This Mother's Day celebration was given on May 13, 2012 and covers the story of Sarah who doubted God. She failed to trust that He would fulfill His promise to Abraham and decided to help Him out by taking matters into her own hands. As we remember, her failure to trust in God caused so many problems that to this day cause much strife in the world. The scripture is found in Genesis 21:1-3 KJV: "1 And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken...

The lesson was taught on May 6, 2012. Paul tells Timothy about the last days of this dispensation. We must discern the differences between the last days of Israel's dispensation and ours. In today's christendom, most people are looking for the last days of Israel and the return of Christ. Paul tells us the differences. The scripture is found in 2 Timothy 3:10-15 KJV: "10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I...

The lesson was taught on April 22, 2012. In studying Timothy's final message to us, we learn that in the last days of our dispensation, not the last days of the Jewish nation, that many counterfeits will arise. Many will be so effective they will deceive many believers. We must constantly be on guard and continue to study the word. The scripture is found in 2 Timothy 3:8-9 KJV: "8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest...

This lesson was given on April 15, 2012. The current condition of this country is really suffering. Paul's message to Timothy is also a message to us today. He tells us what to expect in the last days--not the last days that Israel is awaiting, but the last days of our administration. He tells us that these things will precede our last days. The scripture is found in 2 Timothy 3:1-8 KJV: "1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy...

This Resurrection Sunday sermon was taught on April 8, 2012. It covers the 4 "C's" namely, crowd, cup, crown and cross. The scripture is found in Matthew 28:1-10 KJV: "28 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and...

This lesson was taught by Derek on March 25, 2012. He reminds us that Christianity in America and the world is under attack. There is increasing hostility and intolerance. Paul told the Ephesians that they would suffer opposition both from without and within and this warning remains valid for Christianity today as well. The scripture is found in 2 Timothy 2:23-26 KJV "23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. 24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that...

This lesson was taught by Derek on March 11, 2012. He reminds us that some have their faith overturned because of false teachers who pervert the truth. The salvation of God is sure--He knows His own. Our problem is--do we know we are His? Each day we should thank God that we belong to Him. The scripture is found in 2 Timothy 2:19-22 KJV: "19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of...

This morning's lesson was given by Derek McCammon on March 4, 2012. More than ever in this day we must guard our hearts and minds, avoiding the vain babblings of this world's philosophies. As it was then, the same old false teachings are alive and well in our society. In his last letter to us, Paul warns us to be alert and on guard. The scripture is 2 Timothy 2:15-18 KJV: "15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17...

This lesson was taught on February 26, 2012. The scripture reading is 2 Timothy 2:14-18 KJV: "14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying...

February 19th, 2012

This lesson was taught on February 19, 2012 and notes that the Christian walk today is moving away from truth at a much faster pace, especially the truth given to us by Paul--namely the "mystery." We should never be ashamed of what God has given us in the fellowship of the mystery. The scripture reading is 2 Timothy 2:8-14 KJV: "8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: 9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that...
