For Such a Time as This // Jared Thurmon

The story of Queen Esther may have more to teach us than we realize. In this message, we discover why Vashti's story and background may hold the key to fully unlock the story of Esther. It was Martin Luther King who said "There comes a time when silence is betrayal." Both Esther and Vashti knew this personally. How do you know when your time has come to speak out? And once you know, what do you say?

The 2-Minute Warning - 9

The present is a time of overwhelming interest to all living. Thinking men and women of all classes, have their attention fixed upon the events taking place about us and they recognize that something great and decisive is about to take place—that the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis. In the last part of our 9 part series, we explore what lies between today and paradise restored. What events could lead America to repudiate the Constitution? What would happen if millions of visitors from another world showed up to our planet? Many talk of the coming Messiah - but what about the coming of Lucifer?

America The Beautiful? - 8

As the old world was falling, a new world was rising. On the shores of this new land, two secrets of her power would slowly grow up. Did God have a hand in the founding of America? If so, have we fulfilled that divine destiny or have our enemies from the dark come to put out the light?

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? Today there is a growing distinction between true and false religion. In this episode, we look at two women representing two different belief systems. Without knowing the details you might not be able to tell the difference. One dressed in white, faithful, full of love and kindness - our Hero. The other, dressed in Red and Purple, full of fraud, selfishness and corruption - the Harlot.

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…

Angels and Demons - 5

Israel enters the promised land and eventually reaches their greatness in King Solomon. But soon he begins building shrines to the heathen gods all around Jerusalem. Who were these gods? None other than the fallen angels of heaven. In this episode, we discuss the role of angels and demons in the war of good and evil and why prayer is one of the rules of engagement that allows God to enter into the affairs of mankind.

Be Fruitful - 4

What are the two principles contending for supremacy in the war of good vs. evil? Moses is poised to be king of the world, the sun god, Pharaoh of Egypt, yet he decides to cast his lot with the people of God rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. God rewards him by showing him the final details of how the war of good and evil would end and how sin and selfishness would forever be silenced.

Forbidden Fruit - 2

Satan stood in amazement at his new condition. His happiness was gone. He looked upon the angels who, with him, were once so happy, but who had been expelled from heaven.... Now all was different . Joy was replaced with bickering and arguments. Where was he? Was it not all a horrible dream? Was he shut out of Heaven?

Join us as we look at part 2 in our story. Satan loses all of heaven, will he lead Adam and Eve to join his rebellion?
