This is an interesting title, “Mark of the Beast – David and Goliath.” A must watch sermon. Pastor James Hopkins brought the message today at One Way Christian Center. He started in Revelation chapter 13 with the Mark of the Beast and some very interesting comments about the popular drink Monster and their marketing. Then he gave our church a warning on several fronts. 1. Maintain our doctrinally pure message and preach with authority. 2. Do not lose our first love. 3. You shall know them by their fruits (continue and step up our witness) 4. Beware of the Devil because he will attack a church doing God’s work. He will attack each of us at our weakest point but he will not prevail against the church of God.
This introduction transitioned into the story of David and Goliath. David was facing a monster; all of Israel was afraid but David, anointed from the Lord, ran to his enemy and slew him. He met the challenge head on and defeated it. How many times do we let our Goliath torment us? How many times do we cower with fear from our Goliath? Rise up you are anointed from God. You have the message of the gospel through Jesus Christ. The victory is ours the battle has already been won. Go forth with purpose, hold your head up because you belong to the KING of KINGS, no weapon formed against you will prosper.
