7/20/2014 Are You Making Any Progress?

We are seeing the process of God making progress as we study Esther. Esther has an opportunity for progress. Where have you been passive and need to get active? What opportunities is God giving you for progress?

"Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress...Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men..."

7/6/2014 Wake Up And Win!

Our lives are marked by three things: sin, mistakes, and tragedies. These complicate our life to the point of discouragement or despair. When we invite THE LORD to have full access to us, God can and will: Redeem our wrecks, Reconcile our wrongs and Resurrect our resumes!

For Such A Time As This Rudy Sheptock
6/29/2014 A Holy God And The Real You!

Esther and Mordecai are living a double life...How many of us are like that? Sort of Christian...sort of non-Christian...transformation can happen...we have to get real! You must bring the holy God the real you!

For Such A Time As This Rudy Sheptock
6/22/2014 Respect Must Be Earned

Respect can not be dictated, it must be earned. Esther chapter one teaches us much about men and women.

6/7/2014 Men Make Lousy Gods!

Xerxes wanted to be King. There's something in all of us that wants to be king. There's something in all of us that wants all the glory. It's amazing to see how what we see externally reveals what is going on internally.

For Such A Time As This Rev. Rudy Sheptock
6/1/2014 Where Are You God?

Though God may be invisible-He is still invincible! He is always at work!

For Such A Time As This Rev. Rudy Sheptock
5/25/2014 Joy To The World-The Lord Will Come!

For years it's always been about power and control. Joy to the world-the Lord will come! Who you receive as King today will define what kind of world you will live in tomorrow! If you hang onto the controls of your life, you will miss His power-now and then!

Will you be a lifeguard to rescue one who is drowning?

5/11/2014 The Love Of A Powerful Woman

It's not easy being a woman or a mother. "Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her..." Proverbs 31:28

5/4/2014 Faith Praying For God's Family!

It is a necessity for the Christian Family of God to PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER! PRAYER AND PRAISE are in the DNA of every Believer!

4/27/2014 "No Swearing Allowed"

"Take my speech Lord and please let it be truthful- sacred not just on Sundays- but a tongue that tells the truth no matter what and no matter where! One of the fruits of being a Truth Seeker is that you are a Truth Speaker!"

4/20/2014 Easter 2014: Ready For A Rude Awakening!

Here and Now! Do you want salvation to come to your heart and your house today? The invite Jesus to come and live in you! It is never too early-it is never too late-God's favorite word is TODAY!

EASTER 2014 Pastor Rudy Sheptock
4/13/2014 Palm Sunday: Holy or Hypocritical?

Here comes Jesus...even though the people are misguided in the way they worship, they are right on in WHO they worship... It is only the power of the Cross that will set you free! Will you follow Him?

Death is certain...are you ready?

EASTER 2014 Rev. Charlie Harrah
3/30/2014 Patiently Waiting For?

If you say you believe like you do, why do you behave like you don't? How do we face trials patiently? Make firm your hearts! Strengthen what will remain long after this earth passes away.

3/23/2014 Rich Christians

James confronts the sin: "You glory in your extravagance." Christianity is a faith rooted in making a positive and practical difference in the world we live in. There is no such thing as a casual Christian.

3/16/2014 James Does An "Attitude Alignment"

Attitude Alignments: 1. You can foolishly ignore God's will 2. Never forget life is fragile 3. You try to sell God as if you were God. 4. You have no excuse to not be a believer

3/9/2014 Your Will Be Done

Christianity without Transformation is just informational. Jesus must be your LORD, not just your teacher.

2/23/2014 Do You Believe God Is Better?

Are we praying for each other or preying upon each other? James says that if you tear down your fellow believer without just cause-without having the whole truth-without first confronting your family member face to face-you are out of line!

Pressure Points Rev. Rudy Sheptock
2/16/2014 Everybody Needs A Humble Heart

James is challenging his flock to no longer be driven by pride, but to fall on upon their knees and humble themselves and give God access to their entire lives.

Pressure Points Rev. Rudy Sheptock
2/9/2014 Freedom Via Surrender

Are you going to begin a love affair with the things of this world or are you going to fall in love with Jesus? Submission is a call to faith! The benefits of grace are poured out freely but only when we choose God!

Pressure Points Rev. Rudy Sheptock
1/12/2014 Wise Guys With Open Eyes

Let's examine the difference between earthly and heavenly wisdom. James is laying out a series of tests by which a person can verify the genuineness of his or her faith. Spiritual conversion is manifest in their wisdom. Wisdom is evidence of what kind of person you are. Wisdom is not defined by what I know, but depends upon how I choose to live...You can't have wisdom without a relationship with God!

12/22/2013 "What Child Is This?"

What does "incarnation" really mean? He Came as one of us-He came to be with us!He was supremely God Who became fully man. God desires for all of us this Christmas to do what Jesus did that first Christmas-to discover the power to breathe and move and live and have out being in God!

12/15/2013 The Scarlet Cord of Christmas

In Israel, they loved genealogies. "Ask me who I am, I'll tell you about my people." Matthew tells us the genealogy of Jesus to prove He was the Messiah...The Redeemer...the friend of sinners! There is a scarlet cord that runs through the Old Testament and Jesus becomes the scarlet cord for all of us when He died upon the Tree for you and me...That cord should strike a chord in all of us believers!

11/24/2013 The Jesus of Christmas: Zealot or Savior

Jesus did and said a multitude of things no zealot leader would ever say or do. The Jesus of the New Testament is clearly not a zealot revolutionary aiming at a military forced overthrow.

11/17/2013 Stick Out Your Tongue!

Faith Works! True saving faith produces genuine works of God through us.

Pressure Points Rev. Rudy Sheptock
11/3/2013 Salvation: Textbook or a Love Story

Do we get caught up in getting others to embrace our spiritual formulas rather than surrendering their hearts to fall in love and follow Jesus? Becoming a Christian might look more like a Romeo and Juliet romance than a Cooking show about how to make Christmas cookies.

Pressure Points Rev. Rudy Sheptock
10/20/2013 The Pressure of Partiality

Partiality is inconsistent with God's way of doing things. Partiality ignores the logic of what Christianity is all about; and partiality keeps us from preaching MERCY as our main message.

10/6/2013 Doer of the Word of the Lord

Mirror-Master-Makeover-Masterpiece "Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what is says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it--not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it--they will be blessed in what they do." James 1:23-25

9/29/2013 Temptation Eyes!

Temptation plays no favorites. It ignores all human obstacles. It cares nothing about the time of day or night. It camouflages itself in any situation. It is prepared to pounce at any moment.

9/15/2013 Wise Up, O Church of God

"A good definition of Godly wisdom, therefore, would be: hearing and doing God's Word. God's Word is a divine prescription for how to live a life that never loses its joy no matter what circumstances you may find yourself in..." John Piper

8/18/2013 Prayer and Praise In Spiritual Warfare

There is a battle going on! "Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand."Ephesians 6:13

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
8/4/2013 "The Last Word on Worship"

No Compromise Rev. Charlie Harrah
7/28/2013 Pray His Glory

The Biblical meaning of "Christian" is 'the adherent of Christ.' In "ian" at the end is a Latin term to designate the slaves of the one with whose name it was compounded. Thus, the ending 'ian' when put to the name Christ simply means "I belong to Christ." Are you wearing His name humbly? Do you know His glory? Change your ways or change your name!

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
7/21/2013 Energized Exiles

Exiles resonate with the feeling of being stuck between two worlds. Exiles are called not to retreat, but to redeem the culture they live in. Exiles are not looking for comfort, but looking to crash the party so the devil doesn't get what he does not deserve.

No Compromise Rev Rudy Sheptock
7/14/2013 Fix Your Eyes On Jesus

God gives us the bad news to emphasize the positive! What will we see? Daniel had shaken by the dark side of his vision, but he was not stirred in his faith!

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
7/7/2013 Dictatorship or Discipleship

Disciples can't be mass produced! Disciples are formed one relationship at a time. Jesus doesn't rule like man does. God doesn't' use power to get us to love Him. Our will to love Him results in our allegiance and appreciation of His power and His potency in our lives. "If the Son sets you free~you will be free indeed." John 8:36

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
6/30/2013 God's Painting Project

Jesus was drawing huge crowds because He came into the towns and villages with a message of hope. He had something to offer that they were looking for. He was stirring their hearts with His message of hope and salvation.

No Compromise Rev. Tom Cura
6/23/2013 "No Compromise Means A Faith Without Fog"

Faith that escapes suffering and faith that endures have a common factor: Believing that God Himself is better than what life can give to you now and better than what death can take from you later.

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
6/16/2013 No Compromise Means The Need For Defiant Prayer!

Please, for your own spiritual life and reality and power, don't compromise the need to pray! Will yo say with Daniel: "You will have to take my life before you take my prayer"?

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
6/9/2013 "No Compromise-Judgment"

No Compromise Rev. Charlie Harrah
5/26/2013 No Compromise Means Taking Risks

Risk taking for God should be the normal behavior for the believer! The Bible is filled with examples of those who put their lives on the line so they could experience a heavenly happening!What about us?

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
5/19/2013 No Compromise Means No Other Gods!

Idolatry is the one great sin that all others come from!

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
5/12/2013 No Compromise Means Living Faith!

You may know the right things to do, but do you do the right things you know? Faith removes our pride and replaces it with our praise for God!Do you want to have your life filled with words of praise for God? Start believing what He says to you!

No Compromise Rev. Rudy Sheptock
5/5/2013 No Compromise Means No Cheating!

Cheating is when you mislead, deceive, or act dishonestly on purpose. Daniel passed the test without compromising his convictions. Your reputation is who other people think you are...Your integrity is who God knows that you really are!
