From the Pulpit: Ain’t no Sunshine When He’s Gone

Darkness is powerful. Darkness is something most of us fear. It tells us nothing about what the surrounding environment holds.


From The Pulpit Making the New Year Count Psalm 90:10-17

There are many different ways to approach a new year. Some engage in the tradition of New

Year’s resolutions, which usually involve a whole lot of good intentions but very little follow


“I am going to lose weight… I am going to get out of debt… I am going to find a mate… I

am going to start a business…” The New Year is an exciting time of new beginnings and fresh

starts. Some get so excited at the prospect of a new year that they begin to proclaim that this year

is “their year.”

“Know Your Limitations” Exodus 33:1

Last summer I was called to audition for a national television talk show where a panel of pastors from all of the country who would discuss topics of the day similar to The View. I knew a cople of guys there, but the producers were matching us up to see who had chemistry.

The night before I wrote in my journal and I said to the Lord, ‘Lord I want this, but with three stipulations. Number one, I only want it if it’s a platform for your glory and for your kingdom. Secondly, I only want it if it will not interfere with the calling on my life to pastor the Faithful Central Bible Church. Thirdly, I only want it if I am not enticed by the money and it will not change my lifestyle.

“Protecting What God Has For You”

I Kings 7:1-2 Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. Then a Lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.”

There was at the time of the text a famine in the land that was so devastating that the people had begun to die out because of starvation. So severe that the bible says people resorted to eating the droppings of pigeons and doves.

“You’ve Got To Believe”

Turn to Matthew 9: 27- 29. Today we are going to talk about believing. A lot of time as Christians we come in and we say we love God. We know the word, but we’ve got to believe in it. It will cause you to move in your life.

No one can believe for you. This is something you have got to do all by yourself. Nobody can be healed for you; nobody can believe for you, you’ve got to believe. You got to know that this is what I want and you cannot allow anybody to stop you, you can’t let things keep you down.

From The Pulpit: “Keys to Overcoming the Bad Report”

Greetings to all and I’m believing God for a favorable year for you and your house. I thank God for the awesome opportunity of serving the Westchester/Ladera Heights/Inglewood communities over the past 15 years as Founder and Senior Pastor of Arise Christian Center.

My heart and vision is to encourage people to go higher in their divine purpose and godly discipline. After spending nearly a year on 102.3 KJLH Spread the Word program, hosting the Encouraging You to Go Higher Broadcast, I’ve come to be known as the “Encouraging Pastor”. I believe that in the hour and season of bad news and bad reports, courage is a vital asset.
