I can think of no better time than now to study the scripture for encouragement . the letter " Hebrews" was writen to encourage the people of their day. Many thing had taken place in the 1st church. We know through the study of the book of Act's that Christians were persecuted, beaten, some were forced to run for their lives and yes some even lost their lives. Their world looked, and felt out of control. It was very difficult time for the Christian to live in.

Our world often looks and feels out of control. Most of what we read, see on TV and talk about is negative.
things like Job security, health care changes, politics drama, and simply life in general caries the over cast of negativity. These are some of the reasons i believe we should look to the word of God for our strength and encouragement. I am going to do a light over look of the letter "Hebrews". My desire is to share the positive over views of this letter, to help us to see the present, and some of the future that our Lord has planned for His people. I will be adding to this post 1 to 2 times per week.

I do want to share this point -- this study is for the followers of Jesus Christ, better known as the Christian.

Hebrews 1: 1 - 3 the opening statement
1) ver 2 in these last days -- yes we are in the last days. We do not know when our Lord will return only that He will return.

2) In Matthew 28: 18 we are told that all authority has been given to Jesus Christ. that truth is now support with this statement in Hebrews. 1: 2b " God has appointed Him hier of all things and made the universe through Him. The Son is the radiance of God's Glory and the exact expression of His nature, sustaining all things by His powerful word." HCSB.
- I ask you to begin to think about what has been said.

a) God appoint Him Hier of all things. It all belongs to Jesus Christ and He is the one who sustains it all.
He is the one who has the authority to control it all.

Myself I am glad, even with all the problem it creates, I am glad He has not taken my free will from me.
because of free will we are allowed to choose how we will live our lives. The words we speak, the thoughts that fill our minds, the attitude we display, all of those things that make us individuals. For better and worse.

b) With that in mind I also believe that we should accept and understand Just who Jesus Christ is to us. I mean we need to look at it from His point of view. (God place everything under His authority.)

Everything includes you and me.

Question: Does your life reflect the fact that Jesus Christ is in charge of all things? Free will is a wonderful gift, however it does not change who Christ is. " God has appointed Him heir of all things." HCSB

Please take a moment and think about God's appointment and how you choose to live your life.

5 July 2016, the day after, and i believe the true fireworks have only begun. We will see an election like we have not seen before, we will see unrest in the world and in our own land. We as a people will learn to distrust people, more than we have ever thought we could. No I am not predicting the future, as much as I am paying attention to what is going on around us right now. Right now... the true test of our faith is found in our ability to trust Him, even when we do not like, want or believe what is going on around us right now. True faith requires action, real action from God's people. This action is simple, love the Lord your God with all your heart. Take the time to worship Him as He has designed us to worship Him in church Hebrews 10: 23 - 25 -- do not forsake, your faith, your brothers, and the assembling together. We must display our loyalty and love, if we are ever going to reach the one who do not have Christ. It is this simple, If you Christ ambassador, are unwilling to follow Him, why should they. Why should they. ... See MoreSee Less

Summer is here, Vacations, travel, water parks for the kids, and so much more. So much more... Paul in his letter to the people of Ephesus, gave one of the most powerful prayer request I have ever seen or read. Eph 1: 17 " I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him" (HCSB) Think about that for just a moment. What a gift that would be. To have a better and more complete understanding. Wow, then I pick up HIs word and read, and know that this prayer has been answered, We can have a better and more complete understanding of God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. All we haft to do is read His word. It really is that simple. Maybe this summer is the summer you can find just a little more time to sit down and enjoy the good book. Maybe? ... See MoreSee Less

Have we made it yet. It almost feels like summer, it just might be time to get out of the heat. Then we remember, Psalms 19:6 and we know there is no place to hide. Friends this leaves us with 2 choices, 1) accept the heat and find thing to do or 2) complain about the heat. Allot of life is that way. It is full of events and circumstances we cannot control, but we must live with them. (
Example,the summer heat.) We have a choice, we can accept the circumstances, get up, and begin to deal with it. or we can complain about it, cry about it, and then rollover and allow it to steal some of our lives. Now here is the hard part, everyone has a "yea. but". Everyone has a story, a struggle, a burden so difficult, it simple cannot be dealt with.yes I agree, some burdens need a little time to over come,however all burdens can be over come, through Jesus Christ. Even your yea but. amen. For some it just might be time for you to get up and start moving forward. amen Like if you agree. We are teaching in the book of Ephesians and God is dealing with some "yea Buts" of yesterday and today. Come and join us at 10:15 am, this Sunday morning. 7901 W Osborn Rd. Phoenix Az 85033

Summer is almost in full swing, we are looking forward to the normal water activities. To see the kids playing on the slip and slides, in the swiming pools, and even in the sprinklers. It bring back memories of when my dad would cut watermelon and serve it up ice cold on a hot July night, or when we would all load up in his truck and go camping by the river that never had any fish. :) The memories. What memories of summer do you have, and what memories will you create this summer. I know that this year our youth will be creating a wonderful set of memories at the new camp they will be apart of. I am very excited for them and cannot wait to here them all. Will, I must run, praying that you will enjoy a blessed day, pastor Mike. ... See MoreSee Less
