This sermon is a revamp (redo / makeover) of the sermon "Beautiful." It is essentially the same message except in this recording I add in some key information that was not mentioned in the original recording to enhance the message and give more glory to God for the wake-up call and transformed mind I received. God is looking for beautiful hearts. Are you?
the reunion (part 2 of "guilty by association" & "I just can't wait to be king")
This sermon is part 2 of "Guity By Association" and "I Just Can't Wait To Be King." This message will have you singing, "Reunited and it feels so goooood."
Don't take It personal (revisited)
In this message, we will revisit the sermon “Don’t Take It Personal (Dust Off Your Shoes).” Also, this message gives is an update for those who felt that the original sermon was for them. We will look into even more examples of "vineyard fights." We will find out why some folks have lost their "vision." And... we will look into a demonic spirit that is on a rampage right now. Wake up, Samsons!
when the church chooses death (spiritual bowling)
Right before Jesus was put to death, his persecuters chose their very own "death" by making an ironic decision... How sad. How hilariously sad.
guilty by association
What happens when you go from being a radical Christian, to being a comfortable Christian that watches radical Christians be persecuted without lending a helping hand? Simply put, this sermon is for the "Peters."
when 'keeping it real' goes wrong
This sermon is about having a change of heart... and a bad attitude! In a world where "keeping it real" can also mean being rude, loud, disrespectful, and overly-aggressive just to prove a point, it is vital to your Christianity to realize that having a bad attitude on purpose (even as a trend) will stunt your spiritual growth. You must be willing to let go of old mindsets and put away childish things in order to fully put on the "new man" and be a "new creature" in Christ.
ANd it shall turn to you...
This sermon asks a very important question: In Christianity, what is your main goal? Turning a profit, or turning out a testimony? The answer will determine just how far you're willing to go be "about the Father's business." Also, what's more important to you? The admiration of people or the blessings of Abraham? They may not always go hand-in-hand.
i just can't wait to be king
Many of us know the song, "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" from the movie The Lion King. Simba wanted right away to go from one position (prince) to the highest position (King). And some of you may also be wanting to "level up" (move up to a higher ranking position) in your life. Maybe you just want a role of leadership in your workplace, household, friendships, etc., and you're wondering if God is even acknowledging your prayers for help and favor. But there could be just ONE thing holding you back from going to the next level. And what if you're not really waiting on God, but rather God is waiting on you? Let's find out what it takes to go from the "shepherd" to the "King."
Invitations or imitations
This sermon is about being the Bride of Christ. Have you become so self-righteous that you have gone from being holy to holier-than-thou? Have you become such a stumbling block to those that are trying to be holy that they flee instead of accepting the invitation to the wedding supper and becoming part of the fold? Is it to the point where you try to pick and choose who you think is worthy enough to be fellow members of the Bride of Christ as if you are God the Father yourself? If so, this may be for you.
salt vs sugar (The glitch)
This sermon is basically a two-in-one message. The first half explains how we as Christians should be "the salt of the earth." The second half is for the people who have been in a full-on rebellion ever since the "Death Warrant (The Fountain of Youth)" message. Some of you just recently had a huge wake-up call and you have found out the hard way that the detour that you have purposely taken will NOT work. The light at the end of your tunnel is not what you thought it was and you have now started to reap what you have sown. If you are ready to get out, God will help you. But there's a catch: You may have to accept a video game type of "glitch" as part of your end result.
the grand opening
Satan wants to enter into your environment. He wants to enter into your eye and ear gates so that he can have access to your mind and heart. He wants to enter into you sexually. He wants to opress you. Then he wants to possess you. Finally, he will want you to betray Jesus. Over. And over. And over. The only way to get him out... is to cry out! Don't let Satan enter in to any grand openings.
what does the fox say?
This sermon answers the question: "What Does The Fox Say?" We also find out what Jesus has to say to the "fox." Also... who's mission are YOU on? Jesus' mission or the fox's mission? Remember, all things are possible through Jesus Christ. However, with the fox, it's only "Mission: Impossible."
blood on your hands! (Don't sleep with Jezebel!)
Simply put, this sermon... is for those who still won't listen. Now, fornication, adultery, and possible child molestation is in the mix for a small fraction. We are supposed to be children of the Most High God. Not just children. It's time for us to grow up and let go of past insecurities that we should have given over to God years ago. Will you be able to get it together in time to join the others in "The FINAL Countdown" before the countdown ends?
*NOTE: This message picks up where "They That Hear (But You Didn't Listen)" leaves off.
The underestimated joy of job
This sermon is about joy! When we think about the book of Job, we usually think about the subject of faith. But what if I told you that the first few chapters of Job were probably just as much about joy as they were faith (if not more)? In fact, Job not only had joy in his sorrow, he also had a higher level of joy in his sorrow during chapter 3 than many of us do in our most blessed and happyest times. Also, why was Satan so determined to get Job to curse God? The answer could be deeper than we think...
dirt don't hurt. Let it work!
Kids sometimes sing, "God made dirt, so dirt don't hurt. Put it in your mouth and let it work." However, there is a different kind of "dirt" that CAN hurt... but ONLY if you let it! It's called, "the past." The enemy may be trying to use people to dig up infomation about you from your past to try to hold against you. However, the information that they gather could backfire and set them up to have their very own secrets exposed. So when people put your "dirt" in their mouth, LET them! Don't let it hurt, let it work for your favor! Vengeance is the Lord's. Don't let the devil steal your joy. It's a distraction. Besides, that "dirt" is your testimony of what God has brought you from! You win!
Bullies, Buildings, & Bridges
When we think of bullying, we think of children's nonsense or teenage high school drama. But the problem is that this is still a huge issue in the Christian adult life. Because not only are Christians bullying others, Christians are also being bullied... by other Christians! We yell about being persecuted by non-believers but fail to see that many times we are persecuted by our very own.
Also in this message I share a story from my past to testify of God's perfect timing. His timing is not always our timing, but He is always ON time!
Hoarders, hypocrites, & Housetops
Some blessings are meant solely for you. But sometimes God blesses you so that you can be a blessing to somebody else. So when we become "spiritual hoarders," we hold on to blessings that God asks us to let go of, or we hold on to things that never really belonged to us in the first place. But the truth is, when we hoard things from God, we are actually covering up emotional baggage (or emotional garbage) inside of us. And because we refuse to deal with it, the end result is physical baggage and garbage that we cling to out of comfort or agenda. Eventually, you will grow tired, weary, and stressed trying to maintain the "blessings" that have now become burdens.
They That Hear... (But You didn't listen)
"The FINAL Countdown" was a two part message for those who accepted the truth and took heed to the warnings and wake-up calls in the the two part sermon "Death Warrant (The Fountain of Youth)." However, THIS message is for those who did NOT listen and accept reality, but instead decided to purposely continue to rebel in spite! And because of this, you are now in danger of having all that has been done in secret become exposed! What was done in darkness will be brought to the light before all. No one will be able to play pretend anymore. Time is running out.
whose blood do you choose?
We've all heard that expression, "Blood is thicker than water." It's our way of saying that we choose family/relatives over any body else. And that is cool and all... But is Jesus still number one in your life? The big question is: If you had to pick, Whose blood would you choose? Your personal bloodline? Or the blood of Jesus that saves you and washes away all of your sins?
They rejected Me, Not thee. (Jeopardy)
When you're an LGBT Christian or a supporter of those who are, sometimes people are not rejecting you, they are rejecting God working through you. But what happens when trouble comes your way and you find yourself in jeopardy for standing up for your beliefs? If you're not careful, it will be almost as if you really are on an episode of the game show "Jeopardy." Except instead of wagering your money, you'll be putting your Christianity and witness on the line. You must remain calm, stand in faith, and not "go for the bait."
