This time of year, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. It’s common to see Christmas lights and trees. It’s common to see living nativities, but was Jesus really born on Christmas Day? While we can’t really know exactly when Jesus was born, the Bible does give clues that can help us determine when Jesus was …

Where do the candidates in your area stand on the sanctity of human life? In the past, you had to guess. You didn’t really know all the way. In fact, many pro-life and pro-family organizations in their voter guides merely asked: “do you oppose abortion except in the cases of rape, incest, and life of …
This Memorial Day weekend, many will head to the beaches, join together with family and friends, or simply relaxing and enjoying their three day weekend, but this weekend has a purpose bigger than the beach, bigger than barbeques, bigger than three day weekends, and bigger than parties and get-togethers. This weekend is set aside to remember those who have sacrificed much, especially those who have given all, even their very lives, so that you and I and generations before and after us can enjoy the freedom they enjoy. Moreover, the blood freely given by our military forces has not only bought and paid for our freedom in America but also the freedom and security of many other countries and peoples across the world. This Memorial Day weekend, make sure that you take time to remember those who have given their lives so that you might enjoy freedom.
This weekend, there are several events memorializing those who have laid down their lives to secure the rights we enjoy. One event that I would highly encourage you to attend is
Today is the National Day of Prayer. Our nation has a long heritage of turning back to God in a time of need. These times of need are usually precipitated by compromise and sin which leads to the judgment of God. Those times of judgment often bring us back to God, and coming back to God in turn brings His blessings.
If there were ever a time that America needs to turn back to God, it is now! If there were ever a time when the church of Jesus Christ needs to turn back to God, it is now! On May the 3rd, join us in participating in the National Day of Prayer, and join us in collecting petitions for the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment. “We, the people” of the state of Florida must turn back to the covenant we made with Almighty God…
You’ve probably seen the bumper sticker that reads: 2012: The end of an error. It’s probably on the car of a Republican who wants to see the end of the Obama administration.
2012 is a new year, and with a new year, we look for change. We look for the new year to be better than the previous year.
Certainly, we have been in some tough economic times in this country. These times have led many to ask, “How’s that hope and change working for you?” Certainly for a lot of people, not as well as they had hoped.
At this time of year, we remember the Christ child. Conceived by an unwed young girl and born in a lowly manger, the circumstances of his conception and birth could easily be described a crisis pregnancy, yet Jesus was and is the greatest gift of all.
Every child is a gift from God, regardless the circumstances surround her conception and birth. While not every child is planned or comes under perfect circumstances, every child is a blessing, for every child bears God’s image reminding us of how valuable we are to Him! How His heart must break when we despise His gift and seek abortion to kill the precious gift of God in the womb.
Our founding fathers recognized that “all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights among which are life
Sermon, Memorial Day, Is the Lord For Us or For Our Adversaries? Pastor Bryan Longworth, Covenant Tabernacle
When the Lord appeared to Joshua near Jericho, Joshua asked, ‘Are You for us or for our adversaries?’ So He said, ‘No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.’ This is a curious answer. One would think that the Lord would take sides in this battle, especially since Israel was His chosen people. Yes the answer was, No, but I am here. Joshua’s question really was misdirected. The question should not have been whether God was on Israels side but rather was Israel on God’s side, for it is only when a nation is on God’s side that God will bless and defend and fight for that nation.
Moreover, when a nation departs from His commandments and violates His precepts
Sermon, How Should We React to Unrest in the Middle East, End Times, Covenant Tabernacle, Pastor Bryan Longworth
When we see turmoil and revolution in the Middle East, what should we think? Should we rejoice with those who have struggled for so long under a merciless dictator? Should We Rejoice the These Nations Will Experience Freedom? Is is possible or even more likely the end result will be worse than the first? Isn’t it just as likely that the country will be taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood or another radical Islamic Fundamentalist organization that wants to destroy America and Israel and will kill its own people to accomplish that goal? Should we see this as a clear sign that we are end the end times? Should We Rejoice for Our Redemption Draws Neigh? Will Jesus soon rapture his church? What signs did Jesus say would indicate the beginning of the end times? What does the Bible have to say about these questions? Listen to my Sermon entitled How Should We React to Unrest in the Middle East where I tackle these questions from a Biblical perspective.
