John Hagee (December-26-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 2:7a - Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious…

To us, a Child was born, a Son was given. However, a gift must be accepted before it can be received. If we refuse the proffered gift, it does not belong to us.

The most important question you will ever answer is this one: Have you accepted the gift of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ? Have you received Him as Savior and Lord? If you have not opened your heart to invite Him in, this gift of salvation is not yours.

Attending church services, singing songs, giving generous gifts or doing good deeds does not make us His. Only through confessing Him with our mouths and believing in our hearts do we gladly accept the gift of salvation to become His children.

Without Him, we are still dead in sin. We have no claim to His joy or peace, no authority to bind the powers and principalities of darkness. Our names are not recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life. No mansion awaits us in heaven.

For those who do believe and accept Him, He is precious. He is Wonderful, a Counselor Who holds the answers to all of life’s issues. He is our Mighty God, our powerful Defender. As our Everlasting Father, He loves, accepts, and adopts us. We rest securely in the Prince of Peace.

The question is: Have you accepted Jesus Christ? Hold out your hands and your heart to receive this incomparable Gift!

Today's Blessing: - May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Give all praise, honor, and glory to Jesus – your Song, Strength, and Salvation!

John Hagee (September-06-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 5:8 - Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour

One of the most crucial tactics in military science is to know the enemy. In order to defeat an enemy, one must know that enemy.

Today, many scoff at the idea of a spiritual realm of darkness where Satan rules, where his fiendish agents carry out missions to “steal, kill, and destroy” (John 10:10). But Ephesians 6:12 warns believers that we do not fight against flesh and blood. We battle against satanic beings, evil princes of darkness, and spiritual envoys from the headquarters of wickedness.

While we may not perceive them with natural eyes, we need not look far to see the damage that they have perpetrated: a global pandemic, a world thrown into confusion, seething racial tensions, economic collapse, soaring unemployment, and broken families. Satan is on the prowl!

Now is the time to be sober and vigilant and aware of the father of lies! Now is the time to suit up; put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, and the helmet of salvation. Now is the time to wield the flaming sword of the Word of God, to heft the shield of faith to dodge every burning missile the enemy hurls at us. In this life-and-death fight to the finish, now is the time to pray.

Today's Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Be strong and courageous! God is for us, so who can stand against us? The Commander of Angel Armies will not be overcome!

John Hagee (August-01-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 3:15 - But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.

Am I my brother’s keeper? We are, and may the Lord help us to be true to His holy word.  

Romans 10:13-15 tells us that whomever calls on the Lord will be saved. How will a person call on Jesus if they have never heard of Him unless someone speaks up? We are God’s messengers of grace.

Soul winning is not a gift; it is a commission from Christ. He commands every single believer to be His witness, to tell His story. How do we respond when someone shares a problem with us?  

We can listen, show compassion, and offer intellectual solutions, but more importantly, we can point them to the One Who holds the power to help. As simplistic as it sounds, Jesus is the Answer. When we take their hands and begin to pray, heaven comes down. Remedies that we did not see will suddenly become apparent. The knowledge that we do not possess will pour from our mouths.  

When we stand up and step up, God will do things through us that we thought impossible. Ask Him to alert you to every opportunity to share His glorious message. Oh, the treasure that we have to give!

Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Determine to become a messenger of His grace so others may embrace the hope and love only found in God the Father through Jesus, His Son.

John Hagee (March-18-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 2:9 - But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people …

Let’s face it. As Bible-believing Christians, we are a little strange by the standards of this world. We live by another set of rules.

We feel supreme love for One we have never seen and talk to someone that we have not touched. We empty ourselves to become full, decreasing so that Christ might increase. We lower ourselves to become servants of all so that we will rise up as the first. When we are at our absolute weakest, He makes us strong.

When we are poor, we are very rich. We give our things away so that we may keep them forever. We deposit treasures in a heavenly bank that we have yet to visit.

We die daily, little by little, to lay down our lives so that we can live forever. Death is not a tragedy for us believers; it is a reward for the righteous!

We perceive the invisible. He has given us eyes to see! We discern the inaudible. He has given us ears to hear! Because we are rooted and grounded in Him, He has opened our understanding to the Truth that this world cannot comprehend.

In His upside-down, inside-out economy, the impossible is made possible for those who are odd for God.

Blessing:  May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May God give you eyes to see, ears to hear, and a mind that comprehends His will and work for you in this world. May the power of your potential be released to complete it!

  • Old Testament - Numbers 26:52-28:14
  • New Testament - Luke 3:1-22
  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 61:1-8, Proverbs 11:16-17

John Hagee (February-12-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 4:8 - And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins’.

Every relationship suffers seasons of difficulty. All marriages experience wear and tear. It speaks to life and our own humanity.

Circumstances beyond our control set us reeling. The day-to-day chipping away at our relationships can leave us bruised and exposed. Two imperfect people in close proximity, struggling against selfishness, often hurt one another.

Jesus, our Prince of Peace, brings hope to re-establish broken borders in our marriages. The enemy breaches the walls to cause isolation, resentment, and pain, but Jesus raises up a standard against him. He carries the banner of love into battle to vanquish him.

When storms arise – as they inevitably do – we must assess the damage to our relationships. We must determine if we played a role in inflicting the hurt, and we must be quick to repent and restore. Was I kind or seeking my own selfish desire? (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) What action can I take to begin the rebuilding process right away?

When our spouse causes us pain, Ephesians 4:32 encourages us to be compassionate, forgiving one another in the same way that Jesus has forgiven us. Confess your faults to one another, pray for one another, and God will bring healing and harmony (James 5:16).

Most importantly, love one another fervently. Tender devotion pulls up a quilt to generously cover offenses.

Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Make Jesus the center of your marriage. A three-fold cord will not be easily broken. Let love lead!

  • Old Testament - Exodus 34:1-35:9
  • New Testament - Matthew 27:15-34
  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 33:12-22, Proverbs 9:1-6

John Hagee (February-08-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 2:9 - But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

Are we – the corporate church in America – choosing daily bread or deadly bread?

Statisticians report that more and more churches close every year in this nation. Fewer people read the Bible, believe in God, or follow the Ten Commandments. More people claim that Jesus is not the only way to heaven.

Jesus declared that God’s Word is truth (John 17:17), but we have disconnected from the eternal source of our strength. We are not reading. We are not living. We are not standing on the eternal promises of God.

We have forgotten our freedom. We have debated – more than declared – His truth. We have argued our agendas rather than committing to the Great Commission. We have reduced the Gospel to a religion of rules rather than relationship. We have fought for preference rather than carrying out our purpose. More than relevance, we need to be filled with God’s revelation!

We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, God’s own special possession. He has transported us out of darkness into His marvelous light for this purpose – so that we can proclaim His praises! Let us arise and shine again.

Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May His people humble themselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways. May He hear us from heaven, forgive us, and heal our land. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today's Bible Reading:

  • New Testament - Matthew 25:31-26:13
  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 31:9-18, Proverbs 8:12-13

John Hagee (December-12-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 2:2-3 - …as newborn babies, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

Before we sit down to eat, we must wash our hands. No filth from the outside should go inside. Once we are clean, we are free to enjoy the tasty dishes.

God desires to feed us with good things, but if we have unclean hands, we cannot receive the blessings that He has stored up for us. Our hands are cleaned by the washing of the water of the Word.

Peter encouraged the New Testament believers to desire the pure milk of the word so that they could grow in their faith. When we bring new babies home from the hospital, we feed them milk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That is the only food they can digest.

As new believers, the only food we should desire and digest is the Word of God. It will cleanse and cause us to develop. Expect growing pains. When it reminds us to repent and change, we will be required to make choices. Will we decrease so that He might increase? Will we deny ourselves to follow Him?

As we are washed, we can lift up holy hands without fear or doubt. He will pour good things into those clean hands. Taste and see that the Lord is gracious!

Blessing: - May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Be nourished by the milk and meat of His Word to grow strong and healthy in Christ. Taste of His goodness and tell of His glory!

John Hagee (November-02-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 4:7 - But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers

Jesus Christ is coming soon! All around us, we see the signs of His nearing return.

Jesus warned us of these impending signs:  wars, rumors of wars, disease, famine, earthquakes, deceivers who claim to be Jesus, increased wickedness, a lack of love, and a migration of Jews back to Israel. For anyone who watches the news, these are daily realities that cause us to look up, because our redemption is closing in (Luke 21:28).

His approaching return stirs a sense of urgency in our hearts. We have work to do before the trumpet blast and His appearance in the clouds!  We must remain sober and alert because no one knows the day when He will descend to catch us away.

We are Christ’s ambassadors while we remain; He has given us everything we need to succeed in our mission. We must be devoted to prayer, good stewards over all the gifts He has entrusted to us. We will give an account for the ways that we manage all He has given. 

Watch and pray! Work diligently at the tasks that He places before you, but keep your eyes on the sky. We will not be caught off guard when we live in expectation of His return!

Today's Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. The King of kings is coming soon to catch us away. May your lamps be trimmed, and may He find you working and waiting for His return. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

  • Old Testament - Ezekiel 3:16-6:14
  • New Testament - Hebrews 4:1-16
  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 104:25-35, Proverbs 26:27

John Hagee (September-20-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 4:12-13 - Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

God sees us as victors! He expects us to win because He has already won the war. Before we are crowned as conquerors, though, we must prepare for conflict.

No one escapes this life without conflict. God gave Jericho to the Israelites, but after the walls tumbled down, the real hand-to-hand combat began. Victory was still assured, but they contended for the promise of God.

In today’s verse, Peter warned the church to expect the fiery trial – nothing strange about it. His next words were “but rejoice.” No whining in war, complaining in conflict, or bellyaching in battle! But rejoice!

If there is an enemy in front of you, rejoice that God is about to reveal His glory in you, and exceeding joy will break out. No one revels in a struggle, but we have this assurance: at the end of every conflict, glorious rejoicing awaits.

Do not fear the fight! Stand in the power of His Word and the authority of His name. The God that fights for you is greater than whatever fights against you. The battle belongs to Him.

Blessing:  May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Your greatest victory is before you! Nothing is impossible because God has called you more than a conqueror. Fight in the power of His might!

  • Old Testament - Isaiah 37:1-38:22
  • New Testament - Galatians 6:1-18
  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 65:1-13, Proverbs 23:24-25

John Hagee (August-28-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 5:5 - Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."

Every generation has a unique role to play in the family of God. Each one performs its part for the church’s mission to be accomplished.

We are one body with many members, and God has set each one in the place that He pleases. Every person is necessary to the mission. We bring our individual passions and personalities, our experiences and expertise to this rich body of believers. We weave them together in unity.

In humility, we submit to one another out of genuine love and affection. We put aside our personal preferences to pursue the power of peace. We place higher priority on the cause of Christ than insisting on having it our way.

In wisdom, the more mature generation can lead the way. Engage with younger believers who need to hear your stories of God’s faithfulness through the years. Be reverent, sound in your faith, and patient as you teach good things (Titus 2:2-3).

Younger members are building on the foundation laid by those who have gone before. Honor those testimonies and allow them to inform your faith walk. Share the new things that God is speaking to you.

Mutual submission accomplishes the mission with which Jesus has entrusted us. Our Christ-like conduct and our love for one another across the generations makes our faith appealing in every way.

Blessing:  May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you experience the confidence and rest that comes from knowing that God has a plan for you. May you always seek to fulfill the will of the Father as you follow in His footsteps. In Jesus’ name…amen.

Popular sermons online

As the concept suggests, a preacher is one who practices the art of preaching. The word "preaching" is originally associated with the religious sphere of activity. Language researchers note that of all religious texts, this word - like the type of activity itself - is most closely associated with Christianity. Preachers teach Bible truths when speaking to believers or unbelievers. 

Most of the Bible's sermons are in the New Testament. The sermon, as we find it in the Book of Acts and the Epistles, is expressive, but at the same time brief. It is built on the fundamental truths of Christianity: the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Church, in whatever form it is delivered - be it an ardent call to repentance for sins and salvation or the gospel story of a relationship with God and people - is by nature Christocentric.

Christian online preaching isn’t just a statement of spiritual truths, but as a sacred act, during which the preacher, in cooperation with the Lord the Holy Spirit, accomplishes the work of salvation for unbelieving listeners and the process of spiritual growth for the saved. Words spoken by a person cannot strengthen faith, but the biblical sermon in the mouths of preachers has a special power that can transform a person's soul. It is on this supernatural power of preaching that the preacher's authority is established.

Despite the fact that the evangelical Church teaches about the priesthood of every born-again Christian, in the work of biblical preaching, special attention is paid to the character and moral character of the preacher. The moral right to proclaim eternal biblical truths, to preach the Gospel from the pulpit or in another setting on behalf of the Church, can not only be those who know these truths, but who have Christian virtues, a character that reflects Christ. We are talking about a person who sincerely loves God and the people to whom he addresses, deeply interested in the eternal and earthly well-being of his listeners. A person with the good name of a Christian, who has a "good testimony" confirmed by time and the Church. Since we are talking about eternal, enduring truths, the writing of which was inspired by the holy God, proclaim them on behalf of the Author, i.e. of God Himself, it is permissible for the one who knows Him personally, has constant communion with Him and obeys Him implicitly. From the point of view of the essence and basis of the message that he proclaims, the preacher is not the author of his message and therefore doesn’t have the right to change the truths being proclaimed. He represents the interests and fulfills the will of the One who authorized him for this with the authority of His glorious name, and, therefore, the preacher is obliged to accurately convey to his audience what was entrusted to him by God. Freely interpreting Scripture and presenting to the audience their own interpretation of eternal biblical truths, posing as God's revelation on behalf of God, is not only a distortion of the truth, but also an ethical violation that entails consequences. However, in the sermon, it is not forbidden to mention personal experience, as well as the experience of other people, examples from various areas of public life to the extent that these examples correspond to the truth and contribute to a more accurate and understandable message of it.  

Of course, in the modern world, taking into account the development of communications, a preacher is expected to possess the skills of oratory. This is not a strict requirement, but it is always encouraged, as it is an undeniable advantage and serves the greater benefit and success of the preaching work.

There are many preachers in modern Christianity who have achieved recognized success in the preaching work.
