Detours – July 9, 2017

Posted by on Jul 11, 2017 in Sermon |

One of the worst things you can do to a driver who is rushing from point A to point B, is to throw up the dreaded “Detour” sign to into their route. Throughout the bible, God used detours to recalculate the directions of lives of His people to be better aligned with His plans. I believe that God-detours still happen today to believers who are seeking God’s will and desires above all. Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good person are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Say, “I am a good person and my steps are ordered by Him. Carjacked A few months into my salvation, while working on a graphic design project for school, I decided to take a break, head to the store and pick up some drinks and some a frozen pizza from the neighborhood supermarket. As I was leaving, I told my mom of my plans, and set off on what should have been a 15 minute round trip. Just like previous nights, I was in, went straight to my beverage of choice, and stopped by the freezer section to pick up my Red Barron brand supreme pizza, checked out and started to make my way towards the door. As I approached the exit, God audibly spoke to me in the store, He said, “He is will carjack you.” Upon hearing that, I stopped, looked around and saw who God was talking about. He was a big white guy, bushy beard probably 6 foot 4 inches and 280 pounds. “Him?” I asked God, gesturing with my chin, so not to draw attention to myself. “Yes,” God replied. I said, “Praise God for saving me!” turned to go the other way before God spoke again… “Offer him a ride anywhere he wants to go.” I literally stopped in my footsteps, looked up to the sky and said, “WHAT!?!” I thought, “Ok, that can’t be God, I must be hearing the devil!” Pausing, I felt in my heart it was God. Not knowing His plans for the situation, I made a decision to be obedient. Lowering my head, I walked outside, right up to the guy. “Excuse me…” the man started. Interrupting him, I asked, “Would you like a ride sir?” In shock, the man… stuttering said… “Umm, ahh, well, yes.” I replied, “Great, I’m parked right over there, follow me.” We arrived at my truck and I put my groceries in the back seat, hopped in the drivers seat and watched the man approach the passenger-side door in my mirror. I watched him pause, adjust something in his belt/pants waist, cover it with his shirt and climb in the front seat. “Where would you like to go?” I asked the man. Again, hesitantly, he started to stutter and saying, “Umm, ahh, well, what?” Again, I asked, “Where would you like to...

Vital to Life – You’re the Antidote – Sermon – June 4, 2017

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Sermon |

Vital to Life – You’re the Antidote | June 4, 2017 A funny thing happened to me while at another church years ago. A prostitute walked in, sat down and mid-service got up, walked up to the piano, pounded on the keys, screamed and walked out of the church. Upon seeing this my friend Lisa and I went after her, to see if we could show her love and get her to stay. Upon reaching her, she was babbling and ranting… suddenly she paused, pointed straight at me, made eye contact and said… “You will burn this city down.” Instantly I knew it was God speaking through the prostitute, speaking something to be. I believe that when we started this church, we started the blaze. The people of the world are dying, infected by a poison that is slowly devouring them. The poison affects every person’s life differently, but it has claimed the lives of far too many. From the fall of man until now, sin, in all its sneaky ways, has stolen too many souls. The antidote to sin, like an antibody, lives within every believer. It is in and through Jesus Christ. There only one way to administer this antidote, it’s through God’s redemptive love. Scripture states that the borrower is a slave to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)  Meaning the price we pay to live a life apart from the life offered and demonstrated by Jesus Christ, can only be paid for with our lives and souls. We go about our lives, carrying the cure, within us, that will heal every person we encounter. Since starting God Manifest, I must have prayed for more strangers in the last two weeks, than I have in any two week period in the past six years. Recently, Olivia and I chase down a man in the ninety-nine cents store who had a stroke. This week, while I was at the bank, I saw an older woman with a cane whom I introduced myself and prayed for, she recently had hip surgery. A few weeks ago, I prayed for the cashier at Krogers who was coughing, sniffling, and very grouchy. While interviewing contractors for some work we need around the house, we found out that the contractor’s son, had pain in his back and leg, we told him a few testimonies, and prayed for him. Then at the end of their presentation, their father, a former pastor, asked if we could pray for his knee, with joy, we absolutely did. I wonder what these people are thinking as we approach them with a smile on our faces. Or what they think about us when they’re telling us about their affliction and we look at one another and smile. What we’re thinking is, “God brought you to us because He is about to do something amazing.”  “We can’t wait to see what...
