The People of God: A Fragrance of Christ

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on November 15th, 2020

God wants us to be a fragrance of Christ (II Corinthians 2:14-15). That happens as we demonstrate the love of Christ to a dark and suffering world. However, it is possible that through our lack our love we become a noisy gong or clanging cymbal. We are annoying, obnoxious, and repulsive to the world. God is wanting to purge all hypocrisy from us that we may indeed be that fragrant aroma.

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on November 12th, 2020

Psalm 2 is a powerful psalm that has so much that speaks to us today. It begins by asking why are all the nations and peoples in such a rage. That’s a question many of us are asking today. This psalm is actually quoted two times in the New Testament, once in the book of Revelation, and in Acts 4. Both times have significance for us in today’s world.

Doulos School of Ministry -Called to be Shepherds (part 1)

Posted in DefaultTag, Mike Phillips, Bible Class by immanuelfellowship on October 30th, 2020
We begin this series by looking at Ezekiel 34 when God gives a severe warning to those who have been called to be shepherds yet are not caring for the flock, not going after the scattered, not healing the hurting. Rather they are feeding themselves! The promise, however, is that God will raise up a perfect and good Shepherd one day....that is Jesus Christ.
