(Our apologies for the sound quality... we were having some technical difficulties.) In this study, Pastor Rod teaches us in chapter 3 of Revelation on the church of Laiodicea. We learn that this church is neither hot nor cold for God. Jesus rebukes them for their lukewarmness but also tells them to repent and come back to Him. As believers especially as American Christians, we must draw closer and closer to Christ everyday and not fall into being lukewarm.

Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings 14 about king Amaziah, who did good and bad things in the eye of the Lord. Amaziah did not take down the temples of the false gods and he had the authority to do so. In this chapter, we learn how God never needs a bigger army. God is capable and able to teach lessons and bring victories. Amaziah had pride that caused destruction. Despite disobedience, God still loves, He cares, and His Mercy is always Greater.

Pastor Rod explains from Revelation 3:7-13 about the Church of Philadelphia. This is the 6th letter out of 7 to the Churches. They had little strength, but purposefully kept God's Word and had total reliance on God. The quote, " It is better to be faithful than to be famous" was true of the Church of Philadelphia. The message is, stop trying to be what you are not; just be what God has called you to be.

(Our apoligies, the audio file is not available.) Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings 13. In this story we see Jehoahaz, the wicked king of Israel cried out to God and God answered his prayer. Even when God had mercy and grace on Jehoahaz, he still doesn't repent. God gives grace, not so that we can continue sinning, but so that we can repent and turn to Him. Seek the full victory in life. Sow to the Spirit and reap spiritual blessings.

(Our apologies, the beginning of the video and audio did not record.) In this study of Revelation, Pastor Rod teaches us about the church of Sardis that John had wrote to on behalf of Jesus. This church was full of rebuke from the Lord because of their comfort, softness, and pleasure worship. They thought that they were saved and protected but were actually spiritually dead. As believers in Christ we must be watchful standing firm in our faith everyday so that we do not stumble or become complacent in our walk with God.

Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings 12. In this story we see the importance of being able to walk with the Lord on our own, to invest in our spiritual life, and the importance of not compromising. We must not let our walk with the Lord stand or depend on someone else, or else it will fall apart when that person is no longer here. Spend time in the presence of the Lord, allowing Him to speak to you personally and transform you, and strengthen you.

Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings 11 about how God always keeps His Plan. Although Athaliah "proceeded to destroy the whole royal family" (v.1b), God surprises. Joash was hidden and protected by by Jehoiada the priest. God provided the right people around Joash as his reign began at the age of 7. God did not leave Joash and He will not leave us. Are we ready to surrender? Are we serious about committing to God? Or still thrashing around?

(Our apologies, audio download is not available.) Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings 10. In this chapter we see Jehu killing the descendants of Ahab and the worshipers of Baal, fulfilling Elijah's prophecy. The judgment came upon the family of Ahab for their wickedness. What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? Follow the Lord and leave a Godly legacy.

In this study, Pastor Rod teaches in the book of Revelation on the church of Pergamun and what Jesus had to say about them. Although they were strong in their faith and did not deny Christ, despite the many trials and persecutions, they still held the practices of Balaam, sacrifices to idols, and practices of sexual immorality, which led to many compromises in their walk with Jesus. As believers we aren't perfect, but allowing God through His word to correct our errors, show us the blind spots in our walk, and lead us into repentance is essential to our growth as Christians.

Pastor Rod teaches in 2 Kings. In this story, we see the death of Jezebel, which was a fulfillment of Elijah's prophecy. Before Jezebel was put to death, she put makeup on. She wanted to look good on the outside, but inside she was wicked. Let us not be focused only on our outward appearance. Let us focus more on our inner character.
