Heaven Part 3

October 28, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

The center of attention doesn't describe a place to find an introvert. Now, an extrovert on the other hand may in fact love it. Thankfully, there's God who's at the center of everything...and RIGHTLY SO. Are you aware that there are those in heaven who never stops singing His praises and who He is? Faithful and good. Righteous. Friends, where have you directed your attention? Or your goals? Your failures? Your successes? Has it been to the only One who deserves it? God's waiting for YOU!

Heaven Part 2

October 27, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Do you see the beauty in all the crazy? The Creator made thunderstorms just as He made a crystal clear, calm lake. He has provided a way for you to enter into His living room, if you will, and soak in His presence. Are you a believer of this Creator? As Pastor Bill continues his message you learn more about the different crowns in heaven and who sits closest to the throne of God. There's hope in eternity even when it feels like all is lost. Nothing is spiraling downward, out of control. Not with God!

Heaven Part 1

October 26, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

To go to that one spot that you just know for sure what you're looking for is there, only to find that it's not is super disappointing! Right? This will be SO UNLIKE eternity. You WILL find God on the throne. He hasn't left. No one else can sit there. Not you. Not me. Only Him. God has requested that you be with Him...in heaven. Today Pastor Bill explores through Revelation this vision of what heaven will be like. Its description embodies so many contrary images, but when put all together, it's AMAZING!

Beam Me Up Part 3

October 25, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

I am ready to go! This will be such an exciting adventure together! Have these kinds of thoughts raced through your mind right before a big event that you can't wait to share with someone? Are you ready and waiting for Jesus to come back and get you? The Lord has promised that He's going to come back for His beloved, no matter where you are. This is the hope that the Rapture gives you as Pastor Bill points out today. Friends, have you trusted in His faithfulness and what the Bible says?

Beam Me Up Part 2

October 22, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Who out there are Star Trek fans? Wouldn't it be cool to just be beamed up wherever you needed to go? Talk about a time-saver! In today's message, Pastor Bill parallels that idea of being transported via a miraculous happening with the Rapture. Weddings are an occasion that's not easily forgotten. If you think about it, Jesus' promise of heaven is like a wedding. Dear ones, God himself, is getting the place ready where you will live WITH HIM forever if only you would take a step of faith to believe and trust Him!

Beam Me Up Part 1

October 21, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Do you do better knowing the plan? A plan helps you to know what to be prepared for and what to expect. Pastor Bill reminds us today of part of God's plan and where we fit in. The Bible tells us that He lived in skin like ours and then died for our sins. On top of all of that God went to heaven to make room for us, and in the meantime gave us His Holy Spirit. He will come back for all those that love Him. Don't doubt that His teleport machine is broken because He's all about people RELATIONSHIPS!

Doors of Revelation Part 2

October 20, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

The book of Revelation has so many prophecies of the end times that you can look forward to if you have a relationship with Him. There's hope for everyone who stays faithful to God until Jesus comes back, and you'll get a crown of glory before Him when that day comes. Pastor Bill wants you to be prepared today for that day. Does your life reflect God working in you regularly? Are you stepping out in faith every day to grow in your walk with Him? He wants to be close to you, if you just draw close to Him.

Doors to Revelation Part 1

October 19, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

God has some amazing plans for you to be a vessel that He works through if you let Him. Pastor Bill is going to show you today how doors can be open to you that you never thought possible because of your faithfulness to Him. God isn't looking for actions without a real relationship with Him. He wants you to love Him and to commit yourself to serving Him, so that your service to Him is out of love, and not obligation. Keep Him first and seek His voice, and you'll see Him start to move in you.

The Final Word Part 3

October 18, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Everything you do should reflect God working in your life. Your time, effort, and resources should all be put towards doing God's will for you and spreading His love to more people. Pastor Bill's going to show you today that no matter how much or little you have, God can open doors for you you never imagined possible if you're faithful to use what you have for Him. As you prove yourself faithful with little and keep His Word, you'll be trusted with more as you see Him moving more and more in your life.

The Final Word Part 2

October 15, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

No matter how much time you have on this earth, you need to make sure you're spending it right. God wants you to stay in love with Him and to show His love to everyone you meet. He promises a crown of glory for you if you remain faithful to Him, and as you'll see today with Pastor Bill, it's important to remember to spend time with God daily to keep growing in your relationship with Him. Your time can be an amazing testimony of how a Christian's life should look, no matter how long it is.

The Final Word Part 1

October 14, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

The first part of Revelation is the last instruction that Jesus ever gave to the churches on earth. What Pastor Bill wants you to take away from these last basic instructions is to follow where God leads you and to show His love to everyone you come into contact with. People should be able to tell you're a Christian just by your behavior and attitude towards others. If nobody knows where you stand spiritually, then you might need to reevaluate how you're reflecting Jesus in your life, and get your heart right with Him.

Time for a Checkup Part 2

October 13, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

God is going to judge your life someday to see how you chose to live it. He's going to see what you did for Him, and what you didn't do that you knew you should. Pastor Bill is going to show you how Jesus is going to give you a checkup today to see how healthy your spiritual life is. Are you on fire for Him, doing all you can to get stronger and healthier in your relationship with Him? It might be hard to give up old sins just like it's hard to start exercising or eating healthy, but it's worth every second.

Time for a Checkup Part 1

October 12, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Are you on fire for God? Do you feel a passion for Him that burns inside you that makes you want to seek Him out more? Or maybe you don't know Jesus at all but you know you need to. Today, Pastor Bill is going to show you that either is better than in the middle: lukewarm. You can call on God's name if you know you need Him more, and give Him worship and praise if you have that fire for Him. What's dangerous is when you're in the middle where it's comfortable and easy to forget about what God's done for you.

Tattoo By Jesus – A Mark of Honor Part 2

October 11, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

God's words in Revelation to the church of Philadelphia should be an encourgement for you to live like Jesus today. God promises reward for a life lived surrendered to Him, even to the point of getting a tattoo from Jesus someday. Pastor Bill wants you to be ready to meet Jesus when your race is over. Today, you'll see how the mark you get from Jesus is the proof of a life lived for Him. The Holy Spirit can fill you and help you know God's will for you, and all you have to do is ask for more of Him.

Tattoo By Jesus – A Mark of Honor Part 1

October 8, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

The God you serve is an awesome God. He's holy and The Sovereign God, but He's not so busy that He doesn't see everything you do. Pastor Bill is going to show you from Revelation today that someday when you're before Him - if you're faithful to Him like the church of Philadelphia - you'll get a branding from Him like a tattoo that will prove your faithfulness to Him. It depends on how you live your life here on earth, and God's marking on you is something you want to strive for.
