If There was No God
December 6, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"If There was no God" -In Psalm 14, David wrote, "A fool has said in his heart there is no God." Can we begin to imagine what life would be like on earth if God didn't exist? Not only can we know what life would be like, scripture is very clear what happens when people forget God. We are living in a time in human history that people are living like there is no God. We are witnessing the decline of people's interest to learn about God, His will for their lives, and the truth. However, God will always have a remnant of people who will live for Him no matter the cost. We must shine brighter for Jesus than we ever have before.
The Truth about Lies
December 3, 2023 • pastor asa dockey
"The Truth about Lies" -Jesus teaches in John 10 : 10 that the thief comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy. Have you ever witnessed Satan in the act of a crime? There's a scriptural reason why we don't see Satan committing crimes and it's because he is a spirit being. However, Satan works through lies to wreak havoc on the earth and in people's lives. It's our responsibility as Christians to guard our hearts so that the thief can't work through us to do wrong and it cost us dearly.
Food for Thought
November 30, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Food for Thought" -Satan has found a way to trip humans up that can make us fail in our endeavors. If we repeatedly fail, he stands a better chance of causing us to give up and quit trying. Satan is a thief and he wants to steal every moment of every day that we allow him. Therefore, as Christians, we need to be able to recognize when it is self that is speaking to us or God. God has great plans for our lives to prosper and not harm us. He wants to give us a hope and future through Christ. It's up to us to decide if we want to succeed or fail.
There are Two Offers on the Table
November 26, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"There are Two Offers on the Table" -There is a spiritual war taking place over your soul. This war is between you and your desires (lusts). Even though we are in a war with Satan over our soul, Jesus has already won that war and His victory is forever secure. The war that we are engaged in now has to do with who will win our soul, Jesus or Satan. We war with our own desires for pleasure, but if we would submit our hearts to God, He would give us the desires of our hearts. What are you building your life upon, the Rock or sand, the truth, or your desires?
Created Differently to be Different
November 19, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Created Differently to be Different" -God did more than create us, He also gave mankind dominion. However, through their sin, Adam and Eve gave their dominion over to Satan when they chose to believe his lies instead of heeding God's warning. Therefore, God set out to establish a different race of people in the earth which came into existence through the faith of Abraham, another man. That covenant failed to produce what God intended when He made it with Abraham because of the unbelief of the Jews. Consequently, God entered a new covenant with Himself. God became flesh and through Him, God has been able to create a new race of people that will overcome the Devil and the world. Christians aren't just human beings, we are also spiritual beings.
Walking in Peace and Authority
November 5, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Walking in Peace and Authority" -Do not be mistaken, Satan works through the flesh nature of people. However, our battle isn't with people, but with demonic forces. If Satan can get us to fall for his schemes, we will forfeit our peace and authority. There are great insights in this message for all believers.
Faith Unlocks the Door to Revelation
November 1, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Faith Unlocks the Door to Revelation" -The world doesn't seek proof to convince them that they are correct in the things that they believe. However, when an unbeliever hears the truth about Jesus being the Son of God, they won't receive it as truth until it can be proven to them. Faith is what opens the door to revelation so that anyone can recognize and know the truth that is in Jesus Christ. This message from God is packed with fresh revelation and has the power to transform lives.
A Controlled Burn
October 30, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"A Controlled Burn" -It's amazing to read the story where Moses saw a bush that was engulfed in flames, but it wasn't destroyed. Throughout the Old Testament, God appeared to His people as fire. The writer of Hebrews declares that our God is a consuming fire. How is it that God's fire can be inside of His children and we not be consumed? The fire of God is given to preserve us, not destroy us.
Giving Yourself a Pass
October 26, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Giving Yourself a Pass" -Whenever we're supposed to do something, but we don't really want to do it, we may put it off until later. Being a Christian has much to do with being self-discipline. Even though Christians have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, the Lord doesn't stand over us to assure that we do everything that we're told. Unfortunately, we can give into complacency and give ourselves passes to the point that we miss so much that the Lord has in store for us. It is time for all Christians to be self-disciplined and hold ourselves responsible to God so that we avoid the consequences of sin.
Walk in the Light of Truth
October 22, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Walk in the Light of Truth" -If the current events occurring globally are causing you to be afraid, God has this word for you. The Lord tells His prophets the things that He is going to fulfill in the earth before He does them. God will never allow His faithful children to be caught off guard or unprepared for sudden events. However, we can allow the Devil to capture our attention and cause us to be caught off guard if we're not diligent in our faith walk. Learn how to be prepared for the unexpected.
Resurrected by the Word
October 19, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Resurrected by the Word" -If a person doesn't respond to the Word of God by faith, they won't receive eternal life. They may be alive physically but they are dead spiritually. Everyone who has responded in faith to the truth that Jesus is the Son of God, God has raised them from the dead. Even though God has given us life, we are commanded to live this new life by faith and we do this by obeying His Word and the Holy Spirit. Those who live by faith will have the ability to see and to hear spiritually. Faith in Jesus gives us access into the realm of the Spirit.
Drawing the Wrong Conclusions about Jesus
October 15, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Drawing the Wrong Conclusions about Jesus" -John writes that Jesus came to His own people and they did not receive Him. Even though Jesus taught like no other teacher and performed countless miracles in their midst, the Jews refused to believe He was God's Son. Repeatedly, the Jews came to the wrong conclusions about Jesus. Until Jesus is revealed to believers, we won't always understand His sayings. Even though God is our heavenly Father, we don't understand all of His ways. However, once the Holy Spirit reveals the spiritual truth to believers, we will know our God and be strong in our walk of faith.
Understanding Who We are in Christ
October 13, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Understanding Who We are in Christ" -This message from the Lord will offer clarity and insights from His Word to help Christians know who we truly are. Whenever the truth of any spiritual subject hasn't been fully revealed to Christians, this can give the enemy an opportunity to cause teachers to teach their beliefs instead of the truth. Once the truth is fully revealed, we can know the truth as truth and become the spiritual sons and daughters of God that He intended us to be all along.
How to Take Possession of the Promises
October 8, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"How to Take Possession of the Promises" -Does it seem that your faith is only used to fight the enemy during a trial? If so, this is a message for you from the Lord. The Lord didn't give us faith so that we could always be on the defensive. In fact, John teaches in his epistle that it is our faith in Jesus that has given us the victory over the world. We must not view ourselves as beneath. We are to see ourselves as above only.
Empower Yourself with the Truth
October 5, 2023 • Pastor Asa Dockery
"Empower Yourself with the Truth" -If you are a Christian, you don't have to fall prey to false prophets or false teachers. God has given the Word of God for all His children to be able to read, comprehend, and come to the knowledge of the truth for themselves. People inadvertently allow Satan to control them when they don't know the truth. He controls us through fear tactics. It is for this reason that Christians should learn from God's Word what their spiritual identity is and walk in it. Empower yourself by getting in the Word of God and hiding it in your heart.
