A Memorial Day Sermon: Remember!!:
On this Memorial Day we want to properly honor those who gave their all that we might keep and enjoy the freedoms that we have as Americans. Yet, as much as we are grateful for those freedoms, there is a greater freedom that is found in the sacrifice of One, the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who takes away the sins of the world. So, let us remember!!

Paul's Prayer for the Colossians-The Knowledge of the Will of God:
As we move into our study of the book Of Colossians, we see that right away Paul prays for these believers. A key part of this prayer is that that would, "be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God". Sounds great! How do we do that? Let's find out together!

Preaching in the Last Days: As we see this world becoming more and more lawless and the return of Christ fast approaching, the faithful minister of the Gospel must do one thing, and he must do it with urgency and unapologetically-preach the Word! In this day of itching ears and a sugar-coated gospel we must proclaim the truth of God's Word!

Jesus Taught Revelation 6 and the Seals:
As we continue our study of end times prophecy, we must notice the correlation between Jesus' teaching in Matthew 24 about the last days and the writing of John in Revelation 6 about the seven seals. If we compare them side by side, we will see that they are both about the same thing! And so, by putting the two together there is much that we can learn and understand.

Easter Sermon-While It Was Still Dark:
As dawn was approaching, Mary found herself going to the tomb of Jesus "while it was still dark". But the greatest darkness was not that of the early morning hours, it was the darkness of that horrific day just a short time before when Jesus was crucified on a Roman cross. It was the darkness of emotional turmoil at the loss of a dearly loved friend and the confusion of dashed dreams; it was the spiritual darkness of promises unfulfilled and hopes shattered; it was the darkness of physical exhaustion; everything seemed dark now. And yet...! And the same is true for us today. My prayer is that you will find encouragement and hope as you see your darkness torn asunder by the glorious light of the resurrected Christ!

Here Comes the King! A Palm Sunday message:
On this Palm Sunday we're going to compare two different times when Jesus arrived on the scene. The first will be that day He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey as the promised King of Israel. The second arrival we will look at is in the throne room of Heaven as the Father holds out a scroll and, for the moment, John wonders if there is anyone worthy to take and open its seals. This is when Jesus, the Lion and the Lamb, arrives on the scene! We will see many similarities and one significant difference!

The Day of the Lord:
The Day of the Lord is a topic that is very rarely preached or taught in our day, yet it is of extreme importance to a biblical understanding of the last days! What is the Day of the Lord? Why is it so significant? When does the Day of the Lord occur? How can I know when the Day of the Lord is near? Today's message will hopefully answer some of those questions and more. We must get a grasp of this incredible prophetic event!

Laying the Groundwork from the Book of Revelation:
As we begin to dig into the study of the last days, I have chosen to use the book of Revelation as the framework upon which we will build. We will not cover every point or verse in Revelation, instead we will use it as the skeleton upon which the body of end times teaching will be developed. This message covers a few points in chapters 1-4 of Revelation with our main focus settling on chapter 5.

The Mystery of Lawlessness and the Lawless One:
As we look at the world around us, it's pretty obvious that things are beginning to really spin out of control (man's control, not God's). One area in particular seems to have just gone off the rails, and that's the level of lawlessness we see. And what is most alarming is that it's not just in the world that we see it, but in the church, as well. Is this a sign of the times? Is the return of Christ near? How should we as Christians respond to both the world and the Church?

The Testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy:
The prophecies of Scripture are some of the greatest proofs to the veracity of Scripture. Yet, many Christians ignore prophecy because they can't understand it or it's too controversial. In this introductory message to end times prophecy we will see that if Jesus Christ is the central focus of the study of prophecy, then we can learn much and be strengthened in our faith.

A Challenge to the Church in America:
The Church in America has fallen asleep and the society around us considers us irrelevant. The country is now trying to silence the Church completely. The issues of gender equity, racism and BLM, immigration, Critical Race Theory, and many more are not ultimately about bringing down the American government or economic systems of this country, they're about erasing our Judeo-Christian foundation and removing the God of the Bible from public life! The Church MUST wake up and advance the cause of the Gospel in our nation!

Marks of an Overcomer:
Jesus Christ came into this world to do the will of the Father, which was to die for the sins of the world. Once we come to faith in Jesus Christ, we need to realize that He didn't come just to save us from sin and to get us into Heaven. He came that we might live a life of righteousness that overcomes the world, the flesh, and the devil. John gives us the marks of the person who is living that kind of life-a life that honors the Lord Jesus Christ!

Looking Back-Looking Ahead:
Even though we live in the present, it's always a good idea to look back at where we came from and to look ahead to where we are going. In this message we will look back at 2021 and ahead to 2022 with an eye on 3 different areas: the church in America, HillCity Church, and the nation. What can we learn from 2021 that we can apply to 2022 in each of these areas and, more importantly, how does Scripture speak to this?

Throughout this whole book John has been warning us of a false gospel and a false profession of faith. He now comes to the revealing of false teachers and prophets. His warning is very direct and dire: false teachers are among you and will deceive people! Therefore, we must test the spirits to see where the teaching is coming from. Is it from God or is it from the spirit of antichrist? and how can we be sure? KNOW THE WORD!!

We live in a day where we are identified by our skin color, gender, or sexuality. It might be our job or our family that we are identified by.

Remembering the Vision
When I first came to HillCity Church God laid a vision upon my heart for what He had us to do. The statement that sums it up is this, "By God's grace, we will love the unloveable, touch the untouchable, and do the impossible as we grow up in Christ and go out in love". Since I became pastor a full year ago we have seen many new faces come in and so I thought that it was time to revisit the vision.

The Gospel of NO
Israel was in a bad place. According to verse three of 2 Chronicles 15 they had no idea who the true God was, no one to teach them who God was, and no influence of the Word of God upon them. This last one was the root of the problem and the reason they were facing judgment. The same is true for the church in America today. Many "Bible believing" churches in America today have the same issues. Why? Because thery have forsaken the Word of God for gimmicks and entertainment. The church needs to get back to the centrality of God's Word!

A Sinner's Hope
The party was going along just fine until "she" showed up. You know, "the sinful woman". And yet her presence brought forth a great truth from the lips of Jesus, "her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.” Yes, friend, there is hope for sinners like you and me.

A Biblical View of Suffering Part 1
We don't like to think about suffering, yet it comes to all of us sooner or later. Some of us have suffered much throughout our lives. What does the Bible have to say about suffering and our response to it? Why does God allow suffering when He is more than capable of ending it? Is suffering meant to simply be endured or does God want to do something through it? Hopefully these questions and more will be answered as we work through this 2 part message.

Jesus' Prayer for Believers
Just before His anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane and agony on the cross we see one of the most intimate moments that Jesus spent with His disciples as He prayed for them and those who would believe through their testimony. There is so much for us to learn as we look at this prayer: the centrality of the cross, the significance of truth, and the seriousness of unity. As we work through this passage we will see exactly what this prayer means for us.

You Are God's Plan
The message of the cross is not very well accepted in our day. As a matter of fact, by many, it is considered absolute foolishness! And yet it is the message that God has given us to share with the world. And you are His plan to accomplish that! Do you feel weak? Foolish? Unworthy? Then you are just the person God is looking to use! Why? Because then He receives all the glory! Let's look at this passage from 1 Corinthians 1 together and see what God has in store for those He wants to use.

There is a lot of confusion and misinformation today about the mark of the beast. Is it possible it's out there now? Can I accidentally take the mark?

Christmas and Communion
We don't often put Communion and Christmas together, but neither one means anything without the other. The death and resurrection of Christ would have no meaning or significance if the sinless Son of God had not been born, and without the death and resurrection of Christ the manger would have no meaning. The two must go together, hand in hand, for the birth, death, and resurrection to any eternal impact on our lives.
