Five Stones Church Sermon: God Is Trinity (January 16, 2022)
We study the doctrine of the Trinity to know God on a deep, tangible level of relationship. What Is The Trinity? The one God who eternally exists as three distinct persons – Father, Son , Holy Spirit. Each are fully and equally God in eternal relations with each other. They each think, act, feel, speak, and relate because they are persons and not impersonal forces. NOTE – The Holy Spirit is not an IT!!! Trinity in Scripture: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19 God The Father Isaiah 64:8 – But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. God The Son Google “Who is Jesus?” 1.3 BILLION results (0.78 seconds) ONLY way to God – John 14:6 – Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. God The Spirit WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT? About half a billion results (0.73 seconds) He is as much God as is the Father and the Son. Holy Spirit lives inside of you. You are God’s temple: 1 Corinthians 6:19 (Amplified Bible) – Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is within you, whom you have [received as a gift] from God, and that you are not your own [property]? Big Picture Purpose: 🔥 You have a body and a soul. 🔥Your body commits sin and your soul is condemned. 🔥When you die your body goes into the ground and your soul goes to hell. ✝️ When you accept Christ as your Savior, God in the Holy Spirit lives within you. ✝️ Now you have body, soul & Spirit. ✝️ When your body sins and you repent, the Spirit restores your soul. ✝️ When you die, your body goes into the ground, your soul goes to heaven and the Spirit who is God, returns to God. John 14:26 – But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. There is FREEDOM: 2 Corinthians 3:17 – “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” Why is Theology important? To trust God we must know God. To know ourselves we must know God. To know God is to understand that God is TRINITY – The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. DO THIS TO STAY CONNECTED. #1.

Five Stones Church Service Sermon; Let's Stay Together (1-09-2022)
Let's Stay Together Five Stones Church Service Sermon (January 9, 2022) - Welcome to our Housewarming Celebration. -The miracle is in God’s provision for a location where His power and blessings will manifest in growing His kingdom. -The miracle is for everyone who put their faith to work over the short weeks to transform this space into church where the Body of Christ can gather to praise Him. - The miracle is in you who were stirred by the Holy Spirit to be here today. -The miracle is in coming together with other believers to celebrate Team Jesus. Coming together is the miracle and it doesn’t matter WHERE we meet. It’s just important THAT we meet. And because we have committed TO meet, God our Father has blessed us all with a place to connect. We are planting a connected community. Connection is vital. NOT good at is STAYING TOGETHER. Barna Research - 2000 that 45% practicing Christians. 2021, only 1 in 4 (25%) were walking in faith. The Body of Christ is not staying together, but where are we going? - Most scatter back into their secular world, - some bounce in and out of church and - many reject God altogether. While the Body of Believers continues to dwindle, Barna shows people identified as atheists have more than doubled in the same time frame. How do we solve the challenge of staying together as the Body of Christ? Answer – God’s Word Focus Scripture for today. It’s found in Acts 2:42-47. ACTS 2 (NIV) The Fellowship of the Believers 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. PROBLEM – STAYING TOGETHER Living life as the Body of Christ requires an intentional effort, but it’s not always easy. HOW DO I APPLY ACTS 2:42-47 IN MY LIFE THIS WEEK? 1. Read the Bible every day. 2. Pray with tangible expectation and unshakable faith in God’s will and work to be done. NO MORE WISHY WASHY PRAYERS 3. Connect with another believer – meal, gym, hobby, coffee shop 4. Practice charity and giving – Giving is connected to the condition of your heart – You can learn to be generous. 5. Share Jesus with someone this week. Pick out a Scripture verse and pray for an opportunity to share – The Holy Spirit will make it happen if you are willing. 6. Praise God in all things – Adopt an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE. 7. Commit to Stay In The Room – Get Connected – Invite one person to come with you next Sunday. God is going to grow the number harvested (salvations) we just have to be willing to work in the harvest fields. I love you and God bless you STAY CONNECTED. #1.

How To Be Forgiven by God
🙏👀❤️How To Be Forgiven By God Seeking forgiveness requires us to repent, which means to turn away from the offensive behavior. Simply saying you are sorry without a change of heart and a change of behavior doesn't cut it. How To Seek Forgiveness: 1. Beware of vague guilt. 2. Confess your sins quickly and specifically. 3. Ask God to forgive you, not to excuse you. 4. Don’t dwell 5. Surrender self-examination to God. 6. Pursue Good 👇👇👇👇👇👇 Psalm 139:23-24 CONNECT - https://linktr.ee/scottsilverii
Should Women Remain Silent In Church?
Should Women Remain Silent In Church? This is an argument that just won’t stop - Are women supposed to be quiet in church? I want you to take a peek at the Greek word “sigaō." More about that in a minute. Are women excluded from speaking or exercising their supernatural gifts in the church? Well, way back in the Old Testament days, Joel said that: “After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people.Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will have dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, both men and women." (Joel 2: 28-29) Did you see that? Sons and daughters WILL prophesy. Now leap forward into the New Testament to see that John wrote in the Book of Acts: ‘God says: In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all people.Your sons and daughters will prophesy…. (Acts 2:17) Yep, fulfillment of OT prophesy about what else? Prophecy! Now it's going to get good and sticky as we unpack more NT in 1 Corinthians and you'll get introduced to that Greek word sigaō again. Chapter 14 is talking about how to conduct an orderly church service. Check out 1 Corinthians 14:26 - "What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up." Paul is talking to brothers and sisters - That means men and women. Next, he says in 14:28 - "But if there is no interpreter, then anyone who speaks in a different language should be quiet in the church meeting." Paul is saying that men or women should be quiet if there is no one to interpret them speaking in tongues. Quiet is the Greek word, sigaō and it literally means stop speaking. Now, things get better as Paul tells them in 14:29-30 that if prophets are speaking and someone else (man or woman) gets a prophetic word that the others should be quiet. Once again the Greek word sigaō is used to mean stop talking so the other person (man or woman) can talk. Finally, Paul wraps it up in 14:34 with what is often used as a weapon against women to say they are not allowed to talk in church. The verse says, "The women should keep quiet in these church meetings." Did you see that? There's the word quiet and by now you should not be shocked to know the Greek word used is sigaō, or to take turns allowing others to speak. But..... you say. How do we know Paul is talking about women speaking, praying or prophesying? Welp, 1 Corinthians 11:5 cuts through the fog by clarifying, "But every woman who prays or prophesies..." That seems pretty clear that women are allowed and encouraged to speak through the authority of their Spiritual gifts. Sigaō is applied to the same instructions for men and women as it tells them to be courteous to one another during worship by being quiet if someone else has something to say. Should woman remain silent in church? Nope, but we should all use good manners. BE DIFFERENT, Scott

How To Get Your Life Out Of The Storm
Same Storm; Different Boat Mark 4:35-41 Jesus Calms the Storm 35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” ***************************************************** Do you have a relationship with Jesus Christ?

I'm willing to bet my experience is very similar to yours and whether they know it or not, the church cliques are driving away the very people Jesus pursued. 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇 12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[a] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. ~ 1 Corinthians 12:12-13 CONNECT - https://linktr.ee/scottsilverii

Will We Be Forced Into A One World Order?
Facebook User Question: Scott I was wondering if I could get your input on all this going on. You and Leah inspire me. I know y’all are both godly people. I have also met you both and trust y’all. I’m petrified of what is going on in our country. I try to watch the news. Yet not let the media scare me worse than I am. I pray daily that God will heal our country and we can go back to normal. My children are scared and miss their friends and school. I try to comfort them. There is so much floating around. Everyone has a theory and some want to make your fear worse. My question is do you think we will go back to normal? Do you think we will stay locked up in our houses and be under new world order? I value what you think. Thank you sir
