A Real War Against Spiritual Terrorism

A Real War Against Spiritual Terrorism

The Sermon: Matthew 10: 24-33 (NKJV)

24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household! 26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

The Scripture Reading – Ephesians 6: 10-17

The enemy is powerful, crafty and superior to us in very way. Yet for us fights the Valiant One. We have an ally-Savior Whose superiority has been manifest from the very beginning and Who has given us His equally superior weaponry to take our stand and gain victory in Him.

The Distribution of the Lord’s Supper (Hymn LSB 622 : Lord Jesus Christ, You Have Prepared Hymnary.org link )

(Because God’s Word presents the reception of this Sacrament as a most intimate expression of spiritual and confessional unity, we ask that only those who have publicly professed such oneness of faith and belief with us by membership at Berea or another CLC church come forward. Please speak with pastor if you are seeking a church home or have any questions.)
