"A Deep-Dive into the Word" with Pastor Terry Reynolds

Isaiah 36-37 Part 2

December 9, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Who do you turn to when you need advice or help? If you always turn to God in prayer, then you’re ahead of the pack! It would be nice if that were always the case, but how often do you look to your own ability or reach out to a friend to help? All too often prayer seems to be the last thing on the list. Today Pastor Terry even challenges those in leadership to seek God first and ask for direction. Can you imagine a world where everyone was encouraged to pray for guidance and wisdom before taking action?

Isaiah 36-37 Part 1

December 2, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Have you ever been challenged or criticized for your faith? Some people will use the tiniest things against you as if the smallest detail can somehow disprove the overwhelming evidence of God. Today Pastor Terry describes what it was like for the early church and its believers. It was even more common then to belittle and refuse the word of God. Much like today, the people wanted proof! They seemed unwilling to accept anything they didn’t see firsthand. Isn’t it funny how some things never change?

Isaiah 35 Part 2

November 25, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Today Pastor Terry teaches on the sensitive subject of death. It’s never an easy topic to discuss, but hopefully, you will find his commentary uplifting. Really…he explains that what is waiting for you is so much better - there is nothing to mourn. Almost everyone has experienced loss in some way, and many have even dealt with death. For those who can truly say they believe in the one true God, they have peace in the knowledge that the eternal life God promised was given and is waiting for them as well. 

Isaiah 35 Part 1

November 18, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Have you ever thought about what it will be like as your soul moves from death to new life in Heaven someday? Maybe you have an idea of what that will be like, but today Pastor Terry offers a second opinion. He describes a highway that requires a ticket to enter. He says the highway takes you to your place in Heaven, but without a validated ticket, you will be sent back in the other direction. He goes on to explain how to get your ticket validated. Hopefully, the answer doesn’t surprise you.

Isaiah 33-34: Insights to Armageddon Part 2

November 11, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Where do you get your news from? There is no shortage of media outlets these days, and it seems everyone is trying new and interesting ways to deliver information to you. It’s harder now than ever before to know what you can trust and what’s being broadcast just for ratings. Today Pastor Terry reads scripture that speaks to this very problem. Not only are you called to be discerning in what you believe, but the “nations of the world” are called to align on a single source of truth. Truth in our Living God.

Isaiah 33-34: Insights to Armageddon Part 1

November 4, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Do you know anyone that thinks being a Christian is too hard? If you know anyone like that or have found yourself feeling that way in the past, then today’s message from Pastor Terry is for you! You see, it all comes down to one simple rule - the golden rule, that you learned as a child. That rule has never changed, even though it may have gotten harder to follow over the years. Learn to see through the problems you face each day to reveal the people who are on the other side who need to receive your kindness.

Isaiah 31-32 Part 2

October 28, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

“Let the ways of the world and the things of the world die!” Pastor Terry is speaking plainly and from the heart today. He brings truth from God’s word that might hit a little too close to home for some of you. If you find yourself feeling convicted by these words, then use that as a reminder to stop whatever you’re doing and spend some time in prayer. You will find that as you pay more attention to these nudges in your life, your relationship with God, and everyone else, will grow deeper and stronger.

Isaiah 31-32 Part 1

October 21, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

You know that moment when you go from total confusion to a clear understanding of something? You probably know it as an “ah-ha” moment. You go from looking at a situation or a project in distorted low-resolution to seeing it in full HD in the blink of an eye. Today Pastor Terry speaks about your growth in faith this way. When you accepted Christ you were not only born again, but your eyes were opened to God’s grace and mercy. You were no longer seeing His goodness distorted but rather in full HD and brilliant color! 

Isaiah 29-30 Part 3

October 14, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

There has been a lot of discussion about heaven and hell for many years. Most people, whether they attend church or not, have heard a ‘fire and brimstone’ message in their lifetime. If you were to ask some of the people you work with and those in your social circles, many of them would say they do not believe in a literal heaven or a literal hell. In his message today, Pastor Terry gives several explanations of what happens to us when we die, and what the Bible says about heaven and a literal hell.

Isaiah 29-30 Part 2

October 7, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Our society has developed its own set of rules and values, based on what makes a person ‘feel good.’ We have churches and places of worship that have adopted this same persuasive style, by preaching and teaching what they think people want to hear, not a message driven by the Spirit of God. Today, Pastor Terry talks about how Old Testament people didn’t want to hear the things of the Spirit, much like people in our society today. Their ‘itching ears’ wanted to hear what they wanted to hear.

Isaiah 29-30 Part 1

September 30, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

There has been a popular trend in our society to live life with a mentality of, “I follow my own rules, and make my own set of values.” That’s much like the attitude of the Israelites in Old Testament times. They made up their own philosophies and rules, rather than seeking the standard of God’s ways. Today, Pastor Terry uses several examples to demonstrate the downfall of disregarding God’s standards, as a guide for our lives. By ignoring His ways, the outcome is that you’ll have all kinds of serious problems. 

Isaiah 25-26: The Lord Jehovah is Everlasting Strength Part 2

September 23, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

When we hear the word peace used in a statement, many different things pop into our minds. There’s a statement about, “I just want world peace.” We hear about having “peace of mind.” There are several other statements about “peace.” However, real peace is a fruit of the Spirit, and it’s a peace that is beyond anything we know how to express. Today, Pastor Terry explains how God has ordained peace for all of us. He wants us to walk in peace. Jesus said, “I came to give life more abundantly.”

Isaiah 25-26: The Lord Jehovah is Everlasting Strength Part 1

September 16, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Everyone wonders about the future and what lies ahead. What will happen tomorrow, next week, next month? What will tomorrow bring? Is there anything after death, or just a big emptiness? Is what we have and know today all there is? Man has come up with all sorts of answers to these questions. But, nothing he has created turns out to be a solution. Today, Pastor Terry explains to us what the Scriptures say about what tomorrow brings, and the fact that Jesus took away the sting of death.

Isaiah 23-24 Part 2

September 9, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Oftentimes as Christians, we regularly face giants and obstacles in life that feel huge and impossible to face alone. But take heart, because as believers in the Lord, we can stand in the power and authority of the omnipotent God! In today’s message, Pastor Terry will encourage you to remember that with God all things are possible! When things get difficult in your life all you must do is turn to the Father and He’ll welcome you with open arms! When we stand with God, who can stand against us?

Isaiah 23-24 Part 1

September 2, 2023 • Pastor Terry Reynolds

Have you ever done something or accomplished some big task and everyone wanted to celebrate you? It makes us feel good when people acknowledge our accomplishment, though our pride can make us feel too good, and can put God on the sidelines of our lives. In today’s message, Pastor Terry will share what the Bible says about this. Being humble in the eyes of God is the balance of pride. The Lord will honor and strengthen you when you give Him all the glory that He rightfully deserves!
