This is Part Three of the series, and are notes taken from the sermon given by Pastor Jonathan Wiggins on Saturday, July 5, 2014.

► Exodus 6:6-7 contains the four promises.
► “Deliverance”: I have issues…
► We need to connect with new believers to help them move forward. We need Godly friends to help pull us out of our holes filled with muddy water…
► We need to be nice to our fellow parishioners. Don't let visitors think that they are invisible. So turn on your welcome…
► Small groups connect, protect and grow. (See Rez's small groups)
► Read in the Bible about the proper use of the gifts of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:1-39.
► Six Flags over Jesus!

The Cup of Salvation

This is Part Two of the series, and are notes taken from the sermon given by Pastor Jonathan Wiggins on Saturday, June 28, 2014.

I see Jesus in you!
► Deliverance is getting the bondage of sin out of you. We are delivered from that kind of thinking…
► Jesus came for the sick, not for the healthy…
► Heaven rejoices over one saved sinner!
► Reach out to people so that the Church on weekends isn't about you anymore.
► God is a father, that is why the lost ones are so important.
► It's all of our jobs to relay the message of Christ. The pastor can't do it all by himself.
► How to reach the lost:

  1. Take personal responsibility.
  2. Build relationship.
  3. Tell them your story.
  4. Invite them to weekend services (y'all who read this are definitely invited to Resurrection Fellowship!)
  5. They will experience: Celebration, Inspiration, Preparation, and Invitation.

► Strengthen the hospitality and welcome to newcomers.
► Be user friendly. Relate to the person.
► Growth track…
► Exodus 6:6-7 (The four cups of the Seder meal stand for Salvation, Deliverance, Redemption and Fulfillment.)

Four Cups Series

This is a sermon series done by Pastor Jonathan Wiggins, Senior Pastor of Resurrection Fellowship in Loveland, Colorado on the four cups of the Seder meal and their significance. BTW, Rez is an awesome place to worship, with the Holy Spirit filling the place on service nights, especially Saturday evenings. For those that worry about these things, it would be classified as a Charismatic Church.

HONOR ISRAEL!
► Taste everything God has for you.
► Prophets can be a very irritating bunch of guys.
► You're special because God loves you but you're not special. So let the air out of your head.
► We should be and remain teachable.
► As long as there are lost people out there the church needs to grow.
► God is looking to bring up a bride from the body of the church.
► Minister the cup of salvation to the lost souls! That should be our highest priority.
► Sin breeds blindness.
► A life without purpose is a miserable life.
► God wants our lives to shine and make a difference in the world.
► 1 Peter 5:6, 2:9
► Mark 9:23

This book is a compilation of notes from pastor's sermons that I've had the pleasure to hear as I've attended churches in the Fort Collins area. Where possible, I'll include the date, name of the pastor and the church. Please don't take offense if I've failed to include the information, as sometimes it's taken on a napkin…

Baptized Today!

Praise Jesus! Finally the prodigal son comes home. It was great, kind of indescribable. No I didn't spout off and speak in tongues, or not much anyhow. And no, I don't have the peace of mind that I should right now, because there was an “interferer” there (my fault for letting what transpired before and after the baptism bother me, and I have to give that up to the Lord and the Holy Spirit, which I'm sharing because it feels necessary. The church is not blind to the issue, but we have to approach this with the mercy and loving kindness of Jesus Christ himself).

It's such an uplifting spiritual and emotional experience, that it is very hard to describe accurately. The peace of Jesus Christ fell upon me, at least for a time, and I got tingles, teary eyed, weak legs, a weird feeling that I can't describe in my head. Adult baptism, folks, is akin to a marriage. The bridegroom is Jesus Christ, and you are the bride. It's a holy matrimony, born of water and the Spirit. I'll never feel alone again, because Jesus will always be there, in the best and worst of times.

So where to now? Wherever the Lord leads… I want to be a warrior for Christ, but that may not

Testifying of Deliverance

This story is a story about deliverance. To many of my friends this writing will seem strange coming for me. Some may even abandon the friendship and run away screaming. That's your right, LOL. It's a scary concept, that our afflictions and addictions are the result of demonic oppression (not possession, don't confuse the two). Deliverance is definitely a concept foreign to many, including most of the body of the Church. To most, the best that can describe it is exorcism.

So I had deliverance done a few weeks back, at All Nations Church, 1412 Webster Ave in Fort Collins, (970) 493-7938. I went into the deliverance with full skepticism. I believed it to be something akin to hypnosis or suggestion. Folks, I tell you the truth, I was totally WRONG!

So I got delivered of the demon of addiction, and the demon of anger. It is astounding. The following occurred:

  1. I lost the urge to consume marijuana. It just went away. This from a medical marijuana user who smoked at least a gram or more per day. Gone, 4 Sunday's ago. I've smoked marijuana almost every day since I was eleven, except for Navy boot camp, being in jail, or being broke.
  2. I lost the urge to drink. Not that I had drunk much
