The God We Serve is Able - and He Will
with Jim Henry
August 19-21, 2019Closed
We live in a world that is increasingly fearful, agnostic and deceived by false religions. There is a growing push to accommodate sinfulness and ignore—or even attack—God and His standards. Yet God calls believers to live in hope. He has given us the compass to confidently navigate in the present, assured of His ultimate victory.
Come explore the book of Daniel, which moves from the practical to profound mystery and gives us a panoramic view of Israel, the Gentiles, history, and eternity. Daniel—one of few people the Bible describes in a totally favorable light—exemplifies how to live a transformed life in a lost culture. This great man also gives us a remarkable revelation that demonstrates the reality that God has the final word for today and the future. He shapes people, nations, places, and events to bring about his unshakeable kingdom, a truth that even the pagan king Darius declared, “For He is the living God, and He endures forever; His kingdom will never be destroyed” [6:26, HCSB].
Get equipped and empowered to live with integrity, not compromise, and to choose wisely under pressure. Recognize your opportunity to wield enormous positive spiritual influence even in a minority status. Stand strong in the present and the future because of prophetic promises that remind you of the ultimate victory of your sovereign, all-powerful God—who is able.
