The Gospel Revisted

We had several obstacles with the weather conditions and even a short power failure. However, we were finally able to get on track. The sermon begins at the 13:00 minute mark.

First Things

By Pastor James Brown Jr.

“And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” –Isaiah 58:12

Over the last 20 years, our ministry has always consisted of, though inconsistently many times, a desire to be a repairer of the breach in today’s American culture.

In the early years of ministry, we were focused too directly upon civil society without a proper focus on the foundations that build Christian civilizations. In other words, we were focused on the results instead of the necessary ingredients. This is a problem because without the right components it will never yield the desired product.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

By Rev. James Brown Jr.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” –Psalm 122:6

Fox News reported on Tuesday that President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, intending to move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem at a later date.

This move has drawn criticism from all sectors of American society but is largely supported by dispensational evangelicals like Pastor John Hagee, who is also the founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel.

Thoughts on Postmodernism and Reformation

Postmodernism has become an Orwellian nightmare causing difficulty for many Christians to respond doctrinally, philosophically, or practically. As a result, Christians either live in fear, intimidation, or unresponsiveness to Postmodern thugs. What most Christians fail to realize is that we have nothing to fear if we would respond in faithfulness, both doctrinally and practically, to the Word of God.

There is also a flip side—some are responding with their own intimidating behavior seeking to diminish our enemies through browbeating. Needless to say it is not working unless your whole objective is to get into fisticuffs.

One of our objectives is to stop the mouths of those who subvert whole houses (Titus 1:11). How are these “unruly and vain talkers and deceivers” to be silenced? Well, Paul told Titus the Church must have godly, qualified, and ordained pastors who hold fast the faithful word in order to be able by sound doctrine to exhort and convince those who contradict the Word (Titus 1:9).

The Depression of the Damned

By Pastor James Brown Jr.

“But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Cursed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. The Lord will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in all that you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and perish quickly on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken me. The Lord will make the pestilence stick to you until he has consumed you off the land that you are entering to take possession of it. The Lord will strike you with wasting disease and with fever, inflammation and fiery heat, and with drought and with blight and with mildew. They shall pursue you until you perish. And the heavens over your head shall be bronze, and the earth under you shall be iron. The Lord will make the rain of your land powder. From heaven dust shall come down on you until you are destroyed.” –Deuteronomy 28:15-24

In Deuteronomy 28 God explains His blessings and cursings upon covenant-keeping and covenant-breaking nations and peoples. It is a promise of prosperity to those nations who reverence and obey Him and damnation to those who rebel.
