A Cloud of Witnesses | Acts 1:9-14

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James [the son] of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas [the brother] of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” – Acts 1:9-14

Evil Is Present With Me

The born again child of God is, in a sense, a living contradiction. By that, we mean to say that there are two opposing natures at constant warfare within our hearts and minds at all times. In this message, Pastor Vaughn Winslett expounds on Romans chapter 7, a portion of scripture in which The Apostle Paul shares the struggle we all have with fleshly lusts.  Continue reading

Eden, from Ezekiel 47

And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. Ezekiel 47:12

Jacob

David’s Sin and God’s Grace

One of the most heartbreaking scenes in all of the Bible is when David sinned with Bathsheba. To someone who doesn’t understand God’s grace, such a moment might give reason to believe David had lost any hope of being in Heaven. However, sad and horrific as moments like these are, for the child of God, where sin abounds grace does much more abound. Join Pastor Vaughn Winslett for this message from 2 Samuel chapter 11.  Continue reading

Perfecting the Saints in Holiness

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:17-24

For the Perfecting of the Saints

Pastor Vaughn Winslett shares thoughts from Ephesians 4:12, that the ministry has been given for the edification of the saints of God.

“Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men…And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ…”
