Hebrews 13:2

Angels are God’s Servants.

They are supernatural beings created by God and for God’s glory.

“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
Hebrews 13:2

Angels are basically three things.

Angels are worshipers.

Angels are also warriors.

Angels are messengers.

Angels often give you direction.

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 1:20

“Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the Moabite officials. 22 But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the Lord stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field.”
Numbers 22:21-23a

Angels protect you from danger. Angels can direct you. Angels can minister to you.

They can minister God’s love and healing and power to you.

“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
Hebrews 1:14

“An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.”
Luke 22:43

We fight from a position of strength!

The Table
Luke 14:1-24

Jesus’ ministry was marked by fellowship, communion, and eating with a variety of people.

Let us look at three specific manners we must follow if we want to stay at the table.

The meal should heal.

The best way to come to the meal is to keep your eyes on Jesus.

“Do not blow the nose or throw any bows!”

“Outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10

Jesus is a clique buster.
Jesus is a comfort zone destroyer.

Excuses can get you excused!

“Excuses are the cradle…that Satan rocks men off to sleep in.” Dwight L. Moody

A dinner date is required.

If you are comfortable it may be a good indication that we are complacent.

Birthday of the Church – Past, Present, and Future
Acts 2:1-13

It was also called the Feast of Weeks.

Pentecost was a time of celebration people would feast and be thankful for what God had already given them and for the provision He would provide in the future.

The Holy Spirit has been associated with wind before.

The Holy Spirit is available for everyone who believes in Jesus Christ and He will stay on a permanent basis.

The Holy Spirit provides us the environment needed to have a personal relationship with God.

We have the constant ever-present help of the Holy Spirit with us.

We have God who is the Guide and Helper.

We have God who gives a power to resist temptation and sin.

We have God who enables us to see what is good and right in situations.

We have God who convicts us of our errors that we might do right.

We have God experiencing our sin with us as we do it grieving Him.

We have access to God through prayer even when we do not know what to say.

Pentecost means that you and I each have a job to do as believers in God’s Church.

Sermon Audio: What A Waste

What A Waste
Judges 13-16

Another type of waste that happens far too frequently, and really hurts to see, is the waste of a person’s life.

We are going to look at: What Samson Had, What Samson Did, What Samson Lost, and What Samson Learned.

Samson had parents who wanted him and believed in him, and Samson was also set aside by God.

Samson did whatever he wanted to do!

Samson knew that this marriage was against God’s will.

This act was the beginning of the end of Samson, as he would continue on this downward spiral of self-pleasure and self-gratification.

But Samson had forgotten that though his earthly father could not see and did not know, His Heavenly Father both saw and knew.

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:1

“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you do not fall.” I Corinthians 10:12

Because he did whatever he wanted, he lost every bit of it and more.

He lost his strength. He lost his eye sight. He lost his freedom. He lost the presence of the Lord.

He learned the truth. He learned he had sinned. He learned he had to repent.

Samson learned that God can and will forgive and restore.
