The True Nature of God, Pt.2


After a person receives Jesus Christ as his or her Lord, can they ever lose their salvation? “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall […]

The True Nature of God, Pt.1


A recent Gallup poll shows that 89% of Americans say they believe in God.  Another poll indicates that 79% Americans believe in God.  What is striking is that the number of believers is down by approximately 25% since WWII (gallup.com). Could it be that Christianity in America is in decline because we are busier, have many more distractions, our values […]

By PASTOR ROB GRANGER “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5, NKJV). Sunday morning, I had the privilege of hearing Travis Osborn, the green beret who was the first to make contact with Navy Seal, Marcus Luttrell, […]

Becoming A Giant Killer, Pt 3


If I were to take a survey, I wonder how many people believe that God controls any outcome.  Many Christians believe this.  However, the Word of God is clear that this is not the case.  The best way to truly know how God may respond in a situation is to see how He responded in the Bible.

Becoming A Giant Killer, Pt 2


Every person has the God-given right to become a giant-killer because they are made in the image of God.  While faith in the human spirit or faith in your own abilities might prove to be somewhat effective, faith in God is what causes us to overcome.  Anyone may overcome through a relationship with Jesus Christ.  God leveled the playing field […]

Becoming A Giant Killer, Pt 1.


“Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it.  Your servant has killed […]

To Unleash Heaven, You Must Know God


    Since the fall, God’s plan has been to restore relationship with mankind.  Before the time was right for Jesus to emerge as our Savior, God spoke to Moses to oversee the fashioning of the Ark of the Covenant; a chest made of wood, overlaid with gold, with cherubim positioned on the lid.  The Ark was to carry the […]

Who’s in charge of your life? Pt 2

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you” (Luke 10:19, ESV). These words of Jesus convey the idea to believers that we have been deputized under Him to act on His behalf in the world. The Greek word, “exousia” is the word “authority” […]
