ROK-08 130317AM We were saved to serve God, but Satan wants to distract us from God using the world’s allurements. One of the greatest needs in life is contentment. Contentment comes only by the application of the doctrines of God to my life. Any lack of contentment signals a deficiency in experiencing God’s truth in […]
MOI-36 920126PM A gap, or unexplained period of time, follows the 69th week (Dan. 9:26). Daniel 9:27 references the end-time Antichrist; thus the gap is about 2,000 which anticipates the church age. 1.

SUF-02 950730PM Short Clip Now Paul wrote to only seven churches. Now that’s not because there weren’t more than seven churches. Just as John the apostle, recorded Christ’s words to seven churches, Paul the apostle recorded Christ’s word to seven churches and that is because the seven signify the whole. In God’s economy, seven is […]

As we open to Philippians 3, when Paul sat to write a letter inspied by God to the believers in Philippi, his letter was headed to a Roman colony. Like an island in a vast ocean, Roman colonies were settled with citizens and soldiers that had served well and were given the great benefits of citizenship in colonies of Rome.
In the last book of the Bible, we find that Jesus went on a journey visiting seven churches on that particular Sunday, recorded in chapters 2-3. Jesus went to church, reminding us He comes to watch us as we gather today.
When Jesus chose to use the number seven (always used in the Bible for completion, or a complete set of something) He was demonstrating to us what He saw in all churches at that time, in every place, and also I believe, what Christ’s church would be characterized by throughout all the ages.
The Day Jesus
Came to Church
Please open with me to Philippians 3:14-21.
Each of us who have had a spiritual heart transplant (Ezekiel 36:26-27), and have been born again (John 3), and have become a temple (I Corinthians 6:19-20) that the Living God lives in—are also now citizens of Heaven.
This morning, as citizens of Heaven, we have a duty God has given us to expose evil. But as we expose evil in our world we live in, we are also to declare Christ’s power to liberate and forgive sinners.
