Our Latest Sermon Notes
This past weekend, Pastor Jim taught the third message in his four-part series entitled, “Prayers That Will Change Your Life.” In this message, he expounded on the prayer in Philippians 1:6, 9–11. He reiterated that these biblical prayers are anointed and when you pray them over your loved ones—and yourself too—they get results. Pastor Jim says he prays these prayers over the Living Word congregation regularly, and his desire is that Living Word members would also develop the discipline to pray these prayers on a regular basis as well.
Not only is Dr. Billy Brim a prophet of God but she is also a long-time friend of this ministry; time and again, God has used her to bring spiritual blessings to Living Word right at the needed time. Billye updated us on the progress of the Migdal property in Israel and talked about God’s sacred calendar of redemption. To get her complete teaching while she was here, you’ll want to listen to all three of her messages!
This past weekend, Pastor Mac taught his 10th installment of his series “Wisdom for Living.” We’ve been chasing the truth about wisdom that it is the ability to discern the best ends and the best means to achieve those ends. As believers, we acknowledge the best ends are what God says He has for us in our lives. In this message, we’re looking at “The Wisdom of Connecting” and how connection occurs on two levels.
This past weekend, Pastor Jim gave his second installment in his teaching series entitled, “Prayers That Will Change Your Life.” He introduced the congregation to anointed prayers in the Bible that we can pray over ourselves and over our loved ones that will absolutely bring about change in their lives. Do you have loved ones in your life that are struggling in life? Then this is a teaching you need to hear!
This past weekend, Pastor Mac introduced us to another word with regard to his series on “Wisdom for Living.” It’s the word “contentment.” It may seem kind of milquetoast at first, but if you think about it, contentment has the greatest impact on your life. Ask yourself this question: Are you content in your life? Or are you discontent with how your life is being played out? In this ninth installment of his wisdom series, Pastor Mac teaches about contentment and how to attain it in your life no matter what life brings.

The 2023 Upper Midwest Faith Explosion was a huge success in that not only were many stirred in their faith, but they were stirred in their hearts for world harvest. Quoting Matthew 24:14, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come,” the speakers reminded us of the importance of getting the Gospel out to all the nations. When that is accomplished, Messiah will come. Speakers Jerry Savelle, Kenneth Copeland, and Jessie Duplantis each had unique messages for the UMFE congregation!
This past weekend, Pastor Mac taught on “Focus on the Future,” which is his eighth installment of the series, Wisdom for Life. Philippians 3:13 tells us to forget those things which are behind and to reach forth to those things in the future. “But you can’t reach forth until you’ve forgotten those things which are past,” said Pastor Mac. It doesn’t matter if your past is good or bad, you must forget it. Focusing on the past will rob you of your ability to make the Word your expectation of future experience.
This past weekend, Pastor Mac taught his 7th installment of his Wisdom for Living series entitled, “The Focus Process.” James 1:5 says that if you lack wisdom about anything that you should ask God and He will give wisdom to you liberally. Maybe you’ve prayed about a situation, and nothing has changed. You’re now at your wits end and don’t know what to do. What you do is go to the source of wisdom… the Word of God.
No other generation in history has the number of things that vie for our attention. The world has so many distractions that it sometimes can be difficult to keep our focus on God. But as Pastor Mac taught us in his sixth installment in his series, “Wisdom for Living,” we must ruthlessly guard our time with the Lord because without it, it will be difficult to hear from the Holy Spirit the wisdom we need to fulfill His will and plan for our lives.
