Father of Mercies, God of All Comfort
Jim Franks

There are numerous themes to explore during the Feast of Tabernacles. But there could be no Millennium or plan of God without mercy (forgiveness) and comfort (consolation). In 2 Corinthians 1:3 Paul describes God as “the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” This is the God we worship.

Taste of the Kingdom
Chad Messerly

The news of the world we live in can be too much to handle on a daily basis.  There are many things happening that have the ability to wear us down.  That is why we have a yearly reminder of what is ahead under the wonderful reign of Jesus Christ.

Preparing to Teach
Mark Whynaucht

What is this life all about? We know for sure that it has a beginning and an end, and that we are on a pilgrimage between the two points. What is supposed to happen during this pilgrimage? What should we be doing and accomplishing in this life now? Learning to teach!

Hope for the World Tomorrow

Hope is a feeling most humans have. It is vital in order for humans to thrive and survive. God gives us the greatest hope humans can have through our understanding of His plan. The Feast of Tabernacles is a powerful reinforcement of the hope God gives to His people.

A Pure Language
Greg Sargent

The gospel will be preached to all the world beginning at Christ’s return. Zephaniah 3:9 tells us God will restore a pure language so all will worship God with one accord. There was only one language in the evil world prior to the Flood. How will God solve the problem of wickedness?

Which Horse Will You Ride?
Britton Taylor

At His first coming Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. At His second coming He will ride on a white horse. This sermon will explore both events and show their importance and how they apply to our role during the millennial reign of Jesus Christ.

A Chance for Salvation for All

The casualties on both sides in Custer’s last stand illustrate the second resurrection.  We look forward to working personally with individual friends and relatives.

Your Purpose for Your Pilgrimage
Clyde Kilough

People around the world go on religious pilgrimages, and so do we. But why? What is God’s purpose for having us go to His “pilgrim Feast”?
