We continue in our series, Priority Mail with an exploration through the letter to the church in Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13). In this letter, Jesus had not a single hard word for this church. What can we learn from it so that we, as a church, would be in a position to hear a commendation from Jesus like this?
On Mother's Day, 2018, Pastor Bryan preached a special Mother's Day message (in addition to the sermon in our series). Mother's day is hard for many women, and it's difficult for pastors. This difficulty should remind us how important this day should be about celebrating what God is doing in and through women, mother's or not.
Is there punishment in heaven? Do dogs go to heaven? Is the KJV the best translation of the Bible? Why does Pastor Bryan have so many books? We looked at these and many other questions on this episode of Redeeming Life: LIVE.
Pastor Bryan Catherman opened to Revelation 3:1-6 and preached a hard-hitting message. This is the letter to the church in Sardis and it's our 5th sermon in our series through the seven letters in the book of Revelation. Listen in below and then do something about what you hear from God's Word.
This morning, Pastor Bryan Catherman opened God's Word to Revelation 2:18-29 in order to explore the letter to the church in Thyatira. In this letter, Jesus says the church was doing really well in some important areas but they had something very wrong. Listen to the sermon on the player below or download it and play it on any other devise of your preference.
Join Redeeming Life Church as Pastor Bryan looks at the church in Pergamum, living where Satan dwells, and the dangerous effects of compromise.
Pastor Derek and Josiah joined Pastor Bryan for Redeeming Life: LIVE. We tried a new time and a new format (meaning we only dealt with questions and it was Saturday morning). Participants joined in during the live feed via Facebook and YouTube, but you can still watch the recording and even continue sending in your questions for future LIVE sessions.
The church in Pergamum lived in the shadow of false temples. And all of them were indeed false because Jesus had atoned for sin and made the physical stone-and-mortar temple obsolete. Pergamum had lots of false temples intruding into the skyline. Jesus called this place Satan's dwelling and the place of his throne.
The Christian church there was holding on. They were faithful. But in the difficulties where they lived, some of them had compromised.
Our sermon this week is from Revelation 2:12-17. I want to encourage you to read it, think about it, pray through it, and come ready to interact with God some more this Sunday.
For the Kingdom!
This morning, Pastor Bryan Catherman opened to Revelation 2:8-11 and preached a bold message from this letter to the church in Smyrna. We are we are encouraged to live faithfully for Jesus, even unto death.
We're still experimenting with various ways to use technology to connect (on some level) to discuss God's Word, theology, cultural issues, and more. This week we simultaneously streamed in YouTube and Facebook using two separate systems. We've got work to do with both, but we're getting there. (We need to set up controlled shots on the Mevo so the auto editor/producer doesn't think a shot of Pastor Bryan's hands or stomach might be interesting.)
This week on Redeeming Life: LIVE Pastor Bryan and Pastor Derek addressed questions in Revelation. Who are the angels of the churches? What's up with that? How do we keep what's in the book of Revelation and what does that really mean? We also took questions that lead us to a discussion about the lostness of Utah, why we don't believe members of the LDS church are within the definition of biblical Christianity, how we should use biblical terminology, and even a brief discussion on the value of having a garden.
Our next Redeeming Life: LIVE session will be Saturday, April 21st at 8am MST. Mark your calendars. If you have questions you'd like discussed, text them to (385) 368-6665 or sent them to Pastor Bryan.
