What Happens at the End? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever played the “Would you rather...” game? It’s where you’re given two less than appealing situations and pick which you’d rather experience. For example, would you rather walk over hot coals or stand on a fire ant mound for 10 minutes? Usually neither option sounds inviting.

In Daniel 11 we learn about some ugly end of time details that ultimately describe genocide against Christians. In this message Pete Briscoe teaches about this extraordinary and terrifying future event and why you can be confident about the glorious outcome for believers who persevere.

Scripture: Daniel 11:36 - 12:4

This Is Our Future

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

There’s often debate about whether to read Scripture as literal or symbolic. In Daniel 11, we don’t have to debate because all that was predicted 367 years before it happened in the Middle East and northern Africa came true with amazing accuracy. But it doesn’t end there. The chapter continues to predict events that have yet to take place—horrific events against Christians that will usher in a terrible season of persecution. This is our future, and we can bank on it happening just as it’s described.

In this message Pete Briscoe shares troubling news of events yet to happen but also shows us why we can put our fears aside—even when clouds of persecution overshadow Christians throughout the world.

Scripture: Daniel 11:1 - 11:35

God Will Keep His Promise

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever been promised something that seemed too good to be true? As we struggle through trials we can lose sight of God’s future promise that someday believers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

In this message Pete Briscoe helps us understand what we’ve been invited to when we say “yes” to Jesus. Being a child of God doesn’t guarantee us a ride on “easy street,” but we have reason to be encouraged that the tough ride will be well worth it in the end.

Scripture: Daniel 8

Enduring Persecution

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Do you wonder why persecution against Christians seems to be growing? Do you wonder if the antichrist might be in the world right now?

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7:15-28 where we get a glimpse of what eternity will be like and why God’s promise that His people will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven should give us strength to endure persecution.

Scripture: Daniel 7:15 - 7:28

Hanging in There

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

As Christians, we have God’s Word to tell us how the game of life ends. Yet, even though we cling to His truth, we can find ourselves preoccupied with the enemy’s short-term victories and temporary advances in the world.

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7 to help us through the struggle of trying to understand God’s eternal plan and how to persevere until He decides to end the game of life.

Scripture: Daniel 7:1 - 7:14

Setting Out to Shake the World

Jill Briscoe

Series: Shaking Up Your World

Paul had a heart as big as the world, a vision as high as the sky, and a life that marches down the stairway of time into our little lives—enlarging them forever. He was a mover and a shaker—a “world shaker.” From this point on in the narrative, Paul would be in prison and bondage until the end of his course on earth.

When Jesus laid aside His glory at the first Advent, He relinquished omniscience. So He could not tell the disciples when He would return. He didn’t know! But He knew He would return. He knew the “would” but not the “when.” We are in an identical situation.

How Can I Love God?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

Is there a “good” thing distracting you from loving Jesus? It can be tempting to dedicate yourself to busyness and miss one of the most important things Jesus asks of you—love. Good things are absolutely worthless without love.

In this message, Jill Briscoe studies the story of Martha and Mary to uncover the choice that’s yours to make in order to love Jesus with all your heart, soul, and strength.

Scripture: Luke 10:38 - 10:42

How Can I Like Myself Without Being Proud?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

Is there a difference between a healthy self-image and pride? We read in 1 Corinthians 8:1 that while knowledge “puffs up,” love “builds up.”

How do you put your gifts and God-given potential to use and remain humble in the process? How can you be confident and assured in God’s leading and not entertain a high view of yourself?

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from Scripture to show you how to balance this so you’re free to forget yourself and focus instead on other people and the work God has for you.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13

The Meaning of Love, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Meaning of Love

We read in I Corinthians 13 a clear and complete description of love. This is the type of love our world is craving. The problem is we are so confused on the subject of love, which of course, is at the root of any kind of relationship, and particularly, any kind of friendship. We need to define the word, identify the various types, explore the source, and understand the meaning of love.

How Can I Stop Wanting What Others Have? Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

Envy is something many of us struggle with, especially in today’s culture. The problem is that all too soon envy of what someone owns or has accomplished morphs into jealousy where we don’t want them to have or enjoy what they have! How do we stop this comparative and unhealthy thinking that’s harmful to us and prevents us from loving people in a pure and Godly manner?

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives practical insight to help free us from the burden of want and instead rejoice in the triumphs of others.

How Can I Be More Patient?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

We’re often tempted to live our lives out of our emotions where ugly things like frustration, anger, jealousy, and impatience rise to the surface. But love is patient. Love wins over difficult people. Love wins over unlovable people. But it’s never something we can do in our own strength.

In this message, Jill Briscoe explores patience as an outpouring of love and why allowing God to teach us long-suffering will transform the gift of love we give to others into a kindness the world seldom sees.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13

Merging Two Kingdoms, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Extraordinary Marriage

If you look behind the conflicts, arguments, and unresolved disputes in your marriage you’ll likely find the root problem is that you and your spouse are fighting for control. The human quest for control is nothing new—it’s been plaguing relationships since the beginning of time. And the tension that results from guarding your turf prevents your marriage from flourishing.

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about how our need for control is really just a symptom of something deeper. He discusses what it takes to erase the boundaries of our individual kingdoms in order to enjoy the oneness that God intended for our marriages.

Scripture: Matthew 18 , Matthew 20

When Is It Time to See a Counselor? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Modern Marriage

There’s nothing natural about sitting in a room with someone you hardly know and being asked probing questions about your most personal feelings, fears, and struggles. And if that’s not enough to deter you, there’s also a negative stigma attached to people who seek counseling.

So, why even bother? After all, Christians seek counsel from God and each other—isn’t that enough?

It might not be if you’re feeling stuck in life—lost in a dying marriage or relationship, held hostage from a traumatic past event, or self-medicating to relieve your pain.

Sometimes we need help to admit that we need help.

In this message, Pete Briscoe will show you biblically the appropriateness and importance of seeking counsel, so that nothing holds you back from fully experiencing Life in Christ.

Is There Equality in Marriage? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Modern Marriage

Ephesians 5:22 is the often quoted verse that tells wives to submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord. Unsurprisingly, this verse has pricked the nerves of both women and men as they battle to apply this verse in their marriages.

Is it possible that for far too long, the church has been inaccurately teaching the true meaning of this verse? What are the possible translations of the Greek word “submit” that could shine a brighter light on the picture Paul was attempting to paint?

Even if you’ve heard previous teaching on this verse, join Pete Briscoe as he opens God’s Word and exposes the limited view many hold regarding this text. He’ll help you gain a deeper and more profound understanding of how this verse in the proper context will enrich your marriage and your relationship with God.

Is It OK to Live Together?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Modern Marriage

Couples living together without the benefit of marriage have become an accepted social norm—and it’s also occurring within the Christian community. In fact, there’s a good chance that the couple of the last wedding you attended lived together before they got married.

Is sharing living space and sexual intimacy without being married a good idea? Even if you’re not grappling with this question, you likely know of someone who is—or at least they should be!

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares what the Bible teaches on this topic and shows you what couples might unwittingly sacrifice when they decide to live together before marriage.

As Jill Briscoe explains, you cannot know the will of God until you find God and get to know Him personally—or at least slow down long enough for Him to find you!

Walking in Truth

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Living the Life

In its early days, the Christian church was very conscious of the struggle for the souls of men and women between “the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” In our modern culture, we see dramatically changing attitudes toward truth. But we must recognize that there is such a thing as truth, and there is such a thing as error.

Ordinary Men, Extraordinary God

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

When you think of Jesus’ disciples, what do you picture? Do you picture superheroes or great, powerful men? The truth is that the disciples were just ordinary, everyday men! This group, hand-picked by Jesus, included no scholars, religious leaders, or especially talented men. We have examples of when they lacked faith, humility, spiritual understanding, and power. Yet despite their ordinariness, these men became testimonies of God’s glory when He worked in and through them. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe introduces us to this ragtag group of men and shows us how God’s power changed them from ordinary to extraordinary.

We Are Perfectly Incapable

Pete Briscoe

Has Jesus ever prompted you to do something far beyond your abilities, and you find yourself thinking, "I just can’t do this?" It leaves us feeling inadequate. However, we should never apply the worldly principle of inadequacy to Kingdom promptings!

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus often asked the disciples to do things they were completely incapable of doing without Him. He wants to do the same in us. Christ is capable of doing in us what we could never do on our own.

How you feel about Jesus’ return probably has a lot to do with your understanding of the Bible.

There certainly will be a lot of action that day—the dead in Christ rising, non-believers swept away, believers lifted up to meet Jesus in the clouds. It will be an amazing day!

But if you’re not sure about how Jesus will react to you, you might be living in fear of His return. Maybe that fear stems from a struggle with sin, or you’re afraid you’ll be sinning at that exact moment He returns.

Have you ever heard biblical teaching that sounded a bit off? Sometimes it’s glaringly obvious, but other times, you might not even be aware that you’re being deceived.

False teaching can be extremely dangerous. It can lead you into temptation and outside of the Life Jesus came to give. So, how can you discern false teaching and avoid anything beyond the realm of God’s Truth?

Just like a true friend would warn you of impending danger, John cautions us in 1 John about the danger of being seduced by worldly things that are not from God but are from Satan—things that pull us away from Jesus and into harmful circumstances.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us what’s at stake when we maintain a flirtatious relationship with worldly things.

Scripture: 1 John 2:12 - 2:17

Distorted Love

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Is there ever a check in your spirit about whether you’re really a Christian? Studied out of context, 1 John 2:3, which mentions obeying commands, can read more like a warning to believers and cause us to doubt if we’re really children of God. But in reality, John brings to light in his letter the most beautiful and magnificent truth about the new command that Jesus wants us to focus on.

In this message, Pete Briscoe uses John’s letter to lift the burden of doubt we might carry about our salvation. And at the same time, teaches us about Jesus’ design for love that is counterintuitive to how we love on our own.

Scripture: 1 John 2:3 - 2:13

What Is God Really Like? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: What Is God Really Like?

People become remarkably imaginative about God.  But Scripture says, “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, neither has entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him, but God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.”

Not speculation, not imagination – but revelation. God is in the business of self-revelation, which is a fundamental tenant of Christianity. He has made human beings uniquely capable of receiving what He is revealing. And more than that, He has given us the ability of responding to what we are receiving.  

He reveals himself, first of all, in creation. Secondly, He reveals himself in covenant, and thirdly, He reveals himself in Christ. This is how we go about discovering what God is really like.

Scripture: Exodus 34:6 - 34:7

Our Bad Moments

Pete Briscoe

Series: Our Bad Moments

After your bad moments—moments when you flat-out blow it—what do you do? Do you isolate yourself? Do you self-condemn? Do you struggle to seek forgiveness and to forgive yourself?

In this message from Luke 22, Pete Briscoe talks about the road back to intimacy with Jesus after we feel like we’ve disqualified ourselves.

Scripture: Luke 22

Living Above the Circumstances

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Above the Circumstances

Does anyone ever ask, “How are you?” and you reply, “Well, under the circumstances....” The problem is that’s exactly where we are living—under the circumstances! How do we rise above the adversity and sing a song of praise? From the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel, Jill Briscoe shows us how Hannah, under very difficult circumstances, found the secret. 

Scripture: 1 Samuel 1 , 1 Samuel 2

Abiding for a Purpose, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Alive and Free

John 15 tells us that we’re abiding in Christ when we’re living in Him and He’s living in us. And then goes on to explain that it’s through our abiding in Christ that we will bear much fruit and prove to be His disciples.

What do disciples of Jesus Christ do? The great commission from Jesus is for us to “Go therefore and make disciples…” (Matthew 28:19). So, how are you doing making disciples?

For many of us, just the idea makes us tongue-tied and our palms sweat. Why do we get flustered over the idea of making disciples for Jesus, whom we love and trust?  Maybe it’s because we’ve made it more difficult and complicated than it actually is.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from John 2 and John 15 to show how simple, rich, deep, and beautiful abiding is, and what bearing fruit looks like in the life of a disciple who is abiding in Jesus.

Scripture: John 2 , John 15:1 - 15:17

Discover the Real You, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Alive and Free

Do you ever doubt yourself—thinking you’re the worst team player, the worst speaker, or maybe the worst sinner among professing Christians? 

What you believe about yourself determines how you see yourself. So, if you think you’re the worst sinner, you’ll start to see yourself as dirty, or as a liar, or as unfaithful, or whatever.

But Scripture says in Colossians 1:22, “But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation…” Even if you don’t feel holy and without blemish, this is how God sees you! Do you believe it? If His view of you doesn’t match how you see yourself, who has the right view of you? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe helps you sort through this identity conflict so you can find contentment and satisfaction in knowing who you truly are in Christ.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:16 - 4:18 , Colossians 1:22

Renewed Self-Image

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Renewal

Robert Burns, the Scottish poet, wrote, "Oh that God the gift would give us, to see ourselves as others see us." This can be helpful—and devastating! But what really matters is that we see ourselves from the divine perspective. This view yields a true self image!

Scripture: Colossians 3:9 - 3:11

Renewed Disciplines

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Renewal

The orientation of much modern spirituality is inward. That of Christian spirituality is upward and outward. Not that the inward is neglected but it requires a focus on "things above" to motivate and empower us to discipline what we find within ourselves.

Scripture: Colossians 3:5 - 3:8
