Bridging the Gap
True Treasure and Reward - Part 1
June 28, 2019 • June 28, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
In this section of scripture, Jesus addresses topics ranging from marriage to the dangers of religious traditions. And He has some very challenging words for a certain young man who was very wealthy and wanted to know how he could gain access to heaven. That’s where we begin today - Matthew nineteen, verse sixteen and the rich young ruler.
Covenant Relationships - Part 2
June 27, 2019 • June 27, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Lloyd has titled this message “Covenant Relationships”, so we are talking about those relationships that come with a promise. Marriage certainly comes to mind as one of those relationships that have a covenant agreement of faithfulness, but there are others as well. How about our relationship with God? He supplies the love and power and grace to set us up for eternity. What do we bring to that relationship?
Covenant Relationships - Part 1
June 26, 2019 • June 26, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Today our teacher, Pastor Lloyd Pulley will address the subject of relationships, by taking us to Matthew chapter nineteen. This section of scripture is traditionally used to teach on the subject of divorce, and Pastor Lloyd will indeed speak on that topic, but the actual underlying theme here is personal relationships of all kinds. God designed marriage as a model of our relationship with Christ, but we have managed to mess that whole thing up, and the foundation of marriage is much like the foundation of a lot of our relationships - they are on the endangered list.
Forgiveness and the DIsciple - Part 2
June 25, 2019 • June 25, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Matthew was a former tax collector when he wrote this narrative of the life of Jesus, and he must have had plenty of disagreements with other people during his tax collecting days. How should we deal with the disagreeable among us, the “difficult people”? Jesus has some important words for us on this subject - and the key word is forgiveness.
Forgiveness and the DIsciple - Part 1
June 24, 2019 • June 24, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Today on Bridging the Gap, Pastor Lloyd Pulley begins a study in Matthew eighteen, verses ten through twenty five. Jesus addresses the topic of disagreement, and the most important ingredient in getting through them - forgiveness. The story is familiar to most Christians - a man who owed his employer a lot of money - and had no way of paying it back.
Humility and the Disciple - Part 2
June 21, 2019 • June 21, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Pastor Lloyd is currently teaching a series from the book of Matthew and today’s message is from the eighteenth chapter. Here, the disciples were in need of a bit of rebuke because their pride and desire to be seen at great in the eyes of men was beginning to cause a problem among them.
Humility and the Disciple - Part 1
June 20, 2019 • June 20, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Today we resume our series in the gospel of Matthew. And in chapter eighteen, Jesus is asked by His disciples “who is the greatest in the Kingdom?” Humility was something these guys needed a good dose of, obviously. Jesus knew just what to say. We will explore His answer today, in Matthew eighteen.
World History in a Dream Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Dream - Part 2
June 19, 2019 • June 19, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
The Bible’s predictions have a 100% success rate in accuracy. The book of Daniel is a great example of this and that’s where our focus lies on today’s edition of Bridging the Gap. Pastor Lloyd takes us to Daniel two, and relates this intriguing story to what’s going on around us in the year 2019.
World History in a Dream Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Dream - Part 1
June 18, 2019 • June 18, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
On this edition of Bridging the Gap, Pastor Lloyd takes us to Daniel chapter two, as a part of his prophecy series. There are some today that seek meaning in their dreams, wondering if it will come true or if there is some hidden message they are to receive from it. Others wonder if the dream was a result of something bad they ate the night before. The dream we’re about to look at does have meaning and purpose, especially as it relates to events.
The Rapture of the Church - Part 2
June 17, 2019 • June 17, 2019 • Pastor Lloyd Pulley
Today Pastor Lloyd brings us the conclusion of a message on what God’s word actually says about the rapture - that moment when Christians will be caught up in the air to meet the Lord. Remember, Lloyd has mention this many times - a disagreement about the timing of the rapture is a minor thing. As long as we are all solidly behind salvation through faith alone, and the other core precepts of our faith, then it’s “majoring on the minors” to have a big kerfuffle about the rapture.
