Two Laws – August 8

Dan Serns Worship Service 3 Comments

304127_2354121656966_325120241_nBefore Jesus comes back, God’s final people on earth will keep all His commandments because they love and trust Jesus (Revelation 14:12; 1 John 5:3; James 2:10-12).

But there is great confusion in the Christian world over God’s commandments. Are some more important than others? Was the law done away with? Do some statutes no longer matter? Does the new covenant do away with the need for the law of God?

During the month of August we will let the Bible give us clear answers to these questions as we study The Law and the Covenants. This series will be very helpful for every believer who wants to live a life of loving obedience to their Creator.

150+ Years of God’s Final Movement – July 25

Dan Serns Worship Service Leave a Comment

WorldChurchMapEn-2015God is doing some unbelievable things around the world through the humble, persistent efforts of His final movement. He is doing some amazing things right here in the DFW Mission Field. We are learning to relive the Book of Acts in the Bible!

Why? Because Jesus wants everyone on earth to know that He loves them and that He is coming again soon.

Throughout history, whenever the Lord enters into a covenant with His people (e.g. Noah’s family, Children of Israel, Early Christian Church, Remnant Church) He does mighty things FOR them so that He can do mighty things for the world THROUGH them. We invite you to finish our three-month journey with us as we look at God’s Movements in History and His final movement on earth today!

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we look at how God is at work in His final movement around the world and how He might work in you to do something great. Feel free to invite friends.

The Great Disappointment – June 27

4178d2b8c295cefa325e09723fcc75ffWhat do you do when you are disappointed, seriously disappointed? Do you lash out at someone? Do you go into hibernation? Do you give up on your hopes and dreams?

In the early 1840s large numbers of people from many different religious backgrounds on several continents thought that Jesus was coming back to earth on October 22, 1844. Based on their study of the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation they were excited that soon they would see their Savior and Lord face-to-face. Some left their fields unharvested. Others sold their businesses.

When the date came and went there was severe disappointment. Some turned their backs on God. Others kept setting dates for Jesus’ return over the next decade or so. But a small group said “We must go back to God’s Word and study it again to see where we were wrong.” As they studied more deeply than they had ever studied before they started discovering Bible truths that had been lost for centuries. This humble group was used by God as the nucleus of His final movement on earth!

When we are severely disappointed, if we admit our false hopes and turn to Jesus and study His Word more intensely we will be rewarded with renewed and better placed hope.

Throughout history, whenever the Lord enters into a covenant with His people (e.g. Noah’s family, Children of Israel, Early Christian Church, Remnant Church) He does mighty things FOR them so that He can do mighty things for the world THROUGH them. We invite you to take a three-month journey with us as we look at God’s Movements in History and His final movement on earth today!

Passing the Baton – June 20

In the Olympics, the relay race is often won or lost based on how well the baton is passed from one runner to the next. And in the race, often rat-race, of life the men who are successful are those who have learned to pass on to the next generation the values that really matter.

As we approach Father’s Day weekend it is important for all dads, and all men whether dads or not, to reflect on those things that are really most important to them and to find way to effectively pass them on to the next generations.

Join us for Men’s Ministry Sabbath June 20 at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we look at ways to positively influence future generations. Feel free to invite friends, especially men and the women who admire them!

Early Christian Church – May 30

The disciples couldn’t forget Jesus’ very last words as He drifted up into the clouds on His way to heaven. “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). And that’s exactly what happened!

In Acts 1 Jesus went up. In Acts 2 the Holy Spirit came down. In Acts 3 the church went out into Jerusalem and Judea to witness for Jesus. In Acts 4 the persecution began.

But the stronger the persecution the faster the church grew. And finally, after Stephen’s death at the hands of the Sanhedrin in Acts 7, we see the church exploding beyond the borders of Judea into Samaria and the rest of the Gentile world (Acts 8f.).

This was truly a movement of God, with the timing of Acts 7-10 prophesied by the prophet Daniel more than 5 centuries before (Daniel 9:24-27; Ezra 7:13-26).

Throughout history, whenever the Lord enters into a covenant with His people (e.g. Noah’s family, Children of Israel, Early Christian Church, Remnant Church) He does mighty things FOR them so that He can do mighty things for the world THROUGH them.

Children of Israel – May 23

Life was hard and it was about to get harder. The Children of Israel once were respected relatives of Joseph, but now, years later, another Pharaoh had enslaved them. They worked long hours. They felt the taskmasters whip on their backs. Their baby boys were being killed. Many had compromised their faith in the Lord and no longer believed that He could help them.

But then, in a few short weeks, everything changed. Moses and Aaron arrived with a message from the Lord. Pharaoh got angrier and harsher. The plagues began to fall. And then, at the end of a 430 year time prophecy, to the very day (Exodus 12:40-41), the entire group of 600,000 families left Egypt!

Throughout history, whenever the Lord enters into a covenant with His people (e.g. Noah’s family, Children of Israel, Early Church, Remnant Church) He does mighty things FOR them so that He can do mighty things for the world THROUGH them.
