  • The Institution of Marriage - Genesis 2:7-8: God created man and gave him work to do, but there was still something lacking. Man was alone. God saw that this was not good, and so he brought forth the woman out of the man and presented her to Adam. Do you see your marriage as instituted by God and as such one of the most valuable possessions you have this side of Heaven?

  • A Mother's Tears - Genesis 3:16:  The most underestimated responsibility and love is that of a mother.  The troubles do not end when the childbirth is over yet it is something that a mother never escape.  What kind of help and comfort does God provide for mothers?
  • Who are the Reprobates? - Genesis 6:1-3: We have heard much of my life of the danger of sinning away our day of grace. This idea is that the Holy Spirit will only work in our hearts for so long, but at some time will cease and we are at that time, even if still alive, condemned to hell. Is it a Bible teaching? Is it possible that there are people among us who could never get saved?

  • The Ark, A Type of Christ - Genesis 6:1-14:  Noah's Ark is a wonderful story for children.  We love to read about the animals that went in two by two and by sevens, but many times we miss out on seeing Jesus Christ in the ark.

  • A Land That the Lord Cares For - Genesis 12:1: The land of Israel has been in the headlines for the last 2,000 years. There are obvious reasons why. This is a land that the scriptures say the Lord cares for. This is the land that the Lord has chosen to place His name and it is a land where God's chosen people dwell.

  • Father Abraham - Genesis 18:19: We know much from the Bible about Abraham. We know that he is called a friend of God and we know he received the promised seed of Isaac. In this message we will look at Abraham as an example of a biblical father. What kind of father or parent are you?

  • The Battle To Go Forward - Genesis 19:1-16:  What can we learn from Lot's failures?  Lot faced some of the same trials that you face.  What will you do?

  • The Seeking of a Bride - Genesis 24:1-4 : This outline makes an application of the story of this chapter by using the main characters as types. This story is a beautiful picture of Jesus taking the church as His bride.
  • Serving With Love - Genesis 29:13-20: What is the purpose of your life? Would you serve the Lord if the only option presented to you was a job that you did not like to do? Do you murmur and complain in front of your friends, coworkers, or children about serving the Lord? Is your heart right in service? If not maybe you should go back to the example of Jacob and serve with love.

  • Unstable Souls - Genesis 49:2-3: This is a message preached from David F. Reagan a year before his departure from this world. His hope was that this would be a message of help, encouragement and warning.



  • Introduction to Leviticus - Leviticus 1:1-2: Leviticus is a wonderful book. If it was studied and meditated on like it should be, we would experience great revival. This sermon gives an overview of this powerful book.

  • Five Major Offerings - Leviticus 1:1-2: The Levitical sacrificial system had five separate and distinct offerings that could be made to the Lord. These are the five major offerings that are introduced in the first five chapters of Leviticus. Each of these offerings provide a practical application for a godly walk and a beautiful picture of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  • The Atonement - Leviticus 1: The Old Testament Saints did not understand everything that we understand today, but God still provided a way for them. The sacrificial system was for the purpose of fellowship with God. They too will base their eternal merit upon the shed blood of Christ.

  • The Acceptance of the Offering - Leviticus 1:1-4: This sermon is a continuation of the study of the book of Leviticus. It is not enough that the offering is brought; it must be acceptable to God. God must receive it.

  • The Bringing of the Burnt Offering - Leviticus 1:4-9:  Although the burnt offering is a picture of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, it is also a picture of the believer who gives himself unto the Lord. In this message, we will look at this second way of understanding the meaning of the burnt offering. We are to give ourselves entirely and without reserve to God.

  • The Regulations of the Burnt Offering - Leviticus 1:10-17: The burnt offering was a complete sacrifice. In all the other offerings, others (usually only the priests) were allowed to eat certain portions of the offered animal. However, in the burnt offering, nothing was to be eaten by man. It was all to be consumed on the altar as a gift to God. We need to look at our sacrifice to God in the same way. We need to give ourselves entirely to Him.

  • The Meat Offering - Leviticus 2:1-3: The meat offering has a very special typology that is revealed plainly by the cross references to the word meat as used by Christ. The meat offering is the offering of a “living sacrifice”—the kind Christians are supposed to give (Romans 12:1). It is also the kind of sacrifice Christ gave during His earthly ministry.

  • The Meat Offering - Part 2 - Leviticus 2: Almost every scholar wants to change the meat offering to something else—although they cannot decide what else.  The name is said to be confusing to Bible readers.  The meat offering has no animal flesh.  In fact, it is the only major offering in which no animals are killed.  Why is it called the meat offering?  Actually, there are very good reasons for calling it the meat offering.

  • The Meat Offering Conclusion - Leviticus 2: At the Feast of Pentecost there was to be offered a new meat offering. The new meat offering was like other meat offerings in most regards. There was, however, to be one major difference. The new meat offering was to be offered with leaven. Leaven, the type of sin, was to be included. Why?

  • A Thing Most Holy - Leviticus 2:1-8: The Meat Offering is a picture of the life of our Lord Jesus Christ and even points to His incarnation.

  • Prayer in the Meat Offering - Leviticus 2:1-3:  The meat offering is a picture of a life given to God.  The frankincense is a special kind of incense and is a picture of the prayers of God's people.  This presents a wonderful picture that a life that is to be completely dedicated to God must be a life of prayer.

  • The Law of the Peace Offering - Leviticus 3:1-5:  The Peace Offering in the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ in several ways.  It through Christ and Christ alone that we may have peace.

  • Failures in Fellowship - Leviticus 6:1-7:  Historically, the word fellow means to lay money; as to lay money down. A fellow was one who financially supported a business deal with someone else; a business partner.  Fellowship then is to be united together in covenant for a common purpose.

  • Sacrifice of Thanksgiving - Leviticus 7:11-15:  The first reference to thanksgiving in the Bible is in the description of the thanksgiving offering. It shows us the true value and of a thankful heart. Through it, we learn how God's expects us to practice thankfulness.

  • The Call For Holiness - Leviticus 11:  This sermon compares the dietary requirements of the Mosaic Law with the requirements for holiness in the life of the Christian.

  • Prostituting our Daughters - Leviticus 19:29: Satan has robbed the church blind of its daughters.  Do names like Jessie Daniels, Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, Shelly King, and Britney Spears ring a bell?  They all started out either going to Church as children or are in Church now.  Who’s next?  It may be that my daughter or your daughter is the next target of Satan.  So what shall we do?


  • Lessons from the Encampment - Numbers 2:1-2: Here is a group of people who have escaped the wrath of God by putting their faith in the shed blood of a Passover lamb. They are in the midst of a strange place traveling to a land that flows with milk and honey. We find that God is giving instructions for how the Israelites are to camp. Now we will find a few principles that will help us as we travel through our own wilderness. Have you been making light of the details of your life?  Have you been disobedient to God in those areas?  Have you considered what your disobedience in those areas is doing to those around you?

  • The Vow of the Nazarite - Numbers 6:1-8:  An interesting look into Biblical separation by looking at the vow of the Nazarite. 

  • Doorkeeper in the House of the Lord - Numbers 16:1-11, 16-18, 35:  Many today love to have the preeminence (3John 1:9) like Diotrephes of old.  Man desires a position. God takes a servant and gives him a job to do.

  • Crossing the Line With God - Numbers 20:1-11:  In this passage we find that Moses has crossed a line with God and will not be able to go into the promised land.  What can we learn from Moses' mistake that we might not make the same mistakes.

  • There is Still Water in the Rock - Numbers 20:1-11:  The children of Israel are in Kadesh, the place where they decided that they could not go and possess the land of Canaan.  The people are thirsty.  The Lord has provided water already out of a rock in Horeb.  This is a chapter of trials.


  • The Opening of the Ear - Deuteronomy 15:12-18:  We look on service today as something beneath our dignity. However, Jesus said, “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant”. And here, in this passage, a temporary servant becomes a lifetime servant of his own free will. What is the Lord trying to teach us?

  • To Be the People of God - Deuteronomy 27:9-10; 29:12-13:  The covenant of Moab deals more with the heart and the motive of love. We will look at one of the major provisions of the covenant and apply it to our lives.



  • Never Alone - Judges 6:13: Not a message about one person like Gideon, but about a condition of this life. It is called despair meaning all hope is gone. The Lord has left us on our own. Throughout scripture, God gives us examples of those who seemed to be left by the Lord and thought they had been deserted by Him but later found that He hadn't left them at all.

  • Defeating the Midianites in Your Life - Judges 7:15-23:  We all have our own Midianites to face.  By studying Gideon's strategy we can learn how we too can defeat the Midianites.



  • Against All Odds -1Samuel 14:1-2:We often look at the odds of something happening and decide by that if God will do something or not.  But God is bigger than the odds.  He can go against all the odds and go far beyond our own abilities.  We simply need to trust in Him.

  • An Army of Rejects - 1Samuel 22:1-2: Have you ever stopped and pondered why God would save you?  or How He could use you to do something?  Do you ever get a desire to do something for Him and then you remember who you are and all of the things that you need to straighten up before He would use you?  Though it is true that there are some things in life that we must correct before we can serve in higher capacities, many a saint of God has let opportunity after opportunity pass with the excuse of their own insufficiency.  The story of David’s soldiers ought to encourage you to serve now. 


  • Water From the Well - 2Samuel 23:13-17:  It's the story of three of David's mighty men who break through the battle line of the Philistines in order to bring David a drink of water from the well at Bethlehem. Though David had longed for the water, he does not drink of it because of the danger the men exposed themselves to in order to give to him. So, he poured the water out to the Lord. What's the significance of this story? How can we apply it to our lives?



  • Death in the Pot - 2Kings 4:38-41: God is always providing for His children. Satan exhausts himself poisoning what God has provided. What can we learn from this passage about how to protect what God has given us?



  • The Molten Sea - 2Chronicles 4:1-10: The Laver of the Tabernacle was replaced with ten lavers and the Molten Sea in Solomon’s Temple. The temple was a picture of the glorified Christ. This message looks at the significance of the Molten Sea.




  • Enlargement From Another Place - Esther 4:14:  The Bible refers to the enlarging of something 26 times. To enlarge simply means to make larger. Yet, as with so many Bible words, it has many blessings in the use God makes of the word.


  • The Wonderful Power of Music - Job 38:1-7; Revelation 5:8-10:  Music it universal.  It also has a tremendous amount of power or influence.  What is the author of your music?  It's either God or Satan.

  • The Dayspring From on High - Job 38:12-15:  The dayspring is the spring of the day; that is, the morning. This passage reveals some of the scientific details about this phenomenon. However, the dayspring is also a type of Jesus Christ, as revealed in the only other place in the Bible where the word occurs – Luke 1:78.


  • The Portion of the Wicked - Psalm 11:5-7: There are many terrible things in this life that we could experience that would not be pleasant. Possibly the worst thing that could happen to a person is to burn in a fire. It only lasts for a little while and you die, but still that is a horrible way to die. Imagine for a moment if you were on fire and you could not die. How terrible! Such is the lot of all those who have not put their trust for eternity in the finished work of Christ.

  • The Bible Doctrine of Preservation - Psalm 12:6-7:  Have you ever wondered if the Bible that you have has errors in it?  Can we find the word of God today or has it been lost in the original languages?  Is it even important to know whether we can find the words of God?  Let's allow the Bible speak for itself.

  • What to Do With Daily Sins - Psalm 32:1-5: When you get saved, the Lord takes care of your sin debt. However, daily sins can creep in and hinder fellowship. We must go to the Lord and confess these sins so that fellowship can be restored. There is absolutely no excuse for a Christian to have some sin between him/her and the Lord.

  • The Peace that Dwells Within - Psalm 37:1-8: The saints are told three times to “fret not” (v.1, 7, 8). Fret comes from a root word meaning to eat or to devour. We will find that Jesus Christ is the only solution to the disease of a fretting heart.

  • Conquering Stress God's Way - Psalm 42:11:  Our lives have become one continuous stream of activity, communication and information input.  We come to the end of ourselves. How did we get in this fix? What are we to do now? What is God’s way through this mess?

  • Be Still My Soul - Psalm 62: Are you trusting in the Lord and Him only? The Lord calls for us to be still and wait patiently on Him.

  • For That Thy Name is Near - Psalm 75:1:  Most people picture God as a grandfather way up in Heaven that is out of touch with what is going on, but we serve a God who is near to us.

  • The Way of the Lord - Psalm 77:Have you ever read footprints in the sand?  According to Psalm 77 the footprints of God are not known. 

  • Limiting the Holy God - Psalm 78:40-41:  John Calvin's doctrine doesn't work here.  Do you limit God?

  • Turn Us Again - Psalm 80: In this psalm, Israel has suffered affliction and destruction and now seeks the help of God her Shepherd. Israel is as a vine which once filled the land in prosperity but has been burned and cut down. The psalmist pleas with God to visit this vine and cause His face to shine on them once again.

  • What About the Heathen - Psalm 98:2: What about those who have never heard the gospel?  Will they be held accountable before God?

  • The Walk of A Young Man - Psalm 119:1-8:  The heart of a young man who loves God and loves His word, who desires to live for God.  Do you love Him?

  • Except the Lord Build the House - Psalm 127:1: This verse deals with building and battling (“keep the city”). These two actions describe much of our life and they certainly describe the Christian life.

  • Unity of the Brethren Psalm 133:1-3:  What is God's opinion of unity of the brethren? Though there are countless commands in the Bible dealing with separation let us not neglect to have unity with the brethren.
  • Even There - Psalm 139:7-12:  This Psalm speaks of the presence of the knowledge of God wherever we go. No matter where we find ourselves, we will find that God is “even there”.


  • Eight Misconceptions of Spanking - Proverbs 3:11: Eight modern misconceptions about spanking corrected from the scriptures with much practical advice for parents.

  • The Ministry of Wisdom - Proverbs 7:4-8:3:  On one side of the street the strange woman is enticing the simple man to commit sin, but at the same time on the other side of the street, wisdom is crying out with blessings to offer.  Who will you hear?

  • A Mother's Tears:  The most underestimated responsibility and love is that of a mother.  The troubles do not end when the childbirth is over yet it is something that a mother never escape.  What kind of help and comfort does God provide for mothers?

  • Raising Children God's Way - Proverbs 22:6:  The only way to begin to reach the masses is to begin at home by training your children in the way they should go.  What can we learn from this passage in Proverbs to help us do it God's way?

  • Remove Not the Ancient Landmarks - Proverbs 22:28:  Those that have gone on before us established some foundations.  They took stands for various things and God calls upon us to hold on to those things.  Are you removing the landmarks or fighting to keep them?


Song of Solomon



  • What's Wrong With God? - Jeremiah 2:4-9: People today have no concept of loyalty. We are wishy-washy. Today you love something and tomorrow you will hate it. We make decisions quicker than you can blink and then forsake them just as fast. The bad thing is that this has rolled over into our relationship with God.

  • Losing the Songs of Zion - Jeremiah 23:26:  We often reveal how man is perverting the words of God in the new versions of the Bible. But these words are the foundation for many other things as well.  One of the methods Satan does this is by removing the old hymns from our vocabulary. They are dying because the new versions do not lend them support.

  • The Field of Inheritance - Jeremiah 32:1-15: As believers, we have an amazing inheritance. In this story the Lord commands Jeremiah to buy a field from his uncle in his hometown of Anathoth. Jeremiah is unlikely to get any benefit from the field, but he is to buy it anyway. God uses this event to promise future restoration of Israel. Fields will again be bought and sold in the land. This is a message of hope and promise in a time of destruction.



  • Merchants of Souls - Ezekiel 13:17-21: Interpretation of the women that sew pillows to armholes and hunt for the souls of men – soothsayers; fortune tellers, sorcerers. The ones Ezekiel is called to pronounce judgment against are hunting the souls of God’s people and polluting God among His people. This points to a broader application. This message focuses on those who make merchandise of God’s people in order to pollute God among His people.

  • Lessons From the Tsunami - Ezekiel 26:15-21:  Much of the news in recent days has been about the earthquake and tsunami that hit Indonesia and other countries in that part of the world. Many have questioned why God would allow such a thing or if there is a God at all, but lessons can be learned from the Tsunami?





  • Special Revelation - Amos 3:7: General revelation is God’s revelation of truth to all men at all times. It comes through means such as circumstances (or God’s providential working in the affairs of men), conscience (the inner knowledge of men), and creation. Special revelation is God’s revelation to special or particular people at special or particular times (Hebrews 1:1).

  • A Firebrand Plucked Out of the Burning - Amos 4:1-13:  God is certainly a God of mercy and love. But He is also a God of judgment. Are you pushing the limits with God? Are you heading for judgment?









  • A Brand Plucked From the Fire - Zechariah 3:1-7:  The brand is already burning just like the sinner is already under the condemnation of God.  Salvation is merely pulling the sinner out of the fire.

  • Those That Stand By - Zechariah 3:7:  Joshua the priest is given a promise that if he will walk in the ways of the Lord and keep His charge that he (Joshua) can walk among "these that stand by".  Who are those that stand by?  What is the blessing of walking among them?

  • The Curse of the Flying Roll - Zechariah 5:1-4:  What is the flying roll and why is it a curse?  How can this curse also provide access to God?

  • The Fifth Month - Zechariah 7:1-3: Ab is the Jewish name for the fifth month in the religious calendar and the eleventh month of the civil calendar. This non-biblical name began to be used during the Babylonian captivity. The Bible simply calls this month the “fifth month.” This designation is found ten times in the Bible. The month of Ab begins with the new moon of August and always has thirty days. Agriculturally, the month of Ab is known in Israel as the time for the ripening of grapes, figs, and olives. 

  • Unprepared For the Blessings of God - Zechariah 7:1-14; 8:1-23:  We often get caught up in the times in which we live. When this happens, we become victims in our minds and lose our zeal for true service to God. This, in turn, leads to sin and judgment. The Lord will soon return. Are you ready?

  • The Coming Day of the Lord - Zechariah 14:1-5: Every day brings news of conflict and tragedy in the land of the Bible. We can easily become discouraged. But God promises a solution to the problems in the Middle East. Here, in Zechariah 14, is God's final solution. 



  • The Generation of Jesus Christ - Matthew 1:1:  In Adam all die, in Christ all are made alive.  The question is who is your father?

  • The Myth of Two Masters - Matthew 6:19-34: Many people today are attempting to live for the world while making claims of being a servant of God. The only problem is that according to scripture we cannot serve two masters. May we be like Joshua who said, "but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
  • Authority for Truth - Matthew 21:23:  What is truth and what is the authority that determines truth?  Truth is the most important thing that we can know and it is a life or death situation for us to know where we can find it.
  • Exalting Not Ourselves - Matthew 23:11-12: The haughty will be humbled by God. The humble will be honoured by God. As Christians, we are to humble ourselves before the Lord so that He may exalt us in His timing.

  • Hypocrites - Matthew 23:25-28:  There everywhere.  Every church seems to have some.  It is always the guy next to you instead of you.  Or is it?

  • The Abomination of Desolation - Matthew 24:15-21: In the days of the tribulation, the Antichrist will declare himself to be God. All of those who have rejected the gospel in the age of grace will worship him as God. You must trust Jesus Christ today as your Saviour so that you will not be among that number. Are you ready for the catching away of the saved?

  • What Will You Do With Jesus? - Matthew 27:11-26: This is the story of the judgment of Jesus before He was taken to be crucified. However, in reality, it is the story of the judgment of us all.

  • Setting a Man Over the Congregation - Matthew 27:15-23: Ordination is first of all a simple confirmation that God has indeed called a man and that he has faithfully shown the evidences of this call. It places some honor from those who do the ordaining upon the man who is being ordained.


  • Blind Man of Bethsaida - Mark 8:22-26:  Mark 8:22-26 gives the only Biblical record of the healing of the blind man of Bethsaida. It is also the only miracle in the life of Christ that is not immediate, for it takes two attempts in order to bring the man perfect sight. What can be the meaning of this?


  • Mary - The Maid Behind the Myth - Luke 1:26-38: Though there are many who give improper credit to Mary, the young maid was a godly lady. What can we learn from her by looking into the perfect word of God?

  • The Sending of John the Baptist - Luke 1:76-80: John the Baptist was a great man of God. He was sent to prepare the way for our Saviour Jesus Christ. He also did many other things while setting out to prepare the way. We need to step out of our comfort zone and do some of the things John the Baptist did or, as the Bible says, launch out into the deep Luke 5:4). Find out what wonderful things God has for you.
  • God's Plan for the Birth of Christ - Luke 2:1-20:  The birth of Christ was the beginning of God's great plan for redemption through His Son Jesus Christ.

  • A Mother's Tears - Luke 2:34:  The most underestimated responsibility and love is that of a mother.  The troubles do not end when the childbirth is over yet it is something that a mother never escape.  What kind of help and comfort does God provide for mothers?
  • New Wine in New Bottles - Luke 5:33-39: Why do the disciples of Jesus not fast like the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees? 1) Their circumstances are different (their bridegroom is with them). 2) The message Christ brings does not just amend the old way; it is radically different and brings complete change.

  • Lessons From the Storms of Life - Luke 8:22-25: The storms and trials of life are as sure to come your way as the breath you just took. We must work not to get bitter in the storm but, rather rejoice that our Father is allowing us another opportunity to learn.

  • Blessed Are Those Servants - Luke 12:35-38: The servant must understand his relationship to His Lord. The Lord is the master of the house and He rules it without challenge. The servant exists for the needs and service of the Lord. John 13:16 states, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.”
  • Except Ye Repent - Luke 13:1-5: We were once bombarded with the images of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The disciples asked Jesus about similar tragedies in His day. Will you wait until it is too late?
  • It's Almost Suppertime - Luke 14:15-24:  A feast was made and many were bidden, but when they would not come the servant was sent to the streets, highways and the hedges.  If you have accepted the invitation then you should be acting as the servant to bring in others.

  • Sins of the Elder Brother - Luke 15:11-13:  We often hear of the sins of the prodigal son but the truth is that most of us are guilty of the sins of the elder brother.

  • When Jesus Passed By - Luke 19:1-10:  Zacchaeus was a wee little man and a wee little man was he.  However, the Lord passed by and called out to him.  What will you do when Jesus comes your way?

  • Five Reasons Christians Fail to Finish the Course: The Christian life is pictured in the Bible as a race to run; a course to finish. The Apostle Paul was determined to finish his course with joy and the ministry which he had received of the Lord (Acts 20:24). Shortly before his death, he could give this testimony: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (2Timothy 4:7). Notice, he had finished his course.


  • A Man Sent From God - John 1:6-7:  There is a great famine in the land for men who will take a stand for God.  John the Baptist was such a man, what about you?

  • The Sufficiency of Christ - John 1:16-17:  The demands of the Christian life are great. You are not sure if you can match up. The truth is, you cannot. We can only serve the Lord fully through His enabling grace and power. That is the message of this sermon.

  • The Temptations of John the Baptist - John 1:19-22:  We often focus on the temptations of the flesh and the world and what they offer. However, many of our greatest struggles come from the temptations of life. We wonder who we are, what we have accomplished, and if followed the right path. John the Baptist dealt with these temptations. We need to learn to handle them as he did.

  • Like a Dove - John 1:32-33:  Many of the teachings about the Holy Ghost are false. But that is no reason to ignore Him. The Bible says much about the Holy Spirit and His working in the life of the believer. In scripture, the dove is given as a type and picture of the Holy Ghost. This type provides much valuable teaching and direction.

  • The Love of Christ - John 3:16: For God so loved the world..."The Love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell"

  • Little Is Much When God Is In It - John 6:1-11: The faith of the disciples was small, the resources were small and the need was large. How could such a large multitude be fed with little resources and a weak faith? It would take action on God's part.

  • The Kingdom Restored - Part 2 John 6:15: The Bible speaks much of a future kingdom that will be set up on this earth. Who is this kingdom for and will it be fulfilled?

  • Come to the Water - John 7:37-39: Are you one of Christ's so that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If so, are you daily living and walking in the power of the Spirit? 

  • Death - The Gate of Life - John 12:23-26: We always want goodness and life. However, if this is all we get, we miss out on the miraculous blessings of death.

  • Christ Our Life - John 14:6:  This world is filled with death.  According to the Bible in Adam we all die.  Where can we find hope?  Is there a source of life?  The answer is found in Jesus Christ.  Do you know Him?
  • Ye are the Branches - John 15:1-8: God must really enjoy gardens, trees and flowers. He planted a garden eastward in Eden and walked there with Adam (Genesis 2:8; Genesis 3:8). The Lord Jesus during His earthly ministry resorted oftentimes to a garden place to pray and near the throne of God we find a river and a tree of life bearing fruit. In John 15, were likened to branches shooting forth from the vine. This vine represents the Lord Jesus. God is the husbandman and He cares for the fruitfulness of the branches. What would He find should He come today?

  • Be Not Faithless, But Believing - John 20:27: The Christian life is founded upon faith. Even the very beginning of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ must be based upon our faith in His word. The Lord Jesus comes to Thomas, who had already believed many of the Lord's teachings, and says to him concerning the resurrection, "Be not faithless, but believing." Are you struggling with faith today? The Lord would admonish you with these same words.

  • Lovest Thou Me - John 21:15-17:  We know that Christ loved and continues to love us. But do we know how important it is that we love Him? The Bible states in no uncertain terms that if God is our Father, then we will love Christ (John 8:42).


  • Introduction to Acts: The book of Acts is a very important book, but it is also a very dangerous book in the hands of a false teacher. It is important for us to realize that this is a book of transition in the times of the early church.

  • The Kingdom Restored - Part 1 Acts 1:6-7:  The Bible speaks much of a future kingdom that will be set up on this earth. Who is this kingdom for and will it be fulfilled?

  • Did Christ Go To Hell - Acts 2:22-31:There is much controversy over this question.  What does the Bible say?

  • The Ministry of Barnabas - Acts 4:36-37: Do you have an honest love and burden for those who are saved and fallen by the wayside?  According to 1John 4:20, “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen.”  Will you be a Barnabas?  Will you give of yourself to help another?

  • The Abundant Christian - Acts 9:1-6, 15-16: Where will you be a hundred years hence? What will it matter that you ever lived? When are you going to make the commitment that will make your life one that made a difference?

  • Power and Freedom Through the Holy Spirit - Acts 10:  This is a sermon that was preached by J Frank Norris.  May God stir up some men to have the same kind of fire that Norris had.

  • The Wisdom of God - Acts 15:18: God has all wisdom. Any wisdom that a man has is wisdom he has received from God. Are you trusting in his wisdom today?

  • A Burning Revival - Acts 19:13-20:  Magic and witchcraft are on the rampage.  Chances are there is magic in your home.  What should we look for and how can we fix the problem if we find it?

  • The Martyrs for the Lord - Acts 22:12-24: Many are suffering today, but are they suffering for the right cause? There are those in history who have been willing to suffer and even lay down their lives for the furtherance of the gospel.


  • The Testimony of a Soul-Winner - Romans 1:14-16:  We come into contact with people who are lost and on their way to hell every day. Yet, we do nothing to reach them. Why do we not tell them? We do not lead others to Christ because we do not have the heart of the apostle Paul.

  • The Righteousness of God - Romans 1:16-18:  What is the righteousness of God? As with many truths in scripture, it has meaning beyond the obvious. And, as with the truth of God’s word, its meaning is eternally important and has the power to save and to sanctify us.

  • Step By Step Away From God - Romans 1:21-32:  Every step that man takes away from God, God takes a step away from him.  America is walking away, we no longer can say "one nation under God", and the ten commandments cannot even be posted.  So where do we go from here?

  • The Work of Christ to Save Our Souls - Romans 5:6-11:  What did the Lord do for our when He died for our sins?  Probably much more then you are aware of.

  • The Free Gift - Romans 5:12-21: Jesus has invited every soul to come to Him for rest (Matthew 11:28-20). This cancels all previous engagements. Won’t you accept His offer today?

  • He Maketh No Mistake - Romans 8:28:  One of the greatest blessings of the Christian life is the providential care of the Lord.  No matter what you are going through the Lord is working it out to your good.

  • The Wonder of it All - Romans 8:31-39:  Many believers today seem to lose the wonder of what God has done for them. Paul never lost that wonder. You hear this wonder in his testimony of 1Timothy 1:12-17. You see it in this passage as well. It begins, “What shall we say to these things?”


  • Stewards of the Mysteries of God - 1Corinthians 4:1-7:  A steward is one who is put in charge of something that does not belong to him. We are stewards.  How are you doing with what God has given you?

  • Go For the Gold - 1Corinthians 9:24-27:  Paul used sporting events to describe the spiritual life. He especially used the foot race. Believers are compared to runners in a race. Are you ready to run so that you may obtain the prize?

  • As It Hath Pleased Him - 1Corinthians 12:18: God has a plan for our lives. His ultimate desire is for us to bring Him glory. He works in our lives to bring us to that end.

  • The Full Gospel - 1Corinthians 15:1-4:  Many today are stopping short on the gospel.  The Catholics and many others have a crucified "Jesus" (another Jesus) laying around.  The problem is that even some Independent Baptists are heading the same direction.  What does the Bible say about the Gospel?

  • Ordinances - 1Corinthians 15:1-4:  The Lord Jesus Christ gave the church two ordinances.  Did you know that both of them bear the message of the death, burial and resurrection?

  • The Last Adam - 1Corinthians 15:45:  The first Adam lost what God gave him, but the last Adam came to take back all that the first Adam lost.  Jesus Christ is the last Adam and find out what He has done for us.


  • Prepared for Spiritual Battle - 2Corinthians 2:10-11:  One of the greatest defenses against any enemy is knowing where he is likely to attack and what strategy he is like to take. God gives us this knowledge through His word.  Are you prepared?

  • Troubled on Every Side - 2Corinthians 4:8; 7:5: The phrase "troubled on every side" is found two times in the scriptures, both found in 2Corinthians. Paul is in Macedonia and seems to be going through a time of trial. Here he is talking about the distresses, and trials and troubles he is going through. How does the apostle Paul handle being troubled on every side? How do you handle troubles and trials?

  • Promotion Day - 2Corinthians 5:1-8:  Looking for a promotion?  You may be looking in the wrong direction.

  • All Things New - 2Corinthians 5:16-21:  Everything about us is aging.  Even if you just bought a new car it is already old.  This is not true however of our relationship with God.


  • Our Purpose on Earth - Galatians 1:1-5:  Why are we here?  What am I supposed to do?  Who am I?  Why didn't God just take me on to Heaven after He saved me?  These questions and many others can be answered by looking into the word of God.

  • That Other Gospel - Galatians 1:1-9:  The Apostle Paul was shocked. He marveled that the Galatians had so quickly left the pure teachings of Christ and His gospel in order to follow another gospel. But this other gospel is still with us today. It always starts with the gospel of Christ. Then, it simply adds something, anything, to that gospel. Be sure that you have the pure gospel as your foundation for eternal life.


  • The Inheritance of the Saints - Ephesians 1:15-19:  Paul prayed for the Ephesians that the eyes of their understanding might be enlightened so that they might see, among other things, the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. One of the greatest blessings for which God’s people need to be thankful is their inheritance in Christ.

  • Fulfillment of the Old Testament Sacrifices in Christ - Ephesians 5:1-2:  In order for the Law to be fulfilled Jesus Christ had to fulfill all of the offerings of the Old Testament.  Look at the Old Testament sacrifices through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Our Spiritual Warfare - Ephesians 6:10-13: We are in a war. All of you may not be hearing the gunfire and seeing the smoke rise as the enemy attacks but that does not mean that the war has ceased. There are other people and other times perhaps even now where the sky is filled with smoke and gunshots are going off left and right. What should we do in such times? What should we be looking for? Why is the enemy attacking so strong? Who will help us?



  • The Preeminence of Jesus Christ - Colossians 1:9-18:  We have heard it taught and preached on many times that Jesus Christ is to be preeminent in our lives, but according to the Bible the preeminence of Christ has nothing to do with you.

  • Jesus Christ as the Head - Colossians 1:18: In the Bible, Jesus Christ is the Head of the Body, which is the church. If that is true, we ought to be able to look at the characteristics of the head in scripture and find it points to some characteristics of Jesus Christ. Let’s take a look at some of these and see if we can see Jesus. 

  • Christians and Santa Claus - Colossians 2:8: Many believers could be greatly offended that we would even deal with the issue of Santa Claus. “It is innocent”, you can hear them say. Yet a careful look into the scriptures would deny that this lie is anywhere near innocent.

  • Misusing the Elements of Music - Colossians 3:16: Music is one of the greatest tools of the devil. Music can be godly, but if placed in the hands of the wrong people it can be turned into one of the most ungodly things in this world. Listen as Pastor Reagan gives some examples of ways that the world can corrupt godly music.


  • A Home in Heaven - 1Thessalonians 4:13-18:  We who are saved by the blood know we are on our way to heaven, but we have questions about what heaven will be like. We wonder about our loved ones who have gone to heaven before us. Though we see as but through a glass darkly, God’s word reveals to us several things about the land of heaven.




  • A Word For Weary Soldiers - 2Timothy 2:11-13:  As soldiers we are to endure hardness, but sometimes we can get weary in the battle.  This passage has a word for you.  Also deals with 2Timothy 2:12 on the word "deny".

  • Inspiration - 2Timothy 3:14-17: Inspiration is the act of God by which He made every word of Scripture completely without error and completely what He wanted. It is equally as vital as is the doctrine of revelation and the doctrine of preservation. Do you have the inspired word of God?

  • Know the Holy Scriptures - 2Timothy 3:15-17:  The scriptures are the very words of God.  It has been said that it is God's love letter to man.  How much effort do you put forth to know the holy scriptures?




  • The Sevenfold Worthiness of the Son - Hebrews 1:1-3: This passage tells of the change in how God revealed His truth from the times of the Old Testament to the times of the New Testament.

  • The Sufferings of Christ - Hebrews 2:9-13: This is a sermon preached by Pastor Reagan dealing with the purchase of Christ's suffering, the perfecting of His suffering, and the purifying of His suffering.

  • God Remembers - Hebrews 6:10: Are you going through a period of time where you feel that God has forgotten you? Choose to accept the authority of the scriptures over your feelings and know God has not forsaken you.

  • Christ Our Surety - Hebrews 7:14-22:  In the Bible we find many references to transactions and covenants.  In our passage we find one of those references and it is found in the usage of the word surety.  Now we know that Christ was made a surety of a better testament, but what exactly does that mean?

  • The Way into the Holiest - Hebrews 9:1-9:  A great message about Jesus Christ and what we have in Him.

  • Not Without Blood - Hebrews 9:7: The Bible says that God requires a blood sacrifice. Some preachers say that if Jesus had not shed any blood, then His death would not have been a valid sacrifice. The question is why does God require a blood sacrifice--the life of the flesh is in the blood (you can not live without blood), but you can die without bleeding. What is the significance of the blood sacrifice?”

  • Say It With Deeds - Hebrews 11:4: Abel lived about 6,000 years ago. He did not leave behind any books. In fact, we do not have a single quotation from his lips. Yet, God gives testimony that he being dead yet speaks.

  • The Chastening of the Lord - Hebrews 12:1-11: As Christian’s we really don’t enjoy the idea of chastisement. If I were to ask someone if they want to be more like Christ, it is an easy yes. However, if I were to tell you that one of the ways to become more like Him is through chastisement, all of the sudden it doesn’t sound so good. Perhaps we aren’t as good of Christians as we think ourselves to be.

  • Without the Camp - Hebrews 13:9-16:  The lepers were told to go without the camp.  At one time it was a place of uncleanness, yet we are called to go outside the camp.



  • Be Clothed with Humility - 1Peter 5:5-7: Clothed with humility (1Peter 3:3-4); as pride is the primary and base sin (1Timothy 3:6), so humility can be seen as the primary and base virtue (Proverbs 15:33).




  • The Doctrine of Christ - 2John 1:9:  The phrase, doctrine of Christ, is found three times in the Bible. Two times in 2John 1:9 and once in Hebrews 6:1. It refers to the Bible teaching concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ. We must know who Christ is and believe in that Christ.



  • Earnestly Contending - Jude 1-4: Is Jesus Christ and His blood precious enough for you to Earnestly Contend for the faith? How are doing? Are you just going through the motions or have you given yourself in life and even in death to fighting the good fight of faith?
