John Hagee (June-24-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

If we point our children in the direction of the cross, when they grow up, they will not be lost. Parents, we have a part to play in this principle!

We must prioritize our children and practice Godly balance in our homes. They are gifts, not inconveniences. No matter what life throws their way, our children need to live with the assurance that we will be there for them.

We must encourage our children and celebrate the uniqueness God placed in each of them. We must help them identify their strengths, develop their abilities, and work through their shortcomings. Remind them that, in God’s hands, they are masterpieces-in-the-making!

We must value our children equally – no playing favorites. God has a plan for each young life in our homes. Our own natural aversions or appreciation towards certain traits should never taint our attitudes or actions towards these impressionable ones.

We must nurture our children. In the same way, we ascertain that they eat healthy foods, get plenty of exercise and sleep, we must nurture their growth in the Lord. Feed them a steady diet of His Word. Teach them to exercise their faith. Surround them with the security of His love.

How we train today will determine how they live tomorrow.

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 our Heavenly Father equip you with every tool to train up your children in His ways. Be led by Him as you lead them into all truth.

John Hagee (June-19-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 20:7 - The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

Today, we honor the fathers in our lives! Before Batman ever made an appearance, many of us believed that our dads possessed super powers.

In the spirit of giving due honor, here’s to the dads who are passionate about pursuing Jesus and have made Him the priority of their lives. They embrace their position as spiritual head of their home and earnestly seek the will of their heavenly Father.

Here’s to the dads who realize that honoring their wives – second only to the Lord – is the best gift that they can give their children. They work diligently to provide for their families and intentionally create a safe space where their wives and children are liberated to become who God created them to be.

Here’s to the dads who are present and positive participants in their children’s lives. They train their children to love and obey Jesus, take them to church, and speak blessings into their futures. They chase down fly balls, dress up for daddy-daughter dances, and tell all the corny jokes.

Great dads can be found roughhousing in the backyard, cheering from the bleachers, tutoring at the kitchen table, helping a neighbor change a tire, holding his wife while she cries, raising his hands in worship – and a thousand other places. They may not be our last heroes, but they were certainly our first. Here’s to all the dads!

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 the Lord give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed as you walk in the power of His might. Amen and amen.

John Hagee (June-08-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 27:6 - Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

When Naaman could not hide his leprosy anymore, he confided directly in his boss, the king of Syria (2 Kings 5).  

The king was anxious at how Naaman’s revelation impacted himself. What if his enemies discovered that his star general was in a weakened condition and set out to attack them? When Naaman told his wife, she must have been frightened for the future. What would become of the comfortable life to which she was accustomed?  

Sometimes, we believe that concealing our sin is the best plan for ourselves and those that our confession might impact, but those who hide their sins never prosper. Unconfessed sin eats away at our souls and infects the very ones we hope to protect. Only those who confess to obtain mercy (Proverbs 28:13).  

Gladly embrace the wise counsel of a trusted friend over the acquaintance who comforts with what-we-want-to-hear platitudes. A true friend will correct out of love; it may wound us in the short term but works for our greater good. The one who kisses and compliments may be motivated by a hidden agenda and has no concern for our welfare.  

Seek out a trustworthy envoy who will pray and speak the truth of God – even if it stings – to bring about the healing that leads to forgiveness and life.

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. Acknowledge your sins and confess them to the Father. He is a Faithful Friend who forgives and cleanses you from all unrighteousness.

John Hagee (May-09-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 18:10 - The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Throughout the Bible, names are often linked with the purposes of God. Abraham means father of multitudes. Eve was the mother of all who were living. God renamed Jacob, the deceiver, to become Israel, he who prevails with God.

When Moses asked God Whom he should tell the Israelites had sent him to deliver them, God responded, “I AM.” Day after day, He revealed more of Himself through miraculous exploits.

The current situation has driven us into our homes and to our knees. He is revealing Himself as Jehovah Shammah, the Lord Who is there.

When difficult circumstances drive us to our knees, He reveals Himself as Jehovah Shammah, the Lord Who is there.

When anxiety threatens to overwhelm, He is Jehovah Shalom, our Peace. He calms every fear and fills us with a peace that guards our hearts and minds.

Greater than any virus, sickness or disease, He is Jehovah Rophe, the God Who heals us. The stripes on Jesus’ back purchased our healing.

He is Jehovah Nissi, the Banner over us. When we align ourselves with God, we fight under His banner and with His help. The battle already belongs to Him!

There is a name above every other name. That name is Jesus! Call on Him in the day of trouble, and He will answer and deliver.

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. Jesus watches over you. Declare His name as the banner that will lead you to victory!

John Hagee (May-08-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 31:25 - Strength and honor are her clothing…

On Mother’s Day, let us honor the ladies in our lives! Whether a mother or daughter, a wife or single, a stay-at-home mom or a career woman, you are precious in the sight of God and a marvelous part of His plan.

Throughout the Bible, God uses women to accomplish His purposes. Graceful Abigail saved her foolish husband with her intelligence and hospitality. Risking her own life, courageous Esther rescued her fellow Jews from certain death. Deborah – a prophetess, poet, and warrior – served as a judge in Israel.

In the New Testament, Anna, the prophetess, served the Lord ceaselessly in the Temple. Successful businesswoman, Lydia, was the first recorded Christian convert in Europe. Paul entrusted Pheobe, a deaconess in the church at Cenchrea, to carry his letter to the Romans.

Jesus emphasized the worth of women. He healed them–the woman with the issue of blood and Jairus’ daughter who was presumed dead. He defended them when He rebuked those who criticized Mary for anointing His feet with expensive perfume. He delivered them; Mary Magdalene’s life changed forever when He cast out seven demons. He provided for them; from the Cross, He charged John to care for His mother.

On this day, we celebrate the dignity, intelligence, virtue, and Godly influence of the women in our lives. We rise up to call them blessed. In the immortal words of Solomon, “You are altogether beautiful…” (Song of Songs 4:7).

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 every daughter of the Most High experience the smile of her Father today. Walk in His favor and light.

John Hagee (April-02-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 18:9 - He who is slothful in his work is a brother to him who is a great destroyer

If we believe in something, we will bleed for it. We will sweat to succeed. Sweat demonstrates effort and hard work. Only in the dictionary does success precede work!

In Luke 22:44, Jesus prayed in Gethsemane, and His sweat poured out like huge drops of blood. Why? He believed in us, and He was working for us. Jesus bore the burden of our humanity, and in that moment, He struggled mightily.
 
He accepted a weight with which we are too familiar. Jesus, Who had never known sin, became sin, so that we could be made right with God (2 Corinthians 5:21). Our sin and shame rolled onto His shoulders, and He was separated from the Father – an agony that He had never experienced.
 
Hours before, He prayed of the beautiful unity that He and the Father shared. Hours later, He cried from the Cross, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34). He poured out His blood and sweat. He completed the work to pay a debt that He did not owe.
 
Where are you investing your sweat? Are you about the Father’s business? We must energetically undertake the work that Jesus commanded: to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. Sweat comes before success.

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 commit to the Father’s business – to go and preach the Gospel and make disciples. May He bless the work of your hands and sweat of your brow!

John Hagee (March-24-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 28:13 - He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

We do not talk about sin in America; we talk about the problems that it creates. We do not talk about the origin; we focus on the symptoms. Until we get to the root of the cause, we will never discover the cure for our condition.

Issues that we face around the world are not merely behavioral symptoms that can be treated with better education, new legislation or citizen organization. Humans have a sin problem!

Mass shootings are not a gun control issue; they are a sin problem. Four thousand abortions per day is not a political issue; it is a sin problem.

Adultery is not a momentary lapse of judgment; it is a sin problem. Lying is not a matter of perspective; it is a sin problem. Battering a spouse is not an anger management issue; it is a sin problem.

Until we have the courage to acknowledge that we have a sin problem, we will never address it. Until we confess our trespasses, we will never be cured. If we freely admit our sin, our faithful and fair God will forgive us, cleanse us from all evil, and give us brand new lives. We will look different, and our society will look different. First, we must get to the root.

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. Let us humble ourselves in prayer, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways. May God forgive our sins and heal our land. In the powerful name of Jesus…amen.

John Hagee (March-12-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 28:13 - He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

When Jesus forgives our sin, it is a full pardon, a fresh start, and a new beginning. It is the lifting of a heavy burden and the canceling of an enormous debt.

Make no mistake though: forgiveness demands change. God’s forgiveness is filled with compassion, but it demands a change in our conduct. To forgive us without demanding a change in our conduct would make the grace of God an accomplice to evil.

When the Pharisees flung the adulterous woman at Jesus’ feet, they demanded a decision. They knew the Law of Moses called for her death by stoning. But Jesus knew what was in their hearts. After kneeling to write in the dust, He challenged: “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first” (John 8:7).

One by one, they dropped their stones and slunk away. They knew what was in their hearts too. Turning to the relieved woman, Jesus instructed, “Go and sin no more” (John 8:11). The point is clear. Jesus expected her to change.

Absolute grace that allows people to sin indefinitely and to still be in the favor of God is not a doctrine found in the Bible. When we confess and forsake our sins, we obtain mercy. Christ makes us new creatures, and He expects to see the change.

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. As the beloved child of God, imitate Christ. Walk in His love and forgiveness as you become more and more like Him.

John Hagee (February-24-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 13:6 - Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.

After heartbreak and a time of tears, each of us has a personal decision to make. We must reason it out to our own conclusion.

Is God’s Word true or is it not? If His promise is true, it will endure. If His Word is faithful, it will come to pass. If it is unerring, we must choose – in spite of our broken heart – to persevere and hold to God’s unchanging hand.

David and his mighty men faced the same dilemma in 1 Samuel 30. When their city was destroyed and their families carried into captivity, they wept bitter tears together. Afterwards, though, they made two distinct decisions. David sought the Lord, but his men began to look for someone to blame.

In their emotional state, they wanted to pin the fault on David. Why did he drag them off to war? Why did no one protect their own? Is he really the anointed king of Israel? And in their souls’ great grief, they decided to stone David.

We must take great care to guard our hearts in seasons of deep grief. Heartbreak will define us or we will define it. Our choices can drive us into the arms of our Redeemer or far away from Him. What we choose determines whether we will be a victim or a victor.

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 assured that God is with you. He will never leave nor forsake you. He is with you to the very end. Receive the comfort of His promise.

John Hagee (February-20-2022) Daily Devotional: Proverbs 11:14 - Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

“And the two shall become one flesh” is not without challenges! Many couples falter early in their marriages because they lack wise counsel when navigating the transition of two individuals merging to become one unit.

The friends that we choose at this important juncture have the power to determine our future. A source that shares good, Godly counsel can determine a successful outcome.

Good counsel can be found in those couples who have negotiated this process successfully. They possess the experience and expertise that comes from charting a path through difficult, unknown waters. They have trusted God to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18). They have held onto one another to discover the depths and richness of seasoned married love.

Titus 2 encourages the more mature women to be “teachers of good things” – to nurture the younger women so that they will know how to love their husbands and children well, create happy homes, and be good wives.

The older men are exhorted to model dignity, wisdom, faith, and endurance. By following their example, the younger men will learn discipline. In this way, how we live will enhance – not detract – from the Gospel message that we carry. Seek out the Godly counsel that leads to success!

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 seek Godly counsel to build a strong marriage. May you grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ so your marriage flourishes and thrives!

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.
