Rahab and the Fall of Jericho // Jared Thurmon

Jericho was a city devoted to the most extravagant idolatry and selfishness. They worshipped the demon goddess of the moon - Ashtoreth. She was the goddess of fertility, sexuality and war. But in the city there was a prostitute who as a child had heard of the plagues in Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea. Now it was her turn to exercise faith. But does God bless deception? What really caused the walls of the city to fall down? There is more going on behind the scenes in this story than we may have realized.

Is Perception Reality? The Story of David and Goliath // Jared Thurmon

Is Perception Reality? We can learn a lot from the story of David and Goliath. She was fired from her first job at a news station and told she was “unfit for television,” But - Oprah Winfrey didn’t give up. "I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan - didn’t give up. “Why would I feel like a failure? And why would I ever give up? I now know definitely over 9,000 ways an electric lightbulb will not work. Success is almost in my grasp.” - Thomas Edison didn’t give up. Is perception reality? If we looked at each of these people at various stages in life, we would likely call them failures. This is the story of a shepherd boy who slayed Lions, and Giants and Bears. We learn the valuable lesson that perception is not always reality.

Harlot or Hero - 7

Daniel and John wrote in the books of Daniel and the Revelation that one day in the future the church would become the greatest enemy of...the church?

Jesus - The Fallen Angel? - 6

For 4000 years, the angels, the unfallen worlds, and mankind had waited. Mothers and fathers had relayed the story to their children. One day the Messiah would come and be the sacrifice to save man from sin and selfishness. The tipping point in the plan of salvation had finally come.

This was the moment like that of Cortez and his men in 1519 when the Spanish Fleet landed on the shores of the new world. Cortez turns to them and says “BURN THE SHIPS” There is no going back now. 

In order to elevate fallen man, Christ must reach him where he was and become the son of man. 

All heaven was at risk!!!

Satan meets Christ in the desert and tells Him that one of the exalted angels had been exiled to the earth, that Jesus appearance indicated that, instead of His being the king of heaven,  He clearly was the fallen angel…
