The Significance of the Name


Great sermon preached by my pastor! Names have a much greater significance than we realize, especially when it concerns ancient names.

Originally posted on The Life Church of Des Plaines: 3:11-14 “And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain. And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.”

Acts 4:10-12 “Be it known unto you…

He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man…

You Must Be Born Again


Best explanation of Old Testament principle of second-born I have ever seen!

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto…

Worship in David’s Church (Part 3)


Doing things God’s way is so much better than trying to do things my own way! The way my pastor compares David’s tabernacle and the New Testament church is mind-blowing! Enjoy!

When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.” (6-9) “And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter. And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference…

Dancing on Ashes

Their home wasn’t destroyed, but there was no electricity for a while. In 2008, arriving from Costa Rica, they got home on Thursday, and on Sunday, while at church, someone broke into their house and robbed them. In 2010, while in Greece, they got on a bus and his wallet got stolen, but all they took was the money, not the credit cards. The police found his wallet with all his credit cards and his driver’s license. In 2011, their home burnt down and they lost everything.

Are You Chasing the Wind?


Finding joy…

Do you enjoy the presents of God or His presence?

Where is the end of the rainbow? ‘Legend of the Leprechauns’ That leprechaun knows where the pot of gold is. We chase after him.

In Sicily, a long time ago, there was a convenience store that sold toys. One was a toy called ‘magic bubbles’. You could pull a tube out of the bottle and bubbles would appear. You could chase those bubbles, but when you caught them, they disappeared. It was a wonderful game, chasing after bubbles. Each one had a rainbow inside.

That game is not as fun for adults as for kids, but we still play that game.

In God’s presence is fullness of joy, but do we spend time in…
