Carrying Treasure, Pastor Phil Sessa

Posted on Updated on

2Corinthians 4:7, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

If you needed the greatest treasure you owned, transported to a group of people that you destined to receive it that who would you entrust with it? Would you give it to the fierce warrior, or perhaps the brilliant scientist? Maybe the military soldiers should be charged with so great a treasure. Read the rest of this entry »

Are You a Garbage Picker? Pastor Phil Sessa

1 Samuel 28:3 ,”Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land”

In this passage Prophet Samuel, who represented God’s voice, was dead. Saul had no communication with God because of his disobedience which will be seen shortly. It was similar to a soldier losing radio contact with their commanding officer at headquarters during a war. Read the rest of this entry »

Numbers 20:8, “Speak to the rock. Though God told Moses to take his rod with which He had performed many wonders in the past (Ex. 4:1–5; 7:19– 21; 14:16; 17:5, 6), he was only to speak to the rock for it to yield water. Numbers 20:10 you rebels. Instead of speaking to the rock, Moses spoke to the people, accusing them of being rebels against God”

By his actions, Moses joined the people in rebellion against God (see 27:14).”

In the book of Numbers chapter 20, MacArthur comments on Moses’ actions in the following: Moses was therefore kept out of the Promised Land because of his rebellion Read the rest of this entry »

The Lord Is At Work Behind The Scenes, Evans Olang

2Kings 7:1-20, “And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, why sit we here until we die?”

We all want to see things happening in our lives. Most don’t want to be in the same place forever so they hunger for change, for growth, for move. In my own life, I don’t want to see my life stagnant and I hope you are too. For whatever reason, we easily miss seeing things being manifested in our lives only to hear them mentioned by someone else. Read the rest of this entry »

Whose Voice Are You Listening To? Part 2of2, Evans Olang

1kings 13:16-17, “16 And he said, “I cannot return with you nor go in with you; neither can I eat bread nor drink water with you in this place. 17 For I have been told by the word of the Lord, ‘You shall not eat bread nor drink water there, nor return by going the way you came.’”

While we talk about the old lying prophet, can God use a false prophet? Absolutely. Can a false prophet say true things biblically? absolutely. Does saying some good things make them true prophets? Absolutely NOT. From what I read, anytime God used a false prophet, it was NOT to bring blessings but to bring judgment. Read the rest of this entry »

When The Going Gets Tough…, Part 2of5, Evans Olang

2Timothy 2:1-13, vs. “2 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ”

The epistle of 2Timothy are the final words of the great Apostle Paul to his own son in the faith Timothy. It’s an exhortation to Timothy to stand strong in the face of insurmountable difficulties ahead. As the final writing of Paul, it is tender, sympathetic, tearful, and yet heroic and stately.

Our Resources In Christ, Part 4of5, Evans Olang

Ephesians 1:18, “that you may know …, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints”

If a child was to appear in public hungry, sick and with rugged clothes, that child would not be bringing shame to himself but to his father primarily. Everyone will be asking, “whose child is this?” They may want to blame the father until they find out that the child may have neglected or even refused to receive everything the father has provided and in that he or she is bringing shame to his name.
