But as soon as the feet of the priests who were carrying the Ark touched the water at the river’s edge, 16 the water above that point began backing up a great distance away at a town called Adam, which is near Zarethan. And the water below that point flowed on to the Dead Sea until the riverbed was dry. Then all the people crossed over near the town of Jericho.

June 6, 2021 • Olu Brown

Pastor: Olu Brown Sermon: Flight: Takeoff Scripture: Isaiah 43:19 CEB Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness. What new thing is God doing in your life? Israelites transition from captivity to freedom What new places is God taking you to in your life? A foreign land to homeland Homeland is your destiny Are you positioned for takeoff? Plane (Life): Path to discovering the right airplane for you Runway (Path): Are you on the right or wrong runway? Check List (Plan): Are you configured for takeoff? Wheels Up (Airborne) Altitude and Speed Conclusion: Sunday, June 13 Landing
