The weekly devotions on this page are written by our staff, volunteers and those involved in intercessory prayer ministry. We are grateful for their contribution and heart after God.
A new devotion will be posted every Monday.
In Matthew 24, we read that Jesus sat upon the Mount of Olives with His disciples. They began to ask Him about the signs of His coming and the end of the world. The first thing He replied was, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” He warned them that false prophets would arise and that many would be deceived. He also related to them that they would hear of wars and rumors of wars, but that they should not let their hearts be troubled, for the end was not yet. He went on to say that nation would rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, that there would be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in many places, and that these would be the beginning of sorrows. Doesn’t this sound like today? Continue reading
The Old Testament (O.T.) was our School-Master. Galatians 3:24 gives us an understanding of why we needed the New Testament. Jesus fulfilled the O.T. and gave His life to bring in the New where everything is different. Jesus cried out when He died, “IT IS FINISHED” (THE O.T. Law) and the New had begun.
Hebrews 8:7 — “If the Old Testament had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for the second.”
John 1:1 — “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. KJV
John 1:14 — “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…”
John 10:30 — “I and [my] Father are one.”
With these three verses, we find that Jesus, Who was and is the Word, existed in the beginning but was transformed into human form and lived as we do, here on earth. So now, the Word transcends time and space. This is truly supernatural according to our mortal minds.
Yet, God wants us to be like Him in spirit. We, too, can access the spiritual realm and not limit how the Lord chooses to use us. Continue reading
Last Sunday, September 11, 2016, our church shared an awesome time together in worship and praise remembering 9/11.
Recently we were honored to bring on board a new Senior Pastor, Joseph Campbell, to Morningside Church. After months of prayer God had answered our prayers for a Spirit-filled man of God with sincere compassion for the people.
Pastor Joe titled his message, “Lest We Forget.” After he gave the honor and remembrance our country deserved, he then proceeded to address the congregation and turned his message to each one of us. Continue reading
I am starting with a special scripture from Isaiah 40:31 which says, “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
God works His timing for those He loves and those who love Him; so at times He appears to be silent. However, God promises to answer our prayers. Continue reading
