Scripture AT SUNSET 10.12.2020

 “By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.” -Hebrews 11:5-6

A life of faith is a consistent, daily, moment-by-moment walk with Jesus Christ. If you don’t have faith, there is no chance you can please God.

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 11:5-6 – “Walking with God“)


Scripture AT SUNRISE 10.5.2020

“By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.” -Hebrews 11:4

Abel’s life still speaks. What about your life? When you’ve passed from this world, will your life still speak to those who knew you?

-Pastor Steve Wainright (excerpts from Sunday Morning Sermon from Hebrews 11:4 – “The Faith of Abel“)

“But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.” -Hebrews 2:9

If you neglect the great salvation that is in Christ Jesus, you have no hope.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.1.2019

“So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there. Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.” -John 19:42-20:1

We left off in chapter 19 of John’s Gospel where death had come and we read of the burial of Christ. But as chapter 19 does not end the gospel, even so, death does not end eternal life! –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 3.20.2019

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” -1 Corinthians 15:17-20

Genesis ends with Joseph’s death. Deuteronomy ends with Moses’ death. Joshua ends with Joshua’s death. Gospels end with Jesus’ resurrection. And that changes everything. —Tony Merida

Scripture at Sunrise 10.31.2017

“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” -Psalm 118:17

A fair assurance this! It was no doubt based upon a promise, inwardly whispered in the psalmist’s heart, which he seized upon and enjoyed. Is my case like that of David? Am I depressed because the enemy affronts me? Are there multitudes against me and few on my side? Does unbelief bid me lie down and die in despair-a defeated, dishonored man? Do my enemies begin to dig my grave?

What then? Shall I yield to the whisper of fear, and give up the battle, and with it give up all hope? Far from it. There is life in me yet: “I shall not die.” Vigor will return and remove my weakness: “I shall live.” The Lord lives, and I shall live also. My mouth shall again be opened: “I shall declare the works of Jehovah.” Yes, and I shall speak of the present trouble as another instance of the wonder-working faithfulness and love of the Lord my God. Those who would gladly measure me for my coffin had better wait a bit, for “the Lord hath chastened me sore, but He hath not given me over unto death.” Glory be to His name forever! I am immortal till my work is done. Till the Lord wills it, no vault can close upon me.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.17.2017

Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.” -Romans 7:4
Christ died the death that the law demanded. By His death, we are dead to the law. We are saved and united to Christ to bring forth fruit for God. -excerpt from Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears My word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” -John 5:24

Jesus is the Lord of life and judgment. A person’s relationship to Jesus determines whether they live or die. God gives life in His Son.

Sunday Morning Sermon Audio – Overabounding Grace | Romans 5:12-21 (Steve Wainright)
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 5:20-21

The law causes sin to increase. The law cannot change a person’s heart. The law shines the light on your disobedience. Sin might bring pleasure for a season, but what sin is actually doing is working death in you.
The grace of God is greater than all our sin. Where sin was overflowing, grace overflowed exceedingly above and beyond. If you believe He died for your sins, there should be nothing in your past that can haunt you. It’s not about where you’ve been, but where you’re at.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.23.2013

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; he that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. -Revelation 2:11

The first death we must endure unless the Lord should suddenly come to His temple. For this let us abide in readiness, awaiting it without fear, since Jesus has transformed death from a dreary cavern into a passage leading to glory.

The thing to be feared is not the first but the second death, not the parting of the soul from the body but the final separation of the entire man from God. This is death indeed. This death kills all peace, joy, happiness, hope. When God is gone, all is gone. Such a death is far worse than ceasing to be: it is existence without the life which makes existence worth the having.

Now, if by God’s grace we fight on to the end and conquer in the glorious war, no second death can lay its chill finger upon us, We shall have no fear of death and hell, for we shall receive a crown of life which fadeth not away. How this nerves us for the fight! Eternal life is worth a life’s battle. To escape the hurt of the second death is a thing worth struggling for throughout a lifetime.

Lord, give us faith so that we may overcome, and then grant us grace to remain unharmed though sin and Satan dog our heels!
