Unity

Satan achieves his purposes by creating division amongst believers and splitting the body of Christ. But God desires unity in the body, and we, as Christians, need to desire the same thing.

Hold No Bitterness

We are to hold no bitterness in our hearts towards anyone. To hold on to bitterness not only binds us and prevents God’s healing power from flowing through us; it also binds the ones we feel bitter towards.

God Is For Us

We need a better understanding of who God is. The thing that divides us most is that we don’t really know God, and yet we impose our flawed thinking on others.

The Kingdom: Living Together

True Christians make up a shrinking minority in this country. The only way we’re going to stay alive and active in the future is to put into practice the Word of God and live in community with each other — koinonia.

Congress of the Holy Spirit

Jamie talks about the Good Samaritan, “shadow ministries,” and the way that signs and wonders follow our ministry.

Restoration of Praise

God is restoring the spirit of praise and worship among His people. Our purpose on earth is to give praise to God – and praise is always vocal. “With my mouth I will make known thy faithfulness.”

Good Friday Service

In this Good Friday service, Jamie discusses the fruit of the Spirit and how they are to be understood as a whole, not separated into individual components.

Unhewed Stones

The Bible is given to us not as a book of rules — we can’t keep the rules. But it is given to us to reveal the nature and character of God.

Concepts of Covenant

Jamie discusses the concept of the salt covenant and how it relates to marriage in the Scriptures.

What is Holiness?

Jamie asks, What is holiness? How are we as Christians set apart from the world? What is it that makes us different?

Genuine Christianity

Jamie tells the story of finding an old wrench in the desert and cleaning it up. Like that rusted wrench, God will take you off the junk pile, clean you up, and turn you into the person He always intended you to be.

Stand Aside and Let God Work

Jamie recounts how God told him that if he would just get out of the way, He would work. Preaching doesn’t change lives, nor does worship. What changes lives is acknowledging that Jesus is Lord and allowing His Holy Spirit to move.

Rejoice in Your Weakness

Jamie explains how God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. He points out that Sampson, the Old Testament hero, didn’t get his strength from his hair but from God. We must exchange our human strength for dependence on the Lord.

The Call of God

At the 1985 CBU National Leadership Conference, Jamie talks about the call of God. There is a difference between what we are called to do and what we are gifted to do, Jamie says. Our call is to be men and women of God and to obey God’s direction for our lives.

Reflect His Glory

The mission of the church, Jamie says, is to love God, enjoy Him forever, hear what He is saying, and do what He is doing. We are to be a reflection of God and His glory.

Closing the Door

Two things are necessary for a bush to burn in your life, as it did for Moses. First, you must have an open door to the future God has for you; and second, you must close the door to your past. Don’t allow past experiences to hinder you from hearing God and moving forward into the life He has prepared.

A Burning Bush

Discovering the burning bush was a life-changing event for Moses. He was able to hear God for two reasons: He had an open door the the future, and he had closed the door to his past. God loves you and has a plan and purpose for you, just as He did for Moses. Will you hear Him when He speaks?

Easter Is Now

The resurrection is at the heart of every teaching in the New Testament. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life.” In this Easter message, Jamie explains how the resurrection addresses our every need.

What About “Judge Not”?

As the church, we should not be afraid to speak boldly; but if we are to call others out, can we do it without being intimidating? Can we do it with pure motives? Are we willing to examine our own lives before judging others?

When Your Rope Breaks

How should we respond to seemingly impossible circumstances in our lives? Jamie addresses this question by looking at the example of Gideon, whom God used mightily in what seemed to be an impossible situation.

Reigning on Earth

Jamie discusses three things we should know about Jesus: First, Jesus was not successful by today’s standards; second, Jesus never intended to build an earthly kingdom; and third, Jesus’ commission to “go” still stands today.

What Kind of God?

Speaking to a group of thousands of young people gathered in Orlando, Jamie states that the question for most non-believers is not, “Is there a God?” Rather, it’s “What kind of God is He?” and “Does He really care for us?”

Stamped Positive

All of us have been born into sin, but Jesus came to redeem us and restore us to the people God intended us to be from the very beginning.

Cardinal Sins of the Church

Jamie lists a number of pastoral mistakes he made as a church leader during a period in the late 1980s, when the Tabernacle Church was undergoing changes. The lessons and principles he discusses can apply to any leadership position.

On the Move Again

God is preparing His church for the next move of God. We must be ready and willing to move at a moment’s notice, like the children of Israel following the cloud in the desert. When and where God moves, we must go, as well.

Jesus Is Lord

We must always allow the Holy Spirit to enlighten us individually and not take our beliefs from an institution only. We must be wary of anything that tries to pull us away from the Lordship of Jesus.

Accepted by God

We are to always remember three things: I am deeply loved by God; I am fully accepted by Him; and I am made righteous through Jesus.

Leadership Conference

Jamie discusses his understanding of who a leader is and what a leader’s role in the body of Christ should be. He also talks about the role of the “home church.”

A Word to Church Leaders

Jamie speaks to a group of church leaders in London, England, about the need for transparency among those who lead. He encourages all of us to raise our sails and go where the Spirit is going.

Following the Holy Spirit

Jesus left us with two things: the pure Word of God and the gift of His Holy Spirit. God can be trusted — He gave us the best gift possible.

God’s Ways Are Good Ways

Our human nature wants to have things our own way. As a result, Jamie explains in this Christmas message, we are blinded to the abundant life God wants for us. If we will turn and flow with Him, however, He will bring HIs divine purpose for us to pass.  Only His way — not ours — is good.

Promises with Conditions

Referencing Joshua and the children of Israel, Jamie explains that all of God’s promises come with conditions. For instance, the promise that we will prosper and overcome our enemies is ours only if we walk in obedience to God. God wants to bless us, but first we must obey His Word.

A Hope in the Lord

In this Christmas message, Jamie talks about the dreams of mankind and how they came to pass when Jesus came to Earth — not as a warrior but as a humble child, so that we could have our fellowship with God restored.

Unity in the Spirit

Using the text from Acts 1 and 2, Jamie talks about the need for unity in the body of Christ — as the early church was in unity — if we are to expect a move of the Holy Spirit in our midst. Churches must be willing to overlook minor differences and come together as one.

The Shalom of God

When the peace of the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you can expect five changes in your life, Jamie explains. These changes bring with them the desire for excellence, unity, grace, discipline, and contentment.

A Ring for Your Finger

From the parable of the prodigal son, Jamie draws lessons on God’s forgiveness. God has a special place in His heart for those who have “thrown it all away.” He is ready and eagerly waiting for our return.

Do the Simple Things First

Sometimes we just need to go back to the fundamentals! Jamie talks about his experience as a novice skier to illustrate why we must have a clear grasp of the fundamentals of truth before we can expect to move up to the higher mountains God has prepared for us.

Sunday Morning Teaching

We all go through times of trouble — pits in our lives. Jamie explains that God has a purpose for each of us, and the pits and struggles we experience are designed to help reveal that good purpose.

Letting Your Dreams Come to Pass

Jamie talks about how we should let the dreams of our heart from long ago be released, in order for God to work in us today. We must pray for God to give us courage and strength to do whatever He has called us to do.

Prophecy for the 1980s

Speaking near the end of 1979, Jamie discusses prophetically what may be ahead for Christian Believers United conferences and the charismatic movement in general in the decade to follow — the 1980s — and lists three things he believes God is calling believers to do.

Growth and Maturity

Jamie explains how we, the body of Christ, are to be growing and maturing day by day.

Be Not Deceived

Jamie lists several ways to avoid deception, discern truth, and test prophetic words. He sounds a warning against false prophets.

Hearing God

Jamie states that the task of a preacher is not to bring people to God, but to bring God to the people. He discusses the importance of being quiet before the Lord, along with other principles for accurately hearing God.

Five Questions

Jamie asks five questions that help disclose the true nature of our walk with God.

Planted Seeds

Jamie compares our life in Christ to that of a seed that has been planted. It grows slowly, often underground without anyone seeing progress, until the time God determines we are to sprout and bring forth fruit.

Rejoice in Your Weakness

In our weakness, God’s strength is made perfect. Using the example of Sampson, Jamie points out that Sampson’s strength did not come from his hair but from God. We must exchange our human strength for dependence on God.

God’s Note

God honors our worship and He honors the fact that we honor Him. Let everything and everyone that has breath praise the Lord.

Live or Die for the Glory of God

There is a place in the Christian community for the dreamer. What dream has God placed in your heart? Don’t put it aside. Trust God.

Love Your Neighbor

The reason many of us can’t love our neighbor is we don’t love ourselves. We are not comfortable with who God made us to be.

Christmas Program

Whenever Satan attacks you can be certain God has a great wonderful plan already underway for you and for the people around you.

Dreams – The Counselor of God

The secret to hearing God comes from living in accordance to the Spirit and being governed by Him and not by our sinful nature.

Ready to Live

The dying process is a part of living out our life for God. Let’s spend less time being concerned about things that really don’t matter to God.

Restoring God’s Way

In this world of sin and corruption we have got to stick together. Isaiah said, though we walk through the fire the flames will not touch us.

The Wells of Your Life

God is not looking for people who go around with their cups outstretched waiting for the next rains to fall. God wants a people who have a well of living water within them and can draw strength from his indwelling Holy Spirit on a daily basis.

How to Have Faith

If we are going to understand how to have faith, we must understand what the word of God is. How do you receive faith? You receive it by hearing the word of God — both the Rhema word and the Logos word of God.

The Drum Major Instinct

It seems we are all seeking attention. So many of us revel in past accomplishments in our endless search for recognition. Yet, as Christians we are already declared righteous. To God we have great value, regardless if people see it or not. People will always let you down. Look only to God for approval because His opinion is all that matters.

Acts Chapter 4

Only the person who is prayed-up can hear correctly from God. If we want miracles in our lives, we need to be in touch with God on a minute-by-minute basis. Only then will we be able to know God’s heart and be able to pray as God directs us to pray. The only thing that is really important is the kingdom of God, and God is in charge of his kingdom. God desires a relationship with us, one that is open and honest and lasting.

Living by God’s Life

Jesus stands for us in the judgement court so we do not have to be called before the judge. He is our righteousness and our deliverer. He is our healer and our advocate. He has taken our place and secured our freedom from sin and death.

The Sower

Good soil must be prepared. Soil isn’t ready for sowing until it has been thoroughly plowed under and turned over. Show me a Christian who has been plowed, crushed, and broken by the circumstances of life, who has learned to cling to Christ and trust the Holy Spirit in difficult times, and I will show you a person whose soil is prepared and fertile. When the seed falls upon it, it will take root, blossom, and grow.

Becoming a Person of God

If we are going to become men and women of God, a separation from the world is necessary. What that looks like will be different for each of us, depending on our mission and our personal strengths and weaknesses. But some things are the same for us all. For example, we can’t walk with one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom.

Back to the Garden

The ultimate goal of all our Christian growth—our diligent Bible studies, our prayer and fasting, our relationships and fellowships—is that we enter into a very deep, personal, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Famine in the Land of Promise

What do you do when you discover famine in your land of promise? Do you trust God and wait on Him, or do you leave for what, in appearance at least, is greener pasture? Let me assure you: once you get to where you’re going, you’ll quickly find that things aren’t nearly as green as you thought.

Jamie Buckingham Testimony

Jamie Shares his testimony to a group of believers at a Melbourne, FL, chapter of the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Association.

Flying on Course

We need to be familiar with the language God uses, and learn to recognize His voice; otherwise, we won’t be able to respond to Him when He calls. We must know how to tune out other sounds. If we are distracted by all the background noise or the chattering of other pilots, we will have a hard time hearing what He wants use to do next.

Easter Sunday Service

Jesus always initiates the relationship. He comes to us, just as He came to the men on the Emmaus road. But so often our eyes are blinded because we are looking in the wrong direction—away from Jerusalem and the empty tomb. We allow discouragement and despair, instead of the promises of God, to determine our direction.

Wholly Following the Lord

This is the story of Caleb and his lifelong desire to follow the Lord, no matter how difficult the battles that lay ahead.

They Shall Run and Not Be Weary

Weariness is one of the main problems that plague God’s people. But don’t give up. God will give you strength to do what He calls you to do.

JB on the Holy Spirit

God wants to manifest Himself to us. He wants to show is His presence and power in ways that defy logical explanation.

High Calling

This is the story of Ruth and Boaz and Boaz’s gift of mercy. Like Ruth, we all have people who have helped us along the way.

Jeremiah 18

Jeremiah was led by God to a potter’s house. There he learned important lessons on how God deals with us, teaches us, and molds us.

Creative Worship

It is time for the church of today to break through and move into new dimensions of worship. True worship will lead you into a true relationship with God. Pure worship is when everyone has their eyes on God. Not a pastor or a band. But only on God.

A Letter from God

God has an answer for every question you might have. It may come from the Bible. Tt may come from the godly counsel of others. He may whisper it into your spirit or write it on your heart. But God will answer. All you need to do is open the lines of communication with Him, and just ask. He will speak to you.

Live Life to the Fullest

Jesus said He came so we can have life to the fullest. He is talking about the restoration of that life which was ours originally but was stolen by Satan. It all boils down to our having authority, through Jesus Christ, over Satan.

The Land that has no Paths

There is no map or chart for any of us to follow in this life. It is like a land with no paths. All we have is God’s word and his presence. That’s the only chart we have. If we will put our hand in the hand of Jesus, he will walk with us, step by step, guiding us throughout our life.

Trusting God

How do you trust God? You start by listening and by clearing your mind of previous ideas. Jamie then goes into four specific things he has learned about trusting God and leaning not to his own understanding.

Unproductive Times

Jamie teaches on not becoming discouraged during the unproductive times or the fruitless seasons of our lives.

Finding Truth (with a Capitol T)

With Truth comes change and oftentimes it is too tough to receive. We tend to back away from Truth because we don’t want to change. Why? Because Truth calls for death to the old nature. Jesus said “I am the Truth.” If you know Truth, you will be changed. And that’s frightening for most people.

Our Absolute God

Jamie shares of his recent trip the White House and his belief that what is going on in the local church is so much more important than what is going on there. Establishing the Kingdom of God in our communities is far more important than dealing with high rollers who will be replaced after the next election.

Are You Serious About Jesus?

Jamie discusses the AIDS epidemic (from a 1986 perspective) and asks the question: How are we as Christians supposed to deal with it? He then moves into the aspect of the Church needing to unify. Only in unity can we successfully combat the schemes of the devil.

Crushed into Wine

Jamie talks abou the importance of unity in the body of Christ, especially when crisis comes.

How to Handle the Future

Unity in the body of Christ is vital for evangelizing the world. Teaching from John 17:20-23, Jamie impresses the importance of the body of Christ coming into a covenant relationship with one another as did the early churches in the New Testament.

Preparing His Bride

God is purposefully shaking His church in preparation for the end times. He is also bringing us into unity and giving his followers a safe harbor, and it’s all for His glory.

The Church in the Home

How do we as Christians know we are in togetherness? The fruit of our unity is being able to hear from God and act in agreement, following the spirit as God speaks, and staying attune to his every new direction.

Clay in the Potter’s Hands

Jamie teaches on being useable to God and being pliable as He molds and shapes us to be who He wants us to be in the Kingdom. “Being used by God means being willing to be changed by God, to progress and move with Him. The usable person is the one who is flexible.”

God’s Unusual People

Who does God use? God is not looking for perfect people. He is looking for yielded people to accomplish His desires and His will on this earth. Regardless of the vessel, God’s word will not return void or empty

High Calling — Vessels of Honor

God wants us to live a life of usefulness. We all have a dream that our life will count for something. A dream that we can do more than just merely exit. As Christians we have a high calling and we are to press on for whatever that may be, even to the point of suffering for Christ.

Talents

Our talents are given to us by God. He expects us to use these talents, invest them, multiple them, and in doing so he will rewards us. Not to use our talents, out of fear or for any other reason, will cause our Lord to be greatly displeased, even to the point of calling us wicked and lazy (Matt. 25:26)

What Are You Doing?

Jamie takes his teaching from Jesus’ parable in Luke 19 about the 10 minas. What are you doing with what God has given you? Are you putting your gifts to work for God or are you simply leaving them buried in the ground?

Who Does God Use?

God will use you in the service of his kingdom right where you are today. It doesn’t matter that you have never been used before. God will use you now, if you let him, if you are fully willing to be used by him. If you are not afraid but you are trusting. All you have to do is to present yourself usable, just the way you are

God in the Desert

Here are four things we should do when we find ourselves in a wilderness place in our lives.

The Ram’s Horn

There are 3 kinds of people who live in the desert: Dwellers (like the Bedouins), hermits (who purposely go there to stay), and pilgrims (who are just passing through). Following God in our wildernesses will always lead us to the Promised Land. But we must be willing to follow him. It’s part of the Christian life to go through wildernesses, not remain in them.

Worry and Anxiety

Jesus asks why we worry when He knows everything that is going on in our lives? Jamie compares worry to an alarm clock. We are to turn it off as soon as it alerts us to something. Then we are to release that situation to God. We are not to wallow in it any more than we are to listen to the alarm once awake.

The Cry of the Wild Goose

Jamie relates Kierkegaard’s story of barnyard geese and teaches on our need to be willing to have enough faith to leave the barnyard of tradition and fly with God, who has placed dreams of spiritual adventure in our hearts.

Combating Spiritual Burnout

If you are serious about Jesus, at some point you will come under attack from Satan. But remember, the battle is the Lord’s and it has been won. We are to stand firm in the faith and continue to do what God has called us to do. The Lord is our strength as spiritual forces fight on our behalf in the heavenlies.

Staff of Authority

Using Moses as his example, Jamie teaches on taking the staff of authority and how we must hear God on a daily bases and not rely solely on ancient traditions for our direction. The Holy Spirit empowers us to take spiritual authority over every area of our life and that authority begins with self-discipline and obedience to God.

Battle Strategy

Jamie uses King Jehoshaphat as an example for how we should prepare for spiritual warfare. He lists 8 specific ways to prepare for battle, and if we do them, we will never have to draw our sword. The battle will indeed be the Lord’s.

We Are Pilgrims (The Basics of Maturity)

Jamie discusses walking in spiritual maturity and that also means understanding we are just pilgrims on this earth. He lists four things that happen to Christians once we come to an understanding of this principle.

Affliction and Redemption

Jamie teaches on the story of Job and the dilemma we sometimes encounter when we know we serve a good and loving God, however, like in the case of Job, there are times when terrible things happen to us.

Don’t Waste Your Pain

Do you know that God has a purpose for your pain? He knows all of our troubles and He has a purpose for everything that happens to us. Trust God. He is at work in your life.

Paradoxes of Life

Have you ever set out to pray for something and the exact opposite happens instead? Jamie has 3 words for you: Don’t Give Up. Remember, God is on our side and He is watching over us. We just need to begin to look at all things through His eyes with eternity in mind. God desires that we see as He sees, understand as he understands, and to live by faith.

Despelling the Darkness

Jamie shares his experiences following his 9 days in the Indonesian and New Guinea jungles, imparting the Holy Spirit to this generation, all over the world.

Hungry for the Spirit (Fourteen Years )

Jamie shares his testimony 14 years after he was filled with the Holy Spirit and reveals that his spiritual life has been a continual quest to spiritual maturity. There is always more spiritually in store for us if we will only hunger for the things of God, hunger for His Holy Spirit. As we hunger God will continually fill us with his Spirit.

Pain: A Growth Indicator

The indicator of growth in the Christian is pain. The Christian is called by God to change from darkness into light and that change causes pain. Yet, our pain is not without purpose. We can never return to the darkness lest we forsake God forever.

Testimony

Jamie shares his personal testimony of how he was first filled with the Holy Spirit. This is the earliest known recording of his testimony.

Though He Slay Me

Here is the story of Job. Jamie teaches that despite how it seemed to Job, God never turned His back on him. He only removed His conscious presence for a time. Once God sets a person on a path, God may test that individual to see if he will continue to trust God or turn aside when times get hard.

Trials Produce Character

When rains fall into your life, rejoice. God has brought you to that place because he loves you. And remember, whom God loves he chastens, so all the ugliness can be gone and we are matured to have the character of Jesus, complete and not lacking anything.

Turning Back Your Enemy

Jamie shares about the recurrence of cancer in his body. Yet, he knows God has a plan for him, a triumphal procession, as Paul called it, for when things don’t go the way you wanted them to go, as was often the case with Paul.

Except the Lord Build

Psalm 127 shows us God’s perspective: Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. How much of what we do is in vain because it is done for the wrong motivations?

Really. Where is Your Trust?

When you place your trust in God alone, you will never be disappointed. God will not let you down. People on the other hand are not to be trusted. They are to be loved, but our trust is reserved for God.

Relinquishment of Control

There is something in each of us that says we can run our own life better than God can. Yet, the call of God to his people is the call of the shepherd to his sheep. We are to humble ourselves before him, go where he tells us to go, do what he tells us to do, and be who he tells us to be. Jamie also teaches on the purpose of giving and tithing.

Relinquishment of Control

There is something in each of us that says we can run our own life better than God can. Yet, the call of God to his people is the call of the shepherd to his sheep. We are to humble ourselves before him, go where he tells us to go, do what he tells us to do, and be who he tells us to be. Jamie also teaches on the purpose of giving and tithing.

Take the Offensive

This is Jamie’s last message before undergoing major surgery to remove his cancerous kidney. We must stay under God’s covering, he said, walk with Him in obedience. We are to resist the devil by taking the offensive, not allowing Satan to be the one to call the shots.

Supernatural People

As Christians we are a supernatural people. The problem is we still function on a natural level. We do things in the natural and only expect things to be done for us on the natural level. Which is why so many of our prayers go unanswered. God desires for us to see things and do things in the supernatural realm. He desires to answer our prayers and to bless us, supernaturally.

A God of History and Purpose

God’s plan is to fulfill biblical prophecy. When Israel became a nation in 1948 that was fulfilling prophecy and now millions of Jews live there. God also has a plan for each of us.

The Battle is the Lord’s

God continues to speak to His people today. He speaks not only through his written word but he also speaks to us through words of prophecy. And when God speaks, we need to listen and we need to obey.

New Dimensions

Real purpose in our lives and our church comes only when we know Jesus and follow Him only.

Fanning the Flame

Jesus takes the slightest spark of hope in your life and blows on it, gently. He looks into your life and He sees the spark each of us have. It may be covered up with guilt or sin, but there is a fire burning in the life of every single person. If you allow Him, Jesus will find that fire and blow His Holy Spirit upon it. And when He does it will burst into flame, all for His glory.

Restoration and Reconciliation

We often confuse reconciliation with being restored. In the case of our relationship with God there is restoration. And that is what will open the door for our reconciliation with others on a horizontal basis. Relationships that many of us think can never be healed can indeed be reconciled, healed, through Jesus.

Guides to Successful Living

Jamie speaks at the “Jesus ’79” gathering in Orlando, Fla. He discusses how to deal with feelings of rejection and how God desires to fulfill the dreams of our heart. “Whoever receives a call from God to high service,” he states, “must renounce whatever has formed him.”

Building Family

Jamies talks about building families and establishing a true community of God among believers

Closing

In his last message of the decade, Jamie leads the congregation in ten specific prayers of repentance. Repentance for the sin of unbelief, rebellion against God, sins of our attitudes, the flesh, dishonesty, greed and more.

Repentance

Repentance is how we return to God’s will and it is through repentance we strive for holiness. The word holy in the Bible means separated or different. It means to be set apart. God is calling us all to be set apart from the world, to be holy and you get there through repentance. You shut the door on the past and turn around. You say you will not be that kind of person anymore; you will not do those things anymore.

Surprised by Joy

In this Easter service message, Jamie teaches on the death and resurrection of Jesus. He shares about the significance of Mary anointing Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume the week before his crucifixion and how it was she who Jesus “surprised” along the pathway on the morning of his resurrection.

Eagles or Turkeys

The Bible states that we are righteous in the Lord Jesus. We are no longer bound by our old sin nature, and the Holy Spirit has come to convict us not of sin but of our righteousness. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.

Turkeys or Eagles

Jamie begins by asking several questions designed to determine who we are as Christians. He then tells his famous “Are you an Eagle or a Turkey?” story. He concludes by saying God wants four things for us: to be happy, healthy, prosperous and at peace. Despite being raised by “turkeys,” we are in fact eagles.

Spiritual Athletes

There is only one thing in this life that counts and that is the crown of glory, righteousness and life that God has been preparing for us. God is looking for a generation who will respond to His calling, people who are moving, not just standing in the way. God wants a people who are willing to sacrifice their life for His purposes and not just seek earthly riches, glory or fame.

Winners

Jamie teaches that if Christ came into this world for one thing it was to show us that in Him we are overcomers, winners, and we do not have to allow the world to fashion us into its mold.

Our Shalom

The term Shalom in Hebrew has multiple meanings. It means peace, well-being, safety and salvation. Jesus is our Shalom and through Him all obligations are complete.

Thanksgiving in the Pit

This is the story of Joseph son of Israel. Jamie teaches how we can be thankful even when bad things happen to us. Whether we are in the ‘pit of correction’ or in the ‘pit of curing’, the Lord our God is with us and he will not leave us alone as he shapes us and molds us to His image.

Together There is Strength

Jamie teaches on the age-old question, What is Sin? “Christians like to talk about forgiveness, but to understand true forgiveness we need to understand sin, otherwise we don’t know what we are being forgiven of, and the first thing sin produces is unbelief. At the very core of sin is a lack of faith. When Jesus came to the world He came to restore to us the ability to have faith and believe God.”

Victory over Sin

Jamie discusses 3 basic principles that will help us have victory over sin and achieve spiritual authority through Christ.

Drive with Delimiters

From the very foundation of the earth, God had a purpose for you. He created you in His image and not only did He create you but He continues to re-create you. Jesus wants to perfect that which is already in you even your most basic drives and desires. Let Him work and give God the glory in the re-creation process.

Stand Firm in the Midst of Adversity

All throughout the scriptures we read of God’s people facing adversities. But through tough times God wants his people to stand firm. God doesn’t intend for his people to be crushed by problems. So when you are hit by circumstances in life, remember God doesn’t intend for you to stay down, but through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can and will rise back up.

Standing Strong in Adversity

Jamie declares that even though tough times may come, the Christian is to stand firm, learning the secrets of being flexible as the winds of adversity blow, and always trust only God. In this tape he shares the story of his car exploding but miraculously no one was permanently injured.

The Inside of the Kingdom

Jamie looks closely at the godly lessons from the book of Haggai and comes away with three keys for dealing with adversity in the life of a Christian: 1) determine the spiritual force behind the adversity; 2) do we really want God in our life or are we just hoping for relief; and 3) if you want God, what are the keys to coming into His presence.

What to do in (Times of) a Crisis

Our lives are shaped by the traumatic things that happen to us and by our reaction to those situations. Jamie shares 5 keys to help get us through traumatic times, times of crisis, as we learn to handle the unfair experiences of life.

When God Withdraws

Taking lessons from the book of Haggai, Jamie discusses how we as Christians should respond when we find ourselves in times of adversity. He tells us to first determine if it is God or Satan causing the adversity. Then he cautions us to be very careful when blaming Satan for adversity in the life of a Christian because nothing happens to us unless it first flows through the loving hands of God.

The Patience of Daniel

God blesses those who are willing to wait for Him and not take matters into their own hands. How impatient we are to get ahead of God. Daniel waited before the Lord. He was a man of great patience and God blessed him for it. Patience before the Lord is not easy, but it reaps great rewards.

Waiting on the Lord

God holds the ends of all things in His hands because He is in control. All we need to do is wait on Him, patiently, all the while doing what He has given us to do. We don’t worry and we don’t try to control the future. We wait on the Lord and soon we will soar on wings like eagles.

Dealing with an Adversary

Do know of people who don’t like you? Who want to harm you? How do you deal with them? There are specific instructions in the scriptures that relate to this situation. And if you will do what God says you are to do, you will find yourself being blessed in the process.

Persecution is Normal for Every Christian Life (The Christian Life)

If you are living a life in Christ Jesus, you can expect persecution. In fact, the godlier you become the more persecution will come your way. How do you deal with it? Do you look at persecution as a tool God uses to grow you into the person He wants you to be? Or are you resentful and bitter? God has a higher calling for each of us and it’s through persecution and crisis that we grow into His higher calling.

Pushing Through

Too many Christians stop praying before the task is complete, often right before breakthrough arrives. But the scriptures instruct us to keep on praying, to be persistent, to not give up, and in the proper time we will reap a harvest.

Praise God in Tough Times

Evil can’t stand in the presence of praise, especially in the presence of children praising. That is one reason Jesus said we all should become like children. Little children aren’t worried about the trivial things adults worry about. They just praise God. And when we like children praise God, the very gates of hell begin to shudder and quiver.

Acquiring the Presence of God

Our purpose on earth is to love God, enjoy his presence and allow him to enjoy us. He wants a relationship with us. That is his great desire. All we need to do is recognize him and participate in the presence of God through our prayer life.

Activating Angels

Jamie teaches how our prayers are activating agents to enlist the angels to fight spiritual battles on our behalf. Prayer is the key to successful spiritual battles.

God Blesses Our Specific Prayer

Our specific prayers are often answered by God, not by God increasing our indulgences, but by Him reducing our neediness. God knows the intent of our heart. He knows if we are praying with a greedy heart or if we are really planning to follow through on our commitments to Him, to love Him and obey His commandments.

Helpless but not Hopeless

Christians need to stop being so critical of each other. They should instead do as the scriptures instruct and pray for their brothers and sisters in Christ.

How to Win Through Prayer

Just two weeks after receiving his diagnosis of inoperable cancer, Jamie discusses how his new found understanding of prayer has given him the strength he needed to get through that tough time.

Keys to Answered Prayer

Jamie reveals 10 keys to answered prayer taken from the story of Hannah and her prayer for a son, found in 1 Samuel chapter 1.

Psalm 37

Jamie teaches on Psalm 37 and how God gives us the desires of our heart

The Authority of Leadership

As Jamie prepares to ordain new elders, he teaches on the authority and responsibility of being a leader and minister in the Church.

The Servant

Being a servant is a calling for everyone who desires to be in leadership while in the service of the Lord

Navigating the Narrow Path

Jamie teaches on making certain our walk through this life is it not on the broad road that leads to destruction but on the narrow path the leads to the cross. And as we walk that narrow path are we bearing fruit or are we like the fig tree that only had leaves and which Jesus cursed?

The Lifestyle of Jesus

Jamie teaches on what the Bible clearly defines as the lifestyle of Jesus. How then should our lifestyle be, as the followers of Christ? How should we regard material things? How should we regard others?

A Holy Kiss

Jamie teaches on how God wants for us to love each other as brothers and sister in Christ.

Love or Pretense

What is love? Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved Him. Peter answered, three times, but used a different word for love than Jesus had used. Agape love verses phileo love. Our understanding of what love really is, isn’t always God’s definition.

Restoring Relationships

Jamie teaches from Malachi 2 and the importance of keeping our vows made before God and loving each other as God loves us, as Christ loves the Church. Love is not a feeling. Love is an act.

Full-Time Christian Service

God has called every believer into full-time Christian ministry. This does not necessarily mean we are to quit our jobs and go to the mission field. It does mean we are to be like Jesus everywhere we go throughout our normal lives.

Your Shadow Ministry

As you look back across your life you will likely recall people who have let their shadow fall on you. Because of them you are who you are today. As you use your giftings for the Lord’s service, your shadow is falling on untold numbers of others, and God is healing and blessing them, not because you have physically touched any of them, but because you are being obedient to Him.

Handling the Issue of Money

Jamie teaches on the topic of money and the Christian’s attitude toward giving. God is a giving God and He does not require anything of us in exchange for his gifts to us.

A Risky Walk

Jamie teaches on how God looks at the motives of our heart rather than our worldly successes

A Risky Walk

Jamie teaches on several spiritual truths including: (1) How a task is done is more important to God than whether it is completed or not. (2) To be kind is more important that being right. (3) It is possible to be supernaturally led by God and protected by God yet still miss His purpose for your life.

Lessons from the Ark

Jamie teaches on several lessons he had taken from the Ark of the Covenant and how we must not hold any other gods before the One True God, regardless of how sacred or personal that thing, or person, is to us.

Take Up Your Cross Daily

Jamie teaches on God’s blessing and our obedience to His call. We must lay everything on the altar, knowing the only way to receive God’s blessing is God’s way.

They Left Their Nets (Part 1)

We cannot bypass the foundational elements of what Jesus taught us simply because they seem hard. Jesus said we should love the Lord thy God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. We must have our feet planted on the rock of Jesus Christ and put into practice the words and commands He gave us.

They Left Their Nets (Part 2)

We cannot bypass the foundational elements of what Jesus taught us simply because they seem hard. Jesus said we should love the Lord thy God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. We must have our feet planted on the rock of Jesus Christ and put into practice the words and commands He gave us.

The Heavenly Perspective

Jamie teaches on the dangers of the occult. He tells that our guidance should come only from God through the Bible as interpreted by the Holy Spirit. Any other source of guidance like that found in horoscopes, astrology or witchcraft, is of the devil and must be left alone.

Airborne with God

All pilots know that it is the head winds that assist with a plane getting off the ground. The same applies in our spiritual lives. Often it is the contrary winds that lift us up off the ground and get us moving.

God is Shaking His Church

God wants us to be able to stand firm in times of adversity. He doesn’t want us to be crushed. And if we get knocked down He doesn’t intend for us to stay down. In the kingdom of God there is no such thing as a knockout blow. God’s people are always able to rise above adversity and the way we do it is by having the Holy Spirit inside of us.

Be Ready for the Holy Spirit to Move (Lengthen Your Stakes)

When you encounter the Holy Spirit, expect things to change, to flow, to move. The Holy Spirit is not placid. New wine, as it grows and ferments, is a violent experience. Place new wine in old wine skins, the Bible says, and you will have a disaster on your hands. The Holy Spirit cannot be placed into an old wine flask that can’t expand. It needs to be flexible and able to expand.

Entering the Land — Stir up the Gift

As Christians we are to be separate from the world. God has given us the Holy Spirit, yet we must, as Paul says in 2 Timothy, “stir up the gift” or “fan into flame” the gift of God, so we may be fulfilled and victorious in our daily walk with Him.

My Story

Jamie shares his testimony and how he first came to be filled with the Holy Spirit

New Wineskins

Jamie teaches that God is stretching His kingdom and He wants us, requires us, to be flexible enough to move with Him. He will not pour new wine into old wineskins. We must change and be filled with His Holy Spirit in order to move with God.

Pentecost Today

Jamie teaches on how we can receive the Holy Spirit. He tells the story of God’s plan, from the very beginning, that the Holy Spirit should come to earth, after the ascension of Jesus, and be available to all who believe.

Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Jamie shares his own personal experiences when he received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the first time while researching his first book, Run Baby Run, with Nicky Cruz, in New York and then later in Washington, D.C. in the late 1960s.

Talk About Tongues

God wants each of us to be empowered by the filling of his Holy Spirit, just as Jesus was. Jamie shares his testimony of his first experience with the Holy Spirit and the gift of tongues.

The Breath of God

God wants to bring us to the place where we no longer need to be dealt with roughly, but where he can deal with us through a gentle, inner spirit. Instead of moving us externally, he desires to move us from the inside.

The Dark Pit

Jamie discusses the need for ministers of God to be filled with the Holy Spirit at a Methodist minister’s conference at Lake Junaluska, N.C. He shares about his own difficulties attempting to serve God in his own strength, then how his life, and ministry, was radically changed once he came into the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit’s Work Today

Jamie teaches on the work of the Holy Spirit in the world today and how we will receive His power in times of trouble.

The Hope of Glory

How easy it would be for a church to become a trapping, to go off and do all the churchy things but not be filled with the Holy Spirit. God forbid we become like the Pharisees who did all the legal and lawful things but still failed to be true followers of the Lord because they refused to allow the Spirit of Jesus to lead them.

The Satisfying Spirit

For every person on earth God has a purpose. To each He has given specific gifts, and He wants to fulfill all those thing with His Holy Spirit. He wants that purpose fulfilled in each of us and for that to happen we need the presence of God working within us.

Going Home

God is saying something to us about where we are to establish our home. Home has a mystical meaning and as Christians we know this earth is not our real home. We are just passing though on our way to the courts of the Lord, to the place Jesus promised our real home awaits

God’s Love and Mercy

Jamie teaches on the lessons of Jonah and how God even uses calamities to teach us and bring us into the purpose he has intended for us.

Great Joy

Jamie teaches on joy in the kingdom of God using the vast differences of two kings of Judea, Ahaz and his son Hezekiah, as examples. Ahaz was evil and brought great destruction to the land while Hezekiah led the people back to the Lord and with that came great joy.

The Joy of Salvation

There won’t be any joy in our lives unless the originator of joy, the Holy Spirit, is living and functioning in us. Without the Joy of the Lord, all we do is present condemnation and self-righteousness to others. But a Spirit-filled person is an attractive person and people gravitate to them. It’s the joy-filled Christian that will attract people to Jesus and make them want to know Christ.

First-Hand Knowledge

Most of us only have knowledge of God by inference. We have second-hand information of God from something we have read or from what someone else has told us. But do you know God, really know Him? We can know God for ourselves. We don’t have to rely just on what others tell us. Jesus came that we might know God for ourselves, with first-hand knowledge.

To Know God

Just knowing about God is not important. Knowing God, however, is of utmost importance. How do you know Him? You spend time with him, you obey him, and you work to please him. Knowing God should be the most precious thing in your life.

Laughing at Life

Jamie gets personal with fellow pastors as well as with himself saying, “It’s time for Christians to come out of the closet and admit that we are just like everybody else and laugh at ourselves just a little bit.” Jamie’s stories are funny, but they make a point. Like the parables of Jesus, each story is with purpose, and a little bit of humor.

The Word of God in Your Heart

The Word of God comes to us in many ways. The Bible is the basis for His written word. However, we also know God speaks to us using the spoken word. Once a person commits his life to Jesus, God will fill him with His Holy Spirit and God’s word will flow from his heart.

God’s Provisioning

Man, by nature is a greedy creature. We want more stuff. But God has commanded us to be content with the things we have. And he has promised that He will never leave nor forsake us. He will supply all of our needs.

The Harvest is Ready

The harvest in the fields is ready and we should all be doing our part to bring in the harvest. God will direct us, as He sees fit, and it will look different from other harvesters. We should stop debating the theological finer points and get to work doing what God is commanding us to do.

Healing for Today

Healing is at the heart of what God wants to do for us today. Jesus manifested himself and made himself known by healing. There is healing in the cross of Jesus and God chooses to heal today.

Inner Healing

God wants us to be whole – not only physically whole but whole in our inner person, our mind and psychological self. We are not bound by our experiences or our ancestry. God can reach into our subconscious and heal our past hurts.

Summer of Miracles Scripture Companion (Part 1)

Jamie discusses healing from a Biblical perspective as he reads scriptures that focus on healing. As Jamie battled cancer he found healing in the Word of God. As you listen to these wonderful healing promises from the Bible, I pray you, too, will be free from fear and healed of all your disease.

Summer of Miracles Scripture Companion (Part 2)

Jamie discusses healing from a Biblical perspective as he reads scriptures that focus on healing. As Jamie battled cancer he found healing in the Word of God. As you listen to these wonderful healing promises from the Bible, I pray you, too, will be free from fear and healed of all your disease.

A Sound Mind

God intends for us to think clearly so when He speaks we will hear him and do as He instructs. We are to allow the Holy Spirit to renew our minds so we can be a whole person, free from past influences, and not mired down with garbage from the past.

At the Lord’s Command

God is trying to get through to each of us, to simply hear His voice, follow Him and do what He tells us to do. There are many things God wants us to do. He loves us and has a purpose for our lives. He has things for us to do, things that will bless us and prosper us if we will only hear His voice and follow Him.

Ears for God’s Messages

God expects the body of Christ to work together. We are to accept for ourselves messages from prophets, apostles, evangelists, preachers and teachers. Jamie concludes with three specific things God wants for each of us.

Hear the Voice of God (Jesus is that You?)

The Christian is dialed in to hear the voice of God. The problem is there is a lot of other noise out there and we can’t seem to tune it out. We must find ways to eliminate the extraneous noises of life so we can clearly hear the voice of the Lord.

Hearing God

We are different. And the thing that makes us different is we are tuned to a different Lord than the lord of this world. We listen to a different voice than that of the world. It is our task to hear God and obey Him, even if we appear out of step with the world around us.

Hearing God on Mt. Sinai

Jamie teaches on our need to hear God. How do we hear his voice? God will make his presence known to us if we will only stop, be still, and listen.

Listen to the Crickets

Jamie talks about how we need to be still and learn to listen for the voice of God. There is nothing more exciting than to hear God and act on what he is saying.

People Who Hear God

Our only task as a Christian is to hear God and to obey Him and sometimes all that means is to simply be available to, “keep the door open,” for His Holy Spirit to do His work.

Reflections

In one of his earliest recorded messages, Jamie shares about his recent walk in the woods where God spoke to him at a reflection pond, of the truth about a kernel of wheat falling to the ground and dying so it can produce greater fruit; of how we must also be like that seed in order to glorify God.

God’s Standard for Holiness

The foundation to holiness is getting rid of the ungodly things in your life. But that is just the start. The real aspect of holiness is adding to your life. Paul says we need to “put on the new self,” and live a holy life that is pleasing to God.

Living Life without Limits

Without the Spirit of God we limit ourselves. Jamie shares five things we can do to not be caught up in the world’s systems and to live a life in the Spirit of God, a life without limits.

Possessing the Land–Moving Toward the High Calling

Everyone who has been saved has been called. But the chosen are those who move beyond just being saved. They are moving toward their high calling in Christ Jesus. If you want to enter into the true abundance of a life in Christ, you must allow the fountain of life to flow through you to the world around you.

The High Calling

Jamie shares with multiple points, ways to claim the high calling of God. If you will put these things into practice you will walk away with your head high; depression will go, fear and anxiety will fall away, and you will know who you are in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Normal Christian Living

Jamie teaches that being a normal Christian looks to the world like you are being a radical, especially in the area of giving and sharing. Jamie states that good stewardship is taking care of what God has given you, but always under His direction.

The Person of God Our Father

Jamie teaches from his experiences with his own earthly father and relates how we, too, can have a close relationship with our heavenly Father. He goes on to teach that though we can be proud of our earthly heritage we can also be caught up in bondage to it. Instead, as Christians our new heritage is traced only to our Heavenly Father and we should be taking on His characteristics.

The Blessing of God

In this abbreviated tape, Jamie speaks about the meaning of the blessings of God.

God Erases Scars

We have a choice on what we fix our mind on. I can fix it on things that are wrong or I can fix it on things that are right. Why allow yourself to focus on the scars of your life when you have so many other areas of healings and good things God has done for you?

Good Will Come (Why Didn’t I?)

Using the story and example of Abigail from 1 Samuel, Jamie gives four specific spiritual truths that will help anyone who is having to live with bad decisions from our past. God will take our previously bad decisions and work them for our eventual good once we place our lives in His hands.

Remember, Repent, Rejoice

Jamie teaches that God wants you to remember what He has done for you. And as you remember, you will repent. You will repent of not believing and not trusting him. So remember His goodness. Remember how He has met you in every tough place in your life. He has never deserted you or let you down. No matter how tough the situation has been, He has been there before you. So rejoice. He is with you even now.

The Essentials (For Hearing God)

Jamie teaches on our need to obey the commands of God and how we must not rely on the fact we just go to church as our salvation, but we must go to God. Is it easier to listen to a man talk to us than it is to hear directly from God ourselves? We can listen to a preacher week after week and remain in disobedience to God. But when we approach God, directly, as He desires us to do, He will require obedience.

The Kingdom is Yours

Jamies teaches on the goodness of God and his purpose of us all to receive the Holy Spirit

Abiding in Love

Jamie speaks at New York’s Shea Stadium to a group gathered by Mike Evans of Bnai Yeshua. He asks us to ponder five key questions, the answers to which will tell us a great deal about who we are as Christians and where we stand spiritually.

God’s Love Letter

Over the course of history, God has communicated His love for us through a series of love letters. It all started before humans could even write, through the words of Moses, through Jesus on the cross and His sending the Holy Spirit. God has reached out to us again and again, crossing the barrier and bridging the chasm that separated us. The Bible is the record of God’s love letters to His people.

Good News

Jamie tells how God’s will for our lives is always good news for our walk with Him. He uses examples from the scripture indicating that what Jesus’ disciples often thought was bad news was actually very good news for the world.

Staying Under God’s Covering

This is the tale of two kings. One who listened to God and one who presumed God would continue to do what He has always done in the past and suffered the consequences. Jamie then lists three steps to take to return to the covering of God’s protection.

Flying Creatures

God says He carries us on eagles’ wings. He protects us. But he also grows us up and instructs us and often that can be a terrifying process. But we are always brought back to safety. God’s purpose for us is always better than anything we could have planned for ourselves.

Music Comes From Tension (Tension Produces Music)

Everything in the world operates under tension. All music grows out of tension. If there is too little or too much tension, there is disharmony. God knows our proper tuning point and if we are all tuned by the Master Tuner, we can be a marvelous symphony. Whom God loves He puts under tension.

Purpose

Nothing in the life of a Christian happens by chance. God is working and moving and doing things in our lives and through the things that affect our lives. God is working all the time to prepare us for his Son’s eventual return. The church is His bride and we are being prepared with purpose.

The Path to Glory

Regardless of where you are, God will meet you in the midst of your adversity because he has something for you. But if you remain determined to go your own way, he loves you enough to turn you loose. But God has a good path for each of us if we will only listen and obey. God wants to bless us if we will let him.

The Purpose of God

God wants our life to be a whole, full, happy, abundant life. And the only way that will happen is when we draw close to God. And to draw close to God means our lives must forever be changing to align with His will.

Delighting to Do His Will

Do we really delight to do God’s will or are we just doing our own thing and hoping it is God’s will? A godly man wants to know God’s will. He wants it above all else, even his own. A godly man will seek the will of God and he will desire it with all his heart.

Power in God’s Will

The will of God is really not something you do, it’s a state of being. When you are in the will of God then you do the will of God. You don’t just do it, you are it. When you are filled with the Holy Spirit you are in the will of God. You are filled with the will of God. You enter that marvelous kingdom called the will of God.

How to Win Over Fear

God realizes that we live in a world that is filled with fear. But he has given us a way to overcome that fear. And that is to combat the author of fear itself, Satan. We have the authority to rebuke Satan, and he will flee from us. And as he goes, so goes our fears.

Meeting God at Every Corner

Life is full of changes, corners to take, events to walk through. Yet, around every corner, God is there waiting for us. He is with us now and He is there ahead of us. We have nothing to fear, because He is always with us.

Released From Fear

Jamie, with the assistance of two of his grandchildren, demonstrates how Christians are to be child-like in our approach to God, and in doing so we can be fearless, because God is love and perfect love casts out fear.

Releasing Fear

All throughout the Bible God is telling his people to not be afraid. God wants to break the stronghold our fears have on us. He is calling to us to look to Jesus and to break the bondage fear has on our lives. Stop focusing on our problems and start looking to Jesus.

Homesick for God

Every Christian yearns for the courts of God, the things of God. Even though we have never been there, we are homesick for heaven because of our relationship with God the Father.

Unity in the Body

Jamie teaches on the importance of the fellowship of believers and keeping God first, ahead of our traditions.

Walk Together

Jamie teaches that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save the world. And as such, we need to follow his example and not condemn others. He then asks the question, so how should we treat people, especially other Christians, who we disagree with doctrinally? Should we and how do we maintain fellowship with them?

Our Mission to Kiss Frogs

Jamie teaches from Exodus 3 and Moses’ encounter with God through the burning bush. He discusses how the life of every Christian is ordered by God and that nothing happens to the follower of Christ that does not first pass through the hands of God. He concludes with the thought that we are God’s ambassadors, often appearing in the lives of others as a “burning bush,” speaking to them of God’s love.

Effective Editing

We can cut much from our lives but we can’t cut Jesus out and still live.

No Excuses

Jamie discusses the costs and sacrifices necessary to truly be a follower of Jesus. “God never works on changing our behavior,” Jamie says. “God works on changing our desires. And once our desires are changed, we will do what God wants us to do. That is why following Jesus is risky living.”

The Lordship of Jesus

When you decide to follow Jesus, you voluntarily surrender the right to choose or the power to vary the consequences. Salvation is obedience to Jesus but we cannot follow Jesus on our terms. We can only follow Him by being totally committed to Him and on His terms.

Yoked in Love

Jamie states that the task of God’s people is to point others to Jesus, not to teach them how to live. Teaching and correcting people is God’s task. Jamie then demonstrates what it means to be yoked with God. Jesus said we are to take his yoke upon us and learn from him (Matt. 11:29).

Failed But Not a Failure

Jamie teaches about Jesus’ disciple John Mark and how his early failures were forgiven as his life was transformed by God.

Forgiveness (Part 1)

God has called each of us for a divine purpose. It’s our reason for being alive. But we may never experience that purpose unless we learn to forgive. Our purpose is to allow the love of God to flow through us out into a hurting world. But it will only come to pass as we open our hearts to others by forgiveness. As you forgive others the love of God will flow through you.

Forgiveness (Part 2)

God has called each of us for a divine purpose. It’s our reason for being alive. But we may never experience that purpose unless we learn to forgive. Our purpose is to allow the love of God to flow through us out into a hurting world. But it will only come to pass as we open our hearts to others by forgiveness. As you forgive others the love of God will flow through you.

Forgiveness of the Inner Person

There are some things that God is extremely interested in. One of them is our willingness to forgive others. Forgiveness is also the key to inner healing. Forgiveness that does not manifest itself in love is not real forgiveness.

The Nature of God

A study of the book of Hosea. Jamie reveals 3 principles from the great love story between Hosea and Gomer. Hosea wanted to communicate God’s love for his people. Little did he know it would involve marrying a common prostitute to reveal the nature of God.

We Must Go Back to Bethel

Jamie teaches on the story of Jacob and how, like Jacob, if we want God’s blessings restored in our lives, we must “return to our Bethel” and dwell with the Lord. He is just and will forgive us.

When A Christian Takes Advantage of You

What do you do when a Christian betrays you or just plain take advantage of you? It may be someone you have entrusted with your money, or your love, or anything else you might have given them that has value to you. Jamie shares from his own experiences and lists a number of principles we should put into action to address these kinds of situations.

Lessons from Lebanon

Following Jamie’s three-week trip to norther Israel, he shares his experiences visiting an Israeli kibbutz of Christians who are dedicated to serving in Lebanon. He also gives 5 lessons in giving, taken from the incident in the garden of Gethsemane when Jesus heals the ear of the servant of the high priest.

Symbol of Freedom

In this Easter morning service, Jamie discusses some of the various symbols that have represented Christianity across the centuries, including the earliest found in the Roman catacombs. But more than a symbol, what’s important is our relationship with Jesus, who became a fragrant offering unto God, the aroma of which still lingers in the world today.

Apples of Gold

Jamie teaches that we need to be an encouragement to each other and not bring others down by negative or discouraging words.

Senior Saints (Changes)

Jamie teaches on the principle that no matter how old we are God wants us to be useful in His Kingdom. In fact, the older we are the more we have to offer in terms of spiritual wisdom and life experiences. We are never too old to serve.

When You are Born Ugly

Jamie teaches on the story of Laban’s two daughters, Rachel, who is beautiful, and Leah, who is not. And of Jacob, who desired Rachel but was tricked into marrying Leah. Yet, God had a plan for Leah.

Come Quickly Lord Jesus

Jamie discusses several simple things the Bible says about end times and the second coming of Jesus.

Risky Living

Worldliness focuses on things of time, rather than on things eternal. Anything that focuses on the things of time is worldly. We must set our affections on things above, on things eternal.

The New Wine

The scriptures tell us, in the last days, there will be an increasing polarization between the spiritual and the carnal. There will be a great falling away but also the Holy Spirit will fall on all flesh and we are seeing evidence of that today.

You are the Light of the World

Jamie teaches that God has a plan and a purpose for your life. He is the one who has placed in your heart certain and specific dreams and ambitions to serve Him. From time to time we may need to re-cultivate the dreams God placed in our heart, look at those dreams and put aside all talk of impossible obstacles and soar once again in our concepts of what God wants for us — to be His light in this dark and fallen world.

God is in Control

Jamie draws lessons for today from the book of Habakkuk. The Old Testament book is full of Habakkuk’s complaints yet it ends with a song. God teaches Habakkuk three critical spiritual lessons that are applicable for Christians today.

Walk into the Sunrise

Reasoning together is good. But when it comes to understanding God, He is not a God who can be fathomed through human reasoning or logic. We must have faith. Even though the world will call us foolish, faith is the only way to know God and to be in His presence.

Perseverance and God’s Faithfulness

In his last message before his death, Jamie talks frankly and openly about his faith in God and how perseverance through trials is the only way to life everlasting.

Royal Priesthood

Faith moves us into eternal life. It brings us into the fullness of the Christian life as a holy and delivered people. So if you live in God’s ways and keep His commands, you will live in holiness and the Lord your God will bless you.

Source of Life

Jamie teaches on what to do when you receive bad news. This message is taken from his sermon the week after he received his diagnosis of inoperable cancer.

Through Suffering

How do we have faith as we go through periods of suffering? Faith is knowing God is with us through it all. Faith welcomes God’s purpose for us regardless of our circumstances.

True and False Teachers

Jamie focuses on the warnings in the Bible regarding false teachers, yet how we as Christians must first learn to live in this world as Christ did — expressing agape love.

Here is Your Mother

In this mother’s day message, Jamie references the words of Jesus on the cross telling John to take care of His mother. “If the Christian gospel has any meaning at all” Jamie states. “It means family is forever. It must be a priority for us to honor our parents as they grow older.”

Honoring our Parents

In this Mother’s Day message, Jamie shares of the importance and benefits of honoring our parents as commanded by God. We should make things right with our parents and that may start by forgiving them. God will honor your efforts as you honor your parents.

Priorities for Fathers

Jamie teaches on making proper choices when it comes to setting proper priorities for families. He lists six key points important to maintaining a Godly approach when raising a family that is pleasing to the Lord.

The Complete Family

How quickly material things can divide families. But if you are truly unified in the spirit, material things don’t make any difference. If we walk in the light of Jesus our families will be united.

The Spirit of Adoption

Jamie teaches that God as adopted us into the Kingdom of God as children of God, joint heirs with Christ.

Deception (part 2)

Satan is seeking to deceive us so we can be led away from God’s will in our lives. Using Psalm 19 Jamie gives 6 standards on how to escape the deceptions of Satan.

Running from God

After listing 5 key relationships necessary within the church, Jamie discusses how Christians share a universal problem with Jonah, running from the word of God. That in turn leaves us open to being attacked and deceived by Satan. (June 17, 1976)

Fly High with God

Jamie shares what Christians are to do when Satan attacks and how we can avoid being bewitched by our worldly culture and lured into a false belief of what our faith in Jesus Christ is really all about and how it should be lived.

The Word is Absolute

Satan is a deceiver. He likes to take the very best we have and twist it just a little, so we are sent off target. He does that with some of our words like love and family. He changes them ever so slightly so we miss their true meaning. But the Word that can’t be changed is Jesus Christ. He is absolute and will not change.

Discipleship (Believer’s Meeting)

Jamie teaches on the concept of discipleship as a means of teaching or learning, but that the higher way is through divine revelation. Discipleship under Jesus is designed to bring us to an independent relationship with God the Father.

Victory over Discourgement

Most of us, time to time, have a problem with discouragement. Jamie gives several key points, taken from 2 Corinthians chapter 4, how we, as Christians, can keep from being discouraged in our walk with Christ.

Divorce in the Kingdom (One Flesh)

Jamie talks openly about what the Bible has to say about divorce. Divorce is not necessarily a sin, but it is an admission of failure which stems from sin. Divorce is like abortion. When two become one, it’s against Kingdom principles to break them apart. Yet the same God who forgives abortion will also heal wounds caused by divorce.

Dominion

It is God’s intention that His people rule this planet and that includes having dominion over Satan. Jesus came to restore to us the dominion we once had in the Garden, over all the things in and of this world.
