Live By Faith NOT by Sight – April 29 – Hebrews 7:1-4 Giving to the One who is Worthy
 What are some of the things and people whom you view as great? For folks who have visited the Great Lakes in North America or the Great Wall in China, those are simply two examples of things that people consider great, and thus they carry that name. Alexander the Great is one person who many have considered to be great, and he too carries that title of "Great". But what about you? What do you consider as "great"? In the book of Hebrews, Abraham encountered the greatness of Melchizedek and gave him a tenth of everything that he had obtained in the battle he had recently won. We would like for you to consider how we have little difficulty giving to someone or something that we believe to be great, yet when it comes to giving towards the Kingdom of God we are often resistant or at least hesitant. That being said, we invite you to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton Folz based on Hebrews 7. We hope and trust that you will be challenged and encouraged.

    LIVE BY FAITH Not by Sight – Psalm 23 – April 22, 2018
    Psalm 23 is one of the most beloved and familiar poems in all of literature. It is often recited at a memorial service for a loved one to help encourage those who have come to grieve and pay their respects to the one who is deceased. Yet when the author David wrote these words they were based on real-life experiences he had encountered with almighty God. He is the kicker, the promises that can be drawn from the truth of this passage can only be claimed by one who had made the Lord God almighty their Lord and Shepherd. If you have surrendered your heart and life to Jesus Christ, then no matter what difficulty you are walking through, you can be assured that He is right beside you.

     Did you play an instrument in Middle School or High School band? Were you any good? Did you keep playing that instrument in college? In order to play a brass instrument well, it requires several things to be working together at the same time. First of all, it requires the breath of a musician blowing into the instrument... Secondly it requires the musician forming the notes by having his or her hands on the instrument... And Thirdly it requires a musician knowing what they are doing and having the skill to play notes in the correct order and at the right time to play the song that is enjoyed by listeners.

    In Christ Alone – Palm Sunday – Luke 19:28-20:8
     Have you ever gotten caught off guard by something in your blind spot? As Jesus entered into Jerusalem in what is known as "His Triumphal Entry" we see there is tremendous spiritual blindness by both the leaders and the general assembly gathered there for Passover. They were spiritually blind to what Jesus had come to accomplish, and the significance of His final actions. In the following message by Pastor Anton, he will be sharing some insights that can be gained from examining the emotions and actions of Jesus in His final days before dying on the cross of Calvery. We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes and follow along as you listen to the following message.

     What is the most valuable item you own? What object would you be willing to run into a burning house to save? *(after everyone else is safe and pets have been moved to safety) Is it your phone, tv, computer, or something entirely different? Now let me ask something more difficult, would you be willing to give or use up entirely that item or object to Jesus? 
    In Matthew 26, the Gospel writer accurately records an event prior to Jesus' death by crucifixion on the cross. It is in the anointing of Jesus by Mary in the town of Bethany. In the following message by Pastor Anton, he will be sharing truths that can be learned from the example of Mary giving her very best of Jesus her Savior.

    In Christ Alone – How to be ready for His arrival – Matthew 25
     What would you do to prepare if you knew that a burglar was going to break into your home at a certain time on a particular evening? Would you install an extra security camera, an extra deadbolt lock on the doors, or make sure to have all the windows locked? Maybe adopt a large dog with a strong loud bark? In Matthew 24, Jesus says that His return will come as unexpectedly as a thief in the night, but that all men and women are to be ready, to stay alert and be watchful. In the following message by Pastor Anton, we will be looking at the story of the Ten Bridesmaids. What can we learn from their example so that we can be ready for His arrival?

    In Christ Alone – Israel and the End Times – Matthew 24 and 1 Thessalonians 5
     "Bible Prophecy is given to prepare, not to scare us." It has been said that the more we know about the end times and the final days, the better equipped we will be for the current days. In the following message Pastor Anton will be teaching on God's special plan and provision for Israel in the final days. It should not astound us that the relatively small landmass known as The Nation of Israel is under constant attack from neighboring enemies because God's Word said that it would be until Jesus comes again. We would like to invite you to download the following teaching notes as you prepare to listen to the following message, we hope and trust that you will be encouraged in your journey.

    Do you like a difficult jigsaw puzzle? Does solving a 1,000, 2,000, or a 4,000 piece puzzle sound like something you would like to do in your down time? Understanding what the End Times will be like can feel like putting together a super complex jigsaw puzzle and as a result, many have abandoned trying to understand anything the Bibles says about the matter. In this week's message by Pastor Anton, he will be sharing truths about the Antichrist, the Battle of Armageddon, and where America as a nation might fit into the puzzle of the end times. Pastor Anton shares from his understanding of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church view of the end times. As you listen we hope that you will be challenged as well as encouraged in your walk with Jesus.

    In Christ Alone – Ready or Not Here Jesus Comes – Matthew 24
    Have you ever studied the end times prophecies written about in the Holy Scriptures? The revelation of the second coming of Christ is one of the most important and most frequently mentioned doctrines of the New Testament. One out of every twenty-five verses in the New Testament refers either to the rapture of the church or to Christ’s coming to reign over the world (cf. Jesse Forrest Silver, The Lords Return, p. 29). Yet, when we talk about it within the church, many believers want nothing to do with the conversation because they write it off as too confusing, or because it causes too much anxiety. We would like to invite you to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton as he explains some key truths found from Matthew 24 on this subject. We trust that you will be encouraged in your faith journey with Jesus by listening to this message.
