of memo from a governing body, it is instead a topic that has continually served as an oasis in my life that r…
 
What I’d like to talk to you about today is the person of the Holy Spirit and how he interfaces with the Christmas Story. Wednesday night we spent studying the angelic activities that took place around the Christmas story, and as I was praying I felt it would be fitting to speak today on Christmas Day on what the Holy Spirit’s role in Christmas was…
 
I remember many years ago when I was a young pastor, I gave a message on the many angelic encounters that occurred in the Christmas story. I always thought this was a fascinating topic because if at the time of the Christmas story, you were not receptive to the ministry of angels, you would have missed out on the incredible thing God was doing by b…
 
I want to share with you this morning the Christmas story from Luke's account in Luke 2. In this passage, we read how in situation after situation, Mary and Joseph encountered inconvenience and chaos on their journey to fulfill the census for the Roman government. Whether having to return many miles back to Bethlehem, the census occurring when Mary…
 
Open up your Bible to Ephesians 3. I'm going to read to you a passage that I'd like to hold onto as you go into the New Year. We live in what we call a "fallen world", one that has much depravity and sin as people oppose God's plan. If we aren't careful, we can allow this to hold us down in our Christian living. The Bible tells us to "not be confor…
 
I'd like to read you some scriptures I've had on my heart lately. In the various Epistles of the New Testament, we find evidence that the early church would gather and read letters from the various Apostles, much like what we're doing tonight. It can be helpful to keep the focus on the Word when gathering. As such, I'd like to read two passages tha…
 
If you would, open up with me to the book of Acts in chapter 16. This passage tells the story of how Paul and Silas were imprisoned after casting a spirit out of a girl while evangelizing. In the midst of such a discouraging situation, they could have felt that God had abandoned them. But instead, as we will see, they stayed faithful to God, singin…
 
We are living in a time in the world where many strange things are occurring, like never before in history. It can be easy for Christians to gather together and end up talking about everything the devil has been doing, instead of focusing on what God is doing. Our time together as Christian believers is crucial, and we must use it to edify one anot…
 
I want to share a quick word with you today that I believe the Holy Spirit put on my heart. I will admit with this message that I am preaching to myself a little with this message, and if you wanted to put a title to this message you could call it “Hold Steady.” I’d like to talk about the phrase “patient endurance” and how I believe it is crucial f…
 
If you have a Bible, I’d like you to open to Acts 22. In this passage, we see how Paul recounts how he had an encounter with God on the road to Damascus. Through this story, we get to see what Paul’s very first prayer was to the Lord. My purpose in focusing on this prayer is to allow us to ask ourselves, “Are we frequently praying Paul’s first pray…
 
Tonight I’d like to share from Daniel 6. This past Sunday, our guest Bill Kern mentioned Daniel. As I studied this past week, I felt more and more strongly that this passage should be read by our congregation together. Daniel is a Biblical character who lived through many political regimes, or as we might call in contemporary times, administrations…
 
Today we’ll be hearing from a surprise guest, a farmer from rural Oklahoma named Bill Kern. Bill and I have been friends for many years and it is my belief that his experience as a farmer gives him many unique insights into Biblical passages. As of late, his work has been pivotal in allowing him and I to reach legislators in the Oklahoma State Capi…
 
In Sunday's service we taught on an Old Testament story from 2 Kings 4, on Elisha and the woman of Shunem. This story tells of how a woman showed generosity and hospitality to Elisha, with Elisha blessing her kindness by praying for God to give her a son. Despite this blessing, the son later passed away due to illness, requiring the woman to exerci…
 
I'm going to share something with you today from 2 Kings 4 that I think will be meaningful to you. This passage is about Elisha's role in blessing the woman of Shunem with a child and his later resurrecting of that child. After the child's death, despite standing in the face of such despair, the woman simply said, "It is well." In our times of desp…
 
I’m going to talk to you today about the phrase “run your race.” Growing up, my parents always told me, “Tom, you’re impressionable.” Whether it was a farmer, athlete, or attorney who I spent time with, I always came back wanting to be like them. I think that sometimes in Christendom as we begin to walk with the Lord, if we are not careful we can g…
 
Several months ago, I gave a funeral message with the knowledge there would be many present who would not be saved. I asked the Lord to give me a message that I would be able to reach them with and that could make the most of this opportunity. He reminded me that everyone has "core issues," flaws in their lives that they are seeking to solve. The s…
 
We're going to look at John 10 today, which is titled "The Good Shepherd." This allegory by Jesus talks about a thief and a robber several times. If he mentions it so many times, it's probably important that we direct our attention to these concepts. So, the question is, what is a thief and robber? Are they the same thing or different? Listen in to…
 
I want to speak to you about practicing the presence of God in your life. Our time can be filled with unexpected circumstances and frustrating incidents, and it is important that show that we are living in God's presence and exercise grace and peace toward others. Those in the Old Testament could not live in God's presence as we could, although Mos…
 
What I'd like to speak to you this morning about is the responsibilities of a spirit-filled church. What are they? I think most of us have been in situations where we have had privileges but have realized that with the privileges comes responsibility. As the Bible says, "To whom much is given, much is required." There is a blessing side to what we …
 
I'd like to talk to you tonight about "making room for more"...sometimes in our lives we can become too rigid, set, predetermined, and like we already know how everything is going to turn out. It was this same problem that made the vast majority of Jews miss Jesus - he did not fit the image of the Messiah that they had in their minds. If we are too…
 
What I'd like to do today is talk more about the Christian marriage. Why is that important even if you're not married? At some point a married person might come to you for help, and it is important your mind be renewed to the Bible in this area so you know what to say. But also, characteristics that make a good spouse also make for a good Christian…
