The last twelve books of the Old Testament are known as "the Minor Prophets." They are "minor" not because they are less important than the other Old Testament prophets, but because their messages are generally shorter and more succinct. The Minor Prophets are filled with exhortations from men, moved by God, who spoke out against the social and cultural sins of their day. They called people to repentance. They challenged people to turn to God. Sometimes their hearers heeded the message, and ...

The Ten Commandments have been, without a doubt, the most influential document upon human culture, in general, and upon American culture in particular - framing both the social and legal foundations of our American Society. In Colossians 2:16-17 and Mark 7:18-23, we find that the ceremonial and dietary aspects of the Old Testament law are no longer binding; however, the moral code is still intact. The Ten Commandments are the summary of God's moral code and are intended to shape the way we l ...

Jesus is coming again! There are three times as many prophecies in the Bible concerning the second coming of Jesus than there are prophecies concerning His first coming. In the book of Revelation, God pulls back the curtain and allows us to have a glimpse of things that are to come. He shows us the Judgments, the Antichrist, the False Prophet, the rise and fall of the one-world economic and political system, and the Battle of Armageddon, to name a few scenes. But He also shows us how He resc ...

The first eleven chapters of Romans are DOCTRINAL, but the last five chapters of Romans are very PRACTICAL. And one of the themes Paul stresses in the last five chapters is our personal responsibility regarding how we treat one another. In fact, Paul uses the phrase “one another” ten times in the closing five chapters to help us understand the prac…

Whenever we face a major decision in life, it’s important to discern God’s will on the matter. What is God’s will for where I live? Who I marry? What career path I take? The questions are endless. And God has a perfect will for your life. But even if you don’t hit the “bullseye” and discern His “perfect” will, there is still grace for God’s childre…

Does God predetermine some people to go to Heaven and others to go to Hell? Did Jesus die only for the Elect (those whom God decided to save)? Does man have a free will to choose Jesus, or is that God’s choice? Pastor Gary answers these questions and more in today’s teaching on predestination and election.…

Are the Jewish people God’s “chosen people”? And if so, why have most Jews not accepted Jesus as Messiah? Has the Church “replaced” Israel in terms of promises God made to her that now belong to the Church? Pastor Gary answers these and other questions in today’s study from Romans 9-11. In these three chapters, Paul addresses the subject of Israel …

When life is good, it's easy to quote Romans 8:28 that "all things work together for good." But when life is not so good, is this verse still true? Are other verses in the Bible still true when our life circumstances do not fit with the promises of the Bible? The answer is YES. It's not that the Bible promise is lacking, it's that our understanding…

“Why do good things happen to bad people?” This is a question that Asaph, the writer of Psalm 73, wrestles with as he juxtaposes the eternal destiny of the wicked with that of the righteous. Do you know where you would spend eternity if today were your last day on earth? In today’s message entitled “Which Side Are You On?”, Pastor Austin challenges…

Did you ever try running away from home as a kid hoping your parents would beg you to come back home? In Revelation 2, Jesus calls the Ephesian church to “Come back home!” Why? What were they doing wrong? Jesus commends them for all the things they’re doing well, but He says there is one thing they lack–love. It’s possible to do a lot of things for…

For the Christian there is a battle within—a battle between our spirit that wants to please the Lord, and our flesh that wants to please self. In Romans 8, Paul gives us three encouraging ways that the Holy Spirit helps us to fight the battle of the flesh and spirit: He empowers us, adopts us, and prays for us. Pastor Gary explains all this in toda…

In Romans 8, Paul opens and closes the chapter with two important exhortations: (1) There is no condemnation and (2) There is no separation from the love of God for those who are in Christ Jesus. Too many Christians still walk around under the heavy weight of condemnation, shame, and guilt. In addition, some Christians believe the lie that God does…

In Luke 19, Jesus sent two of His disciples to retrieve the young donkey on which He would ride for His triumphal entry into Jerusalem preceding His crucifixion. When the owners inquired as to why the disciples were taking their donkey, the disciples were to respond, "Because the Lord has need of it." The owners immediately and graciously complied.…

Since Christians are under grace instead of the law, the question becomes—is the law of God pointless now? Some Christians think that! But Paul says otherwise. In Romans 7, Paul gives us three reasons why God’s law is important in the life of the Believer today. Pastor Gary unpacks Romans 7 and also helps us to understand the battle that lies withi…

The Christian life will have its share of temptations. That’s because when a person trusts Christ as Lord and Savior, his or her spirit is regenerated but not the flesh. The flesh is constantly at war with the spirit so that the spirit wants to please God, but the flesh wants to please self. In Romans 6-8, Paul gives us a few directives about how t…

When Adam and Eve sinned against God in the Garden of Eden by eating from the one tree that God had warned them not to eat, the human race became tainted. The genetic code of the human soul became permanently altered, and thus all of the descendants of Adam inherited the same sinful nature. That’s why Paul says in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned”…

The light of God’s glory in our nation has grown dim due to our rebellion and disobedience. God’s glory has even grown dim in the walls of our churches because we have strayed from His Word. This was the story of the Israelites in Exodus 33. God’s glory and presence would no longer travel with them to the Promised Land due to their sin and idolatry…

There are a lot of people in the world who have no hope—overwhelmed with grief, or pain, or sorrow, or anxiety—regretting the past, uncertain about the present, or worrying about the future. But God offers us a HOPE that the world does not have. In Romans 5, Paul tells us that there is a path toward hope that begins with suffering, and includes per…

The world says, “Man is basically good.” But God’s Word says, “Man is basically bad and in need of a Savior!” Since man is guilty before God and deserves punishment, the question is—How can we be made right with God? Paul answers that question from three different angles. Join Pastor Gary as he teaches through Romans 3-4 to unpack what the Lord say…

Some people are self-righteous and they judge everyone else by their own standard. Some people are overrighteous and they pride themselves in being better than everyone else. But both are sinful before God. In fact, ALL of us are “guilty as charged.” Paul makes the case that no one has an excuse for denying or disobeying God because He has revealed…

What does a culture of any nation look like when it excludes God? Take a look around at American culture right now. It looks like that! Even though Paul wrote Romans 1 in the first century A.D., what he describes then is just as apparent now. When man removes God from the equation, man resorts to his base nature, and our base nature is pretty perve…

There is a common saying… “There’s some good news, and there’s some bad news.” That saying could describe the book of Romans. It has a lot of good news (in fact, the word “gospel” means “good news”). But the book of Romans also has some bad news about God’s wrath and how we deserve it because of our sinfulness. Paul writes a commentary on the cultu…

Two of the most dangerous words in the English language are “I promise”. Many of us have been hurt by broken promises, and others of us have not kept our word. Can we really trust God to make good on His promises in the Bible? In today’s message, Pastor Austin unpacks some of the Old Testament prophecies concerning the Messiah and reveals four prom…
