John Hagee (December-12-2022) Daily Devotion: John 4:23 - But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

God created the heavens and the earth from nothing. He formed the man and woman and spoke all life into existence. Yet, our all-powerful Father, Who needed no outside assistance or resources, is looking for something.

He is seeking those who will worship Him in spirit and truth. He is not concerned with outward appearances or obsolete traditions. He is looking for those who will bow in His presence and lift up hearts filled with genuine adoration.

In II Chronicles 16:9, we learn that the eyes of the Lord are running to and fro throughout the whole earth looking for those whose hearts are loyal to Him; He wants to strengthen and support His children who are wholly and completely devoted to Him.

Too often, we have behaved like disgruntled children, unhappy with our lot and ungrateful for the gifts we have received, demanding more and better. When the wise men followed the star to Bethlehem, they must have been surprised to discover a child, but they fell on their faces and worshiped Him wholeheartedly.

We now know how that Child turned the world upside down. Our lives will never be the same because of Him. As the Father’s eyes roam the earth, may His search stop here as He finds us worshiping in spirit and truth.

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 God the glory He is due. Come and adore Christ the Lord.

Joyce Meyer (December-12-2021) Daily Devotion: Start Something Good. 

Start something good in someone's life today. Plant faith for someone’s healing. Plant hope for restoration in a seemingly hopeless situation. A sincere compliment can plant life-changing confidence in someone who is starving for encouragement. Your forgiveness of an ongoing offense can plant a seed for a miracle breakthrough in that relationship.

Pray for someone else's need, or give a gift to meet it yourself. Start something positive to honor God. Remember, He won't ask you to give anything that He doesn't give you the grace to give. When you’re obedient to give what He asks you to, you’ll eventually enjoy an abundant harvest in your own life.

Prayer Starter: Lord, please show me what and where You want me to give. Thank You for blessing me so I can bless the people around me, and for directing my steps. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (December-11-2021) Daily Devotion: God’s Vision for You. 

God’s plan for the people of Israel was only for their good, yet they wandered around in the wilderness for 40 years on what was actually an 11-day journey. Why? Was it their enemies, their circumstances, the trials along the way, or something entirely different that kept them from arriving at their destination in a timely manner?To really know the answer to this question, let’s look back a little. God had called the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt to go to the land He had promised to give them as a perpetual inheritance—a land that flowed with milk, honey and every good thing they could imagine—a land in which there would be no shortage of anything they needed—a land of prosperity in every realm of their existence.

But the Israelites had no positive vision for their lives—no dreams. They knew where they came from, but they didn’t know where they were going. Everything was based on what they had seen in the past or what they could presently see—they didn’t know how to see the future with eyes of faith.We really shouldn’t view the Israelites with astonishment, because most of us unknowingly do the same thing they did; we keep dealing with the same problems over and over again. The disappointing result is that it takes us years to experience victory over something that could have and should have been dealt with quickly.

I come from a background of abuse. My childhood was filled with fear and torment, and my personality was a mess! I built up walls of protection to keep people from hurting me, not realizing that while I was locking others out, I was also locking myself in. I was filled with fear, and believed that the only way I could face life was to be in control so no one could hurt me. 

As a young adult trying to live for Christ and follow the Christian lifestyle, I knew where I had come from, but I didn’t know where I was going. I felt that my future would always be marred by my past. I thought, How could anyone with a past like mine ever be all right? It’s impossible!

But Jesus had a different plan. He said, The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me . . . to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity] (Luke 4:18).

Jesus came to open the prison doors and set the captives free—and that included me. However, I did not make any progress until I started to believe that I really could be set free. I had to get rid of my negative thinking and replace it with a positive vision for my life—God’s vision for me. I had to believe that neither my past nor my present could determine my future. Only then could Jesus free me from the bondage of my past—and free me, He did. Looking back, I realize what a miracle that was!

You may have had a miserable past; you might even be in current circumstances that are extremely negative and depressing. You may be facing situations that are so bad it seems you have no real reason to hope. But I say to you boldly: Your future is not determined by your past or your present!

Most of the generation the Lord called out of Egypt never entered into the Promised Land. Instead, they died in the wilderness. To me, this is one of the saddest things that can happen to a child of God—to have so much available and yet never be able to enjoy any of it.

Start believing that God’s Word is true. Mark 9:23 reminds you that with God all things are possible. Because you serve a God who created everything you see out of the unseen realm (see Hebrews 11:3), you can give Him your nothingness and watch Him go to work on your behalf. All you have to do is have faith in Him and believe His Word—He will do the rest!

Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for loving me and having a vision—a good plan—for my life. Please help me overcome any negative mindsets that are keeping me from the future You have for me, and make my life what You want it to be. In Jesus’ name, amen.

John Hagee December-09-2022 Daily Devotion: Luke 10:27 - So [Jesus] answered and said, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself’.

One of the greatest gifts we can bring to Jesus Christ is the act of fully surrendering our lives to Him. He surrendered His life for us.
 
Do you love Him with all of your heart? Have you turned over your relationships, career, possessions, and dreams for the future? Wherever your treasure is, that is where your heart can be found.
 
Do you love Him with all of your soul? When we come to the end of our logic, we can relinquish our control and trust Him with the outcome – even when our faith seems unreasonable.
 
Do you love Him with all of your strength? He gave us natural abilities to utilize for the kingdom of God. All of those gifts are for use in His purposes and for His glory.
 
Do you love Him with all of your mind? The greatest wars we wage occur right between our ears. We must cast down anything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
 
Do you love your neighbor as yourself? Jesus came to us, reached out to us first. Are you extending a hand to your neighbor, preferring them, lifting them up, and meeting their needs? Surrender your life to the One Who laid down His.  

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. May you present yourself as a living sacrifice to the Lord – transformed by His Spirit and conformed to His image.

Joyce Meyer (December-09-2021) Daily Devotion: Never Too Late.

Like Martha, we might think it’s too late for God to help us with our problems because we’ve had them too long, or they’re just too difficult to solve. But God has shown over and over in His Word that nothing is impossible for Him. If He can raise someone from the dead, surely He can bring home a lost child, resurrect a dead marriage, or even fulfill a dream buried deep in your heart.

I want to encourage you not to give up on anyone or anything. Talk to God about it… give Him a chance to work in your life and circumstances. Be patient and expect something good to happen! I always say I’d rather ask God for a lot and only get half of it than ask Him for a little and get all of it. If you’re going to ask God for anything, it might as well be something that seems impossible.

Speak this: God can do anything, so I am going to ask Him for everything!

Prayer Starter: Father, please help me not to write off certain dreams or hopes because they haven’t happened yet. Thank You for caring about everything on my mind, and for being willing to intervene. Show me what I need to do, and help me trust You to do the rest. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joel Osteen (December-08-2022) Today's Word: Life Purpose

Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 14:27, NKJV  -  "For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?"

Today’s Word: God has a purpose for your life. He's already planned out your days, lined up the different scenes, and established your ending. Today's Scripture asks, "Who can stop it? Who will turn it back? God is saying, "I'm the all-powerful Creator of the universe. Now, who can stop My plan for your life? Who can change your ending? People can't, unfair situations can't, tragedy can't. I have the final say."

When you feel like you're on a life detour, when you come to a dead-end with something you don't understand, don't get upset or live frustrated. It's just one scene. When all the scenes of your life come together, it's going to work out for your good. What looks like a setback is really God setting you up to get you to the fullness of your destiny. Stay in peace, knowing that God is directing your steps. Even the detours, the dead ends, and the U-turns will work to your advantage.

Prayer for Today: "Father, thank You for the promise that You always cause me to triumph in the end. Thank You that You are directing my steps and working out Your purpose for my life. I'm going to stay in peace knowing that no one and nothing can stop Your plan. In Jesus' Name, Amen."

John Hagee (December-08-2022) Daily Devotion: Matthew 2:11b - And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

When Jesus wrapped Himself in flesh and was born to a virgin, wise men from the East came searching for Him. They did not come empty-handed; they brought gifts for the tiny King.

When they found Him, they fell down to worship before they opened up their treasures and presented offerings to Him.

The gold they gave provided for Mary and Joseph’s flight to Egypt after Herod’s evil decree to murder all the boys who were two years old and under. Before the need arose, God knew that the poor carpenter would need travel funds to make their getaway.

The frankincense and myrrh hinted at Jesus’ ministry. He was anointed to heal and set free, to break the yokes and lift the burdens. These gifts also pointed to His death. He was born to die, so that we might live.

As Christmas approaches, what gifts can you bring the King? Do you celebrate His advent with exceedingly great joy? When you come into His presence, do you bow to worship? Like the wise men of old, bring the gift of your attitude – a humble adoration that celebrates His arrival.

Like they did, focus all of your attention on the One Who came for you. Determine to seek Him until you find Him – no matter how far you must travel or how difficult the journey. Bring your gifts to Him!

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. All blessing, honor, and glory belong to Jesus. Bring your treasures to the King!

Today's Bible Reading:

  • Psalms & Proverbs - Psalm 127:1-5, Proverbs 29:15-17

Joyce Meyer (December-08-2021) Daily Devotion: Are You Empty?

Today's scripture mentions "empty vessels," which is what all of us are. We don't have anything useful within ourselves, except the power and presence of God that can flow out of us. Certainly, we have value, but only because of the value God assigned to us by paying such a high price for our redemption: the blood of His Son, Jesus. In Christ, we exist and have everything, but in our flesh (who we are apart from Him), there is nothing of any eternal value.

Without Jesus, what do we have to offer God? Nothing. God doesn’t need us; He can do anything He needs to do without us. But He wants to invite us into His work, which is a great privilege and honor, and one that requires us to empty ourselves so we can be filled with Him.

Now, emptying ourselves is not an easy task, and it definitely doesn’t happen quickly. I spent many years wondering if I would ever start to show humility instead of pride, trusting God’s strength instead of mine. If you feel the same way, let me encourage you that as long as you don't give up, you are making progress. If we’re pressing on and are sincere about growing spiritually, we’ll eventually be like the vessels in today's scripture—empty of ourselves and ready to be used by God to fulfill His great purposes for our lives.

Prayer Starter: Father, please empty me of everything in me that isn’t from You, and fill me with Your Spirit. Thank You for treasuring me, helping me grow, and making me truly valuable. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joel Osteen (December-07-2020) Today's Word: Prequalified for Double.

Today's Scripture: For we know him who said, “Justice belongs to me; I will repay them.” Hebrews 10:30, TLB. 

Today's Word: God has seen every unfair thing you’ve gone through, every person who did you wrong, every tear, every lonely night. He’s your heavenly Father, and He knows how to pay you back for what’s unfair. You don’t have to live worried because God is going to make up for the wrongs that were done.

The prophet Isaiah says that when God pays you back, “He will give you a twofold recompense.” That means God will pay you back double. In the Scripture, it wasn’t a coincidence that after all the heartache and pain that Job went through, he came out with double what he had before the testing of his faith. When you’re in an unfair situation, instead of getting sour, have a new perspective—that just qualified you for double. They meant it to harm you, but God is going to use it to promote you. When He pays you back, you’re going to come out loaded down with blessings.

A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that You are still on the throne, and You are my vindicator. Thank You that You can bring me out of difficulties better off that I was before they showed up. I believe that You are going to exceed my expectations and amaze me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

John Hagee (December-07-2022) Daily Devotion:  Matthew 2:11 - And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him.

During this joyous season, we reflect on Jesus, the greatest gift God ever gave. And if He freely sent us His precious Son, we know that He will not withhold any good thing.

The wise men followed the star to Bethlehem with “exceedingly great joy” (Matthew 2:10). They had pursued its light until it led them to Jesus. They were drawn irresistibly to worship this King of the Jews.

When they entered the house, they did not introduce themselves, proclaim themselves ambassadors from a foreign land or dispute the validity of His claim to be King. They simply wanted to thank Him for coming. He was the beautiful fulfillment of a long-ago promise.

In humility, they fell down and worshiped this young Child. These were men with power, position, and prosperity. They had traveled by caravan from afar, their camels loaded down with expensive gifts for the tiny King. Before anything else, they fell to their knees and poured out their adoration and gratitude.

The journey to this Christmas holiday may have been an arduous one this year. As we enter this season of light and love, let us do so with exceedingly great joy. Like the wise men, let us welcome Him into our world. Let us bow in humble adoration to our King.

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. Emmanuel – God with us – has come to stay. He will never leave you. Come into His presence with rejoicing and adoration!

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.
