Sunday, January 15 – The Holy Spirit at Work
Ezekiel – Part 19
God informs the Israelite elders through Ezekiel that they will be made to “pass under the rod” of judgement and that only a remnant will ever return to the land.
Jesus Christ, the Word, the Voice of creation, the Life of man, the Breath of life, the Divine, the Baby, the man on the Cross.
How to be Saved
Mike goes through over 20 scriptures each of which numbers a different element in the scheme of salvation. None of which can be lifted out of context and held up as the only element necessary.
Ezekiel – Part 18
Sin brings destruction upon any people and sin brings destruction on God’s people. The elders of Israel come to Ezekiel and dare to question God.
Freedom in Jesus
Sin is like a cancer in our bodies, bearing its destructive fruit. Sin has entered the “main stream”. It has become the popular culture and the family unit is being destroyed.
The Blessings of Persecution
Mike lists several blessings that come with the persecution that Christians may face when they truly take a stand for Christ.
