Blessed Is He Who Comes In The Name Of The Lord

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 29th, 2015

For this Palm Sunday message, Mike talks about what the prophecies in the Bible say regarding the coming of Jesus. Both His first coming and His second coming are talked about in the Old Testament.

The Jews of Jesus’ time had a choice, the choice to accept Him as Messiah or to reject Him. We are still faced with that same choice; no one can stay neutral about Jesus.




Romans 2:1-11

Posted in English, Bobby Ryan by immanuelfellowship on March 22nd, 2015

This week Bobby shares on the beginning of Romans chapter two. In this chapter Paul gives a warning to those who think they are above the sins mentioned in chapter one and therefore good enough. For the Jews in Paul’s audience, and those of us who have grown up in church, it is easy to think that God did not have to save us much because we weren’t that bad. This is only our pride speaking. Sin is like a poison that will kill us whether we have a lot of it, or only a little. All of us need God’s mercy to save us.

Romans 1:24-32

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 15th, 2015

This Sunday Mike talks about the down-ward spiral of sin described in the last part of Romans 1. Without an intervention from God, sin always grows in its power over us and leads us into more sin. In this difficult passage we can see the desperate situation sin leaves us in. We need to be aware of sin’s ability to trap us and take compassion on others by praying for those who have been caught in the deceitfulness of sin. This passage would be very devastating if it wasn’t for the Salvation of God Paul writes about in the rest of Romans.

Romans 1:18-23

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 8th, 2015

This Sunday we talk about the downward spiral outlined in Romans 1. Mike points out that before we are cleaned by Jesus’ blood, guilt serves a purpose. Guilt drives us to seek an answer to our sins, and God is the answer to our guilt. Because much of this first chapter in Romans talks about humanism, Mike also goes over the basic ideas behind humanism and how those ideas stand in direct conflict with God.




Romans 1:8-17

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 1st, 2015

This week Mike covers Romans 1:8-17 with a special focus on verses 16 and 17. The word gospel means "good news." It carries the message of the power of God to save people everywhere. There is no one in the world who doesn't need the gospel. We all know that we have done wrong things, and that we are guilty. During this message we also take a quick look into the Old Testament to see where God's prophets talked about our need for righteousness and God's plan to make us righteous. We will see God's plan to save us from our guilt over the coming weeks as we continue to study Romans.
