After over 800 years of the Lord loving and warning the nation to turn to Him and away from idols it is time to execute justice. The Lord has finally moved to eliminate the nation of Judah, with the annihilation of Jerusalem and the Temple, but it didn't happen overnight. Like them, where we are today is an accumulation of all the days that preceded us.

God made the distinction between the priests who were not faithful to Him and those who weren't in their service to Him in the new Temple in the Millennium. The former will be relegated to serving the people, and the latter will have the privilege of ministering to the Lord. It is when we minister to the Lord that it becomes obvioius that we have been with Him in our own lives.
Waiting on the Lord Isaiah 40 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:51:18 2013-01-20 Serving the LordProphecyChronological History of Israel The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 125. Waiting is so much more than staying still and doing nothing; it is about being bound up with what the Lord wants us to do. And if God is so powerful, why do we act like 'practical athiests'?
The Servant of the Lord Isaiah 42 Pastor Brian Nevins 01:06:00 2013-02-10 Serving the LordJesusGod the SonChronological History of IsraelJesus: Servant of God Jesus: God's Servant Series - Number 1. Jesus is the servant of God, serving man through His work on the cross

Just as God calls upon Israel as a witness to all He is, He calls upon us as well.

Setting Our Face Matthew 1-11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:43:29 2013-03-24 EasterServing the LordProphecyFaithJesus: Servant of God Jesus: Servant of God Series Volume 2: On the day of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem He had already determined that nothing was going to prevent Him from fulfilling the mission He had come for. As we desire to become Christlike, one of the qualities to emulate, is keeping that which is important a priority, and disregarding the unimportant, the trivial, and those things that become distractions.

(PLEASE NOTE: THE FIRST 10 MINUTES ARE RECORDED AT LOW QUALITY). God the Father was satisfied with the sacrifice of the Son.

Priorities Haggai 1-2 Pastor Brian Nevins 01:07:34 2013-07-14 Serving the LordTrialsChronological History of IsraelObedience The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 135. After stirring the hearts of the people in Babylon to return Jerusalem to build the Temple, discouragement and opposition lead to frustration and finally floating off to other priorities, especially those leading to ones own comfort - while the Temple remained overgrown and unfinished. Is there a 'temple' the Lord has asked you to build, and yet you have lost focus and let your attention lapse?
Our Search for Significance Zechariah 1-2 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:53:10 2013-07-21 Serving the LordAuthorityChronological History of IsraelRestorationIsrael The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 136. Do you often question your significance before the Lord, or the significance of the work you do? Especially when it is small work and in difficult circumstances. There is no small work, no insignificant work, in God's eyes when it is the work He has given us to do. The Lord used the prophet Zechariah to encourage the returning Jews in their work, and this message resounds as strongly with us today.

God’s will is to be accomplished, without you, in spite of you, or through you. It is for this that you were brought to this place and it is now time to step up. Through the miraculous perhaps, but more often through daily obedience. It is in daily being a "good and faithful servant" that the Lord will use us in even greater things.
I Have Loved You Malachi 1 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:54:41 2013-10-05 Man's Sinful ConditionServing the LordLoveSovereigntyChronological History of IsraelFree Will The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 147. Do you know that God loves you? How do you know God loves you. Our attitudes toward the Lord and the things of the Lord all are dependant on how we answer this question. Fortunately, it doesn't take much to come to an accurate answer.
Foundation of the Family Malachi 2 Pastor Brian Nevins 01:04:26 2013-10-13 Serving the LordChronological History of IsraelMarriageFamilyDivorce The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 148. When we think the Lord doesn't love us we tend to disregard His precepts and commands and take on the philisophies of the world. The Lord points to the subsequent corruption of the priests in service and in marriage. We are to overcome the ethics of the world, and these two areas are critical. But first we must understand that the Lord not only loves us, but clearly desires the best for us.

The Final Word Malachi 4 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:44:19 2013-10-27 Serving the LordProphecyEnd TimesChronological History of IsraelObedience The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 150.

Since leadership is influence, we all have a measure of leadership. The Book of Nehemiah is the Christian Leadership Manual. He began with a burden and ended with a mission, all along relying on the Lord to develop his vision and his plan.

After we read the Bible, after we pray, what happens after the 'Amen'? Do we hearken the Word of God and the voice of God; listening with the intent of doing?
Recruited, Rejoicing, Reinforcing Nehemiah 11-13 Pastor Brian Nevins 01:00:38 2014-02-02 GraceServing the LordGodly CharacterChronological History of IsraelSubmissionWorshipJoy The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 161. In this last act of the Old Testament, the Lord appoints men of valor to inhabit Jerusalem, and leads them in a joyous celebration. But after all the excitement it comes down to you and the Lord. Will you stay the course?
Christians in Public Life Matthew 5:13-16 Sen Jack Westwood 00:51:36 2014-02-16 Serving the LordGuest Speakers Kentucky State Sen Jack Westwood (Ret) challenges us to recognize and accept our responsibility as Christian citizens to take up our duty in the public square. It is a timely understanding as we face increasing hostility in the government and judicial systems for our faith and stand for righteousness.
Whatever He Tells You To Do. Do It John 2:1-11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:31:27 2014-05-25 Serving the LordFaithObedienceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 014. Jesus will often give us direct instructions without clear outcome. In the miracle of the water to wine, Jesus glorified Himself and let servants be a part of this wonderful event. It is still true today,
Fishers of Men Luke 4:42-5:11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:36:46 2014-08-10 DiscipleshipServing the LordFaithChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 22. At some point in our relationship with Jesus we must realize that this is no mere walk with a friend discussing the events of the day or the matters of the heart. It is not a matter of getting wisdom so we can decide how to move forward with difficult decisions. It is about surrender.
Praying in Disciples Matthew 12:15-21 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:42:02 2014-09-28 GracePrayerServing the LordLeadershipChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 28. (includes passages Mark 3:7-19 Luke 6:12-16). Jesus put great emphasis on His own need for prayer. As He considered the frailty of His own disciples, and what He would ask them to do as His apostles - His appointed messengers - He spent the night in prayer to His Father. How much more do we need to be in prayer for our lives?
Characteristics of the Kingdom Matthew 5:1-9 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:47:17 2014-10-05 SinServing the LordGodly CharacterChronological Life of JesusSermon on the Mount Chronological Life of Jesus - 29. (includes passage Luke 6:17-26). The Beatitudes are the characteristics of only one kind of person - one who loves and follows Jesus. You take on the nature of those whom with you hang.
Acts of Worship - Part 1 Matthew 6:1-4 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:41:00 2014-11-16 Serving the LordGodly CharacterChronological Life of JesusCharityHypocrisySermon on the Mount Chronological Life of Jesus - 35. Our worship of the Lord is expressive should naturally result in extending charity to those around us. But do we 'do good' to impress others and present a false idea of how we really are? Or is our only concern what God sees and thinks of us?
Unite My Mind and Heart Matthew 6:22-34 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:40:28 2014-12-14 Serving the LordMoney and FinanceChronological Life of JesusWorry / AnxietySermon on the Mount Chronological Life of Jesus - 39 (also references Luke 12:22-34) - Jesus tells us not to worry, not to have an anxious mind, when it comes to our earthly possessions. It is the strain of a divided heart. There is only one solution to that - commit it all to heaven.
The Cost Matthew 10:32-11:1 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:39:51 2015-06-14 DiscipleshipServing the LordObedienceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 60.

The Urgency of the Call Luke 10:1-20 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:51:23 2016-01-10 EvangelismServing the LordObedienceJoyChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 86 (with reference to Matthew 11:20-24). As Jesus drew near to His departure, He had a sense of urgency to 'gather the harvest' of helpless and hopeless people who yearned for a relationship with God - even though they didn't realize it. That same sense of urgency should grip any who love God and man as Jesus' promised return draws near.
The One Thing Luke 10:37-42 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:32:48 2016-01-31 Serving the LordGodly CharacterWorshipResting in the LordChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus -89 - We so often struggle in our relationship with Jesus between doing and being, as if it is either / or, when it is indeed both. In this familiar account of Martha and Mary it is not a contrast of who is right and who is wrong, but who has chosen the greater thing - the one thing that matters more than all others.
Found Waiting, Watching, and Working Luke 12:35-59 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:39:17 2016-02-28 Serving the LordEnd TimesChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus -93. History has a beginning and an end. Jesus promised that there will be a time when He once again intersects with human history. first coming for His church and then to judge the world. There is nothing preventing His return. He asks - will you be found ready or will you be found leary?
Greatness in Serving Matthew 20:17-28 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:41:49 2016-08-14 Serving the LordGodly Character Chronological Life of Jesus 114 - (with reference to Mark 10:32-45 and Luke 18:31-34) Our greatest obstacle to serving God, and doing it with the proper heart, is getting in our own way. Jesus takes the opportunity, with the display of His apostle's blind ambition, to explain what it truly means to serve God.
The Greatest Commandment - The Greatest Question Matthew 22:34-46 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:41:01 2016-10-30 SalvationServing the LordJesusGod the SonLoveChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 123 -(with reference to Mark 12:28-37; Luke 20:41-44). The greatest commandment is well recited but not well lived. What does it mean to love God with your entirety, and to love your neighbor as you love yourself? But there is a question that needs to be answered first - who is the Son of God?
Losing Our Religion For the Sake of the Truth - Part 1 Matthew 23:1-13 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:34:58 2016-11-06 Serving the LordLeadershipChronological Life of JesusLegalismHypocrisy Chronological Life of Jesus 124 - We can easily get caught up in a religion created by men because it is easier to be doing than to be trusting. Jesus exhorts His disciples to true faith instead of false religion; to desire to be servants instead of masters - for such is the kingdom of God.
Losing Our Religion For the Sake of the Truth - Part 2 Matthew 23:11-39 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:53:43 2016-11-13 Serving the LordGiving / TithingChronological Life of JesusHypocrisyHumilitySpiritual Freedom/Bondage Chronological Life of Jesus 125 (with reference to Mark 12:41-44).

Closed Doors Matthew 24:27-25:13 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:46:17 2016-12-11 Serving the LordGod the Holy SpiritProphecyEnd TimesHopeChronological Life of JesusOlivet Discourse Chronological Life of Jesus 129 - In these parables Jesus strongly stresses the need to be ready for His return. In two of them He 'closes the door'; imagery that clearly excludes those who refuse to see the signs of His return from heaven. Are you ready for Jesus to return or His bride?
Some Will and Some Won't Matthew 25:31-46 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:49:16 2017-01-08 GraceServing the LordProphecyEnd TimesChronological Life of JesusGloryOlivet Discourse Chronological Life of Jesus 131 - Jesus tells us that there will be a day of judgment for the entire world. Based not on their morality, but on their treatment of His 'brethren', they will be allowed to continue on toward salvation, or be forever lost in torment. The sin of indifference is something none of us can afford.
We Wish to See Jesus John 12:20-33 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:39:09 2017-01-15 Serving the LordJesus: Servant of GodChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 132 - When some very interested men asked to see Jesus, He offered a self-portrait, which includes servanthood, even to the point of His own death. And it doesn't stop there: as His disciples, we too are called to serve, even to the point of being dead to ourselves.

Pentecost was the beginning of the church. While the miracles and and signs were amazing, it was not the sound of the mighty rushing wind, the tongues or even the baptism of 3000 that was God's sustaining work. It was the word, the worship, communion and prayer the matured the Body of Christ. This is the foundation of every Christ honoring church, and the plumbline of all practice.
Template for Problem Solving Acts 6:1-8 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:51:47 2017-11-12 Serving the LordGodly CharacterChronological Study-Early Church 012 - Chronological Study of the Early Church. When a problem arose in the early days of the church it took spiritual wisdom and a desire to do the right thing to keep Satan from using it to his advantage. Thus was born the office of the deacon in the church. Servants of the highest caliber, who were to be filled with wisdom and the Holy Spirit so that they might tend to even the most obscure of ministries.

In one of the most famous scenes from the Bible, Saul the persecutor of Christians is laid low and begins a lifelong journey devoted to the Jesus whom he tried to eliminate.

Our obedience to Him might find us in situations and places we never may have imagined. And getting there is always an opportunity to serve Him. This time took him to the verge of changiing not only his own heart, but the world.

As the Gospel begins to spread we see strong dependence by the church on the Holy Spirit, This leads to strong leadership, and a willingness to be lead into new things - resulting in the Gospel being taken to all of the known world. What would be the result if the church today was just as dependent and open to the leading of the Holy Spirit? What if we were willing to be 'set aside' for the work of God?
