    "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." - Jesus speaking in Matthew 7:15
     
    Pastor Ray continues our yearlong verse-by-verse studies in the Sermon on the Mount with the 1st of 2 messages on the deadly danger of false prophets within the church. There may be more of them than you think

    Our culture today is tragically characterized by dishonor, division, and discourtesy. God wants to restore in the local church a "culture of honor" declaring and demonstrating a counter-cultural witness that provokes onlookers to the healthy and holy alternative of the Kingdom of God.
     
    Returning with Doris from the Intercessors for America annual board meeting in Washington DC, Larry Tomczak will bring fresh inspiration and biblical instruction on this critical theme today.

    "If you find it easy to be a Christian, you probably aren't one."
    - Matt Walsh
     
    Jesus pulled no punches when He described what the "normal Christian life" will look like. So why do we?

    "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. " - Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV)
     
    "If you find it easy to be a Christian, you probably aren't one." Matt Walsh 
    Jesus tells us that our eternity will be determined by one of 2 choices: the "narrow gate"  that leads to life or the "broad gate" that leads to destruction, and that "many" will be lost and "few" will be saved. We hope you can be with us for this week's compelling message that exposes the false gospel being preached today that offers an easy way to heaven and a comfortable path along the way. 
     
    This is one you will want your friends to hear!

    WHAT IS LOVE?
    W H A T  I S  L O V E ?

    French artist Marcel Duchamp said "There is something like an explosion in the meaning of certain words."
    The word love is certainly one of those words. Although it is often misunderstood and abused both in the church and in society at large, love is clearly defined in the bible and it is something that can be lived out every day.
     
    Children's pastor Kyle Rucker brings us the word this week with a very timely and powerful message!

    In Matthew 7:1, Jesus commands that we "Judge not". In John 7:24, He commands us to "Judge righteous judgment". Our Lord was not confused. There is no contradiction here, just much misunderstanding about the difference between judging righteous judgment and the terrible sin of judgmentalism. Every Christian needs to know the difference.
     
    Pastor Ray will be sharing the message, "Judgment on Judgmentalism" Saturday at 5 p.m. Celebration Church meets at Oak Hill Assembly of God, 5200 Franklin Pike, Nashville, TN 37220. We invite you to join us!

    THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT: Part 36 – Judge Not!
    P A R T  3 6 :

    J U D G E  N O T !

    Jesus said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged". And it is the most misunderstood command in the Bible. The world is quoting it to the church to shame us into silence. The church is quoting it to itself to make sure we are politically correct. What a mess.
     
    Please join us this week for Pastor Ray's compelling message about what Jesus meant, (and what He did not mean), when He gave us this amazing commandment. This message is so relevant to our modern times that it would be a good one to invite your friends and neighbors to come and hear!

    Understanding fasting as presented in scripture can either be a distasteful or delightful experience! Jesus spoke of a "bridal fast" that brings breakthrough and answers to long-standing prayers.

    C.S. Lewis once said, "We all agree that forgiveness is a wonderful idea, until we have to practice it."  
    In this week's message, "The Power of Forgiveness", Pastor Ray will show how forgiveness is more than a wonderful idea, it is a requirement of the normal Christian life.

    Asking God to "Give us this day our daily bread" has to be one of the most familiar prayer requests in human history. But so few who pray this prayer have a full understanding of what Jesus had in mind when He taught it!

    We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray presents some fresh prophetic insight on what it means to ask the Father for "Our Daily Bread".

    What was the subject of Jesus' first sermon?
    What does the Lord tell us to pray for first in all our prayers?
    The answer to all of the above is: The Kingdom of God!
    So why is it so many of God's people haven't got a clue? We hope you can join us this weekend for Pastor Ray's provocative message, "Thy Kingdom Come", and find out why this one thing changes every thing.

    Derek Prince, one of the greatest Bible teachers of the last generation, once pointed out that "It is the Fatherhood of God that makes Christianity different from all other religions". How right he was. Yet how often do we fail to see Jesus' emphasis on the importance of truly knowing God as Father?
     
    We hope you can be with us this week as Pastor Ray continues our studies in the Sermon on the Mount with an inspirational message on what it means to be a child of God the Father.

    While almost everyone can recite the "Lord's Prayer" word for word, very few realize that the first two words of this famous prayer are the key to unlocking the power of the whole thing. 
     
    We hope you can join us this week for a message from Pastor Ray that will revolutionize your prayer life and enrich your relationship with God forever. Come find out what you might have been missing!
