What Happens at the End? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever played the “Would you rather...” game? It’s where you’re given two less than appealing situations and pick which you’d rather experience. For example, would you rather walk over hot coals or stand on a fire ant mound for 10 minutes? Usually neither option sounds inviting.

In Daniel 11 we learn about some ugly end of time details that ultimately describe genocide against Christians. In this message Pete Briscoe teaches about this extraordinary and terrifying future event and why you can be confident about the glorious outcome for believers who persevere.

Scripture: Daniel 11:36 - 12:4

This Is Our Future

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

There’s often debate about whether to read Scripture as literal or symbolic. In Daniel 11, we don’t have to debate because all that was predicted 367 years before it happened in the Middle East and northern Africa came true with amazing accuracy. But it doesn’t end there. The chapter continues to predict events that have yet to take place—horrific events against Christians that will usher in a terrible season of persecution. This is our future, and we can bank on it happening just as it’s described.

In this message Pete Briscoe shares troubling news of events yet to happen but also shows us why we can put our fears aside—even when clouds of persecution overshadow Christians throughout the world.

Scripture: Daniel 11:1 - 11:35

God Will Keep His Promise

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever been promised something that seemed too good to be true? As we struggle through trials we can lose sight of God’s future promise that someday believers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

In this message Pete Briscoe helps us understand what we’ve been invited to when we say “yes” to Jesus. Being a child of God doesn’t guarantee us a ride on “easy street,” but we have reason to be encouraged that the tough ride will be well worth it in the end.

Scripture: Daniel 8

Enduring Persecution

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Do you wonder why persecution against Christians seems to be growing? Do you wonder if the antichrist might be in the world right now?

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7:15-28 where we get a glimpse of what eternity will be like and why God's promise that His people will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven should give us strength to endure persecution.

Scripture: Daniel 7:15 - 7:28

Hanging in There

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

As Christians, we have God's Word to tell us how the game of life ends. Yet, even though we cling to His truth, we can find ourselves preoccupied with the enemy's short-term victories and temporary advances in the world.

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7 to help us through the struggle of trying to understand God's eternal plan and how to persevere until He decides to end the game of life.

Setting Out to Shake the World

Jill Briscoe

Series: Shaking Up Your World

Paul had a heart as big as the world, a vision as high as the sky, and a life that marches down the stairway of time into our little lives—enlarging them forever. He was a mover and a shaker—a “world shaker.” From this point on in the narrative, Paul would be in prison and bondage until the end of his course on earth.

Stuart Briscoe

Series: When Will Christ Return?

When Jesus laid aside His glory at the first Advent, He relinquished omniscience. So He could not tell the disciples when He would return. He didn’t know! But He knew He would return. He knew the “would” but not the “when.” We are in an identical situation.

The Minute Trap

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

Have you planned your funeral? Few of us have. We like to think of death as something far off in the future. Then once we do acknowledge death, sometimes we fall into "You Only Live Once" thinking and fill our time with whatever pleases us. But God never promised us a long life! He has our days numbered, and only He knows when that number is up and we'll be called to be with Him.

In this message, Jill Briscoe cautions us to avoid the "Minute Trap" and offers us a better perspective on what this life really is and how we should use the time God has given us.

The Mouth Trap

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

We've all been on both sides of hurtful words. We've insulted and been insulted, gossiped and been gossiped about. We've spoken words that have been obscene, profane, idle, or unkind. It's no wonder the Bible is full of references to the tongue—so much destruction and yet so much encouragement, all from one little member of the body! 

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives us an acrostic of "tongue" with examples of the tongue's destructive characteristics, as well as their opposites, so we can avoid the "Mouth Trap."

The Money Trap

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

We live in a culture that encourages greed. We feel the need to "keep up with the Joneses" and own things that we don't necessarily want or need. We are lured in by the "greed cheese" that Satan puts in the "Money Trap." But everything we have isn't even ours—it all belongs to God, and He entrusts us with what He knows we can handle. 

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches about the role money should play in our lives and gives us practical and challenging advice on how we should view and be good stewards of money.

The Me Trap, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

When little troubles appear in our lives, we can be surprised and wonder why God would allow such things to happen to us. Such thinking reveals that we may have fallen into the "Me Trap": Satan tempts us with "easy cheese" promising an easy life. But God never promised that life would be comfortable! 

In this message, Jill Briscoe shows us how the troubles and pain in our lives are actually a way God molds us into Christ-like people.

How Should I Handle Temptation? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Triumph Over Temptation

How do you handle temptation? Do you just give in, shrug your shoulders, and say it's just the way you are? Do you give in and blame Satan? Or do you rely on God and in His power resist the temptation? 

Every temptation that comes our way is an opportunity to go wrong, but it is also an opportunity to do right, and Scripture tells us that God will never allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. In this message, Stuart Briscoe helps us understand what temptation is and where it comes from, and he encourages us to find opportunities to do right when we’re tempted to go wrong.

Getting Off the Roof, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Triumph Over Temptation

Giant Temptation comes to all of us. All of us know him. He knows us—he knows when our guard is up, and he knows when we’re feeling lazy. It’s in our times of laziness that we’re faced with temptations that we’re not prepared for, and we, like David, have to choose whether to go along with the giant of temptation or to get off the rooftop. 

Have you experienced a time when you've failed to overcome a temptation? Jill Briscoe shows us that the value of David's life story is not only that it shows man's great sin, but that it shows God's even greater forgiveness and grace.

Trials and Temptations, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Triumph Over Temptation

Trials and temptations are the inevitable lot of fallen people who live in a fallen world. God does not send them, but He does permit them. Provided we handle them correctly, they serve to help us mature. But when mishandled, they can lead to great harm. The Children of Israel were a great example of this.

You Are God's Ambassador, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

As Christians, we know the Gospel message by heart, but when it comes to sharing it with others, we panic. We avoid sharing it because we tell ourselves we're not gifted or articulate enough. The truth is if we're in Christ, we are His ambassadors sent to share the good news with everyone.

Will you accept your identity as a carrier of the world's greatest message?

Series: Identity Defined

How would you describe your relationship to the church? Are you engaged in the church, or have you distanced yourself and feel disconnected? For various reasons, it's sometimes easy for us to drift away from the church and isolate ourselves. But God's desire is to build a vibrant, interconnected, and beautiful church—and He wants you to be a part of it!

You Are God's Agent

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

Suffering is inevitable, but when it comes, do you protest and ask, "How could God let this happen to me?" What if, instead of protesting, we embraced suffering? The concept is countercultural, but a powerful thing happens when we embrace suffering—Christ is revealed through us.

How will Christ express Himself as you resist the desire to run from suffering and embrace your difficult circumstance?

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:5 - 4:12

You Are a Living Saint

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

We tend to believe we're "sinners saved by grace." While it's true that we are born sinners, we're in error if, as Christians, we continue to claim that identity. Falsely believing we're sinners, only leads to a cycle of sinful tendencies. Pete reminds us that in Christ, we are no longer sinners—we are saints!

Will you accept you're "a saint who sometimes sins," or will you continue to believe you're still just a sinner?

Blessed Are the Peacemakers, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Solid Ground

You can't be a peacemaker if you don't have peace with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. We've all heard this before, but do we really understand what that means and how to practice it in our lives? 

In this message, Jill Briscoe talks about the path to finding our peace with Jesus and making peace with others. It's an important topic—because we can't mend our marriages, settle family conflicts, or resolve issues with others if we don't truly understand what having peace means.

Peace, Joy, and Hope, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Perfect Peace

So often when we talk of peace, we think of it in terms of resolving a difficult situation. The biblical understanding of peace goes much deeper than that; and thankfully so, because the reality is that we’ll never be free from hostile environments and stressful situations.

The Apostle Paul knew that and wanted us to understand the unexplainable peace that is available to believers through Jesus.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Romans 5 to explain the blessing of peace for those justified by faith. A peace unrelated to our external circumstances but related to our internal relationship with our Creator.

Scripture: Romans 5:1 - 5:21

Pete Briscoe

Do you think that God's forgiveness is a matter of apologizing to Him for your sins? Or do you recognize that the blood of Jesus is what washes your sin away? Do you understand the important difference?

In this message, Pete Briscoe compares the "apology economy" with the "blood economy" and focuses on where forgiveness is found.

Freedom from Guilt and Shame

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Is there sin in your past that keeps you from being intimate with God? You know you're forgiven, but your little inner judge keeps bringing your sin to mind. Yes, God hard-wired you with a conscience, but not so you would be forever tormented by your sin. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about finding freedom from the guilt, shame, and embarrassment that comes from sin. 

Scripture: Hebrews 9:1 - 9:14

Intimately Loved and Indisputably Forgiven

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Have you ever wondered why God made a new covenant? It's hard to imagine there was something wrong with the first covenant, because He made it. But in Jeremiah, we read that God found fault with the people. Despite His tender love for them, the people were incapable of living obediently to the law. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows how the age of law has passed and the age of the Son is here to stay. And with the new covenant, Jesus promises that through Him we are never led astray, we are intimately loved, and we are indisputably forgiven. 

Scripture: Hebrews 8:1 - 8:13 , Jeremiah 31:31 - 31:34

Is God Really Committed to Me?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Have you ever been gripped by fear and wondered if God could ever change His mind about you? In our world, people change their minds all the time, and the consequences are often catastrophic—abandoned marriages, broken hearts, and destroyed finances. So what if God changed His mind and broke His promise about Jesus being the only way to the Father? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe takes a detailed look at the ultimate promise of God woven through His Word in the Bible. 

Scripture: Hebrews 7:11 - 7:28

The Law Isn’t So Great

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

The apostle Paul loves to play the "greater than game" in the book of Hebrews, and he does it skillfully. It's a wonderful way to argue, because once he's established that something is greater, then everything downstream from that thing is greater as well!

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about how Paul uses the "greater than" approach to successfully tackle an equation that is of utmost importance to every believer. The equation of Law versus Jesus.

Scripture: Hebrews 6:19 - 7:10

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Have you ever witnessed someone who seemed solid in his faith turn and walk away from it? Such an action can leave you nervously wondering, "If he wasn't saved, how do I know I am? How do I know my salvation is secure?" 

Pete Briscoe points to Hebrews 6:13-20 to give you the answer as to why you can, and should, have full assurance of your salvation. 

Scripture: Hebrews 6:13 - 6:20

The Promise of Rest

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Wouldn't it be great if we could stay at rest even when conflict, stress, and trials push in on us? The Lord made a promise that we could enter His rest and that promise still stands today. Can you abandon your desire to strive in your own strength and find rest in His hands? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the promise of rest available to all believers.

Have you tried to carry all of your groceries into the house in one trip so you didn't have to go back out to the car? Your arms are aching, the bags are pinching your fingers, and the food is beginning to slide out. But you keep moving, hoping to get everything into the kitchen before the bags break! 

Now imagine that someone in your family came out as you were unloading your bags and offered to carry them so you could sit down to rest. You probably wouldn't turn them down! Well, Jesus has made this offer—He wants to carry our burdens. We just need to say yes. 

In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus says:  "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Rest Stops, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

One of the best known passages in the Bible is Psalm 23. It describes the relationship between a shepherd and His flock, in which He guides them through pastures, hills and dark valleys. In every case, the sheep are content because the shepherd is there, offering protection and comfort. We are the sheep in this story! 

Jill teaches that no matter what is happening in our lives, good or bad, the only way we can find true contentment—and even joy—in every situation is by trusting in the Lord, our shepherd, who promises to never leave us.

John Bunyan's famous allegory, "Pilgrim's Progress," described the journey of the believer from the "slough of despond" to "the celestial city." In less picturesque terms, Paul did the same for the Colossians. We, too, need to know how to get there from here. 

Scripture: Colossians 1:21 - 1:29

One Flesh, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Secrets to a Successful Marriage

Our culture tells us that sexual satisfaction is found not with your spouse, but out there with someone else—anyone else. The worldly message is that life with just one person is boring and predictable. But God created sex and He had something much more wonderful in mind. God meant for sex to be between husband and wife, and He meant for it to be amazing.

In this message, Pete helps us understand what God has planned for us.

Becoming a Spirit-Led Spouse, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Secrets to a Successful Marriage

"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love." (Galatians 5:13)

What's the key to a great marriage? It's something soon-to-be-married couples ask all the time! The answer: two people walking in the Spirit, loving one another. Put another way, you can choose to serve yourself (flesh) or serve your spouse, empowered by the Spirit! Your choice determines what kind of marriage you'll have.

In this teaching, Pete addresses three questions:

- How do I know when I’m in the flesh or in the Spirit?

- How do I avoid the flesh?

- How can I get into the Spirit?

Scripture: Galatians 5:13

How to Share Your Hurts

Pete Briscoe

Series: Secrets to a Successful Marriage

Explosive arguments can hurt a marriage, but silence can destroy a relationship, too. When spouses keep unresolved issues to themselves, it's like filling a gunnysack. The more hurts are stuffed into it, the heavier it gets. And then one day it bursts open, and every past frustration pours out all at once.

Has that happened to you? Has some inconsequential argument turned into a raging fight because your gunnysack finally burst? In this message, Pete Briscoe turns to Scripture to describe how you can productively unpack your gunnysack and strengthen your marriage.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:4 - 13:11 , Ephesians 4:25 - 4:26
