In this message, Jeremy Hoyt from InFaith Ministries, instructs us about total forgiveness. Life is messy because it involves people. By looking at the life of Joseph, we can learn how to forgive completely and the freedom that comes from forgiveness.
In this message, Pastor Chuck finishes his two-part series on Daniel by looking at some of the dreams within the book of Daniel.
In today`s message , Pastor Chuck Anderson speaks from the book of Daniel. It talks about how Daniel and 3 other men were placed in Babylon under the rule of Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel felt in his heart if he ate the food it would defile himself. Why did he not give in? He depended on God. Some time after Nebuchadnezzar began to have dreams which he could not remember. He asked astrologers, magicians, and sorcerers for answers which none of them had. Daniel , through prayer to God, interpreted Nebuchadnezzar`s dreams. Do those dream prophecies apply to our future? God will come back and we are to depend on him. Do not be afraid of what tomorrow holds!
Mark Carlton is a professor in Colby Kansas and has been as pastor for 40 years. He preached from 2 Timothy 3-4 about how important it is to be centered in God's Word during perilous times. Even when the Bible is counter-cultural, it is important to read, understand, and teach it to others.
Today’s message is from the book of Esther. 100 years has passed since the Jews have left Judah. 30 years prior to this story, 50 thousand Jews had returned to Jerusalem and started to rebuild the Temple and the altar. The Jews that stayed behind integrated into society. Esther was an orphaned Hebrew who was raised by her cousin, Mordecai. The story takes place in Susa, the capital of the Persian Empire, who had conquered the Babylonians.
In Esther, we also learn about the Feast of Purim that the Jews celebrate. “Pur” is the word for “casting lots” and can also mean “rolling the dice.” Throughout today’s story, we are going to see several different times where people roll the dice and leave their fate up in the air. We are also going to see the truth of Proverbs 16:33: “The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord.”
