“Occupy 2018” April 20-22, 2018 Registration

Join us in Canton to hear updates from Joe and Doug Hagmann, Jon Robberson, LA Marzulli, Russ Dizdar,  Pastor Paul Begley, Pastor Mike Spaulding, Mark Trump, Bill Federer and Coach Dave.

Many events provide meaningful data on world events and biblical implications, but most of the time, event attendees leave all pumped up but find themselves all alone when they return home and are not able to further their personal growth with like-minded people.  Occupy 2018 is an event  that will encourage attendees to stay plugged into various processes (prayer groups, online training, podcasts, etc) to continue their walk in Christ.

The goal of the Occupy Til I Come Conference is to inform, guide, and connect like minded Remnant members and prepare them for the current and future spiritual battles ahead as time draws nearer to Christ’s return. (Luke 19:13)

What You Can Expect:

The Conference speaker topics will focus on standing and holding ground as Christians wherever you are.

Registrants will learn the calls to action to find training, websites, and material resources that will strengthen attendees in their personal walk and growth in truth.

The Conference Team will share with attendees tools to stay connected, access to weekly events (prayer teams, bible groups, online fellowship, podcasts, video streaming and physical fellowship)

Our aim is to connect attendees to multiple opportunities to take the fight to the enemy in areas all across the country.

Matthew 6:25-34 – Don’t Live Your Life Under The Tyranny Of The What If’s

In our previous study we learned about the deadly disease of affluenza or materialism.  The reason that this is so deadly for the Christian is because it results in an unbiblical focus on the acquisition of things.

Materialism causes people to lose their ability to achieve contentment and leads instead to compromise and coveting.

Jesus tells us in verses 19-24 of chapter 6 to beware of the trap of thinking that possessions satisfy the soul because not only do they not satisfy but they cannot satisfy.  We are not designed by God to be satisfied by material possessions.

Notice that verse 24 serves as Jesus’ summary of the result of disregarding this spiritual truth – you will be mastered by things.

I want to consider two questions and their answers this morning in light of what Jesus says –

  • What happens when we disobey this warning?
  • What happens when we obey it?

Matthew 6:1-18 – What Constitutes Godly Righteousness?

Most of you know this but it bears remembering that chapter and verse designations are man-made.  They were placed throughout the text of the Bible as a means to navigate through the Bible.  In many cases they do make a clean break in the thoughts of the authors.  In the Sermon on the Mount however, this is not the case.

Chapter 6 continues the explanation of Jesus on what constitutes true righteousness.  He has contrasted true righteousness from false righteousness by using the religious leaders of His day.

Jesus makes the point in this chapter that what people do is a direct result of the righteousness they possess – whether their own, or the righteousness God gives us through faith in Jesus Christ.

That was certainly the intent behind what He said in 5:17-20.  Up till that point Jesus had taught the people how godly righteousness was first of all apprehended and secondly how it was manifested.  In that passage verse 20 is a pivotal verse in helping us understand exactly what Jesus was saying.

The Church and Its Mission Today – Part 2

broken down pulpit

We often hear that “revival starts with the people of God.” That statement is true but often masks what must precede revival. Before God will bring revival in and upon His people, Christians must repent, confess, and turn from their evil ways. In other words, revival is necessary for a people that have wandered off the narrow path and have come under judgment.

The idea of revival in America has a long and storied history. From traveling evangelists to week long “tent meetings,” revival was a yearly occurrence in the lives of Christians throughout the 1940’s through 1970’s. Somewhere in the process of holding annual revival meetings, Christians made them more about evangelism than about personal repentance. This means that Christians did not do much self-reflection but instead focused on inviting friends, co-workers, and family members that they believed needed to hear the gospel.

Over the years the effectiveness of this type of outreach has waned dramatically. The need for revival in and upon the body of Christ has never been clearer though. A problem is that the modern version of Christianity has been so distorted by false teaching, so misconstrued by a heretical breed of motivational charlatans, by the ever growing cadre of name-it-claim-it, blab-it-grab-it, mantra chattering, demon oppressed celebrity “pastors,” that the body of Christ is in the miry swamplands of self-absorbed materialism, self-inflicted narcissism, and demon produced doctrines of flesh and misdirection. Sadly they do not even realize their precarious estate.
